What is Anti-Relog?
Anti-Relog is a lightweight and easy-to-use PVP plugin that prevents players from using commands during combat to escape from the opponent. With this plugin, players will not be able to simply warp to safety but will instead be forced to fight to the death. In the case of a player logging off to escape death, they will be killed instantly* before log-off and their items will drop as usual. If NPCs are enabled, an NPC will spawn in place of the combat logger. They will automatically be banned for a preset time to prevent them from logging on immediately. I made this plugin in response to a plugin request.
What Are This Plugin's Features?
This plugin is designed to be as flexible as possible with the server owner in mind. Below are the current list of features:
- Easy to install. Just drag and drop.
- Keeps players fighting and on the alert. No more escaping from battles.
- Players who log off before the battle ends are logged into a text file with time and date.
- Detects cause of player logoff so they are not banned if their client crashes in the midst of battle.
- Customizable messages and settings.
- Functions are togglable. This means that you can turn the settings off whenever you don't need them!
- PermissionsEx support.
- NPCs compatible with Modifyworld.
How to Install
- Download the latest build of Anti-Relog here.
- Download the latest CraftBukkit recommended build.
- Drag Anti-Relog.jar into the CraftBukkit plugins folder and start up the server.
- Configure the config.yml inside the generated Anti-Relog folder to your preferences and save.
- Reload the server.
Alias for /antirelog is /ar.
- /antirelog - Shows the plugin version.
- /antirelog t (or /antirelog time) - Shows the time left before player can use commands.
- /antirelog unban <player> - Unbans the selected player if they were banned through PVP logging.
- antirelog.pvpbypass - Allows user to be exempt from all PVP restrictions. Allows use of commands in PVP and allows logging off without consequence.
- antirelog.unban - Allows user to unban players who were banned by PVP logging.
- antirelog.aggressivenpc - User will spawn a NPC which will fight the attacker in place of the player when the player combat logs.
NPCs are designed to help prevent combat loggers from ruining the fun of PvP by continuing the fight after they log off. Regular NPCs (default ones) do not fight back but instead stay they and get killed. If you really want a challenge, turn the Aggressive Mode on in the config or give players who you want to spawn aggressive NPCs the 'antirelog.aggressivenpc' permission node. NPCs will drop all the player's items when killed and the player will lose all their items upon logging back on. If an aggressive NPC manages to kill the attacker, the combat logger will maintain their inventory and the NPC will despawn.
