As most of you know, MCPC/Cauldron is no longer updating to 1.8, meaning that we cannot use plugins on our server. BUT the other big alternative is sponge API.
This is their aim:-
For those who are more familiar with the community, Sponge combines the best parts of Bukkit, Forge, Spout, Spigot, Cauldron, and many other projects into one API.
But read this:- https://www.reddit.com/r/spongeproject/ ... able_with/ (Not that i know that this source is reliable).
That wrapper is called Pore, acting as a bridge between the mod and bukkit to support bukkit plugins BUT again many plugins would not probably be supported (outdated).
Pore is unlikely to ever get off the drawing board. ShaRose has expressed his opinion recently that a loader for Bukkit plugins won't be legal to distribute. This disappoints me as much as anyone, but that's the way it rolls. [frowning] Here's the blurb from IRC: <ShaRose> welp, after looking it over I'm entirely convinced there is no legal way to make a legal loader for bukkit plugins <Hubok> Didn't someone mention loading different .jar files doesn't violate the GPL?
Probably no pixelmon server could survive without plugins.
Of course my research could have taken a wrong lead. Your thoughts guys?
