News and Announcements / Orange Cosmos RP 2 Release Thread
« on: April 19, 2013, 08:50:57 AM »

November 02, 2011 - The day when OCRP 1.5 was released. It’s been over a year ago since the last "version" of CG's OCRP was released.
OCRP has had many ups and downs. We've had periods with little to no players, and we've had periods where the server has been full almost 24/7; but really, the design of OCRP was getting a bit old. All of the oranges and the orange GUI was poor, and more fit for the Orange Cosmos community.

On June 16, 2012, I told Kronic to announce that OCRP2 was in the making. After a few months of rumours and leaking from a specific admin, people we're officially told about OCRP2.
Not much was announced about the game mode, we were just making it official that it was being worked on.

A little less than a year ago, I took this project upon me and started working on it. The planned release date was the 24th September. That was the first date Garry set for GMod 13 to launch. Sadly, he pushed it a month, which also gave me more time to work on OCRP2.
Sometime mid October, our HDD on our dedicated server crashed. We were not able to recover any data from it, and because of our stupidity, not much was backed up. I had to recode OCRP2 70% of OCRP2. Luckily I had all the client side code, saved on my own PC.
After bashing myself through coding everything again, we're ready. We're ready to the release of Orange Cosmos Role-play 2.

With over 150 additions to the gamemode, OCRP2 is focused around giving the gamemode what it’s always been missing. When coding OCRP1.5, it was just myself and my own ideas, plus a few from the suggestion board.
With OCRP2, a select group of administrators were put together, thrown a board for discussions and suggestions, and they had the freedom to suggest everything they've ever wanted to see in Orange Cosmos RP.


Orange Cosmos Roleplay 2 Changelog

Completely Reset
After around 2 years with the same database, it has gotten boring. Everyone had what they needed, and the economy was completely bombed to the ground.
The best choice was to reset everything with this large update.
We deeply apologize for those of you who have worked really hard to achieve what you have now, but please see this as a fresh new opportunity to start over and work your way up to the top.
Everything is now balanced as good as possible, and we hope that this way, it will all work out better.

New Design
With the new name, OCRP2, comes a fresh new design.
Everybody has gotten tired of all the oranges, and the stupid round boxes, so I thought it was time for something new.
All menus have been replaced with a clean new design, as well as the HUD has been completely redesigned as well.
Thank you very much to Vizion for the new amazing HUD he has thrown together.

OCRP2 Balanced
With a full reset of everything, everything had to be balanced so nobody would fly sky high with money in 5 days.
It has been balanced as much as possible, and hopefully, this will work out better.
Everything from some spare metal, to the veyron has been balanced to fit the economy.
All cars have also been re-priced to fit their speed and handling.

New Equip System (Weapons)
A new system for weapons has been implanted.
You will now have to equip weapons to use them.
When equipped, it will take x amount of seconds to unequip your weapon again.
When you die, you will lose all equipped weapons. If you hold the gun out when dying, you will drop it like normally.
Think before you equip a gun. Is it really needed?

New Police "Level" System
Within the police job, you can "rank" up. To start off with, nothing has been lowered. Its all as it currently was at OCRP1.5, only additions has been added.
You start off as a regular police officer with the current items like you are used to. You can still take items from the lockers and everything.
The more play time you gain, the higher police rank you get. The higher rank you get, the better service pistol you get. More damage, less recoil, more bullets in the magazine.
You also gain more bullets by default, as well as with the high police ranks, you also get a police shotgun by default as well as more ammo for that by default.

Vehicle Rental System
The new vehicle rental system supports 3 different time periods you can rent most vehicles for.
You can rent vehicles for 20 minutes at a time.
When inside of your vehicle, it will show you how long time you have left until the car will be removed.
You are not able to upgrade or respray your rented vehicle.
The license plate will also indicate that the vehicle is rented.
After the time has ran out, the vehicle will be removed and you will be notified with a hint.
You can locate the NPC to rent vehicles at the big bills hell's. Same place you purchase vehicles.

New Private Message System
To send a private message you must use your phone. Press the email logo on your phone.
It will open the PM menu. Type in a receiver and the message (use rp names).
The person will then have a message pop up on his screen, he can then read it and press "reply" to send a PM back to you.
Hints are added in case the person does not own a phone, if the name is invalid or if his inbox is "full".

Police Computer
A nice new system, that police officers can use when pressing F2 while looking at their vehicle has been implanted.
It works like a police database for searching and checking various common things.
License Plate Checks
By typing in a license plate in the correct field on the computer, it is able to find the owner of that vehicle for you.
The player is required to be on the server for you to check their vehicle, tho does not need to have their vehicle spawned.
Property Check
No more metagaming doors as an officer. Select a property in the police computer, and it will display the owner to you.
Warrant Requests
The new ability to request a search warrant using this new system. Type in the RP name of someone you want to request a search warrant for, and it will do the rest of the work for you.
If there’s a mayor, he will receive a menu popup with the request, and he can then accept it.
If there’s no mayor, but there’s a chief, he will then receive the request.
If there’s no mayor and no chief, the computer will automatically accept the request, and warrant the player right away.

Vehicles Optimized
In OCRP2 I've taken the time to go over every single vehicle script, and modify them all.
They have all been "pimped" up a bit, and they should overall be a lot better than they used to in OCRP1.5.
This means that the vehicle menu also has fully updated information about the vehicles.
None of the vehicles are 100% perfect, but i've done what I was a capable of. I'm not quite the big vehicle scripter.
The prices are based of speed, steering, acceleration and design. A BMW going 60 mph with a beautiful design, could cost more than some unknown brand going 90 mph.

Smuggle System
If you have played Harbor RP before, you will know what smuggling is about. This system is simular to the one from HRP, but still different.
The goal is to purchase illegal goods from an NPC hidden in the map. There are 4 items you can purchase, and they all have a different cost. The higher the cost, the higher the payout in the end.
When you purchase a smuggle item, it will show up in the back of your Mule. Only the mule can smuggle items, and it has to be close to the NPC when buying the goods.
You must now carefully drive to the buyer. Park up next to the buyer, speak to him, and sell the goods. It will then dissaper from your trunk.
Police can stop you from smuggling by destroying the items. To destroy it, a police officer will have to press E on the smuggle item, and it will take 10 seconds, before the item is destroyed.
Each item has a damage scale. If your car takes x amount of damage while smuggling x item, your package will blow up, blow up your car, and kill you. The item will then be lost.

Player Color System
As a new feature in GMod 13 has showed up to allow proper coloring of your player model, the system has been implemented into OCRP2.
This is an extra modification to your player, which means it doesn't overwrite the other features such as switching clothes, or changing your model.
Keep in mind that you can still use the wardrobe to swap between other clothing, but your color will only apply when you use the "Regular" dress.
If you wish to swap between colors, it costs $10,000 at the NPC. Colors you have purchased on your character in the past, does not save when you purchase a new one.
Buying a model change will just move the color over to that model instead.

New AFK System
The new AFK system is inspired by the one that HRP uses.
Instead of kicking you once you've been AFK for x amount of seconds, you will now be marked as AFK instead.
This means that you will be demoted from your job (if you have one), and you will not receive paychecks until you return.
However, if you get marked as AFK while the server is full, you will get kicked.

I'm not fully alone with this project, so there’s several people who has helped me with the development of this project.

Vizion - All the graphics in OCRP has been completely redone. This is the man behind all the amazing graphics for OCRP2. Thank you man!
TOMASAS - Heh, this guy is always in the credits. He always helps me out with issues I might stumble across, that I cannot solve myself. Thanks ;)
Jake_1305 & Noobulator - The original creators of this gamemode. I think this is pretty self-explanatory why they are on the credits :)
OwenCobs - I'd also like to stick OwenCobs here. He's been a major help, and has come up with some really smart ideas and suggestions in our private conversations. Thank you!
Kronic – Kronic has also been a major help in the last few weeks. Hes basically done all the grammar work in OCRP2, which was very much needed.

And last but not least, thanks to everybody on the alpha "team". It was nice to have a lot of people around the development of OCRP2. All the guides they've filled, all the suggestions, and all the testing of the gamemode. They've been around all the corners of the gamemode to discover as many bugs as possible.

News and Announcements / Orange Cosmos RP 2 Release Date
« on: April 15, 2013, 12:35:58 PM »

Release Countdown
04/20/2013
*RELEASED*

As mentioned in the announcement thread, OCRP2 is right around the corner.
In the previous thread, we said that we would announce a release date, as soon as I was ready.
First, we had to wait for Garry to release update 161 (as 160 was broken), and then it was just about completing the last things for OCRP2.

There's not much more to say here. I've answered any question that came up in the old thread already.
As for repeating myself on one of the questions. On the day of release, a full release thread will be posted.
This will include a full changelog changelog of basically everything that has changed for OCRP2.

Also as promised a lot of people has gotten unbanned. You can view the ban list, and check if your name is on there.
Bans shown on profiles might not be accurate yet. I'm awaiting RTLK to update the script to the OCRP2 database instead of the OCRP1.5 database.

Ban information on profiles is fully accurate as of this edit (April 18.)

If you have any questions, feel free to post them here.

News and Announcements / Orange Cosmos RP 2 Announcement
« on: April 02, 2013, 09:44:24 AM »


We're happy to announce that OCRP2 is right around the corner!
After plenty of setbacks, delays, and other miscellaneous problems the game mode is finally at a stage we consider complete.
The purpose of this thread is to give you a general idea of what to expect - the full change-log will come soon.


Reset
Around the beginning of the development of OCRP2, we decided that we would use a fresh database.
The economy, in the present time, is close to non-existent due to the exploits, insane rates of easy money making, and the fact that we're running on a database that hasn't been wiped in three years.
There are a few more reasons, but those listed are the main leads to the current, horrific economy. Regardless, too much has changed internally and porting over old information would be next to impossible.
We personally believe this will have a very positive impact on game play as well - because there's no fun if you have nothing to work for.

Donator Benefits
Benefits will remain the same - however, the numbers have been tweaked a bit. VIP will start with an extra $20,000, gold will get $40,000.
Paychecks have also been reduced quite a bit, not only for donators, but for normal players as well.

In-Game Money Donations
As much as we dislike it, in-game money donations are a large part of our revenue.
We want this to have as little impact on the economy as possible - so we'll be cutting the rates down drastically and it won't be possible to donate for money for the first 2 weeks of OCRP2.
This is being done to keep the sort of 'race' for the nicest or most cars, items, props, etc. that always happens when a new gamemode of this type is released.
Trust us when we say it'll be a lot more fun to earn your first car instead of just buying it right away on the release day.

New Forum Section
We'll be leaving our old OCRP1.5 board behind with the release of OCRP2. We've got a whole new board made, so it's not a wipe of the old boards.
Your posts in that section will remain, but players will no longer be able to see the boards.
The new board can be found here: http://www.catalyst-gaming.net/index.php?board=311.0
Nearly every rule has been changed (they will change more before release) and there is already plenty of information posted.

Content
You can find everything you need in our Downloads section.
We are currently running RP_EvoCity_V33X, so be sure to download this version if EvoCity if you don’t already have it.
In case you have already downloaded our SVN content pack, all you will have to do is update it. If there are any issues with updating it, please remove it and try to re-download it.
You are able to find help on how to install using SVN at the SVN Guide.
You will always be able to download the content by just joining the server. Everything is on FastDL, so you should get through it pretty fast.
External mirrors will also be available through the Downloads section.
I would, however, suggest that you use the SVN. The traffic on the server is going to be pretty heavy on release, so you will get through faster if you don't have to download everything.



Fast download is currently broken and is quite important for launch; therefore we do not have an exact release date yet.
Garry's Mod update #160 is supposed to fix this issue, so when that comes, you can count on OCRP2 coming as soon as possible.
Feel free to use this thread to ask any questions about whatever you would like to know.

Catalyst Gaming is now running a Team Fortress 2 server. Currently the servers is vanilla, but we're slowly gonna build upon it.
If you have any questions regarding the server, Mmmaaattt94 will probably be able to answer them.

There's not much more to say, below is the information you will need to connect to the server.

Have fun!

So I've seen this way to many times. People get confused which currency you want in almost EVERY thread there is with cash exchange.

Following the simple format below, there will be no issues anymore :)

Code: [Select]
[b][size=12pt]Cash Trade[/size][/b]

[b]I want your:[/b]
[b]For my:[/b]

[b]My exchange rate:[/b]

[b]Maximum amount I can trade you:[/b]
[b]Middleman: [/b]

[b]Extra Details:[/b]

Heres an example:

Cash Trade

I am trading my: OCRP Cash
For your: HRP Cash

My exchange rate: 2,000 OCRP Cash for 1,000 HRP Cash

Maximum amount I can trade you with my money: 100,000 OCRP Cash
Middleman: RoflWaffle

Extra Details: I've kinda lost interest in OCRP, and i really need some money on HRP to buy that amazing boat.


That's just an example. Please try to follow this guide, and there won't be any more confusion about which currency you want, and which you want to get rid of.

Thank you!

Semi-Serious Roleplaying Guide




Introduction

    With the release of OCRP2, the server has become a little more serious. This means the things you would normally get away with on the old server will get you banned here. With these changes, I will show you ways to make playing a more serious form of RP more fun. You do not have to follow everything in this guide, however it is highly recommended for the best experience in the server.


General Roleplay Etiquette

    Roleplaying is all about being realistic, building character, and having fun with your imagination, improvisation, and whatever the game supports you with. Your actions can and will influence other players Roleplay experiences. If you follow these simple guidelines to etiquette, you can help yourself as well as others enjoy Roleplaying on the server:

-If somebody interacts with you, interact back in-character (how you react depends on the situation)

-Keep things realistic.
    >Don't run just because its faster.
    >Don't ram things with your car and drive away like nothing happened.
    >Be conscious of yourself and don't do things that might get you in trouble (unless it's crime RP)
    >If you're injured, Roleplay it. Don't run around like everything is fine, even if you're only slightly injured. It's ok to call an ambulance.

-Keep the drunk, crime, mentally unstable, etc. RP to a minimum. Its ok every now and then but not constantly.

-If someone is roleplaying something, do NOT under any circumstances poke fun at them or do something that interferes with it. RP is good. Annoying people roleplaying is not, regardless the situation.



Passive Roleplaying

    Although OCRP2 provides you with a large variety of jobs and systems to play with, Passive RP is always the best form of RP. This includes things from eating lunch to relaxing in your home. These things however are usually more interesting with someone else so make friends. Making friends is not as hard as you think though. For example, you can go into Billz Bar N Grill and socialize with the other players enjoying themselves there. Maybe you and someone else there will get along with you, go for pizza, go fishing, watch the game at home, or just be buds. Here's a list showing just some of the things you can do to passive RP:

-Having lunch at BK
-Swimming at the lake
-Making breakfast in your home
-Going camping
-Going for coffee
-Going to a party
-Visiting the local bar
-Working a construction job
-Working at the local restaurant
-Cleaning homes and businesses
-Delivering pizzas


That being said, some passive Roleplay requires some sort of supporting role. Example, how can you work at a restaurant if nobody owns one? What parties will you be going to if nobody throws one. If you feel comfortable, feel free to take a supporting role for passive RP. The following list shows some things you can do to support Passive RP:

-Open a restaurant, cafe, or bar/pub
-Throwing parties
-Starting a business such as construction, advertising, or reselling products people craft
-Organizing a group of people for something such as city cleanup or showing spirit



In conclusion, Passive RP is limitless in regards to what you can do which is what makes it the greatest and most interesting form of RP available.


Situational RP

    Sometimes, shit happens, And when that shit happens, your RP skills are tested. Things like accidents, crimes not caused by you, or disasters can really test you and your ability to improvise and Roleplay realistically.

    As a bystander, you should report what you see. Call 911 if you see a crime or accident and give as much information to the dispatcher as possible. Even if you didn't see the whole thing. If there's a crashed vehicle or someone lying on the ground unconscious, call 911. Stick around if you want and if safe and realistic. Things could get interesting.

    If you're involved in an accident or the victim to a crime, you need to respond as realistically and appropriately as possible. If you crash your car into a wall, you may be left unconscious or seriously injured. Wait for someone to call for help. If nobody helps then try to call for help with regards to your physical limitations. If someone is robbing your store, remain calm. Remember what the looked like, what they were wearing, where they went and how they fled. If applicable, you can try to ward them away with a weapon, however if they have any sort of firearm, it's very risky and not recommended. If there's other people working in your store, they can try to ward the robber away.


Job Specific RP

    OCRP2 offers a large variety of scripted jobs you can do. These jobs play an important role in OCRP and you should be familiar with each one of them. OCRP offers jobs such as Police, Police Chief, Swat, Dispatch, Secret Service, Mayor, Bus Driver, Towing Specialist, Paramedic, and Firefighter. I will go over all 10 jobs and how to properly Roleplay them.


POLICE

    This is probably the most popular job offered in OCRP. As a police officer, your job is to enforce the law around Evocity, control traffic, and sometimes look into cases. As a police officer, you need to know the major laws and traffic laws and enforce them. You need to ensure everyone is safe and nobody is doing anything that might get them hurt or killed. You should memorize and use the radio codes or have a list of them on hand you can refer to quickly. The following list includes some of the tasks you may have to do as a police officer:

-Enforce traffic laws by pulling over speeders, red light runners, and reckless drivers.
-Maintaining firearms safety by enforcing the mayors firearms laws
-Blocking or redirecting traffic at an accident scene or sudden road obstruction
-Stopping crimes in progress such as robberies, muggings, domestic violence, suicide, or auto theft
-Stopping fleeing criminals or suspects by means of driving tactics or road blocks
-Transporting prisoners from the crime scene to the jail
-Reporting improperly or illegally parked vehicles to dispatch/the towing company


Some things you should consider as an officer:

-You're not immortal, get medical help when you need it
-Only draw your sidearm when you or someone else's life is being threatened
-Only use your taser if someone is not cooperating
-Only tase/shoot vehicles as a last resort. Wait at MINIMUM 5 minutes before resorting to this
-If a criminal/suspect is injured in a chase or fight, get medical help for them as soon as you have them under control, regardless how dangerous they are
-Just because you enforce traffic laws doesn't mean you are exempt from them. Drive properly.
-Not every call requires lights, sirens, and crazy driving. If you get called to a disturbance or noise complaint, just drive normally.



POLICE CHIEF

    An upgrade from the police, the chief is the master of his police. He organizes raids, large pursuits, and anything else they may require 3 or more officers. As the police chief, you are not a dispatch. The dispatch organizes police when calls and complaints come in. The dispatch will give you as the chief a task such as a drug bust or a hostage situation. It is your duty to figure out the best way to solve the situation and execute it, telling your police officers and SWAT what they need to do. Under no circumstances should you use the entire police force in a situation. ALWAYS have at least 1 officer available for other calls or patrols.


SWAT

    SWAT is also an upgrade from the police. SWAT officers are equipped with tactical equipment to give them a buff in raids, firefights, and other dangerous situations. SWAT do NOT patrol and are usually only promoted when needed. Listen to your dispatch or police chief on what you need to do and where. Don't go Rambo style. You can still get killed easily.


DISPATCH

    Dispatch is a very important role in OCRP. As dispatch, you organize the police, fire department, and ems in the city. You answer 911 calls and figure out what the situation is and send members from the 3 groups accordingly. If there's a major criminal situation such as a firefight or a hostage situation and there is no police chief, you need to organize police and SWAT accordingly. If there is a police chief, give them control and focus on the rest of the city's problems, dispatching accordingly. Here are some things you should consider as a dispatch:

-If there's a car accident, send EMS for medical support, Fire for fires or rescue, and police for traffic control. Don't underestimate the importance of these 3 roles working together
-Keep count of everyone currently on duty and what they're doing.
-Only send out what you think is needed, you can always send more people if required
-Try to keep at least 1 officer on patrol at all times
-Stay in your office, you don't need to ride around with the government officials. You have more important things to do.
-Report silly 911 calls to administration immediately. That's not needed here.

More information on dispatching can be read HERE.


SECRET SERVICE

    As secret service, your sole purpose is to protect the mayor at all costs. Dispatch or the police chief have no control over you and vice versa. You take orders from the mayor and keep him safe. Do not engage in police situations unless it involves the mayor, in which case you should be getting the mayor to safety. You are the only one who can protect the mayor. Polcie and SWAT are not allowed to take this role anymore. Just stay with the mayor, drive him around, and do as he says.


MAYOR

    The Mayor is an extremely important role in OCRP. You set the laws of the city and are the figurehead of the city. You make the big decisions and keep the economy in the green. You give the promotions of the police force and demotions of all government officials. Your decisions make or break the city. You should remain with your secret service at all times if they are available. There's no point in secret service if you're not protected by them. If you plan to attend events or travel outside, let your secret service personnel transport you and ensure the area is safe and secure. Your life is more important then theirs. If you feel up to it, you may host events in and around the city for players to attend. Keep in mind the safety of you as well as everyone else. If your event blocks a road, make sure another route is available for people to drive around.


BUS DRIVER

    As the bus driver, you basically do just that. Drive a bus from station to station properly and give time for passengers to hop on. Passengers must have a bus ticket to ride and may not tell you where they want to go. Stick to the assigned route, no detours or other stops. Stop only at designated bus stops. Under no circumstances shall you drive recklessly with your bus.


TOWING SPECIALIST

    Your job is to drive the tow truck and move cars as needed. Dispatch may tell you where to go or someone might directly call you, asking for a tow. Don't charge people for a tow. You have service lights, however ONLY turn them on while towing a vehicle. They are not emergency lights, thus you do not have the right to bypass traffic laws or force people to pull over.


PARAMEDIC

    As a paramedic, your job is to respond to medical related calls and standby at events/situations when requested to do so. Things you might respond to are shootings, falls, vehicle and pedestrian collisions, fires, and injured patients. You might also be requested to standby at events where injuries are high such as destruction derby's or races. You might also be requested to standby for the police at hostage situation or raids. You should take the following list into consideration when playing as a paramedic:

-Do not patrol, ever.
-Report over the radio when responding to any call.
-Drive safely when driving emerg. Two accidents is much worse then one. If it means slowing down when driving near traffic or through red lights then do so.
-If someone wants to injury rp then please rp along with them
-When not on a call, hang out at the station or passive RP at restaurants or stores around town, just ensure your ambulance is close by


FIREFIGHTER

  Firefighters are similar to Paramedics in regards to how to play the job. Instead of responding to medical calls though, firefighters are required to respond to fire calls and in some cases, rescue calls. Firefighters should respond to vehicle collisions for fire control and rescue. If needed, you may be required to respond to a safety call where you examine a structure for structural and fire safety. Some things you should keep in mind:

-Don't patrol, ever.
-Report over the radio when responding to any call.
-Drive safely and carefully, especially when responding to a call. A firetruck is large and can do a lot of damage. Do not push cars out of the way.
-Don't start fires because you're bored
-Hang out at the fire station when not on a call. Try not to take the truck with you to local businesses if you don't have to. Since the fire station is in town, you can just walk.
-Only use your axe to bash doors down to get to a unreachable fire.


Conclusion

    The new server is semi-serious. Try to adapt to the changes. Just because it's semi-serious doesn't mean you cant play full serious. Don't expect everyone to respond full serious, however anyone who isn't able to Roleplay at even a semi-serious level should be reported to administration immediately. Go play, have fun, and remember, imagination is the base to RP.

Guides / [OCRP2 Offical Guide] - Guide to barricading
« on: January 14, 2013, 09:18:29 AM »
OwenCobs Guide to barricading on OCRP2.

When basing on OCRP2 you will most likely set up a small construction to protect yourselves from potential raids. There are certain ways to do this and some could get you banned so watch out. Below will be a small example of a good and a bad barricade.

Firstly, Doors
It states in the rules that there must be at least one easy access route into your house for raiders. Blocking your doors like this:
Click to see the original size.
Is not allowed because it would be the only access point to the house & by blocking it you are breaking the propblock rule. If there are multiple doors in your building it is acceptable to prop block as many as you wish providing that you leave one access point open

Secondly, Climbing

It also states in the rules that you are not allowed to climb on floating props to gain access to a previously unacceptable place because that is called "Prop climbing". Below is an example of how not to climb up a fence in a raid.
Click to see the original size.
The reason that this is disallowed is because in reality you can't defy gravity to gain access to an area, you use the below method.
Click to see the original size.
This is allowed because you are using a realistic method to gain access to in this case the garden of subs 2.

Thirdly, Hitbox's and Bunkers
You are required by the rules of OCRP2 to provide a sufficient gap in the shooting areas you provide in your cading.
A to small gap is to much overpowered and doesn't give the raiders a fair chance. Below are pictures as example.

Below is how NOT to put up a bunker.
Click to see the original size.Click to see the original size.
The reason this is disallowed is clearly because you cannot see the person shooting you therefore making it virtually impossible to raid. The below example is how to do this.
Click to see the original size.Click to see the original size.
This Is Allowed because it would be an even playing field, you can see just as much as the person raiding can see meaning it's just as likely to kill him as it is for him to kill you. This prime example you can see provides sufficient space for the attacker.

A hitbox barricade is abusing your players hitbox and camera POV (Point of view) by building a barricade at that particular height so your characer's model is completely hidden behind the barricade while your camera POV can still look over it, which means you can shoot and kill over the barricade while the raiders cannot even see you.

Below are a few examples of hitbox abusing which is not allowed:
Click to see the original size.
In this picture you can easily see the raider (red arrows) while he can not see you (yellow arrows). Hence this is not allowed.
Click to see the original size.Click to see the original size.
In this picture you can see just above the barricade while your actual model is completely hidden behind it. This is also not allowed.

Next, Entry
Entry to your property has to be simple and possible to attack from, Below is a good example of how not to cade.
Click to see the original size.
Reason this is not allowed because of the diversion. You can shoot them whilst they cannot shoot you. The hitbox rule has been breached as you have more chance of killing them than they do you due to the unfair gap you provided in this example. Also another thing is that the diversion means they have to look away to get in meaning turning their backs to the people shooting that provides an unfair advantage to yourselves.

Below is a good example because the positioning of the concrete barriers act as the only obstacle which can be both hidden behind and jumped over providing an even playing field.

DISCLAIMER: DO NOT USE THIS TO STUDY FOR A REAL DRIVERS LICENCE! EACH STATE/PROVINCE/COUNTRY HAS DIFFERENT LAWS AND MAY DIFFER FROM THESE!







Traffic Lights and Signs


This means stop. If you are in the right lane however, you can make a right turn only after you have checked it is safe to do so.


This means the light is about to change red. If you have not committed yourself to going through, prepare to stop. Committing to go through means you are too close to the light to safely stop.


This means you can pass through the intersection. If you are making a left turn, ensure there are no oncoming vehicles.

Pedestrians
If you are at a marked crosswalk, only enter it when it is safe to do so. If you are at a light, only cross in front of red lights. If you fail to follow these guidelines, not only is it illegal but you are at a greater risk of being struck by a vehicle and you will be at fault.


Signs

Before reaching the intersection, come to a full and complete stop. If its a four way (+) intersection, the first person there has the right away. If there is more than one car or 2 cars come at the same time, the person on the right has the right away. If it is a T intersection, the through road has the right of way (the _ of the T )


This means slow down and be prepared to stop if there is an oncoming vehicle or pedestrian.

This means never enter that area with a vehicle

This means do not turn around 180 degrees on the street.





There are various other signs but they are self explanitory for they have words on them.



Rules of the Road



Pedestrians

Respect the right-of-way of pedestrians.

Stop for pedestrians crossing at crosswalks or when they properly cross at lights.

Do not pass a vehicle that has stopped at a crosswalk. A pedestrian you can not see may be crossing.

Do not drive on a sidewalk, except to cross it at a driveway or alley. When crossing, yield to any pedestrian.

Do not stop in a crosswalk. You will place pedestrians in danger.


Speed Laws

Never drive faster then the cited speed limit. If weather or road conditions is bad, drive as slow as necessary to be safe.

Speed Limit

Never drive faster then the cited speed limit. If weather or road conditions is bad, drive as slow as necessary to be safe. Excessive speed increases your stopping distance and control of the vehicle which could result in an accident.


Traffic Lanes

Line Colors

Solid lines or solid double lines means you may not pass in that area. Exceptions include passing accident scenes if safe to do so.

Broken lines mean you may pass if it is safe to do so.

Changing lanes

Before changing lanes, unsure nobody is in or coming up beside you in the other lane before moving.

   -Check traffic behind and beside you.


Turning




Legal U-Turns

A U-turn is turning your vehicle around in the street to go back the way you came. To make a U-turn, use the far left lane or the center left turn lane. You may make a legal U-turn:

Across a broken line when it is safe and legal.
_________

- - - - - -      <-- Example of broken line
_________

In a residential district:

    -If there are no vehicles approaching you within 200 feet.

    -Whenever a traffic sign, light, or signal protects you from approaching vehicles.

    -At an intersection on a green light or green arrow, unless a “No U-turn” sign is posted.


Parking


Never park on a crosshatched parking zone

Illegal Parking

Never park or leave your vehicle:

    -Where a “No Parking” sign is posted.

    -On a crosswalk, on a sidewalk or partially blocking a sidewalk, or in front of a driveway.

    -In a tunnel or on a bridge, except where permitted.

    -Within 15 feet of a fire hydrant or a fire station driveway.

    -On the wrong side of the street.


Emergency

Emergency Vehicles

If you see or hear an emergency vehicle, whether it's in your lane or not, pull over and out of its way. Unless you're in an intersection. Then pull over at the other side. If you have a green light and see/hear an emergency vehicle, allow the vehicle to pass first.

Yield to Emergency Vehicles Always

Never follow or pass an emergency vehicle running light and sirens.



Emergency Vehicle Oprators

In a high priority emergency, you must use all lights and sirens when within city limits. Once you reach the outer parts of the city, you may turn off the siren if there are no vehicles or intersections nearby, however turn them back on when within 200 feet of another vehicle or intersection.

Slow down when approaching intersections and if the light is red or you have a stop sign, be sure the intersection is clear and safe to cross. Change the siren (push alt) when within 200 feet of an intersection. Avoid using the opposite lane if at all possible.

Response speeds

When responding to a true emergency, it is advised you only drive 10 above the posted speed limit. If road conditions or visibility is reduced, you may have to drive at or lower then the speed limit.

Guides / [OCRP2 Official Guide] - Job Definitions
« on: September 09, 2012, 11:47:12 AM »
So you just joined a government job? Not sure what to do? Well, this guide will help you to what you are suppose to do for each job.


RP_EvoCity_V33X~ Current Map

Police Officer
As a police officer your job is to keep the streets clean from minor criminals. You patrol for speeders, or stand by waiting for chases or police raids. When a chase is going on, please check with the other officers if more officers are needed. it's dumb if 5 police cars are chasing some atv for crossing a red light. Keep in mind that as a police officer, your job is NOT to protect the mayor. We have others doing that.

Paramedic
Your job as a paramedic is to stand by at most times. Theres a hospital located outside of the town. This is the same place you gain your vehicle, and job. This is the location you would standby at. Wait for calls where you are needed, or let people walk up to you and ask for health. You are not allowed to charge money for healing people.

Fire Fighter
Firefighters are on standby most of the time. You do NOT patrol as a firefighter. Theres a fire station located in the city. Have your vehicles parked there at all time, when you are not going out to turn off a fire. Do not park on the sidewalk inside the city and sit there. Respond to calls and then return to your fire station.

Tow Truck Driver
As a tow truck driver you are supposed to tow cars. Only tow cars that are not properly parked. Because a car is parked a LITTLE bit on the sidewalks, don't freaking tow it. If a car has broken down, tow it to the repair lady at the industrials. If a vehicle is being towed, and is not broken, just wrongfully parked, please tow it to the tow station in the industrials, and just park it in the huge spot you have there.

Police Chief
As a police chief you are in charge of the police force. That means you are in charge of the regular police officers. In OCRP2 its very important that the police chief does his job, and does it good. You are in charge of sending units to different situations, and make sure that the entire force doesn't go to one situation, so that the streets are left empty. You work together with the dispatcher, the difference is that you are in the field, and he is not.

SWAT
As a part of the SWAT force, you are standby inside nexus. You ONLY do police raids that require heavy armed men and you can be called by the bodyguards if the mayor requires your help. In OCRP2 you do no longer protect the mayor when you are on standby. This is now the bodyguards job.
You go out to police raids if the police chief requires SWAT help. If there is no chief, listen to the police force and consider if you are needed.

Bodyguard
A body guard is somebody who stands by the mayor at all times, your job is to protect the mayor at all costs and never let him come into any danger. Your job is NOT to assist the police force it is purely to help the mayor in any possible way, you may not assist in raids, if you are near one then your priority would be to remove the mayor from that area at once.

Dispatcher
As dispatch, you sit in the dispatch office (wherever you want it to be) and answer 911 calls. You should also organize the government officials in regards to who responds to what call. Don't send the entire police force to chase after a single speeder. Let government officials know about situations you receive as 911 calls and decide who should be dispatched. Don't walk around the city or 'patrol' with other officers while dispatching.

Keep in mind that as a police officer, your job is NOT to protect the mayor. We have others doing that.

Paramedic
Your job as a paramedic is to stand by at most times. Either at the BP parking lot, or at the KFC. Wait for calls where you are needed, or let people walk up to you and ask for health. You are not allowed to charge money for healing people.

Fire Fighter
Firefighters are on standby most of the time. You do NOT patrol as a firefighter. Standby outside of town perhaps, or maybe purchase the watertreat plant and build a fire station there. Do not park on the sidewalk inside the city and sit there. Respond to calls and then return to your standby station.

Tow Truck Driver
As a tow truck driver you are supposed to tow cars. Only tow cars that are not properly parked. Because a car is parked a LITTLE bit on the sidewalks, don't freaking tow it. If a car has broken down, tow it to the repair lady behind the car dealer, else you are supposed to tow it to a real parking lot if its parked like in the middle of the streets. The BP or the KFC are good places to park them then.

Police Chief
As a police chief you are in charge of the police force. That means you are in charge of the regular police officers. In OCRP2 its very important that the police chief does his job, and does it good.

News and Announcements / OCRP1.5 Exploiting Issues
« on: August 30, 2012, 11:43:51 AM »
So lately, theres been a lot of trouble with this "trading" exploit. People using a console command to trade items that they don't even have.

The issue falls long back to the original developers, who never really got around to adding some simple checks onto their code to prevent people from trading items they do not have. Thanks to Shriio, the issue has now been located, and solved.

A lot of people have used the exploit, as well as an admin. They have (most likely), all been punished with a permanent ban. A few decided to make dumb appeals saying its our fault for having shitty developers. Its not. Its your responsibility if you exploited this, and you should have informed me or another developer about the issue.

The few of you who made those dumb appeals, you will stay banned. The rest that got banned for this, but thought all hope was now out, can make an appeal, and you will have your account reset.

This announcement is more like a message to those of you who might still have exploited, but have not been caught yet. I will be go over the 20 pages of accounts over the next few days, and banning people who have exploited this. If you want to turn yourself in, please send me a PM on the forums. Anyone banned for this exploit, AFTER this post, will not have the chance to appeal it and get reset. I've also added admin logging for those who tries to exploit again. Trying to exploit will end up in me adding you on Steam for a little chit chat. Try to avoid that, please?

The exploit does NOT work anymore, so please don't waste your, nor my time.

Thank you.

Guides / [OCRP2 Official Guide] - Getting help from admins in-game
« on: August 25, 2012, 09:19:45 AM »
Requesting an admin (/a)
When in OCRP2 you can request an admin to assist you by using the /a command. This shows up in bright blue text so there is no excuse for an admin to not see it but please do not spam this as it can become very annoying whilst admins are dealing with other issues. If you just complain over OOC then you may not receive help you may instead receive a warning.

Be Polite
It is essential to be polite and calm towards admins whilst they are trying to piece together your scenario and issues at that moment in time. Shouting and abusing a member of staff who's job is to assist you is not wise and you may just get in trouble yourself for flaming and all the time you spend arguing or being impolite could be used gathering evidence towards your problem.
 
Detail
In a nutshell, we cannot help you if you do not give enough detail. If you just say "RDM" Or "I'm stuck" we cannot help you in any way due to lack of information. As an example, Where are you stuck? Who is RDMing you?  If you was just to say "I'm stuck in the garage then we can come straight to you and assist you or if you say I need assistance at bp then we have all the information to find you and solve your problem. Just a bit of detail can't hurt.

Admins can't be everywhere at once.
Please remember this, from an admins point of view we get about a message a minute with issues and we can't help everybody at once so please if we don't come straight to you then be patient but if you don't see anything for 5 minutes ask again and somebody will be at your assistance. Another things you could do is record what is going on as admins can't see everything which is going on at one time so if you have been rdm'd then record it and make a ban request which you can send ingame from the new OCRP2 Ingame ban request system that allows you to post directly onto the forums.

Petty arguments between players
So many times I have pulled two people up on to the apartment roofs to talk about something which is troubling them and the two people just won't be quiet as they are far too busy shouting death threats at each other. The admin requires both sides of the storywithout interruption so they can ask questions and make an unbiased decision. If you sit there arguing then there is no chance of the admin being able to help you and may simply just leave the situation as it is and put you down because you are being unreasonable towards them whilst they could be helping others.

Giving evidence towards your case
All you require to get a demo if the ingame data is to open console with the ` button on a windows keyboard & type "record <name>", I would say use a relevant name so you can look back on it such as "Record OCRP_9_9_2011" So include the date etc. All this can later be recorded with third party software such as Fraps or Xfire and can count as evidence for a ban request as most admins will not take the source demo as it is.
Please remember to type in "status" in console to get the players SteamID because this will be required in the ban request otherwise it will simply be denied.
