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
Drag clicking, Brawl clicking, Scroll clicking
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
Binding attack to another key for higher CPS
List of some of the allowed mods and clients:
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)
Shulker box preview
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.
Disclaimer: if your faction is breaking constant rules, abusing, individuals racking up mass offences, factions will be at threat of being disbanded.
Factions are supposed to claim all the land they desire (cannon boxes, bases, buffers etc.) BEFORE they start building.
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/using their base or cannon box is not allowed (one claim can be used to fly to the top as long as it doesn't disturb). (1d ban)
Factions are only allowed to keep/use one corner, upon having more they will be unclaimed (alt factions won’t be tolerated).
Chunk Buffer Limit: factions are allowed a maximum of 20 chunks buffering their base, the buffer starts where the main box ends. (Regens within the box are not allowed) (7d ban for all of those who claimed)
Base merging: there should be at least 20 chunks of wilderness between the chunks from both factions. (7d ban for all of those who claimed)
Making Cobblemonsters with the sole purpose of griefing a base or protecting one is not allowed. (7d ban for all of those who made)
When raiding, Factions can be raided or counter-raided with only one cannon at the same time, per raid. You may switch cannons leaving a 10 minute gap between shots. If cannon blows up (malfunction/countered; not blown up by own fac) you can switch cannons immediately. (7d ban)
Minimum cannon speed is 3 seconds (per button press). (7d ban for all of those who raided with a faster one)
Disallowed cannons: worms, midairs, L stackers, roof cannons. (7d ban for all of those who raided)
Max cannon claims: 10x10 (including buffer), you may extend a 2 chunk wide claim for the barrel. (1d ban for all of those who claimed)
No raiding with counter cannons. (7d ban for all of those who raided)
No wilderness patching allowed, including random claims to prevent factions from raiding/countering. (1d ban for all of those who patched)
The use of empty/raided cannon boxes to distract/protect other cannon boxes is NOT allowed (eg. trying to confuse the enemy about what box to shoot at // protecting your new cannon box with your old, raided cannon box)
45 wall protection is not allowed. Upon being made, the walls will be removed and the chunks unclaimed. (7d ban for all of those who built)
Only 4 regen filters (pillars) will be allowed per buffer side of the base. Upon exceeding, the walls will be removed and the chunks unclaimed. (7d ban for all of those who built)
Building unraidable walls in any way is not allowed (i.e. cactus/chest/glass etc). 14d ban for all of those who were building it.
Camping near bases (Cannon boxes NOT included) to prevent players from flying, building, or mining is not allowed. (1d ban)
Griefing wilderness with huge oceans or pillars (gens) etc. is not allowed. (7d ban for all of those who built)
When being raided you are NOT allowed to break in any way, shape or form your spawners (“i didn't know we were being raided will not be a valid excuse”). 14d ban for all of those who broke spawners
Patching with gen buckets/sandbots is NOT allowed (7d ban for all of those who abuse it)
Raiding bases/counters saving backs/logging off inside enemy claim is NOT allowed (7d ban for all of those who abuse it)
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.
