MineralManager Action Shot

Mineral Manager

This plugin is designed to allow server administrators to have tighter control over their server's economy as well as introduce new and interesting experiences for their players. MineralManager is the second generation of the MineralVein plugin; with improved performance, customization, control, and reliability it makes a big jump forward from the original concept.

This plugin works by allowing specified blocks to regenerate after they've been broken. From Cactus to Diamond, from Dirt to Logs, admins can control which blocks are allowed to respawn, where they're allowed to respawn, and what should take their place when they're broken. This plugin also allows for a bit of randomness in its regeneration by using a degradation parameter that causes blocks to sometimes forgo respawning when they're broken.

Mineral Manager Action Shot

You can do anything from creating public mines near spawn filled with iron and coal that never breaks so new players get started quicker to having secret forests that regenerate completely after enough time as passed. Diamonds would become something for your players to guard and protect rather than something to find, mine and move on. An innocent patch of grass could even have gold ore hidden inside. The possibilities are endless and the excitement is contagious! Make your server unique and fun with this easy, yet intricate plugin.

    Awesome plugin, getting things working well in 1.9 after doing a bit of tinkering and reading up on how everything works in the settings.

    One problem i'm having is getting leaves to re-spawn, i have flowers, grass, and lillypads working fine, but when it comes to leaves and vines.. vines are not registering at all, and it will only register the first leaf block broken, if at all.

    it seems to be an issue with timing, as if i wait awhile between breaking leaves it will register another single block.

    1.7.9 BETA CB don`t work can you fix an Update?

    @iSleepzZz: Go

    This is likely because the default setting of "MineOriginalOnly" is "True" which means MineralManager will only respawn blocks that occur naturally in the world. If you'd like to place a "natural" block type /mm creative to enter MineralManager creative mode were you can add natural blocks and destroy blocks without causing them to respawn.

    @Jo11yWombat: Go

    You should be able to use /mineralmanager to access the MineralManager commands. If there is another problem with the plugin conflicting with MobManager I am not aware and any details would be helpful!

    @AGiantPie: Go

    This is usually caused by a problem with your config.yml file. Make sure you have no "tab" characters and only spaces. Also make sure there are no spaces in your configuration / region names.

    @Pidjey: Go

    This is a feature that has been requested a couple of times, and while we don't have much time to update the plugin "hopefully" this will be implemented some day but I can't make any guarantees.

    @WizardCM: Go

    This is a great find! We will have to look at that and make sure its reading and storing all names in their original case. Thanks!

    @confuz3d: Go

    To completely remove messages when you mine / prospect a block. Set the OnBlockBreak and OnBlockProspect field under displayMessages in the config.yml file to "false".

    If you're having trouble with the plugin loading your region as "DEFAULT" on launch, lowercase all of your configurations. Hilariously, the plugin stores the regions correctly categorised, but only when when saving. In memory it lowercases it. This means it thinks they're different, and doesn't find a match when recreating them.

    Could you configure to be random the block regenerated (with a percentage of each material)

  • Avatar of AGiantPie AGiantPie Apr 04, 2014 at 18:57 UTC - 0 likes

    Everything works fine until I type "Yes" to create a region. When I do that, it kicks me and gives me this error.

    Internal Exception: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The validated object is null
