AutoSneak- The Auto Sneak plugin to hide your name!

AutoSneak allows players to persistently turn on "sneaking", making them appear to other players to be crouching and making their name transparent. I'll carry this plugin up²date, because HeroSneak is abandoned. The new version only works with TagAPI


  • Type /sneak to hide your name while still moving at full speed!
  • Optionally specify a duration (in seconds) for how long the sneak should last, and a cooldown (in seconds) to prevent casting /sneak again too soon!
  • Grant Autosneak permission to sneak automatically on login - great for maintaining stealth even through a disconnect!
  • Use /sneak give [player] to let other people sneak.
  • Support for Permissions plugin, defining your own list of players
  • Doesn't interfere with the Minecraft sneak mechanic, which still allows players to slow their movement speed and not fall!


  1. Download latest .jar from this site
  2. Download TagAPI from BukkitDev
  3. Move both into your plugins directory
  4. Start server and edit the config.yml
  5. Save configuration file and reload your server


The config file contains default messages (use "&#" notation to define colors), options, and designated players to use sneak/autosneak (if not using the Permissions plugin).

This file is saved in the YAML format, so please be sure to maintain the formatting and change only the element values. It will be created automatically with default values if it doesn't exist.

Configuration Example:

##Set colors with &[0-F], so &7 would be grey
    sneakOn: '&4You are now sneaking.'
    sneakOff: '&5You are no longer sneaking.'
    sneakCooldown: '&4You must wait <time> seconds before you may sneak again.'
        duration: 0
        cooldown: 0
        refresh: 5

autosneak.sneak (Use /sneak to toggle sneaking status) (Sneak will automatically be set on login)
autosneak.exempt (User is exempt from cooldown/duration)
autosneak.give (Force other ppl to sneak with /sneak give [player])

    Any updates... it's been half a year, still hoping you remove that horrible TagApi dependency.

    Eagerly awaiting this update. With all other current sneak plugins, and older versions of this one, I have seemed to have a problem with opening doors, chests, etc.. while sneak is on. I hope this update will fix all that, and allow for the already perfect sneak on login past restarts.
