Teleport Request

A mod that allows players to send a teleport request.
(See "How to use" below for more information.)

Privileges:

Each command needs a privilege. These are the following privileges:

  • tp is requiered in order to use all commands.
  • tp_tpc is requiered in order to use /tpc
  • tp_tpc is requiered in order to use /tpe
  • tp_tpc is requiered in order to use /tpj
  • interact is also requiered to use all commands.
    tp_admin overrides everything: e.g. you can teleport to players even when they haven't decided to accept, or not. You can also teleport him/her to you (this happens only when enable_immediate_teleport is enabled on config.lua).
    Players can also teleport to coordinates, however, if the area is protected, the teleport will be denied.

How to use:

Each command does a function. "Example Usage" is an example of how to use the command.
Note there must be 2 players in order to make the commands to work: a player must send a request to another player (see https://wiki.minetest.net/Server or see https://wiki.minetest.net/Setting_up_a_server for more information).
There are two methods of sending a request:

  1. A request which teleports you to the specified player (command /tpr <player>).
  2. A request which teleports the specified player to you (command /tphr <player>).

To accept a request some sent you, you must use /tpy.
These are the following commands available in-game:

/tpr [playername]

  • Name: Teleport Request
  • Description: Requests permission to teleport to another player, where [playername] is their exact name.
  • Required Privileges: interact, tp
  • Example Usage: /tpr RobbieF - requests permission from RobbieF to teleport to them.
  • Notes: Usernames are case-sensitive. If you have "tp_admin" privilege, you will immediately teleport to the specificed player (does not apply if enable_immediate_teleport setting is disabled, enabled by default).

/tphr [playername]

  • Name: Teleport Here Request
  • Description: Request permission to teleport another player to you.
  • Required Privileges: interact, tp
  • Example Usage: /tphr RobbieF - requests RobbieF to teleport to you.
  • Notes: Usernames are case-sensitive. If you have "tp_admin" privilege, RobbieF will teleport to you immediately (does not apply if enable_immediate_teleport setting is disabled, enabled by default).

/tpc [x,y,z]

  • Name: Teleport to Coordinates
  • Description: Teleport to coordinates.
  • Required Privileges: interact, tp_tpc, tp
  • Notes: Honors area protection: if the area is protected, it must be owned by you in order to teleport to it, or you must have "areas" privilege in order to teleport to those coordinates (this works only when areas is installed).

/tpj [axis] [distance]

  • Name: Teleport Jump
  • Description: Teleport a specified distance along a single specified axis.
  • Required Privilege: interact", tp, tp_tpc
  • Available Options for axis: x, y, z
  • Example Usage: '/tpj y 10' - teleport 10 nodes into the air.

/tpe

  • Name: Teleport Evade
  • Description: In a sticky situation? Evade your enemy by teleporting to several nearby coordinates in random pattern. There's no knowing where you'll end up.
  • Required Privileges: interact, tp_tpc, tp
  • Example Usage: '/tpe' - teleports you to a random number of random coordinates in an evasive pattern.

/tpy

  • Description: Accept a user's request to teleport to you or teleport you to them.

/tpn

  • Description: Deny a user's request to teleport to you or teleport you to them.

License

LGPL-2.1 for everything.

Contributors:

All those who contributed to the original mod (please see init.lua).

Configuring the mod

Open your minetest.conf located in your Minetest directory.
Set the values of the settings you'd like to.

Available options are:

tp.timeout_delay = 60
tp.enable_immediate_teleport = true
tp_enable_tpp_command = false

Those values are the default values of the mod.
You can also go to your Minetest, Settings tab, All settings, Mods, and you'll find tpr there.
Or another way to do it, is changing the values in settingtypes.txt.

Installation

  • Unzip the archive, rename the folder to tpr and place it in ..minetest/mods/

  • GNU/Linux: If you use a system-wide installation place it in ~/.minetest/mods/.

  • If you only want this to be used in a single world, place the folder in ..worldmods/ in your world directory.

TODO:

  • Make it so if a player attempts to teleport to coordinates within a protected area owned by another player, and that player is online, the owner receives a request to allow or deny the user from teleporting to their area.
  • Add limitations to /tpc which only allow a user to teleport X number of blocks. Prevents users from teleporting to the edge of the world.
  • Assess value in changing all tpr-based chat commands to one global command such as /tp to reduce the chance of confusion between tps_admin and the original mod (and also make it so people don't have to remember so many commands).
  • Create a better sound effect for teleport and apply it to all teleport methods (not just /tpc)
  • Rewrite to place all chat commands into one single command much like how /teleport works.
  • Make evade respect land: no teleporting inside land, but instead make sure player is standing on surface or in water.

If you think something else should be added to this list, submit an issue.
