Allowed Modifications
What mods can be used on the server?

The use of third party modifications are a large part of the Minecraft experience for many community members. Modifications can range from FPS enhancements and visual improvements right through to gameplay altering ones. Please keep in mind that not all modifications are allowed on the server, please read the following blacklisted modifications guide for any information on allowed or disallowed modificaions,

Important Note
Before using or downloading any modifications please be aware that all use of modifications on our server is at your own risk, including the ones we list as examples in this guide. We cannot review every version of every modification, and as such we cannot provide any guarantees of modifications being within our server rules.

Any modifications you do install should always be obtained from the official source for that given modification, be that the creators website, GitHub or other profile (e.g. YouTube channel). Unofficial downloads from other sources may not behave as expected, which could include bugs or unadvertised features (which could result in punishments on our server), or even malicious code (e.g. viruses, spyware, etc.).

General Guidelines
What is and isn't allowed?


Categories of Allowed Modifications
Provided below is a list of the categories of modifications we permit on the server, along with an explanation of what each of these categories does and does not include and permit. If a modification does not fit into one of these categories, it should be assumed that it is disallowed by default.
  • Client Performance Improvement Modifications
    Modifications which simply seek to improve the performance of the Minecraft client without making changes to the game itself, such as those which improve the FPS of the Minecraft client.

  • Aesthetic Modifications
    Modifications which change only the look and feel of the game without modifying gameplay, such as standard shader modifications or even resource packs. These must not however change the properties of blocks (e.g. make non-transparent blocks transparent) or change the players perspective (e.g. allowing them to see around or over objects they normally wouldn't be able to).

  • Cosmetic HUD (Head-Up Display) Modifications
    Modifications which alter the look and feel of the in-game head-up display (HUD), without adding extra information which would normally be unavailable to the player. For example, HUDs adding armor and status effects, which are available to the player in their inventory screen, are permitted, while mini-maps, other player health / armor indicators, player distance / range, etc. are not.

  • Brightness & Gamma Adjustment Modifications
    Modifications which alter the brightness and gamma settings of the Minecraft client, allowing you to see in darker areas which would normally be too dark to see in.


Disallowed Modifications
Though we do not provide a thorough list of disallowed modifications, a general rule of thumb is that any modification which provides any significant advantage to the players in any of our games - even if not in the specific game you are playing - using them anywhere on our server will be against our rules.

Additionally, we do also note that anything which automates any player gameplay action is strictly disallowed, be those Minecraft modifications, external software or hardware. This includes things such as (but not limited to) auto / burst clicking buttons or macros, auto-sprint, and aim assists.

Finally, modifications which alter the way in which your Minecraft client interacts with and communicates with our server are also strictly disallowed, even if they otherwise fall into an allowed category. Please ensure that any modifications which are used are strictly client side only, with them not changing or altering the behaviour of the game.

If a modification does not fit clearly into any of the allowed modification categories, it should be assumed to be disallowed.


Allowed Modifications
Mods you can use on the server.
These are modifications which you can use on the network. For the most part, these are cosmetic modifications, or modifications which show limited amounts of additional information which should not give you an in game advantage.

As stated previously, any modifications listed here are still to be used at your own risk. If the features of any modification have changed since we added it to this list or if bugs have accidentally been introduced, those modifications may no longer be permitted. If you believe that to be the case with any of these, please let us know and we'll investigate that.

Armor & Effect Status
Armor Status, Effect Status, HudPixel, 5Zig*, etc.
Client modifications which add armor and/or potion effects to the Minecraft GUI (Graphical User Interface), outside of the inventory.

Animations Mods (Cosmetic Only)
Orange's 1.7 Animations
Client modifications which change in-game animations, such as those associated sword / weapon swings, provided these do not change the underlying functionality of the act associated with the animation(s) or add new functionality to the game (e.g. being able to "crawl" in 1 block high spaces).

Clients / Mod Packs (Including Only Allowed Modifications)
Badlion Client, etc.
Minecraft client mods (sometimes made available as self contained clients) which contain a variety of modifications grouped together into a single package are permitted, provided the included modifications are permitted on our server by themselves.

Please note that this does not include cheat / "hack" clients or similar, any use of which is against our rules.

Client Optimisation Mods
Optifine
Client modifications which have the main goal of improving client FPS (Frames Per Second).

Gameplay Recorders
Replay Mod
Client modifications which allowed for the recording and playback of gameplay, while also allowing for the changing of perspective during playback (but not in live gameplay). These mods must only be used on your own islands, or islands that provide consent to being recorded.

Gameplay World Saves
Schematica
Clients such as Schematic are allowed to be used on our server as long as the pasting feature is restricted.

Minecraft Vanilla Features
