There are Factions plugins for Bukkit servers that allow players to claim plots of land and protect (at least in theory) the buildings they construct on that claimed land. Players can even set homes, which is like creating a number of spawn points they can teleport to whenever they wish. Some administrators think these plugin packages give players too much power, and it’s those same administrators who will probably love the Bedhome Bukkit plugin. It doesn’t allow for the creation of multiple spawn points, the claiming of land or anything like that – but it does still allow players to teleport to a single place.
Once a bed has been placed and slept in, Minecraft will save that spot as the respawn point for the player. This must be done before the Bedhome plugin will function, since it uses the spawn point to determine where the player will teleport when they input the appropriate command. Strangely, the command won’t work until a new spawn point is set, so it won’t just take you back to the original world spawn if you never sleep in a bed – it won’t do anything in this case. The usefulness of a plugin like this is easy to underestimate.
For one, snapping back to your bed with a simple command can make returning home after a long mining run a thing of ease, something that takes seconds rather than hours. The same can be said for fishing, wood chopping and other resource runs. The command can also be used to save a player’s life if they are surrounded by enemies and need a quick escape, or if they’re stuck at a high point and dropping down would kill them. These points make the Bedhome plugin very useful for Hardcore mode players since dying once means the end of the world for them.
