While we aim for basic survival at heart, Endless Horizons has so much more to offer. Our Custom Mobs (powered by MythicMobs) and Dungeons add a whole new aspect to surviving, especially later in the game once you get your fancy Diamond Armor. A huge array of custom Crafting Recipes and Powerups give more freedom in survival and can tip the scales in dangerous situations. But the biggest feature we offer, by far, are our extensive SURVIVAL PERKS, the likes of which many others servers typically restrict to Donators. Perks are awarded based primarily on play-time, and players can RANK UP to different levels to unlock more perks!
For those looking to support the server, we offer a variety of Serverwide Donation Perks, so everyone can parttake if the rewards! Most perks last only 24-hours, but can really change the survival experience!
Server & Forum Rules
1: No Modding/Glitching
We run a server which does not allow hacks, like X-ray, Nodus, flyhacks, et al. Someone found to be modding will face instant consequences, most likely a ban. The only mods we allow are Optifine, shaders (such as SEUS) and inventory tweaks. Glitching is a less serious offense. But some can be exploited to almost modding like experiences. Which earns a modding like punishment.This includes bugs in the game and dupe glitches. Honestly, with all the cool perks we offer, we can't understand why you would need to hack anyways...
2: No Griefing.
This should be clear by the fact that we have several anti-grief plugins. Griefing earns you a ban, and a rollback depending on the grief. To protect land from griefers, please use Iron Blocks as the Precious Stones plugin allows that area to be protected. Griefing includes taking items from farms, breaking and entering without fixing and lava spam
2.1: Raidables and Dungeons
While griefing personal property of others is not permitted, we often have custom dungeons and raidables materialize around the survival worlds. These Dungeons will be clearly marked, and if you find one, you may do with it as you please (grief, raid, claim, destroy...even live in it)!
3: No excessive curses
We try to run a server which is acceptable for all age groups. That being said, we understand that some words are a part of people's vocabulary. Please keep this to a minimum, but occasionally things happen. This policy is more directed towards bigoted remarks and racial slurs, which are not tolerated.
4: No spamming or use of excessive CAPS LOCK.
Nobody likes to see their chat clogged up with spam, or full CAPITALIZED messages. Following warnings you may be muted. And banned if this continues. Likewise, /me is not to be used to attract attention to yourself. We will remove it from offenders.
5: Do not beg for Ranks/OP
Those who ask, do not get. We give Staff/OP to only the members we (the staff) trust entirely. Being on the server for an hour is not a qualification nor a right to earn Moderator/Admin. Begging for ranks is irritating and will only decrease your chances of ever getting one.
6: Your account is your responsibility.
"My dog ate my homework" is a prime example of an excuse nobody believes. "My Brother hacked my account" Is also one we do not believe. If you have broken a rule and been banned for it. Do not claim it was your friend/brother/parent/goldfish. Your account, is your responsibility. And you and you alone will face the punishments given.
7: Respect the players, and the Staff.
The only way to achieve a friendly community is to have players that actually respect one another. This is crucial! People do not take the time to actually take into consideration that they're actually playing alongside other real players with real feelings. Anyone found to be insulting another Player or member of Staff will be dealt with.
8: Staff have a final say in every matter.
The Staff are here to run the server efficiently, and remove anyone who is upsetting the general public of the server. We're not paid to run the place, we do it out of our own time. So we don't appreciate having our efforts ridiculed. However, we do have to make difficult decisions sometimes that some people will not agree with. We do our best to accommodate for the majority of the playerbase and the Staff when these tough decisions arrive. But not everyone will be happy. If you truly have an issue with a member of our Staff or their decisions, report it on Forums or our Discord. Ingame arguments are not allowed and you will most likely be muted and told to take your distaste to Forums.
9: Mob spawners, grinders, and the like.
Building auto-grinding machines that funnel mobs into a killing room is forbidden. If you want to build any kind of mob farm other than a default dungeon, contact the staff. We'll let you know when you've built enough.
10: Do not evade punishments.
If you have been punished for breaking a rule, do not attempt to evade it by messaging Staff with childish demands to be unmuted/jailed. Or sending your friend online to demand your unban. It just irritates the Staff and the people having to listen to the attempts. Likewise, if you do manage to weasel out of your punishment you can be sure the most severe punishment of Permanent Ban awaits you. If you're muted, do not use /me to talk. If you're banned and you come online with an Alt, you'll quickly be IP-Banned. Take your punishment for what it is, and if you truly oppose these decisions you can always appeal on the Forums.
11: Do not Advertise other Servers.
We have no doubt your Raspberry Pi run bukkit server is fantastic, but as you are trying to get players. So are we. Trying to steal our playerbase will earn you an instant ban or mute. Likewise, do not come here asking for Tech-Help.
We graciously accept any Donations towards running the server. These Donations will often earn you nice new exclusive bonuses. These are not to be mis-used. They were given to you in good faith, and can be removed just as easily, and without refund.
2) Can I donate for special ranks and support the server? Anyone is able to donate to the server and purchase special ranks/perks. Our ranks and perks are EULA-friendly and all money goes to keeping the server running, not to our pockets
3) Can I be OP? No, we are not going to OP random players who we don't know - we don't even grant that to long-time friends. However, occasionally we do open up staff applications.
4) I was banned, how do I appeal? Make a thread on our appeal page, and a member of staff will review the appeal and make a fair judgement.
5) How do I protect my stuff? We use a protection plugin called PreciousStones, which uses a combination of blocks to make a player protection for whoever placed the block. To protect an area, place an iron block. Chests are protected by default, as are most doors, trapdoors, dispensers and a few other blocks. To grant other players access to your chests, etc... use /cmodify playername, or just use /unlock or /lock to allow everyone or make it completely private.
