RecipeManager 2

Complex recipes made easy !


NOTE: I will refer to some .html files in here, those files can be found in your /plugins/RecipeManager/ folder after you load the plugin the first time. The html files will also be updated automatically on new versions.

  • Add new recipes:
    • Shaped or shapeless recipes with optionally multiple results
    • Furnace recipes with optional custom cook time and optional special fuel
    • Fuel recipes with custom burning time or even random time from specified range.
    • See 'basic recipes.html' for more info.
  • Making recipes more special with flags, featured flags:
    • @permission to limit a recipe (or result) to specific permission node(s)
    • @remove, @restrict and @override to remove/restrict/override existing recipes, including Minecraft recipes.
    • @ingredientcondition to make extra requirements from ingredients like enchantments, ranged data values, stack amounts, etc
    • @keepitem to keep an ingredient from using up and optionally damaging it in the process
    • @[email protected] and their experience and level counterparts to require/give/take money/exp/level from crafter
    • @cooldown to limit the usage of the recipe
    • And a lot more, see 'recipe flags.html' for all of them including documentation.
  • Flags can also be added to results to make them more special, some featured result flags:
    • @cloneingredient to clone an ingredient's features over to the result, like data value, amount, enchantments, etc
    • @itemname and @itemlore to edit a result's display name and description with colors
    • @potionitem and @fireworkitem to design your custom potions and fireworks
    • @getrecipebook to get a RecipeBook as result, ones generated by this plugin with recipes in them
    • And a lot more, see 'recipe flags.html' for all of them including documentation.
  • Flexible recipe files to add your recipes in:
    • You can use any kind of spacing and letter casing you want in recipe files, also supports comments
    • Design your file names and folder structure as you want in the 'recipes' folder
  • Auto-generated recipe books with high customization:
    • Pick which recipes to be added and to what volume
    • Re-arrange them as you like
    • Books that players have are automatically updated when edited by admin and reloaded
    • For more information see 'recipe books.yml' file.
  • Other features:
    • Local documentation files for ease, the .html files that will be generated the first time you run the plugin
    • Customizable settings, messages and item/data/enchant aliases in their respective YML files
    • Supports Vault for economy and permission groups
    • API for plugin developers, custom events and utility methods for most features
    • MCStats / Metrics:

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)

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.

    Hello, my uncraftable recipes suddenly decided to quit workin, and let people craft them. When i was on 1.1, they worked, but now on 1.2, they dont. It still says there is uncraftable recipes when you get to a crafting table, but it still lets you craft them. I have the latest build of recipe manager and spoutplugin. thanks

    Hi, Is there any plan for the next release to have map:id supported? Would be a real plus.

    I hope this will be released soon.

    CookBook seems to be dead, and I really would like to add recipes for 'brick circle blocks' (creative only for now), chainmail armor, and perhaps add a TnT+charcoal=diamond recipe.

    @Sonorpearl: Go

    Yeah I know that one... it's a weird one.

    Can you trigger that error at will ? Because I want to replicate the error and test out some alternatives.

    Post a ticket or PM me with the reply please.
