What is it?

ForceGameMode Allows you to force a gamemode Upon your layers using either permissions or a command. Commands like /gamemode will not work for a player that has been put into a forced gamemode.


  • Forcing Players into a Gamemode
  • Forcing ALL Players into a Gamemode
  • Run a Configurable Command on Player Join


You can use either /forcegamemode or /fgm as a prefix for any of the commands.

/forcegamemode [player] [gamemode]: Will force a gamemode on a player.

You can use either (0, 1, 2) or (c, s, a) or (creative, survival, adventure) for gamemode.

/forcegamemode remove [player]: Will remove the forced gamemode on a player.

Warning:Will not work if permission is used to force a gamemode.


forcegamemode.gamemode.survival: This will force a player or group into the Survival gamemode.

forcegamemode.gamemode.creative: This will force a player or group into the Creative gamemode.

forcegamemode.gamemode.adventure: This will force a player or group into the Adventure gamemode.

forcegamemode.admin: This will allow access to all of the commands.

    Is this the kind of plugin one would use if they wanted to make adventure mode a punishment for griefing?

    can this force a specific world to be on a gamemode?

    if not can you direct me to a plugin that does?

    Tacticalsk8er PLEASE READ.

    Currently you have it so that this happens:

    If Group = x then GameMode = forcedGameMode

    Would it be possible to reverse it and have it so that this happens:

    If GameMode = x, Group = ForcedGroup

    I'd like it if when you change GameMode to Creative you get the CreativeGroup Permissions And when you change GameMode to Survival you get the SurvivalGroup Permissions

    This would mean that on my server a admin could make a guest Gamemode Creative and so they get set to the CreativeGroup and have access to things like World edit permissions, then if they Change Gamemode to Survival to test things they then get put back into the Guest or SurvivalGroup with the lack of World edit permissions

    Possibly run a check function when a player changes GameMode

    Get PlayerGM;
    Get PlayerGroup;
    If PlayerGM = Creative
     and PlayerGroup != Creative
      Set PlayerGroup = Creative
    Else if PlayerGM = Survival
     and PlayerGroup != Survival
      Set PlayerGroup = Survival

    Will be updating this plugin shortly. Probably a complete rewrite.

  • Avatar of Ugpzt Ugpzt Jan 16, 2013 at 14:37 UTC - 0 likes would this work for permission system with inheritance?



    where [user] inherits [default]'s permissions.

    Testet with Tekkit 3.1.3 (using CB 1.2.5). Works great! Realy cool plugin to make sure mods are not giving out creative to friends. :)

    There seems to be a delay with the gamemode change could you make it instant?
