    PlgEssentials - Essential commands for Plague's server:
    Version: v5.0

    I made this plugin for my own private server to have some basic commands under control.

    As in all my plugins, you can now edit the name of commands in plugin.yml.

    This will never support any permissions system, it is aimed at people using ops.txt.
    If you want them, there is a fork called AdminCmd.

    /time day|night|dusk|dawn|<raw> OR /day
    /i OR /item (id|name) [count] [damage] [player]
    /tp (player)
    /s OR /tphere (player)
    /location OR /loc
    /c OR /color (colorid|colorname)
    /msg (player) (private message)
    /strike [player]
    /weather (off|calm|rain|snow|storm) [duration]
    /mob (name)
    /setmode (survival|creative|s|c)

    Note: the creature names for /mob are CamelCase (e.g. Chicken, PigZombie). I *have* reasons for that, sorry.

    There is no such thing as “putting a work in the public domain”, you America-centered, Commonwealth-biased individual.

    yes and its open source as well. haha.

    Where's /i and /s? /s for summon/tphere?
  8. Offline


    Well I cannot find the code in the original post or your sig.. (okay you just added it, and then you laugh? pathetic, man)

    Also General is not ported to newest craftbukkit.

    And when I started I wanted to just try making plugins (at which time I am pretty sure general was NOT open).

    Oh and for the (obviously) blind ones (looking at you Seth.D), I know there are many similar plugins (i said that in the original post). I did write it for my self and my own reasons and am putting it here for the inspirational reason mostly.

    Forgot to write that there is indeed /i. I never used /tphere that much, but will add /s, why not.

    Gah, how could I possibly miss that? Now I feel stupid. Sorry for wasting your time. :p

    Although to avoid it becoming a generic general commands plugin you should continue to update it with cool new features. I'm not sure if this is possible yet with Bukkit's current hooks and events, but it would surely make this plugin a standout if you put an infinite day/night toggling command reminiscent of TimeRift for hMod. :D
  10. Uhm, no? The project has ALWAYS been on GitHub. That's where the source code was available. Even if he forgot to add the link for the most recent version, it was still available publicly on GitHub. Stop insulting people if you're the one who's clueless. ;-)

    Yes it is.

    So yeah, it's OK that there are other plugins - you made it clear this one is mostly for reference/learning purposes. Just don't spread misinformation about other people's work. ;-)

    Apology Accepted! :p

    I don't really aim to stand out and I know that General has more features, I'm not really trying to beat it or anything. This is for my own server for me and a few friends. The good thing about it is that i know the code and when Notch updates and Bukkit (hopefully) with it, I will not have to wait for other people to get it done. That's really the main reason for me.

    Well unless the author states explicitly where the sources are, the plugin is closed-source. He didn't even state the license.
    Or do you think that if I find sources to Windows Drivers on the net they are OSS?

    Edit: formatting
  12. He was always staying where the sources are, he just updated the plugin version and swallowed the link. Stop complaining. -.-

    Whatever, I was searching the thread when I started making my own plugin, so I don't think I was that blind. But that's now what this thread should be about, there is the "Why release closed source plugins" in Offtopic for this ;)

    New version avalable - /s alias for /tphere, colored chat names, better name matching in /tp and /s.

    Anyone read this title as Pig Entrails?
  16. Offline


    Hmm a plugin for pigs to not only drop meat? :D

    can you put in /help I want something a bit better and simple, like hey0's /help you.good work.
  18. Offline


    Help could clash with other plugins providing help...

    how are permissions for teleporting and whatnot, things you wouldn't give your default users, handled?
  20. Offline


    They're not and are not going to be unless there is a permission support in bukkit. As this is primarily a plugin for me and a few friends on our "creative" server, there is no need for it.

    Can you make the item <name> now?? Please

    I saw 'PigEssentials'

    I did not find a way to use a bukkit function for material names, so I would have to use my own database file, like General does and that's what I really don't want to do.

    That is pity, and there is really no other way?

    Voxel Box

    Plague~ I (plusnine) am very interested in seeing your server sometime if that's possible. I love that you guys are developing pluins in-house like we are, and would welcome the opportunity to see what you & george are doing and what your approach is.
  26. Offline


    Oh George is a developer of another plugin that was looking for a way to change leaves, that's eeverything I know about him :D

    As for my server it is just for me and my friend, no mobs, no animals, just creation, I also do not have any permissions in place, but I could temporarily put you on a whitelist or something.

    could you set up permissions for this?

    I really don't have a use for them on my private server, but if anybody would like to code them in, I'll post both version here (or of course anybody can just use my code in a new plugin).

    I think the format you are running your server under is nothing sort of an example of excellence, and a level of achievement all minecraft servers should strive towards. I have a number of players who are excellent builders and make awesome epic creations in no time flat. And then I have other players who insist on building "eyesores" on the map. I really like your Daro concept... I had something similar in place originally, but with the recent restructuring of all of the mods and the conversion over to bukkit I unfortunately lost tons of work and customization on my server. In the mean time I have found it necessary to downsize to a single world until stuff settles a bit. (as it seems to be starting to do.)

    I look forward to creating some vast oceans once your Voxel Sniper plugin is fully ported


    Don't be discouraged with people's comments regarding duplication of other plugins functionality. Personally I have been struggling with finding a plugin that truely fits my needs of a set of simple / yet secure-able set of basic commands. The fact that your plugin DOES NOT include a help function is a HUGE win in my opinion. I spent a lot of time creating custom help menus that are nicely colorized using MCDocs... using a plugin that precludes my own customized help is a huge downer.

    Huge respect to both of you!
