Lava Furnace - Furnaces that run on lava:

The original idea of this plugin was to allow players to create a furnace that would run on lava but not consume buckets. Beginning in v1.3 Minecraft returns buckets to the user when used in a furnace. So, that LavaFurnace feature is not necessary anymore. However, this plugin has been about so much more then that original idea for quite some time now.

Lava Furnace allows for customization by admins for fuel burn time, smelt/cook time, per player cook times and amount of furnaces per player. There are production chests for fueling and smelting. The furnace is smart and can output redstone current to tell you when it needs fueled and when its chests have items in them. All these features and more are customizable by admins for personal preference in balancing or even cheating if you so choose. The Lava Furnace plugin gives back so much more then a simple bucket from lava bucket fuel.


  • User created Furnaces that run on lava
  • Also can be used with regular fuel sources through the Minecraft furnace interface.
  • Potential to create infinitely fueled furnaces via config file
  • Can set furnace burn times up to 2147483647 via config
  • Can set furnace cook times from 1 to 10x normal speed via config
  • Can define the blocks a furnace is created from via config

  • Supports many different Permissions plugins
  • OPs fallback if permissions not used.
  • Lava level is easily viewable through glass door and changes with burn time of furnace
  • Optional small or large Production Chests (*based on Zarius's idea)
  • Optional Custom Smelt-ables via config
  • Production chest smelt priority from TOP LEFT to BOTTOM RIGHT
  • Per user cook times, per item cook times from 1 to 10x normal speed via commands
  • Per user group Build limits
  • Source chest can be used as a fuel chest
  • Lavafurnace Sign can show remaining Lava fuel percent
  • Redstone outputs for smeltables, processed chests and fuel supply
  • Better compatibility with plugins that like to add buckets to lava fueled furnaces
  • Smarter Furnaces now only use lava fuel from the crucible when there is something to smelt
  • Can connect with AutoSort plugin for automated fueling

    This plugin continues to be one of the most loved features of our server. I just wanted to say thanks. Plugin version 1.651 is working great on 1.7.10.

    @Barnsey3017: Go

    You can assign a lava furnace production chest as an autosort chest by using the group name Lavafurnace on the autosort sign. Then any item you assign to the lavafurnace group in autosort will be placed into the production/autosort chest. This includes lava buckets and / or fuel items for the furnace. Also things like food and ore will be sent the chest if you put those items in the lavafurnace autosort group.

    Note about this is on the autosort help page toward the bottom near the videos.

    Welp, I'm done waiting for bukkit to update the api. I've released the 1.6mc hotfix version for the permissions bug. No official support for 1.7. Use at your own risk on 1.7 servers.

    Is there any possible way you'll be releasing the code for the community to see! :D

    @rustyshakelford2: Go

    While craftbukkit (The server) has updated to 1.7, Bukkit (The API) has not. There is nothing to change because the API is still 1.6 only. It is possible you are having an issue with player names having color codes in them. Color Code Ticket

    If that is not the case, then I currently do not have the API available to me to make any bug fixes for 1.7

    An update for this would be appreciated. In 1.7 furnace creation fails and furnaces untouched since 1.6 in the same world no longer work.
