    In logs, GMs will be able to see when we initiated. You will see me frisk a man with a boonie hat in chat logs and then see the time between that and the kills. I called you a liar because in TeamSpeak when I spoke to you, you said that you whitnessed the initiation, that is all. There is a difference between being mistaken and being a liar. I've been nothing but forthcoming in the situation. What I witnessed is what I witnessed, and I don't appreciate being called a liar. Lying implies I was knowingly being untruthful. I posted what I have as far as my perspective, and explained my perspective. I don't understand why you, the GM in question were the one to make contact with me on TS, when it should have been a staff member who isn't involved in the situation.

    I hit record as soon as I came upon the situation, and what I had heard was the confiscation of guns, and the stripping of ammo. From my perspective, it wasn't at all a lie. And I don't appreciate being called a liar in this situation. What I have is my perspective. Obviously I was late to the situation, but from what I was able to make out, I had just arrived. As far as KoS rights, it has always been my understanding that you -CAN- act as a Good Samaritan. I apologize to the player I killed by mistake, and I'll take whatever punishment I earned for killing him, but as far as the bandits, I don't feel as though I'd done wrong.

    Hey guys The ingame chat going on is a little drown out by my mic, but I stumbled on the situation as people were being taken hostage. I can see watching back that the first shot was to someone being handcuffed, and not the person handcuffing, that's entirely my bad. From my perspective, I was watching a robbery take place, and decided to try and help the victims. I even called out for the player (Who I did recognize as a hostage) to run, repeatedly.
  4. Running up to players and checking them for a pulse to get their name, then tabbing out to check Teamspeak to see who they are, who they are with, who they are on coms with, and how many of them there are... Is... M E T A G A M I N G In the brief half week that I've been back on dayzrp, I already can't tell you how many times I've seen this happen throughout various groups. Using names that haven't been learned through roleplay, or gaining names through game mechannics for the purpose of sharking someone's teamspeak channel, is... M E T A G A M I N G Finding someone's in game name, and then sending them a poke warning of what group you're with as a warning... is M E T A G A M I N G

Server and location: S2 Lopateno Approximate time and date of the incident (SERVER TIME): 04:25 Daytime or Night-time: Night Your in game name: Jedediah Names of allies involved: N/A Name/Skin of suspect/s: N/A Suspects weapon/s: N/A Friendly/Enemy vehicles involved (if any): N/A Additional evidence? (video/screenshot): N/A Detailed description of the events: I was standing in the large warehouse in Lopatino, minding my own business, completely alone and waiting to meet with friends. I hadn't been in the town for more than 10 minutes, and not in the building for more than 2, when suddenly my screen went black, and it said that I was dead.
  6. Thanks for the great run, guys.

    Mistyped my guid! Help! //Terra: GUID reset. Please re-enter it
  8. It -is- required to read Which pretty much explains your first few accidental bans.
  9. That would take quite a lot of work. You can look at the rules as they are right now, if you read closely, you can find Rolle still uses codes in the server rules to be used on new player applications, I don't see why this couldn't be used for DayzRP SA as well.
  10. Alright, lets get some ideas out for standalone rules. I've highlighted in green the rules that can still apply in the current state of the game. (Obviously we can't make roadblocks yet.) ------------------------------------------------------------- Abbreviations: RP - Role Playing IC - In Character OOC - Out Of Character GM - Game Master NLR - New Life Rule, death of your character removes any previous memory, knowledge (in relation to event that lead to your death), gear and revenge rights your character had. KoS - Kill on Sight, killing a person without a valid RP reason or without making proper contact. RDM - Random Deathmatch, killing a person AFTER making contact but with improper initiation, when it wasn't necessary etc. CL - Combat Log, logging off from game to avoid getting killed/hurt/losing gear during a hostile event or avoiding immediate player - player interaction. NEW RULE - new or modified rules are highlighted in green. 1. Be fair and reasonable This rule is very ambiguous, but generally covers all behavior that is unwanted by the staff on the server and forums. This includes but is not limited to hacking, duping, exploiting, ghosting, loot cycling, griefing, trolling, advertising, insulting others OOC, being racist or otherwise unpleasant to fellow players. Treat other players the way you would like to be treated in a role playing environment. Always prioritize roleplay over ruleplay. Examples: Placing tents or stashes underwater, in rocks, buildings or in any other normally not accessible or possible locations is considered an exploit. If you have any doubts about a certain action that may be conflicting with this rule, please ask a Game Master before executing the action. 2. Stay in character This is a roleplaying server; you are required to role play your character at all times. You also need a proper roleplaying name in game - first and last name is required. Read more here. Kidnapping, torture, interrogation, execution, roadblocks, checkpoints, capturing or claiming an area for a clan and similar actions are allowed as long as they are lead in RP manner and do not conflict with other rules. We use a partial New Life Rule (NLR) implementation. When you die you lose memories surrounding the event that led to your death - that means running back to your body after dying is forbidden. However, you keep the knowledge about your clan, friends, enemies and other people that you’ve met before that event. Acquiring information from outside the game which your character wouldn't otherwise have access to is forbidden, just like any other form of metagaming or godmodding. If you change skins or otherwise conceal your identity you immediately lose all previously gained KoS/Revenge rights. Radio communication is only allowed if you are holding a radio item in your inventory. Using any form of distance communication without one is considered metagaming. 3. No Killing on Sight You have to make contact with the target before initiating a hostile action against it. Contact is made when the player has responded to or otherwise acknowledged your message. You must explicitly state your intention to commit a hostile action or inform the victim of the consequences of non-compliance. You must also explicitly state each demand or order before you can harm the victim for non compliance. Do not kill the victim if he is complying or you have no good reason to execute them (grudge, previous hostilities etc). You can take revenge for a hostile action taken against you for 2 hours from the time hostile action was taken, as long as it does not conflict with the other rules. Examples: Always confirm your target; if uncertain about a players identity it's better to hold fire than to risk KoS. You are alone and get robbed by bandits; you try to fight back but get killed. You contact your team mates on TeamSpeak and give them the details about the bandits that killed you. Your team mates find and kill the bandits on sight in revenge. You and your teammates get banned, receive a banstrike and a character reset for metagaming. 4. Clan conflicts All members, including those who are either prospective members or trials must wear their clans XML's at all times. KoS rights can only be transferred between clan members or those who are directly involved. Allies and hired help can be called in as reinforcements, but they must initiate hostilities in the normal way before they can use force. It works the other way as well, the defending clan only has KoS rights on the original attackers, anyone else - like their allies - must be initiated on. 5. Identification You can only identify other players using in character knowledge like: Voice (only if you have spoken to/heard that player before) If the player tells you his name through text chat. You are not allowed to use his in game name from the chat, as this is out of character information provided by the game. Option 'Study Body' which translates to finding some sort of documents with name and clan affiliation (you may use player list to check clan affiliation) of the deceased. Mandatory clan and group skins or badges that show up on certain skins and vehicles. You can use zmmytzkm in your app. XML tag of a player can be used in case the badge is not shown on a skin. You may lie about your identity by typing other name than your actual in-game name in text chat, but the other party has a right to not believe you and try to figure out your real name using any other in character knowledge. 6. Player settlements CR - Camp Representative, a member of the group that are the owners of a settlement. A list of current settlements and their owners can be found here. By entering a settlement you accept all rules enforced by the owners in the settlement thread and enter at your own risk. Failure to follow their rules can be freely punished by CRs. You may be denied entrance to a settlement, disarmed or ordered to leave. You do not receive KoS rights on any players in the settlement because of these or similar hostile actions. Trespassers and attackers can be shot on sight by all settlement inhabitants. The trespassers clan does not receive KoS rights on players inside the settlement, you have to properly initiate a hostile action for that. During an attack on a settlement, the attackers must provide an option for innocent bystanders inside a settlement to surrender or safely leave the area. The commotion inside the settlement (running, hiding) caused by a hostile initiation cannot be a subject to retaliation on the ground of not complying. Attackers only receive KoS rights after those willing to surrender have done so or if settlement habitants clearly are not going to comply by either announcing it in text/voice or by committing a hostile action. Logging in or out within a 100m radius of a settlement centre is considered ghosting when done by non CRs. Examples: If a CR demands that your behaviour in the settlement is inappropriate (for example you refuse to lower your weapon) you can get chloroformed, disarmed, removed from settlement and denied future entry or even killed without initiation if CRs consider it necessary. A settlement gets attacked, you surrender and get ordered to leave the compound by slowly walking out unarmed. You follow all the instructions yet you are killed by the attackers because of an action of someone else in the settlement - RDM punishable offence. 7. Roadblocks Roadblocks are necessary if you are planning on creating a checkpoint or a hold up for vehicles on asphalt roads. You don't need roadblocks on dirt roads and off-road. You must ensure your initiation message reaches the vehicle while it approaches the roadblock. The vehicle will need to slow down/stop to hear and comply with your demands. Roadblock is considered appropriate when it takes at least 75% width of a road. Roadblock may be constructed using vehicles, tank traps, sandbags etc or in game objects. Roadblock should force the car to either go off-road or slow down to less than ~40 km/h. The speed of a vehicle should be slow enough to allow full initiation message to be heard (yelling a single word "Stop" is not a proper initiation). Roadblock needs to be visibly manned during the initiation. During night time the roadblock should be lit up by a flare or a fire during the initiation. 8. Supplemental rules Supplemental rules and rule clarifications can be found on our Wiki. You should be familiar with those clarifications and exceptions before joining our servers. Breaking the rules 1. False reports Creating a formal report is a serious matter as it is publicly accusing other player(s) of breaking the server rules. When creating a formal report please keep in mind to provide all relevant details. False reports containing any of the following will be dealt with swiftly and harshly: - You lie about any details in the report. - You choose to skip any details that may change the outcome of a report. - You create a report to blackmail other players and/or demand your items or vehicles to be given back in exchange for dropping the report. If you are uncertain if any rules have been broken create a Report Discussion thread instead and describe the situation. 2. Punishments GameMaster’s choice of punishment for rule-breaking includes but is not limited to: - In game Bans - Forum warnings - Character reset - Forum or Teamspeak Bans Punishment choice and punishment combinations are decided by the GM handling the report. However, before dealing the punishment, the report needs to be reviewed by at least one additional senior GM or admin. GM's common sense will be used when handling reports. The max warning points is 30. Every in game ban, regardless of severity grants you 10 warning points, so called "Ban Strike". 3 strikes and you're out - permanent bans are issued both in game and on the forums. All warnings, including ban strikes last for a month, afterwards they expire. If an admin decides that you can't or won't roleplay properly, follow the rules, act maturely or otherwise behave inappropriately your whitelist and/or account may be revoked/permanently banned at any time without any warning. --------------------------------------------------------- Ideas. Listing of things that could be considered a hostile action. Force fed rotten fruit or inedible objects/fluids Hand-cuffing Burlap Sacking (kinky) Hostile intent ("I will shoot you if you don't...") Stealing blood Injecting wrong blood type Stealing Needle jabbing Redefining initiations and robberies (To incorporate new emotes) "Put your hands up!" *Middle finger, hands up* *shoots* "He gave me the finger" Is this acceptable? Why or why not? What do you guys see as being conflicting with the current DayzRP Mod rules, when overhauled to the standalone?
  11. Back in my day, DayzRP Mod server had no whitelist, instead it had a password. This, obviously was later replaced with a whitelist, but it served its purpose well while it was around. Would it be possible for us to have a server password, and again hide the server password somewhere in the DayzRP SA rules? >Back in my day. >Server password protected >Password hidden somewhere in the rules page on the forum >Rules page viewable only by registered users >Password changed weekly >Password hiding place changed weekly Certainly this won't change the inability to moderate ingame activity, but surely it would help us regulate the player base to people we at least KNOW have read the rules.
  12. For players who are joining the rp server and hoping to get in on some rp action, or who wish not to be shot on sight by other rp'ers, I suggest we come up with a few ideas to help us identify eachother (Even if we are going to rob eachother eventually.) 1.) No masks? 2.) Hunting backpacks? 3.) Cargo, not camo? 4.) Certain hat? (Beret, baseball cap, beanie) 5.) [your idea here] The idea behind this is simple, since there are no name tags, and no whitelists, the next easiest step for us to identify eachother would be to dress (or avoid) in particular articles. Thoughts?
  13. Hello friends, Jedediah here. Just read through the thread (I've been playing on normal pub servers for my Dayz SA fix lately.) So, reading up on my DayzRP SA, I decided to head on up to Guba, and yes, it's very fair to say these guys run the city. Roleplayers who enter are subject to their rule (Their rule is fair.), and opposition, of course, is welcome. (Wear a helmet). Just found this thread, thought I'd post my opinion. To OP: 1.) You wouldn't post this event and host it in T.O.R. outpost without permission, because it's obvious someone owns it. 2.) If by blissful blissful ignorance sake, you did, you shouldn't go as far as demanding they don't own it because they don't own the server. 3.) You shouldn't be so closed minded as to be unwilling to work with the inhabitants of the town you're hoping to hold an event in. 4.) You shouldn't make enemies with the people who know the town inside and out for a fight. This is the Alamo, they are the cowboys. 5.) You shouldn't need a staff member to shut people up. Bad attitude begets bad attitude. Read back, sure Jared got nasty, but not in his first post.(Wall of text inbound.) Jared opened a door, you slammed it shut. His response was as it was, because you slammed the door in his face. "That's my backyard." "I don't need your permission to hold a party in your backyard." How people don't see a problem with this is beyond me. What the SA RP server is right now is a sandbox for your DayzRP Mod players to try the new engine, and hopefully be able to have fun with the same pool of players. Obviously the rules can't be enforced on there right now, so obviously RP, KoS, RDM, NLR, and all other faucets of DayzRP are completely optional; and yet you have a group of players who have taken it upon themselves to hold down an entire city to make it safe for roleplay. This city, in my opinion, is the forefront of the RP community in Dayz RP SA. The people founding it, running it, and populating it, should be commended, and respected, not brushed over like they don't matter. That I find very discouraging. To Jared & friends: 1.) Jared, you gotta stop going from 0-60 on the hostilities in 1.2 posts. 2.) ... That's it. All I can think of done wrong on their side. I'll add more later if the mood strikes me, there's plenty more that could be said. Any responses are welcome. This made me laugh. Using a GM stepping in as a finger to point at someone. This also made me laugh.
