    @Cayorion: Go

    Hi Cayorion,

    I have extensively examined the documentation, and it does not resolve my query.

    Factions are unable to claim territory from other factions - players have the rank0 permissions, and all applicable config options are activated.

    Players do not receive any sort of error message when they attempt to claim another faction's land - the plugin simply does not let them do so.

    My config is here: http://pastebin.com/BB7wwgfJ

    I appreciate your work with the plugin.

    Where do I find the config for factions? I've looked all over my console and I still cannot seem to find it. All I want to do is change the time that it takes for power to regenerate & allow creepers to explode in faction territories (Enemy/Neutral)

    I see a lot of comments asking questions that are covered in the documentation.

    Read it all and your question will probably be answered in there.

    Hi, players are unable to claim territory from another faction on my server.

    Any indication as to why this is? No error message is given.


    Henry :)

    Config is here: http://pastebin.com/BB7wwgfJ

    The last update is messed up... People can break blocs in ally/truce territory, all my per-world config files are classified as "old", so no way to configure the factions per-world.

    With the last version I configured it so ally is que equivalent of truce and truce don't exist, now I can't.

    Depends on what you need.

    @Nickold123: Go

    /f claim {#} safezone/warzone


    /f claim 1 safezone to claim 1x1 safezone, a single chunk

    /f claim 3 safezone to claim 3x3 safezone, 9 chunks

    I hope this works

    @mrretrus: Go

    /f perm

    On top is the Build perm for the warzone chunks.

    /f perm {FACTION} {PERM} {ROLE} {TRUE/FALSE}

    in your case:

    /f perm warzone build neu true /f perm warzone build tru true /f perm warzone build ene true /f perm warzone build rec true

    I hope this works

    So for the life of me I cant figure out how to simply allow people to build in a warzone. Ive been searching for hours on how to do this simple thing. Worldguard integration obviously no longer exists (who knows why) But I need people to be able to build in a warzone. How- do- you- do this!

    Before you tell me theres no good reason- FTB. I have an RPG FTB server where you can mine to complete quests- But if some joker claims the area in factions because its wilderness, only they can play the game. If I claim it as safezone or warzone, nobody can build.

    buildinwarzone= true (How?)
