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. 

  • Respect the fact that other players have put a lot of time into builds, map arts, banners etc. Anything directly stolen from another player without permission is unfair to that player and is against the rules. Especially if the stolen item/idea is used for self profit i.e. In a player shop. 

  • Public areas should be accessible to all players. Claims may be removed if they're found to be obstructing a public area without notice.                                                                                                                                          Examples include:

    • Claiming shop plots within the player market area stopping future owners from building within the plot.

    • Claiming end portals so that other players can't use them.

    • Claiming parts of any public warp.


#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. (This includes putting weight on a key to simulate auto-clicking).

  • 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.

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

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

Player shop plots.

  • You cannot rent a shop plot with the intention to sell it for a profit to another player.

  • If selling a plot, you may not charge more than 2 weeks of that plot's rent.

  • You cannot charge a player more than you pay in rent to have shops on your plot if sharing.

  • Empty shops can/will be removed 

  • Any shops seen to be attempting to scam players will be removed and the owner warned.

  • Do not place beacons in or around the shopping district.

  • The shopping district is to be treated like any other claim. If you build within 50 blocks your build may be removed.
