Bssentials - Updated Essentials

Essentials for 1.8 - 1.16

  Bssentials is a replacement for the old Essentials plugin
Also, if your switching from Essentials/EssentialsX then your old permissions will continue to work!



Why use Bssentials instead of EssentialsX?‚Äč

Essentials was created 8 years ago, and the code base is a mess. So such a mess with unnecessary code, that it took EssentialsX a long time for the 1.13 changes. Essentials is also filled with performance issues & bad practices.

Remaking Essentials from the ground up also gives us the ability for better performance / less resource-intensive, with newer functionally.

The EssentialsBridge provides support for the Essentials API.
The “EssentialsBridge” is a compatibility layer between the Essentials API & Bssentials. Plugins like Vault, ChestShop, GroupManager, EssentialsChat, and others that depend on Essentials will work with Bssentials with out any modifications to them if you use the EssentialsBridge
