    Runecraft - The magic mod for Bukkit!
    Version: 2.12

    This is the Runecraft mod ported to the CraftBukkit server.

    Runecraft adds magic spells to the game which are triggered by block patterns called runes.
    It let's you create teleporter and waypoint runes for instant travelling, build hidden doors into mountain walls or enchant your tools. And more.

    • Build runes (block patterns) for spell casting
    • Teleportation runes
    • Faster digging with Power Pick and Power Drill
    • Hidden doors and traps using Phase Block and Lock Block runes
    • Build an easy spleef arena with Spleef Blocks
    • Shoot torches with Bow of Light rune
    • Works with multiple worlds
    • Support for Bukkit's permission system
    • Much more!


    The config file is named "disabled-runes.txt" and lies in the root bukkit folder (alongside etc.).
    The file is generated if you load the plugin. Each line contains an option which is either the name of a blacklisted rune, the name of a player not allowed to use runes, or a specific command. Some commands are:
    • whitelist - turns the rune blacklist into a whitelist
    • enable multiworld travel - allows teleportation using runes between different worlds
    • initiation - players cannot use runes until they activate a special rune containing bedrock
    More options are listed in the Official forum thread in the section Runecraft Administration.

    Bukkit's Permissions:
    Runecraft supports Bukkit's permission system since version 2.8.2. Use a permissions plugin such as PermissionsBukkit, bPermissions or PermissionsEx.
    Runecraft currently has the following permission nodes:
    runecraft.*                        - gives .teleport and .runes
    runecraft.teleport                 - must be true to allow any teleportation runes
    runecraft.runes                    - gives permission for all runes
    runecraft.runes.powerpick          - gives both .activate and .use
    runecraft.runes.powerpick.activate - gives permission to bind Power Pick rune
    runecraft.runes.powerpick.use      - gives permission to use a rune-enchanted tool
    (Replace 'powerpick' with the name of any other rune)
    'runecraft.teleport' must be given to allow any form of Runecraft teleportation (Teleporter, Personal Teleporter and Recall runes).

    All users have 'runecraft.*' by default. If your permissions plugin doesn't have negative permissions, you have to overwrite the default to disable all runes, and then enable the runes you want with your permissions plugin. To disable all Runecraft permissions by default, open the file plugins/Runecraft/config.yml and change permissions.teleport and permissions.runes to false:
      teleport: false
      runes: false
    Old permissions system (removed in recent versions):
    Show Spoiler

    You can use AttributeProviders to connect the Permissions plugin with Runecraft. You can also connect any other Permissions-like plugin with Runecraft, if there is an AttributeProvider for it.
    Runecraft currently has the following permission nodes:
    • 'runecraft.teleport' - allows or blocks any teleportation (Teleporter, Personal Teleporter and Recall runes)
    • 'runecraft.rune.<name of rune>' - allows use of that rune. 'runecraft.rune.*' allows all runes.
      For example: 'runecraft.rune.phantomtorch', 'runecraft.rune.personalteleporter'.

    You can restrict usage of runes with a permissions system. If your permissions plugin supports different permissions based on world or specific location, you can restrict the usage of runes with it.
    For the teleporter hub, just deny (or blacklist) the teleporter and waypoint rune, after setting them up. If the players have the runecraft.teleport permission, they still can *use* activated teleporters, but cannot activate their own.

    I released version 2.8.3 (for Bukkit only) which adds support for the new blocks in Minecraft 1.8.x.
    There's also support for Bukkit's internal permission system now.

    Version 2.8.1 did work with Minecraft 1.8.1 on Bukkit quite well. The only problem was with crafting runes with some of the newer blocks.

    @Zeerix How about those worlds we create and runecraft would remember even after we delete those worlds. Can we delete this data somehow now?
  5. Offline


    Awesome plugin! currently trying it out xD

    It would be cool if there was an in game way to access all the recipes, like maybe a craftable 'magic book' one can use to scroll through all possible recipes?

    I ask because I tried out this mod for the teleportation ability initially, I chose this over the other teleporting mods because this seemed much more immersive, instead of having to access chat to "type" in odd commands, you actually build the teleporter- which makes much more sense and is far better in my eyes. The only problem in I have to tab out constantly to refer to the wiki page, so a recipe book for this mod would be awesome in my case. Also my friend has hard time running minecraft as is, so she usually shuts everything including the browser to preserve memory.

    Ok... When i make a tele and use it it says Teleporter Accepted Such a destination has not been opened...
    I know it works because compas rune works and the code bloacks are the same help...
  7. Offline


    Not yet.

    I don't know how to do that so that it works in both Vanilla and Bukkit. Also, I can't add GUI elements (in game windows) without a client mod.
    How about printing the wiki page?

    Pictures please!

    There is cobblestone missing in the center of the waypoint, so you have destroyed the waypoint or never activated it. Set a cobblestone and activate the waypoint again with a rightclick with a tool in your hand at that block.
    After that the teleporter-rune should work as expected.

    Exactly. But you don't need a tool in your hand.

    Hmm before I was using permission system on my server runecraft worked, Now it isn't... I've put PermissionsEx and it stopped working... Help? (it stills load just fine from console D:

    Check the "Bukkit's Permissions" section of the first post.

    The problem is I don't have bukkit permissions. I've disabled them because
    1) I don't know how to use them.
    2) Some plugins instead of using normal permissions, the ones in PermissionsEx just used SuperPerms and one big junk came out of it with nothing working since my server doesn't have that kind of thing...
  14. Offline


    How did you disable them? They are in PermissionsEx.

    Anyway, it should work because all Runecraft permissions default to "true". Unless you explicitly set them to "false" via a permissions plugin.
    What's the message you get when you use a rune?

    No massage at all :/ Player tried to make a teleporter, he set a waypoint just fine, but no massage at teleporter... I would need to check later if the teleporters that already are in place work or not. Other admin confirmed that they are not working at all.

    My permission file in folder PermissionsEx (where the confing of permissionsEx is as well)

    Looks like this (without the users):
            default: true
                rank: '1000'
            prefix: '&8[Guest]&7'
            suffix: '&f'
            inheritance: Guest
            default: false
            - runecraft.*
            - modifyworld.*
            - lwc.protect
                rank: '900'
            - runecraft.*
            - '*'
            - catacombs.admin
                rank: '0'
            prefix: '&4[&fOP&4]&2'
            suffix: '&e'
    I've put those - runecraft.* there yesterday, though it would work.

    My PermissionsEx config look like this:

                file: permissions.yml
        backend: file
            disable-unmatched: false
            enable: false
            matched-permissions: true
            debug: false
            raw-permissions: true
        createUserRecords: false
        allowOps: true
        debug: false
        basedir: plugins/PermissionsEx
    You asked how I've disabled superperms?
            enable: false
    Btw. I'm new to permission, just until recently I didn't get them at all... I've needed to learn them because I want money on my server :/ If it wasn't for it I would have just stayed with OP system. (I mean we still use OP system even through permissions are On ^^)

    I have no idea how to do so ^^

    Runecraft ware working -> I've put permissions -> Runecraft stopped working, that's how it went D:

    Did you check the server log file?
    If you don't get a message for a rune, then Runecraft isn't loaded.

    I'm gonna ask someone in upcoming days to make some runes, or gonna make them myself to check it again since in console Runecraft is loaded and some runes are working... I'm completely confused atm... It just looks like it works once, then it don't the other time around :confused: Maybe it all is just one big inception and mystification and god who whatever again... I'm gonna run that check on runes again when there will be some free time and let you know since I'm confused already myself as well...

    Players have been enchanting rune weapons in creative, and bringing them over to survival.

    Please make enchants world-specific.
  19. Offline


    Use your Permissions plugin to disable rune usage in survival world.

    Or do you mean separate enchantments per world? That would be quite a change to the system.

    Does runecraft work with latest bukkit build(1317)?

    There'll be another version soon when Llama releases it. I'll update the topic then.
  22. Offline


    Ok thanks.
  23. Offline


    Very much so enjoy the plugin (I am not new to bukkit just a new account^^)

    Few things I wanted to ask about;

    1. Are you creating, or planning to create any type of config.yml? This plugin would greatly benefit with this addition. I understand the work load this is calling for but 1 weekend of lovely configuration and scripting should be sufficient :D

    2.As a possibility runes that change the geographic nature of the world, should have a toggle which would allow for a revert to the original landscape. Say I was using the mineshaft rune(which I could think of a billion uses for) after I caste the rune, say 15 seconds goes by and boom it reverts back to its original state before the rune was built(Or used, runes not automatically used when made would render that idea impossible, However to prevent someone from using it over and over~ the tier items[those not counted as "air/blank"] would be consumed).

    Reason for this: My server is highly quest oriented, and I need quest functions to replay the same roles for new players, or each player that attempts the quest without admin attention. Runes would GREATLY benefit my server with those two simple additions. (Take a look at explosion revert, I'm sure you could derive enough information from that plugin to do what I ask here. Don't worry if that idea however is not appealing, I get it)

    Things like this that add flexibility to a plugin take it from being a good/great to an out and upstanding work that bukkit should be proud to host under their name. However just a suggestion, and feedback is kindly accepted ^^

    Hi, just a quick question.

    I'm currently trying to configure runes off by default with only certain ones being available to certain groups. I am using group manager to do this. I know how to enable runes for certain groups but not how to turn them off in the first place! Bukkit seems to have them on as a default thing.
  26. Offline


    In PermissionsBukkit and permissions.yml, it would be:
    runecraft.runes: false
    In bPermissions, it would be
    - '-runecraft.runes'
    I don't know how GroupManager does it and if it supports negative superperms.
  27. Offline


    Thank you! Using the same syntax as bPermissions worked fine (no 's though).
  28. Offline


    What do you want to config? More than what you already can via disabled-runes.txt?

    Indeed I am thinking about adding such a config file. The problem is that the vanilla server has no access to YAML, so I have to find an alternative way for vanilla.

    That is a nice idea, but so much work.

    Not yet. I need more information from you about this.
    How do you create those worlds? Do you use a plugin which instantiates a dungeon world for a group of players?
    What's your concern about the remembered worlds?

    I released version 2.9.3 for Bukkit with a new rune: Spleef Blocks
    The template is similar to Phase Blocks, except that it's snow blocks instead of iron ore.
    There are some more bugfixes and changes; please check the change log about it.

    How can I prevent the teleporters are being deleted after a server restart? Or is this just a bug?

    Is there a solution for this? Got no error messages. All runes are loaded after the restart but they just don't work any more.
