CreativeGates is a plugin that allows you to create teleportation gates without running a single command. The plugin does not impose design restrictions. Design the gate frame any way you like.

Useful Links

How to Use

  1. Build a gate frame with any materials you like.
  2. Name a clock with an anvil.
  3. Hit the insite of the frame with the clock
  4. Gates using the same clock name will connect to each other.


  • Ensure you have Java 7 installed.
  • Stop the server.
  • Put mcore.jar in the plugins folder. Download MCore here on BukkitDev.
  • Put CreativeGates.jar in the plugins folder.
  • Start the server.
  • Configure the mcore aspects and multiverses using the commands.
  • Modify /mstore/creativegates_mconf/instance.json to your liking.
  • Modify /mstore/creativegates_conf@universe/instance.json to your liking.
  • Configure permissions. CreativeGates only has two nodes.

Portal vs Water

CreativeGates can use either portal blocks or water blocks for portal content. You decide which to use in the "uconf".

For portal blocks to work without bugs you must open your and set allow-nether=false. This will disable the generation of the vanilla nether map and the vanilla nether portals. This is how we do it on MassiveCraft. You can add one, two or even three custom nether worlds using a world manager plugin later on.

For water blocks to work you don't need to do anything special. If you want the vanilla nether world and portals you probably want to change to water portals in the config. Otherwise players entering nether gates in the nether might exit through creative gates.


What are the permissions? The commands?

    I admit my video is crappy. Does anyone know anything better at recording file configs than bandicam? Bandicam works good in game but not for stuff like this...Sry

    I think you would change that water line to true....

    Restricting the gate

    Magma Cream

    Magma cream can be used on the gate to toggle whether the gate is restricted. Only the creator of the gate can do this. If the gate is restricted only the creator can use tools on the gate. This will for example make the network name secret.

    It seems anyone can use the blaze tool to close portals. Can this be fixed?

    @sorrow123444: Go

    I haven't had any use in restricting gates because I use them like Warps but if you look in the json file it has this...

      "networkId": "south",
      "restricted": false,
      "enterEnabled": true,
      "exitEnabled": false,

    I hope this helps!
