Server Rules

Updated: 14.08.2020



General

Please stick to game related themes in open chats.

Do not create modern/ futuristic stuff.

PvP has to be announced with '/emote rage'.

Cheating/ hacking WILL lead to a ban. Forever.

Do not attack any NPC-merchants, do not destroy server teleporters, street lanterns, country roads or bridges.

Try to behave like a grown-up. Even if you're not yet. We like to stay a friendly community.



Building & Farming

You may claim 2 pieces of land with a size limit of 400.000m³ or 5 pieces up to 1600.000m³ as PATRON.

You may build as many one family houses as you want within every village or city, but occupy
only 1 at a time. Apartment buildings may only be risen in metropolitan areas. Unoccupied buildings
or apartments have to be available for others, for example, via selling them to interested players.

Players have to unclaim land & buildings in open country, if abandoned by them.

All structures have to be build in realistic sizes, vintage style and should have furniture.

No stacking of blocks without building/ construction purpose (e.g. 1x1 stacked towers).

Do not build over other peoples claims, except if they are ok with it.

Claiming land within common villages or cities is allowed in size of the players house & garden only.

Villages may be claimed as a whole, if the area is clan territory and all members have access to it.
If someone leaves a clan, his personal house & garden has to be freed (if existing).


A settlement is considered a village as soon as there are more than 3 one family houses/settlers
in close proximity and pathways connecting these buildings. 12+ is metropolitan.

Settlements have to be given a name (place a sign near pathways leading to it).

Players may own 1 shop within a communities marketplace (but can sell anywhere).

Gambling or events which create any revenue (through fees, bidding etc.) are allowed with a gambling license only. Become a patron now, to receive one.

Setting up paid events without a gambling license will lead to a ban. Unpaid events which do not create revenues can be held by everyone.

For the sake of exploration, every player is allowed to build temporary shelter within open country.

Size has to be: Small, Single room.

Shelters have to stay unclaimed and can be destroyed and looted by others.

Placeholders for constructions/ buildings/fences or temporary shelters may be build with soil.
Placeholders have to be converted into wood, stone etc. as soon as possible, though.

Constructions entirely made out of soil, will get removed by the admin, if not converted within a certain time.

Every player is allowed to hold 16 or less tameable animals.

Too many animals can kill server performance. Admin may have to take action, if you keep more than 16 at once.

Animal traps have to be removed if not in use anymore.

Any building that serves either military or war purposes has to stay unclaimed and may be destroyed by anyone.



Player vs Player (PvP)

PvP is allowed 24/7 but is not encouraged.

PvP actions have to be announced to other players with '/emote rage' while facing each other.
(You may want to bind this command to a key using the macro editor. Hit ctrl & M).

PvP is NOT allowed within villages, private homes, public buildings, fenced farmland or on paved walkways/ streets.

Stealing is restricted to: inventory items of defeated players, any items that seem to belong to others
in open (unfenced) country, abandoned (unclaimed) buildings, temporary shelters.

Do not camp in front of peoples homes with the purpose to attack them.

Do not destroy creations or buildings of others without purpose, to steal materials or "just for fun". This will lead to a ban.
This does not apply to military and war facilities. These can be attacked any time, as far as it serves a proper purpose.



Clans

Please only use group names that somehow refer to a clan, group or (server-) village/town. Good examples would be something like "Sushi Boys" for a clan or "Citizens of Wolkenheim" for a town community. Group names like "America", "Flower", "Minecraft" would not be ok. Admins will change your group name to something else without further notice, if not rule conform.

The maximum clan size is currently 16 members, which may change as the server grows.

Clan territory may not exceed 1600.000³ as a whole (4 full standard claims or 1 full patron claim).

Claims made for groups, cannot be converted to a single persons claim afterwards, except for the own house & garden. If an area consists of shared buildings only (like apartment buildings), one has to unclaim everything, if he/she doesn't want to be part of a group anymore. If one want's to unclaim areas previously claimed for a group, this person needs to inform the other group members of his/her actions. This has not neccessarily to be done before doing so, but at least afterwards.

Failing to follow these rules, will cause admin action, that may leave your own legitimate claim unprotected.



(Voice-) Chat Rules

No profanity, no insulting,
no discrimination, no shouting. Unless you like to get kicked.

Language: English or German (server-wide).
Any other as PM (personal message) or within a text/voice clan chat only.

If you go offline, make sure to free the voice chat slot for others. Failing to do so several times, may cause future voice chat restrictions.



Server Activity

We got no special rules regarding server activity BUT please keep in mind that admins may unclaim your land if it seems like you haven't been online since some time and do not intend to continue your work. Normally, no buildings will get removed, but other players will be able to claim, modify, destroy. So if you intend to stay away from the server for long (1 month+) but don't want to risk loosing your claim, please talk to an admin.



Special Admin & Moderator Rights

Administrators are allowed to help players with building of public facilities in spawn town only.* Working materials that have been given to players to help with building in spawn town are not allowed to be used at any other place. Working tools like saws or chisels have to be aquired by players themselfes at all times.

*Exception: Players with the "Event Master" Tier (for events only)

Admins are allowed to play in survival mode on VSo, but won't participate in any pvp actions, will not join clans and will not do business with survival players (buying, selling, trading, etc). They will also not give away items or materials for free.

Please note that some of our staff members DO NOT have any admin rights and will play pure survival on the server like anyone else, including pvp. These staff members do act only as support to the admins and can be adressed by players if any problems or questions occur. They are separated from the admins in our Discord, in case you like to know who is admin with access to creative mode and who is a pure survival player.




If you believe, that someone is breaking rules or is cheating, please report them via our Discord.
Rules are subject to change.
