Supported server versions

EssentialsX officially supports the CraftBukkit, Spigot, and Paper server software. Specifically, EssentialsX is designed to work on the following Minecraft versions:

  • 1.18.2 and 1.19.2 - EssentialsX actively develops against and supports these versions.
  • ⚠️ 1.8.8, 1.9.4, 1.10.2, 1.11.2, 1.12.2, 1.13.2, 1.14.4, 1.15.2, 1.16.5, and 1.17.1 - these versions are still supported, but are not a priority for us, and may be dropped in a future release.

We recommend using the latest version of Paper. EssentialsX includes significant improvements that require Paper, including:

  • Paper's async chunk loading reduces lag spikes during player teleports. CraftBukkit and Spigot do not support async chunk loading from plugins.
  • /anvil, /grindstone, /cartographytable, /loom, /smithingtable, /stonecutter are only supported on Paper. CraftBukkit and Spigot do not support the API needed for these.
  • /recipe on 1.12+ requires Paper to avoid a dupe bug introduced by CraftBukkit and Spigot.
  • Paper properly shows colours in EssentialsX's console log messages, including EssentialsX Chat messages.
  • Paper contains countless overall performance optimisations over CraftBukkit and Spigot.
  • Paper supports all properly-written plugins for CraftBukkit and Spigot.

EssentialsX does not support the following Minecraft versions or server software:

Upgrading to 2.19.7

If you're upgrading from 2.19.3 or above, you can keep your current EssentialsX config file. There have been no changes to the configuration since that release.

Upgrading from 2.19.2 or older versions of EssentialsX? See the previous update changelogs.

Known issues

Anchor charges deplete on Spigot even when EssentialsX Spawn overrides the spawn location

On CraftBukkit and Spigot, anchor charges will deplete regardless of the respawn-at-anchor due to an unfixed bug in CraftBukkit. This bug has been patched in Paper.

Vanilla signed chat commands may show EssentialsX formatting on 1.19.1+

If you use any vanilla commands that send secure chat messages (including /minecraft:msg or /minecraft:me), you may see formatting from EssentialsX Chat in these messages. This is due to an implementation quirk in Spigot, which forces plugins to handle all secure previews for vanilla chat commands as if they were public chat messages. There is no known workaround for this at this time, but you can continue to use unsigned commands from EssentialsX and other plugins as normal.

Bug fixes
