    BlastControl - Flexible TNT and Creeper restrictions and modification plug-in
    Version: v1.0.6
    (Optional) Permissions Version: v2.5.x

    Lets face it, TNT is fun. This plug-in is not to take away TNT from Minecraft, but restrict it's use to certain users. This plug-in provides the administrator the ability to restrict TNT use through different permissions. There are currently three levels of TNT usage restrictions that the administrator can apply to their users.

    Permissions:
    Code:
    bc.tnt.allowed - This permission will grant the user the ability to place and activate TNT freely under the indicated blast limit
    bc.tnt.abovelimit.place - Allows the user to place TNT above the specified blast limit
    bc.tnt.abovelimit.activate - Allows the user to activate TNT above the specified blast limit
    bc.tnt.abovelimit.link - Allows the user unrestricted linking of TNT blasts
    bc.tnt.immune - Gives player immunity to damage from TNT blast
    
    How it works:
    The basic idea of this plugin is that when a user activates TNT, the chunk itself is tagged with that users permission level for the next few seconds. So any linked explosions are also covered under that specific permission and the timer is extended. As an example, if the user has the bc.tnt.abovelimit.place but not the bc.tnt.abovelimit.activate permission and attempts to chain explosions that link above the blast limit, the TNT above the limit will not explode.

    What is the blast limit or blast height limit?

    They are the same thing. This is the limit setting to deny TNT or Creeper explosions from happening above ( this just translates into the y-axis range ). You can get the current y-axis of your character by reading the value that F3 puts onscreen within Minecraft. 0 being bedrock level and 128 being the highest point in the sky.

    Why 'bc.tnt.abovelimit.place' permission?
    On the server that I play on, TNT is used allot for leveling out large strips of land or abandoned buildings in SMP. This allows a regular/VIP user to place the TNT and call an Admin/Mod to detonate it.

    Features:
    • Restricts Creepers to exploding over the blast limit
    • Grants Creepers the ability to attack with fangs if their explosions are inactive
    • Linking TNT explosions work properly, even across adjacent chunks
    • Allows specific groups of users to use TNT in different ways
    • Gives the ability to reclaim placed TNT
    • Allows admin to change TNT properties
    Command Permissions:
    Code:
    bc.set.limit - Allows the use of the '/bc limit', '/bc triggerlimit' and '/bc linklimit'
    bc.set.enable - Allows the use of '/bc enable' and '/bc disable'
    bc.set.creeper - Allows the use of '/bc creeper'
    bc.tnt.reclaim - Allows the use of '/bc reclaim'
    bc.set.yield - Allows the use of '/bc yield'
    bc.set.radius - Allows the use of '/bc radius'
    
    Commands:
    Code:
    '/bc help' - Displays help
    '/bc status' - Shows the current blast limit and the current users restrictions
    '/bc reclaim' - Toggles TNT Reclaim mode on and off
    '/bc [enable/disable]' - Enables/disables BlastControl
    '/bc limit [x]' - Sets the new blast level to x
    '/bc triggerlimit [x]' - Sets the new trigger time limit to x ( in milliseconds )
    '/bc yield [x]' - Changes the blast item yield of explosions ( percentage )
    '/bc radius [x]' - Changes the blast radius of TNT ( in blocks )
    '/bc linklimit [x]' - Changes the maximum amount of linked TNT explosions
    '/bc creeper [x]' - Changes creeper behavior ( see creeper behavior table below )
    '/bc reload' - Reloads user configuration ( only available when Permissions Plug-in is not present )
    
    Creeper Behaviours:
    Code:
    'enable' - Does not limit creeper explosions in any way
    'disable' - Disables creeper explosions completely
    'disable-fangs' - Disables creeper explosions completely but gives them fangs to attack with
    'disable-entity' - Disables creeper explosions from doing any block damage, will still damage entities (Players, other mobs)
    'disable-despawn' - Disables creeper explosions completely but, despawns them on destruct
    'limit' - Restricts creepers to only exploding under the blast limit
    'limit-fangs' - Restricts creepers to only exploding under the blast limit, but gives them fangs above the limit
    'limit-entity' - Restricts creeper exploding normally under the blast limit, above the limit they will only do entity damage (no block damage)
    'limit-despawn' - Restricts creepers to only exploding under the blast limit, but despawns them when they attempt to explode above the blast limit
    
    Future Development: (opinions needed, these are not set in stone)
    • Adding TNT chain limits for different user permission levels
    • Giving different TNT strengths for different user permission levels
    • Allow control over Ghast explosions (low priority)
    • Throwing primed TNT (opinion needed)
    • Allow arrows to prime TNT (opinion needed)
    Restrictions:
    • This plug-in will disable the ability to activate TNT through redstone and fire

    You can modify the permissions file in the blastcontrol folder and change the settings to allow regular users to use TNT and give them the abovelimit permissions.

    Minecraft doesn't have a BlastLinkLimit, this can also be turned off in BlastControl by giving all your users the bc.tnt.abovelimit.link permission. This does control how many TNT can be detonated in a chain.

    The default BlastControl settings for BlastRadius, BlastYield are the minecraft defaults which I believe are:
    BlastRadius=4
    BlastYield=30

    The BlastTrigger limit is a BlastControl thing to tell if 2 TNT explosions were linked together. This should not be modified from the 10000 milliseconds default. I am considering removing the ability to change this value as it just seems to cause admins to botch their BlastControl settings.

    It is a .jar file ( .jar files are renamed zip files ). Your browser is changing the name. Just rename it back to .jar

    For the life of me I cannot give users permissions to use TNT. I want anyone with build rights to be able to use TNT, so that's anyone except the default group.

    My user.properties:
    Code:
    # BlastControl Permissions - true means ops are required.
    
    #Sun Jun 05 14:56:47 CDT 2011
    bc.tnt.abovelimit.activate=false
    bc.set.creeper=true
    bc.tnt.abovelimit.place=true
    bc.tnt.immune=false
    bc.set.yield=true
    bc.set.enable=true
    bc.set.limit=true
    bc.set.radius=true
    bc.tnt.allowed=false
    bc.tnt.reclaim=false
    
    My settings.properties:
    Code:
    # BlastControl Configuation
    #Tue Jun 14 01:16:24 CDT 2011
    Enabled=true
    BlastRadius=4
    BlastYield=30
    BlastTriggerLimit=10000
    BlastLimit=128
    CreeperSetting=disable-entity
    
    And I've tried giving the allow permissions and not having them there; either way does not seem to work.

    I'm not sure why this is darn painful--I know it's something entirely too easy/simple I am just looking over.

    Thanks for any and all assistance. :)

    Just for clarity, Are you running permissions plugin ( or any derivitive )? What version of CraftBukkit? What other plugins do you have installed? All of them.

    Thanks for the response. I apologize for not having put that information in my first post--that was a silly mistake of me. So here it is:
    • CraftBukkit: I have tried with both 818 and 860. I am sitting on 818 for the time being until a few other plugins get updated, however.
    • Permissions: Permissions 3.1.5b
    • Plugins: BlastControl, cavein, CommandBook, DropControl, EverCart, ExactSpawn, FenceStack, Graveyard, LyTreeHelper, mcMMO, MCTelnet, MinecartManiaCore, MinecartManiaSignCommands, MinecartManiaStation, MobLoot, MoveCraft, OddLight, Permissions, Seasons, ThunderJoin, TorchLight, WorldEdit, MinecartManiaAdminControls, MinecartManiaAutomations, MinecartManiaChestControl
    I'll also post my Permissions groups file; however I fully understand that is not your alley at all, I'm only posting it just in case someone spots something, and in case it's asked for in the future:

                - '-bc.tnt.immune'
    I have tried with and without the bc.tnt.abovelimit permissions.

    I think the real problem here is I keep trying to Frankenstein settings together; I've become flustered. Yet, when I approach it logically (as I have tried to do), I still cannot seem to just get it to work with any configuration. I am certain it's just some silly little thing I keep looking over and over again, mainly because I'm an idiot. :'(

    Anyway, thanks again for any and all assistance! I really do appreciate it a lot.

    Oh, if you have permissions installed 'user.properties' is ignored ( It only gets created if permissions are not installed. )

    As for getting this to work, you need to give your members the 'bc.tnt.allowed' permission.

    Hey happo2000, since the 1.6 update, I'm sure you know, the Nether has been added. This is all great fun, but i've also encountered 2 problems:

    The first one: Ghast.

    These cute flying spaghetti monsters like shooting their spicy meatballs at my lovely garden, murdering all my petunias! A.k.a. I would like to be able to stop the terrain damage (but still keep the player damage), what should I do?

    The second one: TNT.

    Like you said, TNT is great fun, but destroying the terrain isn't in my opinion, therefore I disabled terrain-damage by setting it to 0. But, now also the players dont get hit anymore :O What am I dong wrong here?

    could you add a feature that doesnt allow more than X amount of TNT to be placed in the world at a time? my users can still lag the hell out of a server even with the linked explosion limit

    Oh, permissions, how you sometimes make me want to put a live whale down my throat only so that I could be a submarine.

    Thank you very, very much happo2000. It worked like a charm, of course. ;)

    There currently is no option to change TNT so that it only does player damage. It's something that I will be looking into eventually.

    Can you please make it configurable that TNT can be activated by redstone and fire, because I only use this plugin to disable blockdamage by creepers.

    Eyh guyz, i use your plugin and its working great ! I wish one thing : can you make a release with multiworld support ? I need to allow the block damage of creeper in my world1 and disallow it in my world2 (i got 2 world : one free build and one roleplay)

    IS there a way we could get it that when creepers are set up to only blow up below the blast limit, but will do entity damage at any level, the levels ABOVE the blast limit "revert" the block damage, instead of the creeper just disappearing before the explosion animation? Though it does do damage properly above the blast limit, it is quite anti-climatic to not see it at least blow up.

    Thanks for this plugin, its awesome but..

    can you add an optional messgae when you go under the limit ("TNT is now enabled" message when you are deep enough)

    I'm using this for creeper protection. I have it set to not interfere with the dynamite blocks, yet there is no explosion when TNT is triggered by redstone. Please advise.

    This seems to conflict with worldguard, as users cant open their chests anymore.
    They get Worldguard: No regions defined

    Any chance of it being able to disable block damage but still have player damage?

    BlastControl has always disabled TNT being triggered by redstone.

    I believe this is working with #953 .. although I'm not sure. I can't trigger TNT explosions like we're supposed to. Via redstone or fire.

    yes the control of blast and creeper control and other preventions are working it just wont allow people that are permitted to detonate tnt via redstone/fire which is unfortunate since thats how it now has to be activated

    could you please make it so you can add something in the config so TNT could be set off by at least redstone?

    as 1.7 stops you from setting TNT off by clicking it :(

    didn't think of that lol
    damn i feels stupid

    oh wait... for some reason it doesn't work on mine
    the tnt does its SSS and it flashes but i doesnt actually do any damage and i have checked the radius and TNT isnt blocked using any other plugin... this is strange
