Dirt shovel

Dirt shovel


This plugin enables players to prevent grass spreading by just using a shovel, no commands! Ideal for making dirt paths in a traditional way, graves and what other stuff you can think of.


  • Prevent grass spreading on specific blocks
  • No commands, using in-game tools
  • Simple visual&sound effects when using tools
  • No storage, it changes blocks' data value and gets saved inside the world
    • Not permanent, won't work if plugin is removed, so no world damage !
  • Optional no-snow on no-grass spreading blocks support
  • Tools are damaged when used (configurable)
  • Customizable messages
  • Configurable tools that can be used to prevent/restore grass spreading


  1. You need a shovel...
  2. Right-click a dirt or grass block
  3. And done! That block will not turn into grass as long as the plugin is active
  4. You can undo the action by right-clicking the block again


  1. Place the jar file in your plugins folder (http://wiki.bukkit.org/Installing_Plugins)
  2. Start server to generate config and configure (plugins/Dirt shovel/config.yml)
  3. Restart server to apply settings
