    Cloaking is still broken. I suggest you guys disable it from your user's permissions for now.

    Where can I find these bugfixes? I'm looking at the comits, but I don't see any bugfixes listed. Am I looking in the wrong area?

    Using Phaed's GitHub is your best option at this point. However, I will be providing a descriptive list of changes in a changelog for future versions.

    I'm going to create an organized system where there is a permanent link to the latest version, as well as a library of previous versions. I cannot do this now, but I'll set it up in the near future.

    Thank you for your support!

    Hi, I just installed this shiz, works like a charm however, is there a possibility to give ppl exclusive acces to an area withing a protection field? Like I have a city protection field, but I want to loan someone an area within that field.
    Can't seem to do that without giving him acces to the whole area for now it seems.

    Also is there a way we could enable to make it possible to make the different colors of wool precious stones?
    This would add about 15 blocks usable for precious stones that elseway have no purpose but looking pretty.

    :p Nice addon anyways.

    Disable cloaking from all your users. Its broken in the current version.

    Enhancement request:

    I'd really like to see the ability for protecting minecart tracks. Basically just like City Protect, but with an 1x3xN block protection profile; lay the track directly on top of the pstone and it protects that block plus the two air blocks above it, plus each adjacent block with connected track (and their two air blocks), extending down the track for N blocks in all directions.

    I've seen too much griefing of tracks such as removing sections of a bridge above a lava pit or placing decapitation block around a hidden bends.


    There's nothing quite like the panic and despair of following your fully loaded minecart around a bend and watching it plummet into lava.

    is it possible to make a forcefield require multiple blocks? for example, rather than a single diamond block = forcefield, i'd rather it was 4 blocks in a 2x2 cube to make a forcefield because I don't want it to be too easy to make them, is this possible currently or?

    you could use falsebook with cauldron recipes and make it an ore that is really hard to make :) just a thought
  21. Offline


    thanks for the idea, but falsebook looks pretty big for what I need to do

    My flatfile unbreakables.txt has 140+ MB (my server has 300+ players) so PreciousTools is taking AGES at each reload. This plugin needs ASAP db support ( mysql, sqlite, dunno)

    Devs: This will ever happen ? If NOT, I will start looking for a alternative solution (i.e: another plugin)

    This showed up in my logs;

    2011-05-01 06:05:24 [INFO] [PreciousStones] version [3.2.1] loaded

    2011-05-01 06:05:24 [INFO] [PreciousStones] loaded 24 forcefield blocks

    Normally over 500 forcefields are supposed to load, but it stopped after 24 this time. Any idea what could have caused this? I had to roll back my server 7 hours because of this.

    First of all, this plugin is called PreciousStones. And I will not be adding database support. Phaed may want to, but his time is limited, so don't expect anything from us.

    @aPunch hey.. would it be possible that you know to add a feature.. i know its a absurd request but I generally NEED it to make my server work...

    I NEED a feature (permissions) that disables building outside forcefields but allows destroying.. its for my RPG server ya see... I want people to only build in Towns (provided by Forcefields) and their jobs would occur outside of town but if they could just light up the tunnels and build everywhere there would be no added danger to the world and there would be no point in them to buy plots of land...

    which is what i planned on doing before releasing my server to the public. having em buy a forcefield of a city (each plot is 21 blocks squared) and they'd have different size cities like settlements = 7 plots and towns = 15 plots and cities = 36 plots but if they can just build without it my entire economy is for moot

    basically i need a option to only allow them to build in forcefields but still destroy things outside of them

    me seriously love you long time if you even consider assisting me. today me... tomorrow you :p bros for life lol

    and can you make a forcefield for disabling Monsters in a forcefield? or just kills em fast?

    not sure about cause but you should be able to rollback the forcefield.txt from the "old/" directory in the "PreciousStones/" directory without effecting your map. Not sure how the numbering system works but the highest number is the latest backup and one is created everytime ps saves.

    Please help!

    My server went down, and when i try to put it on again, PreciousStone DOESN'T run giving aways this error:

    16:16:22 [SEVERE] null loading PreciousStones v3.4.1 (Is it up to date?)

    I'm desperately lookin for the old 3.4.0 version so I can try with. I have 300+ users, and, as I said in my other post, big flatfiles is killing PrecisousStone :(

    sorry, i was furious

    This bug has been fixed. Will need to wait for aPunch's next release.

    I am looking into converting to bukkit's built-in persistence, Ebeans (mysql). Also no need to be rude. Have fun with OwnBlocks.

    There is no reason at all to go off on someone like this. My server runs many more players than 10/15 yet precious stones reloading is not a problem at all! Why do you accuse the devs of having no skills , do you even know them? This is all uncalled for.

    Yes. That's why i edited my post :D
