s2b - Schematic to bo2 coverter
This ruby script converts minecraft *.schematic files into *.bo2 files which is highly usable when creating custom trees for the plugin TerrainControl. You build your custom tree ingame, select it and export it with WorldEdit.
- download the file s2b.rb from this repository.
- install ruby
- install the nbtfile gem
- run s2b.rb once. This will create the folders "in" and "out" next to s2b.rb
- place all *.schematics files in that folder named "in".
- run s2b.rb.
- The "out" folder now contains all new .bo2 files
Special behavior and Suggested workflow
This script have some special behaviors:
- Air blocks are not exported - Because in general you want the bo2 to to be transparent.
Use the BBOB application to add in air blocks afterwards.
- Magenta wool is not exported - Use magenta wool for cuboid min and max points.
Since these will be in the WorldEdit selection it is handy if they are not exported.
- Dark blue wool is not exported - We use this to stop wines from growing to long.
- If the name of the .schematic file ends with R5 (as in Root-depth 5) a z-offset of 5 will be used.
The numer can of cource be any number and is not limited to 5.
This is how we do it on MassiveCraft:
Create a creative world on your server using a multiworld plugin such as MultiVerse-Core. You may also want to keep separate inventories for that world using a plugin such as MultiVerse-Inventories. To make that world be a nice huge grass field you will want to use a custom world generator for it. We suggest
Now you can let people build custom trees there. The players place a sign with the name of the custom tree on top of the WorldEdit maxpoint. The name should end with something like R5 to make use of the z-offset feature.
We use a plugin called WorldEditSignSave. It will save the current WorldEdit clipboard using the name of the sign you are currently looking at. We will release this plugin when we get time.
