    Been looking for a new portal plugin, as VoxelPort keeps killing everyone for some reason o.o This looks just create, really interesting idea for portal system :D Nice work!

  4. If you haven't already, have a look at Wormhole Extreme.
    Currently the Creative Gates plugin is fairly lightweight and simple, and personally I like its design. For something with more complexity, you could perhaps think Wormhole ! You can create your own shapes and add permissions for who uses each gate - I think if the dev was to try your suggestion on this plugin, he'd be heading toward a database model, which is far more than it needs. Of course, this is only my personal opinion. I am hesitant to ask for anything extra because it keeps adding to the potential issues, but the only thing extra I'd like to see is being able to take a minecart through the portal. If that's too much of a problem, then its just amazing as it is !

    Yeah I've tried it. Though it's outdated.

    So are you going back to dev'ing factions? :p

    I am new to bukkit. And I saw that you said this was multiworld capable and I was wondering how I could run two worlds at once. I have been trying to do this for a while but I cant seem to get it if I run two worlds on different ports they aren't linked. I would love it if someone could clear this up for me.

    Only by the newest RB. :) And that's soon to get fixed.

    @Olaf, I rather like this when I am using my test server. It makes me go to all my previous sites, and I know I am going to be inspired by seeing old stuff. lol.
  9. If you are running 2 Minecraft servers on 2 different machines, this plugin is not for you. The only plugin I know of that can do this is HERE, although its somewhat out of date - not sure if its going to be updated. I think there was another one a while ago, but I can't remember what it was called, or even if its up to date.
    If you are running 2 worlds on the SAME server, then this plugin will do what you want, although you will need another plugin, for example HERE. Use this command based plugin called XCraftgate to warp to your other world, set up a unique 'Creative Gate' on that world, activate it, then warp back to your original world and set up the same style gate again and activate it. You should now be able to warp between worlds. You could then remove Xcraftgate because you wouldn't need it any more.

    What if you mix materials. Like gate made of Cobble and Moss?
  11. Creative Gates does distinguish between cobble and mossy cobble - if you create a gate with this combination, then you can create another gate with the same combination and that would be a unique pair of gates, i.e. you could only portal between 2 gates of cobble / mossy cobble (unless of course, you added a 3rd gate of the same material - in which case, that gate would join the loop)

    sounds like a awesome plugin.
    personally i'm going to get my mates used to my "portals".
    then one day. i'll get them to follow me through...
    i'll destroy a block behind me. destroying portal 2...
    and have my victim visit portal 3.
    which would be spawning creepers !

    The two worlds would exist on the same server and thus on the same port.
    You need a plugin to create the new world though. Perhaps multiverse?

    Test that plugin and you will understand :)

    haha yeah or you build lava in front of one of the gates :p
    or just a deep pit ^^

    I have a problem with this
    When I put 1 Gate in the normal world and the other in another it works fine
    But when I restart my server the gate in the other world seems to stop working
    and when i activate it again its all fine again.....
  15. Interesting - I have found a similar problem. I've been looking at the 'gates.txt' file in the plugins/creativegates folder. When I stop my server, the txt file contains the correct information, but partway through the server restart (I presume at the moment CreativeGates loads, the 'gates.txt' changes, and all gates that are prefixed with something other than 'world' are erased, which means that Creativegates no longer knows about them. I've tried manually creating a copy of the file and trying to see if a restart with my backup copy would work, but each time, any co-ordinates in this file that aren't prefixed with 'world' were erased. This means that off-world gates are only known until you restart your server - any chance of @Olof Larsson having a look at this please ?

    I have a question that sounds rather philosophical :p

    If I had two worlds running (world 1 and world 2), and people were only in world 1, would world 2 still be running/using up server ram?
  17. Unless you have a plugin that keeps chunks loaded - no

    I will probably stick to this gate plugin only :) Do one thing and do it good.

    I see. Yes I will take a look at this.

  19. This post here gives a little more detail on the problem.

    This really seem like a great plugin, but when I try to use it, it says "you don't have permission to create gates".
    I don't know why..
    Can I please get some help? :(
  21. Personally, I don't use a permissions plugin, and everyone can do everything with this plugin - which is just what I want.
    So, I assume you are running permissions of some sort - the 2 permissions groups to set are :
    • creativegates.create
    • creativegates.destroy
    I assume these are probably not set in your permissions config ? If they are, I don't know what else could be wrong because, as I say, I don't use permissions.

    You need to have gates in both worlds that you can travel between.
    Those gates need to be of the same material.
    It is also possible that you are experiencing a current bug that I', looking into right now.
  25. destroyed blocks around the portal, portal water stays and still teleports me
    also i think this plugin laggs my game a lot.

    Agreed: destroying a portal leaves "water" behind and it still operates. Server reload/restart fixes this...
    Can't comment on lag....

    Actually - it may have been because I was using Super PickAxe (which sets a block to air rather than destroy it) I will test.
    Can I ask another thing? At the moment it is possible for someone to create a teleport using the same material as someone else's, and therefore include their teleport in the other person's teleport system. This could be by accident, or on purpose!
    Could you change it so that the teleports are goverened by a sign on the frame, rather than the material?
    I realise this is a big ask! (I also realise this doesn't stop people doing it on purpose, but might prevent it done by accident)
  29. i used superpickaxe. it wont shut it down
  30. Offline


    Yes - superpickaxe is the problem. I'll remember not to use it (and my users can't anyway!)

    I don't think I have one... I haven't installed a permission plugin, so I don't understand it :(
    I have WorldEdit and Essentials on my server.. Does it make any difference?
