Solved [HELP] Problems with checking player's location

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by LinhDoraemon, Feb 19, 2020.

  1. Hi guys, I'm making a Clan plugin. I want clans can claim a land, with the center is the chunk's center then widen in given radius. But I cant find any ideas for checking if player is in that land ( Picture )
    Do you have any suggestions for this problem ? Thank you !

  2. To recognise where a player is at and what area they enter you can listen to the PlayerMoveEvent and check their location. This is very resource heavy though.

    You haven't specified whether or not the radius is in blocks or chunks, or similar.

    If you plan to base it off an origin point with a set radius, you can just check the distance between the player's location and the center's origin. If the distance is within the radius, they are in the area.

    Some pseudo-code:

    Code (Java):
    private static final double RADIUS = 3.5;
    private final Location origin;

    public boolean inBounds(Location location) {
         return this.origin.distanceSquared(location) <= RADIUS * RADIUS;
