    Bricke, to get a current out of a sign, you have to place a lever on the opposite side of the block from the sign. To get current to the sign, you have to wire the redstone into the front face of the sign. I posted an image a page back that shows how it is done.

    Epic plugin Hafnium, i really love it [​IMG] Thankx.

    I just try devise some new improvements for you ..

    Updated with mob spawning and a cuboid IC. Cuboid ICs essentially function as incredibly versatile [Gate] [Door] and [Bridge] craftbook signs. They can even do non 3x1xn shapes. ;)

    Signs are unloading again D; Again, same case scenario. They worked for a few days actually, then while the server was idle they dropped.
  9. Offline


    I've noticed this too, but on my server, they come back after a bit. I'm doing some bug testing, but without figuring our the exact conditions, its slow-going.

    Any chance of creating an announcement sign?
    When powered it sends a message to every player within x blocks?

    Hello Hafnium! Top notch job on the plugin there! We use it heavily on the server that I totally run and stuff. You probably haven't heard of it.

    It runs fantastically and has great ideas. However I do have a request for an IC if I may.

    I suggest that you include a countdown IC. It would involve a high (or low) input on a sign initiating a defined countdown on the sign. The 3 available parameters could be <Time to count down (in seconds or game ticks)> <Detected input (what goes in)> <Given output (what goes out)>. It should be pulse triggered and unalterable once the countdown has been initiated, with a sensible limit of course. There is no sense in have a timer that runes for over 10 minutes, for example.

    Either way I don't know how possible that is but I'm sure with your incredibly knowledgy knowledge you can make it happen. I want to have sex with your face.

    I totally forgot that I was going to do this. :p

    This is an interesting idea. I'm going to have to tinker around with it.

    When the server restarts, all of our proximity sensors seem to get reset. They don't save. Why is this?
  14. Offline


    !!! Critical Update !!!

    There is a serious flaw in 2.10, please update to 2.20 asap.

    The code that saves the signs doesn't differentiate between sign types. I would suggest using :twire for now.

    I mean. I create the sign, set the radius to 8, and if the server restarts or something, I come back, the radius is 5. WITHOUT fail, the radius on all Proximity signs somehow end up at 5.

    I've PM'd you what I think is the cause, and a possible solution.

    Might I suggest that you use real-world values for a cuboid selection instead of offsets? It's much harder to figure out offsets for me than it is to get the standard X, Y, Z coords.

    Great job on this mod, very innovative!

    Any chance you'll be releasing the source? I'd love to tinker with it and hopefully contribute some ICs!

  17. Offline


    but2002, I tinkered with that, but the issue is that past a certain range, you run out of space on the sign for the numbers. :p

    You can designate the points with glowstone dust though. The item for that will be configurable in the next update.

    Yeah Jonanin, I'll release the source with my bukkit 600 build I'm pumping out tomorrow.

    Updated for 602.

    Where can I find the source?

    Hehehe, totally broken in the new release it would seem.
  21. Offline


    Yes, CB 612 has an issue with signs, you have to use CB 613+. Still, Pailstone recognizes the signs (according to Log and Sign color), but none of the ICs work. No errors are thrown...
  22. Offline


    It looks like the method I use to ensure that no one sign fires more than once every two ticks is broken. Leads me to believe that the server.getFullTime() call borked too. I'm doing so research, but don't expect pailstone to be back until this weekend. As long as you don't touch your signs they should all start working again when I update.

    Ah, indeed it did! Look at, Pailstone might work CB 617, have not tested yet, though :)

    Edit: Just tested it quickly! Looks good with CB 617.

    Your webserver is offline! I just updated my pailstone.jar with the html of a 404 page D:

    It is fixed! :)

    Silly CraftBukketUpToDate decided the 404 page was more updated than the actual .jar file. Herpy Derp!
  25. Offline


    Dammit.. Mines the 404 too.
    Lessons learned: Dont just check if update is CB compatible. Also check if .JAR is a real .JAR. :)
  26. Offline


    Yeah, the 404 was my fault. :p Problems between server host and my bank. Everything is back to normal.

    The version for 602 works, as far as I can tell, in the latest RB. The :spawn will even work with wolves. I'm currently working on allowing you to pass arguments to :spawn like slime size, sheep color, wolf anger, etc.

    Hi, your plugin is awsome!! I'm actually using it for a dungeon on my server.
    But i've found some problem on my side.

    - First, i don't understand how to write correctly the twire sign it's a problem for me, because in some cases i don't want to use proximity because it's an circle area detection and i just need a cuboid.
    - Second, and probably the worst for me, sometime (i can't find when exactly) the list sign in the folder "Do not edit" goes empty and i can't make my previous signs works even if i restart or reload the server with this empty file or by putting a backup of the working once in it, have you ever heard of this problem and do you know any solution?

    PS: I work on Bukkit 617. And sorry for all the grammatical mistakes, it's not my natural language

    The file just goes blank? There should be some sort of log.txt in your /plugins/pailstone folder, you want to give me its contents?

    For now, right clicking on a sign with a slime ball forces PailStone to reload it.
  29. Offline


    Ho yes apologize, the files don't go totally blank. In fact all my sign allready set in game, disapears from file and are replaced by this(nearly):
    This is my log, thank you for the help

    For some reason the signs will not spawn hostile mobs, but will spawn sheep, chickens, cows, and pigs fine. Me and my friend were trying to make a dungeon that spawns mobs with pressure plates and we just couldn't get it to work :(

    Edit: Nevermind! We figured out what was wrong, I didn't realize my friend had protected the area and he didn't know that protecting it would stop hostile mobs from spawning!

    Thanks your plugin has made our dungeon a reality!!

    First of all, thanks for an awesome plugin! Really useful. But is it possible to add cooldown for the :spawn sign? I use the sign in my museum and people can spawn the mob over and over again so that is kinda annoying sometimes.:p
