    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!

    When i complete all requirements for a quest i can finish it by talking with a NPC but it didn't drop the quest and i can only redo this quest infinitely. I am the admin and players have the same issue. trying to solve it manually with the /uquest drop command give me an internal error.
    How can i solve it ? thanks for help and sorry for my english, i'm french.

    Wait, so where's the plugin? All i can see is download links for uQuest and EpicQuest.

    Edit: Oh i figured it out.

    the original uquest gives lots of internal errors right now,try it with my improved one,here:
    I haven't tested it with this plugin,but i will start soon,since this is why i started updating uquest in the first place! :D

    Anyway, Randy, can you please give me the source code for npc-quester with uquest?
    I want to create only one plugin combining npc-quester and uquest, i will of course give all the credits to you,i will only keep updating it to the latest build,since you no longer support it! :D

    Could you make it possible to split the quest givers and quest turn in locations? Ex: Pick up quest from NPC A, hand it quest at NPC B.

    not compatible with the new uquest 2;1 ?
    i ve got severe error like

    Nope, i added some stuff that broke it -_-...i'm trying to convince Randy to give me the source,so i can integrate npc-quester inside uquest,and continue updating both! :)
  13. yeah Randy it'd be a big favor, i know multiple servers set up with this combination and obviously one can't continue with the other, we'd be really grateful for this support.

    I could give you the source of this plugin, but it would make no sense.
    Let me tell you why.

    1: Your plugin will become way too messy.
    2: There are lots of features in NPC-Quester that should be in the normal plugin, and should not be done thru NPC-Quester. (This is a major reason I started creating EpicQuest)
    3: You can do this yourself very easily, excluding several features not in uQuest. I shall send you a small piece of code on how to do this.

    Furthermore, you should make it optional if you didn't think of that already, because not everyone will use Citizens with it.

    EDIT: Sent you a message on how it works.

    You can´t use ä,ö and ü. These are the unacceptable Characters ;-)

    Are the download links updated i t keeps saying i have v. 2.2.5
  17. Offline

    Randy Schouten

    Epicquest is only being updated now.
    If you use uQuest, then it will keep 2.2.5.

    I gave the 2 guys of uQuest some help in how this plugin works, so I leave the rest to them.

    oh ok thanks for the info and ill check out EpicQuest

    Randy Schouten


    It's still in progress, but I personally think it will overthrow uQuest. (If it hasn't already.)
    I'm pushing updates out by the day, so keep track of it :)

    Hey, I might just have really, really, low caffeine levels right now, but I can't seem to find the NPC-Q download link anywhere on the post. Am I going blind? XD

    Nevermind, I found it. You may want to clarify that as when reading through the post instructions it comes across as "link to epicquest and uquest," instead of, "link for..."

    Randy Schouten

    The download links are for whatever you are using.

    So if you need the EpicQuest version, you get the one next to EpicQuest.
    uQuest and EpicQuest refer to what plugin you are using.

    Fuck my Life. "An internal error occured while attempting to perform this command" when i use EPICquest as a standalone. so i get uQuest which works. and then i add this plugin and the SAME error.

    There are 100 quests in the uquest.
    I want NPC A give random quest to players between 1~50 quests.
    and NPC B give random quest to players between 51~100 quests.
    How can I make it?

    How do you do this? I can't find anything in the help files or.. anywhere. Using uQuest.

    Randy Schouten

    Everything above the line is for EpicQuest.
    The guy who took over uQuest implemented some sort of NPC support, I believe.

    Hey there. I was curious. How exactly do I implement a "turnin" quest NPC when using this with EpicQuest?
