Towny Commands

From The Official Stompzcraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Towny is a plugin that allows users to create Towns. It does not require donation status to use; all that is required is the server currency, Stompz. This is our personal Stompzcraft Guide. It is easier to understand than the master list. But if you would like to see a full list of commands, it is available here!


Starting A Town

Mayors start towns using the command /town new {townname}. The townblock they are standing in will be the home block for the town, the exact spot/position will be the spawn point for the town.

More townblocks can be claimed using /town claim. These townblocks need to be directly adjacent to already claimed townblocks.

To start the town you need to have at least 5000 stompz and an appropriate location at least 16 townblocks (256 blocks) from another town.

Town Growth

There are two ways to join towns, the first is by being invited by a Mayor or a Town assistant. The second is by joining an open town.

Mayors and assistants can add players to their town with the command /town add {playername}. The resident then has the option to either /accept or /deny the invitation.

Mayors can set their towns to open using /town toggle open. A player who isn't in a town already can use the command /town join {townname} to join open towns.

When residents join towns they increase the number of townblocks accessible to the mayor for claiming.

3 24 350

As you grow, your town will earn Classifications

15-18 Large Town
19-23 City
24-28 Big City

Costs of Running a Town

Each claim you make adds 2 Stompz per day to your daily town upkeep. For example, if your town owns 50 townblocks, your daily upkeep will be 100 Stompz.

You can help manage the cost of this with your daily taxes.

Daily residential tax is for being a part of the town. You can set this with /t set taxes [amount].

If you would rather have a percent tax rate (which is risky and could potentially hurt your residents long term), then type /t toggle taxpercent.

There is also the option for a daily plot tax, which charges residents per day, for each plot they own. You can set this with /t set plottax [amount].

NOTE: Mayors and Assistants do not pay taxes.

Setting up Plots

Once you have started your town you need to start claiming land for your residents to build, and for town related needs. These cost 350 Stompz per claim and are 16x16x256 in size. They are predefined chunks and using /res toggle plotborder, you can see the borders of each of these chunks.

After you have claimed your land you can set up plots for people. Plots can be claimed by residents, and you can set prices on them. The plots can also be set as Shops, Embassies (see Nations) or Wilds. In addition, consider setting up plot permissions and taxes.

Mayors or Assistants will then stand on the plot and type /plot fs [price]. This places an individual plot up for sale.

A resident can then follow through with /plot claim. Once they type this they own the plot given they have enough money.


Permissions are set "rules" which allow or deny certain things from occurring inside your Town. There are two kinds of permissions, Toggle Perms and Set Perms.

Toggle Perms

You can toggle the following: Fire Spread, Mobs Spawning, and Explosions. The format is:

/t [toggle] [fire/mobs/explosion] [on/off]

Additional toggle permissions are [open/taxpercent/public], though these are less practical for normal users.

Set Perms

These are more specific permissions, which can enable or disable actions for entire groups of people. These deal with Residents, Allies, and Outsiders (people not in your town or nation). With these groups, you can allow or deny rights to Build, Destroy, Switch (e.g.: use levers, doors, and buttons) and use Items. To set up these permissions, the command format is:

/t set perm [resident/ally/outsider] [build/destroy/switch/item] [yes/no]

For example, if you don't want Outsiders to have any permissions: /t set perm outsider off

Plot Permissions

With plots you can have your own set of permissions. They are exactly the same as Set Perms and Toggle Perms. Use /plot set perm and /plot toggle in conjunction with the aforementioned parameters.

In addition, a plot can be changed to a different type (shop/embassy/wilds) with /plot set [type].

Shop: A plot that is used for making chestshops and selling items to other players. This can have an additional tax to the residential plots. /t set shoptax [amount].

Embassy: A plot that a member of another town can purchase and build on. This may also have an additional tax set. /t set embassytax [amount].


Outposts are extensions available for your Town. It follows the same rules of making a new town, 16 Chunks away from any other Town/Outpost but it also cost 7500 Stompz. After the initial claim you may claim more chunks to make your Outpost bigger.

Once you have your money and land ready, stand on it and type /t claim outpost.


Nations are what connect individual Towns into Countries. These are quite expensive to maintain, and should not be started unless you are wealthy and/or have a steady income of taxes from your town. Nations cost 1000 Stompz daily to uphold and 50000 Stompz to create. You can set national taxes to help pay off the daily tax, and you can also appoint Nation Capitals.

Once you have your money saved up, decide your nations name and /n new [name].

Invite other towns to your nation with /n add [town].

Set your daily nation tax with /n set taxes [amount].


All players on the server are registered as Residents within Towny. Towny residents have access to their own Friends List, which enables sharing building privileges between friends on owned plots. All residents have a resident page, which keeps track of money, town membership, and the friends list. See the "/res" family of commands for more information.


Assistants are residents who are promoted by a town owner. Assistants can add and remove town members, build on any plot, claim plots, and set town and plot permissions.

A mayor can assign a resident to assistant with /t rank add [playername] assistant.
