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.

    Hi, first off let me say that I reaaaally love this plugin!
    But I'm getting this error when i just rebooted my server

    15:41:58 [SEVERE] null loading ItemDetector v0.9 (Is it up to date?)
            at net.gamesketch.bukkit.itemdetector.Data.stringToData(
            at net.gamesketch.bukkit.itemdetector.Data.Load(

            at net.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer.a(
            at net.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer.init(
    And now all of my detectors aren't working anymore.

    Any way to fix this, or am I doing something wrong?

    how do i use the @limit-function =? :confused:
  5. @Dope
    The error points to a part of the script "world.getBlockAt(x,y,z)"
    1. your world is corrupt
    2. your world is renamed
    3. some chunks in your world are removed
    I suggest trying to make a few other gates, and then try to reload the plugin
    its also possible the sign is somehow removed (creeper?) and therefore can't load that block

    the @limit is basicly meant as "You can have these, but NOTHING more"

    sorry but i don't really get it because a sign like this:
    don't work for me ...

    could you give me an example
  7. Offline


    #remove is still not working for me, BUT for other players do, I guess it's a permissions thing
    anyways, it does his job perfectly, thanks :)
  8. Code:
    this will block you from entrace if you have more items in your inventory then just an diamond sword

    I just removed the entire plugin (the jar and map) and added the jar back into the plugin folder after stopping the server.
    It seems to be working fine again now, even though I had to recreate all of the detectors.
    Anyways, Thanks!
  10. also guys, thanks for all this positive feedback ^^, I didn't expect this plugin having 1k views per day

    How about you make it so that when someone goes through the gate they are given an item if they don't already have one. I don't know if you were already planing this but I thought I would write it any way.

    Allways i get a errror
    Make a Framework First
    what is that ?

    Forgot to change it on the first page. :)

    Your gate MUST have a solid frame AND the 2 torches (I found this out earlier)

    I have done it and it does not work.

    I tried to recreate the demo video step by step and it fails.
    it always says "Make a Framework First" and deletes the singn.

    Don't know if it could be possible since @always can't work with some other options, but it would be really nice to make an option that blocks the player IF he doesn't have the specified item, just like a train gate, only letting people to pass with a ticket

    @Malzbier try to restart the complet server .. if it's not working just clean up all blocks around the gate you want to create =D try it

    Can you make the messages customisable or at the least fix the spelling, I'm testing one of detectors and after recieving the message a few dozen times you can't help but notice that #block denial message reads
    The force of the gate stops you from "continueing" instead of "continuing"

    nothing some Error
  21. What is the error?

    1.0 will have an hidden configuration file which you can change stuff, i'll add those lines too.

    can you maybe screenshot your frame?

  22. I really don't understand how to make it so that when the gate detects TNT (block id 46). I want it to remove TNT from the inventory of the person walking through. Could someone please post what i should type on the sign.

    no problem =D you only have to ask =D
  25. Great plugin, working well. Any chance you could add the option of making the arch 2 wide? I'm using it before a portal to PVP, so the detector is blocking half the portal.

    Also the option to remove any items a person is wearing (armour) would be great. Thanks.

    the plugin SHOULD remove the item in the complet inventory (inventory+armor)...
    i think its buged. =D
  27. Offline


    You should have an option to remove any actual weapons so it isnt as difficult to write out each item code
  28. Hi can you make a Other Plugin like this but with the Feature "Can only enter if are this or this Item in the Bag"
    or Add it to this Plugin?
  29. Offline


    if they have the listed items they are sort of reflected back out

    Getting this problem when i make the Frame i keep getting "Make Framework First" which i have done exactly as your video said to, and ive tried using different materials and different torches and etc.
