Less a player and more an orchestrator of minecraft now, for a server I largely keep just for myself. My server was 'live' for about 8 months a few years ago with a regular log of about 30 players. Since then I've been paying to keep the site and server up but not doing much beyond world-building, and maintaining it as a private project.
I'm seeking someone to create the plugins I'm imagining, and particularly a tutor to teach me how to create them as well. I've a less-than-basic understanding of java - probably less than that even - but I'm somewhat aware of a number of its abilities and functions ^_^
A long-term relationship would be preferred, especially if you've the time free to tutor, but for the smaller plugins, one-shot exchanges work fine too.
Rate wise I'm open for discussion on whether you'd like it hourly, per project, or some other form of payment. I'm lucky enough to have enough spare capital to have kept a server up for 3 years with no donations, so I don't believe budget will be a problem, although I only envisage going into triple figures for my more convoluted ideas however, or for a progressive lesson plan ^_^
First contact can be made via PM or an open post here, but generic chat will likely take place on Skype, Discord, or something similar.
This post is strictly for finding developers. Discussions that do not directly relate to finding developers, or discussions that discuss specifics are not to occur here. Furthermore, commissions are not to be discussed on the forum outside of this category.
I'm currently envisioning around a dozen or so plugins I'd like to see crafted - some quite small, some that I could probably cobble together the functionality of myself from existing plugins I've seen on here but for compactness I'd like to see built from the ground up. Emphasis on the see - no matter how many times I run against the wall of creating a basic plugin I always seem to stumble, so having someone screen-share or record for me so that every stage of the process can be soon would be great.
And again, as a segue from that, if you feel that you'd be a competent teacher, able to teach from pretty much a null-point of knowledge, feel free to drop me a message as well. Being guided in how to create a couple of the more basic plugins I seek (i.e. a plugin that 'rolls' a D66 and executes a command depending on the result) would I feel be good practice for me to understand the method, and even if I don't fully grasp how it was achieved, there'd still be an end product that was viable for me to use
As an addendum - although I've had a few people step forward to take on work, it's been quite loosely defined, a situation I'd like to avoid repeating. If any of them wish to step forward again I'd welcome that, but the lack of certainty about those situations has meant that I'd appreciate having a few things established quickly, outlined below in a blocky format, although a run of prose / short conversation that covers it after you indicate your interest is fine ^_^
Role: One-off developer / tutor / repeat developer
Rate: Whether you wish to be paid hourly, per plugin or session, request donations to yourself or some charity.
Or if you have such benevolence or interest in my ideas you'll work for free / the plugin being open-source and open to external donations.
Time-frame: How long you envisage the project taking to complete. Some leeway will be given, but over-stepping this may impact the money paid.
A schedule and rate agreement will be decided in our initial chats.
Slight reword and update. Returning in the hope that this attempt yields something tangible and educates me
