SAVAGE GAMES MODIFICATIONS GUIDE Before using any modifications please be aware that all use of modifications on our server is at your own risk, including the ones we list as examples in this guide. We cannot review every version of every modification, and as such we cannot provide any guarantees of modifications being within our server rules. Allowed Modifications: Provided below is a list of the categories of modifications we permit on the server, along with an explanation of what each of these categories does and does not include and permit. If a modification does not fit into one of these categories, it should be assumed that it is disallowed by default. Client Performance Improvement Modifications Modifications which simply seek to improve the performance of the Minecraft client without making changes to the game itself, such as those which improve the FPS of the Minecraft client. Aesthetic Modifications Modifications which change only the look and feel of the game without modifying gameplay, such as standard shader modifications or even resource packs. These must not however change the properties of blocks (e.g. make non-transparent blocks transparent) or change the players perspective (e.g. allowing them to see around or over objects they normally wouldn't be able to). Cosmetic HUD (Head-Up Display) Modifications Modifications which alter the look and feel of the in-game head-up display (HUD), without adding extra information which would normally be unavailable to the player. For example, HUDs adding armor and status effects, which are available to the player in their inventory screen, are permitted, while mini-maps, other player health / armor indicators, player distance / range, etc. are not. Brightness & Gamma Adjustment Modifications Modifications which alter the brightness and gamma settings of the Minecraft client, allowing you to see in darker areas which would normally be too dark to see in. Some of these clients include, but may not be limited to; Forge Optifine Shaders Better Sprint / Toggle Sneak Armor / Potion Status HUB Minimaps (without visuals of Entities or Way points) World Downloader (Must not be used for malicious intent via the Warzone, not allowed on Kingdoms.) Schematica ... and more. Disallowed Modifications: There are many third party modification clients on the market these days that aim to provide a significant advantage to the user, over others. These clients are typically used with the intentions to purposefully gain an advantage in game increasing the overall effectiveness, visuals, accuracy, speed, performance and more of tools, weapons, and general player experiences. We aim to provide fair and equal game play on our servers, and thus any modifications you use that bring a disadvantage to others, will be a punishable offense. Some of these clients include, but not all, are; Hacked Clients Macros / Auto Clicking Modifications X-ray clients or Texture packs ... and more. In addition to hacking related modifications, we strictly disallow anything that automates a players game play. This includes Minecraft modifications, along with external software or hardware. This includes things such as, macros, keybinds, auto-sprint, aim assist, auto clickers, and custom mouse / keyboard modifications. Modifications that alter the way in which your Minecraft client interacts, and communicates with our server is disallowed. Some clients used can appear as though they are not directly harmful, but may still adjust the way in which you appear, or function in game. Please ensure that any modifications which are used are strictly client side only, with them not changing or altering the behavior of the game. You can review a list of most existing 'hacks' that are never to be used within our platforms here: https://www.savage.games/hacks/ Use at your OWN RISK Modifications: Some categories of modification clients are made to further inhance your overall game play, or provide features that benifit you, without jepordizing ones legitimacy or intentions of playing fair. Usually these client are produced in order to combine a variety of harmless gaming enhancements within one, easy mod. Inside these modifications can also include unfair advantages, or hacks, hidden within their list of included content. These added components are typically toggleable, which allows the user to "remove" them temporarily, while still being able to use the client safely. Allthough it is not easy to detect the use of these modifications, if found, could result in a punishment. Some of these clients include, but not all, are; Particles Mod LabyMOD BetterPvP Cosmic Client ... and more.
