This plugin has been updated for full release.



What this plugin basically does is puts the server on "emergency mode" It kicks all non-op players out of the server and stops non-op players from joining. The only players that can remain in the server during emergency mode are OPs and the players with permission to be exempt from emergency mode. It allows server admins to do what they have to do without having to take care or worry about the players. It prevents further damage and frustration to be done. Instead of just stopping you're server for awhile to prevent players from entering, you can use this plugin. Please visit our other pages for more details.


Basic usage: Usage subject to change, we'll do our best to update this page


/ed build - Disables building (use /ed off to disable)

/ed full - Put the server on Emergency mode or (if the server was already in emergency mode) put it on normal mode for everybody to join.

/ed help - List commands

/ed off - Turns off both full downtime and partial downtime!

/ed partial - Put the server on partial emergency mode. It stops non-op players from joining the server BUT does not kick the players that are non-op in the server currently.

/ed check -Check if server is in downtime!

/ed ver - Find what version you are running!

/ed kickall Kicks everybody out of the server (including OPs and possibly you too) and stops them from entering. .

/ed reload Allow for persistant downtime during reloading. Can only be used when /ed full is on. (use /ed off to make this false)


Timed commands can only be used for the following commands

  • /ed kickall
  • /ed partial
  • /ed full
  • /ed build

How to actually use timed commands: When you wish to use any of the commands above, first type them out and then add how many seconds the task should be delayed.

Example use: /ed full 30 Full downtime will be enabled in 30 seconds.

    Odd, I cannot recreate the bug on my side. I'll be uploading a new version soon, (nothing has changed with the code that affects you) but I can't seem to find the bug.

    To your second suggestion, that's already been implemented. It's /ed reload which only works with /ed full

    To your third suggestion, I'll work on it for the upcoming version :)

    And I would also like to see a broadcasted message when it is timed to close, so when I do /ed full 60, it says

    [EmergencyDowntime] Server activating Emergency Downtime in 60 seconds!

    and countdown by 10's or somthing. That would be really cool. Thanks!

    @dakoslug: Go

    Sorry, I didnt see that you replied. One of the bugs I've been getting is when I do /ed full or /ed kick, it will kick the players, but from my console it still says they are online. It doesnt do much, but takes a bit of ram and the only way to get it to stop regestering is to restart the server.

    Also, I would like to see if you can implement that if I restart the server in Downtime, it will stay that way when it comes back online until I do /ed off.

    Just a suggestion, is it possible for the plugin to modify the server's MOTD whilst in downtime?

    This would mean people wouldn't try to connect as much when it's under downtime, as they'd know it from looking at the motd.

    @ImTotallyTechy: Go

    I was confused, because there is already a "language file". Bugs?? What bugs! Please tell me!

    @dakoslug: Go

    A language file basically allows a user to change messages that the plugin says. So if the default message is "Server closed for Emergency Downtime", the user can open the file in a text editor and change it to "Sorry, our server is down for emergency purposes". They can also change font and color via this file.

    Anyways, there are a number of bugs this plugin contains, but I really like it! Thanks

    A language file? What do you mean? PM'd for more details.

    Thanks for taking an interest!
