Factions Logotype

Factions Logotype


This plugin allows you to create your own faction. The more followers a faction has the more land the faction can claim. The risk for griefing is low in claimed land since only the faction followers can build there. Factions can forge alliances and declare themselves enemies with others. Land may be taken from other factions through war.

    I've looked for quite a few days now and searched the internet but could not find the answer, what file do I go into to allow players to open chests and doors etc in other factions' claimed land?

    Hello, If I give a permission factions.leave: true (i tried false too) player can leave from his faction anyway. How to make player can't leave from faction?

    @CaptainJordan23: Go

    Update Factions, you're using the newest MassiveCore (rename from MCore to MassiveCore) and an old version of Factions.

    Ensure to use CB 1.7.10 not 1.7.9

    @BuklaooPvP: Go

    Upgrade to 2.0, 1.x isn't supported anymore. Yikes.

    @WitherFire: Go

    Detail your issues more, or no one will be able to help you ...

    @aka_teh1337: Go

    You're probably looking for the folder plugins/Factions/.. but what you're looking for is actually the mstore/ folder outside of the plugins directory.

    @thetoohardstyle: Go

    Let's be polite, some people are new to this plugin, and not understanding this system is one of the reasons people are scared to upgrade from 1.x to 2.x! :)
