    ItemScanner - chests that collect items and power redstone
    version: 1.1

    This plugin allows you to create scanner chests that collect items next to them in a 2 block radius. The chests only collect items that are the same as those already in the chest. If the chest collects a item, it will toggle any lever next to it.

    • Scanning chests collect items near them.
    • Only except items that are already in the item scanner.
    • Toggle levers next to them when they collect a item.
    • /scanner create to make a chest a item scanner.
    • /scanner remove to make a item scanner a normal chest again.
    • /scanner amount to set the amount needed IN ONE DROP to trigger the scanner.
    • /scanner delay to set the delay between scans.
    • /scanner signalLength to set the length of the lever pulse.

    /scanner: brings up scanner commands help.
    /scanner create: allows you to make a chest a scanner.
    /scanner remove: makes a chest you select no longer a scanner.
    /scanner amount [amount]: allows you to change the amount of a item needed to trigger the scanner(zero equals none amount effected).
    /scanner delay [delay]: allows you to set the delay between scans of a scanner.
    /scanner signalLength [length]: allows you to set the length of the lever pulse of a scanner. (note that the signal length will always be shorter than the delay)


    version 1.1:
    • re-coded entire plugin.
    • fixed:
    • tons of bugs known and unknown.
    • added:
    • scanner's amount need IN ONE DROP now configurable.
    • scanner's delay between scans now configurable.
    • scanner's lever pulse time now configurable.
    • removed:
    • levers on side of scanners (caused to many glitches).
    • redstone on top of scanners (caused to many glitches).
    • Other:
    • untested, but assumed that it is faster than 1.0.
    • scanners no longer absorb items when they are almost full.
    version 1.0:
    • plugin released!
    To Do List:
    • Ability to customize lever pulse time.
    • Can set scanning delay time.
    • Add absorption effect.
    • Double Chests.
    • Server can set scanning time to prevent lag.
    • Do not absorb when full.
    • Multi world support.
    • Permissions.
    If you find any errors/bugs please tell me, and post your error that showed up in server console.

    I miss the feature that the chest make a signal when full. My idea is to just put a Note block underneath which makes a frequently beep. And that it can make pulse at the same frequency as the note block, so you can extend the pulse with redstone to a light or something. Would also be great to get the opportunity to set how many it has to be in the chest before it beeps. If you set the alarm to 10, and the chest collected the 10 the note block makes the sound and the redstone torch flashes at the same time ;) Just some ideas which I think could be VERY helpful! Thanks for a so far good plugin, works excellent with my sugar cane and melon farm's :)

    Can you make dispenser support?
    and the lever powering can be replaced by a item button.

    Can you add suport for different block sub ids for example wool 35:2 and 35:6 at the moment if you put 35:2 in the chest and the chuck 35:6 the lever will activate.

    I hope there are some upcoming updates, cause when I put it on my local test server, whenever I leave and enter the server, if I throw an item at the chest that it picks up, the lever gets stuck On.

    So I have to use the scanner remove command and then scanner create again just to fix it.

    I love the function of it though, I want to use it to make quests.

    first thank you for the update!

    does not yet correct. items are acknowledged but not included in the chest. redstone signal is not sent correctly.

    tested on bukkit 1.4.2-R0.1 (2446) & 1.4.2-R0.2 (2448)
    without plugins
