PostSubject: New Server Rules   New Server Rules EmptyThu Jul 21, 2011 8:17 pm

These are the newest version of the rues that we have written so far.


1. It's a role-play server, therefore, role-play. Refrain from talking in the OOC (Out-Of-Character) chat too much and don’t spam or troll the chats either.

2. When your character dies RPly, he/she will be dead. There can be some instances in which you can be revived, but if this is not the case, you will have to make a new character. (NOTE: If you non-RPly you can disregard the death and will not have to start over.)

3. No Meta-Gaming. This is using OOC information in-game. For instance using a piece of information you might have read in the background story of someone and using that in-game without actually knowing it ICly. If you want to talk OOCly in an IC-chat, use one of the recognizable features like ((*)) or [[*]].

4. No Power-Gaming. This is basically forcing role-play of others, without giving them a chance of doing something back. A quick example of Power-Gaming: *Jacob slash his sword through Hank’s neck and decapitates him*.
An example of how you should approach this situation: *Jacob slashes his sword towards Hank’s neck, attempting the slice open his neck*.
By doing it this way, you give the other player a chance to dodge or attempt to counter your attack.

5. Refrain from using hacked and modified clients. Of course the use of minor client side mods as the WildGrass mod that there once was, is allowed.

6. Stick to the server setting. Do not go out of your way and do things that are deemed impossible in the server, like shooting fireballs from your hands.

7. Make sure the skin you are using is relevant to your character. Do not play with a skin of for instance Spiderman. Also make sure that the skin fits in the the server setting.

8. Do not make buildings that are deemed impossible structures. For example, do not build floating structures or ones that are merely balancing on a small column of blocks. If a building is located which breaks this rule, the building will have to make it a plausible structure or the building will be removed.

9. Refrain from leaving random blocks in the open world, like workbenches and furnaces in the middle of nowhere.

10. Do not make use of any skills that your character does not have. In this way character interaction will be needed to acquire certain items and will create RP.

11. Try to truly get into the spirit of your character and react rationally to things that happen around you. If you meet a random stranger with a weapon, do not cheerfully run up to him and say Hi.

12. Theft is allowed, but only if you follow the rules we set up to do so.
If you are going to steal from someone, you have to make sure that:
- The player you are stealing from is on the server at the moment of the theft.
- The player must be in the near vicinity of where you are going to steal.
- Refrain from stealing everything you see. If there is a full stack in the chest, you are only allowed to steal 20% of the stack.
- If you get caught stealing, do not just log off or run away, but rather role-play the consequences.

13. Use texture pack that has been put together for the best experience of the server. A download link and instructions on how to install it will be put down below.

14. Make use of the provided IC-names of ores and mobs. The names of these can be found further in the post.

15. Refrain from using 1337-5P34K, both In-Character as Out of character. We expect you to have a good grip of the English grammar and we also expect you to use it.

16. Refrain from griefing structures or even just the general landscape around without any reason to. Do not make 1x1 towers and also refrain from making underground tunnels to for example get past a wall.

I went ahead and revamped the rules of the Ruined World, to an in my opinion, more suitable setup. You can use it as it is or change / add to what I have done to it. Right now they only consist of server rules. Forum rules are yet to be made.

Revamped groundrules for the server:

1. It's a role-play server, therefore, role-play. Refrain from talking in the OOC (Out-Of-Character) chat too much and don’t spam or troll the chats either.

2. When your character dies RPly, he/she will be dead. There can be some instances in which you can be revived, but if this is not the case, you will have to make a new character. (NOTE: If you non-RPly you can disregard the death and will not have to start over.)

3. No Meta-Gaming. This is using OOC information in-game. For instance using a piece of information you might have read in the background story of someone and using that in-game without actually knowing it ICly. If you want to talk OOCly in an IC-chat, use one of the recognizable features like ((*)) or [[*]].

4. No Power-Gaming. This is basically forcing role-play of others, without giving them a chance of doing something back. A quick example of Power-Gaming: *Jacob slash his sword through Hank’s neck and decapitates him*.
An example of how you should approach this situation: *Jacob slashes his sword towards Hank’s neck, attempting the slice open his neck*.

5. Refrain from using hacked and modified clients. Of course the use of minor client side mods as the WildGrass mod that there once was, is allowed.

8. Do not make buildings that are deemed impossible structures. For example, do not build floating structures or ones that are merely balancing on a small column of blocks.

I agree that the changes that Serio has made are better, easier and clearer to read. I think that they should be used as the server rules Very Happy

at the stealing rule: 20% out of 64 is 12.8(13) I think the max should be around 24 items out of 64 and does not work for heavy blocks like stone, iron block, diamond block, Lapiz block(only if converted into the non block forms) and wood(not planks) here the max amount should be like 4 blocks
