    Hello, after me needing some plugins for my server and getting no response and not able to find any videos or web pages, so i've decided to make my own. But I need to know what to get (already got Eclipse) and also, what language or what not should I study to learn how to do this?

    Might I ask which plugins you were looking for? I may be able to assist you in finding them.

    It is good that you've already gotten Eclipse - lots of people use that to write plugins.

    Bukkit plugins are made using a programming language called Java.

    There are lots of tutorials on YouTube on how to create different basic plugins, and after learning some of those you can combine that code and learn how to make more advanced plugins!

    Here are some videos that you should definitely check out if you're wanting to learn to code:

    Pogostick29Dev is one of my favourite YouTubers for plugin tutorials, he has 80 episodes so far for Bukkit plugin coding! Heres's the playlist:

    TheBCBroz is another YouTuber that does Bukkit plugin tutorials, you can check out his playlist of tutorials here:

    There are a lot more YouTube tutorials on programming. If you ever need help with something more specific then you can head over to and create a thread there.

    If there's anything else you need to know, just ask and I'll try my best to help!

    Make sure you are learning at least the very basics of Java programming first, before messing around with bukkit API. It will be more trouble than it's worth launching straight into plugin development without having an understanding of the language itself. Many of the YouTube bukkit plugin tutorials will make very little sense without prior Java knowledge as they focus on bukkit API and assume you already understand Java.

    Ok then. The plugin that I needed was one that changes a player skin when they join a game, e.g:
    There are 2 teams, Red & Blue
    Red teams skin changes to red, and blue changes to blue. I know you can do this I have seen it on servers.
    And yes, sometimes the videos to not make sense in me, so I was told to first get the understanding of variables etc, so I went to and I learned a bit on Python, so I do know strings and variables etc, but I'm only a beginner. I will also check the videos out and see. Thankyou for responding.
