SingleplayerSave world specific bookmarks to locations you travel to as "travelpoints", then easily teleport to those locations.
You can also create transporter pads whose destination can be set to an existing travelpoint, no need to ever enter coords by hand.
While meant for multiplayer servers, the global travelpoints features are available in singleplayer mode.
MultiplayerEach user with the "travelpoints' privilege can set and drop their own collection of travelpoints. This privilege also allows the use of global travelpoints.
Users with the "tpglobal" privilege can set and drop global travelpoints.
Users with the "travelpads" privilege can place transporter pads which can be set to one of their own travelpoints or to a global travelpoint.
Chat CommandsThe travelpoints mod allows you to save world specific, location bookmarks to the places you travel using "/tpset <title>".
You can then use "/tpgo <title>" to teleport to the given location.
If you wish to return to the location you just came from, use "/tpback".
You can list your collection of travelpoints by using the command "/tpgo".
If you want to delete an old travelpoint you no longer need, use "/tpdrop <title>".
For setting a global travelpoint, use "/tpgset". For listing and using global travelpoints, use "/tpggo". For dropping a global travelpoint use "/tpgdrop".
For more commands, and more thorough explanation of the above commands, see section 5 of the readme.txt.
Transporter PadsTransporter pads allow you to fast travel without having to use chat commands. They are useful in large complexes so you can go from one area or floor to another just by walking onto a pad.
Place a transporter pad where you want it, then right click it. There can sometimes be a moment of lag between the time you place it and when it will let you access its interface.
Before you can choose a destination for the pad, you must list the available travelpoints. Press "My Travelpoints" to list your own, or press "Global Travelpoints" to list the global collection.
When the list appears you can then choose a destination for the pad.
After choosing a destination the list will clear, and the pad will become active.
You can change the destination any time you need to.
To list all the transporter pads you have placed use the chat command "/travelpads".
When playing multiplayer you can also set usage modes, allowing only you to use the transporter pad, anyone to use the pad, you and a list of players, or everyone except a list of players.
There are also decorative nodes, one is a receiving pad that you can place at the destination of your transporter pad, the other is a light that can be placed above either your transporter pad or receiving pad.
For more information about the nodes included in this mod see section 6 of the readme.txt.
RestrictionsThere are no restrictions in singleplayer mode.
Admins of multiplayer servers are able to set restrictions in the travelpoints/config.lua file, as well as set world specific restrictions using "/travelpoints set <restriction> <value>" in game.
Server administrators can restrict the following features:
- max_travelpoints - The maximum travelpoints a player can save.
- max_travelpads - The maximum transporter pads a player can place.
- cooldown - Impose a cooldown between usage of /tpgo <title>
- clear_back_pos - Clear the return location after use.
These restrictions are further explained in the config.lua file.
VideoMinetest Mod "Travelpoints" Transporter Pad Demo 1
One minute video briefly demonstrating setting and using travelpoints, and the transporter pad interface.
Mod InstallationExtract the "travelpoints-master.zip" archive to the mods directory. Rename the extracted directory "travelpoints-master" to "travelpoints".
Textures InstallationExtract the archive of your chosen resolution and copy or move the image files within into the directory of your active texture pack.
For example, if you were using the texture pack "SummerFields", you would download the 32x32 archive above and place the images contained into the texture pack's directory: "textures/SummerFields/".
