[INACTIVE] [SEC/FUN] Gallows v0.13 Hang those heathens! (Tag: Jail) [1337]

Discussion in 'Inactive/Unsupported Plugins' started by kjhf, Aug 19, 2011.

  1. Gallows - Don't like somebody? Why not hang them?
    Requested by @Tomasdasd

    Version: 0.13 BETA
    Disclaimer: This plugin is in beta.
    It still has substantial To Do list and safety features to add. Though it should be fine if you follow the instructions, do not complain to me that the plugin has burnt down your prized Taj Mahal, or destroyed a part of your Opera House, et cetera.

    Further, since no protections are coded yet, don't use on servers which will have people tearing down the Gallows and selling the bits on.

    • Semi-auto generating gallows.
    • Safety feature so the Gallows's generation will not overwrite you or your buildings.
    • Hang players by strapping them to web (string.. geddit?) in the Gallows.
    • Let player take customisable damage on the Gallows, or disable completely.
    • Release when you see fit, or when the player dies (yes you can rehang them if they die >:D )
    • Customisable behaviours on release.
    • Customisable messages.
    • Compatible with Yeti's Permissions and PermissionsBukkit.

    nice but, when i try to hang some1 it says '' cannot hang player''
  3. Have you created a Gallows yet?

    If the message is (player) cannot be hanged, it is because they are exempt (full permissions)
  4. Offline


    yeah i created the gallow, but i still can't hang him....
    and i haven't given him the exempt permission either
  5. Is he opped?

    If not, can you give me the exact message it says ...
  6. Offline


    no he isn't opped, but when i type '' /g hang RedRacket ''
    it says '' RedRacket cannot be hanged! ''
    it's no error msg, simply just that one msg.
  7. That's a permissions exempt error. I've looked at the code and I may have got the exempt perm the wrong way round. Corrected now, please re-download. Thanks for helping :)

    As a request remove permissions support for bukkit permissions/ superperms mainly because everyone needs to change to this permissions and also because it is more lightweight also I don't know if you noticed but Permissions(the plugin of tomorrow) is now inactive so you should remove support for it. All typed on an iPod touch at 2:40 am :)
  9. Offline


    i think it works now, but everyone on my server has logged off now so i didn't get to test it so much...
    but i tried once and it kinda worked.
    i let you know if something comes up

    and don't remove permission support like he said please.....
  10. Offline


    No I simply meant replace your support for bukkits own permission system because it is much simpler to code and more lightweight. and also because the one your supporting is outdated
  11. Support for BukkitPerms has been on my ToDo list for a while. I support permissions because that is the plugin that most people use, including my home server >.>
    Judging by the overall mood on the Permissions thread, few will be leaving it until absolutely necessary.

    I'm definitely not removing Permissions support, even if that is what you meant ;)
  12. Offline


    Well adding both we leave me happy :)
  13. Offline


    Are ops automatically exempted? If so can you make a config setting so they are not :p?
  14. Offline


    Nice new idea for plugin :p
  15. Done! :)

    Done! :)

    Done! Thanks, though it was a request! :)

    you should make it so there is a lever that'll release the trapdoor, and send them to the lava
  17. Offline


    actually, when you place a gallow, you can edit it, and thus make this yourself. but you might want to change the trapdoor to a block with a piston behind it, wired up with the lever. (because you can open the trapdoor without the lever, but thats not as much fun...)

    anyways, Awsome idea. this is way better then a jail.
    bug: always when i hang someone other then myself, the cobweb spawns inside me, and then the person (or as i call them: my victims) is transported to the gallow.
    Few things that i wanted to point out:
    1: i don't really like the fact that the player can get out of the gallow, i would prefer an option to make them unable to move (but still look around if that's possible)
    2:that they spawn inside the cobweb, and not on the corner of it.
  18. Offline


    there is problem i have, when i create a allows there is no web. when i type "/g hang ______ 1"(1 is the name of the gallows) they spawn on the gallows, but instead of them baing caught in the web, im caught in a web that spawns at my feet 2 high. they are on the trapdoor in the gallows, but no web is there. help?
  19. Offline


    The web spawning code is off. It spawns it on the player who types the command and not the player who is put in the gallows.
  20. Offline


    Yeah I got that bug too. The one with the cobweb. However, I've tested the plugin and it's fine, although it's still the Alpha release :) I'm watching those Java tutorials and I've learned a lot. It was different before; If you wanted a ... let's say castle. You had to build your house first and then the castle. Now the Java got the house finished etc.

    Looking forward to make my own plugins, since there is quite a lot not yet implemented in bukkit. And I think gallows is quite awesome, so I was surprised when it was not yet implemented :/
    Then I made this request, and here we are.

    Take a read of:

    Also, you're trying your luck with permissions.yml in your server folder. The plugin supports Yeti Permissions and PermissionsBukkit.

    Cool plugin, but I think I like it more when you have to build your own gallow
  28. 0.07 out. You will need to reinstall your config and messages file. Hanged players and locations should be fine.

    Awesome... I will re-download this later! Thanks for fixing this!

    Oh I am so using this. Thanks for writing it!
