    This thread is to all faction members- a simple guide broken into catagories. Please comment ideas to add, and If they are good I will add them and tag you.

    Bases
    -Make a base either high in the sky, or low in bedrock.
    -Never use entities, such as torches. Full list here. http://minecraft-ids.grahamedgecombe.com/entities
    -Surround your base in obsidian, lava, water, and other hard to break blocks.
    -If possible, make a regenerating wall, tutorials are online.
    -Protect your chests from other fac members, you can never be too safe.
    -Refrain from puttinng items in open such as chests and ore blocks. Hackers can use X-ray to see these.
    -Use trapped chests, as in many X-rays these do not show up.
    -Never have an open nether portal, people can get in either way. Cover it up when done, or hide it far away.
    -Claim surrounding chunks, so TNT cannons are less effective.
    - NEVER make a base close to spawn or on the world border. People always look at these locations for bases

    Sky Bases-Best location: Above a large and deep ocean
    Pros:
    -Hard to reach, especially if nearby area is claimed.
    -Easy farming, with sunlight.
    -Easy to make lava and water walls.
    Cons:
    -Minimal floor protection
    -Sometimes /sethome doesn't work.
    -Can be easily seen if not high enough or attackers render distance is very high.
    -Unless a roof is put on, easily raidable
    -Cant build too far down, or it can be seen.

    Bedrock Bases-Best location: Under a large and deep ocean
    Pros:
    -Great floor protection
    -Close to areas for diamond mining
    -Hard to reach

    Cons:
    -Easy to find with x-ray
    -People mining may find it
    -Mobs in the chunks can count as entities, leading to a raid.

    Nether Bases-Best location: Bottom of a lava lake
    Pros:
    -Hard to raid, since the users will need a nether portal
    -Surrounding in lava doesn't look suspicious
    -Very hard to find

    Cons:
    -More geared up people stay in nether
    -Cannot grow crops, such as sugar cane.
    -Zombie pigman, if agrny will hoard your chunk.
    -When clearing area, lava spreads fast, and you can loose your inventory

    Do's and Do Not's

    Do:
    -Protect your base well.
    -Only accept trusted players.
    -Hide your loot .
    -Kick any suspicoius players.
    -Only PVP with non valuble items in your inventory.
    -Keep all prized items in enderchests. Located at spawn at for ranks /echest.
    -Daily use all /kits, and make seperate chests for these.

    Do Not:
    -Allow random people to tpa.
    -Allow anyone to sethome in your fac besides you.
    -Set a /f home. Allies can go to yours.
    -Dig straight down or straight up (Duh!).



    PvP Tips
    -Use strength and speed potions
    -ALWAYS carry an enderpearl, just in case
    -Make sure you are in 1.8.9 or below, so blocking actually works. Tutorials on how is here. http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Downgrade-Minecraft-To-Any-Version-EASY-TUT/
    -Carry food (best is steak or GApples.)
    -Never PvP with high levels of XP.
    -Carry a backup sword, in case if it breaks.
    -When ever you pick up very good loot, enderpearl far away and /spawn. Empty the loot and continue.
    -Use a M O U S E! Never PvP with a trackpad.


    PERMS
    /f perm home all no (allows only your faction to tpa to your /fhome) (@SinisterBuchanan and @Bilbo)
    I WILL BE ADDING MORE TIPS SOON!

    Thanks for your tips, most were really helpful! But honestly, unless you're planning on fighting people with p4, one extra sword is just an extra space in the inventory
    Also, would you mind if i had some of my own here, if i remember some?

    This actually is not a problem because you can do "/f perm home all no" and they can't tp. Speaking of which, if you haven't already, you should make sure there's a short guide on perms in here.

    It should disable it then.
