Protect yourself against other players.
Check out this video for a quick summary.
Instead of a plugin like GriefPrevention, Friends Vanilla uses one called PreciousStones. PreciousStones works on a block-by-block basis, meaning when you place a certain type of block, it will protect an area around it. You can see each of these blocks below.
The Redstone Block
Protected Area: 21x21x21 (10 block radius) (redefinable)
Prevents: Placing Fire, Water Flow, Placing Blocks, Breaking Blocks, Breaking Vehicles, Entering Vehicles, Taking Item Frames, Tnt Explosions, Using Items, Harming Animals, Harming Villagers, Breaking Crops, Accessing Inventories
Limit: 25 per player (upgrade)
Notes: Does not protect against PvP.
The Diamond Block
Protected Area: 7x7x7 (3 block radius)
Prevents: Player Entry
Limit: 5 per player (upgrade)
Notes: Think of this like a force field that doesn't allow anyone inside.
The Emerald Block
Protected Area: 11x11x11 (5 block radius) (redefinable)
Prevents: Mob Damage, Mob Spawning
Limit: 2 per player (upgrade)
Notes: Prevents all mob spawning and damage, which makes them super valuable!
To allow a friend to your protection field, run /ps allow [username].
To allow a friend to all of your protection fields, run /ps allowall [username]
To remove a friend from your protection field, run /ps remove [username]
To remove a friend from all of your protection fields, run /ps removeall [username]
To visualize your protection field for 20 seconds, run /ps visualize
To change the radius of your protection field, run /ps setradius [radius]
To redefine a field:
- Shift-left click on the protection block.
- Left click on the block you want to be the first corner of your field.
- Left click on the block in the opposing corner.
- Left click on the protection block.
Only works on blocks that are redefinable.
Since Block Protection only protects people within your team (or what you specify), we've also added LWCX. LWCX will auto-protect any inventories you place, such as chests, barrels, furnaces. There are no images for this, however you can see the list of commands below to add friends to your fields!
When you place an inventory block, it will be automatically protected.
To remove protection, run /cremove, then click on the block.
To add a friend, run /cmodify [player]
To remove a friend, run /cmodify -[player]
To add an admin, run /cmodify @[player]
