What is Custom Items?

With custom items you can create items with custom names , recipe, abilities , lores, enchantments and name colors. For example, sword with high damage , instant kills or both. There are many abilities that you can attach on your item. Create a bow with teleport or with explosion on hit. You can combine everything and create very good item. Every item has its permission, permission is optional. You can use this on many things, vip, as reward etc.

Create new item

Every item has 11 values: Name,ID,UseRecipe,UseCustom,UsePermission,DisplayName,Lore,Color,Abilities,Enchantments and EnchantmentsLevel.

  • We must register new item to items.yml
- NewItem
  • Now we add whole item with informations about it
    ID: 276 // 276 is diamond sword
    DisplayName: "New Item"
    UsePermission: false //if permissions are needed to use item
    Abilities: // item abilities
    - Poison
    - Lighting
    - Death
    - This is lore
    - This is another lore
    Color: "§6"
    UseRecipe: false
    UseCustom: true
      KNOCKBACK: 2
  • ID - Minecraft item id.
  • DisplayName - Displays name of item.
  • UsePermission - If permission is required to use item.
  • Abilities - List of item´s abilities.
  • Lore - Item´s lore. (Under item´s name)
  • Color - DisplayName color. (List of colors here)
  • UseRecipe - Item can be created by recipe.
  • UseCustom - Every item has in lore one line of item´s name, this will remove that line if its set to false, but plugin then wont know that is custom item, so abilities wont work.
  • Enchantments - List of item´s enchantments. (List of all enchantments here)
  • EnchantmentsLevel - List of item´s enchantments level.
  • Note: Color codes are here link.
  • Restart server or use /ci reload
  • Item is now completed! You can add it in game by /ci create NewItem yourname


Custom recipes

  • To use custom recipe you must set UseRecipe on item to true
  • Then you must write recipe into recipes.yml


Write every slot in this format : 'slot number': material id.


    '1': 0
    '2': 0
    '3': 0
    '4': 1
    '5': 1
    '6': 1
    '7': 0
    '8': 0
    '9': 0
  • And this is how it looks like.




  • Lighting - Strikes lighting from the sky.
  • SuperFortune - This is like enchant fortune but 3x more powerfull.
  • Death - Instantly kills the target.
  • SuperHit - Hit is 3x bigger.
  • Break - Breaks any block instantly. (except Bedrock)
  • Teleport - Teleports to clicked location. (With bow, this location is where arrow fell on ground)
  • Poison - Poisons the target.
  • Disorient - Disorients the target.
  • Explosion - Creates explosion when you click or hit something.
  • LifeSteal - Converts damage to life.
  • Blind - Blinds the target.
  • Fire - Sets clicked block to fire / Sets hit target to fire.



Every item can have permission, if you want it to have one, then set UsePermission on item to true. Permission will be custom-items.ItemName


For developers


To do list

  • Items can have enchantments with high levels.
  • Items can have ID with data.



  • Q: There is item name in lore, is it a bug?

    @TNTftw21: Go

    Remember that when putting enchantments you have to do this

    Enchantments: - KNOCKBACK (or whatever enchantment you are doing) EnchantmentsLevel: KNOCKBACK: 2 I know that's kinda what you learn right when you open the config but I thought I might mention in case this was your problem.

    @kittsfu: Go

    I know your problem, in the config if you go down in the items.yml you will see on one of the example items right under Lore it will say "Color:" thats where you put your color you want the name to be, now if you are looking to change the color of your lore I think thats not possible with this plugin yet. And make sure you put the "§" symbol before the color code. :)

    @HappyKiller101: Go

    I'm sad to say that putting "Color: "&6"" did not work.

    The weapons titles become like this; "&6Name of Bow", in lightblue color.

    I havent tried any other special character to replace the §. But from i can assume from testing with "&", the creator hasn't enabled any other characters beside the original.

    Does anyone else have the console problem with craftbukkit 1.6.4 and this plugins config with § as color code? Perhaps something on my end is amiss and i'm missing something.
