Chat Rules

 
  • Griefing any claimed area, irrespective of your role in said area, is considered as griefing. This includes mayors/town staff stealing from other players or taking money which is not theirs from a town bank.

  • Any form of unauthorised building or destruction within 2 chunks of claimed space is forbidden, and will be punished as griefing.

  • Players must be allowed to collect their items 4 days after being kicked

  • No griefing within 2 plots of an established town (this does not protect chests)

  • No griefing natural terrain within 6 plots of an established town (Player made builds, roads
    etc are not protected outside of the 2 plot rule)(Natural terrain such as trees, grass and mountains are protected)

  • A portal connected to a town is treated as claimed space for the chunks they occupy, and is subject to the same 2 chunk griefing rule.

  • Claiming around a town to prevent growth is seen as harassment, and will be punished by the town being disbanded.

  • Staff are not responsible for items lost in a Shulker Box or the player's second hand. Put items in there at your own risk.

  • NEW! Unclaimed spaces within a town's outer border will no longer be counted as protected by the 2 chunk rule, as the rule is being misused to stretch claims beyond their means by closing unclaimed spaces within claimed spaces.

Griefing & Protection

Claimed

Unclaimed, protected by chunk rule

Unclaimed, not protected by chunk rule

 
  • Towns are allowed a total of 1024 crop blocks for redstone farms - this covers the crops origin block (so for sugar cane it only counts the 1 sugar cane that the rest grow from), however for pumpkins and melons 1 stem counts as 2 blocks toward the limit.

  • No more than 128 item frames may be used per chunk

  • No more than 64 item hoppers may be used per chunk

  • No redstone-assisted block generators, such as basalt/cobble/obsidian/stone generators.

  • No more than 4 spawners per chunk, with no adjacent chunks being used for spawners. Even if you have 1 spawner in a chunk there can be none in the adjacent ones.

Lag Limitations

  • 4 iron golem farms per town, each farm defined as the setup required to spawn a single iron golem.

  • Exchanges involving out-of-server trading (real-world trading or trading in another game/server) are not forbidden. However, TownyClassic does not accept any liability for losses or damages incurred as a result. We do not offer any support for trades outside of the server, though if all trades are undertaken within the server then damages may be brought before staff for resolution. All exchanges made outside of the server are made at your own
    risk.

  • Staff cannot intervene in situations where players ‘nudge’ afk players into dangerous positions without the use of tools. The use of items such as fishing rods or the seismic axe to move an afk player to a dangerous position is forbidden.

  • Do not use a third-party program to automate any form of gameplay, such as mining or fishing.

  • Do not make or use AFK Machines of any sort, even if you do not intend to afk at them

  • Do not use or do anything to intentionally cause lag to another player and or the server

  • The auction house is only to be used for selling items. Any offensive and or inappropriate items will be removed

  • (This limit is per town) Cactus farms are limited to either: 2 vertically unlimited chunks of farm space, or 8 underground farms. Violations will lead to a warning to remove offending farm space within 24 hours, followed by a 24h ban and an automatic removal with no material refund.

  • Do not re-sell mapart gotten trademarked by someone else (if the items description has a name that isn't yours, dont sell it)

  • Do not buy mapart that isn't being sold by the owner (you can check who the real owner is by looking at the description of the mapart)

  • Only set homes in claimed areas with the owners' permission. Do not use homes to bypass set plot permissions.

  • If a town owner has been inactive for 60 days, residents (in order of rank) may submit a ticket to contest ownership of said town. Town ownership claims will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
