    Glad to see you have returned. This is the best wireless redstone plugin I have seen so far!

    Is there anyway to convert existing pailstone signs so they work with the new version? I have over 100 signs on my server and want to avoid having to find, delete and create them all.

  4. Offline


    Yay! Very nice! Could you please update GitHub? That would make me very happy. :D
  5. Offline


    I wub you too. :p

    That's in development. I'll probably make right clicking unloaded signs with a pailstone sign ID on the first line load them. Unfortunately, the thing that forced me to do a total rewrite was that I wasn't saving enough information about the signs to load them properly, so an automatic load is out. :(

    Github and I don't get along well. I do intend to reopen the source, and I'm investigating options.

    Can I also suggest a block that will send a message to all players within a specified radius of a block

    :announce 20

    This would send the message to any player within 20 blocks of the sign when it is powered.

    Also can you please bring back the sign colours on the top line and add the :command sign again as I use this quite a lot
  7. Offline


    The colors are more trouble than they are worth. Players get a chat message indicating if the sign is accepted now.

    Realize that each color code takes up two characters.

    Thanks. Any response on the :command sign or my proposed :announce sign?

    Appreciate your help!

  9. Offline


    :command is coming back.

    I've been thinking of doing something like announce. It would probably work the same way as :sensor (formerly :twire) and announce to a cuboid region with the full text of the announcement being set via command before placing the sign. In re-writing, I set up a way to store data for each sign in addition to the displayed text, and this would be a good way to test it.

    This makes me sad. :( I <3 GitHub. What don't you like about it? Too hard to use?

    Anyway, I will appreciate the source either way. ETA?

    Request; multi-directional input like you had before, not restricted to the front. And also it's cool if you wanna be away on IRC when I wanna talk to you, you just do whatever you want Hafnium, feel free to ignore your adording fans, especially the ones that want multi-directional input :p <3
  12. Looks like a cool plugin, but I can't get anything to work :p

    17:45:28 [INFO] [PailStone] Joymo created a sign of type BOLT.
    17:45:28 [INFO] [PailStone] Invalidating sign at 2295, 67, 2189 with reason:
    Sign was either gone or had different text.

    That's what I get in the log, for simply placing a sign with:

    | :BOLT
    | fake

    Nothing else :S

    Had you just removed a sign at that location?
  14. Offline


    I don't mind if you add the colors or not, but could you make it force uppercase again? Like if they do :send, it sets it to :SEND

    I liked that, a lot.
  15. Offline


    Ah, yes, that's certainly doable.

    I have trigger working, ( :command ) and I'm working on an improved system for DISP and ANNOUNCE.

    Expect 3.1 later today.

  16. I tried in various places, no luck :/

    Are you sure the bolt sign doesn't work? There is no check for validation immediately after you place a sign. There is, however, a check for validation of OLD signs just before you place a new one.

    tryin to get this puppy to work, however I get no errors and no function. The console spits out that the sign type is made however when powering the send/recv circut it doesn't seem to work. Also tried the ctime and cuboid just in case it was a certain type of sign >.<

    any ideas would be awsome until then im gonna push this thing to see if I can get it to work ^_^

    Hmmmm...I have no idea how you use the :SEND and :RECV signs and the guide's a bit vague. Could you post some pictures or something? That'd be very helpful.

    EDIT:Never mind, I got it working... I had no idea that you were supposed to slap a lever on the back of the :RECV block. You should add something about that in the guide.
  20. Offline


    Been focusing on features over documentation.

    SEND and RECV are simple.

    Place both signs on the sides of blocks with the same text on lines 2 and 3. Put a lever on the opposite side of the block :RECV is on. Then wire redstone to the front of the SEND sign. Whenever the input to the SEND sign changes, the lever on the RECV sign will change to match.

    Update! 3.1 is out.

    As an added bonus for the :trigger sign, you can specify "&<group>" to make the sign operable only by a certain permissions group or higher!

    3.2 will focus on non-sign features, such as sign reloading and performance.

    And automatic lever placing? :D
  22. The error I pasted happens immediately upon placement.

    Perhaps incompatible with one of the other Sign plugins? I use CommandSigns at least.
  23. Offline


    I can make that optional when I get config up and running.

    Ah, possible. I can test later.

    Edit: Deleting posts makes me look like a double poster. :p

    If you somehow got Permissions into this, it would be amazing. Well' more amazing than it already is.

    I was thinking just a node that let's you create the different IC signs...
  25. Offline


    That's already there. Look in the guide, it lists the Permissions nodes.
  26. Offline


    I'll be going further in depth with some nodes as well. One node for display signs, but another for display signs to other people, nodes for maximum areas with cuboid signs, etc.

    Oh, sorry. I didn't see that there, I must be going blind...:p

    So, Hafnium, could you include the source in the JAR again? I don't trust decompiling at doing it all perfectly. I'd love to see how the new PailStone works.
  29. Offline


    Wow i cant get any of this to work the guide is confusing can somone post an easier tutorial or a video cuz it keeps spewing out could not change sign or somthing as a server error

    me too how did u fix it

    Holy crap, what version of pailstone are you all running? That is NOT what I released. I haven't used that package name since before version 2.

    Hi hafnium.

    Just updated my server and I can set my cuboid co-ordinates with id 348 and then type /ps msg test. I then create a sign with just :Announce and it adds the co-ordinates on lines 2 and 3 but I can't seem to then get the announcement to send. I have tried powering redstone on all sides of the block and it still doesn't send.
