DisguiseCraft Logo

Tired of backwards EnderDragons? Upward looking chickens? Or some of the other bugs in MobDisguise? Ready to try something brand new? With DisguiseCraft we are taking a brand new approach on mob/player disguises by taking advantage of the advanced features released in the 1.1-R4 build of CraftBukkit!


  • Disguise as any mob
    • This includes: babies, colored sheep, sized slimes/magmacubes, tamed/aggressive wolves with colored collars, tabby/tuxedo/siamese cats, saddled pigs, villager occupations, and charged creepers
      • Also unnatural slime/magmacube sizes: bigger, massive, godzilla
    • You can also set the disguise on fire and hold blocks as an Enderman
  • Disguise as any player, including their skin, cape, and in-chat name
    • The item you are holding and arm swings are shown
  • Disguise as certain objects
    • This includes the vehicles: boat, minecart, poweredminecart, storageminecart
    • And the blocks: endercrystal, fallingblock (different materials)
  • No Spout necessary! Disguised players' names are not shown in SpoutCraft (This is because the disguised player's packets are not sent to other clients)
  • No Backwards EnderDragon! No messed up chicken head!
  • Permissions support (All popular permissions systems)
    • Multi-world permissions are supported
    • Granular player-disguise nodes
  • The player list doesn't show players who are disguised in your world
  • The ability to see through disguises is given with a permission node (disguisecraft.seer)
  • Disguises can fool mobs too! (disguisecraft.notarget & disguisecraft.notarget.strict)
  • Item-pickup can be disabled while wearing a disguise
  • You can disguise or undisguise other players
  • You can keep your disguise even after log out (Activate in the config)
  • Utilizes the Plugin Metrics service
  • All of the commands have tab completion
  • Developer API to allow for plugin integration

How to negate the disguisecraft.seer node with PermissionsEx

Or, how to make it so that you don't see the nametag of the person inside of the disguise!

  1. Open up your permissions.yml file
  2. Add the permission node "-disguisecraft.seer" to the group that is seeing the double disguises!
  3. Do /pex reload ingame.

Example pex file:

      rank: '1'
    - -disguisecraft.seer
    - '*'

    Sorry about that. We haven't done any testing for "noTabHide" yet.
    I might have to save it for after finals week :x

    @HorseWhisperer: Go

    I'm not exactly sure how port map works. Usually you use the format "<ip address>:25567" to add servers to your Minecraft client. What you'll usually want to do is buy a domain or use a DNS host service to change your IP into something easier to remember. (Personally I use noip.com)

    what do i type to join my server under server address if i host in on 25567 and use port map which gives me a longer IP as well

    The only issue I'm having is that players in tablist are not showing. I have "noTabHide=true" and protocol lib 3.0.0 is installed but it still won't work. Any ideas?

    @benneht: Go

    I think it may be possible now.
    It's all about whether or not we can fit it into the current system. Otherwise, we'll have to save it as part of the recode.

    Any possible way to put names about disguised player's heads? (when they are a mob, I know what happens when they are disguised as a player)

    Looking for some help with coding, have a lot of great ideas, but not the time nor manpower to complete them all. Shoot me a message.

    @HorseWhisperer: Go

    Is there a craftbukkit.jar file in the directory?
    If not, download one from http://dl.bukkit.org/ (alternate versions), then rename it to "craftbukkit.jar"

    i mean the start_server.command file not start.command
