This plugin uses MCStats to gather statistics. It gathers only the standard stats gathered for most of MCStat's enabled plugins (for example: OS, Java version, CPU, country, plugin and server version). For details what exactly is gathered click on the graph below. To disable the stats you need to disable stats gathering for MCStats (set opt-out to true in plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml). This disables all the stats gathering for all plugins that use the default MCStats.
Thank you for using this plugin.
A plugin that allows you to play custom music on your server.
Fantastic plugin, I've used this for many years and consider it to be the superior option for MIDI playback on your Minecraft server. Due to all music files being kept server-side, it is incredibly easy to update the music your server uses with the plus side of no clientside updates being required (unless you use a resource pack for this mod and have updated that also, but you can get around this by making your resource pack one of the defaults for your server so clients download it upon connection).
This plugin can also be used to add various sound-effects to your builds, simply make a midi file with the sound you want to be made and then call that midi file with redstone when needed, for example an alert sound for elevators, trains, redstone computers, etc. However this depends on what resource pack you use for the sounds, I created my own for this purpose (and for gritty 8-bit chiptunes straight from a midi file, GXSCC style).
All in all, one of my favorite plugins. Half the stuff on my map would be defunct if this didn't exist.
Playing MIDIs in minecraft is a fantastic concept and it actually works really well!! This plugin can even play black midis like poppippo3 without lag! It could use some more work though; it's simple and limited and more features would be desirable. Note that not all MIDIs will work; some sound very good, some sound bad, some sound broken, and some just don't work at all.
