    LiveSigns is a plugin to display texts in signs or as floating text from a number of sources and can change automatically as the sources change.

    Currently available sources:

    • configuration file
    • text file
    • web url
    • RSS feed
    • Twitter feed
    • php scripts
    • MinecraftQuery
    Sample configuration files are provided to get you started. Basic usage is that you create a LiveSign source, and assign it an id. Then in the game you place a sign with that id, and it will start displaying it.

    Video Tutorial:

    Sign Format:

    • [livesign]
    • id
    • line:step
    • options
    The entry line:step is optional and is used to have multi-sign messages.

    Also options can be omitted, but can be one of the following:

    • raw or none : Will not do any wrapping of long lines.
    • word : Will wrap long lines at word boundaries. (default)
    • char or chr: Will wrap long lines.
    If omitted, long lines will be wrapped at word boundaries.

    You can create floating text signs. To do this use:

    • /fs add [x,y,z[:world]|player] <idtxt>

    • x,y,z - are position coordinates
    • world - is the target world
    • player - is a player where to spawn the text
    • idtxt - is the configured LiveSign to span.

    • /fs add 128,-2,128 basic1
      • creates FloatingText for LiveSign basic1 2 blocks above ground
    • /fs add 128,100,128:world basic2
      • creates FloatingText for LiveSign basic1 in world, at that position
    • /fs add myname file
      • creates FloatingText at the position of player.

    This video shows a sign showing a fortune cookie. This is a website that shows a random cookie everytime. The command being used expires the web cache so it is retrieved again. And magically, the sign changes.

    This video shows a FloatingSign with some scores. Kill a player, and the scores update automatically.

    This is how you create that Floating Sign:

    This only works with the default configuration. The default configuration has a text source called php that uses tops.php to generate the Top scores.
    Plugin Access:
    • Internet Services

    Awesome plug-in however you should add some conveniences for removing floating signs so that we don't have to type in the coordinates

      That is not possible (since there is no way to capture command output through the API).
      On the other hand, you could use PHP to do something similar.
