SMP RULES

• 1) HACKS AND EXPLOITS

1.1) – Hacking is not allowed on SMP. This includes any mod that gives you an unfair advantage to another player. If you have to ask, “can I use this mod” then the answer is probably no.
Permitted mods will be listed in the “Allowed Mods” thread.

Reports can be made by PM’ing a staff member on Discord, in-game or on the forums.

2.1) – Griefing, or modifying another player's structure without permission is illegal, this includes: placing/destroying blocks, placing of water/lava, the tilling of soil, destroying blocks with TNT/dragged creepers, and the growing of trees on another player's property.

2.2) – You may use other player's farms, as long as you replant the crops you took.

2.3) – Killing another player's animals is allowed, however if killing another player's animals - you
must leave at least two animals, enough to breed them again. If you ever accidentally kill too many mobs, contact a staff member.

2.5) – Do not log off in other people's settlements unless you have permission to do so.

2.6) – Do not over-raid, over-raiding can be described as raiding for more than 30 minutes at a time or raiding the same settlement more than twice a day. The raid limit of two times a day includes all members of that settlement. If you are in a settlement, coordinate with your team.

property. If you accidentally grief into a structure like this, contact a staff member.

4.2) – Combat logging is not allowed, is a player is found combat logging, contact a staff member immediately. This includes running at a player with the intent to harm them.

Can we make xp grinders that have the ability to be turned off? I assume the rule is for lag. Ex. Have a source of light be inserted into a room to stop spawning.

The rule exists so that you actually play the game, rather than afk farming xp. You may have a dark room, where mobs do not take automatic damage and all mob types have the ability to hit you back. Mobs will spawn up to a cap regardless, if you light up your room they'll spawn elsewhere.

So is that a yes?

I think you're misunderstanding. You may have a dark room, where mobs spawn and you fight them. You may not in any way have damage dealt to the mobs automatically, or without them being able to attack you back. 'Grinder' typically means a system that automatically kills mobs for you, and usually collects their loot. We don't care if your floor is hoppers to collect loot, but all of the damage done to the monsters must come from players. Don't use lava or suffocation or redstone contraptions to do damage to them.
