MC Jobs


Welcome to MC Jobs

MC Jobs was created to pick up where jobs left off. These jobs earn you money for your server economy. There are 20 default jobs that are customizable along with the ability to create your own custom jobs.

MC Jobs

ANNOUNCEMENTS Updated 04/2015

So another year somehow has slipped by without being able to work on this project. So I have added PapiHarni to help keep the project going. Hopefully he can quickly get the codebase up to the latest Bukkit release. Welcome Papi.


I have also decided to release source on Github. If you want to fork or view the source feel free:

MC Jobs has been spotlighted by Curse gaming. Read the article here. Show your support for MC Jobs by commenting on the article.

What's New in 3.1

  • Cleaned up leveling system.
  • Added carpenter job.
  • Added a considerable number of nodes to the english.yml file.
  • Split the config.yml. Created a jobs.yml to hold the jobs.
  • Lots of bug fixes.
  • Danish language file - v3.1.2

What's New in 3.0

  • Added leveling. You can now level in jobs and your pay scale is affected accordingly.
  • Admin defined ranking system to leveling in the config.yml file.
  • Group based max jobs. Use your permission groups to define how many jobs a player can have.
  • Swedish language file.


There are no hard dependencies. MC Jobs can work out of the gate unchanged.

If you want to pay in money you need an economy bridge!

Register 1.6 or higher or Vault 1.2.13 or higher are needed.

Towny Advanced compatibility is only with versions 81.0 or higher. You cannot use v79.x with MC Jobs v2.6.15 or higher.


You have developed great shops with a shop mod or you use citizens as NPC shopkeepers, you have a repair shop, or you have a block protection system that uses an economy. But that begs the question "How do you pay your players?" Well you could just give them money, but what fun is that? That's where MC Jobs comes in. It's a full fledged player job mod where you choose how much they get paid and for what activities and they can earn money by doing those tasks. It's fully customizable by server admins, but for those of you that just wish to plug and play it has 20 built in jobs that covers about 90% of the blocks and entities in the game. Remember:

If you need cash get a job!


  • Ability to join or leave jobs
  • Obtain higher levels in jobs to earn more.
  • Charge or pay players for doing actions on the server by default. You want TNT to cost to use. You can! It's in Taxes.
  • Earn XP through jobs by default.
  • Earn money through jobs using any of the economy plugins
  • Ability to edit, create or delete jobs in the config.yml file
  • Multi World support
  • WorldGuard region support
  • Towny region support
  • Payments for mcMMO repairs
  • Utilizes craftbukkit's built in Materials List
  • Uses craftbukkit's built in Entity Type List
  • Uses custom Potion List
  • Uses custom Enchant List


/mcjobs = Allows all the user commands such as joining and leaving a job. /jobs = Alias of /mcjobs /mcjobsadmin = Allows the administrative commands. Reloads the addon or gives/takes a specific job from an online player or group if using Vault. Options are: reload, defaults, add player/group job, remove player/group job, list player/group. /jadm = Alias of /mcjobsadmin


Installing is simple. Copy mcjobs.jar into your worlds plugin folder and restart or reload your server. Players can then join up to three jobs (modifiable in config.yml). To join use /jobs join job_name . The default jobs are:

  • alchemist
  • armorer

  • brewer
  • builder

You can then leave a job with /jobs leave job_name . To learn more about each job type /jobs job_name . Feel free to check out the forums for more info!

    Thank you for your answer,

    And I am impatient to see an update, as many of the old users of your plugin.

    Would you have a date of Beta Test ?

    Hello Mizery01,

    I'm work on this plugin , but i will change a many. From Jobs File to Multilanguage and to Info Signs.

    But i have to do much. I write every free time on plugins. I have self a server, there i'm alone to write the plugins and much more. So i don't have enought time to work on all. I write from 4 till 12 hours daily on any plugins.

    More i can't do. Sry.

    Hello to you, I used this plugin of the years, and I have found never really a plugin which looks like her. Now that we know that you work above, I ask to you for it, I beg you, make that this mod re-works as before without bugs, already with Java 7. I am ready to donate 10 euros, in the hope that this plugin is followed...

    Thank you for everything !

    @PapaHarni: Go i think we both know that he typed it wrong and ment Java7
    Its sad that there is no feedback and the only reply to this is because an other owner made a little fault with the number of java.
    Whts is your next answers? Just a "you made messing mistakes? or fokus on gramar"? - Come on..that cheap @.@

    The fact is most servers just use Java 7

    So i gotl like many server:
    [13:16:40] [Server thread/ERROR]: Could not load 'plugins/McJobs_3.2.0.jar' in folder 'plugins'
    org.bukkit.plugin.InvalidPluginException: java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/dmgkz/mcjobs/McJobs : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0
    This meaasge tell u - "this plugin MUST have Java 8 (52.0 = 8, 51,0 = 7 50.0=6)"
    (complet errormessage because of incompatibility with java7 ->
    But Never mind - it just means MCJobs dont work for 75% of all servers.
    Dont say now "then update to java 8" the answer is this does not work. Why? Most Hosters deny the usesage of Java 8 for Minecraft currently,. They still say "mincecraft is developed for java 7 that is recommend by Mohjang so we do not change to java 8"
    Be happy if your provider let you have Java8!

    i just can recommend the author of mcjobs to combline an update that works with java 7/8 (mena compiled for java 7).

    oh i can allready see the reply to this tread.... "your cheap"<- or something like that -.-
    Lets see.....
