MultiLineAPI is an easy to use API that allows the server to display a unique second line of text for each player (and soon entities as well), and allows the player's nametag to be changed (without the limitations of other methods - see the table on the documentation page for more information).
Compatibility and Dependencies
MultiLineAPI currently requires ProtocolLib. See the releases page for recommended builds. This is due to a Minecraft server limitation - Players (or any entity) who have passengers are unable to teleport. For this reason, ProtocolLib is used to send the mount packets to the client manually, so the player appears to have the entities mounted on their head but is still able to teleport. ProtocolLib is also used to send packets which prevent a player from seeing their own tags.
MultiLineAPI does not have any commands.
MultiLineAPI does not have any permissions.
Rarely, the entities can become separated from the player. If this happens, they will appear to follow the player around at Y=-10. Please report any occurrences of this bug using the issue tracker below.
MultiLineAPI is designed as an API, and thus does not include any noticeable differences when first installed (Except vanilla scoreboards will no longer show below the name) - you must also install a compatible plugin. API documentation is not currently available, however, the API is fairly simple and JavaDocs are available here.
