    Please somebody make a video tutorial. Iam able to make the commands on the signs (i got the messages in the console and in the chat), but how do i activate it? Where are the outputs/inputs?

    Weather detector would be AWSOME, then my retractable roofs could open in the sun and close in the rain

    Ahh, yes. Weather detector in 3.3, if not 3.2

    And hofec, I can add a fix for that, but I'm kinda annoyed that the SignChangeEvent is giving me blocks that aren't signs.

    The highlighted line is the one throwing that exception. :mad:

    Could I have a list of the plugins you're running hofec?

    Expect 3.2 and a video tutorial on Wednesday.

    Oh yea ! I'm running quite big plugin library on my official server :D
    Here is the list of plugins .. (pic in spoiler, wanna .txt list too ?)

    I hope that something will help anyway ;)

    Oh dear god I'm not testing all of those. :p

    I'll add a fix for the exception, but ONE of those authors is breaking the SignChangeEvent. Does that always happen, or under a specific circumstance, or what?

    I read this randomly in my server.log a few hours ago .. so one of my players propably used or made some Pailstone IC and this exception appeared..

    so i could test this myself on my testserver, where i'm using same plugins and libs atm

    Bad plug could be FalseBook, TimeAnnounce or MinecartMania .. maybe ? i don't really know :(

    anyway .. i'm goin to test this myself.

    Thank you for some fix. [diamond]

    btw. i could help u with some video tuturial if u wanna want :) right now i have some free time [fire]

    That would be amazing. I'm totally useless when it comes to video.
  16. Really nice that you add this. Some [diamond][diamond][diamond][diamond][diamond][diamond] for your ;)

    And some other question. So you know Falsebook? He have an Player Detector but the Problem on this is that i have to set the range on the sign so its unusfull. My Question i now if you can add a same IC with the function of the glowstone so i can set the rane where i will?:)
  17. Offline


    I'm not entirely sure I understand you.

    The :SENSOR IC will already check a specified cuboid area for players, the cuboid area being set with glowstone dust.
  18. yeah thats true but the player detector is a special ic it look if the player (or group) on the sign is in the area

    here are the sign
    the problem is that i have to set a range on the sign and gemoschen don't answer me as i'm ask him for a better method like your cuboid.
    so now you forward this awesome plugin i can ask you if this is possible to make like cuboid/sensor because then i can set the are or position with the glowstonedust.
  19. Hey Hafnium
    Your Plugin sounds very well, but if i create the sign :recv and :send the redstone doesnt get powered why? Did i somth wrong? What to do that this is working?
    Thx for an reply
  20. Did you make this?

    My guide assumes a familiarity with either old pailstone or another IC plugin like falsebook or craftbook.

    To get output from a sign, you have to place a lever on the opposite side of the block from the sign. The lever gets flipped by pailstone. This is the safest and least laggy way to handle output.

    It's Wednesday.
    No rush or anything.

    Lol, that it is. I guess I could work on pushing a release tonight.

    @Tycho, its 1:13 AM here though. :p

    3.2 as promised. Updates to :cuboid for Alex, weather for Taverne, bug fixes for Ollieboy, Hofec, and DanB.

    Keep the feature requests coming.

    3.3 will focus on optimization. I'm thinking of sticking with a FEATURES -> REFINEMENTS -> OPTIMIZATION dev cycle.

    In other news, the plugin now comes bundled with its source code. To keep an idea of where my codebase is at, I've released it under the Reciprocal Public License.

  25. Oh my god, thank you^^ [diamond][diamond][diamond][diamond][diamond][diamond][diamond]

    Hm i moved today a House with Worldedit to an other place. It has many PailStone IC in it and i can't reset them with the slimeball. Did you delete this nice option?
  26. Offline


    Not delete, I haven't recoded it yet. I started from scratch, you see.

    I've noticed some odd behavior in single input signs when multiple inputs are wired. Investigating... 3.2.1 tonight with a fix, I hope.

    Hey the mod sounds really nice, it will help with compacting the circuitry when we do our combination switches, which requires several 'AND' gates. I can not get it to work though, I have another plugin called Quantum Connector, but I deleted it to see if it was conflicting and nothing changed. Here is the error I got

    01:33:58 [INFO] [PailStone] cravemode created a sign of type LOGIC.
    01:34:04 [INFO] [PailStone] Invalidating sign at -32, 72, 99 with reason:
    Sign was either gone or had different text.

    On the sign, I put



    A message tells me that it successfully created a logic sign. In the log, says otherwise. Am I doing it wrong or anyone know how to fix that? I have updated my bukkit through the server's update system. Host is verygames.

    I should probably make those messages clearer. Placing a sign causes the plugin to scan all of its signs to make sure their block wasn't destroyed. I'll take a look at my code later to be sure.

    Ah, I was on a new map and it was the only sign I had up, if that helps.
  31. Offline


    Yep, that means other signs you had that didn't exist anymore got invalidated
