    How do I get/code the supply crates as seen on hive survival games?
    Does anybody know code to make pistons or a block open up a custom inventory or gui like supply crates? If you do or have any suggestions please feel free to help.

    I'm not sure if this is what you are after but here is how to open a chest on a players right click of a block.

    Code:
    private Inventory Storage;
    if(e.getClickedBlock().getType() == Material.IRON_BLOCK && e.getAction() == Action.RIGHT_CLICK_BLOCK ) {
                Storage = Bukkit.getServer().createInventory(null, 27,  ChatColor.GREEN + "storage");
                e.getPlayer().openInventory(Storage);

    When I say make I mean how do I create them in a eclipse. I need code on how to make the Supply crates as seen on hive. And if you do not know how they look the are the piston boxes.

    I believe the item ID is 36:6, you can work from there :)

    Code:
    public void placeBox(Location loc)
    {
        loc.getBlock().setTypeIdAndData(36, (byte)6, false);
    }

    I think he's asking for a method to determine the locations of the crates.

    That creates a block with id 36, damage value 6, and some boolean like you asked?

    Okay? But if I do use that how would I spawn the block in so I can place it?

    NicksTheBoss I think you are using the crates in an Arena. Or not? But you need to set the locations of the crates. Maybe with an Command.

    You cannot "place" a 6 sided piston block. However, what you can do is place chests in your map, and items in them. Then before the game you can iterate through the map, and change each chest to 36:6, and get the items in the chest. Then you could maybe store them as metadata? When you open the piston crate, you would then get that metadata and place it in the inventory. Hypothetically that would work.

    Okay. Is there anyway easier way?

    You got a example?

    I'm having a problem with creating the crates and actually being able to place them.

    You can't place them -_-

    The Hive has Mapmakers place sponges where the normal chests are and when it is accepted, they will remove all the sponges and set them to crates. Ender chests represent Tier 2 chests (At cornucopia and special places)

    The crates fall with world.spawnFallingBlock() and use block.setTypeIdAndData(33, (byte) 6, true);

    NicksTheBoss I tried a billion ways to place them before, you have to use the method above to set the type/damage value. That being said, you could always listen for a block place event, and use some unused or not very used block like a sponge. Then set the type on placement. Storing items inside is a different thing, though, maybe text file or config? You can also load them into a HashMap on enable, and save them on disable.

    Edit: Ninja'd :p (kinda)

    I am probably going to use a block that can be placed in minecraft. Well if you have essentials. But the id for it is 43:8

    NicksTheBoss

    So the 43:8 block
    So I tried the 43:8 one and it worked :) But I still want the piston sided block. So if you know how to use EntityChangeBlockEvent so I can make a useless block turn into the crate , It will help.

    Use the code that PHILLIPS_71 used and then with WorldEdit place a block like cobblestone then use the wand and gather the positions, then use the command //replace <block> 33:6
