MobManager


Description:

  • MobManager's limiter aims to limit the number of mobs that can spawn at one time while still providing the appearance of having lots of mobs (Or less if you really want)
  • MobManager's Abilities allow you to fully customize the difficulty of each mob, per world!
  • MobManager's Bounty component gives you a flexible way to give players rewards when killing mobs
  • MobManager's Spawner gives you total control over where different mobs spawn. Perfect to complete a rpg experience or just add a difficulty to your survival server.

  • Spawn actions performed upon spawns. Send messages to nearby players or run commands when your mob spawns.

What is a component?
A component is simply a part of MobManager. Every component can be enabled/disabled individually from config.yml
To do
  • Add Protection component to MobManager (Protect the world from things like explosions or Endermen picking up blocks)
Note: The above are just ideas, not all of them may happen (If you particularly want one done let me know)
Note: Ordered by importance to me (Higher == More important) (Your needs are important to me :D)

Commands:

  • /mm help - Prints information about all the available commands
  • /mm count - Prints mob counts and limits for each world which MobManager is active. Also prints totals for the server
  • /mm count <WorldName> - Prints mob counts and limits for the specific world
  • /mm butcher - Removes all mobs (Except villagers) from worlds enabled in MobManager
  • /mm butcher <MobTypes> - Removes the given mob types from all worlds enabled in MobManager
  • /mm spawn <MobType> <count> [world] [x] [y] [z] - Spawn a given mob at the location (Or yours)
  • /mm spawnset <AbilitySetName> <count> [world] [x] [y] [z] - Spawn a given mob at the location (Or yours)
  • /mm pspawn <MobType> <count> <Player> - Spawn a given mob on a player
  • /mm pspawnset <AbilitySetName> <count> <Player> - Spawn a given mob on a player
  • /mm abilitysets - Lists all AbilitySet names (Along with the mobtype) which can be used in /mm spawnset
  • /mm mobtypes - Lists all valid EntityTypes for use in configs
  • /mm reload - Reloads MobManagers configs

Note: the count command prints single letters to represent the different categories of mobs.
M = Monster, A = Animal, W = Water Animal (Squid), Am = Ambient Mob (Bats), V = Villagers

Permissions:

  • mobmanager.admin - Gives permission to use all /mm commands (Default: OP)
  • mobmanager.count - Gives permission to use the /mm count command
  • mobmanager.butcher - Gives permission to use the /mm butcher command
  • mobmanager.version - Gives permission to use the /mm version command
  • mobmanager.reload - Gives permission to use the /mm reload command

Configuration:

As of v2.2 MobManagers configuration files consists of three parts
  • config.yml - Contains settings to enable/disable MobManager components
  • Global configs - Contains global configs for each component, located in MobManager/<component>.yml
  • World Configs - Contains settings for each component for each world located in MobManager/worlds/<worldname>/<component>.yml

Every config file contains a header block explaining every setting.

When you first install MobManager world and global configs are auto-magically generated.
By default only MobManagers Limiter is enabled, configs for abilities are generated if the component is enabled
The defaults for the limiter are pretty conservative. So you may wish to increase the limits.
If you need help with the config feel free to PM me and I can make one for you :)
Auto-Update Checker
Mobmanager includes a update checker/downloader. It uses this project page to check for new approved builds. The /mm version command can be used to check if a new version is available on bukkit dev.
The update checker is enabled by default and can be disabled in config.yml by setting EnableVersionCheck to false
The update downloader is disabled by default can be enabled in config.yml by setting EnableAutoUpdater to true

Statistics
MobManager utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to mcstats.org:
  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version
  • MobManager components enabled
All information is publicly available and can be viewed at http://mcstats.org/plugin/Mob-Manager

Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true
Public Test Server
Public test server has been shut down, will try get a new one in the future
Feel free to join and have a look for yourself what MobManager does. Server has two worlds one with MobManager enabled, the other with it disabled. You are allowed to use /time to set the world to night, so monsters spawn on the surface. This server uses default settings for all configs.
Address: mc.forgenz.com
Note: After joining, type /warp dev
Note: The test server only has the limiter component enabled

Please, if you have and questions or feature requests, do not hesitate to ask

    Long time no chat, good to see you're still doing well with this plugin. Why it doesn't have more downloads, I don't really know. ;)

    Anyway, I've gotten this fairly benign error which just spams my console. It occasionally occurs about every tick after the server has just finished starting up, and doing "/mobmanager reload" seems to fix it. I was just wondering if you had any idea what the error could mean.

    Sure, I'd love to include my server IP here. But it's under construction, and I wouldn't want to get sued for players wandering inside and getting hit by a random beam of steel floating about. And no, I doubt plugins would make very good lawyers either. I've never seen a plugin that forced you to sign a contract do so well.

    Ive got problems with applying the mob manager changes to my server. there seems to be no problem with the .yml, but it just doesnt apply. is there anything i have to change except for the ability.yml in order to apply my changes?

    Also, MobManager is reporting 827 mobs as the total in all worlds, but /lagg check reports 1827. How would I explain this huge difference?
  • Avatar of chrisotherwise chrisotherwise Sep 04, 2014 at 13:13 UTC - 0 likes
    <<reply 2336086="">> ok, this is to do with the per-chunk maximums isn't it. However I'm still not sure *exactly* what "81/95" means. Does it mean that there are only a total of 81 hostile mobs alive in the whole world?

    Hi, Many thanks for this plugin, its exactly what I was looking for! I do have a question though about the limiters. In world "world" I have set:
    WorldMaximum: 
      Monsters: 512
      Animals: 320
      Water_Animals: 128
      Ambient: 64
      Villager: 128
    ChunkCalculatedMaximum:
      Monsters: 20
      Animals: 15
      Water_Animals: 6
      Ambient: 6
      Villager: 10
    
    But when I do: /mm count world, I get these values:
    M:81/95, A:355/71, W:1/28, Am:4/28, V:0/47
    
    The maximum values don't match the values in the config. Surely it should say: "M:81/512"? Also the maximum values keep changing. A minute ago it said: M:81/85, now it says 82/99. Please help me understand what;s going on!!
