  1. Heyo!

    I currently have a hub that is on a floating island and I would like to give donators the access to fly around but I don't want them going too far away from spawn. I don't care how high or low they go but I don't want them going too far out.

    I have 2 points in each corner of my flat region:

    // point 1: x: -293, z: -671
    // point 2: x: -117, z: -515

    I am having a hard time figuring out a good way to prevent players from leaving this area.

    Any ideas are much appreciated.

  2. Have you atleast tried anything at all?
  3. (I know it could be a stupid idea)
    Stick on the playermoveevent, check if the player is out of that cuboid area, and if yes, teleport him back subtracting -1 to the x/y axis.

    Sorry in case i said the dumbest thing in the world (i'm Learning too)
  4. That's not really efficient, I really don't like the whole PlayerMovement event, I never touch it as it really checks on stuff every single time a player moves...
  5. Yes I've tried a few things but nothing seems to be doing it correctly. I've just got home from a long day at school so my brain isn't working at 100%. I'm not asking for spoonfeed code, just for some potential solutions.

    Yes it would be ideal to avoid the player move event.
  6. I think that's the only way, btw, worldedit has this feature, you could see their sourcecode...

  7. What have you tried? Show us some code, please.
  8. Well the most efficcient way would be playermovevent, here:
    Code (Text):
    public void PlayerMove(PlayerMoveEvent event){
          //check if the player is outside the boundary
  9. Yeah, but he altready said that he won't stick with that, and i agree. It would be laggy
  10. Why not just use WorldEdit and WorldGuard for this?
  11. 3 checks in a player move event isn't gonna cause lag.
    • Agree Agree x 2
  13. @Envici , @Pr0totype2 was right, you can use the flags of the worldguard to drag them back inside the hub. Or use /worldborder instead ;)

  14. ;(
  15. He is looking for plugin or something without the help of coding :3
  16. I'm not looking for a plugin. I would like to implement this into my own hub plugin I am currently developing
  17. ???
  18. Listen to a PlayerMoveEvent
    If the player is outside the area, give him a knockback (Player#setVelocity)
  19. My problem is defining that area and knowing if a player has reached the edge of it
  20. if(x < minX || x > maxX)

    Do the same for y and z
