    Alpha Chest (v1.6.1)
    Gives a use to virtual chests

    This plugin enables to give users a virtual chest, this can come in handy on survival servers and also on creative servers. When you die you will not loose the contents that are in the chest. You can simply open it by typing /chest and you can open other people their chests by typing /chest player!

    This plugin can work with Nijikokun's Permissions system, but it's not needed.

    Features:
    • /chest - Open your virtual chest (requires "ac.chest")
    • /chest [player] - Open someone else's chest (requires "ac.admin")
    • /clearchest - Clears your virtual chest (requires "ac.chest")
    • /clearchest [player] - Clears someone else's chest (requires "ac.admin")
    • /savechests - Saves the contents of the chests (requires "ac.save")
    • /reloadchests - Reloads the seperate configuration file if in-use. (requires "ac.reload")
    Configuration File:

    Only needed if you don't have permissions
    Code:
    admincmds:
        - ac.admin
        - ac.save
        - ac.reload
    admins:
        - Mast3rPlan

    Since everyone has a chest, why would this be usefull?
    I can implement it, I'll put it in the next version!

    Sorry for the late reply man, didn't see your post, my bad.
    I'll include this in the next big update (version 2.0)
    Currently I'm working on a game I'm making myself (called Warspace)
    You can check out the blog over here.
    Anyway, I'd like some more info about this region stuff.
    I can write my own cuboid like system for defining the areas and stuff but you tell me how it should work!
    Also should it be like an extension, maybe AlphaChestRegions or something?
    And also if anyone would like to se a plugin written don't hasitate to contact/pm me!

    Awesome, thanks for fixing that :D May I ask, though, where they were saving? (Threw some stuff in my temp chest, want to know if it's possible to add it w/different filename and access it)

    No problem!
    They we're saving in the root.
    You can just go like /chest namehere and it would be a chest for namehere but you could use that method to make multiple chests for yourself.
    I think It's unlikely that someone registers as namehere just to steal the contents of that chest!

    Updated it!

    The locations should work now, let me know if you find any bugs.

    Is there a possibility to save to file the chests when people close them instead of the plugin unload?
    Sometimes the server crash and the chests aren't saved.

    Thank you I want to make chests for projects i figure out if you type /chest {anything] it will make a new chest even if theres no one with that name. So I don't feel like telling everyone the names of these chests

    Great plugin! I want to run it on my SMP server but I feel having a large chest accessible from anywhere might trivialize escaping from monsters. Is there any way to add a setting so that I can limit the size to only a few slots? I'd like to make players think carefully about what items they want to protect!

    I could change it to a small chest but only a few slots... I'm not sure I'll have a look at it!

    Can anyone with Permissions help me out. I've tried everything to make it work and it keeps giving me the in game "You're not allowed to use this command." Any info would be appreciated!

    You need ac.chest

    Yeah, tried that. But I am a total n00b at this Permissions stuff. I think I may just be doing it wrong. >_< Which is why anyone already using permissions helping me out would be great, like a little step by step thing if possible. Thanks in advance for putting up with my ass. ^_^

    Wondering if /savechests is required to perform before a server restart? If the server restarts and savechests isn't used will that delete the contents of all virtual chests?

    I usually do it. I know it will be lost when the server freezes totally (its those times when player coords arent saved but blocks are saved)...

    This works for anything below 600 build... after that it stops working and gives error messeges a lot. Since this person is not updating this plugin anymore we are going to have to wait for someone else to update it/take over.

    I've tried before but I had problems getting the development setup working, I might retry next week once I'm done with my current project.

    There's a missing feature that I want, and that is to automatically save the chests to file. Right now if the server crashes the chests modifications are lost.

    Is this getting updated?
    I know this addon is pretty old and all, and it didnt always work corretly for 550+ but I really like/need it. Currently on the 600+ (I think its 605 what I have now?).

    Thanks anyway

    If I use /chest and some else uses /chest, will that take them to my chest or will it create a chest for them?

    Reterg

    They get their own chest. :)

    Ain't working for me, it sometimes gives errors, but when it doesnt give errors sometimes the chests just dont show up for my players and it never auto-saves anyway, always have to save manually, I hate that, thats why I'm asking for an update/fix of this addon...

    It appears the developer is MIA. It would be awesome if someone could pick this up :)

    Is there anyway to auto savechests without type /savechests before a server restart?
    This can be very useful...

    Heyho, AlphaChest 1.6.1 is broken with the latest Minecraft 1.5 builds (tested with 709):
    Code:
    java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: net.minecraft.server.InventoryLargeChest.a(ILnet/minecraft/server/ItemStack;)V
        at com.mast3rplan.alphachest.acChestManager.load(acChestManager.java:80)
        at com.mast3rplan.alphachest.acPlugin.onEnable(acPlugin.java:64)

    As I have the same problem, I might look into it next week, if Mast3rPlan didn't show up until then...

    I did a similar plugin : VirtualChest with more feature like " you can have more than 1 chest, auto-save every X min (just have to change the value in the config file), work with mcMMO (a chest per party can be buy), etc ..."

    I can do a save converter to convert AlphaChest saves to my save system but like a said to @NEO, I need some save files to test before doing anything.

    If one of you can send me his plugin folder plugins/AlphaChest/chests, I'll release a converter.
