    @ShadowDog007: Go

    I'm working on a plugin that handle horse protection with Factions (example: sharing horses between faction members, steal horses when out of power), and it will connect with most horse protection plugins.

    I need to access to horse data and at least few methods to manage horses :

    - Check if an horse is protected by the plugin (via entity uuid?) - Get basic horse data (name, owner, ..) - Protect/delete horse - Being able to hook into horse interactions events (mount, open inventory..), so I can make players of same Faction share their horses (override default behavior). It can be done with custom events.

    (sorry for my bad english)

    @TNTUP: Go

    Err, Horses only makes one connection. It could be another plugin??

    @britaniacraft: Go

    I was asked for an API before, but said person never said what they wanted. I might be able to make one if you want it though. Just let me know what you need.

    Is an API available to work with your plugin ? Or should I just hook with simple this.getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin() ?

    Tried to use MySQL, I wanted to import all player's data horses, It throwed an error "Too many connections", I guess your plugin doesn't close the import connection... Could you fix dat? I have 229 yml files, the last one failed because of the "too many connections", done on my test server.

    although, I have increased maxconnections to 1k, I have 229 files, so... 229 connections? Ay... um well...
