Cannoning Specific Rules
These rules apply specifically to Cannoning on the Skycade server.
Global rules can be found [Here]​

  • No Griefing
Don't destroy or intentionally ruin someone else's build or steal from them. This includes builds that aren’t currently claimed by someone. Cobble monsters fall under this rule too.

  • No Inappropriate Builds, Plots, or Lag Machines
Includes things like building genitalia or swear words on a plot. Also includes abusing world edit to make lag machines (plots of water, lava, nether portals, etc). Any redstone machine that does not seem to have a real purpose will be considered a lag machine. Obviously, cannons are allowed.

  • No Illegal Items
Illegal items are classified as being items that crash your game, create lag, clear your plot, link to inappropriate websites, or give non-removable potion effects.

  • No TP Trapping
This means that you cannot teleport players to you or your plot and trap them (lava, nether portals, etc).

  • No Automatic Cannons
Cannons must be fired by the player each shot. All other cannons are allowed. For reference, all entities are removed above 255 and the current TNT limit is 10000 TNT/Sand per tick. Any cannons shooting more than that amount will not work, and any cannon firing above height limit will not work. The maximum number of walls allowed on any cannon box is 20. Any additional walls will be removed by an admin if reported.

Cannon claims may not be directly against the claims of the faction being raided, nor can the faction being raided claim directly against the faction performing the raid. This is to help prevent any potential F Fly abuse, as well as prevent cannon barrels from being blocked up.

Only one cannon is allowed per raid party firing at a time. Raid parties include anyone communicating towards the common goal of raiding the base. Allies may band together to raid a base, but two neutral factions may not.

Counter-Cannons that are built into the walls of bases are allowed. Only one counter cannon may be shot at a time if several are built into the walls of a base.

  • No Inappropriate Faction Names or Titles
Anything you’re not allowed to say in chat cannot be in a faction name or player title.

Base Defenses
While obviously bases cannot be “raided” on the cannoning server, here are our Factions guidelines regarding base defenses. This will help you determine how to design your base if you choose to do so here.​

  • No Unraidable Bases
Any base that is considered unraidable is not allowed. Anyone caught using blocks or strategies that makes their base impossible to raid will have their base edited so that players can cannon the walls.

  • No Illegal Walls
In terms of the amount of walls you’re allowed, then you can have as many as you can fit within the claim limit. You are limited in the amount of, and style of, regen walls. Each base is allowed, on each side (presuming the base is a square/rectangle shape) 1 layer of regen walls. Not super regens, not regen filters, just normal regen walls - the classic. All other forms of regens (regen chests, regen roofs, etc) are not allowed. If you are concerned whether your regen walls are allowed or not, ask any Admin to confirm.

All lava shown in the photo can be fully source blocked with an exception. If using Minechat Regens (top right) only the one-wide can be source blocked. The two-wide gaps must only be the top block as source, and the rest of the column as flowing.

Lava-water walls are not allowed. These are walls that alternate between lava, cobblestone, and water in a repeating fashion. The rule of thumb is not to use lava in your wall defences other than in your regen layers. Any walls using Signs are also not allowed.

You're also not allowed to claim for example 20 chunks for base walls in a row, then leave a gap, then claim 10 more chunks for walls. That bypasses the claim cap and is not allowed. Your base claims must all be connected, with no intentional gaps.

Bases can have as much obsidian and sand as they want, as well as filters.

  • No Watering or Blocking Spawners or Chests
Spawners covered in water or entirely encased in blocks will have their covering removed by an admin if reported. All spawners must be open to air at all times.

All chests in your base must be visible and accessible. This means no regen chests, and no covering in lava. Covering chests with water is allowed. A rule of thumb is to allow any chest to be right clicked without interference.
