    Appleseed is now on dev.bukkit.org! Go there for the latest versions, a dedicated support forum, and ticket tracking system: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/appleseed/


    Appleseed - Plant trees that drop apples on the ground (or other items!):
    There are other plugins out there that make trees drop apples/items when you break the leaves, but this plugin doesn't do that. With Appleseed, all existing trees are left as-is. To get an apple tree, you must use a hoe to create soil, then right click the soil with an apple in hand. Done correctly(and if you have permission), a sapling will appear in the soil. When the sapling grows(use bonemeal to speed this up), the tree will drop apples on the ground.

    Features:
    • Plant items in soil(aka farmland) and grow a tree that drops that item on the ground
    • Config file that controls allowed types of trees, item drop interval, and likelihood
    • Permissions to control who can plant trees(and what type)
    Download Appleseed: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/appleseed/

    Fertilizer: If trees have the setting "RequireFertilizer" set to "Yes", then they will stop dropping items and require bonemeal as fertilizer to continue. To fertilize a tree, hold bonemeal in your hand and right-click on the very bottom block of the trunk. Fertilizing more than once doesn't hurt, neither will fertilizing while a tree is still dropping items.

    Signs: If a player has permission, they can place a sign on a planted tree that reads "[Appleseed]". The sign will show the type of tree it is, and the color of the text will indicate it's status. If the text is light blue, the tree is an "infinite" tree and will never require fertilizer. If the text is green, then the tree is healthy and dropping items. If the text is red, then the tree requires fertilizer before it will continue dropping items.

    Config File: Remember, the config file is a YAML file, so the indentation is significant.
    • DropInterval: This determines how often items might drop. The default is 60 seconds; any value lower than this might cause lag.
    • FertilizerItem: Item used to fertilize a tree. Defaults to bone meal.
    • MaxUncollectedItems: Optional, approximate maximum number of items that can sit uncollected under a tree
    • MaxTreesPerPlayer: Optional cap on number of trees a player can plant.
    • MaxIsPerWorld: Optional, if MaxTreesPerPlayer is defined, this allows the max to be either per world or server-wide.
    • WandItem: Right click a tree with this item in hand to see its type and fertilizer status.
    • MinimumTreeDistance: Optional, minimum distance between trees.
    • TreeTypes: This section defines the allowed types of trees that can be planted. The following values must be set for each tree type:
      • DropLikelihood: The chance of a drop happening each interval. Can be set from 0-100, where 100 is always drop and 1 is one chance in a hundred intervals. Fractional values now permitted.
      • RequireFertilizer: If set to Yes, the trees of this type will stop dropping items and require bonemeal to continue (if you set this to yes, either DropsBeforeFertilizer or IntervalsBeforeFertilizer must also be set).
      • DropsBeforeFertilizer: Sets the approximate number of drops before the tree gets tired and requires fertilizer (this option cannot be combined with IntervalsBeforeFertilizer).
      • IntervalsBeforeFertilizer: Sets the approximate number of time intervals before the tree gets tired and requires fertilizer (this option cannot be combined with DropsBeforeFertilizer).
      • TreeType: Defines the type of tree that will grow from the sapling. Can be "Standard", "Spruce", or "Birch".
      • MaxFertilizer: Optional, approximate number of times a tree can be fertilized. After the maximum is reached, the tree dies (trunk disappears and the leaves decay).
    Permissions: If you don't have a permissions plugin, then only Ops will be able to plant trees.
    • appleseed.plant.*: This will allow the planting of any item in the AllowedTreeTypes list.
    • appleseed.plant.apple: This only allows the planting of an "apple".
    • appleseed.infinite.plant: Trees planted by a player with this permission will never stop dropping items.
    • appleseed.infinite.fertilizer: Trees fertilized by a player with this permission will never need fertilizer again.
    • appleseed.infinite.cap: This allows a player to plant more than the defined MaxTreesPerPlayer.
    • appleseed.wand: Players can right-click a tree with a wand item(defaults to wooden hoe) to get type of tree and fertilizer status.
    • appleseed.sign.place: Player has permission to place an [Appleseed] sign on a tree.

    This is an awesome plugin. Great job, i will be installing today. Also, for future requests, is there anyway you could make iConomy support, and let saplings grow on soil to make apple trees too? Just an idea, not sure if its even possible.

    With iConomy, are you suggesting that it should cost money to plant the tree? I can't track when users pick up items dropped by the trees.
    Also, can you explain further what you are asking about saplings in soil? Do you mean without using an apple to plant?

    Jumla

    Well, the iConomy might be over the top. But in my idea you would pay iConomy money to plant the tree, so somebody could make a tree farm, and sell apples, it would be an investment. I meant to place a sapling in soil, and it grows an apple tree. Just a suggestion, the plugin is great the way it is.

    If you could add iConomy support to make a money tree, I would download this.

    This is a wonderful addition. I love the farming/tilled soil step, it adds more depth than just making leaves randomly drop apples. I'll use this with apples and cocoa beans (rather than cookies). Looks great, keep it simple like this and I'll use it forever. =)

    lol a money tree, that would be EPIC :cool:

    Does iConomy use an in game item as currency? If so the money tree would be possible :D

    No, unfortunately...
    Interesting idea, although I encourage users to mine trees :) I may still add this, though.

    Now that I think about it, why not replace the default cookie setting with cocoa bean? It makes a little more sense and isn't so immersion-breaking. :)

    This looks WAY cooler than the plugin I have that drops apples from leaves. Good job!

    The apples that drop from my trees give LOTS of apples when you pick them up, and you can to right click for a while before the apple stack in your inventory gets a number on it. :/

    Woah that's weird. Could be a bug, I'll take a look.

    UPDATE: I couldn't reproduce this behavior on my test server, but I went ahead and released version 0.2 that specifically sets the quantity to one when an item is dropped.

    I can confirm that last night the apples being dropped from trees were infinite (-1 value) use.

    Cool idea!

    But to make it really great, there would need to be some form of work required to keep this going. I'd like to use this, but in the current mechanic, this will end up with players making a tree farm of 500x500, and walk around all day picking up apples and likely killing the server.

    Something like, chance for all the leaves to die, or after x MC days, all the leaves die, killing the apple dropping process. Then the player needs to chop down the remaining logs, and plant a new tree.

    Would be great!

    ===
    Edit:

    If that is too complex, or impossible, or an issue for performance, a simple solution could be a config variable that specifies how many times a Tree can drop something, after which it stops working. Then people just need to monitor what happens, and replant a tree when they suspect it has "died" !

    If you can detect the end of a storm, I'd suggest making an option for drops only to appear after a rain.

    @walruscode and @Shaegar: does version 0.2 fix the infinite drops problem for you? Also, what CraftBukkit build are you running?

    @Joy: I had a couple thoughts about how to limit the size of tree farms. What do you think about a configurable maximum number of trees per player, or max per chunk? A chunk is 16x16 blocks, so a limit of 1 or 2 per chunk would keep the tree density way down. There could be a permission node that would allow overriding the maximums, as well.


    UPDATE: After considering it, I think I'll make it so that trees will occasionally require fertilizer in the form of bonemeal. That way the trees wouldn't have to be cut down and replanted, but they would require tending. This would be configurable, of course, and probably disabled by default. Also there would be a permission node that would enable admins to plant trees that don't get tired.

    A money tree would be easy to make, have the tree drop gold bars then setup an iConomy chest shop (admin shop) set to buy gold bars not sell them and voila instant'ish cash.

    Fantastic. I love it. Screw the iconomy to plant, you can just sell the apples. And if you get a lot of gold, golden apples.

    0.2 seems to fix all the problems I've been running into. I also had a problem with pumpkin trees dropping glitchy pumpkins that couldn't be paced, but that seems to have also stopped. Thanks!

    It wont work for me to create a tree: i right clik with a cookie in my hand and it eat it (yes i use a hoe) i'm using revision 766. any help? :(

    redsgreens

    Are you sure you have permissions set so you can plant a tree? If you use "appleseed.plant.*" you will definitely have permission. Also, is cookie in your list of allowed tree types(in the config file). The defaults are apple and cocoa beans.

    Fantastic plugin. Much more intuitive and pretty than knocking down apple trees just to get apples. But yeah, similar problem here with getting too many apples. The drop rates seem to work perfectly, but without any limitation on dropped apples, the effect is still to drop way way too many. And setting the drop frequency very low is not a nice solution. Limitation on number of trees is one thing, but the number of apples dropped per tree is another.

    My suggestion would be to set some kind of hard limit on how many apples any given tree can have dropped, and uncollected. For instance, stopping trees from dropping additional apples once there are already four apples on the ground near the tree. This would also make it less pointless to plant trees very close together (say 5 by 5 area detection per tree.

    Also, separate drop frequencies (and specific tree types) for different items would be handy.. ^_^
