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

    i really liked this plugin, but now is outdated and v3 is more or less buggy-land. I hope some one will take over and fix bugs... i managed to make myself full frame protection for (with minimum knowledge of java -.- ), just cant get around armorstands (so i just blocked them entirely for now), but still its way better than v3 right now. And this what pisses me off, is more or less perfect plugin, just have 3 bugs now: itemframe, move bug and armorstands. Why they cant just fix that and release it until someone finishes with v3...

    In [spigot-1.8-R0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar:git-Spigot-"a91cec0"]:

    Residences created sometimes stop working and people can use it as if it don't have protection. There is a issue of this version, in previous versions it didn't happen.

    When a player try put a Armor Stand in a residence without permissions, it can put and the armor stand isn't consumes from his inventory.

    Players without permissions can take items in armor stands -but can't quit the armor stand.

    Crap, the old wiki page for Residences 2.x had its "subscription expired". Is there any chance of getting the documentation back?

    Server Information: ""

    Antarctic Special Operations, home of the buggiest (modded) server ever! With the most incompetent admin (me) also! Currently unplayable on survival due to construction accidents involving but not limited to a rebar in the face. I'll consider opening for Beta testing as soon as I overcome my incompetence. <3
