yo! what is this sick plugin this plugin lets you give names to different areas of your world. then when you wander about it'll tell you when you're arriving in different areas, as if you were playing world of warcraft or some nonsense. it also gives a /who command that tells you which named place everyone is in. as simple as that! it doesn't change the actual minecraft gameplay at all downloads - updated to 1.2! interest.jar interest_src.zip installation put interest.jar in your plugins directory create a subdirectory called interest within the plugins directory (might not even need to do this) you shouldn't have to, but if place data isn't being saved you can manually create a file called places.txt within the interest subdirectory commands /mark name creates an area called name at your current in-game location /mark r:## name is the same as above, but the maximum radius of the area is limited by the ## value (rather than being potentially infinite) /mark x:## y:## z:## name is the same as above, but the area is constrained to a certain distance along each axis (i.e., a cuboid). note that the x, y and z values count in both directions so the sides of the cuboid are actually double the axis value, centered on your position. each axis is optional - you can specify only one or two axes if you like /unmark removes the nearest area /nearest tells you which area you are in and gives the coordinates of its original marker (this is what /unmark will remove if you use it) /who or /where lists all players and the names of the areas they're currently in /who name (or /where name) gives the area and exact coordinates of the player called name the idea is you divide the world into areas by creating points. every time you use the /mark command, a point is created at your current location. at any given moment, whichever point you're closest to is your current area. this makes it very easy to create different areas - you don't need to mark the boundary or anything, just stand roughly in the middle of your house and type /name My House. then go to your farm and type /name My Farm. suddenly the world's split into two regions, and you'll know whether you're closer to Your House or Your Farm. if you need more complex shapes, you can mark two or more nearby points with the same name and then those areas will "join up" to become one big area. for the geometrically-inclined, this method partitions the world into a bunch of arbitrary polyhedra (whose faces are planes equidistant to a pair of marked points). however, it does mean that areas can be infinite - e.g., if you just create one area called My House then your entire world will be My House, since no matter where you are the closest place is My House. but you can venture out into the wildernesses and name them and then it makes a bit more sense UPDATE as of 1.1 you can use the radius option to limit the maximum distance at which you'll still be in a given area someone might have made something like this before. I don't know. it doesn't have permissions or anything cause I live on a cool server with cool people. you can change the source if you want that configuration file - supported as of 1.2 for further customization, create a file called config.txt in the interest subdirectory with the following content Code: ops-only=0 disable-who=0 entering=##3entering ##f$1 leaving=##3entering wilderness who-head=##e$1 player(s) online: who-line-place=##e+ ##f$1 ##e- ##f$2 who-line-no-place=##e+ ##f$1 ##e- ##fwilderness these are the default values (i.e., same as if there were no config.txt). edit as you wish. if ops-only is 1, only ops can use /mark and /unmark if disable-who is 1, /who is disabled (/where still works) - in case of conflict entering is the message displayed when you enter an area. $1 gives the name of the area leaving is the message displayed when you leave an area. $1 (not used by default) gives the name of the area who-head is the header of the /who command. $1 gives the number of players online who-line-place is the line displayed for players who are currently in an area. $1 gives the player name, $2 gives the area name who-line-no-place is the line displayed for players who are not currently in any area. $1 gives the player name double hash symbols (##) are substituted with § for colour codes. secret fact: this also works for area names now!
