PROJECT IS DISCONTINUED, DOWNLOAD AND USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

Brief Overview

Have you ever dreamed about having a phone in Minecraft? We all have, and now is your chance!

As of now, the plugin offers the most "important" features (which I will state further down), but due to the plugin being fairly new you can expect awesome new features and updates sooner or later. To-Do list is also further down.

The concept is simple and yet advanced: When logging on the server you do not own a phone, you have to manually register it which you do by performing the "/register" command. Once you are registered, you will be saved and you can logout, server can restart, etc... and you do not have to register again. And just like in real life, you have to fill out certain credentials/criteria in order for your phone to fully function. The criteria includes now but is not limited to later: Name, Desired Phone number, and Address; please note that you may use fake name, fake phone number (not your IRL number), and fake address- we don't want creeps to be stalking you because they found out your Minecraft-phone number! The number also has a criteria it has to reach itself: it must be 8-digits long (as in the case of Norway's defaults), and it must be unique (i.e: you cannot have the same phone number as another registered phone on the server)- and that's it!

The registering system is designed to make it as simple as possible for you. When your registration process has begun, and it asks you for certain information, just type it out aloud in chat; don't worry though, your message won't show up publicly in chat.

The cool part: when you're all set, you can dial (call) other registered users (phones). When you call/dial someone they have 20 seconds (will be made configurable) to respond, if they don't respond, stuff goes on as normal and you can call again or call someone else. If the player you are calling chooses to answer your call (by using "/answer"), you two then may start communicating. "How do we communicate?", simple- just type your messages aloud in chat (again, don't worry, it won't be shown public). Both of you can end the call at whatever moment you like (by using "/endcall"). After ending a call you may start dialing other people and you can chat normally again. Please note that you can also use "/endcall" to not answer a incoming call or if you're the caller, cancel your call.

P.S: As for now, you may not use Usernames (i.e: "/dial;text;etc PvPdog"), you would have to actually use the number which you can get by asking the player (like in real life!). Appropriate usage example: "/dial 73546372".

The plugin now also offers a GUI Phone User Interface (download latest version: 2.0).

Using all the phone's function REQUIRES you to be registered!

Commands / Permissions

register: Register for a phone

account: View your credentials

dial: Make a call

answer: Answer a incoming call

endcall: End an on-going call

text: Text someone

myphone: Open phone

dialhelp: Dial - Help central

NO PERMISSIONS! as for now.

To-Do

The plugin is VERY new and a lot of features are coming soon, hopefully. Here's a list of features which I got in my mind: ✓ = done

  • Texting ✓
  • Account lookups
  • Contacts ✓
  • GUI Phone User Interface ✓
  • Funny/simple apps (maybe?) ✓
  • Ability to edit your credentials (like Phone number)
  • Add battery - life to phone (MAYBE???)
  • Ability to turn off phone
  • Ability to setup centrals with special numbers (like 911) where multiple people with a specific permission can choose to answer. This can maybe be a very cool idea for a staff support central.
  • Admin Logs, Commands like /seediallog [USERNAME] To See Who They Dialed And Who They Answered, Or /togglespydialchat, And Maybe /confiscatephone [Username]

I am open to new ideas! I am not very creative myself.. Haha.
