What is Custom Items?

With custom items you can create items with custom names , recipe, abilities , lores, enchantments and name colors. For example, sword with high damage , instant kills or both. There are many abilities that you can attach on your item. Create a bow with teleport or with explosion on hit. You can combine everything and create very good item. Every item has its permission, permission is optional. You can use this on many things, vip, as reward etc.

Create new item

Every item has 11 values: Name,ID,UseRecipe,UseCustom,UsePermission,DisplayName,Lore,Color,Abilities,Enchantments and EnchantmentsLevel.

  • We must register new item to items.yml
- NewItem
  • Now we add whole item with informations about it
    ID: 276 // 276 is diamond sword
    DisplayName: "New Item"
    UsePermission: false //if permissions are needed to use item
    Abilities: // item abilities
    - Poison
    - Lighting
    - Death
    - This is lore
    - This is another lore
    Color: "§6"
    UseRecipe: false
    UseCustom: true
      KNOCKBACK: 2
  • ID - Minecraft item id.
  • DisplayName - Displays name of item.
  • UsePermission - If permission is required to use item.
  • Abilities - List of item´s abilities.
  • Lore - Item´s lore. (Under item´s name)
  • Color - DisplayName color. (List of colors here)
  • UseRecipe - Item can be created by recipe.
  • UseCustom - Every item has in lore one line of item´s name, this will remove that line if its set to false, but plugin then wont know that is custom item, so abilities wont work.
  • Enchantments - List of item´s enchantments. (List of all enchantments here)
  • EnchantmentsLevel - List of item´s enchantments level.
  • Note: Color codes are here link.
  • Restart server or use /ci reload
  • Item is now completed! You can add it in game by /ci create NewItem yourname


Custom recipes

  • To use custom recipe you must set UseRecipe on item to true
  • Then you must write recipe into recipes.yml


Write every slot in this format : 'slot number': material id.


    '1': 0
    '2': 0
    '3': 0
    '4': 1
    '5': 1
    '6': 1
    '7': 0
    '8': 0
    '9': 0
  • And this is how it looks like.




  • Lighting - Strikes lighting from the sky.
  • SuperFortune - This is like enchant fortune but 3x more powerfull.
  • Death - Instantly kills the target.
  • SuperHit - Hit is 3x bigger.
  • Break - Breaks any block instantly. (except Bedrock)
  • Teleport - Teleports to clicked location. (With bow, this location is where arrow fell on ground)
  • Poison - Poisons the target.

  • Explosion - Creates explosion when you click or hit something.
  • LifeSteal - Converts damage to life.
  • Blind - Blinds the target.

Every item can have permission, if you want it to have one, then set UsePermission on item to true. Permission will be custom-items.ItemName

    So everybody knows, I just launched a forum where you can ask questions about Custom Items. I would prefer that you use it from now on to ask questions. As a reward to those who do, questions asked via the forum will be given the highest priority of all the questions I receive.

    The forum can be accessed at one of the two following URLs:

    @frankhribal: Go

    When creating a new custom item in "items.yml", the ID entry is not intended for what you want the new item's ID to be, but rather what the ID of the item you want to base your custom item off of is.

    Consider this excerpt from the default "items.yml":

        ID: 276
        DisplayName: Sword Example
        UsePermission: false
        - Poison
        - Lightning
        - Death

    Since we want to base this item off of a diamond sword, we will set the ID equal to 276. Because Custom Items only allows you to base your items off of other items, separate IDs are not set for the items. This is an unfortunate limitation of server-side plugins, as it would be necessary for a client side modification to be installed in order to allow for items with new IDs to be added.

    @DavidBBukkit: Go

    I guess you would know how to answer this: Does the new item have an id that I can call later?

    So the default records have the id's 2256-2268, and there are some unused id's after. I put my custom song in assets/minecraft/sounds/custom/ and I can play it using the playsound command. Does that mean that it already has an id that I can call on?
