Bukkit for Minecraft 1.7.4 / 1.7.2 / 1.6.4 / 1.6.2 / 1.5.2 is a set of Mods and Plugins that simplify the running and management of Minecraft Servers. Learning from the mistakes made by other mods, Bukkit aims to be different and fill the void left by them: built from the ground up we’ve focused on performance, ease-of-use, extreme customisability and better communication between the Team and, you, our users. The overall design of Bukkit has been inspired by other mods and our experience as Minecraft players just like yourselves, giving us a unique perspective and advantage going into the creation of the Bukkit Project
Bukkit – Your server, your way
Creating the dream Minecraft server you have always wanted has never been easier. Bukkit will provide you with the tools necessary to completely shape your server exactly how you like and makes it easy to maintain it through the use of a built in plugin install, uninstall and updating system. Unlike other mods, Bukkit will not force any functionality on you that isn’t absolutely necessary to run a Minecraft server. This results in less bloat and, as a result, better performance. With a click of a button or the entering of a command, you can have a plugin installed onto your server with ease.
More, for less
Having ran a large Minecraft server utilising over 40+ hMod plugins, I can honestly say that keeping performance in mind is key. Though it may not be evident to most of you, the way hMod is designed results in a significant dip in performance that wouldn’t be there without it. That’s right: most of you who are having performance issues are experiencing them due to hMod doing things in an inefficient manner, like locking everything into one thread – preventing Minecraft from doing more than one thing at a time.
Ease of use
The days of guessing what a command or feature does are over. From the start we’ve kept in mind the difficulties we’ve faced when using the other mods available for the Minecraft server and the Minecraft server itself. Up until I got involved in the hMod project, there was an extreme lack of documentation for the mod – making it more complicated than it should have been to run your Minecraft server. When it comes to the Bukkit project, we’ll be providing clear documentation and as many resources as we can to make it easier for our users and interested developers. On top of this, we’ll be trying our best to make our commands – and encourage plugin developers to make their commands – follow a logical naming scheme that hopefully tells you exactly what a command will do.
