    VillagerTradeLimiter uses bStats to collect data on how this plugin is used. This helps me keep track of server and plugin versions. You can turn this off in the config by changing the following line in config.yml:
    Code (Text):
    bStats: false

    Working! The economy on my server is saved. Fixed prices for all players, no discounts. No rewriting of villagers trades, just a simple adjustment of config.

    Perfect plugin for those looking to make all sorts of villager trading changes. Support in the 'Discussions' tab was friendly and quick when I was having an issue.

    100% recommend this plugin, especially servers that have man-made villager trades.

    Great plugin. It should have appeared immediately after 1.14 was released. Sometimes deals become very imbalanced, especially due to repeated cures of villagers or simply significant discounts. We all know the sad joke about buying bookshelves, breaking them and then selling books back for more.
    This is nonsense, which the developers themselves have not yet corrected. This plugin will allow you to fix some of the distortions that have arisen with the villagers trade in the latest versions. For additional modification of deals, I recommend (I don't know if these plugins will work together) - https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/custom-villager-modifications.78329/
