AFK Safe Zone

AFK Safe Zone - Now for 1.7.X!

This plugin is simple enough. A Moderator sets up an AFK spawn point, and when people type in /afk they are teleported to that point. You can choose whether or not the players will be able move once they go AFK and many other things in the config file. The only permission this uses is for the /setafkspawn and you must have the permission node "afk.setafkspawn". The commands are below. The plugin is pretty self explanatory.

  • After a set amount of time, or after the player types /afk, the player will be teleported to a designated location, or if no spot is set, the world's spawn
  • Fully compatible with Essentials' afk feature

  • Ability to disable a player from taking damage while afk
  • Ability to restrict a player from dealing damage while afk

    Is there a way to make it so that if someone is in afk and disconnects when they reconnect they're not in afk anymore?

    It says "#allow players to place or revome blocks while afk" in the config section (but not in the actual config.yml).

    It should say remove, not revome.

    @Tstop: Go

    It happen to random players i think, also it doesnt work with certain players, they have the permission: afk.allow

    im using the latest 1.3.5

    I disable /afk command globally because it send errors on console.

    Im using essentials 2.13.1 with auto afk

    Can you provide any other info:

    • Does it only happen to certain players?
    • Is it totally random with who and when it happens?
    • Which version are you using?

    Try using this version:

    It is for 1.7.2 but is compatible for 1.6.4. I fixed the console spam bug in this release.

    Hello all, I have uploaded new releases of the plugin! It doesn't change anything, these builds have just been compiled against newer versions of Craftbukkit. If you would like to see any new features let me know!
