Huh, nice spawn! Already basically got you set up for day one, just from luck!
Wonder if there are gonna be lots of spawns where you spawn right next to a woodland mansion!
I would truly suggest rather than group manager, you try PermissionsEX. It is a lot more well developed in my opinion, despite it not being as simple (if you want I can give you a tutorial for it on a DM :), just ask!)
I would highly suggest also getting NoCheatPlus, as hackers are very common on smaller servers. If not NocheatPlus, any anticheat plugin would work fine so long as it is trustworthy/known already.
A great plugin for adding plugins to the server, rather than having to restart/reload the server, is PlugMan, which is really great!
Any other plugins I would suggest depend on the type of style of factions you are going for.
The most common one I know of is MassiveCore Factions (which you would need the MassiveCore plugin for). I am developer on a smaller server that uses that specific plugin and the owner really seems to like it! However there are loads of factions plugins out there, so it really depends on personal preference!
Aside from all these, some optional plugins I would suggest are:
WorldEdit - For building
VoxelSniper - Terraforming
Bigger Biomes - What the name says :P.
Hope I helped!
Well, honestly, when starting up a server. If you want to keep it running, and non-hackable, you do need SOME bukkit/coding/command blocks.
Even PURE vanilla servers need to protect their spawn with command blocks one way or another. A good idea for you, is perhaps a Towny server. It is neither Factions nor Minigames.
Honestly, what I think is a good idea, is going modded with Forge. Try a modpack or somethin. That could work...
Well, for starters, before you even begin to build, you should get a good foundation of builders to help build you your castle.
When it comes to development of the mods, make sure you are checking to make sure there are no bugs.
I do not really mod, I am more of a player/builder, so I don't really know how to code it, but instead using command blocks could make the map easier to make, rather than taking the time to code a bunch of mods :P.
I am an Administrator of the VoxalMC network. We have many fun servers for everyone to play and have fun on!
We are seeking a developer to join us in making it a fun community with games that everyone loves! If you join us, you will receive 10% of all the profit that we make EVER!
The way we will set it up, is we will first interview you via Skype, and make sure that you can legitimately code.
Once you do, we will give you 5%. Throughout the month we will make sure you are coding something, and at the end of it, we are expecting you have coded 1-2 plugins. If you have, you will receive the other 5% you earned (note we will do all the money through PayPal, so please have a PayPal before you join us). We are expecting you have a good amount of Java AND BUKKIT coding experience (minimum 2-3 years), and that you are experienced in coding Minecraft Minigames. Currently, the network has earned over $100 over the last 2-3 months! Our player database is 10-20 players a day!
In-game, you will only have limited permissions however up to GMC until you prove that you can code.
If you are interested, you can request to get an interview here. Please give us (use this format):
Years coding Java:
Years coding Bukkit
Links to Plugins you have coded:
Previous Developing Experience (on servers):
IP to the server: play.voxalmc.net
