The use of hacked clients, disallowed mods or cheats of any kind that give you unfair advantages over other players are strictly forbidden.
Please remember that all use of modifications, including the ones listed here, is done at your own risk. If you're caught using/having a prohibited mod, you will get banned, even if you didn't know if it was prohibited or not..
Here's the list of mods that are not allowed:
LabyMod (only versions lower than 2.6, if you are on 2.6 or higher you're good to go)
Free-Cam (or any mod that lets you explore the world in a spectator-like mode)
Spawner tracers/minimaps that highlight spawners
Hardware modifications (special mouses, multiple mouses, mouses along side trackpads, etc)
Mods that show invisible players or their location
Printer/Autobuilding mods (mods that place blocks automatically for you)
Mods with 1.7 animations server side
List of some of the allowed mods:
Optifine (allows Minecraft to run faster and look better with full support for HD textures)
Armor Status, Directional Huds, and Status Effect (5-Zig, bspkrs, ...), but only if they show your own status
Damage Indicators, indicators that show the health of other players (BetterPVP, ...)
Chat Mods (TabbyChat, Chat Companion, ...)
Forge and LiteLoader (as long as all mods are allowed)
Schematica (only buildings visualization/preview)
Please note there might be mods that are not included here but that we still wouldn't allow. Ask staff if in doubt. Admitting to be using disallowed hacks/mods (as joke or not) might be considered enough to punish at discretion of the staff.
For minor disallowed mods such as Macros, WorldDownloader:
Exploiting game mechanics is another kind of behavior we will not tolerate.
Exploiting game mechanics is the act of gaining unfair advantages through the abuse of commands or anything in a way that is not the one intended (i.e. resetting skyblock islands to get nether spawners, making someone suicide to boost minigame stats, boosting on pvp etc)
Some additional punishments such as balance reductions may be applied!
Factions is a competitive server very different than other gamemodes and as such it deserves its own set of rules.
The rules stated here have been created with a reason, looking for loopholes will not be tolerated, and punishments will be enforced if necessary.
The following is a list of disallowed behaviors with a punishment that ranges between 6h to 7d tempban and eventually perma ban, on occurrence claims shall be unclaimed.
Claims and claiming:
Claiming land with the sole purpose of disrupting another faction currently setting up their base or cannon box is not allowed.
Factions are only allowed to keep/use one corner, upon having more they will be unclaimed.
Chunk Buffer Limit: factions are allowed a maximum of 20 chunks buffering on each side their base, the buffer starts where the main box ends. (Regens within the box are not allowed)
45 wall protection is not allowed. Upon being made, the walls will be removed and the chunks unclaimed.
Base merging: there should be at least 10 chunks of wilderness between the chunks from both factions.
Building unraidable walls in any way is not allowed (i.e. cactus/chest/glass etc).
Making Cobblemonsters with the sole purpose of griefing a base or protecting one is not allowed.
When raiding, Factions can be raided or counter-raided with only one cannon at the same time, per raid.
Minimum cannon speed is 3 seconds (per button press).
Disallowed cannons: worms.
Max cannon claims: 10x10 (including buffer).
No raiding with counter cannons.
No wilderness patching allowed, including randoms claims to prevent factions from raiding/countering.
Camping near bases (Cannon boxes NOT included) to prevent players from flying, building, or mining is not allowed.
Griefing wilderness with huge oceans or pillars (gens) etc. is not allowed.
We reserve the right to decide when and how to consider something as offense (i.e. abuse of caps) and to punish for cases not listed above. You can ask a staff member if you are in doubt. We also reserve the right to discard any evidence older than 2 weeks.
