    18. No invisible boats. (Transparent boats must not be less than 50% transparent)

    Hey there all, I just realized that most moderators may have a bit of a problem enforcing this rule in the future. Here's the problem.
    I don't know what 50% transparency looks like on all of the props.
    I don't think there's any way of checking.
    I could be lied to by players because I have no way of checking.

    My question is, should the moderators and/or players use their own judgment as to whether or not it is breaking a rule? Or is there a way of checking for sure, and if not, could we perhaps have a method for doing this?

    Maybe a vote to judge if a prop or boat is too transparent?

    At one point I did think that we could implement some sort of voting system wheras donators could promote a yes/no question to the server in order to settle petty arguments.

    Rule 18 is one of those things that's pretty much common sense.

    * If the material/color used is so transparent that you have a very difficult time seeing it. Then it's not allowed. If you can see the boat "somewhat" then I'd say thats fine.

    Jeffrey has explained this as well as I would have. The meaning of rule 18 is essentially implied and should be simple enough to decipher without over-complicating the process.

    With that being said I believe this thread has been concluded and will be closed at this point.
