So, I played on a minecraft server before being banned that had made their own plugin they call Beacons that a user named "ylt" made. It was the most simplistic method of a user protecting their own area easily! Admins wouldn't even have to help set it, it was set all by the user. The user would set down a diamond block, gold ore, iron ore, gold block, different things, place a stone pressure plate on top of the block, and ignite it with a flint & steel, which activated it as a "beacon". The beacon, then depending on the type of ore/block it was, it would protect a certain radius, beleive 64 was the max for diamond block, and 8 or 16 for iron ore, and infinity upwards and downwards. The users protected area could only then be edited by him, OR, they could step on the beacons pressure plate and use the command '/beacon owner +<userToBeAdded>', or remove someone by using '/beacon owner -<userToBeRemoved>' They also had ways of checking which area was protected by who's beacon by using a tool of some short, and a /beacon owner to see who owns it (while standing on it). Log on to the server "smp.mcsteamed.net" to check it out, this plugin needs to be shared! I would write the code myself but I'm only basic with coding Java, could someone thats familiar with Minecraft source codes help me write this plugin? A somewhat long term project for any minecrafter but well worth it! Plugin is at: SMP.MCSteamed.net Email me at: Crymeisbad@yahoo.com I imagine it wouldn't be too hard, it'd be one class assuming based on the command /beacon. A few methods, one to add the other users, one to remove users, one for the initial setup, one for the check ID which would just be a simple return I'd assume. Please help!
