    Lottery - The Lottery Plugin:

    I will only be using the BukkitDev website from now on. Please ask for help, submit bugs or enchantments and download the plugin from my page there (LINK).

    This thread is no longer updated - check my page on BukkitDev.

    Beware: Now only supporting superPerms from 0.6.2 and onwards!

    Version: v 0.6.2

    This plugin lets your users buy tickets for a price you decide to a lottery drawing.

    • Users buy a ticket and can win the money of everyone that have bought a ticket.
    • Configurable price, material (including money/coins) and hours between lottery drawings.
    • Supports iConomy v4, iConomy v5, iConomy v6, BOSEconomy v6, BOSEconomy v7, Eco Essentials and MultiCurrency. Thanks to @KHobbits
    • Permission nodes supporting superPerms (Bukkits default permission system)

    The Lottery Plugin v. 0.6.2

    Old releases:
    Source Code (This is my first project ever in java, so I would appreciate any advice in

    how to improve my coding very much)


    In the configuration that is made when the plugin is run the first time, you don't get comments about the different options. Here you do!

    #How many hours between every lottery drawing? Only whole numbers above 0 (like 1 or 2 or 3.... 24 or 25...)
    hours: '24'
    # The next execution option is really not to be touched. Its time in millisecs since 1. January 1970.
    nextexec: 1300368259883
    # Cost is the amount the buyer got to pay to buy a ticket. This applies both to iConomy coins and material. Only whole numbers. Negative numbers will probably work, but I don't see the point.
    cost: '5'
    #The material setting lets you choose which Material Value your users got to pay with, and get if they win. (its the "dec(imal)", value)
    material: '266'
    # If you want to use iConomy coins, set it to "true". If you want to choose your own material (block or item), set it to false.
    useiConomy: 'false'
    # If broadcastBuying is set to false, there will not be sent a message to every player when somebody buys a ticket.
    broadcastBuying: 'true'
    # welcomeMessage decides if there should be sent a message to the player on join about time until draw.
    welcomeMessage: 'true'
    #extraInPot just holds the amount of extra winnings in the pot has been added with /lottery addtopot
    extraInPot: 0
    #clearExtraInPot decides whether the plugin set extraInPot=0 after lottery draw, or if the same amount will stay until somebody changes it with /lottery addtopot <+/-> <amount>
    clearExtraInPot: true
    #netPayout is the percentage of the total pot that is being paid out to the winner. This can be as large as you wish, but not lower than 1 (one). 100 = 100%, which means the winner will get exactly as much as the players have paid in while buying tickets.
    netPayout: 100
    #maxTicketsEachUser sets the max amount of tickets each player can buy
    maxTicketsEachUser: 1
    #debug - This won't show up by itself, and there is really no reason for you to have this unless there is something wrong with your install of the plugin.
    debug: false

    PS: The /lottery claim command is used when you are using material and you win, since blocks/items can only be given to online players :)


    • A set number of tickets available, and let the user choose which one to buy. If nobody had the right ticket, add money to jackpot for next drawing. (low)
    • Using configurable array of prize items instead of getting whats in the pot. (low)
    • Show time left when it's 2 hours left, 1 hour left etc. Configurable. (low)
    • Let admins give out free tickets. (normal)

    You're the man! ;-) Thanks!
  3. I think the next feature you need to add is the ability to buy multiple tickets, it only makes sense :D
  4. Offline


    Actually, it won't take more than about 2-3 lines of code.. :p
  5. Sweet if you could add that ASAP so that the pot reflects how many tickets theyve bought that would save my life!

    Maybe by doing /lottery buy <amount> so /lottery buy 10 would be 10 tix and the pot would go up by 10 times the cost of the ticket.

    Thanks in advance, roll this out!

    @Erbros I use PermissionEX, mysql.
    I add to the user's permissions but they dont have access.
    Any ideas? Does the plugin support PermissionEX?
    The OPs can buy/draw/win in the lottery though, so it's working.
  8. Offline


    just wondering what is the point of nextexec
  9. Offline


    Just check the first post :) Every config variable is explained :)

    Any errors? I don't support PermissionEx, but it looked like PermissionEx supports plugins that try to use Permissions 2.x.

    No console errors.
    People just don't hae permission to buy tickets.

    Whe I type as a User /lottery buy it says: [LOTTERY] You don't have access to that command!

    If it was PermissionsEx fault it was goin to be you dont permissions to that command in red and without [LOTTERY] in the begining.
    Is there some settings that I am missing up or idk, please help me!

    If you have given your users the '' permission, there is really not much I can do to help you. I don't know the permission system that much, and nobody else have been having that problem.

    That is not possible at the moment. Sorry.

    Working on it. Had to change a bit more than 3-4 lines (more like edit/add 50-100 lines), but now I'm nearly finished. ;)

    Players can buy negative tickets (for ex. /lottery buy -9999) and it gives them 5 dollars for free per negative ticket. Can you fix this asap.
  17. Offline


    Wow, that's not good! Will fix at once!

    Edit: Fixed, 0.5.1 released now!

    @Erbros I just wanted to tell you that I got your plugin working.
    The problem in my permissions was that in PermissionsEx on type I wrote 1, while it has to be zero.

    I understood that you are using PermissionsEx too, can you tell me what is type 1/ 0 ?

    Edit: Fixed, 0.5.1 released now![/quote]

    you coulda fixedwhat happens when you use /lottery in console..

  20. Offline


    You are correct; I could have.. :p

    But at the moment I am using my time on other projects, and I only used time on this plugin because the error @crzye8 provided was so grave.

    Sorry, I've never used PermissionsEx, you will probably get better support in the PermissionsEx thread. :)

  29. There is no source file :( Can you give me a link
    And you can in the next version also integrate custom texts
  30. Offline


    I have an idea for this:

    You should be able to define an amount that will be 'extra in the pot' automatically added after each ticket is drawn in the config file :)
  31. Offline


    You can do that with the netPayout variable. If the tickets cost 10 coins, and you want to add 5 coins extra, just change netPayout: 150

    Edit: Simple math, as 10 coins * 150% = 15 coins.

    As for adding custom texts, that would be too much work. I will keep it in mind for when I'm writing my next plugin tho.
