Island Life Liberation Rules
Everyone is required to connect and be in Teamspeak: TS3.ISLANDLIFELIBERATION.NET
Civilian is the default class on the server, this is the easiest class to learn how to play and with it brings a variety of role-play opportunities. civilians can do just about everything ranging from running for President, creating a Gang/Mafia and taking over the streets of Emita, starting up your own Taxi company and much more! It is recommended you play Civilian if it is your first time playing the server.
Emita Police Department
The police officer class is the hardest of classes to learn to play. In order to play as a Police Officer you're required to be in our Team Speak as well you're required to be trained to play the slot. Only then can you play as a Police Officer. Police Officers main jobs consist of upholding the law of Emita. You do so by pulling over traffic violators and responding to nine one one calls. Emita Police Department has a variety of different slots that are playable, they are.
Special Weapons and Tactics (S.W.A.T)
S.W.A.T or Special Weapons and Tactics is the Emita Police Departments tactical team, they're vital for situations which require a tactical advantage such as Hostage missions, Safe house missions, Bank robberies, and many other occasions. To play as SWAT you require Police Officer Training and SWAT Training. You can take the SWAT Application after playing the server for one full month, the application can be found on the main menu under Applications.
Internal Affairs (IA)
Internal Affairs is Cop Slot one, it requires you to have Police Officer Training AND you must have Admin approval each and every time you wish to play the slot. Internal Affairs duties include; organizing Police Officers and commanding them giving them structure and keeping them organized for call outs and other emergencies however IA's main focus is to deal with corruption on the force. The Internal Affairs Officer is responsible for all Police Officers and must investigate and handle corrupt officers.
Vice is Emita Police Department's detective team. They're in charge of investigating gang areas and removing narcotics off of the streets of Emita. They do so by staking out Gang areas or driving around in unmarked vehicles and in plain clothes to blend in. Vice requires no special permissions aside from the basic Police Officer Training. It is recommended only advanced players play Vice due to its complexity and difficult rules.
Emergency Services Unit is the City of Emitas first respondents. They cover all fire and medical emergencies and focus on car accidents, medical treatment, and if needed the removal of corpses. ESU can be fairly difficult if you aren't sure of what you're doing and can take some getting used to its play style. It requires no special training but it is recommended you know what you're doing and an advanced knowledge of the map is always a bonus.
All classes (Civilian, Police, and ESU) are required to be actively connected to our Team Speak 3 server (TS3.ISLANDLIFELIBERATION.NET). All classes are also restricted to their own respective channels; Civilians may only be in Civilian or Gang Channels, Police may only be in Patrol channels, and ESU are only to be in ESU Channels, the only exception to this rule is to staff members for obvious reasons who are allowed to monitor other channels for game play satisfaction purposes. In short this means that you may not join Police channels to complain about them arresting you, nor may Police do the opposite and join Civilian channels complaining about their role play, if you have an issue with an opposing class please bring it to a staff member via a Help Room.
Their is also an exception to VICE personnel, players who are Police Trained and currently occupying a VICE slot may at their own discretion play in a Civilian channel as long as it is not occupied by another Civilian actively playing.
New Life Rule
If a Civilian is killed by a cop or another civilian they are put under what is called "New Life Rule". However, committing suicide by respawn, jumping off a roof, etc. does not grant you NLR and you may be re-made wanted. Dying via suicide vest or bomb vehicle does grant you NLR. Essentially it is a new slate or fresh start. Once killed, said Civilian has no memory of their previous experiences. That means the following:
• Upon death, a Civilian could NOT contact the Police or give information on what had happened in his previous life.
• You can not return you your place of death for TEN (10) minutes.
• You cannot seek revenge on your killer.
• This means for instance, if you were to attack a Gang area and died you could not return to that fight for TEN (10) minutes.
Police Officers are not held to New Life Rule for the simple fact that their is only a small amount of them. Realistically, you would never be able to take on an entire Police force in real life. The only restrictions Police Officers are held to are the following:
• Police Officers are allowed to continuously respond to Bank Robberies, Safe House and Terrorist Situations, no waiting period required.
• Police Officers are allowed to relay information about suspects/locations even after being killed.
• If a Police Officer (This includes all sub-factions, SWAT and Vice) is killed during any raid, they may not return, period.
General Server Rules
1.0.1 - No cheating, exploiting, glitching, use of third party modifications (add-ons or executables), use of memory editor software (Cheat Engine or anything of the sort), or any other applications that are not provided, provisioned or endorsed by Island Life Liberation.
1.0.2 - Global and Side Chat VON (In-Game voice chat) are strictly not allowed. Typing on Global is to be limited and only when strictly needed, any form of spamming or unnecessary comments will result in you being removed from the server. Exceptions to this are posted below in the appropriate rule sections.
1.0.3 - All players are REQUIRED to be on our Teamspeak. (TS3.ISLANDLIFELIBERATION.NET)
1.0.4 - You're not allowed to suicide or respawn while in an active role-play situation. If you have to abandon a role-play situation, please message an active Moderator+ on Teamspeak to let them know (also inform those that you’re currently in a role-play situation with that you have to disconnect).
1.0.4 - Deathmatching is strictly forbidden, this includes killing with poor reason, baiting players just to shoot them, or anything of the sort. You must have proper reasoning to kill someone. For instance, you cannot kill a police officer pulling you over for speeding or if you’re wanted for minor crimes.
1.0.5 - Using your vehicle as a weapon is not allowed (Vehicle Deathmatch), even in situations where you could use it as self defense. However, you may use your vehicle as a tool (i.e light ramming) to prevent the vehicle from fleeing (this includes Police vs Civilian chases and Civilian vs Civilian chases).
1.0.6 - You are never allowed to purposely crash an aviation vehicle (helicopter, plane or anything that flies). This is a rule we take very seriously and can result in a permanent ban from the server.
1.0.7 - Areas marked on the map as green (except the Apple Orchard) are no crime zones; crime is strictly forbidden in these areas. Police officers, however, may still arrest you in a green (donor areas have it’s own exceptions, please see the donor section below for more information). If you are wanted you should try to avoid theses areas as although police can arrest you inside of these areas, you may not take any action upon the officer. However, if you are being chased by someone trying to rob you, you may not flee to a green zone for cover. This is considered breaking role-play. Police officers must seek Moderator+ approval to use lethal against a wanted criminal inside of a green zone (still see the donor section for its own exceptions).
1.0.8 - Civilians are allowed to steal police weapons & vehicles; keep in mind these items are not to be taken from locked vehicles or green zones. This rule excludes stun weapons (taser and bean bag shotgun), as civilians are not allowed to possess or use a police stun weapon.
1.0.9 - Police may use lethal force against criminals who are wanted for: Hit and Run, Attempted Murder, Murder/Assassination, Robbing the Government Convoy, Robbing the Bank and Terrorism. Police may also shoot on sight people who attempt to steal/are driving police vehicles. Please also be noted that they must be literally wanted for Hit and Run, as there is a difference between VDM & Hit and Run.
1.0.10 - Anyone loitering in the area of a government convoy (Bank/Security truck) for an extended period of time can also be engaged with lethal, AFTER a typed warning to leave the area has been issued and 15 seconds has been allowed for the loiterer to leave.
1.0.11 - You are not allowed to land near or fly over Civilian Spawn under ANY circumstances (Civilian, ESU or Police), and doing so will most likely result in a permanent ban.
1.0.12 - Crimes are not to be committed against ESU, this includes stealing ESU vehicles, robbing ESU personnel and killing ESU. There are no exceptions to this rule, and failure to abide by this rule could result in a ban from the server.
1.0.13 - If you VDM (Vehicle Deathmatch) someone you MUST contact them immediately and offer compensation equal to what they have lost. It is advised you screenshot this process in-case the issue is escalated and brought to a member of staff. The ONLY exemption to this rule is if a cop intentionally uses his body to block/stop a vehicle that contains a criminal within it. If there is an alternative way instead of running over the cop, this option MUST be taken first. (Remember it is down to evidence or staff discretion to determine the outcome if brought to a help room).
1.0.14 - You may not join class-specific TS channels that you are not a part of, i.e. no cops in civilian channels, and vice-versa. Also, as police you MUST be in a police channel unless you have a valid reason which has been verified by a staff member. Additionally, you may cross-join channels to offer compensation for accidental VDM/RDM (be polite and leave immediately if you’re unwanted there - do not cause more hassle/retaliate to any verbal comment you may receive).
1.0.15 - You are not allowed to fail role-play (Fail RP) on this server. This applies to but is not limited to, jumping into the driver's seat of a vehicle whilst tased/restrained or disconnecting from the server whilst being brought to jail.
1.0.16 - If you see someone breaking a rule, go to requesting help on Teamspeak and wait patiently in a Requesting Staff Member channel (instead of spamming global with RDM, VDM, etc).
1.0.17 - Do not play sound files on Global or Side Chat. Please keep them limited to group/vehicle/direct chats.

2.0.1 - Police officers may only use lethal firearms when their life or another life is in immediate danger; or if the target is wanted for one of the following: Hit and Run, Attempted Murder, Murder/Assassination, Robbing the Government Convoy, Robbing the Bank and Terrorism. However, it is ADVISED to try and take the criminal alive but only when practical.

Vice may, however, use civilian vehicles and weaponry to blend in, providing it is not a sniper rifle, marksman rifle, machine gun (such as the M60), or launchers. Assault rifles are fine providing they do not have a marksman or sniper scope.
2.0.6 - Police officers may only shoot at a fleeing vehicle if it is occupied by a currently wanted civilian for one of the following: Hit and Run, Attempted Murder, Murder, Robbing the Government Convoy, Robbing the Bank and Terrorism. You may not shoot at a fleeing vehicle with a stun weapon (taser or bean bag shotgun), as this is not realistic.
2.0.7 - Police officers are required to inform civilians of their charges AND time to be jailed before they are put in jail (THIS MUST BE TYPED).
2.0.8 - Police officers may never randomly search civilians or vehicles (this includes during a traffic stop).

- In the immediate area at the time of a robbery
- Driving a stolen vehicle
- Having an unholstered weapon (licensed or not)
2.0.10 - Any area highlighted in ORANGE or RED on the map is restricted to raid rules. You require at least THREE (3) officers to raid an area, you must announce a raid before entering said area and must actually enter the area. A raid cannot last any longer than 15 minutes, and requires a 15 minute cool down period for that specific area. However, that does not stop you from raiding another area. Good Fellas HQ (Mafia) requires a 5 person team to raid and follows gang area raiding rules. Cops that enter a gang area and die are bound by NLR rules and may not return for 10 minutes.
**If there are less than five (5) Police Officers online you may raid by yourself, all other raiding rules still apply and the raid must still be announced.

2.0.13 - Police officers have the right to shoot at individuals attempting to steal police vehicles as it is considered an act of aggression upon the Government. Once the person exits that vehicle, they are no longer considered kill on sight and you must refrain from using lethal firearms.
2.0.14 - If a suspect being pursued flees into a gang area, the cops may pursue them into it to apprehend them. The cops should not apprehend, search, or otherwise harass anyone else inside acting peacefully, as being in a gang area is not a crime by itself. The cops may, however, search anyone with an unholstered illegal weapon. If the cops have not successfully apprehended the suspect after 5 minutes they must leave or call a legal raid if they wish to stay.
2.0.15 - Armed or armored vehicles may be shot on sight with intent to kill the crew (except for PMC armed/armored vehicles). This includes the terrorist bomb car (Hippie Lada) and Bomb truck from IRA.
2.0.16 - Police officers that are donors may only use donor weapons that are in the VIP cop base.
2.0.17 - Police officers can not camp/park inside Civilian Spawn, as this induces trolling and other needless encounters between new-spawns and police officers. In short, this means you may not hang around in Civilian Spawn. However, you can enter if you are called to a situation and are needed to arrest someone but you must leave immediately after.
2.0.18 - Police officers are allowed to destroy armed / terrorist vehicles or take them into police custody, except for PMC vehicles.
2.0.19 - Police Side Chat (VON/Voice) is only to be used for situations that immediately endanger yours or someone else's life (examples: shots fired, etc). Anything else should be said via Teamspeak to reduce In-Game microphone spam. If you spam Side Chat with useless information you risk being kicked and even risk losing your police badge.
