WorldGuard is a powerful plugin providing (1) area-specific protection, (2) world protection, (3) additional game rules, (4) blacklisting, and (5) various utilities.

  • Block creeper and wither block damage, falling damage, etc.;
  • Disable fire spread, lava fire spread, ice formation, Endermen picking up blocks, etc.;
  • Blacklist certain items and blocks so they can't be used;
  • Warn moderators when certain items and blocks are used;
  • Protect areas of your world so only certain people can build in them;
  • Set areas where PVP, TNT, mob damage, and other features are disabled;
  • Protect your server from various 'exploits' like magical obsidian creation machines;
  • Disable, or enable, various Minecraft features, like sponges from classic;
  • Add useful commands like an immediate "STOP ALL FIRE SPREAD" command.
  • Enable only features you want! Everything is off by default.

Want better /time /tp, homes, warps? Get CommandBook. Want to add cool elevators and new Redstone features? How about CraftBook?

    @DropItLow123123: Go

    I would like to know this too... Also how I can allow players to right-click things. They can't even use Shopkeepers, because WG blocks it.

    How'd you allow exp drops in 6.0, when someone tries to drop it no exp appears!

    I switched from GroupManager to PermissionsBukkit and none of my players could enter group-specific world guard regions.

    Two pieces to the solution (buried in the forums):
      Edit wepif.yml to enable DinnerPerms:

        - DinnerPermsResolver

    Log should say:   WEPIF: Using the Bukkit Permissions API.

    Edit PermissionsBukkit/config.yml to add "group.groupname true" to each group


          group.default true
          group.royal true
        - default

    Is there a way to get this or WorldEdit to run on Tekkit 1.6.4? I remember it used to work on 1.5.2 of Tekkit and Tekkit Lite 1.4.7
