Towny Plugin Pack

With the templates we offer, everyone can have fun without thinking about the boring tasks like installing plugins and configuring them, that's time consuming. Still, there's things you would want to change about the server or learn how to use certain features about it. Here's where we teach you how to ^-^


Giving yourself the OP role in-game

By default, you won't have access to all the commands. To fix that you will have to OP yourself from your Multicraft console. Once there, just type the following command:

op <username>
For example: op Notch

The username is case-sensitive so make sure to write your exact username. You can also set your rank to "Owner" by using the following command in-game after you OP'd yourself:
/lp user <username> parent set owner

We'll talk more about the ranks later in this article



/warp - This command will show you a list of warps (locations) on the server that you can teleport to. Simply clicking on one will allow you to teleport to it.
/t new <townname> - This is the command that you will need to use if you want to create a new town. It will ask you for confirmation for which you will just have to type /confirm in-game.
/t claim - This will claim the chunk that you are standing on for your town. Make sure that the chunk is connected to another chunk already claimed by the town.
/t unclaim - This will unclaim the chunk that you are standing on
/t deposit <amount> - This command will allow you to deposit money to your town's bank which can then be used for paying taxes and claiming more land.
/t invite <name> - This will send out an invitation for a player to join your town.
/t delete - This will remove your town. You will also have to confirm this command by typing /confirm
/n new <nationname> - This is the command that you will need to use if you want to create a new nation. It will ask you for confirmation for which you will just have to type /confirm
/n invite <town> - Invite a town to your nation
/ah - Open an auction menu where you can sell your items to other players.

/setwarp <name> - Sets a warp to your location.
/delwarp <name> - Removes a warp.
/tps - This command will show you the TPS value of your server. If the value is 20, that means that the server has perfect performance and that it is running fine. Anything above 18 should be good performance, if you have less than that, your server might be experiencing lag.
/t delete <town> - This command will remove the town that you want.
/n delete <nation> - This command will remove the nation that you want.
/si show - This will open an inventory that contains all the custom items that were implemented in this plugin pack. Left click to get one item, and shift + left click to get a stack.

/banip <username> - This command will prevent any username with the IP of the specified username from joining the server.

Plugin List

Here is a screenshot of all the plugins that the server is using, you can easily type " PluginName Minecraft Plugin " in your Google Search box and you will find all the details about that plugin, documentation and so on in case we miss something as we will include only the most important things.

Plugin List

Editing your MOTD (Server Description)

By default, you server description will look like this:

Default Description

The plugin pack is using the MiniMOTD plugin to display that description. It's one of the best plugins for editing your MOTD as it offers support for tons of colors as well as gradients. To change how it looks you will have to go to the plugins folder and then inside the MiniMOTD folder where you will find a main.conf file. The line1 and line2 options is what you need to change:

MiniMOTD Configuration

You can find out how you can format your text with gradients and more on their documentation here.

If you find MiniMOTD hard to use, you can remove the plugin file for it and use the default Minecraft MOTD feature. We have an article on how to do that here:

MOTD Tutorial - How to Change Your Message of the Day (MOTD)

You can also use this website to create a default MOTD for Minecraft. This will not work with the MiniMOTD plugin, just with the MOTD option inside your server settings:

Editing your Tab and Scoreboard

Plugin Link:

By default, your Tab and Scoreboard will look like this:


Now, you will need to go to the same "plugins" folder but this time to the "TAB" folder. There you need to edit the config.yml file.

You can change the TAB configuration in this section:

Tab Config

As for the scoreboard, you can change it in this section:

Scoreboard Config

For the full documentation and all the commands regarding this plugin, please have a look on their Wiki Page:

Editing your Holograms

Plugin Link:

When you join the server, the first thing you see is this hologram which by default looks like this:

Welcome Hologram

If you want to change it or other holograms, you need to go to the "plugins" folder and then access the HolographicDisplays directory. There, edit the database.yml file to your liking:

To learn more about this plugin, for example, how to move holograms to your location, how to remove certain holograms and so on, please have a look on their documentation page:

The Towny Plugin Plugin (Towny Advanced)

Plugin Link

The plugin the server is using for the Towny experience is Towny Advanced. It's a plug & play plugin, there's not really that much you have to configure about it but in case you want to, I suggest that you have a look over their wiki:
Towny Wiki

The Shop Plugin (EconomyShopGUI)

Plugin Link

The plugin that we are using for the shop is called EconomyShopGUI. It's a really well made plugin that you can use to customize your shop however you want. You can add or remove items, change prices and much more!

Here is a list of useful commands that you can use to manage the plugin:
/shop (Open the main shop)
/shop <section> (Open a shop section directly from the command instead of typing /shop and choosing a shop section)
/sreload (Reloads the plugin)
/editshop additem <section> <material> <buy price> <sell price> (This command will add any item from the shop)
/editshop edititem <section> <item> <action> <key> <value> (This command will edit any item from the shop)
/editshop deleteitem <section> <item> (This command will remove any item from the shop)
/editshop addhanditem <section> <buy price> <sell price> (With this oommand you can add items from your hand to the shop)
/editshop addsection <section> <material> <displayname> <place> (Used to add empty shop sections to shop)
/editshop editsection <section> <action> <key> <value> (Used to edit existing shop sections)
/editshop deletesection <section> (Used to delete shop sections from the sections.yml config)

You can edit shops using the commands above or by editing the config.yml/shops.yml/sections.yml files inside the EconomyShopGUI directory that's in your plugins folder.

If you want more info regarding the plugin I suggest having a look over their wiki here:
EconomyShopGUI Wiki

Ranks & Permissions Plugin (LuckPerms)

Plugin Link:

From the plugin link, the Bukkit/Spigot one is the one we are using and the one that the server supports. For this plugin, we already have an active article which you can check here:
Luckperms Article

To change the ranks easily, you need to use the command /lp editor and then access the link you are given. There, select the rank you want to edit and rename the text that is inside the red square:

Change "Helper" to whatever you want. but make sure not to change anything else, except the sybmols like &2 or &7 which are basically color formatting codes.
After you have changed that, enter the following command in-game:
/lp group Helper rename <new-name>

For help regarding color codes and formatting, here's a photo to help you understand what every symbol does:
