Essentials-S is another essentials plugin. However unlike most essentials plugin it is designed from the ground up to work with Sponge API 8+.

What is a Essential plugin

A Essential plugin adds all commands, options, signs, etc. that are not part of vanilla but should be. Commands like kit, warp, home, etc.

Why not Nucleus?

With Dual (The developer of Nucleus) leaving the Sponge community it has meant that Nucleus will no longer receive updates and it was sadly never fully developed for Sponge API 8, leaving Sponge API 8 admins without an essentials plugin.

Commands and Permissions
