Frequently Asked Questions

When I place spawners they turn into pig spawners - This is caused by a conflict with another plugin. You can solve this problem by taking away their control over placed spawners. For CMI, set spawner placing to false, and for SilkSpawners you're honestly better off removing it.

Entities spawn but they stop spawning after a while or after their first spawn. - This is how its supposed to work. Once there are 6 (or whatever is defined) mobs a spawner will stop working as to not spawn too many entities in a single area. To fix this, reduce your Radius To Search Around Spawner: in your EpicSpawners configuration to make it spawn more entities when the entities move further away.

How do I create ItemSpawners with EpicSpawners? To make an item spawner, grab the item(s) that you want to spawn and put them in your inventory. Then open the editor with '/es editor'. Click the paper down the bottom to create a new spawner. That should open a new menu. When that is open, click the chest down the bottom. Shift-click the item(s) from your inventory into this new menu. Once the item(s) are all in the menu, click the redstone to save the instance. Then hit the back button up the top. Click the redstone on this main menu to save the spawner. Good job, you just created an item spawner!

To name you spawner and display item, completely close the menu with ESC. Get the item you want as the display item in the shop and inside the spawner cage and put it in your inventory. Make sure you are holding that item! Open the editor again with '/es editor' and your new spawner should appear first in the list. It will look like a head with '?'s on it. Click it to open its menu. There should be another head with '?'s on it. Hover your mouse over it to see the options. You can left click to change the name. That will make you enter what you want the name to be into chat. You can also middle-click to set the display item. That will use the currently selected item in your inventory. If you edit anything here, always make sure to hit the redstone to save.

Description

EpicSpawners is the ultimate spawner stacking plugin giving you seemingly unlimited possibilities and options

EpicSpawners brings your servers spawners to a whole new level. It allows you to combine spawners together to create spawners that are 2x, 3x, 4x and even 5x as powerful as a normal spawner (the limit can be increased) and it can even combine completely different spawners together to create OmniSpawners!\

Installation

Installing EpicSpawners is usually quite a breeze. However, there are a few things you should look out for in order to help troubleshoot if a problem is to occur.

If you are running CraftBook, you must disable “xpstorer”. I am not sure why this happens but having it enabled allows players to duplicate spawners and therefore it must be disabled.

If you are running CMI, you must disable it's spawner functions. It will not work while they are active.

Firstly, EpicSpawners is compatible with SilkSpawners. However, it is optimal that you remove it as EpicSpawners covers most of its features. If you must have it installed, then you need to disable its ability to drop spawners, otherwise, there will be issues.

Other than that just throw the latest version of EpicSpawners into your plugins directory, grab the latest version of Vault and you're good to go!
