Launchpads 1.3

This is my first plugin! :)

What is this plugin?
This plugin allows the players on your server to be launched around using pistons or commands. This plugin has permissions aswell and tells the player the missing permission when he/she tries to do something.

This plugin is fully compatible with 1.8.x and 1.7.x, any version below that i cannot promise you that this will work. The only way to find out is to test it ;)


Its a pretty bad tutorial but at least it shows how everything works etc. Feel free to make your own and send it to me :)

Face a piston to a direction and power it with redstone, it will launch any players standing on top of the piston. make sure the piston can extend (there cant be too many blocks or tile entities in front). This works with sticky and non-sticky pistons.


/launch - Launch yourself up.
/launch <name> - Launch someone else up.
/launch config - Read and reload the config
/launch config <name> <value> - Change the config ingame (for help do /launch config)
/launch reset - Reset the config to default

Note: When changing the config using /launch config no reload is required, when you change the config in the files just type /launch config and it will update.


Color - Change the color of the messages the plugin sends.
Missing perm mess- Change the message a player sees when using /launch command
Launchpad Missing - Change the message when trying to use a launchpad without perm
Launch scream - What the player says in chat when using /launch (launch yourself)
Vertical Speed - Set the vertical speed when launched North, East, South or West.
Directional Speed - Set the speed you get launched at the direction the piston is pointing.
Explosion - Whether or not to make an explosion when launching (Will kill players in survival mode).
Explosion size - The size of the explosion (if explosion is enabled).
Damage terrain - Whether or not the explosion damages terrain (if explosion is enabled).
Item Drops - Whether or not the explosion causes item drops (*WARNING* Item drops may cause lag if explosion size is too big).
Debug - Enabled/Disables debugging messages

Default config:
Color: red
Missing perm message: You do not have the permission to use this command
Launchpad Missing perm message: You do not have the permission to launch
Launch scream: AAAAAAAAHHHH!!!
Vertical Speed: 1
Directional Speed: 4
Explosion: true
Explosion size: 3
Damage terrain: false
Item Drops: false
Debug: false


launchpads.launch - Allows the player to use launchpads.
launchpads.basic - Allows the player to use /launch

These all need launchpads.basic to allow users to use them!
launchpads.launch.self - Allows the player to do /launch to launch himself in the air.
launchpads.launch.others - Allows the player to do /launch <username> to launch someone in the air.
launchpads.config - Allows the player to see, reset and change the config.
launchpads.seedebug - Allows the player to see the debug messages (only when debug is enabled).
