How to make a GUI in Minecraft using custom inventories and items.

GUI menus are popular on big networks and let players choose options in a menu-like manner.

This GUI menu tutorial is split into two.  This is the first part for beginners.

Bukkit is severely limited when you want to create multi-page menus, GUI animations etc., so in the next part I’ll show you how to do that too.

In this episode, we’re going to cover:

  • GUI menus — How to open a custom inventory, set a title, size and place custom items into it.
  • Security — Locking our GUI to prevent players from duplicating or taking items away.
  • Buttons — Linking menu items to specific actions (i.e. open another menu, clean inventory) for players.
