    This is a fork of Reconnect fully compatible with waterfall.
    Note: While this supports older server versions such as 1.8 you should still use the latest version of waterfall.
    It comes with many improvements over the original version such as much needed stability and reliability improvements.
    Most of the code has been completely rewritten now with much better stability and behavior.

    • Reconnect all players when a server restarts - you don't need an additional limbo server.
    • Prevent Players from being kicked to lobby.
    • Move the affected players to the fallback server or kick them from the proxy, if the server doesn't start within a specific time period.
    • Send configurable Action Bar and Title bar messages with support for custom animation.
    • Configuration reload command.
    • Supports definition of custom kick trigger messages with regex support.
    • Add servers you wish this plugin to ignore.
    • Help prevent server overloads by configuring how quickly people should reconnect.
    • Should work with other plugins on both the proxy and the server without issue.
    • Has a basic developer API to interact with.
    • Open source

    1. Drop plugin in plugins folder of proxy.
    2. Restart proxy.
    3. Ensure shutdown text / regex matches your servers shutdown messages otherwise edit and reload plugin

    Though I'll do my best to support you on here It'd be easier to manage issues if you'd head over here.
    Do NOT use reviews for reporting issues. I probably wont address them if you do.

    Thank you for implementing the finer control for which servers are auto reconnect!
    This is one of those plugins which is a must-have in my opinion.

    This plugin was way better than I expected, based on my previous experiences with other reconnect plugins.

    For a player, it looks like they are still in the server, yet everything they do won't get passed back to the server. As a tip to other server owners, it might be wise to make sure players know that whatever they do won't be saved.

    Pues bueno xd, no llego a comprender este complemento.
    No se si es compatible con Autorestart o no funciona.

      El addon funciona detectando un paquete de baneo del servidor que tiene un mensaje que coincide con la regex en la configuración. Si coincide con la regex de la configuración, el jugador no será expulsado a un servidor del vestíbulo o fuera del juego. En su lugar, será reconectado al servidor cuando éste esté en línea.

      I can't read minds. Perhaps before you leave a negative review you tell me that you're still having this issue (That now i look back on what you said it may be an incompatibility with another bungee plugin, perhaps some slot setter or something.)

    Truly remarkable plugin!

    I know I ask a lot but could u add the same thing when the entire bungee/proxy server is restarting? Not only spigot server player is connected on.
    I understand this might be genuinely impossible. But that's just my suggestion :D

      It may be possible by making reconnect create a new process of itself when the proxy shuts down and steals all connections before reconnecting them.

      I'll look into it when I get the time.

    It is very rare that a plugin comes around that is so simple, yet so awesome. This is one of those. I cannot tell you how impressed I am. The plugin is lightweight, worked instantly with no configuration, and has impressed every one of my players.

    As a server admin, I don't have to add a fallback server, and then tell my players to connect to hub. I don't worry about a crash or a restart fucking my players over.

    This plugin, this plugin is the shit.

    And, best part is that the plugin dev is super responsive.

    Add this to your server, There is literally 0 reason not to.
