    posted a message on How to set up whitelisting in either bPermissions or PermissionEX?

    Munkeywaxx,


    Thanks for your response. By "whitelist" I was talking about putting permissions into a whitelist mode where everything starts out blocked-- something I thought would have been the default? I wasn't talking about the server command /whitelist to allow users to connect. Sorry for the confusion.



    - -[*]


    works for some of the permissions, but apparently doesn't apply to plugins, so it looks like I'll need to wildcard each plugin I load too?



    Are there any other core permissions that won't cover? minecraft.*? bukkit.*?

    The OS choice won't make a noticeable difference with vanilla minecraft server.


    As for advice on laptop use for the server, it really depends on the number of users you expect. The real world numbers I've seen with 9 users on a vanilla server still showed cpu usage in the single digit percentages. What's more likely to bite you in the butt is bandwidth and latency issues. But that has more to do with your ISP than your server choice.


    Also overheating hasn't been an issue for ages -- the hardware automatically throttles itself to prevent damage now. Worst case you see performance issues, but again -- single digit CPU numbers suggest there will be no heating issues. Normally the heating issues I see in laptops is from the GPU -- something the server doesn't touch.


    Before looking at hosting, fire up the minecraft server and test. If Windows 10 would load on it, the specs should be fine.

    posted a message on bPermissions not working!

    steampunkerkai,



    There are multiple errors with that file. Line 20 and 40 need a colon after "groups".


    Also, you didn't tell us the relative path to the groups.yml file -- there are multiple. You could be editing the wrong one. make sure it's the plugins/bPermissions/world/groups.yml file that you're editing.

    I've been trying to figure out which permission node from which plugin is granting or denying and it is driving me insane!


    The stuff I've found online doesn't work -- likely because the instructions are for permissions that come with plugins I don't use.


    What I'd like to do is just block all permissions in the default group, and then let certain ones though based on the queries that get returned when PermissionEX is in debug mode.


    So, for instance, I'd log into the mincraft server, try to break a block, fail, and then look at the logs to see which permissions got queried.


    I'm running Spigot 1.10.2. Assume I'm starting vanilla -- just the permissions plugin (and any dependencies like Vault).


    Btw, I've also tried using plugins that are supposed to return a list of permission nodes, but so far, the ones I've tried are incomplete -- no bukkit.*, minecraft.*, etc... (http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/getperms/). Is there some other way to return this information? Otherwise is there a way to return a report of "effective" permissions for a user?
