  1. When members and server staff unite...

    I'm going to be doing this more frequently. Members need to represent the server better. Having small meetings like this to remind everyone is good for morale. Excellent screenshot.
  2. Closed Due To Flood

    It's "equipment" by the way. Saw the struggle lol. @Street
  3. "Things you've done in the server, role-plays you've forced on to certain people are beyond disturbing." Please explain?  Also I included every detail in the conversation. Can you come on teamspeak, me and a group of members would like to speak of you. Secondly, I changed? I changed ever since the new members of administration have been out to get me. I tried contacting you and Bugs regarding this, but as always I was ignored, I even attempted contacting you on the platforms. I was ignored and told "You would get back to me." What am I supposed to do? I tried doing the correct thing prior to things escalated, and I get ignored. This is the only way people pay attention to what I have to say is when I make this all public. I understand you're a busy person, but when I havea problem with staff, and I try contacting the people in charge of staff, and they don't even help I begin to feel helpless. Aside from that, I'm past the whole reason I was suspended. I can care less on as why I was suspended anymore. I'm now angered on Dents response, I've tried to remain as professional as possible in that conversation, Sgt. Richardson even admitted to a mistake, and lifted my suspension until Dent took it into personal matters, and kept me suspended. This RP scenario wasn't even supposed to even turn into a suspension. Chris Cazz, the Trooper who assisted me on the scene, admitted to me via teamspeak, that he was joking when he gave his statement, and that he didn't realize it would lead up to a suspension, and the suspect in the scenario also contacted me saying that this wasn't supposed to extend into an out of RP situation, and spoke on my behalf to my Sergeant. We all get a little unprofessional in RP's all the time, but of course since its me and me only this had to extend into a full report and get me suspended. Maybe I could have been professional, but so could have Dent. Whenever I have a problem with someone in this community either no one cares or "I'm in the wrong" when someone has a problem with me, its a demotion, or a disciplinary action taken against me without chance to even defend myself. But this time I'm not alone, multiple community members thatI've shared this information feel the same as me, they feel Dent's response is completely ridiculous and that he was rude. And Once again I didn't leave any details out. That is the entire conversation. I was also told to demand a disciplinary hearing, and Dent said " We don't do those". I we don't do disciplinary hearings, how are we supposed to expect for anything to get resolved? Therefore I'm stuck feeling helpless and feel like I have no choice but to make this a public matter. I was wrongfully terminated because I did not violate my suspension, I didn't go on duty as police once today. This whole situation is ridiculous. Me and a large majority of community members have requested Dent be removed from his position, and replaced by someone more fit. Romaine, I have nothing personal against you. I am just upset with how I've been treated previously. This community has left me out to dry after I was demoted.

      Just like you, I work. I have a life outside of the video game. Remember when you told me that? I cannot get on TS to have a discussion with you because I am at work. This entire situation has been blown out of control by you in the matter of mere hours, the entire time I have been at work. As for passed issues, I have pulled aside the admin in question regarding it and talked to him about it. However, you're known to all admins as a frequent issue with your constant disregard to rules. Along with that, the allegation I mentioned is regarding a rape that occured on duty. It's an allegation, but that alone disgusted me that someone would even accuse you of such a thing. And, the excuse of "we all do this or that" is different for you because you're constantly doing something you should not and I'm always the one sticking up for you. The problem is that things happen behind the scenes that you're not always aware of for one reason or another, usually because I'm so busy dealing with various things that I forget to get back to you about the outcomes. This time, you went too far with your response and I can no longer defend you.

      Dent will not be removed. I needed someone who would hold this place together after Monk left, who people also wanted gone because of how strict he was. I'm tired of going in circles with this. If you don't like it, don't be a member of the state police. It's quite simple. Other departments will be emerging soon and there will be other options soon.

      Also, please stop using my name as if I'm your savior. I am happy to be the voice of reason in any situation, but you seem to always make the matter worst, then state that you're going to go to me.

      Well when I have an issue with Staff, I can't go to another member of Staff who literally has the same power or less, so my only result is to go to you or Bugs. I wasn't the one who egged monk to leave, I was honestly quite satisfied with Monk here, yes he was strict but he had a sense of dignity. Also I don't recall being involved in any rape on duty.. The only one I recall was when I kidnapped and forced to remove my characters clothing. Other than that I had no involvement in any "On duty rape". Thats another thing there been a lot of false reports against me, or some reports that are simply just exaggerated. Everyone is against Sneakie. Idek anymore... whatever. No matter what, its not gonna change anything. I'll save everyone the trouble and just stop coming on. Sorry for the problems :/

  4. Everyone,

    As of now, we are no longer enforcing the "Firstname_Lastname" rule on players. We appreciate those who have realistic names and encourage you to keep them. However, it is no longer required by rules. Thank you!

      Anyone who has a problem with a rule like this has a problem with Roleplay. Well done those few members who bitched about this so much that it got removed, you are the reason for cancer in the server.

    I'm sorry, I do not know anything about it.

Failure to do so will result in reprimand ➣ Returning to the scene of a role-play after death or arrest is strictly prohibited. Player must wait for the RP to finish before returning to the area, even if it is to "get your car" or something of the likes. ➣ In order to play as LE or FF/EMT, players must be at least the server rank of Casual Unrestricted (CU) unless otherwise permitted by the respective department heads or an administrator depending on the time of day. VEHICLE RULES ➣ The use of Torque Multipliers, Power Multipliers, or any other scripts or menu functions that would cause your vehicle to move, stop or turn at a faster pace is strictly prohibited. ➣ Using a vehicle in order to bait law enforcement officers to chase you is strictly prohibited, unless there is further realistic role-play behind it. ➣ Failure to role-play any sort of crash that you would not necessarily be able to walk away from in reality is strictly prohibited.* ➣ Firing a weapon from a vehicle without a specific role-play reason to do so is strictly prohibited. ➣ Using a vehicle originally intended for emergency services or government entities for civilian role-play is strictly prohibited, unless permitted by an administrator for that game session only. ➣ While racing is not against the rules, constantly racing and doing so in ways deemed unrealistic may very well lead to punishment. ➣ Use of ridiculous custom horns is strictly prohibited. ➣ Flying any sort of aircraft without the explicit permission of an administrator is strictly prohibited.* ➣ Use of the train, unless otherwise stated by an administrator, is strictly prohibited. OBJECT RULES ➣ Spawning of objects into the world without the explicit permission of an administrator is strictly prohibited. TS3 ➣ TS3 attendance is required for all emergency services players. ➣ Ensure that your TS3 and in-game names match and that you are in the correct TS3 channel. ➣ When role-playing as LE or FD/EMS, ensure that your callsign is appended to your TS3 name. ➣ Usage of TeamSpeak or any other voice and/or chat service to communicate with other players inside of the server without any sort of role-play regarding the contact is strictly prohibited.* * Generally, metagaming is using out-of-character information as in-character that you would not otherwise know. An example of this is using /g to get people to role-play with you at a specific location, or using your trainer to set a GPS waypoint to another player. This also includes using a player’s livestream and giving people information about a situation for them to use in-character after you’ve died. * Power-gaming is when you force a role-play to go in the direction that you’d prefer it to go, setting aside factors such as another person’s interference. An example of this would be stating that you took a police officer’s service weapon when, realistically, the cop would be able to counter such an act if feasible. * Deathmatching is when a player attacks another player for no specific role-play reason, or without any prior role-play with said other player to initiate the fact that there may be an altercation, thus giving fair warning of possible role-play to come. An example of this is when you get into a car accident. Road-rage indicates that violence is okay to occur. However, seeing a person standing on the street and attacking them with no prior RP contact because you “felt like it” is what deathmatch is. * Cop-baiting is when a player goes out of their way to make the cops interact with or chase them, typically the latter. Doing so is a violation of our rules, unless you are creating an entire RP scene out of it. An example is calling the police as someone who is not your character. There are quite a few exceptions to this rule. If you need further clarification, please consult an administrator or staff member. * Trolling is acting in a way that common sense dictates would bother, or irritate another person, usually done as a joke but is often malicious in nature. You are encouraged to stay within your character at all times. Failure to do so may result in reprimand. * Revenge killing is returning to a scene after death in order to enact your revenge, or just generally searching for the person that killed you in order to return the favor. Such an act is against the rules. Those who violate it will face reprimand. All players are to follow the "new life rule," where as you forget the thirty minutes, or entire incident, leading up to your death. This is otherwise known as a semi-character kill. * The reason for the maximum of two characters is that players often get into altercations with other players, then change their role shortly after. Once the other player finds them, they usually try to interact with them, thinking that they are still the same character. Not to mention the fact that too many characters is just extremely hard to keep up with. You also have the option to kill one character off, thus eliminating one of the characters out of two, and create a new one, thus giving you the opportunity to continue rotating new characters in and out. Please note, this is per role-play zone and does not include those who play as emergency services. You can, in those roles, essentially have three characters total. Primary RP zones are Los Santos County and Blaine County. Thus, you have a maximum of two characters per county. * While players are not required to role-play pulling out small arms, the use of any weapons requiring two hands to hold requires role-play of both picking up and putting down the weapon. Also, there must me a location nearby that you can pull it from. For instance, the inside of a house or beneath a counter. As of now, players exiting a vehicle in the heat of role-play can pull large weapons, though it is strongly encourage there is some sort of role-play there as well, even if it is short. Police Officers have weapon racks inside of their vehicles, so it makes sense where they are pulling it from while in patrol vehicles. Players should still role-play pulling guns from beneath seats, trunks, etc.. * Acting in a way that you would not see in reality is not only frowned upon, but is against our server rules. We encourage all players to act as they would in real life in a variety of situations. * As of now, since players have the ability to create characters based on the area set as the role-play zone, we strictly enforce that whatever role you are playing is realistic to the role-play zone. A poor example of this is role-playing a billionaire while driving around Sandy Shores in expensive vehicles. Considering that Sandy Shores is a desert town occupied mostly by run-down structures and mobile homes, it is unrealistic to portray such a role and players are encouraged to play the role of a local. * Here at HighSpeed-Gaming, you can truly become whosoever you would like to be, within reason. However, playing roles that facilitate deathmatching is not only frowned upon, but against our server rules. Roles such as Military, Private Military, Hitman, Serial Killer, etc. must be approved by an administrator before-hand. Otherwise, the player may face punishment. * It is necessary for all players to somewhat role-play valuing their life. An instant of this is a player being robbed by two other players at gun point. A majority of the time, a person would comply with the gunman's orders in order to try and get out of the situation alive. While this varies on a case-by-case basis, players are encouraged to use common sense and act as they would in reality if they were to have weapons aimed at them, or if they were put into a situation where they may lose their life. Also, players are to look for a way out of the situation, when feasible, such as the attacker turning their back or not paying direct attention. Failure to do so may result in reprimand. Police Officers, due to their training, may be exempt from this rule, given that there is sufficient role-play. * An example of abusing the job system is, for instance, role-playing a mob doctor, but being on duty as EMS without explicit permission from an administrator. Another relevant example of this would be acting as a bounty hunter while on duty as a police officer. Failure to abide by this will result in reprimand. * With this being a role-play server, you are expected to role-play things that can sometimes be very tedious, especially when behind the wheel. An example of this is role-play a vehicle accident. It is against the server rules to be involved in a car accident that would total a car or cause injury in realty and not role-play it. You are expected to role-play any crashes that fit said description. Failure to do so will result in reprimand. * In order to gain administrative permission to fly an aircraft, you must first have a valid RP reason to do so. Wanting to just “fly around and enjoy the sights” may not be considered an entirely valid role-play. You are expected to fly planes realistic to the role-play zone and at realistic altitudes, or face reprimand. Please note, players with the server rank of Member III (M3) and above are exempt from this rule and can fly whenever they see fit, but could be grounded by an administrator at a moments notice. Players with the aviation tag may also fly when permitted by supervisors, or based on set guidelines. All players are not permitted to role-play any sort of plane accident or crash without explicit administrative permissions. * An example of using a voice client to metagame while in the server is if you and a friend are in a Discord chat together. Your friend is getting arrested and he tells you exactly where he is and directs you to come save him. You do so, without any in-character knowledge of both their location and the fact that they’re being arrested, which is against the rules, categorized under metagaming. It is required that you, in the least, role-play using a radio or texting on your phone before portraying said information. Failure to do so may result in reprimand. Please note that there are no set punishments for any of these violations. This lies with the administrator who witnessed the rule being violated or the administrator who is handling the report overall. If you feel you are wrongly punished for any of the reprimands received as a result of violating any of these rules, simply report the administrator via the forums and the next highest administrator will help to facilitate and sort the issue. Please, be prepared to provide proof. ** By joining the HighSpeed-Gaming Server, you are agreeing to abide by the rules listed above. Failure to do so will result in reprimand ** ** These rules may be edited at any time for any reason without complete and fair warning. Remember to check this thread often **

    I have these as well, though I use a Razer Keyboard and mouse, so I use Razer Synapse. It's much more simple and doesn't require coding.
  8. So, who is down for a community meeting? I was thinking Saturday, October 28th, 2017 at approximately 1200 PST. What are your thoughts? I'd like to know before I make an official post.

    1. Pole_Ice


      I would like also to apologize for the before mentioned. Some issues have arise with the FD sometimes not taking RP into priority and this may be from newer members sometimes not knowing that it would be best to Prioritize an RP over a Scripted fire.

  9. Dear all,

    I'd like to take a moment and thank @Jay Walker and @Junkozane for doing so much to maintain the server when our script was completely failing after the move over to the new server client. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed and you will be rewarded for these actions!

    There were quite a few other admins who are worth mention such as @Jay Davidson , @W. Mark (MAGWolf). I appreciate each and every one of you. @Prospect and @Sithis and @Bxbugs123 has put in a great amount of work and has worked tirelessly in order to fix the server and it is almost restored to its former glory. As for the rest of the staff team, I appreciate all of your efforts! Keep up the incredible work!

      @D. Genovese I was unaware of that. Nevertheless, I did make a point to thank all staff members for doing what they do.

  10. This is messed up...

  11. This is messed up...

    I have increased your hours and given you some money to play with. Or, atleast, I have attempted. Please, join a server and check.
  12. This is messed up...

    Because you are not the only person who has ever had the name "Bush". Are you on the server right now?
