Minecraft can be enhanced in so many ways, making it feel like you’re playing something new each time. One example is by using Bukkit, which is a great tool for multiplayer servers as it allows plugins to function, which help manage a server.
In this post, we’re going to take a look at some of the Best Bukkit Plugins for Minecraft Version 1.13. These are plugins which are supported at that release, not necessarily created during it.
All of the buttons below link back to the Bukkit website, where you can download the plugins. If you want to check out some more Minecraft content we’ve covered, check our dedicated area here.
WorldEdit is a tool that works in both singleplayer and multiplayer modes. It adds many advanced terrain features to Minecraft, allowing you to place thousands of blocks in a matter of seconds, copy and paste, mass delete, create mountains and so much more. There are a load of tutorials available for this plugin, as well as a Forge version available.
From the same developer of WorldEdit is WorldGuard. If you run a multiplayer server, this plugin is a must have.

This is especially useful if you run a multiplayer server.

A great plugin for setting up a marketplace on your server.
