What is land protection?
On the Survival server, you can build freely by typing /build. Because of this freedom, people often will destroy other structures built by other people (this is known as griefing). In order to protect your land from other people, create a land protection around your structure.
There are several major steps in creating a land protection:
Adding other people to your region
Have friends you would like to build on your protected area? You can give building permission to specific people and allow them to build and destroy blocks in the protection. Use /rg add [player] to add a player to the region, and /rg remove [player] to revoke building access. They still will not be able to add protected chests to the area or add other players.
Renaming the region
If you'd like to change the name of your region, use /region rename [name], where the name argument is the new name of the region. Make sure to stand in the region you'd like to rename, and that you are the owner of it.
Setting region flags
The owner of a region can set flags which control specific aspects of the region. Use /rg flag [flag] to toggle a flag while standing on the region you want to modify. The flags are listed below:
Deleting your protection
Use /rg delete to delete the protection you're standing in. This will not refund you, but will open up the protection to be edited by anybody (just like a normal piece of unclaimed land). Admins can delete any protection whether they own it or not.
Learning about a protection
To learn about who owns a protected region and see the list of allowed builders, use /rg info while standing in a protected area.
Listing all regions
To see how many regions you have, use /rg list. To see a list of all regions on the server, use /rg listall. Since many regions are defined, you can scroll through pages by using /rg listall [page].
What is the region marketplace?
Regions are great for protecting land, but they also can be used to sell and lease buildings. With the new marketplace feature, you can put your building up for sale or lease using regions, and create easy-to-use ways to buy the land or enter into a lease agreement.
|Selling regions||Leasing regions|
If you make a structure you'd like to sell, protect it and sell it using the region marketplace. Follow the steps below to sell your region:
Leasing regions allows you to enter into an agreement for a limited time which allows a player to temporary use a property you have created. Leases are valid for only the number of days you specify. A player can renew their lease, but if they don't renew then you the region is automtaically put up for lease again. Follow the steps below to lease your region:
Example lease agreement
Lease agreements should cover many potential issues that may arise during the lease period. Should any dispute arise, the agreement will take priority, followed by the words of the person who owns the region being leased. The person who purchases the land does not have any say in a dispute. Therefore, the agreement should include as much information as possible about the lease. You can re-use the same book for multiple regions. Lease agreements should include:
Players can, instead of typing in commands, use a sign to buy and lease regions. As the region landlord, you are responsible for putting these signs up. They can display the price of a region for sale and allow players to click to purchase the region, or they can display the current lease details and allow one-click leasing. The sign will automatically populate with all the information. To remove the sign, just break it. Removing the sign will not remove the region from the marketplace.
|If the sign is inside the region you're selling/leasing:||If the sign is anywhere, inside or outside the region:|

|Buying regions||Leasing regions|
To buy a region, first use /rg buy while standing in it. This will show you who owns the region, as well as the current state of the region in the marketplace. If the region is available for sale, the price will be shown and an underlined link will be displayed. (This information can also be displayed if you click on a region "buy" sign.) Upon clicking the link, the money will be deducted from your acount and you will be added as an owner to that region. You now have full permissions for that area, and the original owner of the region will be removed. There is no way to undo a purchase, but you are free to re-sell the land.
To lease a region, first use /rg info while standing in it. This will show you who owns the region, as well as the current state of the region in the marketplace. If the region is available for lease, the price and lease timespan will be shown and an underlined link will be displayed. (This information can also be displayed if you click on a region "lease" sign.) Upon clicking the link, you will be presented with the lease agreement. If you choose to accept the agreement, the money will be deducted from your acount and you will be added as a builder to that region. Your lease will last as long as the agreement states.
