SignShop 2 Logo
SignShop allows you to set up physical shops by punching a chest with your items you want to sell, then punching a sign (while holding redstone dust). It's easy to set up, and even easier to customize!

This plugin requires Vault and collects Metrics.

Extending SignShop with other Plugins

  • Uses Vault API, so it works with all standard economies (EssentialsEco, iConomy, BOSEconomy, Gringotts, and more) and permission plugins (Permissions 3, bPermissions, PEX, GroupManager, PermissionsBukkit, zPermission (and defaults to OP permissions, if you don't want to use a permission system)).
  • Supports LWC, Lockette, Deadbolt, WorldGuard, Grief Prevention, PlotMe, PreciousStones, LoreLocks, and Residence for chest / sign protection, but SignShop also has built-in sign protection.
  • Use with SignShopGuardian to save your inventory when you die.
  • Use with SignShopHotel to allow players to rent rooms for a period of time.
  • Supports dynmap to show shop locations.
  • Buy and sell custom made guns and weapons using Crackshot. (P.S. Crackshot is awesome!)
  • Supports alternate worlds using Multiverse.
  • Supports the Notifications plugin. SignShop will give a notification whenever a sign is created. This message can be customized in the config.
  • Display the items SignShop is selling by clicking half slabs and using ShowCaseStandalone.
  • Support for custom sign colors using SignColours.
  • Make SignShop run commands for all players online using WildcardCommands.
  • Charge a fee to use, and remotely operate Machinas with MachinaCraft.
  • Can use Towny banks to fund your shops using custom Blocks (Thanks ryvix!).
  • Can restrict shops to WorldGuard regions with the "allow-shop" flag, or Towny shop plots
  • Can convert ChestShop signs to SignShop format by just punching them with redstone.

Example SignShop

This is an example of how to set up a [Buy] sign with SignShop. The sign above is linked to a chest containing items. In this example, it will sell an enchanted pickaxe for 600 Waffles (Waffles are our server's currency :-) ).

    Even if we were to implement your suggestion, how would SignshopHotel guess which room you mean by "/room"?

    @nathnana2002: Go

    There are many plugins that allow you to even set multiple homes. I'm sure what you are asking for can already be done.

    Well I guess I wont get that to happen. Players would rather have 2 homes for dedicated use instead of 1 for a room and 1 for whatever they want :/

    Take a look at our FAQ for the answers to many commonly asked questions. There IS a bug at the moment that prevents you from destroying your chest though. It has been fixed in our dev build.

    Is there an Admin Shop? I looked at the video and all the commands. I might have over looked it but I can't seem to find it.

    If there isn't this would be a sweet Feature! BTW love this plugin!

    @nathnana2002: Go

    You can make it so a hotel sign will automatically run a command like /sethome for a player, then they use /home to get back to their hotel using another plugin such as Essentials. We are unlikely to implement teleports into SignShopHotel, as there are several other plugins that do this, and SignShop signs can run those commands.

    I had a good Idea for SignShopHotel. Can you add a command so when they do something like /room, they get teleported to the [Hotel] Sign? (Like right in front of it or something) Thanks!

    @Syhedghog: Go

    There is no way to queue records, because all of the audio is handled by the Minecraft client, not the server. We have no way to know when a song has ended or anything like that. The only thing we can do is tell the client to play a song, This is a limitation of Bukkit, unfortunately.

    JukeBox: my server has a texture pack that has different audio files for jukebox records, so i thought of laying 12 jukebox signs but i discovered if 2 or more people request diffrent songs it wont add it to a queue it will plat them at the same time >:(
