    Hotfixed SpyerFun on 16th of August. Version number of the jar didn't change. Fixed a bunch of bugs.
    SpyerFun - a plugin that allows playersto become invisible for some time. Each second the player "eats" one item out of the stack he is holding (hider item, sugar by default). While invisible, mob can and will still attack the player, although other players (exceptions are implemented) can not. The player will reappear when he either runs out of the hider item or switches to another item in his action bar, e.g. a sword.
    SpyerAdmin - a plugin that allows moderators to hide themselves for an unlimited amount of time, as well as simulating them leaving. This is a constantly updated alternative to Vanish, with much more features and configurations!
    Thanks to brafenschlug for this hilarious video of moderators playing pranks on players!

    • Now uses Spout! This plugin is no longer CPU heavy!
    • Allows players to become invisible for a set amount of time!
    • Adds more fun to PVP.
    • Allows administrators to hide themselves and simulate them quitting! Overrides msg,r and list.
    • Stops players from picking things up while using SpyerAdmin (see the configuration section)
    • Knocks players out from invisibility (SpyerFun) when they get damaged (see the configuration section)
    • Knocks players out from invisibility (SpyerFun) when they left-click a block (see the configuration section)
    • Now reload friendly!
    How to use (SpyerAdmin):
    • Use /spy to become and stop being invisible (toggled).
    • Use /quit to simulate you quitting/joining (toggled).
    • Place 1 piece of the indicator item into your quickbar. It will indicate if you are hidden or not. By default it is glowstone that turns into sulphur. You can configure that in plugins/Spyer/SpyerAdmin.conf.
    How to use (SpyerFun):
    • Right click with the "hider" item, every second it will eat up one item from the stack.
    • To add/change "hider" items, go to plugins/Spyer/items.yml. You'll see something like this:
      {352: 3000, 353: 1000}
      Items are separated by commas. The ID is the right value, and the time of usage (per block) in milliseconds(HAS to be dividable by 50!). So if I want to add clay to work for 10 seconds per piece, I will do something like
      {352: 3000, 353: 1000, 337: 10000}
      Note: by default, bones and sugar are used.
    Installation instructions, downloads:

    Install server-side Spout. No Spout client required.
    Extract the contents of the bundle(Spyer.zip) into the plugins folder.
    Bundle downloads:
    Download command line installer
    jars (open)

    Instructions for different setups:
    • Essentials: Download SpyerInstaller, put it in the server directory and run it from terminal(console). Go to configuration->4.
    • Vanilla Bukkit: go to (server directory)/plugins/Spyer. Open repo.conf, replace everything with
    • CommandBook: Special version for you! semi-direct Replace SpyerAdminConmmands.jar with this version!

    List of permissions:
    1. spyer.spy (Players who have this have access to the /spy and /quit commands, without permissions checks for op powers)
    2. spyer.seeAll (Players who have this can see people who are hidden, without permissions checks for op powers)
    3. spyer.fun (Players who have this can use SpyerFun, without permissions defaults to true)
    4. spyer.stopmobs.admin (Stops moderators from being attacked by mobs while hidden)
    5. spyer.stopmobs.fun (Stops players from being attacked by mobs while hidden)
    • spyer.yml - responsible for holding timing data. If syncWithScheduler is true, the plugin will use the bukkit's scheduler (recommended). If false, use Java timers. refreshRate defines the time in ticks (in milliseconds if syncWithScheduler = false). Add the optional field coolDown and set its value to your cooldown time in milliseconds (for SpyerFun, time in between invisibility uses). Add pickUp: true to allow picking up items while hidden in SpyerAdmin. To knock out people from SpyerFun when they damage an entity, add "onDamage: true". To knock out people from SpyerFun when they left click a block, add "onBlock: true". To stop invisible players (SpyerFun) from damaging other living entities, add "noDamage: true". Boolean "wait" allows/disallows the plugin to delay reloading to give them time to hide.
    • repo.conf - holds the url of the repository from which SpyerAdmin will update the script.
    • script.js - compatibility layer between plugins. e.g. Essentials script will simulate Essentials commands, Vanilla script will simulate the normal minecraft commands.
    • items.yml - holds the list of items used in SpyerFun
    • SpyerAdmin.conf - holds indicator item ids for SpyerAdmin
    Modifying scripts:
    1. Comment out all the lines in repo.conf.
    2. Modify the script.
    3. If you want to update the script, you can get it from [repopath]/script.js
    Version: v1.5_1

    Known issues
    • If you get a NullPointer when enabled (that contains something like "at nickguletskii200.SpyerAdmin.CustomHandling.<init>(Unknown Source)", then download this and put it into your jre's lib directory. You might also need to install Rhino. Disclaimer: this file is a part of the OpenJDK package.

    I can't replicate it. That may be to do with incorrect setup or old craftbukkit build.
  4. Offline


    One thing that would be nice is if /spy and /quit passed there commands to the console so we can keep tabs on our moderators by looking in the server logs.
  5. hey is there a way i can get an older jar that would go with cb 493 plz??thank you

    Hmm, maybe...

    The latest version should support it, and should work on newer versions too.

    Fixes on restart.

    Nice plugin, only thing is Dynmap still shows players as logged in and gives their position and movement when invisible. Can they be hidden from this as well?

    CB516 / Spyer 0.2

    And can the plugin be added to CraftBukkitUpToDate please? Thanks!
  10. Offline


    Going to fix this now.

    Probably isn't broken, but going to check (I have another WIP plugin to get chopping on)

    Dynmap already has this built in! I actually thought that I would have to reimplement that failed HiddenPlayerList class/communication interface... :oops:
  11. If this doesn't show hidden players in my users' playerlist command thing I might install it on our server :D

    This is a really fun plugin, my server is suddenly full of sugar-cane farms haha.

    Awesome plugin, would recommend to anyone! Love the /quit feature as well!

    Works flawlessly now!

    Nope, there is still a bug... I am going to fix it tomorrow, sorry, very tired... :/
  15. Offline


    yeah using 531 and it says it works but people still see me :( also /spy and /quit only works for OPs? or can i give permission to others?
  16. Offline


    See the usage instructions for info on how to add people to "spies" and "simulants" lists. Also, if the people are on "see all" list, they can see you no matter what.

    When I teleport to someone, they can see me until i redo the /spy 2x

    Ooooh... Sorry, I forgot a very stupid check... Ha ha ha! Fixing.

    Thanks! Is it uploaded and ready to go?
  20. Offline


    Yes! My ant script uploads it for me ( I am a very lazy person, right? )
  21. Offline


    I re-downloaded and I confirmed that it does work after I teleport, but once I came out of spy and tried to use it again, the game told me "An internal error occurred while trying to perform this command." Console error is below. This is when I tried to go back into /spy the second time.


    EDIT: A little more info; I can still do /quit afterwords and it mimics the logout, but the invis feature does not take effect. And then when I /quit to show back online, I get the inter error blahblahblah thing. This is all after it broke with /spy

    Okay, my code is getting very unorganised. Going to do a complete rewrite on saturday + going to separate the fun part and the admin part into different jars.

    Did a rewrite. Please post any bugs you encounter.

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.

    Oh nice - how much configuration is needed if your just using the Admin Version?
  24. Offline


    You will only need to set up "spies" and "see all" list. You can use the commands or straightforward editing to set the list. Please do note that the command configuration of "see all" list is only in the SpyerFun package.

    Mh... I've installed it today but on entering /spy or any other command you defined, it just prints "/spy" in the chat and I'm not invisible :S

    Hopefully fixed.

    P.S.: Ha ha, web proxy! I knew it!

    SpyerAdmin itself seems to work (at least it says something like "you are now invisible")
    SpyerConfig doesn't work (see Error) and the commands in the .yml won't do anything.
    At the moment there are way too many Players online to test this heavily, I'm sorry - will try tomorrow if it is just my fault :/

    Probably fixed... Damned plugin config files...

    Yep thanks, no more errors... but i think the plugin doesn't always work - sometimes I'm invisible when I switch to Visible Mode, sometimes nothing happens.
    Will do further tests tonight.
  30. Offline


    That is due to packet loss... I am not sure if I can do anything about that. The same goes with other minecraaft entities - sometimes you can see the falling sand get stuck, or a ghost minecart.

    Great plugin :) can you use a static download link or submit this to CB update so that it can automatically be updated, thanks.
