MobCatcher
Capture mobs and get eggs legitimately:

Version: 3.18

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 seems to be messing up stackability for normal creeper eggs, Im running 3.17 for mc 1.7.9 which is the proper version, it was working for a while but has gone back to not stacking again. Even when i disabled Mob catcher in the world it didnt allow stacking. I have the SaveDataAndRemoveStackability set to false and it wont stack still. In creative mode im able to stack the eggs but cant while in survival. If anyone knows how to fix my problem please message me.

    Edit: I restarted the server and it allowed the eggs to be stacked again. Not sure whats going on.

    So you told me the one labeled:

    "R: MobCatcher 3.18 for 1.7.10.R0.1 #3105 for CB 1.7.9-R0.1 Jul 19, 2014" was for 1.7.10

    So therefore I assumed that... R: MobCatcher 3.17 for 1.7.9-R0.1 #3078 for 1.7.4 May 08, 2014 was for 1.7.9

    Yet I keep getting an error about wrong Craftbukkit version. Why is it this can't just work without breaking everything? After installing it, I cannot move anything in my inventory or equip anything on my character. There are two other plugins I installed alongside it, but this is the one that gave an error.
