    It's because you have the * node. All you need to add to your permissions is a single line. Negate the node: vanish.effects.*

    And the problems will go away.

    Sorry, I'm still new to how to mess with the permissions and things. For us it is
    Owner:
    Permissions: '*'
    So how would we negate that code?

    However you negate it in your permissions plugin. It should be documented there.

    Who's shitty idea was it to add the lightning anyway, that link you keep referring to is 403'd.

    And let's be honest, there's 65 pages of people asking how to turn it off. You know why? NOBODY FUCKING WANTS IT.

    What the heck^?
     
  6. I know, right? There are two plugins that use the vanish API in bukkit, this one and another. This is mbaxters' plugin, and is free to add whatever he wants to it, and I do recall it being stated that the explosions and lightening effects were added in due to a request from multiple people, so it is something that was wanted by enough people to have it included.

    If someone doesn't like it, read the freaking documentation for the plugin and the permissions plugin that is being used and turn the effects off, or use another vanish plugin that doesn't have it.

    It's not rocket science. I use VNP, and I normally only use the smoke effects. Because I apparently have reading comprehension, I was able to experiment with the other effects, decide what I wanted to use, and disable the others (and while using PEX and the infamous * node to boot!).

    It's things like this, as well as what I've been seeing in the 1.3.1 bukkit thread and on twitter, that makes me embarrassed and ashamed to call myself a server admin/owner and be loosely associated with these humans.

    Oddly enough there isn't 65 pages of people asking how to turn it off. Though the number of pages is alarming. Do that many server admins truly ignore documentation?

    Also, which page is 403'ing, I'd like to fix that.


    The lightning is disabled by default, you have to explicitly enable the lightning to get it. Yes, using the * node is explicitly agreeing to get EVERYTHING. If you want nearly everything, minus things that plugin developers think aren't desirable for everyone (such as the lightning effect), you should be giving yourself OP not the * node.

    I was getting it as op, which is weird. I dont have *. Anyway, I was just a little angry that when i had went to add the - -vanish.effects.* it has reset everyones groups (fuck pex). I can't find that page anymore, but it referred to one of your dev.bukkit.org vanish forum posts.

    PEX is just a buggy mess, I'm not in the least bit surprised you had trouble. Sorry for it, though :(

    Hello! Love the plugin but I had a request if you could please consider it. Okay here it is: I was thinking you could make this plugin compatible with essential's list command. For this, the reason is, we use vanish to spy on suspicious players who we think are hacking do to high alerts from our anti hack plugin. The problem with vanishing for this situation is that a hacker could simply do ./list from essentials plugin and see any staff that are on. I would love to keep this feature from essentials but would love to have vanishnopacket, in anyway possible make list players vanished as well, like how you have it vanished from the Online List for Minecraft. Thank you for your consideration and possibility of making this work! If not, well thanks for making this plugin!

    Have you enabled the essentials hook in the VNP config? If so, and it's still showing you to other players (it might show you to yourself) then report it to the essentials team.

    You've given yourself vanish.*

    Give yourself just the permission nodes you want, or if you insist on using the * node, negate the ones you don't want.
     
  15. Chest viewing when vanished currently doesn't work with enderchests. Is this available in a dev build, or should I open a ticket? :)

    only give yourself the permission nodes for features you want enabled on login. Don't grant nodes for stuff you don't want on login.

    A list of nodes is available for reference at http://vanishnopacket.github.com/permissions/

    I've heard from my staff that the new sounds are noticeable when vanished via the other players (foot steps, falling, etc.)

    So this plugin is dead then? There is no sense in being invsibible if every user can tell you're here by the sounds.

    This plugin is in no way dead. You only make footsteps when you're not flying. ;)

    Version 3.12.1 released. Just a minor update fixing a JSONAPI bug.

    I did that and it didnt fix anything mate. Any other suggestions? I am the Owner in the Owner group and am OP (obviously) and I added -vanish.effects.* to my group and still blow up like it's nobodies business. I would definitely like to use this to spy on my players again but I lost that config you had rewritten and none of your other "fixes" seem to do anything. If you still have a copy of the config that negates the effects I would love it. In the meantime I'll just unzip the plugin and look through it?

    The problem is with your permissions setup. If your 'owner' group gets the * node, get out of the owner group. Op is not the same as the * node, but is the correct way to grant yourself almost all nodes by default. The only way you're getting lightning is if you have granted yourself the node for it, through vanish.* or *. Ask your permissions plugin folks for help.

    Well by default actually no nodes are distributed but I'll try to devise a new group for myself without those nodes. On a side note however, /vanish fakequit and /vanish fakejoin do not seem to work, Is that normal?
