protector_pvp = true
- true or false this setting disabled pvp inside of protected areas for all players apart from those listed on the protector node.
protector_night_pvp = false
- when true this setting enables pvp at night time only, even inside protected areas, requires protector_pvp to be active to work.
protector_spawn = 10
- Sets an area 10 nodes around static spawnpoint that is protected.
protector_hurt = 2
- When set to above 0, players digging in protected areas will be hurt by 2 health points (or whichever number it's set to)
protector_flip = true
- When true players who dig inside a protected area will flipped around to stop them using lag to grief into someone else's build
- Number of seconds the protection field is visible, defaults to 5 seconds.
Can be crafted with a protector surrounded by steel ingots and is used to place new protectors at a set distance of protector.radius in all directions including up and down simply by looking in a direction.
Use by standing near an existing protector, looking in a direction and using as a tool, hold sneak/shift to place new protector containing member list from inside nearest one.
