I am waiting for Bukkit to continue development or Sponge to take over. Until then, I can't develop this plugin!


Can you imagine a server where players work together like in an RPG game, but every single role in the entire society is filled by one or more players? A server where everyone can have jobs, houses, plots, shops and other businesses! There is a custom valuta and players can trade and buy stuff using it. You can have employees working for you if your company is succesful, or you can try to climb up the ladder in the company you are working for to become a rich player! But your city is probably not the only one trying to be succesful and wealthy... That's why it is important to have weapon factories in your city to supply you with the needed gear in times of war! Also be aware of the fact that is important to stay alive since you'll have to start all over when you die! Buy your plot, start working, earn money, learn many skills, become rich, buy a bigger house, start your own company, become even richer and make your city and yourself the most powerful ones in the world!

The goal of this open-source Bukkit plugin is to create a realistic society where fun gameplay is combined with a controlled RPG aspect. The big question though is whether players will like to be controlled in their way to success by the plugin. Will it become boring, or does it make the game even more addicting?! Find out for yourself when the plugin is finally finished

Oh bukkit... : 09/19/2014 5:29:10 pmSep 19th, 2014

Hello everyone. I've got some bad news: Since the DMCA Takedown of Bukkit I can't continue developing the plugin. I have a new computer now, but I don't have the server files anymore to test the plugin or to use it as a library. I hope you all understand...
When the problems about bukkit are solved I will continue again with the development. In case Sponge will replace bukkit, I will rewrite my existing code and start developing for Sponge instead!

One thing though: 
   You need to involve a class that literally builds the city and somehow do something like a rating system so only people who are good at building new building will do so.

Well that the cool thing is that the system fixes that by itself. The system will have jobs and companies. For a certain amount of money you can start your own company and it will have costs every month because of the building plots that are needed. So that means you have to be skilled to keep your company running, which means the bad builders will go bankrupt and their buildings will be replaced by the better companies. This is just theoretical and the question is if it will really work this way. I'm also planning on making a system in which you can train skills and you literally get better at it: lucky crafting, mining faster, running quicker, etc. Also on top of that there might be an age curve which determines how much better/worse you are at a certain skill. This feature also makes it economically attractive for server owners since they can sell those skills/plots/ingame money to keep the server running.

About the rating: I will makke it able to have your own page for your company. On this page you will see the rating, which people can give once they have used their product. You can give a description about yourself and company and it will show all people who work there!

this is acutally a great idea and i can't wait till its full setup an ready but i feel very few people would be able to pull this off for a server it would have to be someone with very popular in the minecraft community just for a server

Yes I do understand that. That's why it might be a good idea to actually ask 3 very big servers to pull this off and make them the only listed official servers for a month or two. This way I can see if it actually works or if it should be rebalanced (that will take a long time). Hopefully there are some big servers who are interested in an idea like this. But for now we just have to wait for Sponge...

I don't know Altis Life, but i don't think you could call it the same. I think this plugin is more focused on the economic side of an RPG. I don't know how it will turn out, but most of the idea's are about money and how to create an economy.

I hope so! Thank you for your support :)

Sounds like a brilliant idea. Although I am not very good at creating servers, I enjoy playing them. This would be no exception.

I thought about that, but it might be hard to keep it up on the forums/PMC. So instead it would be better to have a system that server owners send in their server with an IP adress. I will check it out and when i accept it, it will be on my site. That way you can just go to my website and see the official servers there.
Will you be having a list of all servers using this when it is done? That would be useful as I have been looking for a server like that, and would love to be a part of one.
