SilkSpawners spawners are invalid or broken (CratesPlus)

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Help' started by Assab, Jun 18, 2016.

  1. Hello, so my players on my factions server have been getting an issue when placing a spawner that is not a pig spawner, it automatically changes it to a pig spawner from another spawner when placed saying this message. It only works from the SilkSpawners command but not from crates when I used the command and put them as rewards in the crates, I use CratesPlus. Everything in the config is enabled and it should be working, any ideas?
  2. It's not SilkSpawners but CratesPlus giving default mob spawner, tried IDs but won't work.
  3. I am currently having the same problem, did you find any fix for this?
  4. Could you please post your SilkSpawner config

  6. May I ask, what version are you using? because I downloaded it for my server, and it works perfectly, also take a picture of your Plugins, and I'll see if there is any plugins that might be causing the problem.
  7. A picture of my plugin list is attached.

    And, it works but will only give me a pig spawner when I place it down instead of the Zombie Pigmen spawner. I am using PaperSpigot 1.8.8.

  8. Yeah, I believe non of your plugins isn't causing the problem, maybe try reinstalling silkspawners?
  9. If your using Essentials, then it might've been that.
    Use EssentialsX instead. It has support for spawners being placed down from SilkSpawners and stuff.

  10. I'm using Essentials and SilkSpawners is working, It's probably the version he is using For either SilkSpawners
  11. It could've been Essentials, not SilkSpawners.
    Essentials has no supports for spawners being given or placed
    While EssentialsX does with SilkSpawners.
  12. True.
  13. It does not matter, Essentials nor EssentialsX will change the effect, the out come is still a pig, the problem is within CratesPlus. Essentials does not mess with the outcome when placing a spawner, nor EssentialsX. EssentialsX just as a command to get a spawner, but has nothing to do with placing it. I know this cause I tested it out. I replaced Essentials with EssentialsX, gave myself a spawner both using /give and /ss give. I tested it out by placing a spawner normally, it worked, I then put the spawner in the crate outcome. When I placed the spawner in that I won from the crate, it turned into a pig spawner. The problem is within CratesPlus and I'm looking into how to fix it.
  14. In CratesPlus, instead of giving them "SPAWNER" NAME:"THIS IS A RANDOM SPAWNER", in crates plus use the command feature and use /ss give {player} skeleton 1, and so on, and so forth.

    Here's an example from one of my old servers

    Type: COMMAND
    - ss give %name% Skeleton 1
    - broadcast &eVote Crate &8{mvdw_175} &c%name% &7got &c1 SKeleton Spawner1
    Item Type: MOB_SPAWNER
    Item Data: 0
    Percentage: 2
    Name: '&61 Four Star Mystery Crate'
    Amount: 4

    # (The ID is SPAWNER or MOB_SPAWNER, I forget...)
  15. does it work? im using cratesplus and csgo crates plus
  16. Try it and find out
  17. I completely forgot about this. So sorry this is soo late... Instead of actually going in the config for the item each time. Go to Silkspawners config and scroll down to the very bottom. And turn 'useLegacyName: false' to 'useLegacyName: true'. And that should solve everything better than going to each and every crate settings to change it.
