##Disabling/Enabling MobHunting

Sometimes you don't want players to get money from killing monsters. You might have a special games world, or want it to be rank based

If you want to disable MobHunting in one or more worlds, you just need to put the worlds names into the 'disabled-in-worlds' list in the configuration file.

general: disabled-in-worlds: [games,world_nether]

NEW Feature: You can add regions in disabled worlds and set the Worldguard custom flag 'MobHunting allow', to enable MobHunting in a limited area in the world. OR you can disable Mobhunting in a worldguard region with the custom flag 'MobHunting deny'.

Example /mh region peaceful_area mobhunting deny

If you want to disable MobHunting per player or per rank, you can use the permission:


which every player has by default
