Coming back to modded MC after around a 3 year hiatus and struggling with some of the changes. Trying to get a ATM3 server up and running. Got the basics done thanks to the excellent spongeforge documentation but the absolute lack of plugins seems so strange compared to what used to be available. It is because its MC 1.12, or forge or a combination? I cant even find an essentials replacement. The closest I could find was Nexus which only went up to MC 1.9.4. Am I missing something or is there just no anything out there? If not does anyone have any recommendations on a hodgepodge replacement for things like fly, banned items, kits etc? Essentials was so convenient as it did so much with one plugin.
I did finally get a PEX to work right but, world edit doesnt seem to work right. Any recommendations would be appreciated on not just essentials but anything you think a new server might need that works with spongeforge and MC 1.12.
