RULES

General
  • Respect all players, admins and moderators.

  • No attempts or threats to DDoS other player on the server/s.
  • No disclosing (or threats of disclosing) personal information such as names, addresses or any form of doxxing.
  • If found in association with someone cheating, DDoSing or in violation of any of the rules could result in a ban. (This is decided in a case-by-case basis depending on the circumstances).
  • Any attempts to evade a ban on the server will result in another ban on the new account (typically for a longer duration then the first ban).
  • Any attempts to charge back VIP kits will result in a permanent ban off all Viking Republic servers.
  • No reselling or trading of VIP kits.

Voice & Text Chat
  • No chat spam.
  • No advertising of services or other content that is outside the Viking Republic community. Saying you’re looking for clan members for example is allowed.
  • No forms of discrimination, racism or excessive harassment. This is decided on a case by case basis depending on the circumstances and severity.
  • No clan forgery (stealing someones clan tag).
  • No racist or offensive clan tags or usernames.
Gameplay & Base Design
  • External tool cupboards (referring to TCs surrounding your base) do not need an entrance if they meet this requirement: Maximum 2 layers of walls to get to the TC from any direction. Unless you have doors to the TC, if so you could build any size external TC (that would just be considered a base at that point).
  • External tool cupboards (that follow the rules above) can only store loot necessary for upkeep of that structure. Using walled off external tool cupboards as a form of main loot storage isn’t allowed.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
  • All base designs must follow all rules listed below. 

  • Any building methods available on vanilla servers that do not incorporate fully walled off loot into their design are allowed – as long as they comply with all other building rules in this list.
  • Walled off loot is not allowed. 
  • All loot must have a path to it of some sort, such as doors. 
  • If you need /remove to access the loot its not allowed.
  • Using a hammer to get access to the loot (for example: to remove a window bar), is allowed. 
  • “Unlootable” loot – referring to where if you break the TC or loot box the loot cannot be accessed without destroying more walls – is allowed.
  • If someone authorized on the tool cupboard/loot box can interact with the loot its allowed. 
  • Griefing is allowed – as long as it complies with the building rules above. If for example you are raiding a base and wall off someone else’s loot or tool cupboard you would be breaking the rules. 
  • Logging off in a fully walled off area with loot on you is considered walled off loot and is not allowed. 
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
  • Bases built in the water do not have to be visible from land, however, the base must have an above water element to it (no fully underwater bases). It must have at least 2 visible full walls above water (not half walls).
  • Any cave bases with a water bucket entrance must have an entrance on the other side. The water bucket side can be walled off. The water bucket side isn’t deemed to be an entrance.
  • No offensive signs or “art” in public areas.
  • No teleport bases (bases with no entrance). Having the entrance on the roof is okay, as long as its accessible by using twig stairways. 
  • No exploiting of teleport command (walling yourself in a location only to TP out).
  • No abuse of the remove tool (walling off loot etc.).
  • No spamming TC’s in an area that you aren’t building in. This refers specifically to flat areas where no one has already built. Placing TC’s around someone elses base as a form of griefing is allowed.
