BlingPickPocket Bukkit Plugin for Minecraft

This pocket-picking plugin by SethBling is an interesting and fun addition to any multiplayer experience.  It allows players to steal items from the inventories of other nearby players – though some degree of skill is involved.


To initiate the pickpocket GUI, simply right-click any player you are close to.  Be aware that if the player moves too far away, the event will be canceled; similarly, if you are hit by anything during the process, the interface will close.


Picking another player’s pockets brings up a screen that looks just like opening a large chest:




Players will see one item at a time.  The item will appear for only a moment before it disappears and another takes its place at another location on the grid:




If the pickpocket is successful at clicking the item in time, it will be stolen from the other player’s inventory!  Simply place it in yours to keep it – and get away before they notice anything suspicious.  Note that each slot in the GUI represents a slot in the player’s inventory, with the bottom row acting as the hotbar.
