  • cannot instantiate new region, server capacity {MAX REGION LIMIT} already reached; delete regions first
  • region {UUID} already in use by region {REGION NAME}, UUID {REGION UUID}
  • region name already in use by region {REGION NAME}, UUID {REGION UUID}
  • region location <{X},{Y}> already in use by region {REGION NAME}, UUID {REGION UUID}

  • Invalid location for region file.
  • Specified user was not found.

  • Failed to join estate.


  • When adding a region to a existing estate in the estate database, then one does not need to specify the estate owner. If the estate is does not exist or the estate exists with diffrent estate owners, then one has to use the estate_owner_uuid or estate_owner_first + estate_owner_last.
  • When using the optional persist parameter the region configs will be saved to the default region file. You can specify the file using the parameter region_file if you dont want to use the default



This example needs the RemoteAdmin PHP Class file available here.

// Including the RemoteAdmin PHP class.
// Instantiate the class with parameters identical to the Python example above
$myRemoteAdmin = new RemoteAdmin('', 9000, 'secret');
// Invoke admin_create_region (multiple parameters)
$parameters = array('region_name' => 'My Plaza', 'listen_ip' => '', 'listen_port' => '9001', 'region_x' => '1000', 'region_y' => '1000', 'estate_name' => 'My Estate');
$myRemoteAdmin->SendCommand('admin_create_region', $parameters);
