Regarding the rules above: speaking out publicly in a reckless manner, encouraging toxic behavior, and/or fueling drama within the community outside of RP could result in being removed from the community. Gas lighting, stirring the pot and inciting drama is unacceptable.
Any complaints, disputes or queries are to be handled by: Creating a ticket in discord for staff to handle your situation effectively and appropriately. To appeal a ban, please put in a “ban appeal ticket” - that is the ONLY way to handle appealing a ban.
*Do not DM staff directly. All issues need to be handled in tickets.
Under no circumstances should you take any personal issues that you have with the way a scene played out and make it public. Do not attack someone in their DMs or comment about it on their live streaming platform. If you have a problem - open a ticket and let staff deal with it. If not, this could be seen as a form of meta-gaming and result in a ban.
If something has been lost within the game due to a bug, open a ticket in Discord and put your evidence in there for staff to see. Items will only be comped with provided evidence and within reason. All comps will be done at staff’s discretion and there is no guarantee that your items or money will be refunded.
Playing any type of music, copyright or non-copyright, is not allowed to be played through your microphone/voicebox. The only type of music that is allowed is the music that you can play from a TV using a Youtube link, but it must be non-copyright.
FailRP is defined as failing to stick to your in-game roleplaying. This could be anything from talking out-of-character, breaking the physics of real-life mannerisms just because you know it is a game, and/or simply not acting in your character’s manner.
You must stay in character at all times while on the server. Breaking character could result in a ban. Some examples of breaking character or roleplaying in an unrealistic manner could be:
Each character you create on Lucid must be unique in their own ways. You may not have 2 of the same style character. If you perma one style character, you cannot bring in a new character that is exactly like your previous character.
Example: You cannot perma a character who was a Vago and then bring in a brand new Vago.
For character names, you must create a character with a realistic name. Pre-existing people such as celebrity names or names along the same basis as “Mike Hunt” are not allowed.
If you choose to perma-death a character, you are doing so knowing that you cannot bring that character back from the dead. That character’s life and stories have ended when you perma them. Keep that in mind when contemplating perma-deathing a character.
*If you have concerns that someone is meta-gaming, DO NOT stop your scene to handle it. Let the roleplay happen. When the scene has finished, open up a ticket on Discord with your concerns and attach any evidence you have regarding the meta-gaming. If you contact Admin/Staff/Support on any platform (DMs/whispers/etc) regarding the scene you may be banned. There is a ticket system in place for a reason - do not reach out to staff. Open up a ticket in Discord so we can investigate the scene.
You may steal another player’s vehicle and use it as you wish, but if you are going to store it in your garage then you must only hold it until the next server restart, unless both parties agree otherwise for the scene. After the restart the player is able to retrieve it from impound. It is best to make it known if you are going to steal another person’s vehicle so that they are aware and do not retrieve it from impound before then.
No Random/Vehicular Deathmatch (RDM/VDM)
Every action will have a consequence and set in motion a ripple effect throughout the city. Think worst case scenario, and if you are still happy with your actions, proceed.
Be aware of the reality of “snitching”, retaliation, repeated gun abuse, car chases, same M.O’s etc - if you cannot handle your consequences, that is not on anyone else’s RP.
Any form of in-city robberies are limited to 4 players, unless the situation requires more for a scene in which case you MUST consult staff and have a conversation with them prior. When looking for hostages to kidnap or rob a player, only 4 players are allowed to be present. The only current robbery that can have more than 4 players is the aircraft carrier which cannot exceed 8 players. With general criminal robberies, you must only have 4 active participants in the direct robbery scene. However, you may have additional backup as long as none of that backup becomes directly involved, etc. No backup should shoot, attack, or physically change the scene.
Ambush Roleplay means being aware of the situation and trying to match the number of players on the opposing side - most specifically when it comes to police officers.
To avoid toxicity in PD - If PD has someone in cuffs/in custody, you are not allowed to engage in that scene by trying to break that person out of PD’s custody. You must let PD have their scene now that they have apprehended the suspect.
Also, if 2 officers are currently dealing with a situation, no more than 2 people can retaliate. If it’s only one officer, only one person can be active in that scene.
This does not mean no one else can be present, this just means they can’t be active and trying to control the situation.
Server rule change: Gang activity and other in-city conflicts are limited to 4v4. NO more than 4 members are allowed to engage. The ONLY exception to this rule is if another group approaches you in your specific territory. At that point, the gang/group members already present on their territory can engage.
*War Variant: If you want to extend past the gang war rules, such as numbers, both parties/gang leaders need to agree to it.
Example: Vagos and MC have beef. 6 Vagos are at the taco stand and the MC decides to come to Vagos territory starting a war. Only 4 MC are allowed to go to the scene. Since they showed up to the Vagos territory, the 6 Vagos may engage in the scene. HOWEVER, no more Vagos or MC can show up and engage. Anywhere else in the city it is limited to 4v4 so you better get your 4 best shooters and roleplay out finding neutral territory or get ready to fight with only 4 if you are going to approach someone else's area.
Roleplay which a character may be killed, significantly altered, disfigured, or which would realistically change the long-term behavior of a person must be agreed to by the parties directly involved, and proof of this agreement must be provided to a member of LucidRP if it is asked for - this can simply be a screenshot in most cases.
This is to prevent one player from forcing roleplay on to another player. For example; Character 1 cannot roleplay removing the finger of Character 2 without both players having agreed to the scenario beforehand.
If you are wanting to roleplay a specific scenario that may trigger other’s emotions, for example roleplaying a character with a terminal illness, you must open a ticket in Discord asking for approval by staff as this type of roleplay can be seen as distressful to others.
This rule does not apply if you choose to permanently kill your own character after the actions of another character causes them to be injured.
We define “0-60 Roleplay” as roleplay without any consideration for pacing and/or realism. It’s essentially shortcutting your way to the end result for your win. The best storylines and characters take time to build and progress to make good, realistic roleplay.
This is a realistic RP server, so a microphone is required to roleplay in LucidRP. If your microphone is broken or not working, you must leave the city and return when it is fixed, as we do not support text-based roleplay.
We do not allow any illegal activities 30 minutes prior to a server restart. If you are caught doing illegal activity 30 minutes prior to a server restart it is a bannable offense.
Combat Logging is a term that refers to exiting the server via disconnect, F8, or crashing after being “downed”. Essentially, it is when a user exits the server after being downed to avoid losing whatever items are on them. This is strictly against the rules and is a bannable offense. If your computer crashes or you are downed by a bug, you must open a general support ticket informing staff of the situation before continuing the scene.
Example: Speeding around cops harassing them while honking over and over just to get their attention for a chase because you are bored.
It is restricted to breaking people out of prison from the yard, or any other prison break. As of now, it is unacceptable. You are not to enter the prison yard either, whether or not you extract them.
This will be due to change with new ideas and possibly a new prison break system coming, BUT as it stands now, prison break from the yard will be prohibited.
Prison Bus transportation ambush is ONLY acceptable when PD approves of a transportation to the arresting criminal(s). The arresting criminals will get a phone call to communicate the transport. No more than 6 people can interfere with the bus and be a part of this prison break.
Kidnapping on-duty EMS is not allowed. Killing EMS is allowed, but only if the RP warrants it over time and is not 0-60. If you do want to have a scene with EMS that warrants them being killed, you need to ensure that they are not the only one on duty before you go ahead with your scene.
When it comes to interacting with locals during conflict or illegal jobs, such as guards or local gang members, you are not permitted to use a vehicle to run them over in attempts to avoid police notifications or interactions.
Officer’s being reprimanded for a scene, taken hostage or been kidnapped can have weapons stolen from them only in very specific and rare situations. The guns can be taken by /robclosest with the officer’s hands up. This is for the scene and situational. This is for the purpose of the scene NOT to just steal weapons of officers just because you want their gun. You are not permitted to walk up to a LEO and force them to hand over or rob them of their weapons. Robbing PD just for the sake of taking their weapons is a bannable offense. Robbing a LEO in a scene wheras the scene was not originated by robbing an officer is fine if it makes sense for the scene and is situational. However, the consequences of getting caught with the police issued weapon is extreme and should deter you from doing so anyways.
If you play an officer, you don’t need to feel forced to hand over weapons OR if you feel they are only purely doing this to steal weapons this is NOT ALLOWED. You can do “/me give weapons”. If you do this, then you MUST abide by having no weapons even though the physical items are in your pockets.
If cops are being held up purely for weapons and item gaining, this is power gaming and is a bannable offense. Put in a ticket and staff can address the issue.
The same rule applies for Gruppe 6/Merrywether.
Police officers are completely restricted from selling/giving away any police issued guns, ammo or armor to civilians. Being caught selling police issued weapons, ammo or armor to someone may result in a ban. This does NOT include melee items or tasers, only the illegal items such as weapons, armor, ammo, etc. Keep in mind that selling melee items or tasers can result in police disciplinary action if caught, but it is not a server rule.
Police are not permitted to leave weapons or armor in trunks just for the sole purpose of leaving their vehicle in an area for someone to purposely get into.
The same rule applies for Gruppe 6/Merrywether.
Fake Robberies are not allowed. You may not start a robbery then leave without justifiable reason. If the aim is purely to avoid police interaction, this is considered FailRP and Ignoring RP.
You are not allowed to steal ANY player-used EMS emergency vehicles such as ambulances, helicopters, or fire trucks. If you find a local ambulance or fire truck, you may use it for a scene, but do not use it if it produces toxicity.
You can /carry in a car with the following rules:
2 seater/2 door = 4 people max
4 seater/4 door = 5 people max
Bikes = 2 people max (you can /carry if you are the only one on the bike)
Only one person is allowed to be stuffed in the trunk.
If any roleplayer is inactive from the city for 2-3 months without notice, their properties and imported cars may be repossessed and either resold back to the company, or auctioned to the public due to “unpaid taxes”. This is to ensure that any unused properties or import cars are not going to waste and are going back into the active members of the community. If a roleplayer will be inactive due to valid reasons and does intend to come back, you are to inform Staff by creating a General Support ticket so the items are not repossessed.
