    I'd want to provide more info than blindly sending just an entity id

    How about adding an NPC api to bukkit first, then? ^^

    I am not sure if that happen ...

    Atm the NPCLib, based on top-cat, works very well ...

    I am sure that TagAPI can catch TagSend events also from NPCEntities, or?

    newest version:

    Packet20NamedEntitySpawn fired here:
    https://github.com/Bukkit/mc-dev/blob/master/net/minecraft/server/EntityTrackerEntry.java#L267

    I take a look into the MC code, I think it is a NPC problem,
    because the NPCManager add the Entity correct and the Server calls the Tracker,
    but somewhere the Server say "stop, that is no player" and it does not call the method fire the event:
    https://github.com/Bukkit/mc-dev/blob/master/net/minecraft/server/EntityTrackerEntry.java#L192
    called from:
    https://github.com/Bukkit/mc-dev/blob/master/net/minecraft/server/EntityTracker.java#L20
    called from:

    (Hope I am not wrong)

    I'm new to TagAPI,

    and I got a question.
    • Is it possible to make Player A appear in Green to Player B and appear Red to Player C?
    Another question is just about learning how TagAPI works.
    When does the Event get's called? In the documentation it says that "whenever one player is about to receive the nametag for another player", but this is for me a bit unclear, the event get's also triggers when someone log in, if I'm right and can't this cause any name updates that are unwanted like in the first Question. And when TagAPI."Reference" is called the event get's triggerd, right? Because player D must have no effect on the first Question.

    Hope someone can help me out.
    If u got any example or other documentation about TagAPI, please leave it behind. -Zanax

    You can make player A appear green to B, red to C, while no change to D, easily. Each event is for one player seeing another, so for each player seeing player A, there is an event.

    The event is called when a player comes within visible range, teleports to, joins near, or unvanishes near another player.

    Question: Does using a premade API (TagAPI) for an already premade API (Bukkit) make someone less of a developer and more of a builder? Does it demand less respect than making your own?
    What is the general attitude of some of the more skilled programmers on this site in regards to that question?

    If everyone wrote their own TagAPI implementation they'd all break each other and that'd suck. I don't think using existing APIs like this should result in any less respect.

    I want to be able to: TagAPI.setTag(Player, String); could this be possible?

    What's wrong with storing a map of playername->tag in your plugin and handling the event with that?

    iZanax

    I'm not completely understanding how TagAPI works.
    I want to call the event only by reference, because otherwise it might do some unwanted changes.
    And how do I change the Tag,
    that Set<> A sees each other Green, and sees Set<> B Red and otherwise..That is really a mystery how that is done with TagAPI.

    Each event fires for Player X seeing player Y. Your plugin should figure out if X should see Y as red, green, or whatever color and set the event to do that.

    So checking if getPlayer is in Set<> A and getNamedPlayer is in Set <> B then make him red?

    Yeah! getPlayer is the person who is seeing the tag, getNamedPlayer is the person whose tag you're changing.

    Is there any conceivable way to change a player's name tag and have them keep their skin?

    No, it's clientside

    Hi!

    is there a possibility to change Tags of a NPC with this api?

    mbaxter ʇıʞʞnq ɐ sɐɥ ı Retired Staff

    If the NPC fully emulates a player, yes.

    Hm, do a Citizensnpc emulate a player? (I would set Tags of the Citizens NPC witout changing his name (for the skin)) :D

    Get the player's location and if it's a certain location, then change their tag color

    Works great if I logout and back in again, but refreshing doesn't seem to actually change the tag, only make it flicker as it refreshes. Code:
    Code:
        @EventHandler
        public void onNameTag(PlayerReceiveNameTagEvent event) {
            if (plugin.tags.containsKey(event.getNamedPlayer().getName())) { //See if a tag is defined
                event.setTag(plugin.tags.get(event.getNamedPlayer().getName()) + ChatColor.RED + event.getNamedPlayer().getName()); //Set new tag -- RED is debug
            }
        }
    
    Refresh code:
    Code:
                         /**
                          * Handles TagAPI stuff
                          */
                         if (plugin.getConfig().contains("kits." + className + ".tagPrefix") && plugin.useTags) {
                             String tagPrefix = ChatColor.translateAlternateColorCodes('&', plugin.getConfig().getString("kits." + className + ".tagPrefix"));
                             plugin.tags.put(p.getName(), tagPrefix);
                             plugin.getServer().getScheduler().scheduleSyncDelayedTask(plugin, new Runnable() {
                                    public void run() {
                                        TagAPI.refreshPlayer(p);
                                    }
                                }, 100L);
                             
                         }

    Add some debugging in there to see what you're actually setting the tag to

    I force added the red chatcolor, so it shouldn't make a difference what the value in the hashmap is

    WHAT ABOUT PERMISSIONS!?

    WHAT ABOUT THEM!?

    TagAPI is just an API for other plugins to use. It has no config, no permissions. Other plugins (such as NameTags which is permission-based) can choose to implement it however they want.
