Flags

You can have special flags on commands that can make the commands only execute when certain things happen. For example, if you want to delay the command by 5 seconds, you can use the d=5; flag.


Start command flags#

There is currently only one flag that is compatible with the start commands: the delay flag.

Delay flag#

To use the delay flag, simply add d=<number>; to the beginning of the command, replacing the <number> with the number of seconds to delay the command. For example this: d=5;say hello! will execute the command say hello! 5 seconds after the server finishes loading.


Join command flags#

Join commands can have several flags: delay, permission, first join, and execute as player.

Delay flag#

To use the delay flag, simply add d=<number>; to the beginning of the command, replacing the <number> with the number of seconds to delay the command. For example this: d=5;say hello! will execute the command say hello! 5 seconds after the player joins.

Permission flag#

The permission flag will only execute the command if the player has a certain permission. To use it, just add perm=<permission>; to the beginning of the command, replacing <permission> with the permission node you want to check for. For example, this: perm=join.creative;gamemode creative {PLAYER} will put the player in creative mode when they join if they have the permission join.creative.

First join flag#

The first join flag will only execute a command if this is the player's first time joining. To use it, simply add [fj] to the beginning of the command.

Execute as player flag#

The execute as player flag will make the command execute as the player instead of the console. To use this flag, simple add [p] to the beginning of the command.


Using multiple flags#

If you want to use multiple flags in the player join commands, they must be in a certain order: delay, permission, first join, then execute as player. For example, if you had all the flags on a command it would look like this: d=5;perm=join.hi;[fj][p]say hi!.
