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.

    The error log does implicate essentials and vault.

    @shmancelot: Go

    I believe its java 7. But i also ran a vanilla server with just the HyperConomy plugins and it worked fine. So its one or more of my plugins that is making it not work.

    @deving100: Go

    Do you know what Java runtime version you are using (6 or 7 or 8)?
    Have you tried updating it?

    Also, it could be a file system permissions issue.

    @shmancelot: Go

    No, not that i know. The only thing different from other servers is that i have a lot of different plugins.

    @deving100: Go

    A google search for this bug shows that it commonly comes up when people are using a NFS mounted drive. It could also be due to the version of Java you are running. Is there anything unique or unusual about your server setup?

  • Avatar of deving100 deving100 Sep 14, 2015 at 22:45 UTC - 0 likes

    None of the in game commands are working for me. I type the command and it doesn't even show the "Unknown command" message. I even tried looking in the console and nothing shows up.

    The only thing i can see is when i start my server there is a error with the plugin but i dont know what it is.

    @CrystalMare: Go

    It will run ok but the data will lose integrity. Since HyperConomy loads the database into RAM when it starts and then only uses it to save data while running, the changes on each server will overwrite each other. The solution to this is to use the multi-server mode (along with 2 databases) which mirrors HyperConomy data between servers.

    @RegalOwl: Go

    Can I run multiple instances of HyperConomy on the same backing database?

  • Avatar of RegalOwl RegalOwl Sep 11, 2015 at 14:46 UTC - 0 likes

    @CrystalMare: Go

    If by flatfile you mean SQLite then yes. HyperConomy did use flat file storage in the past but it no longer does for anything except the config. If you're on a very old version of HyperConomy you should be able to upgrade to the latest version by following the upgrade path here.

    To migrate from SQLite to MySQL export your database data with /hcdata exportcsv all After that shut down HyperConomy with /hc disable. Alter your config and set use-mysql to false. Enable HyperConomy with /hc enable. Finally import your data with /hcdata importcsv all.

    I haven't made an entity relationship diagram or DDL script. The database is pretty straightforward though. The conversions between SQLite and MySQL are performed automatically by my database library SimpleDataLib. The tables are created by the createTables() function here.

    @MrBrasta: Go

    So to import/export data and edit it do the following: /hcdata exportcsv all This will create an import_export folder filled with CSV files. Edit the parts of the database you'd like to edit and save them. Make sure not to change the format of the CSV. Import the changes with /hcdata importcsv all.

    The database itself can also be edited but not while the server is running. The above method will work at all times.
