Suggested name: ViewingDistanceChange What I want: It would be nice to have a plugin that let's you change the viewing distance (specified in server.properties) file without having to restart your server. Most larger servers have their viewing distance set to a lower number since that significantly reduces lag when a lot of players are connected to the server. However sometimes when you are trying to do certain big builds or are trying to make a video or just take screen shots the short viewing distance ruins the experience as the chunks that aren't too far unload when you get back so far. To take a step further it would be great to have the plug in automatically change the viewing distance to a specified number in the config. It can check the amount of players connected every time someone joins/leaves the server and then adjust the viewing distance accordingly. Example Config #players online = viewing distance 1-10 = 15 11-20 = 10 21-30 = 8 31-40 = 6 41-50 = 5 51-60 = 4 60-99 = 3 To be honest I don't even know if this is even possible without restarting the server, but I thought I would post it here anyway Maybe it's possible and/or easier if the server is also running Spout as that allows for more modifications? Ideas for commands: /viewing distance (3-15), /viewing dist (3-15) Ideas for permissions: viewsing.distance.change Willing to pay donate up to: $20 When I'd like it by: No rush, nothing that's absolutely needed, but I feel like it would be welcomed by a lot of server admins.
