    HeroBounty adds a whole new dimension to Minecraft PvP. For anyone who has ever been killed by another player and wanted them to pay, but just didn't want to spend the time hunting them down, here is your answer! HeroBounty adds a public hit list to your server, allowing players to anonymously post hits against their enemies for a reward paid out of their pocket. Other players can take on the role of bounty hunter, competing to fulfill bounties and earn the reward.

    HeroBounty is a plugin originally developed for the HeroCraft server and is now officially being released to the public.


    • Anonymously issue hits against your enemies!
    • Become a bounty hunter and kill for pay!
    • Economy support! Earn in-game money for completing hits! Supports any economy that Register supports.
    • And more!

    The available commands are summarized in the screenshot below. Any parameters in <angled brackets> are required. Any <id#> parameters require the position of the item in the relevant bounty list.


    1. Creating a bounty
    The /bounty new command posts a new bounty against the player and for the amount provided. A percentage based cut is taken out of the supplied amount; the remaining money is posted as the reward for the hit.


    2. Viewing available bounties
    The /bounty list command lists all available bounties and their associated rewards. Bounties are sorted from highest to lowest reward. This list keeps both the bounty issuer and the target anonymous. You will not discover the target of the bounty until you accept it.


    3. Accepting a bounty
    To accept a bounty, use the /bounty accept command and give it the id# of the bounty you'd like. Accepting a bounty incurs a small fee - usually 5% of the award value. Once accepted, you will be given the target's name and the duration of your issued bounty will start to count down. If you fail to kill the target in the given duration, the bounty will be retracted and you will have to purchase it again to continue.


    4. Finding a target
    To help in finding targets, use the /bounty locate command. This command displays a list of your targets and their approximate. Target locations are rounded to the nearest 100 blocks by default, but this value can be changed in the configuration. These locations are only meant to give you a rough idea of where your target is. It is up to you as the bounty hunter to actually track down the player and complete the hit.


    5. Completing a bounty
    If you manage to kill a player for whom you have purchased a bounty for, you will be given the reward associated with the hit. The server will be publicly alerted of your success. The target (now dead) will receive a small monetary penalty - usually 5% of the award value.


    1. Download the latest version of the plugin from the link at the top of this page.
    2. Extract the contents of the archive to your /plugins folder.
    3. Open /plugins/HeroBounty/config.yml and configure to your liking.
    4. Save the modified file and start your server.

    All of the settings related to HeroBounty are stored in your /plugins/HeroBounty/data.yml file in YAML format. If you are unfamiliar with YAML, simply follow the pattern found in the config.yml file in the archive you downloaded. The comments in this default file, prefaced with a #, describe what each of the configuration options do.

    If found, HeroBounty will make use of TheYeti's Permissions plugin. The three available permission nodes are described below:
    • - allows use of /bounty new
    • herobounty.accept - allows use of /bounty accept
    • herobounty.locate - allows use of /bounty locate
    • herobounty.list - allows use of /bounty list
    • herobounty.untargettable - makes a player unable to be targetted by bounties
    A Message to Users

    Thanks for all your support! I will do my best to keep this plugin updated and bug free. If you have any issues or feature requests, feel free to either leave a message here or find me on IRC.

    Thanks to Nijikokun for help with making the plugin display nicely formatted messages!

    This is a direct result of improper coding, and the developer is nowhere to be found and his github code is v1.5, meaning this issue will not be fixed until dev gets back and changes the 1 word in his code thats messed up or someone else has the code.

    Hah, awesome.

    I recompiled it switching target.getAccount with hunter.getAccount, but it seems like recompiling crashing more things.
  7. Offline


    Like I said previously, players are not rewarded for killing their target.
    Does anyone have a fix?

    Is any currency entering or leaving the server this way?
    Does the reward get "paid" from the server or the poster?

    Its ok if some cash is lost, but if money is gained inflation will start up.

    Please respond back! Im teetering on this or another bounty plugin.

    Dev seems to have vanished. :(

  26. I think this is a working version??
    it is recompiled from the source code on github...

    Show Spoiler

    I tried to update it, but it didn't worked.
    so i compiled it to see if there where other errors, and it worked!
    so, a working version was placed on Github.

  27. an internal error has occured etc etc etc

    thats the message everyone gets when typing /bounty new [id] [amount]
    just wondered if anyone knew what may solve this
  28. see the posts above yours?
    it's because herobounty was not compatible with the newest register.
    but the plugin dev already fixed that on github, but didn't release the new compiled .jar...
    or something like that.
  29. ah fair enough, ive been busy with other things lately anyway, has it actually been released then
