Hello fellow Azerturians!

Towny and its commands can be confusing sometimes, especially if you're new to this game-mode. I thought I would compile my knowledge of the Towny commands into a little guide to help new and old players alike better understand what commands are available and what they do.

Very helpful in the commands /n new and /t new do it more like /t new (name)(Requires lodger rank and 2.5k)
I think that might make it easier because people are always asking How do I make a new town? /t new doesn't work etc
Thanks for taking the time to do this though
With /towny map , you can see a map that shows you the town you're in. İts helpful when you lost in buildings. You can add this to the post if you want.

The Towny rank permissions are very inaccurate.

Needs a small amount of work and additions, but you have a got a great start! :)

Could you please point out the mistakes so that I may change them? I'm just going off of personal knowledge--seeing as you know more from experience I would greatly appreciate the shared knowledge so as to update this guide and help others, not misguide them.

What else do you suggest I add and work on?


Staff member
There are just a lot of commands in towny and a lot of them are separated by rank. Even I don't remember all of them. I will try to gather some of the ones missing when I am free. :)

How to make specific kinds of people be able to build/destroy etc. in your town:
/town set perm (resident/ally/outsider) (build/destroy/switch/itemuse) (on/off)

There is also plot perms, which is the same for town but for a specific plot:
/plot set perm (friend/ally/outsider) (build/destroy/switch/itemuse) (on/off)

For example:
if you want an ally to be able to build in your town, you would use /town set perm ally build on.
You must also do the command for destroy if you want them to remove blocks.

if you want a friend to be able to build on your plot, you would use /plot set perm friend build on.
Same here that you need to do the same command but destroy if you want them to remove blocks.
Note: That if you want a friend to be able to do this then they need to be on your friend list:
/res friend add (name)
