    RadioBeacon - build radio towers, navigate to them using compasses!
    Version: 1.2.5

    Help your players find each other or other places of interest by building radio towers, broadcasting signals to be picked up by anyone within range and the proper equipment.

    Works great on "random spawn point" (solitude/apocalypse) themed servers.

    • Uses existing in-game items (iron blocks, bars, compasses)
    • No commands or client mods needed
    • Antennas continuously transmit, larger antennas transmit further
    • Message can be included in transmissions
    • Tune compasses to received transmission, navigate to the source
    • High-performance and light-weight implementation
    • Receive transmissions even if chunk is unloaded
    • Antennas are affected by weather
    • Relay antennas for retransmitting messages
    • Multi-world aware

    BukkitDev page - includes full documentation, additional screenshots, source code

    Love the idea - It's fantastic. But, I can't get rid of any radio towers. Destroying the antenna, deleting the redstone power, destroying the block itself and covering where it was with obsidian - it still broadcasts. Reload, restart, nothing. I can't even do it by deleting the contents of the antennas.yml. It just re-instates the antennea. Get this- I even deleted the plugin folder - they STILL boradcasted. It was a nightmare. It's a shame , I really wanted to use this plugin.
