I hope you are as hyped as our management! We're really looking forward to having our own unique game mode as we're making progress every day.

If you haven't joined our Discord server yet, I highly recommend you to do so. You have the chance to actively be part in our roleplay discussions, deciding and suggesting new features.

Announcements / An insight of the now
« Last post by Eggsy on May 04, 2019, 12:13:14 AM »

Hello from the Management!

It's time for us to give our (yet) small community an insight into what we've done so far regarding scripts and what we plan to complete in the near future until the date of the soft launch. The considerable development team has developed the core scripts including vehicles, housing, login & character creation, custom objects & textures, punishment system, interaction system, inventory system, combat system, and last but not least chat system. All of these scripts are more or less 80% done. What we plan on doing once these are fully completed are things varying from factions system, drugs system, furniture system, skills system, business system, panels for moderation and support, and a couple more things.

Regarding mapping, we have decorated and detailed all of the towns in Red County just enough to make them charming yet not messy and overloaded. What the mapping team is working on now are the interiors for the housing, hallways, businesses, governmental buildings, commercial buildings, etc.


We are also carefully developing the community, which varies from developing factions to maintaining discussions regarding general roleplay subjects. Most importantly we need all of you to keep up the good work on the parts you are contributing in. Keep in mind that SAC is all of you and without you, there would be no SAC. So hopefully this insight has given you a handful of motivation.

A trailer will be filmed and produced and released in only one month for a sneak peek of what we have to offer. Not only will we show you our first sneak peek, but we will also announce our release date!

Eggsy,
On behalf of the SAC:RP Management

SAC:RP Rules / Discord Rules [Updated: 12-04-2019]
« Last post by Paschi on April 10, 2019, 02:39:50 AM »

Discord is SAC:RP's main communication source, alongside MTA itself. To create and preserve a good atmosphere, we have established five rules which we call the Discord's Five (no, not the Jackson Five. You can read the rules below, or find them in #information.

1. Show respect to each other.
You're allowed to have fun and insult as long as both sides are having a good laugh. Homophobia, religious hatred, racism, and discrimination will get you banned. Think twice before you send something risky.

2. Do not spam or flood channels with useless content.
Nothing is more annoying than people who spam content, such as text or images. Avoid being an annoying fool.

3. English is the main language of SAC:RP. Avoid speaking any other language.
In case this was unknown to you, the main language of SAC:RP is the English language. Speak it anywhere in the server, also on Discord.

4. Do not share illegal links/pictures or NSFW content.
Sharing illegal links, pictures or just NSFW content is highly forbidden. We are a player-friendly community, and we care about each other. Do not lead people to illegal websites, and do not show NSFW content (we are not talking about some good laughter on the field of tricky memes). #memes is excluded but keep out videos about death & extreme gore

5. Do not deliberately lie or spread wrong information and rumors.
You don't want people to spread lies or wrong information about you, so don't do it to others.

Guides & Tutorials / Common English mistakes
« Last post by Mathi on March 30, 2019, 02:22:03 PM »
They're vs. Their vs. There
One's a contraction for "they are" (they're), one refers to something owned by a group (their), and one refers to a place (there).
They're your coworkers.
Their dog ran off yesterday.
She was standing right there.

Your vs. You're
The big difference between the two of those is owning something or being something.
Your being possessive and owning something, examples could be: your name, your car, your house.
You're is a contraction of "you are" and being something, examples could be: you’re beautiful, you’re smart, you’re welcome.

Its vs. it's
Once again we're dealing with something possessive and a contraction.
In this case "its" is possessive and "it's" is a contraction of it is.
This often confuses people because "it's" has an 's after it, which normally means something is possessive, but in this case, it's actually a contraction.

To vs Too
To is commonly used before a noun or verb, in order to describe a destination, recipient, or action. Examples could be:
My friend drove me to my doctor's appointment. (Destination)
I sent the files to my boss. (Recipient)
I'm going to get a cup of coffee. (Action)
Too however, is used as an alternative to "also" or "as well." Examples could be:
My colleague, Mathi Gorbachev, writes for the HubSpot marketing blog, too.
She, too, is vegan.
We both think it's too cold outside.

Who vs. Whom vs. Whose vs. Who's
Who is used to identify a living pronoun.
Who ate all of the cookies?
Whom is usually used to describe someone who's receiving something, like a letter.
Who did we hire to join the podcast team?
Whose is used to assign ownership to someone.
Whose sweater is that?
Who's is used to identify a living being and is a contraction for "who is."
Who's pitching for the Red Sox tonight?

Lose vs. Loose
Lose is a verb that means "to be unable to find (something or someone), to fail to win (a game, contest, etc.)
Loose is an adjective that means "not tightly fastened, attached, or held," like loose clothing or a loose tooth.

Then vs. Than
Then is mainly an adverb used to situate actions in time.
We made dinner, and then we ate it.
Than is a conjunction used primarily to make comparisons.
My dinner was better than yours.

Of vs. Off
Of is used to show that people or things relate to other things or people.
He resigned his position as a member of the school board.
Of can also be used to say that something consists of something else.
She likes to drink a glass of milk before going to bed.
Off is the opposite of on.
The radio was on, but she needed peace and quiet so she turned it off.
Off can also be used when we want to say that something is away from a place.
He was walking his dog without a leash, and the dog ran off.

Guides & Tutorials / Usage of Country Flags
« Last post by Mathi on February 20, 2019, 08:13:20 PM »
As we have added a mod to the forum that allows you to make little country flags on your posts, I have been so kind to list every single country with their flag and abbreviation down for you, so that you can quickly find the correct abbreviation for the country flag you want to use.
In case there is a country missing which you think shouldn't be missing, please do contact me about it.

To use the flag, write [flag]XX[/flag]. The XX should be replaced with the country's code, which can be found below. ;)

SAC:RP Rules / Forum Rules [Updated: 09-03-2019]
« Last post by Paschi on February 19, 2019, 08:05:30 PM »

San Andreas Counties Roleplay is a place where everyone is welcomed and treated equally. To ensure that, we have a set of rules that need to be respected and not ignored.

1. Respect all other players of this community, no matter their race, age or sex. We aim to keep this community a safe and friendly place for everyone, without being exposed to excessive insults or bullying. This includes but is not limited to homophobia, religious hatred, racism, and discrimination.
   a. Harsh insults are prohibited. Harsh insults may be directed to family members, personal issues or other individual-related matters.
   b. Simple insults are fine as long as they are not repeated several times in a short duration in order to bother someone. Simple insults such as "fuck you", "gtfo" and "stfu".
   c. Do not structurally harass or provoke other players for whatever reason.
   d. Do not threaten players or use any information against their will. Also, do not scare players by saying that they are breaking a rule, let staff deal with that.
   e. As long as both sides are having a good laugh, you may joke with your friends unless you bother other players.
---> Posts will be removed and player will be verbally warned. In the case of repeated offending, the player will be warned for 15% per post depending on the severity. The player can be banned for 14 days for excessive offending.

2. Use your brain and common sense before posting and think twice before submitting a post. Read the corresponding rules and/or tutorials when submitting a post in a specific board.
---> Punishment depends on the corresponding rule ranging from a trivial offense which will get you a verbal warning to light (15%) and medium (30%) offenses.

3. Do not spam the forum with irrelevant or useless posts.
   a. Do not double/triple posts. Use the 'modify' button of your previous post instead.
   b. Do not flood someone's private inbox and have patience if the administration team does not respond within a few minutes.
   c. Do not post in topics you are not supposed to involved in/post in.
---> Posts will be removed and player will be verbally warned. In the case of repeated or excessive offending, the player will be warned for 15% per post.

4. SAC:RP is an English community, so all posts have to be in the English language. Foreign language boards are excluded, however, you are still allowed to talk English there as well as long as you do not bother players.
---> Posts will be removed and player will be verbally warned. In the case of repeated offending, the player will be warned for 15% per post.

5. Illegal content such as programs, links or pictures should not be shared. Most of these websites give users a bad experience like viruses. In case you do not trust a website, do not share it. This also includes advertising for other websites or servers.
---> Posts will be removed and player will be banned for 7 days.

6. Do not post any NSFW content such as pornography and gore/snuff films and pictures.

   c. Dishonesty and deliberately lying in your posts is not allowed.
---> Posts will be removed and player will be verbally warned. In the case of repeated offending, the player will be warned for 15% per post.

8. Make use of the right category/board when submitting a post. Watch carefully if it's IC, OOC or any other off-topic related board. Screenshots should be placed between brackets (( )) since they are OOC.
---> Posts will be removed and player will be verbally warned. In the case of repeated offending, the player will be warned for 15% per post.

9. Multi-accounting is prohibited. Do not create more than one account, because you simply do not need to have more.
---> The oldest account will be banned for 21 days. All other accounts will be removed.

Information / Server Administration
« Last post by Nicholas on February 19, 2019, 12:37:03 PM »

San Andreas Counties Roleplay has a varying team of developers, moderators, and administrators. Without this team of great and warm-hearted staff members, the server would not come close to what we are aiming for: applying the highest quality on the field of realism and roleplay. Being a staff member is equal to being a role model. That is one of the many reasons why a staff member is required to perform their duty in a decent way and behave like a role model.
