This plugin allows you to add additional fake players in your server player list, which you see when press "tab"-key in game. Fake players could be added manually or you can use NPC's name to show at player list.

This plugin is using library ProtocoLib to provide a fake information at server list menu. If ProtocolLib is not installed you will not be able to add fake players to your server.


  • Colorize real players name in list. In addition you can define color for name of your server admin group
  • Display fake player names in list.
  • Display NPC's (provided by Citizens plugin) name in list
  • Add/remove fake players
  • Override /list command and show same information as in TAB-list
  • Fake serverlist menu to show fake counters for online players, reserverd slots and motd.

Metrics and update checker

FakePlayersOnline includes two features that use your server internet connection. First one is Metrics, using to collect information about the plugin (versions of plugin, of Java.. etc.) and second is update checker, checks new releases of FakePlayersOnline after plugin startup and every half hour. This feature is using API provided by dev.bukkit.org. If you don't like this features you can easy disable it. To disable update checker you need to set parameter "version-check" to "false" in config.yml. Obtain more information about Metrics and learn how to switch it off, you can read here.
