Help With Essentials

i need help installing essentials, yes i have watched basically all the walkthrough videos. i have all of the essentials files in the mods folder(along with sponge). so yea, there’s nothing in the log about essentials and it does not show up when i do “./sponge plugins”, not even in red. please any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated, just want to make the best experience for the players on my server.

There is no working version of Essentials for Sponge yet. Sponge is completely different from Bukkit, so no Bukkit plugins will work with Sponge, and vice versa.


really aww man! that’s sad :frowning:

is there any other plugin that works with sponge that contains things like ./sethome?

This one [DISCONTINUED] EssentialCmds [v8.1.14]


@djxy thanks man, i’ll try it out!

There’s EssentialCmds made by @HassanS6000 and Core by @CreepsterLGC. EssCmds was already linked, so i’ll just leave a link to Core here:

ya it bukkit a bukkit server

I don’t have sponge I just use plugins or at least try

im running mod craftbukkit 1.8

I don’t think it’s possible to run sponge and bukkit at the same time. What exactly are you trying to achive?

You’ll need to wait until they add Sponge as an option or contact your host about adding it.
