    SphereWorld - Creates a World of Spheres:
    Version: v0.5

    You need another Challenge on your Server..
    SphereWorld makes it. You will start planting Trees, just to get the Material needed to reach the next Spheres ;-)

    NOTE: Ice spread around on the Floor still makes the Map nearly unplayable in 1.6..

    • Creates a unique World of Spheres
    • Can be run as default or any world of a Multiworldserver
    • Pot Worlds
    • Seeds for World and for Spheres
    • Random Type (Pot / Sphere)
    • GlowStoneRings
    • OtherWorld
    • Protection for the Glass. PotProtection < 65 / SphereProtection = all (Op can still destroy the Glass)
    • Added Protection to Floor
    • Change Initial Generation
    • Water / No-Water on Floor (icebug)
    • No Spawn on Floor
    • Added some Grass / Longgrass to Otherworld
    • ....

    Download the Jar into your plugins Directory,
    Adjust config if you want or just restart the Server

    Config (open)

    The Config-File:
    usefloor: true
    worldsize: 2000
    mindist: 80
    useglass: false
    maxradius: 40
    spherechance: 100

    sphereprotect: true
    floorprotect: true
    nofloorspawn: true
    nowater: true
    autosavechunklist: true
    autosaveinterval: 30
    Explain of the Config:
    usefloor -> Creates a Floor of a Bedrock and a Watertile if set to true
    NOTE: usefloor: false will give you some Error: Floor is missing, with most Teleport plugins etc.
    NOTE: only set it to false, if you use this as the only World on your Server!!
    worldsize -> set the Size, the Spheres will Spawn on each Side of the 0,0 Point.
    NOTE: A worldsize of 2000 Gives you around 1500 Spheres.
    mindist -> Minimum distance between to Sphere-Centerpoints.
    NOTE: Make sure, they to not intercept each other mindist should by > maxradius * 2
    useglass -> Will the Spheres be surrounded by Glass?
    NOTE: True is a good joice here, else there will be lot of water and lava floating..
    maxradius -> Maximum Radius of a Sphere.
    NOTE: should be < minheight + 2 and < 128-maxheight
    minradius -> Minimum Radius of a Sphere.
    minheight -> Minimum Height of a Spherecenter
    NOTE: should be >= maxradius + 2
    maxheight -> Maximum height of Spherecenter
    NOTE: should be < 128-maxheight
    world -> The Name the Spherewold will have. (The plugin creates a World with that name)
    NOTE: Initial the World should not exist. It should not be entered.
    killonfloor -> Kill players that are on the waterlevel (out of Universe)
    usehalfglass -> Only use Glass up to see level. No Glass on Uppersides
    NOTE: set useglass to false, for this to work, if you want half glass Spheres.
    userandomglass ->Random use Full Spheres or Pots
    NOTE: set useglass and usehalfglass to false, for this to work, if you want random glass Spheres.
    worldseed -> seed of the world (only numbers)
    sphereseed -> seed of the spheres (only numbers)
    otherworld -> Generates another World.. Very Strange (Nothing todo with Spheres)
    NOTE: all the Glass and Distance Things have no influence on otherworld
    useglow -> If set to true, the Spheres get some GlowBlock Rings.
    glassblock -> set the Type of Glass you wanna use.
    NOTE: Makes only sence, if you use it with usehalfglass.
    potprotect -> Protects all Glass from Sphere below Block 65 (Seelevel)
    sphereprotect -> Protects all Glass from the Spheres. (Op can Destroy only)
    floorprotect -> Protect the Floor from being Build on..
    nowater -> Genereate no Water on the Bedrock (reduce Ice problem)
    nofloorspawn -> Dont Spawn monsters at Bedrock Level
    autosavechunklist -> Enable this to Autosave the chunklist
    NOTE: if the Server does not shut down correctly, unsaved chunks will be regenerated
    autosaveinterval -> Minutes between autosaves

    Try the Defaults first, as they should work out of the Box.

    To Start over:
    1.) Stop the Server
    2.) Delete the Worldfolder "sphere"
    3.) Delete Files plugin/SphereWorld/*.data
    4.) Start the Server again.
    5.) After Startup is Finished, you can port to the World. example: /world sphere

    • /cr
      Regenerates the Chunk you are staying on (OP only)
    • /sphere
      Gives you information about the Sphere you are in (Everyone)

    • Add Bridges between Spheres.
    • Add / Remove Floor on the fly (force reload of all loaded Chunks)
    • Configurable Blocks for level 1 and 2
    • Add Underwater Version of the Spheres.. (We may need some more Light with this ;-P

    I use a plugin to change worlds on my server.... and i just got this plugin last night and when i try to tele there the world doesnt generate in time and i fall to the bedrock.... killing my :/
    is there any way of fixing this??

    Thomas Bucher

    It seems you tele on a Position where there is no Land. You can try the following:
    1.) use magiccarpet when you port
    2.) set a spawnpoint, somewhere where it is safe
    3.) or make a portal, people can use to get on a sphere.

    Sincerely Thomas

    How do they warp?
    You should think of placing a portal or a gate.

    I have a problem with SphereWorld. This plugin sounds great and I would really like to make it work.
    I use the latest version of bukkit (818) and WorldWarp 0.2 to teleport between worlds.

    Before teleporting myself into the sphere world, I render it with dynmap and it is perfect.
    But once I enter it, some parts are not included in the spheres...

    Just curious if you have any plans to be able to give the world a different name than just sphere?

    EDIT: Disregard found the setting.

    This is like risigums (bad spelling) bio sphere mod exept this is better because it adds stuff and is multiplayer

    If you restart the server after a new Spawnpoint has been set, the server sometimes preparse the startarea new.
    preparing startarea 57% ...
    Do the following:
    1.) Stop the Server
    2.) Delete from plugins/SphereWorld
    3.) Start the Server
    NOTE: All changes will be gone on the World.
    Sincerely Thomas
    PS: If there are not many "Bad" chunks, you can stay on the top of them and write /cr

    Thee is no "Error"

    You log in and get on a normal world? -> change level-name in to sphere

    While playing with this mod I had a few thoughts and questions.

    Is there any way to have more then one world?
    I tried changing the world name causing a new one to be generated but the old one looks like a normal world when entered.​

    Would it be possible to generate a normal world underneath the spheres?

    I had an idea reguarding sphere creation (I know nothing about the coding so it may not be possable)
    What if you remove [glassblock, usehalfglass, useglass] replaceing them with [topblock, bottomblock]​
    This would allow different material for the top and bottom, also allowing you to disable either or both.​

    setting [topblock:20] & [bottomblock:1] would give you a sphere with a stone bottom and glass finishing it off.​
    setting [topblock:0] [bottomblock:20] would be the equilvant of [glassblock:20], [useglass:false], [halfglass:true]​

    It'd also be neat to remove all glass that "crosses" each other. I tend to build my spheres closer together for a denser effect, but that gives me sphere crossover. I'm cool with the crossover, it's just a pain to remove the overlapping glass.

    Another thought/request, this eats up a lot of ram on my server when I have it running. I know code optimization isn't easy, but that's the only thing keeping me from leaving the plugin enabled.

    Hi Thomas,

    Got it going, thanks for the help. Just got couple of questions please...

    When I log in for the first time I am in "space" and fall forever (until the server
    boots me for flying), is there something ive done wrong??

    Lastly, on your first post you have pictures and the last on says "other world", is
    it SphereWorld that made that world as it looks amazing !!!

    Thanks for a great plugin and for your help Thomas...

    First time loading suxs a bit. Also first time join the server you get spawned just random.

    The Otherworld is the SphereWorld. Works exactly the same way. if you turn otherworld: true in the SphereWorld.yml, the Generator will make the OtherWorld instead of the Spheres..

    ive been using the plugin gor a couple days now and it was working great. however today when i was wondering around i found that a section of one of the spheres has gone read only. you can't destroy blocks or place anything either. a creeper blew a hole in the ground and there is no way out of it if you fall in beacuse you cant manipulate the world in that area. any idea what might cause this? I am using Craftbukkit 819, Multiverse 1.7.2, and WormholeXTreme 0.854 to travel between worlds.

    Maybe its the spawnpoint? I Guess there is a Spawnpointprotection. Try set it to 0 in
    Or just try recreate the chunk by type /cr

    Thanks for this plugin, it is great!

    I'd like to request the multiple worlds thing too. I would like to run a sphere world and an otherworld on the same server.

    Keep up the good work!

    No, doesn't work that way; he'd have to specifically code a cube world for that to work.
