Intended use

Despite the wide availability of shopping plugins, an auction is still the best way for auctioneers to achieve the maximum price for their goods by reaching a broad audience and having them duke it out. Experience shows that especially rare items such as enchanted tools and armor can make for a very intense and exciting fight for the highest bid. The winning bid may even exceed the price for the same item available in shops.

Features

  • Players can auction off items from their inventory
  • Bid for items with your in-game currency
  • World blacklist
  • Live notifications about auction activity (players can mute it)
  • Spam protection: Suppress messages when people spam bids
  • Fully customizable messages
  • Admin commands to moderate auction activity
  • Auction history for in-game review
  • Auctions survive server restarts
  • Informative display of item properties (damage, enchantments, etc)
  • Auctions will survive a server restart.
  • A cancelled auction or one that ends without any bids will return the item to the owner.
  • If items are handed over to a player with a full inventory, they will be dropped where they are standing.

Commands

Auctions are managed with simple commands with an interactive on-line help.

  • /auctionย This command will always direct you to an overview of your current options.
  • /aucย An alias for /auction that works with all of the below

Admin Commands

Admins have additional commands to get more information than normal users, moderate the market activity, auction off spawned items or stimulate the economy by bidding for items on behalf of the bank.

Permissions

The defaults are set up so anyone can query auction information and place bids. Permission to start auctions, however, is not granted by default. Administrative actions default to op.

  • auction.infoย Query information about the current auction
  • auction.bidย Place bids for auctions. Implies auction.receive
  • auction.startย Start your own auction
  • auction.adminย Perform administrative commands
  • auction.receiveย Receive items you won (since v1.2.1)
  • auction.nofeeย Player is exempted from the auction fee
  • auction.notaxย Player is exempted from the auction tax

How it works

Every player with the appropriate permission can start an auction for any amount of items in their inventory. To do so, they can simply type /auc hand to sell whatever they are holding in their hand, or /auc start to be presented with a chest interface to put their items in. If everything is alright, the auction will be publicly announced and the plugin will claim the item and start accepting bids.

Placing a bid means declaring theย maximum amountย you are willing to pay for the item. After the auction times out, the participant with the highest bid wins, but all he has to pay isย just enough to beat the second highest bid. This is how many online auction houses function.

The result of this system is that sniping, that is overbidding by a small amount in the last second, becomes very difficult. Also players don’t have to worry about placing an unnecessarily high bid when nobody else is interested in paying nearly as much. They can just declare the maximum amount right away and be guaranteed to pay up to that but no more, and only as much as is necessary to win. Also, nobody else will know about it unless they bid even more.

Language

All in-game chat output is configurable and CraftBay comes with several language files: English (en_US), German (de_DE), Simplified Chinese (zh_CN), and Russian (ru_RU). The preferred language can be chosen in the configuration file and adjusted via configuration files.
