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.

    <-- slightly pissed off.  I know you guys don't make money on this, but so many servers depend upon Factions.  Ever since you switched to MCore, things have been horrible.  Heck, I can't even find a single chat plugin anymore that allows a faction tag to be put in its place.  I really wish you guys hadn't changed everything - in addition to making servers rely on a 1.6 MEG file in memory just to run your plugin (and having to wait EVERY patch for it and your plugins to be updated).   :(

    MCore is currently broken for versions 1.7.8 and 1.7.9 due to the UUID Update. This is why factions is not working on versions 1.7.8/1.7.9. If you want an updated version of MCore check out this video below.

    You could make a faction and edit tags so it is perm, you can build no mobs, ect. Use /f tag and it should prompt you with the rest :)

    I got a problem.

    I mark shop regions with worldguard.

    But: I can't leave the shop arena as wilderness since people can claim it then I can't leave it as safezone since then they can't build.

    Know anyway get this to work?

    Every restart, two files of two players (ever the same players) disappear from the folder, and the players get out from the faction they were. I'm using Factions 2.3.1 and MCore 7.1.0
