Our Values

The core values of our server:

  • Stable — We are a stable community. Our core group has been gaming together for over 8 years, and our Minecraft server has been running for over 3 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!

Plugins

This server uses the following plugins:

  • LogBlock — We believe that the victim of large-scale griefing should not be discouraged from playing on the server. For this reason, we run LogBlock 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.
  • StatCraft — StatCraft is developed by a fellow RLY user to add statistic functionality to the server. Use /help StatCraft in-game for a complete list of commands.
  • Minecart Exit Fix — This plugin is developed by a fellow RLY user to prevent the annoying minecart exit glitch which caused many unfair deaths. This plugin has no commands.

News & Announcements

Nov 14/13 “Previous Map Downloads” by spling (Discuss)
Hey everyone, I am pleased to provide the following downloads of our previous maps.

Our 1st map: Creative: http://rly.cc/mc/oldmaps/creative.7z (62.6 MB)
Our 2nd map: The Isles: http://rly.cc/mc/oldmaps/TheIsles.7z (134 MB)
Our 4th map: Cactus Bay: http://rly.cc/mc/oldmaps/CactusBay.7z (3,058 MB)

We are currently on our 6th map (1.7.2) and our 5th map (NorthGrass) may yet be incorporated with multiverse or a concurrent server. Otherwise, we will make it available for download as well.
As for map #3... No one cares about map #3.
Nov 2/13 “1.7 Map Online” by spling (Discuss)
In case you didn't already know; we've had a 1.7 map online for a while now. The new website layout will be live soon, and recruiting will begin again when Bukkit is updated. See you in game!
Sep 15/13 “New map in 1.7” by spling (Discuss)
Hello! I just wanted to clarify that we will be starting a new map with 1.7. As always, the server will not be updated until bukkit is updated. In the meantime, we will be preparing a new, much better planned nether transit system. This should facilitate much easier linking and traveling to different destinations on the map. Many players have noted the decline in activity recently, and I would like to reassure everyone that this is a common occurrence before a big update (such as 1.7) is released. I have no doubt that our server will be lively and fresh again soon, and I plan on putting forward a new website design and refreshing our recruitment efforts. See you in game! ;)
Jul 29/13 “Recruiting Open!” by spling (Discuss)
Hey all, we have once again re-opened the server to new players. If you'd like to support us, post something about the server on our reddit thread. Cheers!
Jun 27/13 “Whitelist Applications closed without referral” by spling (Discuss)
Hey everyone. As a result of a recent post on reddit, the server has seen a surge of new players this month. Indeed, the new stats page currently tells us that there have been 144 active players in the last 31 days! With all the new faces, it is safe to say that our server activity is currently healthy. As such, whitelist applications will now be closed without a referral from an existing member of the server. If you are already whitelisted, you may invite your friends to apply and we will consider their application. Whitelist applications from people who do not know anyone already on the server will be denied. (Although exceptions may be made for outstandingly impressive applications.)

Thank you for your interest in our server, and watch for open recruiting again in the future!

(TOP) The Whitelist

To play on MC.RLY.CC you must apply to be whitelisted. To apply, e-mail the form on the right to mcrlyccwlapps@gmail.com. Please put your username in the subject line!

Before applying, make sure you have read and understand our rules. Especially Rule #3.

Please bear in mind that applications with no punctuation, missing answers, spelling errors, or other indications that you have trouble forming a sentence will likely be denied. We're looking for mature, drama-free people to join our community, and we use your application to gauge if you'll be a good fit or not. Good luck!


(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 6th 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.

  • How do I get rid of this Snow block and what is LogBlock?

    To disable the Tool block, use the command "/lb t off". LogBlock is our primary defence against griefing and unscrupulous behavior. Our server uses LogBlock to record block changes and any player can view these changes by wielding the LogBlock Tool. The LogBlock tool is a Snow block that can be used to inspect any block to see what has changed in that spot. To enable the tool, use the command "/lb t". 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 the staff (listed to the right) and they will be able to place one for you. You can also request a marker on the official reddit topic. Please know which marker icon you'd like to use before requesting.
