Replace Lift with LiftReloaded

  • As the title says, I suggest replacing the Lift plugin with LiftReloaded:
    Spigot Listing:


    Currently Lift not only is outdated but has a number of issues on TF, including but not limited to (from my testing):

    • Creating Lifts sometimes often just doesn't work at all EDIT: Turns out it's just unintuitive as fuck.
    • Lifts will maybe raise you as far as halfway before leaving you to float in the air in what I'm dubbing a "Limbo state"; This can be kinda-sorta fixed by just flying up/down, but that defeats the point of the Lift. Attempting to leave the Lift while in this limbo state will result in being spammed with "Can't leave elevator in use". Anti-kb bug, ignore my stupidity.
    • If you're in survival while using the lift, then switch to creative when it leaves you floating in the air, you can fly the rest of the way up/down, but when you exit the elevator you will no longer be able to fly at all, despite now being in creative. EDIT: Even with a properly functioning Lift, this still happens. Not a major issue, but yeah.
    • Right clicking the Lift sign does not change the destination floor for multi-level lifts (3+ floors). This could be because Operators don't have the "lift.change" permission, but I can't say for sure. If that's the case, I'm guessing the dumpster fire that's TFs permissions system would prohibit this being fixed easily.

    A fix (or possible cause?) for the "Limbo" issue is using /gravity to enable or disable gravity for yourself, as mentioned by Fleek in

    however, this is just a workaround, and not even a good one at that.

    No idea when/if replacing Lift could happen given what I know about TFM and the updates being planned, but hopefully it can happen :)

    TL;DR To the strikethroughs/edits:
    The limbo bug is an unintended side-affect of some anti-kb stuff. Nevertheless, given how old, and unintuitive it is, my request still stands, just slightly less important I guess.

    im vouching, quite a few of my iconic builds have had lifts put in by other players but even with some looking up i cant fucking for the life of me figure out how to make one

  • Why not? Just test it and, if it's an up to date and easier to use alternative, I'm all in.

    You need to hit it with a block in your hand to change the destination. I agree the documentation is scarce and the plugin is very unintuitive. There's a YT video somewhere.

  • I'll test out the block thing later, seems weird but not surprising.

    Edit: Yep, tapping with a block makes it work. What the hell the person who created this was smoking, idk, but that's just stupid.
