There are a few platforms available to server administrators, which allow plugins to be installed:
- Bukkit (No longer in operation)
There are many ways for players to interact, such as speaking, teleporting, and transferring of items.
Players can speak to each other by clicking the "T" Key, typing a message, and then clicking "Enter" so that everyone on the server can hear. Some servers have plug-in commands, such as /tell "player" "message" so that messages can be private, or commands such /tc, so that everything written will only be visible to people in one's town.
Teleporting can also be performed in various ways on many servers thanks to plug-ins. Some common teleports are:
- /spawn - Takes a player to the server spawn
- /warp "city" - Takes a player to a specific area within the server
- /tp - Teleports the player to another player
- /tphere - Teleports another player to the player
- /lobby - Takes the player out of a minigame and into the lobby
Sharing of items
This is a list of bugs that occur in most server game play experiences.
This occurs when the ping of the server increases to a certain point. This can cause players to break two blocks instead of one, blocks not breaking, blocks respawning, or gravity on blocks not working.
Flashing Render Glitch
This happens usually when TNT is ignited. It causes the blocks to not disappear. The blocks will usually stay in place, vibrate and flash. It will not increase light level, and the render glitch will not be touchable. This can be fixed by logging off, and logging back in.
- Main article: Chunk Error
This happens most commonly in Multiplayer, but all errors are Client-Side only. The server is not at fault for this. Falling into a missing chunk can cause the player to die just like falling through bedrock. The damage rate is the same as Lava. Throwing items into the chunk error will make the items unable to be obtained if you are on Single Player, but in Multiplayer, you can reload the server and retrieve your items.
The Window GUI of the Server Application allows you to type in commands to administer your server. The server admins can "OP" players to give them administrative permissions. This allows them to access the commands by adding the prefix "/" before the command.
