About

Welcome to BuildAtNight, a brilliantly crafted and well-thought out Minecraft server.

    Getting started on BuildAtNight can prove seemingly difficult, the difficulty is set to Hard Mode. Unlike many servers, it is made to fully entice players who have everything, and challenge players who have nothing!

    In order to rank up on this server you need to build. To get the first rank, Builder, you need to build a regular house. As the rank builds progress, it becomes harder to rank up. For a tier 1 rank, you need to build a decent build. But tier 2 and tier 3 building ranks require much more effort.

  There are occasional building competitions, each one completely differently themed! There is no limit to what you can build! Everybody on the server has their own style of building, so take advantage of yours and impress everybody.

The rules must be read and accepted by all players before they can begin playing. A command is specified in them that must be entered to leave the ‘rules box’

Rules

The overarching theme of our server rules is “Don’t be stupid” If you think you might be breaking a rule or can get out of trouble by exploiting a loophole, ask staff for advice if your not sure.

1. No Griefing – Griefing is destroying things other players have built/produced. Griefing is an instant ban offense. We take it seriously and roll back any damage.

2. No Cheating – Hack mods, Xraying or exploiting the game for unfair advantage (duping, etc) is strictly prohibited and an instant ban offense.

3. No abusing people – Threats, harassment, Doxxing, stalking, racism, bigotry or any other behavior that is Illegal is an instant ban offense.

 4. Be sensible with chat – We try to be generally accepting of most chat topics but things that are hotly contentious would be better off discussed on any of the millions of other communications platforms out there. (Politics, Religion, etc.) We employ a chat filter that attempts to restrict or improve certain chat terms. Attempting to bypass that filter is not suggested, it could result in a ban. Do not advertise other servers.5. Limit mobs – Mobs are limited to 50 of each type in any loaded area. (50 Sheep, 50 Cows, 50 Chickens etc etc) Exceeding this limit may result in some of them being killed. The ones killed may be random but naming a mob can help protect it. This limit is imposed to help maintain a lag free server for all players!
