    NPC-Quester - Make NPCs give quests!
    Version: 2.3.1

    If you ever wanted a plugin that would make your NPCs give out quests, this is the plugin for you.
    Lots of features to be added, so keep on the lookout!

    • uQuest:
      • NPCs give random quests
      • Specified NPCs give out a specific quest and restricted those quests if wanted
      • If wanted, make players have a specified item in their hand with a specified amount, and if you want it, take it from them too
      • Quest chains!
      • Make NPCs give out the quest only once
    • EpicQuest:
      • Give solo quests
      • Give group quests
    How to install: (read carefully!)

    First off, required plugins:
    uQuest or EpicQuest (quests)
    Citizens (NPCs)
    Permissions (commands, not neccesary but nice to have)

    Now, to give your NPCs quests, use the ingame commands to make your NPCs quests!​
    You can also copy paste one of the examples and type your own settings there if you find that easier too.​

    Use in-game commands to add NPCs or change the config​

    Names are case sensitive!

    When you are done adding your questers, /reload your server to load them.


    For uQuest (not iQuest!): RAR, ZIP
    For EpicQuest: RAR, ZIP

    How to use:
    To get a quest, right click a NPC who is in the config file.

    Commands with uQuest:
    /npcq help [page], shows commands.
    There's too much commands to type here, so just use the help command to see them all.
    Reload command removed for now, it doesn't work
    Permissions with uQuest:
    npcq.edit - Normal quest editing
    npcq.remove - Normal quest removing
    npcq.item - Quest giver item editing and removing
    npcq.chain - Chain quest adding, removing and editing - Shows all commands in-game
    Commands with EpicQuest:
    /npcq help - Shows commands.
    /npcq add solo/group/turnin [npc name] - Add a quester
    /npcq remove [npc name] - Remove a quester
    Permissions with EpicQuest:
    npcq.add - Add questers
    npcq.remove - Remove questers - Show all commands in-game
    • Option to restrict random quest givers to NOT give out specified quests (Planned for next version)
    • Quest chains
    • Get quests only once
    • Right click a NPC twice to get a quest, see q info on first click
    • Automatic quest amount counting (Planned for next version)
    • Need a certain quest level before able to get quests from certain NPCs
    • Command to add random quest givers (Planned for next version)
    • Show quest status instead of "You already have a quest" when you hit a quest giver (Planned for next version)
    • Complete quest on hitting the npc (Planned for next version)
    • Possible quest fees
    • Complete quests only once then disable them for that player
    • Suggestions always welcome!

    That's the link I found on it's thread.
    It should work fine, as I've installed it on my server as well.

    Quick update post.

    I am currently creating my own quest plugin.
    The reason for this is that uQuest will get outdated at some point, and I find that there's lots of essential stuff missing such as chain quests.
    That said, I'm going to rip this plugin apart when "EpicQuest" is released, as a lot of stuff from this plugin is mostly essential to any quest plugin. That includes chain quests, only give quests once, etc etc.
    Something new I will introduce is group quests, where need to create a group thru a feature of my plugin and you will be able accept quests with bigger rewards but also more difficult quests if you so desire.

    Now with all this, I will keep this plugin in mind to make it very compatible with.
    This will also make this plugin a lot easier to configure since most of the stuff is already in the EpicQuest config files.

    As example, I'm going to make it so that you have one main quests file, and a separate chain quests file where you can create your chain quests from the main quests file.

    I will be posting early version on this forum under "Development > WIP" in the plugin section, so keep a look out on either this thread where I will promote early versions as well or that section.

    This is all ideas at the moment, I'm currently coding the group idea, but I can not say I am able to do all this. But I will do my best to make this the best questing plugin out there :)

    Also, if you have a really awesome idea, do post it here and I might add it in NPC-Quester while I'm working on EpicQuest.

    have anybody a tutorial or mini howto to use this quest systems with citizin and uquest please?
  14. Offline


    Sounds excellent man, one thing that I hate about uQuest is how EASY it is to break the plugin when editing the config. I hope you'll find a way to make it much more user-friendly, as well as maybe a quest making GUI like uQuest was supposed to have.

    As far as quest types, I like the kill a mob, move here, have this many items, break this many blocks, etc. it would also be cool if you had like, 2 different types of quests. 1 active type, which they had to finish before gaining a new one, and passive types, where these quests would stay on the user until they finished them, but could still do other active quests at the same time. This would be good for, say, a passive PVP quest where the user has to kill 5 other users in PVP before he gets his reward, that way the user could still do other quests while waiting to find 5 different users to kill.

    Just my suggestion, for now :)

    Also, could you maybe add in the first post the default config, explaning what each value does? I'm kinda confused if I need to change anything in the config before running or not...

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.

    And I'll post the default config in the first post ;)

    You need permissions installed to use commands.
    If you don't want to install it, you can edit the files by hand.

    I've tried it with "permissions" but I can not cope with it :(
    what should I edit if I do not want to use "permissions" ?


    ok, i tried again with permissions and now its work.
    Thanks for your help =D

    no i check out your Plugin ;)

    Randy Schouten

    Sorry that I couldn't react, I'm very into my new plugin now. :D

    Talking about EpicQuest: small update on progress.
    • Making groups (Group quests(!!!)). I'm very excited about this feature :D
    • Doing kill quests
    • Giving random quests
    • Displaying quest information at start, including start text and finish text
    • Start of collect quests
    Main features left:
    • More quest types ofcourse, including "moveto" (go to a certain location)
    • Chain quests
    • Quest saving
    • Adding the "Minimum players needed" option in the config
    • Quest log (multiple quests at the same time)
    There's also something big I plan on implementing.
    Some sort of a instance system.
    That means you select a cuboid and create an instance of that, and players will have to go there in groups and fight monsters to get to the end.
    My plan is to have the creator of the instance set the spawn points of the monsters and spawn all monsters in the dungeon once the party of players enters it.
    After the group finished the instance, it gets reset.

    I am not sure if I'm able to do this, but I will sure attempt it ;)

    Hi all NPCQuester don't start proper anymore on my server.

    The problem is i see that uquest disable something because it is loaded is loaded a.e. before NPCQuester loads before BOSEconomy loads...

    How can i order the loading if the plugins?

    Randy Schouten

    Please post your start log here :)
    uQuest also starts after NPC-Quester in my log, so that shouldn't matter.

    You're missing quite alot of stuff on "Endain" in your NPCQuester config.
    Make sure to copy paste the EXACT example quester, and only change it's values.

    I want to create a quest feature. No more random. and I know how you can do some. Such as what I am looking for, I want a quest to just go outside of my first city. you could use coordinate ID's... I think....

    Is this still functional with uQuest being severely outdated?
