TravelPortals

This is a transportation plugin for Bukkit which allows for quick teleportation between any number of locations or worlds. Users build portals using 7 obsidian, a door and a redstone torch, then are able to link them to wherever they choose using a few simple commands.

The youtube video below shows how the plugin works:

For in-game help, you can also type /portal help.

More information and downloads are available on the BukkitDev Page

    i tested your plugin and i like it

    but i have some suggestions :) ..

    – why not use the classic portal shape, with blocks avobe and beyond? (tiny version, 1×2 size, surrouded by 2 blocks at sides, 1 block up and down)
    – why not omit the need of having a door? (can i replace it by air?)
    – i would like to block activating portals in nether and the end (by drying its water inside for example as it should be)
    – (bug?) sometimes i am just standing next to portal and it triggers, sometimes i enter the portal and doesnt work (v1.7.2)
    – some plugins need that you look at some specific block (select with your crosshair) to do something (eg. mailitems), maybe you can use this function in where you look inside portal to name, warp and info
    – maybe you can check if your coords are exactly the same as the portal to triggers, considering the bottom block of the 2 blocks of water inside as the portal coords
    – do you know some other custom portal plugin that do these things?
    – maybe you can popup a tooltip (like tag names over head) with destination, when you look at inside portals :D

    i would like if you answer me by mail please, thanks ;)

    Firstly, most discussion/etc on this plugin goes on around the bukkitdev page. I still check this, but that contains the most up-to-date information. Just FYI.

    So, I’ll respond to your questions in order.
    – why not use the classic portal shape, with blocks avobe and beyond? (tiny version, 1×2 size, surrouded by 2 blocks at sides, 1 block up and down)
    — I went with the different portal shape due to wanting a unique and more compact style of portal. When I first wrote this, making a 2×1 portal with actual portal blocks was actually impossible. The config.yml file does let you replace any materials you want. You can try the portal material and see how it looks.
    – why not omit the need of having a door? (can i replace it by air?)
    — The original idea was to up the cost slightly (different materials) and to keep the water in. You should be able to replace it with air in the config files though, yes.
    – i would like to block activating portals in nether and the end (by drying its water inside for example as it should be)
    — The plugin supports permissions. Just forbid making portals in the nether/end for all players using that. (You may need to turn on permission support in the config file)
    – (bug?) sometimes i am just standing next to portal and it triggers, sometimes i enter the portal and doesnt work (v1.7.2)
    — This is not nearly enough information to go on. I can’t really help you without more than that. If you see this and can provide some more information to help me reproduce the problem, please report it on the bug tracker. http://bugs.cpprograms.net/projects/travelportals or on the bukkitdev page.
    – some plugins need that you look at some specific block (select with your crosshair) to do something (eg. mailitems), maybe you can use this function in where you look inside portal to name, warp and info
    — Not a bad idea, but I’d be worried about efficiency. The plugin was written a number of years ago in a somewhat inefficient way, and looking them up takes time. With the default config, we’d be looking up the list of portals whenever you looked at water, and it would get really laggy. I may look into doing this in an efficient way at some point.
    – maybe you can check if your coords are exactly the same as the portal to triggers, considering the bottom block of the 2 blocks of water inside as the portal coords
    — Afraid I didn’t understand this at all, sorry.
    – do you know some other custom portal plugin that do these things?
    — I haven’t seen anything else like this, but I’ve kind of fallen out of Bukkit community as of late. I’d take a look at popular plugins on the BukkitDev site, and see what you can find.
    – maybe you can popup a tooltip (like tag names over head) with destination, when you look at inside portals :D
    — I do like this idea, but like the point above, efficiency is a concern. I’ll throw something onto the bug tracker with this idea, and if I ever get time again I’ll see if I can find a way.
