Building a gate:
There are currently three default gate configurations. They all use the same structure as a standard nether portal. One gate is using obsidian blocks, one is using end bricks and the last uses sea lanterns. Only the sea lantern one can be used underwater. You must put a sign on one of the blocks in the middle of the layout to activate the portal (see next section). See the Custom Gate Layout section to learn how to add custom gates.
OO O O - These are Obsidian blocks, End bricks or Sea Lanterns. You need 10. O O - Place a sign on either of these two middle blocks. O O OO
- Line 1: Gate Name (Max 13 characters)
- Line 2: Destination Name [Optional] (Max 13 characters, used for fixed-gates only)
- Line 3: Network name [Optional] (Max 13 characters)
Line 4: Options [Optional] :
- 'A' for always-on fixed gate
- 'H' for hidden networked gate
- 'P' for a private gate
- 'F' for a free gate
- 'B' is for a backwards facing gate (You will exit the back)
- 'S' is for showing an always-on gate in the network list
- 'N' is for hiding the network name
- 'R' is for random gates. These follow standard permissions of gates, but have a random exit location every time a player enters. (Implicitly always on)
- 'U' is for a gate connecting to another through bungee (Implicitly always on)
- 'I' is for a silent gate, which does not output anything to the chat while teleporting. Increases immersion
- 'E' is for a gate without a sign. Only for fixed stargates
The options are the single letter, not the word. So to make a private hidden gate, your 4th line would be 'PH'. The &[0-9a-f] color codes are not counted in the character limit, thus allowing a 13-character name with an additional 2 characters used for the color code.
- Gates are all part of a network, by default this is "central".
- You can specify (and create) your own network on the third line of the sign when making a new gate.
- Gates on one network will not see gates on the second network, and vice versa.
- Gates on different worlds, but in the same network, will see each other.
- If the gate is a bungee gate, the network name should be the name of the server as displayed when typing /servers
- Fixed gates go to only one set destination.
- Fixed gates can be linked to other fixed gates, or normal gates. A normal gate cannot open a portal to a fixed gate, however.
- To create a fixed gate, specify a destination on the second line of the stargate sign.
- Set the 4th line of the stargate sign to "A" to enable an always-open fixed gate.
- A bungee gate is always automatically a fixed gate
- Hidden gates are like normal gates, but only show on the destination list of other gates under certain conditions.
- A hidden gate is only visible to the creator of the gate, or somebody with the stargate.hidden permission.
- Set the 4th line of the stargate sign to 'H' to make it a hidden gate.
