Welcome! Let's begin with just a little description of this really amazing plugin named SmoothPlot.
Well, SmoothPlot is plots-system that uses WorldGuard to manage regions for players. Generally it allows you to manage plots on your server without any commands. No more need for time-taking regions creation (selecting with wand, then typing bunch of commands...). With SmoothPlot all you need to do is build a plot (plot border and not even entire) and place there a sign. Plot like this you can copy and paste (or stack, or any other duplicating method) with WorldEdit for example - and it will work without any problems!
Player just clicks a sign and plot is automatically created for him! SmoothPlot can do any operation you can do with WorldGuard commands!
But SmoothPlot is more - your players can sell their plots and invite friends! Continue reading to know more about these features!
Release yourself from Admin works and make your life a lot easier!
SmoothPlot is really features-rich (especially since v3.0):
- regions based on WorldGuard
- support for as many plot types as you want
- good permissions support
- highly customizable
- lightweight - no lags!
- additional lag prevention systems (border width limit, cooldowns etc.)
- wide economy plugins support (supported by Vault - you can use pretty any economy plugin)
- provides plots for your players
- reselling system (players can sell their plots to others)
- invitations system (players can invite friends to their plots)
- easy to setup and use - it's as easy as posting/clicking a sign!
- no need to store any data - everything is based on intelligent algorithm
- manual changes made with WorldGuard commands will NOT break SmoothPlot system
- customizable plot greet messages
This process can not be any easier!
- Download latest SmoothPlot plugin (take a look on box on the right hand and find "Recent files")
- Put SmoothPlot.jar file to your server's "plugins" directory
- Install dependencies (WorldEdit, WorldGuard, Vault and any economy plugin supported by Vault)
- Start your server
- When your server will be loaded go again to "plugins" directory and look for "SmoothPlot" folder, then get in there
- Open config.yml with any text editor (gedit, notepad-plus-plus, sublime text etc.)
- Set everything as you wish (remember to use spaces, never use tabs), define plot types (check provided example inside that config)
- Save changes and reload server
- It is done! Everything should work now!
How to use
This process is really easy. Let's do it!
- Define plots in SmoothPlot's configuration file (usually found in <server path>/plugins/SmoothPlot)
- Be sure to set correct worlds names in allowed-worlds list
- Log-in to your server
- Build a rectangle on the ground (use any material(s) you like) (actually you need only 4 blocks on X and Z axis, see screenshots)
- Place a sign on the ground and type:
Notice that you can use many materials, just count them separated with , (semicolon).
If you do not need parent region then leave the 4th line empty.
- Done! If you want you can copy this plot with WorldEdit or anything else you want.
For working example see screenshots.
This option allows players to invite friends to their plots, so they can build there. This DOES NOT make them owners, they become members and it is not count in plotting system (they can join to as many plots as they want). To invite player simply place sign like this:
Sign must be placed anywhere inside target region.
This way players can sell their plots to others. It does not affect any blocks in region, so it's nice way to sell amazing houses etc..
SmoothPlot manages WorldGuard regions only and DOES NOT remove LWC locks, so please tell players to do so before they sell something.
The only thing you need to specify is plot price. Example sign:
Sign must be placed anywhere inside target region.

- More admin commands (eg. plot removing) - however most stuff might be done via WorldGuard commands
More screenshots soon, I am too lazy to upload them now ;)
Just a little plot with a sign:
Since v3.0b you do not need entire border, 4 blocks do the work:
