    Plugin category: mech/admin

    Suggested name: signplot

    What I want: Sign based residence application.
    Place sign on workbench, cuboid around is protected.
    Size is configurable via text on sign, up to %max%.
    %max% is whatever the chunk loading limitations are.
    I assume this would only work up to ~80 meters, as the chunk would need to be loaded/read to be effective.
    No need for DB ; No need for commands (for users).
    Simple text formatting on signs.
    %username% (auto-filled)
    %rad% (cuboid at rad of 20(width) (40m), default to (config.yml) if empty/lacks permission )
    Then no one else would be able to build in that area.
    It would be easy to hide (under a house? wherever).
    Notify users when an area is entered/exited (based on permissions).
    Notify if users attempt to claim a plot too close to another plot, as it would cause conflicts.

    Basically another residence/towny/worldguard plugin, without the need for databases/admin attention/commands.
    Adding additional users within a plot, add a sign with users, EG:
    #This cannot be larger than (unknown) due to chunk loading limitations.
     default.plot.radius (width): '%rad% (int)'
    #max and default plot height is 128, and will cover from bottom to top of map
    plot.height : '128' (int)
    #This is the message that will alert the user upon entering someone a plot they don't own.
     message.not.owner: 'You are now entering %username%''s plot. You %buildpermission% build here!' (string)
    message.owner: 'You have entered a plot you own.'
    Ideas for commands:
    /sp (or signplot) reload (default op) reload config.yml
    /sp (or signplot) coords (or 'xy' or 'where' or 'location')

    Ideas for permissions:
    signplot.announce : announce to a user when entering someone's plot (default all).
    signplot.create : create a sign plot, cannot overwrite other's plots (default all).
    signplot.create.others : create a sign plot for others, cannot overwrite other's plots. (default op)
    signplot.destroy : removal of others signs. (default op)
    signplot.add : add users to the plot (eg, signplotmore above)
    signplot.add.others : add signplotmore signs to others plot (default op)
    signplot.override.rad override rad set in config.yml (default op)
    signplot.reload: use the /sp reload command
    signplot.locate: provide coords for signplot workbench within the currently selected plot so an admin can find it (default op)
    signplot.ignore: ignore build restrictions (default op)

    Similar plugin requests: None. Basically it is a longer range lockette or deadbolt.. Requires little to no config and no remembering of commands for users. Perhaps right-clicking on a workbench with a sign in hand would auto-claim (as deadbolt/lockette does with chests). Right-clicking a worldbench with a sign in hand in a plot that is already claimed would notify the user to use the signplotmore sign, should they already own the plot.

    Note: There is no need to protect chests/furnace or their contents as deadbolt/lockette do this just fine. Just stop people from building/breaking blocks in the area. I'm not wanting to prevent redstone usage (eg: levers, buttons, panels), but it could be a config option as others may.

    Idea: do not prevent players from expanding their plot with more workbenches/signs, providing it will not expand in to another users plot.

    Edit: formatting, better explanation.

    This would be absolutely amazing. I strive to find plugins where there are no commands for the users to remember. Just simple sign syntax is all.

    Exited to see this go somewhere. Thread watched.

    Also watching this.

    May attempt to do this myself, but my Java skills are limited.

    If no one with better skills comes along, I'll see what I can do with this, doesn't appear to be that hard of a project.

    Anyone else interested in this?

    How exactly would you put a sign on a workbench? =P

    The problem with that would be you couldn't show the GUI.

    (I've never used that plugin but I'm pretty sure the sign GUI is rendered client-side.)

    Correct. There is no event, because bukkit has no packet it can send that triggers the sign gui. Spout gets around this by creating its own custom packet. With vanilla minecraft/bukkit however, you cant place a sign and have it pop the gui.

    As for the original post, precious stones does this sort of functionality. Placing any number of blocks has different effects. Diamond blocks are a 64x64x64 area i believe of protection.

    I get around this somewhat, by using pre-placed text. it automatically places the sign on right click, adds the first 2 lines. Anything beyond that, say extra users, needs to be done with commands.

    I still like the sign idea, because precious stones is a bit annoying with the toggle.

    You should just have a different code for different blocks that you could put, like [protect] [5] would protect an area of 5 of placed on a sign on a block.
