    About EssentialsX
    EssentialsX is the essential plugin suite for Spigot servers, including over 130 commands and countless features for servers of any scale!

    EssentialsX is a continuation of the original Essentials 2 plugin for Bukkit servers, adding support for the latest Minecraft versions. EssentialsX also includes several performance enhancements and fixes on top of the original Essentials, as well as plenty of new useful features for servers.

    You can view major differences and learn how to set EssentialsX up over at the EssentialsX wiki.

    • EssentialsX is designed to use modern permissions plugins - we strongly recommend LuckPerms. You also need Vault for prefix/suffix support.
    • EssentialsX currently supports CraftBukkit, Spigot and Paper (recommended). Other server implementations may work, but we don't recommend them as they may cause compatibility issues.

    Version: 2.19.0
    I like this plugin, I install this plugin on all of my servers, and I have been using it since 2016.
  3. thatssojess
    Version: 2.19.0
    Great plugin, easy to configure only the parts you want, and has helpful documentation on the wiki. Thanks!
  4. EtheaaryXD
    Version: 2.19.0
    Great plugin, BUT it always replaces commands that it doesn't need to. It's annoying that it replaces /tp, /kill, among others, so I have to do /minecraft:tp and /minecraft:kill when I want to use an @ selector. This can be pretty annoying at times. The config is also a bit of a mess, maybe clean it up, put the different categories in different files? Otherwise, this plugin is perfect. I would recommend this plugin to most Minecraft Servers.

    Version: 2.19.0
    Worlds perfectly. Complaining about problems with an offline servercan be ignored. Support for offline servers is something extra I dont even know why people think they have the right to expect. Is it even used for anything exceptfor pirated clients?
  6. impmallet
    Version: 2.19.0
    fine plugin if you just need some basic commands for a small simple server. However, if you want to run anything that is for more than a few people, stay away from this one. It's buggy and lacks a lot of the quality of life features of more modern plugins. The original dev no longer maintains this plugin and the group that took over never could live up to the same standard, and now the code base is managed by what appears to be amateurs.
  7. MinecraftKid45
    Version: 2.19.0
    Works great! Not sure why people are complaining about garbage plugins included, and/or, not working on cracked servers, or being intrusive?? Never had a single problem out of this plugin and I've been running an offline mode server for 8 years now - this update automatically migrated everything and there have been zero issues.

    Version: 2.19.0
    Garbage plug-ins provide a bunch of useless redundant functions that interfere with the server. Some of these even have damn performance problems. This intrusive plug-in is a disaster in the ecosystem, with no respect for the results of the division of labor.

    Thank you essentialsx team for breaking this plugin for offline mode servers, and as always, not giving a single fuck about them, for vague reasons.
