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


/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

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!

    @Chevyman4life: Go

    Typically R(n) plugins will work with R(n) builds. Best way to find out is to try it and see.

    Second, and this is for all folks, the forum should be used for support related questions and feature requests. ;)

    Hey everyone i was just wondering if i can use mcjobs on a bukkit server with craftbukkit build 1.3.1 R 1.0. If someone can respond as soon as possible it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks have a great day.

    Would you be interested in creating specific block usage for certain jobs? Or even the chance to have guilds where money is earned faster inside them? I'd be interested in donating if you did

    I may have missed it somewhere in the past 85+ pages but, is there a way to change from paying in "Money" to an item? If this is a supremely stupid question please let me know. ;)

  • Avatar of BangL BangL Oct 11, 2012 at 00:58 UTC - 0 likes

    okay setting -'' and -'mcjobs.jobsavail.all' at world_pvp isnt supposed to stop payment, i see that now.

    but the point is: i didnt set '' or '', so actually it shouldnt pay there, or did i get this wrong?

  • Avatar of BangL BangL Oct 11, 2012 at 00:54 UTC - 0 likes

    i have a the 3 normal worlds and a custom world, named "world_pvp"

    in my config ive set usePerms: and multiWorld: to true.

    for the worlds i gave '', '' and '', using PermissionsEx behind Vault. for the jobs itself i gave '' and 'mcjobs.jobsavail.all' for the 'world' while 'world_nether' and 'world_the_end' inherits from world. then i additionally set -'' and -'mcjobs.jobsavail.all' for world_pvp to prevent jobs payment there.

    so: jobs should work in all normal worlds now, but not in world_pvp, right? nothing.. your plugin totally ignores all the perms ive set and pays every user in world_pvp! -.-

    @Netheme: Go

    Are you using a custom language file?

    @Nightiky: Go

    Not yet. SQL is what I'm working on now, but I haven't had a lot of time to program lately.

  • Avatar of LHammonds LHammonds Oct 08, 2012 at 13:01 UTC - 0 likes

    @Netheme, never say "latest"...always give the exact version number. And since this is an error, you really should include all other relevant information. What version of MC Jobs are you using, what version of CraftBukkit are you using, what operating system / version / bitness are you using (e.g. Windows 7, 64-bit), what Java version are you using (e.g. Java 1.7u7, 64-bit) and what is the command you are using to start CraftBukkit? It also helps to describe "when" this happens. Does it show up in the console immediately when loaded...does it happen only after a certain event in-game happens? Is something in-game not working because of this?
