    It works with the stable 1060 version, so do I still need to wait for the new stable CB version is out, or do I need to change the CB version back to 1060?

    UPDATE 0.1.1 - Chat Message fix

    The new version of World Portal is out. It's just a really small update wich contains a Chat message fix, it was just the message you can see while creating a new world portal. If you have World Portal already installed on your server you only need to update the WorldPortal.jar file, the config files are still the same.
    You can find the download in the first message of this thread

    So I'm trying to do a "multi-world" thing for my SMP server with a few exceptions... I'm curious if your plugin will allow for what I'm trying to do:

    - WORLD ONE: A standard vanilla survival world w/ the nether as usual. 100% Survival.
    - WORLD TWO: Create a 2nd world called "creative" that is just another generated standard map, but with Creative Mode turned on for everyone.
    - Inventory doesn't pass from world-to-world. But loads a different inventory when you pass through the portal.

    Is this something your plugin can do? Or should I look to another plugin?

  13. Offline

    Tim Visee

    That teleport thing works fine, this is one of the best plugins to do that I think. About that creative mode and the inventory, I havent a creative mode thing build in, you need to use another plugin for that, and im sure there's one wich can do this, that same thing for the inventory's, Im really sure there's another plugin to do that, but you must know there's no plugin with teleport functions AND that inventory/creative mode build in so I think you need to use 3 different plugins.
    I will try to add those features later, but I think that will take a long while, because I need to do a lot of things...

    OK cool so you can pass from world one to world two without an issue. Excellent. It functions kinda like going from Survival World to Nether, right?

    I'll check on the inventory locking/loading for each world. Thank s ;)

    This plugin is for teleportanion, so you can teleport to another world, like world2 or something, and of cource you can also teleport to the nether because in the server it's also a world file. You can even create a portal to the same world to a different coorinate, like spawn or so. So, yes, you can pass from one world to another without an issue :), so pass from a Survival World to Nether is also pobbible, just make a World Portal to the world 'world_nether'.
    Btw, one thing, currently there's a bukkit server bug, if you create a pressureplate, only with a pressureplate and you stand on it (if its an portal) you will be teleported and then will be kicked because it sais that you moved too fast, but if you make a 1x1 hole (1 depth is fine) it will work, I dont know why this happend, but yeah..
    Btw, I hope I answered your questions :)

    Currently my router is broken, so I need to use Hamachi right now, if not I can show you how it works... if you want to, but then you need Hamachi :(

    That's no problem, I run a home server so I can test it out there. I think this might do what I need! I will be testing with along with MultiInv (that will preserve inventories properly like I want). I plan on deploying this to my primary server after 1.9 releases - so I wanted to get testing for it now.

    Tim Visee

    k, if you need anymore help please tell me :). Oh and, if that MultiInv works, can you send me a message, that would be nais because I want to know if it works to help other people. If you post your answer in this thread, its fine.

    if a switch cannot be interacted with i.e. locked with some sort of permissions will this stop ppl using the tps ? also if a sign is locked with permissions to a single person will the tps work ? cause that would be nice :) just curious :)

    Yes I think so, Im REALLY sure! In my server I use World Guard protection and I have rights, so of cource it works for me, but some of my friends don't have rights to destroy the portal place, and they can teleport using the signs and pressureplates too!
    Also, if you flip a switch witch is a World Portal it will teleport you and DON'T flip it.. Just for protection :), so if you have redstone behind it, it wouldn't be powerd!
    So as I already said im REALLY sure it works with protected areas. I suggest to just test it, can you tell me if it works?

    I'm trying to get this plugin working on my server, however when I warp to soemwhere the chunk underneath the warp-to location does not load, unless I disconnect/re-connect to the server.

    Is this a glitch, or something I haven't setup correctly?

    No, In my and other server this works, maybe its another plugin or something that causes this problem
    Or you have a slow server.
    Are you teleporting to another world, or to another location in the same world, how far is that away?

    Yes, when you create a World Portal you must select a loction in the world where the players teleport to. So you can choose from 'Spawn', '<x> <z>' and '<x> <y> <z>'. So when you link the portal to spawn, the players will be telelported to the spawn of that world, you can also set the teleport location to coordinates, so <x> <y> <z>, when you hit F3 you can see your current location... The <x> <z> are only 2 coordinates without the hight, when you use this the player will be teleported to the highest block on X, Z.
    If you don't know how to enter theese coordinates into the chat, just type;

    Hope this helps?

    Oh yes of course, great :p

    Hmm, its probably better if I write a guide or something that tells everybody how to make them, or maybe a video...

    I am having a problem with mine. The portals work just fine when I make them, but if I close the server down and restart it, the portals stop working and I have to remake them. I also notice that in the server it says "File 'World Portals/World Portals.txt' not found". Not sure what this means.

    Brother Dave

    Is there a way we can control which direction the player faces after using a teleporter?
  29. Offline

    Tim Visee

    Ah yes, I know whats wrong, and why this happend. There's an external file where the plugin will save the world portals while closing and load the portals from that file when the plugin starts. The plguin can't find the external file, so the plugin try's to save the portals but the plugin cant (just because the file doesn't exists).
    In the download of the plugin you'll find a folder called 'World Portal' you need to copy ALL the content to the server, the WorldPortal.jar doesn't generate default files. If you done that, you probably changed the World Portals external file path or something. Hope this helps, if not, just tell me.

    No currently not, I also want that feature and Im adding it soon!

    It's still saying the same thing for some reason. There was 3 files in the folder, and the main file. I copied it just as it was, with the 3 files in the folder into the plugin folder and the WorldPortal file into the plugin folder also. Still says the file is missing though. Not sure what it is that doing it.
    I also took those files out of the folder and put them with the other plugins to see if that would work and it didn't.
