This file isn't approved by BukkitDev yet. Use it at your own risk.

Because of recent events the future of Bukkit is unclear and the plugin approval process is paused. I will continue updating my plugins regardless and publish the downloads in links as the one above.


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.

    'FPlayerJoinEvent' is an old deprecated event. Ask the developer to update the plugin

    @CGA1123: Go

    There's not, you may want to look into the PlayerMove event, check if the chunk between from and to has changed. If it has, compare the Factions.

    Hey, just wondering does something like a TerritoryChangeEvent exist? Fired when a player moves from one territory to another(eg Wilderness -> A faction Land)

    If not, it would be nice to see this implemented!

    Hi I run bukkit build 3095 and i keep having this issue where my console just keeps getting spammed this warning and whenever it is doing that votifier/galistener stop working and i cant monitor the server from the console because it is full of that but anyways here is a screenshot of it http://postimg.org/image/6x5qy3g5x/ thanks in advance for any replies and have a nice day :)

    EDIT: I opened factions.jar with winzip and found the playerdataremove .class and .jar and deleted them now it gives me a small error on startup but the big issue seems to be gone.

    I have multiverse-core on my server and I have per plugin world on my server. Well I tried restricting factions to my factions pvp world but it still crosses over to other worlds, is there a way to restrict it to certain worlds so people can't use factions in my mini games or survival or creative mode?
