    Kix's Prettier Explosions

    Lets face it; vanilla Minecraft explosions are anticlimactic and pretty lackluster. This plugin adds a pretty explosion visual to tnt, creepers, exploding beds, and more that launches the blocks away from the explosion and then smashes them to bits when the land. Drops remain the same and the explosions themselves are not modified




    Features
    • Plug and play; just drop the plugin into your server, no need to spend time configuring things if you don't want to

    • Ultra customizable; choose which types of explosions are affected, set a world whitelist/blacklist (or affect all worlds), and more

    • Mindful of lag; the plugins visuals will cap themselves to prevent fps and server lag with from big explosions

    • Respects protection plugins; the actual explosions remain up to your server to handle, the plugin just creates the pretty visuals. If another plugin blocks the explosion, KPE won't create any visuals

    Commands & Permissions

    • /prettierexplosions (pe): base command for the plugin, shows version
    • /pe reload: reload & update changes to the config file [permission: prettierexplosions.reload]

    Config

    Code (YAML):
    #
    # Prettier Explosions
    # Made with <3 by kixmc
    #
    # Some notes about the config:
    # - Be mindful adjusting the visual cap, high values can really lag some players on lower end pcs. Values above 1000 may take a toll on server performance, depending on your rig
    # - extra-visuals adds some additional visuals to explosions. Consider turning the option off when using increased visual caps to lessen fps lag
    # - realistic-trajectories calculates an accurate trajectory for each exploded block (uses a bit more resources), when set to false a random trajectory (in limits) will be used instead. The realistic and non realistic explosions vary in appearance, so feel free to play around with both
    # - Valid list-types are "whitelist" or "blacklist"
    # - Set the world list to "world-list: []" to have an empty list. Empty list = prettier explosions everywhere
