    NPC-Quester - Make NPCs give quests!
    Version: 2.3.1

    If you ever wanted a plugin that would make your NPCs give out quests, this is the plugin for you.
    Lots of features to be added, so keep on the lookout!

    • uQuest:
      • NPCs give random quests
      • Specified NPCs give out a specific quest and restricted those quests if wanted
      • If wanted, make players have a specified item in their hand with a specified amount, and if you want it, take it from them too
      • Quest chains!
      • Make NPCs give out the quest only once
    • EpicQuest:
      • Give solo quests
      • Give group quests
    How to install: (read carefully!)

    First off, required plugins:
    uQuest or EpicQuest (quests)
    Citizens (NPCs)
    Permissions (commands, not neccesary but nice to have)

    Now, to give your NPCs quests, use the ingame commands to make your NPCs quests!​
    You can also copy paste one of the examples and type your own settings there if you find that easier too.​

    Use in-game commands to add NPCs or change the config​

    Names are case sensitive!

    When you are done adding your questers, /reload your server to load them.


    For uQuest (not iQuest!): RAR, ZIP
    For EpicQuest: RAR, ZIP

    How to use:
    To get a quest, right click a NPC who is in the config file.

    Commands with uQuest:
    /npcq help [page], shows commands.
    There's too much commands to type here, so just use the help command to see them all.
    Reload command removed for now, it doesn't work
    Permissions with uQuest:
    npcq.edit - Normal quest editing
    npcq.remove - Normal quest removing
    npcq.item - Quest giver item editing and removing
    npcq.chain - Chain quest adding, removing and editing - Shows all commands in-game
    Commands with EpicQuest:
    /npcq help - Shows commands.
    /npcq add solo/group/turnin [npc name] - Add a quester
    /npcq remove [npc name] - Remove a quester
    Permissions with EpicQuest:
    npcq.add - Add questers
    npcq.remove - Remove questers - Show all commands in-game
    • Option to restrict random quest givers to NOT give out specified quests (Planned for next version)
    • Quest chains
    • Get quests only once
    • Right click a NPC twice to get a quest, see q info on first click
    • Automatic quest amount counting (Planned for next version)
    • Need a certain quest level before able to get quests from certain NPCs
    • Command to add random quest givers (Planned for next version)
    • Show quest status instead of "You already have a quest" when you hit a quest giver (Planned for next version)
    • Complete quest on hitting the npc (Planned for next version)
    • Possible quest fees
    • Complete quests only once then disable them for that player
    • Suggestions always welcome!

    You simply add the name of the NPC to the turnin list, and whenever you right click that NPC, it'll attempt to turn in your quests.
    You can add turnin to the quest givers as well. It will first turn in all the quests, then give you a new quest right away.

    Awesome. Can this be done via in game commands?

    There are 100 quests in the uquest.
    I want NPC A gives random quest to players between 1~50 quests.
    and NPC B gives random quest to players between 51~100 quests.
    How can I make it?​

    Randy Schouten

    But not for uQuest, that'll be for EpicQuest.

    Hey, can you please remove the uQuest part,since it doesn't work with uQuest anymore?
    People keep thinking it won't work without npc-quester,and it gives them tons of errors...thanks!

    I clearly state it's not for iQuest, so people have to read better.
    It's right next to the download link.

    I cannot get NPCs to give out quests. I made an NPC with Citizens mod, made him a Quester, and told him to give out a specific quest. When I right-click on him to get the quest I get this Severe error:

    Can somebody help me figure out the problem?

    Is it possible to have an npc not have all the quests?
  13. Offline


    Consider of switching to iQuest soon, because uQuest is inactive!
  14. Offline


    I am wondering this also. Seems currently you can only assign an NPC quest that holds all the quest.
  15. Offline

    Randy Schouten

    Worry not.
    Next EpicQuest, there will be a few extra things that I can use for NPC-Quester.

    This included:
    Do quests only once.
    Give specific quest.
    Put a quest in the "not in random quest rotation".

    Awesome news. any ETA. My server is setup to have npcs give one quest but i can't atm. Awesome news tho!

    Randy Schouten

    I can't tell you a ETA, but I might be able to get it out by this weekend.
    I have a lan-party atm, so I have lots of time.

    sweet that would be awesome. We are still in testing phase on our server and have about 75 npcs. Very interactive.
  19. Offline

    Randy Schouten

    Yeah, I've had a server myself, back when I didn't start developing EpicQuest.
    I had uQuest and NPC-Quester.

    Set up all kinds of NPCs around the world, giving out special quests and such.
    It was interesting indeed.

    Cool i will look out for hopefully this weekend.

    Except my 2 suggestions in your EpicQuest's topic, I'd love to choose which NPC can finish X quest, and not just the turnin NPC :) (just like an other plugin starting with i finishing by Quest :) ) But EpicQuest is just better than it, just waiting for the 0.9 and the new NPC Quester.

    could it be possible to add specific quests to one ( - or more ) NPC without giving them to the others ?

    I want to add some quests for RP classes, for the example.

    Kind of own quest files per NPC would be great :D
