Traincarts adds command selectors that can be used to target trains, or passengers of trains, similar to how vanilla minecraft's @e selector works. Besides the usual position-based selector filters, other train properties can be used to select trains that match specific criteria. These selectors can be used with other plugins. If a selector targets more than one player/train, then the entire command is repeated for every player/train result.
Two selectors exist:
@ptrain. Both accept identical selector conditions, which will be discussed on the rest of this page.
To quickly view what conditions are available in-game, use a Traincarts command like
/train info --train @ptrain[ which will then auto-complete and show suggestions of supported conditions.
Quick Command Examples
|/say hello @ptrain[distance=..5]||Message "hello" to the passengers of all trains 5 blocks away or less|
|/kick @ptrain[name=train23]||Kicks players inside train with name 'train23'|
|/train destroy --train @train[destination=InterState5]||Destroy the trains heading for InterState5|
|/train eject --train @train[dx=-2..2,dy=-3..3,dz=-2..2]||Eject the trains within a cuboid range of the sender|
|/train launch 0.5 --options 2 --train @train[tag=express]||Launches the train with tag 'express' to a speed of 0.5 over 2 blocks distance|
Multiple conditions can be specified, which are all AND-ed together. All number-based conditions support Minecraft range syntax:
a..b. For example,
-5..5 (-5 to 5),
..6 (6 or less) and
12.. (12 or more). Prefixing the condition value with
! will make it evaluate as 'not'.
In all examples below
@train can be substituted with
@ptrain to instead target the player passengers of the trains.
x/y/z conditions specify where on the world trains should be selected. This specifies a cuboid range. The
dx/dy/dz can also be specified to grow this cuboid. If only dx/dy/dz are specified, then the x/y/z of the sender is used. The
world condition can optionally be specified to operate on other worlds, or to run from a server terminal where no world can be inferred.
|@train[x=10..12,y=23..56,z=-100..-80]||All trains in cuboid (10, 23, -100) -> (12, 56, 80)|
|@train[x=10,y=23,z=-100,dx=2,dy=33,dz=20]||Same as above, but specified with dx/dy/dz to 'grow' the cuboid|
|@train[x=10,y=10,z=10,dx=-2..2,dy=-10..10,dz=-2..2]||Complex use: grows the cuboid from point (10, 10, 10) in both directions. This becomes cuboid (8, 0, 8) -> (12, 20, 12)|
|@train[dx=-10..10,dy=-5..5,dz=-10..10]||Selects a cuboid around the sender (command block / player) of the command|
|@train[world=world_the_end,x=10,y=89,z=-20,dx=-10..10,dy=-10..10,dz=-10..10]||The world name to target can be used to target trains on other worlds|
distance condition filters trains based on distance to the sender, or a cuboid specified. This is a spherical distance.
|@train[distance=..10]||All trains 10 blocks or less away from the sender|
|@train[distance=1000..]||All trains 1000 blocks away or more from the sender|
|@train[x=100,y=50,z=-100,distance=..5]||All trains 5 blocks or less away from coordinate (100, 50, -100)|
|@train[x=10,y=10,z=10,dx=50,dz=50,distance=..10]||All trains 10 blocks or less away from cuboid (10, 10, 10) -> (60, 10, 60)|
Sort and Limit
limit conditions can be used to pick a single result from many based on distance, or to pick limited results at random. Sort supports conditions
random. Limit must be a natural integer.
|@train[distance=..100,sort=random,limit=1]||Picks a single random train 100 blocks away or less|
|@train[distance=..100,sort=nearest,limit=2]||Picks at most 2 nearest trains, 100 blocks away or less|
|@train[distance=1000..,sort=furthest,limit=10]||Picks at most 10 trains furthest away, 1000 blocks distance away or more|
name condition can be used to select trains by name, or a name pattern. Supports the same wildcard pattern rules as the remote control syntax.
|@train[name=train12]||Selects train with name 'train12'|
|@train[name=Intercity*Express]||Selects trains with name starting with "Intercity" and ending with "Express"|
|@train[name=*]||Selects all trains on the world|
tag condition, which can be specified multiple times, can be used to select the tags assigned to trains and filter on those. Like the name condition, this supports a wildcard pattern. This only checks that a particular tag is or isn't present, not that it is the only tag present.
|@train[tag=mytag]||Selects trains that have tag 'mytag'|
|@train[tag=*fast,tag=!express]||Selects trains that have a tag ending with 'fast', but do not have tag 'express'|
playerpassengers conditions select the trains that meet a certain number of (player) passengers. This supports the range command to check for 'at least' a number of passengers, such as
derailed condition selects trains that have derailed. For example:
unloaded condition selects trains that are inside unloaded chunks and are therefore no longer simulated. Example:
Trains that keep chunks loaded do not unload.
speed condition (alias:
velocity) selects trains that move at a certain speed. This is the actual movement speed, which is at most the speed limit set for the train. Example:
@train[speed=0] for trains that are not moving.
More might be added in the future, but the additional properties can be used to filter the selection
|destination||Destination set for the train|
|friction||Friction modifier of the train (default: 1)|
|gravity||Gravity modifier of the train (default: 1)|
|keepchunksloaded||Whether the train keeps nearby chunks loaded|
|speedlimit||Speed limit set for the train|
|ticket||Same checks as for tags, but for ticket names instead|
