If you enjoy my plugins and appreciate the support I provide, then please consider providing some support of your own. Donating even a tiny amount keeps me motivated and makes me feel loved so go ahead and donate!

    HeroBounty adds a whole new dimension to Minecraft PvP. For anyone who has ever been killed by another player and wanted them to pay, but just didn't want to spend the time hunting them down, here is your answer! HeroBounty adds a public hit list to your server, allowing players to anonymously post hits against their enemies for a reward paid out of their pocket. Other players can take on the role of bounty hunter, competing to fulfill bounties and earn the reward.

    HeroBounty is a plugin originally developed for the HeroCraft server and is now officially being released to the public.


    • Anonymously issue hits against your enemies!
    • Become a bounty hunter and kill for pay!
    • Economy support! Earn in-game money for completing hits! Supports any economy that Register supports.
    • And more!

    The available commands are summarized in the screenshot below. Any parameters in <angled brackets> are required. Any <id#> parameters require the position of the item in the relevant bounty list.


    1. Creating a bounty
    The /bounty new command posts a new bounty against the player and for the amount provided. A percentage based cut is taken out of the supplied amount; the remaining money is posted as the reward for the hit.


    2. Viewing available bounties
    The /bounty list command lists all available bounties and their associated rewards. Bounties are sorted from highest to lowest reward. This list keeps both the bounty issuer and the target anonymous. You will not discover the target of the bounty until you accept it.


    3. Accepting a bounty
    To accept a bounty, use the /bounty accept command and give it the id# of the bounty you'd like. Accepting a bounty incurs a small fee - usually 5% of the award value. Once accepted, you will be given the target's name and the duration of your issued bounty will start to count down. If you fail to kill the target in the given duration, the bounty will be retracted and you will have to purchase it again to continue.


    4. Finding a target
    To help in finding targets, use the /bounty locate command. This command displays a list of your targets and their approximate. Target locations are rounded to the nearest 100 blocks by default, but this value can be changed in the configuration. These locations are only meant to give you a rough idea of where your target is. It is up to you as the bounty hunter to actually track down the player and complete the hit.


    5. Completing a bounty
    If you manage to kill a player for whom you have purchased a bounty for, you will be given the reward associated with the hit. The server will be publicly alerted of your success. The target (now dead) will receive a small monetary penalty - usually 5% of the award value.


    1. Download the latest version of the plugin from the link at the top of this page.
    2. Extract the contents of the archive to your /plugins folder.
    3. Open /plugins/HeroBounty/config.yml and configure to your liking.
    4. Save the modified file and start your server.

    All of the settings related to HeroBounty are stored in your /plugins/HeroBounty/data.yml file in YAML format. If you are unfamiliar with YAML, simply follow the pattern found in the config.yml file in the archive you downloaded. The comments in this default file, prefaced with a #, describe what each of the configuration options do.

    If found, HeroBounty will make use of TheYeti's Permissions plugin. The three available permission nodes are described below:
    • - allows use of /bounty new
    • herobounty.accept - allows use of /bounty accept
    • herobounty.locate - allows use of /bounty locate
    • herobounty.list - allows use of /bounty list
    • herobounty.untargettable - makes a player unable to be targetted by bounties
    A Message to Users

    Thanks for all your support! I will do my best to keep this plugin updated and bug free. If you have any issues or feature requests, feel free to either leave a message here or find me on IRC.

    Thanks to Nijikokun for help with making the plugin display nicely formatted messages!

    Using latest CB RB (1000) and latest iconomy. It looks like you didn't change the version number correctly also? This is using the version that Kainzo just posted.

    Am not getting that at all with icon 5.01 and latest RB - sorry to say! What you *could* try is manually updating the register.jar in case your plugins didnt auto-update it, maybe that solves it.

    Oops. I guess I have to regen the config file? I still had the old one in there. I'll take it out and see what happens.

    Edit: It's not generating a config file.

    Does/can this work with essentials economy? I'd like a bounty system for my server but I don’t use iconnermy. o.o
  16. Offline


    Just use iConomy (really not hard at all) or BOSEconomy or any other register supported economy plugin :)
  17. Offline


    WRONG! The correct answer was "No, no essentials economy doesn't work with HeroBounty." Ended up having to test it myself. I don't want to use iConomy because it far too complicated for the job I want it to do and why would I want to download 5 to 10 extra plugins to do what one plugin is currently doing for me. Its a shame but I guess I'll have to do without HeroBounty. I don't want to reinstall iConomy, get a plugin for sign shops, replace all my admin commands with new plugins, get a new jail system etc etc etc just to get this one extra plugin.

    I miss FayConomy... god that was a good plugin.

    Wow way to be unappreciative of help, Essentials btw while being easy to use is IMO one of the worst plugins as it doesn't play nice with many other plugins. You have other options as well as iConomy like BOSEconomy and if your other shop and jail plugins don't support iConomy or BOSE then they weren't written very well. I doubt you need 10 more plugins to replace all your stuff. =/

    I can't be unappreciative of your help if you didn't help me at all. Give straight answers instead of telling someone the answer to something they didn't ask. I've never had a problem with Essentials, I've been using it for a year without any problems and from my experience it hasn't clashed with any other plugins. Essentials caters to all my admin command needs as well as supplying simple economy features that is easy for newcomers to understand, as well as that it has all the sign shops and stuff that I need included in it too. I mean having to replace it would mean getting new plugins for the admin commands, which would mean getting separate plugins for mute, vanish, jail because they are hardly ever included in one package, a sign shop plugin that works with iConomy which wouldn't be as simple as the Essentials sign shops along with other things, I'm sure it'd easy get up to ten.

    I like what I have and ripping out my whole system for a bounty plugin doesn't seem like a viable option to me is all.

    Its just a shame it doesn't work with Essentials is all. I'm not going to cry over it, just not going to be able to add it into my server. I've lived long enough without it so far so I think I'll live now.

    Can you add an option to not announce when someone accepts or posts a bounty? I would prefer if the person being hunted not get warned.
  22. Offline


    Well I thought you asking if it worked with essentials and me telling you EXACTLY what it works with IS helpful. I'm not gonna run a test myself to see if it conflicts with any of your unknown plugins and possible configuration problems... In order to replace your system you would use CommandBook, Administrate, a jail plugin, and a shop plugin... done.

    My users accept the bounty, and then they kill the person with the bounty on their head.
    It notifies they collected the bounty however their iconomy balance is left unchanged.
    I am using the latest version of craftbukkut and the latest Herobounty version.

    /* 59 */ Method.MethodAccount targetAccount = register.getAccount(target.getName());
    /* 60 */ targetAccount.subtract(bounty.getDeathPenalty());
    /* */
    /* 62 */ Method.MethodAccount hunterAccount = register.getAccount(target.getName());
    both target?
    Can you just fix this simply thing?

    Hello - I am using HeroBounty in conjunction with the PVP Reward plugin, to attempt to create both incentives and drawbacks for PVP oriented players on my server.

    Both are great plugins and operate fine independently of one another, but when installed together only PVP Reward functions properly. Players can still use all HeroBounty menus, create and accept bounties, and the dialogue for earning bounty rewards even appears upon successful completion of the contract.

    Unfortunately (for the killer, mostly), the money isn't actually disbursed to the player. Their earn their small reward (for killing another player) due to PVP Reward, but the actual payout of the Hero Bounty never occurs. I am using the most recently updated version of iConomy, Hero Bounty, and PVP Reward, so I'm unsure of the actual issue.

    Any help you could offer me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
