    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!

    Seems you will have to compile it again, they have the Source Code updated, for Vault, not for Register, and when pasting it up to your plugins folder, make sure you change the name and put a Z as first letter of HeroBounty, like "ZHeroBounty.jar", that way it will initialize last.

    I cannot put a link out of Bukkit because probably it will be deleted by mod but you can try compiling it by urself.

    DOING THIS is working for CB 1566, latest dev-Vault one.
  5. This is an recompiled version.

    This is.... I think... the only plugin of its kind... well, with exception of HazordBounty, which doesn't seem like it has been worked on nearly as much, and seems inactive. It'd be wonderful if this plugin was brought up-to-date and put on BukkitDev ;)

    Thanks for the new builds!

    For some reason when ever I try to do the bounty commands, it gives me a message like "internal error" Please help?

    I believe it needs an update for the new bukkit build. Mind either updating the plugin or marking it as (semi-)abandoned?

    and of course tell me if I'm wrong.

    you should add it so that when u put a bounty no some one u can pay by using items
