Description

THIS PLUGIN HAS NO USE FOR SERVER-OWNERS

This library is a possibility for developers to out-source their effect-managment. This library comes with a handy collection of customizable effects, but you can easily add your own effects and manage them in the library.

Usage

  1. See documentation for Maven-based instructions.
  2. OR Add the EffectLib.jar to you project and to the plugins in your server.
  3. Create a new EffectManager to handle your effects.
    EffectManager em = new EffectManager(plugin);
    
  4. Create a new Effect and start it.
    Effect effect = new BleedEffect(em); effect.setEntity(target); effect.start();
    
  5. Dispose of the EffectManager after when you are completely done with it.
    em.dispose();
    

Demo

This demo creates a bleed-effect when a player joins. After 15 seconds, the effect runs out and the callback is called, that kills the player and sends them a message.

        };
        // Bleeding takes 15 seconds
        // period * iterations = time of effect
        bleedEffect.iterations = 15 * 20;

Effects Control

All effects can attach to a Location (setLocation) or an Entity (setEntity). Some Effects (like LineEffect) can work with two locations- use setTargetEntity and setTarget to control the "second point".

You can cancel all running effects of an EffectManager by cancel(boolean callback).

Configuration-Driven Effects

There is also a Configuration-driven interface you may use, EffectManager.start.

You may pass in the Effect class as a String, and additional parameters as a ConfigurationSection. This can be a fully-qualified path (for custom externally-defined Effects) or a simple class name for the builtin classes. For example:

summon:
 class: VortexEffect
 iterations: 4
 particle: smoke
 helixes: 16
 circles: 7
 grow: 0.1
 radius: 1

And then to use it, something like this:

ConfigurationSection effectConfig = getConfig().getConfigurationSection("summon");
String clasName = effectConfig.getString("class");
effectManager.start(className, effectConfig, player);

There are several different versions of the start() method as of 3.4, the longest one would look like this:

effectManager.start(className, effectConfig, player.getLocation(), player, null, null, null);

The latter three parameters are optional, the two "target" parameters used only in certain FX. The last line can be used for the TextEffect to have parameterizable text messages- for instance, if you wish to insert the Player's name in a Configuration-drive text message.

  • LoveEffect - The target entity is in love.
  • MusicEffect - Circle of notes appeares above the entity.
  • MusicEffect - Circle of notes appeares at a location.
  • ShieldEffect - Spherical Shield around an entity.
  • SkyRocketEffect - Foces an entity to fly into the sky.

  • Feel free to send me your effects if you have coded up some custom ones of your own!

All effects have the ability to be changed. Let the effect repeat, increase duration or change period of iterations.

Any Effect will work when attached to a static location, or to an Entity. If both are provided, it will attach at the target Location, but move relative to that along with the entity (great for tagging hit locations, or attaching to an Entity's head or other body part specifically!)
