If you're wanting to know general claiming command, click here.


First, while holding your golden shovel in your hand, you put the shovel into subdivision mode with the command /subdivideclaim.

To create the subdivision: Right click the shovel at one corner of the area you wish to subdivide, and again at the opposite corner (as if you were making a new claim around it, note that subdividing a claim does not use any additional claim blocks) You will then see the area outlined in wool and iron blocks.

  • When you have the area subdivided, you simply stand inside it and can use /trust as if you were trusting someone in a full claim. This will only give them access to the subdivided claim that you were in.
  • If you trust someone within one of your subdivisions, they will only be able to build/access containers in that subdivision. Or if you have subdivisions on a claim and /trust someone outside of the subdivision they can build everywhere but the subdivisions.

To remove the subdivision: Stand inside the sub-claim and type /abandonbandonclaim as normal. You can't remove the larger main claim when it's subdivided with the /abandonclaim command. If you want to delete the main claim the command changes to /abandontoplevelclaim which deletes the main claim and all subdivisions.
