    VirtualChest (aka GiftPost) - New way to play with minecraft's inventory :
    Version: v5.6.1

    Require Bukkit CB 1337 MIN

    First of all, what's a VirtualChest ?

    A Virtual Chest is a chest that can't be accessed in the "physical world of minecraft" there is no block, nothing. It's mean that you are the only one who can use it, impossible to stole the content, and unlike your player's inventory, no loss when dying.

    You can access whenever you want just by taping a command or using the "magical wand". Like in the game there is 2 types of chest, Large and Normal.

    You can use a virtual chest as an "envelope" to send a package of items to an other player's virtual chest.

    One is never enough then you can buy more Virtual Chest (by default the limit is 10), set the default chest to be opened with the "magical wand", used for send and receive gift.

    • Every player have he's chest (depending on Permissions)
    • And can buy other if he want
    • You can send the content of your chest to a Friend
    • Offline mode works (depending on what you put in the config file)
    • Autogenerated config file at first launch.
    • AutoSaver to not lose your's items
    • 2 type of chest, Large and Normal (like in the game)
    • Normal type is upgradeable ingame
    • Max-Range configurable.
    • Work with any items like coloured Wool, Dye etc ...
    • You can set a sign to avoid your player to use there chest everywhere
    • Support for All Economy Plugins with Vault.
    • Support MultiWorld !
    • Support for mcMMO !
    • Support Essentials Reload Command
    IMPORTANT :If you use an Economy plugin you NEED THE VAULT API (Plugin).

    How to set the max chests limit and default chest Type with Permissions (open)

    Example on Group Admin :
    As you can see you must add
                    maxchests: 2
                    chestType : 'normal'
    in the info node
            default: false
                prefix: ''
                suffix: ''
                build: true
                    maxchests: 2
                    chestType : 'normal'
                - '*'
    Example on User
    Here you must add
                    maxchests: 5
                    chestType : 'normal'
    in the user Node (here Balor)
            - Admins
            permissions: []
                    maxchests: 5
                    chestType : 'normal'
    The override works like that : /gp lim Command > User Permissions Variable > Group Permissions Variable > Plugin Config File

    Of course if you set the variable for the group, every user of that group will have that variable.

    How to configure Signs Chest Commands (open)

    1. You must have the permission giftpost.admin.sign if you don't have it this will happen when you'll try to create the sign
    2. create a sign with first line : [Chest Keeper] to use it to open the default chest, [Buy Chest] to buy a chest (see config file and Spoiler about setting the default type with Permissions) and [Up Chest] to upgrade the chest.
    3. When done just use the right click to open the default chest

    Configuration file (open)

    #using or not the max range
    use-max-range: 'true'

    #the max range in block
    max-range: 100

    #allow or not the offline mode (sending a gift to an offline player)
    allow-offline: 'true'

    #Activate or disable the MOTD

    #Allow user to use the "wand" to open their default chest
    use-wand: 'true'

    #Id of the item to be used as "wand" by default it's the chest
    wand-item-id: 54

    #Maximum of chest a player can have
    max-number-chest: 10

    #Every X min the AutoSaver will save the content of the chests
    auto-save-time: 10

    #Check if the two player are in the same world when trying to send a "gift"
    world-check: 'true'

    #Activate or not iConomy for the plugin
    iConomy: 'true'

    #Price for sending a gift (in game it's display price for the post) if iConomy activated
    iConomy-send-price: 1.0

    #Price for opening the chest if iConomy activated
    iConomy-openchest-price: 1.0

    #Price of a normalChest
    iConomy-normalChest-price: 10.0

    #Price of a largeChest
    iConomy-largeChest-price: 20.0

    #When opening a chest, auto-stack same items together.
    auto-stack: 'true'

    #When opening a chest, sort it by item ID.
    auto-sort: 'true'

    #The users can only buy NORMAL chest.
    only-normal: 'false'

    #The users can only use the sign to open and buy a chest.
    only-sign: 'false'

    #By default the command buy (and the sign) will buy this type of chest (can be overrided in the Permissions file, see below).
    chest-default: normal

    #If set to true, when the player die, every item he have in his chests are dropped on the ground (like the normal inventory)
    drop-on-death: 'false'

    #If set to true, avoid using SuperPerm Bridge, to use only the Official Super Perm
    forceOfficialBukkitPerm: false

    Todo (open)

    1. Add support for an Economy
    2. Support mcMMO
    3. Add the possibility to lose what we have in the chest when we die
    4. Restrict chest to a location/sign

    This is a really nice plug-in :D
    I use it in my server in combination with NoDrop, because we had a lot of theft in the server, hopefully this will prevent it in the future.
    Maybe you could make a feature, that the chest opens with a 'wand' (i.e. a chest) instead with a command.

    Good job. Like it, especially with iConomy (like wanna more space? Don't want to lose your stuff? Friends are beggars? Pay!)

    About ideas: is it possible to create "party" virtual chest? Party mechanics is already in mcMMO (and it's freaking good, like party itself, party chat, tp to party member etc).
    You need to pay to create it (for ex. 10 coins), and all in your party can access it - place items, take them (the price to open is the same as for single virtualchest). Once party is closed, partychest and all items in it are destroyed.
  9. Offline


    @Unset : I can do that I'll look how to catch the item in hand and his action :)

    @MJRamon : I like the idea. I have 2 choice doing my own party part for chest, or look into the code (uncommented :() of mcMMO to understand how I can add a chest to a party ...

    For the party I see something like a PartyName, player can join a partyName and share the same VirtualChest.
    There'll be 2 price one for a normal chest, and one for the large (configurable in the conf.yml).
    You can send the content of the chest to an another party.

    I see command like :
    /gp party PartyName to create it
    /gp join PartyName
    /gp quit for Player to quit it.
    /gp close for the "Master" to close it.

    I think it's better to be independent of mcMMO because if he change the may of the party works, I'll not have to do it.

    Oh and I had a concern about the price for the send. I can make it dynamic, you set the price for sending 1 item, and depending the number of items the amount is multiplied by whatYouWant (exemple 0.9 to make it degrease) .

    What do you think ?
  10. Offline


    If you'll make own party functionallity, can you add some more functions to it, as in mcMMO? Cause I'm using it, and if I will have to disable it, I don't want to lose such commands, as:

    invite a player to party
    accept an invitation
    party chat (like /partychat on and /partychat off)
    Teleport to party member

    About the price - it's good to make like this:


    So we can true/false paying wuth multiplier
  11. Offline


    Okaaay Changed a lot of thing ...

    First and more important, now we can have more than 1 virtual chest.
    Now by default you don't have a chest, you must buy it and name it.

    (I create a save importer completely transparent that will transform the old save without anything to do, the chest will have the name of the player)

    You can select a Default chest that you'll use for send, receive and open with the wand (use a chest with the left click)

    @Unset : added a wand like you asked for the Default Chest : just use a chest with the left clic
    More to come

    Hi Balor,

    just a note. If you just add VirtualChest.jar to your plugins folder and start the server it will throw an nullPointerException. I could use the /gp commands ingame anyways so it seems that is only a first time startup thingy. After first startup i tried /reload and another error was given but when you restart the server again no error is logged.

    Essentials is using /reload i think

    Thanks @lycano it's now corrected.

    I forgot to test after a clean install ... I did so much modification.

    I'm working on a support for mcMMO with the developer and in a couple of day it'll be here.

    Hehe =) Sometimes i've forgotten that too after finished some projects ;) I appreciate the work of the community here it is pure awesomeness what some ppl spit out of their heads =) Must be very time consuming but i think its worth it ^^

    Btw: I did notice that the help File is nameing itself "Gift Post" (/gp help) maybe you want to correct that in future but i think you'll do a complete overlook anyhow when you release the next version ^^

    I love the idea of this plugin.
    But is there any way to make it so players can only access their chests in certain areas?
    For example: when a player clicks a sign, in the bank it opens their virtual chest.
    This chest would also be exactly the same (for that player) in any other bank in the world.

    @MJRamon : with the help of the mcMMO developer, I added your idea :)
    Now each party can buy a chest and share it with all the party's member

    @Ed. : mmmh I'll see what I can do

    Version 3.2.1
    Major bug fix
    Corrected a bug with the command upgrade, when the server is restarted the upgrade was lost.

    Thank you so much.
    I did try using your plugin in conjunction with commandsigns.
    Unfortunatly to prevent people from using the chest on the fly,
    When they click the sign to open thier chest it opens the chest of the imaginary user: /commandsigns.

    I have a idea for the plugin instead of making a cap for the server can you change the config so i can change the cap of the # of chests they can have per player?

    I just implemented your idea as you can see, I made a little How to to explain how it's works

    Done too, command /gp limit (see first post for more informations)

    Changed ONE of the permissions have a "child" now : giftpost.chest.everywhere -> this command allow the player to open their chest whenever and where they want ! without this perm, the command /gp c DON'T WORK !

    Hey, I just found your mod through a link on the mcMMO post and I just installed it and it works very nicely! I have Permissions 2.6, iConomy 4.6.5, and mcMMO 0.9.27 (all under Bukkit RB 670) and things seem to work well so far :) (I haven't done extensive testing and, for example, I haven't tested the party chests, but so far things seem to be working.)

    Is it possible to set a toggle to disable the note that says "[Chest Keeper] 1.0 Coin used to pay the Chests Keeper" that pops up when you open your virtual chest? I am currently planning to just set that fee to 0 coins (and, to compensate, make the initial price for a chest fairly expensive) so it just seems confusing to have it tell you that it cost you 0 coins to open :p

    Oups xD I forgot to disable the message when the cost = 0. I'll change that.

    Now if the cost = 0, no message is displayed :)

    Thank you very much for your speedy reply! I just installed 3.3.1 on my server and I can confirm that I have set the open fee to 0 coins and when I type /gp c it no longer pops up a message :D Thank you so much for fixing this so quickly!

    First, thanks so much for this great plugin! I've read enough plugin threads to know that people don't say "Thank you!" nearly enough to plugin developers!

    Second, I'm not much of a programmer but I want to do what I can do to help. I'm decent as a documenter so I offer my services as such :) With this in mind, two things 1) Would you like any tutorial videos made for your plugin? I have FRAPS and a decent computer so I wouldn't mind making some sort of tutorial video for this plugin if you want :) Just quote part of this message or send me a PM or something if you do! 2) I'd like to share the configuration of my working server to help answer others' questions.

    I have several plug ins, including this one, up and running and (so far as I can tell) they are all getting along and working. I know when I go looking for new plugins I'm always curious if somehow the new plugin will 'break' my current plugins so I'm posting this info for each of the plugins that I use. People always post in a plugin's thread when things don't work so I want to post something that does work for comparisson :)

    Basically, I just want people to know that yes, you can run this plugin and all these other ones without breaking the world.

    Pastebin of VirtualChest config.yml:

    Current Bukkit Version: 670

    Plug Ins

    CommandBook 1.2.1
    HeroChat 4.10.1
    iConomy 4.6.5
    LocalShops 2.2.1
    mcMMO 0.9.27
    Permissions 2.6
    PreciousStones 3.2
    Runecraft 2.5.1
    Towny v61Fuzzev5_CB670 (semi-officially forked version) (Note the semi-official fork now has a semi-official bukkit thread here.)
    VirtualChest aka GiftPost 3.3.1
    WorldEdit 4.3

    Pastebin of server.log on restarting the server:

    Pastebin of my Permissions file (since I currently only have one world and that world is called PhoenixRealms, the file is called PhoenixRealms.yml):

    That's could be wonderful, it's the only thing that's missing , a tutorial video to explain how my plugin works :)

    If you do so, I'll add it !

    Quick question - where and how does your plugin store the information of who has what chests and what's in them? I ask because I'm having some issues with updating iConomy so I deleted the whole iConomy folder (to let it rebuild that folder) and that seems to have taken away all my virtual chests. Since I only installed this a couple days ago and I'd just been testing it out with another player on my server, this isn't too big of a deal but I cannot afford to have something like this happen latter! It just seems strange to me that taking out the iConomy folder would effect VirtualChest. Any ideas?

    That's non sense Oo
    VirtualChest use his own folder (/plugins/VirtualChest) to store chests,users, parties informations.

    You can see there couple of file (chests.dat, parties.dat (optional), config.yml) and 2 other directory Players and Parties(optinal)

    The only use that VirtualChest do of iConomy is when you buy/upgrade a chest, else it never interact with.

    OK good, it seems to just have been a temporary glitch - perhaps when I restarted my server and iConomy was acting up VirtualChest tried to connect with it and failed, erroring out? I'm not sure just what happened, but I just logged in and my chests are there and the items are there :) Some sort of strange stuff going on, but I don't think it is VirtualChest related :)

    I am going to try to make a tutorial video for this plugin later today (PDT GMT -7.) I'll post it to YouTube and then put the link in this thread :)

    EDIT: The video is up :)

    @Qanthelas : well maybe that bug can happen just after a restart when the world is not loaded.
    Thanks for the video, I add it now.

    No worries, it seems to be working now and thanks for putting the video up :) Just so you know, I just finished adding a captions track to the video (so if you watch it in YouTube and click the little CC button it will show the text of what I'm saying at the bottom of the video.) It looks like (at least for now) the embedded player doesn't have the CC button on it, so you'd have to actually open the video up in YouTube. I figured that since this plugin seems to be used by people around the world (and thus people who speak English as a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th language!) that it might be useful to have the text there. It also might be helpful for people who can't understand what I'm saying sometimes :p I'm very new to making YouTube caption tracks (that was my first one) so sorry if I messed it up a bit :p

    (Note, to make the captions track, I downloaded the "English: Machine Transcription" .sbv file that YouTube generated and edited it with Notepad++ to change the text out - it was way off in a lot of spots but at least it got the timing part down so I didn't have to mess with that!)
