This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of Minecraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.


AnvilControl blocks stacks that are stacked over the standard stack size created by using stack plugins or the give command. Additionally it offers some features to block the placing, using or breaking of anvils and the ability to disable the transferring of enchantments to other tools/weapons/armor or to cap the transferred enchantments to an strength.


To use this features the player needs the appropriate permission (refer to "2.3. Permissions").

Add Lore to an item

In order to add a line of text as lore to an item simply write "@loreadd text" in the name field. If you wan't too add another line just repeat it.

Clear Lore of an item

If you wan't to clear it's lore just use "@loreclear" in the name field


On the first run of this Plugin it will create the AnvilControl directory containing an config.cfg


Set the language field field in the config.cfg to your preferred language possible are

  • Version 1.1.0 and above
    • 'de_DE' for german
    • 'en_US' for english
    • 'ko_KR' for Korean (thanks to ZwingGX for the translation)
    • 'fr_FR' for French (thanks to llebo for the translation)
    • 'pt_PT' for Portuguese (thanks to llebo for the translation)
  • Version 1.0.2 and lower
    • 'de' for german
    • 'en' for english
    • 'kr' for Korean (thanks to ZwingGX for the translation)

If you want to add additional languages just copy a file in the AnvilControl/lang/ directory translate the content and rename it. If you want that minecraft uses the localized enchantment names use as file name the same as it uses in the lang directory inside of the craftbukkit.jar.

I'd add additional languages if some one could translate one of the files and post its content in a ticket.

If you find some spelling mistakes feel free to leave a comment or create a ticket.
