    goldenNether - Obtain Nether blocks by using Gold Tools
    Version: 1.1

    I made this small plugin for a private server I play on, because we wanted Nether blocks without using hax (admin spawning them, Nether doesn't really work in SMP without changing the server properties, etc) and decided to release it for anyone that's interested.

    This plugin modifies the gold tools (since they aren't used that much AFAIK) to gain Nether blocks by destroying certain blocks found on Earth.

    • Makes gold tools somewhat useful.
    • Configure certain blocks to drop Nether blocks when destroyed with a gold tool.
    Config file template:
    Min_Glowstone_Dust: 4
    Max_Glowstone_Dust: 8
    Glowstone_1: 73
    Glowstone_2: 74
    Soulsand_1: 2
    Soulsand_2: 3
    Netherrack_1: 16
    Netherrack_2: 16
    Download goldenNether 1.1
    Source Code

    Version 1.1
    • Added the ability to configure the blocks yourself using config.yml.
    • It's also possible now to configure the amount of glowstone dust that drops upon block destroying.
    Version 1.0
    • goldenNether released.

    I really like the idea of this plugin, associating all golden things with the nether seems like a great system. It does kind of suck the gold hoe is left out though. If I may make a suggestion as to what I think would be ideal:

    Gold Pick: Netherrack when used on coal. (You have this already.)

    Gold Hoe: Tilling soil with this will get you glowstone.

    Gold Shovel: Digging sand with this will get you soulsand.

    And of course, if possible..

    Gold Sword: Throws Ghast fireballs, uses redstone powder as ammo.

    And then you can make wearing a full set of gold armor make you immune to fire/lava.

    Not sure about these two ideas.
    I think it would be nice to be able to change which blocks you have to mine and with which tool to produce a particular drop. That sentence is incredibly vague, but basically you could change dirt/grass to gravel for soulsand or change redstone to sand and the drop to only 1, etc...

    Looks pretty cool though.

    I do like the golden armor making you immune to heat effects, but I can see how ghast fireballs from the gold sword wouldn't be viable just yet. :p It's a cool idea for the future though, I mean, what else could the gold sword be used for?

    It would be cool to use it as a superpick for obsidian maybe, but that is way too easy. You would have to make it last a very short time.

    I like the idea of this very much. I shall have a play with it tonight.

    As someone who doesn't know much Java, I may have a look at modifying this later. Do you mind if I use your source code as a jumping in point?

    Found a giant stupid bug:
    When you destroy dirt with an iron shovel you get lots of glowstonedust -.-

    If you have these, then the axe is left out as you can't really get anything with an axe from the Nether, unless it has a chance of giving you a mushroom or the log.

    Gold boots: Set the ground on fire a second after you step on it.

    sooooo, golden nether doesn't work in craftbukkit [443]

    Any plans for an update? My players really enjoy this one.

    Sorry for the late reply.
    Are you sure you used an iron shovel? I remember getting a lot of glowstone dust when I destroyed dirt because I didn't use the properties file.

    I'll try to update it soon, glad to see players are liking my plugin. :cool:

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    Haha, I love that idea, you got me thinking about a whole slew of armor boosters now. Might have to crack open the ol' eclipse myself ;)

    *Edit: hehe, guess it's already being done by someone
