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.

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

    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.

    works flawless, Great job.

    I also have an suggestion: When cathing an mob fails, a customsable price shoud be charged. So serve owner can decide how much or if its free

      Pig: 250.0
      Sheep: 250.0
      MushroomCow: 1000.0
      Pig: 100.0
      Sheep: 100.0
      MushroomCow: 400.0

    If I had helped you, a like would be nice. Thank you.

    Have a nice day,

    I have not tested it with AnimalProtect but it should work if the animals are protected from getting harmed by projectiles.

    Let me know i it's not working and I will look into it.

    (It's not going to work with Worldguard alone as Worldguard as you know does not protect animals.)

    is it hooked into WorldGuard and AnimalProtect, so only owners or members of a region can catch mobs?

    @shansen1 Thanks for the information, I will likely wait for a while to try 7.8 until I update the server to 1.7 anyway. The EggCatcher plugin not working in claims shouldn't be a huge problem for now.

    Oh wait you need to use a version later than 7.7 it seems. Try the 7.8 beta build.
