Anti-Cheat

info

Throughout this guide 'Anticheat(s)' may be referred to as 'AC' or 'ACs'

ACs are an integral part of any public server and help with catching hackers. Since Minecraft's built-in anticheat is practically useless, it's better to turn it off than to endure the constant false positives it spews out.

You should change the following settings within the server.properties file.

...

allow-flight=true

...

Within the spigot.yml file you should also set the following values.

...

moved-wrongly-threshold: 100000.0
moved-too-quickly-multiplier: 100000.0
