LUMINEX SERVER RULES


Upon joining the server, it is highly recommended to thoroughly read through the rules to avoid any punishment.
The server rules have been written to maintain a fun, positive, and friendly community and to ensure that players have the best experience possible on Luminex!
If you have any questions about the rules or anything you would like to see added to the rules, please contact a staff member or submit a forum thread.

We encourage players to communicate their thoughts to staff to make the best set of rules for you.

Failure to have read or known the rules is not an excuse to break them. Usage of this excuse in any punishment appeal will result in a denial.

All warnings and punishments given by our staff team are decided by the discretion of the staff team. If punished unfairly, file a post on the forums and it will be reviewed.

WITHOUT PROOF, WE WILL NOT PROCESS ANY BANS! PLEASE BE READY TO PROVIDE PROOF IN THE FORM OF EITHER LOGS, SCREENSHOTS, OR BOTH.

Being AFK for a player’s personal gain is not allowed on Luminex, specifically:

The construction/use of an AFK pool
The construction/use of an AFK farm (any farm that does not require a player to interact to be able to harvest/kill) This is to preserve our economy and prevent players from making money without doing any work. We do allow semi-automatic farms as those still requires some manual labour. Examples of semi-auto farms can be a farm where you have to press a button to harvest and then manually collect and replant.

The use of a chicken farm is allowed, as long as it follows the rule of only 2 chickens per 1 hopper.

Rule 6 -
Player Respect

Chat and actions on Luminex must remain positive and respectful to both player’s and staff.
Being respectful to others is mostly done by using common sense, characterized by or showing politeness or deference.
Treat other players with a sense of dignity. If players are conducting a trade, allow them to do so privately. If staff members are conducting their duties, allow them to do so without impeding.
Pushing players who are trying to build in their town is a form of harassment. Standing in the way while they are trying to build something in their town is harassment as well.
Keep builds appropriate
Remain family-friendly, we have a wide variety of ages on the server
No threats towards the server will be tolerated
Respectful chat and actions towards others

Do not remain on someone else’s private land if they have asked you to leave the premises.
As a mayor, do not scam residents for items, services, or money. The property of a resident is not necessarily the property of the mayor.
A mayor may post a set of their own town rules, as long as they do not conflict with the server rules.
Residents who have been inactive for 7 days or more may have their locked items such as chests and furnaces removed by a Mod.
If a compromise can be reached between the town mayor and the second player building near the town can be made, the build may stay. But if the town mayor does not agree to a compromise the player had 48 hours to leave the area. Failure to do so will result in punishment.
