RoyalCommands was originally intended to be a small plugin with few commands, but after realizing that I can make many commands from other plugins better, I expanded to make it a large, all-encompassing, general plugin (160+ commands). It will manage your server extremely well. RoyalCommands is my main project, and I add to it quite often. Check for updates often, as it's not uncommon for several new commands to be added quickly. If you have any suggestions or bug reports, post a comment or check out the contact section.

RoyalCommands fully supports VanishNoPacket, a wonderful choice for admin invisibility. Invisible players are not seen in /list, and commands will tell the sender that the vanished player is not online.

RoyalCommands also supports TagAPI, another beautiful creation from mbaxter, which allows plugins to change the name displayed over a player's head. This is used (optionally) for nicknames.


I've listed just a few of the features contained in RoyalCommands below.

  • Easy to configure
  • Fully featured auto-afk system with kick option.
  • Completely developed ban, tempban, and kick system with support for IPs (and the ability to look up who banned and why)
  • Teleportation suite with /back and requests
  • Fully developed home and warp systems
  • Inventory management - including /give, /item, and selective clear inventory and full clear inventory (also modify other players' inventories)
  • A warning system to complement ban and kick
  • Open enchanting tables, furnaces, and workbenches via command
  • Get masses of information on players (including IPs) - even if they're offline
  • Freeze, mute, jail, and other punishments for rowdy players
  • Check the amount of server lag
  • Set up kits of items
  • Advanced whisper system
  • Integration with VanishNoPacket - use commands on other players if you can see them!
  • TagAPI integration - nicknames change your nametag!
  • Monitor players as if you were them! See what they see in real time
  • Open and use a backpack to save valuable items.
  • Developed, working, useful plugin manager - load, update, view info, and more!
  • Download plugins from BukkitDev and load them in-game (dev build)!
  • Determine if a player has paid for Minecraft or is using a cracked account.
  • WorldGuard & LWC integration for item creation via the plugin
  • Change world biomes
  • System of VIP players that can join the server when it's full
  • Manage all worlds and separate inventories based on groups of worlds (replaces most other world manager features!)
  • Much, much more. You can see all the commands here.

Commands & Permissions

I do not support the use of PermissionEx! RoyalCommands will work with PEX, but I will not offer support if you use it. If you would like to know why, take a look at this document by mbaxter that explains more.

All commands and permissions are listed here.

Note that the dev build commands will be included on that page, though.

When will you update to X?

From 0.2.7 and forward, the whole plugin has been written so that it is forwards-compatible, meaning that there may be no updates for when new versions of Minecraft/CraftBukkit are released. There is no need for a new version, as the current one will work just fine.

Source and Downloads

The source code on GitHub is available with compiling instructions. It follows the GNU GPLv3 license. Please refer to me if you fork it.

Development builds of this project can be acquired at the provided continuous integration server. These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk. Continuous Integration.

The changelog is also available.


If you're interested in converting from another plugin, please check here. Only CommandBook and Essentials are supported at this time. Others are being worked on, but we need more data to make the converters. If you have data for us to work with, please check out the contact section.

Statistics collection

RoyalCommands utilizes Hidendra's PluginMetrics (MCStats) to collect data on plugin usage. All data that is available to me is also available to you here. All data sent is anonymous and not personal. If you do not want to send data to MCStats, please opt-out in the PluginMetrics folder in your plugins folder.

I've sunk hundreds of hours into writing this plugin. Some of these hours come from managing support tickets, some come from helping people, some come from adding features, and most of them come from bettering the plugin altogether. If you would like to thank me for my efforts, I would appreciate it immensely. If you're unable to send five or ten dollars, then let me know how I'm doing. Feedback means a lot!

If you like the plugin and want to thank me, or if you just want to buy me a Red Bull (or help me pay the bills), consider donating.

Still curious about why you should donate? See drtshock's blog post about the topic. Essentially, public plugin developers (like myself) work for free, attempt to accommodate custom requests, and pour our hearts and souls into our projects, and the server owners that use them rake in profit, and the developers see no share. It's sad.


Run RoyalCommands on your server? PM me with the name and address (and a note if you want), and I'll list it here!

Of course, there's the server it was made for:

    Yeah, I was going to tell you to remove TagAPI. I may have a faulty implementation of it, but it isn't supported in 1.8, so removing it will fix the problem.


  • Avatar of actionforgames actionforgames Dec 02, 2014 at 18:17 UTC - 0 likes

    Here it is:, aha I found a problem. Make sure you notify all users of this plugin to delete TagAPI that is no longer supported in 1.8, thanks for helping me.

    No, it doesn't. Please post the full startup log. It's usually in logs/latest.log.

  • Avatar of actionforgames actionforgames Dec 01, 2014 at 17:26 UTC - 0 likes

    Here it is: should I delete config file? No even after I deleted config. In startup seems like everything suppost to work alright but when I type any command from your plugin it returns as Unknown command. Does this plugin requires any additional plugins?

    Make sure it's in your plugins folder? Give me the whole startup log. Being on IRC would be helpful. I have tested it, and another server owner has tested it, and 257 works fine on Spigot 1.8.

    Sory for being such an ass. I just wanted to tell you that I am using this Plugin as my main plugin of whole server is based on it. So I might get angry from time to time. But thanks for updating it. I have updated it to 4.10, 257, And I still can't find it working. I tryed to use "/spawn" and it returns me with "Unknown command..." I have stopped, updated, restarted, server. So I don't know what the problem is, this is the console message but I don't know if have anything to do with this plugin:

    This build should work for all of you Spigot 1.8 people.

    " BTW This plugin does not work with spogit 1.8 (Which probably means it doesn't work with 1.8 at all)"

    This is the most faulty reasoning I've ever seen.

    I'm actually fixing things locally for the dev builds. I'll be testing it and will link to it when it's ready.

    @actionforgames: Go

    The library I currently use to display "fancy" messages (JSON-based) requires something in CraftBukkit, so it doesn't currently work with Spigot's 1.8 (which I don't support). I will fix it to work with Spigot once Fanciful, the aforementioned library, is updated. For now, using versions without Fanciful in them will fix the plugin for Spigot. This is the latest, compatible dev build that will work for Spigot 1.8.

    If too much time passes without a fix, I will either attempt to fix Fanciful myself, or I will remove my usage of it, which would be a pain, but it's better than a broken plugin.

    If you have any questions, let me know.
