Do you need to understand how to program to use this plugin? NO!
You can create very nice effects without needing to understand logic flow or scripting. Just use the basic in game commands and create Walk, Click or Event Triggers with only one or two lines. To make a walk trigger that teleports a player that walks over a certain block to a location you define, simply type this one line:
You will me asked to click a location to teleport to and then you will be asked to click the block to set the trigger on. It can be as simple as that.
More Basic Examples:
/vtwalk @PLAYER Hello <playername> you just walked over a trigger!
Then click the block with the wand(bone) to set the walk trigger.
The above script line would tell only the triggering player the following:
Hello LexLaiden you just walked over a trigger!
You can add more script lines to the same trigger just type the following:
/vtwalk @ENTITY SKELETON 2
You will be asked to click a block to set the spawn location and then to click a block to set the trigger or add to an existing one.
The above script line will spawn two skeletons at the location you selected.
FYI - the default wand is the bone. You can change this in the config.yml
But if you do understand logic flow and some very basic script commands you can create Amazing things!
