    Awesome, ill get it when my server comes back online. Although, as I said before. It is useless without class perks.

    Using the plugin now, after watching your progress for a while. Love it! Players love it, I love it. I look forward to more perks.

    Good work Lolmewn

    Thanks :)
    More awesome perks soon, give me idea's :D

    Here are my ideas. @Lowmewn

    How to gain XP Perks

    Fall and get hurt Increased health when you fall.

    Hit players or animals with your arrows Flaming arrows, possible extra damage chance. Gain arrows when levelling up.

    Axes Comat
    Hit players or animals with your axe Extra damage chance.

    Dig dirt, sand, grass or gravel Double drop, faster digging, shovel tool endurance increase

    Harvest fully grown crops, or plant seeds Crops drop more wheat/melons/whatever..

    Mine stone, coal (1XP), iron ore, Double drop (of course!), pickaxe endurance.
    mossy cobblestone (2XP), Faster mining, very, very slim chance of getting 'diamonds from dirt' - sounds nifty.

    Suffocate in water Hold breath for longer.

    Swords Combat
    Hit players or animals with your sword Sword damage increase.

    Unarmed Combat
    Hit players or animals with your bare hands Double damage chance (critical hit).

    Chop trees Double drop chance, faster woodcutting.

    Some other great ideas, which would really top this plugin off, include the following :

    - An option to restrict the mining of some ores until a specific mining level, the same with the mining of some logs, for example - you cant mine berch logs until a certain level, but you need to make it so there is an advantage of mining berch logs, more xp, better rewards etc.

    - Level restrictions I think would be ESSENTIAL! It gives something for players to work towards. They have to work at levelling up their mining, so they can mine diamonds, they have to level up their swords combat before they can use better swords, stuff like that. If you could add that, I think this plugin would be twice as good as McMMO - which im sure is a common comparison point for this plugin.

    Please, try adding the perks - as well as item/ability restriction - I think that would be a very good step for you to make. My players are already loving this plugin, but I think if you could add things for them to work towards, AKA perks/include restrictions, so they actually have to level them up to do certain things in the game, this plugin would be great.

    [diamond][diamond][diamond][diamond] /[diamond][diamond][diamond][diamond][diamond] (4 / 5) For you my friend. keep up the good work. I look forward to the next version :D

    Thank you.

    @AlexTheDooD wow, nice :)
    You already can't mine ores until a specific level if you want, it's configurable :)
    check block_levels with for example the Mining skill.

    I will try to add all these crazy cool things :)

    What is for the line in configuration:
    Is this for iConomy 6 support?

    How about to give us an option to translate every message to other languages? Option to use language packs? I want to translate this plugin to POLISH.

    Could you add support for Permissions 2.7.3?
  8. Offline


    It's the money you get when leveling up. If you set it to 20, you get 20 moneys every time you level up.
    It uses Vault, so it only works if you have Vault enabled.
    Might add Localization in the next update.
    And for Permissions support, it uses Bukkit's built in Permissions system, if Permissions 2.7.3 doesn't support that: Get new permissions plugin. (like PEX)

    So how does this compare to McMMO?
    What are the difference's, and Pros to using this?

    Is this more light Weight then Mcmmo.
  10. Offline


    Lol yeah, quite a bit more light weight then mcmmo. . . For you can hook your plugins into it making a cool class system or something, plus its simple leveling with some perks. And like the owner says he will keep adding things to it. Perk wise.
  11. Offline



    Does this work in the way McMMO does. If you level up your unarmed does it do more damage? If you level up your mining, Does it become faster? Or does it do nothing?

    Can you add colour to the "You have leveled up" message?

    every time i try to change the reward it doesn't work do you know how to fix it?
  14. Offline


    What doesn't work?
    How do you mean?
    Does it give any errors?
    Where do you edit the reward?
  15. Offline


    I want the ability to edit damage, durability, and speed. Edit the effects from the potion files so it lasts infinitly, plus on/off.

    Basicly just edit the potion files so I can use them, both infinitly, and using durability from armor files to be edited.

    So.. basically let you control the effects of potions?
  17. Offline


    Exactally. The ability to make them infinite, and turn them on and off, as well as the ability to go beyond the usual strengths, such as speed III.

  19. Offline


    Oops, sorry for that!
    I had put Sortal to update to Skillz for no reason, if you remove Sortal.jar and re-download it you should be fine.

    Thank you SOOO much!! Sorry, i think this plugin is great its just that i didnt want it in my server because it makes alot of spam :)
  21. Offline


    No problem ;)
    How do you mean, makes a lot of spam?
  22. Offline


    When a person levels up, the chat keeps getting spammed with "nick is now level 1 in acrobatics" or smth like that and in a server with 30 players minimum, it gets really annoying.
  23. Offline


    There's an option for that, you know?
    It's broadcastOnLevelup. Set it to false and it's only sent to the one leveling up ;)
  24. Offline


    i opened the yml for the plugin and i hanged the reward thing and i put in the ID nuber for a cookie and where it gives you one every time you level up and no errors showed i think
  25. Offline


    Did you put it like this?: itemOnLevelup: 357,1
  26. Offline


    Hey I got a question,

    When your level 1 you need 1block
    for 2 you need 9

    Is there a list on how much you need for each lvl ?
  27. Offline


    You can calculate it.
    It's like this:
    1, 10, 40, 90, 160.
    The calculation is this: lvl^2 * 10. So for level 25 that's 6250.
  28. Offline


    Oi would it be possible to create a string to not make players level-up in Faction Safezones?
  29. Offline


    Quick Idea Go Ahead and make it so you can repair items with materials that items is made out of. Or at least somthing like that!
