    This is now inactive - is where you can find the currently active developed version.

    Release v0.854 contains the fix to stop the IndexOutOfBoundsException that happens when 3d shapes have no light blocks. Also contains the fix for 2d gate iris levers (they get added properly again). The Wormhole X-Treme Worlds support is for a version of WXW that is still under development, expect things to break badly if you enable it without the proper version of WXW (0.5, which is not released as of yet).

    If this is your first time downloading this please download the zip, it contains the database software we depend upon.
    You are also encouraged to read the changelog and readme. Especially the readme.
    Basic instruction for use and configuration can be found below.

    Major Features:
    • Player teleportation!
    • Multi-world support
    • Permissions integration (As well as some basic built-in permissions)
    • Custom 3d & 2d gate shapes
    • Iris password protection
    • Minecart teleportation
    • Help plugin integration

    When I first heard about bukkit I knew I wanted to write a plugin. As I always wanted a way to teleport around I thought it would be fun to write a mod that could do this. I thought writing one like the Stargates from Stargate would be cool.

    So I decided I would make my own portal plugin as my first try at bukkit (and really first mod for Minecraft so far).

    So here is my release of Wormhole X-Treme!

    Samkio made a usage video here, it is a touch out of date but the general idea still works:

    Changelog with important entries in bold (open)

    Changes 0.854
    • Updated chunk (un)loading to happen when gate (de)activates and when dial lever state changes happen.
    • Fixed iris levers not being added properly with 2d gates. (Oops, guess that code WAS needed)
    • Fixed IndexOutOfBoundsException on 3d gate shapes without lighting blocks.
    • Hamfisted fix for signs not updating. Now we nuke the sign and build it from scratch every time a gate sign is toggled. Causes a flash, but... who cares. It works EVERY time now.
    Changes 0.853:
    • Fix for /dial gates breaking when a user who doesn't have dialer permission hit the lever.
    • Switched to getTypeId() from getType(), hopefully this works around the getType() == Air bug that might be lingering.
    Changes 0.852:
    • Added support for upcoming Permissions 3.0.x release.
    • Fixed a NPE in 2d shape code dealing with light block positions.
    • Added soft dependencies to plugin.yml.
    • Minor log format changes for readability.
    Changes 0.851:
    • Complete revamp of how we handle permissions checks. Lots more case statements, lots less if/else if. Much better. This is what enums are for.
    • Added new gate use cooldowns. This feature will only work on complex permissions enabled servers. There are three groups you can assign a player to; 'wormhole.cooldown.groupone', 'wormhole.cooldown.grouptwo', and 'wormhole.cooldown.groupthree'. If you have an '*' on any user/group, remember to '-wormhole.cooldown.groupone' etc. There is a new command to enable, disable, and modify cooldowns; 'wormhole cooldown [true|false|group] <time>', valid groups being 'one', 'two', and 'three', valid time being between 15 and 3600 seconds. There are also Settings.txt options for all of these new settings. Cooldowns are set when a player enters a stargate, not when they /dial. Cooldowns are removed via timer events, and even if the timer event fails, we do a fall back calculation when a player enters a stargate, and gets denied access.
    • Added new gate build count restrictions. This feature will only work on complex permissions enabled servers. There are three groups you can assign a player to; '', '', and ''. If you have an '*' on any user/group, remember to '' etc. There is a new command to enable, disable, and modify build count restrictions; 'wormhole restrict [true|false|group] <count>', valid groups being 'one', 'two', and 'three', valid count being between 1 and 200. There are also Settings.txt options for all of these new settings.
    • Updated the stargate sign dial sign reset code to be more reliable at causing the client to notice update changes.
    • Added a thrown exception during stargate 3d shape parsing if the shape doesn't have an exit point. We depend on this location for pretty much everything. If it isn't there, really bad bad bad things happen.
    • Now we have more than just Standard as our default shape. We extract Standard, StandardSignDial, Minimal, and MinimalSignDial to the gateShape folder if it is missing shapes.
    • Now we don't toggle stargate signs when we start.
    Changes 0.850:
    • iConomy support removed. I will not depend on plugins that decide to change their package name 5 major versions in and basically give everyone who depended on the package location the middle finger.
    • 3d Gate shapes now implemented.
    • Custom gate settings now in place (read: per gate material settings). This included the re-addition of the portalmaterial and irismaterial commands. lightmaterial, redstone, wooshdepth, and custom commands newly added.
    • Massive internal overhaul, refactorings, cleanups, general goodness and bugfixes.
    • Added support for Wormhole X-Treme Worlds. This allows Wormhole X-Treme to offload its chunk loading and world loading to WXW, for worlds that exist in WXW. Requires user to change Settings.txt option WORLDS_SUPPORT_ENABLED from false to true. This option requires Wormhole X-Treme Worlds v0.5 to be installed, and preferably configured for every existing world populated with stargates. If this option is set to true but WXW is not v0.5 (or not installed), WX will not load its stargates from its database.
    • Removed many superfluous chunk load requests. Added graceful chunk unload queue when we are done with a chunk.
    • Bumped supported version of permissions to include the 2.7 tree.
    • Updated help text for new/modified commands.
    • Added backwards compatibility, for those users who just don't want to upgrade to 3d shapes.
    • Added loads of failsafe settings, for when users don't have any shapes installed, but have stargates already.
    • wxidc now only works on non-sign powered gates which have iris activation blocks set.
    Changes 0.833:
    • Fixed iConomy double(or many many more) charging issue. Tried to do something awesome, turned out to be a bad idea. We'll revisit these kind of changes when 3d shapes are in and I can do some major refactoring and method merges/splits.
    • Bumped supported version of permissions to include the 2.6 tree.
    • Merged some of the sign click schedule related methods. Should make sign click messages more reliable.
    Changes in v0.832:
    • Fixed a NPE in new database initialization. Whoops, missing null-check, added.
    Changes in v0.831:
    • Fixed erroneous messages sent when a plugin is attached to already and WXT receives a plugin event for it. Cosmetic bug, fixed.
    Changes in v0.830:
    • Water now will not flow over Stargate anythings. No more broken levers and magic blocks of water floating in their place.
    • Buckets now will no longer work with stargate anythings. No free water and lava.
    • Minor optimizations and code cleanups.
      • All configuration values associated with these are gone now.
      • Gate shapes without these default to
    • Updated default gate shapes that come in the zip to include these new values.
      • See gate shape files for more details
    • Removed version 1 DB conversion because new design doesn't allow for it anymore.
      • For users this means if you are upgrading from version 0.3 or less to this version you will need to remake your gates.
    • Fixed NPE in onPlayerInteract caused by event not reporting the block the interact event was associated with.
    • Logic tweak in the find safe teleport code. Should be *safererer*
    • Sign powered stargates now can only target other sign powered stargates.
    • Fixed so that when coming from a lava portal stargate to a non-lava portal stargate fire damage is canceled still. No more nasty fire after a teleport.
    • Added the logic back in to stop people from randomly teleporting when next to the lever of an active gate. The side effect is, when block.getType() fails, gates don't work. Its one or the other.
    • Fixed /wxcomplete permission deny issue with stargates on public networks.
    • Added ICONOMY_OWNER_EXEMPT option to Settings.txt with a default value of true. When true this option disables the charging of gate owners for using their own gates.
    Changed in v0.821:
    • Update version of iConomy we build against and test for.
    • Fix NPE in old non-shape based gates.
    • Added custom StargateTeleportEvent for MinecartMania as we nuke the minecarts before we teleport the player and put them back in the minecart.
    • Refactored package to com.wormhole_xtreme.wormhole in anticipation of adding more stargate related projects.
    Changed in v0.820:
    • Initial support for CraftBukkit Build 600.
    • Got rid of the stupid double error that people got by not reading the readme. Now when we parse settings.txt, if the value is integer for the iconomy settings, we change it to a double by simply dropping a .0 at the end of it. Problem solved.
    • Lots of optimizations to the distance finding method we were using. Also fixes to the gate shape parsing code. (Thanks lirelent)
    • Overhaul of the way we handle permissions internally. More unified approach to the actual permissions checks.
    • Gate block protection should now be compatible with plugins like mcMMO. "Should" being the operating word.
    • Levers now properly move when used and toggle on and off when stargate and iris are activated.
    • All Permissions deny events now log at Level.FINE. Got permissions problems with WXT? Now see what is happening.
    • Optimized fire protection. Now we use timer events that go off 2 seconds after gates close. This way we don't have to listen for fire type events 24/7. :)
    • Fixed teleportation dropping people into very unsafe locations. Now we scan for safe place to drop people, if we can't find one we drop the player in front of the DHD. This will also FIX wormholes by setting the stored teleport location to the new clean and safe location.
    • We now support using the help plugin along with WXT.
    • We now have settings.txt options to hard disable support of iConomy, Permissions, and the help plugin. No longer do we log a warning when unable to find the plugin we depend on. We log at INFO. :p
    • Buttons are no longer really used. If a button exists on a stargate, it will be replaced with a shiny new lever on the first use.
    • Lava stargates are *really* safe to use now. For trees even. Not minecarts though.
    • A whole host of debugging information has been added at Level.FINE. If you can trigger a bug reliably, set yourself to fine and provide the server.log details surrounding the bug. Not recommended for production servers as well... its exceissive.
    • The '/wormhole regenerate' command is partially added. Will regenerate missing activation and iris levers.
    • Minecarts work across chunks and worlds now! If you run into a location where it doesn't work, use the wormhole in both directions to correct the wormhole, then try again. :)
    Changed in v0.812:
    - /wxgo now works properly when traversing world bounderies. First we quickly pop into the default spawn location for the target world, then from there we go to our final destination. It is a hack, but it is a working hack. :)
    - methodized the code to find closest stargates, and find distance from closest stargate blocks as well as the math to find distance.
    - Updated block ignition events to only use proximity style checks. Block ignition event cancellation radius increased to active stargate woosh depth or 4 blocks, which ever is further.
    - Updated '/wxcompass' to use new FindClosestStargate method.
    - Updated onEntityDamage to use only proximity style checks. On active gates a bubble of no fire damage of either woosh_depth or 4 blocks, which ever is larger, is created. On closed gates a bubble of 2 blocks is created to stop fire ticks occuring right as a gate closes. Stopped caring about potential drowning in stargate. If user decides they want to stand in the wrong side of a gate till they drown, that is their choice.
    - Re-added missing CONSTRUCT_NAME_TAKEN error string in ConfigManager. This stops an NPE in 'wxcomplete'.
    - Added support for tkelly's Help plugin. Will generate proper config based on permissions type (simple or complex) or lack of permissions plugin altogether.
    - Refactored the heck out of iConomy and Permissions support. Own classes in a new package to go along with the Help support. Methodized a bunch of useful functions. Less duplicated code.
    - Added some log output for 'wxforce'. Should help combat abuse.
    - Ops are now always able to use 'wxremove'.
    - The '/wormhole simple' command now refreshes Help entries to the proper permissions after being set.

    Changes in v0.811:
    - Came up with a proximity based check for stargates in the lava & fire event
    cancellation code. Now only 3 block radius around active lava portals
    gets its lava & fire events cancelled. STATIONARY_LAVA is safe for players
    to use in portals now. For reals.
    - Version 4.5 of iConomy is now supported and verified as working.
    - Now we actually check for Iris on gate use while in minecart...
    - Back to the good ol kick the player out of the cart and stuff them through
    the stargate method. Doing a bit of a hackish teleport when going between
    worlds as well. We tp to spawn, then instantly to destination. This is only
    when starting the tp while in minecart. If minecart is empty and passing
    into a stargate that will traverse worlds, we kick the minecart back. Otherwise
    it will dissapear into the void.
    - Now we cancel block ignite events on a proximity basis, same way we cancel
    fire and lava events on player. No more trees bursting into flames near a stargate.

    Changes in v0.810:
    - Broke '/wxcompass' out into its own class. Removed '/wormhole compass'.
    - Broke '/wxcomplete' out into its own class. Removed '/wormhole complete'.
    - Broke '/wxidc' out into its own class.
    - Broke '/wxremove' out into its own class. Removed '/wormhole remove'. Fixed so it toggles iris to off state before removing gates with iris active.
    - Broke '/wxlist' out into its own class. Added no permissions error message. Removed from '/wormhole' command.
    - Added command '/wxgo' and broke it out into its own class. Added no permissions error message.Removed from '/wormhole' command.
    - Broke '/dial' out into its own class.
    - Broke '/wxbuild' out into its own class.
    - Broke '/wormhole' out into its own class.
    - Added another message for active gates. Now it will say either remote activated, or activated by someone else already.
    - Added SIMPLE_PERMISSIONS config option. The default value of 'false' makes permissions node settings use complex mode. While the setting of true sets the plugin to check for extremely simplified permissions. Permission node details can be found in the README.
    - Refactored the WXForce class to Force. Hopefully this shuts MSSE up. ^^;
    - Moved a bunch of the initial loading out of onEnable and into onLoad. Now we use onEnable only for events that should only happen at plugin Enable.
    - Updated '/wormhole' command to have more descriptive errors and built in help. Updated help information for this command as well. Command now has unified messaging string headers. Added new 'simple' option to enabling simple permissions while the game is live. Requires the user to have proper permissions node for configuration in target mode. Removed a bunch of duplicated permissions checks. Only one check is needed at beginning of command call now.
    - Revamped readme to reflect important recent plugin package changes.
    - Fire damage, combustion damage, and drown events now canceled in stargate. Now LAVA is really a valid portal material.
    - Creeper explosions are now canceled when they would cause damage to stargates. This will stop signs and buttons from being destroyed during that mad dash to/from a stargate. ^^

    Install directions (open)

    New Install:
    1. Download the zip.
    2. Unzip file into same directory that your craftbukkit.jar exists in. This should put the hsqldb.jar into the lib/ folder, the WormholeXTreme.jar into the plugins/ folder, and the latest versions of GateShapes into the plugins/WormholeXTreme/GateShapes/ folder.
    3. Start server
    4. (Optional) Stop the server and edit the newly generated /plugins/WormholeXTreme/settings.txt file as needed.
    5. (Optional) Edit gate shapes in /plugins/WormholeXTreme/GateShapes/
    6. (Optional) If using the Permissions plugin based plugin, set up the appropriate permissions. If using SIMPLE_PERMISSIONS = true remember to use permissions from the Simple Mode list, otherwise use nodes from Complex Node.
    7. (Optional) Start Server again

    Basic use instructions (open)

    Basic Use:
    First off you need to make a stargate. I you can see the design design below - you need the Gate, a Dial Home Device (DHD), and a stone button or lever facing away from the gate on the DHD. The purple blocks are Obsidian, and the Blue has to be air, but will turn to water when the gate is activated.

    A real example of a constructed gate:

    You MUST make the gate exactly as it is in the picture.

    Once it is assembled hit the button ( You need to stand at least one block away from the button for the event to trigger. ) and the system will confirm that the stargate is properly made. If you don't see a "wormhole design valid" message you did not create the gate properly.
    If you did see the message, you simply type /wormhole complete <name> to finish and name the gate. A name sign with the gates name should appear on the gate. You can optionally type /wxcomplete <name> <idc=[IDC]> (idc = iris deactivation code, or the code needed to use the gate) - this will make your gate password protected.

    Now if you hit the button again it will "activate" the gate to be dialed.

    To Dial (after hitting the button) you type "/dial <remote_gate_name>" and the gate will open and fill with water! (You can change the portal material by using /wormhole material) The gates currently don't by default timeout after dialing. If the remote gate has an iris code you will need to type "/dial <name> <idc>" to activate the remote gate.

    Hitting the button again from the gate that dialed out will deactivate the gate. Pressing the button on a gate that has been dialed in to will do nothing because you can't activate a gate that is remotely activated. (Tried to keep it just like the show haha).

    Name Sign Dialing (Public Gate System):
    • NOTE: This is an alternate way to BUILD a gate. Currently existing gates will not work by simple placing a sign next to the activation button. You will need to /wormhole remove first and then re-complete the gate using this system.
    • Place a second obsidian "pillar" next to the main DHD and place a sign on it. Put the name of the gate on the top line.
    • Gates with this sign can only be dialed via the sign now. You will only see other gates that have a sign.
    • Gate without a sign can dial IN to a sign gate.
    • AGAIN : If you make a gate without a sign it will NOT be on the list of gates.
    • To cycle through possible gates use right click - Sometimes it takes a click or two for it to work :)
    • See here for sign dialer gate example:
    • 2011-01-25_02.15.31.png
    • Note - unless you have STARGATE_FULL_ACCESS or "wormhole.remove" you will be unable to destroy any blocks that are part of the gate.
    • Networks!
      • If you put any text on the second line of the sign, it will be the "network" the gate is on.
      • You will only be able to dial other gates on the same network as you
      • Currently you cannot change the network, so make sure you type it correctly!
      • By default (if nothing is put on the second line) a gate will be part of the "Public" network.

    Basic configuration settings (open)

    • All configuration is now stored in a file /plugins/WormholeXTreme/Settings.txt
      • All descriptions of the settings will be found in that file with the settings.
    • You can change some options while the server is running:
      • /wormhole activate_timeout <optional_timeout>
        • This is the length of time after activating but before dialing that the gate deactivates.
        • This does not affect sign dialed gates.
      • /wormhole shutdown_timeout<optional_timeout>
        • Setting to 0 means portal only closes after something goes through, and then immediately closes.
        • This setting is how long after a player dials a gate before the gate shuts down.

    Permissions plugin settings (open)

    • This plugin works with the Permissions plugin. (Currently 2.5+ Only)
      • Changing the built in permissions will not change the Permissions plugin at all.
    • Without the Permissions plugin you can use the built-in permissions (disabled by default)
    • /wormhole perms - for more information
    • to enable/disable default perms /wormhole perms active <true|false>
    • When built-in permissions are active:
      • Default OPs get all access
      • Default all other users get USE only
    Permissions Plugin Nodes: (Controlled by settings.txt - SIMPLE_PERMISSIONS)
    Complex Mode:
    wormhole.use.sign - lets a user use sign gates.
    wormhole.use.dialer - lets a user use '/dial' gates
    wormhole.use.compass - lets a user use '/wxcompass' command.
    wormhole.remove.own - lets a user remove a gate that they own
    wormhole.remove.all - lets a user remove any gate - Able to build new wormholes
    wormhole.config - Able to configure settings like material and timeout
    wormhole.list - Able to use '/wxlist' command to list wormholes - Able to use wormholes on NETWORKNAME - Able to build wormholes on NETWORKNAME
    wormhole.go - allows user to use '/wxgo' command. - Part of build restriction group one. - Part of build restriction group two. - Part of build restriction group three.
    wormhole.cooldown.groupone - Part of wormhole use cooldown group one.
    wormhole.cooldown.grouptwo - Part of wormhole use cooldown group two.
    wormhole.cooldown.groupthree - Part of wormhole use cooldown group three.

    Simple Mode:
    wormhole.simple.use - Lets a user use wormholes. - Lets a user build wormholes.
    wormhole.simple.remove - Lets a user remove wormholes.
    wormhole.simple.config - Lets a user configure WormholeXTreme settings

    Help plugin settings (open)

    • Currently there are no configuration options for Help the help plugin. It is just plug and play. If you want to change the help text, you are able to do such via the Help plugin override build into the Help plugin.

    As always please let us know of any bugs! Just remember, some bugs are in vanilla and craftbukkit itself, so we may not be able to address them easily.

    this is easily the coolest portal system..

    Glad you like it.
    I said the same thing right before I decided I wanted to help write code for it. ^^

    Ok, I'll have to continue fixing these bugs when I get home. I have to run off and do some work for the people who pay my bills. In my git repo I have fixed the vehicle teleport issues dealing with iris and permissions. Now we actually check for both when dealing with minecart teleportation.

    When I get home I'll push the iConomy and Combust fixes (I know what and where, just don't have the time this second to actually write the code).

    After I finish those I'll make an effort again to get the teleporting in a minecart between chunks stuff working as intended. Just keep in mind, the minecart stuff is a work in progress. This is my first stab at this portion of the code. I know @Lologarithm was smacking his head against a desk while trying to fix this... so... we'll see. :)

    If all goes as planned, I'll drop another test build later today. If it works and no other show stopper bugs are reported, I will do a full release.

    Just remember, this release requires craftbukkit build #553+ due to our using new methods.

    Question, is there any documentation for this plugin?
    I can't seem to get anything out of ingame help system.

    Also, it is .810 or .81 ? Kinda disappointing that newer version reporting smaller version number.
  5. Offline


    v0.810 = v0.81. Silly bukkit likes to silently drop the trailing zero.
    If you want the basic command list, open the wormholextreme.jar (with winzip, winrar, or 7zip) and view the plugin.yml file. Better documentation will come with the full release. The copy of v0.810 that everyone is testing right now is just that, a test build.

    Well, I'm more interested in plugin management, which is not related to commands.
    F.e. gate shape selection/enforcement (which I only realized from careful distribution package inspection), clearer explanation of DHD placement rules, and so on.
    I shall retract my previous statement about restrictions imposed by plugin, it came solely due to lack of even basic documentation, apart from single example which is not really clear to me, and leaving more questions than it answering.
    If you don't mind me bombarding you with questions, I could help you write one.

    And speaking of commands, implementing more than one key command for a single-purpose plugin is a bad practice.
    Please consider wrapping them into single ("/wx" ?) command. Like "/wx dial <gate> [<IDC>]".

    Unrelated question, but I can't find answer myself. How to setup CB for multiworld support? (Link to documentation or plugin would be enough, thanks. I've found MultiVerse, but I weren't excited by it's current status and dependencies.)
  7. The dial command is just /dial <gate> [<IDC>], which is shorter than what you're asking for. Not sure why that would be a bad practice...
  8. Offline


    I can read documentation, thanks. I know what is the current command for that.
    Now, do you know, to which plugin this command belong? (Answer "yes" is wrong.)

    I am using version v 0.801/Bukkit 556 and have had the Stargate working well on previous versions, but now created gates do not save and do not persist with each restart. Requiring us to re-complete the gates with each restart. Is this a bug or might I have done something wrong?

  10. Offline


    Check and make sure the hsqldb.jar is in lib/
    We changed the location a few versions back. :)

    Not to be rude, but I like the way we have our commands setup now.

    Every command that might conflict with another command is prefixed with wx. Everything used to be stuffed under /wormhole, but honestly, it was a bit clunky, thus why it has been downgraded to a configuration command only. /dial has no conflicts I know of at the moment, and if there are? They can change their command. ^^

    Not to mention, if you are using a Stargate (SG1/Atlantis/Universe) based mod, you should know what /dial is for. ^^

    If someone comes up with a better structure, they can submit a github pull request with proper code and we'll evaluate it. ^^

    No errors on the console? Because seriously, the problem you are describing sounds like the hsqldb.jar is not being loaded properly.

  13. Yes, I do know which plugin that belongs to, because I know how to use the plugin, and that requires "/dial". It's not like it's something generic like /block or something...what other plugin could you be meaning to activate with /dial?

    That's what I think too, but it's in the right place. But, here is the only error pertaining to the plugin.

    Ok, after many many hours of forehead smacking desk, I finally came up with a viable way of stopping the whole being set on fire issue with lava portals. Not sure if it will be too expensive processor wise though... had to do a proximity check (TWICE no less. One to find the closest gate, the next to find the closest block in gate, so we didn't have a huge bubble of no fire). Now 1 block away from any active stargate with STATIONARY_LAVA as the portal material we cancel all fire type events. You'll visually burn, but no damage happens.

    I've got the iConomy + minecarts and fire damage cancel + minecarts left to add in.

    Looks like I'll drop another test build later today (after I sleep some).

    i think i have a problem.Sry 4 my english ;)
    I was install this plugin, it works, the connection with /dial works...but when i remove a gate with /wxremove name
    and i build a new stargate with dhd ...nothing happend...i must restart the server then comes the dialog with wxcomplete...but only when i delete any gates...1 or 2 minutes new stargarte can i register.

    And what is with the passwort for a is the wright command?

    /wxcomplete Gate1 123456
    ? or
    /wxcomplete Gate idc=123456

    I use craftbukkit...and groupmanager

    Upgrade to craftbukkit build 556 and the needing to restart issue will go away. The needing to restart is related to a bug in the bukkit block.getType() method that was fixed in build 552 of craftbukkit. If you decide not to upgrade to b556 there is nothing we can do to help you out. :)

    If you are using WormholeXTreme v0.801 the command to password a gate is '/wxcomplete gatename idc=password'. If you are not using v0.801, you may wish to upgrade to it as it contains a fix for extremely broken permissions check in 'wxremove'

    I know too. Now, if you could take a moment to descend from your high chair, and look at it from point of view of a regular user, who just typed /help and looking at list of commands...
    With every plugin installed, this list will grow. It's not bad per se, but if it start growing exponentially, it's no good.
    You MAY provide aliases for often used commands. But they MUST be user- ("user" in this case is "server administrator") configurable, so conflicts between them could be solved without intervention of a developers of either conflicting entity.

    ...say it is not rude. I have no doubt you like it. Neither I ask you to throw it away.
    Nothing personal, but a cool smile does not change the fact that /dial command could be that plugin main purpose.

    You are working from "it may". I'm working from "it will".
    I saw it way too many times in my life, when an "if it could happen, it will happen when you least prepared" joke come true. Last one was no more than a week ago. (New alias for /tphere blocked /s(tackable) main purpose command.)

    That's why I propose to cut it down to /wx. Even for configuration, you don't want to type "/wormhole" all times.

    Imagine, I know it only because I saw "Stargate" movie once. May be 1.5 times. I could very well be completely unaware, and looking at your mod from practical point of view, rather than nostalgic. (And I'm honestly trying to do the former, although the latter has it's involvement as well. And speaking of SG1, I don't like a chewTVgum, no matter the wrappings.)

    No change in structure.
    Just make /wx a primary command, like
    /wx dial
    /wx complete
    /wx ...
    And provide a couple of handful aliases to most used commands, like "/dial" to "/wx dial".

    Back to more practical questions: How to select shape for a gate? Can I use multiple shapes at the same time?

    Or, if you want a more practical view of my idea:
    We're about to merge servers, after which, we'll have two "worlds" plus a "nether".
    I want to build a "network"(in sense of WX) of gates that link all major PoI's, like our HQ, their base, major buildings... nether... these will be in global network, probably available for guests.
    Also I want a number of private gates, that are either just outside network, or protected, either to dial in, or to use at all.
    The third layer is a throw-out spawnpoints, that only available to dial in and will be used to visit "special places".

    Does ":L" means the block will (simply) emit light? Could I create a portal shape like

    ::error:: No gate activated to dial. What does that mean ? :eek:
  20. Offline


    Does it check for gate consistency before allowing to dial in/pass through? I see you mentioning "until it reach ground", but what if there's no ground at all?
  21. Offline


    It means you must first select a gate to dial by hitting the gates corresponding button
    Is there an estimated time on when this great plugin will be updated to the newest version of iConomy?

    how do i select the gate ?
  23. Offline


    It may bitch about the version, but if the plugin doesn't crash or spew massive java errors on the console, it should work.

    As is, I'll test latest iConomy and bump the warning filter to the latest version. So... next WXT release it'll stop complaining.

    ok thank you very much :D hope its working as intended

    Looks to be working as intended. At least from my basic testing. :)

    So, got iConomy checks working with minecart teleportation. Also seem to be getting pretty close to reliable portal use while in minecart. ^^

    Hahaha, awesome. Always nice seeing people use stargates in interesting ways. :)

    Curious - Any plans to support Essentials 'Eco' as an alternative to iConomy?
    I'm just deciding which one to go with (Essentials is installed already so it's slightly preferred </lazy>) but to be honest whatever WX supports would be the deciding vote ;)

    Also I'm still curious as to what you would say is a practical maximum size for a gate? Esp reading about with the new cancelling fire ticks etc.

    Also .810 working fine here (apart from /wxbuild not building a 60 block diameter gate shape - lol)

    After reading the past few pages, I want to just voice my own opinion real quick. I really, really like AnrDaemon's suggestion, that all Wormhole X-Treme commands be consolidated into the /wx command, and accept arguments after that. I could be absolutely incorrect, and I understand the developers have their personal preferences, but it appears, on the outside, to be a much cleaner implementation of commands.

    That aside, I'm very pleased with how well this plugin has advanced since I adopted it. One little thing I believe needs to be checked, as far as lava gates go. I might be wrong, but I believe lava can ignite materials further than one block away. It'd be a shame if someone made the mistake of constructing a portal in a forest on a server where lava is set as the portal block!

    I just verified the concerns about lava gates. Trees do burst into flames near lava portals. I'll go about cancelling those events too. ;)
