    Description
    =============
    This is a port of the Stargate plugin from hMod - Originally by Dinnerbone/Sturmeh.
    Create gates that allow for instant-teleportation between large distances. Gates can be always-open, or triggered, they can be hidden, or accessible to everybody, they can share a network, or they can be split into clusters.

    http://www.youtube.com/uggames#p/u/4/_Xzbmp7UlXw - Tutorial video by @BIG_PIP_IN - A few notes:
    1) The 'F' option is actually to create a 'F'ree gate. A fixed gate is when you specify a destination on the second line.
    2) The button is automagically created for you, so there's no need to actually place a button, but no harm in it either

    =============
    Permissions
    =============
    I now fully implemented SuperPerms support, which meant an overhaul of the Permissions nodes. I also removed the network/world filter options as they are completely handled by Permissions now with no need for an option. The new permissions nodes means you may need to redo your permissions setup.
    A child node (indented) will be given if a player has the parent node (So a player with stargate.use will have access to all stargate.world.* nodes essentially, though it's not implemented like this you can think of it like this).

    If you want to have more control over who can use what network, first set the stargate.use permission to false (This is REQUIRED, as it defaults to true, and is a full override). When using the network/world nodes, you will need to set up BOTH nodes, leaving out either stargate.network or stargate.world will result in 'Permission Denied' errors.
    Once you have disabled stargate.use, you can either give individual stargate.network.{name} nodes, or give them stargate.network and set specific stargate.network.{name} nodes to false to deny access to those specific networks.
    Worlds work in the same way, though with stargate.world.{name}. (Make sure to set up both stargate.network AND stargate.world nodes to avoid Permission Denied errors).
    Create and destroy permissions work along the same lines, stargate.create/stargate.destroy will override all other options, if you want more fine-tuned control first set those permissions to false, then give stargate.create.network/stargate.create.gate and use the subnodes to remove specific networks/gates.

    If you are not using stargate.use, stargate.create or stargate.destroy then you MUST define EVERYTHING yourself for that specific set of nodes

    Code:
    stargate.use -- Allow use of all gates linking to any world in any network (Override ALL network/world permissions. Set to false to use network/world specific permissions)
      stargate.world -- Allow use of gates linking to any world (For Permissions 2.x/3.x please use stargate.world.*)
        stargate.world.{world} -- Allow use of gates with a destination in {world}. Set to false to disallow use.
      stargate.network -- Allow use of gates on all networks (For Permissions 2.x/3.x please use stargate.network.*)
        stargate.network.{network} -- Allow use of all gates in {network}. Set to false to disallow use.
    
    stargate.option -- Allow use of all options
      stargate.option.hidden -- Allow use of 'H'idden
      stargate.option.alwayson -- Allow use of 'A'lways-On
      stargate.option.private -- Allow use of 'P'rivate
      stargate.option.free -- Allow use of 'F'ree
      stargate.option.backwards -- Allow use of 'B'ackwards
      stargate.option.show -- Allow use of 'S'how
      
    stargate.create -- Allow creating gates on any network (Override all create permissions)
      stargate.create.personal -- Allow creating gates on network {playername}
      stargate.create.network -- Allow creating gates on any network (For Permissions 2.x/3.x please use stargate.create.network.*)
        stargate.create.network.{networkname} -- Allow creating gates on network {networkname}. Set to false to disallow creation on {networkname}
      stargate.create.gate -- Allow creation of any gate layout (For Permissions 2.x/3.x please use stargate.create.gate.*)
        stargate.create.gate.{gatefile} -- Allow creation of only {gatefile} gates
    
    stargate.destroy -- Allow destruction gates on any network (Orderride all destroy permissions)
      stargate.destroy.personal -- Allow destruction of gates owned by user only
      stargate.destroy.network -- Allow destruction of gates on any network (For Permissions 2.x/3.x please use stargate.destroy.network.*)
        stargate.destroy.network.{networkname} -- Allow destruction of gates on network {networkname}. Set to false to disallow destruction of {networkname}
    
    stargate.free -- Allow free use/creation/destruction of gates
      stargate.free.use -- Allow free use of Stargates
      stargate.free.create -- Allow free creation of Stargates
      stargate.free.destroy -- Allow free destruction of Stargates
      
    stargate.admin -- Allow all admin features (Hidden/Private only so far)
      stargate.admin.private -- Allow use of Private gates not owned by user
      stargate.admin.hidden -- Allow access to Hidden gates not ownerd by user
    Please read this if you are using PermissionsEx
    PermissionsEx loads nodes in a very screwed up manner. You need to put any wildcards AFTER their negations. So if you want to allow access to all networks except 'Bah' you would do it as such:
    Code:
            - -stargate.network.Bah
            - stargate.network.*
    This is a PermissionsEx issue, and there is nothing I can do to make it easier to use negations.

    =============
    Default Permissions
    =============
    stargate.use -- Everyone
    stargate.create -- Op
    stargate.destroy -- Op
    stargate.option -- Op
    stargate.free -- Op
    stargate.admin -- Op

    =============
    Instructions
    =============
    Building a gate:
    Code:
        OO
       O  O - These are Obsidian blocks. You need 10.
       O  O - Place a sign on either of these two blocks of Obsidian.
       O  O
        OO
    Sign Layout:
    - Line 1: Gate Name (Max 11 characters)
    - Line 2: Destination Name [Optional] (Max 11 characters, used for fixed-gates only)
    - Line 3: Network name [Optional] (Max 11 characters)
    - Line 4: Options [Optional] ('A' for always-on fixed gate, 'H' for hidden networked gate, 'P' for a private gate, 'F' for a free gate, 'B' is a backwards gate (You will come out the back), 'S' is for showing always-on gates in their destination list)

    Options:
    The options are the single letter, not the word. So to make a private hidden gate, your 4th line would be 'PH'.

    Picture:
    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]


    Using a gate:
    - Right click the sign to choose a destination.
    - Right click the button to open up a portal.
    - Step through.

    Fixed gates:
    - Fixed gates go to only one set destination.
    - Fixed gates can be linked to other fixed gates, or normal gates. A normal gate cannot open a portal to an always-open fixed gate however.
    - To create a fixed gate, specify a destination on the second line of the stargate sign.
    - Set the 4th line of the stargate sign to "A" to enable an always-open fixed gate.

    Gate networks:
    - Gates are all part of a network, by default this is "central".
    - You can specify (and create) your own network on the third line of the sign when making a new gate.
    - Gates on one network will not see gates on the second network, and vice versa.
    - Gates on different worlds, but in the same network, will see eachother.

    Hidden Gates:
    - Hidden gates are like normal gates, but only show on the destination list of other gates under certain conditions.
    - A hidden gate is only visible to the creator of the gate, or somebody with the stargate.hidden permission.
    - Set the 4th line of the stargate sign to 'H' to make it a hidden gate.

    iConomy Support:
    The latest version of Stargate has support for iConomy. Gate creation, destruction and use can all have different costs associated with them.
    There is a default cost defined in the Stargate config.yml, and you can define per-gate layout costs in the custom .gate files you create.
    To define a certain cost to a gate just add these lines to your .gate file:
    usecost=5
    destroycost=5
    createcost=5
    toowner=true

    ==============
    Custom Gate Layout
    ==============
    You can create as many gate formats as you want, the gate layouts are stored in plugins/Stargate/gates/
    The .gate file must be laid out a specific way, the first lines will be config information, and after a blank line you will lay out the gate format. Here is the default nether.gate file:
    Code:
    portal-open=90
    portal-closed=0
    X=49
    -=49
    
     XX 
    X..X
    -..-
    X*.X
     XX 
    
    portal-open/closed are used to define the material in the gate when it is open or closed.
    "X" and "-" are used to define block "types" for the layout (Any single-character can be used, such as "#").
    In the gate format, you can see we use "X" to show where obsidian must be, "-" where the controls (Button/sign) are.
    You will also notice a "*" in the gate layout, this is the "exit point" of the gate, the block at which the player will teleport in front of.
    As of v0.5.5 you can use block data in .gate files in the format:
    X=35:15
    Which would make the block only work if it's black wool. If no data is supplied any type of that block (Any color wool) will work.

    ==============
    Configuration
    ==============
    default-gate-network - The default gate network
    portal-folder - The folder your portal databases are saved in
    gate-folder - The folder containing your .gate files

    usecost - The cost to use a stargate
    chargefreedestination - Enable to allow free travel from any gate to a free gate
    freegatesgreen - Enable to make gates that won't cost the player money show up as green
    toowner - Whether the money from gate-use goes to the owner or nobody
    maxgates - If non-zero will define the maximum amount of gates allowed in a network.
    lang - The language to use (Included languages: en, de)

    debug - Whether to show massive debug output
    permdebug - Whether to show massive permission debug output

    =======================
    Message Customization
    =======================
    As of 0.6.5 it is possible to customize all of the messages Stargate displays, including the [Stargate] prefix. You can find the strings in plugins/Stargate/lang/en.txt.
    If a string is removed, or left blank, it will not be shown when the user does the action associated with it.
    There are three special cases when it comes to messages, these are:
    ecoDeduct=Spent %cost%
    ecoRefund=Redunded %cost%
    ecoObtain=Obtained %cost$ from Stargate %portal%

    As you can see, these three strings have variables in them. These variables are fairly self-explanatory.
    The full list of strings is as follows:
    prefix=[Stargate]
    teleportMsg=Teleported
    destroyMsg=Gate Destroyed
    invalidMsg=Invalid Destination
    blockMsg=Destination Blocked
    denyMsg=Access Denied
    destEmpty=Destination List Empty

    ecoDeduct=Deducted %cost%
    ecoRefund=Redunded %cost%
    ecoObtain=Obtained %cost$ from Stargate %portal%
    ecoInFunds=Insufficient Funds

    createMsg=Gate Created
    createNetDeny=You do not have access to that network
    createPersonal=Creating gate on personal network
    createNameLength=Name too short or too long.
    createExists=A gate by that name already exists
    createFull=This network is full
    createWorldDeny=You do not have access to that world
    createConflict=Gate conflicts with existing gate

    =============
    F.A.Q.
    =============
    Q) Why aren't gates destroyed when I remove the obsidian with a tool like the superpickaxe?
    A) Because when you use a plugin tool such as that, it SETS the block to air, it doesn't destroy it in the same way as hitting it does. Therefor no block destroy hooks are called.

    Q) How do I make a custom .gate file?
    A) Take a look at plugins/Stargate/gates/nethergate.gate, it has all of the information you'll need. You will need to work on a COPY of nethergate.gate however, as nethergate.gate is overwritten on plugin startup.

    Q) Does this plugin work with {X}?
    A) I really don't know, I don't know how {X} is implemented, or whether they will conflict. I'm also about as interested in looking into it as you are apparently ;)

    Q) What is a "Hidden Gate"?
    A) A hidden gate is a gate on a network that is only shown on other gates destination lists if the player looking at them is its creator, or somebody with the stargate.hidden permission. A hidden gate can still be dialed out from by anybody unless it's set to Private.

    Q) What is a "Private Gate"?
    A) A private gate is a gate that can only be dialed out from by its creator, or somebody with the stargate.private permission. If it's not hidden then anybody can still dial into this gate.

    Q) What does "destroyexplosion" do?
    A) If "destroyexplosion" is false, and an explosion even touched a portal control (Sign or button) the entire explosion is cancelled. If it is true, then the gate will be destroyed as if somebody had removed the sign/button. There is currently no way I can stop just the sign/button from being destroyed, which is why the entire explosion must be stopped.

    Q) What does "stargate.create.personal" allow players to do?
    A) If a player has stargate.create.personal, they can create Stargates that have the network name set as their username, or a substring thereof (The maximum length of a network is 11 characters, so I had to substr the name). This allows a specific group to be able to create their own personal Stargate network. This network will not interfere with any other Stargate networks as everything is stored separately in memory.

    Q) Why is PlayerB getting "Access Denied" when trying to go through a gate PlayerA opened?
    A) Only one user can use a stargate at a time, if PlayerA sets the sign, nobody else can hit the button. If PlayerA sets the sign/hits the button, nobody else can walk through the gate. Always-Open Fixed Gates are an exception, as they have no "Active User".

    Q) What does this error mean "[WARNING] [Stargate] Missing destination point in .gate file nethergate.gate"?
    A) This error means there is no destination point in your .gate file, please read the section on custom gate layouts.

    Q) Why can't I use "/sg reload"?
    A) This command is only usable from the console, and will stay that way.

    Q) Can you add command X?
    A) No, the only command this plugin will ever have is /sg reload, and that's a console-only command.

    Q) Why do I get kicked with the message "You moved too quickly!(Hacking?)" when I use a gate?
    A) Stargate is not compatible with iZone.

    Q) I gave my users 'stargate.world' and 'stargate.network' but they can't use gates, why not?
    A) If you are using Permissions 2.x/3.x please use 'stargate.world.*' and 'stargate.network.*' respectively. This is a difference in how Permissions and SuperPerms are implemented.

    Q) My permissions aren't working properly, help!
    A) Turn on both debug and permdebug, you will get a LOT of output when using gates. First of all, try to determine the issue yourself based on this output. If all else fails, and only if all else fails, post your log and ask for me to resolve the issue for you.

    Q) The Russian lang pack isn't showing ingame, why not?
    A) You need to have a client mod to get russian characters in-game, same with any non-ANSI characters. Please Google for this as I don't know how to install them.

    Q) How do I enable debug mode?
    A) Add the following to your config.yml:
    debug: true
    permdebug: true

    I never tried this plugin because a friend of mine once said it is poorly coded, complicated, laggy, and in all a stupid plugin.

    He could not have been any more dead wrong.

    I adore this plugin. The simplicity and flawless functionality just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.
    And being able to customize your portals? SWEET!

    Can't wait to check out more of your work.

    Hello all! A permissions question here. I'm using GroupManager 1.4, where my own user is defined as fellow.

    MamorukunBE:
    group: 'Montbrumois'
    groups:
    - 'Montbrumois'
    - 'Admins'
    info:
    build: true
    interact: false
    permissions: []

    The group "Admins" is the only one with "stargate.use" set to true. MamorukunBE belongs to two groups, Admins and Montbrumois. Stargate seems to check only the "group:" entry, not the "groups:" entries, because with that example MamorukunBE cannot use portals. But if I change "group: 'Montbrumois'" by "group: 'Admins'", there it works without problem.

    So my question is: is Stargate designed to work with multi-groups users under GroupManager?

    This plugin has been declared [UNSUPPORTED] today because the dev argued with Bukkit Staff?
    This is a sad day indeed, given the plethora of apparently active but really unsupported plugins.
    bukkit.dev is of... questionable value. Seriously, we don't all buy into the groupthink there.
    Critical voices may not be what Bukkit wants, but suppression of opinion is far more heinous.
    In any case, such criticism was always in threads apropos to the topic, not in plugin discussions.
    Silencing your critics is a move likely to drive folks away.
    I sincerely hope the Moderators of this forum reconsider this decision.
    [EDIT] Reply by Aikard, and several responses (including one by me) were excised from this thread in the last hour. I believe there is a veiled explanation in the thread EvilSeph started recently, Improving the quality of the community. Perhaps the bukkit TOS needs changing.

    Anything posted by a banned user will be deleted. Any post referencing anything said by a banned user will be deleted. Both for the simple reason that the person is bypassing the ban (and thus you are helping them do so). Notice your post is still here and not deleted. We aren't hiding anything, we're just stopping someone from bypassing the bans we place on them. Nothing you do can give you the right to do whatever you want in this community. If you're banned for valid reasons (and he was), you are to stay banned.

    Since he's broken the rules and gotten himself banned, all of his plugins are now unsupported as he is no longer welcome in the community and thus can no longer do so.

    Before you say that he was banned simply because he argued with us, take a look at his post history. He's been insulting my staff for months without reason. The only reason why his ban has been so delayed is because I stuck up for him and hoped he would turn around, but I can only do that for so long before it becomes delusional.

    I know completely nothing about what has happened here, but from what I can see the only people that really loose out from this is the common server admins like me. I hope my and many others servers will not be left in the dust because of a feud that we have nothing to do with.

    Question:
    Are other folks allowed to take up support of banned members projects to keep the plugin alive?
    Can we at least be able to post a link for people who might want to continue using the plugin to get questions answered?
    No offence, but if folks can't find what they are looking for here, or in bukkit dev, then they are going to stop using the site. Please do not veiw the above comment as any sort of veiled threat, just a statment of the facts as I see them.
    Melonking raises a valid point.
    Unless you can offer an alternative response than "He and all his works are exiled from this place, speak not his name!" then we would appear to have a problem.

    So you guys are willing to hurt the community and all the users of his plugins because you have a problem with him? That is BEYOND immature.

    I can't believe you guys would have a problem with someone expressing an opinion that doesn't agree with yours, not only that but you're willing to hurt the entire community because of it, that boggles my mind it really does.

    Most of his projects are not originally his. It is now up to the original author what will happen, and that original author happens to be Dinnerbone. One of the Bukkit team members. I think you'll find the community will fill in the gap left behind and your servers will be fine.

    As you can see, we have not locked any of his plugins' threads - you are free to do what you wish provided it is within the boundaries set by the Terms of Service and Community Rules, this includes helping someone bypass a ban placed on them. If, however, people keep helping Drakia bypass the bans we have placed on him, you will leave us no choice but to lock his plugin's threads.

    I don't care who you are. If you insult my staff and continuously cause trouble and break the Community Rules, you will be banned.

    I can see there is no convincing you, so I'm not going to bother. He's banned for valid reasons and will stay banned.

    As people keep attempting to help Drakia bypass the bans placed on him, they leave us no choice but to lock his threads. We strongly suggest everyone look for a better alternative to this plugin as it is no longer supported since the developer has been banned for continuously insulting my staff and breaking several of the community's rules. Anyone helping Drakia bypass any bans will be dealt with.
