Craft Inc. Gates

We recently spend some time on improving the Ancient Gate plugin originally developed by Olof Larsson.

You can find the latest version available as source code on Github. But there is also a jar file available.

Craft Inc. Gates – Easily create portals with custom design

(previously known as AncientGates)

With this plugin players can create gates that will teleport anyone who enter the gate to specific a location.
The hightlights are: It is so darn easy to use! and The gates can look any way you like

Try the ingame command: /gate

Check out our Craft Inc. Minecraft Server! Everyone is welcome!

Thought first you should take a look at the demonstration oloflarsson and karibu6 created:


Who can create a gate?

See the Permissions section.

Who can destroy a gate?

Anyone if you do not use a third-party protection plugin like Grief Prevention.

Are there IConnomy integration, Features for user to dial other gates etc?

Nope. This plugin is very minimalistic and plain. Server operators manage the portals players use them any time they are open.


Note that the commands mentioned in this section will be made available with the upcoming 2.1 release of Craft Inc. Gates! Meanwhile type ‘/gate help’ while playing to see the current set of commands.

With the /gate plugin you can create gates which will teleport players anywhere you want. Just build a portal (like those nether portal). The gates can look any way you like.

To make the gate work place yourself in a newly created gate frame and type /gate create [id]. Afterwards walk to the destination of your portal and type /gate exit [id] to set the destination. With /gate open [id] you can get your newly created gate to work.

To hide a gate simply call /gate hide [id]. Now that gate won’t have purple blocks when open. You can even remove the frame without stopping the hidden gate from working. But unhiding a gate without a frame is not possible!

Use the following commands to modify your gates even further:

  • /gate close,c [id]
    Closes a gate to prevent players from using it.

  • /gate create,new [id]
    Creates a gate at your current location.

  • /gate delete,del,remove,rm [id]
    Removes the gate from the game.

  • /gate exit,e [id]
    Changes the location where the gate will teleport players to your current location.

  • /gate help,h,? [page]
    Prints the help pages

  • /gate hide,h [id]
    Makes a gate NOT consist of gate blocks while open.

  • /gate info,details,i,d [id]
    Prints detailed informations about a certain gate.

  • /gate list,ls [page]
    Prints all availiable gates.

  • /gate location,l [id]
    Sets the entrance of the gate to your current location.

  • /gate open,o [id]
    Open a gate so players can use it.

  • /gate rename,changename,cn [current name][new name]
    Changes the name/id of the gate.
