MagicCobblestoneGenerator#

MagicCobblestoneGenerator turns the plain and boring cobblestone generators to an awesome and reliable source of configurable blocks!

Created and maintained by BONNe.

Installation#

  1. Place the addon jar in the addons folder of the BentoBox plugin
  2. Restart the server
  3. Run the /[admincmd] generator command to configure the addon

Configuration#

By default, the addon tries to import all data from template file, to simplify first setup. A lot of addon settings are exposed in Admin GUI, however, some of them are not. The latest config options, and their detailed explanations can be found here.

Template file are mostly for users who do not like to use ingame editing GUI. However, template file is not automatically imported on each change. It requires importing via command or Admin GUI.

Commands#

Tip

[player_command] and [admin_command] are commands that differ depending on the gamemode you are running. The Gamemodes' config.yml file contains options that allows you to modify these values. As an example, on BSkyBlock, the default [player_command] is island, and the default [admin_command] is bsbadmin. Be aware, that this addon allows changing player commands aliases in addon config.yml file.

  • /[player_command] generator: Access to generator Selection GUI.
  • /[player_command] generator view <generator>: Access to specific generator detailed view.
  • /[player_command] generator activate <generator> [false]: Allows to activate (or deactivate) specific generator.
  • /[player_command] generator buy <generator>: Allows to buy specific generator.
  • /[admin_command] generator: Access to addon Admin GUI
  • /[admin_command] generator import: Imports default template file - /plugins/BentoBox/addons/MagicCobblestoneGenerator/generatorTemplate.yml.
  • /[admin_command] generator database import <file>: Ability to import database exported .
  • /[admin_command] generator database export <file>: Ability to export database into saved in /plugins/BentoBox/addons/MagicCobblestoneGenerator/ folder.
  • /[admin_command] generator why <player>: A debugging command that allows finding issues with generators for each player.

Permissions#

Tip

[gamemode] is a prefix that differs depending on the gamemode you are running. The prefix is the lowercased name of the gamemode, i.e. if you are using BSkyBlock, the prefix is bskyblock. Similarly, if you are using AcidIsland, the prefix is acidisland.

  • [gamemode].stone-generator - Let the player use the '/[player_command] generator' command and its subcommands.
  • [gamemode].stone-generator.active-generators.3 - Sets the maximum number of active generators the island owner can have. 3 can be replaced with any positive integer. This is just an example.
  • [gamemode].stone-generator.max-range.30 - Sets the maximum distance from the generator so it continues to work. 30 can be replaced with any positive integer. This is just an example.
  • [gamemode].stone-generator.bundle.[bundle_id] - Specifies which bundle will be used for user owned island.
  • [gamemode].admin.stone-generator - Let the player use the '/[admin_command] generator' command and its subcommands.
  • [gamemode].admin.stone-generator.why - Let the player use a debug command '/[admin_command] why generator '.
  • [gamemode].admin.stone-generator.database - Let the player use the '/[admin_command] generator database' command and its subcommands.
Something is missing?

You can find the comprehensive list of permissions in the addon.yml file of this addon.
If something is indeed missing from the list below, please let us know!

Placeholders#

Tip

[gamemode] is a prefix that differs depending on the gamemode you are running.

The prefix is the lowercased name of the gamemode, i.e. if you are using BSkyBlock, the prefix is bskyblock.

Properly translated placeholders for each gamemode can be found:

Please read the main Placeholders page.

Placeholder Description MagicCobblestoneGenerator version

FAQ#

Can you add a feature X?

Please add it to the list here.

How can I add a new generator tier?

Currently, addon supports 3 ways how to add a new generator:

  • By using ingame GUI that is available via /[admin] generator command.
  • By adding generator to a template file.
  • By adding generator to the exported database file.
I added generator to the template/database file, but it does not shows up in game.

For easier configuration with multiple gamemodes, generators are stored in the internal database. After editing template or database file, you need to import them into that memory. You can do it via Admin GUI by clicking on Import Template or Import Database buttons.

template database

I have a generator that shows up in Admin GUI, but players do not see it.

Most likely it is because of "deployment" status. To avoid with issues when players starts to activate generators while an admin is adding them, generators are undeployed and noone can use them. You can activate them by editing generator via Admin GUI and clicking on lever in Edit Generator GUI. deployed

What is treasures?

Treasures are things that are dropped uppon block generation. It allows to give an extra customization for each generator.

What is bundles?

Bundles is a feature that allows customizing experience for each island even more. If bundle is assigned to an island, then players on that island will be able to use only generators from that bundle.

Can I disable showing required permissions in generator description?

Yes, addon provides a lot of customization options for displaying each generator. It is located in locales file:

      # Generator lore message generator. All elements in generator lore is generated
      # based on section below.
      generator:
        # Main lore element content. If you do not want to display treasures at all,
        # just remove them from [treasures] section.
        # [description] comes from each generator tier.
