Home Stations

Default Station



HomeStations offers home <-> spawn teleportation via special "stations". This is a nice alternative to the common /home plugins, but without the need of commands.

A station is a special structure built like shown on the following image (it's not (yet) customizable):
Note, that while a station has to be built like this, you can make the station prettier by building something around, just the way you like it.
You could for example place some glowstone around or have some sort of podium with stairs around the emerald block.

The structure of a station.

The server admins can build Server-Stations at their spawn(s) or special locations

An admin can turn a normal home-station into a server-station by standing on the emerald block and typing /homestations addSpawn.
Additionally server admins can define their main-server-station. Players can then teleport from normal home-stations to this spawn-station, just by clicking the upper button of a normal home-station.

Players can build their own home-stations where ever they want

However, players can only set one station as their "home" (just like /sethome in other plugins), by clicking the lower button on the station they want.

Teleporting

Now, if a main spawn station is defined and a player has set his home station via the bottom button, he can teleport from all spawn stations (stations an admin has defined as spawn station via /homestations addSpawn) to their home station, and they can teleport from all normal other home stations to the main spawn station.
They teleport by simple clicking the upper button of a station.

Commands

Aliases for "homestations" are: "homestation", "hs"
/homestations addSpawn - Defines a normal station as spawn station.
/homestations setMainSpawn - Defines the main spawn station. It doesn't matter if this station was a spawn station already before.

Permissions

homestation.use - Allows using of those stations.
homestation.admin - Allows defining of spawn stations and setting of the main spawn station.

    I'd like to report a bug. Players before version 1.3 had only one set of coordinates in their files in PlayerData folder. The plugin works perfectly for them. But when somebody changes his home station or chooses a spawn station (basicly when player data is modified for the first time at newer version) the plugin adds second set of coordinates to the file (or "not set"). That's when a bug appears. If such player logs out and then logs in he can't teleport to his home station. The plugin seems to not be able to read the player's file when it contains more than one station saved. It works only when the player data is loaded to memory.

    v 1.4

    • Automatically set the player's spawn location the the main spawn location when the player doesn't have selected a spawn location for the first time. No longer continueally print the "no spawn location selected" message.

    @blablubbabc: Go

    Thank you very much ^^

    Players can teleport to their home and from there to the right spawn station though. And for people who are using this for some adventure maps, they can simply stay with older versions. Once again thank you.

    @Co0sh: Go

    v1.3

    • Each player can now select his spawn station by clicking the lower button of a spawn station. Spawn stations can no longer work as home station. If the player has no spawn station selected yet, he will teleport to the main spawn station.
    • Added some new messages and change some old ones.
    • Might have slightly changed the default firework effect.

    @Co0sh: Go

    Players can no longer teleport from one spawn station to another by this change though. That's why I didn't change this earlier: I wanted to think about it a bit more before changing this behavior.

    @blablubbabc: Go

    When can I expect an update with this feature? I already have several villages on my server and I need it to develop full RPG experience. I would really appreciate if you would add this soon.

    @Co0sh: Go

    Yeah, that sounds like a nice feature.

  • Avatar of Co0sh Co0sh Jan 26, 2014 at 20:34 UTC - 0 likes

    Could you make it so a player can choose his spawn station? An admin could set up several spawns and players could choose which one to use by pressing lower button. Now it would only set home in spawn station. I need this feature to let players choose which village they want to spawn in.

    @Baffu: Go

    You can't detect the building of them, but I could add a setting to disable using of them in certain worlds (ignoring button presses then).
