dtlTraders was a trait for Citizens2 allowing to use NPCs as merchants.

Creating a basic trader and managing his stock is really easy, you need to know only one simple command (/trait trader) and all other things are achieved by using the provided GUI.

However you are not forced to use the trader interface if you don't want to, this plugin comes along with a bunch of commands, and a templating feature called patterns, this allows you to create, change, extend, merge shops in any way you want! You can also manage items and prices in shops using permissions, allowing you to change the shop content depending when a player has the required permission!

Also if you want you can translate each end-user part of the plugin into your language, as a result, this plugin also comes along with ready and built in translations into some languages.


All working features, you can use with version 3.0.8

  • Selling items to players
  • Buying items from players
  • Easy adding, editing and removing items from a trader stock
  • Easy price setting mechanism
  • Allowing to open and set a sub-inventory with more specific amount choices for items

Getting started

To get this plugin working you will need to get the following plugins:

  • Citizens2
  • Vault
  • Vault supported economy plugin, like BOSEconomy, Fe
  • Vault supported permission plugin, like PermissionEx, Groupmanager

After you got all of them you can just simply put the dtlTradersx.x.x.jar into the plugin directory and start using this plugin.

For the most basic setup you need only to know one command, /trader create <name> that creates a trader or simply create an NPC and add the /trait trader to it.
