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.
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/
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.
He is asking for a mod not a plugin.
