    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!

    Found a bug.
    If it has already been reported, I apologize.

    When performing a "/dc which" and right click on the chest.
    The ID being returned, is not the ID of the chest, but the entry in list.

    For instance, doing a "/dc list" and right clicking on a chest. It returns "ID : 5 RADIUS:10".
    Which is actually chest #9. The ID is returning 5, because #9 is fifth on the list.
    Also, noticed that we need to add "dropchest.list" to the list of permissions. My guys couldn't use the command until I specifically added it.

    By the way. I and the rest of my clan LOVE this plug-in. Keep it going. :)

    Hi narrowtux,

    first of all, great plugin!

    I've some issues to clarify as per following:

    1. chest ID - any way to make the chest ID run in sequence after chest removal? It seems like chest IDs keeps on going up and the number will only reset after a server restart.

    2. anyone has minecart storage push/pull working? mind explaining how do i set up a push/pull to a minecart storage?

    *edit* for point 2, I did managed to get the pull from minecart storage working but no for push to minecart storage.
  4. Offline


    1. This is meant to have persistent chest ids that don't change when you delete one.
    2. You have to set at least one filter for pushing or pulling that this works.
  5. Hi could you Plz make a video how to install the plugin. Im not sure what to to.
    To do*
  6. Offline


    Yeah I have 2 chests with filter push set and 2 chests with pull set running on a same minecart storage track. It appears that only the pull is working though, can't get the push chests to fill up the minecart.

    Hello narrowtux great plug-in

    3 issues we have found read through the above post and didn't see anything about these issues if i missed them i apologize

    #1 when useing the bed to fast forward through night cycle seems to break the drop chests , restarting the server fixes the issue

    #2 when someone dies it also breaks the drop chests , restarting the server fixes the issue

    #3 when setting up a chest to push items to a cart it pushes 2 stacks but only one stack is shown in the cart and when i pull to a chest only one stack gets pulled so somewhere in the x fer i am losing a stack of items ( i used stacks of eggs for the test )

    Are these a known issue or do i did i miss something on the install that fixes these issues

    thanks for the great mod keep up the great work

    fixed my issue with using small chest instead of large chest and placing chest 1 block away from minecart track. the chest 2 blocks away couldn't push/pull successfully.

    not sure if it's supposed to be this way though.

    Just put the DropChest.jar into the bukkit plugins folder. That's it, it's installed.
    Then follow the comands in shown in the original post, which also has a video.

    but then when i start the server it said :

    I think you need to install the Permissions plugin. I just tried to run my server without Permissions and got something like that error.

    Thanks for this addon !
  14. Thank it helped alot. :D

    Oh, thanks for pointing it out: The chests have to be the next block to the minecart track. Then it works. Radius is ignored, because this check is much faster.

    can we get an old download or one that doesnt require permisions or is this an error "you may not use DropChest please ask your op to enable this plugin for you"
  19. Offline


    Does anyone know how to setup Eclipse so I can look at this code too?
    I can't get the Permissions to reference, and apparently no one in the Permissions forum knows how to tell me either.


    What am I missing or doing wrong?
    [email protected] - That way you can call me an idiot, or help. I'll understand either way. :)
  20. Offline


    Might be something wrong with the permissions nodes.
    I have 'dropchest.*' in the permissions and I get the same message that scott1997880 mentioned.
    "you may not use DropChest please ask your op to enable this plugin for you"
    However, if I become admin with '*' / all permissions, I can use it fine.

    EDIT: I really should test my idea's before I post. [​IMG]
    You need to give permissions to 'dropchest' as well as 'dropchest.*'

    The PC Tech Guy

    Sorry, but I see this too (just the concurrentmodificationexception), and I've noticed that DropChest either:
    • Doesn't work at all (doesn't suck up items, nor does adding/removing work)
    • Sucks items, but don't appear in the chest
    I'm using CB 531, the RB. Really wished this was fixed... I'll just wait it out.
  22. Offline


    Yeah. I get the error when a player logs out or goes to another world. Then messages saying that a dropchest has broken and will be removed keeps coming up. After that, the chests concerned don't suck up items until a server restart.
  23. Offline


    You have to give the Permission dropchest to everyone who wants to use dropchest. Also, you have to give some of the permissions to someone.
  24. Offline


    thanks alot for the clarification.
  25. Offline


    yeah can you make one that uses group manager or dosnt require premissions
  26. Offline


    No I wont support all of the 132789242 versions of Permission implementing plugins. GroupManager already supports a convenience wrapper for permissions so this should not be a problem.
    Also, I'm waiting for the official Permissions support in bukkit, and will implement permissionsupport in all my other plugins when it works, and not earlier.
