    Tired of rebuilding every building in your server, because those green things ruin them all the time?
      • Tired of filling in all the explosion-created holes? Wish you could tell people to do it themselves?
      • And also you hate the mods which make the creepers just walk around without doing anything to the players?
      • Wish explosions were more or less powerful?
      • Wish creepers still blew up blocks underground?
      • Do you have a nether paradise? Do you hate the fireball spitting ghasts or players exploding beds?
      • Too much grief with TNT?
      • Those missing or randomly placed blocks from endermen triggering your OCD?
      • Having fun with fireballs but don't like the fire? Or want creepers to burn stuff too?
      • That huge hole left by Wither boss got you down?
      • Want to spawn an Enderdragon but don't like the wholesale destruction?
    If You say yes to just one of the questions, then this plugin is for You!

    This plugin by Filbert66, though its roots come from @Rothens.


    • Cancels creeper environment-destroying behavior.
      • or optionally allows it but can leave 100% of destroyed blocks, allowing easy rebuilding.
      • and/or configure a height below which it is allowed, or alternatively above which it is allowed.
      • and/or define a list of blocks that are (the only/NOT) affected
      • and optionally disable sound & smoke or player damage, if you really want to
      • and selectively configure which entities receive damage or not.
    • Cancels TNT, Fireballs, Wither explosions, ender crystal, unknown explosions (from other plugins) with all of same options as for creepers, above
      • optional different configuration for wither skulls and TNT minecarts.
    • But can damage the players in all cases! (you can now control this, too)
    • Cancel various enderman behaviors, including block pickups, or just put-downs.
      • with configurable white/blacklist!
    • cancel damage caused by lightning (for you spell-makers out there).
    • disable Wither & Ender Dragon moving through and damaging blocks
      • both support configurable blocklists
    • Detailed configuration now available!
    • Multi-world support; [In 4.17] you can now turn off Anticreeper's behavior for certain explosions in certain worlds.
    • In-game commands to query, set, and save configuration items
      • allows testing config changes without making them permanent
      • save configs to disk without every manually editing config.yml.
    • disable exploding beds in the nether
    • Override explosion power to strengthen/weaken each explosion type
    • Option to throw destroyed blocks a distance based on proximity to explosion center; or, throw whole blocks and they get placed around [n 4.18].
    • Supports multiple languages on all player messages

    This plugin is perfect used it for many years sadly now
    with the 1.17 experimental data pack to enable the new caves everything below 0 will be ignored by the plugin and creepers for example do blow up i will not give you less then 5 stars as this is experimental data pack
    but when 1.18 comes out this probably is going to have problems.
    can we get a update for this for 1.17 as well?

    great plugin but Will there be 1.17 support?I'd like that since worldguard 1.17 hasnt been released yet.

    plugin not working. used on version 1.16.5 papermc but I've been using this plugin for a long time so I hope the author fixes it. =)

    Works as intended, more light-weight than something like WorldGuard. Config file could do with some better comments.

    Version: 5.1
    The only problem i found is that creepers are still able to damage certain blocks like dirt even though i turned explodeblocks to false and erased blocks from blocklist. Other than that this is a really good plugin. Tested this version on 1.16.2

      Hmm.. Sounds like a config problem. Send me your config.yml and I will see if I see an issue or test it myself.

    This is just command prompt /gamrule modgriefing. All I wanted was for creepers to not destroy stuff without the tnt or other mobs being affected. TNT and other mob interactions are cancelled - just like turning off mobgriefing.

    pretty great although i don't think the blockphysics is working
    i use this plugin to set fires from explosions, and change explosion sizes, and also determine which types of damages can break blocks.
    LOVE this plugin
    it also stops people from being blown up laying in beds in the end and nether (it just stops them from entering beds in those dimensions)
    It can EVEN control which damages causes damage to drops, items (like carts and armorstands), entities, players, paintings. Awesome plugin
