Gloss Holograms always face you by pivoting to your direction
Gloss Holograms are 100% packets. They do not exist on the server, meaning no other plugins can kill them, nor does the server tick any armor stands
Gloss Holograms can animate up to 60 times per second
Holograms are fairly easy to work with. The base command is /hologram or /holo
Holograms can easily be created with the following:
You can easily move holograms to position them where you want. Simply look at a hologram and use the following command
You can then look and move around (the hologram will track your cursor). You can also move the hologram in and out via scrolling with your mouse wheel.
Once you have a spot, simply left click or press F (if you are on 1.9+) to place the hologram
You can easily find and manage holograms via GUI. Simply use:
The descriptions for each node in the gui informs you about the world the hologram is located in and a preview of the hologram's text if you cant remember which one it was.
There are three ways to edit a hologram, and certain ways may be better suited for your situation than others.
Editing via book has the best of both worlds when it comes to ease of use and power. However it does have certain limitations such as rewriting a word in a line. Simply look at a hologram and use:
Then open the book to edit it. Each page is a new line in the hologram
If you need to make small changes that would be annoying via book editing (since you cannot edit written lines without deleting the entire line first), editing line by line may be easier.
Another option is by editing the hologram descriptor in Gloss's data folder located at Gloss/holograms/<name>.json. From here, any changes you make are magically hotloaded directly into the hologram (you dont need to reload after editing the hologram file).
