    Im Sorry if this has been started Before.but Where Exactly Do i Start? I know with Hmod there was an exact guideline to making a plugin...But you needed *Hooks and Listeners*. What Are those exactly?does bukkit even have those?Maybe one of the admins here could give me a quick code to start?

    Plugin Idea:
    Since im 100% NEW to java i want to start small.. *of course*
    I would like to make a plugin that when you type in /ItemList it would give you a whole id list of the Blocks,tools etc....

    Since you are new to Java start with Google ;)

    As for bukkit, try the tutorial.

    And finally, listing the names of items is not possible through bukkit AFAIK. Of course you can always just put the whole text into your plugin or read it from a file, but that's not what you had in mind, is it?

    Wow ok So Since i cant do that.. what could i try? Maybe a Motd plugin?
  4. Lol i love how everyone is linking to tutorial but the tutorial was written by a person who hasn't programmed a plugin in his life be4 (Me!)

    Save the file. Eclipse has the problem of the error report not updating.

    Oh I see, remove < and > from the names. So it looks like this:

    Thanks! It worked. Now Ill just continue till i run into another problem :D

    My New Idea is a *Home Generator*. You Select 2 diagonal spots on the ground and then specify a block hieght and it will create a home. But it wont automatically make it. you need to have the materials to do so... Will Something like this work???

    Thanks Again!

    Hmm ok im at this point. What is the name for Woodplanks? I typed in WOOD as you can see and it came up blue. So am i correct?

    But i dont understand.... In my plugin i want to be able to set a tool i.e axe to be the main builder tool to create the 2 points. so how would i do something like that? 1st being able to select the tool to build then being able to set the points...

    public void onBlockPlace(BlockPlaceEvent event) {
    //Get the player doing the placing
    Player player = event.getPlayer();
    //Get the block that was placed
    Block block = event.getBlockPlaced();
    //If the block is a torch and the player has the command enabled. Do this.
    if(block.getType() == Material.WOOD && HomeXpertPlayerListener.plugin.enabled(player)){
    player.sendMessage("You Constructed A Building!");

    I think you would need the X/Y/Z coords for block placed and the XYZ coords for the 2nd corner, then you need to have it block fill for each XYZ in between XYZ1, XYZ2, if ( wood count => XYZcount) {then for each XYZ coord plaec a wood block and then count towards XYZ2}
    else {error not enough wood}
    or that's how I would do it, unless there is an easier way.. But this would be the logical way.

    Well, that would do a huge block of wood so you would have to just do some math for a home that's all
