    Thanks To jamescosten!

    Ill Add Some Photos and videos later on.

    Updated FlowControl. Water Can Now Be Canceled In all Directions!

    Slight Issue. if you dig a 5x5 hole then have a 3x3 water source controlled by the switch it will turn off all the water in all directions. but on enable of the switch, only the north/east/south/west works. ill correct that.

    Very Good News Though! i was able to fix that issue of the water not fully stopping. after adding the extra faces it seem to of stopped the water completely like it should. now you can go back to your auto farms :D

    Gotta thank you for keeping this and the other one alive. I had been wanting to use these recently, specifically this one, as it seems to work better than the other. Just caught this one at the top of the list. Good fortune, I suppose.

    Updated my server but it still doesn't work. Maybe it's interrupted with an other mod?

    I would really like to use this mod. Are there any known problems with other mod's ??

    Could you please help me to find out what the problem is? Which infos do you need?

    ok i need Cb Version and your whole plugin list.

    It works now. A other mod interrupted this one. But don't ask me which on, because i deleted about 10 mods.
    So now it works great on Minecraft 1.5.01 beta with 740 bukkit. Thx for your offered help.
  19. Hey, just tried this - I used to use it a while ago, but since it wasn't updated, I had to abandon - anyway, its nice to see it working again - and fixed properly (well, for me anyway).
    ....... many thanks for keeping this alive.

    maybe you can make this work for sand too? when the redstone is turned off it will make the sand adjacent to the redstone block fall? for making small sand traps?

    Well i was thinking about Trying to Create a Feature for this that would Definitly Make this Great for Auto Farms.

    My Idea is when you start the water it would Harvest the Wheat but when i wuld switch it off it would some how plant seeds. wonder if its possible...

    so if i was to do this i would have to add permissions and Maybe even Iconomy...

    But to orangize this plugin so it doesnt interfere and cause issues. i would have to make this feature turn on/off

    Flow Control Farm-
    /FC on
    /FC off
    Off would allow the switch go back to normal. only block/allow water flow

    So Wheat Farms:

    /FC Wheat On
    /FC Wheat Off

    I will only and hopefully create this for seeds becuase it sounds more realistic * more Feasable*.
    But also in the coding i could also change the way it Blocks the water when the flow is canceled... Currently its set for AIR. i could change it to SEED but then it would only plant seeds one block in front of the water... so then after it grows fully you would turn on the water and it would harvest it...

    this is only an idea. give me your thoughts and suggestions.

    Awesome plugin. With this and Quantum Circuits, I made a functioning "lock" thing that let a user ride down a canal to a button and press it, which caused water to come down on the user's boat, and made the water stop flowing again after 30 seconds. Only problem is, the water doesn't stop flowing all the way down when the source stops flowing. It gets 9/10 of the way down, then just sits there. Help please? D:
    The door and sign at the bottom are supposed to be out of the water when it stops flowing, but there's this big chunk of water that isn't supposed to be there.

    Edit: The water went down after I left for a few minutes and came back. And now it seems to be going down very slowly. Weird. :confused:

    Very Odd. is it possible for you to make a video?Also Could i get CB Version? and maybe a plugins list?

    EDIT: Heres The Thing. Quantum Circuits is not at CB766, So there might be an issue. but ill try and replicate what your talking about :D

    Oh, fail. I forgot to include the versions. I'm running CB 740 and Flow Control 0.0.4. Actually, the fact that I'm running an old version of the plugin is probably the reason why it's not working properly. Whenever I have the time to update stuff, someone's always on my server, and I don't want to bug them with downtime. :p I'll update and see if that fixes this issue.

    Edit: Okay, this is really weird. All of a sudden, it stopped having this issue and works normally now. Strange.

    Powered redstone seems odd, watch the movie:

    yes i know, its still happening ill have to fix this also :mad:. But wait before i go and change any codes of mine. What CB Version are you using? also could i get a plugins list... this plugin has issues with other water/redstone plugins.

    any way you could make this with permissions ... or fork it with permissions ... so that the water/lava will only stop if someone with the right node flipped the switch? is that even possible? or maybe make it so only those with the permissions can activate the switch to begin with ....
  29. Offline


    why? it works fine without needing permissions lol.
    Well im thinking it maybe from Craftbook and FalseBook. They Both have Water Control Features...When i have time after adding the new features to craftinglog ill do some testing :D

    not if you don't want guests and other people messing with a complex water system you setup ... it doesn't

    the only way to protect it now is to make it a region and set the flags to not allow the use of the switch or the destruction of the switch, redstone, etc .... if I want to allow higher ranks but not others to setup their own systems, this is a nightmare! we'd have to region each one
