Logo AS2

starVersion 2.3 is now available!

AShops allows players to sell and buy items with a chest. Unlike many other shop plugins, it doesn't use signs to represent a shop offer. Instead, it uses chest inventories and item descriptions and thereby makes possible to sell or buy (or both) items of different types using only a single chest. It means less chests and time spent on creating shops. Using description as an offer details source makes shopping also more friendly than reading a raw text from a sign, and by representing an offer as a real item, not only it is easier to find what you need, but it also allows you to sell/buy the exact item you have in your inventory, with all data it contains.

What's new in 2.0?

  • New shop interface! You don't have to use commands anymore. (see the next section for more info)
  • Transaction notifications work even when a shop owner is offline.
  • + old features: income taxes, shops limits, minimal price limits, server shop account.

How to use the new interface?

  • To create a new shop you have to place a chest and attach a sign to it or above it. For a player shop set first line to :as:, for a server shop: :ass:.
  • To manage your shop (add offer, open/close it, remove it) shift-right-click on the sign and use menu icons. Read icon descriptions for more info on manager options.
  • To sell/buy items from other players' shops left click on a shop sign and then on an item you want to buy/sell. Read icons' descriptions for more info on trade options.
  • To load/collect items from/to your shop left click on a shop sign and then on an offer's icon. If you manage other players' shops or server shops, you will have to use a right mouse button to manage an offer.
  • You still can use commands to create and manage shops. Use /ashops command to list all available commands.

How to install this plugin?

  1. Place AShops.jar file in the /plugins/ folder.

To the Users of previous versions

AShops 2.0 is not backward compatible. We changed a database system to more reliable one and now we have to use other structure of tables. AShops doesn't support a flat files storage system anymore - now it works only with MySQL databases and, hopefully, it will support SQLite soon. All features that used WorldEdit will be released as a separate file.

    Looking at the permission nodes, doesnt seem like there is a "safe way" to give normal players access to create a shop. If im over looking it I apologize.

    The jar file does not generate a file . Where is the problem ?

    Thanks, however these messages won't be used yet. I thought I will be able to create a cool menu with inventories, but it's not possible at the moment to do what I need. And I don't want to modify craftbukkit, because it would make this plugin version-dependent.

    To solve problem with Lockette you have to change enable-quick-protect to false in Lockette's config file.

    Do you mean server shops? Yes, it's possible, use /asshop command (double 's'). When you add new offer to it, players will be able to buy infinite amount of items. Note that if you use /abuy you still have to provide number of items you want to sell, however this number will be ignored. It's because at the time of calling a command, plugin doesn't know if you are going to click on a player shop or on a server shop.

    I sent message to Lockette's maintainer already. Maybe we will find a way to make this two plugins compatible.
