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).

    WorldGuard 6.0 Beta is released but the API Docs and Java Docs are not updated, so some functions compile with no messages saying the functions have changed, but when you run PS WorldGuard functions like regionRemove() report that the function no longer exists.

    So at this time I'm waiting on WorldGuard to update their API Docs, so I can finish the changes,

    As markdf noted, early adopters take risks, WG 6 is a beta, people tend to forget that beta isn't a release build, it's still in testing, so you might run into problems.

    You shouldn't have been so quick to update worldguard when you have other plugins that depend on it. Suggest you read the earlier comments here.

    Is there a way to prevent people from using certain flags? Also a WG 6.0 version would be amazing, with UUID support as well, since name changes are happening soon probably within a couple weeks.

    Also do you know why whenever someone does ps add a lot the server lags like crazy? See this under playercommand ps it is crazy lagging the server.

    Yes, it's an awesome plugin. Can't wait but you can use PreciousStones. You just have to configure it to do the same as this plugin. But it's annoying and pain it the butt to configure. But if your players are soo used to this plugin, this is the only option you have
