Chairs - Sit down on stairs

Source Code

The Chairs plugin makes it possible to use stair-blocks as seats so that you are able to sit down on them. It is similar to the ChairCraft plugin. This one works properly, though.

Note: It appears that you will see yourself as sitting a bit higher than you are supposed to, other players will see you sitting normal, though (screenshot).

How To:

Thanks to the guys from WoopaGaming who did a showcase of this plugin:

To sit down on a chair, you simply have to rightclick on the stairs-block.

  • If you have the "sneaking"-option in the config.yml enabled, you have to sneak while rightclicking.
  • If you have set the "distance"-option to a value higher than 0, you have to be close enough to the chair to be able to sit down.
  • If you have the "sign-check"-option enabled, there have to be signs at the end of the chair/row of chairs to be able to sit down.
  • If you have set the "max-chair-width"-option to a value higher than 0, the chair/row of chairs must not be longer than this value.

To stand up from a chair, you have to rightclick on it. You can also destroy the chair to stand up.

The config.yml contains an explanation to all the options you can set, please read it before asking questions.

Note: The "item"-option in the config.yml if the type of item you are sitting on. Players can only "sit" on entities (like minecarts or mobs. Item drops are entities, too). This plugin uses item drops on which the player sits down. You can configure the type of item drop, because it is possible that you will sometimes see it floating through the player's body. A lever is quite small, that's why it is the default value

    Use ChairsReloaded instead. It´s updated and working fine with 1.9.

    Because if you only want the chairs part and because the chairs in Chairs reloaded is usable inside regions if it's setup to allow people access to using things, but not build, while craftbooks chairs still give you "you have no rights" message in the region.

    Why get chairs reloaded when you can get CraftBook? CraftBook contains the exact features of chairs reloaded (correct sitting position, health regen). But it also has heaps more neat features. (It has also been around longer...)
