  • You can change the type of spawner you are looking at or holding by using /spawner <EntityType>. For example /spawner creeper will change the spawner to a creeper spawner.
  • It will tell you what kind of spawner you interact with or type /spawner while looking at it.
  • Command to give yourself or another player a spawner of a given type.
  • /spawner list and /spawner help commands that display the contents of text files so you can customize them to your liking.
  • This plugin may be able to replace other plugins that store mob spawner types as the item durability. It will also attempt to remove the Silk Touch enchant from the spawner that some plugins add otherwise players can use them as a Silk Touch enchanted tool.
  • Config option to prevent players from making spawners of bad entities.
  • Config option to prevent explosions from destroying spawners.
  • Config file to change the language.

This plugin may use various bits of code I found on the Bukkit forums.



You can make spawners any of the entity names listed here. Generally you would use the name that appears inside the quotes in the brackets. For example PigZombie will work while PIG_ZOMBIE will not.

The config.yml file has a section for bad_entities where you can list entities you don't want players to be able to use.


/spawner <entity>
Switch the spawner you're looking at or holding to the given mob entity type.

/spawner give <entity> [player]

/spawner list

    There isn't currently a permission node to place spawners. I could add one but if you dont give them permission to mine them then they can't mine them in the first place. So the solution should be to not give them spawners if you don't want them to use them. However I know there are certain plugins which give permissions to a selected area so it might be useful to have a place permission.

    The names are set in the code using the entity types and there isn't a way to customize them. I could look into adding this into the language file though.

    How can I change the spawner name?

    Instead of lets say Zombie Spawner I want to make it yellow

    That happens if they are in creative mode.

    Sometimes when people buy spawners from a spawner shop I made, the spawners in their inventory random just glitch out and get deleted. It's annoying.

    Sorry, I just realized that I completely misread your message before. Wither skeletons should show up if you put skeleton spawners in the nether.

    @Appleguy1999: Go

    I believe so. I think it was WitherBoss

    Check the Entities section above for more info.

    Is there anyway to spawn Wither Skeletons with the plugin?

What do you want added next?
