Inactive [MECH/FUN] ItemDetector v1.2 - An Item-detecting gate [1000]

Discussion in 'Inactive/Unsupported Plugins' started by Streammz, Apr 25, 2011.

  1. ItemDetector - Gates which detect items
    Version: v1.2

    With this plugin, you can make item detecting gates, just like at the airports.
    It uses redstone, so combined with other plugins you can make traps, falls etc.
    On the end of this post there is an detailed instruction on how to create them.
    This uses NO commands.

    • Creating gates which can be used to detect items
    • Redstone support by changing torches into redstone torches.
    • Detect multiple items (good for an pvp-zone to detect swords/bows etc)
    • Block people from entering with specific items
    • Minecart support
    • Clearing inventory's
    • Permission support
    • Message / kit support

    V1.1 - Download
    V1.2 - Download
    Addon kit - Download
    ItemDetector is open source! (NO RE-RELEASES WITHOUT PERMISSION)

    Known bugs:
    If itemdetector is loaded before multiworlds, it will get a nullpointer and lose all data, to fix this rename the multiworld plugin to "aaaMultiWorld" and bukkit will load this plugin as first of all your plugin, this should also fix all other problems with other plugins
    Thanks to @Maxis010 for that

    How to create a gate:
    [torch][wood][torch] What you see to the left of here, is the framework of an gate
    [mossy][mossy] [mossy] The wood block left, is an sign with on the first line [detector],
    [mossy] -- [mossy] and on the second/third/fourth line should be the itemID's
    [mossy] -- [mossy] seperated by comma's.
    The script sees these lines as 1 line, so you should think its 1 line of 45 letters.

    How the #block (and future similair options) work:
    When you enter item id's on the 2nd/3th/4th line, it'll take those 3 lines and make it 1.
    If you enter the #block, the script will ignore that and make the gate blocking stuff.
    Here an quick example of what i mean (first is input, second is what script reads):
    What you write on sign --- What script reads for item ID's
    #block1,2,3,4,5,6,7     -   1,2,3,4,5,6,7
    1,2,3#block,4,5,6,7     -   1,2,3,4,5,6,7
    1,2,3,4,5,6,7#block     -   1,2,3,4,5,6,7
    List of current #options (open)

    @all - Makes the detector detect all blocks in mc
    @None - Makes the detector detect empty inventory's
    @hold - Makes the detector only detect your item in-hand
    @always - Makes the detector detect nothing, but instead always goes on whenever a player passes
    @limit - limits the blocks to these (you can't have any others then this)

    #block - blocks the entrace when activated
    #remove - removes the block from your inventory (Thinking about creating this to be OP-only)
    #pit - Creates a 3x3 pit for pitfall's
    #damage - Damages a player with 1 hearth
    #launch - Speeds up the player by 10x
    #kill - Kills the player
    #fire - Puts the player on fire
    #heal - Heals the player and puts out fire
    #repair - Repairs any tools which the gate detects
    #thunder - Makes thunder in the gate

    instead of using itemID's like in 1,2,3,4 (example), you can also use this:
    1-4 - Loads the ID 1-4
    kit:kitname - Loads the ID's provided in kitname.kit in the itemdetector directory

    To make the gate send a message, use the same method as kit, but use this instead:
    msg:filename - Sends a message provided in filename.message file in the itemdetector folder.

    Permission nodes (open)

    it works fine with me and oh I LOVE THIS MOD! I combined this plugin with bookworm and turnstile to make a library! you need to pay the turnstile to get out, you can get out if you dont have a book by walking through an item detector if you do have a book the item gate will stop you and it will play a noteblock rapidly! thx

    This works on 1.0 and the db of bukkit. only thing is it doesnt detect the newer blocks so updating this shuld be easy if some one wants to do it
  15. Offline


    I've found that the gates ignore what world they are in. This allows them to be activated from the same co-ordinates in another world. I found this when my invo suddenly vanished upon passing through the same coordinates as a gate with #remove@all on it. I also have the other two previously mentioned bugs where #block holds the player in the gate and new blocks are ignored. Also could you plz allow useage of data values as i would like to use this with coloured wool to make a CTF map

    there are permissions for the #options but it would be nice to also have a permission node to prevent people from creating a detector at all.
    I deny'd every itemdetector permission from a group but they are still able to build a detector without options. I would like to deny this as well.

    Feature request: Can you make a function that the detector also detects dropped items? Like if you shoot an item through the gate (with a dispenser or something) it detects it and the torches will get burning redstone torches? That would be awesome!

    Where can I find how to use/make more functions with the detector, The only thing I know now is how to make a itemdector that turns torches into redstone torches when it detects an item. I don't know how to use the other features, someone plz help?

    oh, I founf it, never mind :p

    If I type on the sign: 1st line: [detector] 2nd line: 2-2266#remove The detectors removes all items accept id:1 AND ID:98 is that a bug or do I something wrong???

    can you make it so it takes away a number of a block? like

    would remove 3 sponge.
  19. Offline


    Great plugin, but maybe add something that only lets players with a certain item through the gate? Not just removing a certain item?
  20. Offline


    I use @limit#block for that.
    Though it will block you if you have any more items except the specified item in your inventory.
