The Staff team reserves the right to punish any member regardless of whether or not the rule is specifically covered for any reason. These rules are to be taken as guidelines which cover general scenarios. Common sense should be used where possible as to what’s right and wrong if a certain situation is not covered.
If you are unsure whether something is considered rule-breaking, ask a staff member before doing so. It is a players responsibility to know the rules or ask whether something is rule-breaking beforehand, we will not accept any excuses in punishment appeals.
This is a mature server and jokes are welcome, but do not flame, disrespect, harass or post/say inappropriate content. There is a fine line between having "banter" with players as soon as it falls under this rule, it is not banter.
Flaming or Disrespecting staff will get you muted. This goes for staff from Jr. Mod to Admin. We don't get paid for this and staff would rather not be disrespected or flamed. So if you don't have something nice to say don't say anything at all. There's a fine line between banter and flaming when it comes to staff.
Spamming is sending the same or multiple messages over and over. If you spam you will be warned to stop and if you don't stop you will be punished.
Autoclicking to mine, kill monsters or anything involving autoclicking is strictly not allowed.
Advertising other servers no matter how big or small is not allowed. You are free to post links to YouTube, Imgur, Reddit, Facebook or whatever else but do not advertise other servers in any way, shape or form.
Using hacked clients, X-ray mods, X-ray texture packs, bugs, glitches, exploits or mods that alter your Vanilla experience or anything else that is considered hacking is strictly prohibited. This rule is taken very seriously and you will be banned straight away for breaking this rule.
Raiding bases is not allowed under any circumstances. It doesn't matter if the player is banned or hasn't logged on in a year. You are only to raid a base when you are given written permission by Luke or the owner of the base.
Players on TWS have spent countless hours building, gathering supplies and working together. If you take items or destroy another persons property without their permission it is considered griefing. This includes public farms.
Your builds, portals, and projects will be found by many players. To avoid confusion, credit, and disputes please label your property.
Dupes of any kind are NOT allowed, carpet dupers, any item or entity dupes. TNT dupers from flying machines or the likes that "dupe" the primed TNT are allowed.
This includes no mining, breaking trees, or anything inside the radius, shown here with the "X"s https://tws.gg/map.html
As the majority of players are English speaking and I and other staff only speak English and we wouldn't know what you'd be saying in other languages, English is the only language allowed in the public chat. You may use your own language to others in private messages.
AFK fishing and AFK fishing machines are not allowed because they are "cheaty" although apart of Minecraft they offer nothing to the server. You AFK for hours and get rare loot while you do nothing. So for that reason they are not allowed.
Minecraft is not very performance optimized and this mob farm causes huge lag because of water updates. Therefore this type of mob farm is not allowed.
Guardians cause huge lag and when everyone builds their bases in Monuments guardians are spawning constantly. You are free to build guardian farms just don't have your base in Ocean Monuments.
As we are a not a PVP server but rather a CO-OP based server, you are not allowed go around killing people unless you have their permission to fight.
Keep it to the Overworld.
Make it have an off switch, don't keep the guardians alive for long and don't have them gather together colliding.
This means any kind of mob or animal hitting off each other in small spaces(1x1, 2x2, 3x3, 4x4 etc). Keep all mobs and animals in large areas unless you have 1 it can be in a 1x1.
Build 200+ blocks away from other peoples builds.
You are allowed to AFK provided that you do not interfere with or hinder other's use of the farm. If you are in the way, or collecting drops from other player's actions, you should not be AFK.
You are not allowed to use any means inside or outside of game to bypass the afk kick timer.
