GlowstoneDrop - Get a glowstone block back!

Version v1.7

Old forum link: Click!


Destroy a glowstone with a pickaxe (or other configured item) and get a block back!
It's a rebirth of GlowstoneDrop from @XxFuNxX
The code is updated & improved and better, but all credit of the idea and the original plugin goes to XxFuNxX!

Comes with a config, permissions & commands!



  • Allows you to destroy a glowstone block and get a block back
  • Config, permissions & commands
  • You will need a pickaxe, just like the "real" block requires; additionally you can customize the allowed items
  • Change the drop for each world
  • This plugin sends usage statistics! If you wish to disable the usage stats, look at /plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml!

Commands & Permissions

Only the bukkit permissions are supported! I highly recommend that you use a plugin for permissions like bPermissions or PermissionsEX (PEX)!!
If the config value permission is set to false, all people can use the plugin!
If no permission system is found, all commands are for OPs only! (as long as permissions is set to true) Of course the console can use the commands, too!
If a command is typed wrong, it will return, that you should type /glowstonedrop help or /glowdrop help for more information!

You can type the long version /glowstonedrop or use the shortcut /glowdrop
