    This is now inactive - 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    Samkio made a usage video here, it is a touch out of date but the general idea still works: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; '', '', and ''. If you have an '*' on any user/group, remember to '' 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.
      • All configuration values associated with these are gone now.
      • Gate shapes without these default to
    • 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.

    A real example of a constructed gate:

    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)

    • 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)

    • 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)
    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

    Help plugin settings (open)

    • 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.

    Is there a way to disable /wormhole compass. On my pvp server, users want to keep there stuff secret and the ability to use the /wormhole compass command discourages them from using the Stargates.

    Can happen with any long distance tp. Bukkit and/or MC failing. Relog to fix this bug AND/OR loss of skin.

    FYI Lologarithm/alron : build#499 *appears to have fixed* the sign scrolling problem. I use this phrase loosely as I've only done about 10 gate jumps testing today. This included cross-world portalling. However, the problem had always occured before that many jumps before. Fingers crossed.

    I'm curious about a few things. I could probably read the source for this, but hopefully, at least, this isn't in the readme.

    1) Can you construct a gate + dialer with an IDC? At present, it doesn't seem like it can. /wxcomplete on a gate + dialer (after it is constructed) does not let you add the IDC. Construction Error. If not, then this is definately something to add, perhaps with warning (or without, since the usual DHDs didn't have warnings about an iris)

    2) Can you include perhaps a 'manual' dial mode for dialer-based gates, so that you can activate the gate and ready it for a /dial command to connect to an on-network but off-dialer gate?

    The iris won't work period for me i put the lever on and put in a code to have the iris and it won't activate after i flip the lever what did i do wrong

    1. Sign dialed gates can't have IDC yet - mostly because there would be no way to disable it. If I go through with adding a manual dial button to sign gates I will probably add the ability to add IDC.
    2. I have thought about it - maybe including a second button under the sign that lets you 'manual' dial a gate. It just seems silly to have 2 buttons that can activate a gate.

    Well, since it was released less than 24 hours ago, I didn't even know it was out yet. I can probably get it fixed tonight.
    EDIT: It doesn't look like there are any breaking changes in the newest version. Try using it and see what happens. There will probably be a warning from WX but there shouldn't be any errors.

    First you need to construct the gate properly /wxcomplete <name> idc=<value>. When you do this a lever will appear. I might add an admin only command '/wxidc' or something that lets you get/set an IDC for a gate.
    --- merged: Mar 7, 2011 12:57 AM ---
    So the reason it is complaining is because Permissions is telling WX that it is version 1.0. Are you running GroupManager or anything else that is pretending to be Permissions?

    Hi guys,
    I'd like to say thanks for developing this plugin, it is great fun! Would it be possible to integrate redstone support for activating the gate from a further distance than the current default shape? Such as having the DHD in a different room, like in the SGC.
    I also saw in a post that you could have multiple .shape files? Do you think if I created a new .shape file but only change the DHD location, this could do the same thing as using redstone? Is there any limit on how far away you can have a DHD providing you set it correctly in the .shape file? Please correct me if I have anything wrong in my ideas.
    Thanks again.

    This will work, however your DHD orientation must remain the same relevant to the gate. As long as the .shape file correctly tells WXT where the button is relative to bottom right of gate (described in docs somewhere) you're away;)

    Sweet! Thanks for the lightning fast reply! Definitely testing this after work, haha.
    I will post my results here for anyone that may be interested. :)

    I have an issue where after reloading or restarting the server, ALL of my wormholes get wiped. Gates stay, but the data gets deleted. Idk if its your plugin or the the database .jar, though.

    Any exceptions? Probably hsqldb not stored in the lib directory

    Im having a problem with the wormhole, seems to work fine but as soon as I activate the gate it says "Gate Successfully Shutdown" even though I have timeout set to 0. Im using a signed gate.

    I don't see anyone else having a problem with this, so it might just be me, but I followed everything exactly. When I try to dial it says I need a solar flare. Why is this?

    Firstly, Awesome plugin.

    I am having a couple issues though.

    I might have found a bug, but I will try to reproduce it. I activated a gate but did not dial, then activated another gate and tried to connect to the first (before it timed out and shutdown). The wormhole did not connect (expected), but the first gate I activated is now locked in an active pre-dial state and I cant dial into it. Other gates still work, but that one gate is frozen.

    I Have found my error in creating a custom gate, i was not making hte DHD 2 blocks high. The above issue is still valid however, and I have reproduced it as a bug.
    The other issue I am having, is I am having trouble building a 'custom' gate shape. I was trying to do a portal that is 2 - 1x5 columns of obsidian with 3 spaces in between. the 3x5 space in between would be air\portal. The plugin seems aware of the 'shape' and i somehow managed once to get it to 'auto-build' a gate from DHD. But cant seem to get it to auto-build or manual build more of the structure... I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Attached is a screenshot of the portal, below is pieces of the Pillar.shape file




    Please note, the configuration seen in the screenshot is the auto-built gate, but i have tried a plethora of different button placements, and ground removal to try and get more of this type of gate to build.

    Craftbukkit version: 495
    Other plugins: Towny 0.46, iConomy 4.3, Permissions 2.5.2

    I am testing as an OP atm, so I think I should have full permissions, but even then the node has been given to Default atm.

    Have done this. Also ened up with an "UberGate" template anyways (wanted something impressive for my central gate). But as long as the names are different the shape can be repeated.

    I did build a tall DHD out of obsidian that led upto the controll room, then hid it in the walls. Not sure if this was needed - Lologarithm, does the DHD have to extend down to the same level as the gate base, and does it have to be all obsidian? Or as i suspect was I over cautious and its just the location of the button+sign that matters?

    I too would like a iris on a signed gate and a manual dial option (i don't mind 2 or 4 buttons/signs in a row - my control room has only 1 block height showing the contoll room see pic). Maybe gates on the sign that are locked can be striked out? and require a console comand to unlock for sign dialing? </conjecture>

    All DHDs are only 2 blocks tall

    At some point when I have tons of extra time and not a lot of other features I want to work on I will allow for custom DHD shapes, but for now you can move it around.
  23. Something that may assist with the Startgates stopping working ? ..... Today, I installed MincartMania teleport plug-in. Whilst setting up some signs to see how it worked, I used a startgate to go to a second location ready to set up a bit of track and a sign, but I'd forgot to bring a sign. I tried using the Stargate to get back and it had stopped working, so I got back by some other means, picked up my sign and went back to where the Stargate wasn't working. I set up my track nearby to the Stargate and put my sign down. When I right-clicked on it, it wouldn't give me the text saying it had successfully connected to the first sign ? ...... I went back to the first Startgate (which was still working), tried setting up the track & sign - worked OK there ? I shutdown & restarted my Minecraft Server & went back to where the gate hadn't been working - it was now, then I set up the MinecartMania teleport Sign, and now it worked OK & connected ....... I'm not sure how 2 unrelated plug-ins could have the same problem, however, I'm just throwing it in as possibly a bukkit problem rather than a WXT problem ....... I hope my post makes sense, its hard work trying to describe the issue with text, and I'm fairly new to posting.
    The only commonality between them is the teleporting function and the text linking 2 sites together ........ ? hope this assists.

    A little hard to understand, but I get what you mean. It is REAAAALLLY interesting that two different plugins that both use signs are both broken in the same spot at the same time.

    i got a problem with the Wormholes. They work for some time and then without a warning the broke. There isnt a Warning in the Console on putty. I dont know what the problem is. I can use them for 5-6 teleports and then i am only walking through the water. I also have re installed the plugin an make a new DB. Only when I restart the Server they will work again.

    Is this a known bug?

    i'm having trouble connecting to my server using a debugger from eclipse.
    how do i debug the plugin?
    I'm using MCmyAdmin and i'm not sure how to get it to start in debug mode. I think i understand how to get eclipse to connect once my server is set correctly but i'm having trouble passing arguments to set java into debug mode using the MCmyAdmin server wrapper.

    i have tried following the instructions provided at

    Yes, I am one of those with this problem. There was some discussion a few pages before.
    I hope this problem will be corrected, the plugin is really great.

    And I have question : is it possible to disable the iConomy payment sentence when the amount of use is set at 0.0?

    That is easy - I will have that in the next version :)

    Great work on the plugin. I think I might have posted earlier in this thread and said that, but still!

    I'm curious, though. I have given my users the build permission, but they cannot use the /wxbuild command. Is that currently an OP-only command?

    No, I've been using this for a while, and I've always kept it in my root directory. I don't know why it started acting up like this suddenly.

    I missed the original question, but if you're talking about the database file, you need to put it in the lib folder as of an update or two ago.
