    Ever wanted to have a pet that helps you?
    Do your player asks you for a different pet plugin?

    Well, I created this plugin because of that.

    This plugin was created to add something that is missing in minecraft, pets.
    And yes, this plugin was inspired in the well-known mod that allow having pets in inventories.

    But what makes this plugin different from others???
    First, it works in many versions 1.8.8 - 1.16.4 and second, it's almost fully configurable.

    And second, you can change displaynames, lores, pet recipes, permissions, messages, textures, foods, cooldowns, etc..
    I'll probably be adding more pets when users make suggestions.

    Making a suggestion doesn't mean it will be added. I need to consider the impact of that pet in server performance and stuff like that.

    Note: If you think your pet suggestion is good. Let me know in my discord.

    None yet. You can send me your reviews :D

    This is a simple plugin, i don't think it requires more features.
    However if you consider your suggestion should be added, let me know in discussion tab.

    Let us know if your server is using it! ;)

    1) Why is this BETA? That means it has bugs?
    No, plugin should not have bugs. I use BETA because I like the word, I guess.

    2) Can I create my own pet?
    No. However, if your pet suggestion sounds good to me. I might add it in a future update.

    3) How can I limit active pets amount?
    Edit in config.yml the option "Options.Max-pets". (Min 1, max 9)

    4) Can you add XYZ pet?
    Make your suggestion on our Github and be patient. It takes time.
    Making a pet suggestion does NOT mean it will be added. I need to see if pet ability is balanced, compatibility, performance, etc.

    5) Can you make it so we create our own pets?
    No. Due to the plugin structure, I can add more pets, but making a system that allows you to create custom pets should probably require recoding the system.

    6) Will you do it in a future?
    I don't know to be honest. I'm already thinking about how that system would work, but I currently have more projects (plugins) I wanna release first. Probably later if I figure out a way to allow server owners to create new pets.

    7) Can i post this in mcbbs.net?

    8) Are you sure?
    Yes, I'm sure. You are not allowed to post it.

    9) Help me, it's not working in my server!
    Before reviewing the resource. Make sure you have installed all dependencies.
    It the error persists. Paste startup console log in https://sourceb.in/ and post it in discussion tab or join my server.

    Muy bueno tu plugin, la verdad me gusto. Pero, uan pregunta.
    ¿Cómo hago para crear un pet propio?, ¿o eso no se puede?. Es qué quería hacer un pet el cual, al morir, no pierdas nada. Por favor, si se puede, ¿podrías contactarme a mi Discord? Jere#0814

      Me alegro que te guste!
      No puedes crear pets con este plugin, el sistema solo fue hecho para ser agregados por el dev. Actualmente (estas semanas) estoy ocupado con la universidad y no tengo tiempo para hacer modificaciones, cuando todo termine intentaré ver si es posible ;)

      Gracias por tu review!
