NitroNet RP - FiveM - Roleplay Rules

  You are required to comply with these rules at all times. It is your responsibility to stay up to date with them as they are strictly enforced


(1.1) Server Requirements

1.1(a): To play on our FiveM servers, you must have a basic understanding of our rules and gameplay mechanics.

1.1(b): You must have a functioning and clear microphone to communicate with other players and staff.

1.1(c): Your game must be up-to-date and compatible with the latest version of FiveM.

1.1(d): Any third-party software or mods must be approved by our staff before use on our servers.

1.1(e): We recommend a stable internet connection and a computer that meets the minimum system requirements for playing FiveM.

Please note that failure to meet these requirements may result in being unable to join our servers.

(1.2) Red Zone

1.2(a):  Red Zones - are defined as kill on sight zones, we only have 1 red zone located on Cayo Island

(1.3) MetaGaming and FailRP

1.3(a): MetaGaming is the act of using out-of-game knowledge to gain an unfair advantage in-game or to disrupt the game-play experience for other players. FailRP is the act of breaking in-game rules or acting in an unrealistic manner that breaks immersion for other players. These actions can include abusing game mechanics, exploiting glitches, or forcing unrealistic scenarios that detract from the overall experience of the game.

1.3(b): Examples of MetaGaming and FailRP include but are not limited to:

  • Using out-of-character knowledge in-character
  • Ignoring or breaking established in-game rules
  • Refusing to follow instructions from in-game authorities
  • Using glitches or exploits to gain an unfair advantage
  • Refusing to role-play or acting in an unrealistic manner

1.3(c): As an example, if John Doe convinces his friend James Doe to register an account and purchase a house solely to give John Doe an extra key to bypass the three-house limit, this is considered MetaGaming and FailRP. This action unfairly benefits John Doe, while denying other players the opportunity to own and use the extra house. It is a violation of our rules and will result in consequences such as warnings or bans.

(1.4) Respect

Our FiveM community values respect and courteous behavior among all players. We understand that the online world can be unpredictable and at times, unruly. However, we have set clear expectations regarding player conduct to foster a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone.

We encourage players to exercise self-control during moments of frustration, such as when dying in-game, and refrain from engaging in behavior that may be considered harassing or offensive. It is not acceptable to use derogatory language, insults, or engage in other forms of disrespect towards other players or groups.

Furthermore, we do not tolerate any behavior that involves a player's real-life information, such as doxxing or personal threats. Players who engage in such activities will be immediately banned from our servers.

We believe that fostering a culture of respect and positivity is essential for creating a fun and welcoming community that everyone can enjoy.

(1.7) Chat Rules

Defending parties have the right to roleplay towards the outcome they prefer, as long as they do not engage in PowerGaming or MetaGaming.

You are not allowed to rob players without a proper reason. You are not allowed to kill a robbed player if he showed no resistance. It is only reasonable to kill a robbed player if he calls for help or resists. You are not allowed to rob a player that you come across randomly on the ground or if you have no prior rp or with them.

3.1(b): Kidnapping is the act of forcefully taking a player against their will. It is not allowed to kill kidnapped players if they are complying.

3.1(c): While performing the robbery, you must roleplay seizing the items from the victim first, and then you have to perform the seizure by using the /rob command.

(3.2) Sexual Harassment

3.2(a): Forcing inappropriate roleplay is strictly prohibited on the server. It refers to compelling or pressuring another player to engage in a scenario that involves sexual content or similar content, which they do not consent to or feel uncomfortable participating in. Players who refuse to participate in such roleplays cannot be forced to do so, and the "2.7(a) Failure to Roleplay" rule is not applicable in such situations.

Example: (a) Engaging in erotic roleplay (ERP) is strictly forbidden on the server. Will result in a ban.

(3.3 ) Unrealistic RP 

(a): Unrealistic roleplay is the act of attempting to perform or create scenarios that are unrealistic, similar to the "Power Gaming" rule, but aimed at players attempting to roleplay as animals, or any other such unrealistic roleplay.


(a): Raids on Police Departments, other Government buildings, which would realistically be protected by a number of guards and police officers stationed in them. Unless admin permission is given to perform such action which is properly roleplayed and has a reasonable cause to do so (such as riots, terrorism)

(b): Kidnapping / Robbing in popular places with a high presence of civilians / cops is considered as unrealistic roleplay. Players must choose proper locations to conduct robberies (allies, ghetto street etc).

(c): Car Surfing is disallowed and is considered as unrealistic roleplay. 

(d): In traffic stops it is prohibited to initiate a shootout until you have exhausted all other options - such as attempting to successfully evade, or simply paying a fine if you're given one.

(e): Calling backup from your group members over such situation as a traffic stop, vehicle collision with another player, or other petty situations is prohibited as realistically no criminal organization would risk and waste resources to such situations

(3.4 ) Safe Zones 

(a): Safezones are defined areas in which initiating situations that involve shooting, robberies, kidnaps and other criminal roleplay is prohibited.

(b): The safe zones are:

(c): Police Departments and Hospitals

(d): Places of work for legal jobs (only the single point of work, not throughout the city while working).

(e): If a situation is initiated outside of a safezone, and the involved parties somehow end up in the safe zones either through a chase or whatnot, the roleplay may continue within the safezone. You cannot just run into a safezone and expect to be immune after someone attempts to rob you outside the zone

(f): You may initiate criminal roleplay in those areas with permission of an administrator. The safe zones are established to prevent crime from being performed where it would be unrealistic for it to occur due to high activity and surveillance.

(3.5) Names 

(a): Names must be reasonable, realistic and formatted so that they consist of a first name and a last name.

(b): In-game names must:

(c): Not contain any numerals

(d): Not contain any symbols

(e): Be appropriately capitalized 

(f): 😞 Not be of notorious persons (ie. Adolf Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, Hillary Clinton, ...)

(g): A player's character name may not be similar to his/her 2nd character. It needs to be completely different, both the first and last name.  

(h): Furthermore, if an administrator decides that one name is not reasonable or valid, the administrator may request that the person changes the name.

(3.6) New Life Rule (NLR)

(a) Returning after death refers to the act of returning to a location where you have died previously.

(b) You are not allowed to return to or interact with the scene, location, or individuals involved in your previous death for a period of 10 minutes.

(b) You cannot retain in-character infomation form before you died into your new life.

(3.7) Miscellaneous

(a): Miscellaneous rules are acts which cannot be categorized in any above category but are deemed inappropriate and are therefore prohibited

(b): It is not allowed to start initiating kidnapping on a player for no reason. The reason must also not be small and random. You cannot go kidnapping somebody over a car crash. The acceptable reasons for kidnapping are: group rivalries, paid and roleplayed contracts, and alike situations.

(c): It is not allowed to start initiating robberies on players for no reason. Somebody who has a million worth net worth has no reason to go street robbing players. Merely going for robberies just for the purpose of entertainment is prohibited.

(e): It is not allowed to randomly /rob a knocked player. Randomly means, you spot a knocked player on the street, and you approach him and start robbing every item off him just because you can.

(3.8) Poor Roleplay

(a): You are expected to roleplay to a good standard at all times, and put time, effort and thought into the actions that you portray. The decisions and actions that you make should be logical and in-keeping with the character that you play. 

(b): Lazy roleplay is not acceptable and you must seek to resolve situations in a way that is appropriate for the circumstances at the time. The use of certain weapons should be proportionate to the situation and as a last resort.

(c): Your roleplay must be clear to understand with a focus on giving as much detail as possible.


(a): John Doe knocks a player and types /me pats when searching the body.

(b): John Doe drives on the wrong side of the road, up mountains in a sports car and does donuts outside of LSPD.

(c): John Doe and Jane Doe are robbing Joe Smith and Joe Smith ignores their commands and starts opening fire with no effort to interact.

(d): John Doe is in a street gang. John Doe purchases a $1,000,000 sports car and drivers it around with hood members shooting from it.

(3.9) NVL (Not Valuing Life) / (Fail Fear)

(a): You must show fear in roleplay situations that require you to in order to preserve your character's life. If you are outgunned, outnumbered, at a disadvantage then you must comply with the aggressor(s). While this rule may not be clear in some cases, the administration will make the final decision and conclude whether the rule was broken or not.


(a): The FearRP does not just depend on numbers i.e 2v1. In some cases, there may be other things to look at such as equipment, health, position, advantage and disadvantage of both parties.\n \n\n\n  

(b): If the aggressor is disrupted in any way, the other player can try escaping or fight back. This does not count if the aggressor lowers his gun down to type. In that case the player(s) are still under the FearRP rule.

Example: (a): John Doe and Jane Doe are aiming at Joe Smith who is unarmed, but Joe Smith does not comply and punches them without showing any fear.

(b): John Doe aims at Joe Smith's head, but Joe Smith does not care and retaliates.

(4.0) Unrealistic Driving / GTA Driving

(a): Keep the driving similar to real life.  Example: \n (a): You're driving a sports car off road ( Driving up mountains ) Etc.\n \n\n\n Clarification: \n (a): Putting offroads wheels on a sports car does not turn it into an offroad car.
