What if I have a small building holding chickens and they lay eggs?I have to be online before the items despawn so is that allowed?

Yes that is allowed.

I thought so because I have to be online to collect.

So just to clarify with the spawner situation, if we FIND an already existing spawer, say a skele spawner in a cave, are we still allowed to claim that as our own and build around it or is that "illegal"?

Finding existing spawners and protecting them is completely allowed. You just can't build auto killers via crushers. Other then that building it into a grinder is allowed.

So For the automated farms. I have a cactus farm that uses no redstone. I have fences that break the cactus and i have water that pushes the cactus towards hoppers. Is that illegal?

No, that is illegal. It allows for the harvest of items without the player doing any interaction. Also, it lags the area if it is of a bigger size.

Can we use redstone lamps or togglable lights to harvest crops, and are simple iron farms allowed?
Also, are semi-automatic smooth/cobble stone farms using pistons to move the stone to allow more stone to form allowed?

You have to hit the switch on the light. Iron farms are a no go, won't work anyway with farm limiter, and no on the cobble/stone farms.

Considering how it works, you can be AFK while it harvest blocks to you, making it an AFK auto farm: Illegal  :zombie:
ima be honest this one is kinda dumb tbh it causes 0 lag and no redstone
Oh yes Give the serial killer enthusiast a mod to make monsters, what could possibly go wrong?

Lag and red stone doesn't have to do with this decision. You can harvest the cactus and be AFK at the same time, leave the keyboard and come back with resources you didn't even try to get it yourself. It is auto that you don't do it yourself, the game and the machine does it for you. Perfectly good reason why this is illegal and not dumb

could you redstone pistons and make it semi auto

Semi autos aren't allowed either, but ask the Staff Team for more information/confirmation

FinalTest

Since there have been some better/less laggy designs for item sorters recently, is there any way that the hopper limit can be increased (maybe 200? with a good design 200 hoppers don't cause that much more lag than 100)? Or at least increased for certain/approved designs (e.g. designs that only run when items need to be sorted)?

Bosslaya

is a system where you flick a lever and it activates a piston allowed?you cant afk with it.

Updated the Piston Section!

Welcome to all the new players and thanks for reading the rules.

I'm curious as to why pistons are illegal in semi auto farms, I'm certain this didn't used to be the case. Players already have individual piston limits, reducing the potential size of farms and lag created by pistons. perhaps a better solution to lag would be to limit the number of pistons firing within a number of ticks? you could quite easily reduce the lag of medium sized piston farms just by firing each level at a different time. If its the production of items we're worried about, fortune and MCMMO make manual farms more efficient anyway. Was just wondering if we could get this reviewed?

Hi Lou!
I've brought it up with the Manager+ team and we've decided that many factors come into play with it, it would be difficult to enforce and keep an eye on how players change & manage it. It will be staying the same, thanks for your input. If you have anymore suggestions, feel free to create a support ticket about 'em in the Discord!  ;D
