I have a minecraft server which I can change the JARs on. Currently I am using v 1.2.5 of Minecraft_server jar with Minecraft Forge installed to allow the use of the Buildcraft mods. On my previous server I just had bukkit installed, this allowed me to install mods like worldedit, but not buildcraft.

I really need a mod that will allow world editing and creative building, but I don't want to lose buildcraft. Is it possible to have bukkit and forge running at the same time? How would I start? Seems you can only download bukkit as a JAR.

Alternatively, a mod which is/like worldedit that would be compatible - although I would rather like to get Bukkit loaded so I can use things like "Essentials"

Here is a version of buildcraft that has been ported to Craftbukkit format. It will work as a plugin.

Ah, brilliant. Last time I tried to check there for ports, it was always empty! I'll check it out :) –  RawryLions Apr 30 '12 at 17:41

MCPC is a version of Bukkit that runs forge mods that have been ported across to Bukkit. It is more commonly seen in the Techic pack (Tekkit).

There's BukkitForge, a Forge mod which can run Bukkit plugins. It works on any Forge server.

There's also Cauldron for Minecraft 1.7, MCPC-Plus for 1.6, and MCPC-Plus-Legacy for 1.5, all of which are Bukkit servers with Forge built into them.

I recommend using Cauldron or MCPC-Plus, as BukkitForge's support for plugins is not natively built in. Be warned that Multiverse plugins do not always play nice with MCPC-Plus.
