    (Sorry if this comes off as rude, I'm only curious:)

    Are you working on updating it to 1.1R5/1.2? Reading and writing works, but bookshelves don't at all.

    I really hope a 1.2 version comes out for this plugin. One of my favorite RPG plugins :D

    Um, there's already an update for 1.2.3... did you bother checking the BukkitDev page?

    I kinda object to the Metrics thing... specifically, I think it should be opt-in, not opt-out. Though I'm not entirely sure I understand what it's doing, even after looking at the source code.

    What's the "nice inventory stacking" or whatever?

    I understand that, but if it were opt-in, nobody would bother to opt-in. That would make it pretty much useless. All it does is contact a server every half hour and say, "Hey, I'm using BookWorm!" and it sends a couple random stats, like how many pages have been read and how many lines have been written. I guess if a lot of people object I can remove it, but I thought it would be interesting to see. As far as I'm aware no identifying information is sent, just a UUID for the server. You can see the data it collects here:


    You can also read Hidendra's thread about it here:


    I previously used Spout's inventory listeners to make the stack prevention behave. Without it there are client side glitches, where the client thinks books should be stacked, but the server knows they aren't. So now I switched to your new inventory events. It just prevents books from stacking with the InventoryClickEvent.

    I suppose it's okay if it's made clear upon startup and doesn't send right away when the server is started. Basically, as long as the possibility of opting out is not concealed and the chance to opt out is given before any data is sent (without needing to manually create a config file).

    I believe colored names interfere with this, as in my server i have a green-colored name (&agabriel11798) and this plugin sees my name as "&Agabriel11798" making it so nobody can write in their own books.

    What plugin are you using to add colored names? It really shouldn't cause any issues.

    Colorme it forces colors, instead of leaving it null

    I love the plugin. It would be great if you could make it so you could scroll over the book and have it's title, but since its so cool...
    Could you try to make a small plugin that is compatible with this that could allow you to color books? And possibly have a type of book that could only be read by admin.


    Best mod... EVER

    I originally had it so you could only read by clicking in air, but that ended up being confusing. I guess I could ignore right clicks on containers. As for the stacking glitches, it has to do with the fact that your client thinks it stacked, but the server thinks it didn't. In the end, the server wins out, and attempting to do anything with the stacked items will unstack them, but it does cause funny glitches,' said Nisovin.

    There used to be a problem like this with bows, so you can make books like bows, since Notch fixed the whole 'right clicking on containers shoots an arrow' thing.
    It might help

    You can fix messed up books by disconnecting, going to the plugins folder, finding the book that disappeared, copying the .txt, then pulling it into a book that you can make, or one that you have and don't need. Then reload the plugin. This should replace the book you erased and copied the old book into with the old book.

    If that was too confusing, tell me.

    This probably isn't possible without spout, and I don't want to use spout, but if it is possible, could you make it so that (you could make it only for the one running the server, or with command) you can put minecraft AND ONLY MINECRAFT screenshots into the book?

    I can't use spout, so is it possible if you could make the books GUI be like the singleplayer 'Tomes' mod made by Pinkemma without spout, or do you need spout to do that?

    These are both impossible without client-side mods.

    Uh, no. The proper way to fix that is to call event.setUseInteractibleBlock(Result.DENY). (Something like that anyway.)

    If you added colors, could you allow it to customize the actual text in the book, not just the author, title and pages?

    Here's a french tutorial made in 1.2.3 :

    Hello. I recently updated this plugin on his last version but since, all the special characters like "ç", "à",... do not appear in game when we read a book. They are in the .txt file though.

    Did I miss something in my config file or is it a bug of the last version? Thanks.

    Is it possible that you could create a chest organizer plugin that is like SkyChest, but allows you to change what it sorts by in the config, for example, a few of the sorting options would be: colorcoding, by itemid, by type of block
    Is that possible?

    Do you need your players to have spout too to get the name of the book when you pass your mouse over it?

    Please read this forum thread for information about my future plans for this plugin once Minecraft 1.3 is released.

    I somehow can't seem to get copies of books in bookshelves.
    Is this a bug or why isn't it working?
    Everything else works fine. I can still read the book by right-clicking the bookshelf...

    Version? Errors on console?
