    XSigns - Switch text with redstonecurrent:
    Version: v0.8

    When you place a sign you may type on each line <phrase1|phrase2>.

    On redstonecurrent phrase2 is shown otherwise phrase1

    See here:

    Big XSigns
    You can create XSigns with more text.
    First place your Sign and write

    finish the sign, break it and put it on the same place.
    And then write

    Youtube: Big XSigns

    Toggleable XSigns
    Start wie a Big XSign, but you can place as many |PhraseX| as you want,
    finish with |LastPhrase>

    Youtube: Toggleable XSign

    If you want to count something, just write [counter] in one line.
    This will create a counter which will be increased with a falling
    redstone current.

    Youtube: XSign Counter

    1. Download the zip or the jar file (the .zip includes flexjson)
    2. Put the XSigns.jar in your plugins folder.
    3. XSigns needs flexjson-2.1 download it or get it with the .zip
    4. Place flexjson-2.1 in your lib/ folder
    5. Enjoy :)

  4. @Orangenpresse: tested your sugestion, after each server reboot it would appear that the sign sends you to the correct location.

    is this your plugin not updating the sign text where MM looks for it?
    or do you think its Afforess thats not picking up the sign change?

    Hmm I think the Sign is read on Serverstart and SignChange event.
    I only notify the Server that he should reload the Sign when its changed.

    But my only Change between 0.6 and 0.7 was to use the new function name "notify" instead of "g". So I hope that it will be ok for you if I send you to Afforess? :)

    Thank you :)

    Is flexjson.jar in your lib folder?

    It's solved now. I forgot it... ,_,
  18. I would like to see some simple commands like: +1 or -1 or something like that.
    Cause I would like to show how many people are inside a room.

    Nice idea :)
    I must think about that, to realize it as simply as possible.

    Awesome plugin, works like a charm. Thanks Orangenpresse!

    (And just tested with #996, works fine)

    Will it be possible in future versions to have a reset t the counter?
    Without Destroying the sign.

    I think I've got an idea how to implement this and the +1 -1 commands.
    My exams are over now, so I should be able to implement the new commands until next week :)

    I have a small issue and I'm not sure why...

    When ever I reload or restart the server the XSigns that I created no longer work...
    the only debug code I get for this plugin on boot is:

    2011-07-31 06:49:34 [INFO] XSigns info: non existend XSign or unfinished Big XSign found. It will be deleted after building a new XSign
    2011-07-31 06:49:34 [INFO] XSigns info: 2 XSigns loaded
    2011-07-31 06:49:34 [INFO] XSigns version 0.7 is enabled!
    I am not sure what is with the Big XSign but other than that it seems normal...

    Can you please upload the data.sav file? (in the plugins/XSigns folder)

    Cameron Auber

    There would be the problem... it hasn't been generated and there wasn't one that came with the plugin
  26. Offline


    I think we've got the problem :)

    If there are no file, the data will not be saved. But there should be some Error output like:
    error: can't create XSigns plugin folder, Signs will not be saved!
    please check the permissions in the plugin folder or create the folder and the file and give write permissions to the file.

    i have a suggestion don't know if its possible but here goes

    when you make a counter you can put <max> on the 2nd line when it gets to that number it resets to 0 and the sign releases a redstone burst(behind it) so that it can be used as a counter in blinking systems.

    thanks this is an awesome mod exactly what i need for my mincart mania farm.

    (off topic) what texture pack are you using in the video?

    Hi, first of all, I LOVE YOUR PLUGIN! It's absolutely instrumental on my server. How do you reset a counter back to zero? I want some way to have a timer that counts down.

    Thanks so much,

    Hmm ok there seems to be a problem with the new Bukkit release, I try to fix it this weekend.
    Works fine with 1240.

    Nice idea, I hope I will get the time to implement this.
