    Massband in Action (open)

    Massband in action:


    Counting Blocks with Version 2.6.4:


    Just right-click with a wood sword (default Item, see 'Config file') at a Block.

    There are three mods: (see below)
    • Simple mode (default)
    • Lenght mode
    • Surface mode
    In default, the Measuring Tape ignores the hieght.

    To measure the hieght of something just use the command '/mb 3D'
    (see 'Command list').

    With '/mb l' you get the lenght of the last measure. (even after '/mb clr')

    Simple mode:

    Just right-click with a wood sword (default Item, see 'Config file') at a Block.
    After the second right click at an other Block the Measuring Tape starts to measure the route
    between the two points (direct way) and rests all Points, so you can start a new measure between to new Points.

    Length tool:

    To measure a long way, with corners, select the lenght tool mit '/mb lm' nd right-click with a wood sword (default Item, see 'Config file') like in Simple mode
    When you right-click a 3rd time at a Block, the Measuring Tape adds the route between the second and the 3rd point, to the current route, and so on ...

    To start a new measure, enter the command '/mb clr'

    Surface tool:

    To measure a Surface, select the surface tool with '/mb sm' and right-click with
    a wood sword (default Item, see 'Config file') two times on to diferent Blocks.
    You will get the dimensions of the Area (or in 3D mode, of the cuboid).
    Now you can count the Block in the Area (or cuboid) wit '/mb cb'.
    It will returns the count of all Blocks exept Air.
    (see 'Massband in Action')

    Command list (open)

    Command list:
    • /massband, /mb - Displays a short help message
    • /massband, /mb clr - clear Clears all measuring points
    • /massband 2D, /mb 2D - Changes the mode to 2D
    • /massband 3D, /mb 3D - Changes the mode to 3D
    • /massband simplemode, /mb sim - Select the simple measuring tool
    • /massband lengthmode, /mb lm - Select the length measuring tool
    • /massband surfacemode, /mb sfm - Select the surface measuring tool
    • /massband stop, /mb stp - Interrupt Block-counting ...
    • /massbans stopall, /mb all - Interrupts all running Block-countings
    • /massband length, /mb l - Returns the last measured length
    - Surface-mode ---------------------------------------

    • /massband dimensions, /mb d - Returns the dimensions of the cuboid
    • /massband countBlocks, /mb cb - Returns the count of Blocks in a cuboid, exept air.
    • /massband expand, /mb ex <<amount> <up|down>|vert> - expands the selection in the given direction. (vert = from bottom to the top)
    • /massband blockList [page], /mb bl [page] - Returns a list of all Blocks in th cuboid
    Note: The command-short-forms are configurable in the config-file ...

    The command '/massband stopall' works also at the console.

    Config-file (open)

    Config file:
    ItemID: 268
    ItemName: wood-sword
    UsePermissions: false
    #This can infect the Server performance ...
    BlockCountingSpeedLimit: true
    #Command short-forms ...
    ClearCommand_ShortForm: clr
    LenghtCommand_ShortForm: l
    DimensionsCommand_ShortForm: d
    CountblocksCommand_ShortForm: cb
    LengthmodeCommand_ShortForm: lm
    SurfacemodeCommand_ShortForm: sfm
    SimplemodeCommand_ShortForm: sim
    ExpandCommand_ShortForm: ex
    StopCommand_ShortForm: stp
    StopallCommand_ShortForm: all
    BlockListCommand_ShortForm: bl
    Defines the Item which is used for Right-clicking. Default: wood sword

    Defines the Name of the Item. (used for the Help Msg)

    Defines whether to use Permissions, if detected.

    Set a speed limit for the Block-counting
    If false the Server counts with the full speed (about 500000 Blocks per second) and
    the Server performance is maybe a litle slow
    If true there is a speed-limit and the server counts slower (about 1000 Blocks per second) so it
    would not infect the server permormance.

    Set the short-form for the command 'xxxx'

    Permissions (open)

    Permission Nodes:
    #You can use Massband
    #Your are able to stop alle runnging Block-countings
    Note: everyone can use the Plugin if no Permission-Plugin is installed. (exept stoping all threads, need op in this case)

    mhm the Sever calculates it, This is a Problem ...

    I try to change this ...

    EDIT: amounts of over 100'000 Blocks will be counted under 1 sec.

    EDIT 2: In the next Version (1.6.4) the countBlocks algorytmus will run in a seperat thread,
    so the server will not hang while counting ...

  3. Wow that is amazing work. I am definately getting this
  4. Offline


    thx :D

    I Upload a dev-build of the upcoming Version 2.6.4
    I would be pleased if you can test it for me :)

    Go into the surface-mode by using the command '/mb sm'.
    After that switch into the 3D-Mod with '/mb 3D'
    than make a (very big) selection (about over 4000000 Blocks)
    and than let it count with '/mb cb'

    While counting please test the server performance with other commands, teleporting, chating, ...

    Thanks for Testing ...

    EDIT: Stop counting by reload all plugins with '/reload all' (you must be op)
    In Version 2.6.4 there will be an seperat command for that

    you know the since 2011 existing plugin doing mostly the same and leightwight "MeasuringTape"? ;)
    what is this doing better?
  6. Offline


    'MeasuringTape' is also a good Plugin, but in my opinion, the handling of my Plugin is easier.
    Problems that i found, are: The distance measuring returns a wrong length between the ponits (always + 1 is right , I think) ...
    and it hasn't the Block counting feature and you can not change the Item wich is used for;)

    Also, it is better to have an alternative to something.
    But you can use that Plugin wich you are finding better ... :)

    EDIT: My Plugin exist also since Jan 2011 but I doesn't make it aviable on bukkit ... till May 2011

    A new Update came out :D (2.6.4)

    I add a few new commands and moves the Block-counting in a new Thread,
    so the Server doesn't hang completely while counting ...
  8. hey, this plugin is very advanced. do you think there could be a simple mode? so you just right click 1 point with the tool, and right click the next, and it will tell you the distance and reset, rdy to measure between 2 new points
  9. Offline


    yeah, I think about that before but don't implemet it yet.
    Will be in the next Version

    Added with Version 2.6.5

    So a new Version is out!
    Version 2.6.5 :)
    • ADD: simple mode
    Thanks to po5

    have fun with my Plugin

    Could you please make the commands configurable.
    /mb lm conflicts with a MobBounty command, and i cant change it in MobBounty either
  11. Offline


    You can use the original command(/mb lm is the short form): /massband lengthmode or /mb lenthmode
    but I can make an option so you can configure the short forms of the commands :D
