About WorldGuard

WorldGuard is a powerful plugin with a large bag of tricks for server owners, server map makers, regular survival servers, and everyone in between!

  • Create zones in your world that only permit mods or certain players from building within
  • Set additional game rules on your server (deny wither block damage, falling damage, etc.)
  • Set game rules on specific areas (food regen, health regen, disable PvP, TNT, control mob damage) in your world
  • Blacklist certain items and blocks so they can't be used
  • Dump useful statistics and information about your server (/wg report -p)
  • CPU profile your server (/wg profile -p)
  • Add useful commands like an immediate "STOP ALL FIRE SPREAD" command.
  • Works, more or less, with mods (other Bukkit plugins and FTB mods)
  • Protects against many types of grief (fire spread, tree growth, TNT cannons, piston machines, crop trampling, paintings and item frames, etc.), and certain interactions can also be allowed (door open, lever usage, etc.)
  • Well documented, and one of the oldest Minecraft projects (older than Bukkit!)
  • Open source
  • Enable only features you want! Everything is off by default. You can just install WorldGuard and configure it later.

Also, check out these plugins: CommandBook and CraftBook

SK's Minecraft Server

This version supports Minecraft 1.7.9, 1.7.10 and 1.8.

NEW DOCUMENTATION: There is new documentation.

Changes in 6.1

  • Added exit-via-teleport flag (default allow) to control exiting an exit=deny region via teleportation.
  • Added a fall-damage flag to control player damage caused by falling.
  • Added a time-lock flag to lock players' time of day. Valid values are from 0 to 24000 for absolute time, or +- any number for relative time.
  • Added a weather-lock flag to lock players' weather. Valid values are "clear" or "downfall". Unset to restore to normal world weather.
  • Added -s to the event debugging commands to show a stack trace rather than attempt to detect the causing plugin.
  • Added support for using the -e argument (sets an empty value for the flag) in the flag set command when the type of flag is of the 'set' type.
  • Added NPCs from the Citizens plugin to a whitelist so they are not protected.
  • Added support for Spigot's BlockExplodeEvent.
  • Changed tripwire to fall under the use flag.
  • Changed enderchests to fall under the use flag.
  • Changed vehicles and animals so they are not included in the interact flag.
  • Changed the display of custom blacklist messages to no longer include a period at the end.
  • Changed protection logic to consider connected chests.
  • Changed the heal and feed flags to increase values for players who are invincible (or in creative mode) but not decrease them.
  • Changed PvP protection to consider both attacker and defender locations.
  • Fixed missing protection data for some 1.8-added blocks.
  • Fixed compatibility issues with MC 1.7.
  • Fixed inverted daylight detectors not being protected.
  • Fixed spawn eggs not being included in protection.
  • Fixed piston blocking not working due to a bug in Spigot.
  • Fixed the blocking of certain invalid entity damage events.
  • Fixed creeper explosions not being blocked in certain situations with explosion related flags set.
  • Fixed "stickiness" with some position-related flags, sometimes resulting in rubber banding in the exit flags.
  • Fixed armor stands so that they are treated more like item frames than mobs.
  • Fixed blocks (e.g. sugar canes) adjacent to physics blocks (e.g. sand) not updating.
  • Fixed a NullPointerException that occurred sometimes when generating the scheduler section of the report function (/wg report).
  • Fixed the "no XP drops" configuration not functioning following a previous release.
  • Fixed changes to region ownership sometimes not triggering a region database save.
  • Fixed bucket protection displaying the "deny effect" even if bucket use was not prevented.
  • Fixed CommandFilter matching emoticons and other unwanted characters.
  • Fixed an exception occurring sometimes during game mode changes.
  • Fixed primed TNT being checked twice for TNT flags.

    This may have already been done, but since forge seems to be the only game in town for my needs, I was wondering if you had plans to make a version of this that will work with the forge version of worldedit.

    I'm not throwing away customNPC's, so we're all running forge right now and waiting for sponge to finally come out.

    Sadly, as it stands right now, there isn't really a good area protection mod out there that I have found.

    If anyone knows of one, I'm open to suggestions.

    Probably not any time soon. My modded server is running the Forge server now too due to the circumstances so I have to port over some of my server's stuff, and it does have protection, but it's very different from how WG does it: chunk based, only player oriented, and it requires MySQL.

    I need a 1.7.2 version for my server ;-;

    Re: WorldGuard + essentails (plugin)

    Do this work with essentials? On my server random plugins doesn't work because essentials tries to be the 'boss' (and don't allow other commands). So do this plugin work to use?
