MobCatcher

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.

    @palmtree64: Go

    That only affects OPs. For regular users the egg is used either way

    BUG REPORT: Hello Malikk64, In playing around with the plugin, I noticed a bug that I thought unintended. When you throw the chicken egg, it drops the mob spawn egg, then consumes your chicken egg. However, when you left click to capture a mob, it puts the mob spawn egg into your inventory, but it does not use up your chicken egg. Therefore this bug allows you to run around with a single chicken egg and spam left click on mobs to capture them all.

    Thanks for your time, Palmtree64

    P.S. I realize this may be fixed, but I am currently playing in a 1.7.2 bukkit server, so I just thought I'd let you know!

    @dmarsh2k9: Go

    You absolutely need to be on versions of CB and mob catcher that match or you will be getting bugs that I cannot control or fix. Either update your mob catcher to 3.17 or downgrade your cb

    Having an issue between versions Our server is 1.7.9 now, but running 3.16 mobcatcher We get charged for capturing, however no egg drops, this has never happened before we updated, is this happening because we need 3.17?

    @Malikk65

    If you'd make a ticket, I'll make sure I get this fixed for the next release.

    Ticket made. I didn't realize it was a bug, I just thought I was doing something incorrect on my end, hence the more public post instead of a ticket. Thanks.

    @Deiscorides: Go

    Likely something changed in Bukkit and this bug has been here for a long time and no one has noticed, but this used to work properly.

    Your config file looks correct, so I'm sure it's just something in the plugin that needs a little updating (likely for the new damage system). If you'd make a ticket, I'll make sure I get this fixed for the next release.

    MustBeKilled: false MustBeKilled: true

    I can't seem to figure out how to use "MustBeKilled: true". I've been using the "ComplexConfig" settings. When it is set MustBeKilled: true for a mob I can't seem to do anything to capture it. The eggs don't work on it and if I kill it it merely dies, nothing else happens, other than it dropping its loot. There's also no failure message. When I return it to MustBeKilled: false, everything works just fine.

    In the below code, I'm testing the skeleton for this, though this problem occurs for all hostile mobs I try it for. For friendly mobs like the horse, this doesn't even seem to work, as I'm still able to capture it normally. Is there something overriding it or is my config file incorrect? No errors in console.
