    <<reply 1987113>>


    in the jar file
    you can change the letter f to something else
    Original : "aliasesF": [

    New: "aliasesF": [
    So you would then use /a instead of /f

    I'm using Factions on my 1.6.4 pixelmon server, and it installed fine but today after a bit of a bad restart the plugin stopped working, any ideas???

    I have a problem, I have a modded MCPC+ 1.6.4 Server, with this plugin installed. But in my modpack there is also Factorization, which interfers with factions (the /f command). Is there any way to change one of the commands to /faction(s) or /factorization?

    I have had an issue I am unable to figure out yet. Maybe someone here can help me out. So the issue we have on our server is this. When a faction creates traps or people bomb into someones base and get trapped. They are ENEMIES so therefore can't teleport out or go home etc. What they are doing is Leaving their faction and then teleporting out or jumping into another faction and then teleporting out. I have tried changing the default perms for neutral etc but when you do that players are unable to use commands or edit wilderness because wilderness is an actual faction now. So my question is how do you prevent people from leaving factions or jumping factions to get out of traps or being locked in someones base etc.??

    Where in the configs can I edit it so that it costs money to claim land and not power?

    HI there on a server I saw a faction command that was /f who (factionName). I was wondering what if that was from this plugin?

    Hi all.

    I have one question, may be you can help.

    I have create a map, where Factions is activated. I want to know if it is possible to create 4 defautlt factions, and when a player join this map he can chose the one he wants using a command bloc or anything i 'll decide.

    Is there a way to create 4 default factions, and then, players can join the one he wants?
