Colony Border System

Colonies have an area of claimed chunks (16x16 block areas) around them. Upon colony creation, a colony claims chunks in a square around it. The radius is set with the config setting initialColonySize (default 4x4 chunks).

Those claims are protected from modification through other players. See the Colony Protection System page for more information.

Extending your claim area can be done by building huts. Huts claim a square area around them after they are built, expanding all sides from the chunk the hutblock is located in. How much they claim depends on the building. They won’t claim over the max range, set with the config setting maxColonySize (default 20x20 chunks).

Removing a building removes the chunks it claimed. The colony’s initial claim radius is excluded from this.
