Holographic Displays


Ever wanted to create floating items and name tags, but without entities below? This plugin allows you to create custom holographic displays. You can edit them line by line, providing an easy management system. You can load a hologram from a text file, or even from an image. There is plenty of commands to edit them, to add, remove or change lines. The holograms are loaded dynamically and efficiently (Read the description for more) .................................

Quote from filoghost:

Different major client versions on the same server are not supported. For example, holograms are NOT guaranteed to work if you let 1.8 and 1.9 clients join the server. Please don't ask to add support for these protocol hacks.


  • Create floating text lines!
  • Floating icons!
  • Fast and easy to use.
  • Simple API for developers.
  • Transform images into holograms with a single command.
  • You can create your own animations!
  • Includes the animated rainbow color &u!
  • Supports any UTF-8 symbol.
  • Can displays the amount of players online in a BungeeCord server (supports RedisBungee)
  • Supports Bukkit/Spigot 1.6.4, 1.7.x, 1.8.x, 1.9, MCPC+/Cauldron 1.6.4 and 1.7.

Minecraft limitations

  • Holograms will always rotate to follow the player's view.
  • You cannot change the text size. You can make it bold and uppercase to make it look bigger.



Converting from other plugins
If you're using the plugin Holograms you can use this converter to import the database (credits to saxon12).

This plugin uses Metrics-Lite, to track anonymous data about servers using this plugin. It will help the future developement, and has no impact on your server's performance. If you really want to disable it, go to the folder /plugins/PluginMetrics and set opt-out: true.

By default, you will see update notifications when loading the server and when you join it, if you have the permission "holograms.admin". You can disable the update checking at startup by setting update-notification: false in config.yml.

    I made a new world with Creative, placed holograms there but after a server restart the holograms disappear. The holograms in the normal Survival world stay. /hd reload brings them back, but how can I solve this matter so the holograms stay as usual after a restart?

    I'm not sure if it's intending but when i was testing out the icon feature, putting a block icon in the HD, it will show up for a split second before it disappears. If i do it on a hd with nothing else there, it'll show nothing but the HD itself is still there as I delete it afterwards.

    /hd setline test 1 ICON:diamond

    When I do the above command, it just shows for a second before disappearing.
