    BorderGuard 4.40

    BorderGuard is the MOST efficient Border plugin available!
    100,000+ downloads! Thank you for your support!

    This plugin prevents people from exploring beyond a defined border. This plugin checks for all movement, including vehicle movement, and will keep you within the border even if you remain within a vehicle.

    http://minerealm.com/plugins/borderguard/BorderGuard.jar (v4.40)
    (If you appreciate this plugin, please feel free to leave a comment below. =])

    To set an invisible border:
    /setborder <distance> <square|round> - Set the border, and the distance of the border from your current point. Optionally, also specify if the border is to be square or round.

    To disable the border:
    /disableborder - Remove the border.


    Only the person who first uses the /setborder command can use it again, or remove the border.

    The plugin has multi-world support. When setting a border, you're only setting the border for the world you're presently situated in. You'll need to set a border for each separate world.


    Version History:
    V4.40 - Fixed vehicle teleportation & added Material data support.
    V4.31 - Added a quick fix so that it'll work with the CraftBukkit development build.
    V4.30 - Updated to work with the new Bukkit API (#1846) R5+
    Older Versions (open)

    V4.20 - Fixed it so the save-file no longer becomes corrupted with multiple worlds. Code cleanup.
    V4.11 - Changed getDisplayName() checks to getName().
    V4.10 - Major performance enhancements. Using version 4 is highly discouraged.
    V4.00 - Modified to work with the latest craftbukkit version (953). Older versions no longer work.
    V3.10 - Removed the multi-threading, was causing accuracy issues.
    V3.00 - BorderGuard Turbo! Now works with bukkit 670, and has completely overhauled the base BorderGuard "engine", resulting in a huge performance boost.
    V2.40 - Updated to work with the latest version of bukkit. (602)
    V2.30 - Resolved multi-world issues. Now properly handles multiple worlds.
    V2.20 - Updated to work with the latest version of bukkit. Existing configuration files will no longer work. (Borders must be re-defined).
    V2.10 - Updated to work with the latest version of bukkit. Fixed movement issues with the "round" version.
    V2.00 - Multi-world support, better teleporting, no duplicate warning messages, configuration file now within folder.
    V1.00 - Released plugin.

    1. Using, for example, "/setborder 5", will set the border 5 blocks away from the location you are standing. This would create a border that is 10x10 in size.
    2. For the full plugin, with physical borders and more, take a look here: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/mech-borderguard-v2-00-limit-your-map.656/

    Let me know if you have any questions, or find any problems.

    Looks like you have a corrupted configuration file. I'm assuming you used the plugin before the 4.2 update.
    I would advise deleting your configuration file, and then re-setting your borders.

    noted but for an updated feature, this is something to give a thought perhaps?
    dungeons was just an example, dividing a map into sections could be benefited in other forms aswell.

    we got 1000+ people whitelisted and adding them to the region when they want to go in or remove them when they are to get out of a region, no thank you, not even with our staffnumber we can do that..
  4. Hm yeah I understand why that feature would benefit you. But I don't think it should be added to this plugin. With the Bukkit mentality in mind, make it in a different plugin.

    Also you could make your dungeons in a giant bedrock cage, so that people cant enter or leave without teleporting. :O

    Are rectangle borders in the current version? 1.8 will be ready to use in a few days and it would be necessary to realize our plan ;)

    Is their a way so an admin can define a list of players that can go over the border? Like making the border a "Guest Area" and then let members go freely around the world. Like an exceptions list with another custom message.
    Guest reaching the limit would receive this type of message: "You have reached the Guest area limit"
    And Members could have this type of message "Exiting Guest area, build with no worries!"

    Does anybody know of an easy way to calculate a fair sized world? I know each chunk has a surface area of 16x16 blocks. I'm just unsure what a 'good' size to limit our world to would be. We're doing a world wipe for 1.8 as our older worlds have always grown too big and needed purged so we decided to start fresh for the new version and with the introduction of being able to switch between creative and survival, giving flight, meaning members can fly very fast generating new land where we don't really want, we need limits.

    I'm sorry for bothering you, but we need this :/ Is it supported (and how) or do we have to switch our border-plugin?

    My server has been crashing a lot, and I finally found out it was this plugin by removing plugins one at a time. I get a heap out of memory error. Maybe it could be an issue with 1.8 or something?

    Hey this is a very good plugin but the only downside to this is that anyone could set and disable a border. May i suggest adding permissions?

    Seems to be working fine so far on a single world on RB #1317. I haven't tested multiworld, yet.

    Tested with multiworlds on 1318 and still working fine.

    I'd also prefer some permissions.

    Possible to get the source of the plugin?
    Also it would be nice to change the Text if someone reach the boarder.
