SkyClaims - A SkyBlock Plugin designed for GriefPrevention

SkyClaims - This project is now listed on Ore. Please use the Ore listing to view the latest information and download builds.


SkyClaims is a plugin for SkyBlock servers that run GriefPrevention for protection.
Instead of reinventing the wheel and adding custom protection for islands, SkyClaims will implement claims from one of Sponge’s most powerful plugins, GriefPrevention!
With this design, nearly every GriefPrevention feature will be available to players for managing their islands.

This plugin is in Beta. Live support is available for the latest builds through Discord!


  • Complete control of command usage with granular permissions (ie specific biomes for setbiome)
  • Automatic creation of islands and their encompassing claim
  • Support multiple island designs via Sponge schematics
  • Expanding islands using claim blocks or other resource (econ)
  • Isolation of islands to their own Minecraft region file
  • Allow spawn/tp on your island at a configurable location
  • Use GriefPrevention trust commands to work in teams
  • Change the biome of a block, chunk or entire island
  • Limit entity spawning per island
  • Automatic removal of inactive islands
  • (Planned) Configurable island layouts (linear & spiral planned)
  • (Planned) Add an island messaging channel so you can chat within your island

Does this work if you don’t want to run GriefPrevention?

Considering the description specifically says its an addon… no.

The first release will not. I have plans to make both GriefPrevention and WorlEdit optional at the cost of some functionality but it’s not a priority at this time.

What’s your function to paste schematics? I’m using Sponge’s schematic API and my islands aren’t pasting in the location I tell it to.

The schematic code isn’t tested/complete. Was going to focus on that tonight. Are you saying sponge has its own schematic api? Because the way I saw you had to set block was not cool lol.

Check out this CookBook on the API

Thank you for sharing this, it will help me tremendously! I’d much rather not have WorldEdit as a dependency.

Using grief prevention (or fox guard for a better manner) isn’t a bad idea. If you can save island positions well so the positions don’t get all jumbled up, they’d be a great way to protect islands!
This is something the plugin USkyBlock does on spigot API.

Mine is like ASkyBlock where it has its own protection system. I’m glad both of us will be able to put out different options for SkyBlock :slight_smile:

GP is very good. You can simply create/update claims from external plugin.

Example from my SkyResources Bridge (WIP) plugin:

	private PluginManager pluginManager = Sponge.getPluginManager();
	private PluginContainer gpPlugin = pluginManager.getPlugin("griefprevention").get();
	private GriefPrevention pluginInstance = (GriefPrevention) gpPlugin.getInstance().get();

	public void onIslandCreate (IslandCreateEvent event) {
		Player player = Sponge.getServer().getPlayer(event.getPlayerUUID()).get();"Player " + player.getName() + " created island at " + (event.getIslandPosition().getX())*IslandDistance + " " + (event.getIslandPosition().getY())*IslandDistance );
	    World world = Sponge.getServer().getWorld("world").orElse(null);
        CreateClaimResult result = pluginInstance.dataStore.createClaim(
                UUID.randomUUID(), null, Claim.Type.BASIC, false, player);  
	public void onIslandInvite(IslandInviteEvent event) {
		Player player = Sponge.getServer().getPlayer(event.getPlayerUUID()).get();"Player " + player.getName() + " has invited to island at " + (event.getIslandPosition().getX())*IslandDistance + " " + (event.getIslandPosition().getY())*IslandDistance );
	    World world = Sponge.getServer().getWorld("world").orElse(null);
	    Location island = new Location(world, (event.getIslandPosition().getX())*IslandDistance, 128, (event.getIslandPosition().getY())*IslandDistance);
		Claim claim = pluginInstance.dataStore.getClaimAt(island, false, null);

How on earth do I beat SkyFactory 3’s release when I’m waiting for the next GriefPrevention build :’(
I don’t think it’s possible at this rate…

Feel free to join our new Discord Server for support and alpha builds!

The beta versions of SkyClaims are coming along quite nicely. I will be adding the project to Ore soon! If you’re still looking for a SkyBlock plugin, look no futher :slight_smile:.

I need economy support for island create.

You can only make one island per player atm so this really doesn’t make sense to me as you can’t really play without an island and therefore likely cannot gain currency in order to “buy” an island. You’re going to need to explain your intentions further.

Even the, Economy support is a low priority right now as a built-in team system is the biggest priority for the next SkyClaims version.
