    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.

    Awsome Plugin, Easy to add new stuff into crates, customize crates and make new one! Works perfectly in 1.12.2!

    Version: 4.4.5
    Please make it so that I can add keys to essential kits, until this is added the plugin is mediocre. No way for me to give the players kits etc. without typing in the command.

    Version: 4.4.5
    Nice and useful Plugin! But can you add a Option to directly add the given keys to the /crate Claim menu? I have installed the MobArena Plugin and the Players who fight in the Arena and got some keys because of /crate key all EXAMPLE 1 cant take the keys with them after they finsish the MobArena.
    I hope you will Reply me :D

    Don't listen to any of the fake reviews. The plugin works perfectly, just make sure to add the percentages up to 100%, nothing over.

    Version: 4.4.5
    This plugin is the best crates plugin iv'e seen out there (in my opinion.)
    The only downside is to set percentages to items in a crate, all the items in the crate must equal to 100%. Like if you have 2 items in a crate, one must be 50% and the other must be 50%, or it could be 60 with 40%. So pretty much the items must be equal to 100% as explained. The plugin would be a lot better in my opinion if there was a option that we can choose how much percentage can be added to a item. Like to have 1 item with 70% then the other 50% and etc. But all around a great plugin, easy to setup crates, easy to config, and has holograms on top of the crates so you don't have to add the hologram. Also, you're able to configure items that are in the crate in game that which is a great feature.
    (also, i added that long text of percentages for the people that are having trouble with it and don't understand how to set it up)

    The percents don't work or when they do, the crate deletes itself and I have to restart again, after one reload, ONE! I even took a config that worked, copied it and the crate works. But out of no where, mid crate, the crate deletes itself. And allowing players to win kits for some reason doesn't work either.

    Works good, Sad that you said you can add chances to specific items. Because you can't and i was looking for a plugin who could, Installed for nothing.
  8. Porkchop
    Version: 4.4.5
    It would be nice if i didnt have to manually give players crate keys, i tried adding it into a kit and it doesnt work at all
  9. killerjacks22
    Version: 4.4.5
    I really enjoy this plugin but the only downfall i have found is that the crates do not save NBT data, so I cannot put crate keys as rewards, and that I cannot change the drop chance of items. Otherwise this is an amazing crate plugin.

    in paperspigot server have big bug.
    after server some time cratesplus treasure chest problems will occur.
    draws will receive all rewards directly and create lag.
