Protect a Book on a Lecert but also let Players read it

Discussion in 'Server & Community Management' started by Alry_FireBlade, Jan 7, 2020.

  1. Hello,
    I want to create a graveyard at my Spawn and want to present a Book on a Lecert that Players can read, but NOT take.

    I protected the area and put the Flag use on allow. The Players are able to read it, but also take it.

    How can I make it, that the Players can just Read the Book, but not take it?
  2. If you are using worldguard, I don't think you can, remove/use is the same as flag use (I think)
    But if you would create a small plugin it is possible, I think.
  3. really sad, it would be so awesome :(

    You mean like this?
    • Agree Agree x 1
  5. /cdonation in LWCX lets you make a protected lectern, where you or players can put a book in, but not break the lectern nor take the book

    yeah the worldguard dev has a flag for it now i think - see their changelog
  6. I had one in a winter event that we managed to use world guard to protect but the player could still read it... not sure what flags she used but i know its possible.
  7. uhh well, maybe go through the changelog to see. you should be able to find it there then
  8. I do /cdonation and it said left click to protect it, but when I leftclick it... nothing happens.

    I did it with interact allow and chest-access deny but people can still take the Book.

    Also tried use allow and chest-access deny but same result.
    I use WorldGuard 7.0.2

    lwcx is what i use:

    worldedit from enginehub

    worldguard from enginehub

    (dev builds)

    and i keep spigot current with --rev 1.15.1

    This is the tests i've done and the info i share with my players; we use lwc basically to control the lecterns.

    I've written it out to them, the variety of combos, of with and without protection, with and without books, etc.

    Make sure you /unlock the locked lectern first, before you make it a donation lectern.
