Rule Configuration

This section outlines the various options available to you for configuring your rules in your plugins/itemrules/config.yml

Rules in your rules: section are processed and applied automatically when a player logs in, levels up, respawns, changes factions, etc...

For illustration, here is an example of a rule that restricts the use of diamond swords to players whos XP level is less than 5:

        description: 'use of diamond equipment until level 5' 
            restricted: 'You cannot %s %s until level 5'
            min: 5
        actions: [USE, CRAFT]
            - 276

In the example above, diamondEquipment is the unique tag/name for this rule. It is important to note that rules are processed and applied in order so rules further down the list can overwrite earier rules.

Note on options

Notes on lists

        actions: [USE, BREAK, PLACE]

is the same as:

        - USE
        - BREAK
        - PLACE

Using item ID's

When listing itemids, you can use just the number. e.g. 17 will apply to ALL logs. If you want to specify a specific type item, use a period to seperate the main type from the sub type and put in quotes. In other words, to specify birch logs, use '17.2'
