About Citizens Bukkit Plugin

Minecraft servers are an excellent way of making a fantasy world come true, as they are highly customizable. You can use plugins for this purpose – and Citizens happens to be one of the most popular for this aspect.

All Minecraft servers include NPCs of different kinds. They bring a different atmosphere to the game and make it look less isolated.

There isn’t any limit for the use you’d like to give to the NPCs you create with this plugin. You can use them as mere decorative mobs at villages – for instance – or you can use them as information sources. It’s an excellent way of making the game experience more vivid.

“Citizens” is the evolved version of the original “Bukkit NPC” plugin. As its name suggests, it is used to create and modify NPCs so that you can make the game experience more vivid. There aren’t limits to what kind of NPCs you can create. You can use them to create shops, others to work as warp points, and so on.


For starters, your server needs Vault for Citizens to work correctly. Once you’ve installed Vault on your server, you can proceed to install it in your system. Unfortunately, it is also only compatible with Bukkit, Spigot, and Paper.
