Default configuration

# Should freezing persist between relogs?
freeze-persist: true
# Should someone glow when they are frozen?
freeze-glow:  true
# Should someone be force-dismounted when frozen?
freeze-dismount: true
# Should someone be force-set to fly when frozen? This will prevent them from having weird glitches with their client
# Constantly trying to force them down and the server constantly re-setting them, however I have not tested this extensively
# With people who know how to abuse glitches. As such it is false by default
freeze-flight: false
# Should the user be invulnerable while they're frozen? (prevents issues like drowning if frozen while underwater)
freeze-invulnerability: true
# Chat behavior
# 0 = Chat as normal, no change
# 1 = Shadow mute, they don't see a change in their chat, however only staff can see their messages
# 2 = Full mute. They cannot send messages and get an error when they attempt to
chat-behavior: 2
# Which things should be prevented when someone is frozen?
prevent-movement: true
prevent-interact: true
prevent-xp-pickup: true
prevent-item-pickup: true
prevent-item-drop: true
prevent-item-use: true

  # !! NOTE !! If you do not have the minecraft commands blocked by permissions, it is strongly advised
  # Not to remove these from the whitelist due to chat signatures - if these commands are cancelled,
  # The player will be kicked for a missing public key.
