Gameplay Rule 6 - Farm Rules

We ask that players do all things in moderation and adhere to these guidelines

General Farm Rules

  • Don’t cause lag with excessive TNT, entities (farm harvests, ore mining), etc.
  • Players who create builds with the intent to lag or crash the server will be banned. No over-the-top farms are allowed.
  • Your massive mob farm will not get the rates you’re expecting on a server, and you really don’t need 20 double chests of melons and pumpkins and cactus (e.g. Pumpkin Farming). Instead focus your energies on creativity and building something pretty rather than laggy.

Redstone Rules

  • Don’t run high-frequency clocks. All redstone clocks must have an “off switch”. Again, this takes up server resources and causes others to lag.
  • If your build needs a clock, please ensure this is running at a reasonably slow tick rate to avoid negative impacts on server performance.
  • Please be moderate with your hopper use, as these can create more lag than a running clock. We use a hopper timings limiter and large amounts of items dumped into a hopper system will likely result in a clog or severely slowed transfers.
  • Farms using nether portals are not allowed. These foolishly load chunks in the corresponding world, creating lag and unnecessary memory use. Pigman spawns in portals have been disabled and any additional abuse of this mechanic will result in all players losing the ability to send entities through portals.
