Official SantosRP Rules

LAST UPDATED: November 11th, 2019

Disclaimer: The rules can be changed at any time without notice. If something is not outlined in the rules, however we warrant it deserves a punishment, staff hold the right to proceed with any appropriate punishment. If something is done that indicates a clear problem within the rules, a rule will be added regarding it.

Please keep an eye on this post for updated rules! There is a link to the tutorials at the very bottom of this post, it will help you.


Click HERE for a tutorial on how to play the server


Before playing the server:

  1. Understand that this is a Garry's Mod server. Do not play expecting a completely 11/10 experience.
  2. Understand that you cannot win every situation. Sometimes you might win, sometimes you will lose. It is part of the experience.
  3. Understand that while playing this server you are to try your absolute hardest to stay in-character and to abide by the rules without ruining RP experience.
  4. Understand that Roleplay comes before Ruleplay, and every sort of Roleplay comes before Gunplay. This is not a TDM server. If you don't like that go play Call of Duty, not this server.
  5. This is a game, Have fun. Do not let other players ruin your fun.  If you feel like someone is impeding on that or ruining the server, call staff and they will be happy to help.


Very important roleplay rules:

  1. Being a toxic player will result in a 5+ hour ban without question.
    1. Talking trash to players who you killed or arrested will not be tolerated. 
    2. Players can record other players doing this and request for them to be banned.
    3. Be respectful to each other or don't play on our server.
  2. No homophobic, racist, sexist, political/religious discrimination of any kind. This is a big no-no and will not be tolerated in any way or form.


Roleplay Guidelines:


Do not start screaming about a rule break in the middle of a Roleplay Situation.

Do not start screaming about calling staff within a Roleplay Situation.

Wait until after the situation is over to get your problems out to staff, or simply send staff a message during the situation and let STAFF MEMBERS handle it.

Do NOT play music or sounds through your mic. There are no exceptions to this, if the sound is not coming from an item on the server then it will be considered micspam.

You are not allowed to use crafting tables (Gunsmith, Assembly, and Crafting) on properties you don't own.


Random Death-Match (RDM) - A player randomly kills other players without valid reasons or initiation.

Vehicle Death-Match (VDM / CDM) - A player uses his vehicle to (normally on purpose) kill other players with no liable reason or initiation. If hit while standing on the road this is your own fault. This does not include hitting someone with your vehicle to ragdoll them.

No Intent to RP (NITRP/Minging) - Trolling, Not Roleplaying and Baiting are all forms of “NITRP”.

  • Do not use Discord to relay information to your friends from an RP Situation. They MUST be standing next to you or being involved with the situation from the start to be able to take any sort of action.
  • Our Official TeamSpeak 3 server is the ONLY valid Communications players can use "In-Character"

Combat Logging (CLOG) - Combat logging is logging off or leaving the server whilst in combat or in an active RP situation

Powergaming - Forcing actions against another player without any anything to assist you or placing yourself in a position where you can not “lose”.
