SpawnerEdit makes editing your mob spawners easy, no commands required! Simply right-click the spawner to open an inventory window. You'll see a spawn egg in the enchanting slot; replace it with a different spawn egg, and voila! Your spawner will now spawn the mob associated with the new egg.

Currently you need to swap mobs by holding an egg and clicking the one already there; otherwise it won't let you remove the egg.

To edit a parameter of the mob spawner, click the egg while holding a stack of the appropriate material. A larger stack allows you to change the parameter in larger increments. There's no limit to how high you can set the parameters, so be careful.

The permission "spawneredit.edit" determines whether a player can edit spawners. By default everyone has permission. Currently there's no configuration required. The current value of each parameter is displayed on the enchanting buttons in the order spawn limit, max delay, min delay (from top to bottom).

Features summary:

  • Edit mob spawners by right-clicking (permission: spawneredit.edit)
  • Edit minimum delay between spawns by adding glowstone dust (permission: spawneredit.edit.mindelay)
  • Edit maximum delay between spawns by adding emeralds (permission: spawneredit.edit.maxdelay)
  • Edit spawn limit by adding gold nuggets (permission: spawneredit.edit.limit)
  • Permission spawneredit.edit.all covers all three of the above

Possible future features:

  • Edit the delay between spawns
  • Spawners drop eggs when mined (though you can do this already with any drop-editing plugin, such as DropFactory)
  • Temporarily disable spawners entirely by removing the egg
  • Configurable parameter-editing materials
  • Edit spawn count

    I'm having trouble getting this plugin to work with 1.7.9. The plugin loads fine on startup, but when I go to right click a spawner I place with /i 52, it gives me alot of errors. I've tried removing all plugins except this one, but that still doesn't seem to work. There's a link of the error below.

    Note: I'm not willing to try version 0.2 as it doesn't have the requirements I'm looking for.

    I'd really love to use this plugin for my server.

    Thanks in advance.
