    ChestHarvester - turns chests into stationary farming equipment
    Version: 1.3
    Download: ChestHarvester.jar

    ChestHarvester is now on BukkitDev

    - i will not be updating this thread now, check there for updates ;)

    /chestharvester (ch) reload: reload configuration file (OP only)

    chests can collect drops within a 1-block radius on the faces or from the top
    clicking on a chest will farm the surrounding area, or in the direction the player is looking, if enabled
    supports double-chests!
    to minimize server strain, scans every 5 seconds & only allows farming every 2
    (this can be changed with "AutoCollectScanInterval" and "ManualHarvestWaitInterval" in the config)
    can be set to use a hoe to till new farmland
    can harvest sugarcane & cactus, not just farmland :)

    ChestHarvester.harvest for a user to be able to click on a chest for it to harvest
    (can be disabled)

    My small farm:
    (and, a few moments later)

    Fan Video: :D


    iConomy support?
    Autoharvest, so chests run automatically?
    "special block" must be on to operate?
    run chests on redstone?
    make player manually set a chest for it to collect items?

    Changelog (open)

    Version 1.2 - 7/4/11
    • item scanner moved to bukkit scheduler (more thread-safe)
    • removed item-collection at corners (now just the faces & top of chest)
    • better harvesting permissions checks (checks if interact is canceled)
    • will now stop harvesting when chest is full
    • added option to require a hoe to till new ground
    • corner harvesting is now optional
    • can now harvest sugarcane and cactus
    • fixed nonstackable stacking when there is only one chest
    • fixed stacking so stacks into first matching before first empty slot
    • added permission node "ChestHarvester.harvest" for the ability to run a harvester
    Version 1.1.3 - 4/8/11
    • updated for 670
    Version 1.1.2 - 4/4/11
    • fixed onCommand reload when turning on/off the chest auto pickup
    • optional "AutoCollectScanInterval" and "ManualHarvestWaitInterval" changed to seconds
    • now collects between 1-3 seeds, instead of 0-3
    • fixed another double chest error: if harvesting from top with seeds in bottom, top would overwrite bottom
    Version 1.1.1 - 4/2/11
    • fixed a bug where adding an item from the head chest to the tail was being lost
    Version 1.1 - 4/2/11
    • fixed a serious itemdrop error: when first chest is full, second half would be duplicated
    • block directions decreased: will only enter a chest from beside or on top of the chest (prefers from top)
    • fixed double-chests so items are deposited at the top
    Version 1.0 - 4/2/11
    • Initial Release

    This looks awesome but something I've been looking for is self-loading dispensers. This would make machines a lot more powerful I think. Is this a possible addition or conversion for your plugin?

    mine doesn't work automated, works perfect manually though... there's not a catch to it is there? using red stones or something

    Okay, I LOVE this. It's so simple, and the functionality is great. One thing I would like a lot is if it can pick up *ANY* block dropped near the chest. It would be so useful for mob grinders, etc. Please get back when you can!

    I wish to collect the items by chestcart.
    If it is possible, It can send collected items from low-area to high-area.

    Please make an update for this, i really like this plugin and my players enjoy using it, is there a way to add in harvesting melons and pumpkins?
    That would be awesome
    Really hope this plugin isn't abandoned, as it does great on servers!
    Keep up the great work jascotty2
    Let us know if this is going to be updated or not ;D

    Long time no see jascotty2. You will notice that this thread has now been placed into the Inactive Plugin subforum.
    If you wish to revive this plugin, please ensure that you update and test compatibility with the latest recommended Bukkit build before reporting your original post, asking for it to be moved back to the release forum.

    Thanks for your time.
