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

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!

    Please Post the Path of your config.yml where is "max_jobs". Check the write style of your groups. Wirte it in the config.yml lowercase like :

      default: 3
      denizen: 5
      vip: 6
      admin: 99
      owner: 99

    @PapaHarni: Go

    We are trying out 3.2.0

    The number of default jobs seems to be working but only if i restart the entire server, and wait a while. ??? /jadm reload seems to only effect changes to jobs.yml. A server reload is not an option for we use worldguard and multiverse and neither support bukkit /reload

    So far the issues are minimal and the users love making money doing what they do, so if these issues cant be resolved by me, then i guess we will wait to see the updates.

  • Avatar of ShawnDaGeek ShawnDaGeek Sep 17, 2015 at 18:51 UTC - 0 likes

    I have 2 simple issues with the plugin but i am not sure if these are bugs.

    spigot 1.8.8; vault "current"

    1. Ranks never update no matter how i arrange the levels.

      novice: 1
      apprentice: 10
      trained: 20
      professional: 50
      veteran: 100
      expert: 500
      master: 1000
      grandmaster: 5000

    2. Permission nodes for number of jobs does not seem to be working correctly. I have added the nodes and changed the default to 7 but everyone including OP still have only max 4 jobs

    job ranks never change

    @boushwa: Go

    Not yet implemented this option. But this idea i have too for a while.

  • Avatar of boushwa boushwa Sep 17, 2015 at 13:25 UTC - 0 likes

    Is there a way to make jobs pay out when using a certain tool? For example, the default Digger job has a description that reads "The digger earns money by breaking blocks with a shovel." However, the digger job pays the player regardless if a shovel is used or not and I don' t see any options to make certain tools required, in this case a shovel.

    Thanks in advance.
