Claims is one of the most important features of Venture. It is used to protect your builds from griefers, or from players that want to steal items from you.

To get started with claims, you only need a few items.

A Golden Shovel. This will allow you to create and resize your claims.

A Stick. This will allow you to check if a block is claimed as well as check the borders of claims. The outlines will be shown by Gold Block as markers with Glowstone at the corners.

Using the golden shovel

Creating a new claim

Right clicking at two points to mark two opposing corners will create a claim.

Resizing a claim

Right click once using a stick to view an existing claim and its respective markers. Right click on a corner block with the golden shovel and then again on a different position further in or further out to move that corner.

Cancelling operations

Putting away a golden shovel without completing an operation cancels all actions

Using the stick

Right clicking shows existing claim locations

Shift right clicking searches for all claims in a 100 block radius and shows their location

Left clicking hides the markers

Trust system

There are four different types of trust: Accessors, Builders, Containers, and Managers. Each of them has a different tier of abilities and things they can access to. Give other people these permissions wisely in order to avoid potential griefing or stealing in your claimed land.


/accesstrust player Gives a player permission to use your buttons, levers, and beds.


/containertrust player Gives a player permission to use your buttons, levers, beds, crafting gear, containers, and animals.


/trust player Gives another player permission to edit in your claim.


/permissiontrust player Grants a player permission to share his permission level with others.


In order to have a "plot system" in Grief Prevention, you will first need to be standing in your main claim and doing /subdivideclaim, which changes your shovel from Basic claim mode to Sub-Division claim mode. Each sub-division claim can be done exactly the same as how a normal claim is done but it has to be in your own claimed area. The sub-division areas are marked with white wool and iron blocks are used as corner blocks. These can be seen when using the stick.

If you are standing inside your sub-division claim and use /trust <player> command, you will give access to the particular player to build only in your sub-division area (If he hasn't already been trusted on your main claim). Each Sub-divisions trust list is different depending on how many people you trust in that sub-division and can be seen by doing /trustlist inside your sub-division. If you want more than 1 person untrusted from your sub-division then you can use the command /untrust all while standing inside the sub-division claim to untrust everyone who had access to that claim.


/trustall player Allows a player to access ALL of your claims

/untrust player Untrusts a player from the current claim you're standing on

/untrustall player Untrusts a player from ALL of your claims

/abandonclaim Abandons the current claim you are standing on. If you're standing in a sub-division claim, your main claim won't be abandoned.

/abandonallclaims Adandons all claims owned by you. Doesn't affect claims in which you have been trusted upon.

/trustlist Shows a list of people who are trusted on the claim you're standing on
