    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".
    • For commands and some other features in the plugin, use {player} as the placeholder to obtain the player's name.
    • 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.
    • [Removed in 1.4.3] 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.
    ⍟ FAQ ⍟

    (Q) I'm getting an error/message involving the "simpleportals.cdbypass" permission node. How can I resolve this?

    (A) This is not actually an issue, the message is to notify the user who is either OP or has the permission that they have bypassed the cooldown for the feature. This message can be disabled by setting it to "" in the lang.yml.

    (Q) I'm getting an error in the console and I'm unable to teleport or use portals in general. How can I resolve this?

    (A) The plugin is native to the latest version of Minecraft; therefore, older versions may need tweaking within the configuration. Normally in this case setting the particle options in the config.yml will resolve this issue for you.

    Excelent plugin! Thank you!

    I think this plugin needs some documentation or Wiki. (maybe they're exist but I can't find it)

    Some question: is it possible to get playername for commands, like %playername% or something else? I want to use command from Console for players that enters in portal (to be more precise - tpr), but i don't want to give permissions for using that command.
    1. XZot1K
      Author's Response
      Hey there I appreciate the review, I pretty much cover everything under the "⍟ Plugin Usage ⍟". The commands need to be added without a slash and followed by a colon and the type player, chat, or console to indicate how the execution is done. In your case, use :CONSOLE at the end and {player} as the placeholder.
  2. sergservis
    Version: 1.4.7
    I ask you to check if the player was authorized AuthMe before the portal sends the player to the Bungee server
    1. XZot1K
      Author's Response
      Your bungee proxy server should have a plugin installed that handles authentication, if not already configured to do so by default. SimplePortals is simply a tool that uses Bungee's chat instances to move a player. It actually doesn't even touch Bungee directly.
  3. Remesko
    Version: 1.4.7
    How can I give players permission to port through the portal? Please with what command. Command syntax error. Check the command help. It writes when I want to give permission simple portals.portal permission. * Otherwise a great plugin.
    1. XZot1K
      Author's Response
      You must use a permissions plugin or the permissions.yml via spigot to provide a player with the "simpleportals.portal.<name>" or "simpleportals.portal.*" permissions. In the configuration, there is also a permission bypass option.
  4. ItsFoxyBoi
    Version: 1.4.6
    So I absolutely love this plugin, with bungee su;port too! :D 10/10 would recommend, just is there a command that you can do if you lost the location of a portal? Ty :)
    1. XZot1K
      Author's Response
      I appreciate the review! Generally, basic info such as the portal names is what can be seen in-game currently. If the name of the portal is known you can of course do a simple lookup in the portals.yml though!
  5. Chris_CY
    Version: 1.4.6
    Very good Plugin, but I have a problem: Players with no permission can't get through a portal but I already wrote true at bypass-portal-permissions, restarted the Server
    1. XZot1K
      Author's Response
      The bypass option was actually tested recently using this version, so I can confirm it is working within 1.4.6 and 1.4.5. Your issue could be as simple as a failure to save correctly. You can, however, provide each player with the needed permissions for each portal you create as an alternative or even the star permission!
  6. EleazarACL
    Version: 1.4.5
    When you update it to 1.16, I will update my server.
    SimplePortals is the best plugin for portals that exists, it's essential.
    1. XZot1K
      Author's Response
      The plugin can technically work with 1.16 if all sounds and particle are disabled, as mention in a previous review I just made, but 1.16 support is on the way for all my plugins.
  7. Raptir
    Version: 1.4.5
    I've been using this plugin since my first private server in 2018, and I'm sad that it's not working with 1.16.1, i hope it gets fixed soon.
    1. XZot1K
      Author's Response
      The plugin can technically work with 1.16 if all sounds and particle are disabled. Q.16 support will be added soon enough.

    Version: 1.4.5
    I would rate it 5 stars but how do i add a command like this "warp mobarena" thanks
    1. XZot1K
      Author's Response
      I’d recommend contacting support. To add a command set the portal into command only and then simply add the command using the addcmd command followed by a colon and the operator such as PLAYER or CONSOLE. You can also use the {player} placeholder for the player name!
  9. PatateVerte
    Version: 1.4.5
    I would rate it 5 stars but I cant find the command that allow my friends to access the portals, without giving them admin
    1. XZot1K
      Author's Response
      Hey there thank you for the review! You will need to give them permission via permissions plugin or use the permissions bypass option in the configuration.

    Como se conecta con bungeecord?, no puedo lograrlo y ya puse /portal ss survival survival y nada
    1. XZot1K
      Author's Response
      Thanks for the review! Make sure your bungee cord proxy is directly connected to both servers. Once done, the switch server feature acts as a middle man and will send bungee a message to transfer the player. The plugin actually has no say in how or when the player is teleported; therefore, it can be confirmed that if it is not working on your end the proxy was not configured properly! If that is the case, please refer to the spigot bungee cord documentation to ensure something wasn't missed!
