What is it?

AntiDrops stops players dropping items. Currently this plugin has options to stop all players, only those in creative mode or ones without the permission "antidrops.bypass". This plugin can prevent users on a creative mode server from spamming item drops and causing large amounts of lag that can result. There is a permission node to allow a certain player to drop items, introduced in 0.4.



AntiDrops is currently on version 2.2 and works with MC 1.7.2 and lower, as this was the latest that it has been tested against.

Update Checker

This plugin utilizes an external version checking system which is not endorsed by BukkitDev, which means that the plugin makes a connection to and the following may occur:

  • The plugins version checked against approved files

The update checker fetches the latest version (from this project's RSS feed [ ] ) including description and version number. You can disable the check and/or automated download via the configuration of this plugin if you decide that you do not want this information to be fetched.

No data is obtained from your server or the machine that it is hosted on

    It tells the player that they can't drop the item but it allows them to drag it out of their inventory and drop it

    @JeffMeikle: Go

    It should still work.

    I'm a plugineer! If you're a dev and are looking for some help (whether that's Java in general or just Bukkit API), hit me up with any questions! I'll be more than happy to help.

    I also make plugins (both public and private) and can do some on request. If a plugin would be public, I am less likely to ask for payment, but if private then yes, payment would be required.

    In other words, you can PM me if you need one made and I'll see what I can do (and how viable it is).

    deny-certain-items: use: true denied-items: - 1 It isn't working for me, I set deny drop to true already.

    I'll work on that now. :)

    I like the plugin but its missing lots of things:

    - Ability to block furnaces, dispensers, droppers, hoppers etc.

    Also: When trying to break a blocked container by left-clicking it, it also denies it (so you're unable to destroy chests while in creative gamemode).

    Thanks for the plugin, i'll start using it when you're able to block the missing containers ;-)

    edit: Please add a command to reload the config so that you don't have to restart the server each time you make changes to the config (i won't ever use /reload).

    Changelog: 2.2 - Built against CB 1.7.2-R0.2 - 1.7 update. Fixes most current bugs and issues.

    Why has release 2.2 been deleted from bukkit?

    edit: nvm.

    @KevinNinja: Go

    Despite showing that it leaves your inventory, it actually doesn't. This plugin blocks it still.

    Next time, before you say "you obviously forgot to stop X", check first. :)

    This plugin works, but you obviously forgot players can go to their inventory and just drag & drop the item out. Please fix that!
