    Glowstone Lanterns - Make glowstone lanterns, daytime glass & nighttime glowstone

    The Glowstone Lanterns project page has been moved. Go to one of the two pages bellow to get to the Glowstone Lanterns project page, with the newest download available:
    You can view the original page in the spoiler bellow. It's highly recommended to visit one of the above sites, to view the up-to-date pages.
    Original Page (open)

    With this plugin Glowstone Lanterns you can make lanterns, when it's going dark the glass of the lanterns will change in glowstone and when it's daytime it will change in glass again. The great thing is that you don't need to place a full lantern but only a glass/glowstone block, so you can use it for everyting. This plugin is very usefull for a large city to light it up, that looks really cool that the lanterns will change in glowstone! You can also place prebuilt lanterns, so that's really usefull if you want to plase a lot of lanterns in a little time.
    You can enable glowstone lanterns with /gl, when you place a glass or a glowstone block it is marked as a glowstone lanterns, this block will change to glowstone if it is night and to glass if it is daytime. If you use /gl l 1 you will enable prebuilt glowstone lanterns, if you place a glass or a glowstone block there will apear the prebuilt glowstone lantern you selected right there. There prebuilt lanterns are in external files, so you can make your own prebuilt lanterns and share them with other pelople.
    Note: When you haven't permissions on your server, the plugin is avaible for all the OP's

    Prebuilt lanterns are a really usefull feature in Glowstone Lanterns. You could place a prebuilt lantern by enableling the prebuilt lantern mode and then by placing a glass block or any other lantern block as your usually do with the normal lantern blocks. When you done that a lantern will spawn, for example when you place a glass block a lantern will spawn with a wooden base, a wooden fence pole and a glass/glowstone lantern on it. You could also spawn other prebuilt lanterns which could be used to hang on the ceiling for example. They are just really usefull because they will automaticly create a lantern. So the basic thing why there are prebuilt lanterns are is because you could easily create any lantern you want by only placing a glass block.

    What are prebuilt lanterns?
    Prebuilt lanterns are a really usefull feature in Glowstone Lanterns. You could place a prebuilt lantern by enableling the prebuilt lantern mode and then by placing a glass block or any other lantern block as your usually do with the normal lantern blocks. When you done that a lantern will spawn, for example when you place a glass block a lantern will spawn with a wooden base, a wooden fence pole and a glass/glowstone lantern on it. You could also spawn other prebuilt lanterns which could be used to hang on the ceiling for example. They are just really usefull because they will automaticly create a lantern. So the basic thing why there are prebuilt lanterns are is because you could easily create any lantern you want by only placing a glass block.

    The possibility of prebuilt lanterns
    You probably ask yourself what kind of prebuilt lanterns there are... There are a few build-in prebuilt lanterns, like 12 lanterns or so, which contains a lantern for the ceiling, a few lanterns to place on the ground, and even a fireplace lantern which turns on fire when its night. The possibilities are endless, you could easily create your own prebuilt lanterns and enlarge your lantern collection. You could also share your own prebuilt lanterns with other people so they could use your own created lantern.

    How do they work?
    Prebuilt lanterns are saved in seperated files (for each lantern a file) inside the 'Prebuilt Lanterns' folder inside the Glowstone Lanterns folder of your server. You could easily add another file to add other lanterns. The name of the file equals to the name of the lantern in-game

    How does the files work?
    Here I'm going to explain you how the prebuilt lantern files work so you could easily edit or make another lantern.
    In the lantern file there are different rows, every block of the lantern is on another row in the file. So if you have a lantern with contains 3 blocks your lantern file will probably have 3 rows.
    So the lanterns are saved in the file block by block. If the base block of your lantern is a wooden block you need to add a line that says that the bottom block is a wooden block, if your pole on top of it is a wooden fence you need to say that the block above that wooden block is a fence, and lastly if your lantern block above that pole is a glass block which turns into glowstone at night you need to add a line which says that that block is a lantern block which is glass when its day and glowstone when its night.
    Underneath here I'll explain how your really write this yourself.

    How to make your own prebuilt lantern file
    Here you could see an example of the lantern I was talking about, a wooden base block, a wooden pole and a lantern block on top of it.
    On every line is another block of the lantern defined, every line does look a little bit like this;
    With this example I'm going to explain how every line work.
    The first three zero's seperated with commas is the location of the current block, the first zero is the coordinate X, the seccond Y and the last Z. Those coordinates are relative, that means that 0,0,0 is the place where the player plased the glass block to place the prebuilt lantern. When you change the seccond zero to 1 that block will be above the glass block which you could set as a wooden fence block.
    The false text will tell the plugin if the current block is a lantern block, if this is set to false as shown in the example it is a regulair block, if it is set to true it's a lantern block which does mean that this block will be changed to another type of material when its going to be night.
    There are 6 more zero's behind the false text. The first and the seccond zero could be used to set the block type. So if you want to place a wooden block you need to set the first zero to 5 because the block ID of a wooden block is 5.
    If you want to make a lantern block which changed when its night you need to set true/false to true at first which indicates that that block will be a lantern block. Then you could set in the first two zero's what kind of block that lantern block will be when it's day, the third and fourth zero are the block ID and the data value of the block how it will ook like when it's night and the last two are used for the block when it's raining. With a normal block which isn't a lantern you need to set those last four zero's to 0 since they arent used because it isn't a lantern block. I hope I explaind this feature a little bit clear since it's hard to explain.
    So underneath here you'll find a little other example which shows you the thing I explained you again.
    I hope this will make it a bit more clear.
    You could also add a line with nothing on it, just a blank line to seperate two groups of blocks for example. (this doesn't affect the lantern result, its just to make it easier to read the file yourself).
    And as last thing you could also add a line which starts with the following character #, then you could type anything you want behind it. This could be used to make a comment inside the file, for example you could make a line which tells someone who looks in the file that the lantern has been made by you. Because this line will start with a # character the plugin will know that this is a comment line so it doesn't affect the lantern result. Underneath here you could also see another example.
    So here you could see you could use a line with a # character as a comment line and that you could plase a blank line anywhere in the file. As I already said a lantern which contains 3 blocks should have a file with three lines, but now you know if you place a comment or a blank line in the file the file will contain more lines.
    So one last thing, EVERY feature of the file is seperated in lines, blocks, comment lines and blank lines, you couldn't make two blocks on a single line.

    Create your first prebuilt lantern
    Now we are going to make your first prebuilt lantern. We will make a lantern which will look like this. A wooden base block, with a wooden fence pole on it. Then a lantern block on the pole which will be glass when it's day, glowstone when it's night and a jack'o'lantern when it's raining. And lastly a wooden slab on top of the lantern block. So this lantern will contain 4 blocks, three regulair blocks and 1 lantern block.
    Now open a simple text editor (notepad in windows, textedit on a mac) or any other program where you could type text in and start creating the file.
    On the first line you probably want a commant that the lantern has been made by you, for example a line like this
    Now make a blank line underneath this comment line. Then start making the blocks.
    The first block will be a wooden block (block ID = 5) on coordinate 0,0,0 since it should be on the place where the user placed the glass block, this isn't going to be a lantern block, just a regulair block so write a line like this;
    Then make the wooden pole on top of the base block (wooden fence ID = 85).
    Then make a lantern block which should be a glass block when its day, at night it should be a glowstone lantern and when it's raining a jack'o'lantern. The ID of a glass block is 20, a glowstone block 89 and a jack'o'lantern block 91. So write a line like this.
    and now the last block, the wooden slab on top of the lantern. The ID for this slab is 44 with a data value of 2, otherwise the slab will be a regulair stone slab. This is also an example for the data value usage. Now write that line like htis
    now the lantern is finished, and of course if you want to could also add some more blank lines and comment lines on the bottom, like a copyright line or something.
    Now how to save the file, open your window where you could save the file, in windows notepad you need to go to the file menu and then click Save As. Just navigate to your desktop or any other directory and name the file 'example.gllantern'. Make sure you give the file the file-extention '.gllantern' or else the plugin isn't able to open the lantern. Now just save it as 'example.gllantern' to any directory you want and close the text editor. Now navigate to the directory where you saved the file (probably your desktop as I suggested). There is your lantern file, now place that file you made in the 'Prebuilt Lanterns' folder inside the 'Glowstone Lanterns' folder inside your plugins folder of your plugin. When you done that you could start your server and start using your lantern. Please note that your lantern has been called 'example' since you saved the file with the name 'example.gllantern', if you save/rename the file to 'lantern.gllantern' the lantern will be called 'lantern'. Underneath here I will show you how to place the lantern you made.

    How to place/use your lantern?
    Now you probably made your lantern and placed it into the prebuilt lanterns directory of the plugin, if you haven't placed the lantern you want to use into that folder you aren't able to use the lantern.
    When you are in-game and when you've started your server you could use the command '/gl list lanterns' to list all the available lanterns, so the lantern you added which is probably called 'example' should be in this list too, if it is you added your lantern succesfully.
    Now use the command '/gl l <name-of-lantern>' to enable the prebuilt lantern mode with a prebuilt lantern selected. So if your lantern is called example you need to use this command '/gl l example' to enable prebuilt lanterns mode with the example lantern selected. When you have selected and enabled the prebuilt lantern mode a message should popup that you enabled this mode.
    Now select a glass block or any other block which could be used to place a lantern block or a prebuilt lantern (configurable in the config file) and place it on the ground, and your own lantern magically appears! (if your lantern doesn't appear and an error pop's up in the console you know something is wrong with your lantern file, please read this text again and try it again). Now you could easily place your own lantern anywhere you want.

    I hope you understand how everything works know, if you know how it works it;s one of the easiest things to do!
    If you still don't know how to use this, please contact me on the Glowstone Lanterns bukkit.org forum page or anywhere else so I could answer your question.
    Please also take a look at the build-in prebuilt lanterns because they could help you a lot!

    Suggestions, Ideas and bugs
    If you have a suggestion or an idea, please tell me and maybe I will add it to the plugin!
    If you found any bug please tell me I will fix it as fast as I can.

    Please donate some money so I can buy some coffee to make better plugins, I really like it if you give a donation!

    There seem to be alot of lanterns that stay stuck off or on at each cycle of day/night.
    Though when the lantern is broken the plugin responds properly.

    I think there are only about 100 gl blocks in the world so I don't think its an overload issue...

    Any ideas?

    Tim Visee

    Well this is a bukkit/minecraft server bug, everything works right but when a block was inside an unloaded chunk, or something else it wouldn't save its state, I'll try to fix this if this is possible later.

    k, thats really strange, I'm pobably going to rewrite the whole plugin soon, that probably helps but I'm not sure when I'm going to start because I need to finish other plugins and things first (probably)

    by the way u should add 2 more prebuild lantern its really sugestive to have them there

    i mean this 2 they r pretty obvious to have in my opinion

    # Prebuilt lantern 15

    85|0|0 1 0|false

    20|0|-1 3 0|true[​IMG]

    i know u can make this ones by placing 2 times lantern 1 and 2 from opposite sides
    but it would be nice to have them pre build

    even more i think u should make aside from Glownstone Lantern plugin called something like Simple Lanterns or Lamps

    that works almost just like GL
    that let u place fast and easy prebuild lamps with 1 click (lamps with normal glowstone that is glowstone 24/7)

    like im currently using ur plugin to place lamps on my server and 1 guy follows me and destroy that GL glowstone or glass (depanding is it night or day) and replace it with normal glowstone

    like hmm even more obvious name would be Lamp Assistant

    plugin that helps u put many prebuilded lamps with just 1 click

    so i can decorate places like inside of my house castle or mine (place where day or night dont matter) where i need 24/7 glowstone on

    i hope u will think about it and u understand what i just wrote my english isnt so god

    i think many ppl would like u for that kind of plugin cause they love to have plugin which help them easy and fast light certain spaces with fancy lamps/lanterns even so ppl could support ur plugin sending u their own prebuild lanterns/lamps which u could use to both plugins GL and that other one

    as im bulinding some library now on my server i was thinking about my idea what u could make from ur plugin

    and i think why just stop on lanterns/lamps ? why not pre build chairs,tables,book shelfs,sits or even farms
    why not kits like 1 click and puff furnace chest and crafting table placed at once with 1 click
    maybe pre build stairs from different blocks like not only from usual types maybe for example from fence

    think about it it could be endless possibilities and ppl sending u their pre build stuff that u can add in separate link as add on for ur plugin

    I will add those other prebuild lanterns, as I said I'll try to rewrite the whole plugin because it's sometimes a bit annoying right now, there are a few bugs.
    I'll also rewrite the prebuild lanterns file system to make better files, it should be possible to make lanterns even with pumpkins, torches and things like that, or a glold block that changes in iron to put in a shop that sais "Shop opened" or "Closed". If I write this file system and if I rewrite the whole plugin the thing with 24/7 lanterns is also fixed.
    btw, for now you could create a prebuild lantern fcalled "glowstone" or so with only one glowstone block witch doesn't change by day like this;

    # 24 7 Glowstone block
    89|0|-1 4 0|false

    just by turning the last argument to false (if you change this to true it'll make a 'real' glowstone lantern of it)

    Well, that's a great idea. I was also trying to add a system into the plugin witch could genearate a prebuild lantern file just by selecting the whole building/lantern but that wasn't finished jet and was also a little bit hard to make.

    one question. Do you mean I could put al those buildings inside this glowstone lanterns plugin?

    Have you noticed any issues when this and nolagg are used together? nolagg throws some interesting errors sometimes right before this loads on a restart and sometimes when they change from day to night. not saying it is this, just seems coincidental. the nolagg dev says its not nolaggs fault its happening, which is why im asking.

    1st of all by 24/7 lanterns i mean lanters with normal glowstone that work without ur plugin

    2nd i dont think putting all prebuild lanters to ur plugin would be good idea
    u should keep it as it is with that 14 lanterns
    i think u should make section in this post called "extra prebuild lanterns" in spoiler or something
    where u upload lanterns that was prebuild and send to u by other players under condition that player who send u his prebuild lantern need to make screen shot of it so like u just put his prebuilt lantern with screenshoot next to it so every 1 could pick which extra lanterns they want to download

    since many ppl would be satisfy by the 14 lanterns u made and there would be no point to force them to download whole plugin with tons of lanterns cause judging from ppls creativity u will get spamd by tons of prebuild ideas
    and same for the prebuild stuff like that tables chairs kits etc... if u ever will make it

    about that u generate ro should i say copy already existing structure and being able to save it to prebild file well
    there is plugin called worldedit it have option of copy and paste maybe its open code or what ever its called so u could see how they did it

    but their way of paste is stupid bit confusing cause u dont see where u paste things
    it should be like in ur plugin that the block where u place structure is the center of structure or maybe edge
    and be sure to add possibilty to undo if u could it would be nice

    about that
    just by turning the last argument to false (if you change this to true it'll make a 'real' glowstone lantern of it)

    so obvious i didnt think about it big thx :)

    ow ow and as i was just editing all lanterns to make them solid glowstone i that option in each prebuild lantern (i mean in their file) should be option at the top of file > lantern turned on : true/false where false mean it keeps glowstone 24/7 and not glass so when its on it switch to glass when its daytime or no rain

    cause from what i see now ur plugin switch glass to glowstone lanterns and not reverse
    so all alnterns by default r glass not glowston
    and if they would be glowstone switching to glass i would just edit each lantern file from true to false and i wound dont need change each ID from 20 to 89 or as i said if u add in each lantern on top option lantern on : true false
    it would be just perfect

    Yes, if you put that argument to false it aren't lanterns of this plugin anymore it are just some blocks which arent saved inside the plugin.

    I should make a site for that (I think) that will help a lot

    Well I know how to make it that Isn't to hard to make I think, but its just the way it works. and I need to program a LOT to finish this.

    When I'm going to write the new file system there should be something like this, maybe not really like this but it's easier to do.

    Well I don't know if Glowstone Lanterns causes this problem, well, I'm going to rewrite the whole plugin soon with a lot better system, this problems should be fixed when I done that, if Glowstone Lantern causes this problem of course

    a site where easy u can upload prebuild lantern with screenshot would be something cool just would be a problem how u call them

    like if i make zero lantern than u should give me option to making shortcut for it like /gl l zl

    or is it determinated by file name ? probably it is since all lanterns have numbers in file names :)

    Yes, it's the file name. Just rename the file and use /gl list lanterns to check if youre file is inside this list, if it is you could easily use /gl l zl

    Has anyone suggested powering the lantern with red stone? So you can use it like a light in a house with a lever.

    Hi, I could add a function for this but I think not for the normal glowstone lanterns, if I do it should be another type of block, I mean a block which isn't a glowstone lantern so that it doesn't changes when it's day or night. Or I could add an option inside a config file where you could set if lanterns could be turned on or of with redstone. I need to think of it :)
