    GiveIt - A "give" item plugin with more control [1240]
    Version: 1.3

    The idea behind this plugin is to allow players to use a special command called "/giveme" which can be controlled.

    By controlled, I mean that the server admin can only allow certain items with a max amount to be given. That way, you won't have players building giant gold structures unless you'd like them to ;)

    You can also restrict an item to a single player for those extra special projects.

    Players are able to see what items are available ingame.

    Players that are added to the mods.txt file, will have the ability to add and remove items from the allowed.txt file ingame.

    They will also have the ability to give other players items.

    The usernames of players that are listed in the blocked.txt file will not be able to use the /giveme command.

    I've been using GiveIt for a while on my server to see how well it worked and so far it's been working quite well so I've decided to release it and share the source code.

    This is my first plugin for CraftBukkit so do go easy on me :p

    • Only allow specified items to be "given"
    • Restrict the amount that can be "given"
    • Restrict the giving of certain items to a single player
    • Full logging of every item requested by every player
    • Players can see what items are allowed ingame
    • Mods can add or remove items from the allowed list ingame
    • Certain players can be blocked from using the /giveme command
    • ItemId's don't need to be in the 3 digit format ie. 75 will work instead of 075
    • Support for Permissions plugin v2.5 (Permissions plugin is optional)




    Download GiveIt v1.3 Plugin
    Source Code

    Installation Instructions:
    1. Download GiveIt using the link above and place it in your plugins folder
    2. Enable GiveIt by starting your server
    3. GiveIt will automatically create a directory called GiveIt in your plugins folder
    4. In the GiveIt folder there should be a file called allowed.txt
    5. Add a new item to the allowed.txt file by following this:
      1. ItemID=MaxAmount.username
      2. eg. 278=01.cian1500ww
      3. This command allows cian1500ww to give themselves one diamond pickaxe
      4. eg. 278=01
      5. This command allows any player to give themselves one diamond pickaxe
    6. Make sure that you only add one item per line.
    7. The plugin does NOT need to be reloaded after adding items to the allowed.txt file.
    8. Add the usernames of the players to mods.txt that you'd like to have access to the /givemeadd and /givemeremove commands. (Only if you are not using Permissions)
    9. Add the usernames of the players to blocked.txt that you would like to stop from using /giveme. (Only if you are not using Permissions)
    10. Reload the plugin after adding usernames to mods.txt or blocked.txt
    11. A log file called GiveIt.log will be created in the GiveIt folder after the plugins first use.
    Sample allowed.txt file:

    Usage Instructions:

    A player can give themselves an item by using the following command:

    /giveme <itemid> <amount> <durability>
    /giveme 052 1
    Note: In version 1.3+, it's possible to /giveme and /giveto items with durability

    An important point to remember is that the item id must always be 3 digits so item 40 will be 040.No longer an issue in V1.2 :)

    If the player requests an item that isn't allowed, they will be notified. Also, if they request too many of one item, they will be asked to choose a lower amount.

    Players can see what items are available by using the following command:
    Players that are specified in the mods.txt file, can add items to the allowed.txt file with the following command:
    /givemeadd <itemid> <quantiy> <username if required>
    /givemeadd 278 30 cian1500ww
    Example without username:
    /givemeadd 278 30
    They can also remove items from the file using this command:
    /givemeremove <itemid>
    /givemeremove 50
    The /giveto command allows players listed in the mods.txt file to give items in allowed.txt to other players. The command is as follows:
    /giveto <playername> <item> <amount> <durability>
    /giveto cian1500ww 35 10 2
    Permissions Plugin Instructions:

    Add the following permission to the groups or users that you'd like to have access to the "/giveme" command:

    All users will still have access to the "/givemeinfo" command.

    Add the following permission to the groups or users that you'd like to have access to the "/givemeadd" and "/givemeremove" command:
    To give users access to the "/giveto" command:
    If you are using Permissions, the mods.txt and blocked.txt files will not be used but will still be generated.

    Version 1.3:
    • Added support for CraftBukkit build 617
    • Added the /giveto command

    permission support would be nice, and I would need that older version for now as I'm running 198.
  3. Offline


    I'll have permission support with 1.1

    I'll upload the older version for builds up to 199 but I won't be upgrading it further so it won't have permission support.

    cool, totally understandable.. I'm waiting for craftbook to update the server as it works atm and bukkit needs to have aliases figured out before I want to make any changes without it.

    Updated the original post with the link to the version that supports CraftBukkit builds up to 200.

    Also added some screenshots.

    I plan to have support for permissions in version 1.1 which I hope to have ready within a week. Any other requests or problems, let me know.

    Good idea for a plugin, I was just in a situation yesterday where I wanted something like this for my moderators!
  7. Offline


    Thanks!! I got the idea from my own server, lots of people like to build special projects which require large amounts of items that would normally take too long to gather and special projects always help create a unique server :D

    Updated the plugin to version 1.1 with support for the Permissions Plugin as requested ;)

    Any more ideas or requests, let me know!!

    Hey, Im making a server for some friends, youy should release a list of all the items being allowed.
  9. Offline


    I think you may have misunderstood how the plugin works, at default setting ie. empty allowed.txt file, there are no items available. Only items that you add to the allowed.txt file will become available.
    Players can see what items are available ingame using the /givemeinfo command.
    Feel free to post any more questions!!

    can u give me an example of whuts supposed to be in the allowed.txt file?
  11. Offline


    could u make it so that u could spawn everything or just make a .txt download and put all of the ids in it
  12. Offline


    Put each item that you'd like to allow on a new line so to add 1 diamond pickaxe to the allowed file, add the following line:
    So the format is itemid=amount

    Sure, I'll definitely look into that.

    Here is a suggestion: In a future update allow 1 instead of 001. Wouldn't it be easy to check if it was 3 digits, and if not it will just add 1-2 0's and then execute?

    I'll have to have a think about that, it's something that the plugin really needs but it's a bit of a head scratcher!!

    My bad. I recently updated to latest CraftBukkit and forgot to pull down new version. Working like a charm. :D

    The Permissions permissions don't work for me for Craftbukkit build 325, and neither does the regular system of ID=AMOUNT.PLAYER

    The proper group has giveit.allow, and a player in that group is also listed like so: 001=1.PlayerName, but neither are working.

    Any ideas?

    When you start the server, do you see the line "GiveIt: Permissions support enabled" in the console ??
    If that line isn't showing then it's not detecting the Permissions plugin.
  21. Offline


    It worked after the server was restarted, but unless I'm misunderstanding the allowed.txt format, then only 1 stack can be spawned at a time (64), even if that item has a higher value (currently 192 on most of the items)

    Hi there, I like your plugin but I have three suggestions for you:

    1) Allow the command to be used without padding to 3 digits (example, /giveme 1 50)

    2) Allow the command to give more than 99 of any item (example, /giveme 1 1024)

    3) Most item mods also allow you to specify a name instead of the item ID. This would be nice as well. (example, /giveme stone 512)

    Thanks :)

    1 and 2 will be implement in version 1.2

    I'll look into point number 3

    Thanks for the suggestions :)

    Just posting an update to let you know that I'm still working on 1.2 and I hope to have it ready by early next week. It'll be supporting CraftBukkit builds 400+.

    ok, great plugin:) one request:
    could u add a timer function so that the amount will reset itself after a specific period? for example that one player could use 30dirt every day? and the time should be counted in running server time or online time of that player...

    Leave it with me and I'll see what I can do :D

    Is this plugin supported with the latest recommended build? I think it's 492? or around there.
