    The end goal here is to create a plugin that allows players to disguise themselves as mobs. I did some research and it turns out doing something like that is a lot more difficult than I thought and requires knowledge about things like packets and NMS.

    So, having never worked with packets before, it's probably better to start off with something a little easier. Any tips on how I can work towards my "end goal"?

    @X21_Eagle_X21 Do you know how to send packets to a player? I don't quite understand what you're asking for.

    @KarimAKL I need some tips on where to get started learning about packets. Everything I find online is either a theoretical discussion that doesn’t include a single line of code, outdated, or overly complicated. The NMS code is also extremely obfuscated for some reason which makes it very hard to judge what information is relevant.

    @X21_Eagle_X21 That is why it is NMS, it is minecrafts internal code.
    For what version do you want to develop?

    @timtower I would’ve preferred to code it myself but you’re probably right. Thanks for the link!
