Hello, and welcome to Reborn Roleplay. We look forward to seeing you in-game, but we need to let you know the rules!
Please read them, print them, whatever you need to do, so you can enjoy the best gameplay without having to look over your shoulder.
Again, thank you for choosing Reborn Roleplay as your Home.
The Ban System
Whilst some actions will earn a permanent ban, other rules can be broken by mistake or lack of knowledge.
Our ban system is designed to allow people to learn from their mistakes, but those that abuse the system will be removed.
The System is as follows;
Firstly there will be a Kick/Warning/Ban
This could be a short ban to ensure you exit our game servers, however, it will be removed once the situation has been resolved.
1-day ban - non-appealable (minor offence)
2-day ban - non-appealable (minor offence)
7-day ban - Appealable after 48 hours
1-month ban - Appealable after 7 days
6-month ban - Appealable after 1 month
Permanent ban - Appealable after 3 months
Community Ban - Appealable after 6 months
If you’ve just had a month ban, and then accidentally drive over someone, it does not instantly mean you’ll receive a 6-month ban.
We do take into account all the evidence, perspectives and information to hand before issuing long-term bans.
We’ll be open to talking about your ban or working out another method of “punishment” for the mean time, BUT that does not mean spam the staff member that issued your ban, talking to you about your ban is all depending on your attitude, a single message of “sorry to bother you, I have been banned by yourself and I would like to discuss it.” will suffice, they may not instantly reply but just be patient.
If you get banned for something, serve out your ban or appeal it then are banned again for the same thing within a 1 month period then a 1-month non-appealable ban will be issued.
If on your returning visit you commit the same offence again within 1 month a 6-month non-appealable ban will be issued, then on the return you commit the same offence you will be permanently removed from the community.
Like stated our system is designed so people can learn from their mistakes to that end if you remain ban free for 6 months all previous bans will be removed from your record apart from duping/exploiting/hacking as these are a permanent record.
These rules are subject to change and a changelog will be located inside this forum:
We wish you all the best gaming within our community! Remember, the rules are here to make everyone's game fun, not to make life difficult.

1.2 Microphone Only!
This is a “microphone only” server, typing is only used for out-of-character (OOC) information!.
Going AFK is sometimes required, however, if you need to leave for longer than 10 minutes, please do ensure to log out!. If we notice you’re AFK, we will kick you.
1.4 Offensive Names.
Any offensive player or gang names will result in a temporary ban until you, or we, have changed it.
Trolling is a big “no no”, respect people's roleplay, If you are caught trolling, you will receive a ban. Examples of trolling are; soundboards and/or voice changes, running around police in circles, shouting “piggy piggy piggy”, you get the idea.
1.6 RESERVED FOR PEOPLE WE DON'T LIKE AND USED TO COVER WHATEVER WE WANT/SO WE CAN BAN PEOPLE EVEN IF WE ARE WRONG. (jk, inside joke)
1.7 Traffic Collisions
If you are involved in a road traffic accident with another car, you are not permitted to rob/kill/arrest each other, this extends to gang members/other police, you can not get 1 cop/gang member to “accidentally” hit a car then another arrests/rob them. (repair continue the chase).
*Additional* If a Police witnesses or is a part of an RTC that was caused by dangerous driving, They can proceed with legal procedures. Using this as baiting will be considered VDM/poor RP.
1.8 Threats to ban/report.
Threats to ban in Sidechat/Directchat/PM is against the rules. If you believe a rule has been broken then request the player to join Teamspeak and try to resolve. Threatening to ban will result in a Ban.
The act of teleporting such as Logging out and logging back in to gain an in-game advantage or respawning to get to a different town faster are both subject to disciplinary!
Please message a member of staff on TeamSpeak if you need to log out and log back in for any reason to ensure you are not flagged for teleporting.
1.10 Stick to the rules!
If someone else is breaking rules, it doesn’t give you permission to break them in return
Example, If a car VDM’s you in the Kavala green zone, it doesn’t give you permission to shoot them. Speak to the person on TeamSpeak or contact a staff member. if you can not resolve it, report it.
2.1 We are an adult community, people swear and say derogatory comments, we understand it is part of the culture (sadly), so you will not be punished for slip of the tongue mistakes, but just respect each other and apologise if you offend anyone. What will not be tolerated is direct insults/attacks towards any member of our community that includes in-game, on TeamSpeak or the forum, this includes Racism and Homophobia.
No direct discrimination of any kind will be tolerated.
Not everyone has the same level of roleplay, but all attempts should be made to roleplay before engaging in combat. This can be down to a Staff Members’ interpretation of the incident.
If it is deemed not sufficient roleplay, ie “put your hands up or die 3,2…” *shot dead*. We will try to resolve it beforehand but disciplinary action may be taken.
3.1 Always Roleplay.
On our server, you are required to stay in roleplay at all times, breaking roleplay ruins the fun for everyone in that situation, and even those just listening.
If you need to talk to the person outside of roleplay, wait until the situation is over, then contact them politely on Teamspeak or via side chat and just say “do you mind if we have a chat about what just happened”.
If you are quite angry, we suggest taking a small break before contacting them to calm down so the resolution is more civilised, there is always members of staff available to assist you with a resolution if needed. Demanding “TS NOW!” will probably get you kicked.
3.2 Adult themed roleplay.
Adult themed roleplay happens, it is an adult community, however, if you find it uncomfortable you need to type in side chat to let your “captors” know. The captors are to cease their actions on this request, but if they continue, you are permitted to exit the game. No punishments will be awarded for leaving, but try to gather any evidence you can.
3.3 Combat Reviving.
Combat reviving is not permitted - Anyone that is caught combat reviving will face removal from all white-listed factions.
We understand that in some circumstances people are not aware if combat is ongoing when they go to revive a player. If you see someone reviving during combat you are to issue a warning shot, if they still proceed to revive the player, you are permitted to shoot the reviving player, regardless of faction.
This does not mean you can shoot a medic for reviving someone you do not want reviving, you have words use them.
3.4 Hobo Initiations.
Sending someone to start a fight whom has nothing to lose is not permitted , so any getting your mate to drop all his stuff to go initiate, This does not mean you have to be fully geared with weapons out, a hobo with a weapon or a fully geared rebel with no weapon should be the minimum standards, use your common sense.
3.5 Abusing the Green zone
You are not permitted to store your vehicles in the green zone while you are selling items other than apples and peaches.
3.6 Friendly Hostage.
You are not permitted to take one of your own gang members hostage.
3.7 Fake Theft Reports.
You are not permitted to report your own vehicle stolen unless it has actually been stolen.
3.8 Active Firefight
If you are driving around or running around in the middle of a gunfight, ie spotting police or rebels, if you get killed this is not RDM, this does not mean you can just shoot anyone in the area, if a gunfight is ongoing ie there is actual shooting you need to make an attempt to leave, if they are not leaving you can shoot them, if you do not want to die, leave the area (value your life).
3.9 Spin to win.
If someone is pointing a gun at you telling you to do something do not try and 180 them, this is “failRP”, give up your stuff and actually roleplay.
3.10 VTOL Aircraft
VTOLs are not permitted to enter city airspace, they are loud and ruin Roleplay.
3.11 Helicopter Trolling
Helicopters are not permitted to fly low around cities keep them above 300m unless landing or taking off, be warned, we’ll delete the chopper and you’ll fall to the floor.
3.12 Backpacking Weapons
If you put a weapon in a backpack/vehicle or holstering a pistol during a gunfight you are no longer allowed to take part in that fight, you are to leave the situation, this does not mean you will not be shot, if you were seen backpacking a weapon, you are still a threat and can be fired upon, you are to leave the situation as fast as possible or re-initiate, if you wish to stay in the fight, DO NOT put your weapon in your backpack either keep it in your hands or holster it (unless pistol then it stays out).
3.13 Life Server!
This is a Life Server, although we can respawn and keep our licenses and money, treat each life like it's the only one you've got... This means no Kamikaze! Respect your life and Value your life
Please note, sometimes fighting for your life is valuing your life.
3.14 Poor RP
Poor roleplay is when the standard of RP was not up to the level we require on our server, each situation will be dealt with separately, and we will not say you can say x, y and z and that's good enough, as then that's all that would be said, but to try and put it in context here is an example:
Hands up or you will be shot 3..2..1..dead = poor
Hands up or you will be shot 3..2..1...cmon buddy don't make me shoot you....3..2..1..dead = not poor
3.15 Negotiator Violations
You are not permitted to take unarmed Police negotiators hostage or kill them in any situation, but if they are armed (including taser) they are not a negotiator.
You are not permitted to rob the Unarmed Police Negotiator you can search him to confirm he is unarmed, but you are not to touch his vehicle.
3.16 Warning Shots
You can issue warning shots to air vehicles with tracer rounds. If they fail to leave you can shoot them down.
For police, this must be aimed to disable the air vehicle, this does not include killing the pilot unless they’re confirmed to be hostile, or all attempts to disable the vehicle have failed.
3.17 Co-pilot exploit
You can not use the co-pilot exploit to leave the engine on. If you exit the helicopter and there is nobody in the pilot/co-pilot seat the engine is to be turned off.
Metagaming is the use of any information in-game that your character would not normally have. To that end, we have some basic rules to help you.
You are not permitted to use someone's name without them giving it to you.
(police can check driving licenses as long as it is within roleplay).
4.2 Direct Communications
If you are restrained/zip-tied/detained, you are STILL permitted to talk to your friends on Teamspeak, however, you must broadcast all your “transmissions” in direct chat.
4.3 Unconscious Communications
If you are tased or knocked out, you are not permitted to speak on Teamspeak until the animation is over.
4.4 Immersion Restraints
If you’ve been released, but are still in proximity to those not in communication with you, it is still requested that you continue “transmissions” in direct chat.
Telepathy would be nice, but ruins immersion.
4.5 Radio Confiscation.
If your “captives” state they are taking your radio, phone or communications device, you must mute your TeamSpeak.
(You still have your GPS unless they physically remove it).
4.6 Name Grabbing
You are not permitted to use in-game mechanics to find out who someone is.
ie. Tilda key, scroll wheel, give item system, Key Chain, etc.
4.7 New life vehicles
If you have died within roleplay, you can not use Keychain to locate your vehicle.
This doesn’t apply if a friend has keys and did not die.
4.8 Stream sniping
Stream sniping is a big no no, using any information you see from a stream is classed as metagaming and will result in a ban.
4.9 Police Names
You can only identify police wearing their standard uniform by their rank unless their name is given.
4.10 Power gaming
Power gaming is basically creating impossible situations that are outside the mechanics of the game. For example, do not sit in the back of someone’s car and tell the driver “I have got a gun to your head”, this ruins the whole fun of the situation, “I have rigged the building to explode”, “I smell drugs!”.
4.11 Unlawful Searches
Police can not just randomly search a vehicle without just cause to do so.
New life rule
A new life means you have no memories of your previous life and no information on what you were previously doing. You still remember your gang members, but anyone outside of the gang you no longer know.
5.1 You are NOT allowed to return to a situation you were previously involved in.
5.2 You cannot remember how you died.
5.3 You cannot remember anyone’s name other than those in your gang.
5.4 You must remain 1km from where you died for 15 minutes.
5.5 You do not remember the location of your vehicle, and cannot use the Key distance to locate it.
A new life starts when:
You have died within roleplay.
You have died in a road traffic incident.
A new life does not start when:
The server resets.
You log out and come back online.
You have been VDM’d (see VDM rule)
You have been RDM’d (see RDM rule)
RDM: Random Deathmatch
6.1 RDM is when someone kills another without any form of roleplay, ie someone shoots someone without a single word said.
6.2 In the event of a report, claims of "keeping eyes" will always require video footage to prove you did. Failure to provide evidence will be classed as RDM.
If you have been killed by RDM, NLR does not take effect.
It is not RDM if the person was role playing before shooting no matter how minimal the RP was, that would be considered Poor RP (see Roleplay Standards rule).
VDM: Vehicle Deathmatch
VDM is when someone intentionally uses their vehicle as a weapon, whether it be vehicle to vehicle or vehicle to the player. There is an anti-VDM script on our server, but anyone found abusing this to rob people will be treated as VDM.
6.4 Helicopter blocking
Using a helicopter to prevent someone from taking off is using your vehicle as a weapon and is no longer permitted, this is classed as VDM.
6.5 VDM Advantage
If you accidentally run someone over during combat you must let them get back up and give me them time to run away this extends to your gang members, they can not shoot someone you just “accidentally” VDM’d.
Times when VDM IS allowed:
When it is between Hunters, Ifrits and Striders.
When a person is stood in-front of a vehicle pointing a weapon at the driver, blocking any sort of escape, but all attempts must be made to avoid a collision. Note, you are not permitted to get out and kill the person, you are to leave the area.
If there are unmanned vehicles blocking an entrance, if the cars blow up, this is your own fault. If you kill anyone due to it exploding you are to give full compensation.
The Police are the core of Altis Life, to this end we expect high levels of Roleplay at all times, these rules are server rules, not police rules.
7.1 Police Distribution

If you find any sort of in-game exploit, you are to immediately inform a member of staff, do not post it on the forum. If you are caught abusing any form of exploit you will be treated the same as a cheater or hacker.
You will not be banned for talking about other communities, nor will you be banned for giving out your personal TeamSpeak address to friends, however, you will be banned for the following:
Recruiting people for another community using our services.
Messaging or advertising any other TS or community in-game either with voice or text.

Also known as the Safe Zone.
10.3 This is a safe area marked in Green. No killing, shooting or crime of any kind is permitted in this zone (apart from speeding).
10.4 You cannot retreat to green zones for safety. Police are still allowed to use non-lethal force in this area but should provide roleplay prior to engaging! Who doesn’t love a good foot chase?
Also known as the Police Zone.
10.5 This area is marked in Blue. Police are permitted to retreat to a blue zone to escape criminals as this is where they have mass numbers (within RP), rebels are not permitted to chase them in there to get their friends back, same as the green zone no killing, shooting or crime of any kind is permitted in this zone.
10.6 Any officers found abusing the blue zone will be banned for exploiting.
e.g. running in and out for a gun fight

This should allow a more realistic police force size to defend the HQ.
Police are not allowed to respawn in the blue zone during the assault.
11.1 Logging off during any form of RP is not permitted, you are to wait until the situation is fully over before exiting the server, that includes waiting for a revive, disagreeing with a roleplay situation, to try and save gear, etc

The area around the HM/Lockup robbery is a very dangerous place, This is a Cops vs Robbers area. Whilst crossfire can happen. Please note, shooting unarmed and uninvolved people is still RDM, however, if they're armed, it's a matter of protection.
This does not mean you can shoot officers that are just driving towards or from the compounds if they are involved shoot them, do not shoot them 1km away when they are just driving up the road.
12.7 HM/Lockup Interference
No external person/gang is allowed to interfere with the HM/Lockup Robbery until the Vehicles have left the compound, the robbery is classed as started from the following points:
HM - Once the first door is being broken into.
Lockup - Once the code cracker has been placed.
If anyone from a different gang enters after this point the first gang is to clearly tell them to leave as the robbery is in progress (do not try to rob them then it is your own fault, and they can engage you). If they fail to leave when they have clearly been told then you are to try and resolve it with them and report it if necessary.
12.8 Gangbase Gold
Gold can not be taken to gang bases, either sell it or take it to a house, but you do not retreat to a gang base.
12.9 Lockup RDM
