Mods and Cheats

What mods are allowed?#

NostalgiaCraft is a vanilla gameplay server, so we are fairly lenient on what types of mods you are allowed to use. Among the approved mods are:

  • Client Performance Improvement Modifications#
    Modifications which simply seek to improve the performance of the Minecraft client without making changes to the game itself, such as Optifine.
  • Aesthetic Modifications#
    Modifications which change only the look and feel of the game without modifying gameplay, such as standard shader modifications or resource packs. These must not change the properties of blocks (e.g. make non-transparent blocks transparent) or change the players perspective (e.g. allowing them to see around or over objects they normally wouldn't be able to).
  • Cosmetic Modifications#
    Modifications which alter the look and feel of the in-game head-up display (HUD) without adding extra information which would normally be unavailable to the player are allowed, such as armor and status effects, fullbright, and mini-maps.

What is not allowed?#

Modifications that alter the way your Minecraft client interacts and communicates with our server are not allowed. Please check that any modifications used are strictly client side only, and don't change the behavior of the game. An exploit, cheat, or unfair advantage is considered something that abuses the Minecraft protocol/mechanics/code to gain an unfair advantage. Interpretation of these rules are subject to the staff's discretion.

Use at your own risk:#

  • Autoclickers#
    This does not include combat autoclickers, which are bannable and detected by Overwatch. This section only includes AFK autoclickers and other automation tools used during AFK sessions for farms, etc. They must be used with care, as many of them are viruses, badly coded, or harmful. Some may send malicious packets to the server and cause you to be banned for other hacks. Some may be advertised as autoclickers but in reality are hacks. Regardless, you accept any consequences that are a result of AFK autoclicking. Common causes of AFK autoclicker misuse:
+ High CPS (clicks per second)
+ Badly coded autoclickers (not swinging arm when attacking)
+ Using actual hacks
+ Using combat autoclickers
+ Sending hacked client packets
Warning

Use AFK autoclickers and automation at your own risk! If you accidentally misuse an autoclicker and get banned by Overwatch, the ban will not be appealed.

  • Autoreconnect#
    Autoreconnect is a mod that automatically reconnects you to the server if you get kicked. Generally its use is "allowed", but highly discouraged. This is because you have the potential to be banned for botting the server. If you get kicked and are not able to rejoin the server, your client will repeatedly ping the server over and over, nonstop, spamming the console. Effectively, this is a bot/DDoS attack. This is why bans relating to auto-reconnect are not appealable. Autoreconnect may be considered a bot attack
