Gaia Novis Bringing long-term fun to Minecraft


The aim of Gaia Novis is to provide a fun experience to all players. This includes giving players as much freedom as possible. However, even in Gaia Novis some rules apply, so let's have a look at what's allowed and what isn't:

Stricly forbidden:

  • §10: Cheating in any form.
    • No x-ray, hacked clients, flying mods, invisibility, forcefield, the list goes on and on. The server administrators have ways and means to neutralize cheats and detect cheating players. Gaia Novis has a zero-tolerance policy against cheaters. Cheaters will be permanently banned after the first time they cheat and not receive any warning or second chance.
  • §11: Heavily insulting other players.
    • We know a battle can get quite heated sometimes and you might be frustrated if someone kills you. While swearing once in a while won't get you banned, you shouldn't overdo it and overall keep a respectful tone towards other members. This isn't League of Legends.
  • §12: Building inappropriate structures.
    • These include swastikas, genitals and other buildings that might be racist, homophobic or insulting. Also, no 1 block wide dirt pillars. If you need to protect yourself from monsters by building such a tower, please destroy it after you are safe.
  • §13: Destroying public property.
    • All cities and public property like the national railroad are protected. If you happen to encounter public property that isn't protected, please inform the server admins.
  • §14: Redstone is allowed, but not pulsating or otherswise resource intensive redstone circuits. When in doubt, please ask the server admins.
  • §15: If you find bugs, report them in the Discord #bugreport channel.

Explicitly allowed:

  • §1: You have the right to kill other players.
    • Gaia Novis is focused on PvE and PvP is disabled in cities and other settlements. However, out there in the wilderness, PvP is enabled.
  • §2: You are allowed to destroy unprotected builds.
    • Players can buy (of course only with in-game money) chunks of land with the "/land claim" command. Claiming land as your own will protect it from any damage (including mob damage). If someone still manages to steal your belongings or destroy your home, it's your fault for not protecting it properly.
