14 - LikeABoss hooked-in natively

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?
I was wondering if you would be interested in hooking this into likeaboss so that the custom experience control can stay with controlorble, and support more xp for bosses.

So that in the config a new section would be:
likeaboss: true/false (false default)
  Blaze: 20
  CaveSpider: 10
  Creeper: 10
  Enderman: 10
  EnderDragon: 40000
  Ghast: 10
  Giant: 10
  MagmaCube: 10
  PigZombie: 10
  Silverfish: 10
  Skeleton: 10
  Slime: 2
  Spider: 10
  Wolf: 10
  Zombie: 10

(or whatever you want for values... this is just an example)

Please provide any additional information below.

    This will have to wait until the version 3.0 update.

    I'll see what I can do... I have an interesting idea for something like this.

    @feildmaster: Go

    More or less, you have to retrieve the Likeaboss instance, then call "instance".getBossManager().getBoss(LivingEntity), however it may change in the future. getBoss() returns null if the entity provided isn't a boss.

    You'll probably want to check if an entity is a boss after an EntityDeathEvent, but your listener's priority must be higher than "NORMAL" because bosses are also removed on this event.

    There's a custom event if you prefer (cam.event.BossDeathEvent) but I'm not sure if it's convenient enough. The original EntityDeathEvent isn't canceled (of course, since that isn't possible) so you would have to deal with both events, usually it requires more work.

    If you have any question feel free to send me a PM, I could even add a proper API if you think it's needed (like, static methods, maybe?).

    They must have because several other plugins have adapted likeaboss compatibility.

    mobhealth is a good example

    I usually don't make plugins that hook into other plugins... But would you know if they have a simple way of detecting if a monster is a boss?
