Minecraft Server Rules

These rules are additional rules on top of the Alinea Community Rules. These community rules can be found on our Discord server, in #👮|rules.

The Minecraft server is trust-based, and breaking these rules means you betrayed the trust of the community. You will be banned from the Minecraft server permanently. We do not do temporary bans.


You are responsible for anything you do, regardless on whether it is intentional or not. Damage done by creepers that blow up is damage done by you. If players fall in a trap you built, you trapped the player. You will be responsible for this. We assume all players know all rules, and not knowing a rule does not excuse you from responsibility. 

Be a friendly neighbour (FRND)

Consensual interactions are key on this server. 

  1. All interactions with other players must be consensual.
  2. Do not attack or kill players or their pets without their consent.
  3. Do not steal or grief.
  4. Do not build any traps that might inconvenience others.
  5. When a player dies near you, do not simply watch their items despawn. Make a best effort to recover them, taking into account your own safety.
  6. All roleplay must be consensual. Not everyone is into roleplay, respect them for this. Lawsuits are considered roleplay.

Respect the environment (ENVI)

To make sure the world stays as beautiful as it was when it first spawned, some rules are in place. Even though no one may live in an area now, this doesn't mean no one will in the future. 

Rule ENVI-5 allows other players to claim your land if you go inactive. If you want to lay claim to someone else's land, it is best to discuss this with a member of staff first. What counts as active use of the land depends on the magnitude of a use, as well as how long you have been active in the past as a player. We might reasonably expect someone who has played for a year and built a massive castle to return after a few weeks of inactivity, but do not be surprised if someone removed your day-1 dirt shack after you haven't logged in for two weeks.

If you want to prevent others from claiming your land while you are temporarily inactive, place signs around your area explaining you will be absent, and when you expect to return. 

  1. Do not grief any terrain. Do not cause forest fires or blow up large areas. Do not blockade rivers other people have settled on.
  2. Replant saplings when gathering wood.
  3. Do not leave floating trees behind.
  4. Remove nerd poles you built.
  5. Any land you are using is yours. Any land you are not actively using is not.
  6. Do not move into or near someone else's land.
  7. Trespassing is allowed, unless the owner of the land has clearly indicated it is not.

Do not cause lag or crashes (LGCR)

We do not put heavy restrictions on what type of farms you are allowed to build, but in exchange we expect you to be responsible with them. In general, we advise you to avoid using chests and hoppers, disable hoppers that don't need to be turned on, or placing composters on top of them, and to avoid flickering lights or continuously placing and removing water.

Villager halls are allowed within the restrictions laid down, but players are advised to discuss with staff first before building their hall.

  1. Do not cause any lag, or build anything that does.
  2. Do not cause the server or other players to crash, or build anything that does.
  3. Do not build or use chunk loaders.
  4. Only four villagers are allowed per household. Please living in the same building count as one household. Villager halls exceeding this amount of villagers are allowed in isolated areas far away from any settlements or factories, including your own, in chunks that would be unloaded if the villagers are not being used.

Do not cause lag or crashes (EXPL)

Exploiting the game is not allowed. This ensures the game is fair for everyone. Modifications are allowed as long as they follow the principles laid down in these rules. You can find a list of modifications we recommend on our mods page

With exploits, what is important is the ends, not the means. If you find amethyst nodes, dungeons or caves using a cave map or free cam, that is still x-raying.

  1. Do not exploit the game. This includes duping items or blocks, flying, and xraying.
  2. TNT duplication is not allowed.
  3. Breaking bedrock is allowed.
  4. You are only allowed to own two elytras at a time. You can sell these elytras if you wish.
  5. Modifications that play the game for you are not allowed. This includes auto-building and auto-fishing.
  6. Auto clickers and minimaps are allowed. Modifications that automatically switch tools and items, that automatically eat, or that automatically equip armour, are explicitly allowed.
  7. Schematic modifications are allowed insofar they assist you in building. Modifications that build for you are not allowed.
