    Too bad! Error on 1.7.9 spigot, see http://pastebin.com/YXUEvyR1
    It is not compatible with Citizens, see http://pastebin.com/UWsaCnNC
    (you create NPCs, save them, restart server, and then it stops working!)

    @MychoGaming: Go

    I would have a guess the permissions is effect.bubble or effect.cloud etc

    Can you add support for Citizens NPCs? O.o That would be amazing!

    I absolutely love the plugin! It adds something new to the game, something I've never seen any other plugin do, it's a great perk for donors. However, is it possible to add specific permission nodes for each aura? I want my donors on my server to have access to a specific /particle add, but every time I try, it gives access to all of them, after all, it does say the plugin only has 4 permission nodes, although some people like simple plugins like this one, I want it to be more customizable, allowing server owners to be able to control who has access to what aura, and the ability to limit the amount of entities the aura produces.

    We desperately need a way to change the effects to suit our needs. Changing the offsets, the frequency, and the number of particles would be an amazing addition to this plugin.

    Hope to see it :)

    The players on my server noticed an exploit with the effect explosion.fire where zombies can pick up the fire, causing it to be a collectable item.

    It'd be nice if there were a way to disable certain particles, for instance the ones that make noise. Also, it'd be really handy for server owners to be able to define how many particles show at once. As it is, it's a bit too many particles for my liking.
