    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.

    Here is a link to a slightly updated version. I overlooked a deprecated method and went ahead and worked around it.

    SRC is also included in the zip. So if anyone else wants to maintain... Enjoy :)

  6. Does this work with the new Bukkit Permissions/Super Perms?

    I didnt go that far in the update, but I believe if you use the Bukkit permissions bridge it would.

    I like this concept!

    You have a version mismatch...

    Just downloaded the 1.24 jar and when it runs, it says this:
    08:08:31 [INFO] [ChopTree] Attempting to create directory...
    08:08:31 [INFO] [ChopTree] Success.

    I've noticed it too. Its because I didnt notice that when the original version was programed it was doing"ChopTree 1.23 enabled!");

    instead of checking the plugin.yml for the version number. Open the jar with a unzip program like winzip or something and check the plugin.yml. It should say 1.24.

    I've noticed that problem too, its not a critical flaw.

    it finally works again :))) thanks

    or no, chopping trees makes everyone on my server get MINECRAFT CRASHED, not server but the client, which is strange

    or wait sorry plugin is not the problem... does anyone knows anything about a crash with light blue screen and some see trough dirt in up left corner?

    Are you running WorldGuard?
    I am not sure but that seemed to cause lots of problems with previous versions similar to yours.
    Also try using the edit button instead of posting new threads, it looks better that way :p

    Chopping trees is definitely causing the blueish then black Minecraft screen of death. I've been struggling with this for over a week now. I really don't want to have to remove this but the client crashing is soooo frustrating.

    HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP MY CLIENT BLACKSCREENS AND BLUESCREENS! I removed the plugin and RESTARTED the server! It's still happening!! FUCK

    If you use an old version of the plugin on the wrong build then stuff like that happens.
    Use the latest version.
    Also, if you had read at least a bit in the posts in the thread you'll see that this is a common problem when using an old version on a new build and that it fixes itself after a few minutes of doing nothing.

    I'm running the new version on my relatively new server, and clients still crash occasionally when chopping trees. Anyone who approaches the chopped tree will also crash. The only resolution I've found is to to manually teleport affected people away from the doom tree, and wait for the the doom tree to despawn.

    @Ha1uciNate @Tobitheminer @ariennex
    What other plugins are you using?
    Maybe that way I can find out if there's a conflict with a certain one.
  20. Offline


    So I'm trying to set it so you can only use a gold axe for it to work so i just deleted all the other pickaxes in the config folder and set allow all items to false and i saved it and the plugin still thinks that all items are allowed even after a server and client reset. plz help me.

    just saw that it could not load the config.yml please help!

    It is a known error, but it only applies for some people.
    What plugins are you using? I am fairly sure it's a conflict with something and I am trying to find out which one it is. And for that I need as many plugin lists as possible so I can outrule.

    Choptree 1.24 works with MCMMO 1.0.48 fine on bukkit #1k

    It doesn't happen to me so it's not the plugin itself. I just haven't found out what everyone getting the error has in common.

    Are you crashing with those plugins or is it running fine?
  28. Offline


    When adding this to permissions "choptree.override.useanything" is when it crashed me and several players. Before adding that it worked fine.

    cuz 95% players dont use axe when attack the trees
