    Hi, I did /rules and I noticed that it said this under one of the rules, so what are the illegal modifications? As I cannot seem to find a list that shows them.

    For example, hacked clients are illegal modifications. Anything considered an illegal modification is a third-party application or download you can have that enhances a game on your end/client of the game. If we're talking about hacked clients, a further example would be being able to recieve /fly for free or a forcefield so you don't die. It's anything that gives you an advantage. However, it's considered "illegal" because the server rules said not to use them for fair game purposes and some people disobey and go ahead and use them anyway.

    Hope this brief explanation helps!

    We really can't know what mods are considered illegal, such as macros (for auto chat messages), schematica, schematica printer, etc.

    Pretty much anything that gives you a major advantage to the game is not allowed unless listed otherwise and is harmless such as Optifine. I have clarified in the past that this [Optifine] is so far the only acceptable mod. Certain mods aren't allowed even if you use 'em harmlessly such as macros for chat messages because there has been previous cases where people decided to use the other advantages of macros, therefore ruining the game for everyone else or "cheating" their way to the top.

    Would a macro used to configure button to certain tasks be allowed, similar to many other servers? What I mean by this is you are able to configure the command '/sellall' for example to be processed whenever you click a numpad button, which is not harmful in anyway and simply saves time, very useful!

    I'm sure you'd be able to, it's just risky allowing anyone because in the past 'automine' for macros was allowed and it was too much of an advantage for players and took the fairness away from the game of Skyblock. I'm sure you can still do that as long as you're being honest and truthful that that's all you're using of macros. After so many incidents it became a trust issue and was forbidden altogether and not recommended to get it, but I'm sure if you mention it to Frosty or atherguy if you see them, they can clarify everything up. :)

    Anytime! Glad I can help. I've been around for some time so I know some things, just haven't been as active as I was during late 2016. I'm try to though haha.

    Yes, it is allowed, just how you described is perfectly fine!

    Macros, labymod, minimaps and things like that are allowed. Mainly no hacked clients.

    Could a thread be created for the allowed/disallowed mods (make sure to add suggestions for allowed/disallowed mods)? In case a new member doesn't find this thread.

    I'm not sure as it is allowing a program to modify it. Assuming alts are fine, I guess so. @atherguy would have to tell you. Schematic- obviously prohibited.

    I was told schematica was allowed providing printer was not in use.
