Besides commands, this plugin comes with the simplest cross-world teleportation solution: Actual portals. Walk from world to world simply, by walking into a portal. To make a portal, all you have to do is place a [portal] sign nearby a block structure that looks like a portal.
There are three types of portals to choose from:
- Nether portals
- End portals
- Water portals
Nether portals and End gateways
Standard nether portals and end gateways can also be used as portals. For a custom frame or shape, this command can be used to get a special item to place them down:
|Command:||/world giveportal [end/nether]|
To use water as a portal, the water must be surrounded on at least two sides with a solid block and at least one side with open air. This is to prevent random lakes to act as portals. With a hole in the ground you can prevent the water from flooding outwards. Water is counted as a solid block, so they can be infinitely wide.
For each line:
- on the first line: [portal]
- on the second line the portal name. You can teleport to this portal by this name, for example, with /tpp [name].
- on the third line the portal or world name to teleport to. This is taken when the portal is entered.
- optionally on the fourth line the destination display name (otherwise uses portal/world name on third line). Can be left empty.
Players are teleported to the first open space above the portal sign. You can put the portal sign underground, and the player will be teleported on top of the solid blocks above. It is safe to put the portal sign below the portal itself, cyclical teleports are prevented.
Cleaning up portals
If you want to remove a portal you lost, you can remove the saved portal data from: root\plugins\My Worlds\portals.txt
Teleporting to portals
