    It's okay I guess, except like someone said below only opped players can use crates. There is no permission node like stated in the configurations and when messaging the author you get an automatic message that they don't respond to messages and to submit issues via another forum that you have to sign up for (really inconvenient tbh). I'm giving it 3 stars because I've used this plugin in the past and it's worked great, not sure why the big changes causes players to not be able to open crates now.

      Author's Response
      Nothing has been changed to cause crates to no longer open. If you read the wiki correctly not having a permission node set means CratesPlus doesn't handle crate protection at all. If you're having trouble opening crates it's likely another plugin (such as WorldGuard) or even spawn protection preventing it being interacted with (as stated on the wiki)

      As for the auto-response and another place to submit issues this is to assist with managing the project. It's a plugin that is 100% free and I don't make any money from this, I have a full time job and other projects to work on, as well as having fun. I don't have time to go through the multiple messages I get a day and filter through all the spam that I receive. I've also disabled messages completely now for my profile anyway.

      You have to remember that this "inconvenience" is actually convenient for myself, and considering I'm providing a free plugin that most people actually make money from it's the least you could do :)


      This was a long reply ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
