General Rules

Be considerate to other players.

  • Ask before entering someone's area; leave if told to.
  • Do not argue, troll, bully, or harass players, especially for reasons based on race, religion, gender, ethnicity, or various other types of discrimination.
  • Do not stalk players virtually, physically, or use any methods of gathering personal information.

Be respectful to staff.

  • Use the available methods (petitions, forums, site messages, in-game /helpop) to request help.
  • Do not demand/beg for staff to do things for you.
  • Do not ask for ranks or OP.
  • Do not interfere with staff duties.
  • Do not police the server or its players. Staff members are the only ones who should be moderating.
  • Do not impersonate staff in name or text.

Use chat appropriately.

  • Use regular case or title case, not all capitals.
  • Refrain from explicit language and "1337 sp34k".
  • Use /msg for private conversations.
  • No spamming of any kind.
  • Do not beg for in-game currency or ask someone to donate for you.
  • Only speak in English in all publicly visible places on the server.
  • Keep in-game global chat appropriate and family-friendly. Make use of the private messaging system or utilize our private channels on TeamSpeak if you wish to discuss inappropriate topics and/or context.
  • Absolutely no advertising of other servers - in-game public chat, privately, or on teamspeak.

Follow building guidelines.

  • Do not make one-block wide towers or holes.
  • Do not make regular or massive holes straight down to bedrock.
  • Do not build right next to spawn without permission.
  • Do not build floating letters or text on the ground.
  • Do not build close to someone else's construction unless you have their approval.
  • Do not 'land grief/butcher terrain'. Destroying large sections of terrain that you will never use to boost up mcmmo stats will result in your stats being reset and you being rolledback, with the possibility of a ban. Keep the world pretty!
  • You may not claim chunks of land for personal or town use. All land must be shared between all players. Large projects should begin the outline as soon as possible so players are aware of the size of the project.

Do not use hacks, cheats, or exploit glitches, including (but not limited to):

  • Any method of duplication.
  • Use of "x-ray" mods/texture packs.
  • Flying without permission.
  • Speed hacks.
  • Exploiting game / server glitches or bugs.
  • Using a cheat client.
  • Using any scripts which allow for cheating.
  • Accepting inappropriately obtained items.

We do not tolerate any form of drama on the server. Do not start it or bring it into the community.

Account Rules

  • It is your job to keep your account secure.
  • Anything done on your account, regardless of who is/was playing, you are responsible.
  • Refrain from having an explicit user skin.
  • If you have an inappropriate in-game name, you will be banned.
  • You are only allowed to play on one account on EosCraft. Seek approval from the administrative staff team if you wish to use alternate accounts. Exception to this rule is if multiple residents in the same household play on the server. Ban evading will result in permanent removal from the server.

Donor Rules

  • Donors are expected to follow all listed rules as well, no exceptions are given.
  • Donors may not abuse the market or give out spawned items.
  • Donors may not fly or have godmode enabled in any arena or pvp zone.
  • Donors may not disguise or have pets in any arena or pvp zone.
  • Donors may not impersonate staff names or staff colors with their nickname.
  • Donor privileges may be adjusted at any given time in the future. You will not be compensated those benefits if they are changed.
  • Payments made to EosCraft are non-refundable.
  • You may not transfer donor ranks between players or alternate accounts.
  • Donor benefits and features are bound to your specified account only. It is strictly prohibited to use your benefits on or for others.

Secondary Rules

Griefing - An act of destruction to the work of another player, whether it is taking or placing materials.
Creating a player death trap is also considered griefing.
  • Any acts of griefing or thievery is not allowed and will not be tolerated.
  • Do not fly while being disguised as a mob or having a pet that does not naturally fly on its own.
  • Chest shops may only be created by donors and players who have achieved the rank of builder. You may not create shops for anyone but yourself.
  • Automatic mob farms must have a shutdown and item disposal to avoid mob and item accumulation. Farms without such will be removed.
  • You may not idle at mob spawners or own a passive mob spawner (cows, sheep, pigs, chicken, etc).
  • Mob spawners must have a sign on the spawner stating it is claimed.
  • All farms must have a limit of 10 mobs per mob type. Any additional count will terminate your farm from being active and you may be subjected to a ban. If you are actively breeding for material, you may breed up 50 mobs at a time before lowering the count back to 10. Breeding more than 50 mobs at a time is subjected to a perma-ban. You may not disconnect or leave the area if there are more than 10 mobs at that farm.
  • Builder applications will not be accepted if the project owner used spawned items.
  • You may not have constantly running redstone clocks or contraptions. If a redstone contraption actively running 24/7 is found, you will immediately be removed from the server. Any redstone contraption that causes client or server lag is not allowed.
  • Chunk loaders are not allowed and are considered a constantly running contraption.
  • Privatizing doors, chests, or any item you do not own, will get you banned.
  • Keep nether portals to a size of 20x20 or less with maximum of 16 in an area. If the portals are seen to be an eye sore, you will be required to cover or remove them.
  • Leaving floating trees is shunned upon. Please take down the entire tree and replant if necessary!
  • Players may not build above the nether or break bedrock.
  • Creating a build for the server to use (spawn, arenas, etc.) resigns all rights to the ownership of the build to the server. It becomes a server build operated and maintained by the staff administrative team.
