WorldGuard

Logo

WorldGuard is a powerful plugin providing all the little things (and some big ones), and it protects your servers from various problems.

  • 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?

Getting Started

Installation

Bukkit is currently required. In the future, WorldGuard will be available for Forge and other APIs.

  1. Install WorldEdit first. (DON'T FORGET THIS)
  2. Download WorldGuard and install it the same way.
  3. Run your server once to generate the files.
  4. Edit plugins/WorldGuard/config.yml to your liking.
  5. Use the command /wg reload to reload your configuration (use worldguard.* for all permissions).

To setup protected regions or the blacklist, you'll have to read the wiki (see below).

Documentation

What are the permissions? The commands? Check out the wiki below.

    I've used this plugin for years now, and for the first time I encountered a severe bug. I have a region I placed using mcedit, then brought into the world using worldedits restore feature... but now when I attempt to claim a region within the area I restored via define it does not protect chests. It will protect the blocks, but chests are vulnerable. This little bug allowed my server to completely rob my mall blind... so it's been a rough night for me (after a long day of work.)

    I am using Tekkit 1.3.2 (Bukkit 1.2.5) with WorldGuard 5.6.5 (also tested and not working on WorldGuard 5.6.3.)

    Again, WorldGuard will protect other areas, but it completely fails to secure my chests in this area (and there are a LOT of them - too many to LWC without taking hours to do so.) If anyone knows what may be causing this, please let me know... Perhaps the latest WorldGuard really doesn't work for 1.2.5, despite it saying it does?

    I need help. im new to this. when i use /region define <name> <owner> it saves correctly and everything, but the owner that i had set for the region define command cannot build. he is on the default for group manager, no op or admin or anything. Even though he is saved as the owner, he cant build there.... Help?

    I have mob spawning disabled in a section of my map and this is what's happening right on the edge of where the disabled meets the enabled: http://i.imgur.com/uxzvD.jpg

    Any way I can fix this?

    It should, yes.

    Read the big thing that says "USING THE 1.4.5 CRAFTBUKKIT RECOMMENDED BUILD? UPDATED TO 1.4.6 ALREADY?"

    Does the updated version also protect item frames?

    I keep getting this error. It starts a few seconds after the server loads, but the error happens constantly.

    http://pastebin.com/Cw004USU

    Craftbukkit is updated to 1.4.3-R0.3 (the latest beta build). I updated all the plugins I use. I'd be happy to make a list of the plugins I use if it is necessary.

Were you aware that we have an IRC chat to get help in? You can access it at http://skq.me/irc/irc.esper.net/sk89q/
