    Hi guys!

    I'm new to Bukkit and this forum and I have recently installed VanishNoPacket.

    I need help ASAP though, the people on my private server can see me when I vanish. VanishNoPacket has been installed, and when I vanish a large amount of lightning spawns.

    The problem I have is that the Ops on my server can see me. I've tested it on 3 friends already, deopped them all, and made them the lowest rank, but 2/3 cannot see me, and 1/3 can see me.

    Even if they are opped and at the highest/whatever rank, the same friend cannot see me, but the other two can.

    Please let me know. If you need my permissions file then please PM me. Your help would be much appreciated ASAP.

    Thanks a lot!


    EDIT: If someone has a config file for this then please let me know, I would really appreciate your help.

    Definitely a permissions issue (had this myself too).
    Negate the correct permission nodes (the ones for the lightning and being able to see vanished players anyway) and you should be ready to go.

    Thanks for a reply guys lol

    Here's my config.yml.
    # VanishNoPacket
    # A fine choice of invisibility for the discerning server administrator.
    automaticforsilentjoin: false
    join: '%p joined the game.'
    quit: '%p left the game.'
    essentials: true
    dynmap: false
    JSONAPI: false
    spoutcraft: false
    checkupdates: true
    checkonworldchange: false
    count: 0
    colornametags: true
    permtest: false
    debug: false
    SeriouslyThisWillEraseYourConfig: 5

    I don't know whether its because I'm an Op, but I also don't want ops to see me.

    Permissions.yml, not config.yml. Like the one you'd get from PermissionsEx, GroupManager, or etc.

    You should not give yourself vanish.*

    I don't have a permissions.yml in my VanishNoPacket folder.

    Ok so if I don't give people vanish.*, then what am I supposed to write?
    The * means all permissions I believe.
    However, if they DON'T have vanish.*, will they be able to see me?

    There is a big difference between OP and the * node. OP gives you nearly everything on the server. Every single permission node, except those that plugin authors say "Do not give this to OP." The effects nodes are not given to OPs. The * node, on the other hand, grants every permission node available, regardless of that setting.

    Don't grant the * node. If you really do not want to spend five minutes setting up your permissions, grant OP on yourself instead.

    If you're the only person who should be able to vanish, give yourself vanish.standard and vanish.op

    If you want people to be able to vanish but not see each other, you probably want to give them everything in the vanish.standard group APART from vanish.see

    Ok but if I wanted someone to not see vanished players, would I do this?

    - -vanish.see

    By the way thanks so much for the link! I wouldn't have even SEEN it.
