Latest commit 9222b3d @wizjany wizjany Doc file tweaks.


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.
