The CMI portals feature allows you to create portals that execute commands when a player walks through them.
Portals support specialized commands.
A portal doesn’t require a teleport-endpoint. You can depend on commands. When you create a new portal it expects you to select an area first. A portal can display a one of a variety of particles, but showing particles is not required. There is BungeeCord support, you can set the teleport-endpoint on a remote server within the same network.
Creating a new Portal
To create a portal, you will need a Wooden Shovel (the default CMI selection tool), as well as the
cmi.select permission nodes.
1. Select the area where you want the portal to be. The selected area will be marked with particles.
2. Once the area has been selected, we can create a new portal using
/cmi portals new [portalName].
Example: To create a portal named Test1, the command would be
/cmi portals new Test1.
3. Optionally, you can set the portal’s destination point. The chat will have a clickable message.
/cmi portals edit Test1to edit the portal’s settings through a GUI. From where you can:
- Enable/disable the portal.
- Enable/disable showing particles.
- Change the particle type.
- Change the amount of particles.
- Change the percentage of sides shrunk particles.
- Change the range, in blocks, that a player must be within for the particles to activate.
- Show the particles to players without the
- Change the particle’s colors (only for red dust particles).
- Change the particle size (only for red dust particles).
- Perform the portal’s commands without a valid teleport location.
- Edit the portal’s commands.
- Change whether players should require the
cmi.command.portal.[portalname]permission node to use the portal.
- Inform players if they don’t have the
- Prevent players without the
cmi.command.portal.[portalname]permission node from using the portal.
- Set the portal’s safe outside location.
- Set the portal’s teleport location.
- Teleport to the portal’s target location.
- Teleport to the portal’s location.
- Redefine the portal’s area from your current selection.
- Remove the portal.
5. Now, let’s see how to add commands. Click on the Enchanted Book item in the GUI.
6. Click on the green
[+]-sign to add a new command and type it into the chat. (Specialized commands are supported.)
Don’t start the command with
/ (forward slash).
[playerName] variable can be used to include the name of the player who interacted with the portal.
7. As an example, the following command has been added:
8. You are now done. You have a working portal that will give a player Blindness effect and removes their flight when they go through it.
You can also remove the Blindness effect by clicking on the red
9. Here’s how a portal is saved in the
Test1: Loc: 358.0:64.0:77.0:358.0:67.0:81.0 enabled: true effect: reddust color: 8224125 showParticles: true Tp: world;-979.5;82.0;544.5;90.3;2.4 kickBack: true particlesByPermission: false requiresPerm: false informOnMissingPerm: false particleAmount: 20 particleHide: 0 activationRange: 16 commandsWithoutTp: true commands: - cmi effect [playerName] blindness 2 1 -s - cmi fly [playerName] false
In the CMI config.yml file you can configure the commands assigned to all portals, the default is
cmi effect [playerName] blindness 2 1 -s
If you want to remove it, just replace it with
Portals: # Defines in milliseconds how often to check if player entered portal or not # Bigger numbers can help slightly lower server load but small portals, 1 block depth without back wall can be passed through without teleportations if player moves fast enought CheckInterval: 300 # Defines in milliseconds how often to check if player entered portal range for particles to apear CheckParticleInterval: 500 Defaults: # Should we perform commands without set destination location by default # This only effects newly created portal areas # When set to true at moment you create portal you can enter it and commands defined belove will be performed without teleporting you anywhere # This can be change for each portal independently with ingame portal editor PerformCommands: true # Commands to be performed on teleport event Commands: - cmi effect [playerName] blindness 2 1 -s
- Portals will work over a BungeeCord network and you can teleport players across your servers. To set one up, create a portal, open the GUI, and click on the location button. You should then get a message in the chat. Go to the desired server, which should also have CMI installed, and click on the message. You are done. The portal will now teleport players to the specified server when they walk through it. Don’t forget to put the CMI-Bungee jar on the BungeeCord proxy server.
- Portal commands will work across your BungeeCord network and are performed after the player has been teleported.
- You can play a sound when a player enters the portal by adding the following to the portal’s commands section:
Note: Sound names can be different based on your Minecraft version.
- You can see all portals, in order of proximity, typing
- You can add as many commands to a portal as you want, and specialized commands can also be used.
- Portals can be forcibly updated using
/cmi portals forceupdate [portalName].
- Portals can be enabled or disabled using
/cmi portals enabled [portalName] [true/false].
