BetterChairs allows you to sit on chairs – Every block can be a chair

Report BetterChairs?

BetterChairs allows you and your players to sit on chairs. It's that simple!
Every stair, slab or block can be a chair if you want it to!

It is:

  • fast, as it has been written with performance in mind
  • easily updated, because you get notified about new versions, and your configurations get upgraded automatically
  • customizable, as it generates configuration files for you
  • reliable, as it supports all Minecraft versions newer than 1.8 natively
  • free and OpenSource. Request Features or add them yourself!

BetterChairs API (+ Events)

Please take a look at the documentation and the JavaDocs.

What are the differences to the original version?

  • Active author fixing bugs, adding features and add version support
  • Support all versions newer than 1.8 (and in theory some older versions too)
  • All stairs and slabs are supported in all versions
    • Have every block you like to act as a chair (can be enabled in the config)
  • PlaceholderAPI support
  • You can sit on slabs that are placed in the upper-half of a block
  • A working Update-Notifier that won't send garbage messages if the Updater fails to check for an update
  • Check if Signs are really attached to the chair (Requiring signs can be enabled in config.yml)
  • This version is less aggressive when a player tries to sit on a chair (Can be partly re-enabled in config.yml)
  • The content of config.yml and messages.yml has been restructured (old files are automatically converted)
  • Have a world whitelist or blacklist
  • Well documented API
  • Fully rewritten code (Improves: Maintainability, Performance, Readability)
    • Moved to Maven and configured GitHub Actions to automatically compile the project

Why did you create BetterChairs (Remastered)?

BetterChairs started in 2016 on SpigotMC and has been developed by BlackScarx. Some years later, I made my first commits to the project by adding custom Spigot-Events I wanted to use.

I have been granted write-access to that repository afterwards but could not contact BlackScarx and created this fork to fit my needs and provide support for new Minecraft version.

My fork quickly made some big changes, and I decided to fully recode and redesign this project. I started with moving to Maven and deleting all those spigot.jars from the repository.

Because of that I rewrote the commit history and detached my Fork on GitHub to be no longer displayed as one (always said '27 commits behind BlackScarx:master' because the commit hashes changed).

Today, I unofficially took over the project as soon as BlackScarx got inactive and am now maintaining this repository.
