Installing or updating

  1. Download the latest version of the plugin
  2. Place the RecipeManager.jar file in the plugins folder and start/restart the server
  3. Now the plugins/RecipeManager/ folder is created which contains configuration files (.yml) and documentation files (.html)

NOTE If you're upgrading from 1.x versions of RecipeManager, please first delete all files and folders except recipes folder from your RecipeManager folder before installing version 2, this will keep your folder clean because a lot of files have been renamed and this way will be less confusing.

Also some recipes or flags might not work like in 1.x versions, please re-test your recipes.

Using the plugin

  • Run the plugin at least once to allow the .html files to be generated then start with 'basic recipes.html'.
  • Plugin settings can be configured in "plugins/RecipeManager/config.yml"
  • When you're done editing, type rmreload in server console to reload everything without a server restart.
  • Commands and permissions can be found in 'commands & permissions.html' file.

    @xH3LLRAIZ3Rx: Go

    There's a few plugins in there that could potentially be conflicting. Can you replicate the issue with only RecipeManager?

    @xH3LLRAIZ3Rx: Go

    The recipes you provided work for me in both Bukkit and Spigot. Are you using the latest RecipeManager? Do you have any other plugins that would affect furnaces?

    @iluis: Go

    Any time you have recipes that use the same material:data ingredients, you will need to chain the results like this:

    @displayresult first // Makes each result work as a different recipe instead of by chance
    rabbit_hide + rabbit_hide
    = leather_armor
    @name Weak Armor
    @ingredientcondition rabbit_hide | name Small Rabbit Hide
    = leather_armor
    @name Medium Armor
    @ingredientcondition rabbit_hide | name Medium Rabbit Hide

    The reason behind this is that Minecraft only uses material and data to determine if a recipe is different, so even though there are other attributes, Minecraft will ignore them. RecipeManager takes the one recipe and then checks the ingredients before it is crafted in order to give the proper result.

    Hey, is this intentional or is this a limitation? Okay so let me explain what I am trying to do first. I made it so that you can craft some armor from rabbit hide right? But the rabbit hide has a name and has a lore, the name being "Small Rabbit Hide." This is weak armor of course since you are crafting it with Small Rabbit Hides, now here comes the part on where it gets annoying, I have another recipe that is exactly the same as the last one, only this time the armor is stronger and the name and lore of the Rabbit Hide is different, the name being "Medium Rabbit Hide." Whenever I try to load up both recipes it never works, is there an explanation why?

    @xH3LLRAIZ3Rx: Go

    What is the recipe you are using? There's nothing that I know of in Spigot that would affect the naming of items.

    @KsenMih: Go

    Brewing Stands have very a very limited API in Bukkit. It is possible to make other items work, but it is not as easy so it may take some time.
