    SATools - Server Administration Tools:
    Version: v0.402
    Last Release: 10/3/11
    Donate!!!!!!!! <-- Please?

    This plugin is almost like a server wrapper, which in the future it may become. This is a plugin meant for people who run a server from a home computer or a location where you can access the server using a GUI. This plugin creates a GUI to make managing a server a lot easier, especially when you don't want to type and remember a lot of commands and stuff.

    Info: If you want to be a part of this project whether it be development or design, please let me know I am always accepting new ideas.


    oleg, ares765, AS1LV3RN1NJA and 2 others like this.

    MUST HAVE Either one (or both) would be great! something like that is exactly what I'm looking for as I run my server on a remote computer, and would love to be able to control it easier with such a gui.
    PLEASE make remote connectivity I will love you forever!

    Everytime I log onto the server the "Jesus" Button is stuck on for my player and it announces to everyone that I am a god. I do not liek this. A. I do not want to have godmode all the time everytime I log in only when I choose. B. I login stealthy sometimes and this plugin gives me away!!!
    Please Help!

    You should be able to deactivate god mode. Ill see what I can do on my end.

    Releasing v0.34

    Addressed the problem with saving the configuration.
    Config wouldn't save defaults
    Config had multiple guileless headers(bukkit needs to fix this)
    Config and Gods sometimes had duplicated, this problem was solved with a method I hacked up.
    The dimensions for the tabbed pane were slightly off...
    Restricted GUI resizing for now, v0.4 will be the famed GUI fixing for those with small screens.

    Please don't let the GUI resizing lock get you down, it isn't supposed to re-size in the first place. I will hold off the mapping update until l I get the GUI in order.

    Started a complete GUI recoding, to be 0.34.
    IT is hidden inside the plugin until I am ready to switch it into the place of the current GUI. I am using the GridBagLayout for the new GUI that way components are sized properly and the whole GUI is cleaner and as small as possible. Also using the resolution check to make the GUI available for everyone.

    Excuse spelling errors or whatever feeling a little tipsy, will continue work later today.

    Every time there is an update it updates and restarts but it never shows up so i have to re install it with the latest release.

    That is odd, it has never failed for me when I test it. Does any one else here have the same issue when there is an update?
  10. Offline


    umm... I'm not entirely sure... I've disabled that since I like to see what the updates are before I install them :D
    I'll turn it on and try it when I get home though

    actually... for some reason I had a test server on my work computer (whoopsie haha) that had 0.31. I tried updating via that and it got pissed off at me :confused:
    oh wait... that was B863... I should make it at least somewhat up to date before I mess with it xD

    damn... broke the .31 install by doing that haha. now I can only download .34, now it really will have to wait until I get home. sorry :p

    Can you add support for iConomy? So admin can send or give access to players sending money to eachother.
    Or even start a bank that you can administrate and things like that.
    Send money or stuff like that would have been cool!

    Yes in fact v0.34 put me in a continous loop stating.....
    there is a new update ...would you like to down load.
    answer yes
    updated download, would you like to restart
    answer yes

    then it just starts over.

    update: using the auto update showed me 2 things: my server doesn't like restarts, as every plugin started screaming errors about enabling, and 2, it broke the SATools.jar, so I have to manually update it anyways.

    after the enable errors go away I get this:

    iConomy bank or a custom coded money system?

    It may be my method I just reload the server, which has the plugins in the JVM already. I will check into this feature.

    Reverted updating to old method which just stops the server.

    teaser for new GUI, before a comment/question is made about using for smaller screens, I do not have that teaser yet since I am running from a huge 1080p screen i may have to get my work laptop out to get that teaser.

    IT will tkae a long time to finish but it will be well worth it, each part is within a scroll pane so that just incase your screen is an inch tall there is still a way to use SATools.

    Ill see what I can do about that

    View attachment 5024
    Messed with the sizes more, I have a lot of troubles with grid bag constraints :p but here is a teaser which will look the same for each screen size if your screen supports the larger SATools it will display the larger version.

    I just came up with an idea.. My players doesn't show up all the time and sometimes TWO times!
    Suggestion: Update button for updating player list!
  21. Offline


    i seem to be getting this error where names show up with odd characters in front and behind them and if somebody could help me fix it it would be greatly appreciated. :)
  22. Offline


    I will have an auto update built in, for when I finish 0.4

    I really do not know what to do about that, it is with some other plugin.

    i see a couple debug lines for when it finds the worlds, is this normal?
    [INFO] [DEBUG] SATools.GUIManager: found world_nether, size = 2

    Yea it's normal. Forgot to remove that. ;P I am far from perfect my friends. It's a sign I have been playing to much iSnipe on alterIW, to code.

    haha no worries, besides, we're all playing too much minecraft!

    Two features i would like is:
    1: Teleport [Dropdown] to [Dropdown] [Teleport]
    2: ban/kick player
  27. Offline


    Teleportation with drop down menus may come before v0.5 (mapping) now but it is hard to say right now. Banning feature is a great Idea as well, I will add an area for server white-listing, user temp ban, IP perma ban.

    I'd like to mention that your Free JVM button is a little misleading. I see it activates a constantly running GC thread. Just so you know, the JVM runs garbage collection on it's own. There's probably not a single situation in a plugin where calling the GC explicitly isn't a waste of resources.

    This is a great plugin! However, I am not using it for one main reason right now. It would make everything slightly easier, but that doesn't seem to be a good enough of an advantage for me to install it. What I would really LOVE to see, is some sort of permissions management thing. Either with the official plugin or the now built in permissions, which I know nothing about. Maybe some sort of drop down menu with your different groups, then you type in the permission node that you want that group to have, and then it adds it. I'm not sure how feasible that is, but that, in my mind, would take this plugin from being a good plugin, to a must have plugin for every server. I know that as a Server Host, I have to worry about permissions and other complicated stuff. I've tried to figure out how to use it many, many times, but I still find myself incapable. That dang YML files! This would put server hosting within the capabilities of every player.

    I have it as an active running thread for special occasions, it doesn't waste a large amount or system resources. If you would like to remove it as it may take up more resources, you are more than welcome to all my code is open sourced and on GIT feel free to fork it. Also your Server wrapper looks pretty cool! I hope my project goes to that phase one day !!!

    Permissions seems like a good thing to be able to manage through a server administrator. I will add that to my checklist, I can't promise a specific version it will end up on. My guess is when the mapping update is release v0.5. That update will be my major feature release, v0.4 is just some recoding reorganizing etc, as I am not the most professional java developer.

    Well, I wish you luck with that goal for sure. I am still trying to figure out how I want to implement my bukkit connection into my gui... It's a tricky subject for sure. Take a look at this though: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/...-call-finalize-or-start-the-garbage-collector

    edit: some server managers suggest disallowing explicit GC calls in the JVM options when you launch your server because of plugins that do this.
