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.

    @Tyounr: Go

    You probably figured it out by now, but a flag for that exists:

    /region flag [region-name] entity-item-frame-destroy [deny/allow]

    Is there a way to make it so only certain groups can enter an area? like is there any permissions? if not, i really want a feature where you can give a permission to a group to enter the area. plz, i need this!

    Doesn't work in the config for whatever reason, I'm probably doing something wrong, however I want it as a flag, not a world setting. Adam - Relentless CEO/Owner [IP:]
