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.

    Hi. I have this guest system on my server, so people can visit my server, but not leave spawn. I have one problem, the guests can make factions, use the faction commands etc. I can't remove the faction permissions from the Guest rank, because it is default with factions. So how can I restrict a group the access to all faction commands, and features? Thanks!

    So what was the logic behind removing FactionsChat and WorldGuard support?

    The config isn't in the factions file anymore, where your world and plugin folders are, there's a folder called mstore, go into that then go into factions_mconf folder and vwalah. Hope this helped. =)

    Hmm, where's the actual config located? Because Factions -> Config.json is only this:

      "baseCommandAliases": [
      "dburi": "default"

    Is there a way to make it so the default faction for new players (Wilderness) has a fac tag? Like when you create a faction and it has [ <faction name>], is there a way to make it say [+ Wilderness] by default for the wilderness? Please reply!

    Allies and Members can edit terrain etc. Truced and Recruits can not. This is thought through design. Stop screaming kid.
