Towny Guide


Welcome to SentinelCraft!

If you just joined our community and you need some guidance on how to start playing our server, you came to the right place.
First of all, if you joined for the first time, after logging in into the server, you will have to do /register <password> then /login<password>. After the first join, you will only need to keep using /login <password>

Also on the first login, We want to make sure everyone has knowledge of the rules. So you will have to read all rules, which can be found by our Rule's holder NPC in spawn. Right-clicking on the NPC, it will give you our general rules. You will auto-join the server as a member but do make the time to read the rules or ask staff about any unclear information about the rules to avoid any unwanted punishments.

After you successfully done all of it, You will see that spawn is protected from building to prevent griefing. To be able to build your house, you will need to warp into the wilderness, which you can find on the /warproom or by doing /warps. You can also do /rtp which will randomly tp you to one of the main spawns in Horizon.

To help you in your gameplay, we have also implemented some useful commands. Below is a list of some of the basic ones, and you can always go to the tutorial room by typing /tutorial to check out the rest of them. You can also check the list of our other guides by doing /guides.

Making Money:

If you want to make money in-game, there are many ways of doing so.
   - The first and most common way is by going to the shop /shop and selling stuff by right-clicking signs that say [Sell]
   - You can also /vote and get 100$ and 10 tokens each time you vote on a link. There are five links you can vote on every 24 hours. So you can earn 500$ and 50 tokens a day.
   - Some towns/players have shops where you can sell items in order to make money. You can also make your own shop.
   - /Auction is also a great way to earn money.
   - If you cannot wait to have money you can also /donate and receive up to 250000$ in-game cash, along with quite a few other perks.

General Gameplay:

This is a primarily survival server, that means this is a server that plays along the same line as single-player mode survival in vanilla Minecraft. No one in the game is granted creative except for the owner.

Your first task in starting out here is to find a place to build. We suggest doing /kit tools so you can get some free basic tools and a bit of food. Next you should do /warps and select a biome you would like. Then just start exploring until you find an area far enough away from anyone else that you like. Once you have that you can set up shop and start building. You can harvest and sell wood logs, ores, and farmed goods to the shop to make some money.

This is only a starter guide into our server, as you can imagine there are a lot more commands that can be used. If you need any help with the more advanced commands we recommend asking other players or staff members for help. If you still have any doubts, more questions or even have any suggestions to help our server get better, you can go to our forums and post a topic about it.

We hope you enjoy your stay,

SentinelCraft Sign Guide

Hi everyone!

In this guide, we will be teaching you how to make your own player-shops using signs.

Sell Signs

At our /shop, you will notice that there are [Buy] and [Sell] signs. These signs are exclusive to /shop and cannot be made by players. These signs are important, because they are a good way to sell your items to make money. However, not all items can be sold at /shop or even our other economy plugin /auctionhouse.

The most common type of player-shop is selling to other players using trade signs. This can be done either with in-game currency or with other items. Here's how you would setup one of these signs.


On the first line, you will need to type in [Trade]. This is all you need to do on the first line.


On this line, you will need to type in your asking price. Your asking price can either be in the form of in-game currency or other items. In example 1, I want to set my asking price at $100. To do this you will need to type in $100. In the second example, I want to set my asking price at 1 Diamond. Typing in 1 Diamond will set your asking price at 1 Diamond. You will also see that there is an additional colon the second line. There is no need to type this in as once you finish the sign, it will automatically appear. This tells you how much money is in the sign once someone has bought your items. This can be retrieved by right-clicking the sign.


This line is arguably the trickiest line to type in. It may seem intimidating on the surface, but it's much simpler than it seems. On this line you will need to type in the amount of items per transaction you are selling, as well as the supply of items you want in the sign. The way you would type this sign would be: {Amount per transaction}{item name}:{supply}. In this example, I want to sell an amount of 64 stone blocks with 320 blocks (5 stacks) stored inside the sign. It's important that when typing in the item you want to sell, that you have the correct item names or ItemDB for the sign. To check this, you can type in /itemdb while holding the item in your hand. This will give you a list of correct names to put on the sign.


You will leave this line blank and press Done! Below are your finished products.

In the first sign, I am selling 64 stone for $100 with 320 blocks in stock. In the second sign, I am selling 64 stone for 1 Diamond with 320 blocks in stock.

If your new found shop does well and you run out of blocks in the sign, you can add more into the sign by adding the item in to your hotbar. You CANNOT add items into the sign from your inventory, it must be in the hotbar.

Buying Items with Trade Signs

You can also buy items from player using trade signs. This is an effective way to receive items you need while you're offline. This is how you setup one of these signs.


On the first line, you will need to type in [Trade]. This is all you need to do on the first line.


This line is essentially inverted from sell sign. You will need to type in the correct ItemDB for the item you are buying. In this example below, I will be buying 1 gold block. Like the sell signs, an additional colon will appear in this example, but you don't need to type this in. The colon will indicate the amount of items that have been sold to you. To retrieve these items, you can right click on the sign.

gblock is one of many correct itemdb's for gold blocks.


For this line, you will need to type in the amount that you want to buy the item for as well as the money you want store in the sign. This is proper format: <Amount per transaction:Amount of money stored in the sign>. In this example, I want to set my buying price at $1000 and I want to store $7000 into the sign. Once the sign is created, the money will be directly taken from your account. It's important to supply enough money into the sign, because once all of the money stored is gone, money CANNOT be reloaded into the sign. This will force you to make a brand new sign.

Line 4:

Once again, you leave this line empty. Here's your finished product!

In this sign, I am buying 1 gold block for $1000 each, with $7000 stored in the sign.

Selling EXP with Trade Signs

With Trade signs, you can also sell your own EXP to other players! It's important to know how much EXP you have before you sell it. You can check your EXP levels by doing the /exp command. Once you know how many levels you have, you can move forward with selling your exp.


On the first line, you will need to type in [Trade]. This is all you need to do on the first line.


This line will be the asking price you want to sell your exp for. This is exact same scenario as if you were selling items to other players.


On this line, you will need to type in the amount of exp you want to sell as well as the amount you want to supply in the sign. To do this it's {Amount per transaction} exp:{Amount supplied}. In this example, I want to sell 1,395 EXP per transaction with 1,395 EXP stored into the sign.

1395 EXP is common with these signs, as it equates to 30 EXP levels.


As always, leave this empty. Here is the finished product!

In this sign, I am selling 1395 EXP for $100 each, with 1395 EXP stored into the sign.

The important thing to note is once you make this sign, you CANNOT reload the sign with more exp. You must make a brand new sign if you wish to reload more EXP.

Disposal Signs

With signs, you can craft your own [Disposal] signs. These signs allow you to dispose of any unwanted items. To make this, all you have to do is type [Disposal] on the first line of the sign and press Done. To use the sign, you can right click on the sign and it will allow you to place items within it. Once you close out of the sign, the items left in the sign will be disposed.

We hope you find this guide helpful!

Towny Guide

Towny is a versatile, player-controlled land management plugin. Towny offers solutions for PvP, griefing, inflated economies and monsters to minecraft server admins. Towny allows players to work together and agaisnt each other as they see fit.

The Towny world is named Kattalox, and it costs $10,000 to create a town. However, make sure you have enough money for the daily upkeep and make sure to follow minecraft chunk borders while planning your town, If you do not have enough money to support town upkeep, the town will fall into ruins!

Abusing your powers can lead to punishment. Make sure to follow the rules.

Players are considered inactive after 30 days without joining the server. After this time, you are allowed to remove their build, permissions, and they will be auto kicked from the town. Make sure to visit their owned plot when this happens.

In-Depth Player Statistics

We have implemented new in-depth player statisitcs with a standalone website. This will allow you to track multiple things about your activity on the server and give you a greaterr understanding on how you play!

Key Information:

  • You can only see the statistics about youself and not other players.
  • To see your statistics you have to link your username and website longin together.
  • Statisitcs only started when it was implemented on the 15th of November 2021, there is no information above this date.
  • Network Overview is not available to anyone below Admin due to the sensitive nature of some of the statistics held. This is used to see the trajectory of the server and player retention.


Getting Started:

In-game, run the command /plan register. You need to be at least a member to register. This will give you a link tyo click on. Depending on your browser it may say the connection is unsafe, be we are hosting the website on the same dedicated machine as the server and not trying to steal your data, it is safe to proceed.

After this point, it should give you a webpage which looks like the following:

Use the same username as you do in the server and make up a password, preferably one different from one used on other sites. Once you have provided this information ,it should now give you the following popup on the page:

Copy the first command it gives you, and run it in-game and you should get the following message in game:

You have now successfully linked your in-game account to the statistics website!

If you ever forget your password to your account, we as staff do not have access to that. You must reset it following these steps:

  1. Login into the Minecraft server as you normally would. Once online and connected, you'll need to run the /plan unregister command.
  2. It will ask you to confirm ou wish to unregister your linked accounts. Click the green arros to confirm. Once unregistered, follow the previous steps to re-regsiter, using the same name as you in-game account.

Viewing Your Statistics

There are two ways in which you can view your statistics either through the in-game commands or through the website:

In-game: You can view basic statistics in-game using /plan ingame, it shall look like the following:

On the website: To view more in-depth statistics about yourself, you can use /plan player ingame. It should give you a link to follow the statistics website. Use the username and password you entered earlier to link your account to login.

Once you have logged in you should see a page that would look something like this:

There is a lot of information displayed on this page, take your time with reading this page. One the left hand side, there are further pages to dive deeper into your statistics.


This tab allows you to search through and see which days you have been online and for how long you have been online!

PvP & PvE

This tab allows you to see information about your player deaths and player kills, also gives in-depth information

Server Overview

This tab allows you to see information about which servers you have played on the most and even for how long.


Under this tab there is a lot of data for each of the servers! A lot of this data is personal and specific and why there is no screenshot of this. Take your time to look through all of this as it does make for some really interesting reading!

Guide to Global Market Chest

You may or may not have used Auction House for most of your buying and selling to other players, but we have entered a new era; it's time to adjust to Global Market Chest. As we move to BungeeCord, we have compiled a guide for you to adjust to this new system; we're sure that, given enough time, you'll grow to love this new interface and everything it offers!


How do I use the Global Market Chest plugin?

You can access the Global Market Chest interface by typing /ah or /auction. This is what the Global Market Chest interface looks like:

How do I create an auction/how do I sell an item?

Drop the item you'd like to sell in the white glass pane. You can adjust the quantity by doing one of the following things;

  • Pressing the left orange glass pane, this will allow you to add a full stack of the item.
  • Pressing the right orange glass pane, this will allow you to sell all the stacks in your inventory of the same item and quantity.
  • Pressing the purple glass pane, this allows you to sell +1 stack of the same item and quantity
  • Pressing the blue glass pane, this allows you to remove 1 stack from being sold of the item at the same quantity that you initally specified, without changing the price.

Use this for repeatable auctions. For example: when you have a stack of ingots, but only want to sell 1 at a time, this will setup 64 sparate auctions for you.

One you have added the right quantity, press the nether star at the bottom right to continue to the pricing page.

How do I set the price for my auction?

By pressing on the ores and ore blocks, you can set the value of yout item. The upper row is to add values, the lower row is to subtract values. Quick Mafs!

In the bottom centre of the page, there is a name tag that suggests a price for the item based on recent sales. Cliucking it will set it to that value. You'll never have to keep guessing again!

How do I purchange items using Global Market Chest?

Amongst the different categories of items available to buy at the auction house, you can enter a category by clicking it. Then you can go ahead and find the item of interest and click it.

You should get a menu asknig you to confirm the purchase. By clicking the item in the middle of the panes, you will have bought the item. You can also click the arrow on the top left to go back to the previous page.

One of your desired items might be a shulker box containing multiple items (e.g. potions). GMC helps you with purchasing shulker boxes too.

Here you can see that a player wants to purchase a shulker box. Aside from the option that you might have to buy the shulker, you can also check for its contents by clicking the shulker shell beside this.

When you do this, you will be shown an interface that lets you view what is inside the shulker you are buying. This is useful for making sure you are getting what you asked for.

How do I search for items using GMC?

Can't find the item you want? You can use the search option! After accessing GMC using /ah, you can click on the hopper at the top left to search for your desired item.

You have 3 options to do so, either searching for a similar item by pressing the grass block or searching for the item by its name by pressing the paper, or searching a player name to check what items they are selling by pressing the player head. 

Auctions in the last 24 hours

Clicking on the clock at the top left, allows you to check the auctions made in the last 24 hours.

How do I view my auction history?

By clicking on the enchanted book in the bottom left, you could see your auction history.

Here you could check your auctions that are in progress, expired, sold, bought, and canceled.

You could undo every auction you have by pressing the red wool and renew any expired items (shown in the expired items section) using the orange wool.


Hopefully, this guide gives you a full scope of how to use the Global Market Chest. We know that adjusting to a new system can seem daunting at first, but this guide should give you the A-Z of how to navigate this menu, and how to buy and sell your items!


Happy auctioning!



Husk Claims Tutorial

Tutorial video:

Disclaimer: This was made for GriefPrevention, a similar plugin, HuskClaims that we have updated to works similarly, so we have not removed the tutorial.

Step 1: Claim your area

First thing we got to do, is to take out your golden shove. With that, right click one corner of your base (shows a diamond blocks marking it), then move to opposite corner and right click again. This claims the area. You should end up with some blocks marking your area. 

If the area you set up is too small or too big, you can right clock on any of the corners to resize it. This only works for rectangular shapes. You can also click next to it, and move o the next area, to make the protection a different rectangular shape.

Step 2: Use subdivisions

If you don't want everyone to be able to edit it freely and only want them to make builds in specific areas, you can use subdivisions. To use them, you need to change the golden shovel mode. To change it to that mode, use the command /childclaim [radius].

Now in your claimed area, right-click on the corner of your subdivision and then go to the opposite corner and right click again. Subdivisions show up with iron instead of gold.

Step 3: Give permissions for friends

Now that you have the subdivisions made, you need them to be able to build there. For that, you can use the trust commands individually in each subdivision. When you know who will build in the area, you'll have to set up their permissions:

  • /accesstrust [playername] -> lets trusted players press buttons, levers, and pressure plates and open doors, trapdoors, and fences gates as long as they have been unlocked through /lwc
  • /containertrust [playername] -> lets trusted players open chests, hoppers, furnaces, etc - and edit the items in them, only if they have been trusted or unlocked through /lwc
  • /trust [playername] -> lets trusted players place/break blocks (and all of the above)
  • /permissiontrust [playername] - lets trusted players have full claim management access, letting them trust/untrust other players, toggle groups and create child claims (and all of the above)

Make sure to do them inside the subdivision. Otherwsie the person you are giving the permissions will have them everywhere in your claim.

Step 4: Remove permissions or subdivisions

You can remove permissions from a subdivision. Sometimes they have given others permissions to build there. So when you want to kick a player from your area, use /untrust all. This will remove the permissions of everyone in that subdivision.

To remove a subdivision, stand inside the subdivision, and type /abandonclaim. Make sure you stand in the subdivision, or else you delete the entire protection.

Step 5: Maintenance of claims

Abusing your powers can lead to punishment. Make sure to follow the rules.

Players are considered inactive after 30 days without joining the server. If you are a trusted player on an inactive players' claim, you are able to request claim leadership transfer to your name, if you have a legitimate reason (you have 60 days). However, if someone goes inactive for 90 days, the entire claim might get restored to nature. So make sure to request this in time.

If you need help checking where your claim is, you can use bluemap. {insert new image here}
