    Firstly, thus far this plugin has been great for us on my server :) I have read through the conf file and doco over at MassiveCraft but I think I have missed something.

    My question is on basic claiming of land via /f autoclaim

    I turned on autoclaim with the above command, walked the border of my property and waited. I was wondering, will Factions fill in the centre of the border I walked?

    Example, if I walk from point A and eventually end back at point A after walking a square, will the square be filled with Faction ownership to myself?

    What I have actually observed from the above, is that it claims the border only.

  3. Ok i found out what was wrong, it was not coz of this plugin.
    I had admins group having Groups: - default <-- and the default group had the NO create factions note -.- im such an idiot took me this long to figure out

    do i still need to worldguard protect the claimed area?
    i have small area now claimed for faction called Undead.
    Im going to make 1 more faction called Human.
    They will have other place claimed... These 2 are gonna be at war^^

    I posted it to Spout and he told me there was not really anything wrong.

    Autoclaim simply claims chunks as you walk through them, from one to the next. Whichever chunks you walk into while it's enabled are attempted to be claimed. For claiming large areas, the claim command also accepts an optional radius value (/f claim [faction] [radius]), though you should be careful with it. A radius of 2 is a 3x3 chunk area, radius 3 is 5x5 chunks, 4 is 7x7 chunks, etc.

    Protection for faction claimed areas is built-in. WorldGuard isn't required for anything related to Factions. Our integration with WorldGuard, if enabled, simply keeps people from claiming land for their faction which is part of a WorldGuard region.
    Please read the user guide for an outline of how Factions works.

    Ah, so nothing to do with Factions then. Thanks for following up on it.

    the download doesn't work for me :/....

    Forgive me for my previous questions. I've actually figured both of them out (the friendlyfire one thanks to you, of course), and I hate to keep asking questions, but I'm so foreign to this plugin. Nothing seems too awful clear-cut.

    I want to make it so that, using 1.6.7 (I am actually -not- using 1.7, I am 100% sure of this right now), members of a faction can't break/build blocks in that faction, and that only Officers and Leaders can.

    Is this possible?

    Can anyone help me? I want to change the text when I claim safezone and warzone. When I claim safezone I want it to say different text not "Safezone - free from PVP ad monsters". Can someone tell me what to do?
  9. Offline


    Care to expand on that?

    You should use Ownership (/f owner). Read the user guide for more info on it.

    You can edit factions.json manually to change descriptions and tags of system factions, but be sure to back all of your JSON files up first in case you manage to damage it.

    is there a way to put a cap on the number of factions allowed? I love this plugin but rater not have my server over run by a bunch of factions having 1-2 people, i would like to have people chose a faction to join if they wish to once the max amount of factions is reached.

    Not as such, sorry. I suppose you could remove/deny the permission to create factions once you decide thee are enough of them.

    Hey so my plugin update folder doesnt work so i have to update them manually. Well whenever i update factions, all the factions territory is suddenly unclaimed. i even had a friends faction get deleted... Is there a way to fix this? Please help because this could cause some major issues.

    I'm trying to set up Factions on my Creative and Survival multiworld server.
    I don't want to enable it in the normal worlds so i created a new "Factions" world. I already discovered that i can disable some Factionsfeatures per world (like worldsNoClaiming, worldsNoPowerLoss, worldsIgnorePvP and worldsNoWildernessProtection) but not the chatnametag-changing. Is there anyway to disable the Factiontags in the "non-factions" world? Because otherwise i don't see a possibility to use it on a multiworld-server.
    (And i don't want to have the Chat format in Creative like "[**Diamonds Creative]<frdmn> chatmsg")
    Can someone help me.

    2nd question: If i enable Factions the coloured (EssentialsChat) nicknames of chatting users in the console disappear. Can i prevent that? But thats not really important. The first question is much more urgent for me!

    Thanks for any help.

    I was looking at the config for negative power and there seems to be nothing there for if a faction or member is negative power when they keep dying they get sent to spawn or a jail. I notice ppl using this to keep killing/ boosting for stats. Is there a Jail plugin? or a Jail function so ppl don't keep killing a member pasted their negative power.

    I'm guessing you loaded Factions 1.6.6 on one of the newer CraftBukkit builds, and it therefore failed to load properly. That's what wiped your factions and territories, not the Factions version update. That sort of thing should no longer be possible to happen in future if another CraftBukkit release eventually comes out which causes a similar load failure in Factions 1.6.7 or newer.

    1. Sorry, but chat formatting can't be disabled for specific worlds. You can however completely disable it if you so desire.
    2. I hadn't noticed EssentialsChat coloring names in the console. Sounds like that would make for a rather crufty looking log file. Anyway, that's not possible to change, no.

    There's no jail functionality in Factions and it is not planned, sorry. There is also no special death handling in place for when a player goes into negative power levels, and it's also not planned. We may however eventually add some method for having players respawn in a different location if they are being repeatedly killed.

    1. Thanks for your fast reply! Do u think we are still able to play Factions even without tags? Is there a equivalent command for that? Like /f whois <player> or something to get infos about his Faction? Or are they necessarry so we can't play without?

    2. Indeed! I don't really care. That was JFYI. =)

  17. Offline


    It's certainly possible to play without faction tags. Not really recommended, of course, but workable. You can use /f who <player name or faction tag> to get info on a faction. If you use a player name, it will of course give onfo on their faction. You can also use /f power <player name> to get individual power info on a player. Please read the user guide for further info.

    I think there are problems with factions.power permissions.

    I removed the factions.power.any permission from my users but they couldn't see their own power, also i gave them factions.power but they still can't see their own power.
    I'm using PEX, do you have any idea?
  19. Offline


    Hmm, looking at the source, you might be right. That should be fixed in the next release.

    I'm having some trouble denying permissions. I'm using PermissionsEx and its said to use a second hyphen to deny the permissions node. So I have my permissions for my Default group to look like this:
    prefix: '&8Guest&7>&8'
    suffix: '&7'
    default: true
    - -factions.kit.fullplayer

    yet this group still has full access to the fullplayer commands for Factions. I've also tried using :false after the node and ^ at the beginning of it where the hyphen is.

    I have installed the latest version of Factions, and i think to had found a bug...idk why, but if my player place a block in creative,than claim, it dont work..and all can destroy it.. :( instead if he place the block in surv mode, than the claim work and anybody can destroy it..let me know if i am alone to have this bug..
  22. Offline



    For some reason Factions has decided to completely stop working - even trashing it and loading up a new .jar, it doesn't create it's config folder or anything. It's like it just never initialises itself. Even Dynmap-Factions says it 'cannot find factions!'.

    I've tried removing plugins I installed since the last time it was working, and reloading mine craft every time, but no luck.

    Any ideas at all? I'm stumped..

    EDIT: Updated to Craftbukkit R4 (R6 won't run) and I now get this in my log:

    EDIT 2:

    After disabling and re-enabling all my plugins after upgrading to R6 (reading that factions didn't work with R4) I found that DwarfForge was the plugin crashing bukkit.

    All is well now!

    2012-03-21 20:59:20 [INFO] Starting minecraft server version 1.2.3

    Had to force a stop /restart to get it running again.
    Any ideas on how to prevent this in the future ?

    I have a question that i wasn't able to find in the FAQ or configuration guide of Factions.
    I'm using the default config and I notice the max land people are able to claim is "9". Some factions have upwards of 13 players. At first i assumed it was based on the Faction size / power but it doesn't appear so.

    How do i go about allowing factions to increase their land claim limit?

    Apologies all, but I'm currently unable to spend much time at my computer so I'm probably not going to be answering many questions at all for the next few days at least.

    Yes, keep your copy of Factions updated. That would be someone running a large radius claim. For more details, read our changelog which covers that for 1.6.7.

    Breaking blocks in protected land dupes them.

    Also fire charges are still useable in faction territory... any way to turn that off?

    Server's essentially dead in the water til this updates ><

    I'd donate to you if my own people donated more ._.

    Any way to set the chat tag to abbreviate the faction name? Like only display first 2 or 3 letters?
