Added a clarification to the reactor rule.  No, we're not just doing it to be dicks, or to be "cute", there's a good reason.

Added the "unwritten" rule that lethal traps are legal as long as your property is posted that intruders will be killed.

Added clarification to what should have been common sense, since one of our players thought it'd be fun to argue the point with me.

Which generally tends to be a Bad Idea(tm)

Added the "golden rule" to cover any situation where we find something harmful to the server/multiplayer environment that's not specifically prohibited by another rule.

Updated, kinda.  I can't be bothered to do a full rewrite at the moment, although we really do need one.

Quoted to archive for rewrite of original post.


These rules are subject to change without notice. Please check often to be sure you are up to date on the do's and don'ts. Thank you!

The Golden Rule:  Remember that you are playing on a multiplayer server.  Do not build or do anything that is going to potentially ruin the experience for other players by impeding on their ability to play the game, either directly or due to lag induced by your machines.  If we find something that is harmful to the server, we reserve the right to destroy it with or without notice, and with or without compensation.

I) General Rules
    A) Please be respectful. Always use common sense.
    B) No griefing! Plain and simple: what's yours is yours; what's theirs is theirs.
         - We are a zero-tolerance server on this.  Your first offense might be your last, due to a swift shot from the ban-hammer.
    C) Repeated abuse of the rules will grant you an increasing punishment. For example, each successive offense could result in…
        (1) Verbal scolding
        (2) Confiscation of items
        (3) Loss of privileges
        (4) Temporary ban 
        (5) Permanent ban from ours and all other AGC listed servers
    D) Admins and moderators have the final say in all issues! That means you listen to them, don't argue about something stupid.
    E) Getting the level seed, going into creative mode in single player, finding where the goodies are, and then getting them on the server is the same as
         X-Raying.  This should be common sense.  Since someone thought it'd be cute to argue, it's now officially in the rules. 
          THIS IS BAN-WORTHY ON FIRST OFFENSE
    F) No Impersonating Staff

II) Chat Rules (apply to Teamspeak as well)
    A) No spamming.
    B) No advertising other servers.
    C) Please try to keep swearing to a minimum. We don't give a fuck about this anymore.  Please try to watch it if you know young kids are on, though.
    D) Please keep public chat in English.

III)  Gameplay Rules
    A) Do not attempt to bypass the AFK kick. (E.G. using methods to keep your player moving when you are not at the keyboard)
    B) PvP is only for fun. You may not attack other players or steal their items.
    C) No Fly Mods, X-Ray Texture Packs, or other client-side mods that directly affect or modify gameplay.
    D) Don't mess with peoples' stuff or poke around in their base without permission.  Note that if a player's property is posted with appropriate warning signs, LETHAL TRAPS ARE ALLOWED!
    E) Please use the mods correctly. If there is an issue/bug with a mod, then it will be taken care of ASAP. Please don’t exploit bugs and always USE COMMON SENSE.
    F) Do not beg for free items, food, teleports, etc. from admins or mods. We are here to help you out; not to play the game for you!
    G) Do not use enchanted books to apply enchantments to items that can't be enchanted by putting it in an enchanting table.  If it won't go into a table, it's not meant to be enchanted.  Exception - Rotarycraft/Reactorcraft machines, using the enchantment method built in.
    H) Boring machines from Rotarycraft are only permitted in the mining world.
    I)  The use of mining lasers in scatter mode are strictly prohibited.  Additionally, firing a mining laser that damages someone else's property, EVEN BY ACCIDENT, is considered a griefing offense, and is punishable by ban.  If you insist on carrying them, treat them with the respect they deserve.
    J)  You may not use another player's Reactorcraft machines, nor any machines powered by them.  If you want to harness the amazing power of nuclear fission, learn the science and make the investment!
    K)  ANY Reactorcraft reactor must be inspected and approved by a member of the admin or moderation team prior to water being supplied to the steam boilers and the reactor being ignited for the first time.  The approving admin will issue a license in the form of a sign on the side of your reactor.  ANY REACTOR WITHOUT A LICENSE, AS WELL AS ANY CHUNKS THEY ARE IN, WILL BE REGENNED WITHOUT NOTICE.  Note that we are not certifying efficiency or safety, only that they are built properly for steam dissipation.  This is because improperly built reactors have the capacity to cause massive amounts of localized lag, thus potentially corrupting the map and requiring another map reset.  We're just checking to make sure you did it right, that's all.
    L)  Only two pebble bed reactors, one fission reactor, one breeder reactor, and one fusion reactor are permitted per complex.  Note:  This is not a per player limit, this is per complex, as in these limits apply for your entire group.  Any attempt to bypass this rule will result in the license for ALL reactors owned by that complex being revoked...with the accompanying punishment.
   M) The use of Mining Turtles is forbidden! [NO EXCUSES!]
   N) Cursed earth mob spawners are limited to 5X5. you may NOT use this with any other mob spawning methods.

IV)  Prohibited Items
    A) No "old fashioned" cobblestone generators.  Igneous extruders or item transfer node versions are acceptable.
    B) Quarry rules…
        1) 2 Buildcraft quarries, OR 1 boring machine/tunnel bore, OR 1 ender quarry per complex allowed.
        2) ONE quarry per chunk.
        3) No underground quarries.  The quarry must be clearly visible and at/near surface level.  Putting a roof over it is allowed.
        4) All Buildcraft quarries must be default size.  Ender quarries may be up to 64x64.
        5) NO automated mining in the Deep Dark. That is considered to be underground.
        6) All automated mining methods must be in the mining world, exceptions require approval from admin/moderation staff.
            6a)  You currently have permission, this rule is temporarily suspended due to lack of a mining world.
    C) Water is not to be used as an item/mob collection tool. Use pipes, belts, and all the other methods the mods put in place to collect items.
    D) No pumps in the nether.  PERIOD.
    E) No more than 1 SPAWNER per group active at a time.  This includes all autospawning mechanisms, vanilla spawner complexes, and cursed earth complexes.  You can HAVE multiple spawners, but only one may be active at a time!
        1) Autospawners cannot be used to spawn slimes or magma cubes.
    F)  Only one Minefactory Reloaded fertilizer is permitted per complex.
    G) Use of Arcane Bores in The End is prohibited.
    H) Using Funky Locomotion frames for mining rigs are prohibited! Using frames are allowed for anything that is not a mining rig... Within reason.
    I) No Mining Turtles
    J) No Thaumcraft Imbued Fires, or similar class of item, used in the nether.
    K) One RFTools dimension is allowed to be active PER GROUP at any given time.  You can have multiple ones, but only one can be running.
   
V) Base/Building Rules
    A) You cannot claim more than one oil deposit/oil biome at a time.
    B) Volcanoes (or other structures) cannot be claimed simply for resource collection. You must actually have your base/house there to prohibit others from using the area.
    C) There are several cities around the map, in addition to spawn, and the market. Please don't build too close to them.  In general, if you can see another player-built structure on your minimap you are probably too close to someone else.
    D) You must label all property in some way if you expect privacy.  If you don't, and people use your stuff, don't complain.
    E) Lethal traps are allowed in your base, but you must have adequate warning signs advertising that intruders will be killed.  If we can find a way into your base that isn't posted (and doesn't require tunneling under defenses like your local neighborhood griefer), it shouldn't be lethally trapped.

Updated, total rules rewrite to better fit our current situation and admin/moderation team's guidelines.
