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.

Latest Features

SignShop v2.10.0

  • Added !cooldownminutesleft, !cooldownhoursleft, !cooldowndaysleft, and !cooldownyearsleft for use in config messages
  • Added support for new types of written books introduced with Minecraft 1.8 (read known caveats below)
  • Changed how XP is calculated in SignShop because it was changed in Minecraft (this means it will be calculated incorrectly for versions of Minecraft prior to 1.8)

  • Fixed rounding of prices to be more accurate
  • Fixed worth not working together with Sell and Buy pricemultipliers.
  • Fixed invalid shop problem when sign breaks and doesn't send an event
  • Fixed config not properly parsing integers, meaning you could only enter doubles for pricemultipliers
  • Fixed a problem with async tasks when reloading the plugin
  • Updated API calls to PlotMe and Worldguard 6

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 :-) ).

    @Flattery103: Go

    There is a way to do that, but it's not automagic. There's two ways to do it. the first way is if you want multiple signs (to have multiple prices), and the second way is if you just want one sign (with the same price every time they rank up).

    For multiple signs, what you will want to do is create [Restricted] signs for each of your [Promote] signs. You can use a [Restricted] sign to list permission groups on lines 2, 3, and 4. When you link a [Restricted] sign to any other sign, only the listed groups may use the other sign. This way you will have [Restricted] signs for all of your [Promote] signs, and can list the permission groups allowed to rank up.

    The other way involves creating a custom sign in the SignShop config. The custom sign will run the command from your permission plugin that promotes players along the ladder. For help with creating signs that run commands, you can check out the SignShop Quick Reference.

    Create sell signs so people can sell things and pay them money for those things.

    Is there a way to make signshop [Promote] follow the promotion ladder? Right now I have several classes and the ladders are setup in pex, but with signshop, if they have enough money, they can just skip all the ranks and buy the top rank.

    Thanks for the great plugin

    Hook your land protection plugin into SignShop ;-) We have a nice API.

    The problem with the plugin is that everyone can click with a redstone on anyone's chest, link it to a sign and steal all the stuff out of it. That's because we are using our own land protection plugin.

    Any way to solve this issue?

    @Ted20012001: Go

    You totally can. All you have to do is put the name of your rank (aka permission group) on the second line of the sign, and put a price on the fourth line like this...


    And as long as you have a permission group called "VIP" it will add them to that group if they use the sign. Check out a list of all of the default signs here if you need more info, and feel free to ask any other questions you might have.
