ScrollingMenuSignScrollingMenuSign lets players execute commands with a simple click on a scrollable sign, map, icon, hologram or Spout menu view. Players can scroll through menus by right-clicking, and execute commands by left-clicking (button bindings are configurable). Redstone views allow commands to be executed when a redstone signal (on/off/toggle) is received. Sign views can consist of multiple signs for larger menus, and can be configured to emit a redstone signal when scrolled or executed. The sophisticated command parser allows for command costs (economy, items, item durability, health, food, XP), permission elevation and basic flow control (conditional execution & macros), and even more powerful control is possible with external scripting languages (Javascript, Python...).

Possible Applications

  • A menu of station setting commands for Minecart Mania (this is what inspired me to write the plugin in the first place!)
  • Newbie user guide menus
  • Warp menus for your favourite teleportation plugin
  • A basic shop menu - buy/sell/swap items & credits
  • Controlled access to commands that users can't normally run
  • Item reward menus with limited usage count
  • Traps built from redstone views and/or scripts
  • Super-convenient game mode (survival/creative) changer with map and/or spout views


Pretty simple:

  • Copy ScrollingMenuSign.jar into your server's bukkit/plugins folder
  • Optional: install Vault for economy command costs and/or permission group support.
  • Optional: install ProtocolLib to make active items glow.
  • Restart or reload your server.

That's it. ScrollingMenuSign will automatically create a folder called bukkit/plugins/ScrollingMenuSign when it first runs. All data related to the plugin is stored in here.
