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)
Hardware modifications (special mouses, etc)
Damage indicators or 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.
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!
In this section we try to cover all those behaviors and actions that don't really belong to any particular category.
Helping ban evaders
Keeping the secret when someone confesses to you they're breaking rules
Forging/providing false evidence
Sharing the account with banned players
Trying to get someone in trouble with the only intent of harming them
The punishment can range from a jail to a permanent ban, depending on the case. Advertising such as sharing IPs of other servers or talking excessively about other servers will be punished with 14 days of tempban, then 30 days and then permanent ban. Heavy advertising will straight lead to a permanent ban.
Factions is a competitive server very different than other gamemodes and as such it deserves its own set of rules.
A raid starts when players are close to the base building a box/cannon.
A raid is finished when 30 minutes have passed since the last shot.
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:
Claiming land with the sole purpose of disrupting another faction currently setting up their base or alike is not allowed, claiming around enemy bases will only be allowed to make cannons boxes to raid
Chunk Buffer Limit: factions are allowed a maximum of 20 chunks buffering their base
Base merging: there should be at least 10 chunks of wilderness between the chunks from both bases
Patching walls with generator buckets
Removing spawners in any way upon being raided. All the spawners mined will be handed over to the raiding team if mined during the raid process
Building unraidable walls in any way (i.e. cactus/chest/glass etc)
Placing cobwebs during pvp
Making Cobblemonsters with the sole purpose of griefing a base
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.
