HyperConomy is the all in one economy and shop plugin. It can be a simple chest or sign shop plugin, a Vault compatible economy plugin, a region based shop plugin with many configurable options, or even a complex system of economically competing towns and kingdoms. Any vanilla Minecraft item can be traded in HyperConomy and virtually any custom item can be added as well. Prices can be configured to change dynamically or they can be set as desired. To quickly edit prices and settings you can double click on HyperConomy.jar to access the GUI editor. HyperConomy has many features including things such as item price linking and showcase style item displays. Read below or check out the wiki for more information.

Versions and Development Builds

  • Recommended builds are marked with [RB] and are generally thought to be stable and bug free.
  • Builds marked as [Beta] are as bug free as possible, but often have large code changes which may result in the appearance of new bugs.
  • Builds marked as [Dev] are development builds that I've decided to upload to BukkitDev. I may upload dev builds on occasion to provide easy access because Bukkit staff does not allow linking to development builds.
  • Development builds may contain bugs as I work on releasing a new [Beta] build. They may also contain fixes for bugs found in [Beta] builds. Use these builds if you're looking for a bug fix, or would like to try out a new feature I've just added. Also, feel free to search for bugs in the development builds. Any help with testing is greatly appreciated!
  • Development builds of this project can be acquired at the provided continuous integration server. These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk.
  • The latest development builds can be found here.



  • HyperMerchant
    HyperMerchant is a graphical user interface for your players to use to interact with HyperConomy shops.
    It is also includes the ability to easily create Citizens npc shopkeepers for your HyperConomy shops.
  • HyperConomy Web
    HyperConomy Web creates a web page for HyperConomy, displaying information about all shops, items, and price history. The web page appearance can be customized to fit your server.


New Features, Bugs, Problems, etc.

  • If you have a question, or find a bug, first check the FAQ. I will try to include as many helpful questions and answers as possible.
  • If the FAQ doesn't help, don't hesitate to post your question or make a ticket.
  • If you do find a bug, please include which version of HyperConomy you're using, the full error message or stack trace (if there is one), the version and type of Minecraft server you're running, and an explanation of how to reproduce the bug or what causes the bug.

    I fixed the issue for now by setting use-external economy to false, and enabling the internal hook to Vault.

    I'm using regular PaperSpigot 1.8.8 with nothing special (such as BungeeCord).

    Here's my Essentials userdata folder: https://www.dropbox.com/s/foxxtzs3jrwq7tx/userdata.zip?dl=0

    There is an API available. If you're in need of something that's not already included in the API I could add it for you. Here's the API.

    Here's how to access the API:

    		Plugin hcPlugin = getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin("HyperConomy");
    		MineCraftConnector mc = (MineCraftConnector)hcPlugin;
    		API hyperConomyAPI = mc.getHC().getAPI();

    I'm not sure I understand the second part of your question. What is the problem you're experiencing?

    As far as server shops you cannot directly set the price for items at a server shop. The prices for items are based on the economy's prices. If you'd like two server shops to have different prices, you'll need to create a second economy and configure it differently than the default economy. (/hceconomy create [name]) You can then set your shops economy to the new economy with /ss economy [name of economy] The prices are based on stock levels unless you have initial or static pricing enabled.

    @galacticwarrior: Go

    It looks like something strange happened. What sort of server are you running? Using BungeeCord or anything special like that?

    At now this is the best economic plugin I could ever find!
    But I just wonder if you're planning to make the API for this..

    @RegalOwl: Go

    Thanks for the reply,

    Tried the latest dev build but it worked to no avail. Can't access the Essentials userdata folder atm due to a bizarre FTP issue, but I have retrieved the HyperConomy errors.log: http://pastebin.com/bASax4GE

    Last modified on Jan 22, which I'm guesstimating is when the shop went weird. Is this "aaron1998ish" a corrupted user?

    Thanks for going through all this trouble,

    @galacticwarrior: Go

    Interestingly, your HyperConomy database runs fine on my test server with the same version of EssentialsX. I suspect you may have some sort of corruption in your EssentialsX data. Either that or there is some sort of plugin conflict. I might be able to tell you which account is corrupted or causing the issues if you send me your EssentialsX data folder. When I run it on my server with just the database it generates new Essentials player files for all accounts, presumably bypassing the problem you're running into.
