Inactive [FUN/MECH] Pitfall v0.6 - Make pressure and redstone triggered traps! [766]

Discussion in 'Inactive/Unsupported Plugins' started by petrifiednightmares, Apr 23, 2011.

  1. Pitfall - Make clay (configurable) become a trapdoor
    Version: v0.6

    A configurable plugin that allows certain blocks to act as pressure traps. Once a player steps on them, the blocks disappear temporarily causing the victim to tumble into the pit you dug below.

    • Allows the user to create traps with clay (configurable). Building a layer of clay, and then a layer of any material above it will cause it to become a trap. Whenever a player steps on the layer above the clay, both layers will temporarily disappear, plunging the victim into the depths of the abyss you dug below. After a second, the two layers will reappear, waiting to claim another hapless soul.
    • Configuration of what block to be used instead of clay.
    • Allows setting up a list of blacklist blocks. These are blocks that will not disappear even if placed above the clay block. Format: [3,24,33,2]
    • Allows the user to create redstone triggered traps with brick (configurable). Once a brick block receives a redstone current from either above or below, it (along with all adjacent block bricks) will disappear for a few seconds. Pictures:

    Constructing the trap:

    Filling up the top layer with same block as surroundings:


    The completed trap is indistinguishable from normal land:




    The trap closes back up above me:


    Version 0.6
    • Configurable trap delays
    Version 0.5
    • Sign's texts will be restored.
    • Will print an error message if any blocks are unable to be restored.
    • Jumping over the clay will no longer trigger trap.
    • Trap will only be triggered if standing on solid block above the clay.
    Version 0.4b
    • Fixed a null pointer exception error when first using the plugin.
    Version 0.4a
    • Minor change to how the plugin gets the version number.
    Version 0.4
    • Added configurable redstone triggered blocks
    Version 0.3
    • Fixed a stupid bug where the plugin will not work if you don't have a blacklist enabled.
    Version 0.2
    • Changed name to Pitfall
    • Added a config file that allows you to specify what block to use as the trap block
    • Config file also allows you to define blacklist blocks to be placed above the trap block
    Version 0.1
    • Added the plugin

    Thanks to Avous for features suggestions. :)

    • Add support for mobs
    • Add support for changing what block to use (instead of clay)
    • Redstone triggered traps
    • Keep special data of certain entities. (Texts for signs, items in chests, etc) if they disappear as a result of trap. (Configurable as option)
    • Permissions support

  4. yeah this is a really strange and somewhat rare bug that I have been trying to tackle. For some reason the clay block was unreferenced... I'll let you know if I figure out a fix.
  5. Is there plans for making monsters fall in the traps too?

    Can you make it so that you can set the delay time in the yaml file? It disappears a bit too quickly.
  7. Yes.


    These changes would be coming out next week hopefully

    Sounds good.

    A question would this work with mobs like if they went over the ground and it collapses on them?

    This Plugin is amazing! Great idea :) I had an idea for the next update :) maybe (if there is a way :) ) you could set it up to where Redstone can disable the trap. It would be a good way to make a trap door for griefers or people trying to get into your house. Just thought of that and thought i might share. (sry if you can already do that :p Just got the plugin and messing with it Thanks bye :)

    Did a reload, got this. Doesn't seem to happen every time.

    2011-05-11 01:13:29 [SEVERE] Nag author: 'petrifiednightmares' of 'Pitfall' about the following: This plugin is not properly shutting down its async tasks when it is being reloaded. This may cause conflicts with the newly loaded version of the plugin

    Ok, i had a epic idea, at the end of a hard dungeon you stare down a hallway to see a cake and a sighn. As soon as you come into veiw of the sighn it will say the cake is a lie...
  13. Updated, to allow configurable delays.

    I never experienced this error, it worked great in my video did it not

  18. Are you trying on the latest version? All threadcalls are changed to sync now, which should eliminate this problem.

    I'v got 2 suggestions for you.
    1. Add it so you can use it as a wall (Same Concept, Clay Behind) But in a wall form and opens when the players infront?
    2. Detects Items.

    i have an error code... happens when someone stands on a redstone plate too long and the blocks are trying to come back or if someone is standing on the edge of a pit when they are trying to return to the game. Do you know a fix for this?

    I really like this plugin! Perfect for creating nice variety in user-created dungeons.

    Is it possible to get it with multiworld support? :)

    Well After Stuffing Around With This Great Plugin For A While... I Discovered A Ridiculously Cool Glitch ( Or Whatever You Want To Call It )
    I Went Into The Config File And Changed The Redstone Activated Trap To Stone Instead Of Bricks.
    And I Then Went Into My Cave And Placed The Redstone Into A Hole ( 1x1 ) In The Wall Then Set Up A Lever About 2 or 3 Blocks Away.
    Heres The Cool Bit.
    When I Pushed The Lever On And Off, It Made A Tunnel.
    Not Just Any Tunnel.
    A Freakin Huge Tunnel.
    A Tunnel After 30 Mins Of Playing I Am Yet To Reach The End Of ( If There Is An End ).
    The Tunnels Size Varies From 2 High And 1 Wide, To About 10 Wide And 3 High.
    Just Thought Id Let You Know.
    Ive Done This 3 Times And Its Made My Server SOOOOOO Laggy.
    So I Dont Recommend It On A World That You Like :p

    @petrifiednightmares I know the plugin seems inactive - but if you update is there a chance it can be done to use the new trapdoor block (to simply open them, not make them disappear)? If not I will do it myself :cool:
