Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

What’s the Server IP?

Can I see a map of the world?

Go here to see a live map of all the main worlds.

Why can’t I build stuff?

Anyone can play games in Frog Park, but to build things in survival you have to be added to a list. Make a direct request to a moderator. Someone on console may also see it and respond. In addition, trusted players (regulars) on the server have the ability to approve friends and family to the whitelist. They can choose to use the /approve <playername> command. There will be certain areas where you still can’t build, which brings me to the next question.

Where is it okay to build?

All survival worlds have plenty of space to build if you walk far enough out. It usually starts opening up around 200 meters from spawn. You can check the live map if you wish to find a place quicker, or you can use the command /wild to place yourself randomly within that world. Typically you’ll be able to start building in a vacant area and place a sign. However, it’s courteous to maintain a similar distance to other builds as others are in the same area. This is usually close together in cities and just outside view distance in the wild.

Can I get a plot in the DEV world?

Yes! The Southeast quadrant of the world is designated for player created plots. (self-serve regions) Here you can make a selection and “/rg claim” your region.

What are the SERVER RULES?

Do NOT break or take anything placed by another player, unless otherwise specified.
Do NOT harass, spam, or swear at others in chat.
Do NOT actively use mods for the purpose of cheating.

I got BANNED/BLOCKED. What do I do now?!

Don’t Panic! Most likely we had to block you temporarily to prevent further damage to the world or server, but almost all appeals succeed. For most immediate results get in contact with PseudoKnight on Discord. If I have reason to believe you won’t continue the damaging behavior, it’s likely you’ll be unblocked. Repeat incidents or other damaging patterns may result in a permanent ban. Keep in mind that unless the ban obviously needs to be undone immediately, it may take some time to look at the damage and otherwise process the request. Do not appeal for your friend, but appealing for your child is okay, especially if they’re under 13.

Are pranks or teasing allowed?

This is mostly fine for players that know each other well, but it can be a misleading to other players. So I encourage you to not go overboard when there’s others around. If you’re unsure, just err on the side of caution and be creative in other ways.

      We’re allocated 3GB RAM on a system with an Intel E3-1270 3.4Ghz and 2x Kingston SSD RAID1.

      [edit] As of September 2023 we’re allocated 6GB of RAM on an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X system.

      If there is an agreement/understanding between the players involved, then yes. You’re not allowed to prank random players. That would be considered griefing. On a similar note, traps are allowed in your home if you do a reasonable effort to warn players that traps are inside.

      This is a part of the outworld experience. You have to rely on your ability to navigate terrain or using coordinates. Also, the outworld gate is always at spawn, so you can use a compass to get back to it.

      However, there’s jungle saplings in parts of Gamma, Omega, and Psi.

    If I want to donate sometime soon, where would I do that? This may be a little personal but I’m positive this server is not having any problems or is going to change radically as this may result in losing money.

        There’s currently a per-world limit of 10 (so you can have 10 on omega, 10 on delta, etc), but this limit is raised to 50 for long time players.

            If you randomly start mining things, it sounds like you have a broken input device. (mouse or touchpad)

      Stop dying.

      But seriously, report the issue to me. I recommend giving specific details so that I can better respond. For example, people failed to notify me of a specific detail of the respawn bug: they were respawning 1 block higher each time. I would have caught onto the source of the issue much faster had I known this.

      It depends on if they’re trying to improve gameplay for everyone (eg. revealing a player that has been hiding all game, which wastes everyone’s time) or attempting to make things unfair. While rule consistency often helps people thrive within a structured environment, society is often more complex. I’ll do my best to make the first situation less necessary so that people don’t have to make difficult judgement calls. In a lot of ways, because it’s a tight community, the server operates on house rules and that necessitates a little self-moderation.

      In general, if someone asks you to stop doing something, you should stop doing it. It’s about respect. But remember, in the case of hiding, this goes both ways. We should strive to accommodate each other to create a more friendly environment for everyone.

      So I’m not sure what prompted this question, but I hope this helps clarify where the line is drawn. If there’s something I still need to look into, let me know. If you have programmatic solution for one of these problems, I’d love to hear the idea. Trello is great for that.
