    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.

    Hey I used world edit to make a large wood wall around a small outpost in a forest and I used to plugin and I guess someone chopped 1 log of the wall and everything exploded and caused the server to crash because of the massive amounts of wood items laying around.
  3. Offline


    That's probably because you made a large wood wall and someone chopped 1 log of the wall and everything exploded.
    You can use /ct p to disable the plugin in certain chunks and /ct f to disable chopping wood in that chunk completely.

    I thought this only worked with trees not everything made of wood. in fact you say it only works on trees houses made of logs are safe.

    There will be a ChopTree.players file which saves player toggles and a ChopTree.chunks file which saves protected chunks.

    that thing isnt happening for me. i cant save the chunks i want so everytime i start my server my treehouse is in danger.
    using 1.23 and b818.
    also, there's no command for manually saving chunks?
  6. Offline


    The tree finding algorithm can only check for leaves, if there are leaves on top of your logs then it's recognised as a tree.

    Are you stopping your server with the "stop" command?
    The plugin saves chunks when it is being disabled, you can manually save them by doing /reload (not /ct reload, just /reload).
    If there is an error saving chunks then it'll say so in your server log. Does it after reloading?

    hey, does the bug is fixed alredy? the one that you cut one log and that zone crashes? it works fine until i put mcmmo, are you checking that out?
  8. Offline


    I am going to check on it if I find enough time to do it :p
  9. Offline


    no, or that depends what you mean. do you mean when i quit? if so then all i do is save-all and then press down the command window.
    but doesnt reload just reload the chunks from the "saved" state? and since i dont have a saved state it will only go back to unprotected?
    idk what the server log will do for you because it doesnt say anything when i protect the logs
  10. Offline



    You have to stop your server with "stop", then it'll run the save script.
    You shouldn't just close the window, that doesn't end the plugins with their disabling script :p

    lols, didnt read all of it :p

    tha d0ctor

    will this plugin remove the leaves at any point?
  13. Offline


    Probably gonna add that, shouldn't be all that difficult.
    But first I need some time to fix that client crashing error.

    crash error when chop trees....

    good to know, I haven't had any crashes yet so hopefully it isn't too hard of a fix for your sake!

    this plugin causes the levelcraft of woodcutting to not work properly. even if you only chop one wood you dont get any xp for it.
    maybe not a huge priority, but a good thing to look over
  17. Offline


    I know, but the mcMMO support is already not quite working right now so I won't add that yet :p

    This plugin since CB 820 prevents the Autoplant plugin from planting a sapling when you cut down the tree.
    Using the new v3 permissions.
  19. Offline


    I can't fix that, it's either mcMMO support or Autoplant support.
  20. Offline


    It doesn't work together with mcMMO plugin - it crashes
  21. Offline


    That was already established earlier, no need to make a huge font.
  22. Offline


    I have these plugins in my server : Essentials, Eternal-wolf, FishPeople, IceDrop, LWC, mcMMO, MyHome, SaddleBack, speedsign, Superheat, ToolNotifier, WeatherPlugin.
    And so i chopped down few trees ( like 2 or 3) and game crashed. Everyone who goes to that place crashes the game.
    Now i used WorldEdit to take that area out and it works now. PLEASE FIX THIS :)
  23. Offline


    I already said things about that, just read what it says.
    And please edit your posts so they don't have HUGE writing, it just totally looks out of place and repelling

    Ye ppl was talking about it a lot, but i'm not using worldguard as most of them. Is there a know fix for my issue?

    So i just tried some different plugins, and when i tried mcMMO and choptree the light blue screen apeared :(

    I have to fix it but it takes time I don't have right now.

    Is this not working with permissions 2.7?
  27. Offline


    <---not running WorldGuard
    <---Having the crash screen issue.

    plz post an appropriate warning. it is clearly not a conflict issue, but an issue within the mod itself as there doesnt seem to be a pattern between mods and players having this issue.

    on another note, hope it gets fixed soon. like this mod a lot.

    EDIT/NOTE: I have noticed a pattern with the crash.... It seems to happen when you collect a log before it has "settled". I have found that hitting the tree and backing away to avoid collecting the wood until the logs have all stopped moving prevents the crash. Hopefully this will help you find a solution to the issue.

    For me it's crashing with mcMMO

    From what my members are saying, it seems like the new recommended build is running it smoothly now.
    I have been told by a couple people that since I updated it, they have not crashed out. (mind you I have not done any testing myself yet)

    is there a option let me slow down the speed of chopping?
