    MeasuringTape - Easy measuring
    Version: 0.9c - Works with 1.2

    MeasuringTape is a tool, that makes you able to simply figure out a distance, an area or even a track. MT uses a string to mark the positions. I once thought it would be just practically to measure how far my cannon shoot, but by now are there a few other purposes, like metering a base area and so on. The track mode can be used to measure the road between two cities. Roadsigns with the exact remaining distance in m look very nice.
    String attaching is deactivatable to avoid conflicts with other plugins also using a string to mark blocks, e.g. WorldEdit.
    MT can use the Permission Plugin but is not depending on it. If Permissions is deaktivated in config or doesn't run at the server MT will use some default right managemant: Measuring ant "/mt tape" are available for all and "/mt tp" only for ops.

    • Easy measuring with different modes:
    • Direct distance, vectors, area, volume, blocks and even track
    • Figure out the level of an area where you have fewest blocks to break/place to flatten it

    it'd be nice if i could disable the /mt tape command, so the users have to get the strings by their own [​IMG]

    You can. Don't give that command to people you don't want to have it :p

    Finally done!
    Did take much more than assumed, mainly due to permissions dev wasn't helpful at all (and the template unable to run)
    Permissions support is optional, so if you don't want it, you don't have to enable it
    Added config entry: "usePermissions : false"
    If this is false, or permissions plugin can't be detected at server start, MT will allow measuring and "/mt tape" for all and reserve "/mt tp" for ops
    Else you now can give 'measuringtape.measure', 'measuringtape.tape' and/or '' to all groups and users you want

    Am I missing something? I downlaoded 0.7 from your website, but it seems to just be source code, or possibly an uncompressed jar or some sort.. Can't find the actual jar plugin anywhere in the zip.

    Try a other browser

    Or rename the to MeasuringTape.jar.
    I don't know, why IE renames .jar to .zip.
    I'll add a note to my website.

    Maybe this is just me, but I haven't had any luck setting the first point on bedrock.

    I'm going to check this
    --- merged: Feb 7, 2011 11:14 AM ---
    You are right: It's impossible atm to set the first point on bedrock and even on any block inside the spawn protection.
    I'll look, what I can do about.
    --- merged: Feb 7, 2011 11:40 AM ---
    Added multiworld support
    (/mt tp would teleport you to the first world)

    Removed TSLPC and did some cleanup
  24. :confused:... i just had a strange issue.

    I got an error in console, saying i could not pass PLAYER_COMMAND to MeasuringTape...then my server restarted...
    I'm running CB#445, and MT 0.7 ...

    Did this only occur on short commands like "//"?
    If yes, this got fixed with the last update.
  26. there were actually no commands going at that time. Just someone who did a smiley (this one: >:D )

    Fixed commands after CB #454

    This is fantastic for measuring out dimensions when building stuff. Thanks for this! Would you consider adding your plugin to CraftBukkitUpToDate?
