VTExtension - Add some features to VariableTriggers!

This plugin requires VariableTriggers


Please Note:

I am not the creator of Variable Triggers nor am I claiming to be. This plugin was created to offer some extra features that can be used with VariableTriggers that were not originally included.

Update: I have taken over active work on Variable Triggers, please view there for any updates related to the plugin. This plugin won't be updated anymore due to my ability to add things directly to the plugin.


  • Date and time stamps (not UNIX time like VT already offers)
  • Obtain player nicknames (display names)
  • Build strings without having to do @IF testing and choose where the string starts
  • Obtain the item name (even if you've named it with an anvil) that you are currently holding
  • Open to suggestions to add more stuff, leave a comment!


So far only one permission as everything else runs as @CMDCON besides itemname, which is @CMDOP.

  • vte.itemname

Update Log

  • (v1.0) Timestamps are in readable, normal time based on server location instead of UNIX
  • (v1.1) Removed duplicate method; updated to 1.6.1
  • (v1.2) Added @CMDOP itemname, which stores the name of the item you're holding in $itemname.current (even with custom names!)
  • (v1.2) Config option edited to enable or disable plugin

    itemname doesn't work for me. All I get from the preset variable is Nope.jpg and then "0" instead of the item name. No error messages are showing up in the console.

    Congratz on handling VT! Hope you add much to it, since... well... lexlaiden didn't answer many tickets in a while...

    Can you make a way to interact with air? T_T
    Like, when you right click air, vt recognize it :s, it should be awesome to do menus and stuff :c

    I mean, that the interact event can be used to interact with blocks and air too :s

    Please!! :D

    @Lyoko_Firelyte: Go

    what do you mean by that? There already is a hook?

    Nevermind, I'm just stupid. Found it and will be using it. Thanks

    Edit: Tried working with it, however its not really working as I hoped it would. After VT set the scoreboard stats for 16 players the scoreboard disappears. I found no way of limiting it to 10/15. This seems to be a known issue...

    @H8llfire: Go

    Have you tried /scoreboard in VT?

    You know what would be great? Scoreboard support! My server is utilizing a Skilllevel system. It would be awesome if I could display some VT Variable Strings on it.

    I can't add more placeholders with an extension plugin, but I could add a chat listener if you want with a quick config.
