Overview

In order to keep Modded Minecraft Club a more orderly, calm, and happy place, we have instituted several rules. These rules are what we believe to be the minimum required to create a community of the type we intend to create. If you have any questions about any of the rules please feel free to post them on our forums or ask them to a staff member.

These rules are divided into four categories: Global Rules (which apply everywhere, on the forum and all servers), Mindcrack rules (which apply only on mc.moddedminecraft.club), Horizons rules (which apply only on the FTB Horizons III server), and FTB Beyond rules (which apply only on the FTB Beyond sever). If you have any questions about what rules apply in a given situation, please ask a staff member.


Rules

Global Rules

  • No griefing whatsoever, even in unclaimed areas.
  • Claim all builds. Build vertically or wait for additional claim blocks if you are unable to claim new land. See how here here.
    • You may also ask staff members to provide additional claim blocks for already built structures, but you risk getting griefed without a refund while the structure is being built if you choose this route.
  • Do not claim any land unless you intend to build in it. Do not simply claim land features because they look nice. Claiming land to prevent other players from getting to it before you are able to do so is fine, but, a staff member may remove your claim if they feel you are taking too long.
  • Failure to claim a build will prevent you from obtaining a refund of any items lost if it is griefed. You are guaranteed a refund of lost items if a claimed build is griefed due to a bug in the server.
    • If you trust a player in your claim and they grief you you are not entitled to a refund.
  • No utilizing exploits in the modpack and/or server
  • Report any and all exploits you find or otherwise become aware of via an email to [email protected] as soon as you are able to do so
  • No spawn-killing.
  • No spamming, in chat, forum threads, or otherwise.
  • No racism, sexism, homophobia, or other forms of bigotry. This will result in an immediate permanent ban
  • No profanity above PG-13 level. This roughly correlates to a single swear word every 2 hours per player (although this is not a hard limit), and no definitions of swear words (jokes that rely on such definitions are also not allowed).
  • Always be respectful to all other players and staff members.
  • The use of alternative accounts to evade punishments or bypass server restrictions such as chunk loading limits is prohibited. Alternate accounts for other reasons are allowed, however they must be declared to a staff member.
  • Only English is to be spoken in the server chat and on the forums. This is to ensure that our moderators are able to monitor what is being talked about -- we do not want inappropriate things being discussed. We are open to taking on new bilingual (or more) staff members to allow more languages to be spoken in server chat.
  • Do not pester staff members for free items, ranks, or anything of that nature (except for the member rank)
    • You may ask for item refunds in the scenario where you are griefed.
  • To become a member, establish yourself in the world and then talk to a staff member (see this page for more information)
  • A moderator’s say is final on all matters and supersedes what is written in these rules. If you believe a moderator is misunderstanding the situation, you may tell them and provide additional information, but, if that does not change their mind that is the end of it.
  • Do not attempt to bypass any world borders.
  • If there have been 3 months since you were last on MMCC, your base(s) and other claims are eligible to be transferred to another player. We can exempt you from this rule for extended absences if you notify us ahead of time. If you are interested in taking over a base, please talk to a staff member.

FTB Horizons Rules

  • Pumping lava from the nether, lava lakes, or anywhere else is not allowed because flowing liquid blocks are liable to lag the server. Please use a white-white-white ender tank to access unlimited public lava instead.
  • Do not attempt to chunk load anything outside of the chunk loading plugin described here.
  • No automatic mining that destroys the world, ET void miners are fine.

FTB Beyond Rules

  • Pumping lava from the nether, lava lakes, or anywhere else is not allowed because flowing liquid blocks are liable to lag the server. Please use a white-white-white ender tank to access unlimited public lava instead.
  • Do not use Quantum Quarries because they cause significant lag and other issues.
  • Do not attempt to chunk load anything outside of the chunk loading plugin described here.
  • RFTools dimensions are not allowed -- at all. A void dimension is available, however, at /warp void. A skylands dimension is also available at /warp skylands.
  • When using an RFTools builder as a quarry you must use a clearing quarry card to ensure that other players know that area has been mined and do not attempt to mine it again.
  • Any activity that damages the world (RFTools builders acting as quarries, harvesting a large area of a forest, plundering a village, etc.) shall be done in the mining world accessible at /warp minehere to prevent aestheteic damage to the main world and to allow us to easily reset the mining world to bring in new resources without disrupting structures.
    • There is an exception for the area immediately around your house, provided the activity will not result in a large hole in the ground and does not violate the visible-only quarry rule.
  • The /warp minehere world will be reset periodically with at least 2 days warning. If you will be leaving for an extended period of time (ie. a vacation) you are advised to remove all quarries, etc. from the mining world. Items lost due to a reset will not be refunded.

Age of Engineering Rules

  • Our Age of Engineering server, due to being a hard mode pack, does not currently have a public lava ender tank. As such, nether lava pumping is allowed.
  • All automated mining should take place in the mining world provided as part of the modpack.
  • Please limit yourself to no more than one automated mining apparatus at a time to limit lag.
  • If you are using an RFTools builder as a quarry, use a quarry clearing card so that other players are aware of what areas have been mined. Additionally, a single RFTools quarry may be of an area no greater than 64x64.
  • Do not use Quantum Quarries because they cause significant lag and other issues.
  • Do not give items to players of a lower age that would allow them to circumvent the progression of this modpack.
    • Asking for such items is against the rules as well.

Mindcrack Rules

  • Quarries are not allowed in the overworld under any circumstances. You must use the mining world for quarries available at /warp minehere.
  • The /warp minehere world will be reset periodically with at least 2 days warning. If you will be leaving for an extended period of time (ie. a vacation) you are advised to remove all quarries, etc. from the mining world. Items lost due to a reset will not be refunded.
  • When collecting large numbers of natural resources or doing so in such a way that the land is destroyed, do so in the mining world so that it can be easily reset if necessary.
  • All chunk loading should be done with ChickenChunks chunk loaders. You will be limited in the number of chunks you can force-load, but, those chunks will stay force-loaded 24/7 -- even when you are not online. This is because Minecraft 1.4.7 can be made much more efficient than Minecraft 1.10.
  • Nether lava pumping is allowed, but, please try to keep it to a relative minimum. If a staff member finds 10 pumps all over owned by the same player, then they may need to be removed. If in doubt, you are probably pumping too much. Also, the resource world has its own nether (can be accessed via a nether portal in the resource world). Please lava pump in here rather than the main nether.
