No hacking, exploiting or bug abusing
It ruins the game for everyone else and will result in a swift ban. This also includes undermeshing.
No racism, abuse or any form of hate
It’s not cool, nor is it something we condone.
Choose unique names, don’t impersonate others
No “123” or generic names allowed for characters and tribes. They should be easily identifiable.
Keep chat clean, no spam or inappropriate content
Remember it’s only a game, don’t take frustrations out on others.
No advertising or trolling
We do not tolerate any form of advertisement or trolling.
Do not clutter the map
Destroy old or unused structures to help keep the maps performing well.
Do not block artifact caves, obelisks or community areas
This also includes nests areas among others.
Limit your building locations to 2 per map + 1 Ocean platform
This includes outposts, any small bases and taming pens. Keep in mind that you only have one ORP area per tribe.
Messages sent from our #cross-chat Discord channel are also sent in-game and vice versa. To do so, link your Discord account to the servers by following those simple steps:
1 – Join our Discord server
2 – Type /setdiscord yourusername#1234 in chat in-game
3 – Our bot sends you a PM on Discord
4 – In chat in-game, type the command and code you received
5 – Log out and back in the servers
6 – You have now linked your Discord account to the servers!
Optional: Type /raidwarning 15 in chat in-game to receive a PM on Discord when your unprotected structures are attacked while you are offline.
Each tribe can set one area per map where structures and dinos are protected 15 minutes after the last online member logs out. Each area has a radius of 25 foundations. It also prevents combat logging if you or your tribe members have been involved in PVP shortly before disconnecting and will only take effect after 1 hour.
ORPs expire after 20 days of inactivity.

/setorp id name – Moves an ORP to your location
