Version 1.3.2

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 works with any Vault compatible permissions plugin, such as PermissionsEx and GroupManager.

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.

    Hey make sure that you have all the caps as the same as you do in your permissions file like if your permission file has a lowercase i but your rankup config has a capital I then you need to fix that

    Hey im using permissionEx and when I do /rankup it changes the prefix and says {name} has ranked up to {Ward} but if I do /rankup again it ranks me up to the same rank and I figgered out that it wasnt updating my rank just my prefix so if I ranked up from A to B I would have B prefix but only A commends someone help!

    I would recommend using the plugin AutoRank for that.

    Is there an option to allow people to /rankup after a certain amount of playtime?
