    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

    I can help you with something if you want it?

    can make a bat.exe that allows mysql-connector-java-5.1.6.jar
    buy it in C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\Java\jre6\lib\ext


    have you mysql databas ?

    Think a clean install has fixed the multiple spawning, but whenever (I think) I attack an NPC I get this over and over until it dies:

    Any more work going to be done on pathing and targeting? Having all these features is great, but with npcs noclipping everywhere, it doesn't work out too well.

    what are your MySQL Connector?

    CB ?

    Are the Commands for this plugin updated? j/w =)

    Evan Melvin

    It was a problem with the plugin not updating the mysql tables. Updating the db fixed it.
  14. Offline


    The commands are just not working. Running CB 556

    I don't understand because the plugin enables itself and there's no error at all. But in-game, nothing happens when I do /npcx

    OH sorry I didnt see it doesnt support permissions yet :p lmao so sorry

    Dunno if it ever will tbh there's so many permissions mods out there it just splits everyone into one mod or the other
  18. Everything is running smoth now :) Great plugin..
    I know your working realy fast but i have 1 question..
    Can i slow down the walk speed of my NPCs? My town guard with pathing moves at the speed of sound :)
  19. Figured out why it didn't work for me now. Everything was done right on my part, but my provider couldn't put the mysql connector into the base java installation, because it would adversely affect every server they hosted.

    Im going to start addressing the pathing and aggro combat/distances very soon - i just wanted to get as many systems in as possible so people could start populating content

    Create your paths now and eventually they will walk at a decent speed

    Evan Melvin

    How well is pathing supposed to be working? Sometimes the npcs will path correctly, sometimes they'll just stand there and not do anything, and sometimes their models will contort, with their heads in their chests and the like.

    Install MySQL Server on Windows
    Install MySQL WorkBench to create databases and new accounts

    Login to MySQL Workbench as the root user you created when installing MySQL Server
    create a new database called 'npcx'
    create a new user called npcx with the password 'p4ssw0rd!' - assign this user ALL privileges to the npcx database

    Add npcx.jar to your bukkit/plugins folder
    Create a bukkit/lib folder if you dont have it
    Extract the mysql connect jar file from the following zip file):
    Copy the JAR file (mysql-connector-java-5.1.6-bin.jar) from inside the zip into your bukkit/lib folder.

    Launch bukkit

    i think maybe the pitch or yaw is off

    there is also a longer delay when they reach the end of their path route - i want to make it so they will path from 1-2-3 then 3-2-1 with a delay at each point that you will set when creating the pathgroup entry

    then rework the loop so he walks just a tiny amount slowly throughout that route, atm he is warping from one spot to the other when he should be warping gradually to his destination

    and definately not 1-2-3-1 like he is doing atm

    My npcs don't seem to even complete the route; they'll get to the 3rd or 4th waypoint and then just stop.

    - I tinkered around with pathgroups and npc attack distances/chasing
  25. Great. Keep up the good work.

    could you also advise where the shop npcs cash etc are stored? Mine keep running out of money.
  26. Offline


    the npc has a dynamic cash amount it will get from selling stuff to players
    they always start with 100 i think

    - Npcs should also try to attack while pathing

    I have a question on the MySql creation, im trying to find how to create a new database. But there is no option for that. Any help would be truly appreciative.
    I have both the server and workbench installed from the links posted.
    -I worked with MySql a few years ago, and hated it.

    There we go, tidied up the front post :D

    Create a new database in MySQL Workbench
    In work bench create a new connection on the left under SQL Development using your user/pass (probably root) then on the top left click Add Schema, just name 'npcx' then press Apply

    Create a new user in MySQL Workbench
    Now come out of SQL Development and go to the right of workbench and into Server Administration, connect again using the details above and click Users and Privileges on the left - now click Add Account in the bottom left and fill in the details : npcx for the username, p4ssw0rd! for the password and then press Apply

    Now goto the schema privileges tab above select npcx on the user list on the left and click Add Entry click Schemas matching pattern or name and select npcx, press OK

    Why do you need to create a ''npcx'' user for the database if you can use ''root''? It changes something?

    you dont ever want to have it login as root
