    Hi all,

    Been playing MC for a while now; maybe a year on and off. I'm thinking of putting together a server for some friends. I have used CraftBukkit in the past as an offline/local test server during LAN parties. Now I'm thinking I want to go all-out. Probably a whitelist at first and then transition to a greylist/blacklist later on.

    After looking at some ideas for my server, someone suggested McMMO. It looks pretty cool for what it is. But I was wondering about adding more plugins to the server to help out with admin or to extend play.

    As of now, I'm just looking at setting up a MySQL server to log players' progress and maybe crafting some sort of Ruby or Python HTML page to pull those stats and give players a scoreboard.

    Is anyone using McMMO with additional plugins?

    If so, what plugins and why did you choose them?

    What are the *core* plugins required to keep the server from getting trashed/griefed/overloaded?

    Thanks for reading.

    Core? CommandBook, LogBlock, WorldEdit, PermissionsBukkit, WorldGuard...

    Some of those seem to do the same thing. LogBlock seems pretty nice, but it seems like WorldEdit does something similar?


    I know *where* to find plugins. I just wanted to know *what* plugins are good for a public/semi-public server.

    Nope, WorldEdit is a totally different beast.

    Worldedit: Edits and manages total controllabity over editing world contect, chunks, blocks etc. also allows you to copy and paste and even save schematics and paste schemattics.

    Okay. That makes sense. But, if I'm running a RPG world, why would I want to do that? My main focus would be to run a fair McMMO server. LogBlock can let me roll-back griefing, but what reason would I want to copy-paste structures or edit blocks?

    Please forgive the newbie questions.

    Thanks all.

    For the fun of having my balls busted, use the Essentials plugin.

    If you really want to customize your RPG experience, look at the Heroes plugin. It replaced mcMMO on my server completely.
