This page is for the configuration of the outdated MoneyDrop version 1.
What does it do?
It does what it says on the tin: MoneyDrop drops money.
When a player or mob dies he will drop a configurable amount of virtual money (read: iConomy money) on the ground with the other loot he had.
This money can be picked up by other players just as they would pick up normal items. Instead of going into their inventory, the money will go directly into their wallet.
So how do I set this thing up?
Step 1: Make sure you've got one of the supported economy plugins set up on your server.
Step 2: Download and set up the Vault plugin.
Step 3: Download MoneyDrop.jar and place it in your plugins folder.
Step 4: Start up your server and shut it back down again.
Step 5: Edit the .yml files in plugins/MoneyDrop with your favorite texteditor.
Step 6: Start up your server and you're good to go!
Whoa there, what's all the stuff in .yml files for?
MoneyDrop creates a seperate .yml for each world you're using. They'll be named the same as the world they affect. The options in each file are the same, so if you want to use the same settings for each world, you can fill in 1 file and copy the contents to the other files.
Dropped-Value is the value of 1 money item. If you set this to 0.1 and you let a sheep drop 64 items, the player who picks up the stack will receive 6.4 money. Keep in mind that when you set dropped amounts later on, you will be setting the quantity of items dropped, not the quantity of money.
Player-Dropped-Amount is the amount of money items a player drops/keeps when he dies.
40 will cause a player to lose up to 40 money when he dies, -40 will cause a player to lose all but 40 money and 40% will cause a player to lose 40% of their money.
You can set a seperate value for each deathcause. Keep in mind that lava falls under fire, not other.
% is the actual amount of money lost, not the number of items dropped. If the money can't be fully converted into items (e.g. 14 money with a money value of 5), the grim reaper will keep the change (so only 2 items will drop, for a total of 10 money).
Dropped-Material-ID is the id of the material dropped money will look like. The default is 266 (gold bar).
Unfortunatly, materials with multiple versions such as dyes will be invisible except for the shadow they cast.
When you change this, all money that was already on the ground when you shut down the server will keep the old appearance, but can still be picked up as money.
Pickup-Chat-Notification-Enabled will send a chat message to the player with the amount of money he picked up.
Pickup-Achievement-Notification-Enabled will do the same, but in an achievement window if your server and the player is running Spout.
You can set the displayed message with Pickup-Chat-Notification-Message, Pickup-Achievement-Notification-Message and Pickup-Achievement-Notification-Title.
The word "<money>" (without the quotes) will be replaced with the picked up value.
Pickup-Sound will play a sound if your server and the player is running Spout.
Put an url like http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11950680/MoneyDrop/coin.wav here. Accepted file formats are .wav, .ogg and .midi.
Keep in mind that players will have to download and listen to this, so don't put something huge like Beethoven's 5th here!
Independent-Drops sets if the money is added to the list of mob drops or if it's dropped independant of it.
If other plugins prevent items from dropping, but you'd still like MoneyDrop to drop money, set this to true.
Mobspawner-Drops-Allowed will prevent monsters spawned from mob spawners from dropping money if this is set to false.
Mobs-Only-Drop-On-Kill will only make mobs drop money if they are finished off by a hit from a player if set to true. If set to false, mobs will always drop money on death.
The WorldGuard settings allow you to set wether or not a player/mob should drop money depending on the region it's in.
Global-Mob-Drops is the general setting wether or not mobs drop money. This will be overridden by specified regions.
Global-Player-Drops does the same, but for players.
Mob-Drop-Enabled-Regions is the list of region names where mobs will drop money.
Mob-Drop-Disabled-Regions is the list of region names where mobs won't drop money.
Player-Drop-Enabled-Regions is the list of region names where players will drop money.
Player-Drop-Disabled-Regions is the list of region names where players won't drop money.
If any of these regions overlap, the smallest region will take effect.
You can configure money drops per mob:
Dropped-Minimum is the minimum amount of money a mob will drop.
Dropped-Maximum is the maximum amount. If it's lower than the minimum amount, it'll be set to the minimum amount.
Dropped-Frequency is the chance a mob has to drop money. 1.0 is 100%, 0.5 = 50%, etc.
If Spout or WorldGuard are conflicting, you can disable MoneyDrop support for them by setting their Enabled properties to false.
How can I get my own plugins to play nice with yours?
If you're messing with player/monster drops and you don't want MoneyDrop to be affected, change Independent-Drops to true.
If you want to poke around in my plugin, the source is included in the jar. You're free to mess around with it, but give me credit.
If you want to build on my plugin, you can use dropMoney(Location location, int amount) to drop currency at that location.
You can use the getWorldSettings method to take a look at the settings for that world, so if for example you want to know the material id used in the world "world", use MoneyDrop.getWorldSettings("world").getMaterialID().
This stuff's pretty awesome, can I buy you a drink?
Something's not working right, can you help me out?
Of course, but I'll need the following information:
- How and when it happened, so I can try to replicate it on my test server
- The entire error log
- The contents of the affected world's .yml file
- A list of the plugins you're using that affect economy, item pickups or mob deaths
- The MoneyDrop version you're using
Please check if you're running the latest version of your plugins before posting.
The latest version of MoneyDrop can always be found here.
