Plugin Description §


Better dropped item management and features.


BetterDroppedItems is intended to make dropped items better. Its main feature is to create a better clear lag, giving each dropped item a individual timer rather than all items despawning at once. The plugin also clumps items of the same type together to reduce entity counts. The second feature is displaying the item's name about it.


  1. Item Despawning
  • Individual despawn times per item.
  • Set certain items to never despawn.
  1. Item clumping
  • Clump groups of the same item together to prevent lag.
  1. Name displaying
  • Display the items name showing: name, count, and despawn timer.


  1. Download the PHAR using 'Direct Download'.
  2. Upload the PHAR to the 'plugins' folder on your server.
  3. Start/Restart the server to enable the plugin and generate the config file.
  4. Edit the config to your liking.
  5. Start/Restart the server to apply changes in the config file.
