This plugin is designed to allow server administrators to have tighter control over their server's economy as well as introduce new and interesting experiences for their players. MineralManager is the second generation of the MineralVein plugin; with improved performance, customization, control, and reliability it makes a big jump forward from the original concept.
This plugin works by allowing specified blocks to regenerate after they've been broken. From Cactus to Diamond, from Dirt to Logs, admins can control which blocks are allowed to respawn, where they're allowed to respawn, and what should take their place when they're broken. This plugin also allows for a bit of randomness in its regeneration by using a degradation parameter that causes blocks to sometimes forgo respawning when they're broken.
You can do anything from creating public mines near spawn filled with iron and coal that never breaks so new players get started quicker to having secret forests that regenerate completely after enough time as passed. Diamonds would become something for your players to guard and protect rather than something to find, mine and move on. An innocent patch of grass could even have gold ore hidden inside. The possibilities are endless and the excitement is contagious! Make your server unique and fun with this easy, yet intricate plugin.

- [January 2, 2013] MineralManager is looking for another developer to take over maintenance and updating of the plugin! If you're an experienced Java programmer with at least 2 years of experience and at least 1 moderately successful bukkit plugin please contact me via PM if you're interested in working on the MineralManager plugin. You must also be familiar with VCS's like GitHub since we have the project hosted there. Thank you all for your support and I hope with another developer working on the project you will see more consistent updates.

This project is on haitus right now as I'm extremely busy with work and family. I apologize for the slow update and the lack of information and transparency with the project. Hopefully as time goes on I'll be able to continue development and get back to updating and maintaining the plugin! If you are interested in picking up the project as a developer please send me a personal message and we can discuss the particulars. Thanks for all your support and I hope to get back to this project as time allows!
