Challenge accepted. Give me the IP and coordinates.

Encasing your house in stone seems a good idea. Or maybe find a server with the Zeppelin mod installed and make a flying castle. Now, which movie was that from?
At any rate, stone isn't going to save you. At all. Why? Because it takes anyone a few
minutesseconds to make a pickaxe.

How about making it underground where nobody would think it would be? I don't think a griefer would waste their time digging down and finding a base just smack in the middle, so making it underground would be nice.
Any griefer worth his salt has X-Ray textures, so hiding your goodies underground isn't going to protect them at all.

Only 2 and 5 will be effective on another person's server. But the creepers will always get you no matter where you build or who you are.
My hole-in-the-ground shelter begs to differ.

...I built a huge mansion made out of legit gold blocks and wood.
Now I realize that I'll never be as great as you. Never.
Gold is a thoroughly worthless element anyway.

I'd have to disagree with the effectiveness of Method 3.
Lets put it this way;
If your server is whitelisted, griefers are going to avoid you.
If your server is private, and only your friends play on it, there's nobody to grief you. If your "friends" would grief you then they aren't your friends- and you're a dumbass for believing they're your friends.
I see no loopholes, as long as the server owner exhibits common sense.

I have an amazing idea, for- everybody...
Troll a thread, made by somebody with a Team Fortress 2 avatar on. Because Gmod is laggier/ than- minecraft.
Also trolling my thread would only bring me lulz.

I played 8 months on a hundred twenty seven slot hardcore pvp server. Lemme tell you, there is no way to build an ungreifable building. There's always a way. Always.
Note the "<100% effective".
Aug 12, 2012Paranoid about griefers? Had a bad experience? Don't worry, there's a way to avoid griefing. And they're surprisingly effective.Posted in: Survival Mode
Method 1: Don't play multiplayer (100% effective)
Now I know what you're thinking; you're thinking that you LIKE multiplayer. And you want to continue playing it for the experience of having lots of people in your world. But more often than not I encounter players who join SMP servers and keep entirely to themselves- they don't interact with anyone. So essentially they're playing Single Player, but with the hazard of being griefed. If this applies to you, stay the hell off of multiplayer. Don't paint a target on your creations and then get mad when someone defaces it.
Method 2: Move far away from spawn (<100% effective)
Griefers always look for easy targets. The easier your structure is to find, the easier it is to be griefed. So which building is easier to find? The elaborate castle built 100 blocks from spawn? Or the cleverly hidden fortress 5,000 blocks Southeast from spawn?
Method 3: Control who plays your server (100% effective)
By 'control' I mean either password your server, host it over Hamachi to only a trusted group of friends, or whitelist it. And by friends I mean personal friends; someone who you actually know. Not some asshole you met on the internet; chances are he'd grief you too. Griefers avoid whitelisted servers like the plague. Why waste their time on a waiting list when they could find some pub server to wreck? The easiest way to control griefing is to control who plays on your server. I've been saying this **** for years; people who listen to me have positive outcomes.
Method 4: Plug-ins (<100% effective)
So you've decided to ignore the previous 3 methods for whatever reason. Your only choice now is to rape the game with a million plugins that disable everything fun. That means no fire, TNT or breaking of certain blocks in certain zones. It might also mean ridiculous plug-ins like McBans- while that might keep griefers away, it bans more innocent players than guilty ones. While I personally would never play on your server if you enabled stupid features like this, I'm certain there's someone who would. However, some plug-ins can be exploited and bypassed. So this method is not only annoying, but also potentially faulty.
Method 5: Be a griefer (100% effective) <- Author's choice
Nobody can grief you if you have nothing to lose. Travel light, build nothing, and destroy everything.
Use the information in this guide responsibly. Or don't. I don't give a ****.
