WorldGuard is a powerful plugin with a large bag of tricks for server owners, server map makers, regular survival servers, and everyone in between!

  • Create zones in your world that only permit mods or certain players from building within
  • Set additional game rules on your server (deny wither block damage, falling damage, etc.)
  • Set game rules on specific areas (food regen, health regen, disable PvP, TNT, control mob damage) in your world
  • Blacklist certain items and blocks so they can't be used
  • Dump useful statistics and information about your server (/wg report -p)
  • CPU profile your server (/wg profile -p)
  • Add useful commands like an immediate "STOP ALL FIRE SPREAD" command.
  • Works, more or less, with mods (other Bukkit plugins and FTB mods)
  • Protects against many types of grief (fire spread, tree growth, TNT cannons, piston machines, crop trampling, paintings and item frames, etc.), and certain interactions can also be allowed (door open, lever usage, etc.)
  • Well documented, and one of the oldest Minecraft projects (older than Bukkit!)
  • Open source
  • Enable only features you want! Everything is off by default. You can just install WorldGuard and configure it later.

    Serious bug.

    When I do regen all chests in the area get cleared of their inventory (even when they are outside the selection).

    Version: 6.1.2-snapshot:1652-c9b8e9f

    Tried to use bug report but don't want to sign up.

    Players are capable of freezing water, and the ice not melting if there is not enough light, also in WG protected areas since 1.9.

    I've seen a ticket open on this. It was aparently fixed today, can I get a dev build on this?
