Reservations is a plugin that provides kicking players on a full server if special players tries to join. You can use the rank system that will kick players with a lower rank, or/and the VIP system that extends the slots on a full server for VIPs. Simple, but with enough features for everyone!


  1. Open config.yml
  2. For every new VIP make a new line in ranks, and type : [PlayerName]: ' '
  3. Example:
  HomerBond005: ''
  MyPictures: ''
  Jeb: ''
  AnotherPlayerHans: ''
  1. Change the messages.
  2. Set Permissions to true if you want to use Permissions, otherwise OP-only.
  3. Set PEXRankSystem to true if you want to use the ranks from PermissionsEx. (Tutorial will follow)
  4. Edit the ranks
    1. For every player you want to set the rank add it like the following:
        TheBoss: 1
        TheCoBoss: 2
        TheModerator: 3
        TheSupporter: 4
        ThePlayer: 5
        SomeoneYouDontLike: 6
  1. Set defaultRank to the rank, that newbies will have.
  2. Save it.


You have to be OP to use the following ones or use the Permission nodes behind it!

  • /reserv list - Lists all VIPs Reservations.list
  • /reserv add <player> - Adds <player> to VIP list. Reservations.add
  • /reserv delete <player> - Deletes <player from the VIP list. Reservations.delete
  • /reserv set kickmsg <message> - Changes the message for kicking a non VIP, when a VIP joines a full server. Reservations.set.kickmsg
  • /reserv set serverfullmsg <message> - Changes the message if the server is full. Reservations.set.serverfullmsg
  • /reserv set sorrymsg <message> - Changes the message if a player can't join. Reservations.set.sorrymsg

You can use the commands /res, /reser, /reserve and /reservations if they aren't taken by other plugins (like residence).


Reservations.VIP - User(s) is(/are) VIP(s)

If you are not using PermissionsEx based ranks you can use 5 ranks as Permission that can be applied to groups and users:

  • Reservations.rank.1 -> Rank 1
  • Reservations.rank.2 -> Rank 2
  • Reservations.rank.3 -> Rank 3
  • Reservations.rank.4 -> Rank 4
  • Reservations.rank.5 -> Rank 5
  • etc.

You have to change the value for permissionBasedRanks in the config.yml to gain more ranks for the permissions. The default value is 10 that means you can add all ranks up to the permission Reservations.rank.10.

    Can you remove the rank limit?

    If /reserve add player is working and Reservations.VIP not, it is obviously a mistake in my permissions checker. I will take a look at it tomorrow. I think you are using the lastests versions of both plugins, don't you ?

    EDIT: Read the ticket closer: Yep that should be the error. So you probably have to switch to PermissionsEx. Sorry :/

    Thanks for answer. I was thinking about move from PermissionsBukkit, but PermsBukkit its easy and good for me. I have already Vault and its not working. Maybe its problem in PermissionsBukkit

    This may help:

    Try using Vault as an extra plugin. Reservations has fully Vault support and the chance is probably higher for Vault to detect the PermissionsBukkit perms. I recommend using PermissionsEx because it is the best working permissions plugin (in my opinion).

    In the plugin.yml you can find the command /reservations. The other commands are handled in another way but they all link to /reservations.
