Announcement: SpawnControl Discontinued

I've been in communication with morganm, creator of an advanced fork (well beyond a fork at this point, actually) of SpawnControl: HomeSpawnPlus. Based on my initial testing of HSP, and comparison of feature sets, I'm going to recommend that existing SpawnControl users switch to HSP. HSP can import existing SpawnControl home, spawn, and group spawn information. It also supports many of the advanced features SC users have been requesting for a while: world forwarding, command warmups, bed support, etc. Permissions, GroupManager and PEX are supported, as well as limited OP permissions.

Given the limited development time at my disposal, and the existence of a superior (and compatible) alternative, it makes more sense for myself and the SpawnControl userbase to switch. Apologies for the inconvenience.

If you have questions about the conversion process, feel free to direct them to myself or morganm. If you have concerns or complaints, direct them to me. :)


  • Per-player /home and /sethome
  • Per-group /groupspawn
  • Precise /spawn and /setspawn override
  • Per-world global, group, and player spawns
  • [NEW] Cooldowns for /home, /sethome, /groupspawn, and /spawn
  • Optional respawn on death
  • Optional respawn on join
  • Toggles for home, groupspawn, and globalspawn features
  • Imports player homes from
  • Imports group spawns from


This is a more full-featured release by far. Group spawns and global spawn are now supported. I'm detecting 'new' players (for global spawn) by checking their group (new players will be in Default) and looking for an existing home entry. If no home entry is found, the player will be teleported to the global spawn and their home will be set to the global spawn location. If someone has a better method for detecting this, I'd love to hear it.

The following permissions are available:

  • SpawnControl.sethome.basic
  • SpawnControl.sethome.proxy
  • SpawnControl.home.basic
  • SpawnControl.spawn.use
  • SpawnControl.spawn.set
  • SpawnControl.groupspawn.use
  • SpawnControl.groupspawn.set
  • SpawnControl.CooldownExempt.* (Sub-nodes: *, home, sethome, groupspawn, spawn)
  • SpawnControl.config (for /sc_config [setting] [value])
  • SpawnControl.import (for /scimportconfig and /scimportgroupconfig)


The Permissions (Phoenix) fork by TheYeti is optionally supported.

The PermissionsBukkit plugin by SpaceManiac is optionally supported.
