    Download The Plugin v 0.7c- CraftBukkit 677
    Download The Plugin v 0.7b- CraftBukkit 617-740
    Download The Plugin v 0.7a- CraftBukkit 617-670
    Download The Plugin v 0.7 - CraftBukkit 617
    Download The Plugin v 0.5 - CraftBukkit 617
    Download The Plugin v 0.4 - CraftBukkit 612
    Download The Plugin v 0.2 - CraftBukkit 602
    Download The Plugin v 0.1 - CraftBukkit 522-556

    Source Code is in the jar File

    Create house Files in plugins/Housedeeds like the demo
    The endings of the house files needs to be houses
    Configfile needs:


    Housename is the Name the House is named ingame
    Tagsize defines the x/y Size of the Tag, that has to be built to get a House
    Tag defines the Data in Blocks. Tag allways needs a Torch, which Fires up the Build of the House
    Housesize defines the Size of the House in x/y and height
    For each height we define a Floor. This means a house with height 5 has Floor1-5
    Floor1-X defines the Data x*y tiles to be placed. Check the Example..

    The Housedeeds.yml File is unused so far.

    Config Files may be built from within the game by the following Steps:

    1.) Build your Structure
    2.) Get the Size
    3.) Find the Lowest Corner of it (Coords F3)
    4.) Place a Sign in the Lowest Corner with the following Text:
    Line 1 : [deed]​
    Line 2: <deedname>​
    Line 3: <size x,y,h>​


    Means that the deed gets called FishingHouse.house -> in the plugin/Housedeeds Directory​
    The Structure will be 12 x 12 with a heigth of 4.​

    The Measure starts next to the Sign, the Line of the Sign does not get deeded.​
    5.) Right Click the Sign to make the housedeed file.
    6.) Edit the File and insert a valid Tagsize and Tag.
    7.) Reload the Plugin and place your newly Created Deed.

    or via Command:
    • /deed -> list options
    • /deed create deedname <posx,posy,posz> <sizex,sizey,sizez>
    • /deed use deedname <posx,posy,posz>
    You need Permission housedeeds.admin or OP to do so.


    Happy Deeding
    Will add a Video later

    We have a lot of Plugins. One is FalseBook it provides us with powered Pumpkins ;-) so you can Switch on / off the whole Area with one Switch.

    Where does the check for space originate from when you place a tag? I've got an 8x8 space I'm trying to lay a tag down for, (the smalltower.house posted here earlier) but I keep getting told I do not have enough room. I've tried placing the tag in the SW corner of the lot, in the appx middle, etc, but can't figure out where it wants to measure or originate from.

    Hi there,
    The Tag has to be in the mid of the Area.
    The Area has to be:
    • Flat (No Holes and Spaces in It)
    • No Other things likes Blocks or Leaves or Trees
    • No Torches or Whatever
    • The Area has to be at least 1 Bigger then the House -> We need to warp the Player out of the Way ;-)
    • The Area also includes the Height of the House
    If you match all this criterias it will work. as the Tower uses 8,7,9 i guess you should make a field of at least 9x9 and hit the center with the torch.

    Odd, I made my plot 9x9, there are 11 available height above it before the absolute ceiling, and the torch is being placed at exactly the '5,5' spot within the plot, yet it still tells me not enough room.

    Would it be possible to change the origination to one of the corners? I expanded my plot to 9x10, and now I can get it to generate, however, I've created the tower 3 times now and the entrance keeps facing the undesired direction. I would think placing the tag in the SW or SE corner of the plot would help in measurement, and also you could assume the entrance would also be facing S. (Directions relative to the plot of course)

    The build is exactly the deeded stuff. You can make 4 deeds with a tag asymetric. Maybe leave the door open on the tag.

    So am I understanding correctly then, a deed defines which direction the structure will face?
  16. Offline

    Thomas Bucher

    Nope. But if you make Tags, that are not symetric, you can make 4 deeds. For every Direction one.
    If you make 4 Deeds with the "same" buiding in
    different directions, you can make have the "same"
    Tag for for those. Means if you have the Tag open
    on one side, you can have the entrance there.

    In other words. You make 4 deeds with 4 tags.
    For the user it will look like that there where
    he wants the entrance he places the "special" block in the Tag
    and he gets the deed matches the entrance there.

    This makes no Sence in any way.. Sorry..
    1.) There is just Air to be placed.
    2.) Tagsize and Tag doesnt match.

    Floor is the thing that will be placed
    Tag is what you need to start it
    Tagsize of 10,10 means a tag 10x10 pieces.. means tag need 100 numbers.. ;-)
    try something like
    This is a Square of 8 glass with a Torch in it.
    But still you need the data (Floor 1-5) if you created this with a sign.. you should check that the sign is in the lowest corner (-200 is smaller than -100)

    Every time I have tried to make a deed mine always look like this
    #Sat Apr 16 22:15:31 MDT 2011
    TAG=REPLACE BY TAG 00,00...
    And the glass dome is the same way

    This "House" will give simply a torch.. on the lowest layer, it replace all with one single torch 50\;5
    You need to have a structure you like to deed. find the lowest Corner "Press F3" for that.
    Remeber Number with a - are less if they are bigger...

    Ok I got it to work and now when i place my skyscraper it also places the small tower inside of the building.
    I removed it for the list to see what happend and the stone house was built in it insted.
    They have the same 3,3 tag size but they each have different tags.

    Thomas Bucher

    Is it possible, that if the first one gets build, i creates the Tag of the second one ?
    Means if you are in your construction, and remove a block on the floor, placing a torch there....

    Is there any chance of you adding iConomy support for this so it can cost money to build?

    Thomas Bucher

    There is a plugin to buy permissions "BuyAbilities".
    As you can have permission per House here, you can use "BuyAbilities" plugin for what you like todo.

    I've so far been able to avoid using permissions. I guess I can just use costly mats as tag.
