    I was wondering what you would recommend for plugins for a pretty basic yet fun server ;) . I can't have to many or things that take a lot of processing or memory. Ill try to keep this area updated with the plugins i have. Also it would be VERY helpful if you could say what they do and link to them. Thank you:)!​
    Current Plugins.
    1. MultiVerse-Core
    2. MultiInv
    3. Buycraft
    4. Buycraft announcer
    5. Essentials
    6. iConomy
    7. PermissionsBukkit
    8. Prefixer

    Looking for.
    • A Sign Warp Plugin(that u can make people pay to teleport)

    SkyBlock? SurvivalGames? PvP/MobArena's?

    Those are some pretty fun plugins. They work best when you got a group of people playing.

    Regenerates the terrain after a set period of time. So you still have to fear them coming but not be afraid of them destroying stuff permanently :) personally one of my favorite plugins.

    Dont forget Warp Signs – It can have warp signs with permissions, ChestShop, Vault, PlotMe (You can sell plots) and I recommend PermissionsEx – Has lots of features and works great!

    falcon2_0 i downloaded a lot of permissions stuff and i kinda liked permissionsbukkit . what is the advantages of PermissionsEx? Also if i install warp signs do i have to install the others for those functionality?

    • i'm removing multiinv it is not working the way i need it to any other suggestions i dont what ppl taking items from the creative world.

    crushh87 sounds interesting :)

    you dont need another plugin for warp signs, essentials does that, see config.
    as for banning TNT, blacklist it in essentials config.yml.

    As for a region-selling plugin I would recommend to you one of my plugins - RegionForSale. It works with WorldEdit/WorldGuard. Another similar plugin would be Simple Region Market, but I can't tell you much about that, as I don't use it myself. If you're looking for something 'bigger' (a whole world only consisting of plots) you could take a glimpse at PlotMe.

    i used WorldGuard/WorldEdit to ban TNT... i tried to use Essentials to ban /op commond... it didn't work... luckily WorldGuard/WorldEdit was able to ban that command... it just won't ban other commands, unfortunately.


    i use this... one of the best features about PEX is the debug command to help you find permission nodes.

    /pex toggle debug
    /pex user Europia79 toggle debug
    it's supposed to list what nodes it checks for... unfortunately, it hasn't been working as well as it once did... Take for exmaple, when i do /time day... it will just output "" but if you already have essentials.time.set THEN it will display those nodes... quite unfortunate, but if it gets fix, it will be a powerful tool for you. (i don't think bPermissions has a debug command like this).

    Another thing that i've done with PEX vs bPermissions... is the way they're setup... bPerm (if i remember correctly) has a file for each player, while PEX has all one file total... with all users in the same file.

    There are advantages & disadvantages of doing it either way... With the one file method, it's really easy to FIND & REPLACE... example: SEARCH for Member and REPLACE with Default to demote all Members to the Guest rank (default)... For a complete feature list, goto

    On the flip side of the coin, more + smaller files is probably more efficient... And the whole reason i had to investigate other plugins in the first place is because PEX isn't updated very often (once in a blue moon... but luckily, it doesn't break... only break i can think of about PEX is that inheritance did break a while back... not a huge deal since you can copy and paste really quickly: that's what i did at least... not sure if inheritance ever got fixed ???) On the other hand, bPermissions is updated quite frequently.

    Unfortunately, i cannot comment on PermissionsBukkit... i can only end this by saying that PEX commands are very nice:
    /pex user Europia79 group set Member
    /pex group Member add essentials.sethome
    /pex group Member add -essentials.sethome MiningWorld
    /pex group Member add essentials.kit.AK47 PVPworld
    /pex group Member add essentials.gamemode CreativeWorld
    /pex user Europia79 prefix "&4[Admin]&c "
    VS bPermissions
    /exec u:Europia79 a:setgroup v:Member
    /exec g:Member a:addperm v:essentials.sethome w:world
    /exec g:Member a:addperm v:^essentials.sethome w:MiningWorld
    /exec g:Member a:addperm v:essentials.kit.AK47 w:PVPworld
    /exec g:Member a:addperm v:essentials.gamemode w:CreativeWorld
    /user Europia79
    /user meta prefix "&4[Admin]&c "

    @Europia79i think im going to stay with permissions bukkit i can configure ppls personal perms alomng with group wide terms and i can do this in and out of game.
    also the Commands seem nicer in-game
    and my admins are able to easily use it and have used it before :). i might test it for a bit but idk right now. Thank you very mush for explaining it! as for the nodes i am perfectly fine with finding them i am reading the wikis and every thing i can about the plugins so i can use them as well as i can

    @!Phoenix! thank you ill look into those :) i want to have a creative world were people can pay for plots so that only they can build there.

    i want a few new ways for people to get money on my server.i want them to get money for
    • PvP matches
    • killing mobs.
    • Team matches
    • and over time interest.
    is there one plugin that does all this? i dont want to install many separate plugins for this

    Actually, i don't think there's anything wrong with finding multiple plugins... Small plugins that really focus on a particular job (and do that job well) are probably better than one large, bulky plugin that tries to do TOO MUCH.

    I'm not a plugin developer, but i think a lot of the devs will agree with that assessment (from what i read of their posts). Correct me if i'm wrong, but a bunch of smaller plugins could potential take up the same or even less memory than one large, bulky plugin ? (for the most part) Of course, i can see a scenario where the opposite is actually true... Also, with a bigger plugin, it seems like there are more "points of failure"... more ways for things to potentially go wrong.

    I guess it's like my English professor in college used to say: "Know your audience. Know your purpose. And stay focused."

    So you'll probably need one for killing mobs. A 2nd for interest (most economy plugins do this). And a 3rd for PvP. (Sorry, but what's the difference between PvP matches and Team matches ?)

    PEX has many feature like giving people permissions and ranks for a certain time and is very secure. You go into essentials config and find it and if you find a good inventory switch plugin please tell me! And also if you get PEX also get SetrankPEX

    I would get NoCheatPlus and a plugin like LogBlock so you can find X-Rayers and rollback Greif

    i'm not worried about grief the wild world is just for gathering resources while the plotMe world allows you to build in peace.

    but blocking and catching cheaters would be good. i heard about something called orebusificate any one know about that?

    ill update my plug-ins list latter :)will the new ones i have.
    All ready done :) it is much easier now. i can like the Min world,Wild,and the plotme world so that ppl can always have there stuff! I dont know if it separates creative and survival yet... took me a while to get to the point it is at ;).
    I'm really liking permissions bukkit i have not found anything wrong with it so far but if something does i think i would next try PEX or EGM(Essentials Group Manager). and is great it take a bit of time i recommend reading there pages first then use the help command to guide you though the process. anyway as i said ill update the list when im on my computer! thx guys for all your current help and i'm still open for new ideas.

    Looking For:
    A simple command list for vip or donators. (they get confused when remembering all the commands. and vip commands does not work)
