Heypoday, iGates allows you to create portals to teleport your players. You can activate and desactivate those and fill them with blocks automatically. You can also retain liquids in it, like water or lava. I tried to make as simple as possible I hope you'll enjoy it. :)

/!\ This plugin needs PluginBaker to work. Don't forget to install it !

Authors: Ptibiscuit

How to use


There's 2 configuration, situated in config.yml:

  • retain_liquid: If set to true, water and lava won't spread outside the "from" areas. Usefull to create that awesome & legendary effect of wall of water ! <3
  • display_message_selection: If it's set to true, when you use the woodaxe to make a selection, it will display a message like "Selection complete !". Turn to false when you have WorldEdit or an other plugin that display that kind of message.

Commands & Permissions

/!\ When there's an argument called FillType, it means the type of block which will be filled in the "from" areas, you have to write one of those type of block, here is the list: portal, end_portal, water, lava, web, null (= nothing). When you will turn on a portal, the "from" areas will be filled with that type of block. :) Commands for creating and manage portals:

  • /igcreate <Tag> <FillType> (igates.portal.edit.create): Create a portal with the given name and the given FillType. Btw, the "to" point of the portal is automatically set to your position, but you can change it. ;)
  • /igdelete <Tag> (igates.portal.edit.delete): Delete a portal.
  • /iglist (igates.portal.list): List all the portals. Command fors editing portal:
  • /igaddfrom <Tag> (igates.portal.edit.addfrom): Add a "from" area for the given portal. A "from" area is an area where the player will be teleported to the "to" point. Make a selection with the woodaxe before using that command. :)
  • /igclearfroms <Tag> (igates.portal.edit.clearfroms): Remove all the "from" areas of the give portal
  • /igset <on/off> <Tag> (igates.portal.edit.set.on ou igates.portal.edit.set.off): Turn on or off a portal.
  • /igset filltype <Tag> <FillType> (igates.portal.edit.set.filltype): Set the filltype of a portal.
  • /igset price <Tag> <Price> (igates.portal.edit.set.price): Set the economy price of a portal.
  • /igset to <Tag> (igates.portal.edit.set.to):Set the "to" point of the given portal in your position.

There are some others permissions:

  • igates.make_selection: Allow player to make selection with the woodaxe.
  • igates.god: Player don't have to pay when he uses a portal.
  • There are differents kind of permissions you can give to allow a player to use portals. First, you can simply give "igates.portal.use", it allows the player to use all portals. But, you can instead give a permission to allow the player to use just one kind of portals (water, lava, portal, ...), it is "igates.portal.use.<FillType>" (For example, "igates.portal.use.water" or "igates.portal.use.lava", ...)

Step to step tutorial

What ? That bunch of commands has made you sick ? Okay, read that tutorial to create a portal. :)

  1. Use the command /igcreate <Tag> <FillType> to create the portal. For this tuto, we'll use /igcreate tuto portal.
  2. Go where you want the portal teleports and use /igset to tuto.
  3. Take a woodaxe and make a selection with Right-Click and Left-Click, exactly like with WorldEdit. When the portal will be activated, players in that selection will be teleported to the "to" point.
  4. Use /igaddfrom tuto when you've got you're selection to add it to the portal.
  5. Turn on the portal by using /igset on tuto, normally, the "from" area you've had selected will be filled of portal block.
  6. Enter the "from" zone and you'll be teleported !

If you prefer a tutorial video than letters, here is a tutorial made by DMWandxTMx. :)

    @EatingEmoKids: Go

    I can second that... An existing and working portal will teleport player from its coords in ALL worlds! f.e. there is a portal in world1 teleporting to somewhere in any other world.... a player walking through the coordinates of that portal in world2 or worldX will be teleported too!

    A simple fix is to have the permission for this kind of portal diaabled in that world... but this will disable ALL portals in a world... :/

    Maybe there should be a permission per portal (name)..

    PS: Fixed it myself...

    @awesomeandrandom: Go

    In your permissions folder for example if you use PermissionsEX you'll go to Server>Plugins>PermissionsEX>Permissions and, give the node igates.portal.use to the group .

    @MsPtibiscuit there appears to be an issue in 1.7.4 with multiworld. I've set a portal that has a from position in a second world called "games", this portal works and teleports players back to the to position which is in the world "world", however, if you travel to the same cords as the from position which is in "games" but your in the "world" world, it does not show the water/portal effect but if you walk though the air it teleports you to the to world location.

    Can this be fixed?

    Thanks, Matt
