NPC Click Commands

One of the common things Citizens users want is the ability to have NPCs run a command when right-clicked.

There is a limited version of this newly available in Citizens via the "/npc command" command. For details, refer to "/npc help command".

By default, "/npc command" will run commands as the server. Use "-p" to run as the player who clicked instead.

For example: Use /npc command -p npc help command to make an NPC automatically execute "/npc help command" on the player when clicked.

To auto-fill the player name, use "<p>". To autofill the NPC ID, use "<n>".

The old method, which in many cases is still the better method, is to use Denizen - information for that follows below.


Denizen is a scripting engine that directly integrates Citizens to add more features and options to server owners. Learn about Denizen on Spigot here and download Denizen on the Citizens Jenkins build server here.

How To Make a Click Command

The standard way to get click-commands set up in Denizen is to write an assignment script with a click action or trigger. There's a video explaining how to do this here.

Easier Option

If you'd rather not bother with scripting yourself and instead would prefer to use an in-game command, you can use a premade script available here. Simply download the script linked in that forum post, save it into "plugins/Denizen/scripts" as a .dsc file, and then use "/ex reload" to load the script. At that point, you can select any NPC and use "/npccommand set [command]" (view the forum post linked previously for additional command usage information).
