    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.

    @Kimberly2000 Well, I only deal with plots so I wouldn't know what to do in this situation. I am no longer interested in Residence and am using SimpleRegionMarket for WorldGuard. Had to switch permissions to GroupManager and thats all I had to do. Really good plugin. Better than Residence problem wise.

    EDIT: He has said in previous comments dating awhile back that his saving system may be flawed. Its a waiting game or find something else.

    Any chance you could take over the sign plugin which apparently isn't current or functional yet seems as a nice plugin.

    Feature Wish:
    When residence period runs out due to lack of player funds, it would be nice if the residence went into foreclosure mode for X number of days awaiting funds rather than simply vanishing.

    Thankyouverymuch for an awesome plugin.

    Las tildes, las "ñ" y los "¿" no son admitidas en el lenguaje YAML. Yo tengo todas las traducciones de mis plugins más o menos adaptadas a un castellano semi-entendible. Pero el no poner tildes y buscar sinónimos para palabras con "Ñ" es un verdadero coñazo y una odisea.

    Los españoles somos negros :/

    can anyone tell me how to use the residence groups assigning with group manager

    I entered all the groups i use under the groups section of residence but it only gives all players Default permission

    I have gotten around this by adding all current players manually to the residence config but it is tedious

    i have a big problem . All works good , it havent error in console . but the residences can be destroyes by others player and the game say her that they havent permission , but they can destroy a protected house

    I have PEX iconomy6 , i modify global config EnablePermissions: true LegacyPermissions: true

    hey tio me alegro de leer españo para variar , soy nuevo , no puedo añadirte a alguna lista de conctacos o seguimiento y a ver si podemos intercambiar archivos modificados para las traducciones y esas cosas?¿

    Hey veo que eres español, puedes pasarme tus archivos de residence (el error es por la tarduccion , No se aceptan Ñ ni interrogantes y un apr de caracteres mas)

    Puedes contactarme mediante mensaje privado en este mismo foro si necesitas algo. Me gusta compartir el conocimiento así que si necesitas algo, dame un toque. Soy el creador de y bueno, se hace lo que buenamente se puede.

    Apologies for these two non-English messages.
  22. If you find an answer to this, please feel free to share it in English so little me can understand it :)

    The prob on the other hand seems to be with the encoding. Stop the server, open the worlds savefile (residence/save/world/res_worldname.yml) in something like notepad++ and change the encoding to UTF-8 from Ansi.

    Worked for me, the problem is that it resaves it as Ansi which mean I have to redo it every time I restart my server (since it keeps working fine as long as the server is running).

    Guess it's just same old, cause so many people have said this, but all the commands work except /res create, it worked until 1.0.1R1 for me, then I just got internal server error.

    I am getting the internal server error as well. Please fix this soon, this is a great plugin and would hate to try another area economy plugin D:
  25. /res create works for me. The only prob I've had is the prob with the yml-file. And that's only because I used swedish letters (å ä ö) which obviously didn't work very well.

    how to make residence create for admins only?
    I removed residence.create from default group and it ignore it
    I tried -residence.create (negative node im using group manager) and nothing..
  27. Have you checked this in the config?

        # Set to true if NOT using Permissions or PermissionsBukkit, or using a really old version of Permissions

    wipes old save, thankfully i caught this early and replaced with older version.

    I just got some kinda idea for Residence Claiming

    (..Example Make a /res claim (Res-Name)..)
    So You Just Can Claim More Land From 1 Residence Land Without
    Your Residence Land Being A Square (Just Imagine Something Like Faction)
    So You Can Claim From Bedrock/Sky As A Residence Land

    Ideas For The Commands:
    /res AutoClaim (Res-Name)
    /res Claim (Res-Name) << Not To Take Over Other Residence Land Just Expanding

    And Something for Permision Like This


    Hope You Will Add This To The Residence Plugin :p
    If You Do Thnx :p

    Ohya I Almost Forgot for people who may not like it
    becuz they may want a public mine in there Residence zone
    Or Something Else So You Just Can Make (Subzones)
    So You Know It

    Srry but i got a another idea For Residence Like War?
    so you can make War Between 2 Differents Residence Land
    So Pvp Will Be Auto-Turned On In Those 2 Residence Land it Only The Land Itself Can War, Subzones R Safe
    And You Cud Put A Config with (build auto-turning on/off) when somebody making war with a other res land
    And There Will Come A Message 2 When You Do /res war (Res-Name)
    So Hope you Will Do Something With Those Idea's

    And Those Idea's R Not Offical My Idea's Just Idea's I Took From Fac(War = Just Same As /f Enemy\ Only Alot More Better For Rp Servers Example).
    EDIT: You Can Make A /res join (Res-Name), /res open (Res-Name) , /res invite (Res-Name) So Only People Who R In The Residence Who R At War Cud Do The Pvp/Build, So The /res join , /res open, /res invite cud be in Config And Permission So People Who Dont Like It Just Cud Turn Of This Command?? Or Something Like That :p.
    And Make sure (members are not allowed to Build Who R in the Residence) Only If They Buy A Subzone Or Get The Permission Of the Residence Owner

    Help me please!
    When I am default player in my server, I select the two ponints with wooden axe, then use /res create house then /res set house build false. It is OK. Other players did not build my house, but then I can't build my hous too. So I have to use /res removes house then /res confirm so, is there a simpler way?

    Thx Pankix

    Hey, I've set it so I'm the only 1 that can use Residence. I used /resadmin to create it, and it somehow doesn't work. People can still place/destroy things in my Residence. No errors what so ever, it just doesn't work. I've re-installed, tryed setting it in chat, tryed setting it in config file, nothing works. Please help :/
