    Just like the split that originally caused all these failed forks like (spoon beginning with G) and ImagicalMine (discontinued anyway), except on a smaller scale :/

    As for making API's... Well, I've tried that and it ended up as a whole lot of public functions in a gigantic main file. If there was some clear tutorial that documented how to make an effective API that isn't just a whole lot of public functions in the main files, that'd be great! :D

    What about a new API to make things a bit faster and easier

    PMMP needs better API docs, I've seen multiple threads with devs not knowing how to properly use items. There needs to be more example plugins that show how to use different classes within PMMP, as well as more extensive API documentation.

    Your post is as meaningful as "what about a software to stop all warfare in the world". Completely nonconstructive and obvious.

    This is completely irrelevant to this thread.

    this thread was talking about making plugins that extend currently existing ones instead of making new ones

    I just think ...
    It is insignificant.
    Like an advertisement, maybe you don't like ads at all, but developers have sent.
    I prefer something that your plugin is an extra feature of the other one, like some server's plugin, it's not necessary, but you can choose them to enrich your server.
    (My Chinese->English ability has gone.....)
    Anyway, depending other plugins is not useful to develop your unique server, if time permitting, you can develop all the plugins for your own server, which can make your server more efficient.
