This plugin can allow those with permission to create gates. These gates will transport/teleport anyone who enters that gate to the designated location. This is a very easy to use, easy to maintain transportation plugin! As a bonus, the gates can look any way you like!

To get started, try the ingame command: /gate


/gate help,h,? [page] - Display a help page

/gate create,new [id] - Create a gate

/gate delete,del,remove [id] - Delete a gate

/gate setfrom [id] - Set “from” to your location.

/gate setto [id] - Set “to” to your location.

/gate open [id] - Open that gate after creation.

/gate close [id] - Close that gate at any time.

/gate list,ls - Display a list of the gates



Only one: ancientgates.admin - this will allow anyone with that permission full access to create, delete, open or close gates.

Who can create a gate?

Those with the permission node or operators.

How do I create a gate?

Using the command /gate create [id] will create a gate with the name of "[id]". You then stand wherever you choose to make the gate (making a frame out of seemingly anything (besides, say, lava or water) and do a /gate setfrom [id]. This will set the "from" position (where players must walk into) where you stand. You then go to where you want to have players teleport to, and type: /gate setto [id] and it set that position to where you stand. Once this is all set up, you now open the gate with /gate open [id]. This should open the portal and allow users to enter them at any time.

Who can destroy a gate?

Anyone if you do not use a third-party protection plugin like Towny, Factions, Worldguard, etc.

Is there economy/Vault integration? Features for user to dial other gates etc?

Not at this time.


To Do List:

- Fork Vault in, allowing costs per gate creation, teleport, etc.

- Create basic gate destruction protection, removing the need for Worldguard/Factions/Towny/etc.
