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.

    I don't use the faction chat plugin but might look into it. I didn't know it was a version problem. Thanks for the help.

    How do you enable it for a certain world? It only lets me do it on the hub, and I'd rather it be on my faction map.

    I was having some trouble with the latest dev builds for craft bukkit. I kept getting a "server tick loop exception" error or something like that, i would suggest trying some of the dev builds around #3000 or so, if that doesnt fix it then i cant help you any farther than that.

    @XKXK61: Go

    Latest factions don't have faction chat. And if your using the factionchat plugin I suggest you talk to that developer of your problem.

    so if player can't build on region he can't claim the region ?

    Hey, I seem to have a problem. Whenever you talk in faction chat, it will post the message in public chat as well. If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great. I have already tried looking in config files but no luck. Thanks.
