CraftBook

Logo

CraftBook is a heavily customizable plugin that adds a number of new mechanics to Minecraft with no client mods required. As one of Minecraft's oldest mods/plugins, we were the first to bring you Minecraft computers, Redstone ICs, moving bridges, and more! Here's a short list:

  • Modular, and extremely light on your server.
  • Enable features that you need, disable ones that you don't. Even tweak features to your liking.
  • Adds heaps of mechanics that allow you to mimic large portions of FTB/Tekkit with a vanilla client.
  • Redstone ICs (Logic gates, Sensors, Many others)
  • Elevators for your server so people can jump between floors quickly. (Or smoothly, if you choose so)
  • Working cauldrons so players can cook inside them.
  • Your own custom crafting recipes.
  • Hidden switches for players.
  • Togglable areas and bridges.
  • Chairs you can sit on.
  • Working pipes that can transfer items from place to place.
  • Footprints where your players walk.
  • Mobs and players drop their heads.
  • The ability to bind commands to items, with cool-downs, permissions and timers.
  • And much more... (Seriously, check the wiki)

The CraftBook wiki is currently being revamped! Progress can be viewed here! If you find any issues with the wiki (Especially in pages marked 100% of missing), please report them here.

Getting Started

Installation

Bukkit is currently required.

  1. Install WorldEdit first. (DON'T FORGET THIS)
  2. Install any other plugins required for specific features you want.
  3. Download CraftBook and copy the .jar into plugins/.
  4. Run your server once to generate the files.
  5. Edit plugins/CraftBook/config.yml to your liking, and enable anything you want to use.
    Note: For optimal performance, only enable what you need. If you are running a version prior to 3.8.1, check the config to see if any features are enabled that you don't want.
  6. Restart the server for the settings to take effect.

You'll have to read the wiki (see below) to find the permissions you need.

    @sangen48: Go

    Is that using beta 3?

    Try adding rewards: {}

    To each drop

    @ketchupcoke: Go

    Type is basically item id, and data is sub items.

  • Avatar of ketchupcoke ketchupcoke Jul 20, 2014 at 15:34 UTC - 0 likes

    @Me4502: Go

    Oh ok then, i've found a temporary solution anyway. However, what do you mean by type? Is that durability and sub-items (for example coloured wool)?

  • Avatar of Me4502 Me4502 Jul 20, 2014 at 11:20 UTC - 0 likes

    @ketchupcoke: Go

    That's due to an issue with how bukkit sees recipes. It ignores anything but type and data, and doesn't allow duplicates. I can't really fix this within craftbook.

What is the hardest or most confusing feature of CraftBook to use or setup with help from the wiki? (Please explain reasoning in comments)
