2.4.0 for Spigot 1.8.8-R0.1

January 21, 2016, download

  • Added more debug messages when the setting BetterEnderChest.showDebugMessages is set to true.
  • Added IllegalItems setting, that allows you to prevent players from inserting items with a certain id, name or lore (or a combination of those). The setting is documented here.

June 7, 2015, download

  • Fixed a bug when no database connection can be made.
  • Disabled UTF-8 support for existing installations, New installations can still turn it on manually.

  • Updated to be compatible with Spigot 1.8.4 (and Spigot 1.8.5). No longer compatible with Spigot 1.8.3 or earlier.

  • Ender Chests can now be unloaded when the chest is closed, but the owner is still online.
  • Default autosave interval has been set to 5 seconds. (Keep in mind that unchanged chests aren't saved.)
  • Removed the settings AutoSave.saveTickIntervalTicks and AutoSave.chestsPerSaveTick. Now that saving and loading does no longer pauses the server, these are no longer necessary.

March 7, 2015, download
  • Update to be compatible with Spigot 1.8.3. (Spigot 1.8.0 is no longer supported by this file, use 2.2.7.)

  • MySQL: improved JSON reading and writing to support some tags Forge mods added.
  • /bec give can now add NBT data to items, same format as vanilla Minecraft.
  • /bec give can now use Mojang material names too. (Bukkit material names are still supported.)

November 29, 2014, download.

Beta 2.0.6 for CraftBukkit 1.5.2-R1(June 28, 2013, download

  • It seems that a recent build of Multiverse-Inventories broke BetterEnderChest. This file should fix that. However, I couldn't reproduce the issue myself, I have just added some additional null checks. Please turn on showDebugMessages in the config.yml, so that you get notified when an inventory fails to load. Hopefully inventories only fail to load when there's actually no data to load, but I'm not sure of that.

  • Changed Ender Chest drops should now work correctly in all cases.

    • Fixed /enderchest command autocompletion.
    • /enderchest and /betterenderchest and /bec won't autocomplete itself anymore when the user doesn't have the required permission. Spigot users: those commands can(and should) now be removed from spam-exclusions in the bukkit.yml.
  • Added translation support for many messages and for the chest titles. If you want to use color codes, enclose the message in quotes and use the & char.
