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).

    So far all I have is a 5.9 WorldGuard update that I'm testing now.

    As far as WG 6, make sure you read all the notes on updating from 5.x which are included in the WG zip file, because with all the changes (esp. with UUID) even when my version for 6.0 is released you still may have problems if you don't update correctly.

    Probably not being saved, vs being wiped.

    Check your logs to see if there are any errors, also how do you have PS configured, the save option?

    I've been using it for the past year or so, but now regions are being wiped, often. It's becoming a big problem. WG 5.9

    No, because I waited for you to say if it would work instead on rushing in to install the latest version of WG. To many players on the server to risk a problem with un-protected player areas.

    I've had a lot of people ask to buy them and I didn't want to link to an economy in PS but planned a separate plugin like you're created, I have no time to do it, so good work!

    Are you using WorldGuard 6?

    I've coded a little add-on for ProtectionStones! :D BFAK:90887657,c72aae632e278722d0a3fbf198f9154965ceffed8a617b2a46b672848478d155

    @fastlockel: Go

    WG 6 has major changes to the WG API and also requires UUID's, so I'm in the process of updating but it's a long process.

    PS won't work with WG 6.
