    Plugin category: EXAMPLE

    Suggested name: AnimatedMotd

    What I want: this plugin is for making animated motd that is updating without player refreshes his server list

    Ideas for commands:
    - am reload
    Ideas for permissions: no permissions

    When I'd like it by: when you can

    Don't believe this is possible. The client sends a request to the server for the motd only once (when the player refreshes)

    Technically it can be done by using the obfuscation text code.

    Not even remotely possible.

    The way that the client fetches the server details is by sending the server a Status Request packet (0x00), the server then replies with a Status Response packet (also 0x00) containing the server's details parsed in JSON (something like this).

    You can read more here.

    This means that without the client sending the server multiple status requests the MOTD can not be changed.

    wooohooo :D when the servers ll have mod api this ll be possible, its possible with bungee too but i cant do it,

    Well, it is because it is a form of text formatting. Meaning it doesn't need updating. &k generates an infinite string of letters, which can be used to simulate "Animation" in a way. Which is why I said technically.

    That is an interesting wiki. I'll look into it. However, please read my response to timtowers.

    I have no idea how that even comes close to being possible... Maybe they paid Mojang a million dollars to add a special client-side MOTD for their server only... =P

    Moved to Alternatives Section since it requires an Alternative to be installed.

    It doesn't require an alternative. It works on alternatives. A small difference, but it's there nonetheless.

    I have not seen a single post that states that this can also be made using Bukkit.
    Every bit of posted Code is built against an Alternative.

    What do you mean an alternative? Are you referring to Spigot or Bungeecord??
  23. Offline


    Bungeecord is a part of Spigot. Either way this is not possible with an official build of CraftBukkit as far as I know. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

    I'd happy correct you. In fact, I already have - assuming you'll let me post a server IP (a test server)
  25. Offline


    No, advertising a Server is against the rules even if the purpose of posting the ip is to proof that a moderator is wrong :3.
    But Id be happy to see an actual Code Example which proofs that this works with an official build of Craftbukkit.

    Then I'm afraid we're at an impasse, because the code is not OS, and I'm not allowed to redistribute it (it's obfuscated in any case)
    Want me to PM you the ip then?

    No, all conversations must remain on the Thread. I also do not have the time nor do I want to join a Server. A Server is not a proof that it is possible with Bukkit, you can fake the Server Software name. And since this seems to lead nowhere I think we should maybe stop right here. I would really love to see Code for this, but I do respect other persons copyright.

    It is possible, just use some reflection or replace loaded classes in java of the craftbukkit.jar ;)
