    Stargate - The Bukkit Port. A portal plugin.
    Version: 0.6.10
    CraftBukkit: 1317
    Addons: Stargate-DHD

    Plugin Dependencies:
    Permissions 2.x/3.x (Optional)
    Register (Optional, will allow any Economy plugin to be used)

    PLEASE READ IF YOU NEED SUPPORT:
    I require a few things to offer support to you. First, I need you to enable debug mode (set debug to true in the Stargate config.yml file). Second, I need you to post your server.log file to http://pastebin.com and post a link to that in the topic. Then I need you to paste both your Stargate config.yml, and your Permissions config to http://pastebin.com and link to those as well. Without this information I will be unable to help you, so do yourself a favor and post the required information!

    This plugin supports Permissions 2.x/3.x as well as SuperPerms via the PermissionsBukkit plugin or another SuperPerms manager.
    This plugin supports Register -- This will allow use of any economy plugin that Register supports

    =============
    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:
    [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

    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

    Oh right, you are that guy. Sorry, this was obviously my fault, I read the BIG RED BOLD TEXT. I must have missed the rant you put up there that was in normal font. Also, it should throw an error, because I was sitting there right clicking signs and pressing buttons with NOTHING in response.

    Now, as for what it said, let me just post this section for fixed gates:

    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 a 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.


    Now tell me why would I follow network rules on a fixed gate that has ZERO instructions on networks. It's NOT a network gate buddy, so I'm not looking there for instructions. That's like telling me to look in the multiplayer setup for a video game when I am using single player.

    Now, I thank you for helping me, but your attitude SUCKS. I mean, a big fat black one. You're an ass, and you went off on someone who is both new to bukkit period (sorry, I wasn't here for whatever nervous breakdown you had) and read everything about your plugin, and still got confused. I am also a very technical person with a bachelor's in computer science and a master's in production. SO... just gonna throw this out there, anyone could get a little confused when you don't mention networks at all in fixed gates. I figured worst case scenario, it's a fixed gate, so the network wouldn't be used. And in THAT case... the network line would only be for players to read, hence why I even bothered putting it there.

    This whole conversation could have gone much differently with just a different attitude. You didn't do me any favors, you responded because it made YOU feel better to try and show me how much of an idiot I was. That pissed me off, it didn't make me feel gracious at all. If you were actually doing me a favor, I would right now be ragging on the other people who couldn't just gather the information and follow your big bold red text, and praising you for helping. See how that could have gone differently?

    @TheTennessee You're what passes for a BSc in Comp Sci? I feel sorry for whatever company you end up working for when they have to show you every little nuance of their system.
    That is the sign layout for EVERY SINGLE GATE, now tell me, what does it say is fixed-gate only? That's right, destination. Now, going based on common-sense, if the only thing used specifically for fixed-gates is the Destination, what can you assume about the network? That's right, that it is used for everything!

    You couldn't even test to see if maybe the network name had something to do with it, how you managed to get a BSc I do not know.

    Also, if you don't like my attitude, then stop posting in my topic, and/or use another plugin. I honestly couldn't care any less, I release this plugin because there are people out there with common sense who enjoy it.

    Have been using this plugin now since 803 and now in 818. Works absolutely fine. Thanks for this easy to use, command-line free, good documented and well developed plugin.

    Seriously, can't see why anyone is complaining or posting in general that they can't figure out how it works.

    FYI, using craftbukkit 819 (not recommended) and further, multiworld is working like a charm.

    Once again, thanks for the plugin.

    Feature request:
    I've noticed the portal use effect works now in SMP, you should add an optional delay before being warped so the effect will appear for longer than 0.1 seconds.
    Works perfectly on b819 by the way :)
    Edit: Oh, and another request - can you make it so people don't get set on fire/take damage when they go through a portal where portal-open is set to lava (if possible)? I had to change the netherstone gate I made to use something else than lava because it was murdering people :p

    Yeah its super weird... I dont expect it to be reproduced it just happened out of the total blue no idea how, I hopped onto the server just now (Couple hours later) and they are gone (I Been away for 3-4 hours) Ill try to see if I can reproduce it actually in a couple minutes when i got some time to play
    -
    Lots of people travel with like 4-5 tamed wolves on my server, i guess they might've glitched somehow.
    -
    brb ... boston vs vancouver <3 :D
    -
    Edit: Cant reproduce it now.... but will let you know if i figure out how it was done. Was a one time thing and was in ALL portals, so weird.
    -
    Edit2: The wolves are at it again, gaurding well :p lol darn it I need to reproduce this and find out how they are doing it.

    I dont know if it's have already been asked but ill ask here.
    When im taking a gate from normal world to nether im getting disconnected by server because of this....

    21:53:48 [ATTENTION] heliastein moved too quickly! Elapsed ticks: 9, Distance change: 559724.7584008132

    And if i try to use simple nether portal i got some shit between my different nether portal so exemple if i have 2 nether portal in the real worl, i used one to come in the nether when i tryed to come back in the real world ive been teleported to my secon nether portal....
    I tryed to destroy the secon nether portal and when ive retry it it's have make an other nether portal i dont know where.

    If I were to ask you to add a specific feature, would you, depending on how easy or difficult implementing such a feature would be, or do you stand firm with your declaration of "I will not be answering any stupid questions, nor adding any requested features."

    I only ask this because I don't want you to refer me to the above line, and would instead rather just be sure whether or not you would actually implement a feature at all.

    As for your plugin itself, I have thoroughly enjoyed it for a long time, since about a few months before Beta, whenever that was. Any problems I've ever had with this plugin were simply my forgetfulness, or the problem of another plugin.

    In all of the bukkit forums, I haven't seen as many people being so unreasonable, stubborn, and flat-out rude to a plugin's developer, and hope that you know that not all of your users are like that, and hope you will continue to upkeep this plugin, as it's among my favorite plugins bukkit offers, if not my favorite.

    Thank you for taking the time to consider this.

    Posting this as I would love to see it merged in, or get info from other users if there is an alternative way of forcing chunks to stay in server memory.

    From the redstone chips SensorLibrary:
    beacon - Can force map chunks to stay loaded and monitors whether chunks in a region are loaded or not.

    It sounds very useful to force your gate hubs to stay loaded at all times. As they are designed by the gate makers to be fast transport locations. Using the above chip would thus save some performance in specific gate filled areas.
    BUT
    With hundreds of gates it loses it's not smart to enable this behaviour on every gate, so I was wondering if opening the gate could shave off a second of transport loading time by getting the chunk ahead of time (and maybe the 8 around it as well).

    Or is this already being done?

    My question thus becomes:
    - If a gate opens but nobody is around to see it open, is it loaded and opened or does it wait with loading chunks untill the player steps through?

    which translates into the request:
    - can you get the gate to load the other side as soon as it opens?

    Feel free to use: "I will not be answering any stupid questions, nor adding any requested features." against me, I just didn't want this idea to go undocumented.

    Still loving the elegance and simplicity of this plug-in.
    Thanks again

    Do you like the idea of having a configurable limit on the number of stargates a network can have?

    This was the main problem with stargates on another server I used to use, people didn't often use different networks and the Public network soon had about 70+ stargates, which made finding your stargate annoying. Even worse, was when you accidentally passed yours, and you had to scroll through the entire list again. I'm starting my own server, and was hoping to try and eliminate that problem before it happens.

    Please let me know what you think of this, be it positive or negative feedback.

    @MufinMcFlufin You could always use gate network permissions to bypass this issue, or only give users personal gate creation (They can only create gates with their name as the network).
    I will think over whether I want to add a limited number of gates though. It wouldn't be too hard for an overall hard limit for every network, but having it configurable per-network would be a little tougher.

    I actually had more in mind a server-wide limit, but I suppose per-network works as well.

    @MufinMcFlufin A user who wants the simple solution? Say it ain't so! Haha. I'll look into adding that. I've got a few features on the go at the moment, so that'll be easy enough to add while I'm at it.

    Hey, i'm using Multiverse with Stargate. Whenever i go through a Stargate that goes to a different world, i spawn in some random place and then fall through the world infinitely... This can be fixed ONLY by reconnecting or by using a Multiverse teleport command, what can i do?

    Please Help! :(

    The plugin author is not likely to respond to your problem for a few reasons. First being that the OP specifically states and I quote
    "READ THE FOLLOWING IF YOU WANT SUPPORT:

    If you want help then please post your server.log, your permissions config file and your stargate config file to http://pastebin.com . If you don't post these I reserve the right to yell at you and/or ignore your post. EVERY POST REQUESTING ASSISTANCE WITH A BUG OR CLAIMING THE PLUGIN DOESN'T WORK SHOULD BE ACCOMPANIED BY THESE FILES!" <Although in the OP it is in huge bold red text>


    Second, you should post your craftbukkit build and version of stargate. Third this sounds like the issue bukkit had with it's handling of teleporting with build 818, and that had nothing to do with this plugin but an internal bukkit issue.

    If you need help with your plugin you really need to include as much info as possible about your system, log file (even if there are'nt errors) bukkit version and anything else that might help, especially the info the OP specifically states you must have for any help.

    I will say that if you are using build 818 of bukkit you should update to new RB. Especially if you want to use multi-world functionality.

    @heliastein First off, I won't help you with any version lower than what's stated in the first post/title (b860). Second, as stated in the first post, Stargate is not currently compatible with servers running with the built-in nether enabled:
    @PixelTech You won't be getting support from me, there's absolutely no need to post in giant bold text in the middle of this topic, so hopefully somebody else is feeling generous enough to help you.

    @Vhab I'll look into that, never seen that much console spam before from that message.
