    Server Tutorial Plus offers a small but useful API for developers.
    For more info about the API, expand this spoiler:

    Code (Text):

    public class ServerTutorialApi {
        * Starts a server tutorial for the defined player.
        * Returns true if the tutorial has been started. False in all other cases
        * @param id     Id of the server tutorial.
        * @param player The player.
        * @return       A boolean that represents if the tutorial has been started.
        public boolean startTutorial(String id, Player player){


        * Returns if the player is currently in a server tutorial.
        * @param uuid  The players UUID
        * @return      A boolean
        public boolean isInTutorial(UUID uuid){


        * Get the current servertutorial of a player.
        * @param uuid  The UUID of the player
        * @return      The servertutorial or null if not in one.
        public ServerTutorial getCurrentTutorial(UUID uuid){


         * Gets the controller object that manges the players tutorial.
         * @param uuid
         * @return The controller object. Null if not in a tutorial.
        public TutorialController getController(UUID uuid){


         * This method is used to fetch the API with ease.
         * @return An Api Object
        public static ServerTutorialApi getApi(){

    To get this class simple use this piece of code:
    Code (Text):
    ServerTutorialApi stApi = ServerTutorialApi.getApi();
    //TODO: Store this somewhere for easy acces.
    The API also provides some events you can listen for.
    Code (Text):

    public void handlestart(TutorialStartEvent event){


    public void handlestop(TutorialEndEvent event){


    void handlePlayPoint(TutorialPlayPointEvent event){

    (Note: Only contains objects you should be using when using the API)

    ☐ New point types
    ☑ Block certain commands when in a tutorial.
    Language files
    Support for more custom points. (Priority)
    Rework the edit commands.
    Bind any mob to play a tutorial (good for citizens etc)
    Add placeholder API
    NPC's that can be right clicked to play a tutorial

    Server tutorial uses for plugin metrics. bStats
    collects some data for plugin authors like how many servers are using their plugins.To honor their work, you should not disable it. This has nearly no effect on the server performance!
    However, if you do not like all of this you are free to disable this function in the bStats config.

    If you enjoy the plugin: Please leave a review. It really helps my motivation :D

    I work on this plugin in my free time. I do not get paid for it any way, just so everybody can use it, but if you want to support me, and already left a review, than you can donate here:

      Author's Response
      You can use the citizen plugin and bind a command to them.
      That command would be '/st play <id> %playername%'.
