    Hi dude, i was finding some plugins can avoid afk machine recently. On my server, some player use afk machine and do nothing useful.
    I found the afkTerminator could be the best choice, but it doesnt work on my server, it throw a exception and has no effect.
    Maybe i should make such a plugin myself? I have written severals plugins, but i dont know how to avoid afk machine.
    Plz help me, THX.

    You could start by mentioning what an afk machine is, as you aren't very clear.

    An AFK machine is usually a flow of water in some sort where it circulates so you carry on moving and don't get kicked for idling.

    Here's an example:
  4. @17xDillz1997 Easier ones than that, just make a line with a fence in the floor at the end with water flowing.

    @deluxghost If the player is in water for more than 10 minutes or something kick them.

    @bwfcwalshy What if they're swimming in an ocean or something? I'm sure there's some better way...
  6. @nverdier Yeah but they should use a boat :p

    No idea if there's really a better way.

    @bwfcwalshy True, true. Well if there is a better way, then I assume it'd be super technical :p. But hacked clients could get around this for sure... I don't really know a lot about that though.

    I know this kind of afk machine, but as I know, there are many ways to make an afk machine.
    Like swimming, riding pig or horse, fishing, riding a minecart, and so on, even some of them can give a player many many exp and items.
    I think avoid all of this kind of partten is so hard.
    Maybe ask players a captcha every 10 minutes is a useful suggestion?
  9. @deluxghost That will just get annoying for the players who just like to play for hours.

    There could be a way to possibly recognise a player in a certain chunk for X amount of minutes using factions API. It's pretty hard to prevent this.

    Then again, this isn't accurate as they may actually be playing in that area.

    @17xDillz1997 But they could also make an afk pool that goes cross-chunk :p
