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?

    @daego Hmm, why do you think you are getting that error?

    It's probably because you haven't updated your WorldGuard.

    Now comes the hard part :D

    Finding the dowload link :D

    Hide and seek buddy. Let me know if you find the dowload link :D
