Ports logo

Ports allows you to define regions which transport players around the world instantly, or on a schedule of your choosing.

Your ports can be trains, planes, ships, portals, whatever you like. You are limited only by your imagination!

Important notices

  • This plugin requires WorldEdit, and will not work without it.
  • All pre-existing port data from Ports v0.2 will be unusable with Ports v0.3 and above. If you have a large number of ports set up, you can use the sql2yaml Ruby script to convert the database to the new format. If you need help, please feel free to private message me on BukkitDev.
  • The current version should still work on 1.6. If you have any issues, please post a comment.

Quick links


  • Define activation zones using WorldEdit

  • Set up instant teleporters or ports that act on a schedule (every 5 minutes, every day, every week, whatever you wish)
  • Bukkit Permissions support
  • Full Multiworld support
  • Per-port permissions for fine-grained control

    It seems the author doesn't have time to update it, so I updated it to work on 1.9+ a few months ago. I gave the author credit on the page. Click here to see

    My dev had to remove the metrics-part since it spammed the console after the last update. Otherwise it's still working in 1.9.2 :) (and 1.9.4)

    I've used your Ports plugin in the past, and I really enjoyed its functionality. Is there any chance you could update it to 1.8?

    No, only players can use ports.

    @livengoodb: Go

    Possibly... Could you expand on this idea a little?

    Can animals travel from port A to port B?

    All right, we removed the gamerule for now, thanks for your response :p

    There is one more really small thing I'd like to ask.. did you ever think of providing an option to toggle the way the countdown is shown between in-game time and real time? Every other day I see players getting really confused, thinking they have to wait like 30 real minutes.. :D People tend to ignore signs on which I state how it actually works..

    @SharkROAR: Go

    Port timers are synched to the clock for the world they are in so that if an admin/moderator changes the time (for example to skip the night) the ports remain on schedule. Unfortunately this has the side-effect that if you freeze the day/night cycle, all the port timers for that world freeze as well.

    A potential workaround would be to remove the countdown timers by setting the schedule for each port to 0, so that the ports immediately depart as soon as a player steps into them. I know that's not really an ideal solution but it would allow you to keep using the doDaylightCycle gamerule alongside Ports.

    Hope this helps!

    There is a "slight" problem whith this plugin when you are using the doDaylightCycle gamerule.. Nothing will depart, since the countdown is just frozen :(

    Any chances you are going to fix this, or do I have to stay away from the gamerule when using this plugin?

    (We have a special world which just looks awful with a blue sky..)

    I'll try and put together a hotfix as soon as possible, but unfortunately I'm a bit preoccupied at the moment (moving house in 2 days, coursework deadlines, exams, etc.)
