When hosting a Minecraft server, one of the most important features to have is world protection. Nothing is worse than spending hours of hard work to build only for someone to come on and destroy it. There are plugins out there that can defend against this and protect your builds. One of the best plugins for this task is WorldGuard. This plugin has been around for years and has constant development to make sure it stays up to date with Minecraft. Protection is not all this plugin does, you can use flags to set certain variables true or false such as PvP or player damage. This plugin has everything you need for world protection and it is fairly easy to install and use. We will be walking you through how to install this plugin and how you can use it on your server.
In order for WorldGuard to work on your server, you must have WorldEdit installed onto your server as WorldGuard depends on it to function.
Install through FTP
To create a region and flag it with WorldGuard, you first have to use the “//wand” command. Once you’ve done that you must select two different points that will be the opposing corners of your region. Once you’ve done this you can then type “//expand vert” which will expand the region to be from bedrock to sky limit. Then you type in “/rg define (name)” this will create a region by whatever name you’ve chosen.
From there you can flag it with a large variety of different flags. For example, you can type “/rg flag (name) mob-spawning deny”. A command like this will then disable mob-spawning in that specific area. All flags can be found in-game by typing “/rg flags”.
WorldGuard is used in tandem with WorldEdit in order to protect your specific regions on your server such as a spawn area or PvP Arena. It can also be used to set rules for specific areas such as banning or enabling PvP or allowing or disallowing something environmental like leaf decay. WorldGuard and WorldEdit are two of the older plugins and when working together can provide your server with exactly what you need editing wise and protection wise.
In order for WorldGuard to work correctly, it is important that you make sure to use the correct version of the plugin and that you have its dependency WorldEdit installed.
