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 know is too much ask but you think you can support cauldron servers? In my 1.7.10 server when the sentry dies, this keep attacking his fow, I mean; him respawn inmediatly after death, but "something" invisible keep attacking the enemy who kill him and then my server crash X_X. Thanks a lot I hoe you can make this, your plugin is awesome : 3

    I checked the next last version out and that seems to work better at first. Though as soon as i add waypoints to them the server crashes. Where do you want my error log?

    @Quaziz: Go

    Try the various version available on in the "Updates" box, there should be multiple for 1.7.10 if I remember right... if none of them work, grab the most recent one and post a startup log from running it.

    Note that none of the recommend version are flipping 1.7.9, which is, if you can't tell, the /wrong/ version.

    Hi! I use citizens-2.0.13-1.7.10-Cauldron-B2.jar for Cauldron 1.7.10 and have got that and denizen working on the server. Those are my favorite plugins togather with Sentry. I was converting everything on my bukkit server to the latest cauldron (spigotMC) server. The only plugin i have'nt got to work is Sentry (R: Sentry 1.8.2 for CB 1.7.9-R0.1 Jun 03, 2014). Citizens 2.0 did'nt work at first, than i downloaded the Cauldron version that works fine. So i was wondering if its possible for you to make a modification for us hwo uses spigot|Cauldron, or whatever fix there needs to be? Thank you for your time and a great plugin!

    @InTheSavaGe: Go

    Your Vault and Permissions versions are mismatched and incompat with each other, update them both to latest for best chance at functionality. Nothing to do with Sentry.

    Can you add health on respawn or something?

    If i give my npc 2000 Health they start after a respawn with 40 health and need too regenerate
