    Plugin category: World Editing and Management

    Suggested name: WorldReloadr? :D I dunno, I don't think it really matters ;p

    What I want: I'd like an automatic world reloader. It would reload a world from a backup at a configurable interval. For example, a mining world. Or in my case, A Post Apocalyptic world where ghasts constantly destroy terrain and players. It could do this when everyone leaves, or it could teleport them to a different world and send a broadcast to everyone saying it's being reloaded

    As an added bonus, if you could make an option to reload just one region from a backup, That'd be awesome and i'd love you forever ;3

    Ideas for commands: /world reload <world name> (Manual world reload)
    /area reload <area name> (Manual area reload)
    /area create <area name> (No idea on how you could set the points. ;p Maybe world edit?)
    /world interval <world name> <interval> (sets the interval for reloading of the world. Something like 5h or 2m)
    /area interval <area name> <interval> (Same thing as above, but for areas)
    /worldreloader reload (Reloads config)

    Ideas for permissions: worldreloader.* (All commands)
    Worldreloader.world (Only gives access to /world commands)
    Worldreloader.area (Only gives access to /area commands)

    When I'd like it by: Take your time. I understand this might be a challenge, but i really would love something like this. :3

    These plugins are always hard to create/use because they will need MySQL db and Bukkit does not allow plugins to overwrite the world folder, I would like to take a crack at it but I just do not have the time for it right now.

    Well i tryyy to avoid MySQL Because my host doesn't provide it :p

    So is there any way, that it can regenerate a world from a backup (Creating a whole new world) And after it's done regenerating, delete the old world? Or does that just make things complicated?

    The plugins that do this often break the server. One error and *bam*, your world folder is corrupted.
