Plugin Category: [FUN], [ADMIN], [ECONOMY], [RPG] Type of Developer: Ideally private developer, but community release too!. My Idea: A plugin which protects the deep layers of the ground, and players can buy a mining permit for a public mine (predefined region). The plugin should also allow certain groups to bypass the normal digging limit. This "Permit" should be based on both a Permission node and buy it for the public mine using a command. The permit can then have a set time to last before it expires when bought for a public mine. How it works: The land on an entire world, below a configurable Y axis is protected (similar to how WorldGuard protects land). So players will need a permission to mine beyond a certain point. Once players reach the 'limit', it will say "You need a permit before mining deeper. Type /PermitInfo". This plugin stimulates the economy, adds to the Role Play, and can also be used to restrict X-Ray Modders. Could implement this in a number of ways: 1. Permissions: (PEX, bPermissions, GroupManager) 4 nodes to allow access to each "layer". This could be used in circumstances of miner ranks, such as mining novice, mining master, etc. permits.level1 - Configurable Y axis permits.level2 - Configurable Y axis permits.level3 - Access to all blocks permits.admin - Admin commands 2. Commands: Economy/iConomy support with configurable costs and times. Have following commands: /buypermit [region name] /permit info - Displays the costs of each level, duration and their depth /permit check - check your remaining time /permit check [player] - requires permits.admin /permit grant [player] [level] - requires permits.admin Example YAML config: Code: #Protected Regions #All protections begin from bedrock (Y=0) #Level 1 (example PROTECT_UNTIL: Y=40) PROTECT_UNTIL: Y=50 #Level 2 (example PROTECT_UNTIL: Y=40) PROTECT_UNTIL: Y=40 #Level 3 (example PROTECT_UNTIL: Y=40) PROTECT_UNTIL: Y=30 #How long the permit lasts in seconds. PERMIT_DURATION: 3600 #Choice of Eco Plugin (iConomy, Essentials) ECO_PLUGIN: "Essentials" #Amount of money player must pay to buy permit COST: 100 #Amount of money player must pay to buy permit COST: 250 #Amount of money player must pay to buy permit COST: 500 There may be a reward in it for any dev taking the job.
