Craft Inc. Gates


Craft Inc. Gates

This awesome plugin lets you travel to far away places and worlds faster than light! Just create a gate at any location and set an exit somewhere else.

This has been made available by the hard work of the research and development department of the Craft Inc. Corporation. Under the lead of Professor Ddidderr Craftman scientists worked years to find a way to bend time and space inside the Minecraft universe to enable ultra fast transportation.

Now it is time for you to try out this wonderful plugin. Simply install, create a gate and feel the funny tickle inside your brain while traveling.*

The key features of this are:

  • Dynmap integration (Demo)
  • Gates with and without frames
  • Gates consisting of portal blocks and gates made of air (so called hidden gates)
  • Gates with destinations in different worlds
  • Gates with custom shapes (gates can look any way you want)
  • Riding through gates

*The Craft Inc. Corporation won't take any responsibility for seasickness, memory loss and sudden suffocation in walls while traveling with one of our gates!


Who can create a gate?

Have a look at the Permissions page.

Who can destroy a gate?

Anyone if you do not use a third-party protection plugin like Grief Prevention.

Is there a IConnomy integration? Features for user to dial other gates etc?

Nope. We currently don't plan to integrate such features. If you really need such an integration please inform us. If there are a lot of people requesting such features we might change our mind.

Is there a list of all commands?

Sure, type /gate help in-game or have a look at the Commands page.

When I destroy the frame of a gate it stops working. Shouldn't it still work?

Yes and no. To make gates work without a frame you need to tweak the checkForBrokenGateFrames setting. Have a look at the Configuration page for more information.


With this plugin you can create gates which will teleport players anywhere you want. The gates can look any way you like.

To make the gate work place yourself inside a newly created gate frame and type /gate new [id]. Afterwards walk to the destination of your gate and type /gate exit [id] to set the destination. With /gate open [id] you can get your newly created gate to work.

To hide a gate simply call /gate hide [id]. Now that gate won’t be made of purple portal blocks while open.

Have a look at the Commands page to find out how to modify gates even further.

    Help! Why can I see portals in the distance at about 17 chunk. I tested this with me friend he can also see them. How can I get rid of it?

    This is a wonderful and fun plugin. My only issue is that colored glass and wool are reverted back to white when using Info on a gate. Other than that, it works perfectly as advertised. A perfect addition to any server!

    You can create as many gates as you want. There is no limit!

    Is there an upper limit to the number of gates allowed? Thanks

    This isn't a smile.

    This plugin is open source, everyone is invited to change it. So feel free to mod the hell out of it :D

    @tomco23: Go

    I am guessing it worked, because you added the soft dependency into your plugin.yml :P I am fairly new with modifying plugins, and your's was the first one I had to modify to make it work. Hopefully that is alright with you.

    @dotapurex1: Go

    I had a deeper look into it. It is actually not a Spigot problem but rather one of Bukkit.

    Good news that is should be fixed with the next Bukkit/Spigot release. (It is already fixed in the latest CraftBukkit development build.)

    @tomco23: Go

    Spigot Build #1319

    The gates are not being recognized. When having Build #1319 in, the gates are not opened and when i do /gate list, there are no gates. Reverting back to an older version of spigot works. However, will need an update of craft inc gates for further spigot builds.

    EDIT: The directory is creating a different name than before, that was why there were no gates! New directory name: Craft_Inc._Gates

    @dotapurex1: Go

    How? What is not working? Logs? Exceptions?

    Sorry I only do a litte testing with spigot. Main testing is always only done using craft-bukkit

    Gates are broken on the latest spigot build?
