    Hello everyone, I basically need to use a method from another class to get a value inside it's config, this is what I tried so far but i'm getting an exception when I try to call the Main class (from the other plugin) to get his istance.

    package com.maxpnl.scoreboard;

    import org.bukkit.Bukkit;
    import org.bukkit.ChatColor;
    import org.bukkit.entity.Player;
    import org.bukkit.scoreboard.DisplaySlot;
    import org.bukkit.scoreboard.Objective;
    import org.bukkit.scoreboard.Score;
    import org.bukkit.scoreboard.Scoreboard;
    import org.bukkit.scoreboard.ScoreboardManager;

    import com.maxpnl.classes.MoneyMan;
    import com.maxpnl.classes.Main;
    public class SBSys {
    private static final Main instance = new Main();
    public static boolean createScoreBoard(Player player){
    ScoreboardManager manager = Bukkit.getScoreboardManager();
    Scoreboard board = manager.getNewScoreboard();
    Objective objective = board.registerNewObjective("scoreboard", "sb");
    objective.setDisplaySlot(DisplaySlot.SIDEBAR);
    int balance = new MoneyMan(instance).getFunds(player.getName());
    Score score = objective.getScore(ChatColor.YELLOW + "Golds:");
    score.setScore(balance);
    player.setScoreboard(board);
    return false;
    }
    }

    1. Don't create a new instance of the main class. Either pass its instance through this class's constructor, or use Bukkit.getPluginManager().getPlugin("PluginName").
    2. You do not own maxpnl.com. Do not use it in your package name. Either use a domain you own, your email adress, or use the format "me.<name..<project>"

    What's the deal with using a domain you don't own in the package name?

    The package name specifies who the code belongs to. If you do not own the domain you are using, anyone using that domain can claim your code as their own (since you are using their domain). Just use a domain you own.

    @Zombie_Striker aren't you worried that someone might purchase zombiestriker.me at some point and own all of your code?

    Btw, how do I convert the Plugin item to a Main item?

    private static final Plugin instance = Bukkit.getPluginManager().getPlugin("Levels");
    public static boolean createScoreBoard(Player player){
    ScoreboardManager manager = Bukkit.getScoreboardManager();
    Scoreboard board = manager.getNewScoreboard();
    Objective objective = board.registerNewObjective("scoreboard", "sb");
    objective.setDisplaySlot(DisplaySlot.SIDEBAR);
    int balance = new MoneyMan(instance).getFunds(player.getName());
    Score score = objective.getScore(ChatColor.YELLOW + "Golds:");
    score.setScore(balance);
    player.setScoreboard(board);
    return false;

    It shows up this error "The constructor MoneyMan(Plugin) is undefined", and if I try to add a Main plugin = instance it says that you can't convert a Plugin type to a Main type, any clues?

    Here's the code I have inside the other class if you need it

    Main plugin;

    public MoneyMan(Main instance) {
    plugin = instance;
    }

    Sorry fixed this, now worries
