    Just started to use your plugin, and was trying to find the answer but cant seem to find it...

    anyways I made a :ctime sign, and then I put:

    The lever will not change, the sign says:


    I get the msg "[Pailstone] Test Sign Accepted" but it will not react to any changes in time... If i am being a noob, i am sorry, but it is the end of a long project i have been working on :(

    Also the :weather one wont let me set it to [STORMY] it keeps going back to SUNNY no matter what i try

    Ah, that needs some explanation. You don't include any of the <'s, >'s, ['s, or ]'s on the sign.
  4. Offline


    Well... that would explain it, it was me being a noob, i assumed from the great site you made that when it says:
    [<type>] then the type would replace the <>, but not the [].

    but thank you sooooo much for the quick reply
  5. Offline


    Yeah, typically when you're reading arguments, [ ... ] denotes something that's optional. I've added a "What Does This Mean" link to every sign example explaining the whole thing.

    Thank you, sorry for making ya have to dumb down your instructions, but I am soooo glad that it works now, I now have a bridge and gate (other plugins) that operate with the time or is it is raining, and with an override button on a delay timer. So much redstone for a simple thing lol

    Nah, its no problem. Its really just an excuse to try to code one of those page-dimming popups.
  8. Offline


    Yes, it's all PailStone signs.
  9. Offline


    Then I would suggest disabling the plugins you have that affect signs one by one until it starts working.

    Love your plugin haven't seen anything with as many features for redstone. I have one problem though not sure if its a bug or not. Ive been trying to make an announceIC sign for about two hours now. It works and everything when im in the designated area however when anybody else is in the area it doesnt display the message. also, even if the other person is alone in the area it still doesnt display for anyone. please help cuz i really want this feature. heres what i typed on the sign
    -8 17 59
    -112 91 87
    I also tried with glowstone dust designating and also smaller regions but its the same thing every time.
    Thanks for your time.

    and also heres the list of plugins i have. thought it could be a conflict with them. although the only one that really affects signs is essentials.
    palestone (obviously)

    sorry for the long posts

    Can you add in the ability to block certain items with the cuboid command? My players are spawning lava and TNT.

    Thanks :)

    wow, i just read about the whole activating on change of day, and i think for community based server's having a doors open when it's light out and close when it's dark automaticily would be a pretty sick thing.

    tested extensively on build #1000; still working great.

    EDIT: i haven't checked for sure, but i'm also experiencing the issue mentioned above with the :announce signs....whenever i'm in the area it works fine, but whenever anyone else is....nothing.

    @Hafnium Until the bug gets fixed with Bukkit, could you issue out a temporary "fix" that if a blank sign is present where a pailstone sign is stored, to replace the data with what it's supposed to be?
  15. Offline


    You know what, fine. Expect an update later today with new signs, bugfixes, and THIS.

    PailStone 3.4.0 is OUT!

    I've added one old sign back in, and added an entirely new one as well. I've also implemented a protection against the sign wiping bug for now. If you do not want this protection, set wipe-protection to 'false' in the new config file. (/plugins/pail/stone/config.txt)

    Just installed, thanks for fixing bug of vanilla code ^^

    Thank you very much. (The reason I asked was this was breaking so many circuits and some of my players were getting furious.)
  18. Offline


    I didn't fix the bug, your chests and furnaces and non-pailstone signs will still be wiped. I just made PailStone signs immune.

    I know, but thanks for clarifying anyways. :p

    It was more of a reply to Shell64. Your feature request described how my fix works exactly, so I knew you'd be able to figure it out. :p

    Oh, I completely missed his post. *facepalm*. XD

    I also know, for me the most important is being able to protect my circuits. :p

    Hey Hafnium,
    first I want to say thanks for the Update! But unfortunately I next I have to bother you again with my "sending trigger commands through the console"-request. When I create a trigger sign and trigger it trough the game it works perfect, but when I try it through the console I get the following error:

    Im using Windows and tried it with Java 64bit and Java 32bit. I tried it with my normal Server and with a new Setup with only Pailstone as a Plugin running. I hope its not too hard for you to solve this problem. Thanks for you help and (as said above, but not often enough ;-) ) GREAT PLUGIN, keep up the good Work!

    Mini-update with the trigger bug fixed.

    Rapid fire releases part three, bringing you FOUR new ICs:

    delay, clock, rand, and toggle!

    If you guys are enjoying the plugin, don't be afraid to give my donate link some love, or failing that, drop a line here! Its your enjoyment that motivates us plugin devs.

    So i saw something about maybe an item like a slimeball to hit the signs that could be reloaded, example the 24 :ctime signs that are in my new clock tower that was working till i updated or something, not sure what stopped it from working, but I would just love a configurable item and works for the correct signs and displays an error like "this sign can not be reloaded, remake it blah blah" <-if you use that for the error that would be awesome

    Just a thought, not in a hurry to make the tower work right away so maybe it is doable, if not then I will get on it later in the week.

    Thanks again for an awesome plugin and the growth that it has been getting, allows for so many ideas

    Can u add a counter sign? Have like

    Where # is the amount of times (out of 10) that the sign has received a pulse from a redstone, 10 is the amount of times it takes for it to pulse and West is the direction it pulses... This would really help in lessening logic. ^^
  29. Offline


    I will do a counter, but not like that.

    Just another thought.... could the :clock have the option on the last line for "SP" to be selfpowered... I was going to use pailstone to replace another plugin called clocksign, but atm clock sign is more compact for the things that i made already :(

    adding to the thought... the :clock is not starting back up after a restart

    Both of those were intentional decisions to address lag. I would advise against running clocks non-stop. Most of the time, hooking a :sensor to it will ensure it only runs when it needs to.
