Villager Control Bukkit Plugin for Minecraft 1.7.4

The default Squidward villagers are creepy.  I think most people would agree with me.  Konvict Gaming’s Bukkit plugin Villager Control doesn’t change this, but it at least allows your to set some limits on how many villagers can occupy a single area.  Cut down their numbers to curb the creepiness!

 

Four commands are added via this plugin:

 

  1. /Vc – this command displays help options and the current state of the plugin.

  2. /Vc Toggle – just as it sounds, turns the plugin on or off.

  3. /Vc Area [r] – the r stands for radius.  This command sets the maximum distance which another villager may be for it to be considered “in the same area”.  When the plugin is installed, this value starts at 8.

  4. /Vc Max [x] – where x represents the maximum villager count for any given area, as defined by the previous command.  The default for this value is 10.

 

So what is this plugin good for?

 

Well, first of all – if you’ve ever encountered a village, you know there are lots of testificates (villagers).  More importantly, if you’ve ever encountered a bugged village, you know that it is annoying as all Nether when they are constantly opening and closing doors and making that creepy noise.  Finally, too many villagers can cause issues with lag.

 

On a less utility-focused note, this can be useful to simply dampen the overall population on the server.  Possibly a great addition to any mod that increases the frequency of villagers or otherwise provides some interesting villager mechanics!

 

How to Install Villager Control Plugin for Minecraft 1.7.4

 

  1. Download the latest version of Konvict Gaming’s Villager Control plugin.

  2. Place the .jar file from step 1 into your server’s plugins directory.

  3. Run the server and wait for it to fully load.

  4. Restart your Minecraft server or login to your admin account and execute the /reload command.

  5. Run the server again.  The plugin should be properly loaded.

 

Can you think of any mods that this would compliment well?  The first that comes to mind for me is Minecraft Comes Alive – I haven’t tested it, but if babies count as villagers, then this plugin could potentially keep servers from getting horribly overpopulated.  Comment below if you have any other ideas!
