Nbt edit is a plugin designed to allow you to edit the NBT data in minecraft via commands. The best way to describe what it does would be to show some examples, Assuming the player had the required permissions the player could use commands such as:

/nbt set spaced name here

while holding an item to rename it. or the player could do:

/nbt add lore spaced lore line here

while holding an item too add a line of lore to it. The plugin also allows for fireworks editing, for example: if the player was to do the command below while holding a firework:

/fw set power 2

it would set the flight duration of the firework to 2, note it will not let you set above three as unmodified clients will crash with power values above 3

For more detailed examples and command usage make sure to visit the wiki, also as there are only two permission nodes for convenience they are listed below:

  • NBTEdit.nbt for using the /nbt command
  • NBTEdit.fireworks for using the /fw command

Features Include

  • Editing enchantments
  • Editing item lore
  • Editing fireworks - Supports Colors, primary effects, secondary effects and power
  • Item names
  • Bukkit API only (Won't break instantly on every update)
  • Editing Lore Colors
  • Editing Name Colors
  • Editing Durability
  • Editing Books
  • Editing Player heads
  • Change color of leather armor
  • Map editing

Soon to come

  • Mob Spawner editing
  • Possibly potion editing, but probably not to the extent expected

Visit the Wiki

The wiki has all information necessary to operate the plugin to it's full extent

It is truly appreciated the money that has been donated (And any future donations!), it certainly helps motivate me to go that extra step that's for sure! The more donations I get the more time I can spend writing plugins :)

    @SacredTomes: Go

    Never mind, I found out how to change text colour.

    Also, when you type in an invalid colour, is says:

    "That color doe not exist!"

    Small typo there, I think it means to say "Does".

    Hey, just a quick question, is the Unbreakable NBT tag usable in this plugin? If not, may I request you add it, because I like this plugin, but that tag is quite useful, and I can't seem to use it right now.

    Also, how do you change the name/lore colours? The way shown in the wiki doesn't work.

    Warning this plugin does with work 1.7.2 BUT will cause massive chunk errors.

    Use at own risk!

    Why you made the slime size to be a positive number? Silme with negative size is one ofe the most usefull things in minecraft.

    I thought that NBTEdit means editing NBT tags, can you add feature to edit real NBT tags?

    If you ever manage to get a gui for this mode (not even one as good as the in-game mod, just a gui to make things easier) You'll be the best plugin maker I ever saw here. ^^

    Guys the plugin developer hasn't been active since April 19th. So dont expect him to update the plugin or add new features.
