Notes

  • Join us on irc at: irc://esper.net/PlayerHeads
  • If you want more mobs supported send me 1 MC giftcode per mob type, or transfer an old/unused account to me.
  • PlayerHeads is now translatable! Edit "lang.properties" to whatever phrases you desire.
  • lang files will change between releases, when updating be sure to delete the old file if you haven't edited it.
  • If you've given people the * permission node, they will get 100% drop rates. If you don't want this to happen, also give them the negative nodes: -playerheads.alwaysbehead and -playerheads.alwaysbeheadmob
  • If you want to disable head drops in a specific world, use your permission plugin to add the following negative nodes for that specific world: -playerheads.canbehead and -playerheads.canbeheadmob
  • Spawn mob heads with the following names: #creeper #zombie #skeleton #wither #spider #enderman #blaze #horse #squid #silverfish #enderdragon #slime #irongolem #mushroomcow #bat #pigzombie #snowman #ghast #pig #villager #sheep #cow #chicken #ocelot #witch #magmacube #wolf #cavespider

TODO / Known bugs

  • Renamed heads (with an anvil) don't stay renamed after placing and mining them.
  • If custom mob heads get destroyed from flowing water they will temporarily loose their custom display title.
  • "lang_[language]_[country]_[variant].properties" don't seem to work, for now just use the file name "lang.properties"

    @futhead_GouldyFIFA: Go

    Futhead, I have played on servers running 1.7.9 with this plugin working. I don't know why so many are having issues here. They may also be running a development version of the plugin though. Which I just upgraded to on my 1.7.2 server and it seems to run just fine. Although I am still having issues with Enderman and Slime heads. Could be my version on that part.

    @janie177: Go

    so it still works on 1.7.8 servers?

  • Avatar of IrParadox IrParadox May 23, 2014 at 12:53 UTC - 0 likes

    Glad to see this still active. The plugin is working great, I am using CraftBukkit 1.7.2. I am having one little issue that I hope you can help me out with. Enderman and Slime heads do not display as their mob counterpart. Instead they only show up as Steve heads. Is there a fix for this somehow? I have played on another server with playerheads installed just to see if it was just on my end. I had no issues collecting and displaying Endermen heads there. Any ideas why this is?

    Why not use a secondary service to pull the skin? There are loads of them, most have API's too.

    @janie177: Go

    How come another plugin that let you get players head thrue commands still works if this is impossible?

  • Avatar of janie177 janie177 May 23, 2014 at 10:05 UTC - 0 likes

    Mojang changed the way skins are loaded, so now it will most likely be impossible for this to work after 1.7.8. They did roll back some changes in 1.7.9 which will be reapplied when 1.8 hits. So 1.7.9 might work. It does not on my server though.

    Updated to 1.7.9 and this is my only plugin that is broken, Its a massive shame since all my players love this plugin. We have players that have collected hard to get heads as trophys, we have people building buildings as trophy rooms, theres an eco around the heads. We would really appriciate this being fixed asap.

    We noticed that most heads were converted to Skeleton heads, this dousnt sound good.

    @pedrodeigo2: Go

    Use Minecraft 1.7.8 or 1.7.9.

    I think Minecraft 1.7.5 is the reason because with 1.7.9 it works fine.
