Spawner

Creeper Spawner 2

This plugin allows you to set mob spawner types and optionally gather mob spawners with a Silk Touch enchanted tool.

Features

  • 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.
  • Command to remove entities in a given radius with /spawner remove <EntityType> [radius]
  • This plugin will 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.
  • Luck option to give a chance to not drop the spawner and break like normal (disabled by default).
  • Frequency option for each creature type to give a chance to not spawn.
  • Prevents renaming spawners on an anvil.
  • 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.
  • Config option to use creature aliases so you can just use horse instead of EntityHorse.
  • Permissions to disable eggs.
  • Configure drops.

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


Installation

  • Drop the plugin into your plugins folder like any other plugin.
  • Restart the server.
  • If you are updating from an older version you must either delete your language.yml file or update it with the new entries or you will get errors.
  • Make sure to configure it to your liking by editing the config.yml.
  • Type /spawner reload to reload any changes you make to the language.yml or config.yml files.
  • If you want players to be able to break spawners add permission for spawner.break.<entity>
  • If you want players to be able to mine spawners with a silk touch enchanted tool add permission for spawner.mine.<entity>
  • If you want players to be able to place spawners add permission for spawner.place.<entity>
  • <entity> in the above points can be any entity type (all lowercase) or all to indicate all entities. For example spawner.place.all will allow players to place any spawner type.

Tips

  • Edit your config.yml and do /spawner reload to reload the changes.
  • Make sure you aren't looking at a spawner when you're trying to change the spawner you're holding.
  • It can also change an entire stack of spawners you're holding.
  • If you try to update the plugin with a plugin manager without restarting the server you may run into issues (such as duplicate spawner drops).
  • Doesn't work properly in creative mode.
  • The config.yml file has a section for valid_entities where you can list entities you want players to be able to use.


TODO

I created a Spawner 3.0 TODO List here.

If they are crossed out it means they are finished or being worked on and may be in the next release.

  • Add ability to limit the number of spawners a player can give/change.
  • Add baby spawners.
  • Implement NBT features for MobSpawner from here for mob armor, etc.
  • Compatibility with Vault so that you can make it cost money to get/change a spawner.


Metrics

This plugin collects anonymous statistics about your server so that I can better understand how people are using the plugin.

It sends these stats to MCStats.org where it's publicly available. These statistics include your Java version, operating system, authentication mode, system architecture, number of system cores, server location, game version, server software, and which version of this plugin you are using.

If you would like to opt out of this anonymous statistics collection process then you can disable it by editing the file /plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.

    Sorry, I've tried but I can't reproduce your issue even using PEX. Perhaps you have your permissions mixed up. If you send me your spawner and PEX plugin folders I can test more.

    Also if you aren't using PEX file backend could you kindly export your permissions to file and send that it would be great.

    @ryvix: Go

    Yes, the error is very much apparent.

    Have you tested on a test server without any other plugins besides spawner and PEX to see if you still have the issue?

    Also, the latest version is broken, I'm going back down to 1.9b, versions from there-on don't work with Spigot 1.8.8

    Even with -spawner.* they can still use the egg feature, please, please please, just publish a version with the egg feature disabled I will even pay bro, I desperately need this. :l

    Well there are permission nodes on it. And like I say, it works for me. I haven't tested with PEX yet but will try to remember to before the next release and make sure it works. Have you tested on a test server without any other plugins besides spawner and PEX to see if you still have the issue?

    Currently with this plugin I am working on fixing a bug with the language and/or data id values not translating properly and then once I figure that out I hopefully will be able to test some new features I've added along with PEX and the spawn egg issue and hopefully in the next week or maybe 2 weeks I will have a new release out.

    @ryvix: Go

    Actually, if you can't fix it with permission nodes, add a feature in the config to disable it for the time being! This is urgent, thank you bro.

    @ryvix: Go

    Spawner 2.3-5494d1d, PEX 123.3

    This is a really nasty error since it's default to everyone.

    @YepImRobbie: Go

    Which versions of everything and which permission plugin are you using?

    People have reported this before but I haven't been able to reproduce this yet with the plugins I've tried.

    HUGE PROBLEM:

    spawner.eggs.<entity> Allows using eggs on spawners to change their entity type. Use spawner.eggs.all to allow all entity types. Default: op

    Is NOT default to OP, EVERYONE can use this feature!

    Make it so people cannot use this!!!
