This project is not abandonned! I just had to no time updating and adding all the feature requests. I will try to make a big update once 1.7 bukkit is out!


cRecipes is a server plugin made for the Catharos Minecraft Server that allows custom recipes. Yes there are a lot of plugins that are allowing you to add various recipes. But why cRecipes then? This time the plugin not only allows you to add recipes, it also adds two main functions: Custom block names and drops.

Github source code

Configuration and How-To


Besides custom recipes (shaped, shapeless and furnace) cRecipes features:

  • Custom block item names
  • Custom block drops
  • Per-Item permissions including customizable error message
  • Color support for both, item names and lords
  • Can overwrite vanilla recipes!


The goal of this plugin is to not have over-complicated configurations and commands. That's why there is only one command: /creload. Use it to reload the configuration files and all custom recipes

To-Do list

  • Enchantments
  • Custom books

Version 1.0.6 - In development (not yet released)!

  • Add extra items that can be given to the player upon successful crafting
  • Added option to keep the original item names (use "set-name: false" in the recipe config)
  • Added the xp and lvl messages
  • IMPORTANT FIX: Custom blocks in protected regions are no longer destroyable!
  • Fixed drop-related bugs
  • Finally fixed and implemented a working updater!

    No problem i gathered as much from your posts below that you are busy.

    I can work around these issues for now, it does pretty much all i need it to for now.

    Enjoy your other plugins! :D

    Thank you for posting all these messages - from developer to developer: it always helps if people notify you about bugs and glitches, doesn't it? :D

    I am working on some other stuff for our server at the moment. When I am ready with it, i will recode cRecipes once again to fix all the bugs (right now the recipes are stored very badly) that the people came up with - This could take me a few weeks though (not the actual coding part, but finishing my other plugins first) :(

    Sorry gonna keep posting these as i find them, seeing as im heavily testing this plugin right now.

    Please dont take this as me being obnoxious im a developer myself and I know I would want to know any problems with my work.

    When shift clicking an item to go into a furnace that uses a crecipes recipe it does not put the item into the furnace slot however it does start the smelting process, you can then take the smelted output from of the furnace and be left with a ghost of the pre smelted item in your inv, clicking this ghost item removes it so its not duping which is good, just a tweak to the shift click handling by the looks of it.

    Ok i figured it out myself, this should probably be added to the help page:

    When using block ids with meta data you need to encapsulate them with apostrophes so:

      a: 27004:1


      a: '27004:1'

    This needs to be done everywhere you use this format (in furnace input and output for an example)

    Great mod but it seems it does not support metadata correctly, i have some custom items from a mod using ID 27004.

    now if i use that id it works, if i however use 27004:1 or 27004:2 it does not and treats the ingredients as air, so:

      a: 27004:1

    with a shape of

    - aaa
    - aaa
    - aaa

    will allow the item to be created with an empty crafting grid. This occurs in all areas of the recipes.yml (so as an ingredient or the output in shaped, shapeless and furnace)

    Also your updater really only needs to check on server startup not every 20 mins as is currently the case.

    The above is all in your latest build from jenkins btw.

    I made an experimental build: Tell me if it works for you. This could brake everything or fix everything :/

    I am busy developing other plugins and I also have some other website jobs in the queue. I will try to look into this asap - the paper arrow stuff is a bug since the very beginning. I need to look into this.
