    CratesPlus is provided as is without any guaranteed support. Posting in the discussion tab may get you help from other user's in Spigot but the best shot to get help from me is on GitHub, though I do not guarantee a response due to been busy with other things in life.

    For help with configuration, debugging etc please check out the new wiki.
    • Custom Crates!
    • In-game editing!

    A full example config with notes can be found here to help you out with configuring the plugin, includes examples of perms, percentages/chances, commands, blocks and more:

    It's advised not to use the in-game GUI if you edit the configuration file. As data will be lost due to the in-game GUI not supporting the same range of features as the config does. There is also a Wiki over on GitHub that has some documentation on the plugin.

    Can you help me? I don't know how to put commands. Like give player items or kit when they win at crates.
    Oh and i don't realy know why but on 1.12.2 any crates plugin don't work with preview. Players can take the items from preview. I disabled it but it will be nice if you will solve that

      Ahh sorry I didn't make the plugin work directly with that one plugin you use. However, commands would support this just fine :)

    I love the plugin, easy to use! Only thing is, it doesn't seem to work with my KitAdder. I create a kit and include the key, but when I get the kit and try to open it it says 'You need a [name] key to open this!' ([name] is my crate name, which is Rocket in this case). But the key says 'Rocket Key', I don't get it. Still love the plugin.
