Land Claims

Property: things which belong to a person.

For Liberty MineCraft, property is defined using computer code. Everything you claim is your property. Nothing you claim can be used without your permission. Everything on your person and in your enderchest also belongs to you, but this guide will focus on land claims.

Land claims protect the land, and everything on it. All buildings, chests, trees, animals, crops, or blocks within your claim are your property. The contents of all chests on your claim are also your property. Your land claim extends down 5 blocks beneath the lowest block you’ve placed. Your land claim extends up to the build limit.

Dropped items are not protected.

Unused land claims are temporary. Temporary land claims last 28 days. Place a block on an existing temporary claim to make it permanent.

Permanent land claims do not expire on their own. If the owner of a claim has accrued 50,000 claim blocks, their claims do not expire. Otherwise, land claims will expire after 60 days of inactivity. Most players will be subject to this second option.

 

How To See Land Claims: The quickest way to see Land Claims is by using a stick.

  1. Using a stick to see Land Claims: To see if a block is claimed, hold a stick and right click a block. Shift-click displays local claims.

How To Claim Land: To start, you have two options for making your first land claim.

  1. Claiming land with your first chest. Placing your first chest will claim a 9×9 area around that chest. This creates a temporary claim. Building on this claim will make it a Permanent claim.

    .
  2. Claiming land with a Claim Tool (Golden Axe): Gold axes are made with two sticks and 3 gold ingots.

    .
    Selecting your Gold Axe displays the number of Claim Blocks you have.

    .
    Right Click a block to set the corner of your land claim.

    .Right Click a second block to set a Land Claim.

Move a Land Claim: Claims can be made larger and smaller by selecting and then moving a corner.

  1. With a Golden Axe, Select the corner of your claim by right clicking it twice (at least once). If you struggle to find the corner try using a stick.

    .
  2. With a Golden Axe, Right Click the new corner to resize your claim.


Land Claim Commands:
Our land claim plugin comes with many useful commands to help you manage your property.

  • Buy Claim Blocks: /buyclaim <number>
  • Sell Claim Blocks: /sellclaim <number>
  • Display Your Claims: /claimlist will display your land claims and claimblocks.
  • Deleting A Land Claim: /abandonedclaim while standing inside your claim to remove it entirely.
  • Revoke Permissions: to remove any permissions you have given to a player use the command /untrust player_name
  • Grant Full Permission: /trust player_name grants full permissions. As an example, /trust nullcase will grant me full access to your claim and the contents of chests. This includes breaking all blocks. Using /trust all instead would provide this same access to everyone. Players you trust on your claim are given permission by you to do whatever they want on your claim. Trusted players cannot resize or remove your claim.
  • Grant Door & Button Permissions: /accesstrust player_name to give that player the ability to use buttons, levers and open gates and doors (including trapdoors) on your claim. A player is free to use that permission however they wish.
  • Grant Chest Access & Doors: /containertrust player_name gives permission to chests and buttons/doors. Players trusted in this way cannot break blocks.

These are the critical basics to get you started.
