Why you should use it

EssentialsX provides several performance enhancements and fixes that are currently not available in Essentials and Spigot-Essentials, most importantly fixed mob spawner support for 1.8+ servers. See the wiki for details.

EssentialsX is almost a completely drop-in replacement for Essentials. However, it has different requirements:

  • EssentialsX requires Vault to enable chat prefix/suffixes and group support if you have a supported permissions plugin.
  • If you have an unsupported permissions plugin but still wish to use wildcards, enable use-bukkit-permissions in the configuration. Otherwise, the plugin will fall back to config-based permissions.
  • EssentialsX requires Java 7 or above.
    Other Info This is an unofficial fork of Essentials. It will be consistently updated and maintained with the latest Minecraft and Spigot versions.
