    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.

    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.

    Great plgin, but I'm missing a feature. There should be a feature what would allow you, if you make a webshop, the player will get the crate, in the world survival, and not in the world bedwars. Because there's that's issue.

    Version: 4.5.1
    Works well as expected, however, plugin doesn't seem to work after server restart (after configuring a crate)

    here's the error it gives me upon trying to execute /crate
    also gives me a similar error on startup during the same restart:

    Version: 4.5.1
    Best free crate plugin! Should be abld to choose how many items they can get for the NoGUI (several items with 1 key)
  5. skino0
    Version: 4.5.1
    If you put items from gui & you go to set percetance from config almost all items removed (still on config but in game only 2-3 from 25 can be used) full of bugs and i use "stable" version 4.5.1 . shit.
  6. Spooner
    Version: 4.5.1
    I freakin love this plugin! Easy to setup crates, easy to use commands, and a "key bank" so you can give players keys even if they dont have inventory space. I was having issues renaming/coloring the crates, but the issue was resolved pretty quickly and the Dev had an update soon after reporting it :)
  7. Kevin_007
    Version: 4.5.1
    No holograms are showing above the crates ( crates names ) although i am using latest version of holographic display plugin !
  8. LaserHax
    Version: 4.5.1
    so for some reason player's can't open keys but op's can? i don't know why if it gets fixed ill change my ''rating''
  9. BackUpM10
    Version: 4.5.1
    Amazing Plugin, But one problem the percentages are so messy it is mind-blowing it won't work if I don't set it as 50%!

    Version: 4.5.1
    Better than all alternatives (there's a lot), by far. My only issue is there's not many openers or effect options that come by default, and that's the only category competitors beat it in.
