Player Count Message
This is my first plugin and has grown much beyond my original sights and has grown in size by a factor of 20 reaching into the 10's of thousands of downloads. The plugin has recently been adapted to allow animated server pings with moving text and a gif for the server Icon. I saw someone was offering an animated config for $12 a download and I thought, I can do that and better, for free. Then, the mega-upgrade of my original plugin had begun and hopefully you will enjoy the fruits of my work. So, if you want an animated ping for you minecraft motd, you've come to the right place. This plugin now works for bungee cord and Bukkit as of update 4.3.
Note, you need Protocol lib to run this plugin on Bukkit
These links will lead you to Bukkit pages, I documented them there and really don't want to do it again. Hopefully you enjoy this plugin and will give me feedback on what you think. This is the plugin's official Bukkit page.
Note, you need AnimatedMOTD v1.1.1 to run this plugin on Bungee cord.

The plugin the plugin uses tags and animation types to make it easier to animate a line or add information that would be impossible to set with a constant (such as the number of players online).

Also, if you want to use an outdated version of the plugin, check out the old pages
Btw, I will maintain the downloads on Bukkit's website because tracking two sites for updates is too much for me. The versions will work for Bukkit and Spigot as long as you have protocol lib on your server.
