    A simple vanishing tool [Version 1.8.0]
    Vanisher is a fairly simple plugin, intended to do exactly what the name implies - vanish players from your view. This is ideal for Hub servers on which players may not want to have their screen filled with skins and playernames.
    The plugin is essentially drag & drop, with only a few configuration options. More will be customizable in the future. This plugin won't require many updates, however, I will attempt to update to widely requested features, as well as fix any issues that occur.

    Any feedback is appreciated, considering this is my first publicly released plugin, so I decided to keep it simple.

    Very good plugin.

    Suggestion: Add in the config an option to select in wich worlds it can be used, because if the server isn't dedicated, ingame players will not be able to see oponents.

    Works great. I have a suggestion though. Adding a GUI and making most players vanish except for set friends would be nice, and also be able to set if you get chat messages from hidden players. Just some Ideas!

      I'll look into it. Only issue that could come up with the Friends idea would be servers that have pre-existing Friends systems, and how to implement such a thing (I have no experience with SQL in Java :P).]

      GUI will be done, though!

    Really simple plugin that does what is says on the tin.

    Please add the option to have an on and off item and the ability to disable the message cooldowns.

    I've also found a bug in the message cooldowns where the cooldown message shows even after waiting the cooldown period. Also some times the item shows as a pink and purple cube.

      On and off item: Sure thing, v1.7.3

      Disable msgs: Ok?... v1.7.3

      Cooldown message delay: Please create a PM with me to further describe steps to reproduce this.

      Pink and purple cube: You have itemID and/or durability set to values that don't exist in Minecraft. That, or using a resourcepack with missing textures.

      Other than that, thanks!

      Reviews isn't quite the place to do this. I can't discuss things with your, and leaving negative reviews isn't helpful. Especially since you provided no information nor context regarding the error or steps to reproduce it.

    Really great plugin, can you add some options like "item-movement" - determines whether or not the item can be moved and "drop-item" - determines where or not the item can be dropped and can the cooldown message configurable? Thanks

      Sure thing! That shouldn't take more than two days. (It isn't difficult - just balancing schoolwork and plugin development)

      That isn't exactly a review. If something is broken - tell me what. If you want a feature - put it in the discussion thread. Reviews like this are useless and dont assist towards improving the plugin.

      I'll try to add that within a few updates. Next one will probably just be a slight rewrite of the plugin.

      EDIT: Updated! Now has a join item!
