Tobi Motd


Tobi Motd is a simple Motd plugin (Like the one in the server.propeties but this one
comes up after you are logged on)
To change the motd open the config.yml file in the Tobi Motd
directory. To use the motd codes you simply add them in the line. Example:
MOTD : 'Welcome %NAME%, The time is now %TIME%'
would if i logged in when the world time (not real time) was 17.15 become
Welcome rosaage, The time is now 17:15

The New codes won't work in console!

Small fixes

Newest Version: 2.9!

/motd - to show the motd
/setmotd - to set the motd ingame
/tm - to reload the config (after manual update of config.yml)
/tm help - Help menu
/tm timer - edit timer settings.. read /tm help for more info
/TobiGUI - Open TobiGUI (Buildt in config editor for TobiMotd)

The Timer:
I'm not sure if everyone knows about it but there is a timer in the plugin.
The timer will when it has counted down show a message to everyone.
You will not see the countdown.
Some info about the config:

  • The Timer Message is the message that will display when the timer has counted down
    (If you have more then one the plugin will choose one at random.)
  • Timer Minuets, Seconds and ticks. These set how long it will be between each message.
    (20 Ticks is one second) And Will be added together so if the Timer Seconds is on 60, and
    Timer Minutes is one 1 the message will display every 2 minutes.
  • Output to console is very easy to understand, It's basically if the message should be broadcast to the console or not.
  • And of course to use this Timer Enabled has to be true, if not the timer won't even run.

Permissions (SuperPermissions) - If you are OP you don't need permissions
tobimotd.reload - needed to reload Tobi Motd
tobimotd.set - Needed to set the Motd ingame

    TobiMotd testrun
    Pictures :) All the commands listed in this picture are added and working.
    One important thing to note is that "/tm" will now be moved to "/tm reload"
    Ignore above, I'll add both so running /tm without arguments is the same as running /tm reload

    Yup :) %PAMOUNT% was added in v2.7 It's pretty easy to upgrade. If you don't know how, It's just deleting the TobiMotd.jar file and downloading the new one, do not delete the folder unless you want to reset the config to default values.

    @Smeesh111: Go When you start the server it will say: "[TobiMotd] Loading TobiMotd v2.7" so if you have the newest you should get the same message with v2.7 in it.

    Tried now with the latest dev build and tobimotd 2.7, Everything works craftbukkit-1.7.10-R0.1-20140817.180155-16 I'm not sure what's wrong, are you sure you have tobimotd 2.7?

    @Smeesh111: Go

    Tobimotd version 2.7 and I think any version of bukkit should work, I'll test on my computer with 1.7.9 and the 2.7 tobimotd from here.

    Are you using the correct version? What bukkit version are you running?
