    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.

    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%!

    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.

    Now that it is updated, it's back to being the best crate plugin out there. Keep up the great work!

    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'm having issues renaming/coloring the crates. I have to edit the config file to do so, using the GUI in game causes my client to crash. Would also be nice to see a hook for CMI to display holograms.

    I would rate this higher if it wasnt crashing at those times or had the CMI hook.

    Good plugin, amazing developer.

    I have 1 suggestion that can make this plugin better...
    Can you make it so you can withdraw Virtual keys into Physical keys and deposit Physical keys into Virtual keys?

    Thanks for the amazing plugin.
