Multicast - Simple channels for ops/admins Version: v1.09 Need to chat with your ops/admins but don't want a full-scale channel system? Multicast integrates with Permissions to chat with groups. The default setup is Code: o=Ops a=Admins The server now has two channel codes, "o" and "a", referring to the named channels "Ops" and "Admins". The channel name is purely cosmetic! So far, there is no relationship between the channels and the groups. This relationship is defined by granting access in "Permissions/config.yml": Code: multicast.o.send multicast.o.receive multicast.a.send multicast.a.receive On my own server, members of the "ops" group has access to send on both channels but only receive on "o". Administrators ofcourse have '*' so they can send and receive on any channel. Now, to chat with my ops, I simply type Code: /multicast o This important info can only be read by ops and admins This simple Permissions-controlled setup means you can grant permissions directly to users if you want to create "multicast groups" that are not limited to or inherited by groups. Features: Configurable commands once more! Configurable channels Integrates with Permissions 2.5.4 Not limited to groups, grant send/receive permissions to individual players Download http://minecraft.atc.no/plugins/Multicast.jar Recommend you combine this with http://minecraft.atc.no/plugins/RegexFilter.jar Source code is included Changelog 1.00 - Original release 1.01 - Changed plugin namespace 1.02 - Removed the "stupidly long constructor" as per Bukkit team recommendation 1.03 - Dynamic commands are no longer supported. Plugin adapted by implementing a /multicast command. This makes it a little more cumbersome but there are solutions. 1.04 - Eaten by the cookie monster 1.05 - Fixed deprecated calls to Permissions. Version 2.5.4 is now required. 1.06 - Dynamic commands supported once more. Yay! 1.07 - Removed debug messages that were accidently left in. Oops. 1.08 - Fixed a bug causing Permissions 2.6 to misbehave. 1.09 - /multicast command now works properly from the server console. TODO This plugin will be updated to work with built-in permissions. Other than that I aim to keep it as simple as possible. If you want a full-fledged channel system, I recommend you look elsewhere. As with all my plugins, the source is included with no strings attached. Have fun!
