At the moment, im trying to have a hard-dependency on SimpleClans. Im using a completely empty plugin that does nothing. Except that in the plugin.yml, it has depend: [SimpleClans] I receive UnknownDependencyException: SimpleClans If you goto the plugin.yml of SimpleClans, it has name: SimpleClans, and the JAR is also named SimpleClans.jar So if bukkit is not looking for either of those cases, what is it looking for or what the hell is going on? http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/simpleclans/ If I change the filename of my empty plugin to zzzwhatever, it loads fine, because it loads AFTER SimpleClans does. Apparently the logic that its supposed to skip over hard dependencies if theyre not loaded and come back later isnt working properly? The tricky thing though, is that I have a similar do nothing plugin for towny, and yet it works fine and temporarily skips over the hard depend letting towny load.
