This file isn't approved by BukkitDev yet. Use it at your own risk.

Because of recent events the future of Bukkit is unclear and the plugin approval process is paused. I will continue updating my plugins regardless and publish the downloads in links as the one above.


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.

    How do i instal the patch for Spigot #1649 ? I tried it but it's buggy on my server. All players still belong to their faction but they can't interact with their claim anymore. It's strange. When I do /f f <faction>, the faction lists are still complete (nobody was kicked) but the plugin acts like the players weren't in their faction.

    What I've done : Replacing the 1.1MB jar file from old faction by the new one (450kB). I did the same with MassiveCore.

    Why a so massive difference in size between the patch and the old jar file ?

    Ensure your'e using 1.7.10, and you will find the configuration files in the mstore folder above the plugins folder.

    Disable PerWorldPlugin on Factions and MassiveCore

    @Cooki3MonsterHD: Go

    Not sure this is currently supported.

    @KevinEssence: Go

    According to that data, I think the real worry is McMMO, also pay attention to "mobSpawn" .. in-fact, according to that information - floAuction is being more intensive..

    I can see that EntityExplodeEvent is being used a lot inside Factions - maybe you need to address this yourself, and find out how is abusing explosions?

    @Dillzzzzz: Go

    It's a custom plugin, make a GitHub feature request and it may be dug up in the future.

    @saxons12: Go

    Did you update MassiveCore?

    Hi, getting spammed with this error message in the console: http://pastebin.com/cT4H2AZ3 Any idea to solve the problem?

    So I was wondering how do I disable Wilderness, Safezone, Warzone, and Faction names from appearing in chat. I want players to use /f map on to find bases to raid. I want it so it doesn't say Wilderness, Safezone, Warzone, and Faction names when they over the zone.

    I have a bukkit server and I have factions installed. In the factions config I set chatSetFormat to true but it makes weird simbols around the faction name. :(

    There is a factions that is almost exactly like yours over on Spigot and since I got in trouble for doing almost the same thing I figure I should pay it forward...(I actually made an advertisement for a freinds plugin to persuade him to share his resourceon Spigot)...Check this out..http://www.spigotmc.org/threads/factions-1-8-2-uuid.29361/page-2#post-333664

    Likely a custom plugin they made.
