I want to add Factions, or any other sort of anti-griefing plugin, to the server I am hosting, but the .jar provided is only a vanilla server for the Pack.

Is it possible to add Bukkit (Factions, or anti-griefing countermeasures) to the server without messing with the rest of the modpack? If so, how would I do that?

  • Bukkit is a server mod, so you need a modified server file. I don't know what a Vanilla server for a certain pack is, other than just a Vanilla server, but if it's the same as on minecraft.net/en-us/download/server, then it won't work for modpacks. – Fabian Röling Aug 22 '18 at 8:37
  • @FabianRöling The server created with the modpack runs off of vanilla, but is there no way I can set up factions or anti-griefing tools on the server in any way possible? – Camouflaged Cow Aug 22 '18 at 14:44
  • I don't know modpacks too much, but if it's a Vanilla server, you can only use client mods, like minimap, shulker box content display, etc., but no server mods (since the server isn't modded), like those that add new blocks/items/entities, change behaviours, etc. – Fabian Röling Aug 22 '18 at 15:40
  • @FabianRöling I understand it is vanilla, but is there a way I can convert it into a Bukkit server somehow? – Camouflaged Cow Aug 22 '18 at 15:44
  • Only by programming in every single modification that Bukkit ever did, which should only take a few years. Why don't you just download a Bukkit server instead? – Fabian Röling Aug 22 '18 at 16:04

Check out Forge Essentails 1.7.10

It has a few querks and some of the modules don't really work but it is a server only mod which you can use to prevent most griefing.
