    [​IMG]Nether View

    Nether View makes it possible to see the nether through nether portals. Before actually travelling to the under world you will already be able to have a brief look at what is expecting you on the other side of the portal:

    Portals in any (vanilla) size can show their destinations, as long as their linked portal has the same size and both frames are completely built out of obsidian – also the four corners:


    New in V3.0
    New multiverse-like portals that have the viewing effect!​

    Playing with Optifine can make the portal animations much smoother, so I can only recommend using it!


    Portal animations only work in 1st person view. The 3rd person mode (when pressing F5) is client side and cannot be detected with plugins.​


    Drop the jar in your plugins folder and reload your server. If you want NetherView to work only in certain worlds - or your worlds have custom names - open the config file and edit the world list (see below) and then run /netherview reload.

    Now every time you create a new portal step into it once so the plugin can load the information about the destination of the portal. When stepping out of the portal again the view will be loaded.

    If you run into problems or something that seems to be a bug try to out /netherview debugmessages true.

    This will enable debug messages ingame that may help you understand why the plugin is not doing what you expected. They can also be useful for me to identify and fix a bug.


    Code (YAML):
    #the range around a portal up to which you see a portal animation
    : 16
    #the distance in blocks up to which the world inside a portal will be visible
    : 4
    #limit for how tall or wide animated portals can become (bigger portals may cause more lag)
    : 5
    #hides entities from your world behind your portal
    : true
    #makes entities from the other world visible in your portals (only works if above is also set to true)
    : true
    #ticks between entity movevent packets sent to the player (default: 3, really smooth movements: 1)
    : 3

    #enables warning messages for players when two portals could not be linked
    : true
    #enables debug messages for the console that give more detailed information about events and errors
    : false

    #settings related to projections of nether portals

        #spigot flips the player around when using a nether portal. set this to false if you use another fork of spigot
    : true
        #hide the purple portal layer when looking at a portal view
    : true
        #cancel the portal teleport when two portals are being linked for the first time (for players in survival mode)
    : true
        #cancel the portal teleport when two portals are being linked for the first time (for players in survival mode)
    : true
        #worlds where portal viewing is enabled. enter "*" (with the quotes) if you want to enable it in all worlds
           - world
            - world_nether
        #worlds where portal viewing is disabled. this list has a higher priority than whitelisted-worlds
           - null

       #worlds where custom portals can be created and used. enter "*" (with the quotes) if you want to enable it in all worlds
           - "*"
        #worlds where custom portals are disabled. this list has a higher priority than whitelisted-worlds
           - null

    #the different blocks that create the border of a portal view for each world type
    : white_terracotta
    : red_concrete
    : black_concrete
    Here is a short example on how to you could get some infos from Nether View with your plugin using the compiled jar as library:
    Code (Java):
    import me.gorgeousone.netherview.NetherViewPlugin;
    import me.gorgeousone.netherview.portal.Portal;

    NetherViewPlugin netherView = (NetherViewPlugin) Bukkit.getPluginManager().getPlugin("NetherView");

    Portal closestPortal = netherView.getPortalHandler().getClosestPortal(player.getLocation(), true);
    Set<Portal> overWorldPortals = netherView.getPortalHandler().getPortals(overworld);

    boolean canSeePortals = netherView.getViewHandler().hasPortalViewEnabled(player);
    boolean isViewingAPortal = netherView.getViewHandler().hasViewSession(player);
    Portal viewedPortal = netherView.getViewHandler().getViewSession(player).getViewedPortal();


    nv reload – reloads the config data
    nv listportals <world> – prints a list with all portals from one world into chat
    nv portalinfo – gives you more detailed information about then closest portal to you
    nv debugmessages <true/false> – enables or disables debug messages in the console that give more info about events and errors
    nv warningmessages <true/false> – enables or disables warning messages for players when two portals could not be linked
    nv flipportal – flips the two viewable sides of the nether portal you are looking at
    toggleportalview – toggles portal viewing on and off for you individually

    nv wand – gives you a portal wand: left click to set the first custom portal corner, right click to set the second one
    nv createportal <portal name> – creates a custom portal from your selection with a portal wand
    nv link <from portal> <to portal> – links a custom portal to another custom portal so it will teleport and project to there
    nv unlink <portal> – removes the link from this portal to another portal
    nv deleteportal – removes a custom portal completely


    netherview.viewportals – permission to look at other worlds through portals and use the /toggleportalview command
    netherview.linkportals – permission to link portals so they create projections
    netherview.config – permission for config related commands such as the reload command or toggeling messages – permission for the commands to get information about portals
    netherview.flipportal – permission for the flip command


    ProtocolLib - If you are running 1.16, use the latest dev build

    Next Goals

    • adding more animations to the entity viewing feature
    • adding custom portals that can be viewed

    Version: 1.3.0
    Nice plugin, not for people with potato PC's though. If your tps is struggeling because of a plugin then that means you had a shitty server to begin with, I'm running 40+ plugins and have no tps problems with nether view.

      When I play with optifine I find it running much smoother on my client actually.
      The plugin became much faster, though, so I don't blame anybody who complained in other reviews :D

    Clever plugin but made my tps go from 19.99 to 15.04, recommenced only if you have under 20 plugins.
