Open anyone's inventory as a chest in real time! Works with offline players! Open ender chest of any player via command!


This plugin allows you to open any player's inventory or ender chest and interact with it in real time. You can also do it for offline players! Additionally, you can also open any chest that is blocked with blocks above it with AnyChest and open chests silently (no sound or opening animation) with SilentChest. Some other nice features of the plugin include the ability to access the armor slots of player inventories as well as being able to force drop items in a player inventory as if you were them by moving them into the 5 unused slots in openinv.


  • Read-only permissions for OpenInv and OpenEnder! Just don't give the editinv and editender permissions nodes!
  • Administrators can modify any user's inventory or ender chest contents as they wish, in real time.
  • Access from anywhere! No distance or obstacle limitations.
  • Permissions support.
  • Player inventories and ender chests of any player can be opened. Even for offline players!
  • Using the openinv or openender command without any arguments opens the last accessed player's inventory/ender chest.
  • Use sticks or any (configurable) item and toggles for quick access.
  • Search all online players for a certain item in their inventory or ender chest.
  • Use a sign to perform openinv for convenience.
  • Protect players from openinv with exempt permission, and bypass protection with override permission.
  • Cross-world openinv protection.
  • Self-opening protection.
  • Open chests that are blocked because they have a solid block on top with the 'Any Chest' feature.
  • Silent opening of chests with no sound or opening animation.
  • Force drop other player's items (by putting it in the 5 unused slots in openinv)

    So, just for clarity's sake, can you show us where we were acting uptight about anything? Because as far as I can tell, it's simply a bug report. I think it's you who needs to relax and stop reading into things :)

    @Johandrex: Go

    Or use bukkit's commands.yml to remap instead.

    This account is so old that I don't even use that username anymore.
    I now go by "robomwm"
