    Greeting MCBuffalo!

    I have noticed throughout the time MCBuffalo has been up, people have been banned for a using 'Not allowed mods'. Now, what that is, is a mod that gives you an unfair advantage over other players, like hacked client. So we have created a list of allowed and disallowed mods with details to why they are/are not allowed on our servers.

    Allowed mods:

    Optifine is a mod that is mostly used for boosting FPS (Frames per second) so it is perfectly fine to use! It is also used for other things like connected textures, or a swaggy cape on your back! Oh and it makes the chat look beautiful <3

    Better Sprint:
    Better Spring is a mod that makes you able to press a button (and toggle) to sprint, and is a very useful addition for PvP and just Minecraft in general. However it is not banned because it is already sort of in default Minecraft. (You can just press the CRTL button)

    Armor/Potion Status Hud:
    These include, but are not limited to mod packs such as:
    - 5zig
    - bspkrs
    - InGameInfoXML
    - LiteLoader

    Damage Indicators:
    Damage Indicators displays the health of another mob/player which is a useful addition for PvP as it shows the hearts of a player mid battle. It is allowed as it has been a feature on our server where it displays a players hearts under their tag.

    Minimaps that do not show players, mobs, or caves are welcome. Examples include Journey Map's Fair-Play edition and Zan's Minimap Fair-play edition. The features that are not allowed on our servers are:
    Player radar, Underground maps and armor showing. Features that don't modify the map to give a great advantage (Zoom, Circle instead of square on certain maps, etc) are allowed.

    All shaders does is make the world look more fabulous, nothing that shouldn't be allowed on MCBuffalo;P

    World Downloader:
    World downloaders, They allow the downloading of chunks to check whats in the base but they do not show what is in chests.

    Misc. Mods:
    Mods that will edit things like Font or Music are allowed as they don't give advantages over players.

    Unacceptable mods we are frequently asked about:

    Hacked / cracked clients:
    Hacked clients such as Resilience, Huzuni and many others are strictly forbidden on MCBuffalo as they alter your game entirely to an extent. Like every blacklisted mod, you will be permanently banned using any of these.

    BetterPvP gives you things such as fast eat, which are not allowed on MCBuffalo, as it gives an advantage.

    Macros allow you to press a key, also known as a "hotkey", and it will execute a command, such as clicking P and you will do /eat (Or feed). This is banned because it is not fair to other players as they will still have to eat. And Auto-clickers are obvious on what they do, by clicking itself and you not having to do anything, and be lazy. And for all those banned for this reason, saying "I put a paperweight/something on my spacebar" does not work in an appeal.

    X-ray texture packs:
    X-ray texture packs, or texture packs that lets you find caves are not allowed, as it is the same as using X-ray on a hacked client. Thus, it is banned.

    Misc. Mods:
    Name tag mods, self explanatory, you can see name tags clearly from a distance. This is not allowed and any that give you an advantage over players that would be unfair.

    For those "Cheeky" players that think just because it was not mentioned on here, it is allowed. That is not the case, any modification that gives you an advantage over players will result in a permanent global ban.

    The Unacceptable mods section is not a complete list. This is a list that simply covers some of the most frequently asked about mods.ANY mod that gives you an advantage over other players would be considered black listed and should not be used. If you decide to claim that 'it was not listed' in your ban appeal after been caught using a mod giving an advantage, it will be denied.
