Moving between worlds

To move between worlds you can either:

  • Use /planets or /hub to teleport to The Planets, and use the portals there;
  • Use anchors to teleport to a specific destination within a world; or
  • Use the Multiverse teleport command: /mvtp <world-name> (case sensitive; remove any leading articles from the world name).

Chat

To enter color and formatting codes in chat, use ` (a backtick) instead of §. To enter a literal backtick, escape it with another backtick.

Commands

  • /a {ls [page]|[set] [prefix/]anchorName} 
    Teleport to the specified Multiverse anchor, list anchors, or create a new anchor. See Anchors for details.

  • /bits sound [on|1|true|yes|off|0|false|no|get|?]
    Turn BITS sound announcements on or off. The setting is remembered across sessions. If get, ?, or no argument is given, the current status will be printed in chat.

  • /bits text [on|1|true|yes|off|0|false|no|get|?]
    Turn BITS text announcements on or off. The setting is remembered across sessions. If get, ?, or no argument is given, the current status will be printed in chat.

  • /fly [1|true|0|false|get|? [<player>]]
    Turn flight on or off. This is useful when playing with low FPS. The mode may be given as a number or a word. Only operators may change the game mode for other players or for players who are not allowed to fly in a given world.

    If the mode is omitted, or if get or ? is used as the mode, then the current flight mode will be printed in chat.

  • /gm [<mode>[!]|get|? [<player>]]
    Get or set the game mode. The mode may be given as a number or a word. If the player is flying or not on the ground, then the change will be denied. (You may force a change by appending ! to the game mode.) Only operators may change the game mode for other players.

    If the mode is omitted, or if get or ? is used as the mode, then the current game mode will be printed in chat.

  • /motd
    Prints the current MOTD that is normally shown after logging in.

  • /rules [page-number]
    Prints the server rules. Shortcut for /help rules.

  • /tagline
    Prints the current tagline that is displayed in the server list.

  • /vercotti [-d|–dino|(-l|–luigi)|–] message
    Speak as Luigi Vercotti or Dino Vercotti (recurring characters from Monty Python's Flying Circus). Useful for blackmailing other players.

  • /yaw <degrees>|snap/s/#|round/r/~|? [<player>]
    /pitch <degrees>|snap/s/#|round/r/~|? [<player>]
    Get or set your yaw (direction you're looking on the x-axis) or pitch (direction you're looking on the y-axis). Using snap, s, or # will cause your angle to be rounded to the nearest 45 degree angle. Using round, r, or ~ will cause your current angle to be rounded to the nearest integer. Only ops may set the yaw or pitch of other players.

The source code for some of these commands is available on Bitbucket.

Anchors

To list anchors, use /a ls [page-number]. (TODO: Implement /a sl.)

Internally, all anchors are prefixed with the first letter of the world name followed by a slash. This prefix may be used in /a to teleport directly to an anchor in a different world, and it may be omitted to travel to an anchor in the same world.

Anchors may be set with /a set anchorname, which will take care of adding the proper prefix to the beginning. Please do not use /mv anchor to set an anchor or manually specify a prefix with /a set.

The naming scheme for BITS station anchors is the name of the anchor all-lowercase, with hyphens instead of spaces. The words “station”, “tower”, or “transit centre” should be left off. Exceptions include Bnayland Prison Station (prison). Lady Labyrinth Transit Centre is available with both lltc and lady-labyrinth.

Plugins

We run a variety of plugins. See the plugins list for more info.
