DropParty - A Drop Party plugin commissioned by the PokeFreaks network


This is a discussion topic for the Ore project, DropParty. View the full project on Ore for downloads and more information.


This plugin allows for servers to host DropParties. These DropParties each require a Setup, which contains at least one Chest Location, and at least one Drop Location. Upon starting the DropParty, items from the chest will be randomly selected based on the Tiers of items (The higher the Tier, the less frequent the drop), and spawn them in at one of the Drop Locations.

Players can also teleport to the DropParty setup, The player will be teleported to one of the Drop Locations, like they were an item.

Currently there are still a few issues that I am working on fixing, if more are found, they will be added to this list until they are fixed. This list will server two purposes, the first is to inform everyone about the current issues with the most recent build, and also it will be a check list of things that I need to get fixed.

  • At the present time, there is no way to load a droplist to a Setup.
  • The command for players to show the cost to start a specific Setup is not working.
  • There is a bug regarding having a DropParty started and running another one. The second party wont start, which is intended, but when trying to use /dp stop it tries to stop the second party which isn’t running, which throws a null error, this also makes the DropParty that is running unstoppable, it seems the only way to fix it currently is to remove the items from the chest. This is a major bug and will be fixed as soon as possible.


This plugin was originally commissioned by the PokeFreaks Network. They have allowed me to upload this for public use. As such, I wanted to thank them for the opportunity to make this plugin for them, and to allow me to reupload it.




Everything begins to work until I start the Drop party. Then it crashes my server do to ticks without dropping anything. Im typing “/dp start PixelDrop 1 20 admin”. “ServerHangWatchdog detected that a single server tick took 60.00 seconds (should be max 0.05).” Any ideas?


If you can send me the log and the configs I will take a look. I have not had this issue, so I will take a look as soon as possible.


why is it limited to only allowing 5 drop locations per party?


That was there while I was debugging things. I will remove it and make a new build. Thanks for letting me know!


A new version has been released for DropParty, it is available for download [here](https://ore.spongepowered.org/Elrol_Arrowsend/DropParty/versions/Beta v0.8).

  • Removed the 5 Drop Point limit on the DropParties


sounds good and appreciative. had a thought; rather then making drops spawn on those specific points; why not have a definable radius around those points for them to spawn? So they don’t always spawn in the same location preventing people from figuring out the exact locations they drop,


Well, I could add a range feature per drop but the idea of having multiple drops is to have them spread out over a area, and since the items are dispensed randomly between them then it’s not practical to camp just one. However when I have free time I may change this later. Atm I have my hands full with multiple commissions. But when I can I will add the option to have the range drop. More options = more customization = happiness


This hangs up after finishing the party and freezes players. Not sure if you are updating this anymore or not?


I will work on this tomorrow. Hands have been getting kinda full. If you can send me logs that would help. The Debug log will work.


Any debug option you can add into the plugin? My server just freezes and doesnt output what did it even though it is right after the dp ends. Surely I can’t be the only one with the issue though


Yes I am aware of the problem and I am working to fix it. I’m not sure where this issue came from it worked fine on my local machine. I will upload a new build when I have it fixed.


Thank you for the continued development.


any update on a fix? I know you’re a busy dev, i see you in the reforged server owners discord, just figured id check.


Im still trying to get settled. Got a new desktop. But i am still working on this. Even if i have to do a full rewrite of the drop party event.


I have been working on getting the plugin back in working order, and it is nearly done. Working on a few bugs and getting everything polished off, again. I will post the update within the week if not sooner. Sorry for the delay!


Guessing this couldnt be finished? :stuck_out_tongue: I know you’re a busy guy, just checking back in.


Ok. So here is an update on progress. Atm on my test server it works fine. It cant use two chests to drop things (it starts acting up) but it works. When i uploaded it to another server and tried, even deopping just one item, it lagged the server till it died.


What version of sponge are you testing it against?


Latest,Still working on flushing that bug out.
