READING THE RULES ARE A PREREQUISITE BEFORE APPLYING ON OUR SERVER. WE MAY QUESTION YOU ON THEM DURING THE APPLICATION PROCESS. FAILING TO ABIDE WILL RESULT IN THE ADMINISTRATION TAKING ACTIONS AGAINST YOU.

 


 

Main Rules of Conduct

This is a ROLEPLAY server, not a PVP server. Griefing has Zero Tolerance.

  1. A working microphone is preferred and encouraged for in-game RP purposes.
  2. You must be 16 years of age or older to apply.
  3. Be respectful to everyone on the server. Any personal insults or attacks are strictly prohibited.
    • Any form of harassment to include but not limited to discrimination against race, sex, gender, orientation, disability, national origin, religion, and hate speech is not allowed and will be met with a swift Justice.
      1. It is understood there will be some prejudices between in-game factions, keep these interactions tame and appropriate. RP is supposed to be fun and nobody should feel personally attacked.
    • If there is a personal problem with another player, handle it off the game and out of the Discord public chat. There are PMs if you need to resolve a problem.
    • Any player caught harassing or bullying another player on the server, or outside of the server but in relation to their presence on the server, will be permanently removed and barred from the current private group and any future groups.
  4. You must open voice comms to anyone who requests voice comms.
  5. Do not play music or sound files over voice comms.
  6. You must have Discord installed and use Push To Talk. You must be online in Discord if you’re online in the EDRP server.
    • For RP purposes, most Discord text and voice channels are considered long range comms and the in-game comms are short-range. 
    • The Discord channels that are named after stations are to be used as “station bars” and are local only. To use them, you should be either docked at the station, not online on the EDRP group (open, solo, or other group OK), far away from our systems, or offline in the game. While console players cannot join in missions, they can still RP here. There is no OOC in these channels.
  7. Do not abuse glitches, use exploits such as “mods”, “hacks”, “cheats”, “scripts”, “bots”, “trainers”, and automation programs that may grant you an advantage over other players. Voice Attack is OK.
  8. Do not log out in the middle of combat, i.e. combat logging.
  9. Combat is only allowed with players in RP scenarios where the PVP is consensual or expected. ABSOLUTELY NO KILL ON SIGHT (KOS) WILL BE PERMITTED. You must have voice communication with someone before you engage in combat but remember, RP over PVP when possible.

Dealing with the Police

  1. Police actions are changing from what they were. They will probably be mods and admins in the future and used mostly for props or RP purposes otherwise.
  2. Police colors for ships during RP are Blue with (optional) Red Engines/weapons | Rescue is Red with (optional) blue engine/weapons. Please only use these colors if you are a Police officer or Rescue person.

Roleplaying Specific Rules

General:

  1. Primary Roleplay will occur within the following systems: Leesti, Diso, Orrere, Orerve, and Baijungu. Outside of these systems should be treated as “The Frontier”
  2. It is strongly encouraged to roleplay the first time you meet someone. Pay attention to peoples reputations inside EDRP and not their ‘open’ reputation.
  3. If you must refer to NPCs to another commander in-game, call them “Locals”.
  4. Killing NPCs (Locals) is allowed and NOT a crime.

Rescue and Recovery:

This section will be rebuilt for a more casual style. These rules currently are obsolete.

Discord Rules

If tabbing out to use Discord is an issue, or you don’t have a second monitor, the Discord App is available for free on PC, Android, and iOS.

Make sure to run the desktop version as “Administrator” so Push To Talk will work properly.

Voice chat:

  1. All voice chat is Push to Talk only.
  2. OOC Voice Chat: Talk to people out of character.
  3. The Safeguard R&R (Rescue, Recovery, Training Ops): Lost? Broken down? Out of fuel? Need training? Go here.
  4. Voice channels of locations: RP hot spots. These are all large stations within the systems. Console users are OK to RP here as well.
  5. There are currently 5 channels for wings, should they be required. Expanded as needed.
  6. Idle Mods(Not AFK): Quiet room for mods who are not AFK but also not actively chatting. Jump in to get a mod’s attention if one is needed, or ping one.
