If you need to contact me you can find me on #EnhancedPortals on irc.esper.netEver wanted to build a Stargate? Don't like the fact that portals can only be one shape? Find it annoying that your 3 block wide paths don't line up correctly with your Nether portal? Do you want your portals to go somewhere other than the Nether?Enhanced Portals allows you to create any size or shape Nether portal that you want. Unlike other mods, this mod has no limit on the size of the portal you want to create - as long as it's a valid portal (a frame of obsidian with nothing else in the way) - you're good to go.What if you don't like the boring purple colour portal? Simply take any one of the 16 dyes and use it on the portal, the dye will get used up and the portal will become that colour. You can even use these portals as decoration.Posted ImagePosted ImageThanks to painter73 for the following screenshot.Posted Image

I'm planning on adding that in a future version.

EDIT: Yes.

This reminds me of that old hMod plugin.

I want to see someone write "Portal" with portals. Bonus points if it looks like the logo to Valve's Portal.

Hey Quick Question how does one unlock a banner like that?

Also-

This is a very creative mod idea and I think is a good slight change to your minecraft game if you enjoy building things. It really increases the potential for giant gates and such. You could even make a star gate. That'd be cool.

That would be awesome.

In the next version I'm planning on making it so you can turn on/off the portal with redstone, not entirely sure how I want it to work though (New block?). It would make the stargate that much more awesome.

Maybe SMP support? It would be really nice.

I want to add horizontal portals as a minimum before I consider creating a SMP version.

Thanks Posted Image.
I noticed a small bug in that video where you had the extra bit of obsidian at the bottom, I'll work on a fix for the next version.

I'm putting all future videos in a spoiler tag, it makes the thread neater.

EDIT: Fixed the bug for the next release. There are a couple more bugs that I want to fix, as well as improving how it checks to see if it's a valid portal.

Just a quick update on the next release. Here's what I've done so far, this release is just going to be bug fixes and performance tweaks.

* Fixed portals orientating oddly when placed near obsidian/other portals. (A neat side-effect of this is putting up multiple portals next to each other to form a portal tunnel.)
* Improved detection of whether or not it's a valid portal dramatically.
* Improved flood-fill method of adding the portal blocks.
+ Added additional information when telling you that it's not a valid portal. (If the portal is too big, if you've got something in the way, etc.) This is off by default, you can turn it on in the configuration.
+ Added functionality to disable the portals sound effects and particle effects. (Change in the configuration file.)

This should be out later today or early tomorrow morning. Then, if I can't find any more bugs/etc I'll start to work on horizontal portals and possibly redstone to toggle the portal.
