AEco - Lightweight Economic, Shops and Locks

New Version 2.0 and up (2.1)!

The complete AEco code has been rewritten, its lighter than ever before! Each part of the plugin is now more independent, this means that when you disable a part of the plugin it will not run in the background, it will be completely gone! Also the item price list has been updated to Minecraft 1.1 thanks to Flagiata.

AEco a must have for every survival based server!

AEco is a three in one plug-in, it features: Locks, Shops and a small Economy. Every part of this plugin can be disabled if you wish, also every message can be customized. AEco works with the default Bukkit permissions plugin.

Locks can be used to lock chests, furnaces and dispensers. Players can create locks by clicking with nothing in their hand on a lockable item, when a lock is created players can unlock and lock it by clicking on it. Unlocking and locking can only be done by the player who created the lock, removing a lock is very simple the owner of the lock should click on it with dirt (configurable) in his hand to remove the lock.

The Economy part of this plugin makes sure players have wallets an can make payments, this is used by the shops part of the plugin for example. Admins can change the value of wallets. Players can (when enabled) sell items to the server, using the prices.dsp file server admins can set prices that should be used when selling items to the server.

Shops can be used to sell items to other players, to create a shop a player should take the item that he wants to sell in to his hand, then he should type the following command: /shop create 5 150. The first number in this command is the amount of items he wants to sell, the second number is the price for each item he wants. When a player uses this command nothing will happen because he should click on a chest to actual create the shop.
