About MC Jobs

Welcome to MC Jobs

MC Jobs was created to pick up where jobs left off. These jobs earn you money for your server economy. There are 20 default jobs that are customizable along with the ability to create your own custom jobs.

MC Jobs

ANNOUNCEMENTS Updated 04/2015

So another year somehow has slipped by without being able to work on this project. So I have added PapiHarni to help keep the project going. Hopefully he can quickly get the codebase up to the latest Bukkit release. Welcome Papi.


I have also decided to release source on Github. If you want to fork or view the source feel free:

MC Jobs has been spotlighted by Curse gaming. Read the article here. Show your support for MC Jobs by commenting on the article.

What's New in 3.1

  • Cleaned up leveling system.
  • Added carpenter job.
  • Added a considerable number of nodes to the english.yml file.
  • Split the config.yml. Created a jobs.yml to hold the jobs.
  • Lots of bug fixes.
  • Danish language file - v3.1.2

What's New in 3.0

  • Added leveling. You can now level in jobs and your pay scale is affected accordingly.
  • Admin defined ranking system to leveling in the config.yml file.
  • Group based max jobs. Use your permission groups to define how many jobs a player can have.
  • Swedish language file.


There are no hard dependencies. MC Jobs can work out of the gate unchanged.

If you want to pay in money you need an economy bridge!

Register 1.6 or higher or Vault 1.2.13 or higher are needed.

Towny Advanced compatibility is only with versions 81.0 or higher. You cannot use v79.x with MC Jobs v2.6.15 or higher.


You have developed great shops with a shop mod or you use citizens as NPC shopkeepers, you have a repair shop, or you have a block protection system that uses an economy. But that begs the question "How do you pay your players?" Well you could just give them money, but what fun is that? That's where MC Jobs comes in. It's a full fledged player job mod where you choose how much they get paid and for what activities and they can earn money by doing those tasks. It's fully customizable by server admins, but for those of you that just wish to plug and play it has 20 built in jobs that covers about 90% of the blocks and entities in the game. Remember:

If you need cash get a job!


  • Ability to join or leave jobs
  • Obtain higher levels in jobs to earn more.
  • Charge or pay players for doing actions on the server by default. You want TNT to cost to use. You can! It's in Taxes.
  • Earn XP through jobs by default.
  • Earn money through jobs using any of the economy plugins
  • Ability to edit, create or delete jobs in the config.yml file
  • Multi World support
  • WorldGuard region support
  • Towny region support
  • Payments for mcMMO repairs
  • Utilizes craftbukkit's built in Materials List

/mcjobs = Allows all the user commands such as joining and leaving a job. /jobs = Alias of /mcjobs /mcjobsadmin = Allows the administrative commands. Reloads the addon or gives/takes a specific job from an online player or group if using Vault. Options are: reload, defaults, add player/group job, remove player/group job, list player/group. /jadm = Alias of /mcjobsadmin

  • Fixed a few bugs that would cause a player to be unable to join any jobs.
  • Added Alchemist. Now a player can be paid for brewing actions.
  • Optimized some of the code. Should use a little less CPU.
  • Rewrote the jobs unavailable timer. It should be more reliable.


  • A few fixes to the French localization.
  • Change the way the job leave timer deals with permissions to make it more compatible with all permission mods.


  • Fixed a bug with using capital letters in job names.
  • Added better timer support. Now instead of listing in minutes it lists in intervals up to months.


  • Fixed a bug with the leave timer. Now it also shows you a message when you try to rejoin a job before the time is up.


  • Added default jobs. These are jobs that everyone is put into on join. They do not count against the max jobs on the server. Only ops or players with the mcjobs.admin.leavedefault permission can leave them.
  • Updated the Admin Command. It now has 100% more awesome. Added /jadm list [player] to the command. This will allow you to see the jobs of the particular play that you choose.
  • Added Vault support to the Admin Command. Now for list, join, remove if you have Vault you can type in group names and it will do those actions to the players that are online in that group.
  • Fixed a Null Point Error with LogBlock logging turned off on worlds. If you have LogBlock logging off MC Jobs will default to its built in preventer.
  • Added a timer to when leaving jobs. Now it prevents a player from rejoining the same job within a specified time frame. It uses the rejoin_interval in the config.yml. Default time is 6 hours.
  • Added job specific permission nodes. Now it checks to see if you have the permission to join a job. The nodes all start with mcjobs.jobsavail.your_job_name. mcjobs.jobsavail.* can be set to allow all jobs.
  • Added Localization support. There are currently three options: english, french, and custom. Custom will create a file called custom.yml in your mcjobs folder that you can then edit yourself.
  • Fixed a bug that paid players for placing redstone objects in water. The object would be immediately broken but it would still play the player. Furthermore if done in rapid succession it wouldn't trigger a LogBlock, block to the payment. Now it doesn't pay at all.
  • Added pay_spawners and spawn_distance to the config file. This will allow you to prevent payment of killing mobs within a specific range of a spawner. The higher the number of spawn_distance, the more demanding the resources on your server.
  • Added McJobsEventJobChange to the event system. This is fired every time a player leaves or joins a job. However it does not fire if the job join or leave is caused by an admin putting or removing a player from a job.
  • Tweaked PrettyText to work in even more situations. Should help with foreign language support.
  • Added job Taxes. It's a default job that charges players for various place actions. It's in lieu of having the default jobs charge for their reverse actions. For example everyone is charged for placing Iron Ore blocks. There is no good reason to ever build with it. So it charges for it.
  • Added job Bulldozer. This is a default job that charges for breaking various blocks in the game. It should help incentivize taking the builder job since builder would offset the cost of breaking the blocks. This also has the tinkerer placed blocks.
  • Removed all charges out of the default jobs and placed them in Bulldozer and Taxes.
  • Considerable rewrite of config.yml.
  • Added the precursor's to SQL support.
  • Added the precursor's to a leveling system.


  • Added support for LogBlock. If you have LogBlock it will prevent players from earning money by placing and breaking blocks on the same location. It is block type specific as well. So if you break grass you'll get paid. If you then place dirt you will also be paid because grass is different from dirt. However if you place dirt again you will not be paid. The location will pay once again after time_interval in the config.yml file has been passed.
  • Fixed a bug with Fisherman creating a Null Pointer Error.
  • Fixed a color issue with the Soldier list.
  • Fixed a bug where if time_interval was set to be less than 1 it would crash the server.

  • Fixed WorldGuard bug
  • Fixed Ender Dragon and Iron Golem display bug


  • Added baker profession.
  • Moved WorldGuard check to Break and Place events only. So it shouldn't block paying players doing fishing, crafting, etc in WorldGuard regions.
  • Fixed bug with Soldier where fishing mobs would pay the soldier.
  • Added timer to block place and destroy events so a player can't be paid for the same spot repeatedly. The timer is based on the time_interval variable in the config.yml file.


  • Added specific code to support WorldGuard's region protection.


  • Added multi-world support
  • Added permission node to allow jobs in all worlds.
  • Added config node multiWorld: false to turn on and off multi-world support.

  • Added the /jobs help command. There are now 7 pages explaining every aspect of the players use of MC Jobs.

  • Added event McJobsEventSkillUp when an action matches a player job. This can be used by other mod developers to write their own pay or xp methods.
  • Added payment_type to the config.yml file. xp or money are acceptable choices. This determines whether you'll use an XP economy or one of the economy mods.
  • Added payment_mod to the config.yml file. This can be set to either register or vault to force which economy bridge you want to use.
  • Added show_every_time to the config.yml file. This is added to each job to determine whether a pay message is sent every time the player gets paid or charged. The choices are true or false. Refer to the soldier job to see how to implement it in your own jobs.
  • Changed the base pay of farmer from 1.0 to 0.5 and moved the defeat and place items from tier1 to tier2.
  • On farmer removed the place pay for cactus, sugar cane, and crops. These will only pay now on break.
  • Moved detector rails, powered rails, and rails from place to craft on tinkerer.


  • Changed farmer so it pays on breaks instead of places for most crops.
  • Added gold_leggings to amorer.
  • Separated repair from craft.
  • Added mcMMO repair events. Armorer, Weaponsmith and Toolmaker will now repair on these repair events.


  • Added a option in the config.yml usePerms: true to set whether permissions should be used or not. If set to false all the /jobs commands will be available to everyone. /jadm defaults to true for ops.
