1. General Server Guidelines!

The PACK Disclaimer and Players Notice!
These rules are not comprehensive and use of loopholes to violate the spirit of these rules is subject to enforcement. Failure to follow these rules will result in being removed from the community! Please follow all of the RULES found here!
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. We endeavor to Update in game and in Discord when there are significant updates.
❝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
If you do not understand how to Merge, OR Join your tribes ASK! ADMINS CAN ASSIST, and or give valuable information to help you prevent loss of tames, or buildings. If you have merged or joined and lost your builds, unfortunately we cannot assist with recovering most buildings ownership.‌
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.

5. Server Building Restrictions

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. This includes using building items to provide yourself with an unfair advantage at claiming loot crates, artifacts and OSD's. If you wish to reign supreme on the map and hog all the resources and enemies, please consider single player.
Building Regulations:
All Building rules are designed around a Solo Player Or a multi-player tribe. No personal bases to those that are tribe members allowed. Unless you are a solo player, and they must abide by the next two rules.
One MAIN Land Claim of no more than 25 x 25 foundations. You may build in the tree with The Pack on the outer branches, or choose your own Giant Tree. Tree locations are marked in the map on the Smallands page.
No Massive constructions (lets not build the Hive of Bees or something like that) or over-use of memory intensive items leading to loss of performance both on client and server-side. Please don't hoard resources, a single box of each resource is enough for a two man tribe!. Plan accordingly.
No Abuse of the claim system where blocks are placed for no other purpose than to prevent other players’ access to resources and building spots. Do not camp dungeons.
Admins will build Storm Shelters, & ramps to access areas of the map difficult for those that have not achieved Flight.
No Blocking of content in the game, such as dungeons, portals, religion sites, bounce pads, memorials, tablets, and resources such as flint, Iron, etc. Do NOT block narrow paths to other areas of the game.
Building Specifics Allowed:
Building in/on Ruins IS allowed but do not block any entrance to other Areas. Please stay as close to the allowed base/outpost size as possible.
Time will not be spent to carefully remove only offending pieces. All constructions belonging to the owner (player or clan) will be destroyed. There will be no refunds of materials or inventories.

7. PVE or PVP?

Player VS Environment
Our server is running in PVE style play. Any aggression to others must be mutually agreed to between the two players (or group of players). Admins Do NOT get involved in Mutual Aggression situations!
