I believe we have changed this in 2.0. It has now been made so that edit zones take priority. So now you will be able to set a no-edit zone across the entire map with select editable zones wherever you wish.

I'll need to double check.

Awesome. Well, I definitely can't wait for 2.0 then. Along with all of the other amazing stuff. I guess I'll just hold off on making the map then. Thanks for the info.

You do realize you can multi quote? :P Just a FYI so you dont spam like you are right now.

Oh, whoops. I don't use forums too often. And I rarely ever quote. How do you multi-quote (for future reference)?

Because the bigger zone always takes over. I tried that out of curiousity. If you have an edit zone inside a no edit zone, the edit zone is essentially ignored. That would be a fantastic feature to have, though. Would suit my map perfectly.

Should be able to create a zone and add someones name to it, and make it an edit zone.

Would that mean that only the person assigned to it can build there? Because, if I understand the build zones correctly, anyone can build in an edit zone. Does that change if a person's name is attached to it?

yup, that is correct.

you can also put no-edit zones over each plot & assign one particular player who is currently in your world to be the 'Builder' of that zone. They can't use marker blocks in there but can edit the usual way, while no one else can.
That's essential really if your giving players set plots - Without it they can all grief each other all day.

I tried that already and it didn't work. I set up the no edit zone, assigned my friend as the build but he couldn't build in it.

Think so, id test it for you but busy at the moment, you'll have to check and see if it works.

It did work but the only problem is, anyone can edit in the areas without the zones. I was hoping to have areas where someone could buy a plot of land and only they could edit that area. I've actually done that before but I can't remember exactly what I did to make it work and I recently got a new hard drive, so the old world is gone now, so I can't even check to see what I did. It seems like something has changed with the zones or they're glitch.

you need permissions on anytime anyone can edit a block, with or without zones.
You will need the permission on but have the no edit zone around but not where you want people to be able to edit.

Ok, I think I get it. Basically, if I want to make a large city map but have none of it editable except for some plots of land that people can buy and build houses on, I would have to put no edit zones over the whole map except for those plots of land. Is that right?

Im not sure If this is what you did or not but
Put the zone on non edit, and make sure its not a spawn
Next give him edit and adventure, you might also try grief
And assign him as the builder

Thats all I can tell you, it may or may not work

Didn't work. Aside from Grief, that was the first thing I tried.

I'm having a strange problems with the zones right now. My friend and I are working on an RPG map right now but the zones don't seem to be cooperating. I've read up on how they work and I'm doing apparently the right thing but it's not working. I want the world to mostly be non-editable except in certain zones but I've tried a couple things to no avail. I've tried having:

The player edit permission off but the zone edit permission on
The player edit permission on but the zone edit permission off with a builder selected

Neither allowed my friend to edit in the zone but I could both times (I'm the world owner). Any help would be appreciated. Am I missing something or are the zones glitched?

This is the prologue to a novel that I'm currently writing. Just thought I'd share it here, so that I can get some feedback on it. I want to make sure I'm going the right way with it because if it's crap, I'll just scrap it. I'm currently tossing up a few story ideas, so I want to be sure that this is the right one to pursue. I hope you guys like it and any feedback positive or negative (as long as it's constructive) is much appreciated. And know for the story:

           October 9th, year 2165. My name is Isaac Johnson. I'm a third-born here on Luna. My great-grandfather fought in World War III back on Earth in 2056. Once the war started, the Earth quickly became a mess. Governments around the world started accelerating their Luna colonization projects, knowing that Earth didn't have much time left. They were getting desperate.

           Many countries, including the U.S., had already started drafting anyone who was not a minor and could hold a gun. By 2072, the war had ended leaving billions dead and the Earth no longer a habitable place. The world's governments quickly mass transported the remaining survivors, a fraction of the population from before the war, to Luna. Everyone was separated into different colonies across the surface of Luna. A year later, the first-borns of Luna, including my grandfather, had arrived. In the 92 years that have passed since then, things have become progressively worse.

           At first, it was nothing major. Occasional raids from bandit clans on certain colonies. Small-time criminals causing trouble in some of the larger colonies. Nothing the colony guards couldn't handle. But over time, as more people began to hate it here, more bandit clans started showing up and they increased in size. They started fighting not just each other but against the colonies, too. Not just the small raids like before but full-scale wars. Eventually, the guards at almost all of the small colonies and even some of the larger ones, were dead. With no one to replace them, the civilians within the colonies had to learn to protect themselves. Luna became a much more disjointed place after that.

           In the past few months, it's gone from really bad to way worse. At this point, bandits are the least of most people's worries. That's especially true for the survivors here at Colony 6. We were attacked a few weeks ago by terrifying creatures that have become known as the Nightthrall, due to their appearance and because they only come out at night.

           The Nightthrall are hideous, gangly creatures with jet black skin and red eyes. Their heads slightly resemble a rat. Long, pointed ears and a slightly protruding mouth with sharp fangs. They also have sharp, slightly curved claws on the ends of each of their 3 fingers and thumb. They are very fast and agile and so, make for very difficult enemies.

           “Isaac get out here! We're under attack!” screams my best friend Jeb.
