SparkTrail 3 is currently in development. There will be no more feature updates until it is complete from 2.7.1 and onwards. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Author's Note 20/05/13:
The exam period is almost upon me and it is in my best interests that I focus solely on preparation for them. As a result, all of my plugins (including SparkTrail, EchoPet and EnchantMore) will not be receiving any updates until the end of the exam period (01/06/13 - 1 June 2013). This message is global across all of the mentioned projects. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Note that I may not reply to comments and tickets immediately until the end of that period.
The SparkTrail plugin aims to utilise the range of particle effects Craftbukkit has to offer. Fire, ender, smoke and even love hearts are only a small portion of the particle effects SparkTrail has to offer. And with more and more particle effects to come, there's guaranteed to be one that 'tickles your fancy'!
SparkTrail 3.0 is coming near...And is most likely going to be a 'themed' update. Tons of crazy new effects have been added thanks to some awesome new additions to the Minecraft 1.5 Server, providing server owners with the maximum amount of particle effects that they can get. Just under 20 NEW effects will be added to SparkTrail. SparkPlayer, SparkBlock, SparkMob and SparkMenu will merge together and feed off the same configuration values. Not only will it make it easier for me to read the code, but it will also hopefully mean an easier job for your server's CPU.
The Original SparkTrail package, SparkPlayer provides the utilities needed for activating the variety of particle effects for players.
Ever wanted particle effects that don't just appear on players? Apply those awesome particle effects from SparkPlayer onto any block you see! And so you don't have to do it over and over again, effects are saved conveniently in the SparkTrail directory of your plugins folder.
Make those Creepers look even more amazing with SparkTrail particle effects! Maybe adding them to your pet wolves might dazzle people that enter your house? Whatever mob you choose, SparkMob will add the effects for you.
Extending SparkTrail beyond just the visual particle effects of Minecraft, SparkSound provides access to over 150 sound effects. Want to know what these are? Have a look!.
