.:: Ion Cannon ::.

Destroying the world has become so simple . . .

Stable Build : [1.7.2] IonCannon 3.1


Ion Cannon is one of my first plugins. It spawns a tower of some TNT blocks with a command. One command and One item spawnable can launch Ion Cannon to destroy any area. Permission and some values are configurable in config file.


  • Permission Support :D
  • Destroy any area with a command
  • Config File: Default size, onlyOp, maxsize, etc
  • Remote item to launch more simply
  • BeaconBeam visual effect
  • Now support plugins blocked explosions (like WorldGuard)


All commands (exept /ionhelp) need tp process in control Room (configuraable)

/ion | Send list of all IonCannon commands

/ion remote> | Create remote command for launch Laser

/ion setsize <size> | Set laser Size High size can crash server, use with precaution !

/ionlock <X> <Z> | Launch Ion at <X> <Z>


ion.cmd.* | allow acces to all permission contains : ion.cmd.<any>

ion.cmd.ion | Allow acces to help command : /ion

ion.cmd.setsize | Allow acces to command : /ion setsize <size>

ion.cmd.ionlock | Allow acces to command : /ionlock <x> <z>

ion.cmd.remote | Allow acces to command : /ion remote

ion.use.remote | Allow player with permission to use remote item

►Configuration File:

OpOnly: false
//Allow only op (true) to use commands, or not (false)

WgMode: false;
//Set to true if you want server destroy blocs withous using explosion (in Laser). Use this if you use plugins who prevent explosions

LaserMateriaIdl: 57
//Change if you want to the Id of border of the lazer (DiamondBlock by default).

DefaultSize: 4
// Set default laser size (can be changed in-game with /ion setsize)

MaxSize: 20
//Set max Laser size for (/ion setsize) command.

WaitingTime: 20
//Set the Waiting time before the launch of laser.

LaserMaterial: DIAMOND_BLOCK<</color>>  //This no longer work, remplaced by LaserMaterialId

►Remote command: Remote command can be only generated with command .

For generate use this : /ion remote
For use, juste right click to a block.
The remote is FIREWORK with custom name.

    This is not what i wait((( My WorldGuard stops all explosion spread and i see just big diamond vertical tower. Maybe you rebuild or add another mode? If i launch ion cannon, plugin create diamond tower and delete all blocks inside like if burns through and remove diamond block after deleting blocks. In result i must see big hole =)

    @Roxasthehunter: Go

    It's logic Server will generate in few second many blocs : pi*r²*h

    3.14*45²*128 = 814300 blocs of TNT ... in 1sec

    Great!! I love this concept i just think the tnt-beam is predictable. I think you could REALLY wow people by doing the laser beacon idea!!!!!!! :D
