About Custom Professions


Have you ever wanted to have your own custom skills like in MCMMO but found out it was all hard-coded into the plugin making it impossible to make your own without coding your own? This plugin aims to change that. You take a config file generated by this plugin and follow the example provided. When you type /cpro it displays your custom skills you've configured in a stat window similar to how /mcstats in MCMMO does.


This plugin is meant for using with specific plugins that allow console commands to be executed. Here are the commands as follows:

  • /cpro - Displays all configured skill names in a window. Type it again to make it vanish.
  • /cpro <skill> - As an example, type /cpro Weaponsmithing and it will tell you what you will get next level. This is according to the config.
  • /cpro <skill> exp - Shows in a window the status of the skill typed in.
  • /cpro <show|hide> - Toggles exp gain/loss messages. Hidden by default. Hidden skills always hidden.
  • /cpa <player> <skill> <exp> - This command is only for the console. It is the only way to raise a player's skill exp by an amount. Look below for some ideas to use this plugin with. The key is to be creative.
  • /cpd <player> <skill> <exp> - This command is only for the console. Decrease exp command.

Plugins To Try Custom Professions With

This is a list of some of the plugins that allow console commands:

  • Buycraft -> Players want to get more skill points in donation packages? This would be the way to do it!

EssentialsChat bug with Lorelocks is now fixed in 0.5.0 of CustomProfessions

If you find any plugins that also work in combination with Custom Professions, leaving a comment is quite welcome. Also be sure to comment if you find that a plugin on the tested plugins list is not working for you.

Are you a plugin developer and believe your plugin should be featured on the list? Be sure to comment below with any cool features that can be used with Custom Professions and we'll add it to this list!

This is a list of plugins that will work very well for the example skills provided in the generated config.yml:

- Craftbook in particular has a feature called CustomCrafting and it allows you to run a command after you make an item (pulling it out of the results box). Since the only way to add a level to a skill is by the console command listed above, this is actually very useful for making custom crafting skills possible. You will also need to take advantage of the custom permission nodes that crafting recipes can require of a player to have in order to make the recipe. You can find the wiki page here

- Skript lets you write mini-plugins. If you wanted to make a magic skill system, this might be the best way to do it. First, you make your config for Custom Professions and setup the levels for each tier of magic that you want a player to reach. This is where it might get tough because you have to learn how to use Skript for this but it will end up being worth it. With Skript, you can store variables, write new commands, make new permissions, and a lot more. You're going to have read up on it here

There are no permissions required for Custom Professions but the skill exp editing command is console only so you should have no problems.

Upcoming Features

  • Waiting for a Recommended Build to update.
  • Attempting to add perms for each custom made.
