    Hello, I have two questions...

    1. How do wrap up my plugin. I know it needs to be a jar and I know how to use jar commands.
    I want to know the format of my jar.
    My guess is... include the package containing the plugin and the plugin.yml file.
    If that is all I need I suppose I'm ready.

    2. Also I wanted to know if I could move an entity without teleporting them.
    I want to make a plugin where the user can fly or ride a flying mob, but I want the moving to be a smooth transition.
    In addition to moving, is there a way I can make a player jump?

    Never mind on question one. I tried what I thought would work (including the package and .yml) and it works fine :) Question 2 is up for grabs still. Help is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Nick.

    For the moving, just set the velocity in the direction your going in, and do that over and over. That would be my guess.
    As far as the jumping, not a real jump, but a very small upwards velocity boost would work.

    The problem with the jumping is that when the player lags it's not very smooth anymore, even if it's just very little lag :/ Mostly if you test it on your localhost testserver you won't notice that :p

    Thanks for the help :) Velocity seems like it should work, so I will try that.

    If you are talking about faking a jump with teleporting Pencil, I haven't noticed lag using my server :p

    If you need a good tutorial to teach the basics of making plugins check the resources tab in my signature.

    Thanks infected, it seems like the wiki was all I needed though ;). Btw, how do you get that silly purple rectangle with 'plugin developer' in it?
  7. After you submit a plugin and it gets moved to releases. PS : It's not silly, it's awesome :D

    I'm not talking about lag on the server, I mean if someone on your server is a little lagging, or simply has a bad connection he will find that the "fake" jumping very rough and not smooth :p I mostly never notice it on my server either because I have a good connection and I'm pretty close to it :D
