    About compatibility and support:

    I do not support plugin versions other than the latest one.
    Only Spigot and PaperSpigot from 1.13 to 1.18 are supported, you can use forks but full compatibility is not guaranteed.


    BSB or BetterShulkerBoxes allows players on your server to open a shulkerbox while holding it, so they can open a shulker box, for example, in a protected area.



    More ways to open a shulkerbox:
    You can right-click them while holding them or inside your inventory to open them.

    100% Customizable:
    You can customize open and close messages and sounds, inventory name, cooldown.

    Custom inventory names:
    You can choose the inventory name for shulkerboxes, you can also use %shulker_name% to use the shulkerbox's name in the inventory name.

    Ability to enable/disable and config the sound that is played when a player opens/closes a shulkerbox.

    Items saved as metadata:
    Better Shulker Boxes doesn't store the container inventory in a file, as other plugins do (i.e. playervaults). All items are stored inside the metadata of the shulker box; this means that if you uninstall the plugin, nothing will be lost.

    Better Shulker Boxes is completly free. Donating is an option though

    bettershulkerboxes.*: Grants all permissions (Recommended for admins)
    bettershulkerboxes.use: Allows players to use the plugin.
    bettershulkerboxes.bypasscooldown: Allows players to bypass the cooldown (Recommended for exclusive ranks).
    bettershulkerboxes.admin: Allows the player to reload the configuration, check for updates manually and be notified of new versions.

    /bsb - Shows the version of the plugin and the help menu.
    /bsb reload - Reloads the config.yml.
    /bsb check - Check if you are running the latest version available.

    If you would like to contribute by translating the messages to any language not yet supported DM me on Discord or Spigot.


    Better Shulker Boxes uses bStats to collect statistics, it does not send any sensitive/personal data and it is completely anonymous.
    The data collected is limited to:

    • Server statistics: Player amount, online mode, Minecraft version, software (spigot, sponge, etc).
    • Hosting statistics: Number of cores of the CPU, system architecture, operating system, server location (by country) and java version.
    • Plugin (BSB only) statistics: Plugin version, some configuration parameters.
    I understand privacy concerns and if you don not want to send any data at all, set 'enable_statistics' to false in config.yml inside the plugin folder.
    For more information about data collection visit the bStats website or feel free to contact me.


    Statistics can be seen here.​

    Version: 3.1.3
    Very well-made plugin! The only gripe I have about it is that there isn't a config option to allow opening the shulker box when clicking on the ground.

      Hi AnnaSan, please download 2.14.1, it should fix this error. In case it does it'd be great if you could update your review.

    Very fast respond from developer to fix a bug.
    Also the plugin is a must have for any survival server, when there are trades between players on locations where they can't place blocks.
