    Runecraft - The magic mod for Bukkit!
    Version: 2.12

    This is the Runecraft mod ported to the CraftBukkit server.

    Runecraft adds magic spells to the game which are triggered by block patterns called runes.
    It let's you create teleporter and waypoint runes for instant travelling, build hidden doors into mountain walls or enchant your tools. And more.

    • Build runes (block patterns) for spell casting
    • Teleportation runes
    • Faster digging with Power Pick and Power Drill
    • Hidden doors and traps using Phase Block and Lock Block runes
    • Build an easy spleef arena with Spleef Blocks
    • Shoot torches with Bow of Light rune
    • Works with multiple worlds
    • Support for Bukkit's permission system
    • Much more!


    The config file is named "disabled-runes.txt" and lies in the root bukkit folder (alongside etc.).
    The file is generated if you load the plugin. Each line contains an option which is either the name of a blacklisted rune, the name of a player not allowed to use runes, or a specific command. Some commands are:
    • whitelist - turns the rune blacklist into a whitelist
    • enable multiworld travel - allows teleportation using runes between different worlds
    • initiation - players cannot use runes until they activate a special rune containing bedrock
    More options are listed in the Official forum thread in the section Runecraft Administration.

    Bukkit's Permissions:
    Runecraft supports Bukkit's permission system since version 2.8.2. Use a permissions plugin such as PermissionsBukkit, bPermissions or PermissionsEx.
    Runecraft currently has the following permission nodes:
    runecraft.*                        - gives .teleport and .runes
    runecraft.teleport                 - must be true to allow any teleportation runes
    runecraft.runes                    - gives permission for all runes
    runecraft.runes.powerpick          - gives both .activate and .use
    runecraft.runes.powerpick.activate - gives permission to bind Power Pick rune
    runecraft.runes.powerpick.use      - gives permission to use a rune-enchanted tool
    (Replace 'powerpick' with the name of any other rune)
    'runecraft.teleport' must be given to allow any form of Runecraft teleportation (Teleporter, Personal Teleporter and Recall runes).

    All users have 'runecraft.*' by default. If your permissions plugin doesn't have negative permissions, you have to overwrite the default to disable all runes, and then enable the runes you want with your permissions plugin. To disable all Runecraft permissions by default, open the file plugins/Runecraft/config.yml and change permissions.teleport and permissions.runes to false:
      teleport: false
      runes: false
    Old permissions system (removed in recent versions):
    Show Spoiler

    You can use AttributeProviders to connect the Permissions plugin with Runecraft. You can also connect any other Permissions-like plugin with Runecraft, if there is an AttributeProvider for it.
    Runecraft currently has the following permission nodes:
    • 'runecraft.teleport' - allows or blocks any teleportation (Teleporter, Personal Teleporter and Recall runes)
    • 'runecraft.rune.<name of rune>' - allows use of that rune. 'runecraft.rune.*' allows all runes.
      For example: 'runecraft.rune.phantomtorch', 'runecraft.rune.personalteleporter'.

    There's always a solution! And there are always missing informations!

    I can only show you the whole server log. No idea which line belongs to runecraft and which not /-:
    Got latest bukkit version and runecraft version and no errors are shown ingame.
    No other plugins are running.

    After line 11, i reloaded the server (/reload) and the teleporter doesn't work anymore. (stopping server first and starting then triggers the same problem)

    Wow I haven't been paying much attention to this. I was waiting for the permissions support but now has em :D Great!

    Runecraft stores waypoints and teleporters in "magic.dat" of the main world folder. It can't access those files on your server. Check the permissions (Linux ones, not Bukkit! ;-) ) of those files and make them writeable again.

    Ahh, it works now! Thanks a lot!
  7. It seems that the "runecraft.*" permissions are all default: true, correct? Is there any chance to get this fixed/changed, or maybe with a command in the disabled-runes file?

    As it seems that giving someone "-runecraft.*" as well as a node for a specific rune, does not work correctly...

    Would be nice to get a command to flip it at least :)
  8. Offline


    The default is true so that people without a permissions plugin can use Runecraft without configuration.
    If your perms plugin doesn't support negative permissions correctly, you can use the file permissions.yml in Bukkit's root folder to change the default:
        default: true
            Runecraft.*: false
  9. Hmm I thought/presumed that you simply detect the present of a Permissions plugin...or has the invention of BukkitPerms made that impossible...sigh.

    The problem is not that negative don't work, but negative seems to override postive. so if your bottom rank has -runecraft.* and a higher rank has runecraft.runes.whatever, the negative node gets preference.

    It's just a mess...everything worked so well before SuperPerms :/

    Hello, sort of new to the plugin and have a simple question for you. I've looked through all the links and can't find
    a detailed explanation of enabling the teleporter toll option. I've uncommented the line for it in the disabled runes.txt and tried to add a block id to the line under that but no toll charge occurs. Any help would be appreciated. This plugin is awesome and going to be a key part of our server.

    I've been testing the plugin on craftbukkit 1337 with only PEX, Admincmd, and Runecraft running.
    I use PEX 1.15 but it doesn't hook into Runecraft, and I don't need it to.
    Just thought that info might help, but I don't believe PEX or Admincmd is not allowing the toll charge.

    Thanks, Skiggitus

    Kinda... since Bukkit handles it all.

    Not if you put the above into permissions.yml and put positive nodes into your permissions plugin. Directly setting a permission should override an inherited setting.

    Uncommenting doesn't work. You need to remove the comment text as well.

    If you enable superperms support in PEX, it should work with Runecraft because both support the superperms system.
    The problem is that PEX doesn't correctly support negative superperms. So you have to set Runecraft.* to false via permissions.yml (see my first answer to Joy). After that, you can use PEX to set the permissions for single runes.

    Thanks for the quick response! Also I really appreciate how straightforward Runecraft is and that it is rooted in the server directory to allow for compatibility with other types of servers.

    Thanks again for all the work, and updates you push out.

    Good update. However I think the powertool rune now is WAY too strong now. Anyway you can set the powerlevel back to how it was? (Which seemed to be just fine) or make it configurable somehow?
  14. Offline


    Before increasing the amount of 'power', the Power Pick was about 1/3 to 1/2 as effective as the old version of it. Should I decrease it back to that level?
  15. Have another issue. The compass rune is such a common structure, that I have it disabled, but often get this spam:

    16:23:30 [INFO] [Runecraft] phizom tried to use a disabled rune: compass
    16:23:31 [INFO] [Runecraft] phizom tried to use a disabled rune: compass
    16:23:31 [INFO] [Runecraft] phizom tried to use a disabled rune: compass
    16:23:31 [INFO] [Runecraft] phizom tried to use a disabled rune: compass
    16:23:31 [INFO] [Runecraft] phizom tried to use a disabled rune: compass

    I think a rune should not show up in the log if it's in the disabled-runes file, or not? Or otherwise a way to entirely disable a rune, because anyone clicking the shape of a compass in any block type gets that "aether blabla" message as well :S

    Perhaps about 50 power more than it was before the update? Kinda meeting in the middle.

    Where is the information on portals stored? Is it possible to back these up? I keep running into an issue when I change default worlds (Don't ask, circumstances called for it) and it tends to wipe all portal and waypoint locations.
  20. Offline


    All data is stored in the file "magic.dat" in the main world's folder. Copy it to your new default world and it should be fine.

    Initial question~ Will you create a Config.yml for runecraft

    Alright so I did some nosing around your .jar. I overlooked the fact that you included sub nodes for permissions (this is partly what I meant). But by config I meant, the ability to create personalized runes much like the config of a plugin like say....stargate. You can create custom gates by simply

    x x
    - -

    x: 49
    -: 323
    The Config set up would resemble more like

    1. x
    3. x
    2. z

    x: 331
    o: 1
    z: teir

    Perhaps you'll need to reconfigure your listener.class but idk this is not my area of expertise (if it was I would've done it myself ^^). Anyway where also can I find a list of your sub nodes??

    Thanks splended work!!

    It appears powerpick rune is not working properly. Apparently it is breaking random quantities of blocks and typically only 3 at a time rather than the 3x3x3.

    Is this something on our end or is this a known issue?

    Thank you
  27. Offline


    Never heard that before. Need more info.

    Maybe. All configuration is handled via "disabled-runes.txt".
    Since Runecraft is hybrid (works in vanilla and Bukkit), I can't use YML easily.

    I don't think there will be customizable rune patterns. The rune parser code is quite complex.

    In the "Bukkit's Permissions" section of the main post.

    The server is running bukkit 1532 for 1.0

    Basically instead of the 3x3x3 super pick we are getting 3 total blocks destroyed when using the rune. Is there maybe a setting that got messed up on our end?
  29. Offline


    There are no settings for Power Pick. What blocks did you dig? Make a screenshot from just before and after the digging. Check if there is an error message in the server log.
  30. Offline


    Do you think you would be able to add permissions so I can restrict the ability to craft individual runes to certain permissions groups. Or is there some way to do this already that I cant see because at the moment anyone could craft any of the runes.

    Does this work with Bukkit 1537 ?
