    Oh! I'm very sorry! Maybe put it somewhere in the topic so you can watch it from there? "Just an idea".
    Awesome plugin by the way! Great work!

    Aim the Target (45 degrees in front of the Cannone to each side..)
    As it says..
    It shoots where you look at, in the Moment it will fire..

    New Update v0.2
    Added turnable Flag. if true, the Cannons can be turned by a lever..
    Cannon size for turnable is limited to 2ironblock+dispenser.

    Ok, someone is going to ask eventually so it might as well be me.
    1: permissions support? (for who can use or build one)
    2: multiworld support? (disabling on certain worlds)
    This looks like it would go amazingly with the war plugin :D

    I knew, someone will ask ;-)
    1.) Next Version will have it.
    2.) Permission is Worldbased, so no need for that ;-)

    Will add 3 Perms:
    1.) load
    2.) fire
    3.) turn

    Can you edit how far the tnt goes? Or possibly how much tnt fires?

    I did notice I have to disable Bukkit Piston to use the cannon or it cancels out each other.
    Is it posible to config what blocks to use

    I think you should to do an tutorial

    Currently the lever turns every block in a 7*7*1 area. Would you be able to make the size of this area configurable, so as to make it able to turn an entire room by some lines in the config file? Making an in-game command to define the size of the area for the specific cannon would be even more awesome.

    That's wierd, I use both plugins and it works perfectly.

    Hi Dud
    Of course it would be possible.
    Till now, i store no information to anywhere. if you klick it creates / checks / get / turns ...
    If i would add such a feature, i would have to store this information in a file or where ever.
    Problem is Persistence lacks flexibility in this case.

    I think of differend Kinds of Cannons, which are predefined, so no data needs to be stored..

    What you think about that?

    Sincerely Thomas

    I've tested your plugin and it works fine for me, but I have some suggestions:
    1)Is it possible to shoot TNT from "only" dispenser?; what I mean is just connect it to red stone, and when it is ON, it is shooting TNT. It would be great, cannons in vehicles would be a lot better.
    2)Rotating. I'd want other blocks from turrets to turn (maybe choosing two corners of turret would be ok? something like cuboid).
    3)With movecraft, it can bring a lot of fun!

    Hi lulzz

    I think this would be a new Plugin. I am not even shure, if Dispenser dont shot TNT like other stuff... ?
    See Post #24,#25 , This is the same..
    This has to be hooked onto movecraft somehow, because if you move a block ,it will loose the "connection" to the Cannon Object. Maybe i will look into it, if i feel lucky enought.

    Thnx for the Ideas anyway. Stay tuned. You never know, what i implement next to this "bastard-cannon" ;-)

    Maybe i gonna cross ChickenHunter with this, so you have to shoot the Chickens with the Cannon ;-Q

    Good plug-in tho I can't really figure out where the shot actually lands? I can easily hear the sound of it and if I dont fire the shot after it's ignited the thing explodes, but if I manage to shoot it off I can't see the crater of the explosion or anything.

    Try shoot something that is on higher ground than the cannon.. (you cannot aim Down)
    Try to shoot something that is nearer to you.
    If you have plugins, that removes Creeper or TNT Explosions, you wont get any Craters.

    Hav fun

    I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean. Do you mean predefining different ways to build the cannons, and have the rotation-area vary with each setup? If that's what you mean; I think it could work, although storing info per-cannon, like this:
    or whatever would be alot cooler.

    I meant something between.
    If we define the Turnarea by the Block under the dispenser, and make the Block / Area configurabel, this would be best i guess.?..

    Like if you place a dirt under the dispenser its 7x7x1 if you place a diamondblock under it it would be 12x12x5..

    Possible Config:
        - 4
        - 3
        - 1
    Like that Idea?
