1# GRIEFING: People work hard on their creations, and they don't need to come on the sever to see it destroyed! The staff will place a protection on the base of any player who requests it (this is highly recommended!), but that does not mean that unprotected buildings are open game to destroy.
This also applies to areas of land that have not been moved into by a player. Please do not try to make the server look ugly by digging random pits and leaving trees only half cut everywhere.
Do not slaughter animals that clearly belong to another player. (For insignificant farm animals, breeding them first and killing a number equal to the new babies is okay. Killing all of them is not okay.)
Do not dig one block straight down to bedrock; besides being ugly, that's practically setting a deathtrap for someone to fall into.
Do not go pour lava everywhere, fire spread is off but this still creates a hazard and makes the server ugly.
2# THEFT: Stealing from other players is against the rules. Players are highly recommended to lock their chests of valuables. If you some how get past a lock, steal from a lock that is for some reason not working, or steal from a chest that a user tried to lock but failed is against the rules, then players will be refunded their items and the thief punished.
Users are responsible for locking their own chests. If you do not lock your chest or attempt to do so your items might not be refunded. Some exceptions may occur.
3# OUTSIDE MODS: You may not have mods or hacks that give you an unfair advantage such as flying, X-ray vision, no fall damage, etc. You will be banned for using any of these.
4# KILLING OTHER PLAYERS: PVP outside of PVP areas is not allowed. Do not attempt to find ways to damage other players when you shouldn't. Areas that allow PVP will be added later.
5# PLAYING WITH OTHERS: You don't have to like everyone who joins the server or be nice to them, but do not disrupt the chat by constant fighting, harassment, or getting in the way of their activities unless they directly affect you.
The server's gameplay is close to regular Minecraft, though there's a few minor additions you will want to be aware of. Most of these are to enhance the regular gameplay, or to help keep the peace between players.
Lockette: This is how a player locks their chests to keep others from taking their things. To lock a chest, place a sign attached to the chest you wish to have locked. No one else will be able to access the chest afterward. To share it with another player, add their name to the sign on the 3rd or 4th line. You can also put multiple signs on one chest to add more names, or you can also put "[Everyone]" to allow anyone to access the chest without being able to lock it themselves.
Lapis Portals: These allow instantaneous fast-travel, but at a cost of multiple solid lapis blocks. More info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKvkwrZeB7Q
World Guard: This allows us to set areas for protection. Simply request help from a server staff member to have your base protected for you and your friends. The staff won't bite!
A block logging/rollback plugin is also in use to help the staff investigate and fix any griefing.
Here are the chat commands that players can use:
* /msg PlayerName some message here
* @PlayerName some message here
Sends a private message to a player. You can use just the first few letters of their name if it's unambiguous who it refers to.
* /r more message here
Quick command to reply in a private message to the last person who private messaged you.
Lists the server rules and a link to this thread.
* /modreq message here
Request help from a moderator. You can use this to report issues with the server (such as griefing), or to request an area protection. Your message, name, and current location will be logged in a ticket that a moderator can check later.
* /status [number]
Check the status of your modreq tickets.
Lists all moderators currently online and in-game.
* /region list
This lists out the names of all of the protected regions that you have permission to.
* /region info
If you're inside a protected region that you own, then this tells you about the region (its name, all of its owners and members, any special flags, and its coordinates). If you're not sure if you've gotten your base protected, or whether you're inside your protection's bounds, then you can check with this. You can also pass it a name of a region that you own ("/region info mybase") for information about it no matter where you are.
* /region addowner RegionName PlayerName
Adds an owner to a protected region that you own. Owners can place and destroy blocks in the region, add more owners, and control the member list.
* /region addmember RegionName PlayerName
Adds a member to a protected region that you own. Members can place and destroy blocks in the region. They can not add or remove other players to or from the region.
* /region removemember RegionName PlayerName
Removes a member from a protected region that you own. The player will no longer be able to place or destroy blocks in the region. Note that this command can only remove members, not owners. Please contact a moderator to remove an owner from a region.
* /region flag RegionName
Control whether non-members can access chests, furnaces, and other containers in a region that you own. The default "none" setting makes the region use the region or parent region default, which is deny. If you have a chest of free stuff in your region that you want all players to be able to give and take from, make sure to set "allow". You can still use Lockette signs to protect other chests in your region.
If you wish to add members to only part of a region that you own, then ask a moderator to create a new sub-region for you that you can control separately.
Feel free to ask any questions regarding the server! Be sure to report any rule breakers here and in-game. When reporting an issue, stand near the issue and use the /modreq chat command so that we can find and fix the problem.
