    Prank - Scare, frustrate, and troll players!
    Version: v2.0 [2011/08/24]

    Go here for future Prank updates!

    Prank is a Bukkit plugin for Minecraft which encompasses a number of pranks which can be applied to players on a server. Have fun with your users by scaring the crap out of them, frustrating them, and just generally trolling like a boss.

    Prank is the successor to my plugin Creeper's Gonna Creep, which initially provided only the creeper prank (explained below). As this release changes the focus of the plugin, I decided to make the name and commands more general.

    I mainly wrote this to familiarise myself with the Bukkit API and put to use the things I have learned in my Java class the last few months. I welcome feedback on the source.

    • Creeper (/prank creeper [player])
    Randomly spawn creepers around a player! Make them wonder why god hates them so much, as they mine or build and are plagued with a stream of creepers.
    • Tool Switch (/prank toolswitch [player])
    Switch the player's currently equipped item into the first empty slot of their inventory whenever they try to use it! Frustrate the hell out of players who can't accomplish anything!
    • Shocking Fall (/prank shockingfall [player])
    Whenever a player takes fall damage, strike them down with lightning! This prank can lie in wait for hours before it finally strikes... a player is innocently building or exploring when they make a jump that's just a little too high and - BAM, they are either dead or burning to death. They had better pray for water!

    • /prank [pranktype] [player] - Start pranking [player] with [pranktype] prank.
    • /unprank [pranktype] [player] - Stop pranking [player] with [pranktype] prank.
    Player can be online or offline

    • creeper
    • toolswitch
    • shockingfall
    Bukkit Permissions (Superperms)

    I'm sure I can make use of one or two of those! Great ideas, thanks

    Hmm, hopefully if you are running a server you are smart enough to handle .rars, but I take your point as they are slightly less common than zips. It's uploaded as a zip at the dev.bukkit site, all future versions will be zipped too (dev.bukkit doesn't let you upload rars, lol).

    when you use the lava/water bucket it should be when they pick it back up it water again

    great idea i just thought of. you pretty much just say "*persons name*, theres an enderman behind you" and it spawns an enderman behind them, which obviously SUCKS because the second you look at it....well, you know.

    btw, i know you cant do it now, i just mean when 1.8 comes out add this to it.

    new prank idea. it always fills up a person inventory constantly with the most useless item ever, i asked my friends and we all decided dirt, and so pretty much it fills your whole inventory with stacks of it, and whenever you try to take it out, it just replaces the empty slot with more of it. and of course it doesn't replace ppls items that they already have, because that would just be mean.

    Does it save pranked players to a file on disk? So the prank can persist through restarts/reloads? Is it doesn't, it should.

    Yes, but it is hard to handle .rars over an ssh agent. I know because I tried. But yes, I did see the .jar on dev.bukkit, thank you for that.

    Yes it does save to a cfg file. The next version is using bukkits built in configuration utilities, the current version is doing it in a slightly dumb way (which doesn't effect performance).

    Okay, thanks for fast reply. I didn't have a fast reply-to-reply, though. Wow, 16 minutes.

    Please add WorldGuard Regions support.
    Example: if you get to far away from the region, more and more creepers will spawn.

    or being in that area, or not in it, will cause the prank to happen upon you

    At the moment I'm very busy with university, but in two or three weeks I'll get back on to developing this. I plan to add support for one-time pranks (as opposed to only persistent pranks) and, since you mentioned it, WorldGuard support

    I know this is already done, but to have this altogether would be nice:

    Love the 'flying cows', or the 'damned' prank ideas above!!

    How about 'fake traps' appearing to be set by npc villagers. Minding their own business, all of a sudden jailed in a small basic jail (created and setup by the server admins) with villagers in area, makes it seem as they are jail guards. Instead of a jailed message, says they've been trapped by villagers for.... (configurable reason). I played that one on a troll today and he actually thought the npc villagers jailed him for using hax'd client (which he was)! Was hilarious!

    Implement a Herobrine prank. Every once in a while Herobrine spawns close to them, then despawns with a smoke effect.
  19. When I'm trying to prank someone it says the usage of the prank commands :mad:

    anyone? please?

    Well here is some ideas for pranks:
    arrows:a whole mob of arrows fall and hit the player
    too many items: his entire "backpack" (i do not know how to spell the name of the "e" thing) with gravel every 30 seconds
    DoomBaGettin:every type of mob spawns around him every o.1 seconds in groups of 10 (so it doesnt lag the server to death)
    tricky diamonds:have random sets of 8 diamonds spawn around him at least 10 blocks off.whenever he mines them,they can do different things. 1:they turn into stone 2:they turn into TNT with a redstone torch beside one of the TNT blocks 3:the diamonds turn into lava 4:when he mines one,his "backpack" clears so he has nothing 5:when one is destroyed,it he dies for no reason 6:all bad enchantments appear on him 7:he loses his food bar x3 quicker 8:all the diamonds turn into ghasts when one is destroyed
    hope you can add one of these.
