    1. Floating islands and some forms of terraformation are allowed.
  2. Usage of a hacked or cheat client, or any hardware/software that give unfair advantages will result in a permanent ban. (for example: Auto clickers) Additionally, examples of allowed clients are:

Claim blocking (such as making a town right next to another without that persons permission) is not allowed in any shape or form and will be deleted WITHOUT REFUND.
  5. Large towns gobbling up nations/states are not recommended and not allowed in some forms. Claiming something as small as Rhode Island/Connecticut or New Jersey (If you make all of New York City) is fine, however something like claiming all of Germany or Britain in one town is not recommended by Staff at all (general rule #1). Outlining a claim is not a fair excuse.

  11. Gold farms are prohibited, if we find any, we will take it down immediately. We also do not accept farms that lag the server TPS such as massive lag machines made of redstone, slime blocks etc.
  12. Make Towns in a geographically accurate area. Don't make a city like London in Siberia, or Sydney in New York State unless there is a town there.
  13. Fictional towns or nations are allowed as long as they aren't super ridiculous. This is usually on a staff outlook, as many town names with memes in them are usually seen as fine.
    1. Okay examples are Airstrip_One, Jotunheim, Asgard, Quahog, Basedville, Poglands.
    2. Not okay examples are N***erland, fuck_leftKILL_JEWS, WORKERS_UNITE, BLM, Anyone's real information.

  15. Capitalize your town names. No starting with a lowercase, or having improper grammar.
  16. Joining a town and stealing everything because of misconfigured town or nation perms is not punishable and it is up to you to make sure your town is stable.

  17. Maliciously griefing a roadway/railway that is monitored (as in connected to a town) by a town/nation will result in the same banning process as minor griefHowever small griefs on it such as digging up few material or rails are allowed. This will be reviewed by staff case by case, however this rule's only exception is during a siege.
  18. Illegal, or "cracked" accounts are not allowed on here in the slightest.
  19. Asking a staff member to roll back a fallen town is prohibited. Blowing up your town by losing a siege or by placing TNT everywhere is your fault (unless its a grief action), and it will be up to YOU to rebuild your town.

Warring

  1. New players are not affected by war, and they have 3 days to fight unless they themselves siege another town, this will be bannable almost on every occasion.
    1. To gear new town/nation players and force them to fight does not bypass this rule, and can be bannable for Toxicity.
  2. "Siege towns", or towns that are made next to a town during a siege are not allowed and will result in a temporary ban.
