Catch mobs with eggs
I'm really upset that I have to give this plugin a 1 star rating. There aren't a whole lot of "catch mob" plugins available, at least not free to use ones.
I've found this particular plugin to be incredibly buggy. The permissions don't work on my 1.11 server and when permissions are disabled in the configuration file, attempting to catch mobs spits out massive, ugly errors in my console.
I've attempted reporting these issues to the Developer several times and was shrugged off at best or completely ignored.
I'm severely disappointed this plugin doesn't work at all and the Developer seems to have no interest what-so-ever in addressing the issues that a few of us have brought to his attention.
Our players just love this plugin. We've tried it using items as well as using economy and both payment methods work flawlessly. (You can set the cost for when a player throws an egg at a mob.) It's a great way to let the players have fun while also siphoning money out of the economy. I recommend this plugin to any server owner looking for something to spice up gameplay on their survival world and add a fun mini-game mechanic at the same time!
