    This is an updated version of AncientGates from Bukkit. It is updated to work from Spigot 1.7 up to Spigot 1.15!
    It might even work on versions below 1.7 but that is currently untested, feel free to test and share the results.

    The documentation below is literally a copy paste from the original page as most features remain the same. Feel free to point out anything outdated/wrong you see in the wikis.

    This plugin can allow those with permission, to create gates. These gates will teleport any player, entity (incl. passenger) or vehicle (incl. passenger) that enters that gate to the designated location and/or execute a command. This is a very easy to use, easy to maintain transportation plugin! As a bonus, the gates can look any way you like (vertical or horizontal), with a selection of portal materials. There are also bungee gates to teleport between servers.
    To get started, try the in game command: /gate

      This is a Spigot plugin that can communicate with Bungee, not a Bungee plugin, please read the resource category.

    Very Good Plugin, have used this for years! To improve the plugin I suggest adding an ability for the gates to run a command chosen by the player! This can be used for minigames like SkyWars!

    Really good plugin! I love the sugar cane portals XD Though there are some problems with it using 1.11.2 (1.11 too, I think...)

    This goes for users that are using this plugin:
    (FYI, "registered" means you listed your servers with AncientGates, it's just a word I made up)

    1. If you have a network using BungeeCord, NEVER EVER set the SocketComms to true because the console will complain and say "Is it up to date?". The plugin works perfectly fine, just not the SocketComms part. Once you set it to true in-game, the plugin will work for a couple minutes, then it will say "An internal error has occurred (something like that)" when you type /gate. I don't think you can cover up your mistakes in-game. So you have to go back to your folder "AncientGates" and set the Comms to false, or just completely delete config.yml if you are lazy. Deleting it doesn't effect your servers.yml (your "registered" servers).

    2. If you close a "sugar cane" portal, make sure you manually break the sugar cane and pick up the droppings (or lagg clear if you have ClearLag). It's kinda weird having half a bush of sugar cane hanging in mid-air. XD

    3. If you have a network and you want to "register" your servers, might as well do it in the config instead of in-game. It's a lot quicker and easier. Trust me. (Just copy and paste)

    4. If you have a network and you want to connect from server to server, make sure you have the plugin on both server (obviously).

    5. For example, if you have a room 3x3x3, and you placed 3 blocks horizontally and use the "portal frame" (1x3x2) to make a portal, the plugin will complain... It will take on its rage by creating awkwardly shaped portal blocks (which is not what you want...)

    Anyways, I think that's it. A few bugs with the plugin on 1.11.2, but otherwise, the plugin is awesome! I recommend using it for your network because it's really easy to config.
