Inactive [RPG] NPC-Quester v2.3.1 - Make NPCs give quests (links uQuest/EpicQuest and Citizens) [1000]

Discussion in 'Inactive/Unsupported Plugins' started by Randy Schouten, Jun 9, 2011.

  1. 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:
    Code (Text):
    1. /npcq help [page], shows commands.
    2. There's too much commands to type here, so just use the help command to see them all.
    3. Reload command removed for now, it doesn't work

    So if I block users from having access to the /uquest menu, they will still have access to quests through NPCs that I set up right? Just making sure I don't need /uquest permissions anymore.. thanks!

    Sorry, my bad. This was not crashing my server >.<
    So it's not bad, the plugin is working well even if there is an error >.<
    Sorry for that :/

    Something else i found : I choose item 340 (book) to get a quest from a random quest giver, but when i don't have the correct item in hand it says me : "YOu don't have the correct item in your hands" but when i have the correct items, it does nothing :( (i don't get the quest)
    This happens only when consume is set to false.

    Also, could you add documentation about the config file ? Because i'd like to add quester by the file, not in game, but i don't understand all of the config.

    And some other request : could you add quest chain betweens npc ?
    NPC 1 : gives quest 1
    NPC 2 : gives quest 2 ONLY if quest 1 has been done ?
    and so on.

    Thanks for this great plugin ;) I'm really looking forward Epic Quest since uQuest is outdatted :(

    Kararty and everyone else, I believe ohmydoddtv is talking about the developer linking NPC-Quester to work with EpicQuest instead of uQuest because the developer of uQuest has stopped development. All of this information can be found on either his EpicQuest page or his NPC-Quester page.

    I strongly agree with ohmydoddtv, please link NPC-Quester to Epicquest!
    Thank You.

    It would be awesome if you made it like in WoW. I mean with question marks and exclamation marks.

    Please be aware guys that uQuest hasn't been updated in a while and things with that and this are bound to go wrong, instead of using uQuest use this:

    It's a plugin that Randy (also the developer of this plugin) is working on as uQuest is now inactive. He is also hopefully soon linking Citizens with that using this plugin.

    Also Randy, how's progress going? :)
  23. Offline


    Yes is know that, but some guys says that uquest + NPC-quester are still working.
    I think a quest from a NPC are cooler than a quest in text form. And I also think that it take a long time until Epic Quest is finished and linked with Citizens.
    This is the reason why I wanted to use this one.
    But I will test Epic Quest soon.
  24. Offline


    Can we please have some details about how far away this is from linking Epic Quest? :/

    My players are really starting to moan about having no quests :( When I get a job I will be sure to donate plenty to you and the Citizens developer, as long as I'm happy with the plugins :)

    When I add a quest to a NPC, he don't give me it.
    I've try right/left click, anythings works.

    Someone could help me ?
    I use NPC-Quester, Uquest (the old one) and Citizen.
  30. I'm going to need a little more info.

    Post config?
    What exactly did you do?
    Are you sure that you have the names of the NPCs correct? They are case-sensitive.
