A SETTINGS file may also be a configuration file used by iConomy, a virtual economy plug-in for Minecraft. It contains plain text data used to set how iConomy provides and displays virtual currency, as well as the database iConomy uses to track players' currency. In more recent versions of iConomy, SETTINGS files have been replaced by .YML files.

More Information

Minecraft is a 3D construction and exploration game in which players can build structures, craft items, and fight enemies, among other things. Additionally, players can easily customize the Java version of Minecraft, available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, via a variety of player-created plug-ins.

iConomy is a Minecraft Java Edition plug-in that allows players to set up a virtual economy on their multiplayer Minecraft servers. It was originally developed by Nijikokun, but has since been forked and iterated upon by other developers.

Previous versions of iConomy stored setup and economy configuration settings in a SETTINGS file. However, iConomy 5 stores configuration settings in a YML file named Config.yml.

How to open a SETTINGS file

You can open a SETTINGS file with Microsoft Notepad, Apple TextEdit, or any other text editor, to view and edit the iConomy settings it contains.

While you can use SETTINGS files with previous versions of iConomy, current versions require you to specify your iConomy settings in a YML file named Config.yml. Then, you should place your Config.yml file in the iConomy directory located on your Minecraft server.
