    Plugin category: Tools

    Suggested name: MenusAndLores

    What I want: I would like a plugin with the abilities of Hypixel and SkyMC's servers menus. Such as so: [​IMG]

    To go along with this, it would be nice to have it be implemented into the plugin Skript.

    Ideas for commands: /al <item/block> <file.txt>

    Ideas for permissions: al.admin

    When I'd like it by: Tomorrow or whenever possible.

    Must the Lore be in Text? Or must it be a picture?

    ShearsSheep | Shahblox | Maeyrl im pretty sure that it is *ASCII*

    You should not try to steal other people work!. If this was not a private plugin I could understand! BUT, this is a private plugin!. If it was never invented you wouldnt ask anyone to make it. This plugin should not be made, because im pretty sure this was a private plugin and there was money involved for making it. This plugin would take alot of work , working with ASCII and should not be made, copyrighted plugins!(private)

    Yup that's kinda true, most big Plugins, for example ( hypixel , hive ) plugins are created by their own hired developers. However, Item lore animation could be edited by changing to text, instead of Pictures. Heard of Compass Navigation? Its a plugin made to teleport via Compasses. Hypixel & Hive has it, But no copyrighted issues were involved. (Correct me if I'm wrong) . In my opinion, if someone created this plugin for him, it may not be called "Stealing other peoples work " as he just wants an animated lore binded to an object, not to some compass teleporting stuff.

    ShearsSheep But still it has the same feature as what those private plugins have. Im pretty sure if this plugin was found and alot of servers start getting them, the the developers will not be happy of the work they had to do. For me, i think that its not fair. Every server tries to be different from everyone elses, but not copying work done by other people just because you want it. I even hate people decoding plugins to steal plugin sources even though the plugin is copyrighted!. This post can continue, but in my opinion it is wrong to do this. and of course @Onlineids atleast 20 servers has this, and i bet they have alot of people on there server and probably is youtubers and popular people and probably has the same plugin developer that made the plugin for there server. Just think about it. It's not fair

    mactown21 so far using your logic Windows or some another os should be only there because developers made it and they definitely dont want any other os. Apple iPhone should be only touchscreen smartphone, etc.

    rsod Bukkit plugins shouldn't be made because there are servers using bukkit

    I understand your argument that it is frustrating as a dev when someone steals your plugin but it is inevitable. If it was something recode TheGhost from shotbow or something I wouldn't but with this its already too late, alot of servers already have this plugin.
    I believe the first to do this was codename_B

    mactown21 If you can find somebody about copyright then you have a point.
    Most servers have their own developers for customizability, not for private plugins.

    You know what I think?
    Were not all famous and we cant afford to pay someone $100 to make a dang plugin for item lores.
    I do not give a crap if SKGA has this or MINECADE if someone wants the plugin then they should be able to get it. No server should have an advantage over another.

    There are many plugins that have been made that were from servers such as Hypixel/The Hive and other servers. For example I believe they were the first servers with the toggling of items, like to switch from seeing to not seeing players, as well as clicking an item in an inventory to warp somewhere and the pet item thing. The main one I know for sure is the most copied is the Quake plugin made by someone who made it to be almost like Hypixel's. So I honestly don't see how this that bad but correct me if i'm wrong. Just my opinion also.

    For me it's a difference copy a plugin like quatk, sheep quest and similar and copying a plugin like that animated item lores, teleporter or pets.
    The first category is a unique special one, while the second is just a generic one that contains just basic plugins.
    Imagine if no compy had copied the first touch screen... Apple wouldn't exists in that world.

    But that's all a little bit OT, so back2topic: I wondered that such a long time nobody has requested that (I tried making that myown long time ago) and it isn't that hard (displaying this picture/animation).
    It uses an Unicode character that looks like a rect (as seen as pixel of the image). The harder work is to provide / decode a video/picture to this blocks.

    You probably like to ask the dev of the plugin "pictures in chat" or similar, it's the a similar plugin, but prints the image into a players (oh wonder) chat.

    codename_B

    An aside: I'd be very surprised if it was possible to do this in a sensible manner using anything other than Bukkit (eg: skript)

    He said it was hard to do without bukkit, with bobs image lib this isn't very hard at all

    Not that hard, just time consuming creating the animations.

    To prove the coding itself doesn't take that long, I've wrapped up this small jar file.
    The source code is compiled with the jar so feel free to have a look if you were wondering about how any of it is done.

    The process is really quite simple, but as of now I've only hardcoded two ugly looking frames. If any of you could create some animations using whatever characters you want I'd be happy to code something to read the animations off of text files some time tomorrow. In case any one needs the square character, here █.

    Best regards, White.

    EDIT: forgot to mention it displays the animations in the lores of apples...

    haha, sorry, must have compiled something wrong. Updated the link now ;)

    Also, the fps can be boosted to about five times as fast. Already boosted

    EDIT: Dropbox decided to crash on me so the newest version wasn't up yet, it should be now though ;)
    Another thing, as of now you have to reload the server while you're logged in to it as it only adds the players inventory to the list in the onEnable() method. Fixed it. Can't stay lazy for too long :p
