Here are the guidelines for being a part of the NewCraft Server.
This is a basic adventure mode server. The goal is to survive and succeed financially. Being well endowed and well skilled allows you to move up in the community and have more privileges.
You will start off with 100 emeralds. This should be enough to find a home to stay in, purchase a store to sell in, and trade with villagers and other players. Emeralds are the currency of the city.
Griefing will not be tolerated. Once anyone reports griefing, the culprit will be banned without hesitation. If you report griefing falsely or without proof, you will be banned. We will teleport to you to investigate.
There will be no weaponry, TNT, or mods of any kind in the city. You will be banned for life if we find you having any of the following. Any trading of these items is also prohibited. This is received as treason to the government.
Houses in the village with beds can be used for free, but keep in mind that these cannot be claimed for yourself, so be sure to get to it first.
Common crimes, such as stealing, will result in a short ban, typically for an hour, depending on the severity. Larger crimes, such as murder and illegal trading will result in larger bans, typically a few days to a week. Treason results in a lifetime ban.
Renting out living spaces and retail spaces requires a license given out by the government. Doing so unlicensed results in the inability to be able to obtain a license, all funds earned from the renting must be returned to the respective players (to the government if the player no longer is on the server), and the player serves a half-hour ban.
Restaurants and food trade requires a license. Doing so unlicensed results in the inability to be able to obtain a license, all funds earned must be returned to the respective players (to the government if the player no longer is on the server), and the player serves a half-hour ban.
Basic trespassing, shoplifting, assault, fraud, money laundering, robbery, and theft is not allowed and the player serves an automatic 10 minute ban.
Games, like spleef, hunger games, and others are only allowed to be played under licensed gamemakers. Doing so unlicensed results in all gamers being banned for a half-hour, inability to obtain a license, and any funds earned must be returned. Games may be held in provided stadiums, and nowhere else. Illegal locations for games results in the removal of a license.
Being a good community player means everything to us. Being rude in the chat box won't do you any good. If you are rude, your application towards anything will likely be rejected, based on your character. Being a kind person is one of the biggest characteristics we check in an applicant. There is no reason to be rude to anyone else, unless there is a large problem. If you have a problem with another player, please report it to an admin.
You must submit an application to be promoted, be an admin, or become part of the government. In no circumstance will you be able to do so without submitting an application. A higher ranked player is not allowed to promote you without an application, and if they do so they will be demoted. The reviewing process for an application is farely short, and involves us meeting together and discussing applicants. We will try to get back to you as soon as possible.
Treason is not a listed crime. A crime, such as attempted murder of a government official, is labeled as treason if the criminal is a threat to the government and the people around them. An executive meeting is held to determine if a crime is treason. Players charged with treason cannot appeal to their ban.
Do not become part of any groups that are not authorized or associated with the government. Any mafia-like groups that partake in trafficking, crime, and fraud will all be banned for life, even any member of the group who "hasn't done anything wrong." Be careful not to get yourself caught up in any wrongdoing. Groups can appeal to these sentences in a court hearing.
Groups that practice illegal trade, such as weapon trading, will be banned for a flat sentence of four weeks. However, groups can appeal to these sentences in a court hearing.
Common crimes can be appealed in an Appeals court hearing. Pleading not guilty to a crime will result in a 5 minute trial that will determine if the player is guilty or not. Pleading guilty will result in the beginning of the ban sentence.
Severe crimes can be appealed in the supreme court of the server. Pleading not guilty will result in a 30 minute trial that will determine if the player is guilty or not. Pleading guilty will result in the beginning of the ban sentence.
Treason, as mentioned before, cannot be appealed and results in an immediate lifetime ban.
Be sure to ask an online admin if you have any further questions.
