Is the default Minecraft music a little dull? Would you like to add atmospheric music to your regions? Now you can, with RegionJukebox! Setup your cemeteries with scary organ pipes, or your relaxing vacation home with nice chimes. Just define a region with WorldGuard and then assign either a Minecraft record or a custom resource pack sound to the region. Whenever a player enters the region, the music will play for that player!
Bring in Version 2.0! :D
Holy crap people! I finally did it! Version 2.0 is here! The one feature everyone has been asking for is here now. Drum roll please... Custom music! You can now assign regions to play sounds from resource packs. Just use the same name you use in the sounds.json file in the command. For those that still use the beautiful default Minecraft records, don't worry, you can still use those.
Music. Is. Everywhere. EVERYWHERE! The music now plays at a configurable "speaker" block in the region. If you configure the region to play from a note block, then the music will play from every note block in the region. This way you can have it play from different spots in the region, or even have it play from every grass block (I suggest not doing this, it's pretty intense).
Looping works wonderfully now. Looping is no longer a global setting, and can now be configured per region. The only thing that is needed to loop is the length of the music being played. For custom sounds, you're going to have to guess and check a little bit to get it right. For those using default Minecraft records, you don't even have to worry about it. The plugin already knows the lengths of each record, so you can just leave that argument out of the command.
How to Install:
- WorldGuard IS NEEDED
- WorldGuard Region Events IS NEEDED
- Just drop jar into the plugins folder and you're set!
- Assign music to predefined WorldGuard regions
- Play either Minecraft records or custom resource pack music
- Loop the music! Configurable per region
- Assign a "speaker" block to play the sound at in the region
- Got any suggestions? Go ahead and tell me about them!

If you really want the source code, go ahead and decompile the jar file. Really, I don't care. Do what you want!
Q: Is it possible to make the music play throughout the whole region?
A: Yes! Version 2.0 fixed that! You can configure a "speaker" block to play the sound out of. You then place the designated "speaker" block all around your region.
Q: Can you make the music fade when a player leaves the region?
A: Kind of... Depends on if you're using the default Minecraft records or not. If you're using the records, they stop pretty abruptly. If you're using custom sounds, I actually can't stop those from playing. So as the player walks away from the sound source, it will fade away. If you guys want the records to act the same way as the custom sounds, let me know. I can definitely do that.
Q: Can you add custom music?
A: Yes! Version 2.0 to the rescue again! You can now configure regions to play custom resource pack sounds. Just use the same sound name as the sound.json file.
Q: Can you fix the region within a region thing?
A: I could, but don't want to. That goes beyond the scope of simplicity. That also gets into region detection and that's a lot more complicated.
Another thing that comes up a lot is people telling me the plugin is unresponsive or the events stopped working. I would like to let you know how I handle these. I first see a comment and trying to recreate the problem, load the freshest plugin onto my server. My dev server is always, ALWAYS, running the latest build to keep up with the client. The plugins however, are not, as plugins do not need to run the latest build to stay stable. I then try to recreate the problem using the current available plugin version and the current server. Most of the time, it works. If something doesn't work for you, you can try to delete the plugin and the data folder, and reinstall a fresh copy. If the problem persists, please explain exactly what the problem is and/or a step by step on how to reproduce the problem. Telling me "it doesn't work" doesn't help me at all.
