MineralManager

MineralManager Action Shot

Mineral Manager

This plugin is designed to allow server administrators to have tighter control over their server's economy as well as introduce new and interesting experiences for their players. MineralManager is the second generation of the MineralVein plugin; with improved performance, customization, control, and reliability it makes a big jump forward from the original concept.

This plugin works by allowing specified blocks to regenerate after they've been broken. From Cactus to Diamond, from Dirt to Logs, admins can control which blocks are allowed to respawn, where they're allowed to respawn, and what should take their place when they're broken. This plugin also allows for a bit of randomness in its regeneration by using a degradation parameter that causes blocks to sometimes forgo respawning when they're broken.

Mineral Manager Action Shot

You can do anything from creating public mines near spawn filled with iron and coal that never breaks so new players get started quicker to having secret forests that regenerate completely after enough time as passed. Diamonds would become something for your players to guard and protect rather than something to find, mine and move on. An innocent patch of grass could even have gold ore hidden inside. The possibilities are endless and the excitement is contagious! Make your server unique and fun with this easy, yet intricate plugin.

    Could you configure to be random the block regenerated (with a percentage of each material)

    Everything works fine until I type "Yes" to create a region. When I do that, it kicks me and gives me this error.

    Internal Exception: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The validated object is null

    @iSleepzZz: Go

    This is probably a stupid question but you have assigned regions that you're doing this in, right? you know it's not a global system?

    I'm confused why this is not working at all... No errors whatsoever but when I place a coal down and it has the degreation of 0.00 (not ever degrating) and I mine it, it doesnt replace with bedrock (like i put in config) nor does it every respawn in 30sec? I'm using the 1.7.2 build of bukkit.

    Is there any simple way to get this mod to work properly with mob manager? They seem to conflict over the /mm command, but even setting up aliases, this mod won't work properly if mob manager is also installed, and I don't know why.

    I have figured out the problem and it is BKCommonLib which screwed everything up!

    Hi All!

    Sorry I haven't been responding to your posts! I have been super busy lately with work and haven't had the time to hop onto bukkit and see how things are going!

    That said, I went ahead a tried testing the plugin to see what errors you are all having and I can't seem to replicate them.

    I'm using the latest dev build of bukkit. (http://dl.bukkit.org/downloads/craftbukkit/get/02540_1.7.2-R0.4/craftbukkit-dev.jar)

    I'm connecting to the server via Minecraft 1.7.2 and I'm simply creating a world region and then breaking blocks, shutting down the server, and then restarting it. Everything is respawning as it should, I would say that the bug is likely due to a problem on Bukkits side, as that has happened a number of times before with development builds.

    Please let me know if the problem is resolved by moving to the development build of bukkit that I linked.

    Thanks!

    Yep. The regeneration regions break when the server is restarted.
    The plugin is unfortunatly unusable! =/

    I did multiple tests, even did it with the default config and it still seemed to crash. The exception is generates is literally the classic "Is it up to date?" one.

    Please get back to me with this. When its fresh, it works and when I set it up it also works with regenerating the ores. As soon as I restart, it breaks. I think its with the whole logging of which blocks need to regenerate, because as I remember when I was doing my tests, if I set a region and didnt break anything it stayed working, if I didnt set a region and just left it, it kept working, if I set a region and broke something in it, after a restart it would break.

    On restart, the plugin breaks for me! I even downloaded the specified CraftBukkit Dev and tried the specified Spigot to see if the version 2.2.1 would work but it doesnt. After restart it says its out of date and thats it.

    Please fix! I really need this!
