    Upon request from many many people, I researched the Web and found @vemacs' and @drtshock's EssentialsX, the better Essentials.

    Why you should use it
    EssentialsX provides several performance enhancements and fixes that are currently not available in Essentials and Spigot-Essentials, most importantly fixed mob spawner support for 1.8+ servers. See the wiki for details.

    EssentialsX is almost a completely drop-in replacement for Essentials. However, it has different requirements:
    • EssentialsX requires Vault to enable chat prefix/suffixes and group support if you have a supported permissions plugin.
    • EssentialsX requires Java 7.
    Building
    To build with Maven, use the command
    Code (Text):
    mvn package dependency:copy
    Jar files can then be found in the /jars folder

    Commit Guidelines
    Commits should fall into one of 3 areas:
    • [Feature]: Commits which are features should start with [Feature] and followed by a quick summary on the top line, followed by some extra details in the commit body.
    • [Fix]: Commits which fix bugs, or minor improvements to existing features should start with [Fix] and followed by a quick summary on the top line, followed by some extra details in the commit body.
    • Commits which fix bugs caused by previous commits (since last release), or otherwise make no functionality changes, should have no prefix. These will not be added to the project change log.
    Other Info
    This is an unofficial fork of Essentials. It will be consistently updated and maintained with the latest Minecraft and Spigot versions.

    @vemacs & @drtshock: I am assuming you have no problem with me posting this. A quick reply like "yo dude that's not cool" and it's removed.
    Thanks again for the maintaining Essentials and your hard work. ♥

    Cheers

  2. You have to use this plugin with Essentials or I have to replace it with it?

    And if I replace the plugin etc.. will my config, player info work?
     
  3. You replace it.
    It worked flawless for me by replacing it, however I suggest you copy the Essentials folder to a different location (copy, not crop) before you replace it.

    Tell me how it went! Good luck!

    The reason we haven't posted this as a resource or such on Spigot is because of lack of clarification of what's allowed with regards to forked projects. I think @drtshock would be cool with this thread, however.

  5. I guess rating it "winner" is his way of allowing it. Thank you for the helpful statement!
     
  6. Is it still using the essentials. permissions?

    Yes, it's a drop-in replacement post-installation
     
  8. Is this okay to use with 1.7.10?
     
  9. vemacs

    Artist

    Nope. Use Essentials for that.
     
  10. Thanks.
