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 2.0 is coming!

    When I try to build the 2.0 version, it suffers from a build failure. It says

    [ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-compiler-plugin:3.3:compile (default-compile) on project nbteditor: Compilation failure [ERROR] No compiler is provided in this environment. Perhaps you are running on a JRE rather than a JDK?

    I run my git bash on buildtool's folder, am I doing something wrong?

    does this work with minecraft 1.9?

  • Avatar of goncalomb goncalomb Apr 21, 2016 at 12:57 UTC - 0 likes

    @soonguun201: Go

    Because of the new changes to armor/off-hand/chances on Minecraft 1.9. Yes, the '/bos dropchance' command was removed. Two new variables were added to set the drop chances.

    • /bos var HandDropChances <main> <off>
    • /bos var ArmorDropChances <feet> <legs> <chest> <head>

    I'll probably add this to the FAQ too.

    Did you ever delete the drop chance commands?

    I use the current nbt editor-2.0-SNAPSHOT.

    But should not / bos dropchance ~~~ command ...

    The most important command!

    @suprsoup: Go

    Use '/bos dropchance 0 0 0 0 0' (0% on all slots). Using the command without any values just clears it to the default value (0.085 I think).

    Help! I created a BoS, it is a zombie with iron armour. Is there any way to make it not drop the iron armor but still drop rotten flesh? I tried doing /bos dropchance it said "dropchance cleared" but when I tried killing the Zombie a couple of times, it still continued to drop iron armor and rotten flesh. Help!

    But overall, nice plugin! :) Would reccomend!

    Edit: Basically, I don't want the Zombie to drop any of the things it's holding. But just the rotten flesh, if it is not possible, tell me :)
