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, ...).

    RaC version 1.2.0+ are compatible with MC 1.7, 1.8, 1.9 and 1.10.
    But untested below 1.9.

    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'm running the latest version of RaC(If just clicking download twice gives you that) and what I believe to be the latest version of Spigot. I'll be updating it now...

    And as for Bukkit Distro, I'm assuming Essentials counts.

    Still getting the same error. In console is says both "ERROR:

    while scanning for the next token found character '\t' that cannot start any token in "<unicode string>", line 1, column 94: ... 9org.bukkit.event.EventException at org.bukkit.plugin.java.JavaP ... ^ " and after starting, "ERROR:

    while scanning for the next token found character '\t' that cannot start any token in "<unicode string>", line 1, column 112: ... s'java.lang.NullPointerException at de.tobiyas.racesandclasses.p ... ^"

    @jazxxxxccxxxxxxxxxcxxxxx: Go
    Which version of RaC and Bukkit are you using? Also which bukkit distro?

    The plugin won't load, and yes, I made sure I installed Vault. The current error I have is "ERROR:

    mapping values are not allowed here in "<unicode string>", line 1, column 63: ... n: Plugin does not have database: true in plugin.yml ^" After running it through the YAML Parser you suggested.

    I'm having some issues with player speed. I have two races that have increased speed, and 7 others that have regular speed. However, when I switched from a race that had increased speed to one that didn't, I retained the increase. I changed to another race that had regular speed, but their speed was reduced.

    I tried setting the speed of all races afterwards to see if that would remedy the issue, but it hasn't. Any ideas?

    @Tobiyas: Go

    Okay, thanks for the info on race teams, So I would have a WarZone, where players within the same race wouldn't be able to fight, but in the wild, everyone could fight everyone. Also, I disabled channels, but they are still there.... the format is still there, the [world][Orc][Elderzz] one Im going to try to remove chat control plugin maybe that is causing it...

    Also, whenever a player join the server, this message sort of message is displayed: %&d

    Its not that exact, but something like that, cant remember on top of my head.
