Basic Information Edit
Diamond Doors are usable pieces of furniture that resemble a large door with a silverish metal frame and a blue gem-like non-transparent panel inside that is covered with two bent metal stripes that cross each other twice.
All doors are the size of 2 blocks in height and 1 block in width; they can only be opened and closed by players, but not by Creatures. Since update R33 on August 2nd 2016, doors can now be locked and wired to activation devices.
How to obtain Edit
Diamond Doors can be crafted in your Crafting Menu (to be opened with "q" as the default key), but only after the according crafting-recipe has been unlocked.
Unlocking the crafting recipe Edit
The crafting-recipe for Diamond Doors can be unlocked by:
- crafting (or taking) an Iron Bar Door, which in turn is unlocked after crafting an Obsidian Door
- creating Diamond Slabs in a Processor from Diamond (Bars) made from Diamond Ore that can be extracted from Nodes found on the Lava layer underground
- creating Diamond Rods in a Processor from Diamond (Bars). No crafting recipe is required for this
Crafting Diamond Doors Edit
To craft 1 Diamond Door, you'll need:
- 1 Glob of Goo made from Mold in a Processor or looted/harvested from many creatures including Pigsies
- 2 Diamond Slabs made of Diamond (bars) in a Processor
- 2 Diamond (bars) made in the Forge from Diamond Ore that can mainly be extracted from Nodes found on the Lava layer underground or can be made from Coal
- 1 Diamond Rod made of Diamond (bars) in a Processor
Crafting a Diamond Door is one of the unlocking requirements of the crafting recipe for Lumite Doors.
How to use Diamond Doors Edit
Diamond Doors can be placed into the game world for building purposes, for example into a wall of a building or to close the entrance to a cave.
If you place two doors of the same type next to each other, the doors will automatically turn towards each other and then both open simultaneously when being activated. It might be necessary to remove and place one of the doors once more if it doesn't work right away. Formerly, even different doors would connect, but this is not the case any longer.
You can rotate Diamond Doors by pressing and holding R and moving the mouse while holding the left mouse button, however only sideways because of their specific functionality.
Diamond Doors can be opened and closed after being placed by activating them (right-click or "f" as the default key when looking at them with your cursor). Creatures cannot open closed doors, but some might be able to use their special attacks through doors on your player character if they are close enough.
|Diamond Doors can be wired to activation devices like Switches, Sensors, Number Pads or Pressure Plates etc., optionally with operating gates in between, like Number Comparison Gates, Delay Gates, Flip-Flop Gates, Inverter Gates, Logic Gates, etc. Doors will then serve as receivers and can be opened, closed, flipped and locked.|
How to lock doors Edit
Currently all players can open and close unlocked doors when visiting your game-world and/or claim, even if they are set to "Visitor". Only if you lock your doors (by disabling the option "can interact" when looking at the door with a Wiring Tool equipped), other players cannot open your doors.
With the Wiring Tool equipped and activating the door (right-click or "f" by default), you can also set doors so that they will open to the other side ("flip direction"). The padlock symbol (accessible when using the Wiring Tool) lets you define the minimum permission rank that players will need to have to be able to see and change the settings of the door with their own Wiring Tool. This permission is set to "world builders" by default when placing the object (door), on claims it's set to "claim builders".
Wireable objects like doors can be activated/deactivated by players of all permission ranks, even by visitors, unless their interactivity is disabled (locked) for all players, even owners, with a Wiring Tool. When locking a door, only the owner and players with an even higher permission rank can then use Wiring Tools to change this setting ("can interact") and open the door/s. Using an activation device like a Number Pad together with a Number Comparison Gate is advised to set a number code only known to the owner and their trusted friends.
