Trouble setting up Pixelmon Server with plugins- solved

Hello,

I would like to make a pixelmon server with plugins.

I installed Forge, Pixelmon and Sponge, everything seems to be working.
But when I try to add a plugin in the mod folder the server doesn’t seem to regonize it there are no new settings/config files made for the plugin, as if Sponge doesn’t regonize them as plugins in the Mod folder.


Using so far:
forge-1.8.9-11.15.1.1890-1.8.9-universal
spongeforge-1.8.9-1890-4.2.0-BETA-1595
Pixelmon-1.8.9-4.2.7-universal

only added WorldBorder to see if plugins work,

Plugins that I would like to add in the future:
World Border
Essentials
Grief Prevention

Please post the full fml-server-latest.log file when you attempt to add plugins so we can see why it’s not loading them.

FML has found a non-mod file WorldBorder.jar in your mods directory.

Is this WorldBorder designed for sponge, or for bukkit?

Sponge does not work with Bukkit plugins. Here’s some recommendations

WorldBorder alternative - Releases · trentech/ProjectBorders · GitHub
Essentials alternatives - Nucleus: The Ultimate Essentials Plugin (MC 1.10.2, 1.11.2, 1.12.2) and ⚛ Nexus v1.8.5b - Providing 100+ Essential Commands and Features

Others - https://forums.spongepowered.org/c/plugins/plugin-releases

Thanks for the Alternatives! just what I was looking for.
I found out that I’ve been using the wrong plugin file, so I fixed it.
