Rule #5 (Robberies)
  • A new rule "Robberies in Safe Areas" (5.2) was added.
View Rules

5.2: Committing Robberies in 'Safe' Areas
It is required to first notify an online server administrator before conducting a robbery of another player in a 'safe' area, regardless of the time of day:
  • Los Santos International, Pershing Square, Commerce, Market, Downtown Los Santos, Mulholland, Marina, Rodeo, Richman, Vinewood, Temple, Santa Maria Beach, Conference Center, Verdant Bluffs, Verona Beach, Dillimore, Montgomery, Palomino Creek, Blueberry
If taking place in one of the above listed areas, the robbery must be approved by the administrator before it may continue.
If approved, the administrator may, in their sole discretion, choose to inform the police to respond at any point during it.

Note that the above rule does not apply to Safezones (which are different) and where all violent crime is prohibited.
