FPSHelper - Toggle Sand, TNT, Pistons, Mobs, Spawners & More! NOW WITH 1.13+ SUPPORT!

Lets players with low end computers reduce FPS lag on your server. [Supports Crackshot]

FPSHelper is a small plugin which allows users with less powerful computers toggle the visibility of certain things which can massively impact their FPS while using large cannons or spending time in large factions bases. It can also make crackshot servers much more playable for players with lowend computers. It utilises ProtocolLib to prevent the server from sending certain packets to clients who have opted out of receiving them, and will not impact server performance, or affect the functioning of cannons on your server.

FPSHelper currently offers the ability to toggle the visibility of the following:
  • Sand Entities
  • TNT Entities
  • Common Farm Drops (Configurable)
  • Piston Animations
  • Mobs
  • Spawner Blocks
  • Chests
  • Hoppers
  • Particles
Any feature you do not want to use can be disabled in the config.

In addition to player toggles, FPSHelper also allows you to set worldguard regions in which players will be invisible. This allows you hide players in spawn, solving FPS issues at SOTW when mass amounts of players are in the same area.

All messages and GUI items are fully configurable. You also have the option of disabling the in built GUI and using your own DeluxeMenus (or other menu plugin) GUI.

PlaceholderAPI is supported, and placeholders are available for all of the toggles.

All database calls are asynchronous.

If anyone has any suggestions for things that could be added to this list, I am willing to add them.

Here is a video demonstration of a few of the plugins features:

Here is a comparison video of firing a 255 OneShot w/ Reusable Cobwebs with and without FPSHelper:

(Please note, I only have my gaming laptop to record with, results would be much more noticeable with a low end PC)

Permission for use is "fpshelper.use"

Command to bring up the GUI is /toggle or /fps
You can also toggle individual entities with /toggle [type] (eg; /toggle sand)

Placeholders are available for use using "%fpshelper_toggle_NAME%". For example, if you want to display whether the user has the "sand" toggle enabled, you would use "%fpshelper_toggle_sand%". For MVdW placeholders (featherboard, etc) use {fpshelpder_toggle_NAME}.

If you wish to disable the GUI and use your own deluxemenus GUI, simply set "gui -> enabled" to false in the config, and put your deluxemenus open command in the "menuCommand" section. For example, if you have a menu called "fpshelper" set up with DeluxeMenus, enter "dm open fpshelper %player%". This command will be run any time a player tries to open the gui, instead of displaying the in built one. To enable players to toggle the features with DeluxeMenus, simply have your icons run the command "/toggle [featurename]" for the player.

The Dev is Really Friendly.
Great plugin with fast and amazing support!
Suggestion: Add support for signs + enchantment tables.
Bad thing is you enable so everyone has one option from gui.
Not sure what you mean? Feel free to contact on discord if you have an issue.
I like everything about the plugin, but it would make more sense if it actually loaded. xD
Contacting me with an error log would be a better way to go about reporting an issue. 9 times out of 10 it's something as simple as a missing dependency.
Very useful plugin. If you own a faction server it's a great plugin to have, it reduces player lag from cannons etc.
Great plugin and by far the best available one, I bought this several months ago and didn't realise how updated it was until now, Would recommend to anyone who runs a factions/skyblock server
Flawless and amazing plugin. Recommend this to everyone
Amazing plugin! Works like it says and massive impact on my players FPS. 100% would buy again! Great dev too. Replies quickly and is EXTREMELY helpful. 11/10
Incredible plugin, without words.
The idea is honestly amazing I was having a tough time deciding if I should buy this or your freecam plugin haha, after a cool 20minutes I chose this. You should make a support discord just in case something comes up it'd be much more convenient than mcmarket lol
Thanks for the review :) I already have a support discord: http://discord.gg/spbSEdX
