WorldGuard lets you and players guard areas of land against griefers and undesirables, as well as tweak and disable various gameplay features of Minecraft.

  • 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
