    Official Approved/Blacklisted Mods List

    This thread will give you a basic rundown as to what mods are considered both "Approved" and "Illegal"
    on Skybounds. If you have any questions about mods not listed (or mods that are listed) feel free to ask and it
    can be reviewed or given a more in-depth answer as to why it is not allowed.

    If you are wanting to download a mod not listed on this list, please ask yourself this question before
    proceeding with downloading it; Does the mod you are going to use give you an unfair advantage
    over other players? If yes, don't use it. If you are unsure, either ask a staff member or go with the safe
    route of not downloading it until you are certain it is safe.

    Note: Please keep in mind that this list is subject to change as the SavageGames staff teams determines
    specific modifications to be considered approved or illegal. It is suggested to keep an active eye on this
    thread if you are actively or planning on potentially using modifications on your Minecraft client.

    Approved Modifications
    (Mods you can safely use on SavageGames)

    LiteLoader/Forge
    These Mods are necessary for installing and running specific mods. They have no effect on your Minecraft gameplay.

    Optifine
    Optifine is a Minecraft optimization mod that allows you to manage your FPS/configurations to make your
    client run smoother and look better.

    5-zig/Armor Status/Effect Status
    These are modifications that allow the player to view their armor/effect status outside of their inventory
    GUI.


    JustPvP
    This is a modification that includes many different mods such as 5-Zig, VoxelMap, BetterSprint
    (ToggleSpring/Sneak), FullBright, and WorldDownload.


    BetterSprint ***
    This mod allows you to toggle your sprint/crouch button indefinitely. Versions of BetterSprint that allow
    you to run backwards, open your inventory/escape menu/chat menu
    while crouching are illegal and will result
    in a ban if you are found using these features.


    Schematica

    The mod allows you to display a hologram, loaded from the schematic file, for easier rebuilding. The only illegal
    part of this modification (printer) has been disabled on the server.

    NotEnoughItems (NEI)

    This mod allows you to view the crafting recipes of vanilla items through the Inventory GUI. The mods
    required in order to run this mod (CodeChickenLib/Core) are also fine to use.


    Keystrokes

    This modification shows you your specific keystrokes when PvPing (which buttons you are clicking and when).

    Minimaps/Waypoints ***
    Minimaps add a small minimap GUI typically in the corner of your Minecraft screen. Waypoints allow you to save
    coordinates/show a beacon at specific coordinates.
    Minimaps that allow you to see/track entities are illegal
    and will result in a ban if caught using these features.

    TabbyChat
    TabbyChat is a mod that allows you to organize and separate your chat into different tabs. i.e. Island chat, Global

    chat, Trade chat, PMs, etc. The mod that is required to use this (MnM Utils) is also allowed.

    Shaders Mods
    Shaders Mods are client modifications which change the visual appearance of the game to make it more
    aesthetically pleasing.

    JitterClicking/ButterflyClicking
    This is not a mod, however, due to the amount of talk going on about it, it will be listed here anyways. We feel as
    though, if you are actually at your computer clicking your mouse, then it should be allowed. In other words,
    "Butterfly Clicking" and "Jitter Clicking" are legal techniques to use when PvPing.

    Light Level Overlay
    This mod shows you the light level of the surrounding blocks, making it easier to space out lighting to prevent mob
    spawning.

    Chunk Indicators
    This mod allows you to view chunk boundaries, making it easier to create efficient redstone contraptions or

    mob grinder/farm.

    ***: Modifications listed with asterisks mean that there are potentially illegal features a part of these mods.
    Please be sure to read through these sections thoroughly if you are considering downloading these mods.

    Blacklisted Modifications
    (Mods that will result in a permanent ban if in use.)

    Hacked Clients
    Hacked Clients are clients that have multiple modifications that provide unfair advantages. These are clients such
    as LiquidBounce, Wurst, Vape, Huzuni, etc. If any client you are looking at says "Cheats", "Hacks", or "Hacked"
    you'll want to avoid them or be at risk of being permanently banned off of any SavageGames servers.

    Hacked Mods/"Hacks"
    "Hacked Mods" are mods that are considered to, overall, provide unfair advantages. The amount of mods that
    should be a part of this list is an incredible amount, so they will not all be listed here. However, some of the most
    common ones used are KillAura, Aimbot, Anti-Knockback, NoFall, Speed, BunnyHopping, and so on. These mods are
    generally known for providing incredible advantages when it comes to PvPing and, if found using any of these kinds
    of mods, will result in a ban.

    LabyMod
    LabyMod is a commonly used mod across the Minecraft PvP community. However, this mod sends certain packets
    to the server that could be considered providing "Unfair Advantages". Because it is hard to determine whether or
    not this mod sends harmful/illegal packets, it is considered illegal to use and is bannable.

    1.7 Animations

    1.7 Animations is illegal for the same reason that LabyMod is; the packets it sends to the server could be seen as
    illegal or providing "Unfair Advantages". Because it is hard to determine whether or not this mod sends
    harmful/illegal packets, it is considered illegal to use and is bannable.


    BetterPvP
    BetterPvP is a mod similar to JustPvP, however, specific features in this mod that aren't in JustPvP are considered
    illegal and make the mod considered illegal. These features include QuickItemUse, EntityInfo, MiniMap Entities,
    and more.


    X-Ray Mods/TexturePacks
    Xray Mods allows players to specify block-types that they want to focus on through walls/blocks (such as ores,
    chests, spawners, etc.). Texture packs used for this purpose are also considered illegal and will result in being banned.

    Autoclickers (Mod/Mouse/Keyboard)
    Any mods or mouse/keyboard buttons/keybinds that allow you to "AutoClick" are not allowed. If you are not at
    your computer, clicking your mouse, it is considered illegal and will result in a ban. If you have a mod set to click
    a specific of number of times per second, it is not allowed and will result in a ban.

    External Damage Indicators
    Skybounds has an internal Damage/Health Indicator already in use on the server. Any use of an external
    damage/health indicator is unnecessary and will be considered illegal.

    Macros/Keybinds
    Macros and Keybinds are mods/scripts that are considered illegal due to being able to keybind specific keys/actions
    that could potentially provide unfair advantages when PvPing and/or island play.

    Inventory Tweaks

    Inventory Tweaks is a mod that allows you to sort your inventory/chests, as well as "restock" your hotbar items
    when you run out of a specific item but have more inside of your inventory. Due to the second part, this mod is
    considered illegal.

    Waila/Wawla
    Although this mod only shows you what block you're looking at, it also includes Health Indicators, making this mod
    considered illegal to use.
