    This is now inactive - http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/tp-wormhole-x-treme-multi-world-capable-stargates-v1-011-953.23973/ is where you can find the currently active developed version.




    Release v0.854 contains the fix to stop the IndexOutOfBoundsException that happens when 3d shapes have no light blocks. Also contains the fix for 2d gate iris levers (they get added properly again). The Wormhole X-Treme Worlds support is for a version of WXW that is still under development, expect things to break badly if you enable it without the proper version of WXW (0.5, which is not released as of yet).

    If this is your first time downloading this please download the zip, it contains the database software we depend upon.
    You are also encouraged to read the changelog and readme. Especially the readme.
    Basic instruction for use and configuration can be found below.

    Major Features:
    • Player teleportation!
    • Multi-world support
    • Permissions integration (As well as some basic built-in permissions)
    • Custom 3d & 2d gate shapes
    • Iris password protection
    • Minecart teleportation
    • Help plugin integration

    When I first heard about bukkit I knew I wanted to write a plugin. As I always wanted a way to teleport around I thought it would be fun to write a mod that could do this. I thought writing one like the Stargates from Stargate would be cool.

    So I decided I would make my own portal plugin as my first try at bukkit (and really first mod for Minecraft so far).

    So here is my release of Wormhole X-Treme!

    Samkio made a usage video here, it is a touch out of date but the general idea still works:


    Changelog with important entries in bold (open)

    Changes 0.854
    • Updated chunk (un)loading to happen when gate (de)activates and when dial lever state changes happen.
    • Fixed iris levers not being added properly with 2d gates. (Oops, guess that code WAS needed)
    • Fixed IndexOutOfBoundsException on 3d gate shapes without lighting blocks.
    • Hamfisted fix for signs not updating. Now we nuke the sign and build it from scratch every time a gate sign is toggled. Causes a flash, but... who cares. It works EVERY time now.
    Changes 0.853:
    • Fix for /dial gates breaking when a user who doesn't have dialer permission hit the lever.
    • Switched to getTypeId() from getType(), hopefully this works around the getType() == Air bug that might be lingering.
    Changes 0.852:
    • Added support for upcoming Permissions 3.0.x release.
    • Fixed a NPE in 2d shape code dealing with light block positions.
    • Added soft dependencies to plugin.yml.
    • Minor log format changes for readability.
    Changes 0.851:
    • Complete revamp of how we handle permissions checks. Lots more case statements, lots less if/else if. Much better. This is what enums are for.
    • Added new gate use cooldowns. This feature will only work on complex permissions enabled servers. There are three groups you can assign a player to; 'wormhole.cooldown.groupone', 'wormhole.cooldown.grouptwo', and 'wormhole.cooldown.groupthree'. If you have an '*' on any user/group, remember to '-wormhole.cooldown.groupone' etc. There is a new command to enable, disable, and modify cooldowns; 'wormhole cooldown [true|false|group] <time>', valid groups being 'one', 'two', and 'three', valid time being between 15 and 3600 seconds. There are also Settings.txt options for all of these new settings. Cooldowns are set when a player enters a stargate, not when they /dial. Cooldowns are removed via timer events, and even if the timer event fails, we do a fall back calculation when a player enters a stargate, and gets denied access.
    • Added new gate build count restrictions. This feature will only work on complex permissions enabled servers. There are three groups you can assign a player to; 'wormhole.build.groupone', 'wormhole.build.grouptwo', and 'wormhole.build.groupthree'. If you have an '*' on any user/group, remember to '-wormhole.build.groupone' etc. There is a new command to enable, disable, and modify build count restrictions; 'wormhole restrict [true|false|group] <count>', valid groups being 'one', 'two', and 'three', valid count being between 1 and 200. There are also Settings.txt options for all of these new settings.
    • Updated the stargate sign dial sign reset code to be more reliable at causing the client to notice update changes.
    • Added a thrown exception during stargate 3d shape parsing if the shape doesn't have an exit point. We depend on this location for pretty much everything. If it isn't there, really bad bad bad things happen.
    • Now we have more than just Standard as our default shape. We extract Standard, StandardSignDial, Minimal, and MinimalSignDial to the gateShape folder if it is missing shapes.
    • Now we don't toggle stargate signs when we start.
    Changes 0.850:
    • iConomy support removed. I will not depend on plugins that decide to change their package name 5 major versions in and basically give everyone who depended on the package location the middle finger.
    • 3d Gate shapes now implemented.
    • Custom gate settings now in place (read: per gate material settings). This included the re-addition of the portalmaterial and irismaterial commands. lightmaterial, redstone, wooshdepth, and custom commands newly added.
    • Massive internal overhaul, refactorings, cleanups, general goodness and bugfixes.
    • Added support for Wormhole X-Treme Worlds. This allows Wormhole X-Treme to offload its chunk loading and world loading to WXW, for worlds that exist in WXW. Requires user to change Settings.txt option WORLDS_SUPPORT_ENABLED from false to true. This option requires Wormhole X-Treme Worlds v0.5 to be installed, and preferably configured for every existing world populated with stargates. If this option is set to true but WXW is not v0.5 (or not installed), WX will not load its stargates from its database.
    • Removed many superfluous chunk load requests. Added graceful chunk unload queue when we are done with a chunk.
    • Bumped supported version of permissions to include the 2.7 tree.
    • Updated help text for new/modified commands.
    • Added backwards compatibility, for those users who just don't want to upgrade to 3d shapes.
    • Added loads of failsafe settings, for when users don't have any shapes installed, but have stargates already.
    • wxidc now only works on non-sign powered gates which have iris activation blocks set.
    Changes 0.833:
    • Fixed iConomy double(or many many more) charging issue. Tried to do something awesome, turned out to be a bad idea. We'll revisit these kind of changes when 3d shapes are in and I can do some major refactoring and method merges/splits.
    • Bumped supported version of permissions to include the 2.6 tree.
    • Merged some of the sign click schedule related methods. Should make sign click messages more reliable.
    Changes in v0.832:
    • Fixed a NPE in new database initialization. Whoops, missing null-check, added.
    Changes in v0.831:
    • Fixed erroneous messages sent when a plugin is attached to already and WXT receives a plugin event for it. Cosmetic bug, fixed.
    Changes in v0.830:
    • Water now will not flow over Stargate anythings. No more broken levers and magic blocks of water floating in their place.
    • Buckets now will no longer work with stargate anythings. No free water and lava.
    • Minor optimizations and code cleanups.
    • PORTAL_MATERIAL, IRIS_MATERIAL, STARGATE_MATERIAL, ACTIVE_MATERIAL are all part of gate shape now.
      • All configuration values associated with these are gone now.
      • Gate shapes without these default to
        • PORTAL_MATERIAL = STATIONARY_WATER
        • IRIS_MATERIAL = STONE
        • STARGATE_MATERIAL = OBSIDIAN
        • ACTIVE_MATERIAL = GLOWSTONE
    • Updated default gate shapes that come in the zip to include these new values.
      • See gate shape files for more details
    • Removed version 1 DB conversion because new design doesn't allow for it anymore.
      • For users this means if you are upgrading from version 0.3 or less to this version you will need to remake your gates.
    • Fixed NPE in onPlayerInteract caused by event not reporting the block the interact event was associated with.
    • Logic tweak in the find safe teleport code. Should be *safererer*
    • Sign powered stargates now can only target other sign powered stargates.
    • Fixed so that when coming from a lava portal stargate to a non-lava portal stargate fire damage is canceled still. No more nasty fire after a teleport.
    • Added the logic back in to stop people from randomly teleporting when next to the lever of an active gate. The side effect is, when block.getType() fails, gates don't work. Its one or the other.
    • Fixed /wxcomplete permission deny issue with stargates on public networks.
    • Added ICONOMY_OWNER_EXEMPT option to Settings.txt with a default value of true. When true this option disables the charging of gate owners for using their own gates.
    Changed in v0.821:
    • Update version of iConomy we build against and test for.
    • Fix NPE in old non-shape based gates.
    • Added custom StargateTeleportEvent for MinecartMania as we nuke the minecarts before we teleport the player and put them back in the minecart.
    • Refactored package to com.wormhole_xtreme.wormhole in anticipation of adding more stargate related projects.
    Changed in v0.820:
    • Initial support for CraftBukkit Build 600.
    • Got rid of the stupid double error that people got by not reading the readme. Now when we parse settings.txt, if the value is integer for the iconomy settings, we change it to a double by simply dropping a .0 at the end of it. Problem solved.
    • Lots of optimizations to the distance finding method we were using. Also fixes to the gate shape parsing code. (Thanks lirelent)
    • Overhaul of the way we handle permissions internally. More unified approach to the actual permissions checks.
    • Gate block protection should now be compatible with plugins like mcMMO. "Should" being the operating word.
    • Levers now properly move when used and toggle on and off when stargate and iris are activated.
    • All Permissions deny events now log at Level.FINE. Got permissions problems with WXT? Now see what is happening.
    • Optimized fire protection. Now we use timer events that go off 2 seconds after gates close. This way we don't have to listen for fire type events 24/7. :)
    • Fixed teleportation dropping people into very unsafe locations. Now we scan for safe place to drop people, if we can't find one we drop the player in front of the DHD. This will also FIX wormholes by setting the stored teleport location to the new clean and safe location.
    • We now support using the help plugin along with WXT.
    • We now have settings.txt options to hard disable support of iConomy, Permissions, and the help plugin. No longer do we log a warning when unable to find the plugin we depend on. We log at INFO. :p
    • Buttons are no longer really used. If a button exists on a stargate, it will be replaced with a shiny new lever on the first use.
    • Lava stargates are *really* safe to use now. For trees even. Not minecarts though.
    • A whole host of debugging information has been added at Level.FINE. If you can trigger a bug reliably, set yourself to fine and provide the server.log details surrounding the bug. Not recommended for production servers as well... its exceissive.
    • The '/wormhole regenerate' command is partially added. Will regenerate missing activation and iris levers.
    • Minecarts work across chunks and worlds now! If you run into a location where it doesn't work, use the wormhole in both directions to correct the wormhole, then try again. :)
    Changed in v0.812:
    - /wxgo now works properly when traversing world bounderies. First we quickly pop into the default spawn location for the target world, then from there we go to our final destination. It is a hack, but it is a working hack. :)
    - methodized the code to find closest stargates, and find distance from closest stargate blocks as well as the math to find distance.
    - Updated block ignition events to only use proximity style checks. Block ignition event cancellation radius increased to active stargate woosh depth or 4 blocks, which ever is further.
    - Updated '/wxcompass' to use new FindClosestStargate method.
    - Updated onEntityDamage to use only proximity style checks. On active gates a bubble of no fire damage of either woosh_depth or 4 blocks, which ever is larger, is created. On closed gates a bubble of 2 blocks is created to stop fire ticks occuring right as a gate closes. Stopped caring about potential drowning in stargate. If user decides they want to stand in the wrong side of a gate till they drown, that is their choice.
    - Re-added missing CONSTRUCT_NAME_TAKEN error string in ConfigManager. This stops an NPE in 'wxcomplete'.
    - Added support for tkelly's Help plugin. Will generate proper config based on permissions type (simple or complex) or lack of permissions plugin altogether.
    - Refactored the heck out of iConomy and Permissions support. Own classes in a new package to go along with the Help support. Methodized a bunch of useful functions. Less duplicated code.
    - Added some log output for 'wxforce'. Should help combat abuse.
    - Ops are now always able to use 'wxremove'.
    - The '/wormhole simple' command now refreshes Help entries to the proper permissions after being set.

    Changes in v0.811:
    - Came up with a proximity based check for stargates in the lava & fire event
    cancellation code. Now only 3 block radius around active lava portals
    gets its lava & fire events cancelled. STATIONARY_LAVA is safe for players
    to use in portals now. For reals.
    - Version 4.5 of iConomy is now supported and verified as working.
    - Now we actually check for Iris on gate use while in minecart...
    - Back to the good ol kick the player out of the cart and stuff them through
    the stargate method. Doing a bit of a hackish teleport when going between
    worlds as well. We tp to spawn, then instantly to destination. This is only
    when starting the tp while in minecart. If minecart is empty and passing
    into a stargate that will traverse worlds, we kick the minecart back. Otherwise
    it will dissapear into the void.
    - Now we cancel block ignite events on a proximity basis, same way we cancel
    fire and lava events on player. No more trees bursting into flames near a stargate.

    Changes in v0.810:
    - Broke '/wxcompass' out into its own class. Removed '/wormhole compass'.
    - Broke '/wxcomplete' out into its own class. Removed '/wormhole complete'.
    - Broke '/wxidc' out into its own class.
    - Broke '/wxremove' out into its own class. Removed '/wormhole remove'. Fixed so it toggles iris to off state before removing gates with iris active.
    - Broke '/wxlist' out into its own class. Added no permissions error message. Removed from '/wormhole' command.
    - Added command '/wxgo' and broke it out into its own class. Added no permissions error message.Removed from '/wormhole' command.
    - Broke '/dial' out into its own class.
    - Broke '/wxbuild' out into its own class.
    - Broke '/wormhole' out into its own class.
    - Added another message for active gates. Now it will say either remote activated, or activated by someone else already.
    - Added SIMPLE_PERMISSIONS config option. The default value of 'false' makes permissions node settings use complex mode. While the setting of true sets the plugin to check for extremely simplified permissions. Permission node details can be found in the README.
    - Refactored the WXForce class to Force. Hopefully this shuts MSSE up. ^^;
    - Moved a bunch of the initial loading out of onEnable and into onLoad. Now we use onEnable only for events that should only happen at plugin Enable.
    - Updated '/wormhole' command to have more descriptive errors and built in help. Updated help information for this command as well. Command now has unified messaging string headers. Added new 'simple' option to enabling simple permissions while the game is live. Requires the user to have proper permissions node for configuration in target mode. Removed a bunch of duplicated permissions checks. Only one check is needed at beginning of command call now.
    - Revamped readme to reflect important recent plugin package changes.
    - Fire damage, combustion damage, and drown events now canceled in stargate. Now LAVA is really a valid portal material.
    - Creeper explosions are now canceled when they would cause damage to stargates. This will stop signs and buttons from being destroyed during that mad dash to/from a stargate. ^^

    Install directions (open)

    New Install:
    1. Download the zip.
    2. Unzip file into same directory that your craftbukkit.jar exists in. This should put the hsqldb.jar into the lib/ folder, the WormholeXTreme.jar into the plugins/ folder, and the latest versions of GateShapes into the plugins/WormholeXTreme/GateShapes/ folder.
    3. Start server
    4. (Optional) Stop the server and edit the newly generated /plugins/WormholeXTreme/settings.txt file as needed.
    5. (Optional) Edit gate shapes in /plugins/WormholeXTreme/GateShapes/
    6. (Optional) If using the Permissions plugin based plugin, set up the appropriate permissions. If using SIMPLE_PERMISSIONS = true remember to use permissions from the Simple Mode list, otherwise use nodes from Complex Node.
    7. (Optional) Start Server again

    Basic use instructions (open)

    Basic Use:
    First off you need to make a stargate. I you can see the design design below - you need the Gate, a Dial Home Device (DHD), and a stone button or lever facing away from the gate on the DHD. The purple blocks are Obsidian, and the Blue has to be air, but will turn to water when the gate is activated.
    basic_stargate_and_dhd.png

    A real example of a constructed gate:
    2011-01-24_01.53.11.png

    You MUST make the gate exactly as it is in the picture.

    Once it is assembled hit the button ( You need to stand at least one block away from the button for the event to trigger. ) and the system will confirm that the stargate is properly made. If you don't see a "wormhole design valid" message you did not create the gate properly.
    If you did see the message, you simply type /wormhole complete <name> to finish and name the gate. A name sign with the gates name should appear on the gate. You can optionally type /wxcomplete <name> <idc=[IDC]> (idc = iris deactivation code, or the code needed to use the gate) - this will make your gate password protected.

    Now if you hit the button again it will "activate" the gate to be dialed.

    To Dial (after hitting the button) you type "/dial <remote_gate_name>" and the gate will open and fill with water! (You can change the portal material by using /wormhole material) The gates currently don't by default timeout after dialing. If the remote gate has an iris code you will need to type "/dial <name> <idc>" to activate the remote gate.

    Hitting the button again from the gate that dialed out will deactivate the gate. Pressing the button on a gate that has been dialed in to will do nothing because you can't activate a gate that is remotely activated. (Tried to keep it just like the show haha).

    Name Sign Dialing (Public Gate System):
    • NOTE: This is an alternate way to BUILD a gate. Currently existing gates will not work by simple placing a sign next to the activation button. You will need to /wormhole remove first and then re-complete the gate using this system.
    • Place a second obsidian "pillar" next to the main DHD and place a sign on it. Put the name of the gate on the top line.
    • Gates with this sign can only be dialed via the sign now. You will only see other gates that have a sign.
    • Gate without a sign can dial IN to a sign gate.
    • AGAIN : If you make a gate without a sign it will NOT be on the list of gates.
    • To cycle through possible gates use right click - Sometimes it takes a click or two for it to work :)
    • See here for sign dialer gate example:
    • 2011-01-25_02.15.31.png
    • Note - unless you have STARGATE_FULL_ACCESS or "wormhole.remove" you will be unable to destroy any blocks that are part of the gate.
    • Networks!
      • If you put any text on the second line of the sign, it will be the "network" the gate is on.
      • You will only be able to dial other gates on the same network as you
      • Currently you cannot change the network, so make sure you type it correctly!
      • By default (if nothing is put on the second line) a gate will be part of the "Public" network.

    Basic configuration settings (open)

    Configuration:
    • All configuration is now stored in a file /plugins/WormholeXTreme/Settings.txt
      • All descriptions of the settings will be found in that file with the settings.
    • You can change some options while the server is running:
      • /wormhole activate_timeout <optional_timeout>
        • This is the length of time after activating but before dialing that the gate deactivates.
        • This does not affect sign dialed gates.
      • /wormhole shutdown_timeout<optional_timeout>
        • Setting to 0 means portal only closes after something goes through, and then immediately closes.
        • This setting is how long after a player dials a gate before the gate shuts down.

    Permissions plugin settings (open)

    Permissions:
    • This plugin works with the Permissions plugin. (Currently 2.5+ Only)
      • Changing the built in permissions will not change the Permissions plugin at all.
    • Without the Permissions plugin you can use the built-in permissions (disabled by default)
    • /wormhole perms - for more information
    • to enable/disable default perms /wormhole perms active <true|false>
    • When built-in permissions are active:
      • Default OPs get all access
      • Default all other users get USE only
    Permissions Plugin Nodes: (Controlled by settings.txt - SIMPLE_PERMISSIONS)
    SIMPLE_PERMISSIONS = false
    Complex Mode:
    wormhole.use.sign - lets a user use sign gates.
    wormhole.use.dialer - lets a user use '/dial' gates
    wormhole.use.compass - lets a user use '/wxcompass' command.
    wormhole.remove.own - lets a user remove a gate that they own
    wormhole.remove.all - lets a user remove any gate

    wormhole.simple.config - Lets a user configure WormholeXTreme settings

    Help plugin settings (open)

    Help:
    • Currently there are no configuration options for Help the help plugin. It is just plug and play. If you want to change the help text, you are able to do such via the Help plugin override build into the Help plugin.

    As always please let us know of any bugs! Just remember, some bugs are in vanilla and craftbukkit itself, so we may not be able to address them easily.

    Hey Everyone - just fixed a ton of bugs. I actually have it all sorted out now :)

    Turns out I didn't understand how the Location system works - and I do now haha.

    Hopefully this newest release fixes most bugs. Next release should be more feature-driven.

    Also - when you install this latest release you will have to delete your data, saves were corrupt because they were storing bad data.

    I didn't have time to put up the linux version, I will do that tonight. Sorry for those of you on linux :-p
    @Finrod I think you are running an older version of craftbukkit - get a newer one. That was added a few releases ago.

    Oh you bad man. >:O

    I'm on linux :3

    Looking forward to that update.
    So I'll have to delete the stargate folder and start again? do I lose my current stargates?
    Also does the permission system save after a world restart?

    Give me 5 minutes and I can have the linux version up and running.
    I am sorry about losing existing gates (just click the button again to re-add them... I know, I know, its annoying).

    Permissions still don't save - all i need to do is write the SQL statements to store/retrieve them but I haven't had time because I have been fixing all the major bugs that stopped it from working entirely.

    If i can get the perm saving stuff done in a few minutes I will put it up, but I have spent *way* too much time coding in the past day or two ( I just started coding this project like.. 48 hours ago) and my wife is really getting jealous of the computer ;)

    WOW your a coder and you have a wife. I didn't know people like you existed.

    Very nice plugin btw. Will run it as soon as it gets a little more stable.

    Looks like I can use Linux style paths and it works fine in Windows - so now there is only 1 zip and should work just fine for both AWESOME!

    Uploaded and ready to go!

    @ShivalWolf I would say what I just released is actually good enough to start trying and you won't have to worry about it being quite so alpha any more. I have added stuff internally so that I can now migrate data as it changes and won't ruin anyone's day anymore :)

    Ahhh cool. Well I will give it a try then.
    I run a linux server so I was waiting for that side to be nice.

    Java has a special method that allows you to use relative paths OS independent I am guessing you discovered how to use it. I can't remember what its called but i know it exists.

    @Jobsti - It is possible to do custom portal shapes, but it would require a little bit of fiddling with my code that checks for proper gate setup. Honestly, it is a cool feature idea but will be at the bottom of the bukkit (hahahah) until I get some more needed features in.

    Edit:
    Also I could easily write a config value to change the portal material from water to lava or air or the nether portal stuff.

    This mod is awesome, thanks. There is that one glitch when porting if you stop moving. You get stuck in the bottom of the gate and it slowly kills you. If you can't get out. Log out quick and log back in. You will survive. Having fun running around making gates. Haven't tried the sign system yet.

    With I had a time control mod. Nightime comes to soon when building ;-)

    Thanks again for your time on this.

    Lologarithm, I love the plugin but i'm having the same error as Jordanial:
    This leads to my portals being broke actually. They work once but fail to shut down and thus are unusable again. When I try to use one again it just says "invalid target" about any of the other portals. If I make a new one it works once on any of the other portals even the open ones. If I had to guess the shutdown command is obviously failing by I don't know why.

    I downloaded and installed craftbukkit and this plugin yesterday (so I hope they're the latest version). I'm also running big brother, playerlist, and hotwaps plugins. Any help or questions please ask. I really love the idea of craftable portals so i'm motivated to get this working.

    Hey Kipz -
    Yesterday was my first release and I have had 2 since then (well... 1.5). I should put the version number in the .zip name too just so people can make sure they have the latest version. Download the version I have currently attached to the first post! You will find it much better :)

    Lol, ah well then you're moving fast :) ... I will give that a try. Thanks again for making this.


    PS the cmd line says it's version 0.1

    For me it loads correctly, but Stargates do not work and calling the /stargates command creates errors. I am using your latest binary with the latest craftbukkit release.

    EDIT: I was making a mistake, right clicked instead of left clicked. :) Works perfectly! :D

    Lol I just got the slide into the ground and die glitch. Looks like it took to long for my terrain to load. I tried again and the same happened but I started jumping and came out in a room well below the portal. Odd.

    PS: btw you were right about the version. That fixed the other problem perfectly.

    @cubanmissile - I have changed it to be right click in the newest version. Make sure you are using it!

    @kipz - that seems weird as I thought I fixed that... I haven't seen that issue on my server at all since I put up the 0.25

    Also @Jobsti I thought about your request, and I think for a "Stargate" themed plugin the gates should remain looking like gates. There are tons of other portal mods that you can use that have all sorts of shapes. This project is focused on Stargate and so I think I will leave it as it.

    That of course doesn't preclude me from making something different later.

    I've installed the update on my server, and as far as I can tell, the slide into the ground glitch is gone (using most recent bukkit version). I tried using the sign method of gate but I couldn't get that to work, do you have to put the sign up before you use the /stargate complete command?

    And, a minor thing, but when ever anyone uses a gate, they are looking straight at the ground, not a big deal, but thought I would mention that incase it was unintentional

    I attached a screenshot to the first post of where to put the sign.

    I know about the looking at the ground. It is unintentional, I just haven't worked out the proper pitch/yaw yet when teleporting.

    Hey lologarithm, I seem to have trouble with the water POURING out when activated due to water flow, and this is a necessity for our server, Any way to change material?

    Ah, yes I should have looked at that, I was putting the extra obsidian on the left side of the DHD. However, when setting up two gates like this, instead of the name of the other gate it gives me this >[email protected]<

    Also, my player skin is removed when I go through a gate and I have to die or disconnect to get it back (that may just be due to the skin system being down)

    I just don't even know what I'm doing wrong, but the design is correct down to the last block. I have 2x1 obsidian towers on all sides in the proper location and nothing happens when I pull the levers. /stargate complete <any name> just tells me that the name's been taken, when I know it hasn't been!

    @Lologarithm Yeah I read you had but it definitely happens to me and one other player. The distance isn't terribly far either. Just about 100-200 on the x-z plane and about 15 units on the Y axis. I was thinking it's to do with load times. I have about 3 seconds before I load terrain, meanwhile I get that spinning view while looking down and I start sinking. If I let it sink I wind up in the ground. On the other hand through experimentation I found that if I just hold down my spacebar I swim up in the water (that I can't see but is there) and I don't get the problem as much when the area loads. I tested all our portals and there seems to be consistent culprits so I wonder if location has something to do with it. Some are partially buried too, maybe this is the cause?

    That doesn't do anything for me unfortunately. I've tried everything. Build 137, btw!

    Done, and I just thought I'd mention that there are NO server errors and I wiped the old StargatesDB folder. :(

    The server IP and port I sent you are correct, I just had a whitelist up and forgot to add you. Fixed that, though!

    Hi

    I downloaded and installed Tuesday moring and the zip file was "Stargate-Windows.zip" and now the new version is out which is 0.26. My question is. Do we only need to delete that one folder "StargateDB" and replace the Stargate.jar file. If we replace the other file in main server folder. Won't that delete our current stargate locations?

    I was getting the same thing, gate name taken when i was trying to complete the gate. I found that I was left clicking the button, i right clicked the button and instantly got a message that the gate was created correctly.

    I too am having problems getting thru the gate to another gate that is elevated high above sea level. the first 2 times i tried, i ended up in a cave below the gate. I filled in the spot in the cave with coblestone and tried again and went all the way down thru the bottom of the map and died. Im using the newest CB and just downloaded the plugin about 20 minutes ago..
