I have a mod on my game (1.7.10), which allows me to automatically kill animals, mine and farm.

To activate it though, I must type in

/minebot kill or /minebot plant wheat

Can the online server read these commands that I'm inputting?

No.

Minebot commands are intercepted by minebot. The server admin will not see any commands starting with /minebot or /minebuild. It will however see mistyped commands (/minebt).

It is possible to intercept tab completes of the first word, so if you type /min<tab> often the server owner might get suspicious.

In late 1.7 versions and in 1.8, as soon as you typed the first space after /minebot, you can safely use tab complete. It will not be sent to the server.

(PS: I'm the minebot author ;-))

    If " the server owner might get suspicious", then that's not a mod, that's a hack... :p – João Mendes Jan 19 '17 at 11:00
  • Well, the server might forbid botting, which counts as a "hack" in this case. @JoãoMendes – devRicher Jan 19 '17 at 12:10

A server owner can see any command you input from looking at the server console or the server logs.
