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).

    Quick question, my players cannot use anything i.e. Chests, furnaces, boats etc. in their protected regions. Is this a World Guard config problem or does this have to do with your plugin?

    I was having the same problem as all of you, but using the "ProtectionStones 1.9i for 1.7.9 RO.1" version and WorldGuard 5.9.1 seems to work. Good luck.

    Check out my server:

    So, you are 100% sure PS works fine on 1.8 with latest WG, right?

    If Bukkit ever releases a 1.8 API then I will be able to update the code.

    Check if you remove a region directly from WorldGuard, usually the install of WG isn't fully working when the blocks don't removed.

    This may sound silly but I just I can't remove protected zones after the ores have been placed! When I try /ps reclaim I get "An internal error occurred while attempting to perform this command". HELP!

    Come on AxelDios !!!!

    We've had 1.8 for more than 5 months !!!! What are you waiting for? We need the update to 1.8 If you want to wait for WG 6 to be bugless you'll probably have to wait forever. Get the job started PLEASE !
