‘Please Don’t Break’ is a Bukkit/Java plugin for Minecraft servers, which I first wrote in 2011.
At the time, I was having difficulty finding a plugin that simply kept the game’s tools from breaking. No one wants to be stuck in a deep pit with a broken pickaxe! So I wrote this plugin, and it has been running continuously on my brother’s server ever since.
The plugin protects all iron, gold, and diamond tools, as well as shears from breaking. You will still notice your tools start to take durability damage, but they will be repaired to full durability after a given number of uses.
