About GUI Creator

GUI Creator

This is the successor to Admin GUI, featuring a simpler config but offering more powerful customisation!

How it works

Each screen is divided into ten rows, each having four columns (by default). Controls can be placed into any of these cells, and can span multiple rows and columns. It's also possible to set the exact x, y, width, and height values if needed. See the tutorial for more information.

Video overview


Available controls

  • buttons
  • text boxes
  • checkboxes
  • radio buttons
  • textures (for images)
  • sliders
  • gradients
  • labels
  • spacers
  • link buttons


  • SpoutPlugin
  • Spoutcraft

Both of these can be downloaded here


set this to the id of a screen to have that screen automatically open when the GUI does
set this to no to stop the plugin creating skins when players join the server

The rest of the config is used to change the default colours of things. Each value must be a string in the format r,g,b or r,g,b,a. Note that you can override these colours on any particular control.


/reload_gui_creator or /rgc
this will refresh the layout files if they have been changed since the plugin was started. The new screens will be visible the next time the GUI is opened
/open_screen or /os
this is an alternative to pressing the C key
use on its own to open the GUI like normal
use with a screen id to open the GUI directly to that screen


  • gui_creator.can_open_gui - controls whether the user can access the GUI. Default is false.
  • gui_creator.can_reload_screens - controls whether the user can reload the screen files. Default is false.

Mac users

I've been informed that Macs have a very unfriendly behaviour of treating remote folders like local folders and creating hidden files on them. This has been causing the problems that I've seen come up a few times where the plugin is trying to read this hidden file.

I've fixed this from 1.6.7 but it you don't want to update, or you're seeing problems with other plugins, there are a couple of things you can do. One is to delete the file .DS_Store from any remote folders that are giving you trouble. Second is to follow the instructions here and stop the behaviour altogether.


  • there are a couple of controls that are hard-coded in Spout so resizing them won't work as intended (mainly check_box and radio_button)
  • this plugin is intended to be run full-screen, with GUI scale set to auto (see the previous point)
