Spoutcraft Plugin

What is SpoutcraftPlugin?

Notice: This is not intended to be used on any CraftBukkit server beyond 1.6.4 R2.0. It is NOT compatible with version 1.7.x or 1.8.x.

SpoutcraftPlugin, formerly SpoutPlugin, is a framework to bridge the ever-widening chasm between single player mods, and multiplayer Bukkit plugins. On its own, it does very little. Expect no changes beyond some interface enhancements and minor speed improvements on the client and moderate speed improvements on the server. Through it, Bukkit plugins can do the previously impossible. Currently, plugins can seamlessly manipulate and monitor inventory, audio, sound effects, skins, player titles, alter the main in-game HUD, and launch popup notifications on the player's client.

I thought this project was discontinued?

A few months ago, it was announced that the Legacy project, Spoutcraft & Spoutcraft Plugin, were discontinued, but due to the continued support from Dockter, this project was reborn and given a new home at http://spoutcraft.org. The Spoutcraft team will continue to maintain the project until its impossible to do so.
