    # NOTICE: To use these placeholders, you need PlaceholderAPI and correct extensions..
    # /papi ecloud download Player.
    # /papi ecloud download Server.


    Implementing The Animations:
    In the default configuration above, we have an animation called "example", to include this animation in our hologram we use the placeholder "{ext:example}" This rule applies to all animations.

    For example, if we have an animation named "welcome-msg", the format for the placeholder would be "{ext:welcome-msg}"

    Creating a hologram: '/hd create myHologram {ext:example}'

    Implementing Placeholders:
    Make sure you have ProtocolLib and PlaceholderAPI before attempting to add placeholders.

    To make sure the placeholders update you will need to add refresh holders.

    Versions 1.9.3 and below:

    {r1} - 1 second refresh.
    {r0.1} 0.1 second refresh
    {r10} - 10 second refresh
    {r5} - 5 second refresh
    {r2} - 2 second refresh

    Versions 1.10.0 and above:
    {fastest} - 0.1 seconds.
    {fast} - 0.5 seconds
    {medium} - 1 seconds
    {slow} - 5 seconds
    {slowest} - 10 seconds.

    /hd add test {fast}%player_time%

    There are no editing commands provided with this plugin, all holograms are managed by the HolographicDisplays plugin.

    /hext reload - Reload the animation files.
    /hext list - list all loaded animations.
    /hext support - Check placeholder and protocol lib problems
    /hext about plugin information

    Alternative options include: /ext

    Permissions for command usage are automatically given to operators and the console.
    Permission for using the commands are: h

    What to do once you have installed the plugin:
    - Visit the plugin data folder and edit the animations.yml to your needs and then reload the plugin with /ext-reload
    - Create a hologram with HolographicDisplays and include the animation placeholders.

    Terms and Conditions:

    - Do not claim this resource as your own.
    - You may modify/make changes for private use. This does not include usage in any redistributed software without express permission by me.

      Check you have got the correct placeholder api expansions.. try:

      /papi ecloud download World
      /papi reload

      And see if that fixes the issue. Make sure ProtocolLib is up to date for your version as well.
