    Known bugs:

    - Creating a chest then emptying its inventory makes it really buguy, the only way to resolve it is to delete the bugued chest. I didn't handled this bug because I thought nobody would be enough stupid to create an empty chest with a plugin that aims to make respawnable chests x)

    Holograms may not remove in some explosion or removal cases from other plugins, but I didn't experienced it since a while now.
    There is now a command to remove these bugged holograms.

    All menu texts are editable

    Using my code:
    Don't sell copy of this thing, it will always stay open source. You can still use my code if you want to edit this plugin for yourself, or someone in needs, or you can use some functions for your own plugin^^ (the fall effect class could be useful to some, and there's many menu in this, and also some config file functions)

    There is just a small bug with my server at least where the hologram is glitched and always stays there so if i dont break the chest then do the hologram remove command it lags the entire server

    Version: 2.3.2
    Awesome plugin! Great way to spice up gameplay. But please add compatibility with ItemsAdder
  3. Sonderous
    Version: 2.3.2
    The concept of the plugin is very nice. This plugin has a ton of potential, but it is very buggy in its current state. I've tried reaching out to the dev for support, but they have stopped responding. I really hope they don't give up on this amazing plugin!

      Author's Response
      I'm alone on this plugin and currently trying to have my master's degree, so I don't have time to fix the holograms for now, sorry.
  4. Leayx
    Version: 2.3.2
    Great plugin with a lot of potential. please hold on. I would be happy about a further development and the fixing of smaller bugs
  5. RibciaPypcia
    Version: 2.3.2
    Almost Perfect plugin. I love GUI, all of the particles etc. But, for me it is important to add a feature called "Chest per player", and a message, that you can loot this chest again in 7 days, 1 day...
    I wanted to give it a 5*, but my server won't work without these two features.
    If i am not ruining your concept, please add this features.
  6. illudota
    Version: 2.2.7
    perfect plugin, only the holos are buggy, but can be fixed with kill command or remove holos, but i hope that will be fixed soon, over all it does its job.

      I tried hard to remove them but nothing is working the way it should... it sucks^^
  7. 10kk
    Version: 2.2.7
    Really nice plugin, it's hard to find anything else like it for free. The only problem i've had is it leaves 'artifact' invisible armor stands and their holos when a chest is deleted, which can only be killed by using /minecraft:kill @e[type=ArmorStand,c=..5]
    Where c=..5 means kill all armor stands within 5 blocks. I hope the command might help you resolve how to fix the problem plugin-wise.

    Apart from that very appreciated plugin!

      Author's Response
      you can also use essentials killall command (/killall named 5, where 5 is the radius)
  8. henk847546156
    Version: 2.2.7
    used it for a good amount of time but i have a bug where there are 100 holograms on every barrel after a while and the command /lc removeAllHolo does not fix it its been more the 2 months now and the bug still exist
  9. MrBrumble
    Version: 2.2.7
    Good plugin overall however when you reload the plugin it wipes all chests and all data from the server.... so please don't use plugman or anything to reload the plugin, server must be restarted...

      My plugin just..cannot do this^^

    Great plugin overall, but I have encountered several bugs with it. None of them were overly significant, but enough to cause small inconveniences. Still a fun feature to add to your server.
