Hello! Welcome to the community!
Hello! I am the director of Neo Games! While Neo is away creating awesome maps, I am here, on the forums, on the server, and occasionally helping with development. My goal is to give Neo's community a fun place to thrive and enjoy itself!

Introducing the Submissions Manager!
Most players on NeoGames know of the infamous JayJo_. He is one of the masters of Chunk Runner, and an overall great Minecrafter. He has built many maps for the server, and is now of the Builder rank. However, he is about to get a promotion…
Neo used to be in charge of all map submissions before he passed the director baton to me, Falcinspire. Once I learned of my duty as map reviewer, I began to, uh, review maps. However, I ended up becoming much more involved in the development side of the server, and I am sad to say that the amount of community maps I was able to look through was not high. Neo’s server is a community server, so that could not be allowed to happen.
That is where JayJo_ comes in. JayJo_ will review submitted maps and provide appropriate feedback. His job is to chat with and assist the active community of NeoGames regarding submissions - hence the name, “Submissions Manager”.
JayJo_ was offered this position because of his already high participation on both the forums and the server, along with his relationship with Neo (trust). With him deciding which Chunk Runner & Blast Off maps are accepted, we can begin adding as many as possible to the server once again.
I look forward to new progress!

Client Mods Rules
Modifications are at the heart of the Minecraft community. They are great to play around with, and when used in the right way, can make creators more efficient and gameplay more fun!
However, modifications can also be used in more devious ways. They can be used as trolls, or to gain unfair advantages over others…
NeoGames is a fair server, and although mods can be wonderful;
Any client mod that changes gameplay to make it more advantageous for the user is strictly not allowed.
Generally speaking, modifications cannot:
- Change movement ( including camera movement/aim ) in any way, including allowing flying, adjusting quickness, or improving accuracy
- Change the opacity of blocks ( to transparent/translucent )
- Increase attacking reach or speed
- Increase the speed of game actions, such as taking all of the items from a chest at once
- Show the locations of players, entities, or land areas that would otherwise be reasonably¹ hidden
Modifications with the following goals are allowed:
- Improve visual appearance (without changing opacity )
- Increase performance
- Record gameplay
- Show properties of the player outside of their regular GUI
Here are some examples of allowed and banned modifications. Please note that the final say is decided by mods (admins, not player hacks ) on the server
Optifine/Shaders : ✓
Replay Mod : ✓
Armor and Effect Status : ✓
Minimap with entities visible : ✕
Minimap with entities invisible : ✓
Forcefield : ✕
Aimbot : ✕
This list may be updated at any time.
1: Reasonably meaning generated structures or created builds that would obviously be hidden. Examples include cave systems, mineshafts, sea temples, etc. Using a Minimap that can see over a hill or outside of a house is acceptable.
As many of you already know, Neo has passed along ownership of the server to me, Falcinspire. Neo leads a busy life composing YouTube content, creating maps for other YouTubers, making maps on his own, and, of course, being in college. Chief directing a server whilst doing all these other tasks was quite taxing on him, so I was appointed as the main lead. This is not to say that Neo has lost ownership of the server; after all, it is still NeoGames. He will still stream on the server and contribute content when he wants - it just means that upgrades to the server, overseeing our great staff, and other CEO-like tasks will be handled by me.
The thing that I love about this server is that when given the opportunity, the community actively contributes maps for the games that are online. The community’s involvement in the server is awesome! As Neo mentioned in a previous post, there have been about 100 maps sent in for Chunk Runner! It’s easy to see why Neo was having a difficult time keeping up!
Anyways, I have slowly made it through the transition from being non-owner to owner, but I have done it. Map submission reviews should pick up again, and development of cool features should speed up as well. I am looking forward to continuing my role the new director of NeoGames!
RE: New Games Ideas
If enough people like the Shulker Rush game, we may bring it back again for a weekend event. I like the idea of a build battle game, but it will probably not be on the server for a while; creative building games come with the issue of potentially sprouting inappropriate content (and if redstone is involved, lagging the server), which we are trying to avoid. A “mixed arcade” game cycling system is an idea that we may implement in the future.
Thank you for your suggestion!
