Looking for a plugin that edits the world through the console

    Hi. I'm just starting out on my own server, and I need a way to automate some key actions in the game. It's is a PvP minigame server, and I need a way to remove blocks and revert either the entire map or parts of it to a backup.

    I'm thinking of buying a dedicated server, so I will need a way to automate the placing/removing/restoration of blocks. though the console.

    I am currently using WorldEdit and WorldGuard to do this, but I have to be in-game and they cannot be used from the console.

    Is there a plugin that can do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    I suppose this is possible, but the co-ords would have to be the exact same each match.

    Edit: Wait, are you wanting your map to be refreshed to the same starting one each time?

    I want the map to be reset using a backup after the game is over without shutting down the server so that the same players can play another round. I thought about doing this using WorldEdit and WorldGuard, but they cannot be used in this way without being ingame.

    The server will have to be reset, but it will be turned back on automatically.

    Importing a world from a backup needs a shutdown of the server.
    But it's possible also if the World is loaded in files blocks by blocks by the plugin and modified then.
    But it means a HUGE lag for some minutes.
    And I think a shutdown is better and less annoying

    Okay. I'm currently doing it manually while ingame by selecting regions and reverting them using WorldGuard's snapshot feature, and it doesn't require a restart. But if it has to restart in order to be automated, I can live with it.

    Changing chunks with WG is easy.
    Changing all chunks in a world (1000+ for a little world) will takes more time and will be more alggy than a restart

    The server doesnt need to shut down there just needs to be no one in that particular world which is being reset, i think multiverse adventures may be the plugin u are looking for. Works well for me. It creates a back up version of the world prior to it being used then when no players are in the world it will restore the entire world in about 5 seconds with no lag. It had caused my server to crash once or twice but since updating craftbukkit a week ago i have had no probs so make sure ur running the latest reccomended build. Getting support for it tho is next to impossible.

    You might consider disabling the save function and restarting the server after each map. There are plugins that automate restarts, so you may want to look into a suitable one

    This looks good, I'll try this out.
    Now I just need a voting system that starts the game when everyone is ready, and I should be good to go.
