First of all look, this is RelaxedRP, a place meant to come to relax and just chill. This is not like other RP Servers where you can go guns blazing and/or negotiate with cops. So your first priority is not to mess with people who are on the server to do just that, relax, so leave em alone criminal-wise… The server is also set to PVE for a reason, to get away from other servers where you can just get shot in the face for no reason. If you want to come here to be a career criminal that’s fine! But gunplay is not big here, so please don’t be guns blazing all the time.
1- No Hostage Taking: That’s powergaming the poeple who are here to chill
2- Cops VS Crims: This is very simple, just stay out of the cuff range from the cops, if the cops can cuff you then it’s over. So just stay out of cuff range. If you point a gun at a cop and he still cuffs you, that’s still fair game cause guess what… you were in cuff range. This is arcade-style type gameplay is the type of play we do when it comes to Cops Vs Criminals. So aiming your weapon at cops and shooting around them won’t stop them. So what do you do? Just be sure not to be on foot near cops… period. Make sure not to be in your vehicle and stopped near cops because they can jump into your passenger seat and cuff you that way as well. If you can be cuffed, it’s done, simple as that.
3- Robbing Stores: Rob all the stores you want, but keep in mind, if the cop is able to get in and cuff you it’s done. Setup lookouts outside to alert that the cops are coming. Open a hail of bullets at their cars to keep them at bay if you want.
4- Reactions from Cops:
– If you take off in a car chase, cops can ram your car all they want, but so can you.
– If you open fire on cops, then they can fire back all they want, even if you shot just 1 bullet, then you opened up the can of Lethal Force.
– Cops can cuff you under any circumstances if you are within cuff range, even if you are jumping over a fence, or jumped from a ledge, etc…. if the cops can cuff you, it means you we’re within range and its done for.
5- How Cops Work: Usually if you see cops in your area and sticking to the area, it’s because you’ve triggered notifications of some sort. So you need to figure out, did you sell too many drugs and someone called in on you? We’re you driving recklessly in the area and an AI Ped called you in? Did you fire a gun near peds? Did you punch a ped in the face? This type of notification is neat because it kind of brings a bit of realism to when you are breaking the law and if someone sees it, they call the police. So like I said if you see cop cars all of a sudden show up, you did something to bring them there.
6- Can you make demands to cops?: No, if the cop doesn’t want to RP a standoff scenario and decides to run after you even though you are shooting at him, and try to cuff you, he can. Some cops will RP this scenario, but be ready to flee. Baseline, this is arcade-style gameplay when it comes to Cops vs Crims, if they get within cuff range, it’s done.
7- This feels unfair, cops are too powerful: Well really they’re not. All they can do is cuff you if they get close, that’s it, that’s the only tool they have. So just stay away from them by any means that you can. So for example, say if you are a group of 4, have 1 person sacrifice themselves and distract the cops and get arrested while the other 3 get away… only 1 person will go to jail, the tickets aren’t that bad, and the rest of the group gets away. Or just shoot the hell out of the cop cars before they can even get close. You guys have PLENTY of tools to help you defeat the cops as well… Bottom line, don’t let them close enough to cuff you.
