What mods are allowed?

What mods are allowed?

Minecraft modifications or simply "mods" are a large part of the Minecraft experience for many players. They can be simple performance improvements and visual tweaks to gameplay-altering ones. With the vast variety and functionality of mods out there, it can be confusing to know which ones are and aren't allowed. This guide will outline what mods and clients can be used while playing on SouthHollow.

Important Note: Before using any modifications please be aware that all use of modifications on our server is at your own risk, including the ones we list as examples in this guide. This is because we can't review every version of every modification, and as such, we cannot provide any guarantees of modifications being within our server rules.

Please ensure any modifications you do install are obtained from legitimate sources such as the creator's website, GitHub, etc. Unofficial downloads from other sources may not behave as expected. They could contain bugs, unadvertised features (which could result in punishments on our server), or even malware

What if a mod or client isn't listed?

Assume you can't use it, even if you believe it complies with our rules.

Want a mod or client added?

We have limited experience with these clients and mods. As such, we may sanction features that we have limited knowledge about. You can contact a staff member and showcase how a certain client feature should/n't be allowed so we can create a more specific usage list.

  • Disclaimer
    The SouthHollow network does not endorse any of the mods named above, which are provided solely as examples of commonly used modifications on our server. We (SouthHollow) are not the developers of any of the named modifications, unless explicitly noted, and we do not have control over those modifications.
  • We are not responsible for the behavior or actions of any modification, which may be updated or changed (even automatically) at any time by their individual developers.

Why can't I see the cosmetics?

Why can't I see the cosmetics?

SouthHollow automatically distributes a custom designed resource pack to players to enhance their in-game experience.
Sometimes, the pack doesn't load correctly because the client has it disabled.


Enabling Resource Packs

Find SouthHollowMC on your server list, select it, and click on "Edit Server". The following screen should appear.


Click on the "Server Resource Packs" until it says "Enabled". Finally, click done and then join the server.
