About DirtyArrows Plugin

DirtyArrows is a plugin which allows you to release the powers of your Bows. When you rename a bow in an anvil to a specific name (possibilities will be shown further down in this post), the bow becomes a real Bastard. With the plugin enabled, the Bastards allow you to use their specific powers. The uses could vary from PvP, PvE or even aesthetic uses. The config.yml allows you to enable or disable certain Bastards to your wishes. This is my second plugin made in request for a friend of mine, dirtdeluxe (yes, he’d liked to use the name Bastard?). I hope you’ll enjoy and have a fun time with the plugin! If you’d like to check out the source of the plugin, click the button above to see the GitHub page. The reason why I make the source-code public, is because I learnt to code due to all people who published their code too and all people who made tutorials, so feel free to learn! If you’re an advanced programmer you can always report any mistakes and/or give me advice http://img.niceminecraft.net/BukkitPlugin/simple-smile.png

If you’d like to say/notice/talk or whatever to me, you can always send a PM or mail me to [email protected] (direct response not guaranteed, I don’t check it that often). This can be good stuff, bad stuff or just silly talk (I’m always in for it). My mind supports English and Dutch. If you’d like to talk German or French it can? But I can’t express myself that good in those two languages and I’ll probably switch over to English.
