    After a request from Marius A. Winsjansen I started to work on linked Minecarts. On the first day I already managed to make multiple carts move with the same speed, but a long list of bugs was to be expected. After fixing lots of bugs, adding lots of (complicated) Minecart handling functions and after hours of testing on my local server, this plugin is finally ready for a stable release! :D

    Also, special thanks go to @Shamebot for helping me out several times. :)

    Description:
    For a lot of information about TrainCarts see the WIKI page!

    Configuration and permissions

    All configuration nodes can be found in config.yml and contains a description with it. Permissions can be found in PermissionDefaults.yml, combined with a description.

    Media:

    Early development video (Photobucket)

    Video displaying version 0.6 of this plugin (YouTube)

    Video displaying version 1.0 of this plugin (YouTube)

    Video displaying version 1.1 of this plugin (YouTube)

    Video displaying version 1.2 of this plugin (holy...)


    A tutorial video in German explaining various sign-circuitry of TrainCarts


    PhotoBucket Sign system tutorial videos (also linked in the WIKI pages)
    Train spawner / Stations / Stations2 / Arrival signs / Train teleportation / Track switcher based on tags / Destinations / Blocker
    Video of how the switcher, station and destination signs work together

    Side information:

    It works best on straight lines with not too much elevation changes followed up by sharp corners. As long the cart gap can be adjusted, everything goes fine. It had some collision issues in the past, but I fixed all of that by manipulating the actual Minecraft server native code. I added links in the source where this was appropriate. Sharp 'U'-turns cause individual carts to lose perceptive of their direction. Keep at least one piece of track in between corner sections! Trains are stored on-disk when reloading and stopping the server, so expect trains to be there when you return.

    Important when updating: do one reload to save all trains, then replace traincarts.jar, and then do another reload. This next reload will probably cause a noClassDefFound exception (since the old jar got replaced), this is why a pre-reload is required. Replacing the jar without reloading is a very bad idea: it will cause a lot of runtime exceptions. Best is of course to stop the server and start again, but this is not always possible.

    This plugin is made compatible with Minecart Mania. If you notice a certain feature of Minecart Mania is not compatible with TrainCarts, notify me and I'll fix it. :)


    Known bugs:
    - None.

    TODO:
    - Train-sign message handling using SignLink (low priority)
    - Minecart use permissions (for individual carts?) such as Storage Minecarts

    Commenting

    If you encountered a bug, post exactly what you had done and in what order. Even a slight wobble can help fixing bugs. When posting (long) errors I recommend you to post everything, don't cut it off. I work with native methods, so in my case these lines are important. For comments on the media content see YouTube, it also contains a description with the music name when music is used.

    Bug reporting (extend)

    1. Post the Craftbukkit version you are using (the first info message in the console)
    2. Post the log from where the first plugin gets enabled to the 'done'.
    3. Post possible errors in this log too (don't cut them short)
    4. No error? Still post the log. Also explain how I can reproduce it, you can use screenshots
    5. Before reporting, remove ALL plugins other than TrainCarts and try again. If it works then, find out what plugin is interfering and post that here. I can add support.
    6. ALWAYS use the latest recommended Craftbukkit build with this, or my methods may just fail because of renamed functions.

    Important links:

    Request thread
    TrainCarts on BukkitDev for download and more
    TrainCarts source and more on GitHub
    TrainCartsBlocks add-on source and more on GitHub
    SignLink Bukkit page (required to use Arrival signs)
    MyWorlds Bukkit page (required to use Portal train teleportation)

    notice: try to keep SignLink/MyWorlds up-to-date to prevent compatibility issues.

    Installation for those that don't know how

    1. Download and install the latest craftbukkit version
    2. Download the latest TrainCarts version
    3. ^ Save the archive (zip file) to your computer
    4. ^ Open the archive you just downloaded
    5. In the folder your server sits in, create the plugins folder if it doesn't exist
    6. Open the plugins folder
    7. Move the TrainCarts.jar file found in the archive into the plugins folder
    8. Run your craftbukkit server and look in the console/log for possible errors, and/or if the plugin is enabled.

    Would it be possible to make the signs optional either via the config or permissions? I don't want my players to be able to spawn minecarts. Thanks! ^_^

    Shall I add OP permissions with the option to use the bukkit perms?

    Celtic Minstrel

    I would just add Bukkit permissions and default them to op...

    Astrae

    Noted; thanks for the tip!

    Also; you you modify the Minecart mania listener so the train will stop on the first cart only? It seems excessive to top for every cart

    @Astrae yep that is already added; if (member == group.head())'; plain and simple. :)

    And ok, I'll use bukkit permissions and if it is not found it checks if the user is OP.

    Hopfully you can make a delay sign the minecarts hold for the amount wrote on the sing? XD
     
  10. Offline

    bergerkiller

    @King_KYl3 yep that was the thing I mentioned in my previous post. The train simply moves 'one up' and it waited again on the next cart. That is fixed. :)

    Anything else I need to update/add for 1.25?

    King_KYl3

    Sorry but not getting you,your saying you already have this in this plugin? place a sign underneath a track and write "hold for [seconds]" so ?
     
  12. Offline

    bergerkiller

    That feature works in Minecart Mania, yes.
    If you want it in the standard version, I don't think it is needed. You can easily make it out of a redstone circuit with lots of repeaters. :)

    Need an example? :p

    Also, not in the version uploaded here, it is in the version I have, which I am about to publish. :)

    bergerkiller

    @randeri221 Stuck as in, how? Immovable? Did the carts try to move towards each other? Is a gap visible between the carts? Does this always happen, or is it a random occasion? How can I reproduce it? (most important)

    This includes:
    - placement
    - which cart you moved
    - if possible: press F3, look at the direction you want the train to move and tell me what F: value is shown (0-3)

    EDIT

    Ok that IS weird...let me take a look. :)
    BTW: I get the idea it is in the setForwardForce function.

    EDIT2

    Nope I can't seem to reproduce this. I did see it before; one cart stopping in the middle of the curve; but with the current setup I can't seem to reproduce it...

    I don't think I have to ask, but still, you are using 1.24?

    randeri221

    dude look at the post i changed it

    Just in case you had v1.21 (which was very unreliable, I even removed it from the changelog lol), remove the Train Carts folder in plugins. I had issues with 900 'ghost trains' being invisible, so it is a 'just in case' thing.

    And still can't seem to reproduce it...

    Just in case I 'magically fixed it without me noticing it' I'll upload v1.25.

    Try this version, if it still fails I might need the 'best possible bug report of human history' to solve this...

    EDIT

    Also, a list of plugins you use could be nice. No idea if other plugins exist that alter minecart movements. (except Minecart Mania of course)

    Ah, that's not quite what I meant by default; I meant just check Bukkit permissions only, and then in your plugin.yml add stuff like this:
    Code:
    permissions:
      your.permission.node:
        default: op

    Code:
    name: Train Carts
    main: com.bergerkiller.bukkit.tc.TrainCarts
    version: 1.25
    author: bergerkiller
    description: Plugin that allows the use of minecart trains with adjustable settings
    permissions:
                train.build.station:
                            default: op

    commands:
    Like this I suppose?

    It only has permissions for sign building; could add permissions for pushing trains if someone requests it. Linking is pretty much impossible to add permissions to...there is no 'source' of a player when linking.

    And @randeri221
    Make a new batch script in the plugins folder (list.bat), edit it with notepad and add this in the text:
    And post the text in plugins.txt. It should give a fair list of the plugin you use. :)

    Permissions also have an optional description field, if you want to use that.

    @randeri221 I see multiple (1) and (2) names under plugins, you should never rename the jar files. It can cause duplicate plugins, and this can cause plugins to kill each other. (same class names, different location, classnotfounderror). I also see Spout, I'll have to see if TrainCarts is compatible with that, too.

    EDIT

    Compatible with Spout (latest recommended build).

    EDIT 2

    Failed to find any conflicting plugin. Even falsebook and nextstation worked correctly...
    Can only recommend the thing everyone recommends: move all plugins away and add them until it stops working.

    EDIT 3

    Aw well updated to v1.25, adding the features discussed above.

    It was working perfectly, until it caused all my minecarts to duplicate themselves by like a 100 each.

    bergerkiller

    @js105287 this happens when you reload too fast, I have had it once too, very bad. :(
    What happens is the following:
    - MinecartMember despawns and spawns the EntityMinecart
    - Weird reload glitch (?)
    - Entity minecarts link with eachother; despawns and spawns MinecartMembers again
    - Minecart UUID becomes invalid
    - Reload returns and spawns all minecarts again

    All it is is a weird glitch where the despawn/spawn system suddenly fails and 'forgets' to remove the previous minecart it is supposed to despawn. Have been tackling it for a while now, I see it is not yet gone...

    I see haha, well besides that it's a great plugin, all my players were very pleased with it. Unfortunately I always remove and add plugins and I use the reload command often, so until it's fixed I'll have to do without the plugin for now :/

    bergerkiller

    @js105287 I understand, also took a deeper look after your reply, at the native coding. I used as 'fix': Entity.remove(), but it appears it only sets the cart to 'dead'. In other words; the cart is not removed when the next one spawns! So, I might find some real solution around it. :)
