In-game Cutscenes

    I've been extensively searching for a mod or plugin that can create cutscenes ingame, but those I've found are either massive conversion mods, video recording mods, or simply inactive. So far, nothing provides the in-game cutscene events that I'd like to get.

    What I'm looking for is a plugin that will freeze a player in place (maybe turn them invisible or make them immune to damage as well) and switch their view to a camera angle that follows a set path (moving around locations, switching to different angles, etc) for a period of time. I'd also like for a soundfile to be played (although I realize this might land me more in the modding area and further from plugins) where a voiceover could be played to support the camera angle.

    My aim is to use something like this as an introduction to the server for new players, to give them a view of the starting city, a voiceover to explain the history of the world, and to give them a good first impression. There IS a plugin that was created about two years back (see this old thread) that seems to do close to what I'm needing. I was hoping maybe someone could look into that plugin and see what can be done about updating/improving it. But if not, a fresh plugin from scratch would do just as well.

    What you want would require mods, which = extreme loss of players. So may want to re-think it a bit. Parts of it like just teleporting a player to a location and freezing would work, but nothing "smooth" and good looking.

    RingOfStorms is it possible to change a players view angle?

    Do you know how to use it? What about a PlayerChangeViewAngle event, or would that have to be in a repeating task?

    There is no event for that, there is an Location class that also stores the direction that the player is looking, you could change this

    timtower How much lag do you think a bukkit runnable would cause?

    GreySwordz Depends on the timer that you are using, and how much you change in that time
