Issue Details#584 Show players, with arrows in chat, where a block is if they're looking for it

  • Priority: Someday
  • Number: 584
  • Type: Feature
  • Status: Accepted
  • Age: 12 Days


If there were a priority lower than "Someday," that'd be it.

Users can do a lookup and select an id for the event, and it will target that block and figure out where it is relative to the player, and direct them to it.

Each 4 steps or so, we could send them an arrow in chat, like:

     /    \
   /   4    \
 /  blocks    \
 -----   ------
      |  |
      |  |

until they're there, where it would say "right below you" or something.

The arrow could point in different directions depending on where it is.

I have had trouble with finding where certain blocks are in the past, and this might just be a cool feature to help with that without mods.

However, this may be hard to follow and hard to understand. Not many plugins use chat for directions and such, and that's probably the reason why.

This is a difficult thing to implement and it would be a pain to add in, but who knows. It's a cool idea, and might help people a little.
