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.

  • 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.

    Using /hcpay does not notify the receiving party about the amount that was added. Could this be implemented?

    @RegalOwl I haven't done any timings so I am not sure about server side usage but it's definitely better client side as far as fps goes. I am not sure if it's better on a per entity basis but since you use less entities to achieve the same thing it seems to be a much better option than signs for big stores.

    @Joecow: Go

    It's essentially half finished but it should be working well enough to use. There just isn't really any customization available yet. Hopefully I'll get a chance to add some more features and better documentation for the next version.

    For now they're simple. To create one place an empty item frame on a wall, look at it, and type /frameshop [name of item]. (/fs also works for short.) Left/Right click to sell and buy just like transaction signs. Many items have pictures, but some are missing at the moment and others don't really need them. If a picture is not available the frame shop will just have blank space where the picture would normally be.

    As far as lag I'm not sure. I haven't really heard from anyone and haven't tested it myself. I'd guess they're more resource intensive than signs but I could be wrong. Let me know if you find out. The lag shouldn't be anymore than a normal map in an item frame. It all depends on how maps in item frames are coded in Minecraft.

    Thanks, glad to help. I'll see if I can get the server shop max stock working soon.

    First off thank you for the great plugin! This is just what I was looking for!

    Anyway I just discovered /frameshop. Is there anymore documentation about it or anyway to customize it? I couldn't seem to find much in the wiki. Also how much client side lag(fps issues) do you think a frameshop creates compared to a sb sign + an itemframe with a display item in it(I made a big shop and the fps gets pretty low with 2 signs and one frame per item.)

    @RegalOwl: Go

    Just wanted to say thanks. I need the server-shops-have-unlimited-money feature, so I'll leave it as a server shop for now. Just knowing that the max stock doesn't work is helpful though, because I was spending a lot of time trying to figure out what I was doing wrong! If you're able to implement it, that would be amazing.

    I'd also like to say thanks for continuing to respond to questions and develop. So many plugins have gone stagnant these days, it's refreshing to find a developer who's keeping on. I'll try to divert some of my server funds in your direction soon. You deserve it.

    Someone gave a good suggestion to make the signs reset to a value after x seconds to prevent the problem of people leaving it on a huge number. I'll probably add that soon which should fix this issue.

    @paryl: Go

    The maxstock field in hyperconomy_objects currently does nothing. It's basically an unfinished feature, though it's not entirely relevant anymore. The maxstock setting works well in player shops so this isn't really an issue. So basically, to use max stock, create a player shop instead of a server shop. As far as I know player shops have all of the abilities and features as server shops as well as additional ones. To make the player shop use the economy's stock levels directly and act like a server shop use the /ms stockmode command. To set the max stock use /ms maxstock. I'll see about finishing the traditional maxstock feature as well.

  • Avatar of paryl paryl Dec 14, 2014 at 22:59 UTC - 0 likes

    I've been trying to set a max stock level for specific items, so that once players have sold X amount (total for the shop), the shop won't buy any more. I've tried various commands, I edited the max-stock-per-item-in-playershops in config.yml, and I set the MAXSTOCK column in the database for that item, but none of these seem to work.

    Is this functionality broken, or am I just not understanding it?

    Thanks for your help!

    Very smart thinking ahead like that :)
