Sentry for Citizens2

Sentry for Citizens2

Sentry is a character plugin for the NPC plugin Citizens2. With Sentry, NPC's can be set to guard areas or act as bodyguards. Hostile targeting, retaliation, and a variety of options and stats allow a Sentry NPC to be customized to almost any guarding or combat situation.


Sentries Can:

  • Attack monsters, players, and groups automatically. Sentry also has built-in support for Factions, Towny, War and SimpleClans
  • Kill, and be killed by, players, monsters, and the environment.
  • Guard locations, paths, players, or other NPCs.
  • Use ranged or melee weapons. Shoot arrows, fireballs, snowballs, eggs, lightning, and potions with deadly accuracy.
  • Be configured with stats such as Strength, Health, Armor, Speed, Range and even Night Vision!
  • Ride mounts!
  • Work with Denizen to become Bosses and Quest NPCs that run scripts upon death.


A full list of commands and options is available on the Citizens 2 Wiki


Sentry makes a config.yml in the plugins/Sentry folder on first load. Use this to tailor Sentry to your server. You can:

  • Set defaults for new sentries
  • Change or disable the item used for various attack types
  • Add potion effects like slow or blindness to certain Sentry weapons.
  • Add armor, strength and speed buffs to armor and weapons for Sentries.
  • Set critical hit chances and messages.

The config.yml is commented with instructions.

    I need some help please, I am running a spigot server and trying to run this plugin but whenever I do /trait sentry I get this error "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: net/minecraft/server/v1_8_R2/Packet" can anyone shine some light on this and please help me. I would love to use this plugin and not have to worry about this problem. Please help, thank you

    OK now works. I can confirm the plugin works fine in Spigot 1.8.3 if you download the jar that says: "Compatible for MC 1.8" in the changelog.

    Mmmmm that could be possible as I didn't restart the server at all (just did plugman reload several times), let me check it and I'll tell you :P

    I have tried the other jars, when I do /trait sentry It said "Added sentry successfully" but then it showed me this error in the console (I assure you that my server is running Spigot 1.8.3):

    @pokekart2014: Go please read anything ever sometime. The downloads for 1.8 aren't on Bukkitdev, but they still exist man.

    Any chance of 1.8 or later support?
    This plugin looks great, and I hope it gets updated soon...

    public void onEnable() {
    getLogger().info("Bringing out Rex the Test Dog...");
    getLogger().info("Feeding him...");
    getLogger().info("Reasurring him...");
    getLogger().info("Sending Rex the Test Dog...");
    getLogger().info("Buying new Rex...");
    getLogger().info("Plugin intialization complete.");

    @sergisala: Go

    Your server is 1.8, not 1.8.3. Either update your server or downdate Sentry.

    Then you downloaded the wrong version. Actually read things and find the correct one.
