2.0 Behaviour [TOP]
2.1 General Respect
City Life recognises that the nature of the game may occasionally involve a level of role-played abusive language and other adult content. However;
- Such content that is considered outside the realms of roleplay will not be tolerated.
- Petty arguments and bickering will also not be tolerated.
- Such language may be used in a role-playing scenario if it does not cause offence to others present.
- Members who use gender, race, religion, physical/mental ability, background, etc. in a derogatory manner on the servers, forums or TS will be member reported and receive a punishment at the Member Report Committee’s discretion.
- Repeated incidents may result in a permanent ban.
- City Life promotes members to be mindful of others. Those who repeatedly cause offence may be member reported and receive a punishment at the Member Report Committee’s discretion.
2.4 Rage Quitting
…is the intentional disconnection from the server/website/internet to avoid undesirable events including, although not exhaustive of; roleplaying within the game, debate/argument with members, etc. City Life promotes fair play and sportsmanship; those who chose to Rage Quit to avoid unwanted negative effects are not practising these qualities.
- Players who are required to disconnect during an event that may be alleged under Rage Quitting should inform all relevant parties involved the reasons for the disconnection.
- Those who legitimately disconnect during undesirable events must endeavour to make relevant arrangements to recommence a true reflection of role play concerned.
- Those players who Rage Quit or do not seek to resolve a roleplay event after returning from a legitimate disconnection will receive a member report.
2.5 Breaking Character
Breaking Character (BC) is defined as discussing out of game matters (relating to the game) while in the game.
For example, talking about a possible rule break or another member's poor role-playing skills is considered Breaking Character and will result in a member report. Instead, stay within character and finish that situation before you follow the Chain of Command to resolve the issue.
Breaking Character (BC) must be immersion breaking and justified so one word slips of the tongue is not BC it needs to be full on OOC actions such as “This player is cancer I know him from a WoW server and I know his RP skills are substandard"
2.6 Failure to Roleplay
- Failure to Roleplay_(FTR), is defined as abusing systems and keybindings to gain an advantage over other players. A good example of this would be binding and spam a key to get in the driver's seat of a vehicle while being cuffed.
- Using any form of communication in or out of the game whilst cuffed, in custody or dead. (This does not include the in-game voice chat!)
- When cuffed, in custody or dead you are not allowed to use the chat, radios, 311s, 141s or TS to give out any information to other players to aid an escape or affect the RP scenario.
3.0 Misuse and abuse [TOP]
3.1 Multiple Accounts
City Life allows ONE account ONLY per member. Members are responsible for ensuring that only one account is created per household, internet connection, phone landline or ISP contract.
Creating/using multiple accounts on the Forum/Game Server (GS)/Team Speak (TS) is not permitted under any circumstances. City Life Rogue Detection Systems (RDT) will identify and highlight any Internet Protocol (IP) and/or Personal Computer (PC) with more than one membership account. This will result in an immediate block of the accounts concerned and the permanent ban of the IP and PC without appeal.
There is an exception to this rule however if you have separate phone lines/IP addresses you can sign up just do not switch to the other account as that will flag a duplicate account and both will be banned. (This is still one account per member).
- City Life apologises for any inconvenience this may cause with friends and families living in the same household. We regret to inform these members that there will be no exceptions under any circumstances. City Life recommends that alternative arrangements are sought where possible in order to maintain legitimate accounts.
- Members who have forgotten their account details are advised to contact an Admin or create a post in the Help sections on the Forum. Do not create another account; this will result in a ban.
- Members are responsible for their own accounts. Should a member forget their account details, connect using incorrect details and/or require an account reset, members will be required to donate £5 via PayPal. This is to encourage members to maintain their accounts positively. Do not create another account; this will result in a ban.
3.2 Server Spamming
… is the repeated and prolific disconnection followed rapidly by re-connection during short bursts. This can cause significant server lag. This may be caused by poor internet connection, ineffective game file set-up or malicious attacks.
- Members found spamming any City Life system will receive a member report. This includes, but is not limited to; 911/141/311/ATC, Forums, TS3, in-game chat, email and Instant Messaging (IM).

As stated, City Life promotes fair play and sportsmanship. To that end, City Life does not accept members using any method to cheat by creating beneficial opportunities, improving statistics, breaching rules, foul play, etc. (this list is by no means exhaustive).
- Where cheating is suspected, members are advised to follow the Chain of Command, discretion is advised. Whistleblowers are encouraged to provide evidence (e.g. video record) to aid Admins investigation. Malicious allegations of cheating will also not be tolerated and may result in a member report.

- Evidence may also be passed to Bohemia Interactive (BI) for assessment and appropriate action.

- Where hacking is suspected, members are encouraged to follow the Chain of Command, discretion is advised.

BattlEye - Global Bans
If you are receiving a dialogue box that says you are subject to a BattlEye Global Ban you must be aware that City Life RPG has no power or influence over these bans.
A Global Ban is issued by a third party Anti-Cheat Software Engine. No one associated with City Life RPG can overturn a global ban nor can we appeal such a thing on your behalf.
If you believe you have been banned in error, please visit the BattlEye Support website
Don't bother appealing if you have actually cheated. You will waste everyone's time and will end up in the same position you are now, banned.
