- Tested Minecraft Versions:
Auctions is a Bukkit/Spigot plugin that allows players on your server to put up items for sale and have other users place bids to win the item. This plugin utilizes the fanciful library to provide tool tips that show the items information rather than having the chat barraged with text-form item information.
Source code is available at https://github.com/sainttx/Auctions
Here are some of the features this plugin offers:
- Full language customization
- Herochat channel intergration
- Item tooltip messages
- Action bar auction information broadcasts
- Fully configurable auction settings ranging from start prices, bid increments, queue size limit, and more!
- Auction anti-scam (delays between new auctions) and advanced anti-snipe prevention
- Sealed auctions
- Modify how time and money is formatted (shortened times and truncated $$$ [ie. 100K vs. 100,000])
- Dozens of ways to limit what players can do to your desire including blocking specific worlds, commands, item types, etc.
- No annoying external plugin dependencies asides from Vault
- An expansive API which allows your developers to add countless custom features with ease

# Auctions #
# by SainttX #
# Configuration options for various plugin integration
# settings can be defined in this section. Each integration
# option has an enable option that tells the plugin whether
# or not the option should be used. These integrated plugins
# are essentially the same things as 'chatSettings.groups'
# and stack with any defined chat setting groups.
# Herochat plugin integration options
# Find the plugin here: http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/herochat/
# Defines your Herochat chat channel that players must be joined
# to receive messages from the auction plugin. Messages that
# are only sent to a single player ignore this and will send no
# matter what.
# Configuration options for various chat group and handler features
# are defined in this section. As the plugin expands, more options
# will be added to this section.
# Configure which plugin groups view messages. All groups stack with
# each other so players from multiple groups can be defined to view
# 'global' is the standard broadcast group, this groups recipients
# is all players online.
# The handler is the mechanism for how messages get delivered.
# Current options are: TEXT, ACTION_BAR. The ACTION_BAR mechanism
# will still send messages through the TEXT channel, however it
# unlocks a new message option
# ('messages.auctionFormattable.actionBarMessage') that is sent to
# players whenever any broadcast message is sent. In the case that
# you don't want the TEXT channel sending its respective messages,
# you should disable the message by setting the message to "" (empty)
# Configuration options for various settings specific to auctions
# ie. times, bid increments, etc.
# How much money users will be charged to start an auction.
# If a user doesn't have enough money, they will be unable
# to create an auction. Default: 0.
# The percentage of the winning amount to be removed from
# the servers economy. For example, if a user wins an auction for
# $1K and the tax is at 30%, $300 will be removed and the owner
# of the auction will only be given $700 as a result. Default: 0.
# The start time for all auctions. There is currently no
# way to specify how long your auction should last through commands
# and as such all auctions will have a duration of this time. This
# time is configured in seconds and is translated through a utility
# class to English. For example, if the time is set to 600, the
# formatter will output '10 minutes'. Default: 30.
# The delay between all auctions in seconds. This is the time
# between when an auction ends and when a new auction from the queue
# is started. Auctions that are created within the delay are
# automatically added to the queue. Default: 5.
# The default bid increment to be used when a user doesn't specify
# their bid increment through commands. For example, if a user types
# /auction start 1 100, the bid increment will default to this
# amount. Default: 50.
# The minimum bid increment that is allowed to be specified. Users
# who attempt to create an auction with an increment that is less
# than this amount will be denied. Default: 10
# The maximum bid increment that is allowed to be specified. Users
# who attempt to create an auction with an increment that is greater
# than this amount will be denied. Default: 9999
# Whether or not players can set an increment that exceeds the starting
# price of the auction. For example, set to false and a player starts
# an auction with a starting price of $1000, the bidding increment
# set by the player can't exceed $1000. Default: true.
# The minimum amount that is allowed to be defined as an auction start
# price. Users that attempt to create an auction that fail to meet
# this criteria will be denied. Default: 0.
# The maximum amount that is allowed to be defined as an auction start
# price. Default: 99999.
# The maximum amount that is allow to be defined as an auction autowin
# price. Default: 1000000 (1M).
# Whether or not players can auction items that have been named through
# a plugin or anvil. Default: true.
# Whether or not players can auction items that have any durability loss.
# Default: true.
# Whether or not players can specify an autowin amount in their auction.
# If users specify an autowin and this is set to false, they will be
# denied the creation of the auction. Default: true.
# Whether or not players can auction while in creative mode. Default: false.
# Whether or not players can use the /bid command with no arguments. If
# this is set to true, players can type "/bid" and automatically increment
# the auction with the auctions bid increment. When set to false, players
# will be required to specify a bid amount. Default: true.
# The maximum amount of auctions that are allowed inside an auction. Users
# who attempt to create auctions when the queue is full will be denied.
# Default: 3.
# Defines the last time, in seconds, that users are allowed to use
# the "/auction cancel" command. If an auctions time is less than
# what is defined here, users will not be able to cancel their auction
# anymore. Default: 15.
# Various settings regarding auction anti sniping can be defined here.
# Whether or not anti sniping is enabled. Default: true.
# The time left, in seconds, in an auction that anti-snipe can
# be enabled at. For example, if set to 3 and a player places a bid
# at 2 seconds, anti-snipe will trigger if enabled and add
# 'auctionSettings.antiSnipe.addSeconds' seconds to the auction time.
# Default: 3.
# The maximum amount of times an auction can be sniped, this is
# primarily to prevent auctions for going on for indefinite
# amount of times. Default: 3.
# The amount of seconds to add whenever an auction is sniped.
# Default: 5.
# Various settings regarding sealed auctions can be defined here
# Whether or not sealed auctions are enabled. Default: false.
# Typically in sealed/blind auctions, bidders are only allowed to
# submit 1 bid and then they must wait until the auction to see
# who the winner is. This configuration option allows you to configure
# how many bids a player is allowed to place (or raise their previous)
# on the auction. Default: 1.
# Setting this option to true will have an effect on the [topbiddername]
# and [topbid] placeholders when a sealed auctions message is being
# formatted. Rather than giving away the top bidder and top bid, the
# formatter will replace the placeholders with "Hidden" and "hidden"
# respectively (topbidder, topbid). Default: true.
# Various settings unrelated to auction specific options are found in this
# A value that is used by the plugin to determine if your configuration
# is out of date. This value should not be modified. The plugin will
# tell you in console whether or not your config is out of date.
# Whether or not to shorten times that are formatted through the utility
# class. For example, this is the difference between times being shown as
# "5 minutes 5 seconds" vs. "5m, 5s". Default: false.
# Whether or not to truncate any numbers that are formated into messages.
# These numbers are monetary values (top bid amount, buyout, etc). Setting
# this to true will have applicable numbers truncated. For example, the
# number 1234 will be output as "1K", 99874 as "99K", etc. Default: false.
# Whether or not to use the auctioned items display name, if available,
# instead of the items actual name. For example, if a player auctions a
# Diamond Sword with display name "Awesome Sword" and this option is
# set to true then the auction will display "Awesome Sword" as opposed
# to "Diamond Sword" in auction formattable messages. Default: false.
# A list of worlds that the auction plugin is disabled in. World names
# are all case sensitive.
# Various settings settings to block commands found in 'general.blockedCommands'
# on specific occasions.
# This option will block commands when players are the auction owner.
# Default: false.
# This option will block commands when players have an auction in the
# queue. Default: false.
# This option will block commands when players are the top bidder.
# Default: false.
# A list of commands that are blocked if any of the settings in
# 'general.blockCommands.*' are set to true. Commands here should
# be defined as the players type them. For example, if a player
# types /test hello, it will match the command '/test'. Keep in
# mind that all commands are formatted to be all lower cases, so
# commands entered here should be in all lower case.
# A list of Bukkit Materials that are not allowed to be auctioned.
# Valid materials: https://hub.spigotmc.org/javadocs/spigot/org/bukkit/Material.html
# A list of lores that are not allowed to be present inside any
# lore strings on an item. For example, if we have "A string of
# lore" defined in this list (default) and an item contains
# the lore strings "hello", "this is lore", and "lol A string of
# lore" the item will not be allowed to go into auction due to
# the fact that "A string of lore" is present in the third line.
- "A string of lore"
# A list of times that the plugin will broadcast the amount
# of time left in the auction. The format of this list can
# be specified as it currently is ("["#", "#"]") or as above.
broadcastTimes: ["60", "30", "10", "3", "2", "1"]
# Every message that is sent from the plugin is found in this section.
# The message keys are made to be as intuitive as possible so that
# you don't have much difficulty with figuring out what each message does.
# All messages are formatted for chat colors regardless if there are
# placeholder present or not.
# Notes: - ALL messages can be disabled by setting it's respective self
# to "" (empty).
# All messages under 'auctionFormattable' mean that messages sent
# that are from here are first parsed with the current active auction.
# There are various placeholders that you can insert into these messages
# that will be formatted will information from the current auctions
# information. These placeholders are as follows:
# [itemName] - placeholder for the raw name of the item being auctioned
# [itemamount] - placeholder for the amount inside the reward/item
# [time] - placeholder for the formatted time left (ie. 30 seconds)
# [autowin] - placeholder for the autowin balance in the auction
# [ownername] - placeholder for the name of the auctions owner. defaults to "Console" if null.
# [topbiddername] - placeholder for the name of the auctions top bidder. defaults to "Console" if null.
# [increment] - placeholder for the minimum increment inside an auction
# [startprice] - placeholder for the initial start price of an auction
# [topbid] - placeholder for the current top bid in the auction (untaxed)
# [taxpercent] - placeholder for the current tax percent set by 'auctionSettings.taxPercent'
# [taxamount] - placeholder for the current amount of money deducted by the tax
# [winnings] - placeholder for the resulting amount of money that will be won (after tax is deducted)
# SPECIFIC MESSAGES ONLY:
# [snipetime] - only works with antiSnipeAdd
# [queuepos] - only works with queuePosition and queueInfoLine
# Notes: - [ownername] and [topbiddername] will default to "Console" (w/o brackets)
# if there is no valid player entity in those placeholder slots.
# The itemFormat is essentially the way [item] will be formatted inside
# auction messages. For example, if you have a message that contains
# "Hello [item]!", the [item] placeholder will be replaced with the items
# name formatted as seen in itemFormat.
# The actionbar message is sent along ALL broadcasts made by the plugin. If
# you don't want duplicate messages being sent through chat, you'll have to
# disable the specific message by setting them to nothing (ie. "").

An elegant auctioning solution that allows text tooltips for auctioned items
It was a very nice plugin. I will do a complete recode of the based actions with functions and nearly same style for 1.16. I will update my post if it is released.
Out yet: Yesss: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/auctions-recoded.82679/
Have fun with it :3
Thanks for creating this awesome plugin!
If anyone is trying to find the 1.12 compatibility for this plugin here is the link to it:
This plugin is awesome! But there are some things to do! Pls add a GUI based Auction system and command: "/auction toggle auction msg" so you dont recive spamming msgs in chat! So like you enter:
- "/bitauctions" and it open gui with items
- "/bit sell <starting price> " sells your hand
- "command form of bitting item"
[your bit price] [Item] [Curent price and who bits it]
To your bit | To current higest bit
[+ 1$] [- 1$] | [- 1$] [+1$]
[+ 5$] [-5$] | [-5$] [+5$]
[+ 10$] (same on other side)
[+ 1 mio]
(only for sellers) [stop bit] [end bit]
(andmins) [Force end] [Force buy] [Get (gives admin copy of item)]
That would be cool!
Working version for 1.12:
