    Hey guys,
    It's HDfunctions and what I would like to know is what plugins would you recommend for a server of 5 (ish) players?

    Are these players people you know and are not worried over greifing, or is there a potential for people you dont know to play as well? I run a smaller public server that only averages at maximum 8 online players at a given time(though 20 is the actual limit). Ive found in my use probably the most helpful ones are(in order):

    Essentials(just the standard .zip with the 5 main jar files in it)

    I dont run any permissions plugins or other things to that effect either. Im sure other people have other plugins and suggestions that they prefer as well.

    It's a mix of both, there are 2, they are my friend's cousin's friends. And why UberForest?

    I have a few players and occasionally newly joined players that like to log some fairly large areas when they build wooden houses, so I just tossed that on there to quickly repopulate the wooded areas. It seems to work pretty well.

    Thanks GearheadRed for your suggestions. Is there anymore plugin suggestions for a small server of 5 (ish) players? The plugins I currently have are:

    -Essentials (Core, Chat, Spawn, GroupBridge, GroupManager)
    -MinecraftRKitPlugin (for Remote Toolkit)
    Any plugins I should add, replace or remove?

    I just learned of a plugin called GriefPrevention, you might check that out. Im still poking at the configuration on it with my server but its pretty nifty.

    Edit: plugin search use Grief Prevention as the search, all one word only returns the dynmap plugin for it.

    So Grief Prevention would be able to replace WorldGuard and Lockette on my server?

    Well they all handle things a bit differently, you would have to read over what the capabilities of Grief Prevention and WorldGuard/Lockette are and decide if one does what you want more effectively than the other.

    Personally I have found most people do not understand the whole protecting their areas thing, so Grief Prevention seems like a better option since it will auto protect an area around the first chest a player places.

    I like the following for my server that is basically just friends and family 5 tp 7 people I trust but have kid factor as well

    Essentials: well because it is essentails
    Lockette; Too simple to use and perfect for "kids"
    My Worlds: for me is the best Multi-world plugin
    BkCommonLib: required for My Worlds
    Group Manager: Very configurable for multi-worlds and RPG type stuff, if you want that
    Vault: some plugins require it
    World Edit: well because it is World Edit
    Block Painter: Excellent little plugin

    for fun
    Tardis: really cool plugin and lots of fun
    Lift: is nice too
    MobRider: brings many laughs
    Alpha Chest: an added nice little plugin but I don't allow it in creative as things stay there when traveling between worlds

    for kid control
    No Spawn Egg: so we dont have 1000 villagers running around in the creative world
    Grief Prevention: to protect certain areas from kids that are well just kids ;)
    Restock It: got tired of kids saying they are starving so I have a few chests here and there that have apples in them
