A good economy mod

What is a good economy mod for SMP? I would like to add a currency to my server, and use a plugin as means to do it.

iConomy is leagues ahead of any other economy plugin.

Are you using Craftbukkit?

Look up iConomy. It's largely just a base plugin, which enables iConomy support in other plugins. Basically, you install iConomy, which allows players to "have" digital currency, and a means to pay users. From there, you'll probably want to install other plugins that enable users to earn currency. Things like selling items at shops, slaying enemy mobs, and the like.

Many plugins also introduce new ways to spend money. One-use special commands, payment for using a portal through a teleportation plugin, stuff like that. Take a look around the plugin list, and see what you'd like.

Yes, i was looking at iConomy, it seems like it would be fun. So are there any fun plugins that go along with this mod that can use the currency?

I know it's not what you asked for but I suggest giving second thoughts to your economy plans and keeping it vanilla. You can make a decent makeshift currency using Iron, Gold and Diamond as currency markers. On my old server we used to do most transactions using Iron or Gold as a payment option and it really made the game feel more natural than seeing digits fly across the screen. That and having your treasure room being one giant underground vault full of Iron + Gold blocks everywhere always got a few surprised faces out of people. (but before you do that for the love of God make sure the room is protected by some other Mod)

ChestShops and Towny are cool. Chestshops definately.

I haven't played around with iConomy yet but I was in a server who used it and it was great. Set up locations for people in spawn to have shops that they pay rent on, they can sell/buy items from players.

I don't know if iConomy has the option of server shops but i think Essentails has one:

I use essentails on my SMP server. But not the economy, hell I just got PermissionsBukkit working :/.

There are a few. If you are going with iConomy I don't think it has anything built into it but I know that ChestShops is one of the ones I would start with.

Essentials is a great plugin, but it's packed to the brim with features. You can cut off everything you don't want, though. Just gotta take the time to do it.

My server uses the Essentials economy, but I'm going to be switching as soon as we leave our temporary Vanilla server.
