Town Claiming

All you need to know about claiming.
Claiming land for your town is very important, but also very easy. Before claiming, you must first find an area on the map that is unclaimed and somewhere you want to settle. To view what chunks are available, you can visit our Dynmap here or type /town map in-game.
ℹ️ Claims are based on Minecraft’s chunk system. One claim is the same as one chunk which is an area of 16 x 16 blocks.
💡 You might wanna consider your neighbors, the biome, distances, and much more when deciding where to claim.
Newer players should start off simple with a single-chunk claim, a square claim, or by using the auto-claim system.
You can read about the different alternatives and how to operate each of them below.

1️⃣ Single-Chunk Claim

The easiest way to claim. By using /town claim, you will only claim the chunk you are currently standing in. These townblocks need to be directly adjacent to already claimed townblocks, unless it is an outpost. Simple, huh?

2️⃣ Square Claim

A very powerful but easy way to claim. If you want a basic but decently sized claim, you can claim all chunks in a square around you. Use /town claim square <radius> to do this.
🏝️ Want a 5 by 5 square claim (25 chunks total)? Type /town claim square 5

3️⃣ Auto Claiming

If you wish to claim more chunks but want more control of which chunks in particular, you can use the auto claiming system. It’s very simple to use - below is a step by step instruction on how to auto-claim.
  1. 1.
    Enable auto claiming using /town claim auto
  2. 2.
    Walk around to claim any unclaimed chunk you enter
  3. 3.
    Disable auto claiming when you’re satisfied using the same command as in step 1.
