      • Gates
      • Elevators
      • Cauldrons

      • Readable bookshelves
      • Toggle areas (advanced toggle doors and bridges)
      • Hidden switches
      • Custom block drops
      • Apple tree drops
      • Bookshelf drops
      • MORE!
    • Redstone
      • Integrated circuits
      • Programmable logic chips
      • Redstone pumpkins
      • Redstone netherstone
      • Ammeter
      • MORE!
    • Minecart features
      • Booster blocks
      • Brake blocks
      • Reverse blocks
      • Ejector blocks

      • Sort blocks
      • Message announcer block
      • Minecart dispensers
      • Change minecart behavior

    Ey man why players cannot use elevators?
  7. Offline


    because you need to give them permissions:
    • craftbook.mech.elevator - Allows creation of elevator signs
    • craftbook.mech.elevator.use - Allows use of elevator signs

    Ok I'm having a bit of a problem. My players have the permission to use the bridges but they can't use it. It says they don't have the permission to use it. put in the permission group file they have the permission

            default: true
                prefix: ''
                build: true
                - 'factions.participate'
                - 'factions.create'
                - 'factions.viewAnyPower'
                - 'ChestShop.shop.buy'
                - 'ChestShop.shop.sell'
                - 'craftbook.mech.bridge'
                - 'craftbook.mech.bookshelf.use'
                - 'craftbook.mech.elevator.use'
                - 'craftbook.mech.bridge'
    That is my permission file. Why can't they use bridges or Gates?

    OK, which "NEW PERMISSIONS" plugin "DOES" work with this plugin?
  11. Offline


    Pretty sure it works with all of them if you use a dev version of worldedit. It certainly works with pex and any superperms plugin at any rate.

    We run worldedit, worldguard, essentialsl, and this, just looking over making the switch to PEX.

    At this time, is it better to use craftbook, or falsebook? It seems like falsebook has more stuff working.

    does it work on 1.7.3 ?
    it dont run on my server
  15. Offline


    Any news on the permissions fix? As all members of the server I am admin on can create signs such as item dispenser and mob spawners...
    Does any permission plugin work with the new version of Craftbook?
  16. Offline


    Is there a bug with permissions nodes for craftbook circuits & bukkit/super perms? I am unable to grant wildcard "*" or "allic" permissions to my users. I have tried various permutations. However, when I itemize MCXXX permissions, it works. I'd rather use a wildcard or allic perm. Any suggestions?

    @sk89q any news when craftbook will support again the full functionality it did have before?

    I don't mind all the minecart, gates, bridges, cauldron stuff as there are a lot of other plugins doing those things.. the redstone stuff is still limited to craftbook and falsebook and it looks like BOTH are dead.

    I just looked at your http://build.sk89q.com/job/CraftBook/changes page and there have been almost no changes since end of june.

    You stated you don't have time anymore, perhaps it is better to officially hand of to somebody who will take it over.

    I would highly welcome an official statement about what the state of this plugin is.
    Flaminglynx and Bios Element like this.

    I don't do much modding for MC anymore (and until 1.8 hadn't played MC for 2 months), so it's definitely not going anywhere soon. My other plugins have people who are willing to help out, but no one has been interested in CraftBook. The old code was an absolute nightmare to maintain but it was really easy for anyone to pick up. The new code is really easy to maintain but it scares most programmers off. Anyone who is interested in working on CraftBook quickly gives up.

    But I still use CraftBook on my server. Everything that we care enough about works, and with that in mind, I keep CraftBook sufficiently up to date so that it's usable. I don't add features however, and if I do, it's never in release state. The cycle of update coincides with the cycle of updating for my server, which is fairly rare (I don't update to RBs -- I update whenever it's fitting for me). So that's the official status.

    Thanks for that information, I can understand it.
    I think it would be more easy to just focus on the RedStone IC part as almost all other parts are already been duplicated in one way or the other from other plugins.

    Unfortunatly it looks like falsebook the only other plugin to have "small" redstone ICs is also dead, but without the source code even.

    Would you mind if I try to find somebody who would take over Craftbook IC part? Are there any dependencies?
  20. Offline


    Many of the other parts have been obsoleted by new features in Minecraft (pistons, fence gates, etc.) too and even we don't use them anymore. They were great back then to put us through the "dark times." FalseBook is directly based off of the old branch of CraftBook code. We use CraftBook pretty much only for ICs now.

    You're free to find someone to maintain the IC part. There's still some activity with CraftBook occasionally. Lately someone has been finishing up the features actually, though I don't know his current progress. All the dependencies should be handled by Maven, the build system CraftBook uses. The IRC channel for discussing with other devs that work on my plugins is #sk-dev on Espernet, though be aware of wiz -- he is an angry man.

    thanks... I will look into it... I agree... we had craftbook before bukkit... than we needed a long time migrating and finally went with falsebook and minecart mania.. (we never switched over really) as the updates just kept coming.. we now ditched the old stuff and I redid the full server, almost replacing 50% of the plugins as the developers went "awol".. most notable elevators :(

    But the IC stuff was always the greatest for the freaks among us... I hope I can get that pushed further again..

    I am wondering since craftbook apparently has readable books, I run plugins Bookit and Bookworm(plugin for bookit) on my server, what will I have to change around in craftbook to make these compatible with each other?

    Also, when you're referring to needing the developmental version in your description, are you referring to craftbook itself, or needing a developmental version of worldedit?
  23. Can you just read two posts above please?
  24. Offline


    Ok... There's nothing relating to my question about bookit exactly 2 posts above, but a little above that shows a permissions for it, so pretty much I just avoid this permissions to avoid the conflict between the 2 mods?

    As for my other question right below the bookit question, I pretty much got it, dev version is craftbook.

    dose it work for 1.8.1
  26. Offline


    Aren´t there permission notes? Cause without Admin rank , the players can´t use gate etc ....
  27. Offline


    So is the conflict with bookit the permissions nodes or not? Does craftbook even work conflictless with bookit?

    I've been a supporter of CraftBook but as you said it isn't being maintained. They are the same thing just Falsebook has IC's, doors and a few other things
