    Description:
    Allows you to fall (or climb) from one world into another world by catching players that enter a y-coordinate that isn't in the normal range of play (or otherwise defined). With the addition of skyland environments, this plugin can be used to stop players from falling indefinitely, and instead make them drop in another world at the same x and z coordinates.

    Recent Fixes!For Version 1.04 & dev0.5

    - dev0.4 includes fixes for Exceptions casuesd by minecarts and mobs through Inception
    - dev0.4 allows mobs to not die by passing through Inception
    - dev0.4 includes a MAJOR fix fir a bug that occurred in 1.04 that rewrote parts of the config.yml, assuming there was none there (when there may have been).
    - .jar by itself will auto-generate a config.yml if none are detected :) Hooray!
    - New Developer API shtuff. I'll make a tab regarding info on it later tonight.
    - Bug fixes
    - More bugs
    - Mobs can now technically pass through inception layers IF they fall into a void. Working on this to fix it so it synchronizes with the set limits
    - Minecarts should be able to Inception
    - Boats should be able to pass through Inception layers
    - Console will yell at you more when you mess up stuff in the Inception config.yml, so I won't have to.
    - New command ./inception edit
    - And more stuff!



    Old Fixes!For Version 1.02delta & 1.03

    - Added options for syncing time in all worlds (this only works if time movement is normally enabled in a world type, and for that world)
    - Inception returns more information to the console on start up
    - The ground work for different fall damage has been laid, not Implemented Yet!
    - The config file is more forgiving and lets you use lower case in the environment type ;)
    - Fixed player getting pushed through stairs on inception (or half-blocks)
    - Fixed player getting stuck in the ground (100% success rate in testing, let me know if results differ)

    - Fixed player positioning on Inception being off a couple blocks x,z
    - Config editing commands now reload Inception upon completion automagically (no feedback)
    - Foreign worlds as a 'lowerWorld' aren't stubborn assholes any longer.

    - Fixed teleport looping
    - Fixed chunks being deleted in dynamicOverlapping
    - Colored blocks now reflect properly through an overlap
    - Block facing through dynamicOverlapping is fixed
    - Block facing through standard overlapping is ish-fixed. but not really.
    - Syncing of linked worlds by their spawns is added as an option in the config.yml
    - The exclusion of certain block types the are mirrored in an overlap is added as an option in
    the config.yml​
    - Water and lava pouring through an inception layer behaves more correctly
    - Inception passes priority of world creation with 'environment: null'
    - And other fixes

    ---------------------------------------------

    Installation:
    Download the .zip and throw the contents into your plugins folder. Be sure to configure the config.yml file in the Inception folder or the plugin will fail! If updating from a previous version: Don't delete your old config.yml and expect a new one to generate! Use the new config.yml that is in the new version folder unless otherwise specified.

    Then, read the 'Setup' tab below for Detailed instrutions on the setup of Inception. For those new to the plugin, I don't suggest changing any values for anything outside of defining the worlds and environments for a single link. After you have the motion of Inception down, tweak the setting and add more links as you see fit.

    Setup (open)

    #Inception - Written By Lihad @ beyondminecraft.net

    ----- Using Inception
    Before using this plugin, be sure to backup your world files and etc. Inception has the potential to rewrite entire landscapes! Tread carefully.

    ----- The Initial Setup
    Download the latest .zip, or the one that suits your CB. And place the contents into your plugin folder.

    Be sure to modify the config.yml for Inception before the initial launch, it should look something like this to start:

    Code:
    inception:
        link0:
            worldUpper:
                worldName: renameme
                environment: RENAMEME
            worldLower:
                worldName: renameme
                environment: RENAMEME
            overlap: true
            enableFall: true
            enableClimb: true
            upperLimit: 128
            lowerLimit: 0
            overlapDepth: 5
    [INDENT=1]sync: false[/INDENT]
    
    autoInception: false
    fallDamage: false
    glassStep: true
    dynamicOverlapUpperToLower: false
    dynamicOverlapLowerToUpper: false
    exemptBlockID: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
    - Setting up your first link!
    Under link0, the options below exist:
    Code:
            worldUpper:
                worldName: renameme
                environment: RENAMEME
            worldLower:
                worldName: renameme
                environment: RENAMEME 
    Fill in the world you want to be top world in the worldName slot for the worldUpper key, as well as the environment type (most foreign world types created by other plugins are NORMAL in origin). The three main world types are NETHER, NORMAL, and SKYLANDS. Follow the same idea for the worldLower key, by adding in the world that you want to be 'below' your top. If your using another plugin to supply a foreign world type, use 'null' as the environment type and inception will pass priority to the corresponding plugin.

    Note: If you write the name of a world in either worldName slot that doesn't already exist, Inception will attempt to create it of the type Environment that you have specified.

    - Setting up your local link variables!
    Within link0, you will also see these options:
    Code:
            overlap: true
            enableFall: true
            enableClimb: true
            upperLimit: 128
            lowerLimit: 0
            overlapDepth: 5
    [INDENT=1]sync: false
    [/INDENT]

    Each does something different, set to maximize the performance you wish to get out of inception. 'enableFall' and 'enableClimb', if set to True, will allow your users to pass from the lower world to the upper world by climbing, as well as passing to the lower world from the upper world by falling. If you wish a player to only be able to fall from the upper world to the lower, but not climb back up, turn 'enableClimb' to false.

    To specify the 'y' coordinates that the inception between worlds takes place, define the values under upperLimit and lowerLimit. Once a player crosses this threshold, they will be beamed away to the other world.

    The 'overlap' is a tool used for those who wish to make their worlds seem to flow together. By turning 'overlap' to true, you are saying that the bottom and top of the worlds will share anything placed or destroyed by a user, within the distance specified by 'overlapDepth'. Thus, with an overlap depth of '5', y-coordinates 1,2,3,4 and 5 of the worldUpper will be shared with y-coordinates 123,124,125,126 and 127 of worldLower. Note: The transfer through normal overlapping will only work for blocks that are placed and destroy while the plugin is running.

    Also note that with overlapping, your lower and upper limits for said link must be equal in spacing. This is new to Version 1.o1.

    Lastly, turning 'sync' to true will line the linked worlds up by their spawns, instead of their x,z coordinates.

    - Creating More than One Link
    To create a second link, simply copy the entire link0:, and paste it under itself, renaming the new copy 'link1'. It would look something like this:
    Code:
        link0:
            worldUpper:
                worldName:
                environment:
            worldLower:
                worldName:
                environment:
            overlap: true
            enableFall: true
            enableClimb: true
            upperLimit: 128
            lowerLimit: 0
            overlapDepth: 5
    [INDENT=1]sync: false[/INDENT]
        link1:
            worldUpper:
                worldName:
                environment:
            worldLower:
                worldName:
                environment:
            overlap: true
            enableFall: true
            enableClimb: true
            upperLimit: 128
            lowerLimit: 0
            overlapDepth: 5
    [INDENT=1]sync: false
    [/INDENT]

    And of course, be sure to add the worlds you want to be involved in the new inception link, as well as changing/modifying any of your new local variables.

    - The Global Variables
    Code:
    autoInception: false
    fallDamage: false
    glassStep: true
    dynamicOverlapUpperToLower: false
    dynamicOverlapLowerToUpper: false
    exemptBlockID: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
    These keys should only appear once in your config, and should be outside any keys. They are your global variables. 'fallDamage' is pretty obvious in wht it accomplishes.

    'autoInception', if turned to true, will have Inception automatically link all of your worlds for you in the standard manner (no overlap, limits at 0 and 128). This completely ignores any links you have specified. Very much the lazy-persons Inception tool.

    'glassStep' Is used for those who are travelling up to skylands and dont have a block to step on, or get caught in pesky inception loops. Turning this to true will give your user something to stand on when climbing up.

    'dynamicOverlap...' if turned on... be prepared for the shear power of inception to show itself. For every link that you have where 'overlap' is turned to 'true',. dynamic overlapping will take a snapshot (of height defined in 'overlapDepth') of a players current surroundings and places them in the world they are going to. Allows for EXTREMELY seamless transfer.... also has the potential to rewrite sections of worlds.

    'exemptBlockID' is any block id you wish to not be overlapped in an overlap layer.

    Only For Op

    Known Bugs (open)

    - Not Setting the config file correctly can cause weird things to happen
    - If a server's flymod catch is turned on, this can lead to players being kicked mid-transfer
    - Block facing is not always correct through overlapping
    - Signs don't overlap well
    - Chests don't overlap well
    - There may or may not be an issue with looping world Inceptions between two worlds that of Normal and Nether types. This has been known to cause issues with deleting chunks and etc. This issue is set for resolve in the next 1.02 release.
    will add more bugs to this section as they are noted and posted.

    EDIT:
    Given how unpolished 0.9bravo is, im not going to actually release it in my main post, but instead leave it here for those that would like it. While I was at work thinking about this testing version of a release I just put out there for you all to you, I could help but wonder if it was such a good idea. lol. That being said, it isn't a bad release, just really hard for someone new to the plugin to wrap their head around possibly and really easy to mess up a lot of things in your world real quick.
    At any rate. If you do feel comfortable using inception, and want to give it a whirl, please do. Im using it on my main server and love the reflections between worlds that it adds with the live update of the normal overlap as well. The thing is just cool!
    But I am going to work out a priority system for the dynamicOverlapping perhaps... while still trying to keep it simple and straight forward.... I don't know if that is possible.

    Anyways...

    END EDIT
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Alright everyone... got an interesting new version for you all
    Version 0.9bravo

    Yah... I got no idea where I'm going with these version numbers.... haha. But I know as long as I keep changing overlapping around, I want it to be a '0.9' release..... so here is Bravo!

    You can either update to the new config file or o.9bravo will add the new option 'dynamicOverlap' for you upon first running the .jar.

    New Additions:
    -Dynamic Overlapping... or so I call it. Instead of just the standard form of overlap that only reflects what you have placed/destroyed while the plugin was loaded (meaning a lot of your towers haven't been reflected very well), dynamic overlapping takes your general surrounding when you under-go an Inception and relays it onto the next world.... creating a much more solid (and dangerous) form of overlap. Using this with overlap quantities such as '15' will make for some pretty bad ass overlaps with dynamic turned on. Try it out, but use with caution... as those waterfalls/lavafalls falling out of the skyworld will reflect down.

    READ BEFORE USING dynamicOverlap! ---- BE VERY CAREFUL!!!!!
    The picture that Dynamic Overlapping captures through an inception takes the surroundings of where your coming from and layers it into where you are going to! If you have a badass tower in a 'normal' world and nothing but sky in your 'skyworld' ... and you decide for your first dive with dynamicOverlap on to be from the skyworld to the normal world, right over your tower.... prepare to have any part of your tower that was on the overlap layer disappear!!!!!!!!

    ALWAYS BE SURE TO MAKE AN INCEPTION WITH dynamicOverlap ONLY IF YOU WANT TO COPY WHAT YOU'RE COMING FROM TO WHERE YOU ARE GOING!!!!

    I can't stress that enough.

    Well, I gotta get to work, I will post in the main later. Please use this with respect! It does amazing things but only if you treat her right!

    Notable Other Fixes:
    -Setting a lowerY less than '0' no longer causes issues. Hooray!

    You need to enable allow-flight in server.properties. Usually getting kicked for flying is due to lag, since the server expects you to be in one place when your in another and so it kicks you for what it thinks it detects as flying.

    Given how unpolished 0.9bravo is, im not going to actually release it in my main post, but instead leave it in that forum post just a few above this one for those that would like it. While I was at work thinking about this ugly version of a release I just put out there for you all to use, I couldn't help but wonder if it was such a good idea in its current state. lol. That being said, it isn't a bad release, just really hard for someone new to the plugin to wrap their head around and really easy to mess up a lot of things in your world real quick.

    *High Five* This should be fixed in the 0.9bravo release a couple posts above this one. The link for 0.9bravo isn't in the main post, and I doubt I'll ever put it up there. So if you would like it, please read that post above and take it! :)

    Lihad

    @WFXD : Use something like WorldEdit or a superaxe in another plugin. Or alternatively turn the 'lowerY' in the config.yml to something like '10' . That'll do it.

    10 worked just fine. Fortunately for me, the people on my server aren't too good with computers. I am just making stairways to each world for them.

    Any possibility you could integrate permissions, so only privileged players can climb or fall into the next world?

    (You should probably make it configurable and off by default so no one ends up screwing up their setup with an upgrade.)

    Got me confused as well, but they're just worldnames.
    Code:
    inception:
      link0:
          worldUpper: skyland
          worldLower: world
          overlap: true
    The random part ist because there are two links both connecting to world 'BeyondHorizon'

    Lihad


    Yah, thats referring to a fix that was made in a earlier version. It is rather confusing just sitting there ... Just know, if you are linking one world as an upperWorld in multiple links, and go through an inception, you have a random chance to enter any of the connected lowerWorlds.

    Updating to 0.9charlie soon. More stuff to do with overlapping and some other features as well... Stay tuned.

    I need some help, i'm trying to set up a world with Space on top, normal world in the middle and nether at the bottom, this stuff really confuses me and i'd love it if anyone showed me how the config file for that setup would be.
    I'm also getting that huge "PLAYER_MOVE" error list and i also get masses of errors when i try to place or remove a block.
    Installed multiverse as i was told it would fix these errors but i'm not sure how to set it up correctly with Inception.

    I'd appreciate some help thanks!

    Nevermind, managed to fix it, just having problems with dying in space then the server gotta be restarted

    I added a setup spoiler link in the main post. Hope that helps you new inception users to use the plugin :)

    Just want to chip in that it works great on my server. However, I have a relatively simple setup. Just two pairs of sky/normal worlds with overlapping. So I can't say what happens if you were to fall from nether into sky which falls randomly into itself or a normal world which only goes up into the nether world or anything silly like that.

    Would you make a video of this? I'd like to see it in action.

    Crazy Inception Worlds... makes my head hurt. lol. Great to hear you have it working well! If you choose to try out dynamic overlapping in the 'unofficial' 0.9bravo release, let me know :)

    I was just thinking about making a tutorial video on my home today! Planning on doing one with the 1.0 release :)
