    Copycat - Image to Block Renderer [1.4.6-R0.4]


    Version 1.0
    Sorry for the inconvenience, but I have moved the home of the plugin to this location to here.


    Version: v1.0

    Description:
    Copycat allows players to render images from a URL into the Minecraft world. Just target a block and type a command. I don't do documentation very well, but /cc help should be enough for you to figure it out. Configuration is XML based and human friendly for manual editing.

    Features:
    • Player defined shortcuts
    • World restriction
    • Administrative enablement/disablement
    • Administrative size clamping (in XML based config)
    • Transparency support
    • Block Profile support
    • Horizontal or vertical image orientation
    Download Here

    Source Code (SVN):
    https://bukkit-modders.googlecode.com/svn

    Having Trouble?
    If you are having trouble getting the plugin to work, you need to post some descriptive information, such a stack trace, what you were doing, command used, etc. Otherwise, you are most likely going to be ignored.

    Changelog:

    Version 0.6
    • Updated to conform with 1.2.3 API
    • Added a couple new blocks
    • Please delete your pluginConfig.xml to get support for the latest blocks
    Version 0.5
    • Performance and memory improvements
    • fixed help
    Version 0.4
    • Finally got horizontal image orientations to work.
    • Added fully parameterized image draw (not documented in help)
    • Removed memory resident config (no more reload necessary after editing .xml)
    • Added the ability to change the trigger command
    Version 0.3
    • Added block profile support in pluginConfig.xml
    • Fixed transparency loss on image scaling for palette based images (png and gif)
    • Added image scaling capabilities /set dimensions <width> <height>
    • Increased default image size and improved reliability in large image handling
    • DELETE your old pluginConfig.xml so that it is regenerated with a new one to support the new features
    Version 0.2
    • Delete your old .jar. I am now using a new filename for releases. CopyCat.jar
    • Fixed server path with spaces bug
    • changed command trigger from /copycat to just /cc
    • provided more helpful help and better argument checking
    • Added operator undo /cc op undo <playername>
    • Added config reload /cc op reloadConfig
    Version 0.1
    • Initial Release
    Usage Info:

    Target a block, which will become the lower left corner of your image. Then type the magic words:
    /cc mario or /cc shortcut copy mario

    Horizontal/Flat image orientation is based on your look angle. Look down enough at your targeted block and the image will be rendered beneath your feet.

    I added support for fully parameterized drawing. Use it at your own risk. I've tested it, but am unsure how it would work if coordinates for unexplored map areas are used, etc. The format for this is:
    • /cc shortcut copy <shortcut> <X> <Y> <Z> <yaw> <pitch>
    • Yaw is a rotation angle 0 < 360 degrees. It will be snapped to the nearest 90 degree angle
    • Pitch is the up/down angle. Use a number > 45 degrees to orient the image flat
    You may also change the command trigger from /cc to something else. To do this follow the below:
    1. Extract the contents of the CopyCat.jar -- Its just a zip file! rename it to .zip
    2. Edit the plugin.yml file
    3. change cc to whatever you like.
    4. Repack the .zip and rename to .jar again with your edited .yml file.
    I've set a reasonable maxImageWidth and maxImageHeight in the default pluginConfig.xml. If you increase it, beware. This will make your server cry for mercy. For example, a 300x300 image means changing 90,000 blocks, which is a pretty heavy operation.

    Not yet, but definitely will add it in the future, along with horizontally oriented images.

    alright thanks! Also for some reason when I resized the image in photoshop to make it smaller the height in game stayed the same but the width went up 10 blocks.

    There's a hard coded value in the config xml to clamp it to 64x64. It is editable by hand with server restart, but this is mainly due to some behavior that other developers have also noticed in the developer forums. Occasionally when trying to obtain a block, the minecraft server will throw up, seemingly at random. This was more likely to occur on larger images, so I decided to clamp it to 64x64 and maintain aspect ratio to minimize occurence.

    Can you post the xml files? I'm getting an error because I don't have these files, and they aren't being auto-generated.

    That shouldn't happen. Can you post the stack trace from your server console? I just deleted my config dir and the xml was generated as expected. For me this is under D:\games\minecraft-server\plugins\CopyCat

    I dont know if this is your issue, but for me, I run windows 7 and could not get minecraft to behave in a Program Files type directory, even when trying to run as administrator.

    Here's my pluginSettings.xml (rename from .txt):

    the latest craftbukkit does this. I've noticed "unknown command" with other plugins as well since the latest craftbukkit update. It is not from this plugin. I know its ugly, but hopefully will be fixed or have a workaround soon.

    It looks like it may be an issue with minecraft server installed in a dir with spaces in it (notice %20 in the path you posted). I'll make a note of it and fix in the next release.

    does this work just for 8 bit stuff?
     
  24. Offline

    Javanator

    No, it has a built-in nearest color matcher. Right now it will first scale the image, match each pixel to the nearest wool color, and then draw. However, if the image is already 8 bit, it would most likely look a lot better once rendered. Also, the color matching is done on the default textures (since it is server-side). If a user has a client with custom textures, then the color matching on the blocks may not be perceived as being optimal. .

    It loaded a wall of white wool in game, but it didn't load the image... and the wall wasn't even as big as it's supposed to be to fit the image anyways. I'm sure the errors should explain it all though.

    Question: Any way to make this print horizontally instead of vertically? I would love to have a picture laid out over a field, viewable from the server's map. Thanks!
