MoneyDrop, the original money dropping plugin, is back and better than ever!

MoneyDrop drops virtual money, represented by an ingame item, when a mob or player dies. This money can be picked up by players, but will go into their wallet instead of their inventory. Vault and an economy plugin supported by Vault are required to run MoneyDrop.

Note: MoneyDrop version 2 uses different settings than version 1. Read the following instructions before updating or things will break!
How to set up MoneyDrop
The steps in bold are for those updating from version 1.
Step 1: Make sure you've got one of the supported economy plugins set up on your server.
Step 2: Download and set up Vault if you haven't already.
Step 3: Download the latest MoneyDrop and place it in your plugins folder.
Step 4: Back up your existing .yml files, then delete the original ones.
Step 5: Start up your server and shut it back down again.
Step 6: Edit the .yml files in the plugins/MoneyDrop folder with your favorite text-editor. This page tells you what does what.
Step 7: Start up your server and you're good to go!

MoneyDrop 2.2.0 supports permissions. The nodes are:

  • MoneyDrop.pickup - Allows the player to pick up money.

Permission use needs to be enabled in The config files.

Extending MoneyDrop
MoneyDrop can be easily customized with other plugins.

I found a bug!
Post a ticket and I'll try to fix it asap!
Bugs that allow players to get more money than intended should be PM'd, not ticketed.
Please don't discuss money duplication in the comments.

Something isn't working, can you help me?
I'll try, but I'll need the following info:
- The version of MoneyDrop you're using.
- A list of other plugins you're using.
- Any errors that pop up (the entire error message).
- Your MoneyDrop config files.

I can't pick up money when my inventory is full.
This bug has been around since the day MoneyDrop was made and is one of the few bugs that can't be fixed due to the way bukkit handles item pickups.

Why did you get rid of the WorldGuard and Spout stuff in version 2?
To increase the stability of MoneyDrop.
Don't worry, the features are still available, but in the form of an extra plugin. That way, if one of the other plugins isn't playing nice with MoneyDrop anymore, you can just remove the plugin that links the two.

I'll donate if you add this!
Donate because you like the work I've done, not because you want me to do something.
If you want a feature added, post it as a suggestion or hire me to make you a custom version.
Asking me to value your suggestion higher because you promise to donate is disrespectful to both me and your fellow users.

What's new in version 2
- You can now set the damage values to further customize your drops.
- Money is now easier to configure and has better support for decimal values.
- MoneyDrop will automatically add new mobs to your config file when they're added ingame. No need to update each time Minecraft does!
- Features relying on other plugins have been removed to make MoneyDrop more stable. You can find those features again in the form of a MoneyDrop-extending plugin.
- Many under the hood optimisations.
- A new event system makes it even easier to create plugins that customize MoneyDrop's behavior.

    @Iwitrag: Go

    I do not get these errors. Maybe something is different in your configs? Here's mine: You could try resetting your config.

    Do you think you can add mysql support in future?

    Hello, I'm getting spammed in console with these errors randomly when players play on the server:

    Can you do something with that? It's really annoying, plugin works but I cannot read anything in console because of that. Using spigot.

    Suggestion - Add a Multiplier setting so we can raise and lower all amounts of money at once by a percentage. Would save time instead of having to change all mob drop money amounts just to find what works best. Thanks for a great plugin!

    Does this support modded items as coins yet? Was a bit sad when I actually had real coins ingame but couldn't use it because any ID I used in the config that wasn't vanilla just reseted the config to gold again. Oh, and 1.7.x versions, they don't happen to work on 1.6.x do they?

    @DrakeSpirit: Go If it helps, I'm also using Multiverse-Inventories.

    I recently switched my server from Multiworld to Multiverse which I find much more configurable, I hope you're able to figure it out.

    @Killer2demon: Go

    The errors pop up because MoneyDrop couldn't find a config file for that world. I'm pretty sure this is related to the multiverse issues. I'll see if I can find a work-around.

    @bingoberraz: Go

    MoneyDrop 2.2.0 has the MoneyDrop.pickup permission node, assuming you enabled permission use in your MoneyDrop config files.

    Just received this error today in a non-creative world with disable-inventory-checks set to true. I was however in creative mode.
