    ChopTree - Chop trees like cacti or make logs move down while chopping
    Version: 1.24

    There seems to be a plugin conflict where the client crashes with a blue-white screen and keeps crashing for minutes after that.
    If you encounter the error please give me a list of the plugins you are using, with enough lists I will be able to outrule what causes it. Please also tell me if you are using any client-side mods.

    Thanks very much to Arcwolf for developing version 1.24!

    Tested with Craftbukkit build [740], [766], [798], [818], [1000].
    Supports: Permissions v. 2.7.2 (Phoenix) and mcMMO v. 1.0.07.
    Please give me feedback, ask any questions you like and/or provide suggestions!
    Thank you!

    • Lets trees act like cacti - remove a block and all blocks above are yieled too.
    • Or you can make that log blocks move down one by one instead - no more climbing trees.
    • Works with all three tree types (they all yeild their own wood).
    • Also works with "big" trees that have multiple branches - makes felling them a lot easier.
    • Restrict using this plugin to certain tools only.
    • Supports mcMMO and Permissions.
    • Only works on trees, houses made of logs are safe!
    • Chunk protection to make your tree houses safe.

    This plugin was requested by Britich and is inspired by the Canary plugin RealTree by billyoyo.
    However, it is not just a simple port of that plugin, it was made from scratch after Britich's description.

    Approach tree...

    ...and punch it.

    All logs will be yielded.

    The leaves will decay like normal.


    Even though I added a lot of things for version 1.2 it will act like the original one if you don't change any settings - with the exception of players are able to toggle the plugin.​
    To run this plugin just copy it into your plugins folder. On first startup it will create a ChopTree folder and a file, which you can edit.​
    There will be a ChopTree.players file which saves player toggles and a ChopTree.chunks file which saves protected chunks.​

    Properties File:
    Show Spoiler

    The file will look like this when first created:
    # -ChopTree Properties-
    # You can add or change the command and toggle command aliases here.
    # Because of technical limitations the console commands will always be "ChopTree" and "ct", but the in-game comments will be taken from here.
    Command = ChopTree, ct
    Toggle = ToggleChop, tc
    # Here you can change the options (can also be done in-game).
    ActiveByDefault = true
    UseAnything = true
    MoreDamageToTools = false
    InterruptIfToolBreaks = false
    SupportMcmmoIfAvailable = true
    TreeFellerNeeded = false
    LogsMoveDown = false
    OnlyTrees = true
    # -Material List-
    # If the "UseAnything" option is false, the plugin will take the items you can use to chop trees with from here.
    # You can either put in the material's name or its ID.
    mat = WOOD_AXE
    mat = STONE_AXE
    mat = IRON_AXE
    mat = GOLD_AXE
    mat = DIAMOND_AXE
    Command and Toggle can be changed manually by just adding more aliases for them, seperated by commas. Note that if you run the command from the console it will always have the aliases "ChopTree" and "ct", no matter what it says in your file.
    You can also remove either of the lines to disable the command for players completely.

    The options can be changed manually in the file too. To find out which option has which effect look at the "Commands" section below.

    The material list will only be used if the option UseAnything is false. In that case you can specify which items players can use to chop trees with this plugin, other items will not trigger plugin effects (except chunk protection). You can either use the item ID or it's name.
    If you want to make tree chopping more costly you can only allow gold axes for example.
    List of item IDs on Minecraft Wiki, list of all item names in the Bukkit documentation.

    Thanks a ton Paulpkyou! Let me know if you need any help testing the white/blue screen issue to narrow down the conflict or anything. Also if you don't mind it would be cool for you to post updated source. You may even want to just pickup the plugin and make a new forum thread or a page on the dev site, if you don't mind. Assuming this is truly inactive, but it looks to be that way.

    You beat me to it! =) I was about to upload my modified version. Thanks for doing this as this plugin is a must have for so many people.

    Your so awesome!!!! Thank you so much for doing this! I just tested in my server and its working great. There is one thing that I would love to see if you could add to it though. Is there anyway you could put in where the leaves like just drop instead of having to wait for them to decay away? Also I second that you should just pick up this plugin. Thats if you could and would want to.
  6. Offline


    awesome thanks... is it possible for you to make an option for the leaves of the tree to automatically go away when you chop it down? so it doesnt have to slowly decay, it just goes away when u chop the tree down.
  7. Offline


    I'll work on the leaves option in a bit, currently working on other plugins.

    can you make the plugin for 1185 too please??=)

    the plugin linked in the OP works fine with CB 1337 so there really is no point in asking for updates. the server will generate an error how it couldnt pass the blockbreak onto ChopTree but it actually DOES pass it on and the trees get cut down like theyre supposed to, so just ignore that error and everything is dandy.

    It need an update, if the plugin throws errors something goes wrong, so there's a problem which need to be fixed!
    The plugin also needs World Guard support btw...

    error looks like this if anyone cares:

    22:33:38 [SEVERE] Could not pass event BLOCK_BREAK to ChopTree
    java.lang.IllegalAccessError: tried to access field net.minecraft.server.ItemStack.damage from class me.askmeaboutlo0m.ChopTree.ChopTreeBlockListener
    at me.askmeaboutlo0m.ChopTree.ChopTreeBlockListener.updateInventory(
    at me.askmeaboutlo0m.ChopTree.ChopTreeBlockListener.Chop(

    whomever decided to name his package askmeaboutloom (im thinking the choptree author?) - thank you for that, i had a good laugh about it.

    and @above me. yes youre right of course, i think i misphrased my point, which was: you can still use it if you want because its fully functional, so its not like youd be missing out waiting for it to get updated

    I have an updated version with following changes:
    • Permissions always activated
    • Permissions added to plugin.yml (PEX needs it)
    • Instant-Replant (I will maybe change that behaviour, but it's better than nothing :) )
    • WorldGuard region based protection, which is easier than protecting every single chunk
    • Works with the newest build
    + /choptree rp <region name>
    + /choptree regionprotect <region name>

    + choptree.commands.regionprotect
    + choptree.replant

    I love the replant part but i've one question, could you add a function that you can't destroy that sappling for 3 secconds or so (confiugrable) so when you're destroying a tree that you didn't destroy the planted sappling..?
    (sorry for bad english)

    a) 1353? 1337 is recommended, so that might be why.
    b) Look closer at the error:
    'org.bukkit.plugin.UnknownDependencyException: WorldGuard'
    Try installing WorldGuard? His version works for me perfectly.

    Please update the plugin to last Bukkit release!!

    There's a huge problem with this plugin.
    Because it can crash the server. I've many times received the error message "connection error" and discovered that it did so because there were over 4000 items lying at one spot.. in the woods. Obviously it was logs/and or saplings.

    I dunno if there's a way to prevent this. I hope there is because I liked this plugin.

    Tim Visee

    There's a plugin called 'Auto Clear' with this you could say how much items could ly on the ground, so if you set a maximum of 500 it 'll say something in the chat (when there are more than 500 items on the ground) that the plugi is going to remove all the drops within one minute... Hope this helps.. (If you use a Showcase, Simple Showcase plguin or things like that that have shops with items on it, make sure you put the max drop count a little bit heigher because the AutoClear plugin also count and remove that drops..

    Bukkit Build 1337, and ChopTree won't even load. I've redownloaded and reinstalled the plugin twice and get nothing, not even an error message. The jar shows up in McMyAdmin's plugin checklist, but not in the server log / console. Help?
