I recently purchased a 6 slot server for me and my friends and installed Bukkit 1.0 to it. I noticed pretty quickly a big lack of monsters spawning even in really dark areas. So I checked out all the Bukkit and Plugin configs but anywhere that mentions monster spawning it is set to True. The plugins I use are Essentials, mcMMO and Lockette. When I press F3 in an SSP world it tells me that there are 200+ entities in the world (i.e monsters/animals) but when I do it on the server it only says 10 or 11 entities in the world (I have changed the setting in essentials to spawn a limit of 100 entities but it has not changed in the server), is there a reason for this? Also, monsters barely spawn in really dark areas or at night time. What could be causing this? Here is the server.properties file.
