    Ever wanted a smaller and less resource demanding chest? Then this is for you!

    Help yourself or your players out by adding this useful Minichest to introduce a whole new type of chest!

    With this plugin you can do all kind of things.
    • Having a smaller chest and spending less resources.
    • Using them as decoration.
    • And whatever you think can think of! Be creative!
    The Minichest:

    The Minichest is crafted with 8 Sticks in a chest shape in a Crafting Bench. Which is only 4 Wooden Planks instead of 8. It has 9 slots to store items in. Looks like a small chest but it funtions just like a normal chest.


    Just drag and drop the Minichests.jar into your plugins folder and you're ready to go!

    • [/minichest] Give yourself a Minichest.
    Config explanation:
    • inventoryName = What text is displayed in the inventory.
    • itemName = How the Minichest is called as an item.
    • slotCount = How many slots there are in a Minichest.
    • [minichests.use] Allow a player to interact with MiniChests, by default, everyone.
    • [minichests.craft] Allow a player to obtain MiniChests through crafting, by default, everyone.
    • [minichests.give] Give a player permission to use the command: /minichest.

    This plugin utilizes the bStats plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to
    • Your server's randomly generated UUID
    • The amount of players on your server
    • The online mode of your server
    • The bukkit version of your server
    • The java version of your system (e.g. Java 8)
    • The name of your OS (e.g. Windows)
    • The version of your OS
    • The architecture of your OS (e.g. amd64)
    • The system cores of your OS (e.g. 8)
    • bStats-supported plugins
    • Plugin version of bStats-supported plugins
    • MiniChests-supported plugins

    In order to protect Minichests with Factions, you must follow these steps:

    1. Look for a file named 'conf.json' inside /plugins/Factions/
    2. Open it with your preferred text editor
    3. Add "SKULL" to the lists 'territoryProtectedMaterials' and 'territoryProtectedMaterialsWhenOffline'

    Your config should look something like this:

    Make sure to use spaces instead of tabs for indentation!

    WorldGuard, GriefPrevention and ASkyBlock

    In order to protect Minichests with WorldGuard, GriefPrevention and/or ASkyBlock, you must follow these steps:

    1. Look for a file named 'config.yml' inside /plugins/MiniChests/
    2. Open it with your preferred text editor
    3. Set WorldGuard, GriefProtection and/or ASkyBlock to "true".

    Your config should look something like this:


    Make sure to use spaces instead of tabs for indentation!

    If these are set to true and the corresponding plugins are loaded, Minichests will force them to protect minichests as if they were normal chests.
    Example: If you have a protected region in WorldGuard, players won't be able to use minichests unless the region has either one (or both) of these flags set to allow: interact and chest-access

    Will mini enderchests be added?

    While it's something I'd definitely want to implement in the future, It's not something very high in my to-do list as I currently have other projects in mind and I believe it may be better to implement as a standalone plugin.

    Will mini double chests be added?

    Because of how skulls work in Minecraft, there isn't a way to make mini double chests.

    Will the skin be made customizable?

    I don't think I'll do something like that in the near future because of the way the plugin works at the moment. It would require me to change the way of how the minichests' data is stored completely because if you changed the skin, old minichests would not work as their skin would remain the same.

    Will support for plugin 'X' be added?

    If the plugin is sufficiently popular or several people have requested support for it, support will eventually be added.
    Before suggesting this kind of feature please make sure there isn't already a way to make MiniChests work with it, check the above spoiler.

      The minichest and its contents will drop, as if it was a normal chest.

    I love the idea, it seems to work great, the only problem is it doesn't integrate with worldguard/factions etc.

    I won't be using this plugin until this is added, but still love the idea and it seems to work great.

      Thanks for your suggestion, I'll most likely add that in the next update :)

      EDIT: I added WorldGuard and GriefPrevention support.
      You can also set up Factions to protect minichests.
      Read more under 'Protection plugins'.
