Load custom images into Minecraft

    Tested Minecraft Versions:
    • 1.8

    • 1.11
    • 1.12
    • 1.13
    • 1.14
    The title says it all. I decided randomly to make a plugin that could load custom images into Minecraft since I didn't see anything similar readily available. This started off as a fling project that took me about a day to write, but seems to have gained a good amount of popularity.

    Therefore, I have rewritten it from the ground up to have native support of all 1.8+ Minecraft versions and use packet based entities for an entirely new experience.

    Basic Information
    You can load any image doesn't matter the size (as long as it's not 8K), however, it should be kept in mind that all blocks are 128x128 pixels. So, if your image is massive then it may take a lot of blocks to display and may also lag the client.

    On that note, images are rendered better if they are in increments of 128 pixels, but it doesn't make too much of a difference since it is resized in the background to fit regardless. These images below are examples of random images that I loaded into the game to be displayed.

    Any image format that Java can support is also supported.
    However, types other than PNG or JPG/JPEG may not be displayed in the list command.

    Basic Example.png

    To add an image without clicking a block hold and item in your hand when creating the image and right click anywhere in the air and the image will be placed in front of you.

    Horizontal Example.png

    Note that horizontal images are supported in 1.13+, however, they can currently only be placed while facing north.

    1. Download images-2.0.0.jar and place it in your plugins folder.
    2. Start your server to load the plugin and then stop the server.
    3. Open the config.yml found in the Images folder and configure the desired database (see spoiler for more information).
    4. Place any images in the Images folder.
    5. Start your server and start placing you images.
    Three types of database are supported:
    • SQLite (Default)
      • If you don't have a dedicated database or don't know how to configure databases, this is the option for you. This is the default so just leave it as is.
    • MySQL
      • If you already have a MySQL database and wish to have CustomImages use that, then this can be set by setting the type to MYSQL in the config and add the login credential for your MySQL server.
      • (Advanced Users) If access to table creation permissions for the Custom Images MySQL user is an issue, set the database.initialize setting to false in the config and contact me for table information if needed.
    • Raw data file
      • This is a simple completely raw byte file that is written to. It is much slower than the other two options, but is slightly more space efficient since it does not have the overhead of table structures etc. This is not applicable to almost anyone, but if you are really tight on drive space you can use this format.

    • /image create <image name> [scale percent] - Create and begin pasting a new custom image
    • /image delete - Delete an existing image by clicking on it
    • /image list - Show a list of the options of images that can be added
    • /image import - Import legacy images to the new format

    Tabbing is supported so you can easily see all your file options by typing /image create and then tab.

    You can scale an image while creating it by adding a percentage after the image name.
    Code (Text):
    /image create myImage.png 200
    the above command would create an image scaled to 200% of the original image size. Any percentage is acceptable as long as it is greater than 0.

    Scaling Example.png

    • images.command.create
    • images.command.delete
    • images.command.list
    • images.command.import

    Before the last update I would have rated this resource 5 stars. The most recent update in my opinion has worsened the plugin. When teleporting to images now they take about 20 seconds to load when before they would load instantly.

    /ci (essentials clear inventory command) is overrided by custom images which is really annoying for every player on my server.
    The Dev was made aware of this on the day of the update and unfortunately has not pushed out a patch for this.

      Hi OfficerMike,

      If you have an issue please tag me in the discussion and I will try to help you along with ask for more information on the issue. You are very unlikely to receive help directly by posting a review of something that is most likely a bug and not an actual review of the plugin.

    Basically the single working custom images plugin there is. Once 1.13 was out a lot of the old ones were dead. By mistake I found this one only to find out at the time, it wasn't working in 1.13. I messaged the developer and he was very nice to fix the issues with 1.13 and from what I understand to do a code refactoring. Now it works like a charm. Provides me with the best feature to add images to increase realism on my RP server.

    This plugin can EASELY be a PREMIUM plugin, since the great service it provides!
