Several types of portals on display

Introduction

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

Enable

This portal behavior must be enabled in MyWorlds' config.yml before they can be used. If portal signs aren't working, first check that all relevant portal types are enabled:

# Turns different types of portals on or off
# When the portal is disabled, MyWorlds will not handle the portal's logic
enabledPortals:
  # Turns handling of nether portal teleportation on or off
  # Vanilla Minecraft will handle nether portals when disabled
  netherPortal: true
  # Turns handling of end portal teleportation on or off
  # Vanilla Minecraft will handle end portals when disabled
  endPortal: true
  # Enables or disables the water stream portals
  waterPortal: true

Usage

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:

Gives an item to place end/nether portals
Command: /world giveportal [end/nether]
Permission: myworlds.world.giveportal


Water portals

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.

Portal Sign

Portal sign is placed below a nether portal, teleporting players inside

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.

Placement

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

Please see the /world teleport and /tpp commands on the Commands page
