Permissions modding - what is/isn’t allowed to do in claimed areas
Have you noticed you cannot mine voxels in claimed areas of your enemies? That is because of how we chose to define permission settings for safe area. And yes, this and much more is also moddable :). This time there is no need create any textures, we will only need to edit one text file and add it to your mod. You will find the file with permissions definitions in Data\Permissions.sbc Descriptions of permission nodes:
<Permission Name="Build"> <Usergroup Groupname="Owner" Allowed="true"/> <Usergroup Groupname="Allies" Allowed="true"/> <Usergroup Groupname="Neutral" Allowed="false"/> <Usergroup Groupname="Enemies" Allowed="false"/> </Permission>
Permission definition sets which groups of players are allowed to perform an action. In this example, it is “Build” action.
<Usergroup Groupname=”Owner” Allowed=”true”>
Groupname refers to group of players, for which we are setting the permission(in this example it is player who owns the area). Allowed parameter allows/disallows the action depending on if it is set to “true” or “false”.
Parameter sets which area permission set is used for player owned territories.
Description of available actions to set permissions for:
