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.

    How do I add more than one world to WorldsNoClaiming without having that part of the config reset?

    Whenever I try to add more than one world to "WorldsNoClaiming" it will reset that part of the config... It seems like I can only add one world to WorldsNoClaiming

    Can anyone please tell me how I can add more than one world to WorldsNoClaiming??

    Hi, I'm just wondering, is there a way to turn off the 10 second delay on /f home?

    If not, I suggest that this feature be added somewhere in the configuration.

    The version 1.6.2 of Factions still don't work on the server, also with MCore. It says this: " [GRAVE] Could not load 'plugins/mcore.jar' in folder 'plugins' org.bukkit.plugin.InvalidPluginException: java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/massivecraft/mcore/MCore : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0 at org.bukkit.plugin.java.JavaPluginLoader.loadPlugin(JavaPluginLoader.java:184) at org.bukkit.plugin.SimplePluginManager.loadPlugin(SimplePluginManager.java:305) at org.bukkit.plugin.SimplePluginManager.loadPlugins(SimplePluginManager.java:230) at org.bukkit.craftbukkit.v1_6_R2.CraftServer.loadPlugins(CraftServer.java:239) at org.bukkit.craftbukkit.v1_6_R2.CraftServer.<init>(CraftServer.java:217) at net.minecraft.server.v1_6_R2.PlayerList.<init>(PlayerList.java:56) at net.minecraft.server.v1_6_R2.DedicatedPlayerList.<init>(SourceFile:11) at net.minecraft.server.v1_6_R2.DedicatedServer.init(DedicatedServer.java:106) at net.minecraft.server.v1_6_R2.MinecraftServer.run(MinecraftServer.java:391) at net.minecraft.server.v1_6_R2.ThreadServerApplication.run(SourceFile:582) Caused by: java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/massivecraft/mcore/MCore : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0 at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass1(Native Method) at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClassCond(ClassLoader.java:631) at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass(ClassLoader.java:615) at java.security.SecureClassLoader.defineClass(SecureClassLoader.java:141) at java.net.URLClassLoader.defineClass(URLClassLoader.java:283) at java.net.URLClassLoader.access$000(URLClassLoader.java:58) at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:197) at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:190) at org.bukkit.plugin.java.PluginClassLoader.findClass0(PluginClassLoader.java:80) at org.bukkit.plugin.java.PluginClassLoader.findClass(PluginClassLoader.java:53) at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:306) at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:247) at java.lang.Class.forName0(Native Method) at java.lang.Class.forName(Class.java:249) at org.bukkit.plugin.java.JavaPluginLoader.loadPlugin(JavaPluginLoader.java:173) ... 9 more "

    The same of the plugin factions.. If I use faction 1.5.2 on a 1.6.2 server it works, but not the permissions... why? Resolve please! :)

    Just to say, I figured it out through my own experimentations, but thanks anyone who was going to help. I'm so sorry if this is documented and it is of my ignorance, but may I have some sort of help with displaying the faction tag in chat? All I have found does not work. To assist, we use Essentials with Essentials Chat, factions and factionsplus.

    Guides I have found and your documentation told me to set certain config options to true and in the essentials config, set the chat format to like {faction_name}{DisplayName} All it shows in the chat is [faction_name]username instead of like [Avalon]username.... any insight is helpful.

    thanks much, JonnyxCelay

    After the 1.6.2 update to this plugin, it is as useless as ever. I'm switching to towny.
