    NPC Trader - The Full featured localized shop system

    Version 1.1.4 (Testing Version!)

    The first localized full featured shop system for Bukkit/iConomy, in NPC Form!

    What's better for a localized shop system then your very own NPC Clerk / Teller / Worker / Slave / Whatever word you want to call your NPC!

    • Localized system
    • Fully player controlled (No admin intervention needed)
    • Full Item and Metadata support (Colored wools, etc)
    • Item name or ID recognition
    • Partial name recognition (If online)
    • Complete internal permissions system for managers of the NPC
    • iConomy Based
    • MySQL data storage
    • Item stocking system
    • In-Game help for everything
    • Supports Permissions and GroupManager (Using FakePermissions) Plugins!
    Installation / Setup

    1. Put NPCTrader.jar in your plugins folder
    2. Put mysql-connector-java-bin.jar in your main minecraft folder
    3. Restart your server (Auto-generates config.yml in plugins/NPCTrader/)
    4. Edit the config.yml for MySQL and other config settings.
    5. Restart once more
    6. Enjoy!
    If for some reason the folder / config does not auto-generate, then you can open the .jar file with 7zip or winzip or other archiving utility that supports jars and extract the config.yml from the jar.

    NOTE: If you do not have or do not know if you have MySQL setup then you either have to setup MySQL or not use this plugin for now. Please do not post questions asking how to install MySQL as that is outside of the scope of this post. You can follow this tutorial (Thanks @Germata!) for detailed windows installation and setup, but I cannot provide support for installing and setting up MySQL, only support for my plugin specifically.


    Permissions will only be used if it is installed. The following is the permissions list:

    npc.admin      - Give to admins for full access to all NPCs
    npc.admin.list - Access to /npc list npcs
    npc.user.*     - General user commands, you can specify by replacing * with command name, I.E. buy
    npc.manager.*  - NPC Manager commands
    npc.owner.*    - NPC Owner commands
    npc.create     - Ability to create an NPC 
    If permissions is used you may also specify limits on how many NPCs a specific player or group may have ownership flag on, please see config file for more information.


    Once the plugin is installed and running, you can see the in-game help by typing /npc in your chat window. To interact with an NPC just right click on it first.

    Here is a simple tutorial for setting up an NPC named Bob that sell's bread, cooked fish, and cooked pork, and buys wheat, raw fish, and raw pork.

    1. Stand exactly where you want your NPC, including head position and body rotation.
    2. Type: /npc create Bob 6 10 This will create the NPC with 6 Item Slots, each holding 10 units.
    3. Right click on the newly created NPC
    4. Type: /npc setup 1 bread 1 2 0 true false This will setup Slot 1 with Bread, selling lots of 1 at 2 Coins, buying them from players at 0, True for NPC Selling it, False for buying from players.
    5. Repeat step 4 for Cooked fish and Pork
    6. Type: /npc setup 4 wheat 64 0 10 false true This will setup Slot 4 with Wheat, buying lots of 64 at 10 Coins. This one is set False to selling it to players, but true to buy from players.
    7. Type: /npc stock 1 20 This will stock the NPC with 20 breads on slot 1 (Assuming you have enough bread).
    8. Repeat step 7 for raw fish and pork.
    You know have a fully setup and functioning NPC.

    Known Issues / Bugs

    • Config folder does not get generated on Linux - Works on Windows
    • Cookies and beds, and pretty much any other 1.4/1.5 items.
    • Spams console when you stand close to an NPC
    • Gives error when an NPC is spawned (Can be ignored)
    • Head / Rotation is not being properly set on spawn / move. (Fixed in 1.14)
    • Does not work with actual permissions (works with GroupManager)
    • Rename command is broken
    Things Todo

    • Re-write item handling
    • Support for both GroupManager and Permissions
    • iConomy 5 Support
    • Add armor capacity
    • Tie into WorldGuard for checking for build rights (Will be optional)

    If you installed MySQL for Windows just to run this plugin then check out this link to see how to create the initial minecraft database you will need.

    *** NOTE: SQLite IS NEVER GONNA HAPPEN! If you want to see an alternative, fork the src, make it work as an option, and I will include it in.***

    Edit: Where do I exactly put the blablabla mysql connector jar? IN my Minecraft bin? Or somewhere at the server directory I must download MySQL???? :((((((

    Edit again: I downloaded MySQL but it only contains normal files, no EXEs no TXT nothin just a bunch of ordinary "File"

    get wamp to set up mysql or yamp (google them)

    the connector is in the first post and goes in the same folder as your craftbukkit.jar renember the plugin descriptions are always written from a server perspective not a player one

    this plugin does not work at all at the moment, the author stated they would attempt to update it then well never posted again

    Please update us on where this plugin is going... I don't want to go and make a MySQL database and then find out you abandoned it. If you did abandon it, its okay... but please let us know.

    I think I am preaching to the choir here though...

    and now something totaly difrent...
    what about MsSql... (why does no1 use it becuase it cost money?. . .)
    damnit just becuase you buy unlimited MsSql for you website. and think you can use it too for the servers you running it NoNO. . . it the freeware MySQL (or SqlLite) that you must use. nothing for the costing MsSql.
  20. hmm, now we need to find the source :D

    MySql is available legaly free
    try http://www.wampserver.com/en/
    or http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

    sqllite is not the free version of mysql its a different beast most unreliable and uses a lot of resources i draged my heals over switching to mysql as i believed mysql to be a resource hog i couldnt of been further wrong our server is running much smoother for changing the sqllite plugins to mysql that support it

    please try not to spread disinformation, if you prefer sqllite then say so but mysql is readerly available free and legal
  22. I'd just like to point out that he was talking about MsSQL, not MySQL :p.

    thing is matcat posted to say he would update it that day (wednesday) then no post, if he cant fix it no prob but atleast POST lol

    With users so rude, requesting update as if they had paid for this, I would not like to update either... Just stay in 440 like every good server admin, and NPCs will work. Even WorldEdit and WorldGuard haven't been updated for 493, for God's sake...
