Nope Logo

Nope allows the user to alter standard game behaviour within containers. The primary goals of the plugin is to:

  • Provide Minecraft server administrators with advanced control over portions of their Sponge server
  • Provide Sponge developers with a powerful API to implement their own modular functionality
  • Be as lightweight and as fast as possible


  • More than 50 default settings that can be set on certain regions (Scenes) of a world, on an entire world, or the entire server
  • Many settings can evaluate to multiple values to allow for greater control and granularity
  • Scenes can have multiple Zones, which are three-dimensional volumes in a world, so they can be combined to create more complex shapes with unified behavior
  • Zones come in various shapes, like spheres, cylinders, and cuboids
  • An in-game interactive Zone editor
  • A chat-based GUI to for easier assignment of settings
  • Per-setting targeting of effect to easily ensure the correct users are affected
  • Smart restriction of behavior to automatically ensure administrative personnel are not adversely affected by protections
  • An API to allow easy creation of custom settings and custom setting-related event handlers
  • Host context compatibility to enable context-dependent permissions with your permissions plugin


SettingA combination of a Setting Key and a Setting Value that presumably changes game behavior in some way
HostA container for Profiles and Zones
ProfileA container for Settings
Global/ServerThe Host that applies its settings everywhere
Domain/WorldThe Host that applies its settings everywhere inside a specific Minecraft world
SceneA Host that applies its settings to a set of Volumes
ZoneA 3-dimensional region to partially manifest the location of a Scene
TargetThe criteria to identify the intended group of users affected by a Setting

Why Beta?

Nope v0 was developed for Sponge API 7 and has since been fully deprecated in favor of revamping the entire project. As such, support for Sponge API 7 and other earlier versions of Sponge will not be supported.

Nope’s BETA series is new and is developed for Sponge API 8 and above, and a stable Nope v1 will be fully released when all of:

  •  A stable release of Sponge using API 8 has been released
  •  Nope’s internal functionality has been fully tested
  •  All of Nope’s individual default setting handlers have been tested
  •  All pending design decisions have been addressed and implemented

You can help with all of these tasks! I greatly encourage you to download the plugin and try it out if you are searching for a robust administrative tool for your Sponge API 8 server. Now is the time to request changes and features and report bugs, so they don’t come up in the official release. Create an issue on this repository to share your thoughts. You can also head over to Sponge to contribute.


To install the plugin, first install Sponge. Put Nope’s jar file into the mods folder of your server and run the server normally. We suggest you also install a permission-management plugin.
