    This is extremely similar to a request by Phoenix_Buster, which is why I copied/pasted much of his post. The main difference is that I would need it for the 1.8.3 Spigot patch for CraftBukkit.

    Plugin category: Fun | Mechanics | Role Playing

    Suggested name: NewSkin

    What I want: I'd like a plugin which would add the function of in-game skin changing, without the need for logging out. There used to be a plugin which did this, but it required the use of Spoutcraft, which is now very out of date and incompatible with just about everything.

    Players can type a command, such as "/skin refresh" or "/skin r", which would refresh the skin which they would upload to To change skins, a player would simply need to upload the skin they wanted to, like usual, then type the command to apply it without the need for closing out of Minecraft and logging back in.

    In the thread I referenced at the top, they figured a way to do this by having a player's username be changed in some way, and then switched back to the original, forcing the skin to be refreshed from the Mojang servers.

    Ideas for commands:
    • /skin refresh [username]
    • /skin reload - Reloads plugin configuration
    Ideas for permissions:
    • skins.use - Basic permission for refreshing one's own skin.
    • skin.use.other - Admin permission for changing the skin of another user, with a command like "/skin refresh [username]".
    • skin.reload - Allows for admins to reload the configuration file if needed.

    When I'd like it by: The server I would use this for is currently being developed, so whenever possible.

    I would appreciate this as well. I would rather use 1.8 than 1.7.10, but the latter seems more stable, so it looks like that's where I'm headed.
  3. In case anyone would like to make this, it's worth noting that I fulfilled the request for @Phoenix_Buster's 1.7 version. My plugin is open source (although granted I've not explicitly put a license on it *shrugs*) so if anyone wants to use that as a base, go ahead. I don't support alternatives though, so won't be doing this myself.

    Just bumping really quick, after the weekend.
