What is RacesAndClasses?

RacesAndClasses (RaC) was made to bring the best RPG experience to Minecraft servers. You are able to customize your own classes and races, making your server a world full of adventure! RaC is inspired by the biggest MMORPG game in the world, known as World Of Warcraft.

Core Features of RaC

  • Make different races and classes
  • Every part can be customized
  • Change the way players chat
  • Change gameplay on your server significantly
  • Provide RPG experiences to the PvE and PvP environment
  • Add spells, totems and other WoW items in Minecraft, without a mod
  • Have players choose their own playstyle and gameplay

Plugins with RaC

RaC works with almost any plugin! Mcmmo, heroes, faction and towny. These are the most commonly used plugins for this plugin and they all work 100%
RaC offers plenty of configuration, for each individual server. For example some server owners love the teleport arrow for raiding, and some don't; so It's all up to you.

Developers guide

RaC is as mentioned, a customizable plugin, that also counts for custom traits.
This means, that any developer can make their own traits and make his/her server even more special!

Servers using this plugin

Important notices

First of all: All these components can be disabled in the config!

Gravity's Updater:

For legal reasons and for uploading this plugin to Bukkit I have to mention, that the plugin has an updating service which connects to 'http://www.curseforge.com/'. This includes:

  • Checking the Version of the plugin against the newest release Version.
  • Downloading the newest Version if enabled.

Error Uploader:

Also the Plugin uses an Error Uploding Service, which connects to my Domain: www.tobiyas.tk.
This includes:

  • Reading Errors from the error.log located at plugins/RacesAndClasses/debug/error.log
  • Uploading these errors to my domain (www.tobiyas.tk)
  • The Errors are visibly ONLY to me (Tobiyas) and are regularly checked to find and fix bugs faster than via Tickets.

Hidendra's Metrics:

The plugin uses Hidendra's Metrics service and sends Metrics data of your Server to the Metrics at 'http://mcstats.org/'. This includes:

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version
    All these services are optional and can be disabled via Configuration.


If you use the config.raceMaxHealth: ... of a race, this has been removed with 1.1.7.
You now have to use config.healthbonus: ... (as in classes) instead.
You get 20 base health + race healthbonus + class health bonus.


If you use

general_saving_savePlayerDataToDB: true

Set this option to false and do a restart with the old Version. For best Use with 1.0.3 (RC 2)! This will convert all File DB related Data to YML data. If you do NOT do this, your PlayerData will be LOST!!!

If you have

general_saving_savePlayerDataToDB: false

you can safely ignore this step.

Known Bugs for Current Version (1.1.9)

FireballTrait explodes too early.
Player saving data gets lost sometimes.

Known Bugs for Alpha (1.1.10) / Latest Spigot

Latest Spigot implementation needs a quickfix: 'database: true' needs to be added in the plugin.yml in the RacesAndClasses.jar

    Can't seem to get backstab to work in game. Console doesn't show any errors on the string but doesn't seem to work when I right click or shift+right click at a target.

    @FrostwingPheonix: Go

    As much as I can remember, I opened the .jar file with winrar and extracted the permissions.yml off it. I added database=true and saved it and just dragged it while the winrar window is opened.

    How am I to make the database become true without access to the jar's innards? Could you not reupload?

    @heknt90: Go

    Do you mean the GlobalChannel? If so its set by default in the config. you might be able to change the name of the channel in the channels.yml config file. I dont know if this will work I have not tried it.

    In the subject of channel I wish we were able to just add the tag and not have to have the channels on in order to see the race tag in chat.

    How to change default chat channel to Local?

  • Avatar of SirCongress SirCongress May 02, 2016 at 16:32 UTC - 0 likes


    Thats easy! :) go to your races or classes folder and open one of your races.
    under your setup traits for your races or classes add the Description string as such:

    description: String (optional) -> Replaces the default description of a trait with your own.

    this is how your format should look:

      damage: 4
      range: 10
      description: Your custom description here rlphlaw.

    Love the plugin it is wonderful. I had seen where you could block out all the traits and stuff from showing up on the screen when you hover over the class or race icons in the selection and that it could be replaced with a description of your own. Useing ver. 1.1.12 spigot 1.9.2. Can't find how this was done and cannot remember. any help would be appreciated.

    Great Plugin but I have some trouble with the saving system. Some of my member, the races was lost when I reload my server. All the armor they wear will turn back to the inventory, but if they get full inventory. All the armor were disappeared. Please fix this, thanks a lot.

    Anyway. Great jobs.

    A big thank you for fixing the saving system but now I have an another problem - people won't spawn at their race spawn after death. I have tested this several times, none of the times it has worked. Everything is as it has to be in the config file too (everything that needs to be set true is set to true in racespawn section). I do remember it used to work in one of the previous versions. Sadly I am unable to give more information. Any help will be appreciated!
