Hi! I am likely not the only one who remembers the wonderful software called MCPC+. For those of you who don't, it was a wonderful piece of server software that ran both Forge mods as well as Bukkit plugins. It wasn't compatible with everything, but it could do almost everything. Unfortunately, it died when Bukkit got DMCA-ed, as far as I can tell. So, this brings us to my current issue.
I am trying to set up a Minecraft 1.10.2 modded server that is capable of handling Bukkit plugins as well. While mods can handle some stuff, you really need plugins to handle much of the multiplayer problems, such as staff ranks, block logging, grief prevention, and much else. I know there must be a hybrid somewhere, because I have been on servers that were modded, and were definitely using Bukkit plugins. Generally speaking, /pl wouldn't respond with GroupManager, Essentials, and AncientRPG unless it was using Bukkit, seeing as ALL of those are Bukkit plugins. So, one definitely exists, or at least some way to merge the two does to some extent.
So, does anyone know how I would go about this? I don't know where to find the files for it, nor do I know the names. All I know is that it has to exist. So, does anyone know where I might find it?
