    DispenserButton - Put Buttons on Dispensers

    The Minecraft 1.6 release removed the ability to place buttons on dispensers. Before 1.6, placing a button on the ground next to a dispenser would cause the button to attach, which was obviously a bug. This plugin allows you to slap a button on the side of a dispenser in a very natural way, instead of placing it on the ground. Additionally, support for levers on pistons was added after Minecraft 1.7 was released. There are no permissions, although WorldGuard protections are respected.

    • Attach buttons and levers directly to dispensers and pistons
    • Support for region protections from WorldGuard and other plugins

    Can you not place the button on the front?

    The front should work. Is it not working for you?

    Works great! Can you do the same with pistons?

    I think a lever would be more useful on a piston. I'll see what I can do :)

    Version 0.3 is out now! I was able to get buttons and levers working on pistons. The usefulness of a button on a piston is limited, but it would've been more work to remove the possibility.

    I just uploaded Version 0.4. It allows levers on top of pistons(don't know why I didn't think of that earlier), and includes generalized protection support so protections enforced by plugins other than WorldGuard will be respected.

    Hi, could you add support for redstone on pistons, so if the redstone is activated the piston is activated too? That would be great!

    I'm not sure I get what you're saying. Isn't this how pistons work already?

    No, I mean that you can put redstone directly on the piston if it is directed to the side or down.

    Oh, I see. Not sure about this, I'll have to look into it.

    This doesn't appear to work with plugins that change the functionality of pistons. With both the PistonChest and BlockCrusher plugins, using levers attached to the sides of pistons will still cause the piston to extend, but it will not cause the functionalities of the other plugins to be triggered. Could you look into this?

    How about you add support for redstone torches?
  16. Offline


    Probably doable, but I can't think of a scenario where that would be useful.

    Now that I think about it, you're probably right. XD

    I took a look at the source of PistonChest and the issue is with PistonChest, not this plugin. It looks like pistonchest (and possibly other piston plugins) only triggers when the piston is triggered by redstone or a repeater. Looking at the source it does nothing if the piston is triggered by a button or lever.

    What does a button or lever do for a furnace?

    Nothing directly, but for visual effect, or coupled with other plugins (maybe the redstone would place something into the furnace?), it could be useful.

    I made a new plugin called ManySmallTweaks that includes the functionality in this plugin, plus a bunch more fun tweaks. Work on this plugin will no longer continue. To get the new plugin, go here: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/manysmalltweaks/

    Great idea. I'll definitely add that to the next release of ManySmallTweaks.
