Server Pinging

Yes, it is possible to display the MOTD or player count of a server via Item!

Step #1 Tell BossShop to look for Data of a named Server

Simply add this line to your ShopItem:

ServerPinging: <host>:<port>

now BossShop will try to get the MOTD and Player count of the server with the host address <host> and the port <port>.

Step #2 Use the Data in the Lore or Displayname of an Item

Where can I use the MOTD/Player count of a server?

  • In Lore/Name of MenuItems
  • Only works for MenuItems which belong to a ShopItem which is connected to a server

You can use following tags:

  • %players% | Will display the Player count of the named server
  • %motd% | Will display the Motd of the named server


    - type:REDSTONE
    - amount:1
    - name:&4Cool Server
    - lore:&c%players% online

Additional Information

  • The MOTD and player count values are updated real-time, even when players have their mouse hovered on the items
  • You can define the pinging delay in the Config.yml. The delay is defined in ticks (20 Ticks = 1 second).
