ZenaFactions is a plugin that introduces factions into your game. This plugin is still very much in development, consider it a Beta version. It probably contains quite a few bugs. On the more positive side of things, since I'm actively working on the plugin (expect updates every day/ every couple of days) these should get fixed quite quickly. I'm also very open for feedback on current mechanics/features and suggestions for future features.

Why use this plugin instead of a more mature one?
This plugin is still heavily under development. This means that I'm very interested in server owner feedback. Consider yourself a béta tester, in return for which you will probably receive the features you desire. So, ZenaFactions is a fairly decently specced, yet sometimes buggy alternative to other faction plugins with the benefit of your requested features most likely ending up in the plugin.

Current Features

  • Faction Economy [​Vault integration]: Factions have their own bank accounts, accessible to high ranking members.
  • Faction Loans: Factions can create loans to make money using their large cash reserve. Once a loan has been created, a player can take on a loan. Once the loan expires, the total amount + interest will be deducted from the player's account. If the player doesn't have enough money to pay for the loan, a new loan with a higher interest rate will be created.
  • Faction Warps: Factions can create warps. Warps are only available for members within a faction, and cost money to use. Warps can be restricted to certain ranks and can be taxed (faction makes money from a player using their warp)
  • Faction territory [​GriefPrevention integration]: ZenaFactions has GriefPrevention Integration; players can only create GP claims within their Faction Territory! Claiming the wilderness costs faction influence.
  • Wars: Factions can go to war with each other to steal influence and territory [​WIP!]
  • Dynmap Add-on [​Dynmap integration]: I also made a dynmap add-on that displays faction territory and warps (more to come in the future)
  • Discord Add-On [​Discord integration]: I created a discord add-on for the plugin that integrates your discord server with your ZenaFactions install. The discord bot sends messages of ZenaFactions related events to your discord members!
  • Performance: almost everything this plugin does is handled on a separate thread, so it won't slow your server thread down much.
  • Faction Banners: Faction leaders can add a custom banner to their faction that members can use in their builds
  • Customizable Ranks: players can create an unlimited amount of their own custom ranks/roles and assign permissions to each role. This includes permissions for warps!

  • Vault (Latest version)
  • GriefPrevention (Latest version, GPRealEstate jar works too)

Based on suggestions by you!
  • Alliances and Wars overhaul: add alliances between factions, not sure about the specific mechanics. Finish the wars system, make new system for making demands etc.
  • Discord Integration: create a new plugin allowing server admins to link their discord to the server. It'd be cool if the plugin could send messages to all members in a chatroom (linked to a faction) if their faction is attacked for instance. [Finished!]
  • Revamp of ranks and permissions: revamp the whole rank system and replace it with a more flexible one. Faction owners should be able to create new ranks (not just limited to 3) and assign them specific permissions. [Finished!]

Update #7: The Discord Update : 02/18/2021 7:40:19 amFeb 18th

Hi everyone!

This update is mostly focused on the new Discord Add-On to the server, which again was a suggestion by one of you. It took me a little longer to publish this update than usual because I also majorly overhauled the internal faction territory system, which is no longer limited to 128 factions and can now handle unlimited factions.

Important notice: you have to update your ZenaFactions - Dynmap install to at least v0.3.4 if you want to use ZenaFactions v0.1.16.2! Older versions of ZFDynmap are incompatible with the new release of ZenaFactions.

Check out the new Discord Add-on! Hope you like the update!

- added support for ZFDynamp 0.1.1
- reworked faction claiming (under the hood improvements)

bugfixes (v0.1.16.1):
- database initialization is now safe(r)

bugfixes (v0.1.16.2):
- fixed bug with loading legacy player data
