    Chest Locking Changes

    We are changing how chest locking works to reduce the amount of signs that need to be placed inside players towns. Too many signs create client lag for lots of players and towns with large chest vaults always suffer from it. So we are switching to a command based chest locking plugin that will keep your chests locked without the use of signs. You will still be able to do all the things you used to, like adding friends to the chests and all that.

    Old Chest Locks:
    • Your old sign based chest locks will still work!
      • While it is a good idea to convert over to the new command based you do not have to do anything to continue to have your chests protected. Any new chests tho you will need to use the command based locking.
    How it works:
    • Your chests will automatically be locked when you place them.
    • You can add other players to your chests via commands.
    • You can unprivate your chests via commands.
    • You can create private chests that unlock via password instead of adding players individually.
    Commands:
    • /cprivate - locks an unlocked chest.
    • /cpassword YourPasswordHere - Creates a password locked chest.
    • /cmodify - Add players to your protected chests
      • Example: /cmodify ntall1 skilleddrew mijume - this will add all 3 of the players in one command.
    • /cremove - Removes players from your protected chests.
      • Example: /cremove ntall1 - This will remove ntall1 from your chest protection.
      • Advanced: /cremove -ntall1 - This will remove ALL BUT ntall1 from the chest protection.
    • /cpublic - Create a public chest.
      • Public chests allow anyone access to them, and prevents others from locking it.
    • /cunlock - Remove a private protection from a password locked chest.

    Flags:
    • Hoppers - /lwc flag hopper - Enable hopper use on your protected chest.
    • Magnet - /lwc flag magnet - Make your protected chest automatically pick up items dropped on or near it.

    Happened to me as well at first, but then it started say created a private chest. Just wait a few minutes and it should work.

    my old server had a similar system :D it's a lot simpler

    EDIT: and since we now have 2 lock protections, we could use both on one chest. YAAAAAAAY :D

    ugh im sorry, not trying to bring any offense here but i think this new system is overcomplicated and dumb. the signs were easy...place it, write it. thats it! SO WHAT IF WE HAVE LAGG?! the first people who played minecraft mulitplayer expirenced constant and massive lagg, THEY DIDNT COMPLAIN! I am sorry but seriously guys, i used laggy computers all my life and im still living! all i am trying to say is that it was better left alone.

    Actually, lwc is simple. All you need to do is type a command, and punch something. Plus, client lag causes too much trouble for many players.

    well how about looking at the bright side? we now have a less laggy server that much more people go on so its for the better...I'm sorry you feel this way about the change :/ it is also simpler as it doesnt need you to have more wood than nescessary to protect your stuff... so no wasted resources + easy commands = happier players

    I have updated the top post to include information on how to enable hoppers for your protected chests.
