    DropChest - Chests that absorb dropped items
    Version 0.8.2
    Important! When migrating from 0.6 to any above version, you have to move the DropChest.txt from server/plugins/DropChest.txt to server/plugins/DropChest/DropChest.txt
    This is because I have to follow the Bukkit plugin saves guidelines.

    This plugin automatically adds dropped items to near chests. That is very useful for automatic farming and monster traps that gather loot.
    • automatically suck dropped items that are near a chest to that chest
    • customizable warning if the chest is nearly full
    • list your DropChests and watch how much percent is still free
    • Permissions
    • Filter
    • Storage Minecart support
    • Dispenser and Furnace support
    • Item information
    • Chest protection
    • Automatic Owner tracking
    • Double-Chest support

    Show commands (open)

    To add a chest to the "watchlist", type
    /dropchest add [radius]
    After that, rightclick the chest that you want to add. Radius is the radius in which the Chest should suck items. Default value is 2.

    To remove a chest from the "watchlist", just type
    /dropchest remove chestid
    where chestid is the number of the chest that you get when you call /dropchest list

    You can list the chests that are on the watchlist via
    /dropchest list
    You can adjust the radius of a chest via
    /dropchest setradius chestid radius
    You can check which id and radius the Chest in front of you has:
    /dropchest which
    after that, rightclick on the Chest to get information about it.
    If you are sitting in front of the console, or don't want to rightclick, you can use
    /dropchest info chest
    It will generate the same output as /dc which.

    You can teleport to a chest via
    /dropchest tp chestid
    where chestid is the ID of the dropchest

    You can set the name of a DropChest via
    /dropchest setname {chestid} {newname}
    The name is displayed in chest is full warnings, and in the DropChest list!

    If you migrate from 0.6 to 0.7, you can set the owner of a dropchest by typing:
    /dropchest setowner {chest} {newowner}
    You can protect a chest by typing
    /dropchest protect {chest} {on|off}
    You can always use /dc instead of /dropchest if you are lazy.

    Another very helpful command is /dcitem:
    /dcitem [NAME|id]
    This can be used to obtain the name of an item by it's id or get an id of the item-name.
    This doesn't work with all names, though.

    Use the new command /chestinfo {name|id} to get info about what's inside the chest.
    Omit the argument and rightclick on any chest to get info about that.
    >/dcitem 4
    >/dcitem cobblestone

    Show Configuration (open)

    You can configure DropChest by pasting the contents of the following block to plugins/DropChest/dropchest.cfg
    #Should the dropchest drop items when it gets a redstone signal?
    #How long should the dropchest not suck items after it has dropped them
    #Should users be able to protect chests like in LWC?
    #Which is the default radius if you omit the radius argument in /dropchest add?
    #Which should be the maximum radius for players that have not dropchest.setBig and aren't ops?
    #At which fill-status should the chest warn you?
    #Which message should appear as warning?
    #You can use this variables (example):
    # $owner : the owner of the chest (narrowtux)
    # $name  : the name of the chest (my superduper mobtower chest/#42)
    # $fill  : The fill status, in percent (81)
    warnmessage=$owner, your chest $name is nearly full($fill%).

    Filter / Storage Minecarts
    Show Filter/Storage Minecarts (open)

    Filters have changed in version 0.6. There are now 3 seperate filters that are for sucking items, pulling items from passing minecarts and pushing them to passing minecarts.
    You can now set the filters by either using commands or using the interactive mode. Let me show you the interactive mode first:
    to begin, type
    /dropchest filter {suck|push|pull}
    Note: choose one of suck, push or pull, please (for example /dropchest filter suck)
    Then you will enter the interactive mode. In this mode you can edit the selected filter by hitting the chest with the desired item in your hand.
    To edit another filter, type the above command again.
    To finish your filter, type
    /dropchest filter finish
    Commands mode:
    /dropchest filter {suck|push|pull} {chestid} {itemid|itemtype|clear}
    Call the filter-command like above, as second argument, use the chest-ID, and as third argument, either type the item-ID, the name of the item (as they appear here: org.bukkit.Material) or type clear to clear this filter.
    Please note! The suck filter acts different from the Pull/Push-Filter when it's empty. When the suck-filter is empty, the chest will suck every item. When a Pull/Push filter is empty, it won't take or give any items to a passing minecart.

    Show Permissions nodes (open)

    You can use these nodes:
    • dropchest - To get the right to use DropChest
    • dropchest.create - To call /dropchest add
    • dropchest.remove - To call /dropchest remove chestid
    • dropchest.radius.set - To set the radius of a Chest to something else than 2
    • dropchest.radius.setBig - To have unlimited radius
    • dropchest.which - To have access to the /dropchest which command
    • dropchest.teleport - To be able to teleport via /dropchest tp chestid
    • dropchest.filter - To set or reset filters
    • dropchest.filter.set - To set filters in interactive mode
    • dropchest.filter.reset - To reset filters in interactive mode (click with nothing in hand)
    • dropchest.list - To have access to /dc list and /dc info
    • dropchest.destroy - To be able to break a dropchest without removing it before.
    • dropchest.protect - To be able to protect a chest
    • dropchest.moderator - To be able to modify a dropchests properties even if you're not the owner. Also, ops and the console can do that.
    You can use these variables:

    • dropchestmaxradius - To adjust the maximum radius for a group or a user
    How to use variables:

          dropchestmaxradius: 1000
    This is just an example and this also works with groups!

    I had the similar error when I updated to 70(5?) prior, I just thought you made some changes at that update and I just deleted the logfile and let it start from scratch.

    The description in this title always confuses me. I think you're talking about "chests that suck" (i.e. chests that aren't good) now "dropped items" which doesn't make any sense. I never looked at it because I thought it was something that changed the items that appear in dungeons, but now I get it. It looks like a pretty useful plugin really.
  9. Offline



    I am using CB 709. I know it's not a recommended build but I thought I would give you a heads up on a possible bug.
    I am using Dropchest 0.7.
    I have some chests that are set to suck, dirt, gravel and cobblestone. When something else is dropped near them, like wool, I still get a message saying that the chests are nearly full even though the wool is not set to be sucked up by the chests.

    It's not a bug that breaks anything so no rush.

    You started to implement Redtsonethingies, so I had an idea which is the other way around. What about redstone output when a chest is full? Maybe configurable.

    I built an automated Item assortment at a Mobtrap and could use this together with ControllerBlock-Plugin to reroute the waterflow if Chests are full.

    Please turn off debug messages:

    A simple message: "Sucessfully loaded" would be enough!
  12. Offline


    Sorry guys, I simply forgot to remove my debug messages.

    I will implement further redstone support for the next version. then you can decide which action the dropchest should perform if it gets redstone input and on which event (ie. chest full, or furnace burning product available) a switch below the dropchest should be triggered.
    I will make this a per-chest option (like the filters) with default values configureable in dropchest.cfg

    Thanks for the advice, I am from germany so I don't know every ambigous meaning of every word.
    I changed the thread title so it won't confuse people any more ;)

    I just came along a bug with 0.7.1 on CB 733. I use the /dc which command, it says to rightclick the chest to see it's properties, but nothing comes up.
  14. Offline


    can you please implement following permission? So I can set for groups/users individual max. number of owning dropchests. i want that per user only can have 10 dropchests.

          dropchestmaxown: 10

    Good idea!
  16. My Server says to me:
    when the server is startet and I create a minecart with chest

  17. Offline


    Has anyone else run into an issue, where the drop chests work for the first 10 or 15 minutes after the server comes up. Then it stops. No errors, nothing. They just stop picking up, and the "/dc which" command stops working too.

    Which version of DropChest and Craftbukkit do you have got?

    Released version 0.7.3
    • Fixed a bug that came with a new Bukkit release

    I'm using CB733 and DC 0.7.3

    Can we get a CFG setting to enable a verbose mode?
    Make it send console message on everything it does.

    Is it possible to deactivate the "Your Chest is nearly full (x%) messages?

    Set warnfillstatus=-1 in the configuration file.
    The feature that disables it will be up in a minute ;)

  23. Offline


    Release 0.7.4
    • warnfillstatus=-1 in config disables fill-status warning message.
  24. Is there any way to add every block and item to any filter, and then remove ones that I don't want it to push/pull/suck? Maybe something similar to /dc filter push/pull/suck id all
  25. Offline


  26. Offline


    The "warnfillstatus=-1" doesn't work for me.

    My config:

    version 0.7
    #x, y, z, radius, World-Name, nothing, chestid;Suck-Filter;Pull-Filter;Push-Filter
    #Filtered items are separated by ','. Name the items like the names in org.bukkit.Material, e.g. COBBLESTONE
    When I start the server, Bukkit removes the last line. Any solution?
  27. Offline


    That's not the config, that's the data-file. You have to create a file called dropchest.cfg in plugins/DropChest. You can see which values you can enable when you look in the first post and open "Show Configuration".

    Can you do a batch-move-rename action with XenForo? Because ALL the threads are inactive :D
