    If you have a problem with this plugin, please contact me either via PM, Discord, or the discussion section before / instead of leaving a review first! Not (only) because I don't like bad reviews for things I can and will fix/add quickly, but primarily because it is simply much easier to communicate via any one of those ways than via the review section!

    This is a very simple plugin that allows you to combine an elytra with a diamond chest plate in an anvil.


    The result will be an armored elytra.
    Armored elytras offer the same amount of protection as a diamond chest plate and they can have the same enchantments as well. This means that you can add protection, fire protection etc to the armored elytra as well.

    List of features:
    • Combine an elytra with any type of chest plate armor to create an armored elytra! It will have the same amount of armor as the type of armor it was combined with!
    • Supports enchantments.
    • Configurable list of allowed enchantments (and curses).
    • Configurable repair cost.
    • Permissions for giving / wearing / crafting different tiers of armored elytras.
    • Add enchantments using enchanted books.
    • Receive notification when the plugin is out-of-date.
    • Permissions support.
    • Configurable messages, elytra names and elytra lores.
    • Uninstaller for when you no longer want to use this plugin.

    I am always looking to improve upon this plugin, so if you have any tips, ideas or requests, let me know! I'll be happy to help!

    NOTE: Armored elytras will remain in the world even after uninstalling this plugin, please use the uninstall feature if you want to uninstall this plugin.
    NOTE2: By default, this plugin checks if there are any updates available. If the version you are using is found to be outdated, you will receive a message in the console (and upon logging in if you have the armoredelytra.admin permission node). The update checking can be disabled in the config file.

    If you encounter a bug or a problem, please contact me first before leaving a review, then I'll try my hardest to fix it as soon as possible.

    If you like this plugin, please don't forget to let me know in the review section, it really does help me keep motivated to provide support for this plugin!

    ToDo List:
    • Add support for custom enchantment plugins.
    • Any suggestions?

    Known Issues:
    • When putting an item in the second anvil slot first and then in the first slot, the name of the result will appear incorrectly. The name is fixed when taking the result out of the anvil slot.
    • Crafting Armored Elytras of the chain tier results in a golden Armored Elytra.


    Allows you to wear armored elytras of a specific tier.


    Allows you to craft armored elytras of a specific tier.

    /ArmoredElytra [receiver] <tier>
    Allows you to give armored elytras of a specific tier. Will be given to the player that issued the command if no target is specified.

    With this node you will receive a notification if the plugin is out of date upon joining the server.

    Available armor tiers: leather, gold, chain, iron, diamond.

    Uninstalling this plugin:
    If you decide you no longer want to use this plugin, simply removing the ArmoredElytra.jar from your plugins directory will not get rid of any Armored Elytras on your server. Instead, you will want to enable to uninstall feature of this plugin, which can be done in the config.
    The way this feature works is by checking player inventories upon login and chest inventories when they are accessed and remove any Armored Elytras it can find. This means that you will need to keep this plugin installed to keep it uninstalled... Though it won't affect server performance much, if at all, as pretty much the entire plugin is disabled while in uninstall mode. Before enabling this option, please do not forget to make a backup!

    Well, made a mistake and posted it as a review. Love the plugin just that, why does it even need permissions? Newbies like me who just started using plugins would definitely need and seek help to allow other players to use the plugin.

    Works great, author was very helpful when I had some noob questions! Nice not to have to remember to swap to chestplate every time you arrive somewhere

    A fantastic plugin, with an even more amazing developer! Is extremely active and fixes bugs and adds suggestions right away. If you want armoured-elytas: this is the plugin to go for!
  9. LogoCat
    Version: 2.2.2
    This plugin is done by an active and patient developer. The plugin itself is a brilliant idea and could satisfy those end-game players to obtain a more powerful elytra without losing control of the vanilla settings.
    Highly recommend this plugin.

      Thanks for your review!
      If you're wondering what's going on with the animated doors plugin: It's quite a large project and while it is functional, there is A LOT of work to be done before I feel confident in releasing it publicly. Due to my spare time being extremely limited, I have put the animated doors plugin on hold for now. When I have more free time, I'll continue working on it though!
