    What is Safe Creeper
    Control creepers, Withers, EnderDragons, Enderman, TNT, Fireballs and a lot more!
    With Safe Creeper you can control creeper explosions and other things like, fireballs, TNT, Enderman and a lot of other things, you can set if a creeper explosions destroys blocks. You can set if Zombie's can break down doors. You can also set a lot of other things, the possibilities are almost endless! A few other examples are that you can set up if players are able to use TNT blocks, if creepers will explode above the surface and underneath they wont, set if Enderman can place and break blocks, even if they can clone blocks, explosion sounds, smoke effects and a lot of more things. The plugins is fully configurable and it has multi world support. This is a must have for most server administrators.

    Example Video

    Connections to the outside
    Safe Creeper does setup connections to the outside, to other servers than the server Safe Creeper is running on. In the current versions (v1.3.6 and above) Safe Creeper does connect to the following servers; The first connection Safe Creeper sets up is a connection to the update servers of Safe Creeper. This update server is a separated server hosted by timvisee.com (developer of Safe Creeper). The connections to the update servers are made on each start up, and each hour while the plugin is running. These connections can be disabled inside the config file of Safe Creeper underneath the node 'updateChecker'. Because of the update checker and the auto updater Safe Creeper does also setup a connection to dev.bukkit.org to download the newest plugin versions. Other connections are made to the servers of mcstats.org, this is a service Safe Creeper uses to add live statics, like the amount of servers running Safe Creeper, these statics are fully anonymous. Connections to mcstats.org and live statics usage can be disabled inside the Safe Creeper configuration file.

  2. Yet another creeper nerf :/
     
  3. I make this for my spawn world, where the players can't build, it's no fun if there's a creeper that destroy the world. :)
    (I like creepers ;))

    Creepers only damage players but not the terrain?
    http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/mech-anticreeper-v0-1-creepers-only-damage-players-953.20331/

    Upcoming features? The damage gets rebuilt? What's the point of having the damage if it just gets repaired..? I'm not sure but this exists as well:
    http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/me...reepers-tnt-and-fire-after-a-while-935.22476/

    WorldGuard support on the way?
    You do realize WorldGuard has a built-in feature for nerfing creepers?


    Not trying to bash your plugin. I'm sure it's fine.
    It's just we already have all this.
     
  5. I know CreeperHeal was already there, but that doen't work as I want too so I divised to make my own plugin. I made this one in 10 minutes and it's not finished yet!

    Is there a plugin to disable creeper explosions above a certain level? I would like creepers to not explode on the surface while still allowing blocks below ground to be damaged by explosions.
     
  9. I can make that if you want to. But currently it's a very basic plugin, I work 10 minutes on it :p. If you want tell me I will make that function for you
     
  10. This is a great idea, I saw the plugin that does this with TNT, but it would be great if @Tim Visee merges it with this one. +1
    And looking forward to the self-repairing update (CreeperHeal its a bit confusing)
     
  11. Oke, Im going to add this function. Im currently finishing my new version of the Glowstone Lanterns plugin (The new version support command lines in the files, more permissions and probably the lanterns will change into glowstone when its raining, also added config.yml file) When I done that I will create this function! Btw, I dont know how long it takes, but I think not too long, tomorrow (for me already today in the netherlands) I will update this plugin I think

    Great! Also I think maybe make it so that only creepers below (threshold - creeper blast radius) explode, that way if the safe level is 50, then creepers can't explode at 49 and damage blocks above 50, if you see what I'm saying.
     
  13. Yes, I understand, that's a little hard but I'm going to try it :)
     
  14. Sorry, I got some trouble with another project... I will update the plugin as soon as I can! (take not too long!)

    I'm using BlastControl right now, but it hasn't been updated since 818, and my players want to use TNT occassionally. Any plans on separating creeper & TNT damage?
     
  18. Somming soon, but Im working hard on a few things, a Wolrd Generator called Dungeon Maze (Comming out soon, best plugin ever :D) so I will add this feature as soon as possible!

    hey have been divorced, as you can see the config.yml

    Some people may say this is "yet another creeper nerf," but it scratches my itch perfectly - player damage and smoke remain for all three types of explosions, and yet the landscape doesn't get torn up. Bravo!

  23. now this plugin is perfect, thanks!

    EDIT:
    it doesn't work for me, i use cb 1000 and here's my config:

    world.yml (open)

    # This is the global settings for all the worlds, if a world have his own settings file it will overwrite these settings for the world.

    # Creepers
    CreeperControl:
    Enabled: true
    DestroyWorld: false
    EnableExplosionSound: true
    EnableExplosionSmoke: true
    PowerdByLightning: true
    # Only enable these settings if you are between two levels (you must enable 'EnableBetweenLevels' to use it).
    EnableBetweenLevels:
    Enabled: true
    MinLevel: 0
    MaxLevel: 50

    # Fireballs (from ghasts)
    FireballControl:
    Enabled: true
    DestroyWorld: false
    EnableExplosionSound: true
    EnableExplosionSmoke: true
    # Only enable these settings if you are between two levels (you must enable 'EnableBetweenLevels' to use it).
    EnableBetweenLevels:
    Enabled: false
    MinLevel: 0
    MaxLevel: 127

    # TNT blocks
    TNTControl:
    Enabled: true
    DestroyWorld: false
    EnableExplosionSound: true
    EnableExplosionSmoke: true
    CanPlaceTNT: true
    # Only enable these settings if you are between two levels (you must enable 'EnableBetweenLevels' to use it).
    EnableBetweenLevels:
    Enabled: false
    MinLevel: 0
    MaxLevel: 50

     
  24. There's a global file, in the folder Safe Creeper, you can set the default settings in there, for all the worlds, if you have a world where you want some diferent settings you need to create a file with the name of the world inside the Safe Creeper/worlds file, I suggest to copy the example.yml file and rename that one. You can set things in here for that world, for example, if Enabled, under the TNTControl is true and it was already true, you can remove that line. I hope you understand, if you have a line with the same value as the global file you can remove that line, (only in the world files, not in the global.yml file). You send your config file for the world called world.yml and I see that you have no spaces before most of the lines where they are needed, so of course this doesn't work, you must have that spaces! So your config file must look like this.
    world.yml (open)

    Code:
    # This is the global settings for all the worlds, if a world have his own settings file it will overwrite these settings for the world.
    
    # Creepers
    CreeperControl:
         Enabled: true
         DestroyWorld: false
         EnableExplosionSound: true
         EnableExplosionSmoke: true
         PowerdByLightning: true
         # Only enable these settings if you are between two levels (you must enable 'EnableBetweenLevels' to use it).
         EnableBetweenLevels:
             Enabled: true
             MinLevel: 0
             MaxLevel: 50
    
    # Fireballs (from ghasts)
    FireballControl:
         Enabled: true
         DestroyWorld: false
         EnableExplosionSound: true
         EnableExplosionSmoke: true
         # Only enable these settings if you are between two levels (you must enable 'EnableBetweenLevels' to use it).
         EnableBetweenLevels:
             Enabled: false
             MinLevel: 0
             MaxLevel: 127
    
    # TNT blocks
    TNTControl:
    Enabled: true
         DestroyWorld: false
         EnableExplosionSound: true
         EnableExplosionSmoke: true
         CanPlaceTNT: true
         # Only enable these settings if you are between two levels (you must enable 'EnableBetweenLevels' to use it).
         EnableBetweenLevels:
             Enabled: false
             MinLevel: 0
             MaxLevel: 50
    You may already did it and bukkit removed the spaces, that's possible, another thing is that you set the MinLevel to 0 and the MaxLevel to 50 (and you enabled these things) that means that if youre settings are enabled with and you enabled those min and max level things that if the creeper explode underneeth or above those levels that they explode as they normally did (they didn't use your settings) if they explode between the Min and the MaxLevel, like 0 to 50 they will use your settings and don't explode, so I think you need to change MinLevel:0 and MaxLevel:50 to MinLevel:50 to MaxLevel:127. The same with the TNT and maybe also the fireballs from ghasts.
    I really hope you understand the whole message, because it's hard to explain for me because I'm dutch and 14 years old.

  25. lol i'm dutch too and only 1 year older :)

    but for the min and the max level, i thought it was the other way round :)
    and bukkit removed the spaces. and i already did the global etc stuff :)
    and "Enabled: true" (first time) means your plugin is looking at it right?
     
  26. Great :D
    I understand that you thought it was the way around, but it's hard to explain. So is it fixed? :)

    Awesome, thanks for the multiword support. While I was reading the new updates, I thought of something. Do you think it would be possible to completely prevent creepers from spawning on the surface, but still allow them to spawn in unlit caves?
     
  28. Ahm, Yes of course, give me a moment for the next update ;)

    I get this when running with Regios: [​IMG]
     
  30. Yes, that's a real problem, I looked in the error and probably the problem is that when there's a explosion, Safe Creeper will create another explosion (with no damage) to get the sound, to try it another time with no explosion sounds and no explosion smoke effects (optional in the config for the world/global)
