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

    Hey Tobiyas! Awesome plugin man really :)

    Im probably gonna ask some more questions in future haha but to start with , Im attempting to make a Race that is not only immune to Lava and Fire but doesnt Catch on Fire (So they can see) and also that moves quickly and swims quickly though lava only.

    This is what I got, it does it all but the movement and no fire effect im trying to achieve , cheers :)

    traits: SwimmingSpeedTrait: level: 3 onlyInLava: true LavaResistanceTrait: operation: '-' value: 100 FireResistanceTrait: operation: '-' value: 100 MovementSpeedTrait: value: 1 onlyInLava: true

    @all, sorry for the late replies. I'm really buisy at the moment.

    @meizme: Go @meizme: Go @meizme: Go
    The problem is, that I do not own FeatherBoard. So I have no possibility to check that.
    I asked the author of FeatherBoard, but he does not want to give it to people not paying.
    I did some changes to the next version that hopefully fix that as long as

    gui_scoreboard_disableAllOutputs: true

    is set.

    @heknt90: Go Investigating.

    @HutspotMuch: Go Yes! Use this:

      description: &2This race is awsome!#n&4It can do cool stuff!
        hideConfigInGui: true
        hideTraitsInGui: true

    Rest as usual. This will hide the complete config of the race / class + it's traits.
    The description is then displayed instead. '#n' does a new line. &1-f are color codes.

    @heknt90: Go Command is: /raclevel <player> <lvl/exp> <amount>

    I am developing everything for free and for the public. So I get no money for that. If you appriciate my work, please think about donating.

    has anyone else had the issue where Races and classes is breaking Featherboard?

  • Avatar of meizme meizme Jun 20, 2016 at 22:10 UTC - 0 likes

    Is there anyone else having the featherboard issue? I was hoping someone could tell me how they fixed it if they had, or have someone send me a copy of their FB and RaC configs so i can try and see if they work for me.

    Thank you.

    As I stated back on the 30th of May without any reply, enabling Races and Classes make Featherboard STOP WORKING... i can remove the RaC jar and Featherboard works again. Add it back and it BLOWS UP, and makes fb appear for 1 second then disappear.

    Can you PLEASE address this.

    My config.yml ------

    gui_scoreboard_disableAllOutputs: true

    gui_enable_permanent_scoreboard: false

    gui_level_useMCLevelBar: false

    gui_actionbar_format: ''

    I tried all combinations of on and off for the above

    Installing plugman fixed the output issue, BUT breaks NPC's

    I am running the Last build of 1.9.4 Paperspigot, but also tried on last build of Regular Spigot I have the latest Featherboard = 3.11.0 (tried 5 revisions down 1 at a time) and the latest RaC = 1.1.13 (tried all 1.9 revisions 1 at a time)

    Some bug with prefix of race in TAB. When I use "races_takeRaceWhenNoRace" and change value of "races_defaultrace_tag" or "races_defaultrace_name", all players after reload takes prefix of first loged in player. For example, if First have a race "Werewolf", next players will have prefix of this race. Second and other players can change race and get right prefix, but after reload their prefix will be "Werewolf" again.
