    - Where creativity meets reality!​

    What is uCreate?
    uCreate is a plugin that allows you to transform any world (or your entire server) into a game similar to Minecraft Classic. Each aspect of uCreate is configurable, letting you have every feature you want, and none that you don't.

    Features: (all totally optional)
    • Automatically activates Notch's creative mode
    • Drop disabling (fixes notch's silly bugs)
    • Weather disabling
    • Creature spawning disabling
    • Time disabling (day or night)
    • Flat map world generator
    • Homes
    • Teleporting
    • Item spawning (/i or /item)
    • Explosion disabling
    • Block physics disbaling
    • Liquid spread disabling
    • Fire spread disabling
    • Permissions
    • ..And more!
    uCreate won't lag your server.

    "But uCreate has so many features, it will lag!"
    Nope. If you don't want a certain feature, uCreate won't even register the listener. Meaning, any feature you don't want, you literally won't have.

    uCreate 2.0 had it's config totally redesigned. It's a lot to take in, so to help you figure it out, I made this neat little chart:
    (as of 2.1, the config was trimmed a lot, due to Minecraft 1.8)
    noFireSpreadtrue/falseDisables fire spreading and damage.
    noLiquidSpreadtrue/falseDisables lava and water spreading.
    noBlockFalltrue/falseDisables sand and gravel physics.
    noExplosionstrue/falseDisables tnt and creeper explosions.
    itemSpawningtrue/falseAllows players to spawn items with /item or /i
    teleporttrue/falseAllows players to teleport to others with /tp
    homestrue/falseAllows players to set their home (/sethome) and go to their home (/home)
    wooltrue/falseAllows players to use the /wool command.
    clearinvtrue/falseAllows players to use the /clearinv command.
    defaultStackSizeAny integer (whole number)The default stack size players will get when using /i or /item
    worldsList of world namesWorlds that will implement uCreate features.
    flatMapHeightAny integer (whole number)How many layers the flatmap should be.
    permissionstrue/falseShould we check for permissions (true) or let everybody do everything(false)?
    noWeathertrue/falseDisables weather.
    noCreaturestrue/falseDisables creature spawning.
    stopTime'off'/'day'/'night'Stops time changing.
    noDropstrue/falseBlock drops (little items) will not spawn. (also fixes bugs in Notch's creative creative)
    breakBedrocktrue/falsePlayers can break bedrock(true)/players can't break bedrock(false)
    Default Config (open)
        noFireSpread: true
        noLiquidSpread: false
        noBlockFall: false
        noExplosions: true
        clearinv: false
        itemSpawning: false
        teleport: false
        homes: false
        wool: false
        permissions: false
        defaultStackSize: 64
        worlds: world1, world3, etc
        flatMapHeight: 3
        noWeather: true
        noCreatures: true
        stopTime: 'off'
        noDrops: true
        breakBedrock: false

    Syntax: /command OR /command [required] (optional)
    Using permissions in uCreate is totally optional. In the config (under 'settings') is an option called 'permissions' If set to false, no permissions will be used, so everybody can use all the features. If it's set to true, only people with specified permissions will be able to do certain things.
    Supported permissions: SuperPerms/PermissionsBukkit, Permissions 3.x, Permissions 2.x, *PermissionsEX (*needs confirmation)
    ucreate.*Gives acess to all of the uCreate permissions. (default Op)(works with SuperPerms)
    ucreate.notchGives players access to the features of Notch's creative mode.
    ucreate.itemspawnAllows players to use the /i and /item commands.
    ucreate.homesAllows players to use /home and /sethome.
    ucreate.teleportAllows players to use the teleport commands.
    ucreate.adminAllows players to bypass teleport requests.
    ucreate.woolAllows players to use the /wool command/
    ucreate.clearinvAllows players to use the /clearinv command.

    How to make your worlds generate a uCreate flatmap:
    Just follow these instructions to make specific worlds generate a uCreate flatmap. This will not overwrite existing worlds, however newly generated chunks will be flat.
    1. Edit "flatMapHeight" in the config.
    2. Decide which worlds you want to be flat ('flatworld' for this example)
    3. Open your bukkit.yml file (in your server directory) with a text/yaml editor.
    4. Add this to your bukkit.yml (where 'flatworld' is the name of your world):
                      generator: uCreate
    5. Enjoy your new flat map!

    What happened to the old uCreate?
    With the release of Notch's creative mode, some features of uCreate have become obsolete. Some features like the insta-break blacklist are no longer available due to the way Notch's creative is coded. Go yell at Notch :)

    Version 2.1:
    • Implemented Notch's 1.8 creative mode
    • Scrapped obsolete features
    • Deleting your config and re-doing it is HIGHLY recommended, but not required.
    • Don't expect any more updates after this.
    Version 2.0.4:
    • Added /wool command
    • Added /clearinv command
    • Both commands have corresponding permissions and configs
    Version 2.0.3:
    • Added ucreate.admin permission. Currently just bypasses teleport requests.
    • Made the ItemInventory support up to 10 pages which are choosable by pressing number keys.
    • Implemented 2.0.2 config auto-updater.
    • Added SpoutInventory.yml file to configure the ItemInv. (Read more in the OP)
    Version 2.0.1:
    • Fixed Spout dependency
    • Fixed infinite item painting bug, thanks @Lathanael
    • Added config option "useSpout" under "spout"
    • Update your configs manually. AutoUpdate coming soon.
    • Improved startup efficiency
    • IF YOU HAVE 2.0 UPGRADE TO 2.0.1!
    uCreate 2.0:
    • Many many many features added.
    • Bug fixes (thanks @Lathanael for helping with the "wrong item bug") and for using Github the way it was meant to.
    uCreate 1.0-1.5:

    • Initial release
    • Awesome updates
    • uCreate stolen

    What about a separate inventory For those of us that want to run A Creative map along side a SMP map?
  5. Offline


    are you sure you uploaded the correct file? because mine still says that version 2.0 is loaded, and is spewing out quite some errors.
  6. Offline


    Yeah it says 2.0 but it's 2.0.1. I forgot to update the plugin.yml

    Check out MultiInv

    odd, since github's plugin.yml says 2.0.1 and the files seem to be slightly different in size.

    edit: replaced the files from the .jar with the ones from github, no more errors when starting up

    sorry if im unable to properly explain, sleepy here.
    just check the difference between the github and the .jar link you provided, they're different

    uCreate 2.0 is on it's way with a ucreate.admin permission node, as well as an improvement to the Spout item inventory, plus a few bug fixes.

    I am glad to see that you are keeping this alive and that you still have the heart to release your source code. I haven't tried this out yet, but it looks like you messed up a couple tags in your original post. You might want to fix those ;)

    Pretty cool plugin reduced the amount i need by loads!! Only one problem the fire still spreads i don't if it was because it came from lava - luckily it didn't actually do anything. My ideas would be - make a customisable item list because it took a while to get some of the names right - a bit like odd give. =]

    Using the Spout Item Inventory
    The item inventory, commonly referred to as "ItemInv" is a menu attached to your inventoy that allows you to drag any item right into your inventory. ItemInv requires Spout. (see above)
    To choose which page of items to view, press a number key on your keyboard (not the numpad)
    For server admins: To configure the ItemInv to your needs, edit the SpoutInventory.yml file. Here's an example that contains 5 menus:

    Just put the section name, then a list of item ids to be included in the inventory. To add data values for wools in such, put a colon then the data, i. e. 35:5

    Version 2.0.3:
    • Added ucreate.admin permission. Currently just bypasses teleport requests.
    • Made the ItemInventory support up to 10 pages which are choosable by pressing number keys.
    • Implemented 2.0.2 config auto-updater.
    • Added SpoutInventory.yml file to configure the ItemInv. (Read more in the OP)

    I've updated uCreate and Sprout today. My useSprout = true, and my itemInventory = true, but my inventory has remained unchanged. Both uCreate and Sprout were recognized by my server as being initialized, however, uCreate DOES initialize before Sprout, if that matters. I AM running permissions, but my permissions = true in the uCreate settings section.

    Am I missing something?

    Chances are you're not using the Spoutcraft launcher. Are you?
  16. Offline


    Nope, just the plugin. Chances are that's what's up. I'll go check it out. Thanks a lot!
  17. Offline


    No prob.
    Each user needs to use the Spoutcraft launcher, otherwise they can't use the Spout functions. It would be best to encourage your users to use Spoutcraft.
  18. Offline


    Thanks a lot for the help! I think I'm going to keep us on the standard launcher however, seeing as the upcoming Minecraft 1.8 update will throw all mods on their heads, and my players are happy with spawning anyway.

    I still really want to use you plugin though, it's one of my favorite creative plugins because it has an instant-break blacklist. However, there's just one setting that is irking me. I've now switched to spawning, which is working fine, however the defaultStackSize won't change off of 64, and I just think it would look a lot nicer if when a block was spawned it spawned only one block and regenerated only one block (regenerating one block IS working). Any suggestions?
  19. Offline


    Why not use it until 1.8? It's still pretty far off. Enjoy it while you can. :)
    Chances are Spoutcraft will be able to adapt fairly quickly too.
    And I'll check the code for stackSize issues.

    Hey, whaddya know! Turns out I was writing the defaultStackSize to the config, but I never actually read it back to the code! So because of that it was stuck on the default 64 :p
    I'll fix that in the next release, hehe.

    There just aren't enough reasons for me personally to use Sproutcraft (after consulting the list of plugins that use it).
    And thanks for checking out the stackSize

    oh sweet! good job on finding it!

    No problem.
    And that list isn't complete. Infact, even uCreate isn't on that list. There are a ton of plugins out there that use spout and aren't on that list.
  22. Offline


    Hm, you're right I didn't see uCreate. Well, if it's ever needed I know where to get it now.

    Btw, I'm finding plugins to fill in gaps that other creative plugins used to give me now that I'm switching to yours. I don't mean to complain, but maybe this could be helpful to you. The first two commands I missed were /wool, and /clear. I know that you're plugin relies more on the sprout inventory, but those are two really nice commands.
  23. Offline


    Very helpful suggestion, I'll get those in next release. And btw it's 'Spout' not 'Sprout' XD
    Next release won't be soon though because I'm going on a short vacation. I'll try and get it up on sunday.

    Check out this tutorial video for installing uCreate:

    ha ha you're right i have been calling it sprout. good luck on the edits, have a good trip.

    Good news, got it in tonight. :D

    Version 2.0.4:

    • Added /wool command
    • Added /clearinv command

    yes master man

    DUDE you are so cool!
    btw, i just realized my original request, being able to spawn just 1 block, is ridiculous anyway cause it limits how fast you can place blocks. but thanks for the /wool and /clearinv!
