    By default Bounteh creates the following folders & structure in your plugins directory.
    Code (Text):
    [I]   <!-- This is the minimum amount that a bounty can be worth in order to be considered valid! -->
       <!-- This is how much money will get deducted (ontop of the reward) when placing a bounty. (Percentage) 1 being 100% -->
       <!-- Percent of the total contract worth that a bounty hunter will be charged for taking up a contract, so players can't mass-hoarde contracts without having to pay for it! -->
       <!-- When hunting a contract and the player dies, they can be charged a percentage for failing to achieve! Change to 0 to disable. -->
       <!-- If cancelling a contract there's a fee that can be deducted to prevent players from placing bounties on their head and then cancelling them without reprocussions! -->
       <!-- How long (in minutes) from the time a bounty is created, before it will expire. -->
       <!-- How long before players can accept another bounty (in minutes from the last time) -->
       <!-- Whether or not to refund players an inconvienance fee whenever someone cancels a contract that they're pursueing. -->
       <!-- How far around to search for the players target; The greater the number, the more area it will search for their last known location. -->
       <!-- If true, a player can do /bounty clear to clear the bounty on their own head. Letting them pay the fee, instead of having to have their head hunted. -->
    If you have any questions regarding configuration, let me know!

    Each bounty has its own .xml file, index by the bounties UUID.
    Inside this bounty is information regarding the target name, targets UUID, original placer of the bounty, all the active hunters on the bounty, all the extra additions that have been placed on the bounty to increase its value!

    Tampering with data inside the Bounty.xml file will likely result in errors, but if you wish to, do so at your own discretion!

    Note: Due to the design of Bounteh, utilizing the Commons MiniGame engine, it creates the 'Arenas' folder to manage worlds and their interactions; Creating a configuration file for the default world. The plugin doesn't depend on this, though requires the file to be there. In the future there will be additional options to manage interactions in these config files.


    Bounteh Requires the following Dependencies: Commons, Vault, Java 8
