4.6 A fundamental obligation of the administrator is tracing of violations of these Rules.
4.7 The administrator is the principal person on the server and should to be an example of legality!
4.8 The administration has the right to punish players following, depending on the priority and severity of the offense: a warning, a fine of up to 10% of the player's experience, a fine in-game currency, kick, ban temporary ban permanent.
5.1. It is obliged to support a game so that it met requirements of most of players concerning operation of the server.

5.10 It is obliged to inform players on essential changes of the Rules of the game, and also to give an opportunity to get acquainted with them (by output of the link to this document published on the website of the game project).
Behavior of the player in the special game zones (a trade zone, a respawn-zone, a kraft-zone).
6.1 The trade zone is the special place intended for sale and purchase of game objects and transactions with personal goods and real estate of the player in the virtual world of the game. It is designated by a "covers" symbol from a can of soft drink.
It is impossible to shoot in a trade zone, because laws of physics of a game are changed here so that any weapon doesn't harm. Player avatar doen`t suffer from collision with mecanisms, but damage and destruction of the mecanism by other mecanism or buildings still possible.
Thus, its prohibited by the Rules (#3.12) damage of the mecanism of players in the trade zone.
Preventing of a camping in a trade zone and murders of the players who just left it within 1 minute after an exit from a trade zone the player is impregnable for the opponent's shots, but also itself can't use firearms.
6.2 Respawn-zone – a zone of appearance of players (it is designated by a symbol of a "children's soother"). This is a zone of appearance of the player on the map after death of his avatar. In this zone you can act as in the regular game territory, except one – it is impossible to be constantly in it for the purpose of murder of just appeared avatars of other players (camping-base).
Remember that fair play is a game versus player adequately armed, but not versus his defenseless avatar. Murder of "newborn" doesn't bring any honor, and will be punished up to a fixed ban.
Certainly, in case of a meeting of 2 "newborn" avatars in such zone there are no restrictions for murder, but after disembarkation such players are obliged to leave this zone as soon as possible.
If the player travels around this zone for the purpose of game "Loot's" collection, he shall abstain from firing at recently appeared players, opening fire only in response to aggressive actions of the others.
6.3 Kraft zone – a zone of construction works (it is designated on the map by a "concrete mixer" symbol). You can act there as well as in a respawn-zone. Continious presence in it for murdering players who arrived to this zone for construction works (camping zones) is forbidden.
In the rest, the behavior of the player in such zone doesn`t differ from the regular game map.
7.1 The base of the player is the artificially constructed fixed structure in a game in which the player can store the things and the personal estate without risk to lose it in case of reset of the server and periodical map-cleaning.
7.2 Accessory of the base to the player affirms and supported by two processes:
7.2.1 Installation of a flag. Before a construction of the base the player buys at office of administration (the second floor of a terminal facility central a trade zone) a flag in the form of a wearable adjusting packet. The flag is set in the place permitted by Administration to installation of base (see ## of The Rules 2.4, 2.8, 3.16, 3.21, 3.22, 3.23).
7.2.2 Protective payment of Administration (at office a trade zone) is an amount for the right of operation of the base (it is paid once a week, not an accumulative mode!). This payment is provided by game process of Exile and is performed by exclusively game currency in strictly established sizes, estimated in the form of a payment amount for each element used in the base and its exclusively voluntary operation performed by the player. If the player didn't pay lease of the territory after a lease termination time, the base with all the propertyconnected to it (safes, boxes, virtual garage) will be removed without posibility of recovery with all its content from the game world.
7.3 Order of construction of base.
7.3.1 The choice of the place for the base. The right choice of the place is very important. In case of abuse of regulations of its construction and operation the Administration of the Project will be forced to remove such base from the game world. Therefore, it is extremely desirable to get permission of Administration for this before begining of construction.
Location of the base is regulated by ## 2.4, 2.8, 3.16, 3.21, 3.22, 3.23 of The Rules.
7.3.2 Beginning of construction of the base. Building of the base begins with installation of a flag of base (flagstaff). The flagstaff will be the center of radius of the base in which is authorized the construction and a binding to each other of elements and designs of the base. Outside of this radius the elements of the base aren't established.
7.3.3 In case of construction of the base any method of its protection is permited, including protection against unauthorized penetration on it during absence of the player, a trap, a mining of the territory, antiglich-texture, anti-tank hedgehogs, etc.
7.3.4 In the time of a the construction of the base is recommended to consider that in case of fetch a mecanism inside the building it is ALWAYS oriented on an axis the South-North, i.e., appears after reset of the server with the face oriented to the north.
7.3.5 In case of construction of the base it is recommended not to forget about safety and to put digital locks on entrance doors.
7.4 Containers, boxes, safes.
7.4.1 All boxes (containers with Loot) in a game are divided into two classes: fixed and temporary.
The fixed container is a container which, being established in a base, doesn't disappear in the course of periodic reset of the server and process of cleaning of the thrown objects. Those containers there are three versions only:
184.108.40.206 Safe. An iron box with the coded lock. It can be received during the course of performance a number of missions, can be found on industrial locations, purchased in shop of household goods "Hardware" or received as a gift or an award from Administration as recognition of special merits in development of the game world of Exile.
After installation in a base, is the most reliable method of storage of objects.
220.127.116.11 Wooden box.
Container of the small sizes, without a possibility of installation of the coded lock. It can be made by wooden planks in a workbench in the course of Kraft. After installation, remains as the separate object connected to the base in the place chosen by the player and in the game radius of the base.
The things stored in such box don't disappear in case of reset of the server.
18.104.22.168 A supply-drop box from the humanitarian organizations.
Has dark green color, larger sizes. This box can be found in zones about landing strips of airfields of the island. It is warned by the corresponding message of a game in the moment of emission of the next box. Its designated on the game map as a dark circle with a red rim with a symbol of a white parachute inside. Also, such box can be received as an incentive gift from Administration in case of a construction of base and also as recognition of special merits in development of the game world of Exile.
This box can be temporarily established in a caracase of cargo vehicles for its transportation together with content, however will be lost from a car in the course of reset of the server.
Being established in base, can move by the player in its radius.
The things stored in such box don't disappear in case of reset of the server.
22.214.171.124 IMPORTANT! Pay attention that in case of MOVEMENT of the fixed containers established in base, loss of the things inside it is possible! It is connected with the error of the Exile-game mechanism which isn't eliminated so far. As a result, you can lose all the things in such box for benefit of other player who moved the box in the same timepoint.
Thus, it is recommended to exempt temporarily such boxes from property at the time of change of their binding inside the base.
7.4.2. Temporary storage containers of property of players are: all fixed containers, and also mission-like boxes of various sizes and flowers which aren't tied to base (except for "A supply-drop box from the humanitarian organizations" of # 126.96.36.199). Such boxes can be used for storage and transportation of things ONLY until reset of the server in the course of which are removed from a game together with ALL their content.
RECOVERY OF SUCH PROPERTY IS IMPOSSIBLE!
7.5 Using and extention of a base.
7.5.1 The only action required for content databases is a weekly payment, consult it in # 7.2.2 of this Rules.
7.5.2 Size of base.
The size of base is caused by 2 parameters: radius of base and quantity of elements of base.
188.8.131.52 Radius of base is a distance from her center (flagstaff) to her edge. It is possible to build and bind objects of base only in this radius.
184.108.40.206 Elements of base: all its constructional modules (wall, ceiling, floor panels, doors, locks, blinds, a workbench, a fire, the generator, spotlights, ladder flights etc.), boxes and safes, and also additional functional elements like a water tank. The extent of base is defined by the simple sum of all elements established by the CONSTRUCT/INSTALL commands in the radius of this base.
7.5.3 Expansion of base.
Expansion of base is possible from the 1st level (30 elements) to the 10th level (700 elements) by introduction of one-time payment by game currency at office of Administration on the second floor central a trade zone.
7.5.4 Decrease in level of base.
Decrease in level of base isn't provided by the game mechanism.
7.5.5 Amount of the weekly protective payment of base (WPBP).
The weekly payment depends on the level of base, and also depends on number of elements in it and is calculated at a rate of 12 "covers" for each element increased by the level of base, weekly. (it is added 05/12/2016).
7.5.6 Discounts for weekly payment.
Discounts for WPBP can be provided by Administration of the Project in an individual order as a financial incentive for recognition of special merits in development of the game world.
7.5.7 We pay your attention to that fact that in case of limiting achievement of the extent of quantity of elements of base, new elements can be established ONLY after removal of the corresponding quantity of already established elements, and in case of movement of already established elements the moved element of base will be DESTROYED automatically by the game mechanism. Don't forget to consult about the extent of base, its level and time of the expiration of WPBP in the game tablet, in the section TERRITORY.
7.6 Removal of a base.
Removal of a base can be made by the manual mode (in connection with abuse of regulations) or for the purpose of transfer of base.
In the automatic mode the base and all its content can be removed only on condition of not introduction of WPBP (Weekly Protection Base Payment) in time.
7.7 Recovery of a base.
Recovery of a base can be made only at the request of its owner, and only during the limited period of time after its removal if the owner will submit good reasons of not introduction of WPBP in time and if the base wasn't removed because of abuse of regulations.
7.8 Sale / purchase of base.
As well as any other in-game property of base, the base can be sold and purchased by players for game currency. Please note that transactions of this sort aren't connected with Administration anyway, aren't certified by it anyway and responsibility for them lies only on the parties agreeing about the transaction.
7.9 Virtual garage.
7.9.1 The virtual garage (further – VG) is a gift to the player from Administration in case of the beginning of a construction of base. VG may contain inside it up to 5 vehicles at the same time.
The VG size doesn't depend on the level of base. The WPBP amount doesn't depend on the number of the vehicles stored in VG. VG isn't considered as an element of base in WPBP.
7.9.2 When placing in VG the vehicle loses everything stored in its property, including the established temporary or fixed containers. DON'T FORGET YOUR GOODS IN THE TRANSPORT IN TIME TO ROOM IT IN THE VIRTUAL GARAGE! The goods lost in such a way aren't recovered anyway!
7.9.3 In case of return of transport from VG it appears on the same place from where it was placed on storage in VG. IT ISN`T RECOMMENDED TO FETCH TRANSPORT FROM VG IF THERE ONE MORE TRANSPORT OR THE ELEMENT OF BASE IS INSIDE THE RADIUS! It leads to explosion and losses of all property on the place of emergence of such collision.
7.10 For purpose of rights to use by elements of base to other player, the owner shall press it the GRANTRIGHTS button in the game tablet.
7.11 Starting with version 1.5 of the game, the player has the right to request from the Administration of the Project permission to settle a special custom base "ArmaTA", built from standard buildings and objects of the game. This type of base is preferred for small groups, clans and players.(added 19/01/2017)
