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 04/2014

Just an FYI for anyone watching. I've been going through the project trying to get it ready for 1.8 version of Minecraft since there's some substantial changes to the minecraft code. I'll have a minor update soon that just adds the new blocks that have been added, but there's going to be a pretty hefty rewrite of some the code so it does support 1.8.

Updating to 3.1.0 will break 3.0.9 and less player data files. Everyone will have to start from scratch. With that said the admin command now has the ability to add levels and experience to player jobs.

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

    @PapaHarni: Go

    Could it be?! I like money to be based on items in game, not arbitrary values that make it worthless. IE: a gold ingot costing 100 is easier for everyone, while on run-away-economies it may be worth 100000000 which no one could buy, so I like keeping it all tight knit.

    I'm sure others would benefit from this, as well. Could I ticket a feature request?

    @Absentee23: Go

    I have added it now , but i don't know it is work correctly. I cant test it. My Server is 1.6.4. this version of server have no uuid support btw uuid support is bug.

    My current version have no admin commands but the multilanguage,database (yaml/mysql) and all functions for users and jobs will be work fine.

    == All that you do from here, you do at your own risk ==
    For Transfer all Jobs to yaml/mysql and installation of the McJobs :
    1. BackUp McJobs folder. ( Remove all after backup but not the dat folder and there files , you need it to convert. )
    2. Stop your server.
    3. Download the McJobs.jar >>> McJobs.jar
    4. Download the McJobsDBCast.jar >>> McJobsDBCast.jar
    5. Put both files into plugins folder of your server.
    6. Start your server to generate the new config files.
    7. Stop your server again.
    5. Configurate the file config.yml on McJobs folder.
    6. Configurate the file config.yml on McJobsDBCast folder ( only you want to use mysql as Database )
    6. Start your Server again.
    7. Go Ingame or in Console and type /mcjobscast dat ( what you want now to use as database >>> yaml or mysql )
    8. Restart your server a last time.

    Your users can change the job language with /jobs language (wished language)-
    You can add more language on language.yml. Its easy ;-)

    I hope everyone understand it. My english is very poorly :-D

    Is there a way to have mcJobs pay out from a server bank account? My flow I'm looking in to using is this:

    Player mines/smelts gold, Trade gold to bank for economy cash, Buy land in Towny, Towny money goes to server account (built into Towny), and I would like that server account to pay out to the Jobs. Gold traders get a 8% tax, Diamond traders 15%. These taxes go to the server bank account. Emerald farmers can make deals with the bank where they are given a hefty sales tax that may be as high as 99% would also go to the server account. These emerald farmers will likely be a big server's bread and butter, as most money paid out to jobs will come from these emerald farmers. Everyone pays taxes to get $ and all that goes to the server account to pay out to mcJobs.

    The theory is to only pay jobs if there is money, and there is only job money if there are town plots being bought or regulated metals being traded. So imagine mcJobs now as "paid server construction" if you will. Paid by the server, but only if the players are participating in the economy.

    Also, and optional, is it possible to make it where it works with Towny, where you can't make money unless you're in your town?
