Bases and Raids
Trying to block another player base (commonly called griefing) is not allowed, except when raiding, see next rule.
During a Raid you can add doors, locks, TC, traps or any other items, but immediately after the raid you must choose one of the following options:
a) you TAKEOVER the base. This means you will use and maintain the base, making sure the building is not decaying, and placing your sleeping bag inside.
b) you LEAVE the base. This means you will unblock any entrance you placed during the raid, and remove any trap or lock you added during the raid.
If there is any shotgun trap installed that is keeping the owner from entering, you must remove the ammo from this trap or remove it.
The TC should be accessible and with no locks.
Raiding by decay is not allowed, you cannot block a TC and wait for the base to decay, TC must always be accessible.
You are allowed to gift your base. The new owner should change codes, you should not have access to the base, also you should remove any bags/beds you have there and your access to TC.
If you Block a Base and go offline, even if it is for a short period of time, its considered against the rules.
Only ENGLISH is allowed in the chat.
Be nice to other players, they can be your enemies, but still respect them and play fair! (Toxicity and trash talking is not allowed).

Every player that breaks the rules above, will be Kicked, Muted or Banned accordingly, the exact punishment is at discretion of the admin detecting the break.
If the Admin tells you that your activity is violating a rule you must comply to his requests immediately.
Q: If you catch me breaking one of the rules, what happens?
A: Most likely you will be banned from the server. The punishement will be decided by the admin, based on the gravity. But be ready to be banned if you break the rules.
Q: Are bans permanent?
A: We usually clear bans on wipe, but if some player did something very bad or repeated, the ban will be permanent.

A: Contact us on Discord (https://discord.gg/X5QyXrA), PRIVATE message JeffTheChristian or Detoxical
Q: I saw someone breaking the rules or hacking, how can I report him?
A: NEVER report them in game chat, this is useless as the offender will just stop doing what is doing or hide his tracks. Instead contact us on Discord (https://discord.gg/PPFt4E), PRIVATE message KerriganSon. Screenshots,
videos, combatlogs will help us, if you have.
Q: I cannot use voice, so I cannot use Discord, do you have another way to speak?

Q: When is the next wipe?

A: Use the !wipe command in game. Map wipe = only map no blueprints. Full wipe = map and blueprints.

A: No. The server is "vanilla", meaning all settings are default as Facepunch released, and we are not changing any parameter.
Q: I misplaced one wall, can you remove for me?
A: No. We are not removing anything building parts. If you made a mistake you need to fix it yourself.
Q: What does TC/BP/KOS means?
A: TC = Tool Cupboard, BP = Blueprints, KOS = Kill on Sight.
FAQ about SOLO/DUO:

Q: My team mate is off line today, can I play with another guy?
A: No you cannot, as this will be having multiple team mates, which is not allowed.
Q: I have multiple team mates, but we never roam as three, we always roam as only two, so it's a duo.
A: No, our concept of duo is permanent team mates playing together, you cannot change team mate.
Q: My team mate decided to leave the server, can I get a new team mate?
A: Yes, if your team mates leaves the server you can get a new team mate, if he is solo, or if he decides to leave his current team mate permanently.
FAQ about ALLIANCES:
Q: Can I be friendly with my neighbour or is that considered teaming?
A: You can be friendly with your neighbour, but you should never plan anything with him, meaning there should be no coordinated fight/defense/raid/... done together with him. Chatting, trading, and similar are allowed with any player.
Q: My neighbour is getting raided, can I help him defend?
Q: My neighbour is getting raided and attackers are shooting me as well.
A: Purely as personal defense you can shoot back, but try to disengage from the fight as soon as you can. You cannot fight them together with your neighbour, as this is against the rules.
Q: I want to gift some items to this player, is it allowed?
A: Yes, you can do what you want with your items.
Q: I want to gift a base to someone, is it allowed?
A: Yes, but you need to remove your bags from the base, and remove your access from the codelocks and TC.
Q: I want to share this base with another duo, is it allowed?
A: No, you cannot share any bases. One base should be accessible only to one solo/duo team.
Q: My neighbour has a quarry/refinery/furnace I would like to use, can I use it?
A: You cannot. Give your materials to the neighbour and he will smelt and give you back the results. This will be considered as a trade.
FAQ about RAID:
Q: What is griefing?
A: Griefing is blocking access to a TC or to parts of a base, so the owner cannot use it. Rules for raids are in the rules section.
Q: Can I take over a base?
A: Yes you can. To take over you need to have access to the TC and actively mantain the base, adding materials to the cupboard. Also you need to use the base.
Q: During a raid I need to add some doors/walls to protect me, can I do it?
A: Yes, you can. Our suggestion to add doorways, and add walls only if striclty necessary for defense, or can be seen as griefing the base. When you finish the raid you have to remove the doors/locks you placed. If you can destroy walls you added is better, but not required.
Q: During the raid we got counter raided and we had to lock the TC inside walls to ensure enemies couldn't get it. Is this allowed?
A: No. You will have to blow the walls to open again access to TC just after the raid, or be considered griefing.
Q: The enemies are raiding me, they got TC and locked me out, this is griefing, ban them.
A: The admins will not intervene until the raid is finished, and the enemies are gone. Only after some time and if the base is decaying we can intervene and assess if its griefing or not.
Q: How long can a raid be? Is there a limit?
A: There is no limit, but raiding by decay is not allowed, so if we see someone added an empty TC and is waiting the base to decay, this is against the rules.
