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.

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

    another problem i've run into is that it only does it per world, e.g. you do /rankup in our factions world you will only get your rank in that world, not even the nether or anything just the world you used the command in

    I have made the group in group manager for every single rank, and it says that "There is not a default ladder configured!" What did I do wrong?


    1. Default is the ladder that uses /rankup
    2. All other ladders use /rankup <ladder> Default:
    3. DefaultPermission is not required either now. DefaultPermission: paidranks.ladder.epicladder
    4. RequiredRank is not required.
    5. You can remove this line but if you do
    6. Any rank can rank to this(Could cause downgrading in the rank)
    7. RequiredRank: Default were removing it for this one to show it works Ranks: A: Price: 0 B: Price: 50000 C: Price: 100000 D: Price: 250000 E: Price: 1000000 F: Price: 2500000 G: Price: 7000000 H: Price: 12000000 I: Price: 17000000 J: Price: 30000000 K: Price: 65000000 L: Price: 100000000 M: Price: 200000000 N: Price: 300000000 O: Price: 400000000 P: Price: 550000000 Q: Price: 750000000 R: Price: 1000000000 S: Price: 2500000000 T: Price: 7000000000 U: Price: 12000000000 V: Price: 20000000000 W: Price: 30000000000 X: Price: 50000000000 Y: Price: 75000000000 Z: Price: 100000000000

    When some one does /rankup they go up a rank no problem (from rank "a" to rank "b"). They then do /rankup again and they get a message "you been ranked up to rank b" and they get ranked to b again and get charged. is there any fixes for this or anything im missing? apart from that every thing works PREFECT!

    Make sure you reply to the message and not just post. I have a memory like a gold fish. I will forget!

    I love how this plugin works but I've been having a problem that makes it unusable for me. When you first join my server, you spawn in a seperate world called tutorial. It teaches you how to play and explains how to rankup. When you right click the sign, you will rank up, but it only adds the rank to that specific world. So when you leave the tutorial world, you're back to the first rank. It's the same if you go into the nether, rank up, then go back to the overworld. Hopefully someone can help?

    EDIT: I'm starting to think this is a problem with PermissionsEx. Anyone else running PermissionsEx with this happening...?
