What is Bssentials

Bssentials is a total remake of Essentials from the ground up! We do our best to provide a great remake of Essentials.

Why use Bssentials instead of EssentialsX?

Essentials was created 8 years ago, and the codebase is a mess. So such a mess with unnessary code, that it took EssentialsX a long time for the 1.13 changes. Essentials is also filled with proformance issues & bad practices.

Remaking Essentials from the ground up also gives us the ability for better performance / less resource-intensive, with newer functionally.


Bssentials has dedicated versions for Spigot/Paper and Fabric.
Download for Spigot/Paper: Bssentials-BUKKIT.jar.
Download for Fabric 1.16: Bssentials-FABRIC.jar.


The EssentialsBridge provides support for the Essentials API The “EssentialsBridge” module is a compatability layer between the Essentials API & Bssentials. Plugins like Vault , ChestShop , GroupManager , EssentialsChat , and others that depend on Essentials will work with Bssentials with out any modifications to them due to the EssentialsBridge

Real Excited for this, hope to use it in 1.14 some day! :slight_smile:

Curious why you did a remake, is there any reason why you didn’t instead just PR to the EssX repo? It’s maintained by some well-respected developers so I’m sure they’d be more than happy to discuss and merge PRs.


So this works on PaperMC 1.15.2? I just download this along with EssentialsBridge, throw them in my plguin folder and it’s basically set? Already using EssentialsX.
