MobCatcher
Capture mobs and get eggs legitimately:

Version: 3.18

Hey Everybody!

So after looking into spigot a bit, I've decided that when I am back in town from visiting my family at the end of next week I'll be moving this project over to spigot!

I've not decided on my price point yet, but allowing you guys to buy my work will really help support me, keep me motivated, and it should be a good thing for everyone. You guys will get your updates faster, better content overall, and better support with my attention being back on this project.

Thank you all for your support on Bukkit and for 181,000+ downloads so far! I hope to see you all soon on SpigotMC!

MobCatcher allows players to capture mobs and get the corresponding spawn eggs. This is useful for trading and transporting mobs from player to player or even across worlds. As well as having a configurable capture item, MobCatcher also boasts configurable mob types and item costs per capture, bringing a new economic value to mob types both peaceful and hostile. MobCatcher is able to store and recall mob specific data saved to specific spawn eggs. This means things like capturing and spawning colored sheep, baby animals, and tamed wolves is possible! This is done via a separate .dat file which saves data for each mob and removes it when that mob is spawned.Try it out on your server today!

This plugin collects basic usage information for mcstats.org. You may opt out in the generated pluginMetrics config file.

MobCatcher will NOT work if you are not using the version of CB it was intended for. Due to the Bukkit "safeguard' system, MobCatcher will break every version change. Do NOT post tickets or comments about ClassNotFoundExceptions or infinite spawning glitches as these are caused by you using the wrong version.

Before posting a bug, check your server console for a giant red error message.

    @lucasdidur: Go

    This is an incredibly complicated plugin to update as it uses a good amount of native minecraft code. A lot of the features break every time the game changes and each update requires extensive testing. It also doesn't make any business sense at this point since I'm working on moving to spigot premium.

    I'm also working on a mobcatcher lite version that will be free but lack most of the features of the full version. I'm hoping I can make this version with just Spigot api so that it doesn't need to be updated as often

    Why do not you let the code source available, so who knows program not need to wait for an official update to use? Because when an update comes out is always the same story: /

    Updating to spigot? Awesome! :D I love this plugin but was so upset when it stopped working after the spigot update. Also, if you could change some stuff.. Could you make it possible in config to disable the swooshing sound, and the ability to disable the custom eggs?

    @MikeGold: Go

    That's what I was going to do. I assume once you buy it the updates are free, but I don't actually know that. That's what I'm shooting for and I'll figure out how to make that work

    Just post a link to spigot here when you create an update. I won't mind paying if it's not payment for every single update.

    You can make money on spigot? I'll definitely have to look into that. Thanks.

    Still has to wait until I'm done visiting my family tho

    @Malikk65 you could move this plugin to spigot and charge like 5 USD. It'd give you a good amount of cash for your hard work since it's a popular plugin.
