  1. New Player Guide Welcome to NoLimits Roleplay! Make sure to read all of our rules that can be found here: NoLimits Roleplay Rules Please take the time to read over this guide, as it will help you set up everything to get started in the city! Be sure to join our Discord for your whitelist role, and to stay up to date on change logs, and community events. We also did a comedic “Good vs Bad RP” video you can check out. Registering a Character When you first join the server, you will be prompted to register your character. Please choose an appropriate, realistic name, and date of birth that matches your character’s story. Once completed you will be spawned at the airport to customize your character. Make sure you cycle through the “tshirt” and “arms” options to make sure you have no poking through clothing or your arms showing through in some places. If you don’t see clothes at first, give it a little bit of time to download as we have custom clothing in our server and it will fix itself. If you accidentally back out of character creation, or you decide something just doesn’t look quite right, head to the “lips” (plastic surgeon) on your map to fix it. Alternatively, you can do /report and ask for the character creation menu again, or you could F8 Quit, relog and delete the character and start over. You can have a maximum of 5 characters, each have their own unique items, inventories, cash, jobs, assets, etc. Licenses & Jobs It’s highly suggested to get a drivers license asap. You don’t want to get a ticket your first day! The DMV is located on the map as “DMV” with a white driving wheel marker. The driving school starts with a written test, then a driving test. There are 3 different driving licenses you can obtain: regular driver’s license, motorcycle, and CDL. You can also obtain your weapons license at MRPD, ask around in character for more info. Once you get the proper license, find a job that is perfect for you! You will earn your salary (paycheck) every 20 minutes in game. After being around for some time and getting the hang of things, you can choose to apply for some of our whitelisted jobs such as PD, EMS, mechanic, lawyer/judge, or any of our other businesses. Whitelisted Jobs: Application for EMS Application for Police Application for Lawyer/Judge Note: You are never limited to a job that is a base game mechanic, be creative and come up with anything you want. If you want to deliver lettuce to restaurants, do it! You’re only limited to your imagination. Click here to see our more in depth job guide. Apartments Apartments will charge you 3% of the original cost, daily. You need to have this money in your bank, not in your pockets. It will charge you regardless if you are online or offline. If you fail to keep enough money in your bank to cover your apartment costs, you will not only lose your place to live, but also everything in it. These items will not be refunded because of eviction. Garages and Cars You can purchase vehicles up to $100k from the PDM dealership. (You can also purchase donator cars here too.) This dealership is good for starter cars, but typically isn’t manned by anyone, and is with a game mechanic to view, then purchase the car. We also have a dealership called Luxury Autos that sells all cars (including those at PDM, and donator cars). This is a player owned dealership! We have tons of custom cars, and a lot of GTA V base cars as well. We add cars very frequently to the server. Going to this dealership provides a great optimal roleplay experience. Use the favorites option in your phone to reach out to someone if no one seems to be around and they will be in touch! Public garages are located all over the map. You also have the ability to have one at your apartment or house, if you own one. At the garages, you will see a red circle (where you store your car), a green circle (where you take out your car) and a yellow circle (where your car is sent if impounded). You can only store/pull out cars that you purchase in your garage, unless you share a house with someone. Cars are impounded if: you leave your car in a non-populated area and run out of the area (car normally just disappears - FiveM/GTA thing, we can't change that). Police can also impound a car if you are sent to jail, or one of the towing companies may impound your car or take it back to their lot for you to pick up for a small fee. Players can also steal your car if it is unlocked. If your car is in your garage or impound, that means it is somewhere out in the city. If you do not put your car in the garage, you will have to pay a fee at the yellow impound circles. They do not auto restore anymore on server restarts. You can sell cars back behind the dealership (you lose money obviously) or you can sell them to other players permanently using the /givecartitle command (must be next to the car that you own, the person must be right by you and the car as well). This command moves the car from your name to the other player's name, so use it wisely. You are actually giving the car to that player for good. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! - You cannot do this with donator cars. Large Weapons Taking big weapons out from your buttcheeks is considered fail RP. If you have a weapon larger than a handgun, please walk up to your car to 'retrieve' it or do a /me takes gun out of bag. The same standards are held for officers and will be treated equally when reported. Players Menu The following information is how to read the /players menu. When using /players it will show you how many cops, ems, and mechanics are on duty. For Cops: For EMS/Mechanics: None = 0 Low = 1-3 Medium = 4-6 High = 7+ None = 0 Low = 1-2 Medium = 3-5 High = 6+ How to Roleplay We are a serious roleplay server that welcomes new players. We do not care if you have 0 RP experience, as long as you are willing to learn and try, then you are fine. However, we are not going to put up with people who are trolling, or who have no intent to actually roleplay. We want our community members to always be in character and do as their character would. The biggest thing to realize is IC (In-Character) vs OOC (Out of Character). Do not take anything out of character. If someone has some "beef" with your character in-game, RP it out. There is no reason to get offended OOC and bring it into Discord or other forms of out of game communication. Along with that, do not bring OOC, In Character. If your character didn't see it with their own eyes, or gets told the information verbally or via text/twitter, then your character knows nothing about it, this is metagaming if you use it in character. You will know a ton of things OOC, but you cannot use that information IC because your character hasn't been given that information. Keeping IC vs. OOC separate is something every roleplayer has to do. Examples of roleplay reactions: You are jaywalking and all a sudden a car hits you going 40 MPH. You get knocked out by the car. What should you do? You can "call EMS" using your phone (U). When EMS arrives on scene you can verbally talk and tell them what hurts you or you can use /me commands to tell them your injuries. For example: *EMS comes up and checks your pulse and looks for injuries, etc.* You do: /me is unconscious and seems to have gotten hit by a vehicle. Left-arm has a lot of scrape marks and blood. Right leg is twisted weirdly. EMS will then help treat your wounds, you should continue responding to them in /me commands or you can become conscious again and start talking or making sounds of discomfort. You do not always need to roleplay unconscious! Never break character with EMS! You get into a verbal altercation with someone. The person decides to swing at you, punching you right in the face, you fall to the ground. What should you do? -Call EMS. When EMS arrives on scene you can verbally talk or use /me commands depending on what you believe your injuries are. For example: *EMS comes up to you and checks pulse, looks for injuries, etc.* You say: "I was standing over here at Legion square, this man got aggressive and he punched me right in the face, my right eye is really hurting me right now!" EMS would then treat your wounds and make sure you are okay. Continue to respond to EMS. You can also call the police if you wish to press charges against someone. You get shot by someone multiple times. What should you do? When EMS arrives on scene you can verbally talk or use /me commands depending on what you believe your injuries are. For example: *EMS comes up to you and checks pulse, looks for injuries, etc.* You do: /me got shot multiple times, losing blood quickly and has a low pulse. Was shot once in the arm, twice in the right leg. EMS would then treat your injuries and take you to the hospital for treatment. Additional Notes: We are not a cops vs. robbers server. We should all be trying to build up character storylines, we do not want to just start robbing banks or kidnapping cops within our first 24 hours in a new city. Try to make friends and build connections. On our server, we try to avoid gunplay as much as possible. 99% of the time a gun is pulled, it should not be fired, use it as intimidation. Taking someone's life is a big deal, and should be roleplayed as such. We want people to have fun, create a character, and be able to enjoy their time with us. If you need an admin, you can simply to /report [explanation of what happened] and it will be dealt with accordingly. Everyone is here to roleplay and have fun, do not ruin it for others or there will be consequences. Be sure to read the rest of this guide as well as our rules posted on this website! If you ever have any questions, be sure to use the #help-room in discord. Roleplay is a dance - You do something, people respond to it. They do things, you respond to it. Do not be afraid to lose. Losing brings such great roleplay. Nobody ‘wins’ all the time. Not criminals, not cops, nobody wins all the time. Sometimes you’re the windshield, and sometimes you’re the bug. Don’t take things so personally. Letting someone make you look weak, and them look strong in a scenario is ‘taking a loss’ and hopefully roles will be reversed next time. Roleplay should be drawn out, do not try to end a scenario in 5 minutes. Put effort into building the story, dance a little bit with the other person, go back and forth, give in, give out, have fun.

  2. NoLimits Roleplay Rules If you break rules you will be spoken with, which will lead to a warning on your record. More severe rule breaks will be met with a temporary ban or a permanent ban. Temporary bans can not be appealed (only permanent bans). Warnings have no impact on you and are just a documentation that an admin spoke with you. You can check your infractions with /mi in the city. Bannable Offenses Exploiting- If you find a bug or exploit in the server, you should open a ticket in discord and let staff know. This includes, but not limited to macros/auto button pushing. Hacking- Any kind of hacking. (Mod menus, money, etc.) Offensive RP- Roleplaying sexual assault, suicide, terrorist, and pregnancy, etc. is not allowed. Torture RP must be agreed upon by all parties beforehand. This can be a simple /looc. - Practice better bathroom etiquette on your own time. Respect- No racial slurs, politics, homophobic slurs, religious hate etc. Do not call people derogatory slurs because of who they are behind the screen, if a "male" is roleplaying as a "female" do not call them offensive slurs. - Do not have any political or religious activities/names included in your roleplay. Warnable/Temp Ban Offenses Body cam- Unless you're in a car in first person, through a windshield (like an actual dash cam), or have taken out your phone and record in first person, or using the camera prop - your "body cam" will not count, and will be considered metagaming. This information will be completely dismissed if trying to be used in a judicial way, as it will not be a valid format. The only time this footage will be considered: If coming from a police officer (They typically always have body cams) OR if you're using it in a player report. Breaking character- Do not break RP unless spoken to by an admin who is investigating something as an admin. Combat logging/storing- Leaving the server while involved in an active scenario with other players (being arrested, in the hospital, in a traffic stop, etc.) You are also not allowed to store a car in your garage mid pursuit or run into an apartment/home/motel to deposit items mid pursuit. Logging out within 15 minutes of a conflict scenario that you were involved in will be considered combat logging. ERP- Is not allowed. We are going to draw the line at the point where clothes start coming off and graphic sexual acts become a thing. Hand holding, kissing, hugging, dirty dancing are all fine. FailRP- Using actions that can be unrealistic to real life or disturb RP experience of other people. Multiple rules fall under this. Green zones- All hospitals are green zones. This includes, for example Pillbox's sidewalk, but not across the street. (Zero combat or guns allowed in these areas.) Large groups- You should not be in a group that is larger than 6 people in conflict. If conflict occurs, communication must be had to decide who will leave. Metagaming- Using knowledge gained outside of in-game RP. In our community, you are NOT allowed to use third-party communications at all. Do not go into other players streams while you are actively in the server. New Life Rule- If you are downed and use /respawn you must not remember the scenarios leading up to that ‘down’. You can try to piece things together by asking around and gaining knowledge with clues, but your character will not remember it without proper investigation, and you should RP as such. Both parties should try to avoid each other for at least 60 minutes prior to engaging in any further interaction. If you get injured and down, you should focus on "healing" and "getting better" not focus on getting revenge. RP out your injuries. You may not use /respawn if EMS/PD is on the way to rescue you, or if you are in the middle of a scenario. Note: Being in a gang war is no exception to this rule. Powergaming- Using in-game or RP mechanics to alter a situation to benefit your character. RP every situation to the fullest and do not ruin the experience of others. Do not corner people in RP and force them to do stuff with no other choices. Character must be human. No super-human strengths. RDM/VDM- Random/Vehicle deathmatch. You must interact with players and not kill others without a reason or any in character exchange. Before attacking another player, you MUST have an appropriate reason for doing so, and have engaged them in RP through verbal communication on site. No hitman RP. Do not kill or down players before a server restart as a way to "mess around." Robbing people- You can not force someone to /givecartitle, force them to go to their apartment/house or to an ATM to take more of their items/money. You can only rob what that person has on them at the time. Robbing/taking hostage of cops- When attempting to steal ARs from cops, you are only allowed to do so if you have had sight of that weapon (in their hand) during that scenario. Once you lose sight of it (in a chase/you lose sight of the police officer), that resets your ability to steal it. If you don't see it, you cannot take it. - There must be a minimum of "medium" cop presence on duty for you to take one of them. You should not take cops or rob them from their police issued items if they are short staffed. Twitter Accounts- You should only make fake twitter accounts if they have an RP purpose that benefit others besides yourself. You should not make fake twitter accounts to hide behind an anonymous screen for a reason that does not benefit the other party. Ideally you should only have 3 twitter accounts MAX per character (including businesses). You should not log into your other characters twitter accounts either. I.E Stacy should not log into Luna's twitter account. Valuing lives- You must value your life as if it were your last. If someone is holding you at gun point, you must comply. If you are outnumbered, you must comply with their demands. - If a person values their own life and are following all orders, you may not kill them. If they are not cooperative, you do not have to value their life. Vigilante RP- Please do not go around as a vigilante and trying to save other players from players. (Civs from cops, cops from civs etc.) Guidelines Discords- If you created another discord for either a business, gang or anything else that is server related, you must invite a Senior Admin+ to that discord and give them full permission to view every room. This rule applies to Admins who own a NLRP discord as well, the Senior Admin invited must be someone non-affiliated to that group. Firestarting- Do not post stuff in ooc places that will intentionally start arguments or hostility towards or between other community members. This includes streams, and Discord. Music- Copyrighted music can be played at events (VU, Clubs, Parties, Gatherings etc.) as long as it is advertised that it will be played. We do not want streamers to have to worry about if music will be played at an event, thus advertising or permission from everyone at the gathering should be done. This will give streamers the option to know if they should show up in RP or not. This can be as simple as "Music will be played at the event" in your advertisements or utilizing scenes such as "DJ playing music" etc. You can also post on the calendar on this website that music will be played at your event. If you want to have a private party and play music, that is fine, just ask if everyone is okay with music being played. - Play music where it make sense. We don't need to hear the music coming out of your car. Permadeath- You decide when your character is actually dead. If you /me no pulse, dead - you are to delete that character. No one can powergame you into killing off your character. Using /me- /me commands do not describe thoughts. If someone does a /me command to take your phone, tracker, radio, or weapon, you must not use those items until they are returned to you. You can NOT lie using /me commands. You must cooperate, even if it "self incriminates." Gang Rules - 10-man limit per gang, normal 6 per criminal activity applies. - Gang wars should be 1 v 1 between two parties, not multiple parties - Unless the RP calls for it, and all parties agree. - Only gang leaders of gangs can declare/accept war. - There must be a purpose, and resolution for war. - War rules must be declared in the #gang-war-term room in discord (this is to help admins in any case of reports during a gang war) If you are a gang leader, open a ticket for your role. - Limit your turf to holding a block/area, you don’t own and run the area around maze bank area, make it make sense. Issues that are not listed in our rules will be up to staff discretion - staff have the final word in anything, do not disrespect them or argue. Expect more to be added or changed here. We will notify everyone if significant changes happen to our rules. If you have any questions or concerns about the rules you can open a ticket in our discord. This is the guideline that we as Admins follow. We make exceptions and will vote on permabans for situations in which a player is making multiple rule breaks in a short amount of time, or based on the severity of the situation and what was said/done. At the end of the day, everything is voted on based on this warning chart by Admins and Admin discretion is used in situations where immediate action is needed.
