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.

    AFAIK you would have to edit the Source then run the build...Not too hard to learn how, lots of tutorials and I think they even tell you how to build from the source on Git.

    Is it possible to configure the messages that appear, similar to how you can edit the messages that show up in Essentials?

    @ZetTtyu: Go

    In my Prison server, I have a region set for the walls/floor with block-break deny. You could try that and add deny on one of the explosion flags on those regions? Play with priorities and should work nicely, I think. My prison walls are made out of glowstone because the former server owner didn't think about fullbright, and having a region around it works pretty nicely. Kinda messy though...
