IdleBot — Step up your AFK game
An Essential Discord/Minecraft AFK Utility
By MetalTurtle and Camshaft
Roadmap: These are some planned features for IdleBot that have not yet been implemented. For a more complete list, see our GitHub Project.
- Alert on death
- Alert on damage
- Alert when a player's inventory is full
- Alert when a player reaches a certain coordinate
- Alert when a player reaches a certain experience level
- Alert when a player gets a certain advancement
- Alert when a player breaks a tool
- Integration with the DiscordSRV plugin
Story: We enjoy Minecraft for its technical aspects and often AFK to obtain more resources in the game. This was effective, but we were limited by the control we had over monitoring our AFK-ing. We spent countless hours scouring the internet, looking for possible solutions to our struggles, but to no avail. Finally we decided that this type of tool could be realized as a Spigot plugin. Using our previous experience of building plugins, we decided to collaborate to create this utility. We hope you can step up your AFK game too!
- Permission support for admins
- Full GUI control for players in-game

NOTE: When updating IdleBot, we recommend removing the config.yml file in the IdleBot directory and letting it re-generate by starting and stopping the server.
Please see the GitHub Wiki to learn how to configure and use IdleBot.
