    Probably the simplest, yet the most effective, teleportation plugin I've seen so far.

    I'd still like to ask, when is the portal-linking feature coming up?

    Can you add a "cooldown" function in the config file to prevent lagg?

    Any possibility that you can give WP the option to load another world at startup? I am running two worlds on my server - the default (a non-pvp world) and then a second where pvp is enabled. However, when I restart the server, if someone is in the second world, it kicks them to the default and the user has to click the portation device for the world to load again. Also, some plugins I want to use for only the pvp world require it to be loaded upon server startup. If you could set that as an option, I'd love it! :)

    PS - just wanted to mention that I LOVE WP! :) I know there are other plugins out there that allow multi-world support, but someone will have to rip your plugin out of my server's cold, dead hands before I'll switch. Thanks for making this! :)

    Also make it so that you can give a certain group permissions to teleport to one world but deny them access to another

    Ok thanks. I'll probably add the video later.

    As you may know, I'm fully rewriting the plugin to add way better support in it. ALso payment (Economy plugins), linking, permissions and everything. :) But because I'm rewriting the full plugin it will take a little bit longer than other updates, sorry but I'm not sure when I'm finished yet.

    I've found an error with the "looking direction" feature.

    I've set the direction correctly, but it's only working for players in "creative mode". Normal players will spawn in the same direction they was before.

    Is there a workaround?

    Hmm strange. I didn't have this problem on my server. Well I'm fully rewriting the plugin and adding a lot of new features into it so it should be (automaticly) fixed then!

    Problem With World Portal
    Last time I went on my minecraft server with World Portal installed it said you don't have permission, even though I am opped and I am owner of the server,

  12. Offline

    Tim Visee

    It's probably because you have an permissions system on your server. If you have one, how is it called?
  13. Offline


    Yes, strange.. is'nt it? First I thought, it was a permission problem but the direction works only on creative mode (on the same account with same rights).

    PS: I use pressure plates for teleporting, maybe it's only there

    It is called PermissionsX! Should I delete the plugin? I have no use of the plugin!

    Tim Visee

    Hmm, sorry but I curently don't know what really happend.

    Well if you don't use this plugin you could delete it, but wait there is an easier way build into world portal.
    Go into the config.yml file and disable the permissions usage (I'm really sure there was an option for that, if not remove the permission plugin) When you did the above steps it should work fine. I hope you understand what I want to explain, I'm not really good at explaining things haha.

    when I use /wp remove, it tells me to right click on a sign to remove it. When I do right click on it, it says "This is already a world portal" and moves me into the other world. I've now go two random signs that deposit people at the bottom of an ocean and no way to remove them.

    Hmm, very strange! You may know that I'm fully rewriting the plugin.. there will be a lot of new features added, this should be fixed too :)

    I got up today and tried /wp remove and right clicked a portal and it deleted perfectly. I create a new one to test this and the same happened as before. It behaves as if it was typing /wb create. I expect if I come back to that portal tomorrow I will be able to delete it. This isn't very good as it takes trial and error to place two portals that deposit you in favourable spots. Since the portals aren't linked to each other you have to create many to get a two-way system and then delete the ones you don't want. But they don't delete. This may be down to lag, but its certainly not server lag. I have a 50 player server with just me on it at the moment.

    Hi, it could be a problem that after you used '/wp create' that the remove mode doesn't work anymore. of course this shouldn't happen. Could you also test if it does work again if you do /reload first? This has to be fixed in the upcomming version thought!
    About lag, I didn't fully understand what you want to explain, sorry. But I thought you said something like you haven't a two way portal system so you have to create more portals, this will cause lag. (I could be fully wrong!). But the answer to that is that it doesn't matter, something like this couldn't even cause lag to, this could be usefull to know.

    Can you add "flat" to the list of worlds you can newly create when making a new portal? I know I can place a new world myself, but it would be much easier that way.

    You may know that I'm fully rewriting the plugin to als add a lot of new features, I will try to add this feature too.
  22. Offline


    Ok, nice. If you are rewriting anyway, can you take a look to the looking directions? They don't always work, at some of my portals I said 180, but it was 0 degrees, and when I made the portal again, it was the same.

    PS: I LOVE this plugin, and though I have a private server with only 3 active players, I use it a LOT

    Ok is that a teleportation to an other world?
  24. Offline


    Maybe you could link it to warps from multiple plug-ins.
    that would make it really easy to make portals

  25. I have the same problem with the "error with the looking direction", and it only get fixed when I warp in Creative. I use pressure plates too. Server log: Player moved wrongly

    I'll keep that in mind, thanks.

    Ok, well. strange, but thanks for the report.
    About the moved wrongly message, I couldn't fix that, normally with other plugins you'll be kicked (Moved too quickly), but in world portal I wrote a fix for it, but that moved wrongly message does still exsist (sadly)

    I made some portals for people to teleport to other worlds and when i tried getting someone from each rank to test if it works i found out that only people with '*' (all commands) can use portals, but people with the permission to worldportal.teleport can do /wp tp (world)
  30. Hey, i don't know if this is my fult or not (i have read through the forums and instructions) but whenever i restart my server ALL of the world portals are reset, so EVERY time i restart, i have to find all the levers, buttons, and pressure plates and remake the world portals.

    might be an error on my part though, idk

    (just to let you know, i got an account just to post this question! luv ur plugin to much to just get rid of it =D)

    You have to use the permission node 'worldportal.use' to give players the ability to teleport though the portals

    You probably only copied the .jar file from the download, you also have to put the folder from the donwloaded file into your plugins folder, the plugin currently doesn't generate all it's files by itself. So I mean you have to copy the 'World Portal' folder from the downloaded zip into your plugins folder too, when you done this it should work.
