Claims Api

HuskClaims provides API for getting, creating resizing, & deleting claims, child claims, and admin claims, and managing claim blocks.

This page assumes you have read the general API introduction and that you have both imported HuskClaims into your project and added it as a dependency.

1. Getting if a location is claimed

  • On the Bukkit platform, get a Position object using #getPosition(org.bukkit.Location location)
  • Use #isClaimAt(Position position) to check if the location has been claimed
  • Or, use #getClaimAt(Position position) to get the Optional<Claim> at the location
    • With an Optional<Claim>, you can use Optional#isPresent() to check if a claim exists at the location
    • With a Claim object, you can also check if it's an admin claim (#isAdminClaim()) or a child claim (#isChildClaim(ClaimWorld)) — more on claim worlds in a bit!
  • You can get the displayed name of who owns the claim using #getClaimOwnerNameAt(Position position), returning an Optional<String>
    • If the claim is an admin claim, the owner name will be an administrator (or whatever you have set in the locales)
  • Check the Trust API for trusting users in a claim.
Example — Getting if a location is claimed
void showClaimerNameAt(org.bukkit.Location location) {
    Position position = huskClaims.getPosition(location);
    Optional<Claim> claim = huskClaims.getClaimAt(position);
    if (claim.isPresent()) {
        System.out.println("This location is claimed by " + huskClaims.getClaimOwnerNameAt(position).get());
    }
}

1.1 Getting the ClaimWorld for a World

  • Claims exist within a ClaimWorld in HuskClaims. Worlds without ClaimWorlds are not protected by HuskClaims.
  • On the Bukkit platform, get a World object from a Bukkit World using #getWorld(org.bukkit.World) (or call #getWorld() on a Position object)
  • You can then get the ClaimWorld for a world using #getClaimWorld(World world) which will return an Optional<ClaimWorld>
Example — Getting the claim world for a world
void showClaimWorld(org.bukkit.World world) {
    Optional<ClaimWorld> claimWorld = huskClaims.getClaimWorld(world);
    if (claimWorld.isPresent()) {
        System.out.println("This world is protected by HuskClaims, and contains " + claimWorld().getClaimCount() + " claims!");
    }
}

2. Checking what a user can do at a location

  • On the Bukkit platform, get an OnlineUser object using #getOnlineUser(@NotNull org.bukkit.Player player)
    • Use #getPosition() to get the Position of an OnlineUser to check if there's a claim where they stand (see #1)
  • Check if a user can perform OperationTypes using isOperationAllowed(user, type, position)
    • Use the #isOperationAllowed method that accepts and build an Operation via Operation.builder() for more complex operation checks!
  • Additionally, we can check if a user has a TrustLevel.Privileges at a location using #isPrivilegeAllowed(TrustLevel.Privilege privilege, User user, Position position)
  • Finally, we can also look up a user''s trust level in a claim using #getTrustLevelAt(Position position, Trustable user) (User and OnlineUser implement Trustable!)
    • This will return an Optional<TrustLevel>, which you can check if it is present using Optional#isPresent(), or through the #ifPresent((trustLevel) -> {}) lambda syntax.
Example — Checking what a user can do at a location
void checkUserAccessAt(org.bukkit.Player player, org.bukkit.Location location) {
    OnlineUser user = huskClaims.getOnlineUser(player);
    Position position = huskClaims.getPosition(location);
    if (huskClaims.isOperationAllowed(user, OperationType.BREAK_BLOCKS, position)) {
        System.out.println("User can build here!");
    }
    if (huskClaims.isPrivilegeAllowed(TrustLevel.Privilege.MANAGE_CHILD_CLAIMS, user, position)) {
        System.out.println("User can manage child claims here!");
    }
    huskClaims.getTrustLevelAt(position, user).ifPresent((level) -> {
        System.out.println("User has " + level.name() + " trust here!"); // "User has Build Trust here!"
    });
}

3. Editing claims

  • Create a region using Region.from(BlockPosition pos1, BlockPosition pos2)
    • Position extends BlockPosition, so you can use Position objects for this
    • Or, get a BlockPosition using #getBlockPosition(x, z)
    • You can also create a region from a square radial selection using Region.from(BlockPosition center, int radius)
  • Check if a region contains claims using #isRegionClaimed(World world, Region region) or #isRegionClaimed(ClaimWorld world, Region region)
  • If not, create an admin claim using #createAdminClaim(ClaimWorld world, Region region)
    • This method returns a CompletableFuture<Claim>, which you can use to get the created claim when it has been created asynchronously
  • You can also create regular claims through the API using #createClaim(ClaimWorld world, Region region, User user) — note that the user needs claim blocks for this (more on how to check/update this below)
Example — Creating an admin claim
void createAdminClaimAround(org.bukkit.Player player, org.bukkit.Location location) {
    OnlineUser user = huskClaims.getOnlineUser(player);
    Position position = huskClaims.getPosition(location);
    Region region = Region.from(position, 100); // Create a 100-block radius region around the player
    if (!huskClaims.isRegionClaimed(position.getWorld(), region)) {
        huskClaims.createAdminClaim(position.getWorld(), region).thenAccept((claim) -> {
            // This future will complete when the claim has been created
            System.out.println("Created admin claim at " + claim.getCenter().toString());
        }).exceptionally((e) -> { 
            // This future can also complete exceptionally if the claim could not be created
            System.out.println("Failed to create admin claim: " + e.getMessage());
            return null;
        }); 
    } else {
        System.out.println("This region is already claimed!");
    }
}

3.1 Resizing & deleting claims

  • You can resize claims using #resizeClaim(Claim claim, Region region), or #resizeChildClaim(Claim claim, Region region) for child claims
    • These methods return a CompletableFuture<Claim>, which you can use to get the resized claim when it has been resized asynchronously
  • You can delete claims using #deleteClaim(Claim claim), or #deleteChildClaim(Claim claim) for child claims
Example — Resizing a claim
void resizeClaim(org.bukkit.Player player, org.bukkit.Location location) {
    OnlineUser user = huskClaims.getOnlineUser(player);
    Position position = huskClaims.getPosition(location);
    Optional<Claim> claim = huskClaims.getClaimAt(position);
    if (claim.isPresent()) {
        Region region = Region.from(position, 100); // Create a 100-block radius region around the player
        if (huskClaims.isRegionClaimed(position.getWorld(), region)) {
            System.out.println("This region is already claimed!");
            return;
        }
        huskClaims.resizeClaim(claim.get(), region).thenAccept((resizedClaim) -> {
            // This future will complete when the claim has been resized
            System.out.println("Resized claim at " + resizedClaim.getCenter().toString());
        }).exceptionally((e) -> { 
            // This future can also complete exceptionally if the claim could not be resized
            System.out.println("Failed to resize claim: " + e.getMessage());
            return null;
        }); 
    } else {
        System.out.println("This region is not claimed!");
    }
}

4. Checking & updating a user's claim blocks

  • You can get an OnlineUser's claim block balance using #getClaimBlocks(OnlineUser user)
    • For offline users, use the #getClaimBlocks(User user) or #getClaimBlocks(UUID uuid) methods which will return a CompletableFuture<Long> with their claim block count.
    • You can also quickly check if a user has enough claim blocks using #hasClaimBlocks(OnlineUser user, long amount)
  • You can update a user's claim block balance using the #giveClaimBlocks, #takeClaimBlocks and #setClaimBlocks methods which accept a User and a long amount
  • Note that these methods will fire the platform ClaimBlocksChangeEvent, which you can listen to for when a user's claim block balance changes
  • Also note a player cannot have a negative claim block balance and #takeClaimBlocks will throw an IllegalArgumentException if you attempt to take more claim blocks than the user has
Example — Checking & updating a user's claim blocks
void giveClaimBlocks(org.bukkit.Player player, long amount) {
    OnlineUser user = huskClaims.getOnlineUser(player);
    if (huskClaims.hasClaimBlocks(user, amount)) {
        huskClaims.takeClaimBlocks(user, amount); // This will empty the user's claim block balance
        System.out.println("Took " + amount + " claim blocks from " + player.getName());
    } else {
        System.out.println(player.getName() + " does not have enough claim blocks!");
    }
}
