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!
If you place your protection while crouching, it will not create the protection and just place the block like normal.
Allow Your Friends
Allowing your friends is as easy at one two three! First, choose if your friend is a coowner or a guest:
- coowner - The preferred default. Allowed to modify protection, remove the field, remove and add members, and manage flags.
- guest - For those you don't trust. Allowed to do stuff in the field, but not allowed to modify the protection.
Allow a Friend: /ps allow [username] [guest/coowner].
Allow a Friend to All Protections: /ps allowall [username] [guest/coowner]
Remove a Friend: /ps remove [username]
Remove a Friend from All Protections: /ps removeall [username]
Visualize a Protection: /ps visualize
Change the Radius of a Protection: /ps setradius [radius]
Redefine a Field's Bounds:
- 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!
Public vs Private
The two primary types of LWC protection are:
- private - default on most inventory blocks, disallows non-modified players from accessing the inventory
- public - default on most non-inventory entities, allows anyone to interact with it but not destroy it
If you run /cpersist before running any of the commands below, your commands will persist every single time you click on a block. It is useful if you want to remove protection from a bunch of blocks at once: run cpersist and then cremove and click on all the blocks. Run the command again to disable.
When you place an inventory block, it will be automatically protected as private.
When you place an interactable block, it will be automatically protected as public
Remove a Protection: /cremove, then click on the block.
