About ProtectionStones

Griefing Protection

ProtectionStones allows a player to place a special block, and this protects their area from griefing.

This small plugin was inspired by PreciousStones but only has the property protection blocks. This allows players to place one of three types of ore blocks to protect their property.

The player doesn't require any special permissions, they just need to get one of the three following ore blocks which you can give or sell in game using other plugins:

Coal Ore gives 11x11x11 protection area.

Lapis Ore gives 21x21x21 protection area.

Diamond Ore gives 41x41x41 protection area.

See the Configuration Page if you would like to change the block types, the dimensions or even set the Y-Axis to be from sky to bedrock, set group limiting, etc.

When the player places the block it creates a WorldGuard Region that gives the player ownership of that area and in turn grief protection. If the player breaks the ProtectionStone then they get the stone back and the region is removed from WorldGuard's Region List.

To install simply copy the ProtectionStones.jar file to your plugins folder, no configuration necessary. The following Ore Blocks are supported as the defaults: Coal Ore, Lapis Ore, Diamond Ore.

ProtectionStones Regions

ProtectionStones Creates WorldGuard Regions with the following naming convention:




The x, y, and z coordinates are the location of the placed ProtectionStone which is in the center of the WorldGuard Region it creates. If the Region.SKYBEDROCK Setting is set to "true" (see the Configuration Page) then Y-Axis of the ProtectionStone isn't necessarily the vertical center of the region.

Incompatible with PreciousStones

Both plugins act on the same kind of ore blocks and have the same command name of "/ps".

Requires WorldGuard

WorldGuard is used to create and remove regions when the blocks are placed, otherwise ProtectionStones won't do anything (set not to load if WorldGuard isn't found).

    I have a problem with the plugin, when an user puts a protection stone and he/she try to use a crafting table he can't. How can I solve the problem?

  • #3

    I have a problem with the default flags for the worldguard regions that ps makes when a stone is placed. The default flags it makes are:

    -Greeting: "Entering .......'s protected area"

    -Farewell: "Leaving ......'s protected area"

    -Use: deny

    I want to change the default use=deny to use=true, so everyone can open doors, chests, furnaces, etc. I am trying to make it so that ps protects the blocks, but players need to use lockette to protect their chests, furnaces, etc. Changing the flag manually fixed the problem, but I do not want to change the flag for every region created. Is there any way to change this?

    What versoin of minecraft and world gaurd are you using?

  • #5

    Ahh I found the solution to the problem.

    In the config, there is an area for flags. There is, of course, the greeting ** Entering xx's protected area ** and the farewell, as well. There should also be 'use'. Just delete that.

    Best of luck!

    mmh.. Looks interesting but there is one slight problem that is holding me back. My server runs a creative world, and people can just spawn in the blocks. If there would be a way possible to make another block that is called protectstone which has the texture of diamond, but is not possible to just spawn in creative mode. But looks good, if you make it as I told, I'll use it on my public server.

    Try finding a block that is not in the creative menu. There are some blocks, such as primed TNT, which will not spawn in the creative menu, that you may be able to use. Not perfect, but it's the best you can do.

    Use a plugin called LimitedCreative
