    You no longer need this plugin with the latest HolographicDisplays 3. Which has placeholders built in. https://dev.bukkit.org/projects/holographic-displays/files/3549616

    I have limited time to continue maintaining this. Please see alternatives such as Holographic Placeholders (https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/holographic-placeholders-holoextension.64535/).

    Supports 1.8-1.15.1

    Implement amazing animations into HolographicDisplays with automated creation of scrollers, typewriters and glowing text!

    It also injects your favourite placeholders from PlaceholderAPI (requires ProtocolLib)

    Video tutorial by SoulStriker_:

    - Simple and effective implementation.
    - High quality animation generation.
    - A ton of fully customisable animations.
    - Easily create scrollers, typewriters, healthbars and more.
    - Full colour support + multiline.
    - Special character support (unicode)
    - Support per player placeholders from PlaceholderAPI

    HolographicDisplays (Required)
    ProtocolLib (Placeholders)
    PlaceholderAPI (Placeholders)

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

    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

    /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

    Works perfectly with the dev version of ProtocolLib and 1.18 pAPI. I had to use this to get things correctly hooked despite pAPI supposedly having built in support, so I can attest that this plugin still works wonderfully. Kudos to the developer making such a sustainable and valuable asset.

      This was a really nice message to read. I would like to thank all the people who have contributed over the years to this plugin. I think the built-in placeholder support in HD will be even better!

      Have a great new year :)

    Works perfectly on 1.18. Thank you for not using NMS.

    For the people saying its not working on 1.18, make sure you are using the ProtocolLib version for 1.18 (currently its the dev builds. Check the top of the ProtocolLib page to make sure, and get a link)

    Needs update to 1.18. Works ok in 1.17 but not 1.18.
    Maintainer not active. It's not hard to update.

    The plugin works perfectly. (For those who ask to upgrade to 1.17 or 1.16, I STRONGLY recommend that you download the plugin and test it on your server, whatever the version, even if it is not written at 1.17 and 1.16, the plugin can work YES in these versions , on my 1.8 server I have plugins from 1.10 that work very well)
