    Animal Plague


    For any survival server, it takes only a few days for the player to get comfy with their giant animal farms providing everything they need. As an admin myself I found this quite frustrating. Isn't there a way to keep player working hard even after they have made a few farms and animal pens? Animal Plague is the answer! The idea is to create a way to naturally limit the number of animals a player can have at once. This causes them to work harder because they don't have as many resources. As an added bonus, Animal Plague also helps control lag caused by oversized animal farms! Animal Plague can be configured in many different ways to create a plague with very different effects!

    • Limit the size of animal farms!
    • Make the game more challenging!
    • The Plague can spread!
    • Plague split into three configurable stages!
    • Configurable cure item!
    • Make Animal Flesh Decay!
    • Allow certain animals to be immune!

    you can change...
    • The time before the plague is first noticeable.
    • The time it takes to kill the infected animal.
    • The chance to infect other animals.
    • The radius that the plague can spread out from the infected animal.
    • A number of animals in an area before a plague will appear.
    • The chance of immune animals appearing.
    • The cure item for the plague.

    Future Changes

    • Set which animals can be infected. (Done)
    • Add a configurable cure item. (Done)
    • Add Immunity. (Done)
    • Allows players to experience plague effects by coming in contact with plague animals.
    • Allow animals to drop rotten flesh if they die from the plague. (Done)
    • More plague effects. (Done)
    • Whatever recommendations you have!

    This has been an excellent plugin, that has brough a lot to my server. It helps maintain lower flocks of animals, minimize lag from major animal farms, and introduce animal care as part of the game. I would truly appreciate seeing a 1.18 update for this plugin, as this is really integral to my server. I otherwise highly suggest it if you're running a 1.17 or earlier version of MC.

    This plugin is a must have for us! Players tend to create these giant farms and this is the only way I've found to limit their animal count and keep them from lagging the entire server. The plugin works great and is easy to configure. Works in 1.14.3.

    I just wonder why that I clicked the download for v2.1 of animal plague, when I started my 1.13.2 server, it only showed that I am using the version 2.0.

    I have been looking for something like this, for far too long. The idea and implementation is great. I would give it 5/5 but i am struggling to implement this with MultiVerse.

    I am very happy that the plugin can run on the 1.13 server, but I still like your 1.13 update because I need to add all passive creatures.

      Thanks! Right now, the plugin should be very stable for any version. If you have any ideas for the plugin or find anything wrong let me know and I'll get it fixed.
