    Nope, it isn't. Should it be? And how would I go abouts doing that?
  3. Offline


    Yes it should be, and in the next version will automatically do it for you when you create a zone. but for now.

    /zone edit City
    /zone parent add [ParentZoneTag]
    /zone save

    That should do it for you.

    Otherwise you can edit your parent zone .yml file and add City as a child manually as well.

    The mobs still aren't spawning. I have played with the configs and even reinstalled the whole plugin including the zones. I found that by removing the EpicZones_0_22_1.jar mobs WILL spawn, but when I put the plugin back no mobs spawn. Are there any specific things I have to do to make mobs spawn?(I have it set in the server properties as true)

    What do your zone config files look like?

    Here is one of them:

    - baitshop
    - freeshop

    exittext: ''

    Looks ok, try changing your mobs flag from

    mobs: []


    - ALL

    See if that fixes your issue.

    Nope it didn't. I forgot to mention that I tried that.(I also just retried it)

    This is funky.
    I'll have to look into it tonight.

    Hey I was having the same issue as well in that mobs wouldn't spawn (using EpicZones_0_22_1) so on a hunch I decided to tell each mob individually that it could spawn:

    - squid
    - chicken
    - cow
    - sheep
    - pig
    - wolf
    - creeper
    - zombie
    - ghast
    - giant
    - skeleton
    - slime
    - spider

    I just copied and pasted this into each of my worlds. I was worried that this might allow ghasts to spawn in normal worlds but that doesn't seem to be the case. I think the problem is that you defined your "all" and "none" flags incorrectly.

    On a side note, I love your plugin and we've been using it pretty much forever. Thank you.

    I tried this plugin for the first time today. I have found that the in-game help is wrong, and the wiki is wrong. The plugin itself caused my server log to explode up to 500 megabytes in about 30 minutes.
    Here's where the log started blowing up.

    Perhaps you could change the way that you're naming things at the top of the page...
    Instead of "Current Version," call it, "test version" and put a disclaimer that states, "may have undocumented features."
    For, "Previous Version," instead, pick a previous version that you consider to be a fully documented/stable build and call it "Recommended Version."
    The plugin seems like a very good plugin. I'll check back in a few days to see if the new version is working/documented.

    Beat me to it!

    Indeed tried this in desperation earlier and it works!

    Do not use - all or - none for now....

    Thanks for trying the plugin.

    As the version indicates, this has not hit stable release yet (1.0) I've never said it was stable or even implied it. I don't have the time to fully test it every time I add a feature, to make sure its stable. So until features stop being added it will stay in a beta version.

    That said, Many other server admin's are using the plugin just fine and have been for months. This is the first time I've seen the error you are submitting. So there may be an issue with how zones are created from scratch, being as this is a fresh install. I'm more than happy to test that out.

    If you really want the plugin to get better, submit an issue ticket with the required config files, so I can properly investigate the issue you are having. Rather than trying to dictate how I run my plugin.

    ;) Only by minutes it seems.

    I personally think this is a pretty stable plugin. Sure it's got a few bugs, but what do you want when people are being asked to develop for in-dev software? And if the bugs consist of having to replace "all" with the name of every mob, then this plugin is by far more stable than the majority of others out there.

    Well put!

    Excellent plugin essential to my server.

    Can this be a complete substitute for World Guard?

    Also, it's HeroChat Integrated Can you set each zone for a specific channel only?

    I.E. Town's Only chat, Rest Local

    <Tag me back if you can reply, thanks>
  17. Offline


    Yes, you just have to make sure to config your channels in herochat so that it works out that way. I used to do this on my server.

    There are several features that World Guard has, that EZ does not. It all depends on what you are using World Guard for.

    I can confirm that this is indeed working for mob spawns. Thanks for the temporary fix. :)

    Basically town protections, and to prevent non-town users to access chest's, doors, etc. , unless they are a citizen of a plot, or the town.

    I love the integration HC though.

    Other than that Creeper Explosions/Tnt is on, Only thing is fire prevention / flint/steel.

    If you are only using WG for fire suppression, then yes EZ will do that as well.

    EZ doesn't prohibit the use of chests in a zone, you will still need to use a chest locking plugin (I recommend LWC) for that.
  21. Offline


    Alright, Maybe I'll give her a go on my lan sided to see how it runs.

    Only thing is I don't want everyone using LWC, only plot sided :)
    Problem with WG is it has blocks wher if you place, they vanish, and SK said he can't fix it. (Cant place blocks on it, but can above and below it. dam voids)


    Weird, when I type /zone in-game doesn't work, or show me any help. but the other commands seem to work for now

    I do /zone edit

    and /zone edit Deralia

    Than I do /zone enter msg
    /zone enter Deralia <msg>

    Nothing, just says "say zone for help zone list, zone info"

    Any suggestions

    with v020 everythink except perms was ok but
    in v021 it was really strange because he forgot all permissions and so on

    i just try how things in v0221 changed because sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't
    no errors no warnings just idle

    EDIT: Very nice plugin, no problems anymore, (server in offlinemode ignores zonescompletly)

    How do I either disable the global zone or make it such that anyone can build, destroy, or enter the map unless another zone is declared?

    Ahh, thanks a lot. One last question.. does it always create a zone from bedrock to sky-top or can you limit the height to a specific area so I can have a zone under another zone? Thanks!
  28. Offline


    • Version 0.23
      • Improved support for isOp and not having permissions.
      • When saving a zone, it will automatically child to the zone you are editing from.
      • Implemented language files, to allow for translation to other languages.
      • You can now color code your zone messages
    Color Key:
    &0 BLACK
    &1 DARK_BLUE
    &3 DARK_AQUA
    &4 DARK_RED
    &6 GOLD
    &7 GRAY
    &8 DARK_GRAY
    &9 BLUE
    &A GREEN
    &B AQUA
    &C RED
    &F WHITE

    update your config with this line:
    globalZoneDefaultAllow: true

    Let me know what you find out.

    You can edit the Floor and Ceiling of a zone to have it not reach from sky to bedrock.

    How to I change what mobs are allowed to spawn? I looked in the wiki and saw the syntax to change the mobs is "/zone flag mobs [value] [value] [value]." I am unsure of what goes in the three value positions. What I would like is for no mobs to spawn with in a said zone.

    request: lets make permissions from other plugins settable into zones. so only players in zone "postal office" can use "/mail read" in example. that would be awesome, area related commands.
  31. Offline


    I've often thought about this, but would it be possible? Can other plugins (like EZ) change permissions in EssentialsGroupManager/Permissions on the fly? If possible, I'd make this compatible with the temporary permissions EssentialsGroupManager offers - I don't want zone-based permissions to be saved to my config files, and it seems like a perfect use of this temporary permissions feature.
