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).

    Hi is there any way to add players to all claimed areas with one command then going to each placed ore region and adding them to it. There probably is a command for it, its just maybe I skipped over it a few times, please respond back asap!

    - Thanks!

    Unless i am crazy the fact that its been approved for 1.7.9 implies that it is compliant for UUID's. I believe it will not pass bukkit devs if it doesnt.

    Not that i know but thats my understanding.

    Do you think a change to WorldGuards API to use UUID's would require an update to ProtectionStones? Or will ProtectionStones continue to function as it does without needed any updates?

    Hi there

    I have a doubt as protectionstone, as use "End Stone" and "End Portal Frame"

    i use the names of END_STONE & END_PORTAL_FRAME in the configuration and still does not work, these blocks are compatible with the plugin? Now of the same way use a stone of protection achieved using the sponge, using SPONGE as id, but I need to use it in another plugin (Bouncysponge) to have it as a springboard

    please explain how I could do to use these stones in the game I have bukkit 1.7.2-R0.2 and protectionstones 1.9i

    Hi! :)

    I was wondering... By default, player's are not allowed to use things such as brewing stands, enchantment tables, ect., in another player's region, even if they're allowed in it. I tried allowing the flag 'use' in the config but it doesn't work for me.

    How can I fix this? :)

    Thanks so much!

    @tugrisu64: Go

    There's an option in the config to stop that.

    This plugin does not work with Playersnapshots. It overwrites the /ps command. I really want both plugins through.
