Importing realms from other plugins

<- Return to main RealmsCore Help page
<- Return to RealmsCore Realms Help page


If you would like to use plugins with their own realm-like system, such as Factions or Towny, RealmsCore can optionally import their data.

This makes it easy to use your existing plugins alongside RealmsCore, Story, and Jails.

Note that this feature is coming in a future RealmsCore update. It is not currently functional, and enabling it will have no effect.


How it works

When this is used, realms are loaded from the other plugin (instead of from the playerdata files). Your factions, towns, or nations, from other plugins, can be used as realms.

The name, players, and sometimes other information is loaded from the other plugin. See below for specifics. You can still edit information using /realm <realm name> set <fullname/color/tagline/parent> <new data…>

Note that you must use the commands from the other plugins to create and add players to realms. Any changes made to the faction/town will be reflected in the realm. The built-in commands for creating realms and adding players will be disabled.


How to enable

In coreconfig.yml, set load-realms-from to one of the following:

  • “playerdata” – default option, load realms from RealmsCore playerdata files.
  • “factions” – load factions as realms, requires Factions plugin to be installed, and a future update to RealmsCore.
  • More plugin integrations coming soon.
