Please note that this is NOT developed by the Spout team, regardless of the name

A note from skawke:

Thanks everyone for the support. When I first created this plugin, it was back when Spout just first came out, and there wasn't many plugins built for it. I built SpoutEssentials purely for my own uses, but released it to the public for fun. After a while, I stopped playing MC, and my intention was to let this plugin die off. I think it's much better if people use the multiple plugins out there that together, they do the same thing as this plugin. Seeing as there still isn't enough to make up SpoutEssentials, I'll attempt to find someone else to maintain or take over the SpoutEssentials name. For now, if you want compatibility with 1.4.6, look down in the comments, someone has compiled a version.


Everyone will return once again skawke. I will keep up your work till i can. DreTaX

Need any help with the configuration?

Post here if you have tips or questions: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/spoutessentials/forum/35848-configuration-help/

Please leave any suggestions if you have some!

If you want a feature added, PM Denkfaehigkeit, not skawke.

Important Notice

I will be re-doing the entire plugin from scratch, due to both formatting, code structure, and simple improvements in the code. Hopefully, with this addition all bugs should be solved.

What is SpoutEssentials?

SpoutEssentials allows for easy aesthetic modification, for you and your users, in tones of fun and unique methods on your Minecraft Server. Extracting the most from Spout, this plugin may allow your users to modify their own skies, listen to music in game, set titles, display capes and more! Take advantage of this ever growing plugin as it starts to redefine the way we use commands using in game interfaces.

Important Notes

Because illiterate idiots like *Lextao* can't seem to read the entire post, look at modules.yml in order to disable a feature. If you enable ON SCREEN COMMANDS in the modules.yml, you WILL break every plugin you have that uses on screen buttons. Totally, my fault, a fix will be out soon (hopefully). Do not use OnScreenCommands if you use a plugin that uses buttons, such as ChestShop.

The dimensions for splash screens must be 427*239.

Update Information

I'm going to fix major fix it or break it bugs, but as far as feature updates go, I'm going to wait until the Bukkit/Spout merge occur and when everything works as it's supposed to. When that happens, I'll post a revised, faster, better, more advanced version that is also open-source.

For the meantime, PLEASE suggest ideas, I'd love to add as many features as possible so please, bring your ideas!
