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).

    If WorldGuard's API is completed I will create an update for 6.0, but that will probably be the last version of PS, since it looks like we will never see further development of Bukkit.

    After that I will be moving over to mods and also other MC API's. I'm watching the progress on several platforms that are being developed now, some claim they will offer Bukkit API Support, and also their own API's.

    You need to read what has been posted here previously, there will be no update for WG6. You should not have upgraded to WG6 without determining if there was going to be a problem.

    Yes, we really need this too. Best self-protection ever. Our players are upset, they can't access their regions.

    WorldGuard is open source why not just look at the code for the necessary changes. Really need an update for this

    @RaphaelSimon: Go

    Not sure why you are having problems with the silk touch being turned off, but you can also use other blocks and also set limits to numbers of PS for all players or by "ranks" etc.

    Please read the Configuration Page.
