OnTime

Now every MineCraft server can track the playtime (current login, daily, weekly, monthly, and all time) for all players with this powerful, full function plugin. With OnTime a “top 10” list can be generated in game, current and total playing statistics can be displayed (also in game), and daily/weekly/monthly reports of all players can be generated and viewed (off line).

Administrators can define OnTime Rewards which will result in econ amounts, items (including enchanted items and potions), item kits, group add/delete, group promotion/demotion, permission grant/denial, command executions, loyalty points, personalized messages, and XP to be automatically issued to a player when they have achieved a specified amount of daily, weekly, monthly, or total playtime on the server.

Rewards can also be issued when players refer other players to the server, voted for the server, played for a specified number of different days, been absent from the server for a specified number of days, shops with their accumulated points or wealth, upon player's death, or they achieve status as a top player. A built in Votifier Listener makes issuing of rewards for web-site voting a snap. Vault is used so OnTime Rewards and permissions are supported by multiple economy and permission plugins.

Plugin Notes

IMPORTANT NOTES on V3.13.x

While Bukkit v1.7.9-R0.2 is listed as a compatible release with OnTime V3.13.4, this version still does not have full support for UUIDs. So while no issues or problems are expected, there may still be some compatibility issues with other plugins that do have full UUID support. OnTime V4.0.0 is still in the works and should be out before too long.

The "online tracking" function DOES NOT WORK properly in a multi-server configuration. If you are using a single OnTime MySQL database to store data from multiple servers, conflicts will arise between the servers, and errors and some server lag may result. Until I can get this corrected, please disable this function on all multi-server systems.

From OnTime/config.yml:

# Enable if Online player status should be tracked in MYSQL Table
onlineTrackingEnable: false

OnTime v3.13.x is compatible with Bukkit v1.2.5! So Tekkit Classic or other Bukkit v1.2.5 based servers can enjoy the FULL CAPABILITIES of the OnTime and its companion plugins!

OnTime will automatically modify the contents of your config.yml, playerData.yml, and output.yml when you upgrade from any release previous to v3.13.0. OnTime will put a copy of your current versions of these files into the plugins/OnTime/backup folder prior to this update, so you can revert back if you find the need to downgrade back to an earlier version of OnTime.

If you are using OnTime V3.9.0 or later with CraftBukkit 1.6.2-R1..0, the definition and use of enchanted items as rewards will not function correctly. There was a change in the CraftBukkit enchantment functions that make it incompatible with OnTime, and I have not had time yet to address this issue.

Please see the release notes page for additional information about changes that have occurred since your last upgrade.

"ontime.*" Permission Group

In v3.11.0 support for the "ontime.*" wildcard permission has been removed. This was causing problems based on how OnTime sometime uses negated permissions. This has been replaced with better defined 'recommended' wildcard permission sets for 'admin', 'moderator', and 'player' roles.

ontime.track Permission

In v3.10.0 a new permission string ("ontime.track") was added, which allows admins to enable/disable OnTime tracking of individual players. When this is set to "false" OnTime will not process players upon login, nor will it create OnTime records for new players. This permission is "true" by default, and most permission plugins will pick up this default setting, and server owners will see no change from previous versions of OnTime. But some permission plugins (e.g. bPermissions, others?) do not pick up the default and treat this as "false" for all players, which effectively disables the OnTime plugin. In this case of such permission plugins, the "ontime.track" should be added to the base set of permissions for all groups whose users are to be tracked by OnTime.

Online Support

If I am online you may find me here for IRC

bpermissions plugin compatibility

  • Please make sure you are using a version of Vault (v1.2.24) or later in order to maximize the compatibility between OnTime and bpermissions.
  • If you are going to use OnTime rewards, make sure that the "groups:" keyword is set to "- all" instead of "- global" when using bPermissions.
  • Make sure to add the permission string "ontime.track" to your base group, or all groups for which you want tracking enabled.

Integration with AFK Terminator

I have an independent plugin "AFKTerminator" that detects and potentially eliminates AFK Machines. An "AFK Machine" allows a player to avoid "AFK" detection through continual movement. See the [|Other Function] page for more details.

Integration with OnSign

There is a second companion plugin for OnTime, which I have named OnSign. OnSign allows players to create MC signs that will show a player's current online/offline status, time of last login/logout, and their daily/weekly/monthly and total scores for playtime, votes, and referrals. With OnSign you can also create signs showing the "top" players for playtime, votes, and referrals. With OnSign v1.3.0 or later OnSign supports signs that interact with the OnTime Shop rewards, allowing players to pick their own rewards by spending Points or 'coins'.

OnSign and OnTime version compatibility

  • OnTime v3.8.1 or earlier will work with OnSign v1.0.0
  • OnTime v3.8.2 - v3.9.0 will work with OnSign v1.1.0
  • OnTime v3.9.1 - v3.10.3 will work with OnSign v1.2.0
  • OnTime v3.11.0 or later will work with OnSign v1.3.0

Automated Update Check

OnTime performs an automated check to see if there is a new version of the plugin available for download. It will NOT download new versions, but simply notify the server administrator that one exists via console messages. By default, this function is enabled, but can be disabled by setting "updateCheckEnable" in the OnTime/config.yml to 'false'.

    So where there any fix to our issue?

    I think I've noticed that it resets the days when it reboots.

  • Avatar of PatrickThagaard PatrickThagaard Dec 11, 2014 at 10:29 UTC - 0 likes

    Is it me, or does the ontime timers reset on server reboot?

    We're giving players economy-related rewards for the first hour played each day - but after a server reboot, the 1hour reward can be re-obtained.

    can this plugin run custom commands for rewards like "/enjin addpoints johndoe 100"

  • Avatar of ArmorofGlory ArmorofGlory Dec 06, 2014 at 02:28 UTC - 0 likes

    Hello, OnTime runs on my server, tracking player playtime and staff playtime. All players have the permission to track their time. For the most part it works, however, sometimes it doesn't and I've had multiple reports of it 'glitching' the recorded time.

    I track a lot of data. My 'ontime_players' consists of over 14,000+ rows. There's a total of 8 servers linked to the same mySQL database (oetime_global) syncing playtime across the whole network to the player record.

    Staff members have issued that sometimes it does not record properly. For instance they may play 3 hours, and it only records a selected 30 minutes of playtime. Any idea to why this may be?

    Also a suggestion I have for this project, is an ONTIME web interface to view and share all the data.

    @Edge209: Go

    Oh I figured it out, can't remember what I did exactly. I think I just had to restart the server and make sure everything was set to MYSQL database. But thanks for the help though.

    I do have a request though: Please fix the message for negative loyalty points, "it says user has earned -X loyalty point." Could you possibly change it or let us change it to "User has lost X loyalty points" ? Change the color to red instead of green lol it looks like a good thing when you earn -1 point. haha

    And I have a question: I tried creating a shop that gives players permission to fly for 24 hours for 50 loyalty points but everytime I try to test it I get "you are not eligible to make that purchase" what does that mean?

    Please share your full config.yml. (Send in PM If you don't want it to be public). But, off the top of my head I'll guess that you don't have MYSQL based storage, which is required for point to work.

    My plugins:

    OnTime - Playing time tracking, auto-reward system
    OnSign - Displays player online and playtime status on signs
    afkTermnator - Find/ punish players using machines to avoid AFK detection
