Adds a few new features to Research System

Supported Games

Research Table Options

  • Allows you to block items from researching if they already unlocked the blueprint.
  • (Already Researched Toggle) If this is true it will block re-researching and show them a message response.
  • Added Separate Earned amount from researching amount costs ( Research Table )
  • Added Success Chance Values for each item being researched ( Research Table )
  • Allows you to make money by repeatedly researching already researched items.
  • Converts players scrap into the selected currency system option.
  • Has a list of all default scrap cost amounts allows you to customize the cost/price of each research item!("Custom Research Currency")
  • This plugin now allows you to change the default research requirement which will be scrap as default.
  • You can set your own research times for each item (default is 10 seconds).
  • It allow's you to change the research amount needed to research an item as well, though you will always need the default requirement for the research button to show up properly because it is handled client side and cannot be fixed.
  • You can setup permissions to each individual Researchable Item. It's already Prefexed for you!
  • Just do "SetPermission": "vip" < Example

Tech Tree Support

  • Added Block Tech Tree Researching toggle Enabling this will fully lock out tech tree use!
  • If that is false it will check if a blocked item is in the blocked list and block that as well.
  • Added Permission support to the tech tree so any custom perm you setup applies to tech tree as well now.
  • Updated Lang responses so it only shows the permission name and not the whole easyresearch. half
  • Added First Time Research Cost (if unlocking in TechTree)


  • easyresearch.use -- Only players that have permission are affected
  • easyresearch.bypass -- Only players that have this permission can bypass any blocked item set.
