    Did you ever need to test whether or not your plugin properly works with namechanges? Or maybe you need a nick name plugin that works with every other plugin? Then this is the one you need!

    Bukkit plugin to simulate name changes by changing the username in the Gameprofile that Mojang's AuthLib returns while a player logs in. (This does not allow players to log in with wrong names when online mode is enabled!)

    This could be used as a nick system as it stores the fake names after logouts and restarts and includes checks for the availability of such name with Mojang. But the main purpose is for testing how other plugins react to namechanges without having to buy/own a lot of accounts (or to have friends).

    Please note that this is an extremely experimental plugin! Use at your own risk!


    Aliases: /namechangesimulator, /simulatenamechange, /namechange, /ns

    /ns set [<player/uuid>] <fakename> - Set a fake name for yourself or for another player
    /ns reset [<player/uuid>] - Reset your name to your original one
    /ns list - List all the fake names​

    Players with operator status have all permissions by default.

    namechangesimulator.command - Use the plugin command
    namechangesimulator.command.set - Change names via /ns set
    namechangesimulator.command.set.others - Set the name of other players
    namechangesimulator.command.set.used - Set usernames that are already in use by other Minecraft players
    namechangesimulator.command.reset - Reset names with /ns list
    namechangesimulator.command.reset.others - Reset the name of other players
    namechangesimulator.command.list - List all changed names with /ns list​


    Due to the nature of the "hack" used to change the name it might not be compatible with the Bukkit version of AlwaysOnline or any other plugin/server mod touching the session service.​


    The session service proxy is based on the Bukkit version of AlwaysOnline and this plugin is therefore licensed under the GPLv2.​


    Programming is time intensive and I would really appreciate your support!
    So if you can afford it or make commercially use of this plugin feel free to buy me a beer.
