    • 1.9
    • 1.10

    Thanks to Niestrat99 for the awesome new SimplePets Images!
    NOTE Must have spigot 1.8.8, 1.9.X, 1.10.X, 1.11.X, 1.12.X in order to run the plugin.

    NEWS: When 1.13 comes out I will be removing ALL support for 1.8.X -> 1.10.X (Don't worry tho, I will release a final version for servers who refuse to update)
    Code (Text):
    - SimpleAPI (Version: 3.4+)the plugin will not function without the plugin. The SimpleAPI plugin handles a lot of the tasks like [Particles, UpdateNotifications, Clearing pathfinding goals, and much more]
    - Spigot Version 1.8.8, 1.9, 1.9.4, 1.10, 1.11, 1.11.2, or 1.12(Recommended)
    - Java 8 (If you are not on Java 8 then update.... like really...)

    • Always Updated
    • Funny at times
    • 95% customization
    • Almost all the possible mobs in Minecraft
    • Easy to use
    • Easy to setup
    • Pet Riding
    • Dynamic File Updating (Certain Files Update automatically WITHOUT Restarts/Reloads)
    • Pet Hats
    • Item Storage (Allows players to store items in an inventory)
    • Pet Renaming
    • Constant Big Updates
    • Java 8 Compatible
    • ALWAYS Upgrading and improving code and play Style
    • And many more, but hey you have to try the plugin to find them out ;)
    • [MAJOR CONFLICT] If you use ProtocolSupport or any other plugin that allows Minecraft versions below your Servers version to join, will cause the plugin to break...... and in some cases crash players (Has been reported over 37 times, and 14 people reported it to crash users) (There is nothing i can do about this issue)
    Current pets
    Bat, Blaze, Chicken, Cow, Creeper, Enderman, Endermite, Ghast, Giant, Horse, IrongGolem, Mooshroom, Ocelot, Pig, Pigman, Rabbit, Sheep, Silverfish, Skeleton, Snowman, Spider, Squid, Villager, Wither Wolf, Witch, Zombie, and many more mobs!!

    What is SimplePets?
    SimplePets was first started around 2-3 years ago on a server I develop for (CatsCraft). At the time, SimplePets only consisted of 5-8 pets. But now enough of the Back story. SimplePets is a companion/pets plugin, The plugin was originally created to be an Easy-to-use more user Friendly Alternative to the now discontinued EchoPets plugin.

    How to install
    - Download SimplePets.jar
    - Upload/move plugin to your servers plugins folder
    - restart/reload server.
    - edit the configurations to your liking
    Need to keep track of issues with my plugins? Well look no further for I have a Custom Issue Tracker coded on my website. (I know some people will say "Well, why didn't you use GitHub's Issue Tracker?" Well ask anyone who knows me, and they will say that I like to make my own versions of other software)

    Code (Text):
    Q. Does this plugin have backwards compatibility?
    A. Yes it has support up to 1.8.8, and is available throughout 1.11.2

    Q. Why don't I have some mobs in my server version?
    A. That's because I never got around to adding those mobs in your version, and I have stopped adding stuff to the lower versions (You SHOULD be on the latest version because it is 100% better)
    NOTE: I am looking for updated videos on the plugin if you make one and its good I will add it to the Videos list

    Best. Plugin. EVER.

    This plugin is absolutely awesome! The built-in GUI is very user-friendly and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it! I can tell the owner has put A LOT of work into this plugin! Absolutely perfect! Found my plugin as EchoPet is no longer maintained and was a pain to edit messages

    I apologize for taking your time. However, when the player is thrown from the server, I get the following error;

    Will you help me fix it?

    Everything else is wonderful.

      The review section is not really for reporting bugs, but besides the point this issue has already been addressed in the upcoming version.

    Great plugin. 2 issues tho.. What's the perm to allow people to summon pets on the command line? i.e. /pet cow. they can chose one from the menu, and it's fine, but get perms denied from command line. Second -- flying pets only hover now, and don't fly up?

      I guess you didn't even bother looking in the config for the already existing fix for the Pet renaming. Simply toggle ViaAnvil in the config.yml and that will make pet renaming via chat instead of the GUI.

    An Incredible plugin with a developer that strives for perfection and simplicity. I truly appreciate the work you do, and I look forward to using SimplePets on my server once more! There's simply nothing like it.

    no support for 1.8, why did u remove this man.
    So sad about this question pls redadd 1.8
    1. brainsynder
      Author's Response
      Ok so ummm
      1) WHY ARE YOU STILL ON 1.8!!!
      2) 1.8 Support is not removed yet (It will be removed when )
      3) I will not reconsider this idea because the 1.8-1.10 code/limits are making it harder for SimplePets and for me to add more features requires them to go.
      4) Look at the Stats of the plugin here to show you (Based on Highest percents per version):
      1.8(9.8% | About 22 Servers)
      1.9(2.6% | About 6 Servers)
      1.10(8.7% | About 20 Servers)
      1.11(13.1% | About 30 Servers)
      1.12(25.3% | About 58 Servers)

      Here have a look for yourself
