Supported server versions

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

  • โœ… 1.18.2 and 1.19.4 - EssentialsX actively develops against and supports these versions.

  • โš ๏ธ 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 contains countless overall performance optimisations over CraftBukkit and Spigot.

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

Upgrading to 2.20.0

If you're upgrading from 2.19.3 or above, you can keep your current EssentialsX config file. However, 2.20.0 adds several new options that you may want to configure, and to do so you'll need to either update your config or add the new settings to your existing config. Read on for a list of changes and new config options.

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

New module: EssentialsX Discord Link! ๐ŸŽ‰

EssentialsX Discord now has the Discord Link addon, which lets your users easily link their Discord and Minecraft accounts! You can synchronize Discord roles with Vault groups, as well as optionally requiring players to link to Discord before playing, all with a bloat-free and easy-to-understand configuration!

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.

Minecraft: Trails and Tales content not yet supported in commands

EssentialsX 2.20.0 doesn't yet support blocks, items and mobs from Minecraft: Trails and Tales in 1.19.x or 1.20. As a result, some commands and features (including /give, /spawnmob and /editsign) won't recognise the new content yet.

We plan to release a 2.20.1 update once Minecraft 1.20 has released, which will add support for the new content.

Important changes

Usermap storage and cache changes

EssentialsX 2.20 overhauls the user caching system, fixing issues with third-party plugins such as Towny.

Due to a large overhaul in data format, once you upgrade to 2.20.0, you will not be able to downgrade your userdata to older versions. We strongly recommend taking a full backup of your plugins/Essentials/usermap.csv file before you update from 2.19.7 to 2.20.0 if you ever wish to downgrade in the future.

New features

EssentialsX now supports 1.19.4

EssentialsX now officially supports CraftBukkit, Spigot and Paper for 1.19.4.

New /renamehome command

You can now use /renamehome to change the name of your existing home. If you have the essentials.renamehome.others permission, you can rename the homes of other players.

New /bottom command

You can now use /bottom to teleport to the lowest safe location in their current position.

Discord Link Module API

With the addition of the Discord Link Module, there is now an API service to access information about a player's Discord account that they have linked. You can obtain an instance of this and use it in tandem with the Discord module API like so:

// Gets the API service for EssentialsX Discord Link
final DiscordLinkService linkApi = Bukkit.getServicesManager().load(DiscordLinkService.class);
final String discordId = linkApi.getDiscordId(player.getUniqueId());

if (discordId == null) {
    // The player has no Discord account linked.
    return;
}

// Gets the API service for EssentialsX Discord which we will use to get the actual user
final DiscordService discordApi = Bukkit.getServicesManager().load(DiscordService.class);
final InteractionMember member = discordApi.getMemberById(discordId).join();
final String userTag = member == null ? null : member.getTag();

EssentialsX 2.20.0 introduces several new events:

  • GlobalChatEvent is fired when players send a message in global chat.
  • LocalChatEvent is fired when players send a message in local chat.
  • HomeModifyEvent is fired when a home is created, updated or deleted.
