[IA] Minecraft Server Rules

The private Minecraft server, hosted and maintained by Urda, is a privilege for [IA] team members and [IA] friends. It is NOT A RIGHT to have access to the server. Therefore, there are a few rules one must follow to maintain access.

  • DO NOT
    • Grief other players structures, homes, living environments, and so on.
    • Take items from other players storage or areas without permission.
    • Destroy the environment with TNT, giant holes, and other unappealing terrain manipulation. Avoid eyesores.
    • Constructions sites are expected. Please complete surface constructions, or cleanup after yourself.
    • Use X-Ray texture packs or other tools to “see” through the terrain and find resources.
    • Enter unauthorized areas. If it is marked no-entry or escort only DO NOT enter without permission.
    • Setup your base too close to another user. The world is huge, give them some room to grow.
    • Use extremely vulgar or racist language in chat.
    • Constantly make requests to server admin staff. They want to play the game too.

  • DO
    • Be kind to your fellow players.
    • Be kind to your admin staff.
    • Be kind to the environment, build and shape it effectively.

  • Big Project & Public Project Policies
    • Be sure to NOT impact other player’s bases, domains, or living spaces.
    • Be sure to NOT impact other existing public projects, roads, travel routes, and/or GOTO points.
    • POST on the forums before starting any large projects so other users can be aware of construction.
    • POST on the forums for any resource requests for public projects. Admin staff are happy to consider projects and help.
    • For private projects, GATHER resources EFFECTIVELY. For example: If you strip a beach of sand, reshape it or fill the water back in. If you have an open air mine, integrate it into the land around you for use and when it’s empty neatly cover it up.

  • If you find a player breaking the rules…
    • You MUST have evidence, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that a player is causing trouble or not following appropriate policy.
    • You MUST have attempted to resolve the issue yourself (such as unauthorized entry, griefing, language) BEFORE posting.
    • POST on the forums with all the details of the occurrence.
    • DO NOT tattle on every little thing (such as Player A left a single peice of gravel this one time…). Reserve alerts for big issues.

  • You can, and will, be banned for not following these policies. Ban time length will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
  • Expect map resets after a while. You WILL be notified before a reset. Admin staff reserves the right to reset the map at anytime.
  • Admin staff reserves the RIGHT to update this list at anytime. Follow the forums for update notices regularly. This should be posted in game, with a timestamp.
  • TL;DR: Read the rules, there is no overview.
