No swearing/cussing, improper language, or mature topics
AutCraft has many younger players so chat must be kept family-friendly at all times. The following list includes a few examples of topics that ARE NOT ALLOWED, but it is not an extensive list. If a staff member asks you to stop saying something, please stop immediately.Game Play Guidelines
The following are not allowed and may result in punishment:
- Abusing glitches – duplication glitches, economy or plugin glitches, etc. are not allowed on AutCraft. All glitches or server glitches should be reported immediately.
- AFK and Flying machines – Any machines or builds that move the player to avoid being kicked or to travel are strictly forbidden.
- Unapproved mods & Clients – No unapproved mods or clients may be used on AutCraft. Please review the approved mods list for a list of mods that are allowed.
AutCraft protects the builds of players to prevent others from damaging them, the following guidelines must apply to all builds in order to be protected:
- Builds must be at least 30 blocks away from the nearest build belonging to another player.
- The corners of a protection must be marked to receive a protection. If a build is underground, the “markers” MUST be placed above ground.
- You can have up to 5 other players on a protection.
- Group builds (towns, hotels, etc.) will be protected like any other base (1 owner, 5 members) and must follow the guidelines mentioned above.
- Builds MUST be in a build world to be protected.
Griefing refers to the intentional, unapproved editing or damaging of another player’s property. This is not acceptable behavior for any reason. To report griefing, please type “/modreq I was griefed” and a staff member will assist you.
Family Friendly Builds Only
- Damaging another player’s build, even if it is not protected.
- Killing another player’s pets or mobs.
- Stealing items from unprotected chests.
- Protecting builds, chests, or doors that do not belong to you.
We hope that everyone on Autcraft uses good judgment about building things appropriate for use in minecraft on a family friendly server. If while exploring you find an inappropriate build, please type '/modreq inappropriate build' while standing nearby. An admin will take a look as soon as possible and remove it if necessary.
We will remove builds that we deem inappropriate, including but not limited to: Any symbol, emblem, or shape that represents an intolerant or hateful group. Any representation of male or female private body part(s). Any swearing or hateful words spelled out with blocks, on signs, or in books.
Please do not build "adults only" establishments, including casinos, bars, and nightclubs. References to alcohol or drugs in builds or item names are not allowed on Autcraft.Skins and Banners
If your skin or banner is used with intent to scare, annoy, harass, or impose a view or position on to other players, a helper or admin may ask you to change your skin and/or remove the banner before returning to gameplay. Skins and Banners need to be family-friendly including but not limited to:
One Account Per Player
- No Herobrine, Creepypasta, or Five Nights at Freddy's skins.
- No blood or gore of any kind on skins.
- No indecent exposure or naked skins.
Alternative and shared accounts are not allowed for any reason on AutCraft. Alternative accounts will be removed from the white-list and shared accounts will be handled accordingly by staff.Trapping/Killing Players
The intentional trapping or killing of a player on AutCraft will not be tolerated. Traps will be removed and the player responsible will be punished accordingly.Public Builds
If you decide to make a build for community use, it is your responsibility to maintain it. Public builds will be protected following the previously mentioned Protection Guidelines.Redstone
Staff reserves the right to request any build be removed if it is too demanding of the server. All redstone builds MUST abide by the following:
- No continuously running redstone clocks or machines
- No more than 50 hoppers can be used in a build.
As a large survival server with hundreds of different players on each day, we must limit the number of pets each player can have in order to reduce lag. The follow limits have been set for the benefit of the entire server.
You are allowed to have 10 of each animal type with the following exceptions:
- Sheep: You may have 10 sheep at any given time if all 1 color. If you have a sheep farm you are allowed 2 of each color.
- Villagers: You may have 15 villagers at any given time.
Gameplay GuidelinesNo Cheating/Hacking
- Do not leave any pets sitting in any area that is not yours. Admins will not know who they belong to and they will be removed and you will not have the opportunity to get the animal back.
- Pets are not damage-proof! If you take them out of your area, they may not be safe. Wolves and cats are damaged by arrows and flames and wolves can take fall damage.
- We recommend you keep pets safe at home.Take care of your pets in the game as you would a pet in real life.

On Autcraft we try to be fair and understanding. We have several tools to help us maintain a safe and family-friendly environment. What tool is used is at the discretion of the staff member online at the time. In most situations, there will be one or more verbal warnings in public and/or private messages.If you or your child experiences any of these consequences, you can contact any staff member in game via private chat, /helpop, or the Facebook page. Please include the player’s username when inquiring via email or Facebook. We advise all parents to frequently check the emails provided in the whitelist application for updates concerning the player.Mute
Mutes prevent the players from speaking in chat or channels and are generally reserved for chat violations. You will usually be messaged concerning why you were muted and can often respond via a book or signs. Admins can also be contacted with /helpop.Jail
Jail is a room that players cannot leave or interact with other players. Jail is typically, but not exclusively, reserved for violations of gameplay rules. Players may be held there until staff can contact their parent or guardian.Ban
In extreme cases, players who repeatedly make poor choices will be temporarily unable to access the Autcraft server. The timeframe is at the discretion of the admins, however, some players will remain banned until their parents can be contacted to help us help the player better understands the rules.Whitelist Removal
Rarely, but sometimes, players are removed from the whitelist and given a chance in the future to apply again. This is used for players who are continually destructive or show signs that they are not ready to participate in a multiplayer server.Note to PlayersThis is not an extensive list of the rules and behaviors expected of AutCraft players.
