    LyTreeHelper v2.5.1 - LyTreeHelper 3 is coming!

    LyTreeHelper is now on BukkitDev!

    I've started developing version 3 of LyTreeHelper.
    I will rewrite the whole project and add some really cool new features! :)

    If you're interested in helping me out developing this plugin, please contact me ;).

    You can find the new changes and the whole changelog for 3.0 on github (Link below).

    I've found back to the bukkit forum after a long stressful time and have read the many requests for an update of LyTreeHelper.
    So I decided to try to update (maybe rewrite?) LyTreeHelper, but I can't do it alone. I need some help.

    If you want to take part in the development process of LyTreeHelper, please let me know.
    If you have no programming knowledge, you can just make feature suggestions, just post them in this thread or create a ticket on Github.

    Thank you for your support, help and for using my plugin.

    Planned for LyTreeHelper 3:
    (Under Progress - Maybe 70 % done) - Rewrite the whole plugin
    (60 % Done) - Custom world populator (add custom trees saved in the MCEdit schematic format and insert them only in specific biomes, e.g. palms on beaches)
    (Done) - New simple and highly configurable configurations system
    (Done)- Enhanced permissions system (using Vault, same for economy)
    - Some more developers? :) I can't do it alone, because I've only a few hours in the evening to develop
    (Done) - Switch to Maven

    Download the latest version of LyTreeHelper from (02/06/2011 16:46 GMT +1)
    (Or this direct link)

    LyTreeHelper Features

    • Custom drop features - LyTreeHelper lets you add custom drops to leaves (Maybe, sticks? :) )
    • Full customizable drop system - Adjust the drop chances for each drop (apples, golden apples, leaves, saplings, ...)
    • Timed apple drops - Apples falling from trees? Yes, you can have this feature ;)
    • Easy to handle multiworld-support - Each world has it's own configuration file, which settings overrides the global settings, so you can setup LyTreeHelper for each world with your custom settings
    • Tree destruction - Cut that damn trees by destroying the ground connection
    • Powerful forest and tree generator - LyTreeHelper comes with a powerful great generator for forests and trees, you can generate every kind of tree or forest in minecraft
    • Full permission support - You can use each permission system which is supported by Vault (
    • Full economy support - You can use any economy system supported by Vault (, so let your members pay for destructing trees at one hit
    • Custom world populator - LyTreeHelper's powerful world populator uses MCEdit schematic files to populate your world(s) with custom trees, e.g. palms, only in specific biomes (e.g. palms on beaches)
    • Mob Spawn in trees after destruction - Harvesting whole trees by removing the ground connection is great, but too easy? Let creatures spawn inside the chopped tree

    Github repository:

    You can find the changelog on github, simply open CHANGELOG.txt.

    I have a problem with this. Sometimes when I chop down the ground block, it removes the whole tree and sometimes it doesn't :/
    What could be wrong?
  3. Offline


    This mod is ok but... Why do only 1 in 100 tree explode? I dont like the apples. All I want is to chop a tree down with one block chopped. None of the claiming plugins seem to hold up to what they say they do. Any idea whats going on? I get apples and junk. but rarely ever get the one chop tree to happen. All updated versions.bukkit and plugins. And configured properly.

    Im a plugin sorter thingy on a server, and the owner is saying that instead of just the wood falling when the bottom block is broken. The whole tree falls, leaves and everything. The config looks right to me and him, theres no explination though. Please, tell us what is wrong?

    # LyTreeHelper's configuration file
    # About editing this file:
    # - DO NOT USE TABS. You MUST use spaces or Bukkit will complain. If

    #   be changed in Settings > Preferences > Language Menu.
    # - Don't get rid of the indents. They are indented so some entries are
    #   in categories.

    Could you please update your plugin for RB 1000 or at least update your title to reflect the compatibility? Thanks.

    Is there any chance of McMMO support? We don't seem to be getting xp when using this plugin.

    I will apologize for my inactivity in the last weeks, I can't say why I was inactive... it's private sorry ;(

    But now I'm back, I will start to write on lyTreeHelper the next days and push the new update as soon as possible ;)

    Take your time with it, DarkLiKally, we love it and it is worth it to be done right :) Just want to say how much I love this plugin vs. some of the others that do the same thing out there in the past. Also want to ask if there are plans to include compatibility for PermissionsBukkit?
  11. Offline


    is there a way to make this full harvesting ignore adjacent sapling blocks? I can't harvest the trees in my farms because the low hanging leaves touch the ungrown saplings.

  12. Offline


    Yes, I will support PermisssionsBukkit and all other Economy Plugins ;).

    The checks to ignore large grass, saplings, mushrooms, ... are already in the source ;) It will be released in the next version, but if you know how to build LyTreeHelper by yourself, you can grab the source from github.
  13. Offline


    umm Is anything special needed to make trees drop there proper sapling?
    2 different server setup are not getting proper sapling drops 100% of the time

    I can do some more testing on the subject it you would like
  14. Offline


    Hm can you post your craftbukkit build and your configuration please? :)

    If the problem cannot be resolved, wait for the next version ;)
    I will rewrite LyTreeHelper (or the most parts of it) from scratch :).

    Hi guys :)

    I have a short question to you: How do you think about BO2 support? :) I plan to integrate BO2 into LyTreeHelper, so you can create custom trees with BBOB and include them into your worlds, and each new Chunk will be generated with that custom trees.

    If you have suggestions or wishes for this feature, please tell me :).

    Thank you

    Will this get updated for 1.8? This plugin is epic :)
  17. Offline


    Yes, I will update it.
    If a recommended build for 1.8.1 is out, I will begin to update it. Most parts of the new code are already done.
  18. Offline


    new recommended build is out but mine still works in may be able to improve it tho.

    If you set LyTree to spawn (eg) a spider from a tree at 100%, it'll spawn a spider for every log destroyed anywhere.

    The spawn event should only happen on treesplosion.

    I'm in the "pretty please bring mcmmo functionality in" fanclub. I switched to your plugin when my old one kept crashing my players. I love it a lot, it works smoothly most of the time. The only issues we have are if 2 trees are close enough that any leaves touch, the tree won't asplode, and that you get no xp for mcmmo.

    I can confirm this plugin is working with the latest dev build of CraftBukkit (1518). It wasn't working with some of the earlier builds, but if you're still getting errors with it, check that its not conflicting with another plugin.

    and i just checked the plugin by hitting some trees

    YES it's working

    but i only check my default map "world"
    creature spawn works as far as i can see

    This plugin appears to work correctly in 1718, however, if you break a leaf block in a WorldGuard region, apples can drop, but the leaf respawns. This makes it pretty trivial to farm infinite apples by standing in one spot.

    well is there a singleplayer virson of this ?
