Simple Survival is designed to be a simple vanilla Minecraft experience with friends. We strive to create a welcoming and friendly environment for all our players to enjoy. As such, the rules listed below we expect all our players to adhere to without exception. 
#1 Respect All Players
#2 Cheating and Glitches

Due to the nature of modified clients and their ability to heavily alter users in-game abilities, these clients are banned on Simple Survival. 

The only clients you may use are the following:

  • Minecraft's vanilla client.

  • Optifine

If caught, even if you're not using any game-changing modifications, you will be banned. 

Similarly to modified clients, abusing glitches is also against the rules. There are no exceptions to these rules.

These rules are in place for a simple reason. There is very little we can do on our side to prove what mods you are and are not using on a client like Forge and they are easily hidden. 

Behaviour which is not allowed:

  • Being obnoxious in global chat

  • Discussing controversial topics in global chat that may offend or cause an argument. 

  • Discrimination - negative comments related to skin colour, gender, or other personal qualities.

  • Overuse of bad language

  • Trolling players

  • Insulting other players in any way

  • Encouraging violence or hatred towards other players

  • Falsifying information about other players

  • Sharing another player’s personal information without their consent

  • Spamming - pasting the same or similar messages over and over

  • Talking about self-harm, or other deeply negative experiences

  • Non-English in chat - As it is hard to moderate and uphold rules in several languages. 

  • Using /prefix to impersonate staff or free ranks higher than your current rank.

#3 Griefing

Griefing is the act of irritating and angering people through the use of destruction or construction.

General rules: 

  • Do Not build within 50 blocks of other players claim without permission. (This rule does NOT apply to community builds and towns)

  • Do Not interfere with other players claims or builds in any way.

  • No Killing or harming other players anywhere on the server.

  • No constructing offensive structures.

  • Staff will NOT rollback damage done close to your claim if you had the blocks available to claim the land griefed and didn't do so.

  • Otherwise, report any grief to a member of staff and we will restore all damage and remove the player from the server. 


#4 Additional Rules

The server has a 15-minute timeout counter that will kick you if you're idle for long periods of time. 

You may not do the following:

  • Use auto clickers to reset the timer.

  • Create AFK machines that reset the timer with player motion. This includes fishing farms.

  • Use alternate accounts to AFK for you.

In-game money and items.

You are not allowed to:

  • Be disingenuous about the value of an item to gain it for a lot cheaper than market value.

  • Sell items for an absurdly large amount. (£1m for a melon).

  • Trade an in-game item or virtual currency for real-world money. 

  • Use a dishonest scheme to steal money from another player.
