    Introduction to Heroes
    Heroes is a dynamic, flexible and highly configurable class, skill and experience system. Heroes itself is the hub of your players RPG experience, boasting classes, multi-tiered and fully fleshed out. Along with classes, Heroes offers your players a new style of PvP through our well-developed skill system and our weapon + armor restrictions. No longer will your mages have the ability to use diamond swords, your rogues will no longer sneak around in their heavy diamond tunics and most importantly, you can now hurl fireballs and stun your targets. The best part of this? It's your choice how your Heroes is set up, don't want a certain skill, that's fine, you can just remove the skill and be done with it! We're working towards making everything about Heroes configurable.

    What can I do with it?
    With Heroes, you can do almost anything you'd want to do on an RPG server. The main feature is our customizable tiered class system, which offers as much to the server owner as possible. Your Heroes could be totally unique to your server, it could be the reason players play your server over a server with Heroes but a different set up. The same can be said about our skill system, it's unique to any of the other RPG plugins out there. Other plugins dub "Skills" as methods which you level up, this isn't the case with Heroes. Skills are things you can do which are unique to your class. Some of our favorite skills are Fireball, Jump and Port. This is what makes Heroes unique.

    What will you help me with?
    We'll help you with errors. That is where it ends. We will not be supporting your issues with your configuration files unless it's a bug within our code. Heroes is a big plugin and it's taken a few months to develop, we don't want to spend the next few months supporting silly issues rather than developing new and awesome features. Posting in this thread with an issue regarding a YML file will get you ignored. We'll be OK with helping you understand the configuration files, but we will not be fixing them for you.

    Where can I download it?
    You can download the latest recommended build here. You can download only the primary Heroes jar or the primary jar along with all the skills provided in a ZIP archive. Each skill inside the ZIP is enclosed in it's own jar, meaning you can pick and choose what skills you want your server to run. This is so you don't have un-necessary weight on your server.

    • Permission Skills
      • Based on the permission-node system, ability to set the level required to learn certain permission-nodes to have a highly configurable system.
      • Does not use the /skill prefix - Permission skills copy the original command exactly.
      • Also works with non-command required Permission nodes (ie. Firelord for special armor abilities for certain classes)
      • Example: herosneak.sneak can be granted to a "Rogue" class at level 10 - so when they reach level 10 - they can now use the ability /sneak
    • Binding Skills
      • Ability to '/bind <skillname>' to an item to right click and use that skill
      • Use '/bind' again to clear the bind and remove the right click ability

      • Armor & Weapon restrictions based on level and class
      • Configurable in classes.yml [DIAMOND]
    • Levels
      • /level - to show information about the level - comes with a nice interface to show you how much left to obtain the next level.
      • Set a mastery level - once achieved the user may switch to different classes and have their level/skills saved on the mastered class.
      • Configurable curves of exp to make lower levels easier and higher levels harder to get through
      • Optional Health gain per level
      • Configurable loss of exp (0.10 = 10% per death) by current level
    • Exp-Sources

    Hey it's me again! I have one more question before to configure everything.

    How work the "parent" and "child" options. I know this give to the "child" to configuration of the "parent" but I would like to know if the level and xp go back to 0 of it will still continue where it was?

    Also, I still think that an auto-change-classes would be usefull. ie: Healer become Cleric at level 20.

    Btw, is it possible to create the config like this?:
            level: 5
                air: 1
    ... or it's only possible 1 time by classes?

    I would defintately agree on this being the best RPG plugin, but I don't think you can really argue "not much more we can do" until this plugin can be used to replicate everything hard-coded RPG plugins can do. Until you can do things like healing/manaregen/damage/fireresistance based on what blocks are being touched (fire mages heal in fire/lava kinda thing) and custom requirements for class changes (support for some basic ones as well as coding solutions) I feel there is very much more that can be added.

    What does "summon-max" do in the classes.yml? What about mappartyui? Honestly, a guide on configuration would be really helpful, I imagine you would get less stupid questions like mine, and it would make the whole plugin more user friendly.

    Also, how difficult would it be to make the "smoke" skill only work under a certain light level. I know some rudimentary java, and I was thinking about taking a shot at it.
  6. Does Heroes work with PermissionsEx? Because I'm using v1.13 with Heroes build #57 and CraftBukkit build #1000, and I'm getting this error in my console:

    13:45:43 [SEVERE] Could not pass event PLAYER_JOIN to Heroes

    Heh, finally I get to use the wiki, click here
    The max ammount of summons a class can have. I'm working on a guide to help people out here.
    Yes, I know. The wiki sucks right now. I'm still working on it. Also the 1.1.4 Heroes update does have more help in the config files now.

    Healing? Check. Manaregen? Check. Damage? Check. Fireresistance? Check.
    Based on what blocks are being touched? I personally don't need that, but there IS water breathing, does that count?

    /pr <name> promate <group> Is not a Heroes command or issue, you said yourself you removed the Hero plugin and still got the error, check on the Permissions thread. Not much else can be said about this.

    I'm going to create a 3rd party editor for class setup, or has somebody already started?

    me again, I think my main problem with this plugin is that I cant give more powerful versions of the same skill. That is to say, I cant give my healer class "bandage" at level 1 that heals 1hp, then bandage again, more powerfully at level 15 that heals 10 hp. This forces me to either make users wait till late game for a key skill just so that it is powerful enough, or have a skill remain weak at a high level. If you could fix this one issue, the usefulness of this plugin would double, at least for me
  10. Offline


    Its already been talked about, having skills get more powerful as the class levels. Until then I guess we deal with it.
    Although, you just gave me an idea...

    Well, that's fucking stupid. @Kainzo says that there's not much more to work on in the plug-in. :|

    Check out the second post, he has the to do list posted....
    To Do List:

    • Increasing damage/skills via level
    • Combat logger
    • Multi-world toggling
    • Mark/Recall integration
    • SuperPerms support
    • Class selection wizard

    What about having a more complete default class list? :)
  14. Offline


    I think the best part of this plugin is the complete customization. If you put in a big default class list people will start using it for the wrong reason. (My opinion) Make your own classes and give them awesome names!
  15. Offline


    can somebody help me with making custom skills?
  16. Offline


    On purpose, we do not put a complete class list - Heroes is about what YOU want out of YOUR server. Also Quakecon Rocks.

    Those are all simple things that plugin coders can add, minus for the custom requirements in class changes. Why not code some public skills to do the healing/mana regen and resistances? :)

    Hey @Kainzo think you could post a list of all the unwritten class modifiers (like "parent:" and damage) Thanks trying to flesh out my classes just one example class would do :)

    well not really, kainzo said he couldnt help me any further with this error untill I give him the required support info, and I did that..

    Thanks for replying. Unfortunately I have a family and work full-time, and support two Team Fortress 2 servers. I just don't have the time to play with it on that level, and having a more complete set to tweak takes a lot less effort. I'm afraid I'll have to just remove this plugin for now. Great job on it though.

    I am so jealous of you right now. This is the first year in 5 years I missed it. :(

    Also are you guys answering any questions about skill development in IRC?
  23. Offline


    Hello, i'm pretty new to the making of plugins, but im trying to make a Mage class. I'll be able to make the class by myself (as of right now). I do, however, want to make some custom skills and animations for the class. I'm wondering how hard and long you would expect this to take, and also how to actually do it. I understand it must be in the Java language, correct? I do not, however, know how to program in Java. That probably kills my chances doesn't it :(. Anyway, any help or feedback would be appreciated.
    Fixed it

    Any way to tie in Falsebook commands to this, hehe on my time on Herocraft the crafter class could make falsebook things

    Example: herosneak.sneak can be granted to a "Rogue" class at level 10 - so when they reach level 10 - they can now use the ability /sneak.

    ^ How would I config this?

    You'd want to learn Java, look up thenewboston on youtube Start at vid 1

    Also check out Torrent and Samiko's guide for bukkit.

    Le PHeel

    This was pertaining to the "dropping untrained items into the toolbar" to get around the block. I have the same problem of players simply dropping blocked items into an open hand and using it as long as they don't switch items, and I don't understand how to fix it.
