Ranks

Parties uses an internal permission system called "ranks".
Thanks to this you can decide which rank of the party can perform a specific actions, for example you can allow only moderators to invite players or rename party.

You can edit the ranks in parties.yml at the option ranks.

By default there are three ranks: Leader, Moderator and Member.

Overview

This is an example of how ranks are configured:

ranks:
member:
level: 5
name: "Member"
chat: "&bMember"
default: true
permissions:
- party.sendmessage
- party.home
- party.desc
- party.motd
- party.claim
- party.teleport.accept
- party.teleport.deny

level: 10
name: "Moderator"
chat: "&cModerator"
inheritence: member

- party.ask.accept
- party.ask.deny
- party.invite
- party.kick
leader:
level: 20
name: "Leader"
chat: "&4&lLeader"
permissions:
- '*'

ID

ranks:
...
THIS_IS_THE_ID:
level: 5
...

The ID is used to define a rank and must be unique.

Level

...
level: 5
...

The level of a rank indicates how much important it is, higher is better.

There is only one leader and is always the highest rank.

Name and chat

...
name: "Member"
chat: "&bMember"
...

These strings can be changed into whatever you want, they do not must be the same name of the YAML node.

Name is used to refer the rank in commands.
Chat is used with the placeholder %player_rank_chat% and should be "good looking" because used in chat.

Default

...
default: true
...

This options indicates if the rank is the default one. New members will automatically be in this rank.

There is only one default rank.

Permissions

...
permissions:
- 'a.permission'
- '-a.negated.permission'
- '*'
...

This is where you insert rank permissions, all listed below.

You can negate a permission by adding at the start -.
With '*' you can add ALL permissions.

Inheritence

...
inheritence: "member"
...

You can choose to inherit all permissions from another rank, so you do not have to rewrite them all.

This is the full permissions list that you can use in ranks.

You can negate these permissions by inserting - before.

Add a new rank

To add a new rank you just have to edit the ranks list like this:

ranks:
member:
level: 5
name: "Member"
chat: "&bMember"
default: true
permissions:
...
MYNEWRANK:
level: 8
name: "My new rank"
chat: "&bMy new rank"
inheritence: member
permissions:
- 'a.permission'
moderator:
level: 10
name: "Moderator"
chat: "&cModerator"
inheritence: MYNEWRANK
permissions:
...
...

As you can see, I have added the inheritence option to avoid rewriting all permissions and changed the moderator one too.
