    This is an updated version of AncientGates from Bukkit. It is updated to work with the newer Spigot/Paper versions!
    Although there are some issues with bungeecord support, regular gates should be pretty functional.

    You can create vertical, horizontal, and even diagonal gates/portals!
    All the gates can teleport entities such as items or animals. It's an awesome plugin that I've been using for several years and that's why I try to keep it updated.

    If you can code, contributions are very welcome on Github

    Bungeecord support is pretty much broken, expect it not to work at all

    The documentation below is copied 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 Feel free to point out anything outdated/wrong you see in the wikis.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

    I completely followed the instructions, delivered 3 servers with ports 18001, 18002, 18003 and ip On each server, I executed similar commands [gate setconf useSocketComms true], [gate setconf socketCommsPort 18001], [gate setconf socketCommsPass 6WYyeUYrabuNDdcc]. Passwords and ports are different for each server. But the [addserver, remserver, serverlist, serverls] commands do not work. =(
    I'll wait for your corrections. Good luck. =)

    "/gate setbungeetype skyblock SERVER" but it only says "You can only use this command on a BungeeCord gate". How can I set a bungeecord gate?

    This is a great plugin. I hope that "bungeeTeleportDefault" can also support "spawn" parameters in addition to "location" and "server" to transmit to the player's respawn point (such as world spawn point, bed, respawn anchor, etc.) , So that I can make each world as a separate server, and then use this plugin to connect "world" and "world_the_end"

    10/10 best portal plugin ever, been using it since 2014, still going strong and I'm happy to see that it's being maintained well.

    A tiny update to material to add the end gateway block would be cool too.

    Kudos for keeping this updated for this long. I appreciate having a functioning plugin for this long. I saw that the rating was only 3 stars for this version and am very grateful for the dev keeping this plugin up for so long. Thank you.

      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!
