Hi there! First I want to say I love your map. This will be my first Prison Server I build. So i appreciate using your build as my start. It saves a lot of work. I'm hoping to get the Prison mechanism working and then Maybe I will build my own map.
I have the prison setup as a separate server world under BungeeCord (Spigot). This made permissions and other plugins settings much easier to handle because dealing with a Multiverse makes things needlessly complicated for the start. My Essentials( core,chat,spawn), PermsissionsEx, Worldedit/guard, and Vault.
I've looked at several of the 'Prison' plugins, like the one you suggested earlier in this thread, and see that mostly, they work all the same. My temporary problem is setting up the mines in your map.
It seems to me, that in all the documentation and tutorials for setting up mines using WorldEdit, I'm told to create a large Cuboid, set regions, flags, and fill it with blocks using a mine plugin. The prison mine reset plugin will refill and randomize the cuboid automatically (or manually).
My problem is this: I can't get past a game design issue. I guess I need to know how to ask the question, because Google is not helping.
On your map, there are shafts to the bedrock, but the space isn't 'tunneled out' leaving a space to be filled with worldedit.
If I select a region around me, hollow it out, define it as a mine, lets say ten or twenty blocks high. then the ladders from the shaft will lead into a pit, and the miner can't get out.
So, how did you make it so a miner can descend the ladders into a mine, dig, and then ascend to smelt or sell or whatever? How high do you make your region above bedrock?
Sorry if this seems so NEWBIE but I'm stuck.. Thanks in advance
Sorry... I didn't see how you had already designed the cuboid with bedrock (and glowstone). It was easy to use worldedit to define the cuboid again..
Which begs the question: Why don't you include the Essentials warp file and worldedit session files, so someone could have all the regions defined already?
Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting this up. It seems I will be doing a tutorial for setting up a prison server. There are some on the net, but they aren't very coherent. they assume way too much...
No idea if you are still in need of help, but! get minereselite it does all the work for you.You only need to set the points on how big you want the mines. The mines in the map are just for the show you can place any block you want players to mine. The warps aren't needed since the mines are right outside the spawn building. This plugins also auto reset the mines, and lets you place a % on the type of block you want in the rank.
