Breaking blocks creates explosions that mine for you

    • Spigot/CraftBukkit 1.5 - 1.8.x


    • Mining blocks creates mining explosions (explosion power set in config).
    • Exploded blocks' drops go directly into your inventory if there is room.
    • Fortune or Silk Touch enchants are respected, so if the pick used has one of these enchants, all of the exploded blocks are treated as if they were broken using that enchant (This can be disabled in the config if required).
    • Customizable tool white list to specify which tools can be used to create mining explosions.
    • Mining explosions can be set in config to either damage or not damage players and mobs.
    • Set a % chance that a mining explosion is caused when a block is mined. Default is 100%, so lower this values in the config to use this feature.


    • /explosive: Toggle your explosive mining ability on and off
    • /explosive reload : Reload the plugin's config file

    • explosive.mining : Permission to use explosive mining
    • explosive.reload : Permission to reload the config

    Awesome Plugin could you make it so you right click and it repairs but it can still break if you dont repair it?

    This will definitely keep players from leaving the mines because they're bored.

    Bad code ;3
    I guess you are a beginner.
    Don't spawn a tnt primed entity. Just create a Explosion at the mined block.

    e.getBlock().getWorld().createExplosion(e.getBlock().getLocation(), 1);

    you can edit the "1" to yourself or to the config thingy

      I considered that, but if you give it a bit of thought you will realize that doing it that way makes it much more difficult to attribute an exploded block to a specific player so that you can give the exploded blocks to the correct player. Using TNT allows you to assign the TNT an owner that you can retrieve in the EntityExplodeEvent as well as all of the blocks that TNT broke.

    Thanks for listening to my idea, Hope others like it too.

    Thankyou for creating the plugin for free too!

    Idea: Could you make it so you can't see the TNT when your mining?

      The TNT is now not visible to the player.
