  • `allowWhenBlocked` -- Set to true to allow player to use /mymini while building blocked
  • `useCooldown` -- Enforce a cooldown for minutes between use of /mymini.
  • `useNoEscape` -- Use the NoEscape plugin to check and prevent command use while "raid blocked" per that plugin
  • `useFriends` -- Use Friends plugin to control mount access
  • `useClans` -- Use Clans plugin to control mount access
  • `useTeams` -- Use Rust teams to control mount access
  • `copterDecay` -- Enable decay
  • `allowDamage` -- Enable/allow damage (pre-0.4.0 standard and current default)
  • `killOnSleep` -- Kill the copter when the user leaves the server
  • `allowFuelIfUnlimited` -- Allow unlimited permission users to add fuel anyway.  NOTE: They will not be given fuel to start the copter in this case.  Otherwise, it could be abused to create fuel by repeatedly running /mymini and /nomini.  Minor, but still a thing.
  • `allowDriverDismountWhileFlying` -- Allow the driver to dismount while flying above minDismountHeight.
  • `allowPassengerDismountWhileFlying` --  Allow passenger to dismount while flying above minDismountHeight.
  • `allowRespawnWhenActive` -- If true, /mymini will destroy and rebuild the player's mini.  If false, the player should get a warning that they already have a mini.
  • `stdFuelConsumption` -- Adjust fuel consumption per second from standard amount (0.25f)
  • `cooldownmin` -- Minutes to wait between usage of /mymini
  • `mindistance` -- Miniumum distance to copter for using /nomini
  • `gminidistance` -- Miniumum distance to copter for using /gmini
  • `minDismountHeight` -- Miniumum height for dismount (for allow rules above)
  • `startingFuel` -- How much fuel to start with for non-unlimited permission players (default 0)  NOTE: This can be abused, but that's your call.
  • `Prefix` -- Prefix for chat messages (default [MyMiniCopter: ])
  • `TimedHover` -- Use a timer to limit how long a copter can remain in hover mode
  • `DisableHoverOnDismount` -- Disable hover if no players are seated
  • `EnableRotationOnHover` -- Allow the driver to rotate the copter while hovering
  • `PassengerCanToggleHover` -- Allow the passenger to toggle hovering
  • `HoverWithoutEngine` -- Hover with engine stopped
  • `UseFuelOnHover` -- Use fuel while hovering
  • `HoverDuration` -- How long the copter will hover if TimedHover is true
  • `UseKeystrokeForHover` -- Allow use of middle mouse button (by default) to toggle hovering
  • `HoverKey` -- Set the key used for hover toggling (default is middle mouse button)
  • `StopEngineOnGMini` -- Set to true to both stop the engine on a mini AND dismount players seated on it when running /gmini.  However, if the copter is over 10m off the ground, it will still show a message that the copter is flying instead.  (More to come here...)
  • VIPSettings -- Override specific values for members with the named permission.  See the example config.

Set "Value in meters" for gmini or nomini to 0 to disable the requirement (default).

Notes on hovering

  1. The player/owner must have the myminicopter.hover permission.
  2. Some code was borrowed from HelicopterHover but modified for our purposes.  Essentially, the parts that maintain height and control fuel usage are from that plugin.  See the plugin code for more details.
  3. Fuel usage is still disabled if the player has the unlimited permission.
  4. While hovering, if UseKeystrokeForHover is enabled, the driver can click the middle mouse button to toggle hovering on and off.
  5. Also, if UseKeystrokeForHover is enabled, the BACK button (S) will become the stabilzation button while hovering.  This allows the player to automatically right the minicopter.
  6. If UseKeystrokeForHover is NOT enabled (false), then neither of these functions work.  To toggle hovering in that case, use the /hmini chat command.
  7. If you want to use another key instead of MMB, you must use one that the game will actually send.  This is generally limited to WASD, Shift, Ctrl, and perhaps a few others.  Be careful not to interfere with other player motion commands, map, etc.
