With this Plugin you can hand out a written book on first join (maybe containing the rules) or get other saved books (maybe with admin commands) via command.

Check out the Converter tool for textfiles created by Marcsello ConverterPage


requires Java7

  • save books ingame. for this you must hold the book
  • books can contain the &0,&1... color codes
  • books can contain "§" formatting
  • define the book given on first join or turn feature off
  • per book permission so your Builders can't get the admin Commandbook
  • give a book to an other player
  • can override /help and /rules so a defined book is inserted instead (needs or sb.rules permission)
