About WorldGuard

WorldGuard is a powerful plugin providing all the little things (and some big ones), and it protects your servers from various problems.

  • Block creeper and wither block damage, falling damage, etc.;
  • Disable fire spread, lava fire spread, ice formation, Endermen picking up blocks, etc.;
  • Blacklist certain items and blocks so they can't be used;
  • Warn moderators when certain items and blocks are used;
  • Protect areas of your world so only certain people can build in them;
  • Set areas where PVP, TNT, mob damage, and other features are disabled;
  • Protect your server from various 'exploits' like magical obsidian creation machines;
  • Disable, or enable, various Minecraft features, like sponges from classic;
  • Add useful commands like an immediate "STOP ALL FIRE SPREAD" command.
  • Enable only features you want! Everything is off by default.

Want better /time /tp, homes, warps? Get CommandBook. Want to add cool elevators and new Redstone features? How about CraftBook?

Getting Started

Installation

Bukkit is currently required. In the future, WorldGuard will be available for Forge and other APIs.

  1. Install WorldEdit first. (DON'T FORGET THIS)
  2. Download WorldGuard and install it the same way.
  3. Run your server once to generate the files.
  4. Edit plugins/WorldGuard/config.yml to your liking.
  5. Use the command /wg reload to reload your configuration (use worldguard.* for all permissions).

To setup protected regions or the blacklist, you'll have to read the wiki (see below).

Documentation

What are the permissions? The commands? Check out the wiki below.

SK's Minecraft Server

Changes in v5.9:

  • Added a config option to allow explosion flags to only prevent block damage
  • Added allow-tamed-spawns setting, on by default. This will stop WorldGuard from culling tamed animals.
  • Added config option and flag to prevent soil from drying naturally.
  • Added formatting codes, &k/l/m/n/o and &x (reset).
  • Added snow-fall-blocks option to config to restrict snow fall to certain blocks
  • Allow players to add newlines (\n) via command, not just manually in yml.
  • Allow the console to load/save all region managers with one command.
  • Changed entity report format slightly.
  • Check bypass perms for item-drop flag.
  • Check for entities and projectiles removing items from frames too.
  • Fix being able to use bonemeal to turn tall grass into double plants.
  • Fix number of arguments for migratedb command.
  • Fixed addowner/addmember commands adding command artifacts. Specifically, "-w <world>" will no longer be added when using it.
  • Fixed milking cows in protected areas due to changes in Bukkit.
  • Fixed ProtectedCuboidRegion::getPoints() returning points in wrong order.
  • Fixed snowman trails being treated as snow fall.
  • Make /rg list default to own regions if the player doesn't have permission otherwise.
  • Protected items in item frames in protected regions.
  • Resolved an issue where explosions of type OTHER_EXPLOSION were ignoring the world configuration settings.
  • Send item-use blacklist event when right-clicking entities.
  • Transformed the BlockFadeEvent handler into a switch.

    Hi, have been using WG for a while now and it's always worked. However recently I decided to make a prison section of my server. In the spawn of the prison, there are many different regions with different priorities because some overlap. I made a mine with the priority set to 3, higher than any other region, and for some reason in the mine 3 layers can not be mined by players. I copied my regions.yml file to pastebin in case anyone can help me out.

    Here's the file

    Can you use the WG tool (which I think was leather or blaze rod) and right click a block in the three layers with it? It should list the regions overlapping. Post the results.

    Blocks that don't work: -300, 1, 1513    to    -302, 3, 1505

    WG version: 5.8

    Sorry, I can't reproduce. (Tested on 5.9)

    Maybe post a screenshot of the error as well, a screenshot of the result of the WG wand tool, and a screenshot of the WorldEdit "/info" tool on that block.

    Also make sure that spawn protection in bukkit.yml is set to 0.

    In about half of the mine the regions are pmine and spawn, and then the other half is pmine pvp1 and spawn. Does this mean that the spawn region is at a higher priority than pmine even though it's set to be a lower priority?

    No.

    Can you give me the exact coordinates of some blocks that aren't working correctly?

    And what version of WG do you have?

    Question, I have used the blacklist for anvils (Works perfect) and wanted to do the same to brewstands. This is for specific classes, and thats why the ignorelist is like it is.

    [379]
    ignore-perms= '*'
    ignore-
    groups=Admin,thiefi,thiefii,thiefiii,thiefiv,thiefv,thiefvi,thiefvii,thiefviii,thiefix,thiefx,outlawxi,outlawxii,outlawxiii,outlawxiv,outlawxv,as
    sassinxi,assassinxii,assassinxiii,assassinxiv,assassinxv,shadowkinxvi
    on-use=deny,tell
    on-interact=deny,tell
    on-place=deny,tell

    I had it as use and interact for anvils and it worked, but for some reason no matter what I try, I can not block the USAGE of the brewstand, like accessing the gui. Anything Im doing wrong here? I cant figure it out.

    I personally would like to thank sk89q for his hard work for this great plugin, to thank him for all the times my server could have been majorly griefed at spawn, but wasn't, for adding in creeper block damage false, wow, Awesome plugin, keep up the great work!!!  

    P.S. The Region flag _global_ mob-spawning deny is so awesome as I did not want any mobs in plotworld and poof, I don't have them, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    This is a really great plugin! Almost every server uses it, it's like GriefPrevention but with more settings like to allow PVP or disable mobs from spawning or make a greetings message when you enter an area and stuff like that!

    Shame it uses so much RAM on some servers.
