Quetzals are the only flyer permitted on Aberration
- Rafts are not considered a base, therefore it does not count as a raid if your raft gets destroyed.

General Behavior

Attitude
We really are glad to have happy players! But if you convince us you would be happier
somewhere else by verbally attacking the server or admins, we will help encourage you to find
somewhere else with a friendly ban. Please remember that having a cooperative attitude to the
rules works better for everyone than arguing with or trying to go around them.

Speech & Names
Don’t spew derogatory (e.g. racist, sexist) language on the server. Please don’t spread rumors.

Insiding, Bullying, and Raging
Insiding will get you banned. If your tribe splits off one or members let them take their fair share.
Don’t bully or threaten anyone on the server. Smack talk is allowed. Threatening that someone
will get banned if they don’t change what they are doing, threatening to throw a tribe mate out
repeatedly, etc is just abusive. Don’t be abusive. Anyways, rulebreakers are handled by admins,
not players.

Impersonation
No impersonating admins in any capacity. No impersonating other tribes. Players have a right to
get admin comments directly from an admin.

Griefing
No griefing is allowed in any form. This is a pvp server; but you shouldn’t make people's life hell
without reason. Admins may rule excessive, repeated, and/or hostile actions to be a form of
griefing. Similarly popcorning items in now against the rules. It is up to players to prove to the
admins that popcorning happened. If we don't have conclusive evidence (in our eyes) we won't
take action against them. Lastly, missing loot you expected to find is not conclusive evidence.
People can hide stuff. Please note sniping passive tames in the open isn’t considered griefing
on it’s own, there are other factors that are taken into consideration such as what kind of tame it
was, how many, and where they were. Due to the recent addition of Extinction into the cluster, kiting any corrupted dinos to players/tribe bases would be considered griefing. Doing such action will result in a ban.

You may keep a player hostage for an hour a day.

Over-encumbering Tamed Dinos
Do not over encumber a dino by grappling to it while you have an excessive amount of weight
on you due to the fact you’re wearing a backpack from the donation station, we are aware of
how much weight a player can put on themselves if they put every point into weight. Any player
breaking this rule may be subject to an immediate ban.

Flyers on Aberration
Flyers make aberration too easy. You may not have them on the server. The only exception to the rule is the storing of cryopodded flyers for use on other servers.

Abusing Glitches
No abusing glitches of any form. If you find one, talk with an admin about it. In particular, please
do not clip structures on a platform or a raft through another structure. Further, some mod
effects are clearly not intended. Don’t take advantage of them without asking first. Significant
abuse will result in an immediate ban.


PvP Rules

Open World
Everything outside the confines of a base and outside the warzone in an active raid counts as
the open world. Dinos in a non-enclosed dino pen are considered outside the confines of a
base, unless the base has raid protection and said dinos are behind signs.

Raid Rules
We define raids as destroying structures to get at loot or harm a tribe. Most situations where you destroy a structure may count as a raid however the following do not:
Sniping dinos in the open. (Unless they are behind RP signs)
Rafts are not considered a base, therefore it does not count as a raid if your raft gets destroyed.
Clearing spammed foundations or a decaying base.
It is strongly advised to let an admin know if you are considering these things and are raid protected. If they aren’t available. Take screenshots!

After the first 3 days of the wipe date, raiding may begin. You may raid up to 3 tribes in a 24
hour period. A raid is removed from the raids you have done based on when you finish it, not
when you start it. Repeat raiding of much weaker tribes will be considered griefing.
Being sniped at base, picked up and carried away, having dinos get killed from a distance, etc do not count as raids. Unless both raiders and defenders gree otherwise in public in game chat, 12 people may take part on either side of a raid. (Total 24) This includes non-allied participants joining in the fray. Raid as you want to be raided. You may only  foundation-wipe a tribe base if you have intentions to build at said location. Putting up a 2x2 with turrets and claim that to be your base, will only result in yourself getting wiped by the admins. We expect that after you wipe, you put up a base(Crafting Stations/Turrets/Dinos) immediately. You will receive 24hrs to have a base up at the wiped location, however you must start building immediately. Structure spamming is not allowed in a raid by either side. Attackers and defenders may have up to 2 fobs for their side at once. If a fob needs moved, remove the beds from it and disable turrets to mark it as being deconstructed. Only one fob may be in excess deconstruction phase at a time. Rebuilding structures is not possible within a radius of a destroyed structure for 5 minutes. All fobs and structures placed in a raid must be picked up when the raid is over. Begin doing so as soon as you announce that you are finished raiding. Once you announce the raid is over the defending tribe must allow you to remove the fob, if they don’t provide the admins with proof that they continued to attack you after you announced the raid was over, you may leave the fob up if they continue to attack you after announcing you are done raiding.
Advice regarding base wiping rule:
-You should avoid destroying unlocked structures.
-You can see the carry weight on a dino with SEL Vision binoculars/spyglass/etc. If they have 25 or less weight, chances are it’s just the saddle and you should not kill the dino if passive.
-If structures are locked, or dinos are carrying stuff, you SHOULD screenshot in case the raided tribe complains otherwise. You are still allowed to destroy these things, but destruction will be found excessive much more quickly than in the past.


Passive Dinos
Passive dinos do not have special protections on this server. But the status of the dino is
considered when looking at griefing. (Aggressive dinos are less significant than passive ones).
Put your dinos in an enclosure to avoid them getting sniped.

Raid Protection Rules
New Players, and Tribes that surrendered or took extremely serious damage during a raid at
their only/main base may request raid protection for up to 5 days at the discretion of an admin.
This consists of signs placed around a base warning players that they may be banned for
attacking whatever is behind the signs. Only a single base maybe protected at a time and no
stuff from another tribe may be in that base during raid protection. Furthermore, protected tribes
may not raid. This is also includes no raiding across any of the map. If you have raid protection you may not participate in a raid in any way shape or form. If you have raid protection you may not have your any other tribes loot inside your base. If you are comfortable raiding, you don’t need protection. Lastly, by making a comment in tribe chat, taking down the signs, and personal messaging an admin in discord you may end raid protection early. Tribes may move the signs or bases during raid protection. They may not change their tribe name, protect more than one base, land grab with the signs, or post anything other than the text on discord on the signs. (You can copy paste). You must take signs down when raid pro is up. Raid protection does not apply to open world. You may PvP but if you attack someone first they may follow you back. If they attack you first, getting to base is a successful escape. Boats are not considered bases and will not be given raid protection. An enclosed dock area however may be. Boats may be destroyed during the building period.

Building

Structures
Tribes are allowed 2 land bases and one water base (may be on the shore). More will be
considered spam. We do not allow spam unless its edible and served in the Hawaiian fashion.
No undermeshing intentionally. No structure Glitching. No unreasonable structure spam. No building at spawn points. If a trike can’t walk(or swim) through an entrance, than you are not allowed to build at that location.

Platform Saddles
Platform saddles may have one ramp, otherwise no building down. The driver and riders must
be shootable and pick-up-able by flyers, drivers and riders can not be covered, no more than 1
wall high around the driver or rider and no more than 3 walls around the driver or rider. We may
kill dinos in violation of this rule and ban repeat offenders. Please ask if you think you have a
clever build or don’t know if it's in the rules. It just takes a screenshot. Only up to 2 manned
turrets are allowed on platform saddles. No raid dinos or rafts that block turrets from shooting at
the driver. You can park them outside turret range as a FOB if you so choose. In other words
you need to tank turrets while raiding! No using structures to get around that. Tek Shields,
Teleporters, Transmitters and the like are not allowed on platform saddles, dinos or on rafts
being used to raid.

Floating Structures
Floating structures of any kind are not allowed under any circumstance. This includes but not
limited to bases, turret towers, fobs, and dino pens.

Turrets
Turrets are only allowed at bases and fobs. Anywhere else will be considered random. If you
are assisting an ally attack or defend a base the tribes owning the fobs and the base should
place the turrets. This is to prevent confusion. You may not put auto turrets of any form on a
platform saddle. Boats are ok. Turret spam is not allowed because it causes lag, you may have
a few hundred; but if it causes problems an admin will ask you to take a few down or will remove
them themselves.

Other Structures/Spam
You are not allowed to spread structures outside your base to prevent fob placement, resource
respawning, or dino spawning. You are not allowed to leave teleport shacks around the map. If
you have a temporary one (say for life’s labyrinth) and take it down it’s ok IF you take it down.
You must take down taming pens. Admins will if you don’t. Repeat offenders will be warned.

Tribe Rules
Tribes may have a maximum of 8 players, and you are allowed to have 1 ally per tribe with you. Tribes must have the same tribe name, player names and players across all maps. Ally ORPs cannot overlap, but you may build near each other. Shields from different tribes should not be stacked either. Each tribe is allowed 2 bases on land, and one base in the water (or bordering the water). You will be asked to remove excess bases and small shacks that do not function as bases. Should it be necessary for a tribe to split. The leaving members are entitled to a reasonable fair share of goods. The majority of players should keep the base. Leaving players should get most of their dinos, some of the bps (not necessarily all the best or only the worst) and crafting structures to help set up a new base. Raid pro is lost when merging into a tribe without raid protection. Raid protected tribes may not be merged into. Further allies and traders need to stay outside their base for the duration of raid protection. Storing goods for an allied tribe will nullify your raid pro. Pretending to have it will get the admin to oversee a surrender of your base. Each tribe has a 240 tame limit per tribe to help mitigate lag. There are ways to bypass this cap such as cryopods and vivariums. No more than 2 tek shields at each base. If you have 2 fobs set up for raiding only 1 of them can have a tek shield. If you are raiding with an ally they can have a tek shield, however the tek shields can’t be overlapping. Going above this limit will not be tolerated and an admin may ask you to remove one, or they may to it themselves if you refuse. No two tribes can have the same name, you will be asked by an admin to change it. If you dont you might be banned.

Getting Admin Help and Donating
You can get admin help in game or in discord. Please type instead of using voice and be direct.
You don’t need to ask if you can ask a question. We may be busy and we may be waiting to get
you at a time we are both on. The admins do run a PvE trading post on the server. It sells dinos
and sometimes resources for other in game items. Donations can be sent via paypal to
[email protected] Please include your in-game name with the donation.
We give small rewards to donators. $10 is worth 1000 coins (double the week of donating, 1000
per wipe for three months after). Coins can be used to buy blueprints, items that increase carry
weight while equipped, and dinos. All donator items can be obtained through raids or taming
wild dinos.

Banned Base Locations
Bases may not be built to block significant resource spots, obelisks, artifacts, or bosses. Also,
do not block cave/underwater loot drops. There should be a good safety zone for people to get
the above listed significant items.

Ragnarok:
Scotland Crystal Cave 19.8 78.8
Snow Crystal Cave 37.5 59.2 and 40.0 62.7
Pfifer Plateaus Cave 85.0 51.1 and 84.5 52.5
Triple Waterfall in Desert 55.0 56.9
Unnamed Death Sand Caves 78.9 78.5 and 77.0 82.0
Glacier Cave - Several Entrances around 30 34
Waterfall Crystal Cave 55.1 55.6
Jungle Metal Cave 35.4 24.1

Extinction: The top of the skyscraper in the city. (It is too close to the death barrier.)

Aberration: No building on choke points/roads in ways that prevent easy passage along major
routes, especially in between biomes. If someone has to travel a long distance to avoid your
base turrets you are doing it wrong.
