To keep tickrate up (game speed), we are adding a new rule regarding autofarms.

 

Autofarms must be triggered manually, with a button, by a human player.

Not by chicken switches, BUD switches, crop timers, rail cart timers, daylight detectors, or what else you can think of. Not even by pressure plates or tripwires, for random people walking by.

 

So in short, fully automatic farms are no longer allowed.

 

Note that non-faction players can always press wooden buttons. This is allowed for farm harvesting. If you don't want that, use a stone button.

No Autofarms

you can have the mechanical bits but it has to be activated by a player either using a button,( pressure plate, trip wire, and possibly lever Maybe only if they are secure behind locked doors on below ground where they cannot be activated by random players....although levers are slightly more tricky)

but No Clocks as stated before

 

so if you already have a pre-built auto farm just edit it so that it doesn't rely on Chickens or daylight sensors or minecart etc...

it has to be activated and deactivated by a player at the moment of use only

so random faction members can still activate it via pressure plates?

Yes unless you lock it up and dont give them access to the chunk

 

Edit by Flox: Nope. No pressure plates at the entrance of your shop etc.

No trip wires. Raidmax said specifically buttons only.
