Optional properties

This prototype inherits all the properties from Prototype/Item.


Type: double
The durability of this tool. Must be positive. Mandatory if infinite is false. Ignored if infinite is true.


Type: string
Default: "description.durability-key"
May not be longer than 200 characters.


Type: string
Default: "description.durability-value"
May not be longer than 200 characters.

In-game, the game provides the locale with three parameters:

  • __1__: remaining durability
  • __2__: total durability
  • __3__: durability as a percentage

So when a locale key that has the following translation

 Remaining durability is __1__ out of __2__ which is __3__ %

is applied to a tool with 2 remaining durability out of 8 it will be displayed as

 Remaining durability is 2 out of 8 which is 25 %


Type: bool
Default: false
Whether this tool has infinite durability. If this is false, durability must be specified
