News 1.27.2013


Unfortunately, I've lost interest in plugin development, and am no longer able to reliably keep plugins up to date with the most recent versions of Bukkit.

However, not all plugin developers are the same. I'm aware of one plugin that is very similar to mine, is updated to 1.4.7, and has even more features. I haven't tried it out, but looking at its description, it looks like exactly what you're looking for as a replacement to NoSpawnEggs:

I'm glad you found my plugin to be useful in previous times, however, as I can no longer be reliable in updating it, using this plugin would most likely be the best choice.

Happy server-ing!


Prevent players on a server from using spawner eggs, chicken eggs, Snow and Iron Golems, dispenser spawns, XP bottles, fire charges, boats, minecarts, Ender Pearls and Eyes, and more!

Do you want to run a Creative server, but hate the idea of any user being able to cause what could become infinite lag with Spawn Eggs, Chicken Eggs and Snow Golems? This plugin fixes this problem. You can choose to only allow people with a certain permission to perform certain actions, and it is fully configurable.

Permissions Nodes

Any modern permissions system is supported!



Config help is now on the GitHub wiki.


GitHub will no longer be used. Source files can be found in the JAR, in /me/goosemonkey/NoSpawnEggs2/.

To Do

I'll implement one of these features if it gets enough support. Feel free to suggest your own!

  • Allow mobs to be spawned once every x seconds
  • Configure whether Ops have all permissions
  • Charging players money (Vault) to use items
  • Using WorldGuard regions
  • Dispenser permissions
  • Give me an idea!

    Can you please update it one last time?

    The most recent source (last updated for 1.2.5 in June 2012) can be found in the plugin JAR. If anyone with plugin development knowledge wishes to, I give them the right to make this into their own plugin, just contact me via PM.

    Otherwise, use CreativeControl.

    Can anyone update this or make a new plugin that does this job?

    You should update this plugin. Or does it work fine on 1.4.2?

    I can't get this plugin to work :-( Help needed.

    I have installed the 2.0.1 full version and are using default configs. When throwing a spawnegg, I get the message e.g. "You don't have permission to spawn this Cave Spider" but the Cave Spider still spawns.

    Any ideas? Could this be a plugin incompatibility issue?

    @Jesse131 Yes, it works for Bats and Witches - It doesn't say their names - Just says "You do not have permission to spawn this entity."
