Districts is like GriefPrevention, but players can sell/buy, lease/rent their claims!

Claims are made by command, or using a golden hoe. Once a district is claimed, the district is protected from griefing. District owners can rent out a district for a weekly fee, or sell the district for a price. District owners or renters can add trusted players to a district who then have most of the same rights as the owner or renter.

Credits Video: (AbsintoJ/Districts)


  • District are made easily by using /d claim <radius>, which will make a square claim around you
  • Districts can also be made using a golden hoe - hit one corner of the claim and the other corner
  • Players are notified when they enter a district and exit a district
  • Districts are automatically protected once made - admins can change the settings via config.yml
  • Districts can be freely traded or rented out. This enables houses or buildings to be rented or sold
  • Admins can give or take blocks away from players
