I heard that Minecraft 1.5 would have support for setting the name above the head of a Player. Looking at the newest commit I see: Code: + /** + * Sets a custom name on a mob. This name will be used in death messages + * and can be sent to the client as a nameplate over the mob. + * <p> + * Setting the name to null or an empty string will clear it. + * <p> + * This value has no effect on players, they will always use their real + * name. + * @param name name to set + */ + public void setCustomName(String name); So I'm guessing that the dev I heard this from was wrong? Just looking for some clarification from someone who knows for certain.
