    Mean Admins: By Connor Mahaffey
    Version: 0.3.2

    Jar Standalone ("Mean Admins.jar")
    Zip folder with Jar and Mean Admins Folder ("Mean")

    Mean Admins gives admin players special administering abilities, as well as fun ways to kill some of those pesky users. Whether you use this plugin for good or evil is up to you, but it's the perfect way to help take control of your server.

    Permissions 3.x, PermissionsBukkit, and Multiverse supported!

    - Kill users in a variety of ways (lightning, fire, lava, dropping, tnt, etc.)​
    - Control the weather​
    - Quickly give/remove building rights​
    - Ride animals and other players​
    - Freeze players in place or surround them with blocks​
    - Spawn friendly mobs (Note: Friendly mobs become aggressive again after a server restart)
    - A variety of weapons (ex. point-and-click explosions!)​
    - And much more!​

    Note: This video is very outdated, a new one will be up soon

    Command Format:
    All commands must start with /ma, /mean, or /meanadmins
    For the following examples, I'll be using /ma (but you can use /mean or /meanadmins)

    /ma <person> <command> <param1> <param2>
    if it is a non-personal command, like weather or weapon, skip <person>
    Ex. Make everyone on the server (accept admins of course) catch on fire:
    /ma all fire
    Ex. Make it rain
    /ma weather rain

    For all commands, type: "/ma help list <page>" or "/ma help <command>" for individual command help - Command list coming very soon!

    Note: You must have the permission meanadmins.admin to execute any command!

    All permissions use a format similar to the command. To be able to use /ma user fire you must have the permission "". To use lightning as a weapon, you must have the permission "meanadmins.weapon.lightning". Using a * to specify all commands in a node works with both Permissions and PermissionsBukkit.

    List of Permissions

    Mean Admins will use Permissions 3.x if you have it installed. Otherwise it will attempt to use PermissionsBukkit, and if that isn't configured, will default to ops. If you are using PermissionsBukkit and do not want ops to have access to all commands, you must specify which commands you don't want them to have in your config.yml - ex. meanadmins.god: false

    There is only one option in the config currently. You can specify what item you would like to be your weapon by entering an item id. By default it is a stick (280).

    Other Important Things:
    - "all" commands will not affect yourself or other admins
    - You cannot use a command against another admin, though you can use them against yourself

    Known Issues:
    - No limits on spawning or dropping, which could end very badly
    - No way to fill holes created
    - Teleport may do half-heart damage by spawning the player partially in a wall
    - If you try to make an animal ride a player they just kinda attack your face (try it and you'll see what I mean)
    - Admins can ride other admins

    Future Improvements:
    - Add persistence for friendly mobs

    Alright cool :D Thanks for taking that into consideration. I always appreciate a programmer willing to listen to a few requests of his program's users :) And I will be looking forward to 0.3 thanks for the epic plugin :D

    Have you created a Permissions Node List yet? Or is it not compatable

    Connor Mahaffey

    Not compatible yet, but its coming. It'll be in the next update, which should happen in the next few days. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    With the new ability to play sound, there should be a command to play creeper sounds right behind players :)

    Connor Mahaffey

    Hahah I had tried out sounds in an earlier version, but it didn't work then. I'll see if I can figure it out because that would be hilarious :D

    Doesn't work with Mob Arena, they both use /ma.

    This is more fun though, so I can manage :3

    Connor Mahaffey

    It should work with MobArena, all except maybe the /ma command to access help, so use /ma help. Regardless, you can also use /mean or /meanadmins so they won't conflict :D For example, /mean <yourname> lightning would hit you with lightning.

    Glad you're enjoying it. Permissions, persistence, bug fixes, customizable weapons, and a weapon that makes explosions are all coming in the next update.

    Huh weird, maybe he removed support for it. Idk, we had collaborated so they didn't conflict. Oh well. And don't worry, if you don't have permissions installed, it will default back to ops having all the commands :)

    When I used /ma weapon [thingeh] I would get the command list for Mob Arena, I guess I was just too last to try the others :p.

    Btw, I don't use Permissions. It's too hard for me D:

    does this not work with build 860?
  13. Offline

    Connor Mahaffey

    Yep, just changed it from 860 to 935 and there didn't seem to be any breaks, works fine on 860

    Ok, I guess i'm doing something wrong, because none of the commands work. The weapons don't work and the other commands don't work ( like drop,freeze and all of them ) The only command that does work is /ma help list
    Also, I get no errors in the console

    Connor Mahaffey

    Well good, I'm glad you figured it out.

    sorry, I lied. turns out I can only use it on myself.

    Connor Mahaffey

    You can't use it on other OPs

    If I could record it, I would. I am an OP. I log on, I try and use the stick weapon thing. nothing happens. I try and use it on my friend. ( I de-oped him ) and tried the drop command and the freeze command. Nothing happened. Tried it on myself ( while still being an OP ) it worked. I could drop myself and catch myself on fire.

    Ok this may be a bug that I've fixed in the new (so far unreleased) version. Try doing a /mean reload and see if that works. If that doesn't work, try reloading the server (with your friend not as an admin). I use an old way of checking for admin that requires someone be (or not be) in ops.txt - if you op someone with the command /op it doesn't change until a server restart (I don't think). So try restarting the server if /mean reload doesn't work.

    @Connor Mahaffey When i used /ma weapon pig and my friend used a stick it was a pig also, does /ma weapon apply for all people?
  23. Offline

    Connor Mahaffey

    It shouldn't unless you op-ed your friend and didn't restart the server, or unless you are using a cracked client, and you and your friend have the same Minecraft username (and are technically the same player).

    My friend was already op and were using cracked client but we have different username
  25. I can help you with the permissions quick if you would like?
  26. Offline


    Ok, i got it work. I had to deop him, type /reload then /stop. Started the server back up and i could do the commands. Thanks
  27. Offline

    Connor Mahaffey

    Sorry, its probably something to do with the cracked client. Though you appear to have different names, bukkit probably gives you the same name, and so you share all your settings. Nothing I can do about that. (Psssst - buy the game!)

    Thanks! But I actually figured it out on my own. I'm working on the next release right now, just ironing out some last minute bugs. Permissions, new abilities, some fixes, and persistence should all be here by tonight. Thanks though!

    Oh ok good to know its nothing on my end.

    For updating i just replace the jar? 0.2 to 0.3

    Connor Mahaffey

    Yes, that should work.

    I also forgot to mention that admins.txt will not longer work. All users need to either be Ops or use Permissions.
