What does it do?

  • If a player throws a normal chicken egg in Creative mode, it will not hatch unless the player is an op
  • If a player uses a spawner egg it will not hatch

This plugin: EntityManager (formerly AntiSpawnEgg) has the same features and many more. If you just want a light basic plugin you can go for StopEggs but for stuff like xp bottles, fireballs, furnace use of spawner eggs and more check out imilkywayz' plugin! :)

Why would you want this?

I originally made this for my own server SuCraft to stop the continuous spawning of chickens, and in later versions, all sorts of mobs. Worlds were lagging really hard. So if you want to prevent this too, this is a plugin you can use!


Just drag the StopEggs.jar into your /plugins folder. It's that easy!




None, the permissions to throw a chicken egg is handled via the OP status.

Future possibilities

  • Implement some permissions
  • Make a config
  • Add a distinction between different types of spawner eggs

Dev builds

This plugin uses MCStats to collect information about plugin usage. Of course, this is strictly anonymous, and you can easily opt out via plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml. The NSA isn't watching your server ;) You can of course see for yourself what data is collected on the MCStats site, just the basic stuff: how many servers, how many players, which Bukkit version, etc.

    @Hvarr: Go

    I will soon.

    @Hollowbrown: Go

    I'll try to keep this up-to-date, but I don't have much time due to financial constraints.

    Please keep it up to date, a simple plugin like this with no "extras" is just what my large server needs!

    can you please add a possibility to turn off annoying spam in console?

    17:19:38 [INFO] [StopEggs] Someone tried to use a spawner egg, but it was prevented. 17:19:38 [INFO] [StopEggs] Someone tried to use a spawner egg, but it was prevented. 17:19:38 [INFO] [StopEggs] Someone tried to use a spawner egg, but it was prevented.

    I mean, come on.. it repeats hundreds of times a second.

    @dramatech: Go

    I can't make permission for spawner egg types, sorry. I could make permissions like stopeggs.chickeneggs and stopeggs.spawnereggs if you wanted ;)

    But I basically stopped development on this as you can see below I was quickly discouraged haha.

    I would download this but all the older ones suck. If you add permissions for all the eggs and such you have my download and my promotion to other server owners. :D

    @imilkywayz: Go

    I didn't know! I'm not planning on competing with you, but if you don't have time sometime I'll gladly help you on anything. That should also result in a better plugin for the community eh ;)

    Not to discourage you but there is already 2 plugins just like this. My plugin (antispawnegg) and some other guys (nospawneggs) and both of our plugins are more advanced. I don't want to come off as rude or a dick, but you should add some unique features so you can compete since it results in a better plugin for the community :)
