    Source Code:
    A very light bukkit/spigot plugin that will restrict the creative mode NBT copy feature to certain players while allow others to use it.

    Do you want to save players data (Inventory, Enderchest, Money, Health, Exp and more...) on MySQL database? Or sync players data across servers? Then check out my other plugin:

    Do you want to save Essentials data on MySQL database? Or sync Essentials data across servers?
    Then consider checking out my other plugin:

    What is creative NBT copy?
    You can use Ctrl + middle mouse click to get an exact copy of the block (tile entities) you are pointing at (with its NBT Tags, that means for chests for example you get also a copy of the chest content). For example:
    • (Trapped) Chest / Dispenser / Dropper / Hopper: same name, same contents.
    • Furnace / Brewing Stand: same name, same contents, continues smelting/brewing at the point it has been copied.
    • Note Block: same pitch.
    • Jukebox: same disk.
    • Command Block: same name, same command.
    • Sign: same text.
    Ctrl + middle mouse click doesn't work on entities (e.g. chest/hopper minecarts, mobs, mob heads), their NBT Tags are not copied.

    What does this plugin do?
    This plugin will restrict the ability to copy the NBT tags for players that does not have permission.
    How does it work?
    Players that are in creative mode and do Ctrl + middle mouse click and don't have permission for NBT copy will only get the item like they normally do with middle mouse click without NBT data.
    When you may need this plugin?
    When you give creative mode to some players and you don't want them to duplicate any chest (including items they hold) especially if the server is in survival mode. Example: If you give creative mode access to some VIP's and you don't want them to dupe items for survival players.

    • Very light plugin.
    • Fully configurable. Easy add items to restriction.
    • Prevents NBT copy for tile entities..
    • Prevents copy of items with enchantments.
    • Bypass permission to allow staff or trusted members to use the NBT copy feature.
    • Config reload command.

    No dependency's

    Found a problem or got a suggestion?

    For any issue, suggestion please comment in the Discussion Forum page, the button Discussion.

    Left click in creative mode also removes NBT tag.
    This is a Minecraft limitation, as it triggers the same creative event for both left click and middle click so there is no way for me to know when you did middle click or not while in creative mode and inside the player inventory, as you can see it works fine when you open a chest or other inventory, the reason for this is the client does not notify the server when you click in creative in your inventory only after you already placed the item so I don't know where did that item come from, creative menu, from inventory or middle click.

    Best plugin. I was looking for this for a LOOOONG time. It will be nice to be more customizable (add items that you don't want to copy or choose what to do when copying)

    Exactly what we needed for our Creative server. Works as advertised. Thank you! I would love to see you come out with a plugin that blocks over enchanted items to add to your creative plugin resource.
