    big02001 bottom line is this plugin has been posted as public I will not "buy" it for that reason. That does not mean I won't donate to the development of the project. The views on this thread have jumped exponentially in the last 24 hours so someone will grab the project eventually. That being said, I will happily donate to the development of project if need be. I do believe that if the plugin is done correctly that other would want to donate also. The idea of the plugin is great for server management or even player interaction. It can go both ways. And has not been done before.

    big02001 why would you steal someone's idea and use it for your own good ? You may say you came up with it but obviously not. very immature definitely reflects your age

    Is there a way to add in a poll to this thread so we can let see how many would like a plugin like this?

    I think I'll just make another forum post with a link to this on with a poll attached to it. I guess I'll need to find another developer to take on this project.

    ajisfree Polls on here are pretty useless anyways in my opinion.

    Also, I doubt that this idea wouldn't be liked,, Not really a need for a poll.

    Well then I won't do it and just hope for the best. I really like the idea of this plugin and wish a developer will take to it. It does not have to be much if they use a sub-plugin system. The base plugin would be the core and the sub-plugins would offer server owners more customization for their pcs in the form of modules.

    Is there any developer willing to work with me on this plugin?

    ajisfree Like I mentioned in my first post, I'd be willing to but I just don't have the time right now. If I were to start working on it now, progress would be rather slow.

    I'm just starting to learn java, but I think this is too advanced for me
     
  13. I'm on it. I'll start ASAP. Do you want it to be open source?

    big02001 *psygh* *Facephist* just... no

    Anyways, I kind of want to take this on. It seems like it would be a lot of fun to code. I already have inventory menus and scriptable NPCs implemented in another plugin of mine so I can easily port those over and that's about half the work done already. ajisfree can you just update the OP with everything that you want. Also, do you want the redstone to connect everything or would you rather have it not have to be there, it can easily be done either way.

    EDIT: Well nevermind then, I just got ninja'd by cannibalturtle87
     
  16. It'll be open source. All ya'll can help once I get the initial build up.

    You could help cannibalturtle87 with your scriptable NPC's (I use your plugin and have used the protocols)
     
  18. My current plan is to start it out wireless. You have a sign (or something) on the computer that tells the computer which hub to connect to to share data. A hub is like a wireless router, and it will be somewhat hard to create in survival mode. The hub will have an operating range, and when you are out of that range, the network connection will be lost. Connections will be "throttled" due to it being wireless. When wired connections are added, the speed will be increased by 10-20%. (The "internet speed" is just a delay in file sending by a few seconds.) Servers will host the programs. For normal computers, you will build them out of wool and stone slabs (as the pictures depict), however, you must buy an operating system (a music disc with a lore) and install that on your computer to actually use it. This allows for different operating systems to accomplish different tasks, and it keeps players from getting a computer too easily and clogging up your network. I've not decided on whether hacking should be a thing. Thoughts?

    I was thinking of calling you out for taking the idea from my plugin:p. And cannibalturtle87 you're free to look at the code from my plugins but I'm not a big fan of working with people that I have never met when I would be working on something strictly for fun (no intended profit)

    Thanks for giving the plugin a shot cannibalturtle87. As far as in depth features go like hacking, shops and other stuff. It would be nice if those we're addons so this computer plugin is more flexible for server owner. If they want it to be hack able then it can be. If they don't it won't.

    ajisfree This, in my opinion, would be any developer's dream to make! I'd love to make it if cannibalturtle87 wasn't making it already.
    big02001 I think the feeling of contributing to society for free is worth more than money can ever buy you.
    I'm sure it's possible, but, making it lightweight... that's a problem.
    Well, good luck making this cannibalturtle87.

    It's always good to have two or more people working on one project. More perspectives, better way of doing things, and if you really want to help try making an addon for this when it's done :)

  24. Okay. I've got a basic computer GUI set up. With a menu button, users program, and compose program. Each player has a unique IP address, their UUID.

    What do you plan for it to do?
     
  28. Update: Okay, I've got file sending and retrieving down. That means it's almost time for build 1 to be released. I'm just going to re-write the engine to make it look purdy.

    https://github.com/redusk/MC-Net
    Here's the github link. The code's a bit messy, but I'm making progress. Currently, you can send/receive files and create computers. Files can only be sent to players that are also using a computer. Files are either written books or book and quills.

    Kinda like windows, linux, and mac's OS. The only problem is syncing it with the "main" plugin.

    Like this for example.
    Code:java
    1. public abstract class Application {
    2. String name;
    3. ItemStack picture;
    4. public Application(String name, ItemStack picture) {
    5. this.name = name;
    6. this.picture = picture;
    7. }
    8.  
    9. abstract void onEnable(Player user);
    10. }
     
  30. I'm working on adding independent operating systems right now, which should make that a lot easier.
