    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)
    • Auto-Updating Configuration

    The showcase below was provided by @Ajneb97, he did a wonderful review highlighting some major and smaller features of SimplePortals. At the time of recording, SimplePortals v1.2.8 was being used. He covered some Version Specfic issues that may occur and other very specific tweaks you can accomplish in the config (Though some things were changed/fixed in newer versions). Many thanks to him!

    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:

    [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.

    Below is some extra information:
    • 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. When adding a command ensure NOT to use a slash and always end it with a colon followed by either PLAYER or CONSOLE (Adding a slash would result in the command running as if it uses 2 slashes instead of one). ':CHAT' can also be used as of v1.3.6 to send the command into chat for other plugins to use as fake commands!
    ⍟ 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.
    • 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.

      Lol... if you are on a version under 1.14.4 change the sound from ENTITY_GHAST_SHOOT to GHAST_CHARGE. I appreciate that you didn't contact me directly at all and used the review section to go against the terms of service!

    Version: 1.3.7
    Its great, BUT i want to connect the portal at world to nether hub. But I cant. Is there any way with other plugin or can I do that here?
    1. JKMODz
      Author's Response
      Use the discussion page, please. I don't answer questions or provide any form of assistance here in the review section. To help you out though, make sure that if that nether hub is a separate server the 'switch server' command must be used for the BungeeCoord transfer feature. Otherwise, simply set the target location of a portal to the opposite world for that portal to take them there. In terms of where the portal takes them via switch sever through BungeeCoord, this can not be controlled unless you have a plugin forcing spawn on join. This is only due to no communication between plugin instances cross-server. You could, however, use HyperDrive's cross-server capabilities to force locations cross-server.

    Great plugin, very helpful on my hub server, just curious if there's anyway to fill portals with particles and make them stay there? Thanks!

      Author's Response
      Thanks for the awesome review! There currently is not, it can be done using the plugin's API easily, but it is not a built-in function currently.

    Version: 1.3.5
    Excellent lightweight plugin. Exceeded all expectations and unlike other plugins for portals this one works all the time. Additionally the Dev is very responsive and helpful. I would strongly urge this plugin over others like multiverse portals or nether portals. For several reasons including those above. But of these the most important this plugin has been around for a long time and always running on the front line of plugins. We have used it on 3 servers and through 3 versions of Minecraft to date and love it. a 99 star plugin

    Plugin interessante, porém, não resolve meu problema, que é teleportar para onde o meu comando "/minerar" levar.

      I understood "problema". Issues, problems, or bugs that you encounter inside the plug-in are not to be reported here in the review section. If you would like assistance try contacting the developer next time before leaving review.

    Wonderful plugin that I utilize on my server to make it orderly with multiverse. Is there a chance where you can add random teleports to it too?
    1. JKMODz
      Author's Response
      Random teleportation might make it into the plug-in I will be adding more features in the future, For the best experience currently I always recommend hyperdrive to be run alongside simple portals for random teleportation portals as the features in both plugins were built together during development and testing!

    Version: 1.3.4
    So This is amazing and i love it, but only players with op permissions and use them. Do I need a different plug in just to give them permission? Is there a setting I can just change? plz help
    1. JKMODz
      Author's Response
      There is a configuration option to bypass permissions for users who don't want to use the default Bukkit or custom permissions system. Also, the permissions can be found above, under the permissions section above. Please contact me directly before posting about issues in the review section. I try to be friendly with everyone, but I'm not going to tolerate the review section for reports. The plugin is also open-source so please also utilize the GitHub issue reporter. As always, the best way to contact me is through discord at XZot1K#7490.
