DoorCloser-Butler 1.1

Close doors behind players

    Tested Minecraft Versions:
    • 1.16
    • 1.17
    Source Code:
    Close doors automatically after a player has opened them.
    Also works for trapdoors and gates.
    The number of seconds the door remains open is configurable.
    You can limit the scope to specific mateials.
    It also synchronizes double doors (a pair of left-wing and right-wing doors).
    If for some reason the open is cancelled (e.g. the player has no permission to interact with the door), the door stays untouched.

    Usage Example
    You have a role-play-world where you want to deliver all players the same experience. If a player comes to a new place, the door there is normally closed. But if he opens it the next player finds an open door. This is unrealistic for the new player (destroying the role-play). So we need a mechanism to roll back the door-opening before the next player comes. This is done by the automatic DoorCloser.

    For our role-play-server we have searched for a DoorCloser plugin and found
    but this plugin seems no longer to be maintainanced (last supported mimecraft version is 1.13.2).
    The original author (Psychlist1972) has released the sourcecode of his plugin on Github using an Apache 2.0 license.
    Please see for reference.
    So we decided to write our own plugin doing the same thing and reused some of his code for that.
    (The source-code for our plugin is also available on Githhub and uses the same Apache 2.0 license).

      Both options are already included in the config. Are they not working as expected?
