  2. Mas


    CraftPlayer is the implementation of the 'Player' interface in the Bukkit API.

    I'm not sure about DataWatcher, show where you saw it?
  3. @ItsMas_ I saw DataWatcher in corpse plugin.
    Can you give me an example When I can use CraftPlayer.
  4. I don't know that DataWatcher is but the CraftPlayer is the Craftbukkit* implementation of Player.

    * Craftbukkit is the actual runtime and Bukkit and/or Spigot is an API
  5. In simple terms, DataWatcher keeps track of entity metadata(visibility, gravity) etc. The wiki should have a list of tracked data.
