    102DFC7B-A4E4-4DB2-927C-DCE7E4B21A26.jpeg So I Have An Idea:
    Why not add the more player models plugin?

    It allows players to see each other’s player models.

    Like for example:
    Let’s say you’re really tiny and you think it’s really cute, but you also want other players to see, with the plugin, you can do that.

    The only downfall? I’m not sure if it’s up to date or not. The mod is, not sure about the plugin.

    :) ;)

    Not sure what harm it could be if it were to be up to date. Maybe not on minigame servers, but on the hub servers and creative it could be nice

    But what harm would it do on the mini games? If anything it’d make them more interesting.

    In minigames it could give people advantages. For example, say you were in a match of down-grade and someone was a miniature model, they would be a smaller target- therefore making them harder to kill and see.

    Maybe instead we could create our own plugin and kinda mod. This way players do not need to download the mod. yeee am tired sorry if I make no sense.

    That's a bit of extra time and resources required to do that. Plus either way players would need to install the mod

    However the plugin is based around the players, not the server. If players do not have the mod installed, it would not effect their perception at all.


    Also don't quote me on this but I think hitboxes remain the same, but in any case this point still holds up as a smaller target can be ignored easier.

    I said kinda mod in which the server uses the thing and you look smaller if you want to. You don't have to download it.I am still inexperance with all the things yet I believe this is possible.

    Yea it is a big project yet I prefer that over 3rd party stuff.

    Yea I am pretty sure the hit bix remains the same. Maybe it can be customized if you have the mod everyone will be small or big if you want that instead.

    I am pretty sure I am making no sense at the moment.

    It would be possible in a disguise way, but not anyway else without some serious compromises in functionality

    I have a few questions regarding this:
    What would the benefits be?
    Why would this help the server?
    What ranks would have access to this?

    There is just benefits of fun. It helps by bringing enjoyment to players.

    Nothing really needs to be useful...

    Everyone should be able to use it to simply have fun. I don't believe ranks should be used since it is a 3rd party thing.

    Time got it on the dot here, the benefit especially comes in for RPs.
    The plugin is a "translator," it allows players with the more player models mod see each other's custom player models. There is little to no commands in it, and there is no downside for anyone who doesn't have the mod inside. For all of these reasons it should remain out of PvP sections of the server.

    This being said, upon inspection of the plugin page, it is currently in 1.10.2 (Plugin also has 1.8 and 1.9 variants). I am not sure it will be compatible with the server.

    Edit: Also upon further inspection, there is a permission node to allow players to show up as other entities. I would not recommend adding this to any rank, as this could end up catastrophic (especially if all users in said rank decide they want to be an ender dragon)

    I forgot to mention that only people WITH the mod installed can see other people’s model changes, also the hits box stays the same

    Add I think to all of those claims
