AntiAddict Revisited - Limit some players' playtime on your server

Version: v2.1


If you are an admin who really cares about the players of your server, there might come a day when you recognise that some of them got addicted to the game and really play to much on your server. AntiAddict is a plugin which allows you to limit the time specified players can play on your server. This timelimit will be reset the next day, which then would allow them to play again. (so normally it's daily).

The first developer of this plugin was Phiwa, who wrote most of the code. He read a plugin request by wuppieigor and recognised that there are some server admins who really care about the players on their server and do not only watch the number of slots they manage to fill. (Follow me on Twitter for updates!)

Quote from Phiwa:

Of course you cannot control what the players do on other servers or in single-player, but it is a step into the right direction. In my opinion it is great that those admins care about their members and therefore wrote this plugin to help them with it.

After a long time and finally releasing AntiAddict, a lot of server admins became familiar with it and started to love it. Unfortunately, Phiwa had a busy time and couldn't update his plugin anymore. All were sad. I decided to step in. Staartvin. I'm the new main developer of AntiAddict and I will do my best to make this plugin even better than it was!

    I hope the author can modify the player's game time than after being punished or game harvest halved, do not directly be kicked out of the game

    I'm even willing to make a donation to get this working with 1.7.10.
    Author not answering his PM's...

    Permission PEX doesn't work well. I stopped using it and all of a sudden all these permissions I never knew existed started working.

    Using Group Manager now.

    Seems like the "antiaddict.ignorelimits" permission is not working. I have it listed in the "admin" group in PEX and I'm still being removed from the server.

    Removed the inheritance, unfortunately nothing changed.

    Neither players in the players-group nor those in the spectators-group get put into the apropriate AntiAddict group.

    But thanks for the quick reply^^

    @Atsuraelu: Go

    This probably happens because you have the players group inheriting the default group.

    I've got a little bit of a problem...

    No matter what I do, all players are put into the default group.

    AntiAddict config.yml:

    # AntiAddict v2.1 Config
      LimitAll: false
      ShowWhenAddictJoinsServer: true
      ReputationPointsBan: 4
      NoticeOnVersionUpdate: true
      PermissionsWarningOnStartup: true
      UseMultiWorldSetup: false
      - unusedworld

    AntiAddict groups.yml:

        time limit: 120
        time limit: 60
        time limit: 60
        time limit: 1440

    PermissionEx permissions.yml:

        default: true
        - -modifyworld.*
        - spectate.on
        - spectate.mode
        - antiaddict.groups.Zuschauer
        - default
        - modifyworld.*
        - antiaddict.groups.Spieler
        - -spectate.*

    Can someone please tell me, what I'm doing wrong?

    @nebzero: Go

    It's really easy. You can make seperate groups with each their individual time limit. After you've set all the limits, you can give a player a certain permission to be part of the group. See the comments at the top of the antiaddict config.

    So... How do you set this up? There's no instructions. Please help, thanks!
