So, I have been putting together a server file download, and I put in a bunch of plugins! As many other server admins have wondered in the past, what are the best plugins?! Well, here they are! *(in my opinion)* If you do not agree, please leave comments below, with why you disagree and ideas for ones to put into the list!

Plugins included:
Anticheat -detects players cheating and will warn them, then kick and ban them
ChatBukkit
ChatManager
Chatter
CraftBukkitUpToDate -automatically checks for craftbukkit and plugin updates, and downloads them to the bukkit_update folder
Essentials -a ton of helpful commands
EssentialsChat
EssentialsGroupBridge
EssentialsGroupManager
EssentialsProtect
EssentialsSpawn
Factions -create factions, you probably have seen these in other servers
iConomy -creates a great start for an economy on your server, by adding in money
mcMMO -gives points, money and rank for skills, like mining, fishing and so on
Multiverse-core -what allows you to make multiple worlds on your server
Multiverse-inventories -different inventories in different worlds, good for preventing people from taking items
Multiverse-netherportals -allows you to make portals to different worlds with nether portals
Multiverse-portals -make portals to different worlds
Multiverse-signportals -make portals using signs
NyanStone -make toggleable bridges, gates ect.
PermissionsEX -the permissions plugin!
Serversigns -make signs with executable commands
Timeismoney -give your players money for spending time on the server
Vault
Votifier
Worldedit -you should either know what this is, or look it up...like now
CraftBook - lift, gates, cart stations, better AI, and more. Thanks to Lozemo for telling me about this.
CoreProtect - an amazing antigrief plugin. VERY strongly suggested.

*I lay no claim to any of these plugins!*
Note: I now completly endorse group-manager as the best permissions plugin especially because it is easy to use in-game. If you do want a premade permissionsEX file, look HERE!

If you liked this or it was helpful, please, diamond, favorite and subscribe!

its not a bukkit plugin. Its something called BungeeCord which requires you to have more than 1 server. If you are looking for something like that without having to open multiple servers trying multiverse. http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/multiverse-core/

Are you looking to find a plugin with the command /server? What is the command supposed to do?
Have you looked at essentials? It has a lot of commands.

Well beastnode is always a good, reliable option, but a little pricy. expdushosting is great, and cheap, and if you are looking to host really REALLY well, for a big server or bungee network, ovh is the way to go, but it will cost you more. Reasons: in general beastnode is good quality with good service. exodus hosting is really great because of their cheap prices fou quality stuff (ssd's, sped, etc), and they also have sweet website packages. OVH is actually an enterprose level hosting copany that hosts all kinds of things not just mc. so you actually have to manage the hardware yourself (if you dont know linux, computers, servers, hardware, etc THIS IS NOT FOR YOU!). I could make a much better reccomendation if you told me more of what you are trying to do.

The thing that I do not understand about your PermissionsEX files is that you have nodes for Essentials and for Sk89q's CMDBook, Essentials offers most of the commands that CMDBook offers. Why do you use both?

Well, to answer your question, some people use essentials, some use command book. I had time on my hands when making it, so I added command book perms.

Also, why are you posting this here (not that I don't love questions/feedback/comments), but why not on the permissionsEX page?...

I cannot host these file myself, as it is breach of copyright and of the terms of service here on PMC. Look them up on bukkit. They are pretty easy to find. plugins.bukkit.org

Thanks for the list, I am setting up a server right now and have been trying to get everything together. Anyone know a good tutorial on how to use WorldEdit? I know that is essential to know, but it really confuses me on how to use it for some reason. I can use and run everything else I have tried so far, but that one is dinging my bell.

do you mean using it in-game? if so, then really the best way is to just do //help and read through commands. just mess with it. Also, going to the wiki and reading through command descriptions will really help. The key: just play with it and try it out. I'm sure that there are some tutorials out there, but really I think the best way to learn it is to just use it. Note: You will probably use //fill the most, so maybe look that up first and go from there.

You're missing the key one: CraftBook!
You can do teleporters, lifts, gates, better AI, cart stations, bridges, redstone improvements etc.

Yes I do! I did some searching around on google, and the permission node (without quotation marks), is "bukkit.command.plugins". So (this may be dependent on which plugin system you are using), to give someone this plugin, you would go into your permissions file, go to there name or group they are in, and under the permissions for that group, negate this permission. That is to say, that you would put (again, no quotes), "-bukkit.command.plugins" (note the -). My source for the permission node is the permissionsEX plugin wiki, so if you are using that, then this will work. I am almost positive that it would work for others, but if you tell me what you are using, I will research it for that.

Hello thank you for your reply. actually I use PermissionsEX. so what you are saying is the permission node: bukkit.command.plugins putting that under a groups permissions will stop then from using /plugins?

thanks again

no, putting that in there group will GIVE them the permission. So put that in, and then in front of the node, put a - (minus sign), with no spaces, so it would be: -bukkit.command.plugins
Does that make sense?

So for example if I wanted to give admins the permission to use it it would be

Admin

.......

Permissions:

- bukkit.command.plugins



And for groups that I don't want to have it

Guest

Permissions:

- -bukkit.command.plugins



like that

well, actually, everyone automatically is given that permission. so you don't need it to give it to them. for example sake, lets say you did need it to give it to them. you would type: bukkit.command.plugins
then to negate, you put the -
