CraftBook is a heavily customizable plugin that adds a number of new mechanics to Minecraft with no client mods required. As one of Minecraft's oldest mods/plugins, we were the first to bring you Minecraft computers, Redstone ICs, moving bridges, and more! Here's a short list:

  • Modular, and extremely light on your server.
  • Enable features that you need, disable ones that you don't. Even tweak features to your liking.
  • Adds heaps of mechanics that allow you to mimic large portions of FTB/Tekkit with a vanilla client.
  • Redstone ICs (Logic gates, Sensors, Many others)
  • Elevators for your server so people can jump between floors quickly. (Or smoothly, if you choose so)
  • Working cauldrons so players can cook inside them.
  • Your own custom crafting recipes.
  • Hidden switches for players.
  • Togglable areas and bridges.
  • Chairs you can sit on.
  • Working pipes that can transfer items from place to place.
  • Footprints where your players walk.
  • Mobs and players drop their heads.
  • The ability to bind commands to items, with cool-downs, permissions and timers.
  • And much more... (Seriously, check the wiki)

The CraftBook wiki is currently being revamped! Progress can be viewed here! If you find any issues with the wiki (Especially in pages marked 100% of missing), please report them here.

Getting Started


Bukkit is currently required.

  1. Install WorldEdit first. (DON'T FORGET THIS)
  2. Install any other plugins required for specific features you want.
  3. Download CraftBook and copy the .jar into plugins/.
  4. Run your server once to generate the files.
  5. Edit plugins/CraftBook/config.yml to your liking, and enable anything you want to use.
    Note: For optimal performance, only enable what you need. If you are running a version prior to 3.8.1, check the config to see if any features are enabled that you don't want.
  6. Restart the server for the settings to take effect.

You'll have to read the wiki (see below) to find the permissions you need.

    It's probably best to put them on the Issue Tracker, that way they don't get lost in the comments BFAK:Me4502,29161,4f0de51cb88cee87b6bde141dc91aad088e966ece17f83fc6225cb872dcbc2c8 Donate Moving from FalseBook to CraftBook?|My website!|Quality server hosting!

    Me4502 I'm gonna transfer my comments about the plugin so also feature request or glitch report to spigot because it's easier for me. If that's a problem and you don't get any comment there just tell it me so that I'll continue saying those things here.

    If there's legitimately an issue, it'd be very useful for me to have that information so that I can fix it for others. You're the only person who has said they have this issue, hence why I am asking for the information.

    This is to much of a hassle. This plugin is not that important to have.

    @DraVarg: Go

    Please type /cb report, and upload the file it gives you to pastebin. Could you also please screenshot what you're trying to do ingame. Could you also please pastebin the server log for the session that this was done in?

    @DraVarg: Go

    CraftBook works perfectly on 1.10, what issues are you experiencing?

    @Vert3xITA: Go

    That would still need to iterate over every entity that exists in the world.

    I'll look into the rest when I get a chance.

What is the hardest or most confusing feature of CraftBook to use or setup with help from the wiki? (Please explain reasoning in comments)
