    SOLVED: You have to delete your previous player files in the world folder, to get it working if the server was previously survival!


    So I am trying to create a creative 1.8.1 server with CraftBukkit, although I am having an issue.

    Supposedly you can change the gamemode in the to 1 and it will turn to creative mode. Although when people join, they do not have any creative powers at all, it just remains normal like survival. The only way that it will work, is if I manually change their gamemodes, but what is the point in that? I thought the gamemode setting in the server properties was supposed to change this globally for everyone.

    I have tried everything, from updating to the latest CraftBukkit, to removing all the plugins, but I still end up with the same problem.......that know one has creative powers.

    Here is my file for anyone that wants to know what it looks like:
    #Minecraft server properties[/S][/S][/S]
    [S][S][S]#Tue Sep 20 03:17:44 CDT 2011[/S][/S][/S]
    [S][S][S]server-ip=-removed for security-[/S][/S][/S]
    [S][S][S]motd=Creative server

    My question is, am I missing something? Does changing the gamemode in the properties to 1 even do anything with CraftBukkit or do I have to manually give them power with /gamemode username 1?

    Thanks in advance,

    There's a file in the world's folder that is a config for this. I'm not sure which one exactly, but hopefully that gets you on the right track.

    Got it, just had to delete the player .dat files in the world folder. :)

    I think there's another file that controls creative/survival mode, but you got it solved, so good. :)
