    Yes, well the new version should generate the files on it's own :)

    So when I make a button warp it works fine, but if I /reload or restart my server, it's gone.

    You have to copy the folder and it's content from the downloaded file to your plugins folder too, not only the WorldPortal.jar file. Otherwise it wouldn't work!

    Oh, okay. Thanks! Love the plugin, by the way.

    Thanks a lot! The plugin should be updated soon with a LOT of new features. (Payment, delay, costum messages, costum permissions, more portal objects, everything.

    Sounds good. Is there a way I can toggle whether or not it says "Teleported to the world ___", even if it's the same world?

    Tim Visee

    Not in the current version. Well you could turn the message off for every portal in the config file, but I don't think that's really what you wan't to have.

    Having some trouble with End-type worlds. When I shut down my server and restart, they a) kill the first person who walks through them by dropping them a hundred blocks into lava then b) re-generate the world as a normal type world.
    This is highly irritating, as I'm sure you can guess.
    Any idea if this is a problem on my end or a problem with WP itself? If it's my problem then any idea how to keep my end-type worlds?

    Hi, I don't know what the problem is. But you may know I'm fully rewriting the plugin, it should be fixed when I release the new version!

    Fully rewriting? Fantastic, I reproduced the effect on my test server, so I could capture the log, but it didn't exactly enlighten me. Let me walk through what I did, start to finish.

    1) I created a new End-type world with WorldPortal, and built a number of structures there. While the server was up, there was no issues.
    2) I had to update my CraftBukkit jar, so I brought down the server, did the update, and started the server.
    3) When I logged in, I used the button used for the new world's portal, fell through a void into fire and died.
    4) When I respawned, I tried the portal again, this time I spawned on a totally new normal type world, with brand new generation.

    The only sign of all this happening in the log is worldportal generating the new terrain, log extract follows. Hope any of this is helpful, I'm really looking forward to the new version of the plugin, I love your work!

    Thanks, I'm still not really sure what happend btw. Maybe it's a problem that your world wasn't saved properly, I don't know :(
  14. Offline


    It's a bit of a head scratcher for me as well, I'm not exactly the most familiar with Minecraft's world code as is, the best I can guess is that when I load an End-type world with an existing map I get conflicts with the default world_the_end map? That or it takes too long to load the world from memory and WP creates a new world thinking that the world-load failed?
    I've checked the world save, no issue there, I actually ended up replacing my world_the_end map with the new one I had been building, since then no issues through a series of restarts, so world saving isn't the issue, it happens somewhere during the load process.
    Don't go nuts trying to figure it out though, no doubt your new version won't have any issue like this. Might be something to keep in mind for testing though?

    Hi, well I may already know the problem. I didn't tested it yet, but I fixed it haha. And yes the thing I changes was in the world loading

    I would love to see a "here" command atleast for the "direction" being faced. Also if you could make a way to disable the "you teleported from X to Y" message then this would be the best portal mod out there. I can't seem to find ANY mod that DOESN'T display such message. I don't want my players KNOWING they've teleported.

    Hello, As you may know I'm working on a new version, I'm fully rewriting the plugin. It's gonna be great! The here command for the looking direction is going to be available in the new version. The messages could be turned of in the config files, I thought, or maybe in the messages.yml file, I'm not sure, sorry.

    One cool thing to know, the plugin is going to be so usefull that you could even set if that message appears when you teleport for each portal, and you could even make different messages for each portal, so you could make it so that when you teleport using a portal to any arena or something that it will return (in the chat) "You've been teleported to the arena"

    Heya Tim, I don't want to bug you, but I'm curious how long it'll be until the new version is ready? I'm not asking for an exact schedule, just are we talking weeks, months or years until release?

    Additionally, if you need anyone to assist in testing I'd be happy to volunteer, I have a couple of test rigs and a fully functioning active server that uses your mod for a TON of things. It's my favourite by far, so simple and useful :D

    About the release date for the plugin. I'm not sure, curerntly this week I've test week (not sure how it's called in english) I'll get about 3 tests every day, I don't have much time to update the plguin in this week, but I already done a lot. After that week I'm going to fully work on the plugin again. It shouldn't take longer than a month, I'ts probably even ealier like 2 weeks or so. Oh and I always like people who could test the plugin, so when I release the new version, if you could test it's new functions then.. That would be great!

    Excelent plugin... working excelent in my server, but... (always something happens)

    /wp create... :)
    clik on button...
    world: myworld...
    spawn, here, x, y ,z: any option would be ok
    angle: work exactly 180 degrees opposite to the /compass command... something wrong here ???? :'(

    I hope this could help u a bit.... by the way... thanks to this plugin my survival server is more realistic, in permissions i deleted users commands /spawn /warp /tp and just add /worldportal.use :D

    The way I've found to get the angle is to take the direction value from F3 (0,1,2,3) and multiply it by 90. So 0 remains 0, 1 becomes 90, 2 becomes 180 and 3 becomes 270. Works fine for me, compass must have a different 0 value direction.

    Thanks a lot! I hope I could release the update soon!
    About the looking direction, you already know how to check what direction (F) you're looking are. Since the default looking direction is F=0, I programmed it so that F0=0°, F1=90°, etc. That's the reason I programmed it like this.
    Another thing is that you have to know that, in the upcomming version you could also use a command to set the looking direction to the direction you're currently looking at.

    Maybe add invisible portals? Like you are walking in a room and it teleports you automatically without stepping on a pressure plate. Would you be able to do that?

    i have entered the permissions in right but when someone goes to use a portal it says they dont have the permission to use that world portal

    Try refreshing permissions, if that doesn't work then you haven't set up permissions correctly.

    Hey when you go between worlds you inventory is transferred. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?
  30. Offline


    Transferred? You mean you take your inventory with you? As far as I know there is no way to prevent players from keeping their items between worlds in the current version of WorldPortal, but Mr. Visee is working on a completely rewritten version as we speak, perhaps that will be a config option in future?
    I can't imagine it would be easy to implement, though.

    Tim Visee

    Yes Im already adding that feature, but thanks!

    Do you have any supported Permissions sytem? What permissions system are you using?

    WhiteWingDivel is right. This is going to be available in the next version.

    Thanks a lot for your great support!!
