 ComplexTurrets | Defend Yourself using Turrets! | [1.8-1.17] 2.0.1

No permission to download

This plugin allows players on your server to place multiple types of defensive turrets to maintain their homes/territories secured while attacking monsters, animals or even other players. These turrets will constantly attack enemies and keep them away from your lands. On the other hand, you can place a healing turret, which will heal nearby allies.

What makes ComplexTurrets worth it, is that you can create YOUR OWN turrets and modify a lot of their configurations including: Structure, particle effects, sounds, damage, speed, actions and more. Turrets are upgradeable by using money or items so turrets will have better stats on higher levels. Finally, ComplexTurrets has support with different Clans/Guilds plugins so turrets won't shoot allies from the same clan.

Spigot or Paper (not craftbukkit)
2. NBTAPI (To create items,
3. Vault + Economy plugin (Optional, to upgrade money using money,
4. HolographicDisplays (Optional, to use hit and information holograms, or CMI (

To install the plugin on your server place the plugins ComplexTurrets, and NBTAPI inside your plugins folder and start your server. Examples turret files will be generated in the turrets folder, you can use them as a reference or delete them.

Use the /ct give <turret> <player> command to receive a Turret Block. You can use the command from the console. Remember to use a valid turret name. If there is a file called Burst.yml, then the turret name is just "Burst".

2. Place the Turret Block on the ground and right click it. A settings inventory will be opened associated with this turret. Here you can upgrade the turret to have better stats, add whitelisted players, enable or disable attacking entities and add ammunition.


3. Default turrets require ammunition to shoot so you must access the Ammunition inventory on the turret and enable the Infinite Ammo option (This item will only appear if you are an administrator or have the required permission). You can also give you ammunition by using the following command: /ct giveammo <turret> <player> <amount> Ammunition items are placed on the same inventory like the image below.


4. Now you need to enable the turret in the previous inventory. If you want to add ammunition again, you have to disable the turret.

5. You can create your own turrets or modify the default ones, here is an example of a turret config file.


To a proper understanding of the plugin check the wiki below. Here you will find the whole plugin explained in detail.
