    What is Simple Portals?

    Simple Portals is the simplest, yet effective way to create region based portals. The plugin was heavily tested on many large live servers and put under stress to ensure performance was optimal. Simple Portals also allows the teleporting of players across your bungee cord server without even using the bungee cord API!

    ⍟ Features ⍟
    • Packet particle visuals for selections, region display, and other immersive effects.
    • Object-oriented portals making the API very easy to manipulate and modify specific portals.
    • No dependencies (Everything is developed from scratch within the plugin)
    • Per-portal permissions
    • Command Sympathy (Many commands have abbreviations for easier use)
    • Fluids and other movable materials are frozen in the portal regions.
    • Optimized Code (As stated above the plugin was thoroughly tested on multiple servers and developed with plenty of care)
    • Bungee Coord server switching (This feature uses the plugin channel, therefore, it communicates with the bridge server)
    • Lightweight Update checker (Checks for newer versions once every time on enable)
    • Powerful Developer API (Enough methods and events to take full control)
    • Simple To Manipulate (All commands and features are made to be used with ease)

    Below is a very brief look at the region visual display during the portal create process:

    ⍟ Plugin Usage ⍟

    SimplePortals is made to be, well... simple! Therefore the portal creation process is quite straightforward. Please find instruction below:
    Code (Text):
    [NOTE] - The "Selection Mode" command is a toggle, meaning when ran once it will enable and twice it will disable.

    (Step 1)  -  In order to create a portal, you must first enter "selection mode" by using the command "/portals selectionmode" or "/portals sm".

    (Step 2)  -  The next step is to "left-click" the lowest block at the end of a cuboid or rectangular region and then "right-click" the highest block in the opposite corner of the region. This will set your current selection for any portals you wish to create soon.

    (Step 3)  -  To finish off the portal creation process you must use the command "/portals create <portal name>" to create the portal using your WorldEdit-Like selection.

    (Step 4)  -  From this point, you have a created portal. Now by default the destination, the portal will teleport the user to will always be set to the lowest-block or Point-1. To change the portal's destination, use the command "/portals setlocation" or "/portals sl" at the location you wish your portal to take you to.

    ⍟ Extras ⍟

    * You can fill a portal's region with a specific material by using the "/portals fill <portal name>" command (Don't worry all liquid-based materials will not flow out of the region).

    * You can relocate the portal's region by using the "/portals relocate <portal name>" command after making another selection in "selection mode".

    * To make a portal teleport the player to another server via Bungee simply set the server name using the command "/portals switchserver <portal name> <server>". You can set this value to "none" to disable the feature for a portal.

    * As for adding commands to be ran by the portal when entered you can add them using the "/portals addcommand <portal name> <command>" command. To remove the commands you may use the "/portals clearcommands <portal name>" command.

    ⍟ Developer API ⍟

    Currently, everything in the API can be found in the API package inside the plugin which can be found on the GitHub page. However, below you can find the API class names and their purpose.
    Code (Text):
    * Manager (Class) - this stores all general methods, calculations, and storage lists or maps.

    * PointType (Enum) - this is used inside the listener for the region selection.

    * Portal (Class Object) - this is an entire object that stores all information about a single portal.

    * Region (Class Object) - this is an entire object that stores all information about a region (Coordinates and Locations).

    *  SerializableLocation (Class Object) - this is used to serialize a location and prevent future changes to the same location.

    * TaskHolder (Class Object) - this is used to store the visual effect tasks for each player. This class also manages them to make sure not too many are shown at once.

    * PortalActionEvent (Event Object) - this event is called when a player is teleported by a portal.

    * PortalEnterEvent (Event Object) - this event is called when a player enters a portal's region.

      I appreciate the review! The plugin is being adjusted slowly to become more user-friendly, but since the plugin doesn't require dependencies it had to have its own creative process which is a lot like worldedit. Suggestions are always welcome!

    Thank you for this, it's simple and effective and speedy. My users are happy because you keep your users happy :-)

    I am also getting the bug with same-world portal destinations resetting to one of the points(-2y) in the portal region itself on reload. worked around this by making the portal "command only" mode and using warp from EssentialsX.

      I appreciate the awesome review! And this issue should have been fixed within 1.1.7; however, other operations are taking place to confirm the fix.
