A simple mod that allow players to create and maintain their own parties & squads.
It functions much like factions plugin from minecraft, while also adding in some guild/party features from various other mmorpg/moba games.
Squads are subgroups of parties and adds an HUD display which shows fellow squad members' health.
In general, its main purpose is to function as a player management mod.

A great add-on for RPG/ team/ guild servers or for a multiplayer team game.

Sounds useful for a city/wasteland server. I like the idea.

Update:
Image

Couple of new features compared to the first release
  • New squad mode! Sub-groups of parties and can hold up to 7 members. Players in squads can see each other health bars on the left corner! Also adds a separate chat channel Credits to lisacvuk for idea
  • Couple of administrative things are added, admins can force join/ kick/ disband any party - also a spy mode that requires "pspy" privilege - all messages will be revealed to admins. Credits to lumberJ for idea
  • Add titles to players if you are the leader, with "/p title <playername> <title>" -- it makes their chat messages in party messages come up with an extra title!
  • If two players have "/p pvp" toggled on, it allows friendly fire.
  • Party home, "/p home" to teleport to a party home that the leader has set with "/p homeset"
  • Switch which chat you are talking on with ease now, using "/p chat <main/party/squad>". Additionally, adding "@" in front of your chat messages allow quick sending to the main channel no matter which chat mode you are in.
  • Couple of bugs squashed

For a full complete list, the commits should give an better idea.
Additionally, you could refer to the wiki.
For ingame help, use "/p help" and "/sq help"

Really, is this post even necessary?
The mention of minecraft faction plugin is to let players who have heard of the feature to at least know something about this mod.
Plenty of mods here are very much inspired by minecraft mods even certain aspect of minetest_game itself and they are useful; WE, mesecons, farming.
Are you really trying to make a point that anything a minecraft mod/plugin has done is not worth creating or posting here?

Regardless, this is offtopic, please continue the discussion elsewhere.

I don`t like when people take ideas from minecraft. If we behave so, we can not do minetest that will be differ from minecraft. That`s why a lot of people don`t want to play here because they say Minetest is copy of Minecraft. I consider you should agree me.

Re-read my message please.

The mention of minecraft faction plugin is to let players who have heard of the feature to at least know something about this mod.

Additionally i added a nod to "various other mmorpg/moba games."

Please stop or continue the discussion elsewhere, it is controversial and useless to this topic.

My right answer contains above to your statement and i have never seen "useful" minecraft mods here. They have same Minetest API as other mods, for example, Minecraft mobs by Wuzzy or somebody.


For that i am stopping the discussion with you, good luck.

I love this, I have wanted to try to make something similar but have never gotten to do it. I hope to see a good server utilize this soon. Besides on regular survival servers an arena mod that utilizes parties would be really cool.

This is fabulous - I know of whole MMORPGs that are based on this sole idea of teamwork.
