These are a few of the most common and useful Spigot based Minecraft plugins.
📄️ Installing BlueMap
BlueMap is a 3D world map plugin that renders your server's world on a browser and is served by an integrated web server on your Minecraft server. Compared to DynMap, it offers better performance and aesthetics. It renders an accurate 3D block-to-block map of the world, including full-resolution textures, which can be navigated as a spectator or from a pseudo-top-down view.
📄️ Installing BungeeGuard
Bungee Guard is a plugin that secures your Waterfall or Bungeecord networks from backend accses. This is an essential plugin to use if you're running a Minecraft network.
📄️ Installing Chunky
Chunky only supports the following versions! If you need to pre-generate a world on any other version, reach out to our team and we'll be more than happy to help out!
📄️ Installing CoreProtect
CoreProtect is an essential tool for a server of nearly any size. It allows you to track, view, and revert almost any change made by a player and a decent amount of changes made by the game itself. It’s a highly recommended plugin if you’re running Spigot or any of it’s forks.
🗃️ Installing DriveBackupV2
📄️ Installing Geyser
Geyser is a program or mod/plugin that allows Bedrock Edition players to connect to Java Edition servers, with the goal of providing a seamless experience for the players involved. There are a few different ways Geyser can be installed, and a few mod/plugin loaders that Geyser supports, but for the most part the easiest way to run Geyser is to install the plugin/mod on your server. Though there’s also a standalone version that will run on it’s own like a proxy, but it might still require some server side modification for your Java Edition server.
📄️ Installing LuckPerms
Many plugins provide features that you don’t want every player to have access too, it’s true that vanilla Minecraft has the built in operator system to help with that, but it only allows you to grant each player everything or nothing. A permissions plugin allows you to assign individual permissions for plugin features or vanilla commands instead of relying on their defaults and operator system. So as part of the core of your server, you’ll want to install a permissions plugin and get comfortable with using it as soon as possible.
📄️ Installing SquareMap
SquareMap is a 2D map plugin geared towards performance and simplicity. We’re going to cover the basic installation, usage, and troubleshooting of the plugin on a Paper, Fabric, or Sponge server.
📄️ Installing Votifier
Votifier is a plugin that connects with many Server List websites. It’s part of a plugin stack that allows you to reward players for voting on those websites and bringing your server to the attention of new players.
