    Greeting and salutations Cosmonauts.

    I have noticed throughout Cosmic's life, people have been banned for a "blacklisted mod". Now, what that is, is a mod that gives you an unfair advantage over other players, like hacked client. So I have decided to make this thread discussing the allowed, and not allowed mods.

    Allowed mods:

    Forge:
    Forge is a base mod. Meaning that its only function is to allow other mods to work. This is allowed as it gives you 0 advantages over other players.

    Optifine:
    Optifine is a mod that is mostly used for boosting FPS (Frames per second) so it is perfectly fine to use! It is also used for other things like connected textures, or a swaggy cape on your back! Oh and it makes the chat look beautiful <3

    CosmicPvP Modpack:
    This is an official modpack for Minecraft Version 1.8.
    Custom MapWriter
    MapWriter with Factions Integrated into it.
    Chunk Borders
    Allows you to see the border's of chunks
    Account Manager
    Have lots of accounts? This mod lets you easily log into those accounts without restarting Minecraft.
    Optifine
    Gives you more Graphical Options and someone gives you better fps ingame.
    Toggle Sneak
    Allows you to toggle sneak and sprinting.
    Tabby Chat
    Gives you more chat options and overall improvements.
    World Downloader
    Lets you download the parts of the world you explore
    Lighting Fix
    Removes the spread of lighting. Useful when pouring lots of lava.
    5zig
    PvP mod that allows you to see armor status, etc.
    Cannoning Utilities
    Helps you see where your tnt is flying in from your cannon.
    Cosmic Envoy
    Tells you when the last envoy has happened.
    Schematica
    Lets you display a ghost block of your schematic file.
    A full guide to this mod located here.

    Better Sprint/Toggle Sneak:

    Better Sprint is a mod that makes you able to press a button (and toggle) to sprint, and is a very useful addition for PvP and just Minecraft in general. However it is not banned because it is already sort of in default Minecraft. (You can just press the CRTL button). This is also the same for toggle sneak. Which when you press a button, allows you to start sneaking without holding down the button.

    Armor/Potion/Direction Status Hud:
    These include, but are not limited to mod packs such as:
    - 5zig
    - bspkrs
    - InGameInfoXML

    Minimaps:

    Minimaps that do not show players, mobs, or caves are welcome. Examples include Journey Map's Fair-Play edition and Zan's Minimap Fair-play edition, Map Writer.

    Shaders:

    All shaders does is make the world look more fabulous, making it an allowed mod on Cosmic. Lel

    Misc. Mods:
    Mods that will edit things like Font or Music are allowed as they don't give advantages over players.

    World Download:
    World download, as the name suggests, downloads the current world you are in, which is useful for raiding! It's ok because this doesn't give you an advantage above other players

    Schematica:
    This mod allows you to display a hologram, loaded from a schematic file, for easier rebuilding. You can also save your creations to schematic files and share them.

    Tasty Cannoning Utilities:
    This mod allows tools for cannoners to better tweak their cannons. This is the ONLY cannon mod to date that we have found complies with rules of the server.

    Factions MapWriter:

    A custom MapWriter designed to assist in showing factions claims from the faction map.

    Lighting Edit:

    A simple mod used to remove the spread of lighting to increase your fps in most situations.

    Account Manager:

    If you have multitudes of accounts this mod lets you easily log into other accounts.

    Cosmic Last Envoy Time:

    Displays when the last envoy happened. It shows the last envoy after it happened while you were on the server.

    Tabby Chat:
    Tabby chat is a mod that cleans up the chat system in Minecraft. With features like being able to write lines and it'll send them as two messages! This gives you no sort of advantage over other players!

    Damage Indicators:
    Damage Indicators is a mod that allows you to see your opponent's health and how much damage you do. This feature is already on Cosmic through plugins (you can see players' health below their IGN tag) so it's perfectly fine! (Damage Indicators are NOT permitted on Cosmic HCF)

    Changing gamma:
    Not a mod, but you can go into your Minecraft files and adjust your gamma to be able to see everything without torches or glowstone etc. This is also able to be done in 5zig. So this 100% safe (However there is not a formal decision on the mod GammaBright. And "Fullbright" is a hacked client addon so of course that's not allowed)

    Unacceptable mods we are frequently asked about:


    Hacked clients:
    Hacked clients such as Resilience, Huzuni and many others are strictly forbidden on CosmicPvP as they alter your game entirely to an extent. Like every blacklisted mod, you will be permanently banned using any of these.

    More Particles Mod:

    Tends to double-click which in some cases could lead to a ban.

    Labymod:

    Has a means to negatively impact other players.

    BetterPvP:

    BetterPvP gives you tools such as fast eat, which are not allowed on Cosmic, as it gives an advantage.

    Macros/Auto-clicking:

    Macros allow you to press a key and it will execute a command, such as clicking P and you will do /eat (Or feed). This is banned because it is not fair to other players as they will still have to eat. And Auto-clickers are obvious on what they do, by clicking itself and you not having to do anything, and be lazy. And for all those banned for this reason, saying "I put a paperweight/something on my spacebar" does not work in an appeal.
    As a note, using "ESC + space" to constantly jump in the air is not permitted and will be taken as macros.

    X-ray texture packs:

    X-ray texture packs, or texture packs that lets you find caves are not allowed, as it is the same as using X-ray on a hacked client. Thus, it is banned.

    Misc. Mods:

    Name tag mods, tracers, or any mod that could be considered as giving you an advantage are self explanatory and fall into this category. T

    Schematica (Printer):
    Not allowed.

    Unacceptable mods is not a complete list. This is a list that simply covers some of the most frequently asked about mods. ANY mod that gives you an advantage over other players would be considered black listed and should not be used.

    Particles Mod:
    Not allowed.

    This mod has a bug that will cause issues with players on multiple servers.

    Optic Client / OCMC
    This mod has been black listed and is not permitted for use on Cosmic.

    Bad Lion / Zonix Client
    This mod has been black listed and is not permitted for use on Cosmic.

    Cheatbreaker
    Cheatbreaker is a customized mod created for another network that is meant to prevent cheating however due to the fact that screensharing a player using this mod could result in their being banned on another server/network (per the informational website on cheatbreaker) we have blacklisted this mod as screensharing is done based on flags and concerns of the suspected player breaking rules. Being on this or any mod will not prevent a player from being requested to screen share if there is reason to suspect them of breaking the rules.

    As well, per their informational website and to sum it up easily for you:
    1. Cheatbreaker is not effective on unsupported servers
    2. Cosmic is not and won't be a supported server as we have our own custom client. Even if it was, we have no insight into its security and have no reason to trust it. We don't hesitate to question our own custom client.
      • Our first priority is and will always be your safety and security. As such it's imperative that our developers know how each and every program and patch interact on the server, with the player base, etc.
      • We will not and can not blindly trust a "server side" program with our player base and their information. That would be hugely irresponsible. We must be aware of how all programs interact, what they do specifically, what they watch, what they log, where your information is going and how it is maintained.
    3. All clients are SS'ed if behaving suspiciously.
    4. If a player behaves suspiciously on Cosmic and is SS'ed, Process Hacker will be run as a part of the investigation.
    5. This will result in that player being banned on CB

    J3 Ultimate
    J3 Ultimate is a black listed mod that allows the user advantage specifically with pvp, attacks, and basic physics.

    Damage Indicators
    (Damage Indicators are NOT permitted on Cosmic HCF, only on Cosmic PvP)




    These lists are subject to change at any time

    Thanks to @tbstewa , @Jester865 , @Emma, ypperin and @Its_its for helping me out with this.
