SCREAMING DAYZ RULES


DayZ Standalone is an open world which is ever changing and it would be impossible for us to spell out every situation or scenario that might happen to you and what you are allowed to do in that given situation. If you are unsure that what you’re doing is within the rules or against the rules, be sure to ask a member of our staff team.
Most of these rules are common sense. We have some tolerance for ignorance (but not much) and if a moderator or administrator suspects that you're knowingly breaking the rules, you WILL be punished without warning.


DISCORD RULES

SCREAMING DAYZ RAIDING RULES
This is a PVP/Money Making/Base Building and Base Raiding Server. 

This means it is HIGHLY probable that someone at some point is coming for your shit. We have tried to make our building system “slightly” in favour of the Builder. So build your base properly and raiding it will be difficult.
-RULE NUMERO UNO. Record your raid.  At the very least record the breaching of each door/wall/floor or roof. You need to be able to PROVE you didn’t glitch into their base.
-The GOAL of raiding is to get the other teams STUFF. Not to totally destroy their lives.  

-Do not grief a another players base.  E.g. Pulling items out of storage and just leaving them on the ground to despawn.
-Raiding needs to be done in a realistic way. No item stacking, floating objects and/or dismantling through walls/objects. You can use Buddy Boosting (standing on a friend's head) and/or vehicles to get over walls and into bases that are not secured with a roof.
-You can NOT use or build up any parts to enter a base.
-You can not take over someone else's base unless you have dismantled ALL doors and have access to ALL rooms.


SCREAMING DAYZ BASE BUILDING RULES
To be clear we will use the definition of 1x1 to mean a single Screaming DayZ wall/floor/roof or door module/kit.
-Bases must be realistic. No sky bridges. If your base is floating past more than two 1x1’s in length, unsupported, it is not realistic.
-No building on bridges.
-No building/blocking main roads.  (Sealed).
-No building within 500m of large Military Base's outer buildings.  
-No building within 250m of small Military Bases.   (If unsure contact a staff member).
-No building within 1000m of the Trader Safe Zones.  Altar,  Bor,  South Sinistok and Klen.
-No building in police stations, prisons, black markets, or other high-tier loot locations such as oil rigs and barracks.
-A Base MUST always have a way of entering available; an unobstructed door or a gate. No using tents to block base entrances in houses/buildings.
-Free-standing player-made buildings can be fenced in, but must not exceed one wall length in distance from said structure.


COASTAL PAs:
No music, no building/blocking.
INLAND PAs:
