GriefPrevention 15.1 for 1.10 Servers

PREVENTS all forms of grief - build/break, theft, spam, spawn camping, and more without a database.

  1. Big_Scary
    Stop responding to grief and prevent it instead. Grief Prevention will solve your grief problems without a roster of trained administrators, without 10 different anti-grief plugins, and without disabling any standard game features. Because Grief Prevention teaches players for you, you won't have to publish a training manual or tutorial for players, or add explanatory signs to your world.

    Grief Prevention stops grief before it starts automatically without any effort from administrators, and with very little (self service) effort from players. Solve all your grief problems with a single anti grief download, no database, and (for most servers) no configuration customization.

    The Manual

    If you're new to Minecraft servers, you can learn how to set up a Minecraft server to run GriefPrevention and other plugins here.

    If you're not running a 1.8 or later server, you can get older builds of GriefPrevention on the BukkitDev page.

    A Must-Have for for any public minecraft server, GriefPrevention lives up to its promises and makes your server as safe as it can be from griefers and other damage. Highly recommended.
  2. FireDragon1
    Version: 15.0.1 for 1.10 Servers
    Very, very useful and well-built. Simple yet important to have if you want players to not destroy something specifically and/or not grief others!
  3. DEcobra11
    Version: 15.0 for 1.10 Servers
    Using it since 2012 in my servers and it never has failed me, best so far :).
    It really is lightweight and it's very useful with realestate addon.
  4. Tallcraft
    Version: 15.0 for 1.10 Servers
    I love this plugin. It's the perfect solution against griefs. The configuration is very easy and has good defaults. Commands are intuitive and easy to learn for the players. Did not have any issues with it so far, runs very smoothly.
    Keep up the good work!

      Please install the correct version of WorldGuard.

    Version: 14.9.1 for 1.10 Servers
    I Love Grief Prevention but I have my hands tied. I'm stuck using 1.7.10 - I can't go to bukkit for support because I'm banned there and I have Bugs/glitches with GP 9.1
    would there be any chance to update or apply the newer patches and API updates for 1.7.10?
    (not even flags works with 1.7.10 at the moment)

    Some players getting negative claims after try to abandon in creative world
    (-180) Sandbox(-95,2,18)

    apparently, some claims in creative are vanishing when they leave
    which leaves to auto restore kicking in.

      Version 14.9.1 is made for 1.10 servers, not 1.7.10 servers.
  7. dangerORclose
    Version: 14.9.1 for 1.10 Servers
    Perfect plugin!
    But its hard for players to understand how it works to add friends,
    They trust then, but then they notice they can not open chests. Also they play with friends and player1 has 100 blocks and player 2 100, but they need 200 they cant give claimblocks away. Also when player 1 claims and player 2 nearby its a mess.. So i was thinking about a feature so when they claim close to another claim (set in config) they get asked or notified that there claim is added to "player's claim" and they can build in it.

    My favorite plugin, removes 90% of administration work, and keeps players happy. They take matters into their own hands and enjoy the sense of security and delegation this plugin provides.
  9. RoboMWM
    Version: 14.9.1 for 1.10 Servers
    Still maintains to be quite stable and reliable throughout all these years; and although it takes time, he does accept pull requests and is open to allowing more API access to the plugin.

    Version: 14.9.1 for 1.10 Servers
    Only recently did i [re]discover this plugin and i'll rate it 5 star. very awesome, appreciated, and ultimately useful.
