Recent updates:

* The vanilla server now supports item damage, so if you’re on vanilla SMP and have been using TMI before 1.0, you can all change your give-command to /give {0} {1} {2} {3}

2012-04-04: 1.2.5 is out! It is identical to the pre-release.

2012-03-30: Updated for 1.2.5 pre-release.

2012-03-22: Updated for 1.2.4. The new version also includes creative, rain/snow, and time buttons in MP! They use the default commands only. Also, there’s a bit of lag before rain takes effect so don’t mash the button.

2012-03-03: ModLoader for 1.2.3 changed method names. Please re-download and re-install TMI.

2012-03-02: 1.2.3 appears to have been a minor bugfix update and TMI for 1.2.2 does not need to be updated, just re-install from scratch.

2012-03-01: Released for 1.2.2. (If you have the bug with the first letter of enchantment names being cut off, re-download; I fixed it within about an hour of the release.)

2012-02-23: Released for 12w08a.

2012-02-17: Updated TMI for Minecraft 1.1 to address RedPower and Forestry mods.

2012-02-15: Released for 12w07b.

2012-02-09: Released for 12w06a.

2012-02-03: Released for 12w05b. Yay “weekly” builds.

2012-02-02: Released for 12w05a weekly build.

2012-01-26: Released for 12w04a weekly build.

2012-01-19: Released TMI for 12w03a weekly build. I may or may not do future weekly builds. I want to see how many downloads there are vs. how much work it is to update.

2012-01-12: Updated for Minecraft 1.1.

2011-11-29: Save states now save and load item enchantments. Minor improvements to the item list.

2011-11-19: Small but important bugfix for multiplayer.

2011-11-18: Updated for Minecraft release 1.0.0.

This is a HUGE update, not only because of Minecraft’s exit from beta, but because there are new features, with even more on the way later. Some of these new features are experimental! For example, you can now configure what type of mob spawner to place, change the key that turns TMI on/off, switch between creative and survival mode, and control the weather and time from TMI, and all the useful potions are included. The Trash function is different and you can also delete stacks by dropping them onto the item sidebar. Check it out! There is also an API for modders to hide items from TMI and use higher damage values than 15, but it’s not documented yet. I will be working on this.


Turn On/Off: Press the “o” key in the inventory screen. By default it’s on in single player and off in multiplayer. On/off state will be remembered. You can change the key (to a different one than “o”) in the config file (see below).

Add items: Left-click on items in the right sidebar to add full stacks, or right-click to add one at a time.

Configuration: Find the directory in which your minecraft saves folder and options.txt are, and if you have previously used TMI you will also find TooManyItems.txt there. This contains options that you can change, not all of which are documented yet. (Important: only set spawner to the name of a mob, like Skeleton, Sheep, etc. If you set it to another entity like a boat, your game will crash.)

Unlimited stacks/tools (single-player only): Shift-left-click on items in the right sidebar to add unlimited stacks OR unlimited-use tools or flint and steel. ModLoader is required for “true” unlimited stacks. Without ModLoader the quantity of >64 stacks will refresh when you open your inventory.

Trash (single-player only): Drop an item stack on the item sidebar or the trash icon to delete it. Click the trash icon to turn “delete mode” on and off (in “delete mode” you will delete any item you click on — useful for selectively deleting a lot of items). Shift-click thee trash icon to wipe out your inventory.

Toolbar: Next to the Trash icon, there are icons that turn on/off creative mode, turn on/off rain, and set the time to dawn, noon, dusk, and midnight, respectively. If you don’t want this functionality in your TMI, you can set itemsonly:true in your config file.

Save states (single-player only): Several slots are available for you to save your entire inventory and restore it later. (The “x” button next to a saved state will remove it.) This can be used to save your “real” inventory before editing, save a blank inventory to clear out everything you’re holding, save a full inventory of materials, share inventories between characters, etc.

Multiplayer: You need to be a server op. Also, every non-vanilla server works a little differently. The command issued to the server to give you items is configured in TooManyItems.txt as “give-command”. In this command, you should put {0} for the player’s username, {1} for the item ID, {2} for the quantity, and {3} for the damage value. If {3} isn’t in the command, items with damage values other than 0 won’t show up.

Vanilla server command: /give {0} {1} {2} {3}

* Since the vanilla server used to not support item damage with the give command, TMI will probably still have /give {0} {1} {2} by default. You can now add {3} to the end. The default will be updated in a future TMI version.

Bukkit with the Essentials mod command: /item {1}:{3} {2}

Fast crafting: Right-click on the output square when crafting to craft the maximum possible amount. (Works while the inventory overlay is disabled).

Fast transfer (single-player only): Hold shift while placing an item into a chest, or into your inventory from a chest, to transfer all items of the same type and combine stacks. (ConvenientInventory does this better, and TMI will use its functions if it is installed. Make sure to ONLY install ConvenientInventory.class).
