How to detect if a player has activated a certain pressure plate in a minigame?

  1. Hi,

    This is a difficult one to ask and explain what I am after, (But I'll try)

    My question is, how can I detect if a player has hit a pressure plate or possibly, create a new type of pressure plate or block that will count up points (or coins).

    Essentially my minigame is Sonic Dash which I created ages ago and posted on the Minecraft Forum, I would now like to make a plugin so you can play together on my server. The problem is, how can I get it so that when a player touches a golden pressure plate, it adds a coin, if they run into a grey wool block, they loose there coins (or they die if they have 0 coins), etc. It's difficult to explain but I am very much beginner but there isn't any good tutorials out there that explains this kind of stuff.

    Edit: I don't know how to add events and make them get checked when a command is run, for example, the only command I have at the minute is /sdtest which teleports you to test the map. When the player runs a command, I want to be checking for something and then when they finish it stops checking

  2. Check for the PlayerInteractEvent and the action type is Action.PHYSICAL for pressure plates
  3. Thanks, but I didn't make this clear (So I apologise), How do I add this event so that it is being checked all the time, I don't know how I make this an event that is checked when they run a specific command or something. At the minute, the only main command I have is /sdtest which essentially teleports you, plays the music and let's you test the map.

    "How do I add this event so that it is being checked all the time"

    Events are run when the trigger happens.
    In this case when a player touches a pressure plate.

    This event is being checked everytime it needs to be checked.

    Here is an example of checking this event

  5. He is right
  6. Use the cords of the pressure plate, I think this will work

    nvm I don't think you can do that.

  7. You can, but it is inefficient
