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.

    Once I've put the faction and mcore jars in the plugin folder and restart the server, nothing happens and no new files appears, how can I fix that ? I'm also getting: INFO Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.massivecraft.factions.Conf.

    @Meta_Cz: Go

    I can't remove/edit my previous comment so...

    I found on my own how to solve this problem. I found it in MCore. It seems like it's the only onw plugin that uses colored text in console. But it's pretty : )

    My own server, but it's in Czech language, not in English.
    Stats of server: Dynybe

    Also see my own plugin that allows you to create your own /help pages

    Can you please help me? :)

    I can't figurate out how did you colored text in console.

    Ex: [Factions 2.3.0] === ENABLE START ===

    It's colored and I have no idea how did you make it :/

    Please tell me :D Thank you :)

    I'm having troubles with installing the Factions Plugin. I'll install Mcore and it'll work all fine. Once I go into FTP, and upload Factions, the server will crash when I /reload it or restart it. It won't turn back on unless I remove Factions. Can anyone tell/help me? It's becoming really annoying.

    Can anyone tell me where is the config for edit the Losse of power when a player is offline??

    If there are no config for that, I mean when the player is offline he never losse power, this is a FAIL of plugin, because The ppl can abuse and have 1000 pwoer witrh a lot of chars + The funny is RAID and no one can raid if no one losse power

    Please add the config for Losse power, like every 8 hours the chracter is offline = -1 Power.

    "taskPlayerPowerUpdateMinutes": 1.0, "taskPlayerDataRemoveMinutes": 5.0, "taskEconLandRewardMinutes": 20.0, "removePlayerDataWhenBanned": true, "removePlayerDataAfterInactiveDays": 20.0, "radiusClaimFailureLimit": 9, "radiusClaimRadiusLimit": 5,

    Can anyone explain this? please!
