Minecraft Modifications are a huge part of the Minecraft experience for many players. From performance improvements to altering how the game is played, they play an important part in people’s Minecraft experiences
However, mods can massively change the game, sometimes in ways that go against our code of conduct and as such aren’t allowed on the MCC Island Server. This guide is here to outline what types of mods we allow on the island and which ones we’d rather you leave at home.
Please note that all mods are used at your own risk. We can’t investigate every single version of every mod to ensure it fits within our guidelines.
If you do install a mod, make sure to download it from the official source (such as Curse Forge, Modrinth, GitHub or the creator's website) as unofficial downloads could add differently than expected or contain malicious code (eg. viruses, spyware)
We can’t and won’t list every single modification and if it's allowed, but we’ve detailed the types of mods we’re happy to see on our sandy shores, what they do, and what aspects are suitable. If a mod doesn’t fit into one of these categories, assume that it's not allowed on the island.
🛠️ Client Performance Improvement Mods
Mods that help to improve Minecraft’s game performance without making changes to it, such as those that improve FPS, reduce stuttering, improve memory usage etc.
Some Island features may interact weirdly with custom clients, as they often rewrite some aspects of Vanilla code.
🌺 Aesthetic Mods
Please be aware that Island heavily relies on custom textures, with the built-in resource pack, playing with another resource pack may cause weird interactions that are not intended.
These mods must not change block properties (e.g. make non-transparent blocks transparent to see through walls) or alter the player's POV (e.g. allowing them to see around or over objects they normally wouldn't be able to, such as freecam or perspective mods).
🎥 Gameplay Recorder Mods
🕶️ Cosmetic HUD (Head-Up Display) Mods
These are mods that change the look and feel of the in-game display (HUD), without adding extra information which would normally be unavailable to the player.
While you are allowed to use player health indicators, it is advised not to use them, as Island has its own more intricate health indicators.
🔭 Vanilla F3 Tools
Vanilla Minecraft has a few built-in debugging tools, when combining F3 and another key this will give you a unique debugging mode. For example F3+B shows entity hitboxes and eye lines.
So long as none of these tools are abused to provide unintended advantages, such as seeing through walls, then they are allowed to be used.
The general rule of thumb for any mod is that if it will provide a significant advantage in one or more of our games, then it won’t be allowed on the server, such as (but not limited to):
We also don’t allow mods or features that automate a player’s action, whether they’re Minecraft modifications, external software or hardware. This includes things such as (but not limited to) auto/burst clicking buttons or macros, auto-movement mods, and aim assists.
Finally, mods that alter the way in which your Minecraft client interacts with our server are also strictly not allowed, even if they otherwise fall into an allowed category.
Please ensure that any modifications used are strictly client-side only and don’t change or alter the game's behaviour.
If a mod doesn’t fit neatly into any of the allowed mod categories, it should be assumed to be not allowed. If you have any questions about the mod you want to use, please contact a Moderator for clarification.
