The library's Minecraft server runs on the latest version of Spigot, a version of Minecraft that allows for extensive customization and add-ons, often referred to as "Plugins." The plugins below are available to every "world" running on our server. Our server administrators decide on which plugins to install, but they are open to any requests by our volunteer developers. We prefer to purchase our plugins both as a way to support development (and pay for good programming) but also to help ensure that the plugin is sufficiently supported.

BuildBattle Pro

This plugin is made to be all in one plugin for server management and replace multiple outdated plugins. It can fully replace Essentials/EssentialsX, Advanced Portals, and other plugins we used to use separately. It provides updated tools for creating unique servers with new game mechanics.

All of our servers include this plugin.

Easy to set up when making use of Dynmap's integrated webserver which works out-of-the-box, while also available to be integrated into existing websites running on Apache and the like.

The project's main goals are centered around high performance and a wide feature set, filling the gaps of functionality and building upon existing features found in other plugins.

While not really a plugin, this premium software runs on our server to help manage all of our Minecraft services. It provides a centralized control panel used by our server administrators to start, stop and troubleshoot all of our Minecraft "instances."

All of our servers are managed through this platform.

MySQL Player Data Bridge

Plugin Logo

A purchased plugin used to share player data across our many servers. We use it to connect our adventure and survival-based servers so that they share the same economy. Our configuration currently only shares Economy accounts. However, in the future we may also share Inventory and Armor, Experience, Health and Food levels.
