Welcome to the IL-2 WarBirds FreeHost Server Rules and Guidelines page.
Players are advised to read the rules and follow them as
ignorance of the rules will not be considered as an excuse for
violation. So please read this entire page before playing on the
server or using Teamspeak3.
These rules are very basic. Mostly common sense. Their focus is
on making sure everyone has an enjoyable time. One rule of thumb
will always suffice for any situation not outlined specifically
Always treat other people exactly the way you want to be treated. Never do
anything on the server you wouldn't want to see or have done to
These 2 sentences should cover most situations.
If any player has any further queries or questions please email email@example.com
1] Foul Language
Foul Langauge will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
This includes all cussing and swearing as well as lewd and
insulting comments, vulgarity and derogartory remarks. If
players can't conduct themselves in a responsible manner then
they are not welcome to fly here. This applies to both the the
ingame chat-bar and the Teamspeak3 Server.
Being disrepectful or discourteuos to other players will not be
tolerated. Closely related to the above rule; any player who
acts in a manner contrary to this will be kicked. No name
calling, slandering or insulting other players.
Teamkilling is a bannable offence. With either limited icons or
no icons increased care must be taken to ensure that freindly
fire accidents are kept to an absolute minimum. Anybody
intentionally killing a team mate will be banned from the server
4] Kill stealing and Shoulder Shooting
Shooting "over the shoulder" of a friendly plane and "kill -
stealing" are not permitted. This is obviously a grey area in
the rules, however, given the emphasis on courtesy, respect and
good will in the above rules - this will be enforced.
5] Chat, in-game and TS
Discussing flight models, damage models, speculating on patches
and general chatter unrelated to the game is not permitted
either on comms or in the chat bar. The in-game chat bar is to
be kept free for server messages, command lines, calling for
help and organizing teamplay/support.
6] Take-off and Landings
Players are to use the taxiways and runways to get airborne and
land. Where possible the runway directions may be included in
the briefing, however under NO circumstances are players to
take-off (or land) accross the runways or on the spawn points.
Players seen risking other peoples lives will be warned about
this once only.
7] Cheating DeathKick
Players caught cheating the DeathKick by means of either:
a) disconnecting from the server to avoid a death
b) altering their player names so as to avoid
waiting the 3 minute deathban
will be warned and removed from the server on a repeat offence.
Vulching is allowed. You are allowed to vulch with all weapons -
guns, cannons, rockets and bombs. If you don't want to be
vulched; switch bases, ask if the base is clear before spawning
or landing, protect your wingmen and team mates.
9] Shooting parachutes and/or killing
pilots hanging in their chutes.
Deliberate shooting of parachutes and/or the pilot hanging in
the chute, is not permitted. In order to give players who join
the WarBirds server an enjoyable time and to emphasise on
courtesy, respect and good will anyone offending this rule will
be banned from the server indefinately. Remote judgement of
offenders on this rule can only be taken into consideration when
evidence is presented to an admin by PM or e-mail.
