    Version: See thread title for bukkit compatibility (usually RB)
    Test Server:


    Implements everquest style npc spawngroups using the npc library allowing you to make persistent npcs/rare npcs spawn around your map. Npcs will fight back if attacked and even talk on right click. They will sell items and can even have loot assigned and be given factions and paths to walk and npc trading

    Install / Changelog / Commands / README

    All of this has now moved to


    I will be updating NPCX in the future with a rewrite for 1.9 bot functionality

    Brutal fix for the above 2 posts, found it by dinking around with the file.



    As long as update=true in that file it will attempt to update/create/repair the db and then set update back to false, but the database will create now.

    Only thought to try changing that when it kept mentioning that it was trying to upgrade; dawned on me that it might be trying to upgrade the database as opposed to recreating it because it didn't realize it hadn't been installed yet :)

    I'm still messing around with this, is there a command to remove an npc from a spawngroup?

    If not we need one :)

    I'm running craftbukkit 556
    No startup errors.

    npcx commands seem to be working, I did the little get you started "Guard" test in the help, and it seems to all work, except no NPC ever appears.

    Any ideas?

    ok fixed a big issue with new users who didnt have any existing tabales :D

    Also aware of a bug atm where you need to restart the server to see npcs merchant id's updated in game

    Fixed ><

    Reasonable enough! Thanks for the response. It's amazing how much you improve the plugin in just a couple of days.

    Why do i get a "Your name is right but your player is wrong" when i rightclick a npc i created, by the name of
    "danireh" if thats relevant.

    Nevermind, i used "'s" in a reply for a triggerword, deleted it in the database and reloaded, works fine now.

    I made a guard drop some stuff to test it out, but when I try to place the blocks, they just disappear.

    I'm talking more of a record as it is happening. So like a command /npcx path recordstart and /npcx path recordstop. Granted this would probably make some huge tables as it would end up making a row for any deviance from a completely straight path

    I have a few questions/bugs:

    • If you attack an npc and it has a path set to it, it appears that the npc will fight towards the next pathing point but also try to move towards you at the same time, resulting in a jerky movement. I suggest that the npc only chase you for X blocks. However I also suggest that you are able to define "land" for certain factions, where these npcs or guards will chase you until you are out of the defined faction's area.
    • If you attack an npc and log out, it will forget about you.
    • How do you set "faction points" or in other words, if I kill 5 guards, that will decrease my faction points by 5 and if it's lower than a certain number, that faction will always attack you on sight, just like EQ?

    Hi mixx! I updated the npcx version today, still having that invisible npcs bug. Also I noticed it was happening on your server too, you told me it was maybe related to the invis minecraft glitch! Anyway hope you find a fix ^^

    You mentioned about "quest chat".
    How does that work,

    Im thinking of getting uQuest from bukkit.

    Would i be able to have an NPC from this plugin give a Quest from uQuest?

    SUGGESTION : Instead of ending the NPC chat with (x Target Cleared) ..perhaps the chat can just end when the player moves 2 blocks away from NPC. That way we can bounce from NPC to NPC without a click interuption. On another note NPC's can even say "well..." or "were you needing something?" if you take too long to respond back to them after initiating the conversation.

    I was really excited for this until I saw "requires iconomy"

    Is that true? I just dont want to go through the whole installation process to epic fail. In what sense does it require iconomy?
  22. One other bug I noticed is when you are killed by a npc, most of the time your inventory does not drop on the ground but just vanishes and everything you had is lost. That's somehow inconvenient =/

    Has anyone made this to work with MineOS? I can't get it working for the life of me.

    Just installed it for testing purposes.

    [INFO] * Problem during update to version 1.01 * [INFO] * Do you have entries in merchant_entries? *
    after editing the properties-file for the mysql connection.

    Wait, what? I just installed this plugin, of course I have NO entries in merchant_entries and not even the old tables.
    What is it trying to update? It created the tables though.

  25. Did you try the below? about 20 posts up.

    I have a problem with Merchant funtion.

    When i want to buy something from my merchant npc it says

    I'm Sorry. I'm rather busy right now.
    Sorry, looks like that item just sold.

    but there is the item in stock.... anyone an idea?

    mixxit, just one problem i realised when playing on ur server, some of the NPC's wer invisible and when you attack them they dnt react as if they have been hit which is weird.

    Here is a suggestion : add a field "skin" in the npc table, and choose your npc's skin...

    exemple: i have a imperial guard npc, and i want a royal skin...

    Is it possible? :)
