No attacking group members. Once you leave a group, you must leave the area completely before you can hunt or attack them.
No revenge killing. If an admin can find or be shown proper proof it will result in the loss of your dinosaur.
No spamming or sending unsolicited nest invites.
No logging out while you are still bleeding.
Your 3 and 4 calls only have meaning when contesting/forfeiting bodies.
Using your 2 call does not guarantee your safety. Safety is only assured once all parties have 2 called.
You may not 2 call to fake being friendly.
No obsessive spam calling.
No putting down a nest to be aggressive or drain your food.
Stay away from the Lava we will not replace your dinosaur if you die by it.
If you are slain due to rule-breaking you will not be able to request another dinosaur for 24 hours.
You can not have more than the allowed pack limit of adults in your group, whether or not you are travelling or hunting together.
You may not grow during a fight.
Herbivores may not pack or hang out with carnivores.
No player may drop the location of other players in global. This includes your own location if you are with other players.
THERE IS NO BODY DOWN RULE! We have a body tether rule. During a fight, if a body drops you may continue the fight until one party leaves the area of the body. DO NOT move away from where your bodies are. You may defend your body if anyone comes in the range of the body you have or tries to eat from bodies that are yours.
If you kill member(s) of a pack that is hunting you, 4 calling does not mean that they need to stop.
Scavenger dinosaurs (Austroraptor, Velociraptor, and Herrerasaurus) may follow and stay with Tier 4 or above dinosaurs but MAY NOT engage in fights or help the pack. This includes not being able to scout ahead for the tier 4+ they are following. Only ONE species of scavenger may follow the same tier 4+
No interfering with active fights unless you are a group member and people in active fights can not attack dinosaurs who are not part of the initial battle. You may join a new group, pack or herd at any time, even during a fight, as long as you would not cause that group to be over-packing. (Pack mates that die during the fight would still be counted towards pack limits until the fight is over.)
If no body is down, and the fight has ended, should one party be sitting, or has left the area, both parties become 'fair game'. Even should one, or both parties be injured/bleeding
After combat ends, you stay in the area at your own risk. This includes when healing off bleed or broken legs
Carnivores are NOT allowed to mixpack with other carnivores of different species. THIS INCLUDES warning players, not in your pack/herd, of danger or giving out player locations in global
You may not enter water or lava or use cliffs to avoid player confrontation or cause your body to be inedible to others. This includes bleeding out while swimming or purposefully drowning. Suchomimus and Baryonyx may sit in, swim in, and use water to escape other dinosaurs, but they may not enter it while bleeding or go in and out of water while already in combat. If bitten in water, Suchomimus/Baryonyx do not have to leave the water. Water is still not a safe zone for Suchomimus or Baryonyx if you are NOT a Suchomimus or Baryonyx you MUST be fully visible if you decide to sit in water and you MUST leave the water if a player comes into the area.
Herbivore Aggression Rules
Herbivores may not attack unless provoked. Examples of provocation include entering ambush stance while facing herbivores, following herbivores, 3 calling herbivores, mock biting at herbivores, and/or coming into their immediate vicinity.
Herbivores must give warning before initiating a fight. They may 3 call to warn the carnivore to leave. They must allow them time to 4 call and leave the area. If the carnivore fails to do so, the herbivore may attack.
Herbivores may contest other herbivores for land. They may only contest for the major landmarks for herbivores. (Ex. Paradise, baybrook, lighthouse, etc.) The opposing herd must give a warning in global chat before they attack. You must 3 call multiple times and give the other herd a chance to 4 call and leave the area if they wish to forfeit the land. You cannot chase those that wish to forfeit the land. If you contest for an area you MUST stay in that area. You MAY NOT contest the same herd multiple times
Herbivores do not have to allow another herbivore in their herd. They may 3 call to warn the other herbivore to leave. They must allow them time to 4 call and leave the area or they may be attacked
Herbivores [are not] allowed to corpse guard unless the body is near their nest or if the herd has been attacked twice by the same carnivore or pack
If a carnivore or pack enters two engagements with the same herbivore or herd, the herd may fight them to the death. The herbivores do not have to stop the fight due to the carnivores having a body or leaving the area.
(ENGAGEMENTS ARE COMPLETELY SEPARATE FIGHTS, BITING 2+ PEOPLE ISN'T SEPARATE ENGAGEMENTS)
Body Contesting Rules
If you a carnivore, YOU MUST STAY WITH THE BODIES OF WHAT YOU KILL even in self-defense. Once you kill a player, you cannot leave the body until you have finished eating, it has despawned, you are contested, [OR] if the body is inedible due to being in water or is otherwise unreachable
If you find an unclaimed body and you eat from it you claim that body and must stay with it. (Ex. killed by herbivores, slain by admins, or completely left abandoned)
You MUST 3 call when entering an area to contest a body, if the other party 4 calls and is moving away you must allow them time to leave. If you 4 call you must continue actively leaving the area around the body or they may attack you. This includes if you are bleeding or have a broken leg. You CANNOT ask someone to 3 call you off a body
You may re-contest your body that you forfeited but you MUST 3 call and give the other party time to 4 call and leave themselves
If a body turns to gore you are no longer tethered to that body UNLESS it is an apex gore. If it is an apex gore you are still required to follow tether/contesting rules. No gore, besides apex gore, is contestable. Both Pue bodies AND gore are NOT contestable.
Scavenger dinosaurs CANNOT contest a body away from tier 4+ dinosaurs
If your packmate(s) are in a fight, and you cannot reach them before they die, you must treat their dead body as a contestable body to re-engage the fight. (3 and 4 call rules still apply) You CANNOT run back to the same on-going fight after you died and rejoin the fight.
The entire pack must stay with the body if you kill a player (even if you didn't kill them but your pack did you must stay with the corpse)
You are not allowed to share bodies. If there is a body you wish to eat from you [must] contest it (does not include scavengers)
Non-Survival dinosaurs are only allowed to nest 1 hatchling in their entire lifetime and it must be male unless told otherwise (Herrerasaurus, Austroraptors, and Baryonyx may nest freely)
There are no nesting limits for survival dinosaurs, however when they become an adult, they count towards your herd/pack limit NO NESTING AT PARTY FIELDS
NO STREAM SNIPING
DO NOT ADVERTISE OTHER SERVERS/DISCORDS, THIS INCLUDES UNWANTED INVITES IN DMS TO MEMBERS IN THE DISCORD
