Griefing Protection

ProtectionStones allows a player to place a special block, and this protects their area from griefing.

This small plugin was inspired by PreciousStones but only has the property protection blocks. This allows players to place one of three types of ore blocks to protect their property.

The player doesn't require any special permissions, they just need to get one of the three following ore blocks which you can give or sell in game using other plugins:

Coal Ore gives 11x11x11 protection area.

Lapis Ore gives 21x21x21 protection area.

Diamond Ore gives 41x41x41 protection area.

See the Configuration Page if you would like to change the block types, the dimensions or even set the Y-Axis to be from sky to bedrock, set group limiting, etc.

When the player places the block it creates a WorldGuard Region that gives the player ownership of that area and in turn grief protection. If the player breaks the ProtectionStone then they get the stone back and the region is removed from WorldGuard's Region List.

To install simply copy the ProtectionStones.jar file to your plugins folder, no configuration necessary. The following Ore Blocks are supported as the defaults: Coal Ore, Lapis Ore, Diamond Ore.

ProtectionStones Regions

ProtectionStones Creates WorldGuard Regions with the following naming convention:




The x, y, and z coordinates are the location of the placed ProtectionStone which is in the center of the WorldGuard Region it creates. If the Region.SKYBEDROCK Setting is set to "true" (see the Configuration Page) then Y-Axis of the ProtectionStone isn't necessarily the vertical center of the region.

Incompatible with PreciousStones

Both plugins act on the same kind of ore blocks and have the same command name of "/ps".

Requires WorldGuard

WorldGuard is used to create and remove regions when the blocks are placed, otherwise ProtectionStones won't do anything (set not to load if WorldGuard isn't found).

    I highly recommend to use instead. It supports Minecraft 1.8, WG 6.0, it functionality is better, it has the same simple usage and it performance is a hundred of times better (it consumes less than the 10% of the CPU than this plugin uses).

    Remove flag "use" from config.

    How can i make it so that normal world spawned ores won't work as protection stones. I have this problem when i use silk touch pick to take example coal ore, i can use it as protection stone. How can i do it so that you can get protection stones only from the market i made? ==== Thanks for help :) ====

    I'm having issues since the newest update. Whenever i attempt to place a protection stone, it simply tells me i can't. there's no error, no lag, no nothing. it just pops up with a chat prompt that says "You Can't Place Protectionstones" All the config, permissions- everything is there, and it worked fine up until the 1.8.7 Update. So i figured I'd see if anyone knew off hand what could cause the issue. And I am OP-ed, and neither I nor my players can place protections stones.

    Hi! I am using this awesome plugin since a loong time :) I want to ask you if it is possible to do a little upgrade..

    What about a tax system? A daily upkeep tax. If the player runs out of money the zone will be automatically unprotected.

    The tax will depend on how many lands you have: one chunk means (for example) 1000$, two chunks means 2000$ ..

    This plugin, combined with pvp money, will be awesome!

    @AxelDios: Go

    Why don't you just use the latest Spigot-Api ? As far as I know the Spigot and Bukkit API were identical.;quick~spigot
