Hi everyone. This FAQ is going to be brief and to the point so that you can easily find the information you're looking for. If you need more information, please check out the link at the bottom of each section to see the full forum posts where this information is referenced.

Installation

You can use the Eden installer to set up from a fresh install. It can be found here. This installer is currently only for 64 bit systems, but will be available for 32 bit in the future.

If you would like to update from a previous version of an already existing client, please see instructions here.

Our server information is the following:

File: .\\ffxi-bootmod\\pol.exe
Command: --server play.classicffxi.com --hairpin

If you need additional assistance with setting up your client or you are experiencing issues connecting to the server, please join our Discord channel and somebody can assist you in the tech support channels.

Server Rules

  • 2 accounts online at one time per person only with an additional account allowed online as a bazaar or mule. (This will not be locked down by IP, but it will be actively patrolled.)
  • Automation will get you in trouble. (Ex. Scripts to skillup undercapped skills overnight or afk.)
  • Account sharing is strongly discouraged and may be disallowed in the future.
  • Not really a rule but be aware that players may be limited in the future to 3 characters. So create new ones at your own risk. It is undecided how additional characters would be handled if we imposed these limits.
  • Not so much a rule either but if you are aware of any non-era item/NM/recipe/et cetera please report it. And do expect the rewards obtained from it to be removed. I can't find every non-era thing at once but as I find them I will be removing them.
  • Creating characters for the purpose of market manipulation is disallowed.
  • Gardening restricted to 3 characters per player.
  • Hacking/exploiting/cheating of any kind including but not limited to buying items and selling back for more than you paid for. Position hacking is a 1-strike offense, anyone caught position hacking will have their account terminated and their hardware banned.
  • Spamming any chat. (Linkshells and tells are the exception as they will only be subject to harassment reports.)
  • Harassment of any kind including offensive character or linkshell names.
  • Character names that depict cheating.
  • Use of any cheat program/addon or a non-approved addon/program. There will be an allowed list and a non-allowed list. Those not in either are discouraged from use as you may be penalized for using them. Use at your own risk. Those that are similar to a forbidden program are most likely forbidden as well.
  • GM interaction is limited here but if a GM messages you in game and you are active — respond within a reasonable time. Ignoring a GM is likely to get you jailed as we will likely think you are afk botting.

Regarding behavior, we don't have an all inclusive code of conduct manual for you to read so use common sense. If you are doing something that would have gotten you banned or in trouble on retail, it is more than likely against the rules here too. If you are doing inappropriate things that you wouldn't do to your friends--I would think twice about that too. Finally, if a GM asks you to stop a behavior--saying "it isn't in the rules" is not a valid excuse for ignoring the GM.

As a general rule, if you don't see the addon you are wondering about on this list, ask yourself "Does this automate anything or give me any extra information that the game otherwise normally wouldn't offer to me?" If the answer to both of those questions is "no," it is likely OK, but your best bet is to consult a GM or ask on the forums.

Unapproved Addons

  • AuctionHelper / Auction House assistants.
  • Multisend / Servo.
  • Minimap and other map overlays that interact with the world. (Show NPCs, players, etc)
  • Allmaps.

  • LightLuggage.
  • Fishing/exp/healing bots or any other bots that automate player actions.
