    Description

    Ever wanted to move a mob spawner? With SilkSpawners, you can now pick up and move monster spawners.
    If you use a pickaxe with the Silk Touch enchantment you will receive the spawner again.
    You can control each mob spawner, allow crafting and of course mod support.

    As a reminder I want to say that I worked very long on this and really appreciate a 'thank you' in form of a donation! (See details on the bottom)

      Please do not use the review section for bugs or feature wishes. I can only reply once to your message.

      To answer your question: This feature request needs to be directed to SilkSpawners, not this shop addon

    Mooshroom cows arent working, no matter what permission i give to the player, even operators dont have permission to place a mooshroom spawner.

      I'd invite you over to my Discord to discuss the matter. I can't give any support via reviews. This is most likely a plugin conflict or misconfiguration.
