    BukkitContribEssentials - Textures, capes, music, notifications, and more!
    Version: 0.1.3

    BukkitContrib is an amazing plugin. Unfortunately, it does nothing on its own that can be used by a non-programmer. BukkitContribEssentials uses many of the features of BukkitContrib without needing any code to be written other than a simple configuration file.

    • Custom texture packs, globally or one per world
    • Custom player capes and skins
    • Custom player titles - can be multiple lines
    • Play music from Minecraft or from a URL, globally (requires OP) or just to yourself (/playmusic command)
    • Custom notifications when entering an area - Includes name, description, any item icon, and (optionally) music
    • Automatically installs BukkitContrib if it's not already available
    Download - Source Code


    Version 0.1.3
    • Updated to work with BukkitContrib 0.1.6
    • Added version command
    • Added reload command
    • Fixed players not getting capes and skins when the /reload command was used
    Version 0.1.2 (2,291 downloads)
    • Fixed log spam when entering a region
    • Added the ability for custom music to be played when entering regions (previously custom music was only available via the /playmusic command)
    Version 0.1.1 (326 downloads)
    • Stopped trying to load BukkitContrib before the check to see if BukkitContrib is installed.
    • BukkitContribEssentials will now display an error message in the server console if an invalid URL for a texture pack is used.
    • Fixed edge case where a player leaving within 1/20 of a second from joining would create log spam.
    Version 0.1 (73 downloads)
    • Initial release
    Default config too confusing?
    Here's a different example:

    Cosmic Break

    i have two tracks playing at the same time, how do i make it stop?

    have added it but cant find a link to the wikki or some help files or well anything!
    cant figure out what the commands are to add regions etc
  4. Offline


    I think the two music tracks at once issue might be caused by changing the server's settings without restarting your client. If you just log out and in without closing Minecraft it seems to keep the old music in memory and will end up playing both.

    found a glitch
    we set it manualy to use steampunk texture on a world called oldworld, on all others we set it to '' so that players could use there own textures open entering them however if i go to old world i get the steampunk texture, perfect but when i leave oldworld it fails to reset my texture, so i have to log out change texture log back in, players will hate that
        default: ''
        worldold: http://**our file storage url**/steampunk.zip
        pvpworld: ''
        world: ''
        skyworld: ''
    could this be because we edited the file in notepad++ instead of using an ingame command (we couldnt find what they are lol), very impressed it changed the texture pack though (and downloaded it)

    also is there a link to a gallery for capes?
  6. i might just be blind and/or stupid but how the hell do you make/upload capes? i put my username in under player: and a pre made URL of a cape (because i don't know how to make one) but it doesn't show up on my character (and yes i have the Client Side mod installed.)

    another thing that would be GREAT! would be a wiki or some sort of explanation on how to use this.

    [Edit] ive been working on trying to make it work for the last 45 minutes and it is pretty well impossible for my feeble mind to comprehend.

    ok, i figured out the region problem, i got multiverse installed so i can make more worlds on 1 server, so i tested it on a NEW world and it worked, tested the same config on a OLD world from befour i got bukkitcontrib installed and it didn't work, tested on a 2nd OLD world and didn't work again. I will try to figure out the exact thing in the world but i think this is it!

    what you can do is make an empty texturepack, if a texturepack is selected mincraft replaces the existing textures from the pack and if they don't exist it uses the default file.
    you can also copy the mincraft pack and use it as a texture pack.

    this is my config:
            title: 'Duckdoom5
                The Great'
            cape: cape url
    some url's don't work keep that in mind, that is why mine won't work the first time.

    this" glitch" you call it is because " means you don't force any texturepack, it works the same as in normal minecraft if you select a texturepack and change world your texturepack wont be edited too, so you can also make an empty one or use the minecraft files to make the default texturepack.

    minecraft.net, why would you change it with the plugin anyway?

    Ok i found my glitch with areas, seems its VERY specific, i tried every corner setup and only ONE worked.
    i had to set my MAX as the SW corner of the cuboid, and the Min as my NE corner. no other arrangements worked.
  9. Offline


    I had a similar problem. I found if I set the Y values minimum to 0 and the max to whatever, and the made sure the max/min were in the right corners, like yourself, then it will work after both a server and client reboot.

    And for everyone else out there... over the weekend I will try to put out a tutorial video... can;t make any promises but I will try!
  10. and is there any way i can get colored names? like using the &1 &2 &3 etc.

    and... is there any way to get the emblem next to the name aswell (or above)
  11. Offline


    is there no way to make it go to what ever texture pack the player had active before the server forced the one on him?
    say im useing mia texture pack i go to worldold where steampunk texturepack is enforced, cant it log mia, then when i exit old world to go to any world that does not enforce a texture have it look at the log and switch it back? (this would cause much less grief)

    Question, this mod is caching the files on the players HD, is there a way to short hand to the files especialy the music.
    the URL is very long, the file name is very short

    typing /playmusic -global -custom W2.midi is much faster then typing
    /playmusic -global -custome http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/ad...music-notifications-and-more-953.25399/W2.mid
    for the second and each following playing of the song.

    ALSO i have a problem with /playmusic playing one wav everytime i play any other wav , and im getting complaints it plays even during normal game occurances of music.
    dragging the volume to 0% then back up to 100% will cancel the overlaid music and keep playing the normal ingame music
    bug? a setting? any ideas?

    Exactly what I was thinking. The config doesn't even describe what the values mean or how to set the config up.

    can u make it stop music on region exit please
  16. Offline


    I have a suggestion: can you make it so that when you enter a region that you have the possibility to add a permissions to the permissions file, so you can make it so: when you enter a region you have the permissions to use a warp to that region.

    Can anyone give working link with example skin ?
  18. Offline


    Hmm you should add a command to reload the config in the game so it does not require a restart, or reloading all the plugins on the server.
  19. Offline


    any idea why when i load up minecraft and goto multiplayer it crashes? also, i see a sort of "crashdump" screen for a second then it dissapears how do i see it in its entirety, singleplayer works fine, its just multiplayer thats acting up
  20. Offline


    Make your max values the higher numbers.
                x: 255
                y: 85
                z: 115
                x: 245
                y: 0
                z: 120
    Then restart both server and client and it SHOULD work.
    (Only reason I rounded it to the nearest 5 is because it tends to work better in my opinion and setting the minimum Y to 0 makes it work no matter how deep you are in the region, but that is my preference!)

    Make sure there are no conflicting plugins with bukkitcontribessentials. That's just about all I can offer on this :)

    I would also like this feature. :)

    you have a tab instead of a space in the line with your skin, you cant use tab with yml files :)
    grab notepad++ (free and googleble) use that to edit all ymls, makes them much eaiser :)

    I love to see working global music and in-game commands for adding, deleting, and changing skins, cloaks, and titles. I guess I'd like to be able to create, update, and remove regions and their messages as well.

    Also, GUI for commands would be neat once BukkitContrib is capable of what would be needed.

    Are you able to hide "titles" completely? When I leave the field blank, it almost looks like they have an exclamation mark above their head.

    I need help. I'm trying to use this TexturePack. You can download it here. So I copy the link and put it in the config. heres what it looks like.

    Where it says default... thats where you put the link for the texture pack to become the default texture pack.

    I have installed everything correctly, I have gotten my users to install the MC Client for BukkitContrib, I have installed BukkitContrib Client and the server one... But they cant see what I have edited.

    so you absolutely need an Http accessible server?? can just put your texture pack in it like the textures folder?

    Suggestion : make region selection Ingame, it would be awesome

    Since BukkitContrib was updated to 0.1.4 My server crashes a few seconds after joining. I think it's because it tries to load my custom texture pack but something happens thus resulting in crash. I really need help, my server is down because of this!

    I'd just unload bukkitcontribessentials in the meantime so at least you'll be up...
