LoreLocks is a plugin which allows you to physically secure your chests with chest locks and traps.


  • Physical, Craftable Locks
  • Lockpicking
    • Innovative system to pick locks
    • Pickproof locks
  • Keys for locks



Default Locks

Locks come in 6 difficulties, 1-5 change the cylinder count of the lock and the 6th difficulty makes the lock unpickable, or in other words only the person which has the key can open the lock.

To create a key of a lock simply drop a lockpick on it.

Depending on the difficulty locks have a different amount of cylinders

  • Difficulty 1 has 3 cylinders
  • Difficulty 2 has 4 cylinders
  • Difficulty 3 has 5 cylinders
  • Difficulty 4 has 6 cylinders
  • Difficulty 5 has 7 cylinders

Then place it in the first slot of the chest (upper left slot) to lock the chest. Make sure to create a key by dropping a lockpick onto the lock before locking the chest if you want to avoid picking your own chest every time.

If you forget to create a key from an unpickable lock ask an admin for help, he can bypass the lock and open the chest for you.


Default Traps

Traps are items which will secure your chest even more, to add a trap to a chest place it in the second slot, right next to the lock.

They are triggered when a player fails to pick the chest, i.E. whenever he clicks the wrong cylinder and the lock gets reset.

Types of traps

The damage trap

Damage traps damage the player which is trying to pick the lock every time he fails to pick the right cylinder. Power determines the amount of hearts (not half hearts) which are taken away.

The explosive trap

Explosive traps create an explosion on the location of the player failing to pick the lock. The explosion does not damage any blocks. For the power of explosive traps check this wiki article.

The poison trap

Poison traps apply the poison potion effect to the player failing, the power attribute determines the level of the poison effect.

The power attribute ranges from 1-127.

    I'm having this strange issue where the recipes don't seem to work until I reload the plugin. The plugin works fine, no errors at all, all custom config options work, I just hate having to reload the plugin every single time I restart my server. Please fix.

    Feel free to PM me, I'll usually respond!

    I just hop you are going to fix it, and quick, i really need it dude, and please don't tell me it's not only 3 line of code, because it worked, now it doesn't, you know where the bug is coming, so i don't know why this ain't fixed already.

    When i have a problem i always fix it as soon as i can.

    Beside this is not acceptable to not being able to use your plugin because of that, and you don't even say it in the main page, so thanks to me i can warn people using your plugin, that it does not work well or at all.

    Back from vacation and working on hte plugin again. Only because it are only 3 lines in code does not mean it is easy to fix. The results I get in my tests are varying glitchy.

    @KeanuFox: Go

    It is kinda the same althought some things are easier as the bukkit API is very broad with it's features.

    Like you know all and i do know shit ?

    Dude, don't tell me what is taking time and what's not, easy for you to say that if you know nothing about configuration/programing at all.

    But i have a server to run, and i was using this plugin for what it proposes, now there is a major bug, so don't tell me to be patient or something. (I waited 3 months already).

    Your comment is completly useless there, and you just want to bash someone and feel powerful.

    Have a good day.

    The default value isn't too awful. Programming is alot of work, be patient.

    Haha thanks for the in-depth explanation xD, I've actually begun watching mod tutorials and I ran into some deprecated code! I enjoy this plug in so im gunna make some Lock items to replace the iron bar with :D. Im new to the modding thing, but hopefully I will figure out things like adding new enchants and adding a skill system since there are no good option for skilling. I just dont like mcmmo that much. ):

    How much harder is it to program a plugin compared to a mod?

    @Der_Wisch: Go

    Man tell me what are you doing for the major bug, that you know how to fix it but don't do anything ?????

    Seriously this is only 2/3 lines in the config files which make your plugin not working properly, why are you not fixing it, for the moment everybody has to use default value which is ridiculous...

    Can you release a version, and please a version for 1.7.2 R0.3 which fix this breakchance bug.

    I repeat, this bug appear when you change any value of the breakchance stuff, the plugin just doesn't seem to work anymore when you change those settings, but as for the rest it seems to work just fine.

    So please do something and verify your plugin.

    @KeanuFox: Go

    Because Minecraft is removing the ID's in favor of easier mod developing with the upcoming modding api and consistence of data. A value of 264 could stand for everything (we all know it's diamond but it COULD stand for everything) while 'diamond' would clearly indicate that it is a diamond. They also want to prefix it with for example 'minecraft:' for vanilla items (making a diamond 'minecraft:diamond') so if I was to create a mod with the new modding api from this plugin 'lorelocks:lock' would be 100% clear the a 'lock' from the 'lorelocks'.

    I think there was a tweet from jeb or dinnerbone about it but I don't find it right now.

    As ID's will be 'removed after 1.8.x' bukkit considers IDs now deprecated so people stop using them and the transition to the new system will be as smooth as possible.
