With this plugin, you can "plant" ores down as plants, so that they grow into more ores. Has configurable planting prices, maximum grow heights, grow th delays etc.
Sneak+Rightclick with the item you want to plant (e.g. iron ingot) to create an ore plant (visually a normal ore block). to harvest the whole plant, destroy the ore block, to only harvest the regrowing parts harvest the first block above the base block (like with sugar cane). These blocks will regrow.
The config is mostly self-explainatory, the grow-times are given in minutes in the float format (like in the example config). The perPlayer option specifiys whether only the planter (true) or everyone (false) can harvest ore plants. The prices specify the amount of the resource a player needs to plant a base plant block (e.g. 4 iron ingots for 1 plant). The disabledOres option is a list of disabled ores that will be completely ignored by the plugin.
There are currently none.
growableores.plant: Allows the player to plant an ore plant.
growableores.harvest: Allows the player to harvest an ore plant.
growableores.harvestall: Allows the player to harvest all plants, even if hes not the owner.

Hi I am having a problem with planting. It will let me plant things like Diamond and Coal fine but once I go to plant Iron Ingots or Gold Ingots it will not let me. If any one can help it would be a huge help for me.
I was thinking about a plugin just like this, but with seeds that drop from harvesting regular ore and how good it'd be on my server.
Shame that this isn't active :(
any update on this plugin?
it doesnt plant it. i have enough selected in my hotbar, its farmland, but it just doesnt work.
Hello, I read your comment on the growable ores and I know how to fix it. Ok, so what you do is erase the part under disableores and add in one line that says: - none
Once you do that it should look like:
disableOres: - none
There you go, and I hope I solved your problem.
how can i make the no ops be able to plant ?
Could someone explain how to get rid of the disable ores in the config? I delete it then reload it; Iron and Gold still disabled I would like to enable them, but every time I reload the server or just the mod it gets disabled again. If anyone know how to fix this thanks.
plz help its not working does it need anything like spout or did i install it wrong this is what i did was put the jar file in and restart the server can i have help
Hi, I installed your mod and Im having an issue with planted and Grown Ore. Its not giving me the ore but the block itself. Any idea how to fix this?
Edit: Ok so i figured out that if you plant Diamonds or Coal the first time you break it it give you a block, if your replant(?) the block you can mine it for the material. I havent tried this with emerald or redstone/lupis yet but im sure it works the same.
Hi. I've installed the plugin, and Permissions appear to be setup correctly, but when I sneak-rightclick with an ore, it appear on the ground, and then immediately disappears and returns to my inventory. And ideas?
EDIT: ok, so I figured that out - I had just converted from minecraft to craftbukkit, and the file permissions were wrong. Now it still doesn't seem to work though. I sneak+rightclick and place the ore, but it doesn't grow ever. I have tried changing the grow time to help in debugging, but even setting it to 0.5f (and restarting the server), nothing seems to grow.
Submitting a ticket however also posting here.
I enjoy the mod, and have it on a small server I run. It would be nice however to be able to limit the number of grow able ores each player can have.
Specifically we use emeralds for our economy system, and a player as it stands can have an unlimited number of emerald's growing. Even if I limit each emerald to 1 tall, nothing stops a player from having 20 or more growing, other than removing the ability all together.
If I could limit the number of X ore each player is allowed to grow, I could limit each player to 1 emerald a day etc and not upset the balance of things, and allow players to build and such without digging out huge sections of the world.
Just my 2 cents, great plugin though
and people cant get on my srver can someone try my ip is 184.108.40.206
for some reason this plugin isnt working for me all i did was put the jar file in and restart the server can i have help
for nr 1: i just tested that and you are right. im looking into that to fix it. edit: fixed. those dang typos.
for nr 2: i was considering that during development, but decided against it as it seems a bit weird growing stones on tilled soil.
Hi there If a little problem Each time i´ve put the mineral to grow it. I let it grow Then when its done i remove it but it continues to grow ALso if i dont have a mineral below.
i just play a littlebit with your plugin. I have two little things: first, i can plant ores even if they are disabled in the config file. second, is it possible to make the ores like real plants, so that you need water and that they can only placed on prepared dirt? Because at the moment i can plant them everywhere and they are growing. Thats all. Cheers Cyripton
i was thinking about a similar feature, making the plants only grow when the chunk is loaded (which is while a player is in that region). that will probably be implemented in the next version.
May I recommend you add the ability to stop growth when the player who planted the ore is offline?
Ok its all working now. thank you very much for your help.
that explains a lot. you should be using java 7 (you only have java 6 installed, java 7 got the official build a few weeks ago). ill be recompiling with java 6 anyways for those who dont want to update.
edit: done. youll find the java 6 compatible version on the bit.ly link above or you wait about 10 years till bukkit approves the file :P
