FishMode Plugin

This plugin was made to address a plugin request where the players should breathe in water
and suffocate for lack of oxygen in air, like a fish.


Command Description Permission
/setfish [true/false] [Player Name] Set a direct fish flag to a player fishmode.cmd.setfish
/unsetfish [Player Name] Remove the direct fish flag from a player fishmode.cmd.unsetfish
/reload-fishmode Reload the configs from the filesystem fishmode.cmd.fishmode-reload
/isfish [Player Name] Shows the fish status of a player fishmode.cmd.isfish

Note 1: The player names can have space, you don’t have to put them between quotes, in these commands.

Note 2: All command permissions are automatically granted to OP players.

Note 3: You still look like a player, so find a cool skin to match the theme, or find a disguise plugin.


Aside from the command permissions there are two extra permissions that you can give
to users to override the default settings, create a group of fishes with your permission manager,
or make your staff never fish unless directly set as fish.

These permissions are not granted by default to anybody.

Permission Description Makes the user always fish unless directly set to not be Makes the user never fish, most settings except the direct fish flag, this has priority over
