Hello Goldorion, if this mod is working on a server in the first place, is there a way to only write on files located on servers ? (not on client side)

You can add "File with name "Name" in directory "directory" exist?"
this would be useful for mod to check if file already exists if not then make one :)

can you post a video tutorial on this plugin please, i am create a config to my mod to save blocks rank

Can anyone release a video explaining how to possibly make a config file with this? I am trying to make one but I seem to be failing at it. Thank you

I saw the second photo. I just don't understand how it works. I'm trying to make a config to where I can disable or enable my ores from spawning into the world kind of like how other mods work. So I can make them better compatible with each other.

Very cool!! But is there a way to use itemstack in a json file?
