Minecraft Semi Vanilla Servers

google plus

SemiVanilla servers are created using Bukkit/Spigot jars, and may have very limited plugin use.

Allowed plugins include

  • Essentials commands (/spawn, /sethome, /home, /vote, /rules, /list, /ping, /ignore, /helpop),
  • Anti-grief plugins (GriefPrevention, CoreProtect, PotionProtect, Reporter, WorldGuard/WorldEdit),
  • Voting plugins (Votifier, GAListener, etc.),
  • Lag-reducing plugins (ClearLagg).
All default Vanilla features are allowed.

Wrappers to allow for chat commands like .home, .spawn, etc. are allowed. Chat plugins (/ignore, chat filters) may be used. Plugins that change the playercount, scoreboards, or player list may not be used.
Any other plugins that are used may not affect gameplay for regular players. The non-native plugin features available to players are limited only to integral commands. Semi-Vanilla servers rely on command blocks to do everything else. These servers do not have economy, multi-world, or minigame plugins.

So, if you are looking for a minecraft server so close to vanilla as possible, but have the option to protect your home and get back home easy, then look in the list down below.
If you are looking for the pure Vanilla servers without any modifications at all, then check out the clean Vanilla category.
