    • Teams of two players may combine plots, but it will count as one build.
    • Teams will receive one prize to share, delivered to the individual who signed up on the form.


As part of the event, everyone will have access to WorldEdit (within their claimed plot) and the ability to edit the flags of your PlotSquared plot.

Claiming a plotโ€‹

If you're participating on your own, you can use /plot auto to claim a plot. This will claim and teleport you to an unclaimed plot where you can start building.

If you're participating as part of a team, one member should run the /plot auto command, and then the other can teleport to either the player or the plot using the following commands.

  • /tpa <player 1>
  • /plot visit <player 1>

Once there, the second member of the team can claim an adjacent plot and the first member can run /plot trust <player 2>, which will allow the second member of the team to run the merge command, /plot merge, while looking in the direction of the first player's plot and standing in the second players plot. After the second member of the team has run /plot merge while looking at the first member's plot, the first member will get a message confirming that the second member wants to merge plots. They need run /plot confirm within 30 seconds in order to confirm that they agree to the merge.
This should merge the two plots into one larger plot without an intervening road where both members of the team can build.


You can only trust one other player and every player is limited to claiming only one plot. Merged plots are considered one build and the participants are considered a team.

Plot flagsโ€‹

Plot squared provides a number of "flags" that allow you to modify the behaviour of your plot. Things like weather, time, ambient music, ect. You can use these to your advantage when designing your build and can find information about, and a list of, the flags you can use here.


You have full access to the WorldEdit toolbox while in your plot, you can use this to make your builds faster, grander, or more detailed by utilizing the commands provided. WorldEdit provides a great wiki about it's usage and a nice quickstart guide.
