Is there any way you can enable TNT in certain regions in Minecraft (regions defined with WorldGuard) but disable it where it is not specifically allowed using WorldGuard? If not, are there any addons which can do this?

Sure you can define a region with the wooden hatchet and then with worldguard flag the TNT to disallow it

/region flag "region_name" tnt deny

Remove the " " for the region name that you gave.

Here's a list of things you can allow or deny for regions

To disable TNT in the entire world

Go to this place where the WG plugin's installed


And look for the line where it says


Set it to true

But how to disallow it for the whole world and then overwrite this? – Andalur Oct 22 '12 at 2:32

This does not work, when I try to ignite TNT in the region it does no damage even if I set flags properly. – Andalur Oct 22 '12 at 2:49
@Andalur Did you disable ("deny") the TNT in the region, or enable ("allow") it? This answer is confusing, because both commands disable TNT. You have to pick one to reverse. – SevenSidedDie Oct 22 '12 at 3:17
@SevenSidedDie I disabled TNT with worldguard globally an then tried to enable it manually in a region using flags. – Andalur Oct 22 '12 at 5:26
