Nether Tools


Nether Tools was a plugin developed for a server I'm an admin on. What the plugin does is its just custom crafting recipes to allow players to craft tools and weapons from netherrack, glowstone, quartz and nether stars. They are the same crafting procedures at normal tools but replace the stone with netherrack and the sticks with bones. The tools (axe, pickaxe, shovel and hoe) have Durability I and Efficiency I while the sword has Durability I and Sharpness I.

Newest Update

The newest update includes update notifications so if a new version has been released then you will be notified when you start you Bukkit server. This version was also the beginning to the configuration update so each tools enchantments are configurable. For configuration details please go to the Configuration page. In version 2.7.5 we added an Item Menu to receive items so you dont have to type commands (commands still work). The menu can be accessed with "/nt gui"


/nt (toolname)Give Nether Tool to player
/nt listLists All Nether Tools
/nt versionDisplays version of Nether Tools Plugin
/nt guiOpen Item Menu


nethertools.nt.givePermission for the /nt command*Allows crafting of all tools*Allows crafting of all netherrack tools*Allows crafting of all glowstone tools*Allows crafting of all quartz tools*Allows crafting of all nether star tools

Permissions also available for each tool ( example: )

    There seems to be a problem with getting the Night Vision with the glowstone tools.

    It doesn't always activate and then when I switch between a glowstone tool and something else, then back it won't activate again.

    @Nosfeato: Go

    1. That's good to hear
    2. Send me a private message
    3. Enchantments can still be added on top of them and the only reason for enchantments is so player will have a reason to make these tools instead of just crafting normal stone, gold, iron and diamond tools
    4. The newest updates have been tested in 1.5.2 and work correctly

    Could you also update the 1.5.2 version of Nether Tools (if it's not too much to ask ") cause all my players are saying how awsome this plugin is and how much they want it XD and for now the 1.5.2 doesn't work with netherstar tools and all which is a shame :'(

    HEY Im back from vacations Geekxboy !!! I have VERY important stuff to tell you:

    1- Im learning java language cause i want to make plugins and help you make them

    2- For the idea of Class plugin : I havn't found the source code HOWEVER if you want i can give you a detailed info on how it works and the classes you can make which shouldn't be too hard to make I think compared to this nether tools plugins

    3- For the nether tools i recommand NOT showing the enchantments and letting players ADD enchantments on top of the tools that way players will only know its a nether tool item from the NAME of the nether object. It will look more realistic and look like you really created a new weapon in minecraft (just like a mod really ) exept you won't have done that and , as you know , all you will have done was hide the fact you enchanted the items and change de name to make it SEEM like a new tool. I hope i was clear enough "

    @WmPowell: Go

    That would be correct and add a name and lore to it

    Thank you for the response. Am I right in assuming then that the Nether Star Sword for instance is more or less a specifically enchanted Diamond sword? If so I will have to duplicate as close as possible in the mobmanager configs. Very cool plugin please keep up the great work.

    It is impossible to add separate ID's without adding a new item/block to the game which requires spout, which nethertools does not support.

    Great plugin. My kids and I love it on our server. I was curious though if the tools had any specific item ID. I run MobManager and would like to give some of my uber mobs a Nether weapon of some sort. If you could provide on the swords at least the ID and DV numbers that wouold be helpful. Thanks. Again love the plugin.
