    This plugin is for giving players the option to rent or buy a region. It could be used to let them rent a jail in your Prison server or maybe a shop in the market of the Survival server. The player interacts with signs, making it easy to use. It also has a lot of commands to check the status of all regions, manage the renting and buying of a region and also features for admins. Also the plugin is capable of saving the region and restoring it later, this is very flexible and can be set general and per region, check the config for more information.

    All features in a list:
    • Rent and sell regions to players + Players can resell their bought regions to other players
    • Signs for easy interacting and current status
    • Change the language of the plugin or use of of the already provided language files (check here for supported languages, these are already packed with the plugin, just change the language setting in the config).
    • Automatically let the plugin restore the region with schematics
    • Change which commands players can use with permissions
    • Customize the plugin by changing the config
    • Automatically place the region name on the sign if it is placed inside a region
    • Teleport to rent/buy regions and optionally set the teleport location (teleporting is safe and within the region)
    • Adding friends to regions (which also can teleport then)
    • Automatic unrent/sell for regions of which the owner is offline for a certain time
    • Warning to players when their rent is about to run out (at login and while they are online)
    • Group system to set options for a couple of regions instead of all of them.
    • All heavy tasks are spread over time (each tick a part is executed until done), so the plugin should not cause any lag.
    • Rent/buy limits can be different per permission node (player group), world or group of regions (possible situation: Normal players can buy 1 market region in survival + 1 build region in survival and 2 plots in creative, while VIPs have double limits for all those)
    • Supports name changes because of saving player info by UUID, for more details check the FAQ entry: What happens when a player changes his name?
    For a preview join '' and go to the Survival server, the shops around the spawn use AreaShop.

    Requirements and installing
    • Server software: Bukkit 1.7.9 or higher, Spigot 1.7.9+ or higher
    • Java 7 or higher (latest recommended)
    • WorldGuard 5.9 or higher (6.0+ recommended)
    • WorldEdit 5.6.3 or higher (6.0+ recommended)
    • Vault 1.4.1 or higher
    • An economy plugin supported by Vault (check the Vault page for a list of supported plugins)
    When you have installed AreaShop, have correct server software and all required plugins installed (and the correct versions of them) you can startup your server. After that you can edit the config.yml and default.yml file of AreaShop to your liking and after that you use '/as reload' to reload the configs. Then you can start by setting up regions and adding them to AreaShop.
    This plugin utilizes Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to
    A unique identifier, the server's version of Java, whether the server is in offline or online mode, the plugin's version, the server's version, the OS version/name and architecture, the core count for the CPU, the number of players online, the Metrics version.

    This information will give me an indication about how much the plugin is used and encourages me to continue development. Opting out of this service can be done by setting 'sendStats' in the config of this plugin to 'false', if you want to disable Metrics for any plugin go to plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and change 'opt-out' to 'true'. Check graphs of the statistics at this page:

    A well documented shop plugin for Minecraft

    The owner is extremely nice. Me and him were very confused on why we couldn't place blocks in my shop and he took his time to come onto my server and first-hand help me out with it (it was some bug with another plugin, not Area Shop)

    I hope it gets updated with more content, features, bug fixes, etc in the future though.

    Excellent plugin and works as intended even for 1.12.2 even though it is not updated since 2nd dec 2016.

    For those who can't get the "Restore" to work do the following:
    copy the content of "default.yml" to "config.yml" and set "enableRestore" to true, then manually set "/as setrestore REGION true" for each region.
