For 32 gold PER CUSTOM PORTAL or 64 gold for a 2-way SixtyCity portal you can have you very own portal network!

Custom Portal examples: (Some of these examples do not apply to SixtyCity portals, as they are always 2-way push button activated portals)
Example 1:
If you wanted to have a direct route from 2 of your zones or just from 2 locations in the same zone, you could pay 32 gold per portal (64 total) and have 2 portals connected to each other that go directly from one zone to the other and back.

Example 2:
You could buy ONE portal that can connect to any other portal in the game. So if you wanted to say, have a portal go from your zone to zone 12's portal, you can. The catch is, since the other portal will still be connected to the Portal Room, when you return you'll have to go through the portal room.

Example 3:
Like above, you could also have a portal take you directly to the Wildland and/or Nether. But like above, it's a one way portal. You'll have to go through the portal room to come back.

Example 4:
You could, with a lot of money obviously, build your own mini-portal network within your zone and hop all over the place if you wanted.

Some Limitations:
- You can only place portals in property you own.
- Portals are still only usable by Established/Trusted members and above. Keep that in mind for your visitors, and don't have portal-only access to locations (Unless you purposely want that limitation).
- Portals can only portal to other portals! (Say that 10 times fast lol)
- The portals are still admin controlled, meaning you need me if you want to make changes.

An example of some "Special" things you can do with custom portals:
- 2 Players could work together, and each buy a portal and link them together for direct zone-to-zone access between their areas.
- You can have an "Always on" portal (Like the Wild/Nether portals), if you desire.
- Depending on your needs, they're ways to manipulate the portals. So sometimes I could do some other neat things. So if you want to do it, ask and I'll tell you if it can be done.

IF I'M NOT ONLINE:
1. Put your payment in a chest by your zone portal.
2. Go to where you want your new portals, and write down the coordinates. (Hit F3, write down the numbers next to X Y Z on the left side of the map)
3. Post the coordinates here.
4. Build a "fake portal" out of dirt so I know where to place it. (Do this for each portal, if more than 1)
(Looking at the portal from the front)

(<img src='http://www.sixtygig....DIR#>/blank.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':blank:' /> = Air)

OR IF WE'RE BOTH ONLINE
1. Have the gold on your person.
2. We'll work together to get everything setup.

Hey Ray, I'm wondering if it would be possible to use redstone to turn a portal on/off? So for example the only way to turn on a portal would be to use a series of levers in a certain combination. Such a portal could be used in a puzzle, or go to a storage area you want to keep secure.

erm.. maybe? I never thought about that.

But I sort of doubt it, for a few reasons;
1. The redstone needs to activate the button. (I don't think redstone can? I may be wrong..)
2. When you press the button, the portal is "assigned" to your character while it's open, meaning at the moment its opened only you can pass through. So, if somehow you managed to get a redstone circuit to hit the button for you, I don't think it'll be "assigned" to you since you didn't activate the button, you activated the red stone circuit.

But, a gate CAN be setup to be "private".. meaning only you will be able to use it. (You and ONLY you.. no one else could be added to the list).

Time for your first customer Ray. I also figure it'd be easier for both of us if, rather than making two more posts, I ask for a Portal move and Spawn Point move here as well. I hope that's ok.

I'll start off with those.

Zone Portal Move:
X = -118
Y = 44
Z = 577

Spawn Point Move:
X = -2
Y = 113
Z = 676

Next I'd like 8 new Portals. If possible I'd like them to always be on like the Nether and Wildlands Portals in the Community Zone. A couple of my new Portals will be secure (only useable by me). If these Portals can't always be on for that reason (which seems likely the more I think about what you said about buttons) then I'd like all of my Portals to be button activated. So either all of my Portals are always on, or all of them are button activated.

I'll start with the Portals useable by everyone.

Portal 1 (connected to Portal 2):
X = -128
Y = 44
Z = 577

Portal 2 (connected to Portal 1):
X = 1
Y = 58
Z = 662



Portal 3 (connected to Portal 4):
X = -144
Y = 44
Z = 577

Portal 4 (connected to Portal 3):
X = -3
Y = 113
Z = 676



Next the secure Portals only useable by me. These areas have (or will have) other means of entry as well should anyone ever want a tour.

Portal 5 (connected to Portal 6):
X = -130
Y = 44
Z = 580

Portal 6 (connected to Portal 5):
X = ***
Y = ***
Z = ***



Portal 7 (connected to Portal 8):
X = -133
Y = 44
Z = 577

Portal 8 (connected to Portal 7):
X = ***
Y - ***
Z = ***


Buy List:

Portal Move - 5 Gold
Spawn Move - 5 Gold
8 Portals - 160 Gold
Total - 170 Gold

Sell List:

30 Stacks of Cactus - 15 Gold
15 Stacks of Bone - 15 Gold
14 Stacks of Feather - 7 Gold
16 Stacks of Gunpowder - 16 Gold
10 Stacks of String - 10 Gold
52 Stacks of Redstone - 13 Gold
94 Gold - 94 Gold (double checks...yep)
Total - 170 Gold

That's all in the Trade Room next to my current Spawn Point.

p.s. I'm assuming 1 Gold Ingot = 1 Gold...otherwise scratch the order for now :mobcreeper:

Portals/Spawn/etc Done! ...phew

Hey Ray,

I have a couple of questions about the custom portals.

When do you need a button to activate it and when can it always be on?
Is a sign required to be on the portal?
If signs are required to be directly on the portals can we have custom text on the signs?

Thanks

The only time the portal can't be "Always on" is if it's a private portal. When a portal is set to "Always On" it doesn't check if you're allowed to use it or not, it just lets you in. I haven't tested it, but I think "Always On" portals will even allow the new players to use them too, even if they don't have portal system access.

Yes, a sign is required. The sign is actually where the portal data is stored. ;)

No, you can't have custom text. But you can have custom portal names. So if you want me to change them all I can. I just used "ConBas X" since you didn't provide names. Although, looking at the post, I didn't ask for any either! Doh! :P

LINE 1 --> Current Portal's Name
LINE 2 --> Name of Portal it connects to
LINE 3 --> "Portal Network" it is assigned to.

Can I get an extra portal that goes to the Portal Hub? I want to keep the one that I already have, and this would be the one that goes from Portal Hub-->My zone. The New one would be a one way portal to the Portal Hub.

New portal:
x= -888
y= 80
z= 918

20 gold in trade room.

Your gates up, although, due to a glitch I'm working on I had to set it to "always on". For some reason when the push button type gate was activated, it became the primary gate instead of your old one. (So when you return, you'd go to that gate instead)..

I'd like 2-way portals set up connecting my workshops.

1st Portal:
X 624
Y 74
Z -65

2nd Portal:

X 525
Y 74
Z 123

40g will be in trade chest next to my main portal.

Thanks!

Done!

Although, I was unsure what to name them. If you don't like the current names just let me know what you'd like instead.

Does this mean we can get portals of non-standard sizes? For instance can I get a portal that is in the shape of 7 diameter circle? How about a portal frame not made of obsidian?

Is it possible to have a portal in my main house which connects to the existing one in the center of the plat? If so, then may I have one mad when you get a chance?

The dimensions are:

-453
-1756
79 height

I made a fake portal out of dirt blocks at that location and the gold is in the chest right in front of it. The location is in the basement of the Tudor Mansion I'm building and I'd like to be able to get back and forth from the center of the town (existing portal) to the basement.

Thanks

I can do that, but keep in mind that it'll only be one way. When you try to return you'll end up in the portal hub instead. Is that wha you wanted? ;)

If you can afford it, I would recommend adding a second portal next to your zone portal so you can have 2 way travel instead.

Ah - perhaps the 2nd portal is the best bet then. I'll set up another dirt mockup where I would like the 2nd one. Would that be 32 gold bars for each one or 64 for each one?

Thanks

Ok - I think Ihave it now. One portal is at the center of the map and the other will be at the coords I mentioned earlier. I have outlines of both made out of dirt blocks. If they are going to be in stargate format (with a button to activate) can I get the one located in the town to face the middle? I'll place a sign on the side that I would like it to face.

Thanks.
