How to Use?

Here's a list of specific permissions nodes for this plugin and what each does.

This plugin helps prevent users from getting a Efficiency 5 Axe and going out to the desert for some fun. Have you ever tried to take an Axe you would normally use to chop down a tree to collect Sand? Didn't work very well did it, so why allow it in Minecraft.

    You can add an option in the settings to translate the message that appears when you use a wrong tool?.

    You can add entities (mobs and players) to have to use "certain" weapons to harm them?.


    zombie: Any sword and arrows, 267,268,272,276,283,262
    'player': Any sword and arrows, 267,268,272,276,283,262
    'skeleton': Arrows, 262

    Just going to suggest now. The ability to translate messages onscreen.

    Thank you for adding this option to the next version ;)

    EDIT: You can add "mobs"?, To force use a weapon to kill them ... (and be able to choose which weapon to use in each).

    Im going to be adding the ability to customize the message more that what it currently has in newer version as well as some more configurable options.

    Great plugin. Previously used "RudeTools" for this work, but gave me problems.

    Am going to use your plugin to see if it works well.

    Greetings ;)
