Minecraft: mcMMO Server Plugin
by Rankster on Sat Jan 09 2021.
What is mcMMO?
mcMMO is one of the most popular Minecraft java plugins for Spigot/Paper servers. mcMMO adds RPG elements to your Minecraft server by introducing a skill system. Each skill gets an XP bar in addition to passive bonuses and special abilities to unlock. If you haven’t tried it before, now is the time! The original author nossr50 is back to Overhaul the plugin! What does that mean? It means even more new and improved features for mcMMO!
Since the skills system is the main addition in mcMMO lets go over some of the basics. mcMMO skills can fall into three different categories:
- Gathering skills (Excavation, Fishing, Herbalism, Mining, Woodcutting)
Combat skills (Archery, Axes, Swords, Taming, Unarmed)
Misc skills (Acrobatics, Alchemy, Repair, Salvage, Smelting).
Improving your skills is easy and will increase passive bonuses like double drop chance for gathering skills in addition to unlocking superpowers! To level them up one simply performs ordinary Minecraft tasks like mining or fighting off zombies. I’ll be writing in depth guides for each skill so look for those if you want master them!
Above all SuperPowers are the biggest advantage of leveling up your skills. These special abilities are unlocked early and scale up to max level just like the passive bonuses. Each Superpower provides powerful effects and can be activated with a simple right click. For example the Superbreaker provides triple drop chance in addition to increasing mining speed for a duration of time. All these values can be tweaked easily in the config files. there is even an option for turning mcMMO skill bonuses on/off for PvP.
In addition to adding an XP system to your skills, mcMMO introduces a party system and a competitive skill leaderboard! The party system is great for friends looking to share XP or teleport easily to each other. All of these additions provide for a little more excitement for those veterans Minecraft players looking to enhance their experience.

How to Install
mcMMO is fairly easy to install. You’ll need to be running the latest version of Spigot or Paper. Once your server is setup, simply drag and drop the Jar file into your plugins folder. You can download the latest version of mcMMO off spigotmc.org! By editing the config files any of the above settings can be customized for your server. You can do things like turn off mcMMO for PvP or tweak level and bonus values for any skill. Allowing you to customize the level grind, passive bonus amounts, loot drops and balance PvP to your preferred settings.
