I am building a gambling machine on a Bukkit server with the Vault plugin, and I would like to do an error check. When the player wants to play the game, they need to have X dollars in their bank account. If they have less than the amount they want to bet, they should not be able to place a bet.

Is there any way to get a Redstone flag to be true if the player has enough money in their account to place the bet they want to place (or false if they don't)?

    There is no money in Minecraft. Please add "mods" or "bukkit" to tags, and clarify.

  • @OrcJMR The OP could be using XP or Scoreboard to keep track of money though.

  • @mrfishie Damm, scoreboards, right. Still, nothing can be said until clarified.

You sound like you're making a whole new mini-game for a minecraft bukkit server, with a vault compatible economy plugin. For something like this, I'd recommend using http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/variabletriggers/ to make scripts to complete your desired action.

If you're coding a plugin by hand, and need some help making it, post here.

  • I am making a game within a game. It is a bukkit server and we do have some kind of vault plugin. You are the second person that has mentioned these variable triggers and scripting. I am not coding a plugin. I thank you for linking me.

If you are using a players XP as money, the following command in a command block will output a signal if the nearest player has no XP to a comparator:

/testfor @p[l=0]

Alternatively, if you are using the new Scoreboard to keep track of money, you can find if the nearest player has a score of zero in the objective money with this command:

/testfor @p[money=0]

You can replace the text money with the internal name of the objective you are using to keep track of money.

If you are using something else, like a Bukkit plugin or a mod, please clarify this in your question, including the plugin/mod that you are using.

  • I apologize, I was not very specific. It's a bukkit server with a vault plugin. I am going to have to explore the /testfor command.

  • @rmarenda You will probably not have any luck with the /testfor command if you are using a plugins. I haven't seen any plugins that add arguments to be used with command blocks.
