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.

    I set up a region called "spawn" and added the flag "pvp deny" and that works. Get the message that I cannot pvp when striking another player. added permissions to admins group "*". also admins are OPed. But admins cannot pvp a non-OP player (or as I like to call it "discipline") What did I miss here?

    add a flag that prevents setting worldedit selections in the region? Or any worldedit in general in the region.

    I'm having trouble with this.. Signs inside of worldguard regions aren't being protected, anyone can break them... And yes I did the flags correctly...

    Please help me! I set max claim volume to 50k blocks, and add 1 region to default. But how can i add another region, which number of blocks greater than default, only for one player?

    Maybe WG have special permissions for that, or something yet... Like wg.region.maxnumber.2 and wg.region.maxclaim.250000 ??
