Creating a hologram

  1. /hd create test (test is the name of this hologram, a line will be displayed by default).
  2. /hd addline test Hello World (The hologram will now display the default line and Hello World).
  3. /hd removeline test 1 (1 is the line number, it removes the default line).

You should now see this hologram:

You can also use /hd create test Hello World to achieve the same result.

Moving a hologram

To move a hologram to your feet position, execute /hd movehere <hologram>, for example /hd movehere test.

Deleting a hologram

If you want to delete a hologram, execute /hd delete <hologram>, for example /hd delete test.

Floating items

You can use items instead of text inside holograms, use ICON: <material>:<data> instead of the normal text when changing/adding a line. Click here for a list of valid materials in the latest Minecraft version (the format is case insensitive and you can omit underscores).

Example for red wool: /hd create test ICON: wool:14

Displaying images

  1. Upload an image into the folder /plugins/HolographicDisplays/, for example the Bukkit logo.
  2. /hd create test (test is the name of this hologram)
  3. /hd readimage test bukkit.png 12 (bukkit.png is the name of the image in the plugin's folder, 12 is the width of the hologram. The symbols used to render the image are taken from your configuration).
