      • Elevators
      • Cauldrons
      • Light switches
      • Readable bookshelves
      • Toggle areas (advanced toggle doors and bridges)
      • Hidden switches
      • Custom block drops
      • Apple tree drops
      • Bookshelf drops
      • MORE!
    • Redstone
      • Integrated circuits
      • Programmable logic chips
      • Redstone pumpkins
      • Redstone netherstone
      • Ammeter
      • MORE!
    • Minecart features
      • Booster blocks
      • Brake blocks
      • Reverse blocks
      • Ejector blocks
      • Chest-storage minecart transfer blocks

      • Sort blocks
      • Message announcer block
      • Minecart dispensers
      • Change minecart behavior

    WorldGuard is his top priority. He is almost done, you can track his progress LIVE here:


    He is online and currently working his ass off for us. He thinks WorldGuard should be done before the end of today. WorldEdit is already up, you can download that here:


    After WorldGuard is done, he will have CraftBook up. Remember, his plugins are huge and widely popular. He was working until 5am to finish this stuff, and slept for just 4 hours before working on it currently. Be patient.

    Ahh well i see, and yea he is doing a great job. But why worldguard first?

    And that world edit, is that for Minecraft V1.4 already? final build? cause there still stand it isnt compatible
  4. Offline


    Yes. Use the link and you will have WorldEdit working. Also, here is the CraftBook link, working for me now too!


    As for priorities, WorldGuard is now his final un-updated plugin. It is a HUGE (and i mean HUGE) plugin for all servers, I won't go public without it. The anti-griefing abilities are great.

    thank you work for me too

    Aye, in order of importance it goes like this: commandbook (basic server stuff), WorldEdit (dependency off WG) the provided link is a temporary fix now, but it works, WorldGuard (no update for me without this), and last in line: Craftbook, the fancy extra stuff.

    The update cycle may be slow, but what he releases is top quality.

    so when will the update be out for minecraft 1.4? i really like this plugin and i want it back dang it!!

    It is unfortunate that I had to switch over to FalseBook, which is a pretty good copy of CraftBook. I would like to stay loyal to SK89Q, so whenever this is updated I will switch back. I still use WorldGuard and WorldEdit and love them dearly, especially the client-side mod for cuboid selection. Totally awesome!

    The higher priority plugins have been updated and released just today. I believe there is still some testing that needs to happen as well. This is fairly low priority compared to the other plugins so I wouldn't expect to see any updates here until next week.

    Seriously quit asking "Is it ready yet" over and over. Learn2Read. You can start your server with worldguard and all of the important stuff working. So you wont have gates and drawbridges right now, big deal. Just tell your players to wait.
    Side note: You want plugin devs to work faster? Click their donate buttons and give them some decent chunk of change. It really helps to motivate development. Or at least, helps to curtail the "Why am I waisting my time on this?" feeling.

    For the love of Christ.

    Is asking "when will it be done" when the forums are FULL of people saying "shut the fuck up, be patient, and stop asking when it will be done" worthy of hitting the 'report' button?

    Omg I am just asking for a date!

    Just use Falsebook. I got tired of waiting for CraftBook. No offense but it's been over a month since there was any update. I fully understand that the author has to update WG aswell, but it's taking too long.

    As i said, use Falsebook. It has pretty much the same features and 95% of them work.

    tnx for updating (we) you are the best bud .. the compass is like a drug,, so is this mod looking farward for the update :) we love your work keep it up :)

    Confirmed working now to test the little things !!!! Thank you for the update .

    EDIT: I am curious when are going to have a config file that we can edit to extend items such as bridge lengths? Right now it seems to be hard coded to 30 I have bridges that are quite long and to overcome this issue I have placed signs at 30 block intervals.

    For those who cannot wait: you can use a dev build, it comes with a warning though:

    I use build 84 now, it works perfectly on cb621, and has quite some ICs working, no self-triggered ones though.

    -link removed-

    Sorry guys, I will ask SK first if he's ok with people using dev builds.
    We all know SK usually only releases polished plugins.
    He might not like it that I spread links to unfinished and possible buggy builds

    However, if you do want to check out this working Craftbook version with some more ICs, join my server :p

    That's what I'm using now, I can verify that so far, It works.

    Is there an Posibility that you can make Rails on the Turnable bridge that Appere/Disapere together with the Bridge. Would be nice to make a Turnable brigde with Rails on it.

    May I suggest adding glass which is turned dark when powered by redstone? you would ofc then have a grid-structure for the redstone to lay on (so you would have 2x2 glass blocks and then around it a 4x4 ring of cobblestone where the redstone is on)
    This would be perfect for underground caves with lightshafts, but which are also meant to have a "day/night-cycle"

    Use toggle area. But it doesnt work in alpha1, and not in the current dev builds either.
