    Multiverse 2 - World Creation/Management/Teleportation & More​
    Current Version: 2.2-AB

    Multiverse 2 is a ground up rewrite of the popular Multiverse plugin for CraftBukkit. There are many new features, the biggest one being the much better usability and cleaner code! MV2 has been in the works for over 2 months and given the size of it, the developers are confident that you'll find a small bug or two.

    • Fixed whitelist/blacklisting once and for all :), thanks to @ledhead900
    • Add permission node 'multiverse.portal.exempt' -- Basically means they don't have to pay the cost of the portal... this is useful for Donors and such.

    Yeah. Someone finally did it.
    It would be great, if it used iConomy support ;)

    Ah thank you... knew I forgot something in the ToDo list.

    Will hopefully get that done tomorrow along with some other things.

    Cosmic Break

    when i tried to add an existing map, it overwrote the map, and made a new world.

    could it be conflicting with essentials /world in any way?
  5. Offline


    Shouldn't be, if a world already exists with that name/foldername then it should load it rather than creating it. That parts not done by me, it's how CraftBukkit loads a World.

    Just double checked now and copied my 'world' folder and named it 'world2' then did '/mv create world2 normal' and it loaded it instantly rather than generating a new map.

    Will try installing Essentials and having a look into it, but there's no reason it should overwrite it unless you chose the wrong environment type.

    Hopefully you followed the first step in the HowTo =D.

    Thanks for the response, will keep poking around and see if I can find the issue.

    it would be nice if you could add a chat feature saying which world a person is in.


    [World][Owner][CosmicBreak]:Chat Text Goes Here.

    I have iChat, so would i dont know, but you may have to contact that developer in order to attempt this.
  7. Offline


    Not a bad idea, will have a look into it and see how iChat deals with things.

    Never know iChat may take it on by default as MultiWorld servers will probs become standard thanks to DinnerBone & Co.
    --- merged: Feb 8, 2011 7:19 AM ---
    Ok easier than I thought... That's sorted will be in tomorrows update.

    From server.log
    2011-02-08 07:16:14 [INFO] [HELL][Admins] Rigby90: testing 123
    Will allow for it to be toggleable in the config, some people may or may not want it.

    Any further developments on your world being overwritten?

    awesome! i cant connect to minecraft.net right now, so i'll have to wait to see any further changes. i have hourly backups, so thats all good. now i need to get the developer of backup plugin to see if they can work up a build to support this
    --- merged: Feb 8, 2011 7:36 AM ---
    also would like to know if it is possible to set a custom spawns for the extra worlds. i wanted to try out one of my old established multiplayer maps, but i dont want to have to wander all over the world to find already complete structures, since one of the old maps has a hub and a a lot of towns connected to it.
  9. Offline


    Short and sweet answer would be... yes you can freely modify the spawn point of any of the worlds loaded...

    Providing the plugin you're using for /spawn /setspawn was programmed correectly with 'Worlds' then it can freely edit the spawnpoint of the world that you're in.

    I believe Essentials can edit spawns in multiple worlds.

    Altho saying that I may implement '/mvsetspawn' - That way it's definately covered.

    can you make it so the signs can touch any block. currently you can only go thru a portal if the sign is on the front of it, and you can only go thru the direction the sign is on
  11. Offline


    Hmm that's suppose to happen. Whats meant to happen is when it detects the player standing inside a PORTAL block... it should check the radius around the player for a Sign that contains information on where to teleport.

    Will double check I got my coordinates right and test it.

    And again, appreciate the feedback.

    Obsidian gate w/ sign didn't work, though /mvtp worked perfect. -- actually funny issue, the first obsidian gate worked w/o a problem, then from there none worked. -- another funny thing: when I checked the yml file, for the world that worked the environment key was misspelled

    Bigger Issue:
    When I got back to the non-default world there were monsters! (just zombies though... go figure)

    Cosmic Break

    they all work fine for me, i currently have 2 gates to other maps and on those maps, gates going back to normal.

    make sure you set your world folders right

    also make sure you did the commands right
    --- merged: Feb 8, 2011 8:33 AM ---

    ok, i figured it out, it sends me to a spawn relative to where i came from on another map. not a spawn that was already preconfigured on the old map
  14. Offline


    Nope, there are the creepers

    And yes, everything was spelled and set up correctly, I checked it 4 times..
  15. Offline


    It either overwrote my world or placed me really far from the original spawm point, either way - I cant find our town lol! Nice work though glad someone created this :D

    Works great, thanks so much!

    Looks sweet going to try it out now.
  18. Offline


    Thanks for this!

    Only bug I still have is on my main level, if someone ports back to it, they will not be anywhere NEAR the spawn. I have found the two specific areas they often land in, and can see no rhyme or reason to it. Both chunks are very very far from spawnpoint.

    I opened the level in MCEdit, but could see no reason for this, even edited those chunks to make sure they were clean. No go. If you want I can zip my level and host it for you to check out.

    Both the alternate world and the nether work perfect though in regards to spawnpoints.

    Aside from that, Great! glad I got to test it early ;)

    Oh and I would like to request World aliases, so instead of [mv] crazydumbname they may see [mv] Flat World
    or something of that sort.

    Aside from that, I think I am completely 100% satisfied. Save the few notchbugs with nether.

    im guessing this reacts different based on build version?

    on build 271, all portals port to the same area when coming back. like on my world

    in normal map i have [mv] snow
    in snow map i have [mv] normal
    when i port to snow world
    i port at snow spawn and when i use the portal back to normal world, i respawn at the normal world spawn

    if ur having problems, i suggest using /setspawn. it saves a seperate spawn for each world.
  20. Offline


    Well between my other two worlds it's fine. And /setspawn doesnt help. I confirmed in MCEdit that the spawnpoint is correct.

    Between "nether" and "world" everything is fine, but between either of those to "world2", and you spawn far far away. /spawn will put you back where the actual spawnpoint is.

    I will try on a newer build (I am on 264 as we speak) tomorrow.

    Hello, i have a question:

    1. It's possible to specify portals manually? I have several portals from my previous nether and i don't want to loose them.
  22. Offline


    Not sure if these are in but I might as well spew what I like to see in this or in the future.

    I saw permissions but assuming that was only to create new worlds not portals?

    First a dev note if its annoying to play with spawns don't bother then and just wait. "<Dinnerbone> It's going to be a property people can set"

    1) Permissions on creating and destroying gates.
    2) On top of permissions please add a simple whitelist system that can be set per portal. I will explain this more at the bottom.
    3) allow a blacklist item system to filter certain blocks from going to one world to another.
    4) Might not want to do this might be a separate mod though I like to see it all in 1. To enable and disable cross world chat.

    Now why would I want a whitelist system if you have a permissions and such? Well permissions are messy to start with and not simple for large servers who want to add and remove access for people to use portals.

    I personally think each portal created has a folder named after it and inside have a config for future things you add and information with a whitelist and such added inside.

    This what I'm doing on my server

    World 0 (PVP/PVM Normal World) Public Server total chaos.
    World 1 (PVP/PVM Nether World) Public Server total chaos.
    World 2 (Nother World) Private Whitelist Server!

    So now you can see where that whitelist will be super handy.

    Thanks for reading this and I hope you keep working on this wonderful mod for months and heck years to come :)

    I would also like to add you should change [MISC] to [TP] I think might get more attention and be a little more correct even though it's more then 1 feature.
  23. I'm having a minor issue where I can't create a world with the command as it tells me I don't have the rights to that command. I'm pretty sure it's a mistake on my part with permissions, but I can't be positive. Can anyone post a permissions file with the permissions for this plugin for me to get an idea where mine might be wrong? This is my first time setting up a specific plugin to work with permissions

    Ok I'm slightly confused, have you got 'mobs=false' somewhere? Bearing in mind the plugin atm cannot disable mobs on alternative worlds, I believe it uses the global setting in 'server.properties' as to whether mobs will spawn or not. Will look into it, will refine most of the plugin today, seems like DinnerBone updated some things which should make the plugin alot safer at least.

    Yeh strange, stumbled upon this earlier when I was trying to find the problem with signs sometimes not working. Think I'll just save the coordinates on the very first teleport to a world, and then every teleport there afterwards we'll use those coordinates. (Should hopefully be more precise as well, rather than all over the shop).

    Hmm, if it's using an old world I don't believe it would create a new spawn, will have to verify this. But yes turns out I was wrong and sometimes the plugin would overwrite an existing world... This has been corrected in the latest CraftBukkit though. Apologies if you lost your world.

    Can you elaborate? You place a sign on a NetherPortal that states its a [MultiVerse] sign and give it a destination.

    Heres a snippet of my test server permissions file. An example of a group that has access to the MultiVerse commands.

            default: true
                build: true
                - 'general.spawn'
                - 'multiverse.mvtp'
                - 'multiverse.mv'

    Portals are created automatically at other side, right?

    But i want to link already created portal.

    Hey guys is it normal that in a NETHER World everything around you explodes all the time?
    I dont see any Creepers or so it just explodes near me all the time!
  28. Offline


    Atm no NetherPortal is created on the opposite side, this is to prevent people from spam making NetherPortals on one side to then have the other world ruined by vast amounts of portals.

    You'll have to manually create a NetherPortal back to the previous world.

    If you have 'mobs=true' in your server.properties file then this will be the Ghasts in the Nether world... They shoot FireBalls which on contact explode. However I believe theres an issue atm with the FireBalls being invisible.
  29. Offline


    That could it be. Is there a way to fix it? Is this more a Bukkit problem or a MultiVerse Problem?
  30. Offline


    The invisible FireBalls... I believe is an SMP issue. As usual I maybe wrong. But it's not caused by MultiVerse at least.

    All MultiVerse allows you to do in its current form is create new worlds with 'ease' and teleport between them using commands or using NetherPortals. Until "CREATURE_SPAWN" event is implemented I can't prevent mobs from spawning in a specific world.
