    v2.4.2 Released - 9/24/2011​
    See the change log for details.​
    Everyone using PermissionsEx, Essentials, or anything else besides the regular permissions plugin or PermissionsBukkit should add or change this in their config under the Global section:
    LegacyPermissions: true
    As of 2.4.0 the bPermissions plugin is supported directly.​
    As of 2.3.7 the PermissionsBukkit plugin is supported directly.​
    This support is not done through the new built in Permissions that bukkit provides, because there is no way to get a players group using the built in methods. However, by supporting this directly, you can now use the new permissions system while still keeping Residence, and not having to use old permissions at all anymore.​

    Residence Signs (by KarnEdge)​

    NOTE: All Residence usage information has been moved to the wiki!

    Residence is different from most protection plugins in that it aims for the users to be able to protect their own homes without having to bother the admin to do it. Residence has support for a variety of different protection types including preventing movement through areas, all of which can be configured by the land owner, and limited by the admin.​
    Features (open)

    • Allows players to define protected areas for themselves.
    • Individual permissions for each protected area. Land owner can give / deny permissions globally or to other specific players.
    • Different permissions per land include: move, build, use, pvp, fire, teleport, monsters spawn, damage prevention
    • Support for group permissions on protections.
    • Multi-World support.
    • Teleport system to allow users to teleport to residences.
    • Collision detection system to prevent residences from overlapping.
    • Limits to protected size can be set up by the admin.
    • Limits to number of protected areas per player can be set.
    • Two ways to select land including using the select command, or using a item to select 2 points.
    • Messages when you enter / leave a residence. (customizable)
    • Land "leasing" system which requires users to renew the lease on their protection every X number of days or loose the protection. (off by default, see config file)
    • Recursive Sub-zoning. Create zones within zones, and then zones within those zones...
    • TONS of configuration for admins. Customize every single flag that players can or cannot use in the config file, based on their permissions group.
    • (Optional) IConomy support, can set up cost per X number of blocks protected.
    • (Optional) Permissions support.
    • In-game help / commands descriptions

    • Fix bug affecting some people with the new save system
    • Support for iConomy 6
    • Prevent enderman from messing with blocks in residences with the -build flag.
    • Paintings are now protected properly (Thanks JustinGuy!)
    • Fix Rent auto-renew bug.
    • Fix other miscellaneous small bugs.
    ChangeLog (open)

    • Support for bPermissions
    • Add "/res pset <residence> [player] removeall" command to remove all flags for that player
    • Added console only command "/resworld remove [world]" to remove all residences in a world.
    • "/res remove" now requires confirmation using the "/res confirm" command, before removing a residence.
    • Fixed subzone flag.
    • Fixed a few null pointer exceptions related to the "/res message" command, and a few other issues with it as well.
    • Fixed few cosmetic rent message bugs.
    • Fixed few mispellings...
    - Added name filter to Residences to prevent characters that mess up YML from being used. This should fix many of the errored YML files that people have been getting.
    - Fixed arrow damage in no-pvp zones (bug introduced in the Residence 1060 update).
    - Added a "Permissions Group" line of text into /res limits, this will show your Permissions group as reported by Residence.

    - Fixes to better handle the piston flag, and world "flow" flags (thx JustinGuy :) )
    - "Use" flag now covers trap doors.
    - Lease renewal can now be pulled from the Residence's bank.
    - Buying a residence now causes the default flags to be set for the user who is buying it.
    - Minor fixes to new PermissionsBukkit support (fix message about permissions not being detected when it actually was)
    - Added a few miscellaneous forgotten commands to the in-game Residence help.

    • Added direct support for PermissionsBukkit (doesn't go through the bukkit API)
    • Added LegacyPermissions true/false config option.
    • Support for residence.admin and residence.create permission nodes using new permission system.
    • Recommend using SuperPermsBridge or something that ensures backwards compatibility with old permissions.
    • Few permission changes to hopefully make it work better.
    • Fix for firespread flag with CB1000.
    • Added "piston" flag.
    • Fixes for CB1000
    • Fixes for a few minor bugs, and for concurrent modification issue with the Lease Manager.
    • Removed subzone list from /res info, and gave it its own command that supports multiple pages, /res sublist <residence> <page>
    • If the save file errors, it will now be preserved rather then overwritten, it will be renamed res-ERRORED.yml, the plugin will now disable itself upon error as well unless the StopOnSaveFault option in the config is set to false.
    • Fixed non-working per-world flags.
    • Fixed a few message bugs.
    • Add /resadmin removeall <player> admin command to remove all residences owned by a player.
    • Changed MaxUpDown in the default config to 128...
    • Fixed issue with /res vert still selecting more then the MaxUpDown allowed.
    • Fixed a few initial issues with a couple language localization messages.
    • Removed area list from /res info, use /res area list [residence] or /res area listall [residence] now.
    • New language localization system, upon first run v2.3 will create a Languages folder under your Residence config folder with the default English.yml file.
    • New in-game help system. (part of the new language localization system)
    • All commands now run without admin privileges unless you specify /resadmin before.
    • Added config option to allow rented residences to be modifiable. (PreventRentModify option)
    • Fixes to improve compatibility with Permissions 3.X
    • /res listall now has pages
    • Added the "physics" flag to control block movement. (separated from the flow flag more like)
    • New ResidenceTPEvent, and ResidenceRentEvent API events
    • Fixed residences not being properly removed from lease / rent system, upon deletion.
    • Fixed bug related to default group option in the config.
    • Fixed global "container" flag bug.
    • Fixed some NPE's related to explosions.
    • Added /resload command to load the save file after you make changes to it (UNSAFE, as it does not save residences first, and so you may loose new residences that were just created)
    • Added per residence Blacklist/Ignorelists that will allow you to specify certain block types to be ignored from residence protections, or unable to be placed in residences.
    • Added Server owned land, use /resadmin server <residence> to change the owner to "Server Owned"
    • Added global Ignorelists which allow certain block types to become unprotectable for the whole world / for a specific user group.
    • Fixed a couple bugs with the lease system, including being enabled when it shouldn't be and the lease auto-renew option.
    • Added "/res area replace" command, allows you to resize / move a physical area. If the new area is bigger, it will only charge you for the difference in size.
    • Added 'waterflow' and 'lavaflow' flags which override the flow flag if set.
    • Fixed a bug causing money to still be charged when failing to add a area to a residence.
    • Fix case sensitivity bug in rent system.
    • BOSEconomy support.
    • Essentials Economy support.
    • RealShop Economy support.
    • Added the 'place' and 'destroy' flags, which if used overrule the 'build' flag. These allow you to give only block placement permissions in a certain area, or only block destroy permissions.
    • /res check [residence] [flag] <player> command, this command evaluates if <player> is affected by [flag] at [residence]. You can leave off <player> and it will use your name.
    • Added a LeaseAutoRenew config option, that will cause leases to automatically renew so long as the player has the money to do so. Note that, if economy is disabled this doesn't work, as there would be no point to leases. Needs Testing! :)
    • Global FlagPermission config section, that allows you to give permission to use a flag to all groups, useful for the build / move / use flag that you almost definitely want everyone to have access to. Flags under each individual group will overrule these.
    • You can now set a limits on how deep or how high protections can go into the group, using each groups MinHeight and MaxHeight settings.
    • /res select sky, and /res select bedrock commands, these auto adjust to the above mentioned MinHeight and MaxHeight settings, so it won't select into a area you can't protect.
    • Rent system implemented.
    • Many bug fixes, including proper creeper explosion prevention now. Also, fixed some bugs when renaming residences.
    • New healing flag.
    • The monsters flag has been split up into "animals" and "monsters" now.
    • New Developer API, including custom Bukkit events.
    • New Global CreatorDefault / GroupDefault / ResidenceDefault flag sections to help clean up the Groups section, and remove redundant flags.

    Point1: I was having an issue where all of a sudden residence dumped the world save files and residence wasn't working or being saved. I have worked out the solution.

    Point2: Seeing as though the dev of this plugin seems to be missing. I am looking at paying to have this plugin updated for the new minecraft release. I know my server relies heavily on this plugin. It will cost money so if you are interested in this approach then let me know.

    If you are interested in either of these two points please email me: [email protected]

    A nice feature would be an /res addmember [residence] [playername] that lets them have build, use, container, move, etc permissions instead of having to type it in all the time. Also, a lease sharing option like /res sharelease [residence] [playername] would be good with a confirmation command for the other player, ie. /res sharelease confirm. This would be good for people sharing extra large areas without having to setup rentals etc. I'm thinking in terms of clan halls, large group projects etc.

    I don't think the piston permission is working correctly. I have -piston in the "Flags" output, and +piston in "You flags". However, me (as the owner), am not able to operate pistons.

    edit: I also have -use for global permissions and +use for self permissions

    Soo.. I was looking at the API, and wanted to make a plugin for this.
    Since all residences are within a WorldGuard area, no-one can build, even when they've bought the Residence.
    I want to create a plugin that auto-creates a WG region, but don't quite know how to get the Block[] from your API.

    Could you help me with that?

    Is there a way to add exceptions for other players to residences?

    We've taken the liberty to try to write an in-depth wiki-version of a guide on Residence. We use Residence on our server and couldn't live without it. It gives players the ability to manage their own land without bugging admins all the time about griefing.

    @KarnEdge has been inactive for over a month now, is anyone interested in rewriting a plugin to emulate what ResidenceSigns performed?
    It would be much appreciated.

    Help!! I just installed this plugin and when I try to make a selection with /Res select, it says I dont have permission to make a selection, but I'm an op and have the permission node in my owner categorie. please help me! I have had continuous problems with this plugin and I would go use Towny or other plugin but they don't work near as good!

    you dont use res select just use the residence item set the points and do /res create [residence]

    I am going to pay to have Residence Signs plugin updated. If you would like to use this plugin on your server please contact me. If you contribute to the cost you will definitely receive it. The more of us who contribute the less it will cost us all.

    You shouldn't have to pay someone to do this really. Just find a willing developer who will do it for free, and I'm sure you'll find one on here...

    Are you using /stop to stop your server or just quickclosing it, because that will probably corrupt the residences.

    I was wondering, is there any way to sell or rent areas or subzones? I can't find the command for it. I made a BIG city, and want to rent houses inside, but I there's no command specified for it in the market section. Help?

    There is, take a look at the wiki ( )
    Under the section called "Market / Economy Commands"

    hi, I got problem, I have
    # Whether or not to ignore the usual Permission flags and only allow OPs and groups with 'residence.admin' to change residences.
    AdminOnlyCommands: false
    # Setting this to true makes server OPs admins.
    AdminOPs: false

    but still, my admin cant access /resadmin or change other residences EVEN If he have residence.admin in permission. Why?
    latest res, bukkit1337. using essentials groupmanager 265.

    Did you configure Residence to use LegacyPermissions?
    Set LegacyPermissions to true in the config, like it says, in red, at the top of the OP.
  20. Offline


    Retricide - hi, yes of course i set. they can use resadmin only when I op them with /op :( but then they have different color in text chat (essentials chat)

    btw how can I understand to
    "# These groups correspond to the Permissions groups defined in your '<worldname>.yml'"
    that means it look for group names in to my Permissions?
    so I can define there more groups?
    Default: #group name
    Default2: #group name
    Which ration is for this numbers, to /res select x y z command?
    # The maximum number of blocks a Residence can be, East to West (X).
    # The maximum number of blocks a Residence can be, North to South (Z).

    cause I set them (even for default group) to 100, but I can still make only /res select 30 30 30 +-.

    thanks for your time.

    There's nothing about renting areas.
    But now using worldguard, I managed to put residences to rent. Can't change the fact that when I create a residence is already rented to me, for X days. meaning that only the creator of the residence can rent that place at the start.

    Nothing, eh?

    This appears to be working fine under craftbukkit 1490, spout 543, version 1.0

    Not working with 1.0, its wiping the [worldname.yml] files clean.

    I had to use Multiverse-Core to get it to load all my additional worlds so that residence would work correctly. Still using Transporter for transports.
  24. Offline


    Yeap, nothing, because I asked about renting AREAS or SUBZONES, not the whole residence. I thought I saw some command a long time ago, but can't find if I did or not.
  25. Offline


    You can denote a subzone by using a period.
    That should be valid whenever it asks you to input a "[Residence]."

    guys, can you help me how residence size count in config file?
    I set
    MaxEastWest: 100

    I am having a problem if somebody can PLEASE help me with. I have latest version of residence and latest 1.8.1 version of craft bukkit (recommended build).

    I created a giant land area and protected it as "Drunkenland" I then created a appartments area and am turning each square rooms into subzones to "Rent" to other players. Problem is when they rent the room its giving them the +admin flag which allows them to set flags for their room. I dont want that possible for renting. How do i set it to default where that flag is -admin?

    And no i cant just set that flag for each room cause once somebody comes along and rents a new room OR rents a room that somebody else left, now it resets the flags to this new player. Now that play has +admin again.
