Can someone, for the love of god, explain to me how to use hocon format in the new Permissions Ex? I have fiddled around with commands, trying to get anything to work, and at this point I only know the command to OP users. Other than that, I’m clueless. I’m trying to create a Pixelmon Server, and I need to run sponge for the newest version. I know there are servers out there using Sponge to get their plugins for their server, so I know it’s not impossible. I was proficient in yaml format with the old Permissions Ex, and could probably figure out the new format if I had a working PEX config file I could model off of. There are no truly good reference points that I can find to create a server using PEX 2.0. Could someone who is currently running Pixelmon 4.2.3 send me a copy of their config file, or could someone direct me towards useful resources I could be missing? I just really need some help here, I’m desperate.
I’ve read a ton on how actually editing config isn’t going to treat you well, and I would prefer using in game commands anyways. So, what is the first step in making a ladder? Do I start with the highest rank (Owner) and go down? How do you make multiple ladders, so an admin has the same amount of perms as a donator rank? To give me a better idea, could you use the names I have for my groups put into the commands? From lowest to highest in donator ranks, it would be: Trainer, Member, Pro, Elite, Master. Then for the staff ranks, it would be: Helper, Moderator, Admin, Owner.
You start with the lowest rank, as it has the least permissions. Then you create the next higher rank and make it inherit from the lowest rank. When a group inherits from another group it gets all permissions of the parent.
Have you actually read the post I linked? I alreday explained it there…
You could make Admin inherit from donator, Admin will get all perms of donator plus the ones you assign to Admin separately.
I’m currently on mobile, but I’ll have a look on your groups later
You start off with a default group, which you assign to every user when he joins. Usually that’s the group with the least perms. Name groups carefully, as they’re case sensitive! I usually name all groups lowercase to avoid confusion.
create a group named “default” with zero perms: /pex group default def false
assign every new user to this group upon join: /pex default user parent add group default
add a new group named <.groupname> which inherits from default (you can add perms later): /pex group <.groupname> parent add group default
repeat step 3 with <.groupname-2> inhereting from <.groupname>: /pex group <.groupname-2> parent add group <.groupname>
repeat until you have all groups for your first ladder.
Now you need to create the ladder itself:
5. pex rank <laddername> add group <groupname>
repeat until all groups you want to have on this ladder are in.
Hilariously enough, those were the commands I was using, in that order. However, the problem was because my co-owner who tried to configure the server before me didn’t update to the newest versions of spongeforge, forge, pex, and essentials. Everything is working, and thanks for all of your help!
i have been recently trying to set up a server for my modpack called enriched survival that can be found on the curse modpack launcher and when i try to start it the plugin for griefprevention says that it cant find a permissions plugin there for making the plugin not work could someone help or tell me how to fix it?
The answer lies in the very title of the thread you are replying to. Get a permissions plugin for Sponge, such as PermissionsEx, and add that to the mods folder. You’ll have to set up some permissions too, which is all explained on the PermissionsEx thread if you care to browse a bit.
