What does it do?

BuyLand allows users to buy, sell, rent, and price WorldGuard Regions. It uses the WorldGuard Flags BUYABLE and PRICE as a starting point, and allows players to set additional WorldGuard flags as they see fit. A player simply types /buyland [Region Name] or /rentland [Region Name] 1 Week and it will deduct the money from their account. An even easier way to do this is to click on BuyLand signs. This plugin uses WorldGuard, WorldEdit, and Vault. You can also configure how many regions a single person is allowed to own, as well as the default price someone will pay if no price is specifically set. You can also set the sell back price as a percentage. The Land once bought will take a snapshot of the land and save it. As soon as the Land is sold it will restore the land back to the snapshot.

Quote from chriztopia:

I found that plugins like Towny and other plot plugins are sometimes hard to install and a pain to maintain. So I created this plugin for my servers and wanted to share it.

BuyLand - Version: 0.9.1 Alpha

Like always, please submit tickets for any defects that occur in the latest release.

When making suggestions for new features, please submit one suggestion per ticket. Try not to lump 5 suggestions in one ticket. It makes it very hard to track progress of each sub-part.

Quote from Planned in v0.8.9:
  • Any changes needed to get to Bukkit version 1.7+
  • Some small changes to signs and how players interact with them.
    • Possible changes:
      • Add a way for a player to rent an owned region.
      • Add a way for a player to sell an owned region to another player.
      • Add a way to have the money from a purchased region and a sold region transition to a bank
  • Possibly resolve some more tickets
  • Try to work on some help sections to describe in better detail how to do things in BuyLand and configuration yml files.
  • Any other items that may come up.


  • version 0.9.2 for 1.8 soon!

Version 0.9.1 Alpha

  • Now works on 1.7.2 R3+

I have tested this and it will not run on 1.7.2 R3+

Version 0.8.8

  • fixed setting WorldGuard flag so greeting and farewell flags can be cleared by setting them to an empty string.
  • added config setting: buyland.allowedWorldGuardFlags and rentland.allowedWorldGuardFlags these contain entries below for each allowed flag that can be set and its price.
    • Ex:
      • [buy/rent]land:
        • allowedWorldGuardFlags:
          • default: 0.0 This line does not matter, but should be there
          • entry: 150.0
          • game-mode: 300.0
  • Ticket 69 & 41: Added sign control to allow the adding of worldGuard region flags.
    • Sneak left-click on a Sell Back sign or Rent Extend sign to view available flags as defined in the allowedWorldGuardFlags section.
    • Added config setting: general.sign.showBuyLand [true/false] that will allow you to choose if [BuyLand] is shown on the first line.
      • if it is not shown, then "For Rent" signs will also show the rent price.
      • added /abl signFix command to update existing signs after this config setting is changed.
  • Ticket 71: When a sign for a rented region is right-clicked, the time remaining will be displayed.
  • Ticket 72: allow for a way for the owner, member or admin of a region to restore or move its sign.
    • Reworked creation of all BuyLand signs.
    • Create a new sign with the following lines:

  • Major Reworking of sign clicking actions.

  • Ticket 75: Add permission buyland.offlinelimit.exempt to prevent the automatic selling of a region for a player that has not logged for a timeframe.
  • Reworked updating of config files to be more stable.

Version 0.8.7

  • Bug fix only release
  • Tickets 65 & 66 - Fixes bugs introduced in 0.8.6
    • When a region was initially rented, rent extended, and rent region expired, the schematics were not being applied or saved from the settings.
      • It should have been looking for a setting of rentland.onRentExpire.placeSchematic, but was actually looking at buyland.onRentExpire.placeSchematic.
        • This and similar issues caused it to never find the setting for placing or saving the schematic in the onRentBegin, onRentExtend, and onRentExpire events.
        • This also affected the removelwcprotection setting in the same sections.
  • Ticket 67 - Fixes bugs introduced in 0.8.5
    • When a player with a mixed case name such as AndyCYXU buys a region, they can not sell it because it says they are not the owner.
      • When comparing the owner's name to the player's name, the players name was left upper case while the owners name was forced lower case when it was created.
        • This caused the name to not match, and flagged the player as not being the owner and denied the sale back.

GitHub - v0.8.5+ by The_Nut (Current Source)
GitHub - v0.2 to v0.8.1 by chriztopia


Visit this detailed help page for more detailed information on how Buyland works.

RentLand Config

Normally rentable regions are setup with the /rentland save [regionName] command. You can also convert an existing buyable region to a rentable region by adding it manualy in the rent.yml config file.

How to create a rentable region

You must use /rentland save [regionname] and NOT /buyland save [regionname]
Creating a buyland region and trying to place a rent sign on it will not allow it to be rentable!

How to set the sell back percentage

The sell back percentage is based on the decimal form of a percent. So 1.0 equals 100% which means if u buy land for $100 you can sell it for $100. If you set the percentage to 0.6 or 60% the sell back price of $100 would mean you will only get back $60 for selling back your land.

  • 1.0 = 100%
  • 0.9 = 90%
  • 0.8 = 80%
  • 0.7 = 70%
  • 0.6 = 60%
  • 0.5 = 50%

Sign Usage

Sign Setup

To create a buyland sign, create the region as specified above and in the How to create a rentable region help page. When placing a sign, add the following 2 lines and it will create a sign specific for the type of region it is for. Lines 3 and 4 should be blank. You can also read about signs here.

  • [BuyLand]
  • RegionName

A BuyLand sign can be placed anywhere outside the region it represents.

    I do not have time to develop this plugin and I have handed it off to several people many times. If anyone that actively develops is interested in taking over the plugin contact me.
