A warp/home plugin that allows for private, listed, and unlisted warps.

NiftyWarp was written because I wanted to create and manage warps in a way that was easy, but that didn't end up in a giant, cluttered-up list for everyone on the server. However, I didn't want to simply create personal warp lists only because I wanted the make sure it was easy for people to be able to share access to their warps if they so chose.

  • Warp Types
    • Create "listed" warps that are visible and useable by anyone.
    • Create "unlisted" warps that are invisible to others, but still useable by anyone.
    • Create "private" warps that are invisible to others, and only useable by you.
  • Change warp type for easy sharing with others.
  • Simple home warp creation and usage (e.g. /home, /sethome)
  • Cross-World Warping
  • Clearly see which warps are yours and which ones belong to others
  • Configurable default type
  • Permissions support (and three non-permissions-plugin options as well)

PermissionsBukkit (Optional) - tested with 1.3


  1. Download latest JAR from this page.
  2. Stop your server.
  3. Delete previous NiftyWarp .JAR file from your Bukkit server plugins folder.
  4. Copy your newly downloaded NiftyWarp .JAR file to your Bukkit server plugins folder.

In order to be able to function alongside other warp plugins, all of the main commands are unique to NiftyWarp and prefixed with "nw". However, for ease of use, I've also included quite a few common and intuitive aliases. Please see the for more info.

Permissions Plugin Nodes

User: These permissions are for managing and using your own warps.

  • niftywarp.use.add
  • niftywarp.use.delete
  • niftywarp.use.home
  • niftywarp.use.homeset
  • niftywarp.use.list
  • niftywarp.use.rename
  • niftywarp.use.set
  • niftywarp.use.warp
  • niftywarp.use.warptocoord
  • niftywarp.use.version

Admin: These permissions will allow you to delete/rename/set other people's warps.

  • niftywarp.admin.delete
  • niftywarp.admin.rename
  • niftywarp.admin.set

PermissionsBukkit notes:
For "easy" setup when using PermissionsBukkit, see the Example PermissionsBukkit page.

Non-Permissions-Plugin Rulesets
Regardless of whether or not you have the PermissionsBukkit plugin installed, you can configure NiftyWarp to use that plugin or to not use it. If you set use-plugin to false, you can use the following alternative permission options:

  • ops-only - means only Ops can use this plugin's commands.
  • ops-for-admin - means only Ops can use the admin type functionality (such as renaming other people's warps).
  • ffa - or Free For All ... means anyone can use any commands/functionality
