This module can create regions in which destroyed or altered blocks will gradually be restored to their original state.

The <renewables> tag can contain any number of <renewable> tags. Each <renewable> can use a region and a filter to specify blocks to renew. If neither are specified, the renewable affects all blocks in the world.

Approximate number of blocks that will be restored per second. This rate applies to the renewable as a whole, which means the time required for any single block to renew will depend on how many other blocks are waiting to be renewed by the same renewable.
This parameter cannot be combined with .
Average time required for a block to renew. Unlike , this applies to each block individually, and blocks do not affect each other's renewal time. A renewable with an can behave very differently from a renewable with a , particularly if it is large.

By default, all blocks in the region are renewable. The <renew-filter> sub-element can be used inside the <renewable> to specify only particular blocks to renew.

The <replace-filter> element specifies which block types are allowed to be replaced by renewing blocks. Any other type of block in the renewable region will obstruct the renewal process. By default, any block can be replaced.

Normally, blocks will be restored to their exact state when the map was loaded. If some block types are specified in <shuffle-filter> element, blocks of those types in the original region will be restored to a block type chosen at random from the shuffleable types. The approximate proportions of block types from the original region will be preserved.
