Introduction What is This!?'Roleplay' is more of an advanced gamemode than stand-alone gamemodes or custom gamemodes on Team Fortress 2.
Roleplay allows you to feel accomplished about yourself as you gain Money, a House, and Reputation.

Learning the HUD & Finding Your Stats
What is the HUD? The Heads Up Display, also known as the HUD or User Interface, is a visual tool used by players to see the status of various elements such as their health, ammo, etc.
Breaking Down the HUD
Located in the bottom center of the screen, these are known as Hint Messages.
These are messages that you see when you come across doors, or common events such as you viewing another player's info via looking at them
Alert Hint Text Message
Alert messages pop up with a differently colored icon and are a subset of Hint Messages.
They are important messages for server events such as money drops, stock market crashes, and other players robbing NPCs
This is the money you have in your wallet.
If you are killed by another Terrorist/Civilian, you will lose and drop all of this money.
You can deposit this money into the bank, which we'll explain how to do later
Appearing on the left center of the screen are menus, in which you will navigate by using your number keys to select the corresponding item in their list.
Money = Wallet Money ( * the Money you are carrying * )
Kills = Hours spent on server
Assists = Wage, the money you receive per minute when Deaths runs out.
The more time you have on the server, the higher your Wage
Deaths = Seconds until you receive your Wage
Score = Crime
Getting a Job
There many jobs to choose from, but only some of them actually do something.
Some of these jobs are:
RP Guide: Press E on a player and press Guide Player.
If they accepted, you get paid for giving them a tour around the server.
Thief / Robber: Press E on a person and you can pickpocket them and steal weapons from them.
Medic: Press E on a wounded person and charge them money to heal them.
Sanitation: Pick up garbage/props around the map and bring it to this location and press E on the garbage/props to earn some cash.
Hooker / Stripper: Have someone press E on you and make love with you for $250, $500, or $750.
Good way to bond with someone.
Banker: Be a banker for someone so they can deposit their money to their bank.
Bounty Hunter: If you killed someone with a bounty, you gives X times the money that the bounty gives.
Hitman: Have someone press E on you to place a hit on someone.
If you killed the target, you will earn money.
Your Inventory is an important aspect of Roleplay as it contains all the items you find and buy.
You may find important information in the inventory such as how many items you have and what they're all worth.
Using the inventory is a simple process.
Accessing Your Inventory: Hit the Y Key and type /items.
Alternatively, you may press the Reload key when your Melee Weapon is out (Can Be Disabled with /toggle command).
Then you'll see a menu on left to your screen.

Choose any item within that Category:
Now you have three options: Use, Drop, or Back to Inventory.

Drop:This will Drop the item into a small SMG ammo box that is able to be picked up by pressing E on it.
Back to Inventory:Just brings you back to your main inventory screen with all the categories.
Homes What makes MoonShade Roleplay worth playing is the fact that you can actually keep your home that you buy when you leave the server, as opposed to most roleplay gamemodes on Garry's Mod.
You'll be able to keep the home as long as you play consistently.
What Qualifies as Homes:Anything that has a door and a room that is a decent size.
It doesn't matter if it's one room, garage, or a house!

Example: /givekeys 1 person1.
/givekeys 2 person2
Removing Keys from Other Players:Just type in the chatbox: /deletekeys 1.
The number is for the slot # you gave the person keys to.
If you did: /givekeys 1 blarg, you would only need to type /deletekeys 1
Selling your Home: Approach your door

Press the Y Key
Type: /selldoorYou will receive 90% of the price you bought the home back to you.

One of the most Basic aspects of Roleplay, Vendors are NPCs who sell you items to buy in the world of Roleplay.
Buying From Vendors
To Buy from any Vendor, simply follow the steps below:
Find a Vendor
Aim at the Vendor and hit E (or your +use button)
Select the item you wish to buy
Notice the options are formatted as: Item Name - Price
Select an option: either [Cash], [Credit], or [Buy Bulk].
You will hear a sound when you bought your item, simply repeat the process to buy another item.
Note: If you have under 10 hours, you may use a friendly "Credit" feature to buy items without having to withdraw money from your Bank Account.
Important Note: Vendors will not sell items to you when you have cactus drug grams on you.
Types of Vendors:
Drugs and Plant Water
Locks and Lockbreakers
Crime and Jail
What it is: Crime is.
well crime basically.
The more illegal activities you perform, the more crime you will receive.
Once you reach over 600 crime, you're able to be arrested by the cops and be put in Jail.
When You Get It: Getting crime including but not limited to:
Killing other players
Planting, Selling, and Handling Illegal Drugs
How Much Crime do I Have?!Your crime is located on the scoreboard.
Score = Crime
Getting Rid of it: Every second you're alive on the server, your Crime goes down by 1 every second.
Note: Some items may affect this such as Crime Accelerators or Crime Reducers, which speed up the loss of crime.
How it Will Affect You: For every 800 (Subject to Change) Crime you have while you are cuffed and jailed by a cop, you get 60 seconds in jail.
The Roleplay plugin will round to the nearest whole number from crime/crimepermin(default 750)
Example: Player Joe gets jailed with 4000 Crime, he will spend 5 minutes in jail
Being a Policeman
Power of Your Knife
As a cop, your knife is used to cuff civilians with 800 or more crime.
Your knife will do 0 damage and upon hitting a civilian, their HP will be restored to full.
When someone reaches over 800 crime (score on the scoreboard), you are able to cuff them using your knife.
Another tactic used to cuff criminals is to hit them with a High Explosive Grenade, right as you pull your Knife out.
Make sure they have at least 800 crime.
This method is known as Nade-Cuffing.
You may uncuff them by hitting them again with your knife, this is known as a cuff/uncuff.
Instead of cuff-uncuffing, you probably want to jail that civilian depending on the crime they committed, such as killing other innocent civilians.
Follow the steps below to jail a cuffed civilian:
Cuff the criminal by either hitting them with your knife or holding your knife out and hitting them with a nade explosion
Press USE (E) on the player twice
OR Press USE (E) ONCE and select [Jail] on the menu indicated below:
Make sure you do not double-jail the criminal, as that will grant you a penalty
You may also want to free them, if you want to "jail-unjail", simply go to the menu that appeared when you hit E on them, go to the next page, and select [Release].
If someone kills you and when you respawn, you cannot kill them.
This is known as "NLR" (New Life Rule) also known as no revenge killing.
Cops are unable to use "rebel items" such as lockpicks, doorhacks, or cuffsaws.
To be able to get inside locked homes, cops use kickdoor.
Caution: Only use kickdoor when a criminal has a bounty (2,500 or more crime) indicated by a purple tracer.
Follow the steps below to kick down a civilian's door: Make sure you have $1,000 in your wallet
Aim at your door you want to kick open
Hit the Y key and type /kickdoor in chat
Enter their home and jail the criminal
Ranking up & Job menu differences
The job menu should look different when you are a cop, as indicated below:
Three factors determine how far until you are promoted:
Cuffs - Amount of times you have cuffed players as cop
Minutes - Amount of minutes spent as playing cop
Experience - Received per 1000 crime + 1 from jailing civilians
Promotions increase your HP, give you better weapons, and different player models.
