    Plugin category: Misc

    Suggested name: Ghosts.

    A bit about me: Hello, I'm 2zxr1 owner of two servers, we're working on a plugin called advanced pvp and we need to create fake users (ghosts) that can attack people. We have created the npc already but just need to use the tab list to scare noobs.
    What I want: I want a plugin that can create fake player names in the tab list that shows on the queory(It shows A=<B players) please include the source

    Ideas for commands: /playercreate, /playerremove

    Ideas for permissions: This should be a default: OP permission.

    When I'd like it by: When ever you can do it.

    Similar plugin requests: None.
    One maybe two commands.

    P.S. (I'm only good at creating quite simple plugins like block manipualtion to walk on water) we need a plugin developer.

    This is quite simple, you could probly use 50-200 lines of code.

    In Essentials, set the Nickname-Prefix to '' (Nothing)
    In Essentials, change-playerlist: true
    Then just type /nick {name you want} and it will appear in the Tab-Playerlist.

    There is also MobDisguise which can let you appear as (for example) Notch.
    So people will see Notch inGame, in the TabList, and also via /msg

    --- EXTRA---
    If you also want people to appear in Chat as a person, you just set a formatting in Essentials for a Group:
    FakePerson: '&9[Member]&f Notch&7:&f {MESSAGE}'

    Then you can just add yourself via Groupmanager with: /manuadd {name} FakePerson

    Of course you must create the Group in groups.yml like this:
    default: false
    permissions: []
    - member
    prefix: '&f'
    build: true
    suffix: ''

    Then nobody will ever think that you are a fake or whatever :)

    Assuming this isn't a thinly veiled attempt to fake how many users are online, he seems to want NPCs that occupy the playerlist, not a disguise for himself.

    It's an interesting idea, I suppose... I've never been entirely clear on how you create an artificial player though, and haven't had any practical use for it so far so I can't say how to actually do this, except that it is possible.

    It takes a bit of hackery-pokery.

    PM me and I'll let you know how I did it.

    Don't... tempt me B! I dare not take it. Not even to keep it safe. Understand, B. I would use this code from a desire to do good... But through me, it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine.
