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.

    I was going to install this, but then I saw in red:

    "MobCatcher will NOT work if you are not using the version of CB it was intended for."

    Then the download for the latest version says:

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

    My question is this: WHAT VERSION IS THIS FOR?!!! 1.7.10 or 1.7.9? This is VERY confusing.

    @Pocketkid2: Go

    Making the plugin less version specific is not possible without losing most of the features that make it so unique. Believe me, I wish it was more than you will ever know, lol.

    @Xiclitchli: Go

    It's still alive, I just don't have the time to keep it as up to date as I used to. Once I finish up this other major project of mine I'll put the time into this and my other plugins to get them up to date.

    So, is this plugin still alive?

  • Avatar of Pocketkid2 Pocketkid2 Jul 10, 2014 at 16:16 UTC - 0 likes

    Can you update this to either 1.7.10 or make the code less version-specific? I want to use the latest spigot builds AND this plugin, which cannot currently happen...

    Hello, players on my server are able to catch mobs with the egg and 5 redstone even when their group does not have the permission node. I did not touch the config.yml and the plugin's version is 3.17. I looked throughout my permissions.yml and only saw the permission node in the donator group, the players that are catching the mobs are part of the default group. My server is running CraftBukkit version git-Spigot-1476 (MC: 1.7.9) (Implementing API Version 1.7.9-RO.2-SNAPSHOT). Thx.

    @Reaper011095: Go

    open the config.yml using Notepad (for easy). You will see this :

    CaptureItem:

    Enabled: true

    ItemName: Mineball <<< I just set it the item must be named Mineball to capture

    ItemID: 332 <<< I changed egg to snowball

    UsedOnCapture: true

    ReturnedOnSpawn: false
