So I’ve fixed a couple of the bugs (most of the ones for the console commands), and am preparing to release it. The earliest it will be released is Monday or Tuesday however due to an unfortunate incident with a coffee table and a LCD. So once I can fix all of the console commands I’ll release 1.8.1, which will also check for updates to the item list when you start the server if you have auto-update enabled. I also have already updated the CSV for the impending 1.9 update and will release that when I release 1.8.1. Thank you for all the support, in helping make ClearInv a success.
ClearInv 1.8 is released finally as a major update. It took almost as long as it took Notch to release 1.8 haha. But in all seriousness, it has now been released, and is up for download. Due to the major changes in this update it will not come as an auto-update due to possible incompatibilities. There are a few known bugs in this version that I will be working on, for example /clear armor does not appear to work, you can’t selectively clear players inventories from the server console, and the superperms integration I added may be a bit buggy. For more information check out my page linked at the beginning or my post on the bukkit forums.
Ok so I’m still trying to patch up two distinct bugs for the 1.8 version of ClearInv. In order to be transparent, the first bug is if you are trying to clear an item with a damage value, like the old version it will not recognize the damage values, compare them and remove if necessary, it will remove all the items with that ID, even if it has a different damage value. I am also fighting with a null pointer exception for the clear except, which has slowed that down (i am focusing on the normal clearing) so hopefully I can get some good advice on the bukkit forums, and will be able to release this very soon. I’m sorry I could not make it in time for bukkit for v. 1.8 of minecraft.
Julian Assange, founder of wikileaks, and hater of the sun (I mean come on, look how pale he is), has a book being published by Canongate Books, a Scottish publishing company. Now although it has been well-known that Assange wanted to write a book, part memoir, part manifesto, this one is not the one he wanted to write, in fact, it would appear he does not want this to be published at all, which must have US officials grinning ear to ear reading about this.
So this post is about two things. I am currently working on fixing v. 1.8 of ClearInv up because in the shower I realized a bug in my code (I need to get a life if I’m thinking about code in the shower). I realized that the way that I had set it up, if you had say told it to clear wool, it would clear all wools instead of just 0 damage wool (it only affects 0 damage items), so hopefully I can write up a solution for that today. I would also like to mention a certain minecraft video that I can’t stop watching, and that is Revenge by: CaptainSparklez, this is the same guy that made TNT, he is very talented and has worked very hard on this video, and it shows. Good Job CaptainSparklez. Check it out after the jump: Read more
Well it’s been a while since I updated ClearInv, and v. 1.8 coincides with Notches 1.8 release (no I did not plan this conspiracy theorists). Version 1.8 is quite a major update as it rewrites how much of the base functionality works.
- First off, I have written a ~1,600 line CSV of minecraft item names, id, damage, and output names, which will be available for anyone who would like to use it in their plugins, please give me credit though as this took a while, and was quite tedious.
- In this rewrite I made it so that you can clear specific color wool, for example if you want to clear lime wool you can do /clear 35:5 or /clear limewool (or /clear lime i think, i forget). Needless to say, this will be a very nice addition to the plugin.
- I have added an option in the config file to use super perms, this is set to false by default, but if you set it to true it will use that, all the nodes are the same.
- I have also included all the latest items that came with 1.8 in the csv, so don’t despair, it’s there.
Once bukkit updates for 1.8 I will test it to make sure it works, and that nothing in the bukkit update breaks it, and then I will release the update. So sit tight people, 1.8 is on its way!
Many are unprepared for the sites and spectacles that they will see upon entering Maker Faire, at awe of all the spectacles, like the fire-breathing dragons, the people in steampunk outfits, the homemade bicycles and tricycles of all kinds, and robots of many kinds. You never forget your first Maker Faire, I remember mine like it was yesterday, because it was yesterday. Maker Faire New York was on the 17th and 18th of September at the Science Hall of Fame in Queens NY, and some of the greatest makers, and supporters of makers around were there. I was only able to attend Saturday, but here was my experience and what I will take away from Maker Faire 2011. (I apologize ahead of time for the quality of the images and videos, they were taken with my cell phone) Read more
Many professional companies offer their software to students at no charge, many times it will be the full version of the software. As a student I find this quite nice, and there is a benefit to the companies to offer their software at no cost to the students. You may ask, “Sean what does Autodesk gain from giving away their $3,000+ software for free?” Well I’m glad you asked, the advantage for them is that the students will know how to use their software proficiently which will make it more likely that companies will purchase their software for their employees. So here are two examples of companies that offer their software for free to students, and where to get it legally: Read more
On Tuesday September 13th, the University of Rhode Island invited Dr. Ray Kurzweil to speak at the honors colloquium. For those of you who have never heard of Dr. Kurzweil, here is a little background information about him. Dr. Kurzweil is an inventor; he is credited with inventing the first CCD flatbed scanner, the first omni-font optical character recognition system (OCR), the first print to speech system for the blind, and many other things. Forbes magazine ranked him number 8 among inventors in the United States, comparing him to Thomas Edison, and PBS includes him as one of 16 “revolutionaries who made America”. He has also been inducted to the National Inventors Hall of Fame by the US Patent office. Dr. Kurzweil has also received 19 honorary doctorates at the time of writing this. And in September of 2008 Dr. Kurzweil founded a University in 2008, Singularity University, which is backed by Google, and is on the NASA Ames campus. Read more
