Residence Logo

Residence Logo


Residence is different from most protection plugins in that it aims for the users to be able to protect their own homes without having to bother the admin to do it. Residence has support for a variety of different protection types including preventing movement through areas, all of which can be configured by the land owner, and limited by the admin.


  • Dynmap Residence - Dynmap plugin that shows residences on the webmap.
  • ResExtras - Control snow, ice, animals, mobs, and more within a residence.
  • Residence Fly - Controls flying within a residence. Leaving will cause a player to fall.
  • Residence Signs - Easy buying/selling/renting with signs.
  • ResTown - Controls which users can build outside of a residence.
  • ResProtect - Protects animals via flags
  • ResCreative - Grants creative on entering a residence.
  • ResPerm - Adds additional permissions to a player on residence change.
  • SimpleClansResidence - Integrates Residence and SimpleClans
  • Flags - Apparently adds flags or something

    @MGbeenieboy: Go

    Residence plus residence signs and that should be all you need. I personally like it better than SRM anyway.

    Here's the link:

    Good luck.

    @charmechulo: Go

    strange but you need to do like this (groupmanager)

        default: true
        - residence.groups.newbie
        inheritance: []
          prefix: '&f[Newbie] &a'
          build: true
          suffix: ' '
        default: false
        - -residence.groups.newbie
        - residence.groups.amateur
        - Newbie
          prefix: '&f[Amateur] &a'
          build: true
          suffix: ' '

    and for residence group config just do like this

      DefaultEnterMessage: You have entered %area%
      DefaultLeaveMessage: You have left %area%
      CostEquation: (YSize * XSize * ZSize) * 0.02
      Weight: 0
      DefaultEnterMessage: You have entered %area%
      DefaultLeaveMessage: You have left %area%
      CostEquation: (YSize * XSize * ZSize) * 0.02
      Weight: 0
      DefaultEnterMessage: You have entered %area%
      DefaultLeaveMessage: You have left %area%
      CostEquation: (YSize * XSize * ZSize) * 0.02
      Weight: 0

    enjoy :)

    P.S. Sorry for posting so crapy before :P

    Hi, so I'm trying to set up per group Res limits. Example: Group Player can only make a Residence of a max of 32x32 but group Member can make a Residence of a max of 64x64. I've heard this possible but I can't find anywhere that explains how to do so.
