Version 1.3.1

A simple, lightweight plugin, allowing your players to pay to switch ranks on a pre-determined track. You can configure a different track of ranks by which your players can progress on, and define a price for each rank.

This plugin is dependent upon Vault.


Download the latest version of the plugin here. Put the file in your server's plugins folder. When you start/reload your server, the configuration file will be created automatically.

Additionally, this plugin requires Vault and an economy and permissions plugin compatible with Vault.

Then, you need to edit the configuration which will be inside your /plugins/rankup/ folder under the name 'config.yml.' Follow the configuration guide to configure the plugin.

Once you have configured the plugin to your liking, type /rankup reload.

Rankup Signs: To create a Rankup sign, simply enter "[Rankup]" ( without the quotes ) on the first line of a sign. Do not add any other text to the sign. When you right click the sign, you will rankup as if you had entered the /rankup command.


  • /rankup - Rank up to the next available rank.
  • /rankup version or /rankup v - Check the version of the plugin currently running.
  • /rankup reload or /rankup r - Reload the configuration.


  • rankup.* - Grant all rank up permissions.
  • rankup.rankup - Ability to do /rankup ( Not /rankup v or /rankup r, they require seperate permissions)
  • rankup.version - Ability to do /rankup version or /rankup v
  • rankup.reload - Ability to do /rankup reload or /rankup r
  • rankup.sign - Ability to create and remove Rankup signs.

    For those of you who are having problems with this plugin, downgrade your Vault to 1.6.4, the author of this plugin needs to update it.

    Can we use this plugin to rankup with an item in inventory? Instead of currency to rankup, can the plugin check the player's inventory for a specific item, and if they have enough of it, they can rankup?

    @MrEpic2003: Go

    I meant a server log of what happens in console when you do the command and the error comes up (What I'm asking would only include the startup log if it had an error on startup, otherwise, no need to copy that part if it enables fine)

    Include a server log and your bukkit / spigot version, and your rankup version, and then we can help you.

    This is your permissions system. Try to mirror them if it has that option.

    Could you add an API for things like: Current Rank, Next Rank, Next Rank Cost, etc.?
