Game servers

Gflash hosts a variety of game servers. You can find all the information you need on the public ones, below.
Before joining the server, please make sure you’ve read & understood the rules! By playing on it we assume you’ve done that already. You should also come back and take a look again every now and then, since those might change.
If you invite someone to one of the servers, please redirect them here, so they can be informed about the rules too.


General

Community

  • Follow any instructions from moderators and admins.
  • Be good to each other, hostility and harassment will not be tolerated.
  • It doesn’t matter which community you’re coming from, anyone is welcome, if they’re nice.
  • Teamwork and trading are encouraged, you can meet at spawn to trade things easily (but you don’t have to).
  • If you have a problem (with someone or in general), or a suggestion, make a ticket. If it’s rather urgent, notify a mod/admin in-game, or ping them on discord.
  • Don’t try to force people into playing with mods, if they prefer it vanilla style.
  • You may RP if you feel like it, but nobody is forced to join you.
  • You don’t have to use the different in-game text channels if you don’t want to.
  • Keep it SFW (mild swearing is ok).

Gameplay

  • No griefing / stealing.
    • If you feel like an action you’re going to take might break someone else’s stuff, let a moderator know, so they can take an extra backup, first.
    • If you accidentally broke something you weren’t supposed to, don’t worry, you’re not in trouble, just let a moderator know ASAP.
    • If everyone involved agrees to be aggressive, in specified ways, to each other, using game mechanics, then go ahead and do that.
    • Yes, that means that if you make a minefield on your property and have a sign that says “keep out” or something, anyone that steps on your traps, consents to be blown up. 😐
  • Don’t build too close to spawn. You’re allowed to build things for the community and shops around spawn, but not personal bases or anything heavy for people’s computers.
  • Don’t build too close to someone else, unless agreed upon. People generally expand their bases quite a lot!
    • Also, if you do agree to build close to each other, consider your neighbors and their hardware.
  • If uncertain about what’s “too close”, as a rule of thumb, if something’s within render distance (10 chunks), you’re certainly too close to it.

Server

  • Do not lag the server on purpose.
    • If you use a lot of hoppers in your contraptions, please put a full block above any hoppers that don’t have anything above them and don’t need to suck items. In addition to that, you might want to watch this video.
    • If something you made makes a lot of light updates (flickers), light up the area with torches or something.
    • When exploring new land, if the server is visibly lagging behind you, give it a small break.
    • Also, when done exploring in modded, don’t stay at the edge of the explored world, as that can create some lag after a while.
    • In modded, only chunkload what you need chunkloaded. The ChickenChunks chunkloaders are recommended, they don’t need power / fuel and they’re highly configurable.
  • No exploits / cheats. Using those on purpose is a bannable offense. This mainly refers to tools / mods. Breaking bedrock, TNT duping and similar things are allowed (certain other exploits, like item duping glitches, might be patched on this server, this is on purpose, if unsure, you can try your design in creative first).
  • If the server is lagging / went offline without any notice, let an admin know.
  • If a recipe is broken in any way, let Alex811 know.

Please note

  • We operate somewhere between a zero-tolerance policy and a 3-strike policy, depending on what rules you break and how badly. Look, just be a good kid and we can all have fun.
  • By playing on the server, you accept the fact that we log pretty much everything you do on it and that some players might be streaming, so the chat and other things might be on their stream too.
  • There’s a common glitch, where sometimes teleporting makes it seem like you lost all of your XP. Don’t worry, that is not the case, it should reappear the moment you gain / lose some XP.

Players on the server have badges, enclosed in brackets, before their name in the chat and the player list (in “[P] Jeff”, P would be the badge). Here’s what those mean:

Player badges

  • P: This is a normal player. Their job is to have fun (while following the rules).
  • C: This is a player that is considered cool. You might eventually gain that badge if you’re cool. Asking for the badge makes you less cool, BTW.
  • V: This is a VIP. They have donated to help out, so they’re super cool.
  • B: This is a player that is connected through Bedrock/Pocket/Windows 10 edition. They might be playing on their phone, so have mercy.

Staff badges

  • M: This is a moderator, AKA mod, in this context. They have some extra powers to take care of things. They keep the peace in the server.
  • A: This is an administrator, AKA admin. They have even more powers than the moderators. They deal with server-related issues and prevent the end of the world.
  • S: This is a system administrator, AKA sysadmin. They have ultimate power, with access to Gflash’s console and files. Only bug them about in-game related issues if they have an extra admin / mod badge.
  • The server has currency (currently only in modded), which you receive when you gain xp or trade with others.
  • The server will take away some of it, in return for its services, when you get resurected (unless you’re broke), or when you use certain commands.
  • You can use it to trade for goods, if a player accepts payment in currency.

Yup, we have rules for staff too.

  • Do not abuse your powers (to cheat things into survival, to make someone’s life miserable without a reason, or anything else).
  • Be careful with commands. If you’re unsure about something, you can ask Alex811.
  • As a mod, if you spot any broken permissions / settings, notify an admin.
  • Do not spam the backup command and when you need to take a manual backup, note down the time (it’ll help restore it if needed).
  • The server only keeps a certain number of backups, if we need to keep a backup for more than 12h, notify an admin / mod that is also a sysadmin and explain the situation (the server keeps daily and weekly backups too, but there’s a good reason for this rule, trust me).
  • When something goes horribly wrong, try your best to keep your cool.

Minecraft Servers

    • If you need to see what’s not implemented on Geyser yet and whatnot, go here.
    • We’re now using Floodgate 2.0, which means that your bedrock skin should eventually be uploaded, so it appears to others too, instead of showing up as the default skin!
    • If you can’t connect, let our admins know (and give them the message you got)!
  • Linking your Java & Bedrock accounts
    • This is for those that have both editions of the game and want to be able to play using the same character on the server, from either account.
    • The result should be that both of your accounts will link to what would normally be your Java account character, on the server.
    • Note: don’t try to connect from both at the same time, if linked.
