THE ORIGINAL GOD OF WAR PLUGIN
<updated for version 4.1>
Thor is a plugin that allows players to make various things happen (like lightning) at certain locations by clicking at that location with a tool. Unlike other plugins, which require a host of commands to be typed (which takes FOREVER), you just have to type what you want to happen at the start, and then click when and where you want it to happen. As many times as you like; you don't have to keep typing commands.
Essentially, Thor adds what is like magic wands to the Bukkit server. Inspired by the fact that the 'wand' (originally a stone axe (though it can now be configured in the config file to be whatever you want)) kind of looks like a hammer and gives the user godly power, the plugin was called Thor (god of thunder). The wand can target a location in the cross hairs of your player and make something happen at the target. the something comes in the form of the powers detailed below.
Thor's hammer is the all-powerful weapon, but single-power tools can be configured as well. I call these "power tools". New in 4.1 is that each power tool can individually be configured with item meta data, including multiple enchantments, a name, and whatever lore ("tool tips") you want. This allows map makers to configure special power tools and goals of, or tools required to, complete a quest. (Ex. need to construct a teleport tool to leap across a unpassable chasm, but to contract that you need to kill an enderman.)
"Powers" are the things that can be done at the location right (or left) clicked. These are (in the latest version):
- /thor Lightning: Casts a lightning bolt at the location they are targeting with the tool.
- /thor Explode: Causes an explosion at the location they are targeting with the tool.
- /thor Wolves: Spawns an angry wolf at the location they are targeting with the tool.
- /thor Teleport: Teleports the player from his current location to the location they are targeting with the tool. Note: works farther than ender pearls, and player takes no damage.
- /thor Fireball: Makes the player throw a fireball at the location they are targeting with the tool
- /thor Fire: Sets the block targeted on fire. Does not work for entities
- In addition, the /thor Stop action switches off any powers
- AND if you don't have or forgot what the item that you configured Thor's hammer to be was, "/thor give" gives you it, and tells you whether it will take place when you left click or right click.
- Note that the provided hammer is enchanted just to make it look cool (and last longer), and it currently required if you make one yourself.
- /thor creeper: Spawns a creeper at the location they are targeting with the tool
- /thor zombie: Spawns a zombie at the location they are targeting with the tool
- /thor enderman: Spawns an enderman at the location they are targeting with the tool
- /thor dragon: Spawns an ender dragon at the location they are targeting with the tool
- /thor skeleton: Spawns a skeleton at the location they are targeting with the tool
- /thor villager: Spawns a villager at the location they are targeting with the tool
- /thor cow: Spawns a cow at the location they are targeting with the tool
- /thor delete: Deletes the block they are targeting with the tool
- /thor Napalm: Throws a fire charge at the location targeted. Works for entities and blocks, but a bit slower than "fire"
- /thor list: lists who has or is using Thor powers. Usable from console
- /thor wither: spawns a wither
- /thor pigman: spawns an armed, angry, zombie pigman
- /thor bats: spawns bats
- /thor blaze: spawns a blaze
- /thor spider: spawns a spider
- /thor witch: spawns a witch
- /thor cavespider: spawns a cave spider
Crafting is enabled by default, but can be turned off with the enableCrafting config item.
Supports a recipe to craft Thor's hammer, the use thereof being limited by the power-specific permissions. Note that the supplied hammer now includes a special name, lore, and an enchantment. If you attempt to use a plain stone axe (i.e. the default item) as Mjollnir, it will not be recognized unless it has the same name, enchantment and some lore. If you find that too difficult, it was designed to be such. This allows admins/map designers to make Mjollnir truly rare, as a quest item or a reward. Or just use thor give command.
Craft with two anvils, two iron, and a nether star:
Power Tool Crafting
New in 4.1, you can now configure crafting recipes to construct individual power tools. You can select what items you want (and therefore how hard it is to construct) what recipe you want, whether shaped or shapeless, By combining tool type (of different durabilities) with durability impact, you can control how many casts each tool works for, from one to infinite. If the tool doesn't last long enough, add a Durability enchantment (see below).
If you configure tools or weapons as the power tool item, then the item can also be repaired on an anvil, with the base item's element (ex. gold axe can be repaired with gold ingots) while retaining all its enchantments, name, and lore. Of course, it might cost a lot of XP.
If you don't configure a tool or weapon, it still can work even with a name and lore, but any durability impact will use it up. *Poof*!
Installation & Usage
Copy and paste the latest thor .jar into your plugins folder (removing any older versions of the plugin)
Using a power tool requires no commands, just right (or left) clicking. Shift-clicking avoids using the Thor power (ex. to feed a bone power tool to a wolf).
When on the server, use /Thor [Action] , where Action is one of the above actions. Now whenever you left click anywhere with stone axe [ID 275] (by default, this can be changed by altering the WandID field in the config file) the action will happen, even if it is out of reach (up to a distance of 256 blocks). For example, using /Thor explode would make you cause an explosion anywhere you clicked with the 'wand'

Moved to this separate page.
- Add "ground pound" power that throws blocks and entities in the air. Sounds cool and not sure how to do it yet.
- Add a generic "spawn" power to allow spawning any creature by name.
- Add thor.thor to even use the command at all
Add Permissions check on <power>.itemID usage. Add configurable tool metadata (name, enchant, lore) so that power tools can be made more rare. Add crafting recipes to make power-specific items. Maybe use anvil instead Add configurable crafting recipes.
