I have a small server with my wife, and she doesn't like playing when monsters spawn. That's fine, I can deal with Peaceful, and Spawners still spawn mobs that I can farm. But in the Nether, there are no Ghasts or Pigmen. Is there a way to let some mobs spawn but not others?

What plugins and/or configuration do I need to obtain this? I've got a bukkit server with Essentials.

World Guard will do this for you, for mob Blacklist, just add creepers, skeletons, anything that your wife does not like, and they will not spawn.

To stop mob spawning in a world, go to the world and using WorldGuard, simply say the following command:

    /rg flag __global__ mob-spawning deny

Be sure to be in the world you do NOT want mobs to spawn in when you do this. To undo, simply say:

   /rg flag __global__ mob-spawning allow
