Recently I was checking out factions servers and to my surprise I noticed a lot of them are missing essentials plugins for factions servers. Most of them are actually running essentials plugin but that's not the end of it. Nowadays every faction server should also at least have FactionsBasics plugin that would prevent phasing and similar exploits.
Even for base factions there are plugins such as MassiveCraft Factions or MassiveFactions and FactionsUUID, FactionsOne, etc… they do all work it's just the commands that are a bit different.
Since base Minecraft mechanics are not that good when it comes to TNT, it would make sense to also load plugin like ObsidianDestroyer on your server, but in a nutshell that's it.
Full list of plugins for Minecraft servers:
- essentials (optional)
- factions (massivecraft, one or UUID)
- obsidiandestroyer or obsidianbreaker
and that should be it to get your started. It is recommended to use PaperSpigot instead of normal Spigot and properly configure it but we'll get back to that next time.
