Clue scrolls is an amazing plugin to use on your factions, survival, prison servers, and more! You can create clues in the config which are used on the scrolls. When a player completes all the clues of a scroll they will automatically receive their rewards which are defined with weights via commands. You can even create command rewards which are given to the player as an item and can be executed by the player upon interaction.

How to Install

Installing Clue Scrolls is easy as can be. Follow the few steps below and you'll be all set.

  1. Purchase and download the ClueScrolls.jar.
  2. Upload the ClueScrolls.jar into your plugins folder.
  3. (Optional) - If you wish to use any features which involves the exchange of money, you will need vault. You can download and follow the instructions found here.
  4. Start/restart/reload your server. Default configuration files will automatically be generated at this point in your plugins/ClueScrolls/ directory.
  5. Read about the configuration files, clue creation, and adding rewards found below to configure the plugin exactly to your liking.
  6. Have fun! Feel free to PM or post to the discussion any issues you experience or recommendations you have for features.

Configuration Files

When the plugin loads for the files time, default configration files will automatically load. Use these files as a reference with their comments explaining parts of the configs. When you update cluescrolls, if there were any changes to the config, your current config will auotmiatcally backup in your ClueScrolls/backups directory and will automatically update to the newer format. Any missing messages in the messages file are added if missing.


Tier Creation

By default, cluescrolls comes with three tiers: commmon, special, and legendary.


  #The three default tiers. Note that they must be in lowercase in order to work.
  #Under each tier are its options such as it's clues, clueCount, etc.

To create a new tier, simply copy a tier from your config and paste it in with a new tier name. All tiers are located under the tiers configuration section.

  #To create this new tier, I copied the entire section of another tier such as the legendary tier
  #and then pasted it back into the list of tiers and gave it a unique name of rare

Now that you have copied a tier and all of its contents, you can configure it as normal and it will be available in game when the config is reloaded.

To work, tiers must be identified in all lowercase!

Clue Creation

There's so much you can do with cluescrolls and the creation of your own custom clues that an entire page has been dedicated to explaining all the possibilites! ClueScrolls offers more than 70 clues - 25+ of them are internal minecraft clues such as
the craft clue or the kill clue, and the remaining 45+ are external clues that hook into plugins such as MythicMobs, Votifier, Boss, and more!

Adding Rewards

There's two types of rewards: item and command. To add rewards, use the following commands.

/cluescrolls additem [Tier] [Name] [Weight]

/cluescrolls addcommand [Tier] [Name] [Weight] [Command]

Adding an item adds the item in your main hand to the rewards for the given tier.

When adding a command, you can use %player% to represent the player's name.

The higher the weight (can be any number, even above 100), the higher the chance of it being given as a reward.
