have they made bukkit for 1.8 Minecraft yet?

  • they made it ages ago if you had the 1.7.10 version already they had a patch, however the site is not letting you download bukkit due to a takedown request – MadMrCrazy Mar 1 '16 at 6:01

the official site is currently not allowing you to download craftbukkit because of a DMCA takedown request.


No, the offical developers have not and will not, but there is another solution. The offical developers of CraftBukkit have not continued because of a DMCA takedown request. However, good news is that the developers of SpigotMC have continued both their project, their API and Bukkit(both the API and CraftBukkit). To build these, you use BuildTools, and the wiki is here: https://www.spigotmc.org/wiki/buildtools/. Unfortunately, it may be a little more advanced for non-tech-savvy people, but on Windows, the basic gist is:

  1. Get prerequisites(Git and Java)
  2. Right click on BuildTools.jar and click Git Bash.
  3. Run java -jar BuildTools.jar --rev (version) and replace version with the Minecraft version you want. For example, java -jar BuildTools.jar --rev 1.8.9 Don't double click on the jar.
  4. Wait a few minutes. The jars are being compiled.
  5. When done, you will find craftbukkit-(version).jar and spigot-(version).jar. These are the server jars! Use craftbukkit-(version).jar if you want to use CraftBukkit, or spigot-(version).jar if you want to use... well, Spigot!
