News: CraftArrows 2 is here! It's almost like an entirely new plugin!

Crafting Recipes

UPDATING TO CraftArrows v2? READ THIS FIRST:

CraftArrows 2.0 is almost a complete recode. A lot of bugs have been fixed, arrows have been added and more features added. However, as a result you are required to use a NEW config file. You can copy most parts of your old one, but you have to do it manually. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! BACKUP YOUR OLD CONFIG!

CraftArrows adds 24 new arrows to your server. Each arrow is highly customizable, you can disable, set the duration and power and even change it's crafting recipe! Some arrows have special settings like: Auto-Cleanup, Block-Damage, Extra-Damage, Heal-Amount etc.

PLEASE NOTE: These arrows are NOT identified by ID's. They all have the SAME ID as the normal arrow. If you ask me to give you the ID's, I will IGNORE your post. Get a better Kit's plugin which supports lore/name!

Currently included are:

  • Teleport Arrows - Teleports you to where ever the arrow hits
  • Shuffle Arrow - Change position with the player/monster hit
  • Poison Arrow - Apply poison to your target
  • Weakness Arrow - Apply weakness to your target
  • Blinding Arrow - Blind your target
  • Confusion Arrow - Confuse your target
  • Explosive Arrow - Create an explosion where your arrow hits
  • Tnt Arrow - Explode on contact with a player/monster (doesn't destroy blocks)
  • Crippling Arrow - Slows down your target
  • Lightning Arrow - Strike down a lightning where ever the arrow hits
  • Piercing Arrow - Does bonus damage on armored targets
  • Razor Arrow - Does bonus damage to unarmored targets
  • Fire Arrow - Sets target on fire, sets blocks on fire
  • Pull Arrow - Pulls enemy hit towards you
  • Blood Arrow - Heals for an configurable amount when hitting an enemy
  • Torch Arrow - Places a torch where you shoot the arrow at
  • Net Arrow - Places webs around a location or player (Setting to auto-cleanup)
  • Water Arrow - Places a water source block (Setting to auto-cleanup)
  • Sound Arrow - Plays scary & loud sounds to whoever it hits
  • Push Arrow - Pushes stuff away from you
  • Vortex Arrow - Sucks enemies in the direction of the arrow
  • Forcefield Arrow - Pushes enemies away from the arrow
  • Wither Arrow - Shoots an actual witherskull
  • Ice Arrow - Turns water to ice
  • Medic Arrow - Heals hit player

All arrows can be individually disabled in the config file. The duration and power (where applicable) for potion effects can be changed to your preference. Blinding and Confusion don't scale with power (This is how it works in MineCraft!)

Additional features (can be disabled):

  • Skeletons now shoot ALL non-environmental harmful arrows (no explosive arrows)
  • Skeletons drop special arrows
  • Dispensers can now shoot special arrows using: CraftDispenser

Video for v1.1

It ended up a bit longer than I expected, skip towards the end if you just want to see the config

Permission nodes:

Unless you disable a certain arrow, everyone will be able to craft it. If they do not have the correct permission, their arrows will act like regular arrows. Not using a permission plugin? Simply set "UsePermissions" to false in the config file!

Changelog

2.0 So many things:

  • New arrows including: FusRohDah, Medical, Vortex, Forcefield, Ice, wither, water and more!
  • Infinity arrow bugfixed for real!
  • Water and Net arrow now clean up after use
  • You can now specify META-VALUE of a crafting component
  • Almost a complete re-code.
  • Skeletons shoot special arrows
  • Skeletons drop special arrows and more!

1.6

  • Added "Amount" variable to each Arrow in the config file, it sets how many arrows should be produced per craft.
  • Fixed a update loop that caused the plugin to try to update on every restart
  • Improved teleport algorithm to preserve the players view direction when teleporting, instead of inverting it in the direction the arrow was facing.

1.5

  • fixed blood arrows throwing an error if health was full

I tested this with 1.5.1 (CB build 2717) and neither crafting nor shooting arrows threw any errors. Please update to a newer build AND more importantly CHECK YOUR CONFIG FILE FOR ERRORS! Nullpointer exceptions often means your config file is missing something/a material is incorrect.

If the error persists, delete your config file and restart your server. (back up your config beforehand if you've made changes).

1.4

  • Added Net Arrows (Webs spawned not yet configurable)
  • Fire Arrows now set blocks on fire (can be turned off, see "BurnBlocks: true", set to false)
  • Added option to turn off Infinity Enchantment not using up special arrows, will now shoot normal arrows instead (Default is off, if you want Infinity enchantment to work set "InfinityBowWorks: false" to true)
  • You can now set the name of the arrow.
  • Replaced old Description value and changed name value, IF YOU ARE ALREADY USING THIS PLUGIN, CHANGING DESC. WILL RENDER ALL YOUR OLD CRAFTED ARROWS USELESS! DO NOT GENERATE A NEW CONFIG FILE UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR OLD ARROWS TO BE USELESS!

    So, I've a small problem with this plugin. As said above, "These arrows are NOT identified by ID's. They all have the SAME ID as the normal arrow. If you ask me to give you the ID's, I will IGNORE your post. Get a better Kit's plugin which supports lore/name!"

    Therein lies the problem. Essentials supports both lore and names. This is my config for your arrow:

    - 262 6 name:&6Shuffle_Arrow lore:&o&5Switch_position_with_your_target

    But it still behaves like an ordinary arrow. Any tips on how to fix this?

    Don't be so cynic, I also dev, I just give you some ideas to you to improve your plugin. If you're fed up with it, just tell it softly.

    @Altyra: Go

    "Quick" solution haha. I'll just tell the plugin to do it, alrightey. Ohwait, I actually have to code it. Nope. MoArrows did it because the arrows werent real. This plugin uses actual physical arrows which would mean shuffling the inventory around and that will get laggy real quick. besides, the 2.0 version of this plugin still works fine and I'm done making plugins forever (or a really long time).

    @ALL

    STOP DOWNLOADING v1.7!! IT'S OLD AND IT WONT WORK. DOWNLOAD v2 INSTEAD!! IT WORKS.

    I've found a quick solution to improve it, the plugin MoArrows used this, but it doesn't exist anymore :

    Usage: - left click with bow to cycle through arrow types - Shift+left click to cycle backwards

    Hi,

    I've tried your plugin which is really great, I have only one thing to say : you should create a keybind to swap to next types of arrows, a bit like the mod Ropes + which allow to quickly swap Arrow type.

    Update for 1.7.10 and add more arrows, pretty please.

    Is there a way to incorporate a smart bow into the plugin? A regular bow could shoot all types of arrows, but a a smart bow could have a its own crafting recipe and would be able to toggle arrows. Basically you would have like 12 poison arrows, 3 explosive arrows, and 43 teleport arrows. when you left shift + left click or something it would toggle through your arrows. So you dont have to switch anything. This would only toggle for arrows in your inventory. A way of displaying the arrow your on would be by the bows name, or use the Boss Bar GUI. Then the name of the arrow would be the boss name, and the HP could be the amount of arrows out of 64. So you could also have a visual representation.

    Hello... This may just be me, but the Crafting Recipes .gif does not show ALL bows. Please Update :)

    Hey dude, ive a Problem.

    The "Piercing Arrow" makes no more than 4 damage. I have set in the config the damage to 30, but it just does not make more damage.
