NOTICE: With the release of OP-FW, we have removed numerous rules to allow for a less strict and limited play style. Due to this, we cannot stress how important it is to have good judgment whenever doing something that could previously be considered a rule break. For example, we removed the rule which stated you were not allowed to fly any planes/helicopters. As this is allowed, you are still, obviously, not allowed to use a helicopter to farm drugs more efficiently, or to land a plane in Legion Square. You can almost consider the rules guidelines, but, it’s all about having good common sense. Bans will be given very quickly if you decide to ignore this advice. If seen doing stupid stuff, you will very quickly be exported without questions asked.


Legacy Roleplay India, unlike many other servers out there, mainly focuses on roleplay rather than combat. We strive to achieve high-quality roleplay through a wide variety of set rules and a strict administration.


There is a very long list of rules ahead of you, so we advise you to make yourself comfortable. It is extremely important that you understand and follow all of them. Rule violations will be taken very seriously.


Note that if there is no punishment explicitly written for a specific rule, the staff reserves the right to give any punishment they feel is necessary. If you feel like you were wrongly banned, then feel free to submit a ban appeal.


We have implemented a warning system. Usually, this means that you get three warnings before you get banned from the server. However, depending on the context of previous warnings and current situation, staff may decide to give more or none at all. It really boils down to the staff’s decision.
"BEFORE JOINING THE SERVER YOU NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU READ ALL THE RULES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS ( For civilians as well as Whitelisted Jobs such as EMS,Police,PDM ).

1. Adult Community
Legacy Roleplay’s community generally consists of adults or people above the age of 18, however, this does not mean that you have to be said age to play. We respect and recognize the younger people that play on this server and will not tolerate any discrimination or bullying of any kind.
People are very rarely unbanned for the offenses mention below.

(1.1) Bullying, Harassment, or Targeting is punished with a permanent ban without appeal.

(1.2) Any form of discrimination, racism or sexism is punished with a permanent ban without appeal. Racist slurs are not welcomed regardless of what context you say them in. Rape Roleplay or vulgar language/actions are not tolerated.

(1.3) Normal Swearing is allowed even when you are in a roleplay.

(1.4) Any threats made to the community or a person will be taken very seriously. A permanent ban will be issued without the chance to appeal. Depending on the context of the threat, we’ll happily assist the police with any inquiries.

(1.5) The Staff Team reserves the right to ban any person from our servers at any time if they are found to be disruptive or if we have a valid reason to think that they are here to be disruptive.

(1.6) In roleplay, every situation is different, and it is difficult to detail everything here. Just keep in mind that this is an adult community and some things come down to using common sense.

(1.7) Encouraging or forcing other members of the community to break rules is strictly prohibited and will be punished with a ban.

(1.8) Providing false information such as your age when applying for a position/job at our servers or when asked by a staff member is not allowed. Keep in mind that you should never be asked to provide your full name, address, or any information that is personal.

2. General Rules
(2.1.1) Vehicle Deathmatch (also known as VDM) is strictly prohibited. At Legacy Roleplay, we define VDM as the act or effort of intentionally using a vehicle to kill or injure other persons, or, where a player kills another person, without intent, by reckless performance under circumstances where any sane individual would understand that such performance could beyond reasonable doubt result in the death of another person. Examples of VDM include, but are not limited to: intentionally running people over or causing explosions to vehicles in order to kill or injure any person(s), speeding excessively with a car hitting a motorcycle where the rider/passenger dies or causing an explosion to a vehicle in a high traffic area like Legion Square which results in the death of any person(s).

(2.1.2) An act in which a person uses his vehicle as a weapon in order to protect his own life from any direct or immediate threat, will not be considered VDM. A direct or immediate threat in this section is defined as any individual who actively attempts to take your life at the moment. If a person who attempts to kill you, but falls short of completing the act, tries to flee the scene, he is no longer considered a direct threat to your life.

(2.2) Random Deathmatch (also known as RDM) is the act of killing/downing somebody without first engaging in quality roleplay. The mentioned roleplay should always include directly initiating on somebody’s life or having your own life initiated on. You are also to give people an incentive and enough time to comply with your orders (e.g during a robbery, do not shoot after 3 seconds if they don’t listen). Note that we do not consider quick countdowns quality roleplay.

(2.3) Fear RP is not allowed. This means that you are to value your life at all times and act accordingly in situations. For example, if you have a gun pointed at you, then you are to listen to commands given by the person holding the gun or anyone affiliated with that person to ensure your own survival.

(2.4) Any modifications that change the functionality of the game or changes how our systems/scripts work (also known as modding and scripting) is strictly prohibited on our servers and will result in a permanent ban being issued. An example of a modification would be a crosshair or one that gives you free money.

(2.5) Bugs are inevitable as the server is in constant development. Exploiting any of these in-game bugs and using them to your advantage is not allowed. If you discover a bug that can be exploited, you are to immediately report it to any staff member available and they will make sure it’s taken care of. You are also not to exploit certain game mechanics such as using the deposit/withdraw for your car to repair it.

(2.6) Combat logging during any roleplay situation is considered exploitation. Some examples of this would be: logging out during a firefight, being chased by the police, arrested by the police, while dead awaiting a medic, logging out to save gear, rage-quitting, logging out whilst restrained/detained, etc. We are aware of common crashes, connection issues, etc., however, this is often reflected in the logs and staff will make an informed decision on whether you’ve tried to resolve the issue by, for example, logging back on.

(2.7) Trolling is the deliberate act of performing certain actions to provoke a reaction. We have a very clear list of what we consider trolling, but we advise using common sense as trolling is a very broad subject, and it is impossible to list everything. We consider the following trolling: running around while people are trying to roleplay, throwing yourself in front of vehicles, blocking people with your car without RP, jumping off buildings, bombarding people with messages, and playing soundboards/voice changers in-game without RP and in our discord channels. Depending on the severity, a violation of this rule could lead to a permanent ban without appeal.

(2.9) Trading real-life items for any in-game luxury is not allowed. This is because we do not want to be seen as a commercial entity as we feel it is unethical and FiveM strictly prohibits it. Donations made to cover server costs is an exemption.

(2.10) Using your phone to call jobs in order for them to arrive only so you can rob, take them as a hostage, or perform any other illegal activities will be punished accordingly.

(2.11) Ban evasion is not allowed. This means that, after banned, you may not play on other accounts to get around the ban or attempt anything that might trick staff into thinking you’re a different person.

(2.12) You may not advertise other communities through Legacy Roleplay, nor should you for any products/services/accounts for personal gain unless relevant to the server itself. A ban would be issued through the respective channel (e.g our Discord server) that you were using to advertise.

(2.13) Between your characters, there must not be any interactions. For instance, you are not allowed to transfer or give money between them. Doing this with a middle-man is also not allowed, and will lead to a ban.

(2.14) While driving the car in side the city your speed limit should be at 35 MPH/56 KMH. While driving the car out side the city your speed limit should be at 75 MPH/120 KMH.

(2.15) Impersonating any government official (Police/EMS/Staff Members or Admins) is not at all allowed. Players will be banned without warnings.

(2.16) While reporting someone, kindly make sure you have sufficient evidence.

(2.17) When you use voice changer that would be match with your character eg- Not to Low, Not to High.

(2.18) Stealing any kind of official government vehicles (Police Cars/Ambulance/Fire Trucks) is not at all allowed. Players will be banned without warnings if caught.(Temporary Rule)

(2.19 Due to multiple circumstances and situations we are enforcing a new rule that states that no one is allowed to brandish a weapon, indulge in criminal activity or loiter in any of the safe zones (Outside/inside Pillbox hospital , Outside/ inside Police department) (For Pillbox hospital you are only allowed to be there if you are authorized by medical staff or if you are seeking treatment). Failure in complying with this new rule shall result in a kick/ban from this server. Furthermore we are temporarily allowing the PD/EMS to take lethal/non lethal action on such cases without RP to ensure better control over these areas.(Temporary Rule)

(2.20) Anyone doing combat logging while getting arrested or any scenario will get a permanent ban and will be never unbanned so do not do this ever we can have your ID pretty easily.

(2.21) While many believe that if they are not “read their rights” they will escape punishment for criminal acts, it is not quite so clear cut. Instead, if one is not read their rights, then any evidence obtained from the suspect prior to being advised of their Miranda Rights may be inadmissible as evidence at trial. but they will still be jailed.

3. Roleplay Rules
(3.1) Powergaming is strictly prohibited. This is when you aim to maximize progress towards a specific goal, to the exclusion of other considerations such as storytelling (roleplay) and atmosphere.

(3.2) Fail RP is the act of failing to roleplay realistically and is a bannable offense. When playing, it is important to keep to realistic capabilities. This includes not using GTA’s physics to perform actions that would not be possible in real life. Example: Jumping off a bridge with a car, only to then fall 20 meters and survive.

(3.3) Breaking roleplay in-voice (also known as going out of character) is never allowed unless a staff member arrives and clearly announces that there now is an on-going staff situation. We have seen numerous cases of people having personal arguments and threatening to file reports, and we want to make clear that this is not allowed. Doing this will lead to a permanent ban without any prior warnings.

(3.4) You are to always have and be able to use a microphone while playing on our servers.

(3.5) You must hot-mic all communication that is made outside of the server’s voice channel if the it is relevant to the roleplay. This means, for example, that if you are communicating with a fellow team member on Discord or Teamspeak and you are within the audio proximity of another player (they can hear you), then you must ensure that player can overhear everything that you are saying. Note that this rule does not apply if you are in a direct gunfight or if you are in no roleplay situation at all.

(3.5.1) When your communication devices have been stripped from you, then all communication is to be made through proximity/direct [voice] chat.

(3.6) Continuing to roleplay a character of a sensitive nature after being requested to stop is punishable by a ban. A sensitive character could, for example, be Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin.

(3.7) Baiting is not allowed. Baiting for the sake of a gunfight is not considered roleplay. A few examples of baiting are: doing donuts around the police to provoke a reaction, robbing a gas station only to start a gunfight, and standing on top of somebody’s car without any RP to get a reaction from the owner.

(3.8) After a server restart, all roleplay that initiated within 15 minutes before should be forgotten.

(3.9) Roleplaying as a nude character is not allowed. An exception for this rule is if you are inside the strip club (Vanilla Unicorn).

(3.10) Playing as a sexist character is not tolerated at our servers regardless of how good your roleplay is. Punishment is a permanent ban.

(3.11) OOC channels should not be used to resolve roleplay situations. This means that you should not use these channels to tell people that what is your location, situation and you are not allowed nor threaten to file reports. Of course, you may do this on before-hand, but not after actions have already been committed and/or roleplay is completed.

(3.12) No more /me zip-ties hostage because that is Power-gaming because you not letting hostage runaway if he/she has a chance while the guns are not pointed at them.

(3.13) Using Helicopter/Planes for weed farm runs is not allowed it will be considered as power gaming do not use any air vehicle in the city limits or do not land and of them in the city roads buildings,etc.

(3.14) You are not allowed to mix the knowledge of 2 separate characters of yours. Especially bringing your police character knowledge into your non-police character roleplay. You cannot say stuff like "Mera bhai to aisa krta hai, ye fine do, wo jail do, tumhe aisa krna chahiye etc.". If you are roleplaying as a criminal than you need to act like one. If an ex-police/police member or anyone is found mixing character knowledge than this will be considered FailRP.

(3.15) i) You are not allowed to do /me takes tracker off on an officer when he is down because that is abusing the /me system, realistically you would not know where the officer has kept his tracker, you can do /me takes radio and ask the officer at gun point when he is alive to turn his tracker off at which point he has to comply . ii) Don't break RP by talking about government rules and regulations , please save that for later. This reduces the quality of RP

4. Metagaming
(4.1) Using information which was not obtained through roleplay to influence actions in-game is considered metagaming and is not allowed.

(4.2) You are not allowed to identify people by using their assigned IDs. This number is only to be used when you wish to report somebody or by staff when performing certain actions on players (such as kicking). Punishment is a kick or depending on the context, may lead to a more strict punishment which may include in a permanent ban.

(4.3) If you are restrained or if your communication devices have been removed then you must make yourself inactive on any other forms of communication besides proximity chat.

(4.4) "Stream Sniping" is considered metagaming and is not allowed If a player is streaming on our servers, then you must not use the information that you gain from watching the stream in-game, if found doing so will result into a kick and in a more serious situation may result into a permanent ban.

5. New Life Rule
This section defines the “New Life Rule”.

(5.1) When a new life starts, your character will forget all the information and events leading up to your death. However, you are still the same character (same job, gang, friends).

(5.3) A new life does not start when:

Your character cannot return within 500m of the location of death or be involved in the same combat situation until the situation is over or 10 minutes have passed in real time.

You may not actively engage in or continue the same combat situation for the next 10 minutes in real time.
Your character remembers all the information before they were downed.

You cannot communicate with anyone while downed, especially not give any tactical information to your teammates.
