Throw 2


This plugin allows the players to get the new Spawn Eggs from Minecraft 1.1 by throwing regular eggs at mobs. It is intended to be simple to set up and use. The plugin is open source and can be forked on github. If you make any changes, pull requests are appreciated.

Current features

  • Configurable mob health limit.
  • Respects animal protection plugins such as GriefPrevention
  • Compatible with all trading plugins.
  • Very simple, throw an egg at a mob and it will be turned into a spawn egg.
  • Permissions support.
  • Configurable catch chance.
  • Configurable cost (vault support, or items).
  • Explosion effects.

Installation and requirements

Vault is not required unless you intend to use it

Download the jar file and the configuration file will be generated on the first startup.

    Can you be more specific on what needs to be updated?

    1.7.9 finally got a Beta build!
    Think we could get a quicky update patch? :)

    I assume it's unaffected but it depends on any api breaking changes in bukkit for 1.8.

    There's no spawn egg for iron golems in Minecraft, so it's not possible.

    Is there any way to capture iron golems? I'm using EggCatcher with SilkSpawners so you can catch mobs with an egg, then craft a spawner with that egg, however, iron golems are not catchable.

    Is this plugin affected by the UUID change in 1.8, thus requiring an update to work properly or will it be unaffected?

    @BlackFing85: Go

    I think for more advanced features like that you will need Mob Catcher.
    But... it's rarely updated, always buggy, and the dev is not very helpful at all. I ditched it in favor of this more simplified plugin.
