    Secret Passage
    Current Version: v1.6
    Old versions available on request - Shoot me a message

    NOTICE: I finally stopped stalling and made a BukkitDev page for this project. All future updates will be posted there, and I check for messages / posts frequently... Hope to see you over there!

    Have you ever wanted to create a wall that could disappear at a touch? Or a massive pit to trap your "friends" in? Are pistons just not enough to make the secret door of your dreams? Look no further!

    I did not come up with the original idea of this plugin. During the days of hMod and Alpha, I played on a server called "Kingdom of Strongholds", run by Rockslide. A few weeks before the server was shut down, a plugin similar to this one was added, and it was a blast to use. Sadly, I haven't been able to find anything like this for hMod or Bukkit, so I opted to write my own version from scratch...
    Also, I would like to thank @nisovin for helping me solve an inventory issue.

    How to Install:
    Download the .jar file from the link above (next to "Version:") and place it in your plugins folder. Start the server as normal. Then, stop the server and modify the config.yml file in plugins/SecretPassage/ to your liking. Finally, restart the server.

    How to Use:
    1) Start by building the shape of the structure out of any of the "active materials" you chose in the config. If you didn't change the config, use either Netherrack or Sponge. (I made this for a server with no nether, so netherrack isn't common...)

    2) Type in the command below to create a passage. It's worth noting that you can change the "create" part of the command in the config file, so it may be different based on what you entered.

    3) Hold the block that you want to replace the active material with, and punch it. If the material is allowed (also in config), the active material will absorb the item you're holding, and change to look like it. Repeat this until you have the structure built - you can safely place more active material if you need to, the plugin will only respond if the active material is punched while holding another item. By default, any solid block unaffected by gravity (aside from netherrack and sponge) can be used to decorate a passage.

    3b) If you punch (and activate) the wrong block, you can break it to remove it from the structure. Doing so will not return the active material used, so that will need to be placed again.

    4) Place another active block somewhere that you'll remember, then hold one of the items you chose for creating switches (in config) and punch it. The block will absorb the item and change into another material (chosen in config) to show that it is now a switch block. By default, you use a stone button to make switches, which turn into wooden planks for confirmation.

    5) If desired, break the switch block and replace with another block of your choosing. It must be selectable with a right-click to work (so no water, lava or air).

    6) Right-click the switch to test if the gate is working. If so, all the blocks you placed in step 3 will turn into air. Right-click the switch again to bring the structure back.

    7) Type the command /spass to end the passage construction process. You can always come back and modify it by using the create command again.

    Old Tutorial (open)

    Command List:
    • /spass [Alias: /sp, /secretpassage] The main command for the plugin. Also ends the passage building process.
    • /spass create* (PassageName) - Starts building on the named passage, creating it if necessary.
    • /spass destroy* (PassageName) - Destroys a passage you own (blocks are not removed). You can give a permissions node to let people destroy any passage on the server.
    • /spass destroy* switch - Sets you up so that a switch bound to the next block you right-click on is destroyed.
    • /spass list* - Lists all the passages that you own, in order of creation.
    • /spass list* (PlayerName) - Permissions-based command that lists passages owned by the named player.
    • /spass toggle* (PassageName) - Permissions-based command to toggle a named passage, provided you are in the same world.
    • /spass reset* - Permissions-based command that resets all passages based on redstone power to switches.
    • /spass timer (ticks) - Adds a reset timer to auto-close the passage after a set delay (specifically built to prevent making it accidentally auto-open...)
    • /spass timer 0 - Removes the timer of the passage you are working on.
    • /spass info (Passage Name) - Provides information on the listed passage. If you do not give a passage name, it provides information on the passage you are working on (if any).
    • /spass help - Lists all basic commands you have access to, as well as the proper structure for typing them.
    • /spass access - Lists the commands for working with white or black lists for passages.
    • /spass access allow (Name) (Name) (Name) (Name) - Adds the names included to the whitelist of your current passage, and sets the passage to use a whitelist.**
    • /spass access deny (Name) (Name) (Name) (Name) - Adds the names included to the blacklist of your current passage, and sets the passage to use a blacklist.**
    • /spass access remove (Name) (Name) (Name) (Name) - Removes the name from the whitelist/blacklist of your current passage.**
    • /spass access clear - Removes the access restrictions on your passage, allowing anyone to use it.
    * - Create, Destroy, Toggle, List, and Reset can all be replaced in the config.yml file, to allow for ease of use.
    ** - At the moment, you must use the full name, and the player must have logged in at least once. I am working on a name-finder to allow partial names for any online players, but that is not included yet. Also, ops and anyone with the antilockout permission will be able to bypass any access restrictions, and you cannot modify the passage owner's access.

    • Create structures that can disappear.
    • Includes option to prevent blocks in passages from being broken (to stop easy duplication)
    • Includes options to consume resources when decorating passages, as well as the ability to choose what can be used in their creation.
    • Choose your own commands to replace create, destroy, toggle, and list.
    • Includes option so that only the owner of a passage (or an op) can modify it, while anyone can use the switches made by them to toggle the passage.
    • More than one switch can be assigned to a passage, but only one passage can be assigned to a switch.
    • Passages do not have to be continuous, but cannot have blocks on multiple worlds. You could build a disappearing village if you felt so inclined.
    • SuperPerms support (as of v1.0)
    • Preliminary Redstone support (as of v1.2)
    • Ability to have passages close themselves after a set delay (as of v1.4)
    • Provide access on a passage-by-passage basis (as of v1.6)
    • If passage protection is active, pistons will break when trying to push a passage block, and cannot pull out a passage block if sticky (as of v1.6)
    Permissions Nodes:
    • secretpassage.* - Provides all nodes other than lockout and deny (Default: Op)
    • secretpassage.create.other - Allows user to bypass the owner-only protection option if it is enabled
    • secretpassage.destroy.other - Allows user to destroy any passage on server, regardless of owner
    • secretpassage.list.other - Allows user to check passages owned by other players
    • secretpassage.toggle - Provides access to the toggle command
    • secretpassage.reset - Provides access to the reset command.
    • secretpassage.lockout - Prevents user from using any portion of the plugin
    • secretpassage.antilockout - Prevents admin using all-nodes plugins from accidentally barring themselves from using plugin
    A Note on SuperPerms (open)
    I know I stated that I wouldn't add support for any plugins to this, and I stand by that statement. SuperPerms are integrated into Bukkit itself, meaning that I don't have to worry about waiting for it to update to keep my plugin compatible with recommended Bukkit builds.

    You can use this plugin without using SuperPerms (I personally do, strange as that may sound...), as the extra features will default to Op, and everyone by default can create and destroy their own passages. However, it's worth noting that the .lockout node is checked for first, and will restrict access no matter who the person is, or what other nodes they have. This means that the server owner can actually lock other Ops out from their private area, and the plugin won't question it.

    To-Do List:
    • PRIORITY: Add ability to restrict access on a per-passage level. - in v1.6
    • Add saving of block data (for colored wool, logs, torch placement, etc) - in v0.9
    • Refine saving of block data for block orientation.
    • Allow Ops to toggle passages from any world.
    • Add timer options to passages. in v1.4
    • Add option to enable/disable based on redstone current hitting a switch.
    • Improve redstone support.
    • Add option to activate switches on left click.
    • Figure out how to make system accept things like doors and beds during placement (I feel a massive IF structure coming on...)
    • v1.6 - Pistons will naturally break when they attempt to push a block out of a passage. Sticky pistons cannot pull blocks out of passages. Added the allow/deny options for passages.
    • v1.5a - The .deny permission has been a pain for several versions now, and has been removed. Working on a command-based replacement.
    Old version changelog (open)

    • v1.5 - Cleaned up code for new syntax, as well as (hopefully) squashing the SuperPerms bug (again). Also killed the unintended bug of being able to stack timed reactivations of a passage.
    • v1.4 - Fixed logic bug in SuperPerms support, added timers and building in creative mode.
    • v1.3a - Hopeful fix for accidentally breaking protection plugins.
    • v1.3 - Tried to make redstone more multi-world friendly, added redstone options to config file, provided variable to allow automatic updating of config if needed later.
    • v1.2a - Added code to Redstone enabling process for stability.
    • v1.2 - Preliminary redstone support.
    • v1.1b - Fixed faulty logic from trying to code at 1am.
    • v1.1a - Quick fix to counter accidentally gaining the deny permission
    • v1.1 - Fixed support for new blocks, as well as removing blocks from passages.
    • v1.0 - Added SuperPerms support, putting this at a comfortable "proper release" point.
    • v0.9.1 - Bugfix for NPE in passage construction.
    • v0.9 - Added storage of block data, with legacy support for older passages.
    • v0.8 - Stable release with source included.
    • v0.1-v0.7 - Unstable versions as I destroyed bugs and added features.

    A Note on Other Plugin Support (open)
    While a lot of other plugins are great matches with this plugin (iConomy, etc), I will not be personally adding support for these options. However, the source code is included in the .jar file, so that anyone who wants to make changes can take a crack at it. Sadly, I'm not the greatest at uniform code structure or commenting, so the only assistance you'll find in there is a small comment at the top of each function to describe it.

    If you add a feature that you believe should be shared (such as permissions support), I have a request: add an option to the config.yml file to disable it. If you're willing to do that, then post it here and tag me in the post, that way I can take a look at it. I'll test it and add it as a proper version, making sure to include your name in the credits section.

    Not sure what is happening, but I'd love to help get it working. I can't seem to reproduce the issue using the current plugin version on my test world (using 1.4.5-R0.2), and the code isn't throwing any errors when compiled against the new version of Bukkit.... are there any errors shown in the console (especially when trying to make a switch...)?

    well seeing as i'm on a hosted server i can't access the console as you would if you were to host it from running it off your own laptop or pc, i'm on a bukkit server in 1.4.4 on the client 1.4.5, now with the update it has said that, 1.4.5 is compatible with 1.4.5 so i'm not too sure about it, but it was working fine while i was on 1.4.4 for my client so i'm not too sure what exactly the problem is, if needs be, i'll copy the files needed and test the server just off my laptop and see what happens

    Based on the PM, it looks like a file went missing. If I can see a copy of your SecretPassage folder, I can find the missing piece and replace it. Check your inbox for contact info.
