WorldGuard is a powerful plugin with a large bag of tricks for server owners, server map makers, regular survival servers, and everyone in between!

  • Create zones in your world that only permit mods or certain players from building within
  • Set additional game rules on your server (deny wither block damage, falling damage, etc.)
  • Set game rules on specific areas (food regen, health regen, disable PvP, TNT, control mob damage) in your world
  • Blacklist certain items and blocks so they can't be used
  • Dump useful statistics and information about your server (/wg report -p)
  • CPU profile your server (/wg profile -p)
  • Add useful commands like an immediate "STOP ALL FIRE SPREAD" command.
  • Works, more or less, with mods (other Bukkit plugins and FTB mods)
  • Protects against many types of grief (fire spread, tree growth, TNT cannons, piston machines, crop trampling, paintings and item frames, etc.), and certain interactions can also be allowed (door open, lever usage, etc.)
  • Well documented, and one of the oldest Minecraft projects (older than Bukkit!)
  • Open source
  • Enable only features you want! Everything is off by default. You can just install WorldGuard and configure it later.

    I'm wondering if there is a permission node needed or if its just a bug thats occuring... anyhow, recently I have been having major issues with creating regions and players dying whenever they leave a certain region or they change gamemodes. Does anyone else have this issue? For example, I recently created created a plot at my spawn for players to create an event on. I executed:

    • /region create september-event
    • /region setparent september-event spawn
    • /region setpriority september-event 100
    • /region flag september-event build allow
    • /region flag september-event passthrough allow
    • /region flag september-event chest-access allow
    • /region flag september-event use allow
    • /region flag september-event interact allow

    These are all the commands through worldgaurd I executed. I am not sure if its a A.) worldguard, B.) WorldEdit, C.) PermissionsEX or D.) Another plugin issue. Some players are fine, but other players die once they step into or try leaving a certain regioned off area. Anyone have an idea what's causing this issue? Thanks!
