Flags - Advanced
  • This page explains more Flags that may be used as well as some advanced Commands that pertain to the Residence flag system. It is designed to be a continuance of the Flags page, so if you haven't read that yet, please do so.


    Setting Flags When Not Physically On The Residence(top)


    If you're not standing on your Residence, but are still on the correct SMP, then you can change Residence Flags by adding an exclamation mark prefix and the Residence name or number to the set, cset, pset or cpset Commands.
    • Example: /res set !1001 move f. This would set the move flag to false on Residence number 1001.
    • Example: /res pset !aikar krysyy build t. This would give Krysyy the build flag on Aikar's Residence.

    Setting Multiples (Flags/Players)(top)


    You can set several Flags for several players at once by adding the extra names and separating them with commas (without spaces). This can be applied to several Flags, several players or a combination of players and Flags.
    • Setting a flag for 3 players at once: /res pset Aikar,Maxarias,Krysyy move false.
    • Setting 3 Flags for 1 player at once: /res pset Aikar use,container,redstone t.

    Copying Flags to Another Player(top)


    You can also copy all Flags from one player and apply them to another. This is done using pcopy:
    • /res pcopy FromPlayer ToPlayer- Copy all Flags from 'FromPlayer' and apply them to 'ToPlayer'.
      • Example: /res pcopy Aikar Krysyy. This would copy all the Flags which Aikar has and copy them to Krysyy, effectively giving him the same Flags.

    Cset and cpset: Setting from a chest GUI(top)


    Using the cset command gives players the option of setting Flags from a chest GUI instead of Commands.
    • To set permissions for everyone: /res cset [residence number]
    • To set permissions for one player: /res cpset ![residence number] [playername]
    Left click on the wool to toggle Flags. Right click on the wool to reset them to default.

    Cset is also useful in determining the current flag states, and changing large amounts of Flags quickly.

    The Admin Flag(top)


    The admin flag was designed to be used for alternate accounts of the same person. Admin includes every flag as well as the ability to delete the Residence, change the Flags, etc. It is HIGHLY discouraged for sharing with friends.

    Example: /res pset Aikar admin t - This gives Aikar complete control over the Residence.

    Warning: Staff may not be able to help if you give out admin flag. If you give out admin, you are giving that player the keys to everything you have, all at once.

    Sub Flags(top)


    Sometimes a Residence flag controls a lot of different blocks. A good example is the container flag: this doesn't only control chest access but also controls furnaces, brewing stands, hoppers, droppers, dispensers and even beacons. In those cases it is possible to give players access to a single block only, by using a sub-flag. Keep in mind that sometimes it might be easier to use Access Signs, but if you absolutely want to designate sub Flags, it is an option.

    For example: To give access to hoppers only you'd use the container:hopper sub-flag. Using sub-Flags works just like using regular Flags, the only difference is the parent flag:sub flag notation required.
