Creating a Residence

Here you will learn how to select, determine cost, create, and expand a residence.

Define Residence

To define a residence, you will select the opposite-most corners of a cuboid of space, [like so].

Using a Stick, left click one corner, and right click the opposite. It doesn't matter which you left click and which you right click as long as both actions end up being done.

Determine Residence Cost

Once your residence area is defined, you will likely want to know how much it will cost to create it. To do this, run the following command.

/res select cost

Output will look similar to this:

Selection total size: 1430
Land cost: 29
XSize: 11
YSize: 10
ZSize: 13

Create Residence

Command Example
/res create <resName> /res create test

Running this command will result in output similar to this:

Charged 29 to your Vault account.
Residence Area created, ID main
You have created residence test!

Expand Residence Size

To expand a residence you must select the current residence's physical area, tell it how to expand, and then commit the changes by replacing the old area dimensions with the new ones.
Note: Expanding a residence WILL cost you additional money. The same per-block cost applies.

1. Select the residence's physical area:

Command Example
/res select residence <resName> <areaName> /res select residence test main

"main" is a residence's default areaName, unless you have changed it.

2. Expand the residence.

You can either expand the residence from bedrock to sky, which is really expensive, or just expand it a certain amount of blocks in the direction you're looking.

Command Example
/res select expand ## /res select expand 50

Additionally, you may elect to expand the residence from bedrock to sky

Command Description
/res select vert Expands the selected area from bedrock to sky. WARNING: Damn pricey.

3. Commit changes to residence

Now you can replace the old residence's dimensions with the new one's you've selected:

Command Description
/res select vert /res area replace test main

Section Command Reference

Command Description
/res create <resName> Create a residence using the currently selected blocks
/res select cost Display the cost of the current selected blocks
/res select residence <resName> <areaName> Select main physical area of the residence
/res select expand ## Expand the residence in the direction you are looking
/res select vert Expand the selected area from bedrock to sky. THIS SHIT IS EXPENSIVE.
/res area replace <resName> <areaName> Complete the expansion of the residence

Residence Teleports

A great benefit of having residences (and friends with them!) is the ability to quickly teleport around.

Teleporting to a Residence

To teleport to a residence we will use the tp flag.

Command Example
/res tp <resName> /res tp test

Residence Teleport Location

By default the /res tp command takes you "near" the specified residence. This could be in a lake nearby, under the house, or, if you're in the nether, on TOP of the bedrock on the top of the nether.
This can lead to frustrating and inconvenient experiences.

To prevent this, we need to do a tpset inside the residence while standing on the spot you want people to teleport into.

Command Description
/res tpset OR /res tpset <residenceName> Set teleport location for the residence you're standing in to current location
/res tpset <residenceName.subZone> Set teleport location for a subzone in a residence to current location

Note: It is worth noting that residence will behave somewhat abnormally if the player is in confined locations when /tpset is run. If you are standing on a half-slab and there isn't much room above you, you may end up teleporting "near" that location again. It's best to be standing on a flat block.

Stuck in the Ground!

Sometimes after teleporting to a residence, you may find yourself stuck in a floor, refrigerator, or, awkwardly, someone's bed.

We can fix that, too!

/res unstuck

Please note that this will only work if you're currently IN a residence. Won't help if you end up on top of The Nether.

Residence Info

Command Example
/res list Check and see which residences you own
/res list # List residences by page number (if you have more than one page of listings
/res info Check permissions/details of the residence you are currently in
/res info <resName> Check permissions/details of the specified residence

Note: You may also whack the ground within a residence with a bit of string like a damn barbarian.

Permission Flags

One of the biggest advantages to having a residence is the ability to set granular permissions for the area itself, and for individual players. How is this done?

Set permissions for the entire residence

Flags set for the residence are in effect for every player that enters into it, including the owner. These residence-wide flags can be overridden using player-set flags, which we will get into later.

Please Note: Residence names are always case sensitive.

Command Example
/res set <resName> <flag> <true/false> /res set test tp false

This will prevent all players (including the owner/creator) from using "/res tp" to teleport to the residence.

Set permissions for individual players

So, if you followed the exmaple above, then you've disabled the ability for anyone to tp to your residence. So, how do you enable teleporting there for yourself?
We use the pset condition!

Command Example
/res pset <resName> <playerName> <flag> <true/false> /res pset test immaridel tp true

Now Immaridel can tp to that residence, but nobody else can!

Residence Flags

For flag values, usually true allows the action, and false denys the action.

Flag Description

Copying Residence Permissions

Once you have a residence set with the permissions you like, it can be a pain to have to type all of those flags, messages, and material blacklists you have set into a new residence.
Fortunately the plugin author gave us the mirror command to prevent any residence-stress-induced homicides from occuring.

Command Example
/res mirror <sourceResName> <destinationResName> /res mirrior test test2

Now I can go back to drinking Scotch while I watch this wheat grow.


Subzones are used for creating a small area within an existing residence that may have a different permission, members, and even it's own TP location.

The corners of the desired cube of space within the residence must be selected with a stick just like the original residence was, [like this]

Create Subzone

Command Example
/res subzone <resName> <subzoneName> /res subzone test icles

You now have a subzone!

Subzones and Flags

To apply permissions to the new subzone, you will use the same syntax as previous set and pset commands, but now you will reference the residence a little differently.

Command Example
/res subzone <resName.subzoneName> <flag> <true/false> /res subzone test.icles tp true

Now, to actually teleport to that subzone:

/res tp test.icles

Residence Market

Since you know how to work with subzones now, you can give your friends or even strangers room in your place without having to worry about them having access to your main residence area. Why stop there, though? Maybe you'd like to go into the real estate business and start selling apartments, houses, or swaths of land for people to dwell in?

I'd like to introduce you to the Market system.

Using the syntax I'll give below, you can sell, buy, show info for, and stop selling a residence, or subzone of a residence!

Flag Description Syntax
info Get economy info on residence /res market info <resName>
list Lists rentable and for sale residences. /res market list
sell Sell a residence /res market sell <resName // resName.subzoneName> <amount>
buy Buy a residence /res market buy <resName // resName.subzoneName>
unsell Stops selling a residence /res market unsell <resName // resName.subzoneName>

Additional Functionality

There are quite a few commands not listed in this guide, not all will be listed here. Nevertheless, this section will cover a few sets of commands not handled before. A side note: Some of these commands can, under certain conditions, be used without the residence name to apply to the zone you are currently located in. Others, however, cannot. Because of this, only the full versions are provided here.

Physical Areas and Subzones

Command Description
/res area list <resName> Short list of the main areas of a residence. There is usually only 1.
/res area listall <resName> A more detailed list of the main areas of a residence. This list includes corner doordinates and total block size of the area.
/res sublist <resName> List of all subzones in a main residence area.

All of these commands can be run against subzones of a residence, such as test.icles above.

Rename or Delete

You may rename or delete any or all parts of a residence.

Command Description
/res rename <resName> <newResName> Renames an existing residence.
/res renamearea <resName> <areaName> <newAreaName> Rename the physical area of a residence. Default name is "main". There is no real point to this, aside from customization.
/res area remove <resName> <areaName> Removes area from the residence.
/res remove <resName> Delete the residence.
/res remove <resName.subzoneName> Delete the specified subzone.

There is NO refund when you delete a residence.

Enter and Leave Messages

These are the messages you see when entering and exiting a residence area.

Command Description
/res message <resName> <enter/leave> <message text> Sets the designated message type and text for the specified residence.
/res message <enter/leave> <message text> Sets the message text for the residence or subzone you are currently in.
/res message <resName> remove <enter/leave> Removes the enter/leave text for the specified residence.
/res message remove [enter/leave] Removes the message text for the residence or subzone you are currently in.

%player, %residence, and %owner may be used in the message for additional customization.

Give Residence to Another Player

Command Description
/res give [residence] [player] Transfers ownership of the residence to the player. Player must be online.


You may prevent and/or allow certain blocks from being used in a residence by adding them to a blacklist or ignorelist.
Note: I have no messed with this functionality at all, so someone may want to correct it later.

Command Description
/res lset <ResidenceName> <blacklist/ignorelist> <material> Adds or Removes a material from the residence's blacklist or ignorelist.
/res lset <ResidenceName> info List the residence's blacklist and ignorelist.

Admin Reference

Here's a handy command list for the admins to reference later.

Command Description
/resadmin setowner <resName> <playerName> Transfer ownership of a residence to a new player. Player does not need to be online or have ever logged in
/resadmin removeall <playerName> Delete all the residences belonging to a specified player. There is no undo. Don't screw up.
