How to write a (good) plugin/modpack/mod request

Heads up! You're sure that you're right here?

You are viewing the archive for plugin/mod & modpack requests.

The way of requesting new plugins/mods and modpacks has changed recently.

You can request modpacks here: https://board.aternos.org/board/91-modpack-requests
You can request plugins and mods here: https://aternos.org/suggest
  • Please read the whole thread before you write a plugin, modpack or mod request. We know it may be long, but in the end it will save you and the aternos team a lot of time!


    Before you write your request


    Before you write your request, please check if this plugin/modpack/mod was already requested or is already accepted.
    To do so, just search for the name of the plugin in your forum search. Your plugin/modpack/mod may be denied for various reasons.
    If your plugin/modpack/mod was accepted, you just need to search for it on the plugins site or in the modpacks. No need to write a request then!
    Also, only request one plugin/modpack/mod in a thread and make sure that it's written in English language.


    Please notice:
    If you already wrote a plugin request and someone refers you to this Thread DO NOT repost your Thread or answer to your old one: You can edit your Threads by clicking on the "Edit" Button on the bottom left of the text. Just edit the Thread accordingly.


    Writing your plugin request
    Before you request your plugin, please check if your plugin...
    - ... is availible on the Bukkit or Spigot plugin index. We won't accept plugins that are not in there! The plugin must be officially distributed over that platform, any type of reuploads etc. are not allowed.
    - ... is directly available there. If the button looks like the button in the screenshot, we won't add the plugin:


    - ... isn't outdated. To do so just look into the "facts"/"informations" section on the right side of the plugins's bukkit website
    - ... is available for free

    - ... has it's description and documentation on the platform where it's distributed over available in English language

    - ... isn't still developed. If there is a banner on the page like the following one, it won't be updated anymore. Even if it was updated not long ago, we won't add it:

    If your plugin meets all these requirements then... congratulations! You can now write your plugin request:


    The title should be something like this:
    [Plugin Request] Plugin name here


    Please then provide the following informations in the thread:
    - The name of your plugin
    - The link to the plugin page on bukkit/spigot (we don't need the direct download link!)
    - A small description of the requested plugin in your own words and which consists of at least 15 words!


    Here is an example of a good plugin request:


    [Plugin Request] Essentials
    Hi Aternos Team, can you please add the following plugin?
    Plugin name: Essentials
    Plugin link: https://dev.bukkit.org/projects/essentials
    Description: Essentials adds a lot of useful commands to Minecraft. It's already used by a lot of servers.
    Thank you!

    Of course Essentials is already in our plugin list but this should just be an example on how you can do it right :)


    After you have submitted your request, just wait for our response, we we typically answer within a week, but sometimes we need longer, so just be patient.


    Writing your modpack request
    This is only for modpacks. If you want to request a single mod, please scroll down further.


    Before you request your modpack, please check if your modpack...

    - ... is distributed over Technic Launcher, CurseLauncher/Twitch Launcher, FTB Launcher or ATLauncher

    - ... isn't outdated.

    - ... is available for free

    - ... has it's description and documentation on the platform where it's distributed over available in English language

    - ... has at least 10000 downloads

    - ... has a separate server pack available

    - ... is based on a Minecraft version newer than 1.9


    The title of a modpack request should be something like this:


    [Modpack Request] Modpack name here


    In the thread itself you just need to provide the name, the link to the modpack and a short description of the modpack(in your own words and at least 15 words). Your modpack should have a server version. It should also be hosted on ATL, Technic, Curse or FTB and be pretty popular. We won't accept any small, custom modpacks. Also, it is not important how many mods a modpack includes! We won't add modpacks running on Minecraft version 1.7.0 and older.


    Example for a good modpack request:


    [Modpack Request] Attack of the B-Team
    Hello Aternos Team,
    can you please add the Modpack "Attack of the B-Team"?
    Link to the modpack: http://technicpack.net/modpack/attack-of-the-bteam.552556
    Attack of the B-Team is the first modpack from the Technic Launcher team. It includes already known mods, such as NEI, MrCrayfish's Furniture Mod and combines these with new unique mods such as qCraft and Tropicraft.
    Thank you!


    Where to find the modpack?
    TechnicPack Modpacks
    Feed The Beast Modpacks
    Google :)
    We will most likely add modpacks from the TechnicPack or FTB Launcher, because modpacks that are not in one of these launchers are often very unpopular.


    After you have submitted your request, just wait for our response. Modpack requests need a longer time to process, maybe some weeks or more, so be patient.


    Writing your mod request
    Before you write a mod request, make sure your mod is popular


    Before you request your mod, please check if your mod...
    - ... and all the dependencies are available on the Curseforge mod index. We won't accept mods that are not in there! The mod must be officially distributed over that platform, any type of reuploads etc. are not allowed.
    - ... isn't outdated. To do so just look into the "facts"/"informations" section on the right side of the mods resource website
    - ... is available for free

    - ... has it's description and documentation on the platform where it's distributed over available in English language

    - ... has at least 1000 downloads


    The title of the Mod request should look like this:


    [Mod Request] Mod XYZ


    In the Thread itself, please provide the following information:
    - Name of the mod
    - Link to the mod (not the download link, just the link to the mod page)
    - A small description of the requested plugin in your own words and which consists of at least 15 words!


    Here is an example for a mod request:


    [Mod Request] Tinkers Construct


    Hello Aternos Team,
    can you please add the Mod "Tinkers Construct"?
    Link to the mod: https://www.curseforge.com/min…mc-mods/tinkers-construct
    Tinkers' Construct is a mod about putting tools together in a wide variety of ways, then modifying them until they turn into something else. The tools never disappear and can be named and changed to your heart's desire. Once you make them, they're yours forever. Many different materials can be used to make your tools.

    After you have submitted your request, just wait for our response, we we typically answer within a week, but sometimes we need longer, so just be patient.



    Best regards,


    Bennett from the Aternos Team
