Essentials GroupManager (Ranks & Permissions)

GroupManager allows ranks and player permission for commands on your server
When a new player joins the server they are set as builder, you can alternatively set it to default which means they cannot build, or break block, this is the first line of defence from protecting your server from Griefers. Once you have moved a player to a builder rank they can interact with the world.

When you join the server you will want to move your player to the Owner rank which gives you access to all the commands. Once you are opped you can run this commandsou do this by running this command :

/manuadd playername owner    or    /manuadd playername admin

You can move player to the following GroupManager ranks:

  • Default (Guest)
  • Builder
  • Member (Optional)
  • Constructor (Optional)
  • Helper (Optional)
  • Vip (Optional)
  • Vip+ (Optional)
  • Moderator
  • Admin
  • Head-Admin
  • Co-owner
  • Owner

WorldEdit is an easy-to-use in-game world editor for Minecraft, supporting both single player and multiplayer.


WorldGuard is a powerful plugin with a large bag of tricks for server owners, server map makers, regular survival servers, and everyone in between!


This plugin has only one function: eliminate the lag caused by the WorldEdit! This is done by replacing the WorldEdits session with an special asynchronous one. All the block drawing is done in packages.


A simple, yet very powerful system for making physical shops using signs and chests.


LWC is the longest-lived single block protection plugin that protects both the block itself and contents of Chests, Furnaces, and Dispensers. It can also protect any other blocks, and by default will also protect Doors (Wooden + Iron), Signs and Trap Doors.


NoCheatPlus attempts to prevent cheat clients from exploiting weaknesses of Minecraft or its protocol, making your server more safe.


KitAdder is a plugin designed to capture the owner or admin’s inventory, and turn it into an Essential kit with the name of your choice.


PlugMan is a simple, easy to use plugin that lets server admins manage plugins from either in-game or console without the need to restart the server.


Vault is a Permissions, Chat, & Economy API to give plugins easy hooks into these systems without needing to hook or depend on each individual plugin themselves.


Certain tasks are impossible to perform with the standard Bukkit API, and may require working with and even modify Minecraft directly. A common technique is to modify incoming and outgoing packets, or inject custom packets into the stream. This is quite cumbersome to do, however, and most implementations will break as soon as a new version of Minecraft has been released, mostly due to obfuscation.
