Rules

Click here for a simpler explanation of our rules!


1. Gameplay Conduct

1.1 No cheating, hacking, modifications or exploiting.

Cheating may include clients, mods, or external programs that influence gameplay. X-Ray mods, fly-hacks, Killaura, autoclickers, autofishers, macros etc. are all not allowed. This rule does not apply to:
  • Optifine and other performance improvement mods.
  • Armor and effect status HUD mods.
  • Minimap mods with caves and mobs turned OFF.
  • Shaders and aesthetic resource packs
  • Litematica or Schematica (please inform staff if you plan to use these mods)
If you find a bug, please report it to a staff member. Exploiting bugs will not be tolerated.

1.2 You are responsible for your items.

If you lose your items (and not as a result of a server issue), it is your responsibility. As long as you don’t die in a town, your items will be placed in a Gravestone that will last for 20 minutes. Any player can open your gravestone to get the items.

1.3 Griefing is not allowed. Raiding is allowed.

You cannot grief people's builds or the natural landscape. If a town has fallen and is no longer protected, you are allowed to raid the town for items (from chests) and valuable blocks. You will be punished for aimlessly breaking blocks to grief. Town mayors are responsible for any damage that occurs from giving players ranks in your town. Town mayors cannot raid their resident's chests or houses, unless they are inactive for 6 or more months. Similarly, residents cannot join a town just to steal. Doing so will result in a ban. Building/creating ugly structures outside of towns is also not allowed. (Town border grief)

1.4 Alternate accounts are not allowed.

Alternate accounts are not allowed on the server. If you have siblings or multiple people joining from one IP address, please let staff know to prevent any punishments. This is put into place to prevent people being able to claim rewards twice, pay themselves money, earn extra items etc. Please understand that some staff members have alternate accounts for testing. This accounts are never used for playing on the server.

1.5. No Anti-AFK machines.

People abuse leaving themselves logged into the server. We have an automatic AFK system to prevent this. Do not attempt to evade this system. Minecarts, water machines, etc. are all not allowed and will be destroyed by staff.

1.6 Please limit your use of too many entities and redstone blocks

Farms that use too many minecarts, hoppers, etc. may be required to be removed at staff's discretion. This is to help the server not lag.

1.7 Terraforming and land-destruction is not allowed

You are not allowed to re-terraform the land and this will be rolled back by staff. We want to keep the map's original terrain and look but still encourage players to build and enjoy the landscape. We ask that you refrain from burning down trees, removing mountains, draining oceans and lakes, building platforms on the ocean, etc. TNT is banned on MCU as it causes unnecessary damage to the land and buildings. Use the /resource world to gather resources!

1.8 MCU allows the creation and following of fictional groups, but stay away from religion.

MCU encourages the creation of certain groups, such as the "All Mighty Seal Hands Group", but these are not to be referred to as a religions. This is designed to keep our server a safe and enjoyable place to hang out. Players must never impose this fictional group upon others and require them to join in.


2. Chat Conduct

2.1 Only use English in global chat.

We are an international server that welcomes players from across the globe. However, we need to make sure everyone is safe and is following the rules whilst in game, and so we require all players to use English in global chat and Nation chat (/nc). You do not have to use English in /msg or Town chat. (/tc). Please see the section on languages in our Discord server.

2.2 Do not spam.

Character spam (dragging), 4 or more repeated messages, excessive use of capitals, and intentional distractions are not allowed.

2.3 Keep swearing to a minimum

2.4 Homophobia, sexism and racism, etc. will not be tolerated

MCUniverse will not tolerate discrimination of others, no matter their race, gender, orientation or beliefs. We encourage people not to talk about such topics in chat. Political talk that becomes heated or controversial will also be dismissed.
