    New Towny Website!

    Taking Shades' Towny a step farther.

    A versatile, player-controlled land management plugin for use with Bukkit/Tekkit/Spigot/Libigot, offering solutions for pvp, griefing, chat, inflated economies and monsters.


    Towny includes a wide variety of features to offer instant enhancements to your traditional Minecraft server.
    • Allows players to own and manage land based on a pre-set grid layout.
      • Players join towns and purchase plots of land.
      • Players decide who can build, destroy, use "switchs" and use items on every plot they control.
      • Towns can join together into nations, further structuring a server into teams.
      • Towns grant protection from monsters, pvp, fire, explosions and greifing.
    • Wilderness Rules (Optional)
      • Area between towns is wilderness, with its own build permissions.
      • Limit players' interaction with the wild to just harvest-able blocks, keeping the wild pristine.
      • Roll-back tnt, creeper, wither explosions, dragon damage and endermen block-moving.
      • Block explosions and fire.
    • PVP Enhancements
      • Server with a strong PVP aspect will find Towny's grouping of players to be invaluable.
      • Prevent friendly-fire. (Optional)
      • Nations split players into larger teams.
      • Nations can declare other nations to be allies or enemies, further splitting players into even larger teams.
      • PVP can be turned on/off in wilderness, towns and worlds. (Optional)
    • Teleporting/Warping and Spawning (Optional)
      • Players can spawn to their town upon death.
      • Players can spawn to their town or a town that is within their nation/allied with their nation.
    • Customized modified chat. (Optional)
      • Colours, group prefixes and suffixes, nation, town, towny titles.
      • Channels for general, local, town, nation, moderator, admin and custom channels.
      • Anti-spam feature.
    • Shop plugin support. (Optional)
      • Limit shops to special Shop Plots, enhancing realism.
    • Economy plugin interaction. (Optional)
      • Supports all economy plugins.
      • Charge money for plots, towns, nations.
      • Flexible tax system.
      • Upkeep to remove money from the economy, stopping rampant inflation.
    • All Permissions Plugins supported. (Optional)
      • Perms 2/3, GroupManager, BukkitPermissions, bPermissions, PermissionsEx, etc.
    • Multiworld Support
      • Flexible settings for every world.
      • Enable/disable Towny in as many worlds as you like.

    • Essentials 2.5+ - (Towny /town spawn's obey Essentials teleport cooldown)
    • All permissions plugins are supported and provide greater customization (recomend GroupManager).

    Have problems? Got a bug? I can help you!

    First I'll need your bukkit version and towny version numbers!

    Also be prepared to use pastebin.com to share your config.yml, full server startup (found in your server.log) and relevant Permission files. Better yet, provide them up-front!

    Also try joining the #Towny IRC channel for instant-support.

    Known Issues:
    • Zilch

    Yes the problem is the nation taxes.

    My town is the only town is my nation. I'm the leader of the nation, and the mayor of the town.

    Leaders of nations own the capital city, which does not pay nation-tax. It's like how a mayor doesn't pay his town-tax.

    The banks are controlled by the same player, so it doesn't tax.

    I have all permission nodes set correctly and I have all the wild build/destroy/switch in the config set to true. But, people are still not able to build and it says the message [Towny] You don't have permission to build here.

    Nevermind, towny didn't detect my permissions, in the config it was permissions3=false, just changed it to true. Fixed.

    Wow, now I wish I didn't switch over to factions a few weeks ago. Can you make a factions to towny converter? I know it's quite the task, but It'd really be extremely awesome of you.

    Only just realised there was a new thread! Man I'm a n00b!

    Here's what I just posted on the old thread...

    "I've forked and submitted a pull request with the ability to disable the ability to set a nation as 'Neutral' for those who get annoyed when they want to attack and their opponent hides behind neutrality.

    However... I've not been able to test my changes due to issues with recompiling. I'm quite new to java (I learnt it yesterday!). The edit should be sound but I simply don't know how to re-compile it to test it! :( N00b fail!"

    Is there any chance of creating a new permission level for /town set perm open [on/off]

    This could be used to split Wooden Doors and Hatches (and maybe chests) which I do not feel classify as 'Switched' items. It would make sense for them to be separate from buttons and levers.

    I've now added my suggestion for disabling neutrality to the 0.71.4 thread too. Please review :)

    edit: I'm not sure how to get it to set the default to true... maybe a more experienced coder can have a look at that?

    Word to the wise. If you had custom town levels this overwrote them with the HUGE maxes of the default config on first run. Big problem.

    EDIT: Found the problem. I guess the town and nation levels in the config do nothing, as towny still generates and uses the csv files. Put those back in place and all seems well...

    Good idea, not all servers will want it, but I can see the use of it. There's already talk about changing Towny War, or making it more versatile. Some admins find it too brutal, other want more brutality. Elgarl will see your suggestion.
    Croxis began a fork, which was created like ours, from Fuzze's 0.68 but he gave up on it.

    Sorry about your custom .csv's being overwritten. It shouldn't be an issue for much longer as we are doing away with the .csv's and moving that information into the config.yml. As for supporting more of essentials, that's up to Elgarl and whether he can do it or has the time.
    Can you drop into IRC or PM me your server details? I'd like to know how many players you have on an average peak time, whether you upgraded or did a fresh install, etc.

    Will Towny ever support cuboid selections? That's just about the only thing stopping me from using it.

    Probably not, there are other plugins that can help you. Towny's grid system is really great anyways.

    Yeah, the grid system works, but it makes every town pretty much the same. All the houses are pretty much the same size, you never can put a house on top of another house and you can't make any combining house shapes. I really like the system that Towny has, but I just can't use it without more shape customization, so I do everything with WorldGuard.

    I'm not sure about freestyle plots... i do like the idea of claiming a whole chunk.

    I WOULD like to see the ability for an admin to claim wilderness chunks for an NPC town without having to join the town (i.e. if they are already a member of a town) This way they could build a town at spawn without damaging the balance of the game.

    In Towny Advanced, there's much better support for the " /ta set mayor [town] npc " command. Using this, an admin can set aside his town, and start a new town, which when ready can have an 'npc' (not an actual NPC, but pretent resident/mayor) become mayor using the same command, so the admin can resume controlling his primary town.

    With 1.8's release and NPC villages, who knows what might become possible.

    I've seen some pretty distinct towns on my server alone. Two town-styles pop-up, the first is sort of like you describe, similar sized houses and every resident having their own plots. The second happens when a mayor doesn't use personal plots (usually these towns are made up of close friends,) and they just build where they please within the town limits. The second type produces some pretty cool towns.

    Agreed... we have both types on our server too. Plus we have a town where the mayor zones blocks of 3 and 4 plots together to make huge properties and some great shaped, interlinking, buildings

    Yeah, I want to have the second type be possible without having anyone worry about trusting their neighbors.

    In my town I give residents 1 townblock to start with. When they're done mining it and building on it, I give them a 2x2 section next. Lots of players don't finish/never return and giving them lots of land right away, just means more clean up later.

    Part of what makes Towny great is how hands-off it is for admins.

    Adding cuboid support while retaining a hands-off approach would mean giving mayors rights to use the cuboid selecting tool, and you can guess how that might turn out.
