Colony Commands Mod by Scarabol

Special thanks to Tjohei for most of the ideas and feature requests.

Special thanks to Crone for the chat coloring system and score system.


This mods adds an anti-griefing mechanism to the server. Regular players can't change 50 blocks around the spawn point and 50 blocks around other player banners. Both values can be adjusted. Furthermore players are auto-kicked, if they kill more than 10 foreign colonists and even auto-banned if they kill more than 50 foreign colonists. Both values can be configured in the savegame folder.

Players are also able to whitelist friends by writing /antigrief banner [friendly-player-name] in chat.

Last but not least players with master permission mods.scarabol.antigrief are able to define custom protected areas. Use /antigrief area 10 10 to restrict regular players from changing blocks in an area 10 blocks around your current position.

To disable anti-grief in case you play with friends only, just set the protection ranges in the protection-ranges.json file in your savegame folder to -1 each. The message on joining the server will still show up, but it has no effect then.


This mod adds an player activity tracker. It updates a last seen timestamp for each player, on each player login, logout or world auto-save. Furthermore the total time played is tracked.

Use /lastseen [playername] to view the timestamp for a player.

Use /top time to view a top ranking with the most time played.


This mods adds a welcome message and automatic announcements to the game. See announcements.example.json and place it in your savegame folder, like /gamedata/savegames/mysavegamename/announcements.json to activate them.


This mod adds a simple event system. Players with permission can start an event with /eventstart at any position. Then all players are allowed to join using /eventjoin or leave the event with /eventleave. On join the players are warped to the event position. On leave players are warped back to their original position before the event. Same applies if an event is stopped using /eventstop. Stopping an event also requires the permission. There can only be one event at a time.

Colonists Cap

This mod can set a maximum for each players colonists number. Each colonist beyond the limit will be killed. By default the limitation is disabled.

Players with mods.scarabol.commands.colonycap permission can use /colonycap [max-number-of-colonists] [check-interval-delay] to configure a limit or /colonycap -1 to disable the limitation.

Fast Travel System

This allows all players (no permission required) to use /travel to warp themself from a start-point to the travel path end-point.

Creating travel paths requires permission mods.scarabol.commands.travelpaths

Use /travelhere to start a travel path.

Use /travethere to set the end-point of a travel path.


Use /whisper [playername] hello friend or /w [playername] hello friend to send a chat message to a specific player instead of the complete server.


Use /mute [playername] [minutes] to block a player from EVERY chatting for certain minutes. After timeout the player is automatically unblocked or one can use /unmute [playername] to remove the blocking manually.

Muting and Unmuting players requires the mods.scarabol.commands.mute permission.
