Our Values

The core values of our server:

  • Stable — We are a stable community. Our core group has been gaming together for over 10 years, and our Minecraft server has been running for over 4 years with 99% uptime.
  • Fair & Legit — We do not spawn blocks, items, or play in creative mode; and we don't artificially inject items into our world with economy plugins. Everything on the server is built with the work and dedication of the players.
  • Pure SMP — We run a pure Hard-Mode Survival server. If you starve, you die; if a creeper explodes, blocks break. We don't change the gameplay significantly with plugins.
  • Mature — We are a drama-free community, and we do not tolerate immature or dramatic players.

Server Rules

MC.RLY.CC is moderated on a case-by-case basis. We have very generalized rules, because we expect everyone on this server to use common sense, and be respectful enough to not have to specifically define what is and is not allowed.

  1. No GriefingNo altering someone else's build. Do not PvP someone who doesn't want it. Use common sense.
  2. Play FairNo x-ray, flying, item duping, or unfair client mods.
  3. No DramaPersonal attacks are not tolerated. Respect other players, and remember that we are all peers!


This server uses the following plugins:

  • CoreProtect — We believe that the victim of large-scale griefing should not be discouraged from playing on the server. For this reason, we run CoreProtect in the event that an area needs to be rolled back.
  • Deadbolt — Deadbolt allows us to have security on chests and doors, allowing us to avoid drama related to "stealing." If your chests aren't locked- that's your own risk to take.
  • Dynmap — A high resolution interactive world map generator. If you prefer to be hidden from appearing on Dynmap, use the /dynmap hide command in game.
  • CraftIRC — We have an IRC channel that integrates with our in-game chat. It's great for talking to people who aren't in-game, and allows us to have essentially constant moderator presence on the server.
  • SignColours — SignColours allows players to use colors in signs. You can view a list of available color codes.
  • MultiMOTD — MultiMOTD is a simple MOTD plugin that allows us to share our server news with our players when they join the server.
  • NameColors — NameColors is developed by a fellow RLY user to assign an arbitrary color to each user's name when they chat. The first time you log on to the server, you're given a random color. You can change your color at any time with /namecolor <color>.

(TOP) Frequently Asked Questions

  • When does the map reset?

    Map resets typically happen when the majority of the active players want to switch to a new map. Usually if there are large generator changes that make expanding the map impossible, we start a new map. Our server has been up since alpha 1.2.0 (Oct 2010) and we are now on our 10th map. Map resets will always happen with plenty of notice.

  • Is PVP Allowed?

    As Rule #1 says: "Do not PvP someone who doesn't want it." MC.RLY.CC is a "hands-off" server; in the interest of Vanilla gameplay, we do not disable PVP [or anything else.] This means that you are free to PVP anywhere on the map. However, on our server we expect everyone to treat each other well. You may engage someone in PVP, but if they say "no" or "stop", you should stop. PVP that is explicitly declined is frowned upon, as well as spawn camping, and killing AFK players.

  • Is Pranking Allowed?

    In a similar vein, pranking is allowed on the server. Pranking has proven to be an activity that is highly susceptible to starting drama. The usual rules apply and drama caused by these activities can result in bans. Before you prank someone, know the person you are pranking, and their limits. Be prepared to clean up any prank in the event that the pranked player cannot, or does not want to do it themselves. These are common courtesy requirements, and we do not at all discourage our players from doing what they want to do in game. We simply require that everyone do so respectfully and maturely.

  • What is CoreProtect?

    CoreProtect is our primary defence against griefing and unscrupulous behavior. Our server uses CoreProtect to record block changes and any player can view these changes by using the inspection command. The inspection command allows players to inspect any block to see what has changed in that spot. To enable, use the command "/co i". If you suspect you have been griefed or if you come across a situation where you feel a rollback is necessary, contact any staff member for assistance.

  • Can I get a Dynmap Marker?

    Yes, ask any staff member (listed to the right) and they will be able to place one for you. Our staff are always available on IRC, accessible through in-game chat. Please know which marker icon you'd like to use before requesting.

  • What do these name colors and symbols mean?

    The colors of names in chat are completely arbitrary. The first time you log on to the server, you're given a random color. You can change your color at any time with /namecolor <color>. The prefixed symbols cannot be changed except by staff, and are used to identify players in the following ways:

    • @ = Server Staff
    • + = Trusted Player [1 Yr+]
    • * = New Player [< 2 weeks].

    Note: The + rank is only used to recognize those who have been a part of our server for a long time; the symbol gives no special privileges or treatment to the user.
