One of the best things about a Minecraft Server is being able to customize it past Vanilla Minecraft. Adding plugins is just the way to do it, and a great way to bring life to your server is with Citizens, a Minecraft plugin that enables the creation of NPCs (Non-Player Characters) in your server. Some use it for design as you can bring NPC’s in the game as your skin, your friends, or maybe even as Notch or Herorbine. Some use NPC’s as shops, information providers, teleporters. This plugin is a great asset and we will be teaching you how you can get it on your server.
When downloading Citizens, you will also need to download the plugin Vault. If you do not download this plugin, Citizens will not work.
