  • A working, quality mic is required.

  • Multi-character limitations: You are not allowed to have multiple characters in the same storyline I.E. a Cop that is a detective and a cop that is a patrol agent. You are not allowed to have a first responder/lawyer character and an allowlisted gang character.

  • Player Reports and Bans:
  • Players reports can be posted in Discord by opening a ticket. Staff will still need the ID of the person who is suspected of breaking a guideline or rule. Staff will also actively enforce community rules and guidelines without reports.
  • In order for staff to enforce rules without reports, we will need the players ID, which can be gotten by pressing Home. Make a ticket in Discord with a short message and any pertinent evidence to relay the issue.

  • In-Game Information:Stay in-character at all times
  • In the event there’s an issue, completely role-play out the scenario and player report if needed. Do not break character / inform the player they are breaking a rule in-game.
  • Do not do actions in game to bait others into breaking roleplay.

    Server Restarts
  • Roleplay shouldn’t be stopped or become less serious before a restart; it should continue as normal.

    Loot boxing
  • Looting any player without much roleplay presented for them is prohibited.

    Metagaming
  • Purposely using or relaying information that your character did not learn in-game (Twitch Chats and Discord Channels included) to shape in-game roleplay.

    Powergaming / Fail RP
  • Using means not actually in-game to gain an advantage or not attempting to fit in to the world in a sensible way:
  • Talking/Organizing/Calling out locations while downed.
  • Finding the quickest way to make money, rather than roleplaying around the mechanic.
  • Avoiding the use of “Put in vehicle” command. Escorting people while in vehicles.
  • The use of /me and /notes should be used as much as possible to help aid your scenarios.
  • Driving at unrealistic speeds with no character reason over and over.
  • Government employees not obeying road laws.

    Random Death Match (RDM) & Vehicle Death Match (VDM)
  • Attacking another player/group without any story/roleplay leading up to it.
  • Attacking another player/group using a Vehicle with the intent to kill/knock them out without valid reasoning or initiation.
  • Speed (100+) attacking other vehicles (Ramming).

    New Life Rule (NLR)
  • If you are downed and respawn at the hospital your character forgets the immediate events leading up to being downed in the current scenario. You may not respawn if you’ve been advised that police or EMS is on the way to your scene.
  • You must try and contact medical help of some sort while incapacitated.

    Multiple Characters (from the same player) in one gang/group
  • This is not allowed. In general, try to avoid creating multiple characters involved in the same story/scenarios and could use the same information to push their goals.

    Not Valuing Life (NVL) • Not realistically fearing for your life when you are threatened with weapons or severe harm from other means. • Having non-spontaneous shoot outs at PD or hospital is not allowed. • Antagonizing gangs/police or armed individuals for no character reason. • Players should not be inserting themselves into ongoing situations or shootouts, between two groups or one group and the police.

    Criminal Activities
  • Criminal activities are soft limited. This means that as long as your engagement is reasonable and you don’t break any other rules, you shouldn’t have an issue. For example, you can’t leverage six(6) people to rob a convenience store.
  • Relaying information to or between characters (lookouts, radio communications) counts you as part of that scenario.
  • Choosing shooters/grinders over roleplayers is not acceptable.
  • Whenever characters are brought into police custody and a second group of four is formed to attempt a prison break or transport break, that second group is not allowed to intervene until the prison transport begins. Doing so with small weapons or without a well-made plan is also NVL.
  • You are not allowed to smuggle items into jail unless you are participating in a jailbreak.

  • Basic Decency & Respect:
  • At BayCity, we realize we have a duty to protect all members of our community regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, etc.
  • We strive to create a community that promotes a welcoming atmosphere to all members and that its members can be proud to say they are a part of.
  • BayCity takes a hard stance against any derogatory terms or actions against its members.
  • We will enforce a strict code of conduct within our community and act on items that are distasteful, for example: sexual harassment, excessive name calling or shaming, disrespectful attacks a on personal level, etc.
  • At the end of the day, we are all here to enjoy a world outside of the one we live in. We are here to escape to a world where we can create a new life with amazing experiences.
  • Simply put, respect one another; have justification and reasoning for your actions. Simply saying “it’s my character” will not be considered a valid response.
  • Staff is always here to help with any matters or issues that arise no matter how big or small.
  • We are all the BayCity Community.
