❝Your presence in this server implies accepting these rules, including all further changes. We reserve the right to modify these rules in any way we deem necessary and at any moment, at our own discretion, it is your responsibility to check for them. ❞
Personal Responsibility & Tribal/Clan Membership
Please read through and consider the spirit of the rules, not just the specific wording. And make sure your clanmates are also aware of them as their actions can affect you. Any infraction by a player will most likely have repercussions for the entire clan. If you’re not sure your clanmates will abide by the rules you might want to reconsider your membership in that tribe/clan. And if you do not plan on playing on a specific server any more it is often best to also leave your tribe/clan there.
Admin Involvement in Tribal Affairs
Admins rarely get involved in intra-tribal(things going on inside a tribe) issues and or inter-tribal(things between two tribes) issues. UNLESS the altercations escalate to the stage of griefing or harassment.
Hacks & Exploits

Hacks and exploits are not tolerated. This is a BAN first, ask questions later mater.

Real-Money Trading (RMT) - GAME items, creatures, or services must only be exchanged for other items, creatures, or services within the game. Trading for real-world currency (real money) is not an accepted form of trading and is forthwith prohibited on our cluster.
Hacks are uses of third-party programs that inject code and modify aspects of the game to provide unfair advantage against other players. Utilizing such will lead to action taken against your access to our servers and flags added to your Steam ID.
Exploits are uses and abuses of game mechanics to obtain an unfair advantage over other players including creating a detrimental play experience through reduced server or game performance.

2. Infractions

We work on a "3 Strikes Method"
  • Strike One: You and your Tribe/Clan get a warning. This can be Slept tames to Us removing the offending objects or tames. And a Sign informing you of the offense.
  • Strike Two: We have to talk to you about a new rule or you broke the same one again. You can have creatures or buildings removed up to a Temp BAN. Temp Bans are 3 to 5 days without access to the servers.
  • Strike Three: We are done, and you are Perm Banned.
Furthermore, If someone is a participant of our Discord, and/or a Player on our Servers, A ban on Discord may also be pursued on the Server Cluster. We do not issue warnings ahead of Admin intervention. Hacking, or using Exploits and other situations deemed as extreme will be met with a permanent ban on the first offense.
Reporting Infractions
  • Our team will get back to you using the private thread provided. Please make sure you provide the best information you can at the time of your report. This means relaying as much information as you can to help our team investigate. This includes, but is not limited to, screenshots, videos, timestamps, names of characters and guilds, and a good description of the issue. To get a "CCC" use the command /whatsmyccc in any Discord Channel. You will receive a message with instructions.

4. Auto-decay

Wipes are only done when a save is corrupted or a mod errors and requires a full server wipe. Instead of wipes, our admin team relies on CSMN (a mod) that allows our 7DTD Admin team to set up reset quadrants so that POI are refreshed. All Servers are "SWEPT" (our term for the mod/Admin cleaning) in a rough schedule of every six weeks. Any tribe that is fully inactive (45 days of no log ins) will be structure wiped. Keeping our maps mostly clean and ready for new players.

It is the responsibility of the Player to make sure they refresh all timers on the servers they play on.

The PACK PVE | A21 | Servers. Land Claims last for 21 Days and are fully protected during those 21 days, At 21 days the claims are unprotected, and can be looted or removed by Admins.
You must RENDER the items to actually prevent the decay of the item this can take up to a 15 min. interval in your base moving about to properly render in all sections of the build in your players render radius. (Render radius 15 meters in a circle) In general, higher-tier structures will last longer than lower-tier structures.
Bedrolls: Bedrolls have a 15 block Deadzone around them and the bedroll will last for 45 days, before decay. Please refresh your bedrolls or remove then when done with an area.
Any tribe that is fully inactive (45 days of no log ins) will be structure wiped by admins. Please advise the admin team of prolonged (over 25 days) absences if you are not abandoning your base.
DO NOT destroy/claim/or remove parts of ANY ADMINS, OWNERS, or Community Buildings, EVEN IF DECAYED! You will be banned.

5. Server Building Restrictions

Please remember that there are other players sharing the server with you. Restricting others’ access to content is not allowed beyond of course grabbing a spot for your base.
