    SpeedSign - Advanced signeditor:
    Version: v0.8.2

    With SpeedSign you can edit a sign you are looking at, restrict access to it, overload it and much much more.

    I'm looking for testers or someone who makes a nice tutorial.

    • Edit signs with commands
    • Edit the sign by simply rightclicking it with a sign
    • Have multiple colors in one line
    • Colored text while typing on a sign
    • Permissions/Lockette support
    • Restrict sign access
    • Clear text with doubleclick
    • Remote/Group access to signs
    • Config file for colors, color character and more
    • Shout out or read the sign text
    • Colors over all lines
    • Per color permissions
    Install (open)

    Move the speedsign.jar to yourserver/plugins.
    The plugin supports Permissions(GroupManager too) but doesn't need it.
    If there is no Permissions just ops can use the functions.
    Lockette is supported but not needed.

    For the client mod you just have to copy the .class file into your .minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar file. Then delete the META-INF folder out of it.

    Commands OLD (open)

    /sign set <line> <text> - sets the "line" of sign to "text"
    /sign add <line> <text> - adds to the "line" of sign "text"
    /sign clear - clears sign
    /sign super - changes you to overload-mode (just needed forthe client mod users)

    In the moment it needs to be '$' but i don't see any reason to change it.
    Maybe i could make a config file where you could chose it,but it doesn't seem such important to me.

    Color doesnt seem to work on my server (670), i just see the $3 on the sign. Do i need any other mod for this to work?
  5. Offline


    You have to put the color name there like: $red or $blue
    The tutorial video is finished. It just has to be uploaded now.
    There is all detailed explained.

    full color name sure takes a lot of space... but it works, thanks!

    The place is no problem anymore with my overload feature!!
  8. Offline


    yea but you have to activate it before you can use it, so it's hard to tell everyone how it works O:
  9. Offline


    The overload works without mod and toggle too.
    The toggle is just to let it work with the mod.
    You just have then to use the commands like "/sign set 1 verly long text over 15 characters"
    You'll just need the permission node
  10. Offline


    Okay, but then still you have to type it by command, that's what i mostly want to prevent because there are already lots of commands from the most mods. It would be just nice to have a shortcut for colors! Don't get me wrong. I really like your plugin!

    I noticed there is a problem with editing signs if they're more than 3 blocks above you or many signs near by each other. It sometimes edits a sign i don't look at.
  11. Offline


    Yes I noticed that too. I think that has something to do with Craftbukkit.

    A question : Are you using the client mod?
    It facilitates the sign editing much.
    The shortcuts for colors will come in the next version where u can choose them all in the config file.
  12. Offline


    No i don't use the client mod. For me there is no problem with commands, i just think about the most users who don't want to learn so many commands to use the most server plugins

    So is there a way to see a list of all possible colors? Was trying purple but it doesn't seem to be one of the possible colors.

    EDIT: Found a list here:

    Also I have a feature request. Would it be possible to add a command that would change the color of a line of the sign? Such as:
    /sign color {line number} {desired color}
    And it changes that whole line to the color you specify? It is annoying to go back and color old signs because you have to retype everything on them because there is no in game way to add something to the start of a line.
  14. Offline


    Yes I'll add it. But should it change all colors of a line to it or just the first?
    How would be a feature for adding text to left side: eg: /sign add -1 text ?
  15. Offline


    I would suggest /sign insert <line> <text> or /sign ins, /sign prepend, /sign pre.
    So are you using the ChatColor color names or the classic color codes?

    Definitely the best bukkit sign plugin :p
  16. Offline


    Thanks :)
    Im using the ChatColor names.
    I'm thinking of something like: /sign ins <line> [index] <text>
    and something like: /sign rem <line> [-line2] <index> [-index2]

    The overloaded signs don't get saved if you change map or (not sure) if the server restarts. Any fix for this? :(
  18. Offline


    The signs are saved if the server restarts...
    But I don't get what you mean with mapchange?
    It would be nice if you could post me your signs.yml in the speedsign folder.

    It seems that the 1.5 client doesn't accept long sign lines anymore :'(
    I'm getting:
    Internal exception : java.io.IOException: Received string length longer than maximum allowed (16 > 15)
    This is on the client. Anybody else getting this? It actually makes my world unplayable at the moment. I'll have to write a truncating plugin or something.
  20. Offline


    I'm wondering how it worked to install the mod, or didn't you install it?
    I could look into the mc 1.5 version and make a separate mod for it.


    Ok I created an overloaded sign in 1.4_01 and then updated my minecraft to 1.5_01.
    The sign simply got truncated, but nothing more.
  21. Offline


    Oh. maybe it's a RedstoneChips issue. I didn't try to mod the client yet but I thought the mod was only changing the way the sign update is sent TO the server. In this case I think it's the client complaining about a malformed packet sent by the server.

    EDIT: It is an RC issue. Apparently it's 15 including any colors :( The line §4messagecircuit caused the problem...

    A question how did u get bukkit to work on 1.5?
  23. Offline


    I downloaded the latest craftbukkit. They pretty much finished updating for 1.5.

    i cant overload signs even when i use /sign super
  26. Offline


    If you have the new CB you need the client mod to overload. This clientmod isn't released yet.

    needspeed, did you consider this? I'm not sure it will be so easy to override.
  28. Offline


    One question: Can you see overloaded signs without the clientmod?
  29. Offline


    before minecraft 1.5 yes
    now not

    Okay.. it worked like 5 minutes ago, i don't know what caused this:
    i'm using bukkit 714, newest speedsign. error is with old and new version.

    edit: that bug seems to fixed itself after deleting the speedsign folder and restarting the server.

    but in the new version i got the problem that signs with color codes (which worked before) now give me the message that i should not overload. (they worked with the previous version in 1.5_02 though) Maybe don't calculate the $colorcode to the characters used?

    Hi, in 1.5_01, playing on a 1.5_02 server, I can still see all the colorful overloaded signs that we made in 1.4;

    However I cannot create them any more - although I can still see my overloaded signs, it doesn't want to create a new one.
