  • RCAchievements is a Raid-Craft plugin that makes it possible to gather achievements on the Raid-Craft network. Achievements can be anything ranging from secret locations over kill counts, completed quests and even achievements for gathering multiple achievements are possible.
    The Achievements plugin uses the Action API to parse the configs for trigger, requirements and actions. To learn how to program new actions, requirements and trigger and how to configure them, please see the Action API article.
    The plugin also depends on YAML Configurations and a database to save gained achievements. The database can also be queried for all configured achievement templates, but any changes made to the database template entries will be overwritten on plugin reboot.


    RCAchievements makes use of the RaidCraft-API and all API classes are inside the de.raidcraft.api.achievements package. The RaidCraft-API is therefor a mandatory requirement before installing RCAchievements.
    To install the plugin simply drop it into the plugin folder, restart the server, adjust the database.yml configuration and restart the server again.

    Folder Strutcure

    RCAchievements has its own deep folder structure to sort all configured achievements, language files and queued achievement templates. You can recursively create subfolders inside the achievements/ folder and all configs inside will be loaded.

    achievements/ - Contains all achievement configs and may contain a variable number of subfolders.

    command-templates/ - Contains templates that have been created via command and are not yet active and loaded.

    languages/ - Contains language files for all requested languages.

    database.yml - Contains username, password, etc. for the database access.


    All achievements are located in the achievements/ folder and subfolders. As best practice it is recommended to create subfolders based on your achievement categories. If you have achievements for different areas of your world you should create folders for these areas and create the achievements inside.

    To make life a little bit easier you can create the basic templates by executing the /rcaa create <id> <Name> command and then edit the created config file. Below is an example config. To learn how to configure actions, requirements and trigger see the Action API tutorial.

    Source Code

    1. name: Friendly Achievement Name
    2. description: Description of the achievement. If the achievement is not secret the players can see this before completing the achievement, so dont spoil stuff inside the description ;).
    3. # achievement points are something you can choose freely, but you should define some rules for your achievement creators to not have chaos and big point spans
    4. points: 10
    5. enabled: true
    6. # if the achievement is secret it will still be broadcasted but only the name can be viewed. The description is hidden and only available to the players who completed the achievement.
    7. secret: false
    8. # when set to false the achievement will not be broadcasted to all online players
    9. broadcasting: true
    10. # see the Action API tutorial to lean how to configure these requirements, actions and trigger
    11. trigger: {}
    12. requirements: {}
    13. actions: {}
