NBTEditor allows easy customization of many aspects of Minecraft, through the modification of NBT tags. This is not like any other NBT editor, entity customization is easy, using a book based GUI.

Features include:

  • Customization of entities;
  • Customization of spawners;
  • Renaming of items;
  • Creation of multi-effect potions, with no limits;
  • Enchantment of items, with no limits;
  • Dyeing of leather armor, with any RGB color;
  • Creation of player heads;
  • and much more...

Edit now, spawn later: The Book of Souls is most powerful feature of the NBTEditor, it allows for easy entity customization. Create bosses, custom villagers, flying creepers, flower pots or anything you like. No data files, no one-time customization, just keep the book safe and you can spawn as many entities as you like.

In addition to editing entities, you can edit spawners, potions, items (name, lore and enchantments) as well as player heads, beacons and jukeboxes.

All Items, Entities and Spawners are fully compatible with the Vanilla Minecraft!
Great for creating adventure maps!

The NBTEditor is NOT dead!

    @TitanFoxx: Go

    Left clicking with a snowball will just "smash[ing] you in the face with it". I think you mean right clicking?

    Hi Goncalomb! Any chance the version with BoS rabbit is ready yet?

    Hey, I was curious if you could possibly add an ability for BoS mobs to "left click" items. For example if I give a BoS mob a snowball it will throw it as a projectile and not just try smashing me in the face with it.

    Thanks to all the people that are posting the bugs here and through email.

    Unfortunately I haven't had much time to fix/update code. With 1.8, this requires a huge code update. The NBTEditor v1.2 was just a compatibility update, apparently it did more harm than good, it now has multiple errors in several places.

    I'll probably be able to start fixing this next week. I'm strongly considering merging my other plugin (CustomItemsAPI) into the NBTEditor they share a substantial amount of code. This means that I don't have to keep updating all three projects separately (2 plugins and one library with the shared code) which is a real pain in the neck right now.

    @PizzaHungry: Go

    I agree. It's a very cool plugin, but infortunately, there are bugs on books of souls.

    @Spectatore: Go

    Weird. I've tried and it didn't loot for me.

    @lramos15: Go

    I don't think it's possible at this moment.
