    I want to animate something inside an inventory. There will be a stained glass planes rotating around, like in a slot machine .I figured, that the best way to do this is using threads (correct me if I'm wrong), but there is a problem: I can't create a thread with arguments, and I need to have variable amount of plane types. How could I solve this, or what's another way of creating animated GUIs?

    @Gorbit99 BukkitRunnable is better then threads for this.

    @Gorbit99 BukkitRunnables are able to access plugins / variables.
    You can also extend it and add a constructor to it.

    @timtower Can you give me an example, or link one, so I can see, how it works?

    EDIT: found a tutorial, thank you for helping

    EDIT2: @timtower Ok, I have one more question, it seems like, that Thread.sleep doesn't work inside bukkitrunnable(Strops the whole server). What can I use to get the same effect inside a Bukkitrunnable?
