I am trying to make SCP-939 from SCP Secret Laboratory. but I searched everywhere, but I cant find a way to make a glowing effect visible to 1-2 people only.How do I do this?

NOTE: I am on 1.12.2 and have no knowledge of coding, so the bukkit forums thing i found wont work.

  • you would have to use something other than the glowing effect

    the glowing effect is the only thing I know about that lets people see entities through blocks. so what else would I use?

    As far as I know, you can't do this with just vanilla commands. With Bukkit, you can because you have the ability to send the effect packet to only specific players. Feb 10, 2021 at 16:56
  • I do not understand what a "packet" is.As I said I don't know how to code so unless there is a plugin that I have not found then I am still waiting.

Vanilla Minecraft does not have this ability, not even with command blocks.

You can see here some discussion of how to write a plugin to do this (they had similar requirements to you); there's even an apparently-somewhat-maintained (though completely undocumented) library extant that'd help… but apparently no plugin currently exists to do this.

It looks like many have tried, but all have failed, to write the plugin you're looking for.

  • huh guess u get the reputation...

  • @anomanous sorry for the disappointing answer… if I knew MCP/Java better, I'd have contributed something more helpful Feb 13, 2021 at 20:38
