What is RacesAndClasses?

RacesAndClasses (RaC) was made to bring the best RPG experience to Minecraft servers. You are able to customize your own classes and races, making your server a world full of adventure! RaC is inspired by the biggest MMORPG game in the world, known as World Of Warcraft.

Core Features of RaC

  • Make different races and classes
  • Every part can be customized
  • Change the way players chat
  • Change gameplay on your server significantly
  • Provide RPG experiences to the PvE and PvP environment
  • Add spells, totems and other WoW items in Minecraft, without a mod
  • Have players choose their own playstyle and gameplay

Plugins with RaC

RaC works with almost any plugin! Mcmmo, heroes, faction and towny. These are the most commonly used plugins for this plugin and they all work 100%
RaC offers plenty of configuration, for each individual server. For example some server owners love the teleport arrow for raiding, and some don't; so It's all up to you.

Developers guide

RaC is as mentioned, a customizable plugin, that also counts for custom traits.
This means, that any developer can make their own traits and make his/her server even more special!

Servers using RacesAndClasses

Servers using this plugin

Important notices

First of all: All these components can be disabled in the config!

Gravity's Updater:

For legal reasons and for uploading this plugin to Bukkit I have to mention, that the plugin has an updating service which connects to 'http://www.curseforge.com/'. This includes:

  • Checking the Version of the plugin against the newest release Version.
  • Downloading the newest Version if enabled.

Error Uploader:

Also the Plugin uses an Error Uploding Service, which connects to my Domain: www.tobiyas.tk.
This includes:

  • Reading Errors from the error.log located at plugins/RacesAndClasses/debug/error.log
  • Uploading these errors to my domain (www.tobiyas.tk)
  • The Errors are visibly ONLY to me (Tobiyas) and are regularly checked to find and fix bugs faster than via Tickets.

Hidendra's Metrics:

The plugin uses Hidendra's Metrics service and sends Metrics data of your Server to the Metrics at 'http://mcstats.org/'. This includes:

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version
    All these services are optional and can be disabled via Configuration.


If you use the config.raceMaxHealth: ... of a race, this has been removed with 1.1.7.
You now have to use config.healthbonus: ... (as in classes) instead.
You get 20 base health + race healthbonus + class health bonus.


If you use

general_saving_savePlayerDataToDB: true

Set this option to false and do a restart with the old Version. For best Use with 1.0.3 (RC 2)! This will convert all File DB related Data to YML data. If you do NOT do this, your PlayerData will be LOST!!!

If you have

general_saving_savePlayerDataToDB: false

you can safely ignore this step.

Known Bugs for Current Version (1.2.0)

Only runs on Bukkit distros using Spigot API (spigot, paper, ...).

    I noticed when the level_up_message: '&aCongratulations, &d%PLAYER%&a. You leveled up to Level &d%LEVEL%&a.' fires off it says i am 1 level higher than the placeholder in featherboard reports, its very confusing...

    can you see if you get the same result?

    I'm having an issue where if someone else is on the server, the spell menu bugs out and I can no longer see my own spells. I then start seeing the other person's menu and seeing what they're selecting.

    I'm not sure if this is a known issue or not but this seems to be one of the only (major) issues I have with the plugin that makes it essentially unusable.

    If there is any clue why this happens I'd appreciate some help.

    A few other suggestions: - A "range" option for channels. (ie.) 1 channel has 30 blocks, etc.) - Channel alias option - A channel shortcut /{channel or channel alias} {quickmessage} (does not join the channel unless you put a symbol in front or something.) - A nicking system that supports spaces: - /nick use {name (ex.) John Smith)} - /nick set {user} {name} (for mods; should be permissioned) - affects nametags - ability to have formatable nametags per group

    @Tobiyas: Go

    That sounds great! Theres a way to make a formula like Healthbonus: (%level% * 2) ? Because players got lot of damage when they levelup a lot but they dont get any healthbonus and for pvp thats bad because they can instakill.

    @Flashera: Go
    Sounds pretty usefull. I will check what is possible.

    @Illevyard: Go
    I do not think that my plugin is making pigs drop items.
    I can not find it in the code.

    @erto333: Go
    I am aware that this plugin is pretty difficult to configure. :( Sadly... But it's hard to create an easy way. I am not really good in either html, javascript, flash or other webstuff.
    There are some bugs in the plugin. Mostly they are due to not reading the FAQ part or using old versions + old CB versions.
    Still there are some Traits that are actually broken or not working correctly at the moment.
    Also I am triing to create a GUI for editing / creating Races and Classes. But i'm not good in design or GUIs. :D

    @CakeLady: Go
    The yml files for the traits are relicts from the past. They can be ignored mostly.
    PassiveAggro Trait is broken in 1.10, because the Bukkit api for that broke away (just does not work any more).
    SwimmingSpeed is a bit tricky. There is no real 'Swimming-Speed' in minecraft. Only way to increase it is giving an enchant to the boots. This may or may not work. It's a bit of fiddly and can break sometimes. I tested it, and it worked.

    I am developing everything for free and for the public. So I get no money for that. If you appriciate my work, please think about donating.

    I'd like to suggest an addition of a waterflight ability. (Ability to fly in water.)

    Also, I suggest adding a FeedAlways and FeedWater Ability

    Ive updated now from the 1.1.12 of your Plugin to the latest version (1.2.1), but the weird join-message is still there ...

    Update: I've done some tests and i found out, that the message only appears, when i choose or change my race. When i change my class no message appears (despite of the text "you are now a %class%)

    And i have another problem which i think is caused by RaC - Eventhou the droptable-option in the config is disabled, every pig which is killed droppes some Quartz ... I have no other plugIns which may cause this, so RaC must be responsible for this ... Does anyone know which option may solve this?

    Update: Ive done some tests here too, and just a minute ago a pig dropped a "Possesed Stone"; actually just a renamed stone ... And i found out, that i get those drops only in creativemode

    For everyone: This plugin is hard to config and thats why all of you get errors , i used this plugin 2 years now and i didnt find any bugs at all. It is great , im making a MMORPG server and its doing very well!

    Not all the traits you listed here have a .yml file, and they don't seem to be working? For example i want to use the PassiveAggro, SwimmingSpeed, and Vampirism traits, but none of those are working and i suspect it is because there are no yml files in the TraitConfig folder. Am I missing something?
