redProtect is an area protection mod made for users. No longer do you need to have an admin worldguard a region for you. The user can take care of themselves now.


  • Set a maximum amount of area players can define.
  • Select what material you want used, (fence or redstone currently).
  • Permission nodes to build in any region, or use commands in any region. Great for admins.
  • Very easy to understand, surround your house with redstone, stick a sign with [rp], name your region, and you're done. Great for younger players.
  • Automatically detecting info command, users will be shown all available commands.
  • Automatic backups, and save. Even if your server crashes, people will retain their protections. You can delete chunks out of the data file and it will still load a backup.
  • Two current file formats, oos & oosgz.
  • Protects from sky to bedrock.
  • Changeable maximum-area via 'options' in PEX & bPermissions. See Maximum Area Config.
  • Open source license. Source is available through github. (Link)

Upcoming features

  • Json, Yaml, and MySQL support.
  • Additional material types.
  • Possibly pooling maximum area to create towns.

Video tutorial


  • You can download the main .jar from the 'Files' section. files


  • 1.8.0: Added long-distance editing, all commands that you need to be in a region to use can now be used with a region name appended to the end. "/rp info testregion" "/rp rename AwesomeName testregion" < Renames testregion to 'AwesomeName'
  • 1.9.0: Added support for all major permission plugins through vault. ( Fixed the code internally, it's much nicer for people adding sub-plugins now. Also fixed some of the commands, /define and /redefine should be less picky now.
  • 1.9.1: Fixed quite a few debug errors, and a few interface changes. (Thanks to GodWar101 and GodWorld)

Added a simple admin wand system, define two points with the wand item and do /rp define [name] to create it.

Closing notes

This plugin uses complicated algorithms such as bounding rectangles and point-in-polygon technology for maximum performance. Feel free to edit, but re-publishing any of my code as a jar will not be tolerated.
