The Spigot Community Server is once again up and running. The server runs a recent snapshot build (currently 1.14-pre5) and is available for all members to play on.

You can play on it as you wish (survival, creative), but please make sure to respect the gameplay of others. That is if you have access to creative, don't leave valuable resources everywhere or target players in survival. Those with over 100 posts on the forums are eligible to be promoted to a rank which has access to creative. Being banned from the server will also lead to you being banned from the forums.

We are most interested in using this server to find bugs which are not present in either Spigot 1.13.2 or Vanilla snapshots. If you find any, please report them to the issue tracker linked below, after doing appropriate testing on the aforementioned versions. In particular note that there is currently a significant number of Vanilla bugs, and it is very important that you do not waste our time by reporting these.

The main world was generated on 19w03b. Please note that due to ongoing world generation issues, it is possible the world will be reset frequently.

Configuration / Issues:

Ranks available are based on number of posts:
  • Tester = 100 posts
  • Helper = 500 posts

To request a rank, please use the rank request thread: not this one.
As the calendar rolls over to 25th of December around the world, I would like to take this time to wish the entire community a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hopefully Santa has stocked the Christmas Tree well and you all get to spend some good times with friends and family.

Happy holidays from all the Spigot Team, and looking forward to 2019.

This is a short message to let you know that the latest versions of 1.13.2 required BuildTools #84 (or later) to be built. If you do not have this version BuildTools will let you know, and you can download a new copy here:

As an aside these updates mean that the first run of BuildTools will be 30 (or more) seconds quicker than previously.

Please direct all discussion to the forums at large, or the 1.13.2 release thread.

If you have a bug report to make, you should please do so using the bugs tab above (please read the guidelines when prompted to do so).

As of today, Spigot 1.13.2 is the default Minecraft version built by BuildTools.
As usual you can access older versions by using the --rev flag.

Please note that only Spigot 1.12.2 and Spigot 1.13.2 are supported versions on this website. The former will continue to receive ad hoc security and regression fixes (if required) in the near term - these will be available via BuildTools so be sure to check the revision letter (currently 1573-i) every few weeks.

Please also note that in general Spigot only supports Java versions that existed at the time of release. This means for example that now four-years-outdated and unsupported Spigot 1.8.8 does not support any Java newer than Java 8. This is yet another reason why you should continue to update your server!

Please direct all discussion to the forums at large, or the 1.13.2 release thread.

If you have a bug report to make, you should please do so using the bugs tab above (please read the guidelines when prompted to do so).
Update: Thu 8 Nov 2018 - BuildTools #81 and above will now apply a workaround for this issue and the fixes below are unnecessary if you are using this version.

Hi Everyone,

Recently these Linux distributions (and potentially others) published a bugged version of Java, which causes incompatibility with BuildTools (as well as many other Java programs).

If you see the error "Error: Could not find or load main class org.apache.maven.surefire.booter.ForkedBooter", you are affected by this bug.

You may read more about this bug in the following locations:

Until it is fixed there are several options you may wish to investigate:
  • Downgrade your distro version of Java
  • Install Java from Oracle rather than your distro
  • Add the following to the start of your BuildTools command:
  • Put the following in your .m2/settings.xml file (may need to be created)
    Code (Text):
  • Wait for the bug to be fixed.
  • Switch to Gentoo.
If the issue persists we may be required to update BuildTools to perform one or more of these steps automatically, however it is our hope that the issue will be addressed promptly.

Please direct any queries to the 1.13.2 discussion thread, or general forums:
