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.

    May its possible to include an Option for Changing the Item?


    Hit an Mob with an Endereye to catch it and remove the Endereye if Catch is Sucessed?

    If the animals are protected from harm then EggCatcher won't catch them. So there's implicit support for all plugins that protects animals.

    Hope to be able to support the Residence plug-in Residence within the animals won't be caught

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

    @shansen1: Go

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

    @LHammonds: Go

    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.
