Land Protection & Claim

Land Protection & Claim

We want you to protect yourselves against griefers and thieves, so here are a few ways to do just that! 


To claim land on Ghoulcraft, simply right-click the ground with a golden shovel! A Diamond Block will appear where you clicked. Go to the OPPOSITE corner of where you want to claim, and right-click again! The corner blocks will turn into gold & Glowstone if you’ve done it correctly. This is now your protected area! Alternatively, you can also place down a chest to begin a protection zone. Just right-click the corners with your shovel & expand it as you see fit! 

You can earn claim blocks by being online, or by buying them from the Donor Shop [Here]

Some Helpful Commands for Land-Claiming:

  • /AbandonClaim — This deletes the claim you’re standing in. 
  • /AbandonALLclaims — This deletes EVERY claim you own, in case you need to start over! Be VERY careful using this one, as we cannot give you your claims back! 
  • /ClaimExplosions — If you’d like to use TNT in your claim to demolish something, turn this on first!
  • /Trust — Gives another player permission to build/destroy in your claim. (You will need to allow them access to your chests with LWC commands below!)
  • /Untrust — Removes the above permission. 
  • /Untrust All — Removes ALL permissions for your claim.
  • /AccessTrust — Gives permission for a player to use buttons/levers/beds but NOT your chests!
  • /ContainerTrust — Gives player permission to use ALL interactive objects in your claim. 
  • /TrustList — Lists the permissions for the claim you’re standing inside. 
  • /BuyClaimBlocks — Converts your server money into claim blocks
  • /SellClaimBlocks — Convers your saved up claim blocks into server money!
  • /ClaimsList — Lists all of your claims & coordinates for them (helpful in case you lose your base!)
  • /Trapped — If you get stuck in someone’s claim & can’t get out (because of locked doors/etc) this should help!

LWC = Locked With Care

LWC allows you to punch a container/door/lever/etc (anything you can interact with) and protect it so only you, and those you specify, can interact with it.. You can even set super-secret passwords! Chests are automatically locked when you place them down.


  • /cpublic — Toggle, and punch a chest. Makes it public/unclaimed & cannot be protected.
  • /cpassword [password] — Creates a password-protected chest. Example: “/cpassword fluffernutter”. Password will be entered in chat when prompted by trying to interact with the object.
  • /cunlock [password] — Type this, then punch the object to unlock a password-protected item.
  • /cprivate [users] — Makes the item now private to only the owner & whoever they specify in users. (Example: /cprivate YouthInRevolt)
  • /cremove — removes protections
  • /cpersist — Keeps the toggle on, so you can punch multiple things. 
  • /cmodify [users] — allows this person to interact with your protected item. Adding a “-” in front of the name, removes them from the list. 
  • /cinfo — view information about the protected object

✨ Land Claim Flags ✨

You can now use “flags” in your protected areas! After protecting your area with a golden shovel, use the following commands to customize your area & give yourself further protections! 

Please keep in mind: Staff members can bypass ALL protections, in order to help you and better protect the server. (Blocking a staff member from entering your claim is against the rules, and will result in a ban.)

“/SetClaimFlag (Flag)”
