    No Perms No Config, only needs to perform one task, and must work properly with minecraft 1.7.5 and below

    all i want is a plugin that will allow me to track players with a regular compass

    When Right Clicked I want the compass NEEDLE to point and follow the nearest player, and display message " Currently tracking <player> "

    NEEDLE MUST POINT AND FOLLOW PLAYERS, cant stress this enough, ive gone thru a ton of compass player tracker plugins and none of them do this, when you right click the compass will begin tracking the nearest player and the compass needle will stay fixed onto that player.

    please please please, forgot to add this part, no commands for this plugin please, just a compass when right clicked needle will point torwards player untill player is found / killed,

    Please use the correct format.

    Plugin category: EXAMPLE

    Suggested name: ExamplePlugin

    What I want: I'd like to see perhaps properly formatted posts, or at least an attempt beyond the average all caps scrawl that has come to dominate this forum. What people need to learn is that it's much easier to read a nicely formatted post, even if it's a bit longer than it needs to be, you can easily identify key points via proper formatting.

    Also, skim-reading is much easier with paragraphs!

    Ideas for commands: No commands needed for this plugin.

    Ideas for permissions: player.canread. Set it to false if they can't read this post.

    When I'd like it by: Yesterday.

    He said the request itself is super easy, meaning that the request is not complicated, it does not require any commands/permissions, it only requires one function.

    Vault has many functions though, although I get your point but I've gotten plugin requests for survival games, people still think those are super easy, a compass player tracker would be much easier. :p

    A lot of people don't know if it's easy, they just think it's easy because probably a developer said it is easy to them, and that stores inside their brain, if the developer however was wrong for whatever reason, he just pretty much screwed up, or maybe he's seen it on multiple servers, who knows. ;)

    Thank you very much for being the only one with helpfull input, but unfortunatly i tryed this plugin already and it doesnt work properly with 1.7.5


    I am starting this request OVER as of RIGHT NOW

    Plugin category: Fun

    Suggested name: Compass Hunter

    What I want: I'd like a plugin that would allow a player to use a compass when right clicked will track players within a 300 block radius, Compass NEEDLE must follow players meaning when a player being tracked is moving the compass NEEDLE is moving and following the player aswell. would be nice if the compass "when right clicked" displays the name of the player being tracked / hunted

    Ideas for commands: No commands needed for this plugin. Maybe a reload config command

    Ideas for permissions: No perms necessary.

    When I'd like it by: When ever possible, I understand that coding ISNT EASY and i would be VERY GRATEFULL TO ANYONE WHO CAN FULL FILL THIS REQUEST

    This is a community volunteering service. Developers spend their time here to help out people with plugins that they would love to write. Bukkit has its limits that's why some stuff may be impossible. And mini games are rarely made just because of the time or complexity to make it that's why people may say no one will give effort to make it. I'm just saying everyone should be grateful for this wonderful service and forum we have here to share, create and spread ideas.

    I honestly couldn't agree more, and i do understand that mini game plugins are highly complicated and extensive, and i am very grateful to the bukkit community

    The point i was trying to make is that "in my opinion" the amount of Rude remarks in general is kinda staggering, and im sure thats not far from a few other peoples opinions as well.

    Im simply stating that i asked for help, and got condescending, rude remarks in return. and ive come to find that it happens quite often to others aswell

    I agree too. Some people can be (excuse my language) douchebags.

    Ok, you know what. Everyone stop arguing about what killyouslow should and shouldn't do or not do. What is happening is he has requested a plugin from the community which has a SIMPLE REQUEST. He has stated that it may NOT be SIMPLE TO CODE.

    So what is going to happen is that I AM GOING TO CREATE THIS, now unless you are going to help please do not have a go.

    Thank you for reading this and I will start on the plugin tonight when I get home.

    killyouslow I am sorry to say this but the dev may take longer than expected. I am now involved with a Survival Games plugin and need to focus a lot of time into that. I will attempt to make this alongside asap
