I was wondering how to add plugins to my Minecraft server. I am using Bukkit, and the things I would like to be able to do is spawn stuff, teleport to other players, set home locations, have an in-game currency/shop and be able to teleport to homes.
I would suggest you to download and configure the following bukkit plugins:
There is also a full list of server mods/plugins.
As for the "teleport to others homes" part, I'm still looking for something myself. But I guess the best thing is to ask the Essentials creator to implement this.
Plugins are usually installed by placing them in the /plugins folder, but some plugins also have custom installation steps, and these steps are usually detailed in the forum post.
Well it sounds like you have already got the server up from the title. Go to this http://plugins.bukkit.org/ to get plugins.If you're using Google chrome its going to say it might be unsafe or similar click OK or continue.Then drag the plugin into the plugin folder C:\Users\YourUser\Desktop\plugin\plugins that's the directory.
A plugin for money I recommend BOSEconomy http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/boseconomy/
A plugin for homes i reccomend http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/uhome/ It allows your players to have multiple homes and has a easy command /sethome
A plugin for shops get chestshop http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/chestshop/
He is asking for a mod not a plugin.
