    How to use CommandTimer

    The plugin uses timers/tasks to handle all the possible configurations you may want for a set of commands.
    Each timer can have a set of commands that would need the same configuration. If you have 5 commands that need to be executed every 1 minute it's smart to put those together in the same timer. If you need a command that needs a different interval or maybe has permissions involved then you need to create a different timer.

    Creating a timer is very simple, you can simply use the command /cmt create <name> to create a new timer.
    Code (Text):
    /cmt create test

    This command won't do anything by default, you have to tell it what to do. To have a full overview of this timer you can do /cmt info <name>. Let's do that with the timer we created previously:
    Code (Text):
    /cmt info test
    You should see something like this.


    This is an interactive chat menu, you won't see messages that players send to you while this is open but they won't be lost when you click the close button.

    Here is a little overview of what each option does:
    • Seconds: Define the time between each execution
    • Max executions: Defines how many times this timer can run (-1 is infinite)
    • Gender: Specify who will execute the timer (console is console, player will let the timer being executed for each player online, operator does the same but without taking in account any permissions).
    • Execution change: Chance for the commands being executed
    • Execution for each user: If enabled and gender is console, the console will execute the command for each individual user (useful combined with PlaceholdersAPI)
    • Use Minecraft time: Instead of using the normal world time, use the ingame time for time specific commands.
    • Permission: Require a permission when the command is executed for a user. (When execute per user is true or gender is player/operator)

    You also have 4 other menus you can open to have more options:

    • Commands: Specify which commands to execute
    • Hours: Specify when a command should be executed (HH:mm:ss or HH:mm if useMinecraftTime is enabled)
    • Days: Specify on which days the commands should be executed
    • Conditions: Extra conditions for execution
    If you click on Commands you'll see this:

    Here you can enter the different commands you want to be executed. Click on Enter new command and type out the command in the chat, then press enter.

    You should now be able to see the command in the list. Add as many as you want.

    PlaceholdersAPI support
    CommandTimer supports placeholders from PAPI inside the commands but also has it's own placeholders. With these you can get the time before a timer would execute again and at which rate he executes:
    • %commandtimer_timername_seconds%: Gives back the defined seconds (you can also use secondsFormat to format the seconds in time)
    • %commandtimer_timername_nextExecution%: Get seconds until timer will run (you can also use nextExecutionFormat to format the seconds in time)
    Appart from the chat menu, CommandTimer also has different commands you can use. The are all covered by the permission commandtimer.use :
    • /cmt reload: Reload the configuration file
    • /cmt list: See all the timers
    • /cmt add <name>: Add a new timer
    • /cmt remove <name>: Delete a timer
    • /cmt info <name>: See details about a timer
    • /cmt execute <name>: Directly execute a timer
    • /cmt set <timer_name> <field> <value>: (More for developers) Set a field value from a timer file directly in game
    • /worldtime: This is more of a command for testing, it allows you to see your current world time

    Very-Good plugin.

    What is the real time used? (Moscow, etc.)?

      Thanks for your review! The time used is your actual server time. It should be printed out when the plugin loads

      Thanks for your review. I'm currently working on a version that will support 1.17, it's on its way.
      For now, you can simply use the plugin with the files directly. The internal commands don't work for 1.17 as you mentioned.

    Great resource, but it is not suitable for my use because of the lack of possibility to execute the command "/cmt set <timer_name> <field> <value>" from the console. I hope my suggestion will be considered, good luck!
