Who is Herobrine?

Herobrine is a legend of a lost miner who is supposed to exist in Minecraft, although he doesn't and was just some rumor made up. However, he is said to haunt the player and the game, the other Herobrine plugins acted although we was a mugger, disobeying the legends. But this plugin aims to set things straight and bring back the legend that is Herobrine.

For more information, check out this article: http://minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Herobrine
Donators (who I cannot thank enough): Deanfvjr and cadester177

What can I do?

You can configure just about everything, what he says, what he can do, who he is, and more. This includes Herobrine's name, messages, and abilities.

  • The Github for Herobrine can be found at https://github.com/nkrecklow/Herobrine.
  • For the list of commands, type: "/hb" (alias: "/hbu") (requires OP or "herobrine.commands").
  • Ignore players with the permission "herobrine.ignore".

What can he do?

Following the legends, Herobrine is able to do many things, growing with each update.

  • Randomly place signs with creepy messages.
  • Randomly place torches around players.
  • Play sounds of footsteps and creepy noises.
  • Steal from chests and inventories.
  • Targets alone players, and is more active at night.
  • The ability to create and build pyramids.
  • The ability to create and build TNT traps.
  • "Possession" where the player looses all control.
  • Spawn a random amount of bats when he spawns.
  • Ability to enable and disable everything he does.
  • Destroy torches near players.
  • Spawn random (and angry) wolves near players.
  • Create rings of fire.
  • Create graves.
  • Rearrange chests or inventories.
  • Give players books with custom messages.
  • Cause random explosions or lightning.
  • Launch the player into the air.
  • Put your head on a pike.
  • Randomly spin and rotate the player.
  • Destroy chests and drop their contents.
  • Randomly set the player on fire.
  • Creates nether infections, where hell meets Earth.
  • Can decay nearby flowers, turning them into mushrooms.
  • Randomly generates "hotspots", where actions are more likely to occur.
  • And more, I'm always expanding the plugin!

Did somebody say custom mobs/items?

There are three mobs currently, you can check them out on the images page:

  • Unknown Demon drops a Blood Gem.
  • Fallen Angel drops a Greed Gem.
  • Hell's Guardian drops a Midnight Gem.
  • Religious Follower drops a Satanic Book.
  • Together the three gems can be combined to create Herobrine's Sword.
    A = Blood Gem, B = Midnight Gem, C = Greed Gem
    A B A
    B C B
    A B A

Can I use an API?

There is a built-in API. It allows developers to register their own actions and commands. Simply import the latest version of Herobrine as a library, and code away.

Plugin plugin = getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin("Herobrine");
if (plugin != null) {

Example action: Here

    Having an issue.  The plugin installed and shows up in /plugins, but whenever I type in a command it just says "Please use /hb help!"  When that is exactly what I type in.  I had this exact issue with a previous herobrine plugin, but I'm not sure what to make of it.

    @Endergirl2900: Go I had the same problem. However, as I was tailing my log, the plugin failed to enable because of an enum error for BREATH. I went into the config file and removed BREATH under sounds, re-start the server, and bingo.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey Steak

    I got a 1.7.9 server and it seems that this plug doesn't work on it.
    it recognizes the plugin, although the /hb /hbu or /hb-ai commands don't work..

    any suggestions?

    Does this work with 1.7.9? I have a plugin running for 1.3 so I was wondering if this was similar.
