    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.

    • 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.

    The overall plugin works fine on 1.13.2 I just can't rename crates or change the crate color. I have to do it in the config file because it no longer works in the crate settings menu.

    Excellent Plugin. Using Spigot 1.13..2. Ive tried out a handful of other crate plugins...... this is the best. Hands down!

    Cool Plugin! Even though there are a few configurations missing for me, as well as the Plugin could be designed minorily better, it is awesome!

    Version: 4.5.1
    This plugin has a lot of potential. It works perfectly but every time I restart/reload my server I just get this error . Every update too, please fix this.

    Version: 4.5.1
    When I remove a crate the hologram stays. Also, if any slight amount of lag occurs on the server players can dupe rewards

    Extremely simple to configure and straight forward. I do have one issue but unlike some of the tards in this review section I'll pop over to the discussion for help instead of pasting my issues with a 1 star review. They don't deserve the help.
