This project will be inactive and won't work for 1.8 servers until I finished the recoding.

Development Builds

Quote from the developer chengzi368:

Development builds of this project can be acquired at the provided continuous integration server. These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk!


A simple plugin that allows you to open crates. Unlike SurpriseEggs, it allows you to use keys to open crates. Also, it allows players to uncrate in their own inventory without any command, and gives players only one item per crate, like TF2 and CS:GO.


English(up to date):



Portuguese(for v1.1.3 and older):


(Thank shahiem99 Theekshana and AbsintoJ for making those videos!)


Ready to uncrate Get the reward The broadcast message The information of my reward (Move your mouse on the name of reward in broadcasts)

How to use

Open your inventory or workbench, then put your crates and keys into the crafting zone, and click the dirt on the result slot... It will turn to your reward instantly!


  • /lc give <crate/key> <type> [amount] [player]
  • /lc reload

Aliases: /lootcrates or /crates


  • LootCrates.give
  • LootCrates.reload


  • Need documenters!


This plugin contains an auto-updater to check updates and notify you in order to make sure you are using the newest, not buggy version. However if you want to disable this feature for some reasons, you can set checkUpdate to false in plugins/LootCrates/config.yml.


This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to mcstats.org:

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

Opting out of this service for this plugin can be done by editing plugins/LootCrates/config.yml and changing useMetrics to false.


  • Drop crates to online players randomly. (Maybe in v1.3.0)
  • Broadcast to online players after somebody opened a crate. (In v1.2.0)

Other Plugins

  • SurpriseEggs - Another awesome crate plugin, but allows bigger inventory for every "eggs".
  • BetterPositionTP - A better way to travel around the world(jk, but it is simple and useful).
  • LootBox - An alternative, similar plugin. (It isnt my plugin however, just a suggestion :) )
