Ok, so when people say vanilla, they expect that to mean no mods.  This is true, but its a little more complicated than that.  The rule on this server is no cheats, but with "vanilla" Minecraft, I have no way to catch cheaters/hackers.  Hacks cause lag, as I hope was well demonstrated by our Norwegian visitors this morning.  Here is a list of the plugins that are currently installed along with some others I am planning to add when they are updated.
  • NoCheat - stops fly hacking, speed hacking and notifies of any extra unexpected traffic (often caused by hackers).
  • mxAntiPVPCheat - stops Autoheal, Autoaim and Forcefield.
  • NoLagg - buffers some memory stuffs and keeps chunks loaded on the client side.  I may get rid of this if it doesn't seem to help.
  • CFBanner - stop the use of Zombe and CJB Mods.
  • Worldedit - for admin use only - to clean up huge, lag-causing grief messes.
Simply put, I need these mods to enforce a clean, vanilla server.  Its not truly vanilla, but it is as close as we can get without causing a huge disaster.  You all really seem to like my server.  Please remember that I don't want to make more work for myself than is necessary.  This is why its hard to find a good vanilla server.  Security is directly related to performance.
