I’m a SpongePowered core developer and plugin developer. I joined the Sponge project shortly after it started, and have been a part of it since.
My GitHub profile is available at github.com/Aaron1011
The majority of my work has been on the Sponge project itself.
On the API side, I wrote the Scoreboard API, the Economy API, and added support for server-side skin changing (via
On the implementation side, I’ve been heavily involved in fixing issues, from mod incompatibilities to event firing bugs.
My experience as a Sponge developer allows me to quickly identify and fix Sponge bugs that may come up in the course of the plugin. If part of the functionality that your plugin requires isn’t yet possible through the Sponge API, I may be able to implement it by bypassing the API (using NMS).
I’ve made the following private plugins on commission:
- Vaults - a configurable and flexible vaults storage plugin. It allows players to open a ‘Vault’ GUI from around the map.
- TradeSystem - A safe, in-game trading system. This plugin allows players to trade both items and money (via the Economy API) with another untrusted player.
- PixelScrolls - A highly configurable ‘clue’ plugin for Pixelmon servers.
- GoGyms - Pokémon GO gym NPCS for Pixelmon servers
These plugins make extensive use of the Sponge Inventory API. I’ve implemented special features like pagination, allowing players to easily navigate through a large inventory via in-game buttons (specially-named items).
Depending on the scope of the project, I may charge an hourly rate ($20/hour) or a flat fee for the entire project - we’ll work out the details before I start.
Bugfixes are always free, including after I’ve finished the plugin. If you’d like additional features once I complete the plugin, we can discuss pricing on a case-by-case basis.
Before starting the plugin, I require a Google doc explaining the required features of the plugin. This doesn’t have to be exhaustive, but all major components of the plugin need to be listed. During the course of developing the plugin, I may ask for clarification on individual points as the need arises.
Once I’ve completed the plugin, you will receive the following:
- The full plugin repository, containing source code and associated build scripts.
- Rights to modify, build, and distribute the plugin as you see fit
- A built jar of the latest version
If you mention the plugin on your server website or forums, please ensure that I’m credited as the plugin author somewhere on the site.
I accept payment via PayPal. You’ll only pay once I deliver the completed plugin.
