    Frequently Requested Plugins

    After spending several weeks on the Bukkit Plugin Requests you tend to notice a lot of similar requests. So before posting, check here to see if what you want is already available!

    • Anti-[Insert Hacked Client here] - These plugins are practically impossible. Unless you know how to stop them, just stick with NoCheat to lessen the effects of Hacked Clients. No, you cannot have a -login because you can change the '-' in any Hacked Client configuration.
    • Automatic Ranking - This is a plugin that will automatically rank people up depending on the amount of time they have spent on the server. They can also involve how much money a player has. The plugin I'd recommend for this is CommandsEX. You can get the whole plugin, or just pick the timed ranking from the builder page. Also try out MasterPromote for other things like passwords... Although if you just want timed automatic ranking, check out AutoRank. On the note of timed things. OnTime is brilliant for all things timed, from Ranks to in game money!
    • Seperate Worlds - Any type of plugin that manages world related things is covered by this. Some example requests are: Gamemode per world, Portals to other worlds, Seperate Inventories per world and more. For this, and more, you need a world management plugin like MyWorlds or MultiVerse
    • Block Protection - Very common request. There are a whole load of these plugins! Here are just a few, pick the one that suits what you need: WorldGuard, EpicZones and Residence. More can be found with a quick search
    • Skills - Any plugin that gives people levels depending on what they do (for example, Mining skill that goes up on blocks mined) comes under this. Most of these RPG plugins are heavily customisable too! McMMO and Skillz are the most popular
    • Classes/Clans - A way of grouping your players. Classes and clans are also very similar to the Skills category above. Although these are often a lot lighter than player grouping plugins, they are certainly all brilliant. The ones that I have come across are Heroes (which has skills included!) and SimpleClans
    • Prevent breaking of [Insert block here] - Although it is easy to create a plugin that does this, you can just save time and invest in PEX's ModifyWorld. Although if you don't use PermissionsEX just add the block to WorldGuard's Blacklist!
    • Hunger Games - There are so, so many of these. Just a quick search will return loads! If one doesn't have what you want, then there will be others that will! Looking for a good map though? Check out the Survival Games Series
    • Custom Commands - If you want command /bob to display hello or /paul to do the same as /help you do not need complicated code to do this! Just using Commander for the commands and MCDocs for text! Easy!
    • Ban crafting of [Insert item here] - Another common request. Again use PEX's ModifyWorld for this! If you find that too complicated then you should have a look at NoItem. It's pretty good...
    • Custom World Generation - Any plugin that changes the way your world is generated is included under this. Your best bet is to first play about with TerrainControl. The potential of this plugin is absolutely tremendous. However if you really are stumped and no one in the TerrainControl Forums can help you, then post your request here.
    • Custom Triggers and Scripts - Any plugin that does something when you step or click on a block is defined here. This potential of plugins like this is outstanding. The only one of these out there at the moment is this brilliant VariableTriggers. It allows you to execute custom script (or commands) when someone right clicks or steps on any block.
    Only if you are 110% sure you have a unique idea, post the request. Make sure to follow the Plugin Request Formatting Guidelines for a better chance of it being made. Oh and don't forget to tag me cause I develop plugins too!​

    Great post!
    Now lets hope they read it...

    I was thinking we need something like this stickied... There's been a lot of requests lately (some in the same day!) for the same thing.

    Yeah... If it even stops just one person requesting another automatic ranking plugin then it's a success!

    You and I both know that the Bukkit/request section will never read a sticky post. Hint the amount of people that actually format their request...

    Um, I don't know what I'm trying to explain to you anymore. Obviously this is being taken a lot farther than anticipated. I wasn't trying to harm you. I'm saying not many people actually read sticky posts in the Bukkit Request section. What else can possibly be understood by this. And by "proving my own point" you mean you clarifying what my point actually meant then yes. Unless of course your trolling, haha.

    Wait, you said:
    I answered:
    I meant that there are a lot of people that format plugin request posts. Therefore a lot of people do read the stickys. Sorry if I may have caused offence.

    Thanks :)

    Good job, kezz101. I'm nowhere near being a plugin developer, or even having basic knowledge about Java (yet), but it's still good to see this. Over the past few weeks, I've seen tons of Anti-Nodus-type requests.

    I'm not a plugin developer. I just go around telling people the plugins they should use. :p

    How about a plugin just to spawn a single mob?
    There are a ton of those out there too.
    I hope this gets stickied, too

    kezz101

    Ah right... What sort of plugins do that then?

    gorbb

    off the top of my head, essentials has a /spawnmob command (and commandbook), worldguard can block mob spawning in an area.
    also weather plugins, like different weather in an area, i don't think that can be done (but I'm here to be proven wrong), and essentials/commandbook can easily change the weather.
