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:

ps{x-coordinate}x{y-coordinate}y{z-coordinate}z

i.e.

ps279x67y40z

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).

    I disagree with both of you. If Axel doesnt update its his decision to make, and if he doesn't want to release the source that's also up to him. Making demands of something that has been provided for free is not the way to convince someone to do what you want.

    Axel is under no obligation to continue development or give away his source. I'd like to see it continue and even better updated for sponge, but if not, something else is sure to come along eventually.

    I agree with johandre : either you think you want to go on with the plugin then update to new version of WG, or please just say you suspend dev / support on it for many reasons and please give source access so we can fix our bugs even if you claim that we keep credits for all what you have done for protectionstones. Both position are fine and completely understandable but we have servers running to maintain. Dev links or external links are valid if you thing the bukkit community is ending.

    Sounds like the regions aren't being saved, check your PS Region.SAVETIMER setting (listed on the Configuration Page.

    Not sure what version of WorldGuard you are using, you listed 1.9, is it one off the 5.x ones or the newer 6.0 version?

    Because it's probably your copy of WG isn't working at all with PS, so no Region Saves.

    I know bukkit is dead any everything, but I thought I would let you know that players are constantly complaining about their protectionstone's region disappearing. If the sponge is still there, they can replace it to fix the region, but if it was hidden, the sponge is gone since the region is no longer there. I'm using ProtectionStones 1.9i, WorldGuard 1.9, and Spigot-1649. If this isn't too much work to update, could you possibly PM me an update build, or I can PM you my email? I would greatly appreciate it!

    Yes I realize I have taken spigot for a while and that they went on publishing patches as a work around to full delivery every day.

    Look at http://www.spigotmc.org/ you will see they resume their work. Got my update today. (with a procedure sending only new code). I do no think bukkit / spigot plugins are really going to die : minecraft multiplayer will go on maybe on a bukkit fork hold on by the communauty. Some dev will give up, other shall federate in a new community.

    You may just provide the source code if you want stop and /or a dev build link even if not approved. It seams also that many plugins have been approved since the issue : it might be just a small API change in a parameter, may not need to recompile the whole.

    And minecraft server from MOJANG is far from being able to support multiplayers like the open dev community around bungee / spigot / bukkit / plugins

    You do realize that Bukkit is pretty much dead, and even if I put an update out here there might not be anyone to approve it.

    Question : do you have any plan or work i progress to update the plugin to the api change of WG 6 ? Not having any response or update or plan for updates may means that it's time to consider alternatives since it will not evolve in the future?

    When I tried it was not : any plan for this since MySQL is something I really need, even considering to abandon this very popular plugin on my server. But with the number of protections which have been created , huge worldguard YML files is very dangerous.
