SignUtilities

Default minecart position

SignUtilities

SignUtilities provides useful commands and other features for signs.

Features

  • Change text color on signs via the /setcolor command or using &4Red text for example.
  • Copy and paste text on signs. You can even copy and paste one line at a time.
  • A news system. Add news to your news paper and players can right-click on the sign to read it.
  • Command signs - Enter [cmd] on the first line of a sign then the command with the arguments on the other lines as if writing it in the chat.
  • Spawn minecarts or boats from a chest.
  • Activate signs with redstone.
  • More...

Commands and Permissions

All permissions default to true unless otherwise specified. Currently only signutilities.commands.snewsp for the /snewsp command is false meaning if you want players to be able to edit all news papers (not just their own) give them this permission.

    v1.19.0 Beta

    • Added boat signs which are similar to minecart signs but dispense boats instead.
    • Will properly place boats and minecarts back in the chest when the plugin is disabled.

    New idea was suggested. Boat dispensing signs that work like the minecart signs but with boats on water instead of minecarts on track.

    Can you write color codes with this? You know like: &6Hello Turns out in Gold. Can you? If not that sucks.

    Ok I rewrote the config stuff and a little bit of other things and it seems to be ok again. Now I am going to fix that bug with the news signs.
