Animated Actionbar / Action bar with Announcer and Joinmessage

    Tested Minecraft Versions:
    • 1.8
    • 1.9
    • 1.10
    • 1.11
    • 1.12


    This plugin allows you to announce a message via the new actionbar in the game,
    which will appear above your health and armor bars.
    One of the many useful aspects of the actionbar, is that it disappears after a few seconds
    (which can be adjusted in the config/command)
    so it won't sit in the middle of your screen and annoy you.
    You can also set custom join- and firstjoin-messages
    (basically "Welcome to the Server"-Messages" which you can edit and animate as you like)

    to enable the %money%, %prefix%, %group% and the %suffix% variable you have to install Vault and any Economy or Group plugin you want
    to enable PlaceholderAPI variables you have to install the PlaceholderAPI on your server - as well as use Actionbar v1.3.2.5+

    Another feature of this plugin is the Actionbar-Announcer,
    which allows you to time your Join-Messages and such, as you like!
    For example: you can animate a, let's say, Welcome!-Message and
    make it appear like every 5 minutes :)

    PS.: The time units are in "ticks" - so 20 ticks equal 1 second

    Very good plugin. Works like it should. I do wish though for the announcer part that you could add perms so like Donators for example could toggle the announcements from showing on the screen. It would be a good little Donator perk. I hope you consider adding it soon!

    Version: -new bukkit link
    From what I can tell it works on 1.10, You should also add an option for the bottom part of the config(the auto brodcasts) to toggle random brodcasts, and maybe even at random intervals of time set by the user(like a brodcast ever 2-5 min)

    Very Cool Plugin :)

    I have a couple of ideas for the plugin:
    - A Setting for the time a message is shown on the actionbar and a command to change this ingame.
    (Not the time between the messages. To be clear ^^)

    - A Permission to enable the message to be shown on the actionbar. Means that guests don't have the permission and can't see the message.
    (actionbar.announcer.get would be cool)

    - A way to set messages for different languages.
    (Exmple: for German messages and actionbar.announcer.en for english messages. And in the config you can set the permission you want for this messages. So its very flexible to set up for other languages.)

    -Another cool thing would be a variable for a specific group with a permission.
    (So when the group Supporter has the perm they would be count by the %support% variable. And this can be set up in the config very flexible would be cool too. :) )

    I know thats a lot of ideas and they can't be all added, but it would be very cool when the first one would be very soon ^^ But feel free to contact me per pm for details :)


    PS.: Can you speak German? Because of the video is for german and it would be much easier for me :D

    I think it would be a nice plugin if it would work! But it is resetting the config every reload and I don't know why... (v1.3.0.2) If it is just my fault please answer me and tell me how to fix it.

      This is not my fault - check if you setup the config correctly - and also download the newest version
