I got permanent speed on my character and it won't go away, I tried

/effect [Username] clear

and milk. I also jumped off a cliff hoping for it to go away.

  • It's set at 100, but whenever I run it kicks me off the server for flying

The server may have the Essentials plugin, which is common throughout all Bukkit/Spigot servers. You or someone else may have done the /speed [0-10] on you. This results in you walking either faster than walking speed speed > 1 and slower than walking speed speed < 1.

If you see the potion effect, it may be either a beacon , plugin, or command block that is initiating speed on you.

Note: You may not see the speed potion effect on you.

  • my friend gave me boots and they had the speed effect set on them, I took the boots off and still have the effect right now. We tried doing /speed 1 & 0 to see if it would change the effect but it didn't.

  • @kim Well, I can't really help you there now, except for finding the command block and disabling it (unless it's a plugin. If it is, disable that) Ask a developer on the server, or the owner of the server. If you are the owner/developer, then I can't help you there. Commented May 8, 2016 at 18:00
  • sorry if this is annoying but what happens if you crouch when moving around? Commented May 10, 2016 at 15:25
  • @HarounMohamed-Fakier You move slower. In 1.9, the height of the player is lower (by about 1/16 of a block (I think) Commented May 11, 2016 at 0:08
  • but would the server still consider your movement as flying? Commented May 11, 2016 at 15:05
