    Would it be possible to make the explosion of the cannons TNT a little weaker, maybe add an explosion radius to the config? I just find it strange that a single shot can destroy a wall of diamond blocks that is 4 in width.
    EDIT: Also I don't see the TNT being shot but I see and hear the aftermath... any suggestions why this happens?

    I guess you are using a 1.5 Version.
    I have the same problems there too. I still try to find a Workaround for this.

    Also set the speed to something less, may improve the feeling of the Cannon.

    Also i tried alot to mod the Damage of it, but with no luck so far.. I keep on try to get that in place.

    BlastControl would work for AimCannon also. You should be able to crontol the Blast size with this too.
    Because i just Spawn TNT and Throw it.

    But I don't remember TNT being able to massacre and entire wall of diamond blocks...
    And I'd rather be able to have different power between TNT and a cannon shot. I hope it's not too much trouble :)

    That happens to me sometimes as well. What I have to do is destroy the cannon including the blocks with the button and lever, then drop all my gunpowder and tnt before re-building the cannon and picking up the gunpowder and tnt again. However, this doesn't work all the time and may have to be repeated to work.

    TNT is enabled on your server? -> BlastControl
    Try shot at a Wall next to you.
    If you klick once, does it explode the Cannon?

    You have some Errors in the Logs?

    I haven't tried this yet... but would it be possible to have the cannon set to trigger on redstone event other than the button press? i.e. could I set it on a remote trigger with a repeater so that the blast could be armed and fired with a single click.

    i like the cannon and the instructions but the demo video does not help to understand it :9

    Can we get a tutorial or something on this?

    Look, it's really simple. Here's a view from the top:


    Iron ingots = Iron blocks
    Cobblestone = Any blocks that can have buttons and levers on it. (Note that with block changing plugins this can also be glass, chest, furnace and more...)
    Furnace = Dispenser
    The lever is optional and is only used to turn the cannon around. The button is required for shooting. These can be placed anywhere (except under it and for buttons on top) on the block marked as cobble in this tut.
    Read the OP for instructions on how the cannon works.
    And please don't place one in your house for testing and complain about how it ruined you house, test in a place that is not important on your server.

    Clicked 2 Times ?
    First time it just Ignites
    Second time it Fires..

    You mean that??

    I press 2 times, you may need to explain whether the aim itself, or dynamite which willfly just shoots straight?

    Gravity still affects the TNT, the speed of the shot is configurable and you need to aim a little higher at longer distances. From the looks of the source code I believe an 18° angle up is the max. You can aim a maximum of 45° angle to either side but the lever rotates the cannon 90° (clockwise ; a view from the top). You cannot aim down.

    It fires from the iron, and as stated above you need to click the button to ignite the TNT and once again to fire it.

    Interesting, it loaded and ignited properly in the previous version, but they were in visible/no explosion... now when i press the button, it just spams the chat telling me its ignited... won't let it fire. b734

    [EDIT]: it's only b734 apparently...
    733 seems to be okay.
    Though i wish there were a way to make it aim lower... it defeats the purpose of hitting things/people if you can only shoot over them :p
