I'm trying to set prices for all items in the Essentials plugin's "worth.yml" config file.
The server is running 1.11.2.
Only some items in the config are recognized, and I don't see the problem.

For example, the line for beacon in config is

beacon: 15000.0

and the game responds correctly, when asked "/price beacon",

enter image description here

The line for iron horse armor is

ironhorsearmor: 44.0

but when asked "/price ironhorsearmor" (a valid name in essentials), the game answers

enter image description here

Why are some items unrecognized?

  • All prices across the file are configued the same way
  • "Working" items "work" for /price, /buy, and /sell
  • "Broken" items do not work for /price, /buy, or /sell
  • Examples of working items are beacons, stone, all clay colors, saplings
  • Examples of broken items are carrots, all horse armors, all dye colors

The whole file can be found here

  • What Essentials version do you use?

  • I remember a couple of years back when I was attempting to create my Minecraft server when Essentials was messing me about. I found that the only way to really fix the problem was to scrap the full file and start again. The following this could be potential problems: whitespace in the wrong place, syntax errors (missing symbols, incorrect usage, etc) and defining the same thing more than once. Apr 27, 2017 at 14:39
  • With my comment below in mind (gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/307525/…), having a look at the official worth.yml by Spigot, it may not be possible to sell ironhorsearmor due to the fact it isn't there (for reference?). Apr 27, 2017 at 14:50

    Perhaps try IHorseArmor. As stuff such as DPickaxe works (In most cases) Apr 27, 2017 at 14:59
  • @Zxyrra If you could give me a link to where you downloaded it I could download it and play around with it and try and find you an answer.

I believe the problem from what I saw is that the official Minecraft id for iron horse armor is:


And not,


so I believe this is the problem I would suggest changing this and trying it again. If that doesn't fix it then its probably the actual mod and I would need to see it.

Plus if this does fix it then you will need to change the other horse armors as well.

Minecraft Id List

  • I am willing to try this but hesitant - essentials takes about a million names when using /price, including "ironhorsearmor" so I'm confused as to why only one would be valid in config.

    @Zxyrra Well try it and tell me if it works. Plus if it breaks you can always change it back.

    @Zxyrra Can you also give me a link to where you downloaded the mod so I can actually look at the mod.

  • @Zxyrra Also another way to find out if its actually a problem with iron horse armor is to do /price goldhorsearmor and see if you get an error from that.

    @Emptyisme: Looking at the list you provided, you can see that Diamond Ore has an id of diamond_ore but you can see on line 110 in the official worth.yml, Diamond Ore has the id of diamondore. Link to the Spigot docs github.com/SpigotMC/SpigotCraft/blob/master/plugins/Essentials/… Apr 27, 2017 at 14:44

As about everyone has said, it's iron_horse_armor, and Not IronHorseArmor. It is a "bug" with essentials that it will look for anything, even if it's not in Minecraft's code. This is especially for mods (iirc). If you have said the price, and then do

/sell hand

And if it doesn't work, you have the wrong ID.

Also, The ID of Carrot is


As just Carrot, without an S is the crop, that grows on Soil.

The Dye Color IDs are not like INK but instead are


(If this doesn't work tell me so I can see if there's more IDs for Dye) (INK_SACK just might work though, but there's no such thing as just: blue)

It's the same with spawn eggs, There's no such thing as:


But instead it is:


(I don't know what the Zombie ID is, 1 should be pig.) Even though IT MIGHT BE possible that essentials has changed this and the ID has changed to: pigspawnegg, for example.

  • This is incorrect. All IDs are either now up to Essentials' standards (like DPickaxe) or MC standard (iron_horse_armor) and there has been no change in what can be sold.
