    So if i were to want to make a plugin that uses regions, how would i go about using something like the worldedit regions to define regions for my mod? Or something like that, i hope you get my point.

    Anyone have any clues? Thanks

    Are you using Eclipse?
    If you are, you should Google: Adding external JARs.

    Wait, you probably know how to do that. Because that's also how you get a reference to Bukkit's API.

    After that, you should also specify the "dependencies" (did i spell it right?) in the plugin.yml.
    Like this:

    depend: [WorldGuard]
    softdepend: [Permissions]
    Depend is a list of plugins that are required.
    Softdepend is a list of plugins that are optional.

    In Eclipse you should also be careful with the order of the JARs.
    The Java library needs to be on top. Then Bukkit, then WorldEdit, then WorldGuard for example.
    You can change the order of the JARs in a tab, next to the tab where you add JARs.

    Sorry, I'm too lazy to Google the exact instructions.

    Last thing you need to know is:
    WorldGuardPlugin worldguard = getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin("WorldGuard");

    Eclipse will recognize WorldGuardPlugin, only if you added WorldGuard.jar via Add External JARs

    Should be
    WorldGuardPlugin worldguard = (WorldGuardPlugin) getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin("WorldGuard");
    basically, make sure the server has worldguard by in plugin.yml:
    depend: WorldGuard
    Then look at the WorldGuard API from there ;)
